Larson Drives to First Career Hillbilly Hundred

MIDDLEBOURNE, W.Va. (September 29, 2022) – The reigning NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson held off three different challengers to win the 54th running of the Hillbilly Hundred on Thursday night at the Tyler County Speedway. Larson earned $30,000 for his third career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory in the oldest dirt late model racing crown jewel event in the country.

 

Brandon Sheppard finished in second followed by Garrett Alberson, Tim McCreadie, and Josh Richards.

 

Larson, who won his first-ever dirt late model event at Port Royal Speedway in 2020 in only his second start saw, Sheppard, Alberson, and Garrett Smith all take shots at him during the race. However, the 30-year-old California native was credited with leading all 100 laps despite be scored dead-even at the stripe three times during the race.

 

With the win Larson becomes the 20th different driver to win a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series race this season. “That might be one of the luckiest races I have ever had. The cautions just fell at exactly the right times when I needed them to. You know every time I started seeing their nose to my inside the caution would come out. I wasn’t any good running around the bottom, so I knew I was in trouble. The caution would come out and it would take me about 10 laps to catch traffic. There were laps where I felt like I could get my angles right in traffic and get my wheels spinning underneath me. Most laps if I moved down below the banking I was shoving.”

 

Sheppard, who ran in second for most of the race, lined up right behind Larson on a restart with seven laps to go and tried the low line to pass Larson but came up one car length short of his first Hillbilly Hundred win. “These bullrings produce the best racing that’s for sure. The track was awesome tonight. With the rain they had, they worked on it all day long and gave us a great racing surface. Congratulations to Kyle he did a heck of a job there. We were right there several times. He [Larson] had good speed up there running up on the banking. I couldn’t make anything happen, I thought I was going to in lapped traffic, but the caution would keep coming out. He did a really good job.”

 

Alberson, the current O’Reilly Auto Parts top rookie in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series came close to the biggest win of his career. “I wanted to win that thing bad. I really thought we had a shot there for a minute. I got one good run on him [Larson] off of four. I felt like that was my one shot. I felt pretty good, lapped traffic I would get out a little wider. I was a little tight to get down there in three and four. That was a heck of a race this place is elbows up for sure.”

 

The winner’s Rumley Enterprises, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by FloRacing, HendrickCars.com, Bilstein Shocks, D&E Marine, Winning Edge Carburetion, Hot Rod Septic Treatment, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, and Senior Life Insurance.

 

Completing the top ten were Mike Marlar, Michael Brown, Earl Pearson Jr., Hudson O’Neal, and Colton Burdette.

JEREMY WONDERLING STEALS $10,000 "BILL HENDREN MEMORIAL" PRESENTED BY FKROD ENDS AWAY FROM PITTSBURGH STANDOUT KYLE LUKON FOR HIS 4TH STRAIGHT HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE TOURING SERIES VICTORY

By Mike Leone


 

(September 30, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Imperial, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants competed in the annual "Bill Hendren Memorial" on Friday night at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway. In what was supposed to be night one of the two-night affair for the 34th annual "Pittsburgher" turned into one night due to the early cancellation of Saturday night's event with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series from the remnants of Hurricane Ian. Flynn's Tire Touring Series race #18 of the season attracted 41 cars from seven states plus Ontario, Canada in the third and final appearance of 2022 to "Dirt's Monster Half-Mile".


 

Thanks to the gracious support from FK Rod Ends, Pro Fabrication, City Chevrolet, Hendren Racing Engines, Keyser Manufacturing, Precise Racing Products, 955 Automotive, CrateInsider.com, Daytona 1 Performance Lubricants, West Mifflin Collision, Stan's Transmission, and Branden Lockwich, approximately $22,500 was added into the standard Touring Series purse, which allowed Saturday's show to be held on Friday night with the blessing of Miley Motor Sports and the Bill Hendren Family! It marked the seventh straight year the "Bill Hendren Memorial" has been held at Pittsburgh with an increased purse each year.


 

On July 3, 2021, three-time Flynn's Tire Touring Series Champion Jeremy Wonderling finally slayed the 'Monster' winning his first at Pittsburgh. Little did Wonderling know that would be his last Series victory for 14 months and 20 days. Wonderling finally returned to victory lane sweeping the two-night "Topless Nationals" at his Saturday night home track Genesee Speedway for $6,000 last Friday and Saturday night with a new Longhorn Chassis. Then on Thursday night in his first ever start at Tyler County, beat out home track favorite Kyle Thomas for $4,000. And on Friday night, Wonderling passed 43-time Pittsburgh winner, Kyle Lukon, with five laps to go to steal the $10,000 payday in the "Bill Hendren Memorial"! Wonderling's four straight Tour wins in eight days have been worth more than $20,000, and tied Max Blair's run of four straight wins in 2015 for the record long win streak in Series history.         


 

"I never thought I was going to win a race at Pittsburgh last year let alone to come here tonight and do it," expressed the 42-year-old Wellsville, NY racer.  "I wasn't great in time trials, pretty good in the heat, then we tried some stuff in the dash, which was the wrong call that I probably would have made in the feature. This is a place you don't come to once or twice a year and run well. Kyle (Lukon) was better in the open and long runs than I was, and I knew once we got to lapped traffic that was going to be a big deal. We were both digging the ditch down there, close to wall as we could be. I was just close enough to him that one time and he slipped it up off the corner. He tried to slide me once and we made a little contact, but this is 10 grand. I seen five to go when I got the lead and I knew it was going to be nothing but a dog fight for the next five laps. I tried to stay as calm as I could be. He's impressive down here as well as he can roll the top so I figured he'd really roll the top in (turns) one and two and gain on me or something." 


 

Following his first Sunoco Dash win of the season, Lukon took off in the lead at the start of the 50-lap feature over five-time 2022 Pittsburgh winner, Ben Policz, while Michael Duritsky, Jr., Cole Petrelle, and Joe Martin were in tow. Lukon quickly distanced himself from the pack, while five cars battled for runner-up. Wonderling started in eighth and was already halfway to the front when he passed Petrelle for fourth on lap six. Lukon had a lead of 2.866 seconds when he caught lapped traffic on lap eight. That lead quickly dissipated as Lukon struggled in dirty air allowing Policz to close in on lap nine and was right on the leader on lap 10. Duritsky joined the battle making it a three-car race for the lead on lap 11 before the event's first caution when Delaware star Matt Hill slowed.


 

When racing resumed, Lukon again pulled away in clean air, while Duritsky and Policz swapped second and third three times between laps 12-14. After losing second, Duritsky now had his hands full trying to hold off Wonderling as Wonderling drove under the Dog Hollow Speedway Champion for third on lap 15. Action came to a halt with 16 laps scored when several cars made contact in turn two with Matt Latta spinning toward the fence; unfortunately, Tim Shaffer had nowhere to go and launched over Latta and landed partially on top of him against the fence. All drivers were okay.


 

When racing resumed, Lukon's teammate Justin Chance entered the fray as he passed Duritsky for fourth on lap 18. After a caution for Dan Lepro, Tom Klein, and Michael Reft with 20 laps scored, Policz pitted with a flat tire yielding runner-up to Wonderling with Chance up to third. Back under green, Lukon again resumed his lead and stretched it to nearly 1.5 seconds when he caught lapped traffic on lap 32. The event's final caution was displayed when Zach Gunn slowed with 34 laps completed. 


 

Back under green for the final 16 laps, Chance, who finished fourth at the "Jook George Steel City Classic" on August 6, slowed running third and pitted ending a shot for two Lukon #184 cars on the podium. Chance would be credited with 19th and received a spoiler kit from Ontime Body & Graphic. 


 

The remaining laps saw Wonderling trying everything he could to keep Lukon in his sights. After Lukon stretched his lead back to around 1.5 seconds, Wonderling began closing the gap by 1-2 tenths every lap. Lapped traffic allowed Wonderling to close even more. Wonderling surprised Lukon ducking under and past the leader for what would be the winning pass on lap 45. Lukon tried a big move on lap 46 and temporarily got back by for the lead. The two then made contact in turns three and four, but both were able to continue as Wonderling maintained the lead. 


 

Wonderling then went unchallenged in the final laps and garnered his 14th career Tour victory by 1.218 seconds in his Terry Prince Contracting/Close Racing Supply/Cummings Trucking/Shuttleworth Auto Sales/Cummings Trucking/Dynamic Drivelines/Swift Springs-sponsored #3J. It was also Wonderling's leading 17th RUSH-sanctioned victory of 2022 as he officially won the National Weekly Series Championship! 


 

"I've always really liked the Hendren races," acknowledged Wonderling. "I know how big he is to crate racing and the importance he plays. I watch his videos on YouTube and Facebook. Steve is definitely one of the top engine builders out there, but I guess I better thank 955 Automotive. He (Jason Ore/955) does my motors. I've always been so close to winning one of those plaques in a Hendren race. I never got one, but I'll definitely take this check over one of those from the past!"


 

(Note: Wonderling's engine passed the post-race engine inspection, and the win will be official once the results of the fuel and tire samples that were taken are verified to be in compliance.)


 

Lukon followed up his $3,000 runner-up finish from the August 6 "Jook George Steel City Classic" with another runner-up in a Tour race at Pittsburgh, but this time worth $5,000!  "I knew I wasn't great on the restarts so I was pinching him (Wonderling) off a little bit into one," explained the 32-year-old Burgettstown, Pa. resident. "I'd leave him just enough room to get down there. I just really couldn't take off. I thought I was running good until that last time when I caught traffic. They kept running through the water down in one and two, but I'm told that's not part of the race track. It's frustrating, but a week ago we didn't know if we were even going to be able to make it tonight. I said it in the dash, you run with Logan (Roberson), Joe (Martin), and Jeremy- all these guys are so tough to beat. The fact we were able to lead 44 of it, is upsetting but you can't be too upset about it."


 

Another big story of the event was Ben Scott. The Delmar, Delaware driver made more than a six-hour tow to Pittsburgh on Friday and charged from the 14th starting spot to an impressive third place finish. Earlier this season, Scott made the trip to Pittsburgh and finished 12th in a Weekly Series event. Scott's prior best career Tour finish was an 11th this year at Winchester. Scott, a 2022 Delaware International RUSH Weekly Series winner, earned a career best $2,500 for his third place finish.


 

"All those restarts seemed to go our way and the race surface was just phenomenal tonight," stated the 23-year-old First State resident.  "Driving from 14th to third was pretty awesome. I really needed this run tonight. This is the second race back on the this car after getting it off the jig from Longhorn so it feels good to be in a straight car again. Lapped traffic was holding them (Lukon and Wonderling) up a bit and letting me close the gap a bit. I didn't want anything to happen to Jeremy, but I was just praying traffic would hold them up a bit more so I could get there. Congrats to Jeremy and all his team- they had a great run." 


 

Michael Norris, who won three RUSH Late Model races in four starts this year at Pittsburgh and was leading the "Jook George Steel City Classic" before a scary crash, went seventh to fourth for $2,000. Brandon Burgoon drove Ken Chernik's #5x from 11th to a career best Tour finish of fifth worth $1,500. Duritsky dropped to sixth for $1,200. Policz charged back through the field in the final 30 laps following his flat tire to finish seventh and earned $1,000. Second place points man, Martin, was eighth after making several pit stops. Garret Paugh went 23rd to ninth and received the $50 Precise Racing Products "Pedal Down" Hard Charger gift card. Reft came back from an early spin to complete the top 10.   


 

Making just his third start in a RUSH Late Model and first ever in a Tour event, 18-year-old Frank Magill captured the victory in the 10-lap D&V Jewelers Non-Qualifier worth $300. Magill also received a complimentary pass to the Race Logic Chassis School to be held January 28-29, 2023 at Gatherings Event & Banquet Center in Edinburg, Pa., which is an additional $399 value! The Clairton, Pa. driver started sixth and passed Brandt Graham on lap three and never looked back dominating the caution-free event. Magill took the victory over Graham by a huge margin of 6.202 seconds in the #05 as he became the amazing 63rd different winner in 75 Non-Qualifier races run all-time!  Colby Beighey was third. Pole-sitter Ashton Briggs finished fourth and also received a $100 Performance Bodies gift card for being the first feature non-qualifier. Breyton Santee was fifth.


 

Duritsky earned his first $100 FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock" Qualifying award of the season with a lap of 19.040. Scoring $25 FK Rod Ends heat race wins were Duritsky, Petrelle, Wonderling, and Policz. Lukon picked a good time to win his first Sunoco Dash of the season as he not only received a $100 Sunoco gift card, but also $250 cash from 955 Automotive. Also receiving $100 Sunoco gift cards in the random drawings were Latta and Logan Roberson, while $50 Sunoco gift cards went to Ryan Frazee, Chance, Dan Lepro, and Kayla McManus.


 

Dave Goble was the highest finishing non-winner in the feature with a career best Tour finish of 13th and also received a complimentary pass to the Race Logic Chassis School valued at $399! Roberson, who continues to lead the $15,000 to-win Flynn's Tire Touring Series points, lost an engine leading his heat race. Roberson was unable to get the engine changed in time to run his B main, and was chosen as the TBM Brakes "Tough Brake of the Night" recipient. 


 

The Flynn’s Tire Touring Series will now be off until the season finale at Lernerville Speedway October 13-15. The "Steel City Stampede" will include practice on Thursday. Qualifying, heat races and the dash will be run on Friday night. Last chance B mains, the $3500 to-win feature, and non-qualifier will be contested on Saturday night. Rain date is Sunday.

JEREMY WONDERLING MAKES HISTORY WINNING THE 1ST EVER HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN’S TIRE TOUR RACE IN WEST VIRGINIA; THE NEW YORKER’S 3RD STRAIGHT WIN COMES IN HIS 1ST EVER TYLER COUNTY APPEARANCE

By Mike Leone


 

(September 29, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Middlebourne, WV)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants participated in the rescheduled “Hillbilly 100” for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the first time ever at Tyler County Speedway and live on Flo Racing. After two prior rainouts this season at Tyler County, the Flynn’s Tire Touring Series finally completed its first ever event in the state of West Virginia. Twenty-seven teams from five different states made their way to the ¼-mile bullring on Thursday night.  


 

Just one week ago, three-time Flynn’s Tire Touring Series Champion Jeremy Wonderling hadn’t won a Series event in well over 14 months. After sweeping last weekend’s two-night “Topless Nationals” for $6,000 at Genesee Speedway, Wonderling made his first ever appearance at Tyler County a successful one scoring a thrilling win over home track favorite Kyle Thomas in the “Cider Jug 40” worth $4,000. Wonderling has pocketed more than $10,000 in the last seven days with his third straight victory!


 

“The track is kind of similar to some tracks we have back home,” explained the 42-year-old Wellsville, NY standout. “The race car has been really good ever since I got it so my confidence has been high in the car as long as I can do my job and hit the setup right. The top was dominant in (turns) three and four, but more in the middle in one and two. I could get through both corners real good. I was in the wall in (turn) three a couple times trying to miss the bump getting in. As long as I could hit my marks, I could keep it pretty smooth and knew I had pretty good control of the race. I feel bad for Joe (Martin). He obviously had a good car and went scooting by me, but I saw him clip the cars. I told him he had a flat while we were sitting there so he could get in and get it changed and back out there.”


 

“It was really the lapped cars that were going to be the death of me but that’s all part of racing,” acknowledged Wonderling. “I was good. I never heard or seen anyone, while I was in lapped traffic then that one lapped car just stopped. I knew as long as I kept going I would be alright. Some of the guys play games on the restarts and I don’t know if they think they’re going to shake me and get out in front of me, but that’s not going to bother me.” 


 

Wonderling took off in the lead at the start of the 40-lap featuring following just his second Sunoco Dash victory of the season with West Virginia standout Brent Trimble, points leader Logan Roberson, Braeden Dillinger, and Joe Martin in tow. Martin got past Dillinger for fourth on lap two and caught Roberson on lap four. Following a caution for Tyler County Champion, Donnie Dotson, it was three-wide on the restart on lap six for second with Martin and eighth starting Thomas moving by Roberson. 


 

By lap 11, Wonderling and Martin began to distance themselves from the field. Wonderling had a 0.537-second lead when he caught lapped traffic on lap 14. Martin pulled alongside Wonderling in the battle for the lead on lap 17. The duo was in heavy lapped traffic when a five-car accident ensued in front of them. Even though Wonderling and Martin were able to avoid the accident, Martin clipped one of the cars and suffered a flat tire. Later on in the event, Martin worked his way back up to battle for fifth when he suffered another setback and called it night. Martin was selected as the TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night”.


 

Back under green on lap 18, Wonderling continued to lead with Thomas and Roberson now in second and third. Wonderling stretched out his lead to 1.544 seconds when he caught lapped traffic again on lap 25. Thomas and Roberson closed in quickly and it was a three-car race for the lead in traffic. Thomas nosed ahead to lead lap 28 ending a run of 87 consecutive laps led by Wonderling over the past three events; however, Marc Berzowski, who was making his third straight Tour start since purchasing a RUSH Late Model, slowed to bring out the caution.


 

When racing resumed on lap 29, Wonderling used the outside to regain the lead on the restart, while his brother Brady overtook Roberson for third. Jeremy Wonderling once again pulled away on lap 31 as Thomas now had his hands full with Brady Wonderling and Roberson. Jeremy Wonderling had a big scare when Jared Keeney slowed directly in front of him coming off turn four on lap 37. Wonderling was totally sideways and the yellow was out before another lap was scored, which allowed him to maintain the lead. 


 

Thomas had one more shot alongside Wonderling, but Wonderling was too strong and pulled away over the final four laps to take the checkered flag first by 1.438 seconds. Wonderling’s 16th RUSH-sanctioned victory of 2022 clinched the Hovis National Weekly Series Championship aboard his Terry Prince Contracting/Close Racing Supply/Cummings Trucking/Shuttleworth Auto Sales/Cummings Trucking/Dynamic Drivelines/Swift Springs-sponsored #3J. It was Wonderling’s 13th career Flynn’s Tire Tour victory.


 

Thomas, who had two Hovis Weekly Series victories this year at Tyler County, earned $2,000 in his first ever RUSH Tour start. Roberson’s third place was worth $1,000 as his eighth podium extended his points lead over Martin. After five 10th place finishes in the last six events, Brady Wonderling’s fourth place was his first top five since May 29 at Bradford Speedway. Trimble was fifth in his first ever RUSH race. 


 

Paugh came home in sixth. Dotson battled back from his spin to finish seventh. Matt Latta was eighth for his eighth top eight finish in the last 11 races and his 10th top 10 of the season. Ryan Frazee, who started 15th, was a season best ninth. Breyton Santee went 19th to 10th for his third straight top 10 and seventh of the season.


 

Dustin Luzier made his first ever RUSH start and went 24th to 14th to earn the $50 Precise Racing Products “Pedal Down” Hard Charger gift card. Keeney, who won seven RUSH Weekly Series events this year, made his first Tour start of the season and finished 17th to earn a spoiler kit from Ontime Body & Graphic. Jacob Rucker also made his first ever RUSH start and received a $100 Performance Bodies gift card for being the first non-qualifier.


 

Trimble set fast time in FK Rod Ends “Shock the Clock” Qualifying with a lap of 13.719 to earn $100. Dillinger, Roberson, and Wonderling added $25 for winning FK Rod Ends heat races. Santee won the last chance B main. Wonderling earned a $100 Sunoco gift card for winning the Sunoco Dash. Also receiving $100 Sunoco gift cards in the random drawings were Andy Michael and Kyle Lukon, while the $50 Sunoco gift cards were won by West Virginia racers Ryan Hare, A.J. Spagnuolo, Logan Reed, and Troy Frazier.


 

The Flynn’s Tire Tour now sets it sights on Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway for two nights at “Dirt’s Monster Half-Mile” for the annual “Bill Hendren Memorial” September 30-October 1. Friday night will pay $4,000 to-win presented by Keyser Manufacturing and Precise Racing Products.  Saturday night will pay $10,000 to-win presented by FK Rod Ends in conjunction with City Chevrolet and Pro Fab.

HUGE 3-NIGHT HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR WEEKEND ON TAP WITH TYLER COUNTY THURSDAY FOLLOWED BY PITTSBURGH FRIDAY & SATURDAY; "BILL HENDREN MEMORIAL" FINALE TO PAY $10,000 TO-WIN PRESENTED BY FK ROD ENDS IN CONJUNCTION WITH CITY CHEVROLET & PRO FAB

By Mike Leone


 

(September 27, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Pulaski, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is ready for one of its biggest weekends in history. It all gets underway on Thursday night (September 29) at Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV for the "Cider Jug 40" then followed up by two nights at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway in Imperial, PA on Friday and Saturday for the annual "Bill Hendren Memorial" presented by FK Rod Ends in conjunction with City Chevrolet and Pro Fabrication. A three-night sweep would be worth a minimum of $18,000! The forecast calls for dry weather all three nights.   


 

The Thursday night Tyler County show is the rescheduled "Cider Jug 40" part of the "Hillbilly 100" with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series that was rained out on September 4. After two rainouts this season for the Flynn's Tire Tour at Tyler County, hopefully the third time is charm for the first ever RUSH Tour event in the state of West Virginia. 


 

Tyler County is in its first year under the RUSH banner for its Late Model class, and made history on April 2 when it ran its first ever RUSH Late Model event. There were 12 events completed with seven different winners this season at "The Bullring". Donnie Dotson leads the way with four victories as he sits atop the $2,000 to-win "Track Pack" with the final event of the season on Sunday. Michael Duritsky, Jr. and Kyle Thomas each have a pair of victories, while A.J. Spagnuolo, Brandon Weigle, Lucas McDonald, and Logan Reed also have a win.   


 

Action then shifts 100 miles north to Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway on Friday night as "Dirt's Monster Half-Mile" hosts the "Bill Hendren Memorial" for the seventh consecutive year to kickoff the 34th annual "Pittsburgher" weekend. The opening night will pay a record $4,000 to-win, $300 to-start thanks to sponsorship from Keyser Manufacturing and Precise Racing Products!


 

On Saturday night, the RUSH Late Model Flynn's Tire Tour will join up once again with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the second time in three nights and third time of the season in a huge fashion. Earlier this season, RUSH competed on the same card as LOLMDS at Lernerville's "Firecracker 100" in which Mark Whitener won the richest race in RUSH history worth $20,000 in the "Bill Emig Memorial" presented by Sunoco Race Fuels. 


 

Now another crown jewel has been added to the RUSH schedule- the $10,000 to-win, $450 to-start "Bill Hendren Memorial" thanks to sponsorship from FK Rod Ends, Pro Fabrication, and City Chevrolet, as well as Hendren Racing Engines, 955 Automotive, CrateInsider.com, Daytona 1 Performance Lubricants, West Mifflin Collision, Stan's Transmission, and Branden Lockwich! This has become the richest "Bill Hendren Memorial" weekend to date. Saturday's show has a rain date of Sunday.     


 

Also on Saturday, 955 Automotive will present the Sunoco Dash as the winner will not only receive a $100 Sunoco gift card and the pole position for the feature, but also $250! 


 

In addition, the Race Logic Chassis School will award two complimentary passes to its School to be held on January 28-29, 2023 at Gatherings Banquet & Event Center in Edinburg, Pa. Each pass is valued at $399! One will go to the highest finishing non-winner in the Feature and the second to the highest finishing non-winner in the Non-Qualifier. In the event that there is no non winners in the feature, the second highest finishing non-winner in the Non-Qualifier will receive a complimentary pass.  In order to be eligible, driver cannot have won a Late Model (full-size) feature of any kind or any headlining division feature.


 

Pittsburgh has had 10 different winners in 19 RUSH Late Model races this season. Ben Policz leads the way with five victories, while Michael Norris has won three out four starts including last Saturday night and the $3,000 "Herb Scott Memorial" Flynn's Tire Tour event.  Cole Petrelle, Tim Shaffer, and Joe Martin each have a pair of victories. Daryl Charlier, Kyle Lukon, Michael Reft, Philip Bubeck, and Logan Roberson have single victories. Bubeck leads the $1,000 to-win "Track Pack" points.


 

There have been 10 different winners in 16 Flynn's Tire Touring Series events this season. Virginia's Logan Roberson continues to lead the points with 12 top 5s and 14 top 10 including a Series high five victories.  Roberson won the last Tour event at PPMS, the "Jook George Steel City Classic", for more than $7,600. Martin has two checkered flags and has cut the deficit down to just 12 points, which is as close as Martin has been to the points lead all season long.

 

Three-time Tour champion, Jeremy Wonderling, is coming off a $6,000 sweep of the "Topless Nationals" last weekend at Genesee to remain in the hunt for the championship in third. Matt Latta has had a strong second half of the season with seven top seven finishes in the last 10 events including a season best fourth on Saturday night as he's moved into fourth in points. After being as high as third in points, Jeremy's brother Brady Wonderling has dropped to fifth.  Breyton Santee is coming off his best two finishes of the season and is sixth over Andy Michael, Ashton Briggs, Jim Rasey, and Jonathan Stockdale. Canadians Craig Graham and his son Brandt are 11th and 12th in points respectively. Rasey leads the D&V Jewelers Non-Qualifier points.

 

"This has quickly turned into one of the biggest weekends in RUSH Racing Series history," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "It's been unbelievable to see the 'Bill Hendren Memorial' continue to grow.  In 2017 it was a $2,500 to-win event spread over two nights with bonus monies. To see it evolve into back-to-back events paying $4,000 and $10,000 to-win in such a short period of time is incredible! You just can't put a price on showcasing the RUSH Late Model Touring Series in a three-night swing in conjunction with these prestigious Lucas Oil Late Model events at both Tyler County's 'Hillbilly 100' and the 'Pittsburgher'!"


 

"Miley Motor Sports echoes the sentiments expressed by Vicki Emig," stated PPMS promoter Matt Miley.  "It has been a tremendous honor to partner with the Hendren Family and RUSH to develop this awesome tribute to Bill Hendren.  Many years ago, Miley Motor Sports, led by the late Red Miley, was at the forefront in bringing Chevrolet Performance crate engine racing to western Pennsylvania.  Both Bill Hendren and Red Miley had the foresight to realize crate racing would eventually save weekly Late Model racing at many speedways.  Lots of folks laughed, 'how could a crate engine Late Model be a success story'?  Well, my guess is Bill and Red will be smiling all the way through the $14,000 to-win 'Pittsburgher' weekend!  As Red would say, get ready to rumble; the record setting 'Bill Hendren Memorial' is about to blast off at the 'Pittsburgher'!"


 

In 2005, Bill Hendren, the patriarch of the Hendren family and founder of Hendren Racing Engines, had the foresight to began building his affiliation with crate racing. As many of his open engine customers looked to crate racing as an opportunity to continue racing Bill began offering free advice via the well know 4M.net message board. As the concept grew throughout the country, his generosity and expertise was rewarded as many of those who had utilized his knowledge in the beginning utilized him as their engine rebuilder as their needs arose.  Bill passed away on March 19, 2011, but his legacy and dedication to crate racing lives on through his sons, Steve and Mike, as the Hendrens are recognized throughout the entire country as a leader in this specialized form of racing as they continue to operate Hendren Racing Engines. 

 

"I'll never forget the day 10 years ago in our first season of RUSH that I received a surprise phone call from Steve Hendren expressing interest in having a memorial event for his late father Bill Hendren in conjunction with a RUSH Touring event," explained Emig. "Although I never knew Bill Hendren personally, I certainly was well aware of his pioneering spirit and great success in the world of Chevrolet Performance crate engine racing. And to have the Hendren Family allow us to hold their patriarch's only memorial event of the year under the RUSH banner for the 10th straight year is truly an honor. What Steve and his family continue to do for this event is tremendous! We have to thank all of the contributors as well as the Mileys for allowing this event to be part of the 'Pittsburgher' weekend."


 

Steve Hendren, who will be making the trip up with Kate Dillon of CrateInsider.com, was inducted into the Antioch (CA) Speedway Hall of Fame shortly after the 2021 event. Hendren raced at the track weekly in the Late Model division from 1990-1993 winning 40 races and was the 1992 and 1993 champion. In 1992, Hendren won 25 features in 44 starts with 15 of them coming at Antioch, which propelled him to the NASCAR Pacific Coast Regional Championship.


 

In addition to the feature and D&V Jewelers non-qualifier purses posted each night, $100 "Shock the Clock" Qualifying and $25 to-win heat races will take place and be presented by FK Rod Ends each night. The Sunoco Dash will set the beginning rows of the feature lineups and will award the winner a $100 Sunoco fuel gift card each night. The "Fill'er up with Sunoco Bucks" program will include an additional $400 of Sunoco fuel card giveaways each night; two $100 random draws for drivers in the top 15 of Tour points and another four $50 random draws for all other competitors. 

 

Precise Racing Products will award a $50 gift card for the "Pedal Down" Hard Charger that passes the most cars in the feature each night.  The TBM Brakes “Tough Brake of the Night” will award three bottles of Xtreme6 Racing Brake Fluid each night. The feature winner each night will receive a 5-Gallon Race Jug from Precise. Ontime Body & Graphic's "Spoiler Alert" will award a spoiler kit to the 17th place finisher on the first night, 18th place finisher on the second night, and 19th place finisher on the third night (note: if a driver has already won a spoiler this season, spoiler will be awarded to the next position). Performance Bodies will award a $100 gift card to the first non-qualifier each night part of the "Nosed Out" program.

RACE LOGIC CHASSIS SCHOOL TRAVELS NORTH TO HOLD SPECIAL CRATE LATE MODEL SEMINAR IN CONJUNCTION WITH RUSH JANUARY 28-29; RACERS IN ALL OTHER DIVISIONS WELCOME

By Mike Leone


 

(September 26, 2022) - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Edinburg,PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants is proud to announce that the renowned Race Logic Chassis School will be making its first ever appearance in the North. The two-day seminar take place on Saturday and Sunday, January 28-29, 2023 at Gatherings Banquet & Event Center in Edinburg, Pa. and will also include a meet and greet on Friday night, January 27.  Though the seminars will focus on Crate Late Model racing, racers from Super Late, Pro Mod/E-Mod, and Stock Car divisions are welcome to attend, as many of the topics discussed will also apply to their forms of racing.

 

The seminar will be led by southern Crate Late Model standout, Matt Henderson, a former CUSA World Champion as well as a winner of numerous Crate Late Model crown jewel events. Other instructors include Chip Vineyard of CVR Race Cars, engineer Robby Bilbrey of RPI Racing Suspensions, Dave Hammond of Hammond Motorsports, Steve Hendren of Hendren Racing Engines, and engineer Ben Baker of AFab. RUSH Late Model Touring Series point leader Logan Roberson has campaigned a CVR Race Car throughout the 2022 season. Kate Dillon of CrateInsider.com, the country's leading supplier of all crate engine needs, will also be in attendance.   

 

"I was really excited when Matt contacted me about working with RUSH to bring the Race Logic Chassis School to the North for the first time ever," expressed RUSH Director Vicki Emig.  "Although it is billed as a Crate Late Model seminar, I hope racers that compete in other forms of Late Models, Pro Mod/E-Mods, and Stock Cars take advantage of this opportunity and attend. It's a stellar and very knowledgeable group of instructors that will be here over the three-day period, and we're thrilled to be able to bring this opportunity to our racers!"    

 

Matt Henderson, who hails from Loudon, TN, started racing at age 14 and has raced for 20 years. Henderson went through every school he could find when he started; Dale McDowell/Ray Cook & Skip Arp/Freddy Smith. Henderson also had a lot of mentors along the way something that most don’t have today. Henderson's goal is to shorten the learning curve for those coming up through the ranks and for the guys that race every week. 

 

"The seminar is not a bunch of just basic and general information," explained Henderson. "It’s as advanced as it can be. We go through everything we think a racer needs to know. In person attendance also gets you a online version for free so you can review any and all info from the class year round so that if you’re working on front end geometry, you can go to the front end segment category and refresh before you get to it on your car. It’s the most advanced, full scope, dirt late model school out there; there’s not a close second. We know there is a huge bed of Crate Late Models that race under the RUSH banner and we're really looking forward to meeting and working with their drivers to enhance their programs." 

 

The cost of the seminar is $399. All attendees will receive products or certificates valued at more than the cost of the seminar. In addition, all attendees will receive a free online version of the class that's categorized. Registration is open at https://www.racelogic.vip/courses/2023-crate-late-model-chassis-school. For more information, contact Matt at 479-461-7561.

 

Two complimentary passes will be awarded on Saturday night (October 1) at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway in the RUSH Late Model Flynn's Tire Tour "Bill Hendren Memorial". One will go to the highest finishing non-winner in the Feature and the second to the highest finishing non-winner in the Non-Qualifier.  In the event that there is no non winners in the feature, the second highest finishing non-winner in the Non-Qualifier will receive a complimentary pass.  In order to be eligible, driver cannot have won a Late Model (full-size) feature of any kind or any headlining division feature.

 

An optional meet and greet will also take place from 7-9 p.m. on Friday night, January 27 at Gatherings Banquet & Event Center located at 2552 Benjamin Franklin Hwy Route 422, Edinburg, PA 16116. The first day of the seminar will be on Saturday, January 28 from 8 a.m. until finish (lunch will be served). The second day of the seminar will be on Sunday, January 29 from 8 p.m. until 1 or 2 p.m. depending on questions and so on.
