JACOB HAWKINS WINS ADRA DIRTMASTERS CHALLENGE #7 AT OVS!

Apple Grove, WV. August 4, 2013~

Jacob Hawkins hawked a win out of the clutches of both Tim Dohm and Steve Lucas in one of the most exciting races in the history of the ADRA. There was side by side action and multiple passing going on from the front of the pack all the way to the back. The ADRA DirtMasters presented by Suddenlink and the AMRA Kryptonite Race Cars Late Models brought the house down Saturday night at the Ohio Valley Speedway in Lubeck, WV. Dark clouds threatened early on but Mother Nature stepped aside and the Masters and Krypts brought their own perfect storm! It was obvious in even in qualifying that the night was going to be bad fast in every class. www.suddenlink.com

“I have literally been to races from Florida all the way to Oregon and the racing at the Ohio Valley Speedway Saturday night was unequivocally 2nd to none, no exceptions!” proclaimed ADRA Competition Coordinator Rocky Estep. “I have paid big money to see races not even close to the action the Ohio Valley Speedway, the ADRA drivers, and the AMRA drivers brought: A shining example of preparation and opportunity coming together. When that many people work together for a common goal, it isn’t luck; its destiny.”

Tim Dohm would set fast time and win the QuickTime Fast Time Award with a 15:58. Dohm would go on to win the ADRA Super 6 Dash and start on the pole of the feature. Check out the names in the dash;

Super 6 Dash -Tim Dohm, Chris Garnes, Rick Williams, Jacob Hawkins, Dan Morrison, and 6th Bob Adams Jr.

How could the racing not be awesome? That’s not all either there were 3 more heats and 2 consys. The Top 5 of each heat are listed below. Only 2 transferred from each heat. The top 5 of the consys are also listed. 3 Transferred from the consys. 2 Provisionals were available. Complete results can be seen at www.adraracing.net. under results. 29 drivers entered the event. 20 started the feature.

1st Heat- Steve Lucas, Andy Bond, Colten Burdette, Jeremy Blake, and James Joy.

2nd Heat- Ronnie Mayle, Harold Redman Jr., Jeremy Misel, Mike Foggin, and Tom Hendrix.

3rd Heat- KC Burdette, Freddie Carpenter, Bryan Casey, Vince Toler, and Adam Miller.

Consy #1- Bryan Casey, Colton Burdette, Mike Foggin, Eric Francis, and J R Weekley.

Consy #2- Jeremy Misel, Jeremy Blake, Vince Toler, George Klintworth, and Tanner Hendrix

Dohm would lead the 1st fury of laps in the Kryptonite Race Cars 30 with a passel of speed hounds on his tail. Imagine looking back in the corner and seeing Garnes, Lucas, Hawkins, Bond, Redman Jr, Morrison, Mayle, Burdette, Casey, Williams within the same set of turns. That’s the way it was for whoever the leader was from lap to lap. No position was secure from one lap to another. Dohm, Lucas, and Hawkins would all take turns in the lead but the youngster Jacob Hawkins, only 23 years old, would lead the last one and that’s the one that paid $2000 to the winner. Even more satisfying, this win earns bragging rights as the winner of the inaugural AMRA/ADRA OVS Summer Challenge Championship: A title that carries instant clout in the Ohio Valley region. People are already talking about next year’s bout.

The top 5 of the feature was settled on the last lap as passing was taking place all through the field. In fact, there was a 2 way tie for the Dominator Performance Products Hard Charger Award. Mike Foggin and Tom Hendrix tied with both drivers having moved up 6 hard fought positions. Steve Lucas and KC Burdette were right behind them moving up 5 positions each. Some of those spots they had to take more than once as positions were being swapped nearly every lap. The thought came to me as I watched that the Super Late Model class has become a jumbo sized version of the Sprint cars capable of darting, diving and even doing a Sprint styled slide job with refined precision.

Your top 5 came in like this; Jacob Hawkins, Steve Lucas, Tim Dohm, KC Burdette, and Chris Garnes. All are past winners at OVS. That might be called a Smucker’s field. With names like that it had to be good! All that attended will attest to the fact that it was a top notch show all the way around, drivers, track, AMRA, and ADRA as well. Most of all the awesome fans made the whole night possible! Thank you each and every one and God bless you and yours. The ADRA is looking forward to our next visit to Ohio Valley Speedway. www.ohiovalleyspeedway.com

The ADRA DirtMasters presented but Suddenlink points also saw some changes as the numbers grow for the series. Bryan Casey, Wayne Huges, Jacob Hawkins, Rod Conley, and Jared Hawkins are the top 5. 110 different drivers have competed with the ADRA so far in 2013 in only 7 completed races to date. A regional series like the ADRA of course brings some stars with us but just as importantly we make stars or perhaps expose stars in a better way to word it. By promoting our drivers they receive the exposure they deserve and folks start to learn their names and look for them at their local tracks. When there is a special event at their track they almost expect to see some of these guys and gals once they begin to follow their careers. Some will even go as far as to begin to travel to all their new-found favorite driver’s events. That is how the ADRA helps our tracks and drivers by introducing drivers, tracks and/or promoters, and promoting their events. Most folks would be surprised how few people know they race or even know there is a dirt track within minutes of their homes. The ADRA plants seeds that make our sport grow through promotion and affordability. WE MAKE DIRT FLY!

The ADRA would like to extend a special thanks to the Racers In Christ Ministry. Tony Dillow and Jesse Dillow our series Chaplains conducted a trackside service before the event and passed out free Bibles to folks all evening. The RIC has been with the ADRA since our inception and have spread the good news of Jesus Christ everywhere we’ve gone. To learn more about the RIC and check out their schedule for the Racers In Christ #25 Lazer driven by Bryan Casey who also leads the ADRA DirtMasters Challenge Series point race, go to www.racersinchrist.com

The ADRA DirtMasters would also like to thank Freddie Carpenter and Kryptonite Race Cars for sponsoring this event. We would also like to thank the AMRA for slinging dirt with us. We look forward to working together in the future. www.amramodified.com Thanks to the Ohio Valley Speedway for making us feel so welcome. We greatly appreciate the hospitality and all the hard work Wayne McPeek and his crew obviously put into their facility. OVS is top notch in this region and any other and we’ve seen a bunch of them.

The ADRA DirtMasters presented by Suddenlink will be at the WV Motor Speedway on Thursday August 29th and 30th for the 2013 Racefest. This is one the areas crown jewel events as the ADRA DirtMasters, the World of Outlaw Late Models, the OVSCA Sprint cars, the Renegades of Dirt Modifieds, and the Ohio Valley Front Wheel Drive 4cyls come to Mineral Wells, WV. The ADRA DirtMasters will be featured Thursday night August 29th in the “ADRA SUDDENLINK 40” paying $4000 to win and $400 to start PLUS 2 provisionals into the World of Outlaws $10,000 to win $700 to start event on Friday August 30th.

ADRA DIRTMASTERS RAIN MAKE UP AT OVS SAT AUG 3
Apple Grove, WV July 29, 2013~

The ADRA DirtMasters (www.adraracing.net) presented by Suddenlink (www.suddenlink.com ) and the AMRA Kryptonite Race Cars Late Models (www.amramodified.com) brought 32 super late models to the Ohio Valley Speedway in Lubeck, WV last Saturday night but unfortunately the rains came with us. Early on it appeared we might get the show in as the crowd began to fill the stands but the skies opened up during the Mini Wedge races and we were forced to regroup. So we will do it again this Saturday August 3rd. Any armbands and tickets sold on the July 27 date will be honored on August 3rd as well but you must display your ticket or armband to gain admission. www.ohiovalleyspeedway.com)

DRIVERS PAY ATTENTION TO THESE NEXT 2 PARAGRAPHS ABOUT THE ADRA PROVISIONALS FOR THE AUG 30 WoO LATE MODEL RACE AT WVMS. There is an added bonus to this weekend’s event. There will be 2 provisionals available as a result of the ADRA’s upcoming Racefest 2013 event at WV Motor Speedway on Thursday night August 29. The 2 ADRA provisionals are for the $10,000 to win $700 to start WoO Late Model event taking place on Friday August 30th. These are 2 provisionals guaranteed to go to someone no “if’s” “ands” or “but’s”.

1st WVMS Provisional- The highest finisher in the ADRA DirtMasters Late Model Thursday Night 40 lap event that does not make the field on Friday will get the 1st of the 2 provisionals. This provisional was provided by the WVMS promoter Lynn Chapman. www.wvspeedway.com

2nd Suddenlink ADRA Provisional- The highest in ADRA DirtMaster Late Model Challenge point standings will get the 2nd of the 2 provisionals. This provisional is made possible by Suddenlink. This means the 25 show up points received by the 32 drivers that were there this week PLUS the points from the “Kryptonite Race Cars 30” paying $2000 to win at OVS this Saturday August 3rd PLUS the points from the $4000 to win $400 to start ADRA DirtMasters “Suddenlink 40” on August 29th will be precious in qualifying for this coveted provisional. The points go with the driver not the car in the ADRA so it doesn’t matter which car you bring. The driver must hold a valid ADRA annual license to be eligible. The ADRA License can be obtained from the ADRA at the race this Saturday or mail $50 money order or cashier’s check made out to the ADRA at P.O. BOX 207 Apple Grove, WV 25502.

We didn’t get any qualifying started this past Saturday so a complete redraw and qualifying session will take place. Registration is still open to any additional late model drivers who would like to enter the “Kryptonite Race Cars30 “this Saturday August 3rd. Gate prices are the same $15 for General Admission. Kids 10 and under FREE! It is still just $30 for the pits. If that ain’t family friendly priced fun than it doesn’t exist! The food at the track is awesome too and equally well priced. Gates open at 4 PM racing at 7:30 PM. There are 32 Late Models already signed in so come early to get the best parking spots and seats.

The Racers In Christ (www.racersinchrist.com) will be with us again this week as well. We have a good time in the Lord wherever we go but when we can do it at a race track it’s an extra special blessing so we are going to have a trackside service at the RIC tent at 6:00 PM on Saturday for anyone who wants to join us. We pray together, hear the Word from the RIC Ministry, and sometimes we even do some singing but we ALWAYS praise the Lord. Feel free to testify. We love to share in the blessings!

Drivers the ADRA standard punch 40 tire rule we have used since 2011 is in effect. This rule is the center piece of the ADRA. The rule works very well to save drivers money on tires and helps to level the field for the lower budget teams. We have only 2 repeat winners in the nearly 3 year history of the ADRA; Eddie Carrier JR. and Donnie Moran. We are pretty pleased with how the rule has performed. 

THE ADRA/AMRA SUPER LATE MODELS SET TO IGNITE OVS!

Apple Grove, WV July 22, 2013~ The ADRA DirtMasters Late Model Challenge Series presented by Suddenlink and the AMRA Kryptonite Race Cars Weekly Racing Series will take on the Ohio Valley Speedway Saturday July 27th with championship points being awarded to both sanctions. This will be the 1st time the 2 series have met at OVS and the stage is set perfectly for one of the most exciting events of the season as the best of the best converge on the 3/8ths mile clay oval in Lubeck, WV. http://www.ohiovalleyspeedway.com/

The ADRA DirtMasters Challenge Series presented by Suddenlink is a regional series that races in the Ohio Valley region. The AMRA Kryptonite Race Cars Late Models sanctions weekly late models at tracks in the Ohio Valley region as well although between the 2 series drivers from all over the United States and even Australia have participated in our events.

The American Motor Racing Association based in Racine, OH comes into this event with Ronnie Mayle of Chesterhill, OH in the #50 Rocket leading the points in weekly competition for the AMRA Kryptonite Race Cars sponsored Late Models. Mayle is followed closely by Andy Bond in the #01 out of Coolville, OH and Chris Garnes in the #42 out of Evans, WV.

The American Dirt Racing Association enters this challenge with “The Coshocton Ironman” Bryan Casey leading the points in the Racers In Christ Ford powered #25 Lazer. ‘The Junk Man” Wayne Hughes in the 1H Rocket out of Beckley, WV has advanced to 2nd place with a recent win at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Hanover, WV. “Hot Rod” Rod Conley in the #71R Rocket falls to 3rd.

The 2 series will be competing for a very respectable $2000 to win purse but more importantly a victory in this star-studded field will be especially sweet to one lucky driver as they will walk away with some pretty lofty bragging rights. The plan is to grow this as an annual event at OVS so it will be possible to either retain the title or pass it on each year. Perhaps a fan contest to “name the title” will be in order.

The gates will open at 4 PM. Racing at 7:30 PM. General Admission is only $15 for Adults. Kids 10 and under FREE! Pits are just $30. The concessions at OVS are awesome so don’t worry about food, just eat at the track. Kids look for the Racers In Christ booth for free Bibles and a wide variety of light up toys and souvenirs.

With $2,000 to win on the line for the ADRA DirtMasters (http://www.adraracing.net/) 40 lap feature it was Duane Chamberlain of Richmond, Indiana on the pole with Chad Stapleton on the outside. At the drop of the green Chamberlain jumped out front in his St Henry Night Club sponsored machine with Stapleton in pursuit. Despite a couple of cautions that slowed the event the man on the move was Ethan Burgess who didn’t even qualify or run a heat race due to power steering woes. The youngster started 17th and was up to 6th when he tangled with a lapped car on lap 23. Burgess would go on to take the Dominator Race Products Hard Charger award (http://www.dominatorraceprodicts.com/) despite the earlier altercation. On the restart it was again Chamberlain out front with Stapleton applying pressure on the low side but after a couple of laps they would return to single file while 3rd place running John Whitney would fight off Rod Conley in 3rd and put pressure on Stapleton. At the end there was no stopping the Best Performance machine of Chamberlain as he would claim the checkers. Whitney would get past Stapleton for second spot with Rod Conley and Mark Frazier rounding out top 5 spots. Chamberlain won the Quick 6 Dash while ADRA DirtMaster point leader, Rod Conley, and 2nd place in DirtMaster challenge points, Brian Casey, won heat races.

DROWN WINS HILLTOP'S 1st JERRY REED MEMORIAL;
Saturday, May 18, 2013
Millersburg, Ohio
By Mike Swanger

The ADRA presented by Sudden Link ( www.suddenlink.com ) pulled into Hilltop Speedway Saturday night for the first annual Jerry Reed Memorial race. Reed was the track chaplain since the track reopened back in 2006 and had passed to be with the Lord in Heaven during the off season. Wooster's Doug Drown started the night out by setting the Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast time and then with the ADRA's driver redraw of the six fastest pulled the #1 pill to start on the pole of the dash but it was George Lee taking the win from the second starting position. At the start of the 30 lap main, Lee set the pace for the opening 13 circuits with Drown right with him and as they started into lapped traffic, Lee got blocked and Drown went low to swipe the point and Lee would now become the chaser. Behind the two front runners, JR Gentry, Rod Conley, Charlie Duncan, Scott Peltz, Rick Bond and Ryan Markham were bunched together for the third spot. At the 10 to go mark, Drown and his Weekley Electric and Wooster Glass #63 had opened up about a five car length lead of Lee as Duncan, Gentry and Conley in the top five as Bond, Markham and Todd Brennan was battling for position. The caution flew on lap 24 when Markham was charged for spinning out Brennan. Using the Delaware restart line up for the restart, Drown stayed out front as Gentry powered past Duncan for third and then with three laps to go moved past Lee for second. Coming out of turn four with the white flag waving, Gentry was able to show his nose to Drown but could not make the pass as Drown won his third feature of the season at Hilltop.( www.hilltopspeedway.org ) Lee and Duncan trailed as Brennan passed Conley on the next to last lap for fifth. Heat winners were Duncan and Markhingam. Todd Brennan and Aaron Phillis tied for the Dominator Race Products Hard Charger Award; both advancing 5 spots. ( www.dominatorraceproducts.com )

The Racers In Christ Ministry (RIC) will team up once again in 2013 with the ADRA to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all those who have a desire. The RIC provides free Bibles and literature for those in need as well as spiritual inspiration. (We’ll pray with you!) The ADRA feels it is very important to hold on to our American values and character especially in this age of anti-Christ and anti-American sentiment. Trusting in God and dirt racing is about as American and it gets and we like it that way! (www.racersinchrist.com)

The 2012 Season ended with the Epic Weekend at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, OH. This was a Twin feature event paying $10,000 each. The winner of the 2nd feature had the choice of taking the cash or opting to receive a Harley V-Rod. A record 41 entrants attended this inaugural event for the ADRA with Jackie Boggs out of Grayson, KY in the familiar 4B Swartz chassis taking the 1st feature in dominating fashion after coming from a 6th place starting position and almost immediately assuming control of the lead. Boggs ironically lapped the entire field up to 6th place where he started. Jackie Boggs is the winningest driver in the history of this event known as the Heritage Classic in which a Harley Davidson has been in the offering since the onset of this annual event in 2001.

The 2nd feature saw World of Outlaws stand out Shane Clanton in victory lane after a hard fought battle as the 2nd feature was full of action which resulted in several cautions. Local favorite Ben Adkins in the #57 Swartz car held the lead for the lion’s share of the event but Clanton would catch Adkins and after a cobbled restart with 4 to go Clanton stole the lead and went on to victory lane. Clanton would later opt to receive the Harley V-Rod rather than the $10,000 cash payout.

The final event would have been the ADRA Dirt Master’s Championship which was schedule for Oct.6th at the WV Motor Speedway was rained out. Due to the other special events happening in that time of the year the onslaught of inclimate weather it was decided not to reschedule the event. This left the ADRA point standings after the Epic Weekend at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex as our final 2012 results and “Hot Rod” Rod Conley in the #71R Rocket chassis out of Wheelersburg, OH our 2012 ADRA Dirt Late Model Series Champion. Rocket Chassis claimed 8 of 10 of the top 10 in ADRA points with Swartz and Mastersbilt claiming the 3rd and 7th respectively.

The 2012 ADRA Dirt Late Model Championship Top 10 ended in this order;

1.       Rod Conley, Wheelersburg, OH.

2.       Doug Drown, Newark, OH.

3.       Russ Frohnapfel, Chillicothe, OH.

4.       Zach Dohm, Crosslanes, WV.

5.       Tim Dohm, Crosslanes, WV.

6.       Greggie Oliver, Jackson, OH.

7.       Donnie Moran, Zanesville, OH.

8.       Jason Jameson, Lawrenceburg, IN.

9.       Freddie Carpenter, Parkersburg, WV.

10.     Eddie Carrier Jr. Salt Rock, WV.

 

There were 8 different winners in 9 ADRA events in 2012 with Donnie Moran being the only repeat winner of the year. There was a grand total of $134,468 paid out to the 2012 ADRA drivers. That averages out to $14,941 as the average cost of an ADRA Super Late Model event even with the higher paying events tallied in. It is evident by the list of winners below and the caliber of talent listed in results on our website at www.adraracing.net, the ADRA is a great deal for the track and provides a really decent pay for the drivers as each race pays a minimum $300 to start. We also averaged out to just over $16 per general admission ticket again even with the bigger events included. That is a win for the tracks, a win for the drivers, and a definite win for our fans in our book. Check out our feature winners list:

1.       Jason Jameson, Moler Raceway Park, Williamsburg, OH $3000

2.       Donnie Moran, Muskingum County Speedway, Zanesville, OH. $3000

3.       George Lee, Hilltop Speedway, Millersburg OH $3000

4.       Doug Drown, Twin Feature 1 Jackson County Speedway, Jackson, OH. $1500

5.       Tim Dohm, Twin Feature 2 Jackson County Speedway, Jackson, OH $1500

6.       Zach Dohm, Midway Speedway, Crooksville, OH. $5000

7.       Donnie Moran, WV Motor Speedway, Mineral Wells, WV $3000

8.       Jackie Boggs, Twin Feature 1 Brushcreek Motorsports Complex $10,000

9.        Shane Clanton, Twin Feature 2 Brushcreek Motorsports Complex $10,000

Mineral Wells, WV (10/05/2012) – This weekend’s forecast for colder temperatures and precipitation has forced the cancellation of the American Dirt Racing Association’s (ADRA) “Dirt Master Championship”. West Virginia Motor Speedway’s (WVMS) Track management in conjunction with ADRA officials made the decision to cancel the event Thursday evening.

“Based on the precipitation and temperatures forecasted for Saturday, Rocky Estep (race director, ADRA) and I have decided it is in the fan’s and racer’s best interest to cancel the ADRA “Dirt Master Championship”, said WVMS track president Lynn Chapman. “There have been several racers and fans show interest in this event who will have to travel a long distance to get here. We want to make sure they have plenty of time to make alternative plans to either race or spectate. I hate that we have to cancel the race this weekend, I felt like we really were going to have a special event.”

The cancellation of the October 6th event ends the 2012 season at WVMS. Donnie Moran won the inaugural September 16th event on WVMS’s new configuration.

“I feel confident that with the new track management and staff in place, we’ll raise the bar in 2013 for fans and racers. I’m excited about the schedule we’re going to have in place for next year. It will return this track back to form and where it should be.” said Chapman.

The 2013 track schedule for WVMS will be finalized and announced in the coming months.

“The Million Dollar Man” Donnie Moran
Dominates WVMS “Buzzy Topless Classic”




Apple Grove, WV. September 20, 2012~The “Million Dollar Man” Donnie Moran of Zanesville, OH dominated the 1st Annual Buzzy Topless Classic at the newly reconfigured WV Motor Speedway. www.wvspeedway.com. Moran became the 1st repeat winner of 2012 after 7 of 10 scheduled events for the ADRA Dirt Late Model Championship Series presented by Suddenlink! www.suddenlink.com. Promoter Lynn Chapman and the WVMS crew performed a yeoman’s task getting the facility ready to race in such a short time. Buzzy Holiday, the event name-sake, and crew put in countless hours reconstructing the facility and preparing the track surface. The ADRA is looking forward to our next visit to “the Speed Plant” on October 6th for race number 10 of 10.

The American Dirt Racing Association Dirt Late Model Championship Series, now in its 2nd year, is a regional Super Late Model Series competing primarily in the WV, OH, and KY Tri-state region. Our goal is to work with our region’s tracks and drivers to orchestrate special events that treat our fans to dirt racing action as fine as anywhere in the country at a family friendly price. WE MAKE DIRT FLY! www.adraracing.net.

Moran won the ADRA Super 8 Dash to gain the pole position in this inaugural event after drawing #1 in the dash redraw. That was all that was needed to take command of the event. The ADRA Super 8 Dash was a teeming with a wealth of talent; Donnie Moran, Jared Hawkins, Eddie Carrier, JR, Chris Garnes, Stevie Lucas, Rod Conley, Zack Dohm , and Freddie Carpenter. The “Salt Rock Express” Eddie Carrier Jr. would make his presence known in the feature by bringing the #28 Grover Motor Sports Rocket to 2nd from a 6th place start as he got by, Jared Hawkins who settled in on a 3rd place finish in the #37. Doug Drown in the #63 Weekley Electric Rocket annihilated the field to win heat race #1 starting from dead last after a horrendous crash into the turn 1-2 wall in warm-ups and was not expected to return. Drown would prove with certainty everyone was wrong by extending his campaign on the field finish 4th in the feature and take yet another Dominator Hard Charger Award.

Delmas Conley would also show why he is ranked with the best of the best with a 2nd place finish in heat #1 followed by “King” Sonny Conley 2 time “King of the Mountains” Late Model Champion in his new #1x1 Rocket. Sonny would go on to finish 8th in the feature while Delmas brought his #71 Rocket in 9th.

Heat Race #2 saw the #Y4 Tru-Tech Chassis of Anthony Huber take the victory with the #12B of Travis Brookover in tow followed by the “Franklin County Flyer” Russ Frohnapfel in the #45. The #02 of Jason Flory also had a strong run winning the consy with #45(X) of Nick Corbit and the #64 of Marshall Wiblin rounding out the top 18 in the field. The #DT1 of Darin Roush would take the ADRA series provisional. The track did not have a provisional available since it was their 1st race of 2012.

“Hot Rod” Rod Conley maintains the series lead by a mere 14 points with an impressive 5th place run in an elite field of our regions very finest competitors. (Rod) Conley in the #71R took the points lead after race #2 of the 10 race schedule. Long time regional veteran Russ Frohnapfel in the #45, who has been a strong runner all year, in spite of engine woes managed to race his way into the field but slipped to 3rd in the points after the afore mentioned crusade by Doug Drown. Donnie Moran holds 4th and the “Zack Attack” Zack Dohm in the #17 Rocket chassis rounds out the top 5 in points. The #C4 Tru-Tech of “Fast Freddie” Carpenter looms just 9 points behind in 6th place.

The ADRA’s next stop will be races number 8 and 9 in Peebles, OH at yet another successfully reconfigured track known as “the Creek”. The 3/10ths mile track at Brushcreek Motor Sports Complex will host “One Epic Weekend” featuring the ADRA Dirt Late Models presented by Suddenlink, the OVSCA 410 Sprints, and the UMP Dirtcar Modifieds on September 27-29. There is nearly $88,000 in purse payouts being offered over 3 days and 7 classes involved in this “Epic Weekend”! This is definitely a “MUST SEE” event neither the drivers nor fans will want to miss!

The ADRA Late Models will compete in the American Heritage Classic. This will be twin 50 lap features paying $10,000 to win each! The winner of the 2nd feature will have the choice of taking the cash or a sweet 2012 Harley Davidson V-Rod! www.brushcreekmotorsports.com. Here is the catch; the 2nd segment is completely inverted! As the good book says, “The first shall be last and the last shall be first!” (Matt. 20:16) This will create a host of scenarios. A racer’s natural tendency is to win. In this race the decision must include consideration of where their finish in segment 1 will place them for the start of the 2nd segment. Both segments will count as full ADRA points as well so this race will definitely affect the ADRA championship battle. To win both segments will require a herculean effort and quite frankly some luck!

Kids be sure to stop by the Racers In Christ booth. They will have the jump house this race. Last race they had an availability problem but that won’t be a problem this race. As always, there will be free Bibles on hand and plenty of spiritual inspiration for anyone in need. We still have a few ADRA T-shirts left and those will also be available at the RIC booth. www.racersinchrist.com.

Drown and Dohm Take JCS Super Mixers!

Next Stop Jim Dunn Memorial!

Point Pleasant, WV. Aug 7, 2012~The ADRA Dirt Late Models (www.adraracing.net) presented by Suddenlink (http://www.suddenlink.com/) lit up the newly remodeled Jackson County Speedway (http://www.jacksoncospeedway.com/) last Friday night with the ADRA/AMRA Twin 25 Super Mixers. In spite of encroaching rains in the area the awesome Jackson County fans still packed the house. The concessions ran out of food and restocked again! JCS fans were treated to 2 action packed ADRA Late Model 25 lap features along with a ground pounder of an AMRA Modified (http://www.amramodified.com/) $800 to win special plus Outlaw 4’s, Mod Lites, and Mini Wedges. The night would be jam-packed with great racing action in every class!

The night began with the #63 Weekley Electric (http://www.weekleyelectric.com/ ) entry of Doug Drown edging out hometown hot shoe Jason Montgomery in the #21 for fast time by mere 100ths of a second. The top 5 times were separated by less than blink as the surface was smooth and racy. This was further demonstrated by our Hard Charger results. Three hard charger awards were posted; Greggie Oliver in the #47 was the over-all hard charger winner taking the Racers In Christ (http://www.racersinchrist.com/) $50 award with a total of 14 commanding passes in both features combined. Tony Roush in the #T8 would move up 11 spots in the 1st feature to take one of the Dominator Race Products (http://www.dominatorraceproducts.com/) awards and Fast Freddie Carpenter who was running the borrowed #16 car owned by Rod Gibson fought from 19th to 8th to win the 2nd Dominator Race Products award. The 3 Hard Chargers racked up an incredible 36 passes combined! Kudos to the Jackson County Speedway track crew for yet another awesome job insuring the surface was right for racing!

Doug Drown would take the win in the ADRA Super 8 Dash and go on to win the 1st ADRA Twin 25 feature as well after a hard fought battle with Steve Weigle in the #75 entry coming down from Tyler County WV to make the show and make the show he did. Weigle but on an awesome display of driving skill working his way up to the lead after a fierce multi-lap side by side battle with race leader Drown. The tandem had the crowd on their feet but after getting together in turn 4 as Weigle completed the pass with 4 to go Drown would spin and Weigle was arguably credited with the caution. The “Show Stopper” Tim Dohm in the #6T out of Crosslanes, WV would re-inherit 2nd and Drown would hang on for the win. ADRA point’s leader “Hot Rod” Rod Conley in the #71R would fight his way to 3rd, with 2nd place point’s runner Russ Frohnapfel in the #45 taking 4th. Hard Charger Greggie Oliver rounded out the top 5 after a mechanical problem during qualifying knocked him out of the Super 8 Dash.

In the 2nd feature Jack Martin III in the #00 would start of the pole after a complete redraw of the entire field set the staging order. Street Stock super star Jamie Adams in the familiar #42A in only his 2nd Late Model start would start on the outside pole and waste no time going to the lead. His lead would be short lived as the “Show Stopper” Tim Dohm would assume the lead. “Hot Rod” Conley would make his way through the field from a 9th place start to take 3rd but a near calamity in turn 1-2 would back him up several positions. Conley would eventually finish 6th and hold onto his points lead by a mere 12 points. Adams would make several bids to retake the lead but eventually ended up in 2nd. Russ Frohnapfel would gain a few hard fought points on Conley with his 3rd place finish. The ever-present threat to win Steve Weigle would claw his way to 4th, and RIC Hard Charger winner Greggie Oliver rounded out the top 5 for a 2nd time of the evening. Heat race winners were the “Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter in the #28 and Jeremy Misel in the #J52.

The ADRA Dirt Late Models presented by Suddenlink will be at the “Jim Dunn” Memorial on Sunday August 12th at the Malta Windows Midway Speedway in Crooksville, OH for our next event. This 40 lap event will pay $5000 to win and is one of the most coveted titles in all of dirt racing. The AMRA Modifieds will also be running along with Street Stocks, Outlaw 4’s, and Mini Wedges.

ADRA Dirt Late Model Series Present The ADRA Twin 25’s Super Mixer At Jackson County Speedway

 

 Point Pleasant, WV. July 28, 2012~On Friday, August 3rd, the ADRA and AMRA sanctions presented by Suddenlink will do battle at Brad McCown’s Jackson County Speedway in Jackson, Ohio. Two features with each paying a purse of $1,500 to win each and $150 to start giving the drivers a chance to come away winning over $3,000 or a minimum of $300 to start both features. Both AMRA and ADRA drivers will get points for both races. This format amounts to both AMRA and ADRA awarding double points for the night’s event. There will be no AMRA fees for this event. The ADRA has no membership fees. The top 10 in ADRA Championship points will have a no entry fee. For all others only a $40 entry fee applies. It just doesn’t get any more affordable for our regions Late Model stars to get a legitimate shot at well over $11,000 cash and 2 point funds! Drivers from all over the region will be filing in for this 1st of its kind inaugural event.

The ADRA tries to make every show as fan friendly as possible as well as challenging to the drivers. The Twin 25’s Super Mixer will be no exception. Hot laps and one lap qualifying will go as usual. We will also present the fan favorite “Super 8 Dash” where the top 8 qualifiers transfer into the feature on qualifying times but will redraw on the front stretch for their dash starting positions. A 10 lap dash will determine the top 8 starting positions in the first feature. All other cars will compete in 10 lap heat races where the top 2 - 4 (depending on car count) transfer to the feature. Last chance 12 lap B-mains will determine the remainder of the field. There will be 2 provisionals for this event with Jason Montgomery and Greggie Oliver having first dibs as a result of their 1st and 2nd place respective finishes in the ADRA Qualifier on July 6th. All restarts in the A-main features will be Delaware Double File until 5 to go in each segment.

Here is where the” Mixer” comes into play: During driver introductions for the 1st segment, a group of young fans (which previously will win redraw duties via a youth ticket drawing to be held prior to introductions) will be redrawing on the front stretch with their respective driver for the starting order of the entire field for the 2nd 25 lap feature. A driver could start anywhere in the field. Any car not able to make the call for the 2nd feature will be replaced by the 1st nontransferring entry from the B-mains. Both segments will start a full field of at least 18 cars minimum. Also, for the ADRA drivers, 2 bonus points per position improved in the 2nd feature will be awarded toward their championship total. To make it interesting, several businesses are sponsoring contingencies, fast time awards, and hard charger awards, so a lot of extra money is on the line above the posted purse as well as assuring every non-transferring driver that starts a Bmain a minimum of $100. The cash opportunities and championship point scenarios are virtually endless!

ADRA & Weekley Electric Mid Season Championship Weekend - Night #2

George “The General” Lee Didn’t Let Up To Win At Hilltop Speedway

 

With rain all over the Ohio area, none hit the Millersburg, Oh, Hilltop Speedway as 30 cars and stars came to do battle on the 1/3 mile track for the first trip of the ADRA series to the northern tracks of the region.  Doug Drown set fast time of the 30 cars and drew first in the Super 8 dash lineup.  For the second straight night the fastest car drew the 8th spot and Drown had to prove to be the fastest like Moran did the night before.  The front row this time went to Wayne Maffett Jr and Ross Nicastri.  Nacastri didn’t falter this night has he went on to win the pole.   Doug Drown came to the 3rd spot as George Lee would pick up the 2nd spot a front row feature spot.

 

Heat #1, which the top 2 moved on to the feature, saw Mark Gardiner beat Russ Frohnapfel for the two transfer spots.  Others in the heat that just came up short were Brad Malcuit and Eric Myers.

 

Heat #2, was a battle between two veterans as Keith Berner outlasted ADRA point leader Rod Conley to the checkers. The next two not making it was Dave Hornikel and Bryan Casey.

 

Heat #3, was the beginning of Donnie Moran’s quest for the Weekley Electric $1,000 bonus as he won the heat over Charlie Duncan.  Tonight’s crate car came from K C Burdette but came up on position short followed by Wesley Hutchison.

 

Consy #1, still only had 2 transfers to the feature as KC Burdette wound up his crate to keep the lead over Brad Malcuit.  Coming up short in the race was Ryan Markham who could track down the duo.

 

Consy #2, went to the track regulars of Dave Hornikel and Wesley Hutchison.  Hornikel looked very good in the consy and would show it in the feature as well.  The nights hard luck award would go to Shane McLoughlin as he blew up in qualifying.

 

In the feature, Ross Nicastri would go out to the lead over Doug Drown and George Lee.  Nicastri held on for the beginning of the race until Drown took over the point.   George Lee kept it on the high side of the speedway and showed many drivers the fast way around.  One that he showed was Dave Hornikel, which started 16th and came to finish 6th, collecting the hard charger of the night.  Lee wouldn’t be denied the high side of the track and picked off Nicastri and finally Drown to go on to win night #2 of the ADRA Mid Season Championship.

ADRA & Weekley Electric Mid Season Championship Weekend - Night #1

Donnie Moran Picks Up His First ADRA Series Win At Muskingham County Speedway

With threatening weather to the south of the Zanesville, Oh, Muskingham County Speedway, 24 cars and stars came to do battle on the 4/10 mile track for the first trip of the ADRA series to the northern tracks of the region.  Donnie Moran set fast time of the 24 cars and drew first in the Super 8 dash lineup.  The Super 8 Dash, for the fans that have not seen one of the ADRA Series races yet is the top 8 times line up on the front stretch and redraw for a ten lap dash to set the first 4 rows of the feature.  Moran, with the applause of the crowd, drew the #8 position, while the #1 wasn’t drawn by anyone so it went to the 8th fastest driver, the Aussie, Ross Nicastri.  The pole position didn’t fare well for Nicastri as he finished 8th to start in that position in the feature.   Doug Drown went to the front and won the dash to start on the pole of the feature.  Donnie Moran came from 8th to 2nd to be the other on the front row.

 

Heat race #1, which the top 3 moves on to the feature, saw Shane McLoughlin take the lead and leave the others to do battle for the other two transfer spots.  Steve Prince, Russ Frohnapfel and Brad Malcuit went all out to make the show, changing position many times but Prince and Frohnapfel  moved on to the feature.

 

Heat race #2, saw Steve Casebolt move out to a big led and never challenged.  Gary Gellner ran a clean heat to finish 2nd.  George Lee, which started the night not qualifying because of problems with the car, started in the 8th spot and came to 3rd to be the last to transfer to the feature.

 

In the Consy, the final 4 positions were determined, as Brad Malcuit would go to the front.  Muskingham County Speedway regulars did battle for the final spots and it got wild for a few.  Hiram Bachman’s night ended when he hit the front stretch wall.  Todd Brennan, who had a great qualifying time, got ran over the front of the car in the heat and messed up the handling, couldn’t get it fixed and came up one position short.   The only crate car, Boz Daughtery, pick up the final spot in the feature.  Matt Mallett and Bryan Casey finished 2nd and 3rd to move on.  Other cars not making the show were Cody Smith, Doug Kenworthy and Chad Hina who retired after the heat race.

 

In the feature, Doug Drown would go out to a big lead over Donnie Moran as the front runners showed the fast line around the top of the speedway.  Behind the duo, the three wide action was intense between Keith Berner, Zack Dohm and Devin Moran.  The three switch positions many times giving the fans a great show.  The best show came from the hard charging George Lee, which didn’t qualify and by the end of the night came from 24th to finish 10th.  As the show wound down and the leaders got to lap traffic, Drown slowed down while Donnie Moran and Keith Berner got faster.  Moran would go to the front around lap 18 and Berner would break away from the third place battle to move to 2nd ahead of Drown with 5 laps to go.  Donnie Moran proved to be the fastest car of the night and go on to win night #1 of the Weekley Electric ADRA Mid Season Championship and be eligible for the $1,000 bonus for the best average finish of the weekend.
