Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports cap season with productive weekend at Gas City Speedway

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 25, 2021) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports did their best to cap their 2021 season on a positive note, and a positive note is what they achieved, ultimately turning a pair of Gas City Speedway starts into a pair of top-ten finishes. 

Dubbed the Fall Festival of Speed, Gas City’s doubleheader and season finale was unexpectedly transitioned into a one-day program, as foul Friday weather forced all of the Friday features to be conducted on Saturday afternoon. Despite the fact, Westfall performed well against a stacked pit area and finished seventh during each of the Fall Festival outings, highlighted by an impressive rally from 13th during the Friday feature.

With the team’s 2021 calendar officially concluded, Westfall, driver of Ray Marshalls’ Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/”Bumblebee Express,” will head straight into the off-season, set to tear down and rebuild while keeping his eyes fixated on the new year. Although the Pleasant Hill, Ohio-native was two victories shy of matching his 2020 season total, Westfall’s success rate and consistency was every bit as impressive, padding his 2021 highlight reel with a Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) championship, as well as two victories in the non-wing ranks, one of which a BOSS win in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Creating a near-perfect weekend, the evening prior to his Pittsburgh victory, Westfall was second at Lernerville Speedway.

In addition to his triumph at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, Westfall and Ray Marshall were victorious at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on Friday, April 9.

“It was good to end our season on a positive note. Heading into the off-season with some positive momentum is always important…it keeps you motivated,” Westfall said, now a two-time BOSS champion. “I just can’t say it enough…a big thanks to Ray Marshall and the entire team for making a season like ours possible. Ray’s love for sprint cars is what allows us to be out here racing every weekend. I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without Ray’s hard work and dedication. We’re not exactly sure of a plan for next year…time will tell.”

“Matt and the team did a fantastic job this season…I’m proud of everyone,” Ray Marshall added. “We believe in Matt and we believe in what this team is capable of achieving. I don’t think we’re too sure on a plan for 2022 yet, but we’ll see soon enough.”

Upcoming plans for Westfall and Ray Marshall will be determined in the coming weeks. Fans are expected to keep alert online, as well as on social media, for any news pertaining to Ray Marshall Motorsports.

Oklahoma, Texas, North Carolina road trips to conclude Zearfoss’ Rookie Outlaw campaign

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

JONESTOWN, Pa. (October 25, 2021) – The “Jonestown Jet” Brock Zearfoss is certainly enjoying his first year as a full-time World of Outlaws competitor, and although only four starts remain on the 2021 schedule, there is still a lot to do. The former Posse regular, who is currently ninth in the Series driver championship, is still on the hunt for his first-ever victory as a full-time Outlaw, which would ultimately pad a season stat sheet that already includes 21 top-ten finishes. With less than a handful of starts remaining, what better time to achieve an Outlaw victory than during a two-day swing through America’s cowboy country.

Zearfoss, driver of the Brock Zearfoss Racing, Moose’s LZ Bar & Grill, Heavy Equipment, Loaders & Parts Inc., C&D Rigging Inc., Meckley’s Limestone Products, Berkebile Oil Company, Klick Lewis Cars, J.P. Adamsky Trucking, X-1 Race Cars, Simpson Racing Products, KX3 Racewear, BK Titanium, Blud Lubricants, AL Driveline, Bruce’s Speed Shop, No. 3Z sprint car, will continue his 2021 World of Outlaws campaign with visits to Lawton Speedway and Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Friday and Saturday, October 29-30. A $30,000 potential, the visit to Lawton, Oklahoma, will award $10,000, followed by the $20,000-to-win Texas Outlaw Nationals at Devil’s Bowl.

Frustrating in some respect, Zearfoss’ most recent World of Outlaws start resulted in a 20th-place score at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, on Friday, October 22. The Jonestown, Pennsylvania-native started ninth on the evening grid, but an eventual trip to the work area would negate all momentum earned.

“It can be frustrating, but it’s all a part of the process. This team never gives up and we’ll continue to push through until the end of the season,” Brock Zearfoss said, a former World of Outlaws winner but prior to his full-time season. “We’ve learned a lot this year and that’s probably the most important part. We have the potential and the equipment to be competitive and win races, but racing with the best in the world every night forces you to be even better than your potential. We’re going to head into these last few races with the ambition to win.”

Once Zearfoss concludes his two-day stint through Oklahoma and Texas, the former Port Royal Speedway champion will turn his truck east and head for The Tar Heel State, set to conclude his World of Outlaws Rookie campaign with the World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on November 4-6.

Rico Abreu back on top in Friday night Trophy Cup preliminary

Dates: Thursday through Saturday, October 21st-23rd
Event: Abreu Vineyards Trophy Cup 27 presented by Rudeen Racing
Series: Open 360 Sprint Car Event
Track: Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway (Tulare, California)
Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start):
Thursday: DNQ
Friday: 1st (6th)
Saturday: 22nd (18th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (October 25, 2021) – Rico Abreu’s run of success in Thunderbowl Raceway’s Trophy Cup is certainly impressive. Not only did the St. Helena, California-native sweep the entire program in 2019, winning all three main events for a total winner’s share exceeding $25,000, but Abreu continued that Trophy Cup success again in 2021, this time winning Friday’s preliminary from sixth on the grid. 

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Self Made Racing/Salty’s BBQ/XYZ Machining/No. 24 sprint car, made his presence known early in Friday’s 30-lap prelim and was in a position to pounce by halfway. An eventual caution on lap 25 set up Abreu’s winning move, powering by Mitchell Faccinto during the ensuing restart. The win, a $4,000 share, also gave Abreu some redemption, as the now three-time sprint car winner in 2021 was unable to qualify for the Trophy Cup preliminary feature just one night prior. 

Unfortunately, bad luck was served yet again during Saturday’s Trophy Cup finale. After starting 18th by way of an invert determined by Trophy Cup points leading up to the finale, Abreu was involved in a crash and was unable to finish; he was scored 22nd.

As mentioned, Abreu’s Trophy Cup preliminary victory bumped his season win total to three, adding his Thunderbowl Raceway triumph to a list that already includes victories in Eldora Speedway’s 4-Crown Nationals and Knoxville Raceway’s Hard Knox. 

“I love the Trophy Cup. Things didn’t end how we wanted, but we put together a great night on Friday and I’m proud of the team. This Rowdy Energy car was on rails, for sure,” Rico Abreu said. “We still have some racing left on our plate. The plan is to work hard and hopefully put ourselves in a position to get a few more wins.”

An upcoming schedule for Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing has yet to be determined. Early indications suggest NARC/ King of the West starts at Keller Auto Speedway and Kern County Raceway Park on October 29-30.

Schatz second in Lakeside visit, elevates to third in Outlaw driver standings

Date: Friday, October 22nd
Event: FVP Platinum Battery Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kansas)
Donny Schatz A-Main Finish (Start): 2nd (5th)

2021 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championship Standings: Third | 9890 points (158 points behind championship leader, Brad Sweet)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 25, 2021) – Despite only one event on the weekend schedule, a quick, Friday night visit to Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz remained focused and determined, eventually cashing in for his 43rd top-five finish of the 2021 season, forced to battle by Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing teammate, Kerry Madsen, in the process. 

Schatz, 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/TicketSmarter/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 sprint car, finished second to solidify his top-five statistic, climbing ahead three spots after starting fifth on the feature grid. The ten-time World of Outlaws champion was a threat for much of the 30-lap distance, actually pressuring KCP Racing’s Gio Scelzi for second before Scelzi gained control over race-long leader, Kerry Madsen. Scelzi made his winning move on lap 27, utilizing a single-file restart to slide by the “Madman.” Schatz ultimately mimicked the Fresno, California-native to also sneak by Madsen before the finish.

A series of cautions would negate most of Schatz’ late race momentum.

“I was hoping we’d get more traffic, but the yellows kept coming,” Schatz said, who is now third in the World of Outlaws driver championship chase. “Gio was so good on those restarts, it’s just the way it played out. The guys did a great job and we made the right adjustments.”

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will head south for a Halloween weekend doubleheader at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Friday, October 29, and Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Saturday, October 30. After that, the 2021 season concludes with the NGK/NTK World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on November 4-6.

Madsen scores podium for Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing at Lakeside Speedway

Date: Friday, October 22nd
Event: FVP Platinum Battery Showdown
Series: World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series
Track: Lakeside Speedway (Kansas City, Kansas)
Kerry Madsen A-Main Finish (Start): 3rd (2nd)

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (October 25, 2021) – The “Madman” Kerry Madsen was well on his way to a fourth World of Outlaws victory of the 2021 season Friday night at Lakeside Speedway, that until a late-race caution with 26 laps complete negated Madsen’s seemingly inevitable triumph. 

Like so many restarts prior, Madsen, driver of the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/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/TicketSmarter/J&J Auto Racing/No. 14 sprint car, did his best to outrun second-place running Gio Scelzi, but the Fresno, California-native was able to outwit Madsen and take command on lap 27, sliding the “Madman” in turn three before hanging on for a $10,000 share.

In the meantime, TSR teammate and ten-time World of Outlaws champion, Donny Schatz, was also applying some pressure, as he was next to sneak by Madsen before the finish.

There were additional cautions prior to lap 27, but all were not an issue for Madsen.

“It’s unfortunate for this Tony Stewart team,” Madsen admitted. “We had the best car and I had the opportunity to close it out, but just didn’t do it. Being disappointed with a third-place finish means you’re doing something right, though.”

Continuing action with the Greatest Show On Dirt, Madsen and the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will head south for a Halloween weekend doubleheader at Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Friday, October 29, and Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Saturday, October 30. After that, the 2021 season concludes with the NGK/NTK World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on November 4-6.

Westfall crowned BOSS champion; Gas City doubleheader ahead

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 18, 2021) – With Mother Nature interfering with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) season finale scheduled for Saturday at Waynesfield Raceway Park, the Ohio-based, non-wing touring group was forced to officially conclude their 2021 campaign with a cancellation, and although Series action ended on a sour note, it led to celebration for some, as Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports ultimately clinched their second BOSS championship in three years.

Padded by a victory at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on July 24, Westfall entered the final weekend of BOSS action with a 79-point lead, chased by Willow Branch, Indiana’s Isaac Chapple. The deficit would have been tough to overcome, but wet weather negated all chances. Even if Mother Nature would have spared the event at Waynesfield, Westfall’s recent momentum boost would have given the Buckeye an upper hand; the 2019 BOSS champ scored a podium finish in I-96 Speedway’s Roll the Dice on October 9.

“It feels good to get another BOSS championship. We didn’t want the season to end like it did, but we’ll take it and celebrate,” Westfall said, driver of Ray Marshall’s Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/”Bumblebee Express” sprint car. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall and the entire team enough for their hard work this season. I think we were in a position to win more than one BOSS race this year, but our consistency paid off and that’s what’s most important. We still have some starts left on our plate, so we’ll do what we can to end things on a winning note.”

Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with a two-day stop at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Friday and Saturday, October 22-23. Dubbed the Fall Festival of Speed, the Gas City season finale will feature two, full shows for the non-wing sprint cars awarding a combined $4,000 winner’s share; $2,000 on Friday and $2,000 on Saturday. 

Although Westfall is winless at Gas City in 2021, the Pleasant Hill, Ohio-native is certainly no stranger to the high paced quarter-mile, earning one victory in 2019, as well as another in 2020.

Abreu eyes Tulare’s Trophy Cup

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

ST. HELENA, Calif. (October 18, 2021) – Rico Abreu’s open wheel season is closing down rapidly, but the action is far from over.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Rowdy Energy/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Self Made Racing/XYZ Machining/Stadelhofer Construction/No. 24 sprint car, will continue his 2021 campaign with the Abreu Vineyards Trophy Cup 27 presented by Rudeen Racing at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway on Thursday through Saturday, October 21-23. Certainly a highlight on the West Coast, the three-day blockbuster will feature three complete programs each awarding $4,000 to the main event winner. The weekend’s overall points champion will receive an additional $15,000 bonus. 

No stranger to Tulare’s historic Trophy Cup, Abreu was the 2019 event champion, actually sweeping the entire three-day program to earn $26,000. Abreu’s history making Trophy Cup performance had never been accomplished before. He won main events from fifth, tenth, and 17th.

“We’re ready and excited…it’s the Trophy Cup,” Abreu said, a two-time feature winner in 2021, one of which occurring in Knoxville Raceway’s Hard Knox program during the annual Knoxville Nationals. “It’s been a pretty crazy season, but I can’t say enough about my guys. They work hard and I owe it all to them. The travel, the miles, the schedule…none of it is easy but they never complain. I think we have it in us to be in contention for another Trophy Cup win. That’s our goal.”

Despite most of his season’s successes taking shape throughout the Midwest, Abreu does have some recent high marks on the West Coast. During his most recent try, the St. Helena, California-native secured a pair of top-five appearances at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, one of which in the annual Cotton Classic featuring the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.

In addition to the aforementioned Hard Knox win, Abreu found his second victory of the season during Eldora’s annual 4-Crown Nationals, earning the All Star Circuit of Champions portion triumph for $6,000.

Westfall runner-up in I-96’s Roll the Dice; BOSS finale at Waynesfield next

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FOREST, Ohio (October 11, 2021) – Although the two-day blockbuster was ultimately cut to one, losing Friday’s opener to an unexpected visit from Mother Nature, Roll the Dice weekend at I-96 Speedway went on as planned welcoming the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) and Great Lakes Traditional Sprints (GLTS) for a full out brawl on Saturday, October 9. Westfall, pilot for Ray Marshall Motorsports and current BOSS Series point leader, participated in the highly-touted event and finished on the podium, just shy of his second BOSS victory of 2021.

Westfall, driver of the Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/”Bumblebee Express” No. 33M sprint car, finished second in the Roll the Dice finale, leading much of the main event before losing the top spot to eventual winner, Max Adams. 

A threat the entire evening, Westfall kicked-off the program with the seventh-fastest time during qualifying time trials, next transferring through his respective heat race to line up second on the feature grid.

“It feels good to be on the podium again. I think we were good enough to win…we just came up a little short,” Westfall said, who will work to clinch a second BOSS title in three seasons. “ I can’t thank Ray Marshall and the entire team enough for their hard work and support this season. I know we are good enough to compete with the best on any given night and we owe all of that to Ray. We’ll try to end the BOSS season on a high note Saturday at Waynesfield.”

Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will continue their 2021 campaign with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series season finale at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, on Saturday, October 16. The Forest, Ohio-based racing operation will enter Waynesfield with a 79-point advantage over Isaac Chapple in the BOSS title chase.
