Mike Marlar Masters U.S. 36 Raceway for WoO $10,000 Triumph
Adds New Track Record at 81 Speedway to Weekend Accolades
WINFIELD, Tenn. (10/25/22) – Mike Marlar masterfully navigated lapped traffic to score the $10,000 World of Outlaws (WoO) Case Late Model Series victory on Sunday evening at Missouri’s U.S. 36 Raceway aboard his Delk Equipment Sales / Tri-Rivers Enterprises No. 157 Can-Am Auto Salvage / Longhorn Chassis / Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.
Additionally, Marlar finished fourth in the WoO weekend opener on Friday evening at Humboldt Speedway and added a new track record on Saturday night at 81 Speedway.
“I enjoyed our weekend in Kansas and Missouri. We got behind early at Humboldt (Speedway) on Friday night, but we had a great car in the feature and passed 13 cars to finish fourth. We hit the ground running with a new track record and a heat race win at 81 Speedway on Saturday. We were fast in the feature, but a mechanical failure took away any chance at a win,” Marlar said. “On Sunday night we were at the home track of one of our sponsors, Mark and Kim Dotson with Tri-Rivers Enterprises, and Mark gave me some great pointers on how to get around that place. We caught Chase (Junghans) in lapped traffic and got to the lead and got the win.
“It was a fun time all three nights, and I look forward to going back out that way next year to race. Thanks as always to everyone who supports our team.”
Mike Marlar returned to the road on Friday afternoon with a visit to Humboldt (Kan.) Speedway for a tripleheader weekend with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Case Late Model Series.
In a field of 38 cars, Mike followed up a fifth-place showing in his heat race with a consolation victory. Starting the $10,000-to-win A-Main in 17th, Marlar marched through the field 13 spots in the 40-lap affair to register an impressive fourth-place finish. He trailed Chase Junghans, Dennis Erb Jr., and Max Blair to the checkers with Gordy Gundaker coming in fifth.
For the second round of the Rick Eshelman Kansas Tribute Tour on Saturday at 81 Speedway (Park City, Kan.), Marlar topped the 34-car field in time trials before placing first in his heat race.
Receiving the fourth-starting position for the feature via the redraw, Mike lost an oil pump belt on lap 23 while running fourth that sidelined him for the remainder of the 40-lapper.
On Sunday afternoon at U.S. 36 Raceway (Osborn, Mo.), after the crew swapped motors, Mike secured his spot into the finale with an eight-lap heat race victory.
Overtaking early pacesetter Chase Junghans on lap 26 amid lapped traffic, Marlar dominated the remaining 14 circuits to secure his 13th win of the season and 12th- career World of Outlaws triumph.
He collected a $10,000 prize ahead of Chase Junghans, Tyler Bruening, Dennis Erb Jr., and Ryan Gustin.
Full results from the weekend are available at www.WoOLMS.com .
The team is currently unsure if they will race this week or not. As details are finalized they will be posted on the team’s cyber home at www.MikeMarlar.com .

“It was a great way to start the weekend against a loaded field of over 80 entries,” Timms said in regards to the opening round triumph. “Friday didn’t go as well as we would’ve liked in heat race action, but we rallied to win the B-Main from seventh. In the feature we were only able to get to 18th.
“Entering Saturday we were fifth overall in points, but with the inverts we lined up eighth for our heat race. I managed to get to fifth which got us into the feature, but again we were left starting deep in the field. I passed five cars to finish 11th. Not the run we wanted on Saturday, but it was still a lot of fun at a cool racetrack with a ton of amazing fans.”
Embarking on Trophy Cup 28 presented by Rudeen Racing, Ryan Timms invaded Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway (Tulare, Cali.) on Thursday afternoon to kick off the event spanning three days.
Drawing a stout field of 86 360 Sprinters, Ryan rebounded in his heat with a last-lap victory after qualifying 16th-fastest in his time trial group. Holding off the stout field in the feature after a caution with six laps remaining, Timms led flag-to-flag in the 30-lapper to capture his 12th win of the season and a $4,000 payday.
He took the checkers ahead of Tyler Courtney, Kyle Hirst, Shane Golobic, and Carson Macedo.
For Friday’s prelim, Timms followed up a fifth-place finish in his heat with an impressive seventh-to-first in his B-Main. Locked into the 22nd-starting position for the feature, Ryan gained four spots to place 18th.
Sitting in fifth overall in points heading into Saturday’s finale, Ryan secured his spot into the Trophy Cup 28 with a fifth-place performance in his heat. Starting on the eighth row, Timms raced forward five spots in the 50-lap affair to finish 11th.
Ryan finished eighth in the final Trophy Cup 28 point standings.

Hagar Seeking Season-Ending Victory Saturday at Riverside International Speedway
Inside Line Promotions – MARION, Ark. (Oct. 25, 2022) – Derek Hagar will wrap up the 2022 season this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.
Hagar enters the race with 13 victories this year, including five at the dirt track in West Memphis, Ark.
“Hopefully we can close it out with another win and go into the offseason strong,” he said. “We’ve had some good success at West Memphis and I’m looking forward to getting back there one last time this season.”
Hagar’s 13 triumphs are the most he’s recorded in a single season since 2016 when he posted 16 victories for the second time in three years. After the 16-win seasons in 2016 and 2014, this year’s win total ranks third best.
A big goal is up for grabs this Saturday as Hagar is aiming to end the season with a victory for the first time in his career. He’s won the opening round of the Flip Flop 50 multiple times during the final race night of a season, but has yet to take the checkered flag first in his final A Main.
“It’d be a good boost for us to get things ready for next season,” he said. “We’ve started out years with wins so it’d be nice to finish with a win. I think it’d get us more hyped up for 2023.”
SEASON STATS –
39 races, 13 wins, 21 top fives, 30 top 10s, 30 top 15s, 32 top 20s

Devin Moran Doubles Down in 2023; Pairing will Relocate Tennessee Team to Ohio
(Heath Lawson Photography)
(DRESDEN, OHIO) Devin Moran and Double Down Motorsports (DDM) team owner Roger Sellers have confirmed today that the two have paired for the upcoming 2023 racing season, which puts the twenty-eight-year-old driver in the seat of the coveted ride left vacant by a departing Hudson O’Neal. Both parties enjoyed a successful 2022 campaign, as Devin (with Tye Twarog Racing) reached victory lane on ten occasions, while Double Down Motorsports accumulated eight feature wins with O’Neal and finished fourth in the final version of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point standings.
The newly-formed pairing plans to compete full-time on the national tour in 2023 in hopes of capturing the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Championship. Devin, who will be making his return to full-time racing with the series for the first time since 2020, will be armed with a fleet of new Longhorn Chassis with full factory support from both the Trinity, North Carolina manufacturer and Bilstein Shocks. The team will also be relocating and racing out of the shop of Devin’s Hall of Famer father Donnie Moran in Dresden, Ohio.
“I think it’s a great match between the two of us and I’m really excited for a great 2023 season and beyond,” quoted team owner Roger Sellers today. “When Hudson (O’Neal) decided to pursue another opportunity I thought about stepping away from car ownership, but I took my time and didn’t let emotions get the better of me. I have a lot invested in this sport and my passion to win big races and a Lucas Championship is greater than ever. So when I decided to keep going, we talked to a lot of our sponsors and product people and their input helped guide our decision. We had some great prospects that expressed their interest in driving for us, but at the end of the day, Devin is a great fit and checked all of the boxes!”
“Devin brings a lot to the table - he’s great with sponsors and on social media and everyone can see what kind of talent he possesses behind the wheel,” Sellers went on to say. “He comes from a great family with a rich racing background and he’ll have the full support from me and my family. I know he’s excited about racing out of his dad’s shop in Ohio. When I was thinking about stepping away, Earl Pearson, Jr. had actually contacted me about leasing our race shop in Morristown, Tennessee to his Papich Racing team, so it all worked out perfectly that we could be accommodating to Devin and relocate our stuff to Dresden and help Earl out at the same time.”
For Devin, this was an opportunity that he simply couldn’t pass up. “Like I said last week when the announcement was made that me and Tye (Twarog) were going our separate ways, I can’t thank him enough for furthering my racing career and getting me to this point,” exclaimed Moran via telephone. “This is a situation (with Double Down Motorsports) that I’ve been looking for my entire career really. To have the resources and equipment that Roger has in his arsenal and to be able to race out of dad’s shop is really just a dream come true. I’m excited to be in Longhorn Chassis with Bilstein Shocks again next year and I think we are putting together all of the pieces to make a serious national championship run next season!”
Devin, who will most likely return to his roots and pilot a #99m entry in 2023, went on to say, “There is still a lot we have to figure out before next year including trying to find a crew chief willing to relocate to Ohio. We have some great crew help already on board including my brother Wylie, but he will not be coming on full-time. He has a good thing going with his own business right now, so we’ll see how much he can get away from it. I’m just super excited to drive for Roger - he’s such an awesome guy - and I can’t wait until next year begins!”
A key piece to the puzzle to bring Moran to Double Down Motorsports was the involvement of Longhorn Chassis and Bilstein Shocks. “I am absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Devin Moran and very excited to work with Mr. Sellars,” exclaimed Longhorn Chassis Managing Partner Steve Arpin this afternoon. “Double Down Motorsports is one of the top Dirt Late Model teams in the country and for them to put their faith in our Longhorn cars just makes us want to work even harder for them. Devin and the team will give us one more gun in the fight, you might say, to win big races and championships. We will be working very closely with DDM to provide first class technical support led by Kevin Rumley and Matt Langston, while also gathering critical data and information from the team that will help all of our Longhorn Chassis customers.”
Devin Moran and Double Down Motorsports (DDM) will kick off their 2023 racing season during “Speedweeks” in Georgia and Florida during the months of January and February. The team will concentrate mostly on Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series events, while also entering a majority of the crown jewel races across the country. DDM will also continue to field a car for Roger’s son-in-law Robby Moses in Tennessee, who will once again compete in a limited slate of events regionally.
As soon as series and tracks release their schedules this off-season, a full tentative schedule for the team will be posted online at both www.DevinMoranRacing.com and www.DoubleDownMotorsports.net. You can also connect with Devin across social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @DevinMoran99. Go shopping 24 hours a day / 7 days a week at www.ShopDevinMoran.com.
