Ryan Timms Sweeps Border Battle with Three-Straight Wins
Claims $10,000 Bonus for Dominant Performance
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (06/20/22) – Weekend action found Ryan Timms going to Victory Lane for three-straight nights in Northern Outlaw Sprint Association (NOSA) competition in his CitGard Engine Oil / driveWFX.com No. 5T CITGO / Hampel Oil / Western Flyer Xpress / Mystik Lubricants / Eagle Chassis/ Rider Racing Engine Sprint Car.
He swept Friday and Saturday action at Jackson Motorplex before capping things with a Sunday night win at Husets Speedway during The Border Battle to push his season win tally to eight. Via the three weekend triumphs he also claimed the $10,000 Buffalo Wild Wings Triple Crown bonus.
Timms third-and-final conquest was by far the most challenging of the weekend.
"I really can't believe we won that," he said of his Husets Speedway victory. "I really didn't expect to win it from ninth. It was pretty cool to get the win on Father's Day for my dad (Randy Timms). When I got to second, he (Ayrton Gennetten) was pretty far away. Like a lap later he was right there. It was pretty treacherous, and I about messed up a few times, but thankfully I got the job done."
“We had a great week and to get three wins plus the $10,000 bonus is an accomplishment our whole team is proud of. We’re going to take the upcoming weekend off to regroup, and then we’ll be getting ready for a busy upcoming stretch of racing. Thanks to every single sponsor on my car, and I encourage everyone to please support them whenever possible and let them know where you heard about them.”
Ryan Timms was back behind the wheel of his CitGard Engine Oil No. 5T Sprint Car on Friday evening at Jackson (Minn.) Motorplex to kick off The Border Battle presented by Trelleborg.
With 35 Northern Outlaw Sprint Association (NOSA) entries on the grounds for the opener, Timms stopped the clock fifth-fastest in his group before placing second in his heat race. Lined up eighth for the main event, Ryan wasted no time moving forward as he blasted into the top-five early and made an impressive move from fourth-to-second on 11th circuit.
Winning a late-race battle over Kaleb Johnson, Timms stormed to his sixth win of the season ahead of Johnson, Lynton Jeffrey, Jack Dover, and Matt Duhl.
For the second round on Saturday afternoon, Ryan followed up the fastest time in his qualifying group with a fourth-place finish in his heat. Receiving the second-starting position for the A-Main via the redraw, Timms led flag-to-flag in the 25-lapper to claim his second win in as many nights and seventh of the 2022 campaign. He bagged a $5,000 payday ahead of Matt Juhl, Ayrton Gennetten, Brooke Tatnell, and Austin McCarl.
Wrapping up The Border Battle presented by Trelleborg on Sunday, Timms stopped at Huset’s Speedway (Brandon, S.D.) as he was gunning for the $10,000 Buffalo Wild Wings Triple Crown Bonus for anyone who could win all three events.
With a heat race victory pinning him on the fifth row for the main event, Ryan tracked down early leader Ayrton Gennetten by the midway point and made the pass for the lead on the bottom on the 16th circuit to assume command.
Timms held off the field after a late-race caution to capture his eighth win of the season and the $10,000 bonus. He took the checkers ahead of Gennetten, Austin McCarl, Justin Henderson, and Kaleb Johnson.

Nick Hoffman Wins Five Straight Summit Modified Nationals Features
Action Resumes Wednesday at Adams County Speedway
Mooresville, North Carolina (06/20/22) – Nick Hoffman enjoyed a successful week in his Wehrs Machine & Racing Products / Outlaw Mini Loaders No. 2 NOS Energy Drink / FOX Racing Shox / Rockwell Security / Elite Chassis Modified.
He banked five-straight DIRTcar Modified Nationals victories, including wins at Kankakee County Speedway, Peoria Speedway, Tri-City Speedway, Fairbury Speedway, and Sycamore Speedway as his 2022 triumph total increased to 10.
“Man it was a hot week, but it was a great week. Anytime you go to Victory Lane it’s obviously great, but I was especially proud of the victory at Tri-City Speedway on Friday because we had to come from behind and catch (Mike) Harrison to get the win,” Hoffman said. “We’re gearing up for another busy week with the Modified starting at Quincy (Adams County Speedway) on Wednesday, and we may also be making some Super Late Model starts later in the week as well. Still work on those details though.
“As always, a big thanks goes out to my family, my team, my sponsors and everyone who supports this hot rod.”
Nick Hoffman hit the ground running in the 2022 Summit Modified Nationals with a Tuesday night victory at Kankakee (Ill.) County Speedway. From the third-starting spot Hoffman stormed to the lead and ultimately the $1,500 win in the opening round of the miniseries 12th season.
His 58th-career triumph with the tour came ahead of Jamie Lomax, Trevor Neville, Kyle Steffens, and Kenny Wallace.
Action continued on Wednesday night with a $1,500-to-win Summit Modified Nationals program at Peoria (Ill.) Speedway. From the second-starting position Hoffman paced the main event, but he had to turn back repeated challenges from Dave Wietholder. Ultimately Nick picked up the triumph, which marked his seventh of the season.
After an off-day on Thursday the team rolled into Tri-City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Ill.) on Friday evening. Twenty-seven Summit Modified Nationals racers were on hand for the program, and Nick earned the fourth-starting spot for the 25-lap feature.
Nick worked his way into the runner-up position by the race's midpoint as he set his sights on leader, Mike Harrison. Hoffman erased a one-second lead and edged ahead for the lead with laps remaining and went on to claim his 60th series win.
Harrison, Will Krup, Dave Wietholder, and Lucas Lee completed the Top-5 finishers.
On Saturday night the Summit Modified Nationals action slid north to Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway for a $2,000-to-win program.
Twenty-two racers took to the 1/4-mile bullring, but it would be Hoffman who dominated the show. He won his heat race from the third-starting spot to earn the pole for the 25-lap feature. In the main event he wired the field to pick up yet another win with Ethan Weber, Kyle Steffens, Michael Ledford, and Trevor Neville completing the Top 5.
On Sunday night Hoffman stormed to his fifth-straight Summit Modified Nationals win with a sweep of the program at Sycamore Speedway (Maple Park, Ill.) as his 2022-win total grew to 10.
Full results are available at www.DIRTcarSummerNationals.com .
Hoffman’s racing slate with the Summit Equipment DIRTcar Modified Nationals is currently scheduled to resume on Wednesday at Adams County Speedway (Quincy, Ill.) before moving to Spoon River Speedway (Banner, Ill.) on Thursday and then a doubleheader in the St. Louis Firecracker Faceoff at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 (Pevely, Mo.) on Friday and Saturday.

Hagar Captures ASCS National Tour Win and Greg Hodnett Memorial Triumph During Special Weekend
Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (June 20, 2022) - Derek Hagar enjoyed one of the most fruitful weekends in his sprint car career last weekend.
Hagar captured his seventh career Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour triumph on Friday at Texarkana 67 Speedway before he scored his first-ever Greg Hodnett Memorial triumph on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.
"That was probably the biggest weekend I've had since I won the Air Capital Shootout in Kansas in 2016," he said. "It was real big for our team. To go out and win a national race and be a spoiler for them and then be able to do the same thing the next night at a meaningful event honoring Greg Hodnett was pretty special."
Hagar was stout throughout his debut at Texarkana 67 Speedway, where he qualified second quickest in his group and advanced from third to second place in a heat race. That put him on the inside of the second row in the A Main at the dirt oval in Texarkana, Ark.
"We went out there and practiced good and qualified decent for our heat race," he said. "That gave us some good passing points. We were third in points overall and Garet Williamson drew the zero so there was no feature inversion.
"I was able to get a good start. Matt Covington drove around Williamson on the start and we had a caution. I was anticipating Williamson to go to the top on the next attempt at the start. When he did it killed his momentum and I was able to get by him. I went to the top the next lap and then I noticed lapped traffic was getting faster than I was. Before I could move down Williamson drove by me into turn three. He tried to get by a lapped car and I stuck the bottom in turn one and was able to get back by him. Luckily we had a couple of cautions to where I had clean track and didn't have to worry."
Hagar's win was his second of the season with the series.
The weekend concluded on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway, which hosted the 4th annual Greg Hodnett Memorial.
"We had a terrible pill draw that put me dead last in the final heat race of the night," he said. "We were able to get up through there pretty quick, but there was a caution on the first lap and went from starting last to restarting third. We didn't get as good of a start the second time and ran third most of the heat race. I was able to get by Blake Jenkins in turns three and four on the last lap to run second, which lined us up on the front row of the feature.
"I got a good start to the main event and I slid the corner going into turn one on the initial green to carry my momentum. It was a top dominant track. It slicked off as the feature went on. There wasn't any middle or bottom. If you wanted to get by someone you had to do a slide job. Trying to thread the needle in traffic gave us a couple of close calls. Fortunately we led the distance to get the big win."
The victory was the eighth of the year for Hagar.
Next up for the team is an ASCS Mid-South Region race this Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark. Hagar enters with a 147-point lead in the championship standings.
