Ross Bailes Enjoys Successful Debut with Big Frog Motorsports
Team Claims Pair of Runner-Up Finishes

OCALA, Fla. (02/11/20) – Ross Bailes made his debut as the pilot of the M&W Transport No. 58 Dave’s Towing/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model with a strong performance.

The South Carolina native claimed a pair of runner-up finishes in the Winter Freeze X at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga. over the weekend.

“Thanks to Ross for driving the wheels off this car this weekend and bringing home two second-place finishes,” team owner Augie Burttram said. “I’m looking forward to big things with Ross and our team this year.”

Drawing 26 entries for the two-day event, Bailes followed up the fastest lap overall in time trials on Friday with a heat race victory. Starting on the pole for the $10,010-to-win A-Main, Ross went on to place second behind Brandon Overton. Chris Ferguson, Gregg Satterlee, and Jason Covert rounded out the Top-5.

“We were hitting on all cylinders in qualifying. And we were good in the feature,” said Bailes. “The track changed, and I feel like in the heat race the track was a little bit slicker and we were better in that condition. That guy there [Overton], he’s about the best at this track and then the guy behind me [Ferguson] is about the best or second-best so it feels good to be in between ‘em.”

The following night for the $20,010 top prize, Ross came in third fastest in his qualifying group before placing second in his heat race behind Overton. Earning the fifth-starting position for the feature, Bailes wrestled the lead away from Overton on lap 49, but before he could reach the flag stand, the caution appeared. The pass was negated and Overton reassumed command.

Bailes was never able to regain control after the untimely yellow and went on to finish second behind Overton at the checkered flag. Michael Page, Jason Covert, and Dale McDowell completed the Top-5 finishers.

“Once I got it going, I got by him and that caution came out and I knew they weren’t gonna let it go,” Bailes commented. “But you know he’s lost a race to me like that before, so it’s just part of it. At least we’re up front battling with them. We had a really good car this weekend.”

Brandon Overton Sweeps Winter Freeze X at Screven
DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park Next

HAZARD, Ky. (02/11/20) – Brandon Overton often refers to Screven Motor Speedway (Slyvania, Ga.) as his favorite track. Over the weekend, he showed everyone why.

The Wells and Sons Motorsports pilot drove the Crossfit Overton No. 76 Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Cornett Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model to a weekend sweep and a $30,020 payday in the Winter Freeze X.

Overton departed East Bay Raceway Park (Tampa, Fla.) - following a string of podium finish during the week – and headed north to Screven Motor Speedway for the two-day Winter Freeze X.

Drawing 26 entries, Brandon started the night off with a heat race victory, which positioned him second on the starting grid for the A-Main. Leading wire-to-wire, Overton fought off early challenges from fellow front-row starter Ross Bailes to build more than a three-second margin at the finish. Bailes, Chris Ferguson, Gregg Satterlee, and Jason Covert completed the Top-5 finishers. Overton’s first win of the season netted him a $10,010 payday.

“I love coming home,” said Overton in Victory Lane. “I don’t know what it is. When I drive through the gate here I have like, no stress. There’re only 26 cars, but there ain’t a bad one in the pits. It’s just so competitive now. If you can get up front, it’s way easier to lead these things than it is to pass.”

The following night, Brandon laid down the second fastest lap in qualifying before capturing a heat race win. Starting on the pole of the feature, Overton survived a late-race challenge from Ross Bailes to capture his second win of the season and a $20,010 payday. Bailes, Michael Page, Jason Covert, and Dale McDowell trailed him to the checkeres in the 60-lap affair.

“I knew he was coming, but [Bailes] never gave me a sign that he was gonna move out,” Overton said of Bailes’ charge to the lead. “If the caution hadn’t come out … my car was really, really, really good ... could I have got back by him? I don’t know. I had a lot more tire left that I thought I did, so I really wasn’t pressing the issue. He kinda caught me off guard. I appreciate him running me clean and I’ll remember that.”

Full results from these events are available at .

This week, the team has their sights set on the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla. The week begins with a pair of DIRTcar-sanctioned events on Monday-Tuesday, each paying $7,000-to-win. The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series will take center stage Wednesday-Saturday with four consecutive $10,000-to-win events.

Mason Zeigler Scores Lucas Oil Victory at East Bay
DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park Up Next

CHALK HILL, Pa. (02/11/20) – Mason Zeigler claimed his second-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory on Friday in his JLE Industries No. 25z Ohiopyle Vacation Rentals/ MS Shock Therapy/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

The Pennsylvania native topped a thrilling battle for the lead with Kyle Bronson at East Bay Raceway Park (Tampa, Fla.), finishing just 0.068 seconds ahead of Bronson at the finish line.

"I knew Kyle [Bronson] was going to be tough because that cushion was still pretty good up there. The cautions really helped me because their tires were getting a little cool and I could just work that middle [groove]," Zeigler said. "I knew if I could just get ahead of him, clear him, and take his nose getting into [turns] one and two, we could drive away. He gave me all I wanted. I didn't expect that slider. I didn't think he'd be able to pull up alongside me again, and he sure as heck did. We just had barely enough room there. I did everything I could not to door him, it's just hard-core racing. This place is elbows up and get after it. We're just happy to come out here and put on a show."

The fifth round of the 44th Annual Wrisco Industries Winternationals found 57 drivers entered. Mason started his night with a second-place finish in his heat race. As a result, he locked into the seventh-starting spot for the 50-lap finale. 

Late in the $12,000-to-win main event, Zeigler worked his way into the third position as he set his sights on frontrunners, Bronson and Brandon Sheppard. Zeigler inched past both drivers to lead lap 48 before Bronson regained control as the white flag flew.

The final circuit saw Zeigler and Bronson locked into a spirited battle for the top spot. As the duo exited turn four for the final time, it was Zeigler who forged ahead for a photo finish at the line.

Blake Hahn Readying For 2020 Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour

Bryan Hulbert - SAPULPA, Okla. (February 11, 2020) Getting all the pieces together for his seventh season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Blake Hahn will try to carry his 2019 momentum into the new decade and better his points position by one.

"We figured out so much last year with our program that I don't think I have ever felt more comfortable going into a new season," commented Hahn. "We came up short of our ultimate goal last year, but the fact that we were there and able to lead at times really showed how far this team has come."

Returning with the same JR1 Chassis with Rider power under the hood for the 2020 season, Hahn will look at a combined 72 race lineup with several ASCS Regional events mixed in, as well as Midget and select 410cid events.

"Obviously our main focus is the National Tour, but when we are not on the road we'll run some Regional events and keep building on what we are doing with the Midget program; plus we're going to start working in some 410cid shows with MOWA and the All-Stars so I'm really excited about that."

While the equipment combination will be the same, Hahn is pleased to announce OILFIRE Rye Whiskey has extended its partnership with the No. 52 from the Chili Bowl to the entire 2020 racing season.

"OILFIRE stepping up the way they have is huge for this team. They've been great to work with the past two years at the Chili Bowl, and we're looking forward to being able to represent them all over the country with the American Sprint Car Series. Without them,, Lucas Oil, CSR Garage, Sage Fruit, Co., and everyone that helps us we couldn't race."

With cars going together, the team will start the season at Canyon Speedway Park on February 28 and February 29 in Peoria, Ariz. with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network before heading to California for events at Merced Speedway (March 6), Placerville Speedway (March 7), and Petaluma Speedway (March 8), meaning the first five events on the season are all brand new stops for Hahn.

"For some reason, we tend to roll good at new tracks so I'm hoping that trend continues. Four tracks are ones I've always wanted to race, but I have to say the one I'm the most excited for is Placerville."

The 2020 season is Blake Hahn's 18th year of racing. Starting in Jr. Sprints at the Tulsa Shootout, Hahn has progressed through the ranks with over 90 victories across Micros, Midgets, and Sprint Cars. For continued updates on Blake Hahn Racing, log onto

2020 Season to Date:

Events: 6; Wins -0; Top 5 - 2; Top 10 - 3;

Coming Up:
