Blake Hahn Knocks Down Trio of Top 10's During Lucas Oil ASCS Run

Bryan Hulbert - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 16, 2018) Wrapping up a busy three-race swing across Kansas and Arkansas, Blake Hahn netted a trio of Top 10 finishes with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by

"We've finished well at all three tracks in the past so we had some good notes to work off of. I felt like we could have run better at Lakeside and I-30, but in the overall, we are in the hunt and the break after these races, it gives us time to go over everything and test at a few tracks we have coming up on the National Tour," commented Hahn.

Starting the run with his fifth podium finish of the season, Hahn finished second at Humboldt Speedway.

"We've run well at Humboldt every time we've rolled through the gate. We ended up starting on the front row with Wayne [Johnson] and got a run on him at one point, but the cautions didn't really let us get into traffic and once the track worked to the bottom, I didn't really have anything at that point."

Rolling to Lakeside Speedway, the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 moved from sixth to fourth in Heat Race competition, putting Blake 12th in the A-Feature where he was able to move forward to a sixth-place finish.

"The first few laps at Lakeside, I was searching around seeing where the car felt the best. Once I got the top rolling, I started moving forward and as the race went on the car was getting better. A few times I cheated the cushion and felt the middle starting to come in, so I just kept doing it until I really felt it bite and picked off several spots there at the end."

One of Blake's favorite tracks, I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. capped off the three-race swing with Blake starting the night off with a Heat Race win that put him ninth on the A-Feature lineup. When the dust settled, Blake rolled under the checkered flag eighth.

"Just made a couple mistakes that cost me. I got up to fourth, but just messed up with about 10 to go and fell back. I really felt like we had a car capable of finishing on the podium. Hopefully we can go back a few times before Short Track Nationals and work on the car a little bit more. That's a track I really enjoy racing at I-30."

For the coming weekend, Hahn will be in action with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Red River Region presented by Smiley's Racing Products at Creek County Speedway on Friday, May 18 and Lawton Speedway on Saturday, May 19.

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. For continued updates on Blake Hahn Racing, along with his full 2018 lineup, log onto

Skylar Gee Continues Learning Through Three Race Lucas Oil ASCS Run

Bryan Hulbert - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 16, 2018) Taking in three nights of racing with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by this past week, Skylar Gee continues to learn and progress with BDS Motorsports.

"I definitely think we're better. Our draw is still no good, but I learned a bunch this weekend honestly," commented Gee of the overall three-race swing.

Taking the green from 15th at Humboldt Speedway, Gee moved forward to finish 13th at the Kansas quarter-mile.

"Humboldt was different. I watched a lot of video before I got there and noticed guys were really having to slow up down on entry, I just didn't realize you had to slow up that much. Early on, I thought the track was going to have more grip and I ended up hitting the wall in Hot Laps, then I did it again in the Heat Race, and that cost me. I really felt like I could have run at least second in the Heat, but with guys like Sam and Seth, you can't make mistakes like that and not expect them to pounce on it. In the feature, once it went to the bottom there wasn't much I could do."

Having to race out of the B-Feature on Thursday at Lakeside Speedway, Skylar again was able to move forward with a run from 18th to 13th.

"Ending up in that B-Main, I honestly didn't think the top was worth a look. I rolled up there on the parade lap and decided the bottom was the way to go. We got to third and suddenly someone passed me on the top, so I jumped up there and took a few runs at it, got to second, and almost got the lead coming to the checkered so that was a lesson. In the feature, I searched around a lot and moved forward."

Wrapping up at I-30 Speedway, Skylar was able to race through his Heat Race to grid the A-Feature 12th, but a misstep on the high side sent the No. 99 to the tail as the cause of the caution.

"I started following Tim Crawley around the top. Of anyone in front of me, I figured he knew best how to get around that place and we started really rolling good on the top when everyone else was on the bottom until I hooked a hole going into one. After that, we had nine to go and just couldn't get rolling again."

For this weekend, the weather will dictate where the Strongs Crane Service/BDS Motorsports No. 99 will land as the National Tour is off.

Wisconsin Weekend for Reutzel after another WoO Podium

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (May 16, 2018) –  Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team will venture to another pair of tracks for the first time this weekend as All Star Circuit of Champions competition fires back into action.

It will be a Wisconsin weekend for the Clute, TX, racer as he takes the All Star points lead into Saturday’s card at the Plymouth Dirt Track at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds before moving on to Sun Prairie’s Angell Park Speedway on Sunday night.

After capturing his first All Star win in the series most recent outing at Hartford, Ohio’s Sharon Speedway on May 5, Reutzel took in last weekend’s three-race set of World of Outlaws competition in Ohio and Indiana.

And, the Folkens Brothers Tucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car team made its presence known, leading a portion of Friday’s #LetRaceTwo event at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, before posting a podium finish on Saturday night and then rounding out the weekend at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway on Sunday.

The #LetsRaceTwo weekend started with Reutzel timing in eighth among Friday’s 37-car field and then landing a spot in the Dash with a runner-up heat race finish.

“We drew late and were still able to lay down a good lap,” the driver of the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry says.  “Then we were really good in the Dash and picked up a couple of positions after drawing the eight.”

Starting sixth in the feature, Reutzel was on the move as he looked for his second World of Outlaws win of the season aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine.  Reutzel rallied past both Donny Schatz and early leader Jac Haudenschild to take command on the 12th round only to get into the turn one wall the next time around to bring an early end to the strong run.

“We got right up there in the feature, I kinda bounced off the wall once and it gave us a really good run,” Reutzel recalls.  “Then I got the lead and got a little too confident one time, it sucked me in and there was no saving it.”

While Reutzel raced into the lead quickly, he knew there was little time to cruise atop the Eldora high-banked oval.  “I felt like Donny was just cruising, I was trying to run off from him while I could and it didn’t work out,” Reutzel explains.

With a new car in place for Saturday’s #LetsRaceTwo finale at Eldora, Reutzel timed in fourth and then won his heat race before finishing fourth in the Dash.

Reutzel then raced to a solid third-place finish in the feature to finish off the Eldora portion of the weekend.

“Comparing the car we had Friday night to what we had on Saturday night, we just weren’t as good,” Reutzel explains.  “We were just a third-place car.  With the track smooth and dead slick, we were too loose.”

Reutzel and the BRM team wrapped up the weekend on Sunday night at Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway with a 24th-place feature finish.

Reutzel started the night strong by qualifying third among his group but a heat race infraction proved costly.

“They said I jumped the start and put us back a row, that pretty much ruined our night,” Reutzel said.

He went on to win the “B” Main before making an early exit in the feature.

“We were good in the B, but the motor got a little hot and we didn’t have much time to fix it,” Reutzel recalls.  “It was still doing the same thing in the feature so we just pulled in.”

Points are back on the line in All Star action this weekend as Reutzel gets his first look at a pair of Wisconsin tracks.

2018 Quick Stats:  18 races, 2 wins, 7 top-fives, 9 top-tens.

Up Next:  All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars at the Plymouth (WI) Dirt Track-Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday and then Angell Park Speedway (Sun Prairie, WI) on Sunday.

Bacon Set for USAC Sprint Car Double after Big E Triumph

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (May 16, 2018) – Brady Bacon was the lone driver that pulled double duty during last weekend’s #LetsRaceTwo event at Rossburg, Ohio’s Eldora Speedway featuring the USAC Amsoil National Sprint Cars and the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Cars.

So it was only fitting that Bacon pulled off a win during the double that was part of a fast-paced five-race weekend for the Broken Arrow, OK, native.

With his second triumph of the season in the books, action continues this weekend with a pair of USAC National Sprint Car events at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, IL, on Friday and then Pevely, Missouri’s Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway on Saturday night.

Last weekend’s action kicked off with the opening leg of #LetsRaceTwo at Eldora with Bacon winning his USAC Sprint Car heat race after timing in ninth.  Gridding the feature field eighth, Bacon worked the top side to advance through the field and then made the low side of turn four work to his advantage as he powered into the lead by the 19th round before ultimately racing to the stipe with more than a five-second advantage.

“It was getting trickier to hit the bottom, but I just kept it in my back pocket,” Bacon explained.  “I knew it was so treacherous up top and easy to lose your momentum.  There really wasn’t much grip to gain your speed back.”

Bacon finished out the USAC portion of the weekend with another strong run on Saturday night, climbing from the tenth starting position to post a fourth-place finish for his 11th overall top-five showing of the year.

“Eldora is always good for us in the non-wing car,” Bacon said of the weekend.  “We just need to get a little better in qualifying to put us in a better position to be up front each night.”

Bacon made his presence known in the World of Outlaws portion of #LetsRaceTwo as well, advancing a handful of positions in Friday night’s feature to finish 16th and then racing from 23rd to 13th in Saturday night’s feature.

“Finishes of 16th and 13th are nothing to hang our heads about with that competition,” Bacon explained.  “There were at least 30 cars there probably capable of winning under the right circumstances, so to be that competitive on both nights is a positive for our team.”

Bacon rounded out the weekend with a Mother’s Day World of Outlaws tilt at Haubstadt, Indiana’s Tri-State Speedway on Sunday.

After timing in eighth among his group, Bacon secured the 16th starting position in the feature with a fourth-place heat race finish.  He then rallied through the field, climbing all the way to sixth and in contention for a podium finish when he was collected in a turn two incident on a lap 30 restart.

“It’s a love/hate relationship with Tri-State Speedway,” said of the Haubstadt oval that has teased a possible World of Outlaws win for Bacon on several occasions.  “We had a top five car at worst, there just wasn’t anywhere to go when they got together.”

Bacon goes into this week’s pair of USAC Sprint Car events looking to climb the point charts.  He has enjoyed success at Tri-City Speedway in both the winged and non-wing Sprint Car ranks in the past and got a recent look at Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway in Midget action.

Langley Claims Top 5 Finish

Jasper, Alabama (5/15/2018) – Thomas Langley, driver of the #19 4 + Main NeSmith Dirt Track Late Model claimed another top 5 finish on Saturday-night May 12, 2018.

Langley qualified third fastest on Saturday night and set his sights on the front row when the green flag fell in the late model feature. Following three excellent starts that were negated by yellow flags, Langley’s fourth restart failed to produce the results he was looking for and left him fighting for third place. When the checkered flag waved Langley had dropped one more position to end the night in 4th.

“I just didn’t get the restart that I needed to after that last caution flag,” Langley stated following the event. “We were good, but we race against excellent competition, you have to hit everything exactly right when the cars are separated by only a few hundredths of a second.”

Langley will have a week off before returning to action on Memorial Day Weekend.   

Please see final results at:  (Under the 604 Division Page)


Thomas Langley would like to thank the team partnerships / sponsorships including: 4th + Main,  ….262 Fast Fab Speedshop, Southtown Mortgage, Hitman Racing Suspension and a special Thanks to Trak Star Race Cars. Partnerships created with Safety Wins, Inc. and Safety Racing.
