Logan Roberson Conquers Crate Nationals at The Gap

Waynesboro, Virginia (11/06/17) – The last minute decision to enter Saturday’s Crate Nationals at Volunteer Speedway, resulted in Logan Roberson picking up his 19th win of the year to the tune of $3,000.

The victory came aboard his Wynbridge Inc. #17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis.

“We were on the fence about going, and then the middle of the week dad said ‘Let’s go get another $3,000 check for the wall’,” Roberson laughs. “I really want to thank Cory Hedgecock because we busted a radiator during the heat race and didn’t have an extra with us. Not many people would let the guy starting next to him on the front row for the feature borrow anything, but he did. I can’t thank him enough for that.”

Logan Roberson traveled to Volunteer Speedway (Bulls Gap, Tennessee) on Saturday night for the inaugural Crate Nationals. With 37 Crate Late Models on hand, Roberson started the night off with a heat race victory earning him the outside-front-row starting position for the feature.

Jumping into the lead on the drop of the green flag, Logan led all 51-laps en route to his 19th win of the season and a $3,000 payday. Cory Hedgecock, Jesse Lowe, Vic Hill, and Drew Kennedy rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

Rodney Sanders Stays Hot in Modified Action; Duel in the Desert Next

Happy, Texas (11/06/17) – Rodney Sanders kept his recent winning streak alive and well over the weekend in his Wichita Tank Racing #20 Swan Energy MB Customs Modified.

His third-event win in as many weeks and his 12th of the season came on Friday night with the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) at 81 Speedway.

Rodney Sanders invaded 81 Speedway (Park City, Kansas) on Friday night for the second-annual Park City Chisholm Trail Showdown presented by Kansas High Performance Racing Auction. With 45 Open Wheel Modifieds on hand for the two-day USMTS event, Sanders jumped one spot in his heat race to capture the 8-lap victory.

Rolling off fourth on the grid for the opening-night feature, Rodney overtook Adam Kates on the 10th lap and held off the field for the remaining 20 circuits to capture his 12th-win of the season and a $2,000 payday. Dereck Ramirez, Stormy Scott, Lance Town, and Zack VanderBeek completed the Top 5 finishers.

"The track was pretty top dominant," Sanders said. "I kind of got held up the first couple of laps but I didn't want to do anything stupid and was just biding our time."

Returning on Saturday night, Sanders passed five cars in his heat to place third. Earning the seventh-starting position for the $3,000-to-win finale, Rodney slipped two positions in the 40-lap affair, logging a ninth-place finish.

Big Game Motorsports and Madsen Earn Two Top Fives at World Finals

Inside Line Promotions - CONCORD, N.C. (Nov. 6, 2017) - Big Game Motorsports driver Kerry Madsen posted his career-best result at The Dirt Track at Charlotte twice last weekend during the Textron Off Road World Finals.

Madsen finished fourth during both World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series main events, giving the Muddy sponsored team 18 top fives in 33 races with the series this season. That ranks seventh best despite only competing in approximately 40 percent of the Outlaws races.

"It would have been fantastic to finish with a win, but I think that shows where the team has been all year," he said. "We've had a lot of top fives with the Outlaws. That's been there all year."

The World Finals began on Thursday when Madsen qualified fifth quickest in his group for Friday's program before he set quick time in his group for Saturday's show.

Madsen finished second in both a heat race and a dash to open Friday and start the A Main on the outside of the second row.

"We probably had a chance to win on Friday," he said. "I tried a little too hard too early and burned the tires off it. We weren't as good after that. You're going for the win and you have to try hard. I should have settled down and ran the bottom or middle in turns three and four. I was trying a little too hard too early."

Madsen took the lead briefly on Lap 10 during a three-car battle for the top spot. He remained in striking distance for the victory during the remainder of the race before ending fourth.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Madsen placing second in a heat race and fourth in a dash to start the main event on the inside of the fourth row.

"We had a car that could have won," he said. "Every time we'd pass a car a yellow would come out. We didn't catch the breaks, but we were battling until the end."

Madsen maneuvered from seventh to fourth place, which marked the Muddy backed team's 34th total top five this season. It was also their 11th straight top-10 finish with the World of Outlaws.

Swindell Set for Cocopah Debut With ASCS National Tour Following World Finals Frustration

Inside Line Promotions - CONCORD, N.C. (Nov. 6, 2017) - Sammy Swindell will make his debut at Cocopah Speedway this weekend during the final event of the season with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Swindell is slated to drive for Terry Steward and Scott Brown Thursday through Saturday at the 3/8-mile oval in Somerton, Ariz., where he missed the lone World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event in 1991 because he was competing in NASCAR and was unable to compete in January 2016 during the Winter Heat Sprint Car Showdown because of a last-minute team decision.

"It's a new car and new team, but I've done that several times this year and most of them we've either won races or had good finishes," Swindell said. "I'm hoping that will continue. Those guys have a good car and have won some races this year. I'm hoping my job will be pretty easy and we can come away with wins."

Swindell has eight victories this season, including during three of his last four starts with the ASCS National Tour.

He is coming off his final event of the season driving for A.G. Rains, which was last weekend during the Textron Off Road World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.

The duo kicked off the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event on Thursday by qualifying 20th quickest in their group for Friday's show and eighth quickest in their group for Saturday's program.

"Not running that car with a 410 that much, the little bit we'd run at Lakeside Speedway and the few laps at Salina Highbanks Speedway, we unloaded the car and it was close to being spot on," he said. "We were just working on the motor side of it. We got that better, but unfortunately we had a parts failure. It ended what could have been a strong weekend."

It was an up and down weekend for the team, which was slowed by a master cylinder issue that had the brakes on during the qualifying session for Friday. The team overcame that problem in the heat race by maneuvering from seventh to third place to earn a spot in the A Main. However, a bleeder problem in the left rear tire hampered the team in the main event.

"Where you plug the bleeder into the wheel got plugged up with some dirt," he said. "It was fine on the long run. On the restart at the end it got us way off. We had over nine pounds of air in the left rear when we came in. It didn't quite work out in what could have been a good finish."

Swindell dropped to an 18th-place result.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Swindell running in the third-and-final lock-in position to the main event throughout his heat race before a mechanical problem on the final lap ended the weekend early.

Nov. 4 - The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C. - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 9 (3); B Main: DNS (4).
