Joseph Joiner Scores Career Victory in Super Bee 100 Finale
Florida Racer Collects $50,001 for His Winning Performance

MILTON, Fla. (09/27/21) – Joseph Joiner scored a whopping $50,001 payday in Saturday night’s Super Bee 100 finale behind the wheel of his Trading Paints No. 10 Langenfelder Mechanical Contractors / Three Trade Consultants/ Law Offices of Cole & Davis/ Capital Race Car Crate Late Model.

The historic win, which came at Louisiana’s Super Bee Speedway, marked his fourth trip of 2021 to the Winner’s Circle. The $50,001 mega payday more than tripled his previous career-highest payout, which was $15,000 and came in the 2020 National 100 at East Alabama Motor Speedway.

“I was just making sure I hit my marks every lap,” commented Joiner, who adjusted his line to the middle of turns three and four in the closing laps after signals from crew chief Jesse Enterkin. “Jesse was back there on the back straightaway signaling me if I needed to move around and he made a good call for me to move down in three and four about last 10 or 15 laps. Oh man, I’m gonna have a hard time believing this.

“This victory is dedicated to my family, my crew, my sponsors, my fans, and everyone who believes in us. I just can’t put into words yet what this means to our team.”

With 61 cars entered, Joseph qualified second-fastest in his group on Thursday evening at the ¼-mile oval before winning his heat race on Friday night to earn the outside-front-row starting position alongside Carson Ferguson for Saturday night’s 100-lap finale.

Joiner followed Ferguson through the race’s early portions with both drivers running low around the paper-clipped quarter-mile track. Following a lap-21 restart, Joiner found the high line around turns three and four and used it to pass Ferguson just after the next restart 10 laps later.

Once out front Joseph turned back challenges from an array of drivers before ultimately picking up the massive victory.

Cade Dillard, B.J. Robinson, Matt Henderson and Carson Ferguson completed the Top-5 finishers.

The team is currently evaluating their racing options for the upcoming weekend, and once finalized will be posted on the team’s cyber home at .

Also Crowned 2021 Ultimate Southeast Series Rookie of the Year

North Augusta, South Carolina (09/27/21) – Consider it mission accomplished for Cla Knight. Via his performances in the series’ 2021 finale on Saturday night at Modoc Raceway, the 26-year-old South Carolina racer clinched both the Ultimate Southeast Series Super Late Model Championship and Cruise with the Champions Rookie of the Year title.

With the feat, he entered rare air, joining Tyler Millwood as the only driver to ever claim both titles in the same year on the tour.

“What an amazing feeling to officially clinch both the Championship and the Rookie title. As a team we worked so hard and learned so much this year. The Super Late Model division is no joke, and every single night there’s a ton of guys who can get the job done. We took our lumps, kept digging, and it’s great to win our first Super Late Model series title,’ Knight said. “We’ve got so many great folks behind our program, and without their support there’s no way we could’ve got to this point. I thank each-and-every one of them.

“While the points season for us may be over, we definitely aren’t done this year though. We’ve got several races still on the schedule, and we’re going to try and grab some wins.”

Saturday evening found Knight taking his E-Z-GO No. 42 Augusta Aquatics / M&W Transport / Barry Wright Race Car / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model into battle at Modoc Raceway (Modoc, S.C.). The $4,000-to-win Clarks Hill Classic was sanctioned by the Ultimate Southern Series, and Cla earned the third-starting spot for the feature via preliminary action.

Dale McDowell Crowned King of the Mountain at Volunteer Speedway
Georgia Racer to be Sidelined by Health Issues for the Next Month

MOORESBURG, Tenn. (09/27/21) –
With an impending hiatus from the driver’s seat related to health issues, Dale McDowell enjoyed a triumphant performance on Saturday night at Smoky Mountain Speedway in his Shane McDowell Racing/ E-Z-GO No. 17m Cometic Gaskets/ Klotz Synthetic Lubricants / Team Zero Race Cars/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

The Georgia native wired the Southern All Star field to claim the $7,500 winner’s check in the King of the Mountain event at the Tennessee oval. In Victory Lane, McDowell revealed that he’d be taking a hiatus from racing after the event to take care of some health issues.

"I've got some health issues. We're going to miss all of October," McDowell said in victory lane. "It was good to win my last (race for a while), but I was looking forward to coming back here and going to some of those (upcoming) races. But without my health, I've gotta take care of that first, so I'm going to be out five, six weeks, and hopefully run there some in November. ... I wish we could come back. This car's really good. (Car owner and brother) Shane really needs to get somebody (to drive) this thing and race these races. I don't know what he's going to do. But anyway, a good night tonight."

On Saturday evening, Shane McDowell Racing and Dale McDowell invaded Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tenn.) for the Southern All Star Series-sanctioned King of the Mountain. With preliminary events lining him up third on the starting grid for the feature, Dale overtook Payton Freeman for the lead on the fifth circuit and paced the field for the remaining distance of the 50-lapper to register his fourth win of the season and 45th -career series triumph. He finished ahead of Freeman, Eli Beets, Zack Mitchell, and Sam Seawright to claim $7,500.

Complete results from this event are available at .

The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer is undergoing prostate cancer surgery today (Monday, September 27). Doctors have indicated that the cancer appears to be confined to his prostate and are optimistic that, with successful surgery, no further treatment will be necessary.

With McDowell’s recovery time from the surgery is estimated to be a minimum of six weeks, Shane McDowell Racing notes that “Dale will be just as eager to get back behind the wheel as his fans will be to see the 17m back on the track ... but we’ll leave that up to the doctors.”

Please continue to keep Dale and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Shane McDowell Racing would like to thank all of their sponsors and marketing partners including E-Z-GO, Cometic Gaskets, Klotz Synthetic Lubricants, Connected Strategy Advisors, Fox Racing Shox, Waddell Transfer Inc, ShearWorx, Shackelford Enterprizes, Spring Pro, Northeastern Fabrication, Team Zero Race Cars, Clements Race Engines-Chevrolet, FK Rod Ends, Go Lithium, Schoenfeld Headers, Keyser Manufacturing, MSD Ignition, All Star Performance, Performance Bodies, Five-Star Bodies, Hoosier Tire, Wiles Driveshafts, Weld Racing Wheels, Butlerbuilt Seats, DMI Racing Products, Jones Racing Products, Safecraft Safety Equipment, Wilwood Disc Brakes, Dyers Top Rods, QuickCar, PEM Racing, Walker Filtrations, Mark IV ATV's, Winters Rearends, Strange Oval Products Sweet Manufacturing, Peterson Fluid Systems, DirtWraps, and Marketing Services.

Lucas Oil MLRA Stop at Sycamore Speedway Up Next

LEBANON, Mo. (09/27/21) Tony Jackson Jr. passed twenty cars to win Thursday night’s $3,000 top prize at Tri-City Speedway in his Lebanon Ready Mix No. 56 Willard Quarries / Base Fuels / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

“Well, we definitely won Thursday night the hard way,” laughed Jackson Jr. “We were fast in hot laps but struggled in qualifying and then got collected in a crash the first lap of the heat race. We tore up a bunch of stuff, but my crew thrashed to piece it back together for the B-Main. We won the B-Main and then came from 21st to the lead with four laps to go in the feature and got the win. It was a pretty awesome rally by our team.

“Friday night started out exactly the same as Thursday with some bad luck that left us starting deep in the feature again. I was able to salvage a third-place finish, and then on Saturday night we started up front, but just wasn’t quite good enough and finished third. All-in-all a pretty solid weekend of finishes for our team.”

On Thursday afternoon, Tony Jackson Jr. visited Tri-City Speedway (Granite City, Ill.) to compete in the opening round of the Super Late Model portion of the Modified Mania tripleheader. After getting behind the eight-ball in time trials, Jackson Jr. rebounded from a scuffle in his heat to pick up the B-Main win. Charging from the tail of the field in the feature, Tony passed 20 cars in the 30-lapper to capture his fifth win of the season and a $3,000 prize. He finished ahead of Rusty Schlenk, Trevor Gundaker, Blaze Burwell, and Brent McKinnon.

He was relegated to the B-Main, which he won to once again earn the 21st-starting spot for the feature. He was able to rally to a third-place finish in the $3,000-to-win main event.

The weekend drew to a close on Saturday night with another $3,000-to-win program as Tony’s night started on a much brighter note with the second-fastest lap in his qualifying group followed by a heat race win.

Rico Abreu scores 4-Crown All Star victory; Williams Grove National Open on the horizon

Date: Friday, September 24th
Event: BeFour the Crowns Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): DNQ

Date: Saturday, September 25th
Event: 4-Crown Nationals
Series: All Star Circuit of Champions
Track: Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 1st (2nd)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (September 27, 2021) - In convincing fashion, nonetheless, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu secured his place in sprint car racing history books yet again, doing so by scoring the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 portion of the annual 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

Abreu, now a three-time All Star winner at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, led every circuit of the 30-lap contest, forced to withstand an early run in with traffic, as well as a late surge by Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Parker Price-Miller. The 4-Crown Nationals triumph earned the West Coast invader a $6,000 payday, now a ten-time All Star winner over the course of his career.

The victory was a perfect rebound after suffering from engine trouble during the World of Outlaws’ Befour the Crowns Showdown on Friday; Abeu did not qualify for the main event.

“I’m just so thankful for our supporters this year,” Rico Abreu said, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/XYZ Machining/Self Made Racing/No. 24 sprint car. “We’ve been battling through some inconsistent runs. We ended up making a lot of changes to this car tonight...having to change motors last night kinda put us behind on being ready for tonight. But I have to thank all of my guys. It’s an honor to be standing in victory lane again at Eldora Speedway...this place is so special to me. The fans, too...I get to see all of these faces and spend time with you guys. I enjoy every minute that I get to race here.”

Lining up second on the A-Main grid, Abreu earned the initial jump, cruising ahead to a comfortable lead over the course of the first seven circuits. Traffic came into play by lap eight, but Abreu’s line around Eldora Speedway’s notoriously thin cushion proved to be no match for the onslaught of slower cars. The main event’s first of two cautions appeared on lap 17 ultimately snapping Abreu’s near-straightaway advantage.

When action returned, it was Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck applying the pressure, working the bottom and center of turns three and four with the intent to gain an edge on Abreu’s Rowdy Energy No. 24. Despite his attempts, Abreu scooted away, only to be halted again by a caution on lap 25.

The ensuing restart would see Parker Price-Miller make a jump from fourth to second, simultaneously switching his focus to Abreu. The Kokomo, Indiana-native was able to show Abreu his nose on a few occasions, but suffice it to say, Eldora’s victory lane stage belonged to Abreu.

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The two-day blockbuster will be headlined with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday; the weekend will ignite with a $10,000 preliminary.

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Fourth | 9176 points (236 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 27, 2021) - Although ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, was unable to attain his fourth and fifth victories of the 2021 Outlaws campaign, the Fargo, North Dakota-native did accomplish some consistency, concluding stops at Eldora Speedway and Lernerville Speedway with top-five outcomes and highlighting each of his recent starts with a third-place finish in Lernerville’s Commonwealth Clash on September 25.

By way of dash result, Schatz started the Commonwealth Clash 30-lapper in the exact same position as he finished, kicking off the program with the fourth-fastest qualifying time, followed by a heat race victory.

“That’s about as fast as I can ever remember going around this place,” Schatz said of Lernerville Speedway on Saturday night. “We were decent on the bottom, but then it just got so quick around the top. We keep improving little by little, though.”

One night prior to his visit to Western Pennsylvania, Schatz made his presence known in Eldora Speedway’s BeFour the Crowns Showdown, capping the evening with a fourth-place score, but not before leading the first 21 circuits. Despite his attempts to outrun the competition, Hanover, Pennsylvania’s Logan Schuchart came to call, getting by Schatz in traffic on lap 22 before escaping to a $10,000 payday. Schatz would eventually fade to fourth.

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their 2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The two-day blockbuster will be headlined with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday; the weekend will ignite with a $10,000 preliminary.

On the hunt for lucky number seven, Donny Schatz is a six-time National Open champion at Williams Grove Speedway, scoring his most recent, also a $75,000 payday, in 2020. The victory was the richest on the 2020 World of Outlaws schedule.
