GETTYSBURG, Pa. (December 10, 2018) – ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich will kick off the new year with a visit to the Sunshine State, planning to join Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions during events at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala and Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville.

If all goes according to plan, Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing, who will support a brand new look during their 2019 campaign, will compete with the All Stars during all five scheduled appearances in Florida, still unsure about the World of Outlaws events at Volusia following the All Star invasion.

“We have been working hard this off-season. We are just about ready to go,” Danny Dietrich explained regarding his plans to visit Florida on January 31 – February 7. “We are really excited about how the new car looks. I can’t thank Gary Kauffman and the entire team enough for this opportunity. Hopefully we can get the new year started right and get a win in Florida.”

“I want to thank Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts for coming on board in a big way in 2019,” Dietrich continued. “This team has always been privileged with a tremendous amount of support and we are all very excited to have Big Cove join our list of dedicated partners.”

Trevor Baker will drive 600cc micro for Bryan Grove in North Carolina, Tulsa Shootout

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

SHREVE, Ohio (November 15, 2018) – Despite a long break from competition, due in part to a busy work schedule, Shreve, Ohio’s Trevor Baker will return to action later this week, this time making a trip to Raeford, N.C., to enter 600cc micro sprint competition for fellow Ohio native and car owner, Bryan Grove.

Baker, who spent much of the calendar year racing around the Midwest with some of the best 410 sprint car teams in the country, will visit Rockfish Speedway during his time in the Tar Heel State, ready to enter the two-night Winter Classic on Friday and Saturday, November 16 & 17. The two-day 600cc showcase will feature a pair of complete shows, each awarding a $1,000 top prize.

Adding a twist to the weekend, Friday’s portion of the Winter Classic will be contested without the top wing, and Saturday’s portion contested with the top wing. Baker has yet to make a 600cc start without a top wing.

“This was more or less a last minute deal. I’m excited for the opportunity to race for Bryan Grove. It’s a great chance to do some traveling this off-season before our sprint car schedule picks back up in February,” Trevor Baker explained. “It should be a fun trip. This is a perfect opportunity for us to get some test laps before we visit Tulsa for the Shootout in January.”

Despite a lengthy absence, Baker will enter Rockfish Speedway gates with some prior experience on his side, actually entering competition at the 1/5-mile, clay oval and earning a top-ten finish.

“Yea, believe it or not, this is not my first trip to Rockfish. I actually traveled down there for a micro race roughly five years ago. I know we finished inside the top-ten, so that’s enough to make us excited to go back,” Baker laughed. “Hopefully the track hasn’t changed much in five years.”

If all goes according to plan, Trevor Baker and Bryan Grove will make the trip to Tulsa, Okla., during the first week of January. The duo will enter the annual Tulsa Shootout; the largest micro sprint race in the United States.

SPECIAL THANKS: T-Rev Performance and Trevor Baker would like to thank all of their marketing partners including: Baker’s Mobile Home Transport, Exodus Cycle, Coblentz Trucking, H&S Concrete, Mid Ohio Diesel, Amsoil Stone Creek Lube, Triple-X Chassis.

Smoke earns Sunshine State Sprint Car Shootout opener at Bubba Raceway Park

Smoke earns Sunshine State Sprint Car Shootout opener at Bubba Raceway Park

Dates: Friday and Saturday, November 9th & 10th
Event: Sunshine State Sprint Car Shootout
Series: United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour
Track: Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, Fla.)
Tony Stewart A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 1st (1st)
Saturday: 12th (5th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (November 13, 2018) – Another Florida visit equaled another Florida victory for Columbus, Indiana’s Tony Stewart, this time conquering the Sunshine State Sprint Car Shootout opener at Bubba Raceway Park on Friday evening, November 9. For Smoke, the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) 360 victory bumped his season win total to four, now with three during USCS competition.

Smoke’s visit to the northern Florida venue was nearly flawless on Friday night, first charging from sixth to finish second during heat race action, ultimately setting up a front row starting position for the 25-lap main event. From that point forward, it was the ‘Smoke Show,’ utilizing the pole position to dominate all 25 circuits of the Sprint Car Shootout.

Stewart owns USCS victories at Magnolia Motor Speedway, Southern Raceway, and now Bubba Raceway Park.

“It feels good to come down here and get a win. The season is all but over, but it’s nice to be able to escape to Florida for a few days and race at Bubba Raceway Park. I owe it all to the guys standing behind me,” Stewart explained, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/No. 14 sprint car. “They bust their butts week in and week out. The schedule we put together wasn’t easy, by any means. It’s a lot of work and a lot of travel, but times like this make it all worth it.”

Unfortunately, Stewart was unable to repeat success on Saturday evening during the Sunshine State Sprint Car Shootout finale at Bubba Raceway Park. Smoke would end the weekend with a 12th place performance after starting on the inside of row three. The three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion qualified for main event action by finishing fourth during his respective heat race.

Stewart’s visit to Bubba Raceway Park concluded his 2018 winged sprint car campaign. A season comprised of nearly 70 starts, Smoke will enter the off-season with not only four victories, but also 39 top-ten finishes, 28 of which occurring inside the top-five.

Of Stewart’s four wins, one was attained during All Star Circuit of Champions competition; the result of an impressive charge from fifth to earn a $5,000 payday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pennsylvania. With that said, Stewart qualified for 30 All Star main events in 2018, amassing 14 top-ten finishes and seven top-fives. Smoke’s most recent All Star success took shape at Outlaw (N.Y.) Speedway on Friday, September 14; Stewart finished sixth.

Brent Marks reflects on successful season with Greatest Show On Dirt; WoO-bound again in 2019

Brent Marks reflects on successful season with Greatest Show On Dirt; WoO-bound again in 2019

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (November 10, 2018) – The ‘Myerstown Missile’ Brent Marks certainly padded his racing resume during his 2018 campaign, not only completing another grueling, 10-month stretch on the road with the Greatest Show On Dirt, but also accomplishing the ultimate feat of beating the best in the world – three times.

Marks, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/Buckwalter Trucking/No. 19 sprint car, ended his 2018 World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series schedule with World Finals competition at the Dirt Track at Charlotte, ultimately qualifying for each of the contested main events and highlighting the weekend with a 20th place performance during the Friday night A-main (contested on Saturday afternoon due to weather conflicts on Friday).

Despite a middle-of-the-road finish to his season, still bettering over half of the 50+ entrants signed in at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Marks’ 2018 campaign was an overall success story, accumulating three victories with the World of Outlaws, one of which at the World’s Greatest Dirt Track, Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, during the coveted 4-Crown Nationals weekend. It was Mark’s first-ever win at the prestigious half-mile and he did so in dramatic fashion; taking command with just seven laps remaining.

Including his trio of triumphs, Marks earned a total of 29 top-ten finishes with the traveling Outlaws, seven of which inside the top-five.  

Impressive enough, Marks was able to attain much of success with just one crew member, Jesse Lentz. Dallas Schott joined Brent Marks Racing just after Marks earned his first win of the season during action in Wilmot, Wis., followed by the addition of crew chief, Jim Shuttlesworth, who stepped-in just before the Knoxville Nationals.

“I can’t say enough about my team and the effort put forth. Jessie and I were on our own for the first half of the season, but we were fortunate enough to add some people later in the year and it proved to be very beneficial. I can’t thank everyone enough for their hard work,” Brent Marks explained, who earned an Outlaws victory at Weedsport Speedway in addition to his wins at Wilmot and Eldora. “I wouldn’t be in this position without my family and all of my dedicated partners. It takes a lot of parts to make a race team go up and down the highway, not to mention be capable of winning. I’m privileged to be in this position.”

Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will return to the road full-time in 2019. Updates, including the potential for new and returning marketing partners, will be released in the near-future.

“We are hard at work getting ready for next season. If you think about it, the off-season isn’t much of an off-season. We’ll be on our way to Florida soon enough,” Marks continued. “The next few months will be busy, but we are more motivated than ever.”

Zearfoss enters off-season with positive outlook

Zearfoss enters off-season with positive outlook

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (November 10, 2018) – A season complete with success, team changes and new places, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ Brock Zearfoss will enter the off-season with a positive outlook, already taking steps forward in preparation for the new year.

Zearfoss, who concluded the year in charge of the Brock Zearfoss Racing/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Meckley’s Limestone/Central Builders Supply Co./Berkebile Oil Company/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Creekside Roofing and Siding/Bargain Barn/Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc./No. 3Z sprint car, capped off his 2018 campaign with a trip to The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Thursday through Friday, November 1-3. Despite weather interfering with much of the weekend, the show went on and so did Zearfoss, ultimately qualifying for each of the World of Outlaws main events contested.

The Jonestown, Pa., native earned two victories during the 2018 season, incidentally occurring in back-to-back fashion during action at Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on April 20 & 21, respectively. The pair of victories were only the tip of Zearfoss’ iceberg of accomplishments that also includes 20 top-five performances, many of which against the elite of sprint car racing.

Perhaps Zearfoss’ most impressive feat of the season was accomplished during competition at the Sprint Car Capital of the World – Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. The hired ace for North Dakota-based Destiny Motorsports at the time, Zearfoss qualified for the coveted Knoxville Nationals A-main during a first-ever attempt. The team locked themselves into the A-main by transferring through the Knoxville Nationals B-main contested just prior to the historic, $150,000-to-win main event.

Zearfoss finished tenth during Knoxville Nationals preliminary competition.

“What a summer. It was full of ups, downs and everything else in between, but at the end of the day, I’m very grateful for the opportunities given and the experiences I had the pleasure of enduring,” Zearfoss said. “It was a blast and I’m already looking forward to next year.”

Despite his plans not officially set in stone, Zearfoss is excited for what the future has in store. Any updates regarding 2019 will be released in the coming weeks. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via social media, brockzearfoss.com and fullyinjected.com.

“We have some things in the works, but I’m not ready to unveil anything just yet,” Zearfoss continued. “I want to make sure everything is ready to rock and roll before anything is said. It’s going to be exciting.”

Donny Schatz caps tenth WoO championship run with victory in Charlotte

Dates: Thursday through Saturday, November 1st – 3rd
Event: World of Outlaws World Finals
Series: World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series
Track: The Dirt Track at Charlotte (Charlotte, N.C.)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start):
Friday Program: 10th (21st)
Saturday Program: 1st (10th)

Final 2018 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 1st – 9,944 points (286-point margin over second place, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (November 6, 2018) – Capping off an extraordinaire season with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz earned a win during his final WoO start of the year, snagging $12,000 in the process and raising his season win mark to 22.

Ultimately distracted by wet weather, Schatz’ World Finals performance at The Dirt Track at Charlotte included a pair of top-ten performances in one day, advancing a grand total of 20 positions in front of a sellout crowd in Concord, North Carolina.

“Hats off to my guys, they have worked their butts off all season. I’m the hardest guy in the pits to work for because if it’s not perfect, I’m not happy,” Schatz said with a smile next to his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Textron Off Road/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/ No. 15 sprint car. “These guys do an excellent job night in and night out. I wouldn’t want anyone else out here with me.”

With Mother Nature wreaking havoc during much of the day on Friday, the World of Outlaws main event scheduled for later that evening was eventually pushed to Saturday afternoon, forcing an epic doubleheader for the Greatest Show On Dirt. After an impressive rally from 21st to finish tenth during the first 30-lap program, Schatz did one better later that evening and earned a trip to victory lane from the outside of row five.

The nine-position rally was impressive, but it did not come easy as Schatz was forced to hold back multiple late race takeover attempts by Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart.

“I felt great on that restart with seven laps to go and I knew it would take someone with a lot of speed to get by me and sure enough here comes Logan (Schuchart),” Schatz continued. “He has been fast all season.”

Schatz’ 2018 WoO title bumps his total to eight under Tony Stewart Racing (TSR), all after accumulating back-to-back triumphs for Donny Schatz Motorsports (DSM) in 2006 & 2007. The transition from DSM to TSR in 2008 proved to be a successful decision for Schatz, actually kicking off his TSR tenure with a title later that season.

Including the eight captured by Schatz, Tony Stewart Racing now owns nine World of Outlaws team titles. The first of the nine was accomplished in 2001 by Dover, Missouri’s Danny Lasoski. Schatz’ titles for TSR were earned in 2008, 2009, 2012, and 2014-2018.

Rico Abreu ends 2018 sprint car season with Gary Patterson Tribute victory at Stockton

Dates: Friday & Saturday, November 2nd & 3rd
Event: 35th Annual Tribute to Gary Patterson
Series: Sprint Car Challenge Tour 360 Sprints (SCCT) & King of the West-NARC 410 Series (KWS)
Track: Stockton Dirt Track (Stockton, Calif.)
Rico Abreu Finishes (Start):
Friday (360): DNF (10th)
Saturday (SCCT): 5th (3rd)
Saturday (KWS): 1st (3rd)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (November 6, 2018) – The weekend kicked off slow, but picked up in a hurry as Rico Abreu capped off his 2018 winged sprint car season with a victory at Stockton (Calif.) Dirt Track. Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Alpinestars/Lucas Oil/Rhino Wipe/Priority Aviation/No. 24 sprint car, earned his fifth win of the season during the King of the West-NARC Sprint Car Series finale. It was Abreu’s third victory of the year in the state of California, adding his Stockton triumph to a list that already includes Silver Dollar Speedway and Keller Auto Speedway.

“I can’t thank my team enough for all of their hard work and dedication this season. We’ve had a lot of tough times, but the good times always outweigh the bad. We’ve molded into a family and I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else right now,” Rico Abreu said of his Rico Abreu Racing crew. “We had a busy weekend at Stockton. The guys held tough and worked their butts off. I’m proud of what we were able to accomplish.”

After a tough start to the weekend at Stockton Dirt Track, provoked by a ‘DNF’ finish during Friday’s non-sanctioned 360 main event, Rico Abreu rebounded in a big way on Saturday and scored a pair of top-five finishes against two of California’s premier sprint car sanctioning bodies.

The season finale for each of the traveling sprint car series, Rico Abreu kicked-off the Tribute to Gary Patterson at Stockton with a fifth place performance during the Sprint Car Challenge Tour (SCCT) 360 program. The St. Helena, Calif., native started third on the feature grid and locked himself into the main event by finishing second during his respective heat race, just before finishing third during the SCCT dash.

Making the quick jump from one car to the next, Abreu concluded the Tribute to Gary Patterson with a $5,000 victory during King of the West competition. An exciting end to his season, nonetheless, Abreu started third on the feature grid, but was unable to make the winning move around Roth Motorsports’ Kyle Hirst until late, taking command officially with three laps remaining.

“That was a fun finish; definitely a great way to end our season in a winged sprint car,” Rico Abreu continued. “Things kept getting better and better for us as the months rolled by. Hopefully we can move that momentum into next year.”

Rico Abreu will spend a few weekends away from competition before returning to the driver’s seat on Wednesday & Thursday, November 21 & 22, for the 78th edition of the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Ventura (Calif.) Raceway. The USAC Midget program will award a $6,000 top prize.
