Bryan Bernheisel Sails to Selinsgrove Speedway Checkers
Frank Sagi Tribute at Hagerstown Up Next

Jonestown, Pennsylvania (05/02/18) – For the second time in 2018 Bryan Bernheisel raced his Dieffenbach’s Kettle Chips #119 Russ Gibble Roofing & Siding/ Lazer Chassis Super Late Model to Victory Lane.

His latest triumph came on Saturday night at Pennsylvania’s Selinsgrove Speedway, while his dad, Jim Bernheisel finished third.

“It was a lot of fun running one-two with dad there in the feature,” Bryan commented. “It’s kind of been an all or nothing year for us so far this year. It seems like we are really good or just not where we need to be with no middle ground. However, we’re making solid gains on the car, and our confidence is starting to really build. I definitely would like to thank all of our sponsors, who make it possible for us do this every weekend.”

On Saturday evening Bryan and Jim Bernheisel visited Selinsgrove Speedway (Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania) for a Weekly Racing Series Event.

In a field of 18 Super Late Models, both Bryan and Jim locked their spot into the main event with heat race victories. Receiving the front-row starting spots after the invert, Jim ran second behind Bryan for the majority of the race until slipping late to finish third.

Meanwhile, Bryan jumped into the lead early and led all 25-laps en route to his second win of the season. Gene Knaub, Jim, Hayes Matten, and Brett Schadel completed the Top-5 finishers.

Cla Knight Progresses in Super Late Model Competition
Finishes Fourth in Jack Starrette Memorial

North Augusta, South Carolina (05/02/18) – South Carolina racer Cla Knight has enjoyed considerable success in the Crate Late Model ranks throughout his young career.

In 2018 he’s added another level of difficulty to his racing resume by progressing into the Super Late Model ranks in his Augusta Aquatics #42 E-Z-GO Golf Carts/ Penske Shocks/ Maxxis Kart Racing/ Town & Country Packing Longhorn Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine entry.

Over the weekend he creeped closer to getting his first win in the division with a fourth-place finish in the Jack Starrette Memorial at Modoc Raceway.

“There’s definitely some significant differences between driving the Crate Late Model and the Super Late Model, but we are learning and getting better every time that we hit the track,” Knight commented. “After qualifying on the pole at Modoc Raceway, I would’ve loved to have gotten my first Super Late Model win, but I’ll take a fourth and move onto the next one.”

Competing with the ULTIMATE Southeast Series, Cla Knight was one of 24 Super Late Models on hand at Modoc Raceway (Modoc, South Carolina) on Saturday evening for the event co-sanctioned with the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series.

Laying down the fastest time overall in qualifying, Knight locked into the pole position for the Jack Starrette Memorial A-Main. Running in the Top 5 throughout the feature, Cla ultimately registered a fourth-place finish behind Tyler Millwood, Ross Bailes, and John Henderson Jr. with Joey Coulter coming in 5th.

Complete results from this event can be found at .

Cla has a potential tripleheader on the docket for the upcoming weekend. Action opens on Thursday and Friday with a pair of $10,000-to-win World of Outlaws Craftsman Super Late Model events at Lavonia Speedway (Lavonia, Georgia) and Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, South Carolina).

Logan Roberson Claims Fifth Win of 2018
Natural Bridge Speedway on Tap this Saturday

Waynesboro, Virginia (05/02/18) – Logan Roberson claimed his fifth win of the season over the weekend in his Wynbridge Inc. #17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model.

The victory came on Friday night at Maryland’s Potomac Speedway.

“We had a great night at Potomac Speedway on Friday, and we were really fast at Winchester Speedway on Saturday, but we got handicapped with the eighth-starting spot for the feature because we had won there a few weeks earlier. That put us behind the eight ball, and then when the race went caution free, we just ran out of time,” Roberson said. “We just took that one on the chin, and now we’ll move onto the next race.”

On Friday evening Logan Roberson returned to Potomac Speedway (Budds Creek, Maryland), competing in a field of 11 Crate Late Models. Finishing third in his heat race, Roberson earned the second-starting position for the A-Main.

Jumping into the lead at the drop of the green flag, Logan held off Chuck Bowie in the final 10 circuits to register his third-straight win and fifth overall on the season. Bowie, Jamie Sutphin, Matt Tarbox, and Darren Alvey completed the Top-5 finishers in the 20-lap affair.

On Saturday night at Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Virginia), Roberson won his heat race but was forced to start eighth in the feature after winning the feature at the facility a few weeks earlier.

He went on to reel in a fourth-place finish in the feature trailing Devin Brannon, Tanner Kerr, and Mike Franklin across the finish line with Scott Sweeney coming in 5th.

For full results from these events, please visit and .

This Saturday Logan will make the trip to Natural Bridge Speedway (Natural Bridge, Virginia), where he’ll be competing in a Weekly Racing Series Event.

Roberts and Kerr in WoO Double Header at Smoky Mountain

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (May 2) Casey Roberts and Tommy Kerr were both in action for Blount Motorsports in the WoO Tip Off Classic Weekend. Roberts would score a fourth place finish after starting ninth and Kerr finished 19th after starting 18th on Friday night.

In all fairness it is not fair to lump Roberts and Kerr together with Roberts running full time and Kerr who runs a limited schedule and was running his first race of the season, but for the sake of brevity that is what we are going to do.

On Saturday night for the second consecutive $10,000 to win event Roberts and Kerr’s qualifying efforts were not all that wonderful. Kerr started 12th in the feature and Roberts 17th.  When the checkered flag flew Roberts came across the line in 11th and Kerr 13th.

“Casey qualified well and came home with a strong fourth place finish. It was a good outing for him. Tommy was trying to shake off some winter rust and his qualifying run and feature racing reflected that,” said David Bryant. “Saturday night’s qualifying efforts saw Tommy get better and Casey get worse. Then the track blacked over and locked down about five laps into the race and that is not a good thing when you are starting mid-pack or worse. With that said Casey moved up six places on Saturday night, one more than Friday night.”

“Qualifying is so important and on Friday night we qualified better than we did on Saturday night. And Friday we came home fourth and that wasn’t all that bad,” said Roberts. “Saturday night we started eight places behind our Friday night start and with the track rubbered up early we really weren’t going anywhere.”

“I wasn’t happy with what I did in the two races, but I wasn’t that unhappy either. I’ll bet I was the only one in the field that this was their first race of the year,” said Kerr. “I made and finished both races and came home with a car that didn’t have a scratch on it. That isn’t all that bad if you think about it.”

This Friday night the team will head for the Lucas Oil event at Tazewell. It is still up in the air whether or not the team will make the trip to Florence for the Lucas show on Saturday night.

Ball Hits Highs and Lows Throughout Three-Race Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 2, 2018) - Jamie Ball had a weekend of highs and lows as he competed with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by on Friday at Paducah International Raceway before returning home to Knoxville Raceway to pull double duty for the second straight week.

"The banking and the layout at Paducah has the potential to be one of the best tracks and races on the ASCS schedule," he said.

Ball hit a speed bump early Friday night in Paducah, Ky., with a bad draw for his heat race. The White Lightning Motorsports driver started from the inside of the fourth row, but was unable to finish the eight-lap heat race because of a loose fuel line. Ball was credited with a seventh-place finish.

"We didn't have too good of a draw for the heat race or a good heat race at all," he said. "We got rolling for the B Main and was able to transfer out for the fourth consecutive A Main."

Ball finished fifth in the B Main, which earned a transfer into the feature event. He maneuvered from 21st to a 14th-place result in the main event.

"The feature went decent and we made our way forward to the 14th spot," he said. "I feel like we had the speed to compete up front, we just need to do better at positioning ourselves toward the front starting spot of the features. But it was a decent rebound and we were able to lock ourselves into a tie for the seventh place points position with Roger Crockett and get in the tow money as we head to Williams Grove and Selinsgrove this weekend."

Ball competed in both the 360ci and 410ci sprint car classes last Saturday at Knoxville Raceway.

He qualified ninth quickest in the 360 class before charging from fourth to win a heat race, which lined him up on the inside of the second row for the A Main.

"We had high hopes for the feature with us starting third," Ball said. "I tried a slide job on (Clint) Garner to attempt to take the lead on the start, but just couldn't complete it and he got around us. It's fun racing with him. We respect each other. I settled back into third and hoped to make something happen, but it never did. Garner lost a motor with three laps to go, which put us in second and then I lost a motor on the white flag. It was a major blow up and it was a disappointing way to end another strong run."

Ball, who was credited with a 16th-place result in the 360 class, timed in sixth quickest in the 410 class. He then advanced from fifth to third place in a heat race before closing the night with a sixth-place result in the main event.

"With one night of double duty under my belt I felt confident going in and had higher expectations as we looked to rebound from our DNF the previous weekend while running inside the top five," he said. "One of the things I have struggled with in a 410 is the starts. I had a terrible start at the beginning of the feature, but settled in fourth or fifth. We have a few setup changes that I think we can make to help the car roll the cushion better, but we ended up sixth. My team and I are extremely happy with that result for our second time in a 410 at Knoxville."

Ball's next race will be with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour this Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Saturday at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Pa., during the Battle of the Groves.

"We will be picking up with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour as we all head east to the famed Williams Grove and Selinsgrove," Ball said. "I'm really excited to get to race at these famed tracks and I'm also looking forward to meeting all those special PA Posse fans. I've already had some great and welcoming interactions with some of them on Twitter. I think we should learn a lot and it should be a very fun weekend."
