Smoke earns top-five finish at Hendry County to open 2019 sprint car season

Dates: Friday & Saturday, January 25 & 26, 2019
Event: Snow Free Winter Nationals
Series: United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour

Tony Stewart A-Main Finishes (Start):
Friday: 3rd (6th)
Saturday: Cancelled/Weather

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (January 28, 2019) – Despite the weekend being cut short due to Mother Nature, Tony Stewart successfully kicked off his 2019 winged sprint car campaign in the Sunshine State, joining the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) Outlaw Thunder Tour for the Snow Free Winter Nationals at Hendry (Fla.) Motorsports Park.

Smoke, a three-time winner with the national-level 360 sprint car series in 2018, finished third to kick off his 2019 season, advancing three positions after starting sixth on the feature grid.

“It definitely feels good to be back in a sprint car,” Tony Stewart explained, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Rush Truck Centers/Ford Performance/Curb Records/Sage Fruit/Absolute Automation & Security/No. 14 sprint car. “We have a lot of racing left this month. We were happy to make the trip to Hendry County to get some laps before we join the All Stars at Bubba Raceway Park next weekend.”

Wasting little time advancing his way through the feature field, Stewart climbed two positions at Hendry County before the completion of lap one. By lap 11, Smoke was in a heated battle for third, actually making accidental contact with Mark Smith during his battle for the podium spot. As a result, Smith was forced to go to the tail of the field after spinning to a stop; Smoke inherited the position.

Although forced to work on a narrow racing surface, the battle for the top two spots continued on, actually molding into a three-way, nose-to-tail chase for the lead during the final circuits. Despite his efforts, Smoke would settle for third behind Davie Franek and eventual winner, Danny Smith.

Up next on the schedule, Tony Stewart and Tony Stewart Racing will continue their Florida venture with a visit to Bubba Raceway Park, joining the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 for the annual Winter Nationals. The three-day, All Star segment of the Winter Nationals will begin on Thursday, January 31.

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PENNDEL, Pa. (January 26, 2019) – Brett Michalski and Brett Michalski Motorsports will begin the 2019 season in less than a month, kicking things off with the annual Icebreaker 30 at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, February 23. The Pennsylvania lidlifter is just one of nearly 50 events on Michalski’s 2019 agenda, using Lincoln Speedway as the focal point while mixing in starts at a handful of other Central Pennsylvania and New Jersey facilities.

In addition to a full Lincoln Speedway schedule, Michalski will hit and miss many of the region’s more distinguished events including starts against the World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions. Major events on Michalski’s schedule include the Williams Grove Speedway National Open, Port Royal Speedway’s Tuscarora 50, five Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek dates, Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic, and the historic Labor Day Classic at the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace.’

“We are excited about our schedule. Although we plan to keep Lincoln Speedway our main focus, we have a nice mixture of other races in our plans,” Brett Michalski explained, the 2018 Lincoln Speedway Rookie of the Year. “We’ve been hard at work getting everything prepared for the new year. I’m ready to get started.”

If all goes according to plan, Michalski will add more events to his schedule as the season permits.

“There are a lot of people who make a schedule like this possible for us,” Michalski continued. “All of our partners play an important role. We certainly wouldn’t be here without them.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing unveil 2019 schedule

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing unveil 2019 schedule

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (January 19, 2019) – Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will put their experience and competitiveness to the test in 2019, unveiling a schedule comprised of 110 nights of competition, 45 of which during All Star Circuit of Champions or World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series competition. Dietrich, a ten-time winner during action in 2018, will launch the new year with a trip to the Sunshine State, ready to do battle with the All Stars and World of Outlaws during a combined eight events between January 31 and February 10.

The bulk of Dietrich’s schedule will begin at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on February 23.

“It took some time to put this schedule together. As usual, we’ll be spending a lot of time in our own backyard, but we also plan to travel some,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Sweeney Cars, Pace Performance, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. “A few things are going to be different, but it’s business as usual for us. We’re ready to get started.”

Continuing a recent tradition, perhaps the most grueling segment of Dietrich’s 2019 schedule is the middle section of June through the first week of July when the Gettysburg native will take on the first seven nights of Ohio Sprint Speedweek, followed by nine straight nights of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek. Although not in consecutive fashion, only seven days separate his partial Ohio Sprint Speedweek schedule (June 14-20) from his Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek schedule (June 28-July 6).

Other major plans for Dietrich include revisiting Mansfield Motor Speedway for the $100,000-to-win Sprint Car World Championship, joining the All Star Circuit of Champions during a trio of New York stops in early June, entering a trio of 410/360 doubleheaders in Central Pennsylvania, and potentially revisiting The Dirt Track at Charlotte for the World Finals in early November. Without saying, Dietrich will join the All Stars and World of Outlaws during all events in Central Pennsylvania.

“I can’t thank Gary Kauffman and everyone enough for making a schedule like this possible,” Dietrich continued. “We are lucky enough to be associated with a lot of great people, Derek (Snyder) from Sweeney and Pace included. We are excited to have him play a major role within our race team. I’m pumped to see what we can do.”

Fans are reminded that 2019 Danny Dietrich apparel is now available. Purchases can be made at www.dannydietrich.com, as well as at the track.

Brian Montieth will pilot TQ Midget in Atlantic City for Michalski/Franchetta

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PENNDEL, Pa. (January 14, 2019) – Seven-time Lincoln Speedway track champion, Brian Montieth, will put his open wheel experience to the test on January 25 & 26, as the Phoenixville, Pa., native plans to enter the Atlantic City Indoor Midget Car Race for Brett Michalski Motorsports, Tom Franchetta, Sr. and Tom Franchetta, Jr.

Montieth, a Central Pennsylvania ace in the 410 sprint car ranks, will take the reins of the Michalski-owned TQ Midget and attempt to tame Boardwalk Hall for a first-ever indoor racing triumph for the Pennsylvania-based motorsports team.

“We are thrilled to have Brian Montieth drive for us in Atlantic City. He’s an exciting guy on dirt, so I’m sure he will be just as exciting on concrete,” Brett Michalski explained. “With all of my focus pointed toward our sprint car team and preparing for the 2019 season, I’ve decided to step away from any indoor racing potential. Brian was kind enough to agree to race for us. I’m sure he’ll do a great job. I’m excited to see how things unfold.”

Brian Montieth claimed his seventh Lincoln Speedway sprint car title in 2018, notching six marks in the win column to help pave his path toward the overall track championship. It was Montieth’s seventh track title in 11 years, claiming high honors in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2015, 2017 and 2018. In fact, Montieth is now third on Lincoln Speedway’s all-time championship list trailing Steve Smith who owns nine and the legendary Fred Rahmer who owns 11.

“He has a stout resume,” Michalski added about Montieth. “Being a regular competitor at Lincoln, I had the opportunity to spend some time with Brian and get to know him, eventually building a solid friendship. It’s kinda neat to be the Lincoln Rookie of the Year and join forces with the champion. We’re privileged to have him.”

“We certainly wouldn’t be in this position without the help from the Franchetta family,” Michalski continued. “Tom Franchetta, Sr. built the car, with the help of Lou Ciccone. Tom Franchetta, Jr. has been a long time friend. It’s a great group to be around.”

Brett Michalski eager to begin 2019 season after earning Lincoln Rookie honors

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PENNDEL, Pa. (January 7, 2018) – Brett Michalski learned a lot during his first, full season in the 410 sprint car ranks, and although his experience was limited and the competition was high, the 360 sprint car transplant built enough momentum and speed to be competitive in the Pigeon Hills and eventually clinch Rookie of the Year honors at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway.

Snagging a heat race victory in the process, Michalski’s season at Lincoln Speedway ended eleventh in the final standings, 565 points behind Kyle Moody for a spot inside the top ten. The Penndel, Pa., native finished 13th during his final points start of the season.

Michalski, a United Racing Club (URC) graduate who finished eighth and 11th, respectively, in the final URC standings in 2016 and 2017, will follow similar footsteps in 2019 and continue to make Lincoln Speedway his weekly home, also making occasional visits to the Port Royal Speedway ‘Speed Palace’ in addition to regulars visits to BAPS Motor Speedway.

“It was a fun year for our team. We have a lot of people to thank. They know who they are and we wouldn’t be in this position without their hard work and dedication,” Brett Michalski explained. “Racing in Central Pennsylvania is highly competitive. It’s the best weekly competition in the country. Racing at that level is only going to make us better as a team, and me better as a driver. We’re pretty pumped to get the new year underway.”

The off-season is a short season on the Central Pennsylvania circuit. Action is scheduled begin with the annual Icebreaker at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, February 23. Michalski kicked off his 2018 campaign in similar fashion, ending the $4,000-to-win, afternoon program 13th in the running order.

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.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will release a complete schedule in the coming weeks. Fans are encouraged to stay alert via social media, as well as at www.fullyinjected.com and www.dannydietrich.com.
