Finishing second in his heat race, Hightower locked into the fourth starting position for the feature. Taking control of the top spot by the second lap and quickly pulling away to a full straightaway advantage, Brandon soared to the win over Steve Turnage.

Matt Cosner Mourns Loss of His Father-In-Law
Team Forced to Scale Back Racing Operations

RIDGELEY, W.Va. (06/30/20) – Matt Cosner and his family are mourning the sudden passing of Matt’s father-in-law, Barry Mason.  This unexpected loss to their family is forcing some changes in the team’s racing schedule.

The West Virginia native is temporarily scaling back his driving efforts to devote more of his focus to his grieving family, and the day-to-day operations of their business.

The devastating loss has not only left a void in the families hearts, but also in the daily operations of the family-owned Nelson Auto Sales, the largest volume pre-owned auto dealer in the Tri-State.

“He was a huge part of my racing career and a huge part of running the business while I was away racing,” said Cosner. “With his passing, I’m left with no choice but to scale back racing for now. To ensure our business continues to be successful, I can’t be away from the dealership for long periods of time without his help.”

Cosner is hopeful he’ll have the opportunity to tackle a national tour again in the future. “The WoO tour was tough, but it was a lot of fun. I really think to RoY battle was going to be close between Winger and I, we had fun with that. He and I became friends and I wish him and the rest of the Outlaws the best the rest of the season.”

While Cosner is unsure of his schedule for the remainder of the season, he noted that he’ll stay close to home when he does have the opportunity to race. “I’m not sure what the rest of the season is going to look like, but when we do race, it won’t be far from home. I’m also looking forward to messing around with the Modified during our down time. I have really enjoyed helping a few friends recently with their Modifieds and going to watch them when we weren’t on the road. I plan to do more of that in the future.”

Nick Deal Unstoppable at Shelby County Speedway

WALNUT, Iowa (06/30/20) – Nick Deal continues to be seemingly unstoppable on his home turf.

For the fourth-straight week, Nick drove the Karl and Tracie Getzschman-owned No. 18 All Makes Collision/ Visible Signs/ Rocket Chassis to Victory Lane at Shelby County Speedway in Harlan, Iowa.

“When a car and driver are hooked, they are a force to be reckoned with,” said Team Owner Tracie Getzschman. “Our crew works their tails off to be able to provide a top-notch car for a driver who is talented, careful, respectful, and floats this car with such grace. I’m super proud of our No. 18 team!”

To start the night, Deal passed five cars in his heat race to pick up the win, locking him into the 10th-starting position for the A-Main.

Tracking down front-row starter Jacob Brown, Nick soared to the victory over Brown, A.J. Jorgensen, Brandon Saltzman, and Brett Hopp. After laying down consecutive 17 second laps early as he closed in on the leaders, Deal began coasting late in the race as he lapped all the way up to the third position.

“The car was flawless again tonight. My hat’s off to this crew for all they do,” said Deal. “Thanks to Karl and Tracie, this team, our sponsors, and all of the fans for their continued support.”

Mallett Runs Top-Five Streak to Eight as ASCS National Tour Season Resumes

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 30, 2020) - Following a week off from competition, Jordon Mallett picked up two top-five finishes with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour in the series' first action since early March due to the effects of COVID-19.

The results marked eight straight top-five finishes for the Greenbrier, Ark., native, continuing a positive trend of success since switching to a Triple X chassis for the 2020 season.

"We're really starting to get things where we want and we have a really nice balance," he said. "We'll keep plugging away at things and I'm happy with the direction we're headed."

Mallett kicked off the weekend last Thursday at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan., where he advanced forward six positions to finish second in a heat race. That locked him into the feature redraw and he pulled the No. 2 to line up on the outside of the front row for the A Main.

Mallett battled back from a tough start that dropped him to fourth to challenge for the top spot. He led Lap 9 by a nose at the line before slipping to second the following circuit. After a restart on Lap 15, Mallett had to get on the brakes to avoid wrecking and fell to the fourth position. With the rest of the race going non-stop, Mallett maintained the spot to finish fourth.

"I almost got turned around on that last restart and it made me enter the turn pretty hot and it really just messed us up," he said. "I really think we had a winning car so as much as I was pleased, I was disappointed as well. We definitely can't hang our heads though."

He then headed to a home state race at I-30 Speedway on Saturday. Mallett advanced two positions in a heat race to finish fifth. He then maneuvered from seventh to fourth in a qualifier to garner the 11th starting position in the main event.

Mallett steadily marched forward throughout the feature and he was able to sneak into the top five with a last-lap pass. The six positions gained were the second most among any driver in the field and guided him to his eighth top five of the season.

"I told the guys that it was going to be hard to pass cars on Saturday night and luckily we were able to make a few moves to get ourselves through the qualifier and into the feature," he said. "Track position is the name of the game in this sport and we just needed a better starting spot. I'm so proud of my team and the effort we put forth."

Mallett will take this week off to celebrate the Fourth of July with his family and friends before returning the following weekend with another home state race on July 11 at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis. He will enter the race ranked third in the ASCS National Tour championship standings, trailing first by only 72 points.

"I honestly don't know the last time I got to enjoy the July 4th holiday without some sort of racing, so we're going to soak this one up and try and relax," he said. "We've got a lot to be thankful about right now and this is the perfect time to embrace that. We'll look to come back next week with another good run and just try to keep the momentum rolling."


June 25 - Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan. - Heat race: 2 (8); Feature: 4 (2).

June 27 - I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. - Heat race: 5 (7); Qualifier: 4 (7); Feature: 5 (11).
