Returns to USMTS Action this Week

HAPPY, Tex. (06/02/20) – Rodney Sanders increased his win tally this season to eight on Saturday night with a United States Racing Association (USRA) Modified victory at Central Missouri Speedway (Warrensburg, Mo.).

Sanders also drove his Wichita Tank Racing No. 20 Kenny’s Tile/ ARMI Contractors/ MB Customs/ Hatfield Racing Engine Modified to podium finishes at Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kans.) and Humboldt (Kans.) Speedway.

“What a great weekend of racing,” Sanders noted. “We’ve had a really good car all year and it continued to show over the weekend with three podium finishes. I’m looking forward to carrying that momentum into this week’s USMTS events. A very special thanks goes out to everyone who supports this team.” 

Rodney Sanders invaded Lakeside Speedway on Friday evening. Passing three cars in his heat race, Sanders posted a third-place finish, which positioned him fifth on the starting grid for the opening night feature. Improving three spots in the 20-lap affair, Rodney notched a runner-up finish behind Darron Fuqua with Tyler Hibner, Rodney Schweizer, and Austin Siebert rounding out the Top-5.

The following night at Central Missouri Speedway, Rodney secured his spot into the main event with an 8-lap heat race victory. After taking command of the lead early, Sanders held off the field following a late race restart on lap 20 to register his eighth win of the season. Tim Karrick, Dean Wille, Terry Schultz, and Dustin Hodges trailed him to the checkers in the 25-lap affair.

On Sunday afternoon at Humboldt Speedway, Sanders locked his spot into the 20-lap feature with a third-place finish in his heat. Jumping up two positions, Rodney scored a third place finish behind Tanner Mullens and Tyler Wolff with Paden Phillips and Jared Russell completing the Top-5 finishers.

Mallett Scores Three Podium Finishes During Start to 15th Annual USCS Sprint Speedweek

Inside Line Promotions - LEXINGTON, Tenn. (June 2, 2020) - Jordon Mallett earned his first three podium finishes of the season last weekend, highlighted by a second-place run on Friday at Old No. 1 Speedway in Harrisburg, Ark.

Mallett also picked up a pair of third-place results on Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., and on Sunday at Lexington 104 Speedway during the start of the 15th annual USCS Sprint Speedweek.

"It's good to be on the podium every night and I can't complain by any means," he said. "It's a little disappointing to be that consistent and not leave with a win, but we kept learning and we're getting better."

Mallett kicked off the weekend on Friday in his home state of Arkansas by starting sixth in a heat race and advancing four positions to finish second. Following a random draw inversion, Mallett garnered the pole position for the night's feature.

In the feature, Mallett took the initial lead at the drop of the green flag and led the first handful of laps before falling to second. In a feature that was littered with multiple cautions, Mallett got his final opportunity to make a move for the lead with three laps to go, but he wasn't able to materialize a race-winning pass and held on for second - his best finish of the season.

"I felt like we were pretty good for the first handful of laps, but I knew it would be tough to hold onto the lead," he said. "The track was really slick and we don't really have a great setup yet for that. We were in the ballpark, but ultimately probably a second-place car."

Mallett headed 52 miles south to Riverside International Speedway on Saturday. He placed fifth in the dash and won a heat race before lining up seventh in the A Main.

Mallett once again showed his muscle as he gained four positions to finish third and land on the podium for the second consecutive night. The top-five performance was the second of the season for the Greenbrier, Ark., native.

"I always look forward to going to Riverside as it's a track I'm really familiar with," he said. "We're still learning about these cars and the track was really rough. If we had got some clean air and got ourselves up front we had a car capable of winning."

For the conclusion of the weekend Mallett ventured to Lexington 104 Speedway, where he placed third in a dash and passed four cars to finish third in a heat race.

Mallett also capped the night with a third-place outing in the A Main. The result was the third top five of the weekend for Mallett and made him the only driver of the weekend to finish on the podium all three nights.

"Lexington is a track that usually comes down to the heat race and starting position," he said. "We got a good starting position, but really we just maintained and stayed steady and that's why we finished where we did."

Mallett is currently weighing his options for this coming weekend and he is not sure where or when his next race will occur. However, he is excited about where his program is headed and believes that once the ASCS National Tour gets back going his team will be well prepared.

"Any time we can get track time in a non-points event off the Tour it allows us to try different things and fill up the notebook," he said. "We keep learning things and we obviously have speed. If we run we will keep plugging away at it and if we do not, I think we have a nice baseline for when the tour starts back up to be competitive."

Hagar Produces First Victory of Season While Driving for Skinner

Inside Line Promotions - LEXINGTON, Tenn. (June 2, 2020) - Derek Hagar made the most of an opportunity to pilot a sprint car owned by life-long friend Marshall Skinner.

"I think it was a beer-driven idea that turned out good," Hagar said while chuckling. "We were BS-ing on Memorial Day and he came up with it. About Thursday he said, 'You sure you want to drive my car?' I was like, 'Hell yeah if you're serious about it.' So we slapped it together."

The team ventured to Lexington 104 Speedway on Sunday for a USCS Series Speedweek event. Hagar, who hadn't raced a sprint car since February, kicked off the action by hustling from eighth to third place in a heat race.

"I let Marshall's boys draw for me and they brought me a high number back," he said. "It worked out good for us. The sea parted on the start. I passed three cars going into turn one. Later in the race I worked my way to third. That put us second in points and Mark (Smith) drew a zero for the inversion."

Hagar lined up on the outside of the front row next to Mark Smith, who won nine of the 11 previous USCS Series races this season.

"We really didn't have anything for Mark, but an unfortunate circumstance for him gave us the lead as he got caught up with a lapped car," Hagar said.

Hagar inherited the lead and maintained the top spot for the final third of the race to garner his first triumph of the season. It was his second victory in his last four races at the track dating back to 2017.

Hagar plans to drive for Britt Motorsports this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., during an ASCS Mid-South Region event.
