Dates: Thursday and Friday, February 14th & 15th
Event: 43rd Annual Winternationals
Series: Ronald Laney Memorial/King of the 360s Open Event
Track: East Bay Raceway Park (Tampa, Fla.)
Tony Stewart A-Main Finishes (Start):
Thursday: 4th (14th)
Friday: 2nd (7th)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (February 18, 2019) – Adding to an early season resume that now includes eight top-ten finishes in ten starts, one of which a victory against the highly-competitive All Star Circuit of Champions, ‘Smoke’ Tony Stewart found success yet again in the Sunshine State, this time capturing back-to-back top-five finishes during 360c.i. sprint car competition at East Bay Raceway Park near Tampa.

Smoke, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car, joined some of the nation’s finest 360 sprint car competitors during his trip to Tampa, ultimately working to attain his first 360 sprint car victory of the 2019 season. Although the three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion fell just shy of his ultimate goal, Smoke displayed consistency and perseverance, gaining a grand total of 15 positions in two races and capping the weekend with a fourth place finish on Thursday, February 14, and a runner-up performance on Friday, February 15.

“We have been working our tails off and it’s definitely paying off,” Tony Stewart said, who owns seven top-five finishes in ten starts. “Jimmy and Marty continue to give me great race cars and it shows. We need to work on starting a little closer to the front. Passing cars is fun, but winning is more fun. I think if we had the opportunity to start a little closer to the front, we would have a few more victories this year.”

Impressive enough, Smoke’s pair of top-five finishes were the result of massive charges through the fields.

On Thursday, Smoke started from the outside of row seven before advancing for a top-five. On Friday, the effort was just the same as Smoke battled forward from seventh to earn his podium run. Adding even more luster to his impressive weekend results, the Columbus, Ind., native won each of his respective heat races.

Unfortunately, Stewart was unable to enter the third and final night of Ronald Laney Memorial competition on Saturday, February 16, due to prior obligations.

Tony Stewart’s upcoming sprint car plans are uncertain. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via social media for further updates.

Brock Zearfoss highlights Florida trip with pair of All Star top-tens; Lincoln’s Icebreaker ahead

(Photo: Brock Zearfoss in action in Florida – Frank Smith Photo Credit)

JONESTOWN, Pa. (February 12, 2019) – Brock Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports were busy during their 2019 season debut, not only joining the All Star Circuit of Champions for five events at two tracks, but also joining the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for what turned out to be a pair of events at Volusia Speedway Park.

For Zearfoss, the trip south not only displayed success, but it also provided knowledge, giving the team valuable insight as they prepare for a full season on the road with the All Star Circuit of Champions.

“We experienced just about everything during our trip, but all in all, we had fun and we had speed. That’s what’s most important,” Brock Zearfoss said, driver of the Premier Motorsports/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Heavy Equipment/Loaders & Parts Inc./BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Meckley’s Limestone Products/Berkebile Oil Company/River City Wood Products/No. 70 sprint car. “I can’t thank everyone enough who makes this possible. We were fortunate enough to have a few of our partners with us in Florida including Alan and Eric from Heavy Equipment. It was a great experience and I’m already looking forward to the rest of the season.”

The ‘Jonestown Jet’ kicked off his winter vacation in sunny Florida with a trio of starts at Bubba Raceway Park on Thursday, January 31 through Saturday, February 2. Three starts resulted in a pair of top-ten finishes for the former Port Royal Speedway sprint car track champion, finishing eighth and sixth during feature competition on Thursday and Saturday, respectively. Although not inside the top-ten, Zearfoss’ result on Friday was one spot shy, actually crossing under the final checkers 11th in the running order.

Certainly the highlight of his opening weekend, Zearfoss’ sixth place performance on Saturday commenced from the inside of row five, kicking off the evening with the third fastest time during qualifying time trials.

Although his visit to Volusia Speedway Park from Wednesday, February 6, until Sunday, February 10, resulted in limited success, the time behind the wheel proved valuable as Zearfoss still managed to qualify for three straight main events, two of which against a loaded World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series field.

The five-race turned four-race stretch at Volusia Speedway Park included two consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions programs on Wednesday and Thursday, followed by two consecutive World of Outlaws events on Friday and Saturday. Despite starting the long weekend with a failed attempt at qualifying for All Star feature action on Wednesday, Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports rebounded in a hurry, ultimately finishing 14th during the All Star Florida finale on Thursday evening.

The Jonestown, Pa., native closed out his trip with back-to-back 23rd place finishes against a stout field of World of Outlaws competitors.

Sunday’s World of Outlaws program was eventually cancelled due to Mother Nature; it was not rescheduled.

Up next on the schedule, Brock Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports will visit the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway in Abbottsown, Pa., for the annual Icebreaker 30 – Pennsylvania’s sprint car season opener – on Saturday, February 23. The Pennsylvania Posse lidlifter will award a $4,000 top prize.

(Photo: Brent Marks in action at Volusia Speedway Park – Paul Arch Photo Credit)

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (February 12, 2019) – Despite a tough outing in the Sunshine State, highlighting his four-race stretch at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville with an 18th place finish during All Star Circuit of Champions competition, Brent Marks remains highly optimistic, already looking forward to his visit to Texas with the World of Outlaws in less than two weeks.

“That wasn’t how we wanted to start our 2019 season, but we’ll take those results and move forward,” Brent Marks explained, driver of the Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car. “We have about a week and a half to get ourselves regrouped before we race in Texas. It’s always exciting for us to have the opportunity to race in Texas because M&M Painting and A. Murray Family Investments are headquartered there. The entire Murray family plays such an important role with this race team. I’m excited to get the chance to race in their backyard again.”

Following his 18th place finish against Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions on Wednesday, February 6, Brent Marks continued his Volusia Speedway Park visit and officially kicked off his 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series campaign with a pair of starts on Friday and Saturday, February 8 & 9. Although forced to utilize a pair of World of Outlaws provisional starting positions after not qualifying through preliminary action, the Myerstown, Pa., native did what he could to recover successfully. Unfortunately, Brent Marks Racing settled for 22nd placed finishes after starting 26th and 25th, respectively.

Up next on the schedule, Brent Marks and Brent Marks Racing will travel over 1,000 miles west from Barberville, Fla., to the Lone Star State where the World of Outlaws will invade Cotton Bowl Speedway and LoneStar Speedway on Friday and Saturday, February 22 & 23, respectively.  

An impressive feat, nonetheless, the 2019 season will be year three for Marks as a full-time competitor on the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series trail.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (February 12, 2019) – After a successful start to his 2019 sprint car campaign that included an All Star Circuit of Champions victory at Bubba Raceway Park, Tony Stewart continued his season with another busy weekend in the Sunshine State, this time entering four-straight events across two classes of sprint cars. The four-race weekend resulted in success for the three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, earning three top-ten finishes during his four starts, two of which podium runs amongst national-level 360 sprint car competition.

Stewart, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car, kicked off his third weekend of Florida fun with a two-race stint at Volusia Speedway Park on Wednesday and Thursday, February 6 & 7, rejoining the All Star Circuit of Champions for back-to-back $5,000-to-win programs.

Continuing a competitive trend against the traveling All Stars, Smoke won each of his respective heat races, automatically qualifying the open wheel veteran for each of the 30-lap contests. Although Wednesday’s result was a slight disappointment, fading to 13th after starting fourth on the feature grid, Stewart rebounded in a big way on Thursday and finished seventh after starting sixth, earning his third All Star top-ten performance in five Series starts.

With All Star Circuit of Champions action complete, Tony Stewart turned his focus west and made the trip back across Route 40 to Bubba Raceway Park where the Columbus, Ind., joined the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour for their segment of Winter Nationals competition on Friday and Saturday, February 8 & 9.

Already a success story within the USCS 360 sprint car ranks by earning multiple victories in 2018, Stewart padded his statistics with back-to-back podium runs at the Ocala oval, ultimately proving to be one of the most consistent competitors in action. Two nights equalled two heat race victories for Stewart, as well as two-straight runner-up performances during the nightly dashes. Stewart’s consistency did not halt there, eventually highlighting the weekend with a runner-up finish during main event action on Friday, soon followed by an impressive rally from 13th to finish third on Saturday.

“We are out here having a lot of fun and I owe it all to my team. They have been working their tails off trying to figure things out and I think we are on the right track,” Tony Stewart explained. “When you can be competitive and find yourself up front on a consistent basis, that’s when things really start to click. We have a lot going on over the next few weeks so hopefully we can keep this trend going.”

Tony Stewart’s upcoming plans are uncertain. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via social media for further updates.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (February 12, 2019) – Although put to the test early, forced to battle through a pair of B-main starts against the All Star Circuit of Champions to officially kick off his 2019 American sprint car campaign, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz lived up to his expectations and performed in a big way, earning four-straight top-ten finishes, one of which a podium run against the Greatest Show On Dirt.

Schatz, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 15 sprint car, kicked off his season on American soil with back-to-back All Star Circuit of Champions events in the Sunshine State, joining the Tony Stewart-owned organization at Volusia Speedway Park on Wednesday and Thursday, February 6 & 7.

Despite qualifying below par and failing to transfer through each of his respective All Star heat races, Schatz maintained his composure and rallied for hard charger-worthy performances, ultimately finishing second during each B-main and climbing a combined 31 positions during feature competition; 22nd to fourth on Wednesday and 22nd to ninth on Thursday. Impressive enough, Schatz performed his passing display with the help of only one feature caution in two days.

Once All Star competition was complete, the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series took center stage at Volusia Speedway Park and opened their 2019 season with a trio of events on Friday through Sunday, February 8-10. Although the weekend was eventually cut short one day, losing to a persistent Mother Nature on Sunday, Donny Schatz took advantage of the World of Outlaws opener and earned back-to-back top-five finishes, highlighting the weekend with a third place performance on Saturday. Taking shape during a caution-free 30-lapper, Schatz’s podium result started from the inside of row four.

The ten-time and defending Series champion kicked off his World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season with a fifth place finish on Friday; an impressive result that commenced from the outside of row five. In consistent fashion, Schatz earned each of his A-main starting positions by finishing third during his respective heat races.

“It was a solid start to our season. I don’t think we’ll ever be satisfied unless we are on top at the end of the night, but regardless, this was a great team effort,” Donny Schatz said, who will hunt for an 11th World of Outlaws title in 2019. “I’ve said it countless times, but I’m privileged to be able to work with the best crew in racing. We put ourselves in some holes during the early part of the weekend, but we rebounded and that’s important. I’m already looking ahead.”

Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart Racing will continue their 2019 World of Outlaws championship chase with a pair of starts in Texas, first visiting Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige on Friday, February 22.

Following his visit to Paige, Schatz will make the trip to Kilgore for a one-night stand at LoneStar Speedway on Saturday, February 23.

Although the LoneStar trip was plagued with wet weather in 2018, the Cotton Bowl Speedway visit was eventually contested but postponed from its original February date to late-April; Schatz finished ninth.

Tony Stewart victorious with All Stars during Bubba Raceway Park’s Winter Nationals

Dates: Thursday through Saturday, January 31 – February 2, 2019
Event: Bubba Army Winter Nationals
Series: Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1
Track: Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, Fla.)
Tony Stewart A-Main Finishes (Start):
Thursday: 3rd (2nd)
Friday: 13th (12th)
Saturday: 1st (1st)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (February 4, 2019) – It only took four starts for Tony Stewart to navigate his way to victory lane in 2019, and doing so against the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1.

Stewart, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car, earned his trip to victory lane during Winter Nationals competition at Bubba Raceway Park on Saturday, February 2. Nearly sweeping the entire evening program, Stewart led all 30 circuits to close out the All Star visit to the Ocala oval, eventually lapping over half of the field while maintaining a near-eight second lead for much of the main event.

In addition to his $5,000 victory, Stewart also won his respective heat race, as well as the dash, thus allowing the Columbus, Ind., native to start from the pole position.

“This definitely feels great. We had our friends from Sage Fruit and Rush Truck Centers watching so to get a win for those guys is really special. I felt like I let one get away the other night. I’m still not sure what I did wrong, but we let that one get away on Thursday,” Tony Stewart said, owner of the All Star Circuit of Champions. “We had a fast car all weekend. We really didn’t qualify that well on Saturday, but it put us on the pole of a heat race and that’s where you need to be for these races. I have a lot of great help and I wouldn’t be able to do this without them.”

Although his win on Saturday certainly iced the cake, the three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion kicked off his three-day visit to Bubba Raceway Park with a podium run on Thursday, January 31. Certainly the man in charge until losing the top spot, Smoke led the first 23 circuits before losing the lead to the CJB Motorsports entry driven by Shane Stewart.

In spite of the fact that Smoke was able to battle back and regain control on lap 25, Tim Shaffer soon came into the picture and drove by each of them, earning the lead over Smoke with a drag race off of turn four on lap 28. Shane Stewart followed suit and drove by Smoke to take control of second on lap 29.

Forced to battle a stout field, as well as a narrow, but fast racing surface, Stewart’s performance on Friday was disappointing when compared to his results on Thursday and Saturday. The open wheel veteran was compelled to settle for a 13th place finish after starting from the outside of row six.

“It was a fun weekend,” Tony Stewart continued. “You won’t find another track in the world shaped like Bubba Raceway Park. It sets up a lot of unique passing opportunities. I’m looking forward to returning.”

Brock Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports to make 2019 debut Thursday at Bubba Raceway Park

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (January 29, 2019) – Brock Zearfoss and Pete Grove’s Premier Motorsports will make their 2019 debut Thursday evening, January 31, in Ocala, Fla., joining the All Star Circuit of Champions for the first of three consecutive nights of Winter Nationals competition at Bubba Raceway Park.

Zearfoss, the 2017 Port Royal Speedway sprint car track champion and an 11-time feature winner over the last three seasons, one of which against the Greatest Show On Dirt, will work to fire off the season in a big way, ultimately beating the All Stars in Ocala for one of three, if not all three, $5,000 top prizes.

“I’m excited to get started,” Brock Zearfoss said, driver of the Premier Motorsports/Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill/Heavy Equipment/Loaders & Parts Inc./BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Meckley’s Limestone Products/Berkebile Oil Company/River City Wood Products/Lumber and Things/No. 70 sprint car. “I’m fortunate enough to be associated with so many great people. If it wasn’t for them, I’m not sure I would be in this position. Pete Grove gave me a great opportunity to go racing in 2019 and I’m more than grateful for this chance. Together, I think we have a great team. We’ll see soon enough.”

Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports, who will travel the All Star Circuit of Champions schedule full-time in 2019, will also visit Volusia Speedway Park during their Florida campaign and rejoin the All Star Circuit of Champions for back-to-back programs on Wednesday and Thursday, February 6 & 7. If all goes according to plan, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ will also join the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series for their segment of Volusia’s DIRTcar Nationals on Friday through Sunday, February 8-10.

“Basically, the plan is to race eight times in Florida,” Zearfoss continued. “We’ll have five starts with the All Stars and three starts with the World of Outlaws. I can’t think of a better way to get the year underway.”

ST. HELENA, Calif. (January 28, 2019) – Rico Abreu’s 2019 sprint car season is officially underway, kicking things off with 360 sprint car competition at the Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, California.

Certainly no stranger to the Stockton Dirt Track, Abreu, aboard his Rico Abreu Racing/Curb Agajanian/Abreu Vineyards/Lucas Oil/Curb Records/Priority Aviation/No. 24 sprint car, finished second during the $2,000-to-win afternoon special, climbing ahead one position on a narrow, but quick 4/10-mile clay oval.

“It was nice to get back in a sprint car,” Rico Abreu said, who won the Gary Patterson Tribute at Stockton to conclude his 2018 season. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work and dedication. Obviously, we ended last season on a pretty solid note. It was nice to continue that momentum this weekend. We have a few weeks off before we race again, but we’ll be ready to go.”

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu Racing/Curb Agajanian will enter the bulk of their 2019 campaign fresh off of a competitive season in 2018. The St. Helena, Calif., native earned five victories last year, three of which taking shape in his home state of California. Perhaps Abreu’s most memorable moment in 2018 took shape in Pevely, Mo., when the pilot of the familiar No. 24 took out the Outlaws for a $20,000 top prize during the annual Ironman 55. It was Abreu’s second consecutive Ironman 55 title.

Updates regarding Rico Abreu’s 2019 schedule will be announced in the coming weeks. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via all respective social media channels; Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
