Kittanning’s Zambotti refuses to settle, aims big in ninth Pro Stock season

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

KITTANNING, Pa. (February 24, 2021) – Celebrating nine seasons behind the wheel of a stock car in 2021, dropping the handlebars for the final time in 2012 before planting himself beneath a roll cage the following spring, “The Body” Joey Zambotti is setting his aim high for the new year, working hard to surpass a recent season win total that equaled five Pro Stock victories across two tracks, one of which the season opener at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Maryland.

Zambotti, a second-generation racer out of Kittanning, Pennsylvania, has been on a steady rise since he made the transition from two wheels to four. The former motocross pro licensee adapted quickly to the style change and now owns 26 wins in the Pro Stock division, earning his first during action at the famed Lernerville Speedway in 2014. 

A mere 20-mile jaunt from Zambotti Racing headquarters, Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, has been Zambotti’s Friday night home since commencing his short track career, ultimately resulting in track championship contention on a consistent basis. The 33-year-old has finished no worse than fourth in the final standings since 2016 highlighted with back-to-back third-place finishes in 2019 and 2020.

Maintaining consistency and winning races has always been a priority, but securing a track championship is the ultimate end goal. 

“It’s been a fun ride the last few years. To be a contender on a regular basis, especially against a talented field that we’re up against every Friday night at Lernerville, says a lot about this team. I wouldn’t be in this position without the loving support from my family and crew. They’ve been with me every step of the way and I wouldn’t want it any other way,” Joey Zambotti said, who owns and operates Zambotti Collision in Kittanning in addition to maintaining an active race team. “We want to win a championship. I think we have what it takes to be on top at the end of the season. A mistake here and there can eliminate those chances pretty quick, but If we can stay clear of those hiccups, we’ll be right where we need to be.”

In addition to regular appearances at Lernerville Speedway aboard his familiar No. 948, Zambotti will also participate in select RUSH Late Model events during the 2021 season, as well as help his son activate his kart career. 

“Earning a Lernerville title is going to be our main focus, that’s for sure,” Zambotti continued when discussing his plans. “But, I want to make some crate late model starts, too. We’ll take a look at the local and regional RUSH calendar and race when it makes the most sense for us. My oldest son, Joey, is old enough to race karts this year, so I want to help him get started in that. It’s all about family.”

After a pair test and tune dates on April 2 and April 9, Lernerville Speedway will begin its season with Fab4 weekly competition on Friday, April 16. Zambotti’s Lernerville calendar will extend through Friday, September 17, when the final points race will be contested.

“We still have some work to do, but we’re excited to get started. It’s going to be a fun year.”

Jesse Forcey continues to build profound reputation in automotive industry

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (February 15, 2021) – Since launching the precursor to Octane Customs, Octane Graphics, in 2010, Jesse Forcey has been on the rise, and although the one-man-band out of Monongahela, Pennsylvania, has been focusing primarily on freelance graphic design and commercial vehicle wraps and graphics over the last ten years, the Clearfield County-native has since morphed his focus and now holds an entirely new repertoire. 

With access to car and truck aftermarket products, as well as motorcycle, side-by-side, and ATV accessories, the recently rebranded Octane Customs is now a one-stop-shop for all on-road and off-road enthusiasts. From lift kits, window tint, and high performance lubricants, to exhaust components, wheels/tires, and custom LED light bars, Octane will mediate the sale and install the product; it’s that easy.

Despite the massive increase in available products and services, Forcey did not leave his bread and butter behind. Instead, Forcey pushed his design talent and graphic techniques to an even larger audience, stretching his focus to adjacent markets. One such market is the food industry where Octane Customs offers complete design and vinyl wrapping of food trucks and trailers. 

In addition to his commercial success, completing full-on design and wrap packages for many of Greater Pittsburgh’s larger fleets, Forcey also makes Octane Customs’ services well-known within the local racing community, designing and manufacturing complete wraps for teams across multiple short track divisions. Jared Miley, one of Western Pennsylvania’s more recent super late model successes and former Lernerville Speedway and Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway (PPMS) champion, is one of Forcey’s more recognized motorsports clients, as well as two-time PPMS RUSH Late Model champion, Ben Policz. 

“I just want to make myself readily available to anyone who needs help,” Jesse Forcey explained, owner and founder of Octane Customs. “I love to design and I love to work with vinyl, but with so many customers asking me ‘can you do this’ or ‘can you do that,’ I figured it was time to stretch my wings and take advantage of the opportunity to fulfill those needs. I’ve been fortunate to build a great customer base in and around Pittsburgh. My goal is to build on those successes and hopefully maintain a solid reputation.

“It’s been my goal from the start to provide a reliable service and a quality product,” Forcey added. “There’s no better advertising than a positive review and a referral.”

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

APOLLO, Pa. (February 11, 2021) – An announcement four months in the making, Apollo, Pennsylvania’s Sye Lynch is pleased to unveil his plans for a full-on racing campaign during the 2021 season, made possible by long-time partner and dedicated supporter, Mosites Motorsports, as well as an all-new assembly of marketing partners including Missouri-based Fischer Body Shop and the Odessa, Texas headquartered Hollywood Blasting and Coating, made possible by Josh Baughman and Baughman Motorsports.

Together, Sye Lynch, Sye Lynch Racing and his partners plan to enter upwards of 80 events during the new year, highlighting their schedule with some of sprint car racing’s premier showcases including Eldora Speedway’s Kings Royal and Knoxville Raceway’s coveted Knoxville Nationals. 

“I couldn’t be more excited,” Sye Lynch said, a third generation racer out of Apollo, Pennsylvania. “To have Fischer Body Shop and Baughman Motorsports join our efforts at Sye Lynch Racing is pretty special. We’ve been working on these plans for over four months. I’m not sure how we were able to keep it a secret this long, but it’s out there now. I’m ready to get started.” 

Although an exact schedule layout for Sye Lynch and Sye Lynch Racing is still in the building process, Lynch hopes to unveil a complete schedule within the next few weeks.

“We are still working out the logistics side of things,” Lynch continued. “I hope to have a complete plan of attack released in the coming weeks. I just want to thank all of my partners for their dedication and support. Our goal is to go out every night and put on a show. I’m confident we have what it takes to do that.”

Although stepping back from competition from a full-time basis, Josh Baughman, who finished seventh in the 2020 All Star Circuit of Champions driver standings, will also return to action in 2021. The Odessa, Texas-native will compete in 10-15 events during the upcoming season; an exact schedule will be determined in the near future. 

“We are excited about this new venture with Sye Lynch,” Josh Baughman explained. “He’s a talented kid with the hunger to win and we’re proud to be affiliated. I think it’s safe to say that we are all anxious to get the year underway.” 

Sye Lynch and Sye Lynch Racing would like to thank all of their marketing partners including: Mosites Motorsports, Fischer Body Shop, Hollywood Blasting and Coating, Baughman Motorsports, All American Framers, ADV Depot, DieZel Snow and Landscape, Blair Construction, Grumpy’s Pizza, Ultra Lite Brakes, AL Driveline, Frankland Rear Ends, Simpson Racing Products.

Rico Abreu Racing welcomes back Derek Snyder of Self Made Racing and Sweeney Cars as major partner for 2021 season

ST. HELENA, California (February 9, 2021) – Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu Racing (RAR) are pleased to announce that Derek Snyder of Self Made Racing and Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC will return to the RAR No. 24 as a prime partner in 2021. Snyder’s involvement with Rico Abreu Racing extends three seasons, accomplishing six victories during their most recent campaign including a $10,000 All Star Circuit of Champions score at Attica Raceway Park. 

Snyder, owner and founder of Self Made Racing, as well as the executive manager and partner of Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC in Boardman, Ohio, boasts a long and dedicated history in open wheel competition. In addition to Rico Abreu Racing, Snyder is a major partner and supporter of Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing, as well as the promoter of the annual Justin Snyder’s Salute to the Troops, honoring Derek’s late brother. The event, scheduled for Sunday, July 11, will be conducted at Sharon Speedway and will once again feature Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions. 

“I couldn’t be more excited to extend my relationship with Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu Racing,” Derek Snyder said. “Rico is a great ambassador to the sport of sprint car racing and he does everything he can to promote his partners at the highest level. We have some fun things in the works again this season. Last year, I was fortunate enough to have Rico and Danny Dietrich visit our Sweeney location for a meet and greet. We want to do that again in 2021. I’m excited for another great year.”

Although Abreu’s current focus is on the Works Limited 57 sprint car, the St. Helena, California-native will return to the driver’s seat of his own RAR No. 24 in April commencing a traditional “true outlaw” schedule through the midwest and northeast. 

“I want to thank Derek Snyder for believing in my team. To fly the Self Made Racing colors is pretty special and I’m excited for the opportunity to do it again in 2021,” Rico Abreu added. “We have a lot in store for the coming year. We are aiming high, and with the added help from people like Derek Snyder, our goals are never out of reach.”

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

Although just missing the top-ten during each of DIRTcar Nationals highlights, the Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native and 2021 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year contender proved his ability to power through a field.

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: 8th | 264 points [32 points behind championship leader, Logan Schuchart]

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (February 8, 2021) – It was a long week in the Sunshine State for ten-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Donny Schatz, but the Fargo, North Dakota-native capitalized on the opportunity to compete and secured three podium finishes in a combined five All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws starts, scoring a victory in the process during All Star action at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday, February 2. 

The victory, earning $6,000 in the process, was accomplished from the second row, taking the lead from Justin Peck on lap 15 before withstanding late-race charges by Ian and Kerry Madsen, respectively. The win was Schatz’ second of the 2021 season, as well as his second on the year against the traveling All Stars, etching his first mark in the win column – an $8,000 accomplishment – during action at Screven Motor Speedway on January 29.

“I haven’t been to East Bay since 1993 or 1994. This track is really neat, but it’s also very tricky. You have to respect the place,” Donny Schatz said. “The surface can have some slick spots, as well as some wet sports. The dynamic of the track changes so much. I went wherever I had to go.”

Four nights of DIRTcar Nationals competition, two against the All Stars on February 3-4, and two against the Greatest Show On Dirt on February 5 and 7, equaled three top-ten results for Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing, kicking-off their extended weekend at Volusia Speedway Park with runner-up and seventh-place finishes against the All Stars. The runner-up result was nearly a victory for Schatz, but a big move by Logan Schuchart with two circuits remaining forced the ten-time Outlaws champ to settle with one spot lower on the podium. Schatz led laps 13-22, getting by Brad Sweet to take command initially before surrendering the top spot.

Knocked down to three events due to weather interference on Saturday, Schatz’ first WoO starts of the season were complete with success, as well as heartache, first earning a third-place result to ignite the season, officially, on Friday, February 5. The driver of the Carquest Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Sage Fruit/Digital Ally/Advance Auto Parts/Rush Truck Centers/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car was forced to do things the hard way, eventually climbing 15 spots to secure his place on the podium, as well as the evening’s Hard Charger Award.

Donny Schatz was well on his way to a victory on Sunday night at Volusia when disaster struck, forcing the familiar No. 15 entry to go pitside with only two circuits remaining. 

A heat race runner-up finish and a dash win allowed Schatz to start the DIRTcar Nationals sprint car finale from the pole and that is exactly where he stayed for 28 circuits, all before internal issues forced Schatz to go to the work area. The team fixed the issue quickly and returned, but time was short; Schatz finished 15th. 

A trip through Georgia and Alabama stands ahead for Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing. The World of Outlaws schedule will take the Greatest Show On Dirt to Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Georgia, on Friday, February 12, followed by a stop at the Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Alabama, on Saturday, February 13. Schatz will enter the pair eighth in the current championship standings, trailing championship leader, Logan Schuchart, by 32 markers.

Danny Dietrich caps Florida visit with podium against Outlaws at Volusia

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (February 8, 2021) – Danny Dietrich’s results in the Sunshine State were just as impressive as the fields were competitive, capping his five-day/four-race campaign during Volusia Speedway Park’s annual DIRTcar Nationals with a trio of top-ten finishes, two of which inside the top-five, ultimately ending the trip with a runner-up performance against the Greatest Show On Dirt on Sunday, February 7. 

The Sunday night podium put a lid on a near-perfect program for the former Lincoln Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, and Central PA sprint car champion, jump-starting the evening with the fastest time during qualifying time trials, all before winning his respective heat race. A third-place result during the evening’s dash allowed Dietrich to start on the inside of row two for the $10,000-to-win main event.

Before securing his podium with the World of Outlaws, Dietrich launched his DIRTcar Nationals efforts with a pair starts against the All Star Circuit of Champions on Wednesday and Thursday, February 3-4. Two A-Main starts equaled back-to-back top-tens for the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native, securing his first top-ten with an impressive rally from row nine to finish ninth on Wednesday.

The following evening, “Double-D” collected his first top-five of the season with a fifth-place outcome after starting third. Dietrich faded to seventh after the initial start, eventually recovering two spots to secure his top-five statistic. Impressive enough, Dietrich was forced to complete an engine change before his respective heat race; he would go on to win the heat in dominating fashion.

“What a trip. I can’t say enough about this team right now,” Danny Dietrich said, 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 Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “We get better and better every time we make the trip to Volusia. We were quick right out of the box this trip and that says a lot about the team’s readiness and dedication. I’m excited to see what the rest of the year has in store for us. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Initial plans suggested that Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing would make the trip to Georgia and Alabama and join the World of Outlaws during starts at Dixie Speedway and Talladega Short Track, respectively, but now the team will venture back to Pennsylvania and prepare for the upcoming Icebreaker at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, February 20. Dietrich is the defending Icebreaker champion.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (February 4, 2021) – Tony Stewart and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing made the long haul from Arizona to the east coast during the recent week, eventually landing in the Peach State where the All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 kicked-off their inaugural Sugarlands Shine Southern Tour presented by Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia, on January 29-30. 

Joining over 30 All Stars and touring Outlaws, Stewart’s weekend at Screven resulted in one main event start, eventually translating a ninth-row push-off into a 13th-place finish, ultimately tying for the evening’s Hard Charger Award. A fifth-place performance during his respective heat race allowed Stewart to qualify for Friday evening’s $8,000-to-win main event. 

Unfortunately, Stewart’s luck ran thin during Screven’s $10,000-to-win Winter Freeze finale on Saturday. The three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion cut a right rear tire while racing in a transfer position during the evening’s B-Main; “Smoke” was scored 12th. 

After a designated travel day on Sunday, January 31, and a weather related cancellation on Monday, February 1, Tony Stewart and the Rush Truck Centers/Advance Auto Parts/Curb Records/Ford Performance/Digital Ally/Sage Fruit/FloRacing/Absolute Automation and Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Mobil 1/Carquest Auto Parts/No. 14 team returned to competition with a visit to East Bay Raceway Park near Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday, February 2. The decision to join the All Stars at the “Clay by the Bay” resulted in Stewart’s third top-ten appearance of the season, maintaining a spot inside the top-ten to finish eighth after starting fifth on the feature grid. 

Tony Stewart’s upcoming open wheel agenda has not yet been determined. Fans are encouraged to keep alert online, as well as on social media, for any and all updates pertaining to Stewart’s future plans.
