McIntosh Finishes Third in Summer Nationals Series Points

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (July 31) Donald McIntosh and the Blount Motorsports Team finished 10th at Crossville, Third at 411 and eighth at Tazewell to finish up third in the Southern National Series points race.

At Crossville McIntosh was running third when another flat, the third in the nine race series, sent him to the pits and ultimately a 10th place finish. The next night after testing the wall in hot laps and qualifying he won his heat, started and finished third. In the finale at Tazewell a spark plug issue and a radiator change put the team behind and they ended up with an eight-place finish.

“The car was good in the last three races, but we didn’t get the breaks. You not only have to be on top of your game, but you have to get some breaks too,” said David Bryant. “Out of the nine races we had three flats while running in the top three and one wreck early in another race. So in four of the nine races we didn’t get a break. It is a miracle we were able to finish third in the points.”

“Its frustrating to say the least. The last three races we knew we were out of the points and we were just looking for a win, but the ole monkey was still with us,” said McIntosh. “The Monkey got on our back in the first race with the flat at Wythe and we were never able to get him off for the rest of the series.”

The team will take this weekend off, rest up and get ready for the Lucas Oil North-South 100 at Florence on August 10.

All Star Points Leader Aaron Reutzel Eyes Knoxville 360 Nationals Prize

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (August 1, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team are ready for a pair of big weeks at their home base in Knoxville, Iowa.

And it all begins this week as the current All Star Circuit of Champions points leader and reigning champion swaps out powerplants for this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Nationals atop the ½-mile Knoxville Raceway clay oval at the Marion County Fairgrounds.

 A past Lucas Oil ASCS National champion, Reutzel has made just a pair of 360-ci starts over the past two years as he has focused upon the 410-ci ranks.

“They race entirely different, so I just have to make some adjustments,” Reutzel says of the switch.  Reutzel claimed a fourth-place finish in his most recent 360 Nationals effort in 2017.  Reutzel will take in the Thursday qualifier portion of the 360 Nationals that will set the stage for Saturday’s finale.

Reutzel will then round out the weekend with Sunday’s Capitani Classic before shifting focus to next week’s Knoxville Nationals.

After battling with issues at Eldora two weeks ago, Reutzel raced the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car into the July 20 Kings Royal finale only to suffer a cut tire after being collected in an early tangle.

Already with a half-dozen All Star scores to his credit this season including a July 12 triumph at Utica-Rome Speedway, Reutzel kept the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment team atop the series point charts with three top-fives in four events this past weekend.

The weekend included finishes of fourth at both Wisconsin’s Plymouth Dirt Track on Thursday and then West Burlington, Iowa’s 34 Raceway on Sunday along with a fifth-place finish at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday.  Reutzel had an additional top-five finish in his sights on Friday at Minnesota’s Jackson Motorplex on Friday only to suffer mechanical problems that forced him pitside.

“I just missed the top line in qualifying, then the heat was around the bottom,” Reutzel said of the Thursday card at Plymouth.  Reutzel made the most of it, rallying through the feature field from 14th aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine.  “It was hard to pass but we were able to work up to fourth.”

Reutzel set overall quick time the next night out at Jackson and started the feature sixth only to have the night cut short by mechanical woes.

Moving on to Knoxville, Reutzel timed in second-quickest overall amongst the field of 48 All Star entries and then climbed from tenth to fifth in the feature while also testing the 360 waters with a charge from 19th to ninth.

“We didn’t draw well for the Dash, but we were a lot better in the ‘A’,” Reutzel says.  “We had the wrong gear in the 360 for qualifying, we got that straightened out and drove all the way up to ninth without a caution.”

Reutzel finished out the weekend with a fourth-place showing at 34 Raceway.

“I was leading the Dash and hit a rut and bounced it and spun,” Reutzel recalls.  “After starting seventh in the ‘A’, we were up to third and I hit the same rut and bounced back to fifth.  We were able to get one more spot back.”

It’s all about Iowa for the next two weeks beginning with this week’s Knoxville 360 Nationals.

2019 Quick Stats:  51 races, 8 wins, 21 top-fives, 30 top-tens.

Next Up:  Knoxville 360 Nationals on Thursday and Saturday; Capitani Classic at Knoxville Raceway on Sunday.

Bacon Makes Knoxville 360 Nationals Return after Strong Runner-up Finish in ISW Points

Lonnie Wheatley, WINCHESTER, Ind. (August 1, 2019) – After eight nights of intense Indiana Sprint Week action among the USAC National Sprint Car ranks over the past two weekends, Brady Bacon shifts back to winged action aboard the BBR No. 99 entry over the coming pair of weeks.

And it all begins with this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Nationals at the storied Marion County Fairgrounds in Knoxville, IA.  Bacon is set to take in the Thursday qualifying portion of the event that will set the stage for Saturday night’s finale.

“It will be our first time back at the 360 Nationals since about 2014 I believe,” Bacon commented.  “It will help to get some good laps in before we put the 410 in for Sunday’s Capitani Classic and then next week’s Knoxville Nationals.”

Bacon, who swept July’s USAC-sanctioned Corn Belt Nationals at Knoxville, returns to Iowa after a stellar Indiana Sprint Week that netted a second-place finish in ISW points aboard the Hoffman Racing / Mean Green No. 69 Sprint Car and a climb in USAC National Sprint Car points from sixth to second.

“We made it through one of the toughest weeks of the year and had a first or second-place caliber car each night with the exception of maybe one night,” Bacon explains.  “And at Lawrenceburg, we had to change a rear-end early so that didn’t leave us time to make adjustments the way we needed to.”

Bacon tuned up for Indiana Sprint Week with a makeup of Eldora’s #LetsRaceTwo event on Wednesday, July 17, by racing to a podium finish of third.

“We had a second-place car and just barely tagged the wall, otherwise we would have been right at the front,” Bacon recalls.

Indiana Sprint Week kicked off the next night at Gas City I-69 Speedway where “The Macho Man” timed in second to start the week and then posted a fourth-place finish in the feature.

“We had a car good enough to win,” Bacon says of Gas City.  “The bottom was coming in and I didn’t get down there in time.”

Moving on to Plymouth Speedway on Friday, July 19, Bacon led the field for a half-dozen laps around the midway point before settling for a second consecutive fourth-place finish.

“We got to the lead, then we had that red flag and the tire went away,” Bacon says. “I was just holding on the rest of the way; it was frustrating to know that we had such a good car.”

Moving on to Kokomo Speedway the next night, Bacon narrowly missed out on victory lane as he settled for the first of a pair of runner-up finishes on the week.  And it came after his crew swapped out motors in just 14 minutes after hot laps, quick enough to get Bacon out in time for qualifying.

“That really saved our night, it they don’t get it changed that quick then we miss qualifying and would have been buried,” Bacon explained.

Bacon made it worthwhile with the runner-up showing.

“We were a little too tight at the beginning of the feature,” Bacon said after starting the 30-lapper from the pole position.  “We got going though and I was on the bottom on the last lap and making a run at the lead when he came down, it was all I could do to keep from getting crashed.”

The Sunday, July 21, card at Lawrenceburg Speedway got off to a rough start with a broken set of quick-change gears in heat race action relegating Bacon to “B” Main action.

After swapping out rear ends, Bacon raced to a “B” Main win and then climbed from eighth to claim sixth in the main event.

“My team did a great job fighting through adversity again,” Bacon recalls.  “We got up to fourth at one point and then got too tight on the cushion.  It was still a good night after the way we had to scramble after the heat.”

Following a pair of off nights, action resumed at the Terre Haute Action Track last Wednesday with Bacon earning Hard Chargers by rallying from 14th to capture fourth.

The two-time USAC Sprint Car champion raced to his second runner-up finish of the week the following night at Putnamville’s Lincoln Park Speedway and then had perhaps his best chance of a triumph at Bloomington Speedway on Friday night, only to have the run interrupted by a loosened nozzle line.

After quick repairs, Bacon rallied back through the field to salvage a seventh-place finish.

“We definitely had a car capable of winning,” Bacon laments.

Bacon finished out the week at Haubstadt’s Tri-State Speedway by earning his second Hard Charger award of the week with a rally from 15th to fifth in the ISW finale.

“We have had some struggles at Haubstadt in the past, but we keep making gains each time there and it showed again,” Bacon says.

Overall, for the week, Bacon and the Hoffman Racing team finished among the top-five in six of eight races with no finish lower than seventh.

It’s a trend that has been ongoing since the season-opening events in Florida with top-ten runs in 18 consecutive USAC Sprint Car features since those February events.

Now, Bacon looks to carry that success over to the winged ranks in Knoxville over the next two weeks.

Carney Set for Knoxville 360 Nationals after Pair of Montana Weekends

Lonnie Wheatley, EL PASO, Texas (August 1, 2019) – With Montana in the rearview mirror, John Carney II is set for Knoxville 360 Nationals battle at Knoxville Raceway this weekend aboard the Sander Construction/South Plains Auto Transport/Mesilla Valley Transportation No. J2 Sprint Car.

Currently among the top five in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour points, the El Paso will take in the Thursday night qualifying portion of the event that sets the stage for Saturday’s championship finale.

After a strong qualifying night outing last year, engine woes slowed Carney’s Saturday effort.

“We have always had moments where we have good speed at Knoxille, it’s just a matter of putting the whole thing together,” Carney explains.  “I feel good with where our team is at right now, so I think we can put together a really good weekend.”

Carney takes on Knoxville following an idle weekend that was preceded by a pair of Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour weekends in Montana.

“We had a good run going in that last one at Billings but then got torn up by a lapped car,” Carney says.  “So rather than scramble around to try to run last weekend, I just felt it was best to make sure we had everything in order and know that we’re ready for 360 Nationals.”

Carney’s first Montana adventures began at Gallatin Speedway’s Grizzly Nationals in Belgrade on July 12-13.

Carney earned a fourth-place finish in the Friday night opener before the Saturday portion fell victim to rain.

After racing from seventh to second in his heat race, Carney started the feature in fourth and finished in fourth.

“It went from dry to taking rubber, it got real abrasive really quick,” Carney commented.  “We started fourth and went to searching for the rubber right away.”

Shifting to Bilings’ Big Sky Speedway on July 19-20, Carney climbed from 16th to 11th in the Friday night feature and was battling among the leaders on Saturday until an incident with a lapped car caused race-ending damage.

“We got better as the night went on Friday, then we were going really well on Saturday until getting collected,” Carney explains.

With a weekend off to make final preparations, Carney is ready to contend at this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Nationals.

John Carney Racing is made possible by the support of invaluable partners including Danny Sander Construction, South Plains Auto Transport, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Jackson Compaction, Vado Speedway Park, CSR Garage, Momentum Racing Suspensions, Performance Plus, Performance Motor Coach, Raider Graphix, MSD Ignition, Joe Hunt Magnetos and Bell Helmets.

Quick Stats:  21 Races, 2 Wins, 12 top-fives, 14 top-tens.

Next Up: Knoxville 360 Nationals on Thursday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, IA.

Knoxville 360 Nationals Highlights Big Weekend for Kyle Bellm

Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (August 1, 2019) – Kyle Bellm is gearing up for four big nights of Sprint Car action over a five-day stretch beginning on Friday.

The Nixa, MO, racer takes the wheel of Tony Bartlett’s No. 75au entry for this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Nationals, tackling the Friday portion of the event that sets the stage for Saturday’s championship finale.

Once the 360 Nationals are in the books, Bellm will join forces with the Smith Brothers Racing No. 86 for a $2,000-to-win tilt on Sunday at California, Missouri’s Double X Speedway.

Then it’s back to Iowa and Bartlett’s No. 75au for Tuesday’s Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour card at Oskaloosa’s Southern Iowa Speedway.

“I feel like we haven’t really raced as much as would have liked so far this year, so now I guess we’re making up for it,” Bellm comments.

Bellm has spent a portion of July preparing for this year’s rendition of the Knoxville 360 Nationals, getting in a pair of events aboard Bartlett’s No. 75au with a 16th-place showing on July 13 and then a strong run of 12th against a field of 50 last Saturday night.  A third scheduled night on July 20 fell victim to rain.

“We have learned a lot and got faster each time out,” Bellm says of the pairing with Bartlett.  “The first night out, we really got going in the last few laps of the feature.  We keep making changes each time and the car keeps feeling better and better.”

The recent Knoxville laps have Bellm enthused about this weekend’s Knoxville 360 Nationals.

“I’m probably as excited as I’ve ever been going to 360 Nationals,” Bellm says.  “I usually go in with no laps at all when I’ve gone.  This time, we’ve had a couple of nights to get familiar with things and the car is feeling really good.”

Along with Knoxville and Oskaloosa, Bellm also sees Sunday at Double X as an opportunity to reach victory lane again.  He topped the main event there on June 9.

“It will be a busy few days, we’re looking forward to it,” Bellm sums up.

The Kyle Bellm Racing efforts are made possible with support from marketing partners including Greenworks Nursery, Landscapes Awarded, Christian County Collision Repair, Bybee Lawn Care, PPG Automotive Finishes, Colorvision, Schure Built Suspensions, Schaeffers Racing Oil and Valley Park West Retirement Living.

Quick Stats:  18 Races, 1 win, 5 top-fives, 9 top-tens.

Up Next:

Friday & Saturday – Knoxville 360 Nationals at Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, IA)

Sunday – Double X Speedway (California, MO)

Tuesday – Southern Iowa Speedway (Oskaloosa, IA)

McIntosh Set for Ironman Weekend at Pevely after another POWRi Podium
Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (August 1, 2019) – Cannon McIntosh has been flirting with Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League victory lane all season.
The 16-year-old and the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 team look to seal the deal with a triumph at Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway’s “Ironman Weekend” in Pevely, MO, on Friday and Saturday.
“That track hasn’t liked me, we’ve been there a couple of times but haven’t got to race because of fuel or engine problems,” McIntosh explains.  “I’m racing it this weekend for sure.”
While McIntosh has flirted with POWRi victory lane, he actually parked it in the lane at Grain Valley on July 12 only to have it stripped away at the scales.
“We were 15 pounds light,” McIntosh said afterward.
This past weekend, McIntosh was within one position again with a runner-up finish at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, IL, on Friday night.
“Belle-Clair was good, there was a cushion up against the wall to lean on,” McIntosh explains.  “We just kept having cautions every couple of laps so we never got a real chance to chase Tyler (Thomas) down.”
Luck soured when action shifted to Macon Speedway on Saturday night when the steering column snapped just five laps into the feature.
With four top-fives to his credit in POWRi National Midget League action thus far in 2019, McIntosh has climbed to eighth in series points.  He looks to improve those numbers this weekend.
Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.
Up Next: Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League at Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway (Pevely, MO) on Friday and Saturday.
Keep Track:  Keep track of Cannon McIntosh’s on-track action including schedule and results at
Note:  Cannon and the Dave Mac Motorsports team will have Grady Chandler stickers available for $5.  All proceeds go directly to the Chandler family as he fights to recover.

Jeff Taylor Wins Seventh Annual Ed Jordan Memorial
Batesville Motor Speedway Up Next

Cave City, Arkansas (08/01/19) – Jeff Taylor scored a special win on Saturday night at Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway. Not only did he pocket $2,000 for winning the seventh annual Ed Jordan Memorial, but he also claimed his first win with Shaw Race Cars in his Industrial Electric No. 5 Spur Bar/ Wehrs Machine/ Provence Construction/ Shaw Race Car Modified.

“This Shaw Race Car has been fast every time that it’s hit the track so far, but we just kept falling a little short of Victory Lane,” Taylor noted. “On Saturday night at I-30 Speedway we hit the ground running against a tough field of cars and never looked back on our way to the win.

“I want to thank Scott and Marlene Mosley as well as Kevin Shaw and everybody at Shaw Race Cars for providing me with such an awesome car. There’s some really big shows coming up in the next few months, and I’m confident that we’re going to be a contender in all of them.”

On Friday evening Jeff Taylor traveled to Batesville Motor Speedway (Batesville, Arkansas), where he returned to the driver’s seat of his Shaw Race Car No. 5 IMCA Modified. Earning the eighth-starting position for the A-Main via preliminary events, Taylor gained three spots to register a fifth-place finish behind Brint Hartwick, Ashton Wilkey, Brandon Smith, and Ricky Engles Jr.

The following night at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) Jeff entered the seventh annual Ed Jordan Memorial, which drew a stacked field of 39 entries to the ¼-mile oval. Via his heat race performance, Taylor locked into the fourth-starting spot for the big finale. He went on to charge to the feature win and the $2,000 payday. Tyler Stevens, JT Goodson, Clay Norris, and Drew Armstrong completed the Top-5 finishres.

For more results from these events, please visit and .

As of right now, Jeff plans to enter a single event this weekend. He looks to make the short trip to Batesville Motor Speedway on Friday night to do some testing on his race car as he prepares for upcoming special events.

Jeff Taylor would like to thank all of his sponsors, which include Shaw Race Cars Industrial Electric, Spur Bar, Heat Transfer Solutions, New Vision Graphics,Provence Construction, Wehrs Machine, Fury Energy, Sweet Manufacturing, No Limits Racing, Precision Performance, and Marketing Services.
