Sheppard Sweeps WoO Wisconsin Doubleheader

Northern Swing Continues This Week

SHINNSTON, W.Va. (07/13/20) – Brandon Sheppard and Rocket1 Racing continued their winning ways over the weekend, sweeping the World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series doubleheader in Wisconsin.

Adding to his trail of accomplishments, Sheppard is now the winningest World of Outlaws driver in the state of Wisconsin following a pair of weekend triumphs in the Valvoline No. 1 Seubert Calf Ranches/ Durham Racing Engines-powered Rocket Chassis House Car.

“I’ve got a little theory: Wherever corn grows good, we’re gonna have a good race,” Sheppard joked on his Wisconsin’s success. “But seriously, we all really look forward to coming up here. This trip north to Wisconsin and then our Western swing, that’s my favorite part of the whole year. We usually get around these tracks really good and they aren’t scared to work on them and give us a good racey place.”

Racing at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, Wis. on Friday night, Sheppard led the final 18 laps of a wild 50-lapper for his seventh WoO win of the season. After qualifying third in his group and finishing second in his heat race, Sheppard drew the fifth starting position for $10,000-to-win main event.

Sheppard marched forward to assume the lead on the 33rd circuit following a fierce battle with Jason Rauen. Surviving a late-race restart with eight laps remaining, Brandon held off Darrell Lanigan and Nick Anvelink in the closing laps for the win. Closing out the Top-5 was Ricky Weiss and Rodney Sanders. 

“We’ve got a great crowd here and had a great track to race on, it doesn’t get much better than this,” Sheppard said in Victory Lane. “I was little worried in the heats when it was bottom dominant, but the track crew stayed right with it and gave us a really racey track for the feature. That was a lot of fun!”

Shifting to Plymouth (Wis.) Dirt Track on Saturday, Sheppard earned a fifth spot on the starting grid via the redraw, after setting QuickTime in his group and winning his heat race.

Cade Dillard took the lead on the opening circuit of the 50-lap affair with Sheppard sliding into second. Sheppard quickly went to work on Dillard, mounting several challenges for the top spot. Dillard was able to keep Sheppard at bay until contact with a lapped car resulted in in a flat left front tire on lap 11, relinquishing the top spot to Sheppard.

“I was pressuring him pretty hard there and he knew he had to go,” Sheppard said of challenging Dillard. “There was a lane for a minute, but then Larson went all the way out to the wall when Cade was trying to stick it in there and he got that flat left front. I hated to see that. Cade and I race so well together; he’s a clean racer and we had a good race going there. I was hanging right with him on the bottom over in turns one and two, I think we could’ve had a great race together.”

From there, Sheppard went unchallenged over the final 39 laps en route to the $10,000 payday, completing a sweep of this night’s activities. Finishing 3.318 seconds behind Sheppard was Jimmy Mars, with Chase Junghans, Ricky Weiss, and Scott Bloomquist rounding out the Top-5. 

The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series resumes their Northern Swing on Tuesday night with an appearance at Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wis. From there, the tour will take two nights off before a doubleheader in North Dakota. River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. will host the WoO Late Models on Friday night followed by Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, N.D. on Saturday. All three events will pay $10,000-to-win to the winner.

Tyler Erb Wins Summer Nationals Opener at Brownstown
Busy Schedule Ahead for Best Performance Motorsports

ST. MARYS, Ohio (07/13/20) –  Kicking off a busy stretch of events for the Best Performance Motorsports team, Tyler Erb picked up the win in Wednesday’s DIRTcar Summer Nationals opener at Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway.

Erb drove the Industrial Resourcing Group No. 1 Best Performance Motorsports/ Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model to a $5,000 triumph.

Erb was one of 22 DIRTcar Late Models on hand at Brownstown Speedway for the Hoosier Dirt Classic. After setting the fast time in qualifying with a blistering lap of 13.568 seconds, Erb picked up a 10-lap heat race victory, which positioned him on the pole for the main event.

With Bobby Pierce jumping into the lead and setting the pace early, Tyler began closing in on the leader after a caution flew on lap 31. Overtaking Pierce on lap 36, Erb went on to pick up his fourth win of the season over Pierce, Mike Marlar, Allen Weisser, and Kyle Bronson.

“I knew I wasn’t very good running around the top like Bobby was, so I was better off to kind of float in the middle,” Erb said. “I finally figured out how to (exit) turn four with a little bit of a speed. … I was waiting for Bobby to move down. I honestly thought he might try to block.

“I think he just had his momentum built up so much there he couldn’t do it, and I just kept working him and working him. I didn’t see him (exiting turn) two, I believe, and I got pretty clear and I sailed her pretty hard into (turns) three and four and never saw him.”

Full results from the event can be found at .

Returning to action on Friday, the team headed to Florence Speedway (Union, Ky.) for the two-day General Tire Summer Sizzler Nationals. Drawing 33 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) entries for the two-day event, Tyler edged his way into the $12,000-to-win A-Main with the fourth and final transfer spot in his heat race. Rolling off 13th the grid, Erb fell seven spots in the 50-lapper to place 20th.

Saturday night’s finale at Florence Speedway fell victim to Mother Nature.

Tyler is currently fourth in the latest LOLMDS championship standings. Full results from these events are available at .

Erb returns to the LOLMDS tour tonight (Monday, July 13) at 300 Raceway in Farley, Iowa. From there, the team will enter a string of DIRTcar Summer Nationals events throughout the week before ending the week with a trio of LOLMDS events. For a complete schedule, please visit .

Chase Junghans Ends Two-Race Weekend with Podium Finish
Three World of Outlaws Races on This Week’s Schedule

Manhattan, Kansas (07/13/20) – Chase Junghans  took his Shop Quik Convenience Stores No. 18 Bozard Ford Lincoln/XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model into battle in Wisconsin over the weekend in a pair of World of Outlaws (WoO) Morton Buildings Late Model Series events and came away with a pair of solid finishes to show for his efforts.

Most notably, he ended the weekend with a podium finish on Saturday night at Plymouth Dirt Track.

“We’re out here looking to win each-and-every night, but right now I’m pleased with how we are making gains with our program. I think we’ve only finished outside of the Top 10 twice in the past 10 or so races,” Junghans said. “There’s several guys running really well out there right now, and we are continuing to inch closer to getting back to Victory Lane.

“Again, I just want to say ‘thank you’ to my team and everybody, who supports our team and makes this possible.”

Friday night found Chase in action at Outagamie Speedway (Seymour, Wis.) competing in a field of 33 WoO entries. Grabbing the fourth-and-final transfer spot in his heat race, Junghans locked into the 14th-starting position for the opening night feature. With $10,000 on the line, Chase charged forward six spots in the 50-lapper to place eighth.

On Saturday evening at Plymouth Dirt Track (Plymouth, Wis.), Chase followed up the fourth-fastest time in his group with a second-place finish in his heat race behind Jimmy Mars. Starting the $10,000-to-win A-Main in sixth, Junghans initially crossed the finish line in the fourth position. However, the third-place finisher was docked three spots for a rules’ infraction. As a result, Chase was promoted to a third-place finish behind Brandon Sheppard and Jimmy Mars with Ricky Weiss and Scott Bloomquist rounding out the Top-5.

Chase sits fifth in the latest World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series point standings. For more results from the weekend’s events as well as the complete series’ standings, please visit .

A trio of $10,000-to-win WoO races are on tap for this week for Chase Junghans Racing as the series wraps up its extended northern swing.

McIntosh, Kerr and BMS Kick Off Southern Nationals

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Jul 13) Donald McIntosh and Tommy Kerr kicked off the Southern Nationals at Smoky Mountain on Friday night with McIntosh continuing the march at Wythe on Saturday night. It wasn't the start of the 12 race series they wanted in the opener, but things picked up at Wythe Raceway.

On Friday it was a long night for both McIntosh and Kerr. McIntosh started 11th and finished 10th. Kerr made the race through the consi, started 19th and finished 11th.

“Donald’s car was terrible, Tommy’s wasn’t too bad, the crew chief was horrible and as you might imagine it was a long night,” said David Bryant. “Over adjusted  Donald’s car and it was junk.”

“We started 11th and got as high as fifth when the car got really tight and back we went,” grimaced McIntosh. “The only good thing about the night was we didn’t tear anything up.”

I just got behind the eight ball when I didn’t qualify well. After running the heat and the consi I found a rhythm,” said Kerr. “We ran good in the feature but when you start 19th you are in a deep deep hole.”

Saturday night at Wythe Raceway the car was better and everything went better. McIntosh started fourth fell back to eight and worked his way back up to finished fifth.

We had a lot better race car so we qualified and ran better at Wythe,” said McIntosh. “We got a lot closer adjusting the car and were just a little bit off tonight.”

“The car, the crew chief and the driver were all better Saturday night,” said Bryant. “Two down and 10 to go and we are close to being where we need to be.”
The next two Southern National events are at Volunteer Speedway tonight and I-75 Raceway on Tuesday night.

Inside Line Promotions | (541) 510-3663 Backed Bogucki Heading to U.S. 36 and Knoxville This Weekend

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (July 13, 2020) - Scott Bogucki is eager to get back to the race track after enduring a frustrating ending to his most recent race.

The sponsored driver was unable to finish the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event at Riverside International Speedway last Saturday after contact midway through the main event.

"The track was wet and greasy," he said. "I wasn't very good in the heat race and ran fifth. We were really, really good in the B Main. Then I got it too tight for the grease in the A Main."

Bogucki advanced from seventh to fifth place in his heat race before he won a B Main from the pole position. That locked him into the 18th starting position for the main event during his debut at the oval.

"I think we got up to 13th," he said. "I got caught up as we were racing a couple of cars wide and got tagged by a guy. It broke the right front radius rod. I went up the track and stopped, then got hit by another car. It was disappointing because I think we would have ran in the top 10."

Next up is an ASCS National Tour event at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., this Friday. Bogucki placed fifth during a regional race at the high-banked track last year.

"It's a lot of fun, that place," he said. "It's really fast."

This weekend wraps up with a race on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, where Bogucki was victorious for the first time earlier this month.

"I haven't been able to get a lot of laps in the past couple of years at Knoxville," he said.
"The 360 Nationals last year was only my second time there last year. I think we'll be there each week through the Nationals. If we can have the same speed as we did last week we should be really good. I finally have a race car that races in the feature. That's something I struggled with for a long time so to finally have that good of a car is big."


July 11 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 5 (7); B Main: 1 (2); Feature: 19 (18).


13 races, 1 win, 4 top fives, 7 top 10s, 8 top 15s, 10 top 20s

Sides and Tim Kaeding Earn Top 10s for Sides Motorsports During World of Outlaws Tripleheader

Inside Line Promotions - TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (July 13, 2020) - Both Jason Sides and Tim Kaeding recorded a top-10 finish for Sides Motorsports last weekend when the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series visited three different tracks.

Sides produced his second-best outing of the season on Saturday at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis., while Kaeding earned his best finish of the year with the team on Sunday at Terre Haute Action Track.

"I think it was pretty good," Sides said of the weekend. "Just putting the second car up and down two or three nights and traveling will wear you out."

Sides gained four positions to finish 12th on Friday at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa. His best performance of the weekend came the following night at Wilmot Raceway, where he qualified fourth quickest, placed second in a heat race, ended fifth in the dash and capped the night with a 10th-place result in the A Main.

"Restarts were what bit us," he said. "I'd get such a drive off turn four that when I'd get to turns one and two I'd have to lift, the car would push and people would get under me. Once I had speed it was fine, but on the restarts in the first and second corner when you'd be jumbled up behind somebody was when we lost ground. However, any time you get a top 10 out here with all these guys it's good."

Sides had charged from 22nd toward the top 10 on Sunday at Terre Haute Action Track, but a broken u-joint ended his night early.

"We were running 13th or 14th, but it was getting better," he said. "I feel like we would have finished 10th or 11 th. The track was kind of rough and the way it was bouncing and going through the ruts I think is what broke it."

Sunday was the best night for Kaeding, who placed 16th at 34 Raceway and 11th at Wilmot Raceway. He rallied from 14 th to eighth at Terre Haute Action Track.

"Neither one of us qualified very well," Sides said. "We were going to ride it out and see how it went. He passed a few cars. On a red flag we pulled up next to each other and talked. I said, 'Let's not pull in just yet.' He ended up eighth, which was real good."

Sides resumes World of Outlaws competition on Tuesday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, during the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic.
