Nick Hoffman Bags Two More Summit Modified Nationals Wins
Busy Week of Racing Starts Tuesday

Mooresville, North Carolina (07/06/21) – Nick Hoffman raced to two more wins last week in his Elite Chassis No. 2 Wehrs Machine / Fox Shocks Modified. With the victories he now has 20 wins on the year and has won all nine Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals events that he’s entered.

His latest victories came on Friday at The Dirt Oval at Route 66 and Lincoln Speedway.

“We raced three times last week. We won two of them and had a good chance to win the other one (Lawrenceburg Speedway) before a racing deal caused us to spin and sent us to the tail of the field. Just one of those deals, but we were still able to rebound to finish fourth,” Hoffman said. “Overall, it was another great week of racing for our team, and we’ll keep digging this week looking for more wins.”

Nick Hoffman returned to action win the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals on Friday night with a trip to The Dirt Oval at Route 66. The North Carolina racer made a clean sweep of the program by setting fast time, winning his heat race, and winning the feature. The victory was his eighth-straight in series action and his 19th overall triumph of the season. The win also marked his 46th-career series triumph.

On Saturday night Nick Hoffman Motorsports took a one-night break from the Modified Nationals as the team trekked to the “Hoosier State” for the $10,444.44-to-win Merrill Downey Memorial at Indiana’s Lawrenceburg Speedway. Hoffman started the night with the fastest time in qualifying, and then won his heat race from the fourth-starting spot.

A fifth-to-second run in the dash, positioned Nick second on the starting grid for the feature. He got to the lead on lap 14, before trading several slidejobs with Tyler Nicely as they battled for the top spot. Unfortunately, bad luck bit when the two made incidental contact, which sent both drivers spinning. Hoffman tagged the back of the pack and rebounded to fourth.

On Sunday evening Hoffman rejoined the Summit Modified Nationals tour with a trip to Lincoln (Ill.) Speedway. Thirty-six racers entered the program, and after setting fast time in his group, Nick won his heat race to earn the pole position for the feature. For the ninth-straight time in series action, Hoffman led every lap of the feature. He was rewarded with a $1,500 winner’s check for his 20th victory of the season and 47th-career series win.

“I just got out to a decent lead, and I can watch that big DIRTVision board off of Turn 2 and see how big of a lead I had,” Hoffman said. “That helps a bunch. “I felt like I could’ve made another adjustment and been even better, so I’ll just write that in the notebook for next time.”

Nick Hoffman Racing has four races in five days scheduled this week in Illinois with the Summit Modified Nationals. Action opens Tuesday night at Knox County Fair Speedway before shifting to Spoon River Speedway on Wednesday. The week will draw to a close on Friday and Saturday with events at Farmer City Raceway and Highland Speedway.

Howard Moore Races to Back-To-Back USCS Sprint Car Victories
Increases Win Total to Five with Riverside and Magnolia Triumphs

Memphis, Tennessee (07/06/21) – Holiday weekend action found Howard Moore twice topping United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder action in his Rains Motorsports/ Mike's Pool Care No. 3 High-Performance Lubricants Sprint Car.

The Tennessee throttle masher bested the competition on Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway before winning Sunday night’s go at Magnolia Motor Speedway.

“We carried last week’s momentum into this weekend’s events, and we were able to ‘park it’ on Saturday and Sunday,” Moore noted. “A.G. (Rains) and Mike (Ward) have got this car absolutely dialed in right now, and I’m having a blast in the driver’s seat.”

After seeing Thursday night's scheduled action at I-30 Speedway claimed by Mother Nature, Howard Moore and Rains Motorsports kicked off their holiday weekend of action on Friday night at Old No. 1 Speedway (Harrisburg, Ark.) with the United Speed Contest Series (USCS) Sprint Car Tour presented by K&N Filters.

In a field of 26 Sprinters, Howard earned the sixth-starting spot for the feature. He would run in the Top 10 throughout the feature before crossing the finish line in sixth.

Saturday evening found the action shifting to the historic Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Ark.) for another USCS program. A sixth-to-third run in his heat race positioned Moore fifth on the starting grid for the 30-lap feature.

In the finale, Howard bided his time before working into the lead in the closing laps. He went on to score the victory, which marked his fourth of the 2021 campaign.

Dale Howard, Terry Gray, Brad Bowden, and Cody Gardner completed the Top-5 finishers.

Howard brought his busy weekend of racing to a close on Sunday night at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Miss.) as the USCS Sprint Cars drew 19 entries to the track known as "The Mag." Beginning the night with a victory in the Hoosier Speed Dash, Moore backed it up with a heat race win to earn the third-starting spot for the feature.

Howard ran in a podium position throughout the feature and looked to be on his way to a runner-up finish before race leader, Derek Hagar, had a tire go flat on the final circuit. Moore inherited the lead and powered away from the field on the green-white checkered restart to pick up his second-straight win and fifth overall of the season.

"Man that's a heartbreaking way for Derek (Hagar) to lose the race. I hate it for him, but we were in position to capitalize if anything went wrong for the leader, and that's what we did," Moore said. "What a great weekend for our team. I just can't thank everyone, enough who supports this program. I'm just the lucky guy who gets to drive the car."

Marshall Skinner, Dale Howard, Brent Crews, and Landon Crawley rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

Full results from the weekend are available at .

This Saturday the team will trek to Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway for a Weekly Racing Series Event. Howard currently holds a two-point advantage atop the latest track standings for the Sprint Car division.

Garrett Alberson Scores First-Career Lucas Oil MLRA Triumph
Pockets $5,000 for 34 Raceway Winning Performance

Las Cruces, N.M. (07/06/21) – Garrett Alberson scored another career first on Saturday night. He piloted the Ken & Beth Roberts-owned No. 59 Nutrien Ag Solutions/ Roemer Machine & Welding/ Black Diamond Chassis Super Late Model to his first-ever Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA) victory.

His maiden trip to the Winner’s Circle with the tour came at Iowa’s 34 Raceway and was worth $5,000.

“Man, what a big win for our team, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say that things were pretty intense late in the race. I was having such a hard time getting around the 76 car there, and I needed to make speed because my car was getting kind of flat feeling,” Alberson said of the race’s late stages, while proudly standing in Victory Lane. “I saw him (Jeremiah Hurst) down there and I told myself, ‘These have got to be the best five laps of your life right here.’ What an awesome run. We have been working for this for a long time and been getting really close. It just feels awesome.”

Kicking off his extended holiday weekend of racing action, Garrett Alberson entered the DIRTcar Summer Nationals program on Thursday afternoon at Davenport Speedway (Davenport, Iowa). With a stacked field of 35 Late Models on hand, Garrett posted a third-place finish in his heat, which positioned him ninth on the starting grid for the $5,000-to-win A-Main. After running in the Top-10 for the first half of the race, Alberson suffered a flat right-rear tire while running in seventh that forced him to retire on lap 27.

The following night at 300 Raceway (Farley, Iowa) for the Lucas Oil MLRA sanctioned contest, Alberson qualified 10th fastest in his group before placing fourth in his heat race. With $5,000 on the line in the 40-lap feature, Garrett diced through the field seven spots to register a third-place finish. He trailed Billy Moyer Jr. and Jesse Stovall to the checkers with Mason Oberkramer and Chris Simpson rounding out the Top-5.

For the weekend finale on Saturday afternoon at 34 Raceway (Burlington, Iowa), Garrett gained three spots in his heat race to pick up the eight-lap victory. Holding off his Roberts Racing teammate Jeremiah Hurst’s late-race charge, Alberson raced to his first -career Lucas Oil MLRA triumph, which came over Hurst, Billy Moyer Jr., Tad Pospsil, and Tony Jackson Jr. He earned $5,000 for his second win of the season.

With his weekend performances, Garrett climbed to second in the latest Lucas Oil MLRA standings.

Full results from these events are available at and

This weekend, Garrett Alberson and Roberts Motorsports plan to compete in Friday night’s $10,000-to-win, DIRTcar Summer Nationals event at Farmer City Raceway (Farmer City, Ill.) before entering a $2,500-to-win FALS Cup at Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway on Saturday evening. The team may add another DIRTcar Summer Nationals event to this week’s schedule, but those details are still up in the air.

Garrett Alberson and Roberts Motorsports would like to thank their marketing partners, which include Nutrien Ag Solutions, Done Right Satellite, DoneRight.TV Motorsports, Dish Network, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Capri College, Lucas Oil Products, A&E Freight Service, Preston Telephone Company, Roemer Machine & Welding, Winstein Kavinsky & Cunningham LLC, RCS Union Software, Live Klaf Love, Swift Springs, Capital Sign Co., Stucey Enterprises, Black Diamond Race Cars, Advance Racing Suspension, Penske Shocks, Hoosier Racing Tires, Fast Shafts, Performance Bodies, VP Racing Fuels, UAW, Keizer Wheels, Dubuque Moving & Storage, S&S Builders, Key City Metal Works, Sweet Manufacturing, Praxair, Clements Racing Engines, Keyser Manufacturing, Super Clean, Beyea Headers, Velocita USA, Out-Pace Race Products, PEM Gears and Drivetrain, Buddha Bert Transmissions,  Dish Premier & Google Nest Powered by Done Right TV & Security Solutions, Advance Racing Suspensions, Swift Springs, Capri College, Fast Shafts, VP Racing Fuels, Accu-Force Dynos and Testers, and Marketing Services.

Crowned $2,000 Independence Week Champion

NEW BERLIN, Ill. (07/06/21) – Brandon Sheppard visited Victory Lane twice over the holiday weekend in his family-owned Dennis G. Woodworth Attorney at Law No. B5 Valvoline/ The Goddard School for Early Childhood Development/ Pro Power Racing Engines/ Rocket Chassis Super Late Model.

Both victories came in DIRTcar Summernationals action with a $10,000 win at Fayette County Speedway on Saturday and a $5,000 victory on Sunday at Lincoln Speedway. Additionally, based on his consistency throughout the week he was rewarded with a $2,000 prize for topping the Independence Week points with the series.

“Early in the week we weren’t bad, but we were battling some mechanical issues. We got those resolved before the Fayette County Speedway event, and got the win there. The next night at Lincoln we weren’t that great in the feature, but we were able to get the lead when Brian (Shirley) had an issue and went on to get another win,” Sheppard recounted. “Overall, it was a fun week of racing with our family-owned team.

“We’re going to run one more Hell Tour event in the No. B5 this Wednesday at Spoon River Speedway before we get back to Outlaws racing on Friday in Minnesota.”

Making his 2021 DIRTcar Summer Nationals debut behind aboard his family-owned Valvoline No. B5 Late Model, Brandon Sheppard trekked to Beaver Dam Raceway (Beaver Dam, Wis.) on Wednesday for the eighth round of the Hell Tour. In a field of 22 cars, Sheppard followed the 10th fastest lap in time trials with a second-place finish in his heat, which came behind Frank Heckenast Jr. Starting the $5,000-to-win A-Main in fourth, Brandon improved two spots in the 40-lapper to register a runner-up finish. He trailed Bobby Pierce to the checkers with Ashton Winger, Brian Shirley, and Tanner English rounding out the Top-5.

The following night at Davenport Speedway (Davenport, Iowa) on the quarter-mile oval, Brandon grabbed the fourth-and-final transfer spot in his heat, which positioned him 13th on the starting grid for the A-Main. Wheeling his way into a podium spot, Sheppard marched forward 10 spots to place third. He followed Bobby Pierce and Frank Heckenast Jr. across the line with Tony Jackson Jr. and Shannon Babb rounding out the Top-5.

For the third stop of the week on Friday at the Dirt Oval at Route 66 Raceway (Joliet, Ill.), Sheppard locked his spot into the $10,000-to-win A-Main with a third-place finish in his heat race. Fading one spot in the 30-lap affair, Brandon recorded a sixth-place finish.

On Saturday evening at Fayette County Speedway (Brownstown, Ill.), Brandon topped the speed charts in his time trial group before picking up a 10-lap heat race victory. Dominating all 50 laps of the feature, Sheppard cruised to his sixth win of the season, which came over Tanner English, Shannon Babb, Jason Feger, and Mitch McGrath. He pocketed $10,000 for his 25th Hell Tour triumph.

Concluding his week with the Summer Nationals on Sunday, Sheppard traveled to Lincoln Speedway (Lincoln, Ill.) for the 12th round of the Hell Tour. After registering the second-fastest time in his group behind Brian Shirley, Brandon streaked to a heat race victory, sending him into the redraw.

Receiving the second-starting position for the feature alongside Shirley, Sheppard inherited the lead on the 15th lap when Shirley suffered mechanical issues. He fought off an ill-handling car in the remaining distance of the 40-lapper to capture his second victory in as many nights and seventh of the season. He finished ahead of Bobby Pierce, Jason Feger, Tanner English, and Frank Heckenast Jr. to claim $5,000.

Claims $5,000 for First Victory of ’21 Season

Batesville, Arkansas (07/06/21) – Billy Moyer Jr. finally shook the monkey off his back on Friday night as he raced to his first win of the 2021 season. He picked up a $5,000 payday in the Lucas Oil Midwest Racing Association (MLRA) event at Iowa’s 300 Raceway.

Moyer Jr. registered the victory aboard his Nutrien Ag Solutions No. 21jr Hass Horizontal/ Mesilla Valley Transportation/ Capital Race Car/ Clements Racing Engines Super Late Model.

“We have been really, really struggling,” Moyer shared in 300 Raceway’s Victory Lane. “The track kind of rubbered there, but we had to have a pretty good car there early and kind of did what we needed to do. I was really trying to preserve my tires, and I told (myself) you’ve got to get the lead and that was the hard part and then the hardest is just managing your tires. I’m just glad to get a win, it has been a long, long time.

“While we haven’t had the best of luck, we’ve had a fast car. Even more, we’ve got some amazing folks, who support this team and haven’t give up on us. We also recently added Kent Kafer and the folks at Pontiac RV on board as a marketing partner, and that’s been a huge shot in the arm for our team. Again, I just can’t thank everyone enough who supports this racing program.”

Wednesday night saw Billy Moyer Jr. return to competition with the DIRTcar Summer Nationals as the series headed north to Beaver Dam Raceway (Beaver Dam, Wis.) for the eighth round of the Hell Tour.

The following night at Davenport Speedway (Davenport, Iowa) on the quarter-mile oval, Billy grabbed the fourth-and-final transfer spot in his heat, which positioned him 15th on the starting grid for the A-Main. After bringing out the first caution of the race, Moyer Jr. was an early retiree from the 40-lap affair on lap 21.

On Friday afternoon, Moyer Jr. remained in the Hawkeye State as he invaded 300 Raceway (Farley, Iowa) to compete with the Lucas Oil MLRA. After topping the 24-car field in time trials, Billy cruised to a heat race victory, which positioned him on the pole for the feature. Completing the perfect sweep, Moyer Jr. led every lap to capture his first win of the season and a $5,000 prize. He took the checkers ahead of Jesse Stovall, Garrett Alberson, Mason Oberkramer, and Chris Simpson to claim his sixth career MLRA triumph.

The weekend drew to a close on Saturday night at Iowa’s 34 Raceway as a $5,000-to-win Lucas Oil MLRA program took center stage. Via prelim action, Moyer Jr. earned the pole position for the feature. He paced the opening circuits before ultimately settling into a third-place finish behind race winner, Garrett Alberson, and Jeremiah Hurst.
