Tyler Stevens Wires Turkey Bowl Field for $5,075 Victory
Prepares for Wild West Shootout at Vado Speedway Park
SEARCY, Ark. (11/20/23) – The last minute decision to enter a finale event in 2023 resulted in Tyler Stevens third triumph of the season in his Keith Hammett Trucking & Construction LLC / James A. Rogers Excavating No. 2 Southern Belle / SFP Performance Systems / Longhorn by Wells Motorsports / Mod Co Racing Engine Super Late Model.
The triumph was worth $5,075 in Springfield Raceway’s Turkey Bowl XVII Larry Phillips Memorial and came in Stevens’ first venture to the Missouri oval.
“Man it’s good (to win), (it’s my) first time here,” Stevens said. “Started off a little bit nervous, we drew bad, so it buried us. Luckily, we kinda played our cards right and ran up through there in that heat race, put us in a position to be up front for the feature. Started just trying to make some smart moves there through lapped traffic and pretty pumped with the outcome.
“It’s a great way to end the year, and now we are already preparing for the Wild West Shootout in New Mexico in January. A big thank you to everyone who supports us!”
Tyler Stevens banked $5,075 to kick off Thanksgiving week when he took the checkered flag in the Super Late Model portion of the Turkey Bowl XVII Larry Phillips Memorial at Springfield (Mo.) Raceway.
Saturday’s program brought a stout field of 51 Late Models to the quarter-mile clay oval, necessitating five heat races. Stevens drove his No. 2 from ninth to second in his heat race, earning him pole position in the 30-lap main event by virtue of passing points.
Despite being challenged by Dillon McCowan near the halfway point of the feature, Stevens led every lap. He took his third win of 2023 by 1.029 seconds over McCowan, with third place going to Logan Martin. Ryan Gustin took fourth and Justin Zeitner finished fifth.
Stevens ends the year with three wins, six Top-5 finishes, and 10 Top-10 finishes in 25 starts.
The team is now preparing for the 18th annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts on Jan. 6-14 at FK Rod Ends Vado (N.M.) Speedway Park. The six-race miniseries includes five $10,000-to-win programs and a $25,000-to-win finale.

Hunt The Front Doubles Down in Weekend Victory Lane
Buckshot Speedway Visit on Tap Dec. 2
MILTON, Fla. (11/20/23) – The Hunt the Front Racing Team had a fun and fruitful weekend.
Festivities started on Friday evening with Joseph and Jonathan Joiner piloting a Crown Vic to the victory in the 2.4hrs of LeMullets at Freedom Factory. From there Joseph Joiner bested the $5,000-to-win Southern All Star Late Model Series event at Southern Raceway on Saturday night.
“It was a really fun weekend, and obviously winning made it even more fun,” Joseph Joiner said. “Jonathan and I made a heckuva team and got the job done in the Crown Vic on Friday night at Freedom Factory, and then the team gave me a great car on Saturday night at Southern (Raceway) and I was able to pick up the $5,000 win.
“We’re going to take this weekend off and enjoy Thanksgiving with our family, and then get ready for the $10,000-to-win event at Buckshot Speedway on December 2. Thank you to everyone who helps us do what we do and happy holidays to all!”
Joseph Joiner returned to action on Friday night as his brother Jonathan was dusting off his racing suit to compete alongside in The Black Rifle 2.4hrs of LeMullets at Freedom Factory (Bradenton, Fla.).
With the pair splitting the driving duties throughout the night, Joseph powered the Hunt the Front No. 101 Crown Vic entry to the victory in the second stage of the 121-lapper after Jonathan drove for time trials and first half of the main event. Winning by more than a four-second margin when the checkers flew, the pair were both awarded a Stingray Corvette.
Jesse was also in action on Friday at Southern Raceway (Milton, Fla.) for the Southern All Star Series sanctioned Thanksgiving Thunder where he raced to a ninth-place finish in the 30-lap opener.
With a change of plans for Saturday, Joseph joined Jesse at Southern Raceway for the second round of the two-day Southern All Star Series weekend.
Securing a clean sweep, Joiner backed up the fastest qualifying effort aboard his Base Racing Fuel No. 10 Langenfelder Mechanical Contractors / Three Trade Consultants / Longhorn Race Car Super Late Model with a flag-to-flag victory in the 40-lap finale. He collected a $5,000 payday ahead of Dalton Cook, Caleb Gay, Colton Leyendecker, and Cruz Skinner. The win was his 10th overall on the season and eighth career with the Southern All Star Series.
Jesse ran as high as fifth early in the race but a multi-car tangle following a lap-24 restart led to an early exit.
Full results from the events are available at www.FreedomFactoryUSA.com and www.SASDirt.com.
The team will be idle this week before returning to action Dec. 2 at Buckshot Speedway (Clanton, Ala.) in a $10,000-to-win, non-point event for the Hunt the Front Super Dirt Series.

Thanks to my crew and the entire Allgaier family for the opportunity,” Hoffman shared. “See everyone at the Dome (at America’s Center) in a few weeks.
