Swindell Tackling ASCS National Tour Doubleheader in Colorado This Weekend
Inside Line Promotions - GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (May 22, 2017) - Sammy Swindell is heading to Colorado this weekend for the first time in many years.
Swindell will drive for A.G. Rains this Saturday at El Paso County Raceway in Calhan and Sunday at Phillips County Raceway in Holyoke during the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour doubleheader.
"It's been a while," he said. "It's really scenic and it's different with the mountains. It was always a nice place to visit. One year Amy and I drove out early and we spent four or five days out there doing some things."
Swindell said he has won in a non-wing sprint car, midget and a winged sprint car in the state. He was victorious during a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event at Rocky Mountain Speedway in Commerce City on July 4, 1995. He raced at that track several times and he competed with the World of Outlaws at Colorado National Speedway in Erie, Colo., a handful of times as well in the 1970s and 1980s.
"We first went out there in 1976 or 1977," he said. "It was non-wing stuff then. We won in the Bobby Davis car. I have a couple of midget wins, too. The first midget race I ever ran was out there and I won that."
The duo of Swindell and Rains, which has earned three top 10s this season, was scheduled to compete at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., last Saturday during the Hooker Hood Classic. However, the event was rained out for the second straight week.
"We made some changes and it's definitely going to be better," Swindell said. "I don't see any reason for us not to be back up there running up front. The new motor is done, which is almost the same as the one we were running last year. They made some improvements to the one we were running to make it closer to the one we raced with last year. A lot has been happening, but with all these rains outs we haven't been able to race."

Jason Hughes Outruns Rain for 150th USMTS Triumph
Westville, Oklahoma (05/23/17) – While the weekend’s tripleheader may have been bookended by rainouts, Jason Hughes took advantage of the lone-race opportunity to record his 150th career win on Friday night. He powered his Henryetta Ford #12 Hughes Chassis/ Mullins Racing Engine Modified to the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) victory at I-94 Speedway.
With Mother Nature winning the first night of the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) RHRSwag.com Northern Region presented by Summit Racing Equipment on Thursday, Jason Hughes headed to I-94 Speedway (Fergus Falls, Minnesota) on Friday for the 3rd Annual Summersota Nationals presented by Barry Construction.
Passing six cars in his 8-lap heat race, Jason reeled in a 3rd-place finish, positioning him 8th on the starting grid for the feature. Pacing his way to the front, Hughes overtook race-leader Jacob Blees on lap 25 en route to his fourth victory on the season. Zack VanderBeek, Johnny Scott, Cade Dillard, and Stormy Scott rounded out the Top 5.
“Getting the eight staring spot for the feature in the redraw wasn’t the ideal situation, but luckily we had such a good car that it didn’t matter,” said Hughes. “Those late-race cautions forced me to get up on the wheel so that Zack [VanderBeek] couldn’t slip past. It’s great to be back in Victory Lane and to get our 150th USMTS win is pretty cool. This coming weekend we’ll look to add some more wins to the tally.”
Saturday night’s event at Devil’s Lake Speedway (Crary, North Dakota) fell victim to rain.
Jason leads the USMTS Northern Region point standings. Complete results and the latest standings can be found at www.USMTS.com.
The upcoming Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28, will take the team into battle in another USMTS tripleheader. Action opens on Friday night at Mississippi Thunder Speedway (Fountain City, Wisconsin) before moving to Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minnesota) on Saturday evening. The weekend draws to a close on Sunday evening at Upper Iowa Speedway (Decorah, Iowa). For more information on the events, please visit www.USMTS.com .

“To have a strong run against such a stout field of competitors is a major shot in the arm for our team,” Theiss noted. “This was just the performance that we needed, and hopefully we can carry the momentum into the Memorial Day weekend swing.”

Riley Hickman Pickup Up Crossville Victory; Busy Holiday Slate Next
“Rickey [Tucker] provided me with a really great car, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to drive it,” Hickman said. “We didn’t have the best of luck in the Super Late Model class, so it was nice to salvage the night with a Crate Late Model victory.”
Pulling double duty in the Super Late Model and Crate Late Model divisions, Riley Hickman made the trip to Crossville Speedway (Crossville, Tennessee) on Friday night for the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals sanctioned event. In a field of 23 Super Late Models for the $4,000-to-win A-Main, Hickman logged a 22nd-place outing in the 40-lap feature after starting near the tail of the field on a track, where passing was difficult.

It kicks off on Friday night at Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Georgia) as they enter the opening round of a tripleheader weekend with the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals. Saturday night will see the action shifting south to Dixie Speedway (Woodstock, Georgia) before drawing to a close on Sunday night at Rome Speedway (Rome, Georgia).
