Cory Haas secures top-ten during Williams Grove Speedway season opener

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

YORK, Pa. (March 18, 2019) – After making a last minute decision to bypass the annual Icebreaker at Lincoln Speedway, Cory Haas and Trone Outdoor Motorsports finally activated their 2019 campaign and completed a Central Pennsylvania doubleheader on Saturday and Saturday, March 16 & 17.

Although a bit rusty after a near-five month hiatus, Haas and Trone displayed consistency and perseverance during their opening weekend of competition, ultimately wrapping up their two-day sweep through south-central Pennsylvania with a 12th place performance at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, followed by a tenth place finish, a product from row seven, during the Williams Grove Speedway season opener on Sunday.

In actuality, Haas was battling within the top-ten at Lincoln before settling for his 12th place finish. A decision to utilize the bottom groove proved to be a poor one for Haas, ultimately losing several positions before transferring his momentum back to the top of the speedway.

“The track was pretty good at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday. We had a few opportunities during restarts to capitalize, but they really didn’t go our way. At Lincoln, we tried to make the bottom work, but we ended up getting stuck down there and lost a few spots,” Cory Haas explained, driver of the Trone Outdoor Motorsports/Trone Outdoor Advertising/Old Republic Distillery/Creekside Auto Sales/No. 39 sprint car. “Regardless, it feels good to be back in a sprint car. I can’t thank John Trone enough for the opportunity to come out here and do this again. We are working toward a big year. I’m excited to keep things going.”

Cory Haas and Trone Outdoor Motorsports will continue their 2019 campaign with repeat visits to Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on Friday and Saturday, March 22 & 23, respectively.

Justin Whittall’s 2019 season officially underway; Joined Posse at Lincoln and Williams Grove

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

VINCENTOWN, N.J. (March 18, 2019) – After months of waiting, Vincentown, New Jersey’s Justin Whittall finally kicked off his 2019 season, doing so by joining the Pennsylvania Posse during visits to Lincoln Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway, respectively.

Whittall, driver of the JW Motorsports/Atlantic Utility Trailer/Brotherton Brewing Company/Pioneer Auto Body/Worldwide Bearings/No. 67 sprint car, highlighted his weekend in the Keystone State with a 14th place finish during the Williams Grove Speedway season opener on Sunday, March 17.

Although Whittall dropped outside of the top-ten, ultimately fading to 14th after starting sixth on the feature grid, it was a positive experience for the former United Racing Club (URC) traveler, and he is already looking forward to his return to the world-famous paperclip.

“We didn’t have the car where it needed to be on Sunday, but we learned a lot and we’ll use that to our advantage,” Justin Whittall explained, now a full-time Pennsylvania Posse competitor since graduating from the 360c.i. ranks. “It takes a lot of time and a lot of laps to learn how to be quick on a dry and slick racing surface. Regardless, we had fun and I’m happy.”

Whittall’s visit to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday afternoon had some mishaps, but the end result was satisfactory; salvaging an 18th place finish after being forced to compete in the afternoon’s consolation event. A cut tire during heat race action was the culprit forcing Whittall to the consolation race where he would eventually bounce ahead from ninth to finish sixth.

Up next on the schedule, Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will make the trip to the Port Royal Speedway ‘Speed Palace’ for its season-opening program on Saturday, March 23.

Brett Michalski 17th in Williams Grove Opener

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PENNDEL, Pa. (March 18, 2019) – Despite a frustrating weekend in Central Pennsylvania, highlighting his two-race sweep with a 17th place finish during the Williams Grove Speedway season opener on Sunday, March 17, Penndel, Pennsylvania’s Brett Michalski still found some light in his two days in Posse Country and is already looking forward to revisiting The Grove and Lincoln on Friday and Saturday, March 22 & 23.

“You have to take the bad with the good and move forward. I’m just happy to be racing in Central Pennsylvania,” Bret Michalski explained, the 2018 Lincoln Speedway Rookie of the Year. “We still have a lot to learn, but we are learning quickly. We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by a lot of great people who help us out. They like to see us improve and we certainly appreciate their input. We’ll work for better results this weekend.”

Although Michalski missed main event action on Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Speedway, finishing just shy of a transfer position during the sprint car consolation event, the second-year sprint car competitor still has a lot to show for in the Pigeon Hills, as Michalski finished tenth during the season-opening Icebreaker one week prior.

Brent Marks rallies to finish 12th at Silver Dollar Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MYERSTOWN, Pa. (March 18, 2019) – Despite the recent weekend ending on a frustrating note, actually losing a Last Chance Showdown transfer position at Stockton Dirt Track after contact with another competitor broke Marks’ front end, the ‘Myerstown Missile’ Brent Marks put together a solid performance at Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday, March 15, and ended his evening with a rally from 17th to finish 12th.

Although not a top-ten performance, the finish was important, giving Marks and his Brent Marks Racing/M&M Painting & Construction/BAPS Auto Paint & Supply/Eagle Hotel/No. 19 sprint car team a sense of momentum as the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series West Coast Swing continues on Friday and Saturday, March 22 & 23, at Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway, respectively.

Marks qualified for main event action at Silver Dollar Speedway by finishing fifth during his respective heat race. The Myerstown, Pa., native was in order to use a provisional starting position at Stockton, but a last minute review of the car allowed the team to notice a hole in the radiator; the team surrendered their provisional.

“That was a demanding weekend, to say the least. We got banged around a little bit on Saturday, but those things are going to happen,” Brent Marks explained regarding his visit to Stockton. “When you are racing against that level of competition, there are no soft spots. You have to race hard for every position. Unfortunately for us, we got beat up a little bit at Stockton. Friday night was better, but still not quite where we want to be. We’ll get things turned around soon.”

Brent Marks will enter the Ocean and Placerville events 17th in the current World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings.

Danny Dietrich scores first win of 2019 during visit to the Pigeon Hills

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (March 18, 2019) – For the first time in 2019, Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing are main event winners in Central Pennsylvania. The victory, a third consecutive podium finish for ‘Double-D’ in the Keystone State, was worth $3,500.

Although the nearby-Gettysburg native started from the pole position, it was not an easy victory, as the former Lincoln Speedway track champion lost command to Anthony Macri during the early stages of the main event. Although Macri was seemingly in control, Dietrich tracked him down in a hurry, actually battling back within a car length with just three laps remaining.

As the top two entered turn one on the final circuit, Dietrich dived to the bottom of the speedway, desperately attempting to slide in front of Macri as the pair exited turn two. The move worked perfectly, sealing the deal by blocking the cushion at the entrance of turn three.

“That was fun. I wasn’t sure if we were going to get [Macri], but I knew if we stayed patient, things would work out. I’ve been in that situation before. Sometimes it’s better to be in the second spot during the closing laps,” Danny Dietrich explained, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “I can’t thank my guys enough for all of their hard work. We’ll try to do it again next weekend.”

Danny Dietrich capped off his recent weekend with the Williams Grove Speedway season opener on Sunday afternoon, March 17. Nearly attaining the weekend sweep, Dietrich was a close second at The Grove, finishing just behind Lucas Wolfe after starting ninth on the grid. Actually, Dietrich caught a break early after Steve Buckwalter failed to take the green; Dietrich moved ahead one row to start seventh.

Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2019 campaign with an upcoming weekend schedule much like the last; visits to Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on Friday and Saturday, March 22 & 23, respectively.

Zearfoss earns back-to-back top-tens in Posse Country

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (March 18, 2019) – Despite a few hiccups including a water line issue at Williams Grove Speedway, the ‘Jonestown Jet’ Brock Zearfoss displayed speed and consistency during the recent weekend, ending his Central Pennsylvania double with a pair of top-ten performances, all of which highlighted with an eighth place finish at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, March 16.

The full-time All Star, who will enter select Central Pennsylvania programs until his All Star schedule resumes on April 11, was battling as high as sixth during feature competition at Lincoln before eventually fading to eighth. Unfortunately, a few bold moves with the intent to gain a few extra spots ended up causing more harm than good.

“We’ll get better at pulling pills sooner or later,” Brock Zearfoss said, who started tenth at Lincoln Speedway, as well as at Williams Grove Speedway during the recent weekend. “Regardless, we did what we could to move closer toward the front. I tried to make some moves at Lincoln, but they didn’t end up helping us. My guys gave me a great car all weekend. I think if we had the opportunity to start closer toward the front, we would have been right there. We’ll keep digging and try again next weekend.”

During the Williams Grove Speedway season opener on Sunday, March 17, Zearfoss, 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, was scheduled to start tenth when disaster struck in the form of a water line issue. Luckily, the team was able to go pit-side before the start of the main event and fix the problem. The downside, they were instructed to restart at the tail of the field.

An impressive recovery, to say the least, Zearfoss bounced back in a hurry, eventually crossing under the final checkers ninth in the running order. The result pushed Zearfoss’ top-ten total to five on the season, now with three consecutive during starts in the Keystone State.

Up next on the schedule, Brock Zearfoss and Premier Motorsports will visit Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday, March 22 & 23, respectively.

Rico Abreu continues Outlaw West Coast Swing with top-tens in Chico and Stockton

Rico Abreu A-Main Finish (Start): 6th (14th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (March 18, 2019) – Rico Abreu’s weekend in his home state of California was a success, officially terminating his streak of poor luck with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series by securing back-to-back top-ten performances during starts at Silver Dollar Speedway and Stockton Dirt Track.

Although impressive, finishing tenth and sixth, respectively, during his World of Outlaws starts at Silver Dollar and Stockton, Abreu was forced to do things the hard way all weekend, actually rallying from last on Friday at Silver Dollar Speedway, all before losing a handful of positions on Saturday as the result of a spin while battling for a position inside the top-five.

“It was a wild weekend, but we recovered and that’s the bottom line,” Rico Abreu explained, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Southern Pacific Farms/Lucas Oil Products/Priority Aviation/No. 24 sprint car. “We keep getting better and better each weekend. We had a few recent starts that we needed to shake off, but now we have some positive momentum on our side. All we can do now is take advantage of that momentum.”

Rico Abreu’s visit to Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday, March 15, was on pace to be flawless. After qualifying first within his group, and winning his respective heat race, Abreu moved on and finished sixth during the evening’s dash, thus allowing the St. Helena, Calif., native to start sixth on the feature grid.

While battling for a position well-inside the top-ten, Abreu made contact with fellow Californian, Tim Kaeding, on lap six. The contact resulted in Abreu coming to a stop, thus forcing the familiar No. 24 to restart at the tail of the field. Although frustrated, Abreu kept his composure and bounced back for a top-ten, ultimately crossing under the final checkers tenth in the running order.

In a similar scenario on Saturday at Stockton Dirt Track, Abreu was on the tail end of charge from 14th to sixth when he lost the handle and spun in turns three and four. Luckily, Abreu never lost momentum nor came to a stop, allowing the former World of Outlaws winner to blend back into the running order with only half of the laps in the books. Abreu recovered quickly, eventually moving ahead to finish sixth at the final checkers.

Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing will continue their 2019 campaign with another round of World of Outlaws West Coast Swing action, this time visiting Ocean Speedway just south of San Jose on Friday, March 22, followed by a stop at Placerville Speedway on Saturday, March 23.

Donny Schatz consistent through Stockton, chips away at Pittman’s point lead

Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 8th (10th)

2019 World of Outlaws Championship Standings: 2nd – 984 points (4 points behind current leader, Daryn Pittman)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (March 18, 2019) – Entering the weekend, Donny Schatz was 20 points behind Daryn Pittman in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship standings. With the weekend events now complete, the Fargo, North Dakota-native is now only four points behind Pittman, well within striking distance as another round of the World of Outlaws’ West Coast Swing looms.

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, joined the Greatest Show On Dirt during visits to Silver Dollar Speedway and Stockton Dirt Track during the recent weekend. Although the defending World of Outlaws champion was unable to earn himself a dash starting position during the weekend pair, Schatz persevered, advancing a grand total of 11 positions in two races while increasing his top-ten streak to seven consecutive in 2019.

Impressive enough, Schatz’ top-ten streak was put to the test on Friday night at Silver Dollar Speedway. Forced to start on the inside of row seven after finishing fourth during his respective heat race, Schatz did not hesitate, but instead methodically pick his way through the front half of field. When the dust settled, the Silver Dollar start ended up being the highlight of Schatz’ weekend, rallying from 13th to finish fourth in 35 laps.

Although the climb was shorter, Schatz did advance two positions on Saturday at Stockton Dirt Track, moving ahead from the outside of row five to finish eighth on a choppy, but quick racing surface. Schatz’ top-ten was set up by a third place finish during heat race action.

“It was an interesting weekend, to say the least. Despite track conditions and starting positions not in our favor, we salvaged some solid finishes. My team makes all of that possible,” Donny Schatz said, who is seeking an 11th World of Outlaws championship in 2019. “We’ll do whatever we can to get ourselves up front this weekend at Ocean and Placerville.”

Up next on the schedule, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing will continue their West Coast Swing with the World of Outlaws and visit Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway, respectively, on Friday and Saturday, March 22 & 23. Schatz finished sixth during his most recent start at Ocean Speedway in 2016, advancing from 18th to do so, claiming Hard Charger Award honors in the process.

Although he finished one position lower than where he started, Schatz highlighted his most recent trek to Placerville with a tenth place finish in September.
