||Nick Hoffman Races to First-Career World of Outlaws Win
WoO Action Continues this Week in Illinois and Kentucky
Mooresville, North Carolina (05/30/23) – Nick Hoffman scratched another item off his bucket list last Tuesday night. The North Carolina racer piloted the Tye Twarog Racing / NOS Energy Drink No. 9 C&W Trucking / Longhorn Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model to his first-career World of Outlaws (WoO) Case Late Model Series victory.
The triumph, which marked his second overall of the year, came at North Carolina’s Stateline Speedway and was worth $10,000.
“The way we’ve been going, it felt like (my first win) has been so close. You gotta qualify good and I was able to just hit my stride at Stateline (Speedway),” Hoffman said. “This place was great, I’ve never been up here to New York, or raced up there and I had a lot of fun. We were in the Top 10 all three nights at Sharon (Speedway), but we were just missing a little something. Still a great weekend for our team, and we’ve now advanced to third in the Outlaws points. We’re looking forward to trying to make up more ground in the point battle with this week’s three events.”
Nick Hoffman returned on the World of Outlaws (WoO) Case Late Model Series eastern swing on Tuesday with the New York Stateline Showdown at Stateline Speedway (Busti, N.Y.).
In a field of 42 Late Models, Hoffman laid down the second-fastest qualifying lap in his time trial group before placing first in his heat race.
Overtaking pole-starting Gordy Gundaker on the second circuit of the feature, Nick dominated the remainder of the 40-lapper to secure his second-straight victory and first career WoO triumph. He bagged a $10,000 payday ahead of Max Blair, Bobby Pierce, Gundaker, and Chub Frank.
Thursday through Saturday found Hoffman competing in the WoO Battle at the Border at Sharon Speedway (Hartford, Ohio). With 40 entries on hand, the event roared to life on Thursday with a $6,000-to-win program. Notching the second fastest time in his qualifying group, he went on to finish second in his heat race, which positioned him seventh on the starting grid for the feature. Hoffman advanced two spots to cross the finish line in fifth behind Chris Madden, Bobby Pierce, Mike Marlar, and Brandon Sheppard.
On Friday another $6,000-to-win preliminary event was held, and Hoffman earned the ninth-starting spot for the feature via heat race action. He ran in the Top 10 throughout the 25-lap finale before crossing the finish line in ninth.
The busy week drew to a close on Sunday night with Nick entering the $25,000-to-win finale. He qualified second fastest in his time trial group and went on to finish third in his heat race. Lining up 12th on the feature grid for the 60-lap affair, Nick passed five cars to finish seventh.
Nick is currently third in the latest World of Outlaws point standings and leads the WoO Rookie of the Year battle.
Full results from the events as well as the latest standings are available at www.WorldofOutlaws.com .
The team now prepares to head northwest to Illinois and Kentucky for a three-race swing with the WoO contingent. Action opens on Thursday at Farmer City (Ill.) Raceway with the rescheduled Illini 100, which posts a $10,000 winner’s check. On Friday the team will head to the southern part of Illinois for a $12,000-to-win slate at Tri-City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Ill.). The trifecta concludes on Saturday night at Paducah (Ky.) International Raceway with a $15,000-to-win event.

Tyler Erb Lands in Legit Victory Lane; Seventh in Show-Me 100
Castrol FloRacing Night in America at Florence Speedway Up Next
ST. MARYS, Ohio (05/30/23) – Tyler Erb picked up his richest win thus far into the 2023 campaign last Monday night with a $10,000 XR Workin’ Man Series victory at Legit Speedway behind the wheel of his Bulk Material Lift / Anthony’s Pizza No. 1 Best Performance Motorsports / Sani-Weld Inc. / Base Racing Fuel / First Class Septic / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
The victory was his third of the 2023 season.
“It was tough, but our car was really good tonight,” Erb said in Victory Lane at Legit Speedway. “Things finally worked out into our favor. I got into a lapped car with 10 to go and luckily didn’t hurt nothing. We’ve been persevering a lot, just keep racing, we’re going on 12 or 13 days straight racing, just trying to get where we need to be. You know having that flat in the heat, if they didn’t have those (Dirt Defender) elimination races, starting eighth would’ve been a lot tougher.”
Back in action on Monday, Tyler Erb unloaded his Best Performance Motorsports No. 1 Late Model into battle at Legit Speedway Park (West Plains, Mo.) for the XR Workin’ Man Series-sanctioned Hard Times 50.
Drawing 36 Late Models, Erb held onto finish second in his heat race despite a late flat tire. Taking part in an elimination style head-to-head format to determine the starting grid for the top four rows, Tyler topped the qualifiers to earn the pole for the feature.
Leading flag-to-flag in the 50-lap affair, Erb turned back a mid-race challenge from Billy Moyer Jr. and went on to pick up his third win of the season and a $10,000 payday.
He finished 1.998 seconds ahead of Moyer with Ricky Weiss, Morgan Bagley, and Austin Rettig completing the top-five finishers.
On Thursday evening at Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Mo.) for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned Show-Me 100 weekend, Tyler locked his spot into the $6,000-to-win Cowboy Classic preliminary feature with a fourth-to-second run in his heat race. Relinquishing two spots in the 45-lapper, Erb crossed the line in ninth.
Friday’s preliminary action found Tyler behind the eight-ball early in the night with struggles in qualifying. He charged from the tail of the pack in his B-Main to finish third, which left him one spot shot of a transfer spot to the feature as his night ended early.
Via his performances the first two night, Erb locked into Saturday’s 100-lap finale in the 15th-starting position. After a trip to the hot pit early in the event, the Texas racer rebounded to finish seventh in the $50,000-to-win, crown jewel feature.
Tyler is now ninth in the latest LOLMDS standings.
Full results from the week’s events are available at www.XRWorkinMan.com and www.LucasDirt.com .
Tyler Erb and Best Performance Motorsports are now ready for a three-race week. Action opens on Wednesday at Florence Speedway (Union, Ky.) with a $23,023-to-win Castrol FloRacing Night in America event. From there the team resumes LOLMDS competition with a trip to West Virginia Motor Speedway (Mineral Wells, W.Va.). Legendary 100 weekend action includes a $10,000-to-win program on Friday and a $50,000-to-win event on Saturday.

Mechanical Issues Sideline Hudson O’Neal at the Show-Me 100
This week has three nights of racing scheduled for Rocket1 Racing. Action opens on Wednesday at Florence Speedway (Union, Ky.) with the seventh round of the Castrol FloRacing Night in America campaign. Hudson currently leads the way in the latest miniseries standings heading into the $23,023-to-win event.
Florence Speedway and West Virginia Motor Speedway Up Next
SHINNSTON, W.Va. (05/30/23) – Hudson O’Neal has passed more than a dozen competitors on Saturday night before bad luck bit in the form of a mechanical failure on lap 66 of the 31st annual Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 at Lucas Oil Speedway.
He was credited with a 20th-place finish in the final rundown aboard his Rocket1 Racing / Valvoline / Seubert Calf Ranches No. 1 Ace Metal Works / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.
“Our finish was definitely not indicative of our car on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway. We made gains all weekend, and this car was on dig in the 100 lapper on Saturday night but a mechanical failure got us. It’s unfortunate but sometimes it just happens. We have a big week in front of us, and this team is just awesome. I’m ready to go after more big checks,” O’Neal noted.
Rocket1 Racing and Hudson O’Neal kicked off their Memorial Day weekend on Thursday afternoon at Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Mo.) as the 31st annual Show-Me 100 opened with the Cowboy Classic.
With 59 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) competitors entered for the three-day event, O’Neal raced his way into the preliminary feature with a second-place finish in his consolation race after missing a transfer spot in his heat race. With $6,000 on the line, Hudson gained two spots in the 45-lapper to finish 21st.
For Friday’s Don & Billie Gibson Tribute, Hudson followed up a B-Main victory with a 16th-place finish in the 40-lap prelim.
Rolling off on the front row of his consolation event on Saturday, O’Neal locked his spot into the $50,000-to-win Show-Me 100 with a 15-lap victory. Starting 20th on the feature grid, Hudson was an early retiree from the 100-lapper on lap 67 as mechanical issues brought his outing to a disappointing early end. He was scored 20th in the final rundown.
Hudson remains second in the latest LOLMDS point standings.
Full results from the events are available at www.LucasDirt.com .
After being idle on Thursday the team thunders into Cody Watson’s West Virginia Motor Speedway (Mineral Wells, W.Va.) on Friday and Saturday for the Legendary 100. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) weekend is slated by a $10,000-to-win program on Friday and a $50,000-to-win finale on Saturday.

Hagar's Dream Weekend Yields Wins During First Three USCS Series Speedweek Races
Inside Line Promotions - HARRISBURG, Ark. (May 29, 2023) - Derek Hagar is undefeated through his first four starts of the 2023 season.
Hagar won all three rounds of the opening weekend for the USCS Series Speedweek last weekend, scoring victories on Friday at Lexington 104 Speedway in Lexington, Ark.; on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.; and on Sunday at Old No. 1 Speedway.
"I definitely haven't had this strong of a start to a season," he said. "I don't think I've won four in a row ever.
"I was hoping to get one or two wins this weekend to help us try to do the rest of Speedweek. I know we're capable of doing it, but things have to fall your way with pill draws and things like that. Every night things fell our way. We weren't the best on points. We only made the dash two nights and we were the last driver in those nights, but we made it work."
The busy weekend began on Friday at Lexington 104 Speedway, where Hagar maneuvered from third to second place in both a heat race and the dash to line up on the outside of the front row in the main event.
"In the heat race and the dash Dale (Howard) was quick in clean air," he said. "I told Kenny (Conrad) while we were getting ready for the feature that if I didn't beat him into turn one it was game over until we got to traffic. He had a better launch than I did and half slid turn one. I put four wheels in the fluff and never lifted and drove around him. We led the rest of the way."
The team ventured to Riverside International Speedway on Saturday. Hagar hustled from fifth to third place in a heat race. He missed a spot in the dash by only one position, lining him up seventh in the feature.
"I was idling around under caution and was looking at the bottom," he said. "Mother Nature was playing tricks on us with a steady trickle, which kept the moisture in the track longer than it normally does. We had a bottom in turns one and two, but it was slick everywhere else up to the cushion. I was playing in my head what everyone was going to do and it played into my hands. I figured people would stand on the gas and slide up. I hugged the infield tire and went seventh to third. I ran third for a minute. We had a caution and I got by Marshall (Skinner) a couple of laps after the caution. I was chasing Landon Crawley and he got into a couple of lapped cars and spun. The new rule is that even if you keep it going they send you to the back. We inherited the lead and pulled away after that. We had a couple of close encounters with the backstretch wall, but otherwise it was good."
The weekend concluded on Sunday at Old No. 1 Speedway. Hagar won a heat race from the pole position before he gained two spots in the dash to finish fourth. He continued to march forward in the A Main from the fourth starting spot.
"We made some big adjustments after the dash to get the car where we wanted it for the feature," he said. "We got to second really early. We got into lapped traffic pretty heavy. I was able to momentum through the slick and get by Dale on Lap 11 or Lap 12. We had a caution around halfway and I was trying to find where the track was going to take rubber. When you're leading it's in your mind if you're in the right spot. Dale stuck with me, but once we got back to traffic our car was so good it could go wherever we needed to go."
Hagar plans to tackle the remainder of the Speedweek with races this Thursday at North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Ala.; Friday at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Miss.; and Saturday at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Miss.

Rodney Sanders Wins Two USMTS Features During Deer Creek Weekend
Takes Over Summit USMTS Point Lead
HAPPY, Tex. (05/30/23) – Rodney Sanders visited Victory Lane twice over the Memorial Day weekend in his Wichita Tank Racing / Paulson Rock Products / Stussy Construction No. 20 Texas Locomotive Solutions / Kenny’s Tile / ARMI Contractors / MB Customs Race Car / Hatfield Racing Engine Modified.
Thursday and Friday’s action at Minnesota’s Deer Creek Speedway found Rodney collecting over $8,000 in winnings. The wins marked his fourth-and-fifth of the year.
“It was a big weekend for our team. We got two wins and added a pair of Top-10 finishes, which now puts us in the USMTS point lead. There’s still a long way to go in the season, but weekend’s like this will keep us in contention for a fifth series title,” Sanders commented.
Rodney Sanders added two more Summit United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) triumphs to his illustrious career on Thursday and Friday with feature wins in the 20th annual USMTS Southern Minnesota Spring Challenge at Deer Creek Speedway.
Sanders’ familiar No. 20 ride was one of 46 USMTS Modifieds in the pit area at the 3/8-mile oval in Spring Valley, Minnesota, on Thursday, when the three-day show kicked off with a 30-lap, $3,000-to-win race.
Sanders finished second in his heat and won his B-Main, starting the driver from Happy, Texas, 16th for the feature event. He charged through the field and took the top spot on lap 19, scoring the victory over Jim Chisholm, Alex Williamson, Jake O’Neil and Brandon Davis.
On Friday, Sanders set the quickest time in his group during qualifying and scored a third-place result in his heat race. He started on the pole for the 40-lap, $5,000 to win A-Main and never relinquished the lead, taking the victory by 0.271 seconds over a hard-driving Tanner Mullens. Williamson, Jake Timm and Tyler Wolff rounded out the Top 5 in the event which saw 52 USMTS entries.
The wins were Sanders’ fourth and fifth of the year overall and his 113th and 114th USMTS victories. The four-time USMTS National Champion also took over the series points lead.
Saturday night’s finale again featured 52 USMTS Modifieds, with each looking to score the night’s $10,000 top prize.
With a fifth-place finish in his heat and a fourth in his B-Main, Sanders rolled off 21st for the night’s main event. He moved forward 13 spots to finish eighth.
USMTS then headed to the Hawkeye State to wrap up its four-day slate of Memorial Day weekend races with War in West Union at the 3/8-mile Fayette County Speedway (West Union, Iowa). The events attracted 27 USMTS Modifieds.
Sanders finished fourth in his heat and started fifth on the grid for the 40-lap, $10,000-to-win feature. He moved forward one spot to finish fourth behind Zack VanderBeek, Tom Berry Jr. and Jason Hughes. Dan Ebert came home fifth.
With his weekend performances, Rodney has vaulted to the top of the latest Summit USMTS standings.
Full results as well as the complete latest standings are available at www.usmts.com .
Next up for Sanders is a visit to Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, La.) this Friday and Saturday for the Doug Murphrey Memorial, which is headlined by a $5,000-to-win each night for the USRA American Racer Modified Series.

Carson Ferguson Collects $7,553 I-75 Raceway Super Late Model Win
Claims Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Championship for Second-Straight Year
LINCOLNTON, N.C. (05/30/23) – Carson Ferguson not only picked up a $7,553 Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals victory over the weekend, but he also clinched his second-straight $10,053 series crown aboard his Hoopaugh Grading Company / Paylor Motorsports No. 93 WP Racing Shocks / Schaeffer’s Racing Oil / Longhorn Chassis by Wesley Page / Vic Hill Racing Engine Super Late Model.
Carson’s third win of the year came at I-75 Raceway on Friday evening.
“Going into the final three races, I knew I had Ross (Bailes) nipping at my heels for the championship, so we had to be as perfect as possible, and that’s what we did. We won at I-75 (Raceway), and added a pair of podiums to lock down the title,” Ferguson said. “Our team battled a little bad luck at Speedweeks, but ever since then we’ve really had a lot of speed. Everyone who supports me gives 110%. I’m grateful for each-and-every person who supports me and makes this all possible.
“We’re going to stick around the house this weekend and get our equipment ready to head to the (Dirt Late Model) Dream next week at Eldora. We had speed last year when we were there, and hopefully we can build on that next week.”
Before a triple-header weekend with the Schaffer's Oil Spring Nationals, Carson Ferguson made a quick stop at Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, S.C.) on Thursday evening to compete with the XR Workin' Man Series behind the wheel of Jeremy Bullins No. 00 machine.
With 33 Late Models in the pit area, Ferguson transferred to the Throwback 50 after a third-place run in his heat race. For the $10,000-to-win main event, Ferguson was involved in a mid-race incident, but still wheeled his way to a fourth-place finish.
Following the Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals to I-75 Raceway (Sweetwater, Tenn.) on Friday afternoon, Ferguson locked himself into the A-Main after recording the second-fastest lap in his qualifying group. Rolling off from the second row in the $7,553-to-win main event. Carson inherited the pole position after Benji Hicks suffered an early flat tire and led all 40 laps en route to his third-career Spring Nationals victory.
For the Biddle Ridley Memorial on Saturday afternoon at North Georgia Speedway (Chatsworth, Ga.), Carson earned a front row starting position after winning his heat race. For the $10,053-to-win main event, Ferguson battled Ross Bailes and Dale McDowell for the top spot but settled for a podium finish at the checkers.
With the tripleheader weekend drawing to a close at Duck River Raceway Park (Wheel, Tenn.) on Sunday afternoon, Carson topped his qualifying group and grabbed the victory in his heat race which set him up to start on the front row of the feature. With a runner-up outing in the series finale, Ferguson captured his second-career Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals championship along with a $10,053 payday.
Full results from the events are available at www.XRWorkinMan.com and www.SouthernNationalsSeries.com .
The team will be idle this weekend before invading Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on June 8 – 10 for the Dirt Late Model Dream XXIX. The crown jewel weekend includes twin $12,000-to-win programs on Thursday and Friday followed by a $129,000-to-win finale on Saturday.

Dirt Late Model Dream XXIV Up Next on June 8 – 10
MOORESBURG, Tenn. (05/30/23) – Dale McDowell banked a pair of $10,053 Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals triumphs over the holiday weekend behind the wheel of his Shane McDowell Racing / E-Z-GO No. 17m Cometic Gaskets / Klotz Synthetic Lubricants / Connected Strategy Advisors / Team Zero Race Cars / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
His trips to the Winner’s Circle came on Saturday at North Georgia Speedway (Chatsworth, Ga.) and on Sunday evening at Duck River Raceway Park (Wheel, Tenn.).
“Qualifying is so key in every event these days. You almost have to start up front in most of these events to have a chance to win. The fields are just that tough. Shane (McDowell) and my team gave me a great car all weekend, and we won at North Georgia (Speedway) and Duck River (Raceway Park). Just a great weekend for our team,” Dale McDowell shared. “Now, we’re going to put our head down and go to work to get ready for the Dream. Thanks to everyone who supports our team.”
Dale McDowell opened his Memorial Day weekend on Friday afternoon with a visit to I-75 Raceway (Sweetwater, Tenn.), piloting his E-Z-GO No. 17m Late Model.
Amongst a field of 34 Schaeffer’s Spring Nationals entries, McDowell raced his way into the A-Main with the third-fastest qualifying lap in his time trial group.

|Ian Madsen and TKS Motorsports rally big at Knoxville; Back to the Sprint Car Capital of the World on Saturday
By Fully Injected Motorsports:
MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (May 30, 2023) - Ian Madsen and TKS Motorsports are starting to find their rhythm at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, and although the Mitchellville, Iowa-based open wheel operation has yet to be victorious at Knoxville Raceway this season, recent results may indicate that the accomplishment to not too far away.
Madsen, wheelman of the Albaugh - Your Alternative, Iowa Barnstormers, Des Moines Industrial Products, deWit Construction, Jersey Freeze Ice Cream, Freedom Concrete Pumping, Finer Cuts Lawn Care, No. 2KS sprint car, finished eighth in his recent Knoxville Raceway attempt, and despite that being far from victorious, the path to get there was just as impressive, hard charging his way forward from 16th on the A-Main lineup.
Madsen’s preliminary effort at the Iowa staple included the tenth-fastest time of 30 entries, continuing on with a sixth-place outcome during heat race competition.
“We’re slowly working out the kinks…we’ll take it,” Troy Renfro, owner of the TKS Motorsports No. 2KS, said. “Having the ability and the drive to persevere is just as important as winning, and we proved our ability to persevere this weekend. I’m proud of this team. We’ll keep plugging away and get to the top eventually. That’s always been the goal.”
Other weekend highlights include finishing 16th and 18th in Huset’s Speedway’s two-day Northern Outlaw Sprint Association (NOSA) program on Sunday and Monday, May 28-29.
TKS Motorsports and Ian Madsen will continue their 2023 campaign with another visit to the “Sprint Car Capital of the World,” Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, June 3.

Brown back in the top-five at Knoxville; High Limit action continues Wednesday in Granite City

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. (May 30, 2023) - Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing may not have been victorious in their four-race Memorial Day weekend stretch, but they were close, highlighting their recent campaign with a top-five outcome at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 27.
Brown, ace of the Casey’s, FVP, Andy's Frozen Custard, Impact Signs Awnings and Wraps, Mt. Dew Overdrive, HAWK Hunting, Ditzfeld Transfer, No. 21 sprint car, finished fourth in his recent Knoxville visit, racing ahead three positions after starting seventh on the evening grid. Brown’s preliminary effort included the second-fastest time during qualifying time trials, finishing second again during his respective heat race. “Blackjack,” who headquarters his race team in Grain Valley, Missouri, is certainly no stranger to success at Knoxville Raceway, earning a recent victory at the Iowa staple on Saturday, May 20; the 61st of Brown’s storied career.
Other Memorial Day weekend results include finishing 11th during ASCS National action at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, on Friday, May 26, followed by 13th and 15th-place finishes during a two-day stay at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, on Sunday and Monday, May 28-29.
Brown’s result at Lakeside is deceiving at best, as he was a winning threat not only once, but twice.
While attempting a slide job within the top-five, Brown accidentally made contact with another competitor and spun, ultimately forcing him to the rear. Fast forward and Brown is back in the top-five battling for position, only this time, a flat tire led him to the rear.
“A pretty solid weekend for our Casey’s/FVP team. I think we were fast enough to be winners Friday night at Lakeside, but if it was not for bad luck, we’d have no luck at all,” Brown stated. “The next few weeks are going to be busy. My guys work hard and are ready for anything.”
Brian Brown and Brian Brown Racing will continue their 2023 campaign with an exciting week through the Midwest, first joining the High Limit Sprint Car Series in a midweek visit to Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois, on Wednesday, May 31, followed by back-to-back nights at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, June 2-3. Brown will compete in 360 competition on Friday and 410 competition on Saturday.
