FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Blake Hahn Opening Season This Weekend In Mississippi With USCS
Bryan Hulbert - SAPULPA, Okla. (February 28, 2018) With final touches going on the Griffith Truck and Equipment/Pizza Express No. 52, Blake Hahn is set to hit the road for the first time in 2018 with two new tracks on the horizon on Friday, March 2 at Hattiesburg Speedway (Hattiesburg, Miss.) and March 3 at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Magnolia, Miss.) with USCS.
"I'm just excited to get back on the road," stated Hahn who spent the off-season tweaking the overall setup of both car and team.
On that subject, Blake added, "We always go out for the win, but with the adjustments we have made through the off-season, we'd rather take a weekend and make sure we are moving in the right direction before we start our run with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series at Devil's Bowl Speedway on March 16 and 17."
While the weekend is about testing more than anything, new tracks tend to be in Hahn's favor. A trend he hopes stays true.
"It's funny, most of my wins with ASCS have been at new tracks for some reason. Even last year, we picked up wins at Crossville Speedway and Diamond Park Speedway in our first visits so we're hoping that continues this weekend. That would be a major confidence boost going into the start of our season," stated Hahn.
The 2018 season is Blake Hahn's 16th 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.

Wednesday's With Wayne: Southern Raceway Podiums
Bryan Hulbert - MILTON, Fla. (February 28, 2018) Wrapping up the month of February in Florida, Wayne Johnson and the TwoC Racing/Outlaw Wings entry was in action with USCS at Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla. on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24 with the team picking up back-to-back third-place finishes at the three-eighths-mile oval.
Advancing through Friday's Heat Race to start fifth, Johnson raced to third in the late stages of the A-Feature with Matt Covington and race leader, Terry Gray, in sight.
"We were rolling pretty good and I feel like I should have won Friday, but the way the track was, it was just hard to pass," commented Wayne. "I actually got past [Matt] Covington on the outside through one and two for second at one point and just didn't get whoaed up enough in three and four and slid up. I felt like if I hadn't missed that, I could have run Terry [Gray] down."
Hitting the ground running on Saturday night, Wayne tore through his Heat Race to win from the seventh starting spot. Into the A-Feature starting fourth, the track didn't change as much as Wayne had anticipated, but
"They worked on the track and gave us a nice racing surface and it actually ended up staying longer than I thought it was going to be so we ended up getting the car too tight in the feature," stated Wayne. "At the start, it wasn't too bad, but there at the end, I was just hanging on. Once the fuel load came off, the car started getting over on the right front but all in all, it was good. We're learning a lot, and that's way we came down here so we're ready to go this season."
Looking ahead, the plans for the weekend find Wayne pointed west to Hattiesburg Speedway (Hattiesburg, Miss.) on Friday, March 2 and Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Miss.) on Saturday, March 3 with USCS.
