Mike Marlar Wins USA Nationals Opener at Cedar Lake
Ready for North-South 100 at Florence Speedway

WINFIELD, Tenn. (08/08/22) – Mike Marlar notched a $6,000 victory on Thursday night with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Case Late Model Series during the opening round of the USA Nationals at Cedar Lake Speedway.

The win was his eighth of the season aboard his Delk Equipment Sales / Tri-Rivers Enterprises No. 157 Can-Am Auto Salvage / Longhorn Chassis / Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

“We capitalized on opportunity on Thursday night and got the win. Then, we buried ourselves a bit for Saturday’s show but still was able to pass a bunch of cars for a good finish,” Marlar said. “We weren’t bad at Gondik (Law Speedway) on Monday and Tuesday but just was missing a little something.

“We’re excited to head to Florence (Speedway) this week, and hopefully when it’s all said and done, we’ll have our first North-South 100 title.”

On Thursday, Mike Marlar squared off against the World of Outlaws CASE Late Model Series contingent at Cedar Lake Speedway (New Richmond, Wis.) as the 35th annual USA Nationals weekend kicked off with a $6,000-to-win prelim.

With a heat race victory placing him on the front row for the feature, Marlar took possession of the lead on the 11th circuit and led the remainder of the 30-lapper to capture his eighth win of the season and 11th career with the World of Outlaws.

He finished 2.284 seconds ahead of Brent Larson with Tanner English, Brandon Sheppard, and Dennis Erb Jr. completing the Top-5 finishers.

For a pair of heat races on Friday afternoon, Mike followed up a fifth-place finish in the first round with a fifth-to-fourth run in his second heat. With passing points setting the grid for Saturday’s main event, Marlar transferred into a B-Main for another shot at the $50,000-to-win USA 100.

Starting on the front row, Marlar scored a second-place finish behind Brandon Overton, locking him into the 20th-starting position for the A-Main.

Coming one spot shy of a Top-5 finish, Mike advanced through the field 14 spots in the 100-lapper to register an impressive sixth-place performance.

Back in action on Monday, Mike Marlar invaded Gondik Law Speedway (Superior, Wis.) to enter his Delk Equipment Sales No. 157 into battle with the XR Super Series.

With 40 Late Models converged in the pit area, Marlar followed up a sixth-place finish in his heat race with a 12-lap consolation victory. Pinned on the ninth row for the $20,000-to-win A-Main, Mike gained five positions to finish 13th.

For the second round of the XR Superior Showcase on Tuesday, Mike laid down the seventh-fastest time in his group before placing fourth in his heat. With $20,000 on the line in the feature, Marlar passed five cars in the 40-lap affair to register a ninth-place finish.

Shane Clanton Claims $20,000 Triumph in XR Super Series Action
Gondik Law Speedway Victory Marks Fourth of 2022 for Clanton

ZEBULON, Ga. (08/10/22) – Shane Clanton pushed his 2022-win total to four with a $20,000 triumph on Monday night at Wisconsin’s Gondik Law Speedway aboard his Skyline Motorsports No. 25 Bennett Explosives/ Super K Express/ Capital Race Cars / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

Shane swept the night’s program in XR Super Series action.

"We didn’t have the weekend we wanted at Cedar Lake (Speedway), so this was a big shot in the arm for our team to get the win,” Clanton said in Victory Lane. “We definitely made the right adjustments for the feature there. Lapped cars were a little hectic there, trying to get by ‘em. The air disturbs so much and you lose your nose

“Greg Bruening of Skyline Motorsports and Tyler Bruening, they give me everything I need to do to win this and we finally put in Victory Lane for ‘em.”

Clanton added a runner-up finish at the Wisconsin oval on Tuesday night, but felt like his qualifying effort cost him a chance at the win.

“We messed up qualifying a little bit and it put us in a hole,” Clanton said. “We rebounded in the heat race (to finish second behind Overton) and got us a good starting spot (fifth) and drove to second. I wish we could’ve started on the pole. I think we could’ve won the race.”

Shane Clanton entered his Skyline Motorsports No. 25 Late Model into battle with the XR Super Series on Monday evening at Gondik Law Speedway (Superior, Wis.) for the XR Superior Showcase opener.

In a field of 40 cars, Clanton set the pace in time trials with a blistering 15.423-second lap before picking up a heat race win. Leading flag-to-flag in the 40-lap feature, Shane raced to his fourth win of the season second career XR Super Series triumph. He collected a $20,000 payday ahead of Brandon Overton, Chris Madden, Ricky Weiss, and Joseph Joiner.

Action continued on Tuesday night with another $20,000-to-win program, where Shane raced from fifth-to-second in his heat race to earn the fifth-starting spot for the 40-lap finale. Shane went on advance to a runner-up finish behind Chris Madden with Brandon Overton, Jonathan Davenport, and Kyle Strickler rounding out the Top 5.

Prior to the Monday and Tuesday XR Super Series events, Clanton raced at Cedar Lake Speedway (New Richmond, Wisc.) with the World of Outlaws (WoO) CASE Late Model Series during the 2022 edition of the USA Nationals.

Clanton finished 14th in the weekend opener on Thursday before retiring early from Saturday’s $50,000-to-win finale and was credited with a 23rd-place finish.

Full results from last week’s events are available at www.WoOLMS.com and www.XRSuperSeries.com.
The team will be idle this weekend before returning to action on August 19-21 with a WoO tripleheader in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Action opens on Thursday, August 19 at Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) before shifting to Sharon Speedway (Hartford, Ohio) on Friday, August 20. The weekend draws to a close on August 21 at Tri-City Raceway Park (Franklin, Pa.).
