Dale McDowell Picks Up 10th Win of ’23 in Rome Boss
Set to Pursue Second World 100 Crowd at Eldora Speedway this Weekend

MOORESBURG, Tenn. (09/04/23) – Dale McDowell continued his strong 2023 campaign with a $15,000 triumph in Saturday night’s Rome Boss at Eldora Speedway 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.

The Hunt the Front Super Dirt Series victory pushed his 2023 win tally to 10.

“When you’re home, and you got a lot of people here, to win here at home, it is special,” McDowell said in Victory Lane. “Like I said in the interview after the Topless (100 victory), you get to counting down (the time left as a racer), and you don’t know how many more of these deals you got. It was a bizarre and frustrating deal that took me out of the lead on lap 25, but I was determined to get back to the top spot and thankfully we were able to do just that with a couple laps remaining and got the win.

“This team is just amazing, and we are ready to go after another globe at Eldora (Speedway) this coming weekend.”

Returning to action for the first time since recording a $50,000 victory two weeks ago in the COMP Cams Topless 100, Dale McDowell entered his Shane McDowell Racing No. 17m Late Model into battle with the Hunt the Front Super Dirt Series on Saturday evening at Rome Speedway (Rome, Ga.) for the Rome Boss.

With 26 Late Models on the grounds for the 49th running of the annual event, McDowell followed up the fastest qualifying lap with a heat race triumph.

Starting on the pole for the feature, Dale set the pace for the first 25 circuits before a miscommunication with race officials docked him to third in the running order. Staying within striking distance of the leaders, McDowell regained the lead on lap 49 and led the final two circuits to capture the $15,000 top prize.

He notched his 10th win of the 2023 season ahead of Joseph Joiner, Tyler Millwood, Austin Horton, and Dalton Cook.

Full results from the event are available at www.HTFSeries.com .

Dale McDowell and Shane McDowell Racing now turn their attention to the 53rd annual World 100 at Eldora Speedway, which is set to roar to life this Thursday – Saturday. Action opens on Thursday and Friday with twin $12,000-to-win features before seeing Saturday night’s $56,000-to-win finale roar to life.

McDowell won the coveted finale in 2005 and was eighth in last year’s final rundown.

Ricky Thornton Jr. Doubles Down in Portsmouth Victory Lane
53rd Annual World 100 at Eldora Speedway Up Next

MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (09/04/23) – After battling adversity last weekend at Port Royal Speedway, Ricky Thornton Jr. turned his luck back to good over the course of his most three recent nights of racing in his SSI Motorsports / Coltman Farms / Hoker Trucking No. 20RT Dyno One Inc. / Excel Floor Covering / Sub-Surface of Indiana / Longhorn Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

Thornton Jr. claimed the $10,000 prize in Friday night’s unsanctioned Boone Coleman Memorial Gator 50 event at Portsmouth (Ohio) Raceway Park before picking up the $15,000 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) River Days Rumble at the Ohio oval on Saturday evening. He added a fourth-place finish in the 2023 running of the Hillbilly 100 at Tyler County Speedway (Middlebourne, W.Va.) on Sunday evening.

“I love coming to this place, I wished we raced here more often. It’s nice to come here two nights in a row and be on top both nights,” said Thornton Jr. in Victory Lane on Friday night, referring to his $10,000 win in the unsanctioned Boone Coleman Memorial on Friday Night. “My confidence kind of increased as the race went on. I really didn’t get that good of a start. I probably fell back to 13th or so and then I was able to drive back up through there.

“So, it was really good. I don’t know why Brandon (Overton) picked the bottom on that restart, but it worked out for me. I was way better on the restart. I thought that Daulton  (Wilson) pretty much had it and then pushed that one time and that was my shot to get by him and it all worked out. After last week’s heartbreak on Saturday night, this was all a great bounce back weekend for our SSI Motorsports team.”

For an unsanctioned event on Friday leading up to Saturday’s River Days Rumble, Ricky Thornton Jr. took the SSI Motorsports No. 20 RT entry to Portsmouth (Ohio) Raceway Park for the Boone Coleman Memorial Gator 50 opener.

With a heat victory placing him on the front row for the feature, Thornton stole the top spot from Daulton Wilson after the leader suffered a flat tire on lap 43 and paced the final eight circuits to claim his 27th win of the season and a $10,000 payday.

As the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) regulars invaded the Ohio oval on Saturday for the River Days Rumble, Ricky stormed to his second win in as many nights in the feature after a second-place finish in his heat pinned him on the fourth row for the feature. He got around Daulton Wilson on lap 32 and ran off with his 17th LOLMDS victory of the 2023, which came ahead of Devin Moran, Wilson, Brandon Overton, and Hudson O’Neal. The $15,000 prize elevated his weekend earnings to $25,000.

The weekend drew to a close on Sunday evening with the annual Hillbilly 100. Ricky qualified ninth fastest in his group before charging from fifth-to-third in his heat race to lock into the 10th starting spot for the 100-lap, $30,000-to-win finale.

Picking up six spots he crossed the finish line fourth behind Jonathan Davenport, Daulton Wilson, and Brandon Overton.

Ricky has built up a 320-point advantage atop the latest LOLMDS point standings.

www.PortsRaceway.com and www.LucasDirt.com .

The team is now geared up to go after their first “globe” at this week’s 53rd annual World 100 at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio). The weekend includes twin $12,000-to-win programs on Thursday and Friday followed by a $56,000-to-win mega finale on Saturday evening.

Full event details are available at www.EldoraSpeedway.com .

SSI Motorsports and Ricky Thornton Jr. now lead the LOLMDS contingent into battle this weekend in a pair of events in Ohio and West Virginia. The action opens on Saturday at Portsmouth (Ohio) Raceway Park with a $15,000-to-win event before rolling into Tyler County Speedway (Middlebourne, W.V.) on Sunday for the 2023 edition of the Hillbilly Hundred, which posts a $30,000 winner’s check.

Brandon Sheppard Snags $20,000 WoO Mississippi Thunder Winner’s Check
53rd annual World 100 Up Next

NEW BERLIN, Ill. (Sept. 5, 2023) — Brandon Sheppard and Sheppard Riggs Racing claimed another five-figure payday on Friday evening. Their latest mega win came at Wisconsin’s Mississippi Thunder Speedway with his Valvoline / TrueTimber No. B5 WYLD GEAR / Riggs Drilling Solutions / Bilstein / Longhorn Chassis / Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

“We had an absolute hot rod all weekend. On Friday night we got to the lead and held off Bobby (Pierce) late to get the win, and then he flipped the tables on us on Saturday night, and we came up a bit short with a second-place finish. This team is challenging for wins pretty much every night right now, and I’m proud of the games we’ve made since the beginning of this season,” Sheppard said. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to pilot the Kevin Rumley Longhorn Development car this weekend at the World 100. We’ve been close in that event before, and we are going to give it our best shot to get a globe this weekend.”

Kicking off his Labor Day weekend with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Case Late Model Series, Brandon Sheppard trekked to Mississippi Thunder Speedway (Fountain City, Wis.) on Friday evening to pilot his Sheppard Riggs Racing No. B5 Super Late Model for the Milton Hershey School Back to Class Showdown.

In a field of 30 entries, Sheppard followed up the ninth-fastest qualifying lap in his group with a second-place finish in his heat race. Receiving the second-starting position for the feature the redraw, Brandon whizzed past Brian Shirley for the lead on lap 17 and repelled Bobby Pierce’s ferocious charge to secure his second straight World of Outlaws victory and series-best 83rd of his career. He banked the $20,000 payday, his fifth of the season, ahead of Pierce, Ryan Gustin, Kyle Bronson, and Chris Madden.
For the WoO-sanctioned Labor Day Duel on Saturday at Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minn.), Brandon topped the 28-car field in time trials before placing first in his heat race.

Starting the $20,000-to-win finale in fourth, Sheppard challenged pacesetter Bobby Pierce in the closing laps amid lapped-traffic but wasn’t able to get by, marking him second in the final rundown with Dustin Sorensen rounding out the podium.

Brandon is currently tied for second with Chris Madden in the latest World of Outlaws point standings.

Full results from the events are available at www.WoOLMS.com .

Sheppard now turns his attention to the 53rd annual World 100 at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio). On both Thursday and Friday the field will be divided into a pair of $12,000-to-win programs. Meanwhile, Saturday’s coveted finale posts a $56,000 winner’s check along with the coveted globe trophy.

Tyler Stevens Races to First-Career Lucas Oil MLRA Victory
COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Double Header Scheduled Next

SEARCY, Ark. (09/05/23) – Tyler Stevens added to his young Super Late Model resume on Friday evening with his first-career Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA) triumph.

His maiden voyage to Victory Lane with the Missouri based tour came at Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Mo.) aboard his Keith Hammett Trucking & Construction LLC / James A. Rogers Excavating No. 2 Southern Belle / SFP Performance Systems / Longhorn by Wells Motorsports / Mod Co Racing Engine Super Late Model.

A different tire choice than his challengers helped propel Stevens to his first win of the season.

“Man, you have no idea,” exclaimed Stevens in Cedar Creek Beef Jerky Victory Lane of his excitement. “We have had the worst luck this year. New car, new motor, new shocks, new everything and it feels good. We had a little bad luck at the Topless (100) a few weeks ago and I knew we had a heck of a hotrod and we just needed to put it all together.

“I thought I was a sitting duck,” he commented of the early laps of the main event.  “I knew Chad and Mason (Oberkramer) and (Scott) Crigler they all had 40’s on the right rear and I was the only one with a three, so I was worried I was going to wear the right rear out, but man the car was so good I just steered around there and didn’t really have to slide. I was pretty patient there and ran up behind Chad and he was pretty much committed to the bottom and then when he got to that lapped traffic I knew if he didn’t move way up and find that clean area of the racetrack that I thought I could roll by him. They are awesome racers, the MLRA’s the best there is, they’ve proven throughout the the past few weeks they can go run with any of these guys and it feels good to be on top of the podium.”

Tyler Stevens opened the Labor Day weekend with a trip to Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Missouri) for the ninth annual Ron Jenkins Memorial.

He left the track with his first Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA) victory.

The two-day stop on the MLRA calendar began on Friday with 34 competitors in the pits at the pristine 3/8-mile oval. Stevens set the second-quickest time in his group during qualifying, then went on to win his heat race from the pole position.

The driver from Searcy, Arkansas, began the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win main event from the fourth position and made the pass for the lead exiting the second turn on Lap 16.

He masterfully navigated lapped traffic as he led the rest of the way, taking the win over Chad Simpson by a slim 0.328-second margin. Dillon McCowan rounded out the podium, with Scott Crigler finishing fourth and Logan Martin taking the fifth spot.

Steven’s triumph was his first feature victory of 2023.

On Saturday, the second night of the Ron Jenkins Memorial attracted 35 MLRA Late Model drivers seeking the evening’s $11,000 first-place payout. Stevens finished fifth in his heat race, then used a B-Main victory to transfer to the 40-lap feature.

Stevens rolled off 17th, but ran into overheating issues in the race’s early stages and was unable to finish.

He recorded a 23rd-place result in the event finale.

Full results are available at www.mlraracing.com .

The team is now shifting gears and getting ready to roll south for a pair of COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Model events. Action opens with the $5,555-to-win Kenneth Mitchell Memorial at Texarkana (Ark.) 67 Speedway on Friday evening with the $5,000-to-win 51st annual Louisiana Dirt Track Championship at Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, La.) scheduled for Saturday.

Billy Moyer Jr. Bests CCSDS Contingent at Super Bee Speedway
Takes Over COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Point Lead

Batesville, Arkansas (09/05/23) – Billy Moyer Jr. took advantage of Kyle Beard’s bad luck in lapped traffic on Friday night at Super Bee Speedway to collect his third win of the year aboard the Henderson Motorsports No. 21 Mesilla Valley Transportation / Phillips CPA / Pontiac RV / Bilstein / Longhorn Race Car / Clements Racing Engines Super Late Model.

Not only did Moyer Jr. earn his third win of the season over the weekend, but on the heels of his weekend consistency he also propelled himself into the Midwest Sheet Metal point lead for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series as he pursues his second-career crown.

“We had a great weekend with our Henderson Motorsports No. 21. I hated to see Kyle (Beard) have that bad luck with the lap car on Friday night. I’ve been on the other end of that deal before, and we were lucky enough to be in a position to capitalize. We were in the fold at Jackson (Motor Speedway) on Saturday and came away with a fifth, and then at Magnolia (Motor Speedway) on Sunday, the rain from the day before had that place hammer down and aggressive. Thankfully, we came out of there in one piece with a sixth-place finish,” Moyer Jr. said. “We’re down to just six COMP Cams (Super Dirt Series) events remaining, and we’re in the point lead now, but only by a few points, so every event will be key. Thank you as always to everyone, who supports this race team.”

For a three-day swing with the Comp Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS), Billy Moyer Jr. opened his Labor Day weekend on Friday evening at Super Bee Speedway (Chatham, La.) aboard his Henderson Motorsports No. 21 Super Late Model.

With 21 Late Models on the grounds, Moyer Jr. claimed the fast time honors in qualifying with a blistering 15.211-second lap before coming in first in his heat. Taking advantage of an early incident that saw the leader drop to the tail after tangling with a lap car, Billy grabbed the lead on the 10th circuit and dominated the remaining distance of the 40-lapper to record his third win of the season and 21st-career CCSDS triumph.

He banked a $5,000 payday ahead of Jon Mitchell, Jamie Burford, Brian Rickman, and B.J. Robinson.

With the field inflated to 25 cars on Saturday at Jackson Motor Speedway (Byram, Miss.) for the 12th annual All-American 60, Billy outdueled Morgan Bagley in his heat to capture the eight-lap victory. Starting the $6,000-to-win A-Main in third, Moyer Jr. lost two spots in the 60-lap affair to register a fifth-place finish, which came behind Neil Baggett, B.J. Robinson, Bagley, and Brian Rickman.

The three-race weekend drew to a close on Sunday evening at Johnny Stokes’ Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Miss.). Heavy rain from the previous days left the oval heavy and rough. Moyer Jr. persevered to finish second in his heat race before notching a sixth-place finish in the finale in an event that saw 31 entries on hand.

On the heels of Friday's win pair with Saturday and Sunday’s consistency, Billy now leads the latest CCSDS point standings by 25 markers.

Full results from the events are available at www.COMPDirt.com .

Moyer Jr. leads the CCSDS contingent into battle this weekend in a pair of events. The swing opens on Friday at Texarkana (Ark.) 67 Speedway with the $5,555-to-win Kenneth Mitchell Memorial before shifting south to Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, La.) on Saturday for the $5,000-to-win 51st annual Louisiana Dirt Track Championship.

Event details are available at www.67SpeedwayofTexarkana.com and www.BoothillDirt.com .

Billy Moyer Jr. would like to thank all of his sponsors including Phillips CPA Firm, Henderson Motorsports, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Pontiac RV, FK Rod Ends, Tye Twarog Racing, High Tech Special Effects, Clements Racing Engines, ROCKHARD Powder Coating, Keith Hammett Trucking, Dirtlatemodel.com Fragola Systems, Eibach Springs, Imperial Motors, Outerwears, XS Power Batteries, Sunoco Race Fuels, Bert Transmission, New Vision Graphics, FSR Racing Products, Midwest Sheet Metal, Bilstein, Longhorn Chassis, Gears Unlimited, Wiles Driveshafts, Performance Bodies, Hoosier Tire South by Pup, Pulse Innovations, Oakley Deatherage Opticians, Frankland Racing Products, Hooker Harness, Kluhsman Racing Components, Beyea Custom Headers, Strange Engineering, Bell Helmets, Accu-Force Shock Service, and MyRacePass.com Marketing Services.

Ricky Weiss Races to $5,000 Baltes Classic Sunday Night Victory
Eldora Speedway’s 53rd World 100 Up Next

HEADINGLEY, MANITOBA, Canada (09/05/23) – Ricky Weiss’ last-minute decision to enter the 2023 Baltes Classic at Eldora Speedway resulted in his eighth win of the year aboard his Drydene Performance Products No. 7 G-Style Transport / Sniper Chassis / Vic Hill Racing Engine Super Late Model.

Despite leading all 30 laps, Weiss had some nervous moments while deciding where to be on the track while out front.

“This car has been real good but we just haven’t had all the good finishes the past month that we should’ve had. This one is for my family back home. It’s tough here with no (signal) sticks. I couldn’t really see Shawn’s (Gage) signals there,” Weiss said. “I kinda figured we were pretty good. Every time the caution came out we were right into lapped traffic there. Just hats off to everybody that supports this car, and now we are excited for the World 100 week.”

In preparation for the 53rd annual World 100, Ricky Weiss traveled to Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) a week early for the 15th-running of the Baltes Classic.

With 39 Late Models in the pit area, Weiss topped the charts in his qualifying group which placed him on the front-row for the 30-lap main event. Grabbing the lead from the drop of the green flag, Ricky led flag-to-flag to secure the $5,000 payday. He topped Tripp Gerald, Logan Nickerson, Jason Jameson, and Kye Blight who completed the Top-5.

Full results from the weekend are available at www.eldoraspeedway.com .
Weiss now turns his attention to preparations for the 53rd annual World 100 at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on Sept. 7-9. The weekend opens with twin $12,000-to-win programs on Thursday and Friday before seeing a $56,000-to-win finale on Saturday.

Gregg Satterlee ‘Parks It’ at Port Royal in Butch Renninger Memorial
53rd annual World 100 Awaits at Eldora Speedway

INDIANA, Pa. (09/05/23) – Gregg Satterlee continued his 2023 success at Port Royal Speedway with his third win of the year at the ½-mile oval on Saturday evening with his Satterlee Motorsports No. 22 Keyser Manufacturing / Classic Ink / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

The Butch Renninger Memorial rewarded the Pennsylvania driver with a $7,333 winner’s check as his 2023-win tally soared to nine.

“It was a lot of fun out there. You could race all over the racetrack,” said Satterlee in Victory Lane. “We were here last weekend for the big (Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series) race and kinda just struggled all weekend, but we made some changes today and got the car back online where we need it to be. The lapped cars, I would catch ‘em sometimes and they were two-wide so it would really, really slow me down, and I was trying to move around enough that I wasn’t totally killing all my speed. It just worked out.”

Kicking off his Labor Day weekend with the Jay’s Automotive United Late Model Series (ULMS), Gregg Satterlee visited Bedford (Pa.) Speedway on Friday afternoon for the 35th annual Labor Day Classic.

Drawing 37 Late Models for the opener of the doubleheader weekend, Satterlee laid down the fifth-fastest lap in his time trial group before placing second in his heat race. Starting the $12,055-to-win A-Main in seventh, Gregg was an early retiree from the 55-lap affair on lap 13.

Seeking his third straight Butch Renninger Memorial on Saturday, Gregg followed ULMS to Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pa.) for the 20th running of the annual event.

With a heat victory placing him on the front row for the feature, Satterlee flew past pole-starting Trever Feathers on the second circuit and paced the remainder of the 33-lapper to claim the $7,333 payday and his fifth-career victory in the event. He notched his ninth win of the season ahead of Feathers, Rick Eckert, Tyler Emory, and Dan Stone.

Full results from the events are available at www.ULMSRacing.com .

The driver, who is known as “The Truth,” is now locked and loaded for the 53rd annual World 100 at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio). The event takes center stage this Thursday through Saturday at the famed oval. Action opens with the field divided into twin $12,000-to-win programs on Thursday and Friday followed by the $56,000-to-win mega finale on Saturday.

Satterlee’s best-career finish in the World 100 is a runner-up performance in 2017.

Hudson O’Neal and Rocket1 Racing Register Pair of Weekend Top-5 Finishes
53rd annual World 100 in Team’s Crosshairs

SHINNSTON, W.Va. (09/05/23) – Hudson O’Neal piloted the Rocket1 Racing / Valvoline / Seubert Calf Ranches No. 1 Ace Metal Works / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model to a pair of Top-5 finishes in Labor Day weekend Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) competition.

“Another solid weekend for our team. It seems like we’ve been bitten by more than our fair share of random flat tires this year, and we had one get us on Saturday night at Portsmouth (Raceway Park) while running fourth, but we bounced back for a Top-5 finish from the tail of the pack. We added another Top-5 finish on Saturday at Tyler County (Speedway),” O’Neal said. “This whole team is working so hard, and I’m really excited for Eldora (Speedway) and the World 100 this weekend. Thanks so much to all our sponsors and everyone that supports this program.”

Hudson O’Neal entered the Rocket1 Racing / Seubert Calf Ranches No. 1 Super Late Model into battle with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) on Saturday evening at Portsmouth (Ohio) Raceway Park for the River Days Rumble.

Starting his outing with the fastest qualifying lap in his 16-car group, O’Neal soared into the main event with a convincing heat race win.

Chasing a $15,000 payday in the feature, Hudson rebounded with a fifth-place run in the 50-lapper after a flat tire sidelined him during a lap-20 caution while running fourth.

For the 55th annual Hillbilly Hundred on Sunday at Tyler County Speedway (Middlebourne, W. Va.), Hudson’s second-place showing in his heat race positioned him on the third row for the $30,000-to-win A-Main.

Moving forward one spot in the 100-lap affair, O’Neal rolled to a fifth-place finish, which came behind Jonathan Davenport, Daulton Wilson, Brandon Overton, and Ricky Thornton Jr.
Hudson remains second in the latest LOLMDS points.
Full results from the events are available at www.LucasDirt.com .

The Rocket1 Racing team now has all hands on deck preparing for the upcoming weekend’s World 100 at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio). The 53rd running of the crown jewel will see the field split into a pair of $12,000-to-win programs on Thursday and Friday, while Saturday’s finale is headlined by a $56,000-to-win finale.

Hudson’s best finish in the World 100 is a fourth in 2021.
