Morgan Bagley Notches Top-5 Finish in Deep Fried 75
Spooky 50 on the Docket Next

Longview, Texas (10/18/18) – Saturday night found Morgan Bagley charging through the field in his P&W Sales #14m / XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model to score a fourth-place finish in Duck River Raceway Park’s Deep Fried 75.

“The weekend was definitely an uphill battle for us,” Bagley noted. “We again had generator issues on the hauler, so we had to borrow electrical power. We got into the main event but had to start mid-pack. Luckily, I was able to pick up several spots before the track took rubber around lap 15. Even though we had an even better car than what we showed, we just had to ride in line for the rest of the race. Overall, it was a pretty good weekend or us, when you look at everything we had to overcome.”

Morgan Bagley made the trip to Duck River Raceway Park (Wheel, Tennessee) on Friday night for the seventh annual Deep Fried 75. With 36 Super Late Models on hand for the two-day event, Morgan followed up the seventh-fastest time in his qualifying group with a runner-up finish in his heat race behind Jadon Frame.

Earning the 14th-starting position for the $14,500-to-win A-Main on Saturday night, Bagley picked up several spots early in the finale. He had high hopes for the remainder of the feature, but the track became one-laned before lap 20. As a result, he would settle into the Top-5 in the running order before ultimately crossing the finish line in the fourth position behind Billy Moyer Jr., Riley Hickman, and Victor Lee.

This weekend – October 19-20 – Team 14 will invade Chatham Speedway (Chatham, Louisiana) for the annual Spooky 50. A $2,000-to-win program will be held on Friday night, while Saturday will see a $9,000 winner’s check on the line. The weekend is being sanctioned by the Louisiana Late Model Series.

Scott Bloomquist Secures Fourth-Place Finish in 48th World 100
Set to Chase $100,000 at Dirt Track World Championship

Mooresburg, Tennessee (10/18/18) – Scott Bloomquist picked up a fourth place finish in the finale for the 48th annual World 100 in his Reece Monuments #0 Petroff Towing/ Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

“We were a little off from where we needed to be in Saturday night’s feature,” Bloomquist said. “If I could do it over, I would’ve changed things up a little bit. Then in the feature, I slid my tires battling (Devin) Gilpin for position, and it took me a while to get my momentum back up. This place (Eldora Speedway) is different every time you come here, and that’s what I love about it. We’ll come back next year and give it another try.”

Scott Bloomquist resumed his pursuit of a fifth World 100 title on Saturday afternoon at Ohio's Eldora Speedway in his Reece Monuments #0 Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

After seeing Friday's show pushed to Saturday afternoon by rain, Scott started his outing by qualifying fourth fastest in time trials. He then raced to a third-place finish in his heat race, but after not realizing he had to go to post-race tech, he was scored on the tail of his heat race.

As a result, he was forced to start on the tail of a B-Main. Despite starting on the back of the consolation event Bloomquist advanced to a runner-up finish, which positioned his 19th on the starting grid for the 25-lap, $10,000-to-win feature. By the time that the checkered flag dropped he had advanced to an 11th-place finish.

Via his performances in preliminary action, Scott started on the outside-front-row of the first heat race for Saturday night's program. He raced to the win in the heat race, which locked him into the sixth-starting spot for Saturday night's 100-lap finale.

In the $51,000-to-win main event Scott raced to as high as the second spot in the finale, but would be unable to get to the lead. He ultimately registered a fourth-place finish behind Tim McCreadie, Jimmy Owens, and Tyler Erb.

Full results from the weekend can be found at .

This weekend – October 19-20 – Scott will return to competition with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series during the 38th annual Rhino Ag Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth Raceway Park (Portsmouth, Ohio). The event will post a $100,000 winner’s check and marks the final LOLMDS race of the 2018 campaign. Scott is a three-time champion of the mega event.

Bloomquist is currently third in the latest LOLMDS standings. For complete standings and more details on this weekend’s crown jewel, please visit .

All Star Champ Reutzel Chases Trophy Cup Title this Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (October 18, 2018) – The 2018 season has already been a stellar one for Clute, TX, native Aaron Reutzel.

Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team secured the All Star Circuit of Champions title less than two weekends ago.

Now, Reutzel is taking to the left coast for the weekend to pursue the 25th Annual Trophy Cup title at Tulare, California’s Thunderbowl Raceway.  Reutzel takes the wheel of Willie Kahne’s No. 51 entry for the noted event that takes place over three nights beginning on Thursday.

Thunderbowl Raceway has proven to be one of Reutzel’s favorites, as he opened this season with his first career World of Outlaws feature win in just the third night of competition of the newly-formed BRM No. 87 Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team.

It proved to be a sign of things to come, as Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment crew have since rolled on to 11 overall wins and the All Star Circuit of Champions title.

After winning the Peter Murphy Classic in his maiden voyage at Thunderbowl Raceway in 2015, Reutzel raced to a top-ten finish in his first Trophy Cup outing in 2016.

Reutzel comes off of another strong World of Outlaws effort last weekend aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway.

After a Jacksonville rainout on Friday, Reutzel timed in sixth on Sunday at Eldora and raced to a third-place finish in heat race action to earn the 11th starting position for the main event.

“I didn’t feel like we qualified as well as we should have,” Reutzel said of the early portion of the night.

After losing a pair of positions early in the feature, Reutzel climbed back up to ninth before wall contact brought an early end to the evening.

“We were pretty good in the feature, but we weren’t good enough to pass cars,” Reutzel explains.  “We just couldn’t make a good run in the middle.  I finally tried to make a big slider for ninth and just got into the fence and that was our night.”

Reutzel looks to make it an even dozen wins or more this weekend in Trophy Cup competition at the Thunderbowl Raceway.

2018 Quick Stats:  69 races, 11 wins, 27 top-fives, 39 top-tens.

Next Up:  25th Annual Trophy Cup at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA, on Thursday through Saturday.

McIntosh Ready for Illinois Midget Triple after POWRi Top-Ten Run & STN Debut

Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (October 18, 2018) – Cannon McIntosh continues to turn heads as he gains invaluable experience in both the Sprint Car and Midget ranks.

After racing to a top-ten finish in POWRi Midget action last Saturday night at Belle-Claire Speedway, McIntosh and the RL Hudson/Toyota-TRD No. 08 Midget team venture back to Illinois this weekend for a trio of events beginning on Friday night.

The weekend begins with a pair of POWRi National events at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday and then Marion’s Southern Illinois Raceway on Saturday before rounding it out with Sunday’s USAC National Midget-sanctioned “Jason Leffler Memorial” at Wayne City’s Wayne County Speedway.

The 15-year-old made his first start at Jacksonville during POWRi Midget Week earlier this season while Southern Illinois Raceway and Wayne County Speedway will both be first-time venues.

After a Friday night rainout last weekend, McIntosh made the most of his first Midget outing in several weeks the following night by racing to a second-place finish in heat race action and then climbing from 13th to finish ninth in the feature event with more than 40 cars on hand at Belleville’s Belle-Claire Speedway.

“It has been a few weeks, it felt really good getting back in the Midget,” McIntosh said of the strong outing.  “The car felt really good and was running well, we’re looking forward to all three races this weekend.”

Last weekend’s top-ten came on the heels of McIntosh’s first taste of Short Track Nationals Sprint Car action at Little Rock’s I-30 Speedway on October 5-6.

Rallying from deep in the field to finish eighth a month earlier at I-30 Speedway, McIntosh made his presence known once again amongst a field of more than 70 entries.  Contending for a coveted spot in the STN championship finale, his weekend came to an abrupt end while dicing for a transfer position in Saturday night “B” Main action.

“It was another one of those learning experiences,” McIntosh said of the Short Track Nationals weekend.

With a POWRi West win to his credit already this season, McIntosh looks for Nationals honors this weekend in Illinois among the POWRi and USAC ranks.

Along with RL Hudson and Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the ambitious 2018 slate of events possible includes American Discount, Complete Auto Care, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Sanders and Associates, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication and Car and Fleet.

2018 Quick Stats:  30 races, 1 win, 5 top-fives, 12 top-tens.

Up Next:

Friday – POWRi National Midgets at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway.

Saturday – POWRi National Midgets at Southern Illinois Raceway.

Sunday – USAC National Midgets “Jason Leffler Memorial” at Wayne County Speedway.
