Austin Hubbard Races to Runner-Up Performance at Port Royal
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Tripleheader Ahead


Seaford, Delaware (04/03/19) – Austin Hubbard paced the field for the first 19 circuits on Saturday evening at Port Royal Speedway. Despite his best efforts to get his first win of the season in his Mid-Coastal Siding #11 Trinity Logistics/ AMH Bulk Transport/ Rocket XR1 Chassis/ Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model, his bid came up just short. He crossed the line in the second position in the $3,000-to-win event.

“Well, that was pretty disappointing to not get the win after leading all those laps, but Jeff Rine did a great job,” Hubbard commented. “On the bright side, if we keep showing as much speed as we have early in the year, this is going to be a really good season for us.”

Saturday night found Austin Hubbard in action at Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania), where he was competing in a field of 31 Super Late Models. After recording a runner-up finish in his heat race behind Gene Knaub, Hubbard earned the pole position for the 30-lap, $3,000-to-win feature.

The Delaware racer led the first 19 laps before Jeff Rine stole the lead with a slider entering turn one on the 20th circuit. Hubbard would pursue Rine to the checkers, but fell short in his campaign to regain the lead. He finished second behind Rine with Dylan Yoder, Mason Zeigler, and Michael Norris rounding out the Top 5.

This weekend we’re going to have to be on top of our game, going head-to-head with both the Ultimate and Lucas Oil guys.

White Earns First Career ASCS Victory During Thriller at I-30 Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (April 3, 2019) - Harli White had dreamed of soaking in the emotion of her first career ASCS sprint car win for several years.

That elusive first triumph slipped through her fingers on numerous occasions before White refused to let go last Friday evening at I-30 Speedway, which hosted an event sanctioned by the ASCS Mid-South, ASCS Sooner and ASCS Lone Star Regions.

"It's been a really long time coming," she said. "I should have won two years ago and last year as well. I always came up short and it's been frustrating to say the least. I think once you get the first win under your belt the rest will come easier. I know I held my breath the last few laps of the race Saturday because I wanted to win so badly. It's so exciting. Everybody was pumped. It gives me a huge confidence boost going into the next race."

White swept the night, first winning a heat race from the pole before maneuvering from fourth to the claim the main event.

"Usually you don't want to start on the pole of the heat because of passing points, but the way the track was you needed to start in the front," she said. "That was a good draw. We had to win the heat to be in a good position for the A Main. There wasn't a lot of passing going on so we were able to get in the redraw and we had a good redraw by getting the No. 4."

White said she ran third for the first few laps before advancing into second place for a handful of circuits.

"I took the lead around Lap 9," she said. "I felt good at the beginning of the race, but the longer the race went the worse it got. I think we know what to do to make it better so I'm excited to see what happens when we get the car the way we want it."

The finish of the race was wild as Sam Hafertepe Jr. passed White for the lead on the final lap.

"Sam slid me going into turn one," she said. "I turned down and came up front of him (on the exit of turn two). I led down the backstretch and I went straight to the bottom going into turn three. I slid up the track in turn four to protect. It was real close."

White will take that momentum into the 9th annual Park City Cup/Air Capital Shootout this Friday and Saturday at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan., with the NCRA Series.

She will have a variety of new t-shirts for sale at her race trailer.

Hagar Earns Pair of Podium Finishes in Rare Non-Wing Sprint Car Starts

Inside Line Promotions - MILTON, Fla. (April 2, 2019) - Derek Hagar garnered his first two podium finishes of the season last weekend during a Southeastern Sprint Car Series doubleheader at Southern Raceway.

Hagar placed third on Friday and second on Saturday as he made his first non-wing sprint car starts since September 2016. The event also marked the first time he raced his own car in non-wing competition since September 2013.

"I think it turned out to be a good weekend," he said. "It was a smart move on the business side of it. At least we got to do some racing, enjoy some sunshine and have a good weekend."

The event kicked off on Friday with Hagar winning a heat race after starting on the outside of the front row.

"We had a good heat and got the lead off the start," he said. "That put us third in points so we started third in the main event. We got up to second and had a good car. We made a couple of charges on restarts. They do dixie restarts where the leader starts out front and then it's two by two behind them. We had a long red and after that my car wasn't the same and we backed up to third."

Saturday started on another strong note as Hagar maneuvered from seventh to second place in a heat race. That gave him the most points and garnered the pole position for the A Main.

"Saturday we got outran by a guy who runs non-wing for a living," he said. "He came down from Indiana and is a USAC regular non-wing guy. I knew in the feature as soon as he stood on the gas and the left front came off the ground we didn't have anything for him. With him having a 410 engine versus our 360 and being competitive with him it was a good showing. All we did was take the wings off. We had the winged sprint car setup on it from the get-go. That's something to write down in the notebook. If the opportunity comes to race again we'll be better prepared.

"We were still competitive with him. I wasn't able to make a good charge on him. We had a restart with 10 laps to go. I tried to charge the corner hard, but he kept his head on his shoulders and drove by me."

Hagar finished second to wrap up the weekend with his second straight podium.

QUICK RESULTS -

March 29 - Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla. - Heat race: 1 (2); Feature: 3 (3).

March 30 - Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla. - Heat race: 2 (7); Feature: 2 (1).

Wilson Maneuvers to Runner-Up Result During USCS Series Event in Tennessee

Inside Line Promotions - LEXINGTON, Tenn. (April 2, 2019) - Greg Wilson posted his second straight podium finish last Friday at Lexington 104 Speedway, where he garnered a runner-up result.

Wilson and his Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Off Road sponsored team was strong throughout the USCS Series event. He won the dash from the pole position, but had to start much further back in both the heat race and main event.

"It's all pill draw," he said. "We started last in the heat and passed three cars. At the end of the heat we were trying to get by another car. I was probably too tentative, but I didn't want to get tore up either."

Wilson maneuvered from seventh to fourth place in a heat race. That ranked him seventh in overall points following the heat races. The feature inversion was six, meaning Wilson narrowly missed starting on the front row for the main event.

"In the feature it took us awhile to get going because we had tightened up," he said. "Once we burned some fuel off we got going. Carson (Short) and his team did a really good job. My hats off to them. If the race went green in traffic maybe we were a little better than Carson. We could go where they couldn't go and when he couldn't pick his lane we were better, but that's racing. Out in clean air with a restart with a few laps to go he was good."

Wilson charged from seventh to second in the feature.

"We're not where we need to be with the car, but it's good for our confidence to run well," he said. "We're doing the right things. We just need to go a little further or step back and find another tweak to make."

Saturday's USCS Series event at Old No. 1 Speedway in Harrisburg, Ark., rained out.

The plan for this weekend is still up in the air with potential inclement weather. Wilson does plan on competing on Sunday at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio.

QUICK RESULTS -

March 29 - Lexington 104 Speedway in Lexington, Tenn. - Dash: 1 (1); Heat race: 4 (7); Feature: 2 (7).

SEASON STATS -

8 races, 1 win, 2 top fives, 2 top 10s, 3 top 15s, 3 top 20s
