Rodney Sanders Doubles Down in USMTS Weekend Action
USMTS Labor Day Weekend Tripleheader Up Next

HAPPY, Tex. (08/25/20) –  On Friday Rodney Sanders raced to the 105th United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) triumph of his career with a win at Lake Ozark Speedway.

The next night at Salina Highbanks Speedway, the driver of the Wichita Tank Racing No. 20 Kenny’s Tile/ ARMI Contractors/ MB Customs/ Hatfield Racing Engine Modified was at it again with his second-straight victory.

The weekend victories pushed Sanders’ 2020-win tally to 16.

On Thursday Sanders kicked off the weekend at Dallas County Speedway in Urbana, Mo. for the second annual Bullring Bash. In a field of 29 cars, Sanders recorded a fourth-place finish in his heat race, transferring him into the B-Main for another shot at the opening night feature.

Gaining one spot to take home the 10-lap victory, Rodney earned the 13th-starting position for the A-Main. Breaking into the Top-5, Sanders marched forward nine spots to register a fourth-place finish behind Tony Jackson Jr., Joe Duvall, and Terry Phillips with Jason Hughes coming in fifth.

The following night at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. for the Battle at the Beach, Rodney secured his spot into the main event with a runner-up finish in his heat behind Dereck Ramirez.

Overtaking Ramirez on the fifth lap, Sanders cruised to his 15th win of the season over Ramirez, Tyler Wolff, Jason Hughes, and Tanner Mullens. Taking the checkers 3.502 seconds ahead of Ramirez, Sanders pocketed $3,000.

For the 8th Annual ARMI Salute to our Veterans on Saturday evening at Salina Highbanks Speedway in Pryor Creek, Okla., Sanders passed four cars in his heat race to place second behind Jason Hughes.

Earning the third-starting position for the A-Main, Rodney overtook polesitter Jared Russell for the lead on the fifth lap and paced the field for the next 27 circuits on the bottom groove.

With Tyler Wolff blasting past for the lead on the high-side after a caution, Sanders remained consistent on the bottom as Wolff began battling the cushion in the closing laps.

Sneaking back by Wolff on the white flag, Rodney rolled to his second-straight win over Wolff, Terry Phillips, Jake O’Neil, and Tanner Mullens. Collecting a $3,000 prize, Rodney Sanders tailed his 16th win of 2020.

“There was little bit of moisture on the bottom but it was kind of slimy if you got too low,” Sanders revealed in victory lane. “I felt like if I hit my marks I was good down there, but you had to be so slow. We lapped a car and I felt better in the middle and then Tyler came flying by me.

“Him and his dad help me a lot. If I couldn't have won this deal I was hoping it’d be him.”

The Wolff family’s Arkansas Myriad, Inc. (ARMI) is a sponsor on Sanders’s MBC Customs ride—as well as many other competitors—and picked up the tab to give free admission to veterans and active military attending Saturday night’s 8th Annual ARMI Salute to our Veterans

McIntosh Scores $5,000 Southern All-Star Victory
Fall Nationals at Smoky Mountain Next

DAWSONVILLE, Ga. (08/25/20) – Donald McIntosh took his Blount Motorsports No. 7m Ole Ben Franklin Motors/ Stowers Cat/ Rocket Chassis/ Vic Hill Racing Engine Super Late Model to Victory Lane for the third time this season Saturday.

His most recent triumph came at I-75 Raceway in Sweetwater, Tenn. where topped the 28-car field to claim a $5,000 Southern All-Star Racing Series payday.

After sitting out a nearly two-hour rain delay, McIntosh topped the speed charts in Group B of time trials to lock his spot into the 50-lap main event. Inheriting the lead on lap 18 after the leader went up in smoke, Donald ran away with his third win of the season over David Webb, Tyler Millwood, Jason Hiett, and Jason Manley.

“A lot of luck,” McIntosh said of the key to his performance. “I’ll be honest with you, before we started the feature, after that hot-lap session, we parked up there and it wouldn’t even back up. We thought the ring-and-pinion was so sharp it wouldn’t back, so I figured we’d run three laps. (Crew Chief) David (Bryant) said, ‘Ah, no, you’ll get 10 laps in.’ I was just waiting for it to break. Evidently it was just a ring gear bolt backed out or something.”

McIntosh will enjoy a weekend off before returning to the driver’s seat on Saturday, Sept. 5 at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tenn. The $5,000-to-win, Rockin’ with the Stars Hall of Fame 100, kicks off the Schaeffer’s Fall Nationals Series.

Tony Jackson Jr. Edges Duvall in USMTS Thriller
Repeats in Russ Wallace Memorial

LEBANON, Mo. (08/25/20) Tony Jackson Jr. finally shook the monkey off his back last week, and he done so in triumphant fashion. The Missouri driver went to Victory Lane at two different venues in two separate divisions.

Jackson put his Willard Quarries No. 56 ATK Properties/ Swift Springs/ Hughes Racing Chassis Modified in Victory Lane Thursday at Dallas County Speedway. He followed that with a triumph at Tri-City Speedway in his Merrill Self Storage No. J65 Willard Quarries/ Hassett Truck Body Repair/ Barry Wright Icon Race Car/ Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model on Friday.

Tony Jackson Jr. returned to the seat of his Modified on Thursday evening at Dallas County Speedway (Urbana, Mo.) for the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) sanctioned Bullring Bash.

Charging forward four spots in his heat race to finish second behind Joe Duvall, Tony earned the fifth-starting position for the opening night feature. After contact with an infield yuke tire in the early going slowed his march toward the front, Jackson began closing in on race-long leader Joe Duvall late as he worked through lapped-traffic.

Powering past Duvall on the final lap, Tony soared to his first career USMTS victory over Duvall, Terry Phillips, Rodney Sanders, and Jason Hughes. He pocketed a $2,500 payday for his first win of the season.

“Oh man, I’ve won a lot of races but never won a USMTS race,” Jackson told the capacity crowd after the win. “Man, what a racy racetrack.

“I had a good battle with (Terry) Phillips there and then I ended up hitting a yuke tire about halfway through or something and it kind of got me messed up, then Joe got bundled up there in lapped traffic and he hit a yuke tire there and that’s essentially what let me get by him there.”

The following night at Tri-City Speedway (Granite City, Ill.) behind the wheel of the Willard Quarries No. J65 Late Model for the Russ Wallace Memorial, Jackson laid down the fastest lap overall in time trials before picking up a heat race victory.

Outrunning fellow front-row starter Daryn Klein in the feature, Tony rolled to his second win in as many nights over Klein, Mark Voigt, Matt Bailey, and Billy Laycock. Tallying his second win of the season, Jackson earned $2,000.

“It’s great to finally be able to put a whole night together with our Barry Wright Icon powered by Cornett,” Jackson noted. “Hopefully we’ve got this monkey off our back and finish out the season strong.”

Full results from these events are available at and .

Tentatively, a Labor Day Weekend doubleheader with the Lucas Oil MLRA is next on the docket for Tony Jackson Jr. The weekend includes a trip to Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. on Saturday, Sept. 5, followed by a stop a Quincy Raceway in Quincy, Ill. on Sunday, Sept. 6. Both events will pay $5,000 to the win.

West Jr. Ascends to Third in ASCS Mid-South Region Championship Standings

Inside Line Promotions - MONETT, Mo. (Aug. 25, 2020) - Jeffrey West Jr. has climbed to third in the ASCS Mid-South Region championship standings during his first season behind the wheel of a sprint car.

"I wouldn't have thought that I'd be in this position at the beginning of the year," he said. "It's exceeding our expectations. This year we're still focusing on learning and getting things figured out."

A race last Saturday provided the most recent opportunity to grow as West Jr. invaded Monett Motor Speedway for the first time.

"We definitely struggled a good bit," he said. "It was a new track and I had never been on a 3/8 mile before. As far as my driving went I felt like I adapted to the track fairly quickly. I was pretty comfortable on it. The main thing was setup-wise and knowing what to do on a big track like that when it slicks off."

West Jr. placed seventh in a heat race, which lined him up on the outside of the 10th row for the A Main.

"For the first five or 10 laps the car was really hooked up," he said. "I got up to ninth place at one point on the fourth or fifth lap. Then I got shuffled back. The track slicked off and the car handling changed. We ran around 15th for the last half of the race."

West Jr. finished 15th, which was his fourth top 15 of the season.

"The main thing is we have a better idea of where to start on a 3/8-mile track," he said. "We had literally never experienced that before. Something we thought would work ended up not working. We weren't fast in the feature, but we were way better than we were in hot laps and the heat race. There were some positives to take away from it."

The next ASCS Mid-South Region race is this Saturday at I-30 Speedway. West Jr. earned his best result at the track with a 14th-place outing during his most recent visit.


Aug. 22 - Monett Motor Speedway in Monett, Mo. - Heat race: 7 (3); Feature: 15 (20).


6 races, 0 wins, 0 top fives, 2 top 10s, 4 top 15s, 6 top 20s


Saturday at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., with the ASCS Mid-South Region



SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT - Haley's Electric

"I'm happy to have Haley's Electric on board," West Jr. said. "They provide one of the best commercial and residential services in the Mid-South."

West Jr. would like to thank Mainline Safety and Supply, Inc., Flashe Graphics, Rick's Powder Coating and Jeff and Kim West for their continued support.
