PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY PROMOTER DON KAZARIAN WINS THE PROMOTER OF THE YEAR AWARD!

 

(Perris, CA, January 16, 2022) For the third time in seven seasons, Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian was voted “Non-Wing Promoter of the Year” in the annual Sprint Car Hall of Fame media poll. Kazarian, who won the same award in 2014 and 2015, shared this year’s honor after finishing in a tie with Matt Wood, who promoted USAC races at Huset’s Speedway in South Dakota and Northern California’s Placerville Speedway in 2021.


 

Shown here with Cory Kruseman in 2016, Don Kazarian was just voted Promoter of the Year for the third time in seven years.

 

This year’s award came after the track’s historic 25th anniversary season. After constructing the showcase racing facility in 1996, the Kazarian family is the only promoter the famous Riverside County half-mile clay oval has ever known.

 

“Thank you very much to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and to the media members who voted,” Kazarian said. “It is a big honor to win this award. However, it is not just about the promoter. It takes a team of hard workers, and we are extremely fortunate to have had the same core of employees at The PAS for a lot of years. It also takes a lot of help from sponsors and teams. Without them, we could not put on shows. We also have a wonderful group of fans. I should call the fans “family and friends.”  So many of them have been with us for an exceptionally long time. Everyone mentioned has played a significant role in the track winning this award and I want to thank all of them.”

 

The award comes after what was supposed to be the track’s 25th anniversary year of racing in 2020. However, that season was cut short after one race in March due to Covid. Things did not look much better at the start of the 2021 campaign as Covid intervened again and delayed the season opener by more than a month.

 

“Winning this award after what we went through in 2020 is extra special,” the past champion sprint car owner stated. “Not only us, but most tracks around the country had no idea how things would work out, how long everyone would be shut down, or if we would survive. Then we were shut down again for the start of the 2021 campaign. It was very scary, but once we got going, we had a great season.”

 

As always, Kazarian and the staff have stayed busy since the end of the 2021 campaign on November 20th. The track is poised and ready to open its 26th season of racing on March 5th when LKQ Pick Your Part will Present Night of Destruction. From that date through November 12th, there will be 27 nights of action. As usual sprint cars will lead the way with 10 dates starting with the annual “SoCal Showdown” featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink and Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Cars. The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprint Cars along with the Lucas Oil POWRi Southwest Lightning Sprints will also be in action at the PAS this year. The open-wheel season will conclude with three great nights of high-level competition in the 26th Annual Heimark/Anheuser Busch Budweiser Oval Nationals in November.

 

In addition to sprint cars, the PASSCAR Stock Car Series and Nights of Destruction will have full schedules in 2022. The entire schedule is printed below.

 

Two weeks ago, Kazarian was a guest on “The Racer Radio Show” and he discussed the 2022 schedule with host Dave Stall. For those who missed the show, you can listen to the replay at the following link http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/radio22/RACERRADIO220102.mp3

Lake View Announces 2022 Schedule, Purse Increases & Points Fund  

 

  • For Immediate Release  

 

LAKE VIEW, SC (January 14) – Lake View Motor Speedway owner Scott Tripp announced today increases to the purses in all divisions, a new points fund, and a huge 2022 schedule of racing.  

There is a real concern with the state of the current economy (inflation) and our racers costs going up that we needed to step up,” said Tripp.  Fuel to get to the track and tires to put on their race cars are two examples of rising prices beyond our control.  We’ve increased our purses and added the double points fund to help racers get a better return this year as the overall cost to race continues to go up.  A free pit pass for the winner after each race and a seasons free pit pass for the champion at the end of the year can really help out. It is our goal to help and grow dirt track racing in the Carolinas.”   

            Late Models will race for no less than $2,000 to win in 2022, while the 602 Open Wheel Modifieds, Street Stocks, and SCDRA Sport Compacts will race for $600 to win each week.  Winners in each of the five weekly divisions, including the Stock V8s, will be rewarded with one free pit pass for the next event that the respective winning driver is entered in.  And, each of the five weekly divisions will compete to be Pop Hahn’s King Of The Carolinas with a points fund totaling $20,000.  

            There will be two rounds to determine the overall King Of The Carolinas in each division consisting of championships for each half of the season.  The Round 1 Championship will be decided from March 19th until June $25th and will pay a total of $10,000 to the top five points finishers in each division.  Round 2 will be from August 6th to November 19th and will also pay $10,000 to the top five in points.  The best overall finisher in each class for the two championship will be crowned the King Of The Carolinas.  

            Super Late Models will compete three times at Lake View in 2022, with two stops for the Ultimate SLMs and the Carolina Clash SLMs on May 28th.  The Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Models will be at Lake View four times, along with stops by the Mid-East Modifieds, GM Performance 602 Late Models, Carolina Outlaw Super Streets, Carolina Sprint Tour, Mid-East Late Models, and Punisher Super Streets.  

            The SCDRA Sport Compacts will be at Lake View twice highlighted by the Beach Bash on April 23rd, which will be broadcast on a tape-delayed basis on MAVTV’s Short Track America and pay $5,000 to win.  On September 2-3, the Labor Day Spectacular will see the Mid-East Street Stocks race for $5,000 to win and the Stock V8s competing for $3,000 to win.  

            In addition, Lake View Motor Speedway will have new and improved lighting, a new parts supply shop selling tires, fuel, and parts, and the creation of a Powder Puff division for the ladies.  The majority of events will also again be streamed live on Racing America, the official streaming partner of Lake View Motor Speedway.   

The first event of the 2022 season at Lake View Motor Speedway will be the 2nd Annual South Of The Border Showdown featuring three nights of racing from February 3-5 for the DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds.  For more information, please “Like” Lake View Motor Speedway on Facebook, follow @LakeViewDirt on Twitter or by visiting lakeviewmotorspeedway.com.

Sweet Scores Top Spot in 2021 Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings!

Lonnie Wheatley, BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (January 7, 2022) – After surrendering the top spot in 2020, Brad Sweet recaptured the number one position in the 2021 edition of the Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings.

After earning his first number one ranking in 2020, Sweet ceded the top position to Kyle Larson.  But the Grass Valley, CA, bounced bac to recapture the top ranking in 2021 on the strength of 17 overall wins in 2021 including 16 in World of Outlaws competition as he raced to a third consecutive series championship.

The battle for the top ranking was a close one throughout with Donny Schatz, Carson Macedo and David Gravel all in the mix throughout.

Schatz, who earned the top spot for six consecutive years from 2013 to 2018 (the Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings began in 2013), ultimately finished off 2021 ranked second just 38 points off of Sweet’s lead pace.  While Schatz only posted five wins, he topped the charts in both top-fives (54) and top-tens (72).

Carson Macedo racked up a dozen wins along the way to post his top ranking of third just another 28 points back.  Macedo’s previous top ranking was tenth in both 2018 and 2019.

Gravel scored 14 feature wins to rank 14th, making it six consecutive years among the top five for the Connecticut racer.

Logan Schuchart finished among the top five for the third year in a row by rounding out the top five with Sheldon Haudenschild matching his previous best ranking of sixth that occurred in 2020.  Danny Dietrich extended his streak of top-ten rankings eighth in a row by finishing out the year in seventh with the Pennsylvania duo of Brent Marks and Anthony Macri in eighth and ninth, respectively.  All Star Circuit of Champions titlist Tyler Courtney rounded out the top ten as he broke into the top ten for the first time.

Sweet joined the trio of Brady Bacon (Non-Wing Sprint Cars), J.J. Hickle (Winged 360 Sprint Cars) and Buddy Kofoid (Midgets) as the top earners in the 2021 Open Wheel Power Rankings.

Huset's Speedway Increases Nightly Payout and Points Fund in 2022

 

 

 

Inside Line Promotions - BRANDON, S.D. (Jan. 7, 2022) - Huset's Speedway officials have found a way to make the 2022 season bigger and better.

 

 

 

 

 

The dirt oval will feature an updated 410ci winged sprint car payout structure. All Sunday night weekly events will pay $4,000 to win, $3,000 for second place, $2,500 for third and $500 to start the feature. Additionally, the season opener on May 8 and the Season Championship on Sept. 4 will pay $5,000 to win.

 

 

 

 

There will be 13 weekly full-points shows along with four World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series nights that will be show-up points only. The two-day Border Battle on June 17-18 at Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., will count toward the Huset's Speedway 410 championship. That makes a total of 19 races that encompass the Huset's Speedway 410 points fund, which pays $12,000 to win. A driver can miss one race and still be eligible for points fund money, which will be paid out at the banquet following the conclusion of the season.

 

 

 

 

 

The full 410 race program and point fund payouts are posted at http://www.HusetsSpeedway.com.

 

 

 

 

 

Also of note, Huset's Speedway officials are working on nightly contingency programs, including the $200 Nordica Warehouses Fast Time Award, heat race winners, the Hard Charger Award and the Clean Sweep Award.

 

 

 

 

 

The Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series nightly payout has been increased to $700 to win and $150 to start for the 2022 season. There will be two shows that pay $1,000 to win on Monday, May 30, and on Sunday, Aug. 28.

 

 

 

 

 

The 2022 Huset's Speedway Wyffels Hybrids RaceSaver Sprint Car Series champion will be awarded $1,000. The points fund can be found at http://www.HusetsSpeedway.com. Additionally, the Wyffels Cup champion, who is the driver earning the most points between Huset's Speedway and Jackson Motorplex, will receive $1,000.

 

 

 

 

 

The 2022 season kicks off with the traditional Mother's Day Opener on Sunday, May 8, with the Cressman Sanitation Shootout.

PERRIS AUTO SPEEDWAY 2022 SCHEDULE!

 

(Perris, CA, January 5, 2022) Perris Auto Speedway promoter Don Kazarian is pleased to release the track’s 2022 schedule. The season will be the 26th year of competition for the widely known racing facility.

 

The 2022 campaign will feature 27 exciting nights of racing action on the West Coast’s premier dirt track. Widely known for its long association with sprint cars, the open-wheel discipline leads the way with 10 dates this year. The Amsoil USAC/CRA and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars will kick off the open-wheel portion of the schedule with the SoCal Showdown on March 26th.  The PAS Senior and Young Gun Sprint Cars will partner up and race together at each USAC/CRA Sprint Car show through the month of October. 

 

The sprint car schedule will include several special dates throughout the campaign.  Included will be the SoCal Showdown, the Sokola Shootout on April 30th, the Salute to Indy on May 28th, the inaugural Bubby Jones/Ray Sheetz Memorial on June 25th, the California Racer’s Hall of Fame Night on August 20th, and the September 17th Glenn Howard Classic.  The open-wheel season will close with the 26th Annual Heimark/Anheuser Busch Oval Nationals presented by All Coast Construction featuring the USAC/CRA and USAC National Sprint Cars on November 3rd, 4th, and 5th. 

 

The wildly popular Night of Destruction presented by LKQ Pick Your Part will bookend the track’s 26th year beginning with the season-opening event on March 5th and the year’s finale on November 12th. All told there will be nine Nights of Destruction in 2022 and each will feature Figure 8 racing, Figure 8 Trailer races, Mini Stocks on the road course, Demo Cross, and the crazy Double Deckers. Included after two years off will be the annual Fireworks Spectacular/Night of Destruction on Saturday, July 2nd.

 

The 26th season of PASSCAR Stock Car racing will see eight nights of action in 2022. Headlined by the powerful and growing super stock class, PASSCAR nights will also feature street stocks, factory stocks, and for the first time, IMCA sport compacts

 

Fans will notice a change to PASSCAR nights in 2022. Except for the March 19th PASSCAR lid lifter and “Champions Night” on October 22nd, the IMCA modifieds will be making six of their eight appearances on the same card with the AMSOIL USAC/CRA, Sprint Cars from April through September.

 

Another addition to the schedule happens on September 17th. For the first time in several years, Lightning Sprint Cars will be back at The PAS.  They will be joining the USAC/CRA Series and the IMCA modifieds that night. It will be the first-ever POWRi sanctioned Southwest Lightning Sprint Car Series race on the famous half-mile clay oval.

 

Last Sunday afternoon, Kazarian was a guest on “The Racer Radio Show” and he discussed the 2022 schedule with host Dave Stall. For those who missed the show, you can listen to the replay at the following link http://www.perrisautospeedway.com/radio22/RACERRADIO220102.mp3

 

Advance tickets for all PAS-promoted races will be available soon at www.tix.com.  Tickets for the World of Outlaws USAC/CRA So Cal Showdown are on sale now at the following link https://mpv.tickets.com/?orgid=52711&agency=WRG_SNG_MPV&eventID=73567

Kofoid Tops Midget Power Rankings for Second Year in a Row!

Lonnie Wheatley, BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (January 3, 2022) – For the second year in a row, Michael “Buddy” Kofoid of Penngrove, CA, landed atop the season’s Midget Power Rankings.

After posting ten wins in 2020 to earn the top spot for the first time, Kofoid upped it to 15 overall wins to take the top spot in 2021 as well.  After edging Cannon McIntosh by just two points for top honors in 2020, Kofoid took the 2021 top ranking by a comfortable 309-point margin.

A half-dozen of Kofoid’s feature wins came in USAC action as he raced to the series championship as well as the Indiana Midget Week title with his other nine triumphs taking place in POWRi National Midget action.

Chris Windom posted his highest final Midget Power Ranking of second as he battled Kofoid for the USAC Midget title down to the wire, edging  Daison Pursley by just two points for the position.  Pursley finished among the top ten for the second year in a row before being sidelined by a late-season injury.

Justin Grant cracked the top five for the first time since 2017 by finishing fourth with Emerson Axsom breaking into the top ten at fifth.

Cannon McIntosh was sixth with Tanner Thorson, Bryant Wiedeman, Logan Seavey and Thomas Meseraull completing the top ten.

Seavey, who topped the Midget Power Rankings in both 2018 and 2019, holds the string of most top-tens in final Midget Power Rankings at four years in a row while Axsom and POWRi West Midget champion Wiedeman both broke into the top ten for the first time.

A look at this year’s Top 50 in Midget Power Rankings is as follows:

RUMBLE 23 ADDS "RISING STAR AWARD" FOR QUARTER MIDGET DIVISION

FORT WAYNE, IN (Dec 13, 2021) – Pit Row TV, the broadcast partner for The Rumble in Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales, will acknowledge the "Rising Star of the Rumble" with a plaque presented through SPEED SPORT 1 and a check for $200 to the quarter midget racer chosen by committee to receive it.

"The Rumble in Fort Wayne has been a launchpad for the careers of many national level stars," said event promoter Larry Boos. "Today, I see Chase Briscoe and Erik Jones racing at the highest levels and I remember when they were much younger and racing their quarter midgets with us at the Rumble. I expect to see many more ascend to the national ranks after their time with us, too."

Covering the careers of young racers since the early days has been SPEED SPORT, who just launched a new content network, SPEED SPORT 1. The Rumble in Fort Wayne is one of the crown jewel events in their portfolio; Pit Row TV is an affiliate of SPEED SPORT TV.
 
"The excitement of having the likes of Tony Stewart, Ken Schrader, and Justin Peck may receive the biggest headlines, but we want to look deeper and attempt to shine a light on a quarter midget racer on the rise with this award." said Pit Row TV's Chief Steward, Tony Stevens.

Competitors can register for the Baker Racing Engines Quarter Midgets on-site at the Rumble through the start of each day's racing events. Additionally, registration will be open through the start of each day's racing events for all other divisions including the North Baltimore Custom Cuts winged 600cc Midgets, LiUNA non-winged 600’s, and the headlining midget cars. The go-kart division will also be represented with 8 classes including the Jeremy Howe Racing Sr. Champs, Coe Heating & Air Conditioning Junior 3’s, Economy Auto Parts 330 Clones, Bob Buescher Homes 360 Clones, everageauto.com Wedge Karts, Junior Sportsman, 400 Clones and Kid Karts. Each of the divisions and classes will compete in full programs each day.

Advance tickets are available through any Ticketmaster outlet or at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum box office, and on race-day. For those unable to make the trek to Fort Wayne, this year’s program will be live streamed in its entirety via Pit Row TV and SPEED SPORT TV.

NAPA AUTO PARTS, PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS, LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT RETURN AS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES SPONSORS FOR 2022, OPENER SET FOR SUNDAY, MAY 29

 

BECHTELSVILLE, PA   January 14, 2022    .   .   .   .   .   The thirty-third season of Thunder on the Hill will return to the Grandview Speedway in 2022 proudly supported by long time sponsors NAPA Auto Parts, the series lead sponsor and, associate series sponsors Pioneer Pole Buildings and Levan Machine & Truck Equipment.  

 

The popular Thunder on the Hill Series opener is set for Sunday, May 29 featuring the Triple Roaring 20’s for Big Block/358 Modifieds sharing the program in a first time visit by the SpeedSTRs as part of the Thunder Series.   Once again, Bob Greene and Pioneer Pole Buildings will post a $5,000 bonus to any driver that sweeps the triple 20’s and a $1,000 bonus to a driver who wins two of the triple 20’s. 

 

The Thunder Series continues on Tuesday, June 14 with the Jesse Hockett Classic USAC Non-Wing Sprint National Tour plus the 358 Modifieds Tri-Track Series event. 

 

Tuesday, June 28 will showcase the Red Robin PA 410 Sprint Speed Week Greg Hodnett Cup paying $10,000 to win joined by the 358 Modifieds.     This event pays tribute to remembering Greg Hodnett, one of the respected sprint car drivers  of all times and a former Thunder on the Hill Sprint Champion.

 

The Thunder Series returns to “the hill” on Tuesday, August 2 with the Balls to the Wall 50 lap (invert race) for 358 modifieds Tri-Track Series joined by the popular sportsman.     This event offers a unique format for the modifieds.   After a series of qualifying, the top twelve drivers will take part in a revenge redraw to determine the starting line-up.   This invert race will offer a bonus to the top ten drivers on lap 30 and lap 40 earning an additional payoff of $1,500 to the leader, $400 for second, $200 for third, $100 for fourth with $50 going to fifth through tenth.     The twist is, the yellow flag will slow the field on lap 30 and lap 40 and the top four cars will invert.   All other drivers hold their positions.  The event will go with double-file restarts up to lap 48.

 

With the base purse being $5,000 to win, leading laps 30 and 40 would earn an extra $3,000 making it an eye catching $8,000 to win.  But wait, it gets better.   If a driver does the sweep of leading lap 30, 40 and 50, with thanks to Pioneer Pole Buildings, an additional $5,000 will go to the winner making it a $13,000 payday.   This will be a “Balls to the Wall” event that will guarantee $1,000 for tenth and $500 just to start the feature event.

 

What is the theory around the invert race?   This format will add another level of excitement for race fans, especially in the closing laps of the 50 lap feature.   The added payoff that can be earned by running in the top ten is a bonus.   Another interesting aspect is, a driver leads lap 30 or lap 40 and late in the race he drops out with mechanical issue, he still earns $1,500 plus the money posted for the position he finished.

 

The idea of this event is really to spice up a special modified event.  History has been, special events are usually driven by extended distances and increased payoff.   This offers the same, plus the twist of an invert.   This is not an event you would do weekly, just something different that will bring drivers up on their wheel and fans to edge of their seat.

 

Grandview Speedway and Thunder on the Hill is excited to be part of the return of the Tri-Track Series, working with both BAPS Motor Speedway and Big Diamond Raceway for six events in 2022.   We look to expand this 358 Spec Motor Series going forward.   In additional, all modified events that are part of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series in 2022 will also be NASCAR point races. 

 

We greatly appreciate the support from our sponsors who work by our side to make our events exciting for the fans and competitors.

MONTPELIER MOTOR SPEEDWAY TO RETURN WITH FULL SEASON PLANNED IN 2022

Weekly Divisions Will Be Modifieds, Super Stocks, Street Stocks & Hornets with Specials Added

 

 

 

MONTPELIER, IN (January 10) – Following an abbreviated 2021 season, Montpelier Motor Speedway officials have announced that the 3/8-mile clay oval will return to a full-season schedule in 2022.  Saturday, April 9 has been targeted as the opening night.

 

The historic oval was sitting idle for the first half of 2021 but came to life in late July under the direction of Larry Boos, who will return this season in the same capacity as promoter/manager of the north eastern Indiana speed plant.

 

“We had spent much of our time last year getting to know the racers and fans that support Montpelier and have learned quite a bit. They are a supportive group, and our mission is to give them a quality program in 2022,” stated Boos.

 

Under that premise, Montpelier Motor Speedway will feature UMP Modifieds, Super Stocks, Street Stocks, and Hornets as weekly divisions. Multiple dates have been selected for appearances from the Midwest Thunder Midget Series and the Dirt Truck Series. Additionally, the Late Models will have a few dates on the calendar. Negotiations are underway for additional dates, to be announced soon.

 

“We appreciate the interest that fans have in touring groups coming to Montpelier, but we know our place in the racing world and what we are capable of doing. We are grassroots weekly racing and as we continue to grow and learn we will continue to expand our initiatives. When we bring in outside sanctioning groups, we want to be able to do it right,” concluded Boos.

Bacon became the third different driver to top the Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Rankings in consecutive years since its inception in 2013 along with Robert Ballou (2014 and 2015) and Kevin Thomas, Jr. (2016, 2017 and 2018).

Five of Bacon’s eight overall Non-Wing Sprint Car wins in 2021 came in USAC National Sprint Car competition as he raced to a fourth career Sprint Car championship.  Victories came at Lawrenceburg, Grandview and Bloomington along with preliminary wins at Perris Auto Speedway’s “Oval Nationals” and Arizona Speedway’s “Western World Championships”.

Finishing among the top-ten in Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Rankings for the ninth consecutive year, Bacon took the top spot by 91 points over Justin Grant.  With a Kokomo Smackdown triumph among his 10 wins on the season, Grant finished among the top-five for a fifth consecutive year.

2021 Oval Nationals champion Kevin Thomas, Jr., finished out the year ranked third, his sixth time among the top three including three times at the top rung of the ladder.

Jake Swanson put together his best season to date by ranking fourth with his first USAC Sprint Car win in Oval Nationals preliminary action among his eight feature wins for the year.

With a victory in the Inaugural USAC Sprint Car Nationals at Huset’s Speedway among his seven overall wins, C.J. Leary rounded out the top five to make it four years in a row among the top five including the top ranking in 2019.

Tanner Thorson ranked sixth with the balance of the top ten including Chris Windom, Logan Seavey, Robert Ballou and Jadon Rogers.

While Bacon has finished amongst the top ten during each of the nine years of the Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Rankings, Swanson, Thorson, Seavey and Rogers each broke into the top ten for the first time.

Separated into Non-Wing 410 and Non-Wing 360 Power Rankings through 2018, those were consolidated into a single Non-Wing Sprint Car Power Ranking for 2019 and beyond with all Non-Wing 410 and injected Non-Wing 360 events included in the Rankings.
