Point Leaders Triumph on Midseason Championship Night at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA - Midseason championship night is always among the biggest events of the summer, as fans pack Skagit Speedway for great racing and a huge fireworks display put on by Les Schwab. As the dust settled, the four division point leaders all found victory lane as main event winners were Robbie Price, Kelsey Carpenter, Kevin Smith and Vance Hibbard.
In a theme that would prevail throughout the evening, Price got out to a gigantic lead early in the Budweiser 360 Sprint main event that would never be cut into, as he lapped nearly half the field in a non stop twenty five lap affair. Price's second win of the season came ahead of Eric Fisher who won the scramble and Colton Heath. Greg Hamilton was the fastest of the time trial cars.
Carpenter was similarly dominant in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints, leading by huge margins throughout the affair. Numerous cautions kept Kelsey in clean air most of the race, which he capitalized on in taking the win, his fifth at Skagit Speedway on the year and sixth overall. Cory Swatzina and Bill Rude both made big charges up the field to secure podium finishes, with Swatzina moving from 11th to second and Rude from 14th to third. Carpenter won the scramble and Julian Fuentes set quick time.
Kevin Smith led wire to wire in the High Society Modified main event. Smith had a challenge or two from his brother Rick early but pulled ahead each time to grab the win. He also won the scramble. Rick Smith came out on top of entertaining duel for third with Lawrence O'Connor.
Unlike the previous winners, Vance Hibbard did take on a challenge for his win, as Clint Meins kept Hibbard within nearly a car length for most of their feature. Hibbard expertly moved around, searching for the right line while leading every lap under Clint's pressure to get the win. Meins would settle for second with Brian Michelson in third. Meins and Hibbard also had an entertaining back and forth race in the scramble with Vance coming out on top.

Heath Gets Hot in Dirt Cup Tune Up
Alger, WA - The final tune up for the Budweiser 360 Sprint Cars before the 46th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup was won by Colton Heath on a gorgeous night for racing at Skagit Speedway. Joining Heath in victory lane were Kelsey Carpenter, Lawrence O'Connor and Vance Hibbard.
Three time and defending Skagit Speedway 360 champion Colton Heath won the final feature before the 46th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup coming up on June 22, 23 and 24. In a race that went green to checkered with no stoppages, Robbie Price set out to the early lead with Heath advancing to second from his fourth place starting spot. Price, the Cobble Hill, BC teenager, set a wicked pace, quickly carving his way through slower cars as he tried distancing himself from the champ. Heath was up to the challenge, dispatching of the traffic at a rapid pace himself while narrowing the distance between himself and Robbie. On lap 18, Colton's opportunity came as Price hung himself a bit too wide off the outside of four, giving Heath the top spot as he got good drive off the low groove exiting the turn. Robbie tried darting back underneath Colton as the pair raced on lap 19, but Heath held serve and tried to jet away. JJ Hickle had others plans, dispatching of Price and closing to within a couple of car lengths on lap 22, but Colton continued to hit his marks, pulling away on the last lap to take his first win of 2017. Hickle would settle for second with Price third. Jason Solwold was quick time. Trey Starks and Eric Fisher won the heats,
Kelsey Carpenter is now four for six at Skagit Speedway and five for seven on the year as the Burlington, WA driver brought Bill Rude's car to victory lane at Skagit Speedway in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Michael Hodel led the first 18 laps on the main event as Carpenter tried to work his way up the field from his fifth place starting spot. Up to third by a lap 14 red for Bailey Sucich, Carpenter made his way by Trevor Cook for second, then past the lapped car of Bert Johnson Jr before taking aim at Hodel. With his car on rails around the high side, Carpenter swept into the lead at the completion of the 19th lap before a red flag for car owner / teammate Rude halted the race. After the open red, Kelsey streaked away to take the win, with Hodel and Cook trading second place back and forth before Hodel took it away, relegating Cook to third. Paul Burdick set quick time. Heat wins went to Ashleigh Johnson, Adam Hinds and Bailey Sucich.
Lawrence O'Connor won his second straight High Society Modified main. After leading the first six laps, Kevin Smith took the lead from O'Connor on a lap seven restart, using the high side of turn three and four to rocket into the lead. O'Connor returned Smith a dose of his own medicine, using the same move on lap nine to retake the top spot. Cautions plagued the race late, with Smith trying every move in the book on multiple restarts to try and pass Lawrence, but the Port Hardy, BC native had the correct counter every time to hold him off and grab the victory. Adam Holtrop thrilled the crowd with a last lap dash around Smith to collect second. Kevin would take third, as well as a heat race win. The other heat winner was his brother Rock.
In his tenth year of Outlaw Tuner racing, Vance Hibbard picked up his first feature win, leading laps eight through seventeen on his way to his first feature victory. Brian Michelson was second and Dylan Acidera took a career best third place. Hibbard and Michelson won the heats.

John Carroll Classic Win to Margeson
Alger, WA - A huge crowd at Skagit Speedway enjoyed fantastic racing and a huge fireworks extravaganza on Friday night, as Industrial Resources Incorporated presented the John Carroll Classic. As the dust settled on the race night, Evan Margeson emerged as the winner in a thrilling Budweiser 360 Sprint race with Trevor Cook, Kyler Moore and Jon Gunderson joining him in victory lane.
Margeson kept firm control of the 25 lap main event until slower traffic reared it's head. Evan had enjoyed a three plus second advantage before catching the back of the field, and unfortunately for the race leader, those cars were running the same high line that he was. As Brandon Harkness, Colton Heath and Robbie Price closed, Margeson worked to slide Steve Kilcup, seeing his lead chopped by over two seconds in the interim. Heath used the time to pass Harkness as Price followed, while closing in on Margeson as he took aim at Steve Reeves. Evan zigged as Reeves zagged, getting around him as Heath worked the bottom of the track to narrow on Margeson more with about four laps remaining. Colton drove underneath Reeves coming out of turn two and managed to show a nose to Margeson twice before crossed under the checkered flag to score the win, his first of 2017. Heath was relegated to second while Price passed Harkness for third. Heat winners were Heath and Kelsey Carpenter. Eric Fisher was the top qualifier.
Trevor Cook won his first career main event in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Trevor was engaged in a vicious battle for second place with Derek Roberts and Kelsey Carpenter when race leader Zach McCabe tangled with lapped traffic a flipped violently in turn 1 at the start of lap 11. Roberts took the lead on the restart, working the low groove in turn one and two and the high side in turn three and four. Cook measured Roberts for a couple of circuits, opting to try a high side move out of turn two to pass Derek for the lead. On lap 15, the move stuck and Cook rocketed into a lead he would not relinquish on his way to his first Skagit Speedway win. Carpenter was second with Devin Barnes taking third. Cook also set quick time. Heat winners were Carpenter, Bailey Sucich and Brett McGhie.
After flipping his modified last year, Kyler Moore was apprehensive about returning to Skagit Speedway in 2017. After his Washington Modified Tour win on Saturday night, Moore has turned that apprehension into enthusiasm after leading the final 13 laps of the main event. Lap ten spin by Tom Warner set Moore up for a restart behind race leader Tyler Walker. On lap twelve, Moore took his modified high in turn two to make the pass and streak away to his first Skagit Speedway win. Graham Cook was second with Kevin Smith taking third. Moore, Rick Smith and Scott Miller won the heat races.
Jon Gunderson won his second outlaw tuner main event of 2017, in a different car from his first win. Picking up a new tuner on Friday night, Gunderson hauled it off the trailer and into victory lane on Saturday, leading all 17 laps. Brian Michelson and Cliff Ballenger engaged in an entertaining duel for second with Michelson coming out on top. Michelson was the heat winner.

A Night Full of Repeat Winners at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA - On the first truly warm race night of the year, the action was even hotter on the track as the Budweiser 360 Sprints, Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints and High Society Modifieds put on a great show for the crowd. When the dust settled, Jason Solwold was the night's big winner, taking the win in the 360s. Kelsey Carpenter and Kevin Smith also won main events.
For the second time in 2017, Jason Solwold stood in victory lane at Skagit Speedway. Having won the Summer Thunder Sprint Series main event on ⅚, Solwold went wire to wire for his second win at the track of the year and third overall. Greg Hamilton held point for the first three turns in lap one, but the veteran Solwold hit his marks perfectly on the bottom of corner three and four, passing Hamilton at corner exit to take the top spot. Multiple restarts gave Colton Heath an opportunity to pick his way to second, and a lap seventeen restart gave the defending track champ a shot at Solwold late, but Jason held strong to take the win ahead of Colton and Robbie Price. Colin Baker was quick time with heat wins going to Price and Eric Fisher.
Kelsey Carpenter has race four times in 2017 to the tune of three feature wins after a dominant run on Saturday night in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Only missing a heat race win (he was second), Carpenter was quick time by over five tenths of a second and led every lap of the main event with ample breathing room over the course of 25 lap feature. Steve Parker was second with Derek Roberts taking third. Heat winners were Clayton Sibley, James Bundy and Adam Hinds.
Make it back to back wins for Kevin Smith. After winning the Washington Modified Tour race last Saturday, Smith took the lead from Adam Holtrop on lap eighth to win the main event over the High Society Modifieds for his second straight winning weekend at Skagit Speedway. His brother Rick ran second with Mike Knox Jr taking third. Heat winners were Kevin, Holtrop and Lawrence O'Connor.

Smith & Barnes Win Big at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA - The first appearance of The Washington Modified Tour at Skagit Speedway in 2017 paid big dividends for Kevin Smith, who came out on top of an exciting main event for his first win of the year. Devin Barnes joined him in victory lane after leading every lap of the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints main event. Clint Meins went wire to wire for the Outlaw Hornet win.
The early laps of the Washington Modified Tour feature were hard to keep track of, with the lead changing hands nearly every corner. Rick Smith and Adam Holtrop dueled early with Holtrop leading laps 1 and 2 before Smith got the lead for laps 3 and 4. Holtrop got back by Rick, as did his brother Kevin in laps 5 and 6. On lap 7, Kevin got past Holtrop, but Holtrop looked to be driving back past Smith before a caution flag came out. With the lead and open track in front of him, Smith stretched his advantage all the way into the win, his first of the year. Kyler Moore was second with Austin Kerrigan coming on strong late for third. Heat winners were Kerrigan, K Smith and Scott Miller.
Devin Barnes succeeded in grabbing the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprint Main Event win, despite heavy lapped traffic trying to throw him off in the late stages. Barnes led every lap relatively comfortably until about lap 20, when slower cars in front of him made Barnes slow his pace to find the most effective way to clear them. Second place finisher Steve Parker and third place Kelsey Carpenter took the opportunity to close up on Barnes, but a back straightaway pass of two of the slower cars on lap 23 gave Devin the space he needed to take the win. Parker was the fast qualifier. Eric Turner, Bill Rude and Clayton Sibley won heat races.
For the second time on the year, Clint Meins was the top dog in the Outlaw Tuner class, leading all 17 laps of the main event. Kevin Reuter and DJ Beaver waged and entertaining battle for second, with Reuter just nipping Beaver on the last lap by mere hundredths of a second. Meins won the first heat with Vance Hibbard winning heat number two.

Solwold Wins Second Summer Thunder Sprint Series Main
Alger, WA - Jason Solwold capped a strong evening of racing with his second win of the year over the Summer Thunder Sprint Series at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night. Joining Solwold in victory lane were Ross Rankine in the Northwest Focus Midget Series and Jon Gunderson in the Outlaw Tuners. Racing action on the night was presented by Here 2 Wire.
Solwold nearly pulled off the coveted clean sweep of the action on the first appearance of the year for the STSS. After setting quick time, Solwold raced from fourth to second in his heat, earning his spot in the redraw where he'd pick up the outside pole position. JJ Hickle led lap number one, but Solwold found moisture in the high groove through turns three and four to secure the point on lap two. The Burlington, WA driver set a rapid pace, lapping a number of cars while Hickle, Colton Heath and Eric Fisher gave chase. A lap 12 yellow for Jeff Dunlap bunched the field a bit, as there three lapped cars between the leader and Hickle. Heath took advantage of the restart by pinning Hickle behind one of those lappers to take over the runner up spot. As Solwold once again entered extremely heavy slower cars, Heath took the opportunity to close in as Fisher ascended to third. With two laps to go, Heath was as close as two car lengths back from Solwold but never closer, as Jason scored the win. Heath settled for second while Fisher held off a huge run from Greg Hamilton and Hickle in taking third. Heat winners were Steve Reeves, Austen Wheatley, Garen Linder and Heath. Reece Goetz won the Triple X Hard Charger award, going from 19th to 8th in the A Main.
Noblesville, IN driver Ross Rankine made the most of his yearly trip to the Northwest by winning the Northwest Focus Midget Series A Main at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night. Chance Crum led the first six circuits but left too much of the inside groove over for Rankine, who drove the Gaylon & Carla Stewart owned #92 into the top spot off the bottom of turn two on lap seven. Rankine then had his hands full as former series champ Tristin Thomas pressured him high and low over the final 10+ laps, before Rankine opened a little gap at the end to win by .58 seconds. Thomas settled for second in his family owned car with Shane Smith taking his best career finish with the series in third in a RPM Raceco owned entry. Heat winners were Cody Ridge, Nik Larson and Crum.
Outlaw Tuner glory went to Jon Gunderson on the night. Despite having issues with shifting on multiple restarts, Gunderson rallied his tuner to the race win, leading the first three laps before Matt Ploeg got him on a lap four restart, then racing back around Ploeg on lap eight to snag the win. Curtis Cameron made his first ever race memorable as he ran to second with Ploeg a close third. Heat winners were Ploeg and Vance Hibbard.

Season Opening Win for Price
Alger, WA - Despite Mother Nature's best attempts, Skagit Speedway's 2017 season opened with a bang on Saturday night as Cobble Hill, BC teen Robbie Price collected his first win of the year in the Budweiser 360 sprints.Outlaw Energy Drink sponsored the season opening action and joining Price in victory lane were Lawrence O'Conner, Kelsey Carpenter and Clint Meins.
After setting quick time on the night, Price rolled a six invert, setting him outside row three for the initial start. The main lineup changed before the green flag ever fell though, as initial outside row one starter Colton Heath exited with mechanical problems, shuffling Jason Solwold to the front row and Price to outside row two. Solwold took the lead on the initial start as Price moved into second and began giving chase. Solwold had nearly a straightaway lead when mechanical gremlins jumped up and bit the #18 and Price motored past into the lead. Robbie enjoyed clean air for the most of the remaining laps en route to the win, with Eric Fisher and Bud Ashe rounding out the podium. Heath and Steve Reeves won the heats.
Lawrence O'Conner ran a smart feature in defense of his 2016 track championship in the High Society Modified class. O'Conner took the lead on lap three from Adam Holtrop and voraciously defended the low groove over the final 22 laps to take the win. Kevin Smith came up to challenge O'Conner a few times but ended up settling for second with Holtrop running a strong third. Kevin Smith and his brother Rick were the heat race winners.
Kelsey Carpenter completed an elusive clean sweep in the Cook Road Shell Sportsman Sprints. Similar to Price, Carpenter benefitted from a front row starter having issues, as Julian Fuentes spun on a warm up lap. Now starting fourth, Kelsey took the Bill Rude owned machine up to second within a few laps before passing race leader Paul Burdick on the sixth circuit right before a red flag came out. On the ensuing restart, Carpenter checked out, expertly navigating slower cars on his way to grab the win. Brett McGhie was second with James Bundy taking third. Carpenter and Steve Parker were the heat race winners.
In Outlaw Tuner action, Clint Meins drive a superb race to take his first win of the year, passing Vance Hibbard on lap eight to take the eventual win. Hibbard would make a late race rally but ended up second with TJ Campbell equaling his career best result with a third place run.

Heath Wins as Skagit Speedway Readies for The Outlaws
Alger, WA – In the final tune-up before The Greatest Show on Dirt, The World of Outlaws Craftsmen Sprint Cars show up on Friday night, Colton Heath mastered a slick Skagit Speedway to score the win on yet another round of the Dwayne Lane's Family of Auto Centers Racing Series. Joining him in victory lane were Kelsey Carpenter, Nick Evans and Freddie Vela.
Running third on the program, the 360 Sprints hit the track facing extreme dry slick conditions. Evan Margeson jumped out to the early advantage and held strong for the first eight laps before Colton Heath used the inside groove to move past him in turn two on lap nine. The two time and defending track champion continued showing patience on the bottom of the track, leading the remaining laps to score the victory and extend his point lead. Margeson closed late to take second with Bud Ashe holding off Jason Solwold in an exciting battle for third. Solwold set fast time with Margeson and Robbie Price winning the heats.
The point battle is narrow in the Sportsman Sprint division, but neither of the top cars in the season standings ad anything for Kelsey Carpenter, who won his third main in a row and fourth overall after taking the lead from Derek Roberts on lap two. Roberts brought home a season best second place with Chris Ochs taking a season best third. Point leader James Bundy finished eighth but lost the point lead to Steve Parker, who through setting quick time, owns a narrow advantage heading into the finale. Adam Hinds, Chance Crum and Carpenter won the heats.
The final night of racing at Skagit Speedway for the Triple X Northwest Focus Midget Series saw Nick Evans win the final main event of the year and secure the season title. Evans ran down race leader Tristin Thomas and drove past him on the inside of turn two to take the lead on lap 21. Evans also owns the series point lead heading into the final two events at Grays Harbor Raceway. Thomas would settle for second with Eric Turner taking third. Heat winners were Jared Gundersen, Hannah Lindquist and Turner.
Freddie Vela took another win in the Outlaw Tuner class. Cliff Ballenger held the lead on lap seven but hit the wall and dropped out of the race on lap eight handing the lead to Freddie who held off point leader Brandon Berg to take the win. Jack Desrosier rounded out the podium with a career best third place finish.

Crockett Sweeps Summer Nationals at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA – Roger Crockett swept into Skagit Speedway looking for a big day, and swept away with $10,000 in his pocket after winning the main event on Saturday night for the Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals.
At the outset of the 40 lap feature, Travis Rilat took the lead from his pole position with Evan Margeson and JJ Hickle chasing. Three cautions slowed the race over the first three laps, but once consecutive laps of green flag action commenced, the action was happening so fast that it was nearly impossible to keep track of. Rilat rabbited out to a huge advantage, as Hickle passed by Margeson and set sail to run down Rilat amongst heavy traffic. The lead two used all three grooves to dice and slice in and amongst traffic, as eighth place starting Jason Solwold and eighth place starting Roger Crockett also went high, wide and low to move up into the top five. Solwold pulled a slider on Hickle in turn four around lap 23 to take second, while Rilat continued his torrid pace through the slower cars. On lap 27, Rilat shot his car too far into the cushion in turn two and tapped the wall, allowing Solwold to blow by along with Hickle, Crockett and Robbie Price. Crockett slid past Hickle a lap later, but Solwold had already stormed around multiple lapped cars while building a near straightaway lead. AS the laps ticked down, Solwold was eyeballing his fourth Summer Nationals crown, but a caution on lap 35 for Justin Youngquist bunched the field together with no lapped cars separating your leaders. On the restart, Solwold stopped Crockett's move in one in two by blocking low, but Crockett built up enough momentum to slide Jason in turn three and take the lead. With precious few laps left, the Medford, OR driver streaked away to take his second Summer Nationals win and his first since 1998 as well the $10,000 top prize. Solwold and Hickle rounded out the podium. JJ was the quickest car in qualifying. Heat winners were Jake Helsel, Henry Van Dam, Eric Fisher and Mack Brown.
The Triple X Northwest Focus Midget Series ran as the support division on Saturday night and it was Garrett Thomas putting a spanking on the field as he went wire to wire for the 25 lap main event win. Nick Evans took second and Tristin Thomas took third. Heat race winners were Evans, Thomas and Ryan Cully.

Night 1 of Summer Nationals to Crockett
Alger, WA – The hottest day of the year at Skagit Speedway produced sizzling results for Roger Crockett. The Medford, OR driver took the lead with four laps to go to win the opening night of the Bob's Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals and in the process, locked himself into a top eight start for Saturday night's $10,000 to win finale.
Colton Heath led from the outset of the main with Jason Solwold chasing. Solwold took the lead from Heath on lap three and began his march into lapped cars, as Heath and Crockett experimented with their racing lines behind him. Solwold had put three lapped cars between himself and his stalkers before disaster happened coming to complete lap 12. Three cars collected up in the middle of turn four and the leader had nowhere to go, as Jason collected into Robbie Price, Mack Brown and Bud Ashe, causing a red flag. The three other drivers would be finished for the evening, while Solwold was forced to the pits for repairs. He'd return to rally back up to eighth place. In the interim, Heath resumed the lead with Crockett hot on his heels. Heath appeared to be getting away from Crockett until a lap 13 caution for Cam Smith tightened the field again. Another restart saw Colton once again stretch and advantage on Roger, but a lap 17 yellow for Jared Ridge bunched them one final time. Crockett had been mimicking Heath's line around the track but on the restart, he changed his line to go high around the turns. This paid dividends, as Roger built a huge head of steam and crossed underneath Colton on the back straight on lap 21 to take the lead. From there, Roger returned to the high groove where he held strong and grabbed the win. Heath was second with Evan Margeson third and Jared Peterson fourth.
Crockett was fast time on the night. Heat winners were Margeson, Travis Rilat, Solwold and Peterson. Jared Ridge and Nate Vaughn won the B Mains. Of note, Solwold made it back up to eighth after his accident.
The top four finishers from the A Main have locked into the top eight redraw for tomorrow night's 40 lap, $10,000 to win. The remaining competitors will run a full format with qualifying, heats, and b mains. The top four qualifiers who transfer through their heats will join the top four from Friday night in the redraw. Joining the show for Saturday night will be the ever popular Triple X Northwest Focus Midget Series.

Peterson Prevails in Front of Gigantic Skagit Speedway Crowd
Alger, WA - In front of one of the largest crowds Skagit Speedway has seen, Jared Peterson found all the speed he needed to win the Sportsman Sprint feature in thrilling fashion. With a huge crowd on hand to witness Mid-Season Championship Night presented by Les Schwab, as well as the fireworks display that followed, Peterson visited victory lane and was joined by Jason Solwold, Lawrence O'Connor and Ryan Ellis.
Steve Parker looked to have the Sportsman Sprint main event well in hand, as with nine laps remaining, the former track camp enjoyed a near full straightaway lead over Jared Peterson, who'd advanced from seventh to second place but appeared to be running out of time. With no lapped cars in between, Peterson caught the break he needed as Clayton Sibley and Victoria Cantu got together at the back of the field, causing a caution and erasing Parker's advantage. On the subsequent restart, Peterson used every line he could find until finding enough forward bite out of turn four to scoot underneath Parker at lap 23 to take the lead and secure the eventual win. Parker would settle for second with Roger Oudman taking third. Parker won the scramble, with Peterson qualifying fastest of the nine cars who were not locked into the eight scramble positions.
Jason Solwold made things look easy in the 360 class, leading all 25 laps of the main to grab the win. Solwold advanced from fourth to second in the scramble, then used the high groove to take the initial lead and never looked back, going wire to wire for the win. Colton Heath was second with Justin Youngquist running third. Heath won the scramble and Greg Hamilton was fastest amongst the time in cars.
A good scramble also set the table for Lawrence O'Connor in the High Society Modifieds. O'Connor advanced from third to win the scramble, giving him the pole for the main event. The Port Hardy, C native took full advantage of his pole position start, leading all 25 laps of the main to grab the win. Tyler Ketchum finished a career best second with Louis Nutter Sr running third.
The crowd roared with excitement toward the tail end of the Outlaw Tuner main event, as you could throw a blanket over the four drivers dueling for the lead in the late race. With a lap 15 restart, race long leader Brandon Berg lost the lead to Cliff Ballenger for two laps before getting it back on lap 18. As the cars came to the line for lap 19, Ryan Ellis got by Berg with Freddie Vela right on his heels before spun cars at the back of the field reset the lineup for a green-white-checkered finish. On the restart, both Berg and Vela gave Ellis everything they had, but the Edmonton based driver came out on top of his first Skagit Speedway appearance, with Vela and Berg filling out the podium. Brandon won the scramble.

Starks Wins John Carroll Classic at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA – Trey Starks is officially tuned up for the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup in two weeks at Skagit Speedway. The Puyallup, WA driver led the final 19 laps of action in the 360 at Skagit Speedway on Saturday night to collect the John Carroll Classic Win presented by Industrial Resources Inc. on Janicki Industries night at the races.
Evan Margeson set the early pace on the John Carroll Classic main event, with Starks looming roughly five cars back as Margeson closed on slower traffic. Right before Evan began putting cars down a lap, Starks found a fast line around the top of turns three and four and used it to rocket into the lead. Margeson kept Starks close with a rapidly advancing Colton Heath also making good laps and shrinking the gap. Starks would endure multiple restarts and intensely heavy traffic while turning away Margeson and Heath among the slower cars to score the win, his second in a row after a triumph last week at Grays Harbor Raceway. Heath passed Margeson for second just past halfway in the main, but would settle for second place with Evan holding off Jason Solwold for third. Three thrilling heat races were won by Starks, Margeson and Cam Smith. Travis Jacobson was the quick qualifier among the 22 cars.
Devin Barnes made it two wins in a row at Skagit Speedway in the Sportsman Sprint division, with a little help from some good friends. Barnes, who triumphed last week, blew up his engine on the final lap and was looking at sitting out the rest of the year before Black Market Speed stepped up with a bullet for him to compete with. Devin took full advantage, leading all 25 laps to win is second straight feature. James Bundy rallied forward for a second place finish with Derek Roberts coming home third. Steve Parker set quick time. Parker and Zach McCabe won the heats.
Cliff Ballenger won the Outlaw Tuner portion of the John Carroll Classic, taking over the lead on lap five and rolling away to an easy victory, never being challenged over the final 12 laps to win his first feature of the year. He was joined on the podium by Jon Gunderson and Eric Thibert. Two heats for the tuners were won by Ballenger and Steve Bergman.

Bundy Beats Mother Nature for Emotional Win at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA – Mother Nature and 19 other Sportsman Sprint cars tried to interrupt the Bundy family birthday celebration on Saturday night, but none could deny James Bundy a trip to victory lane on Saturday night at Skagit Speedway. The 25 year old Marysville, WA driver parker the Bullet Racing #57 in victory lane on his Grandpa / Car Owner Jerry Bundy's 70th birthday to score an emotional win on a night delayed by a 20 minute rain shower.
Despite Mother Nature acting as a second water truck on the night, the track was wide but slick through the middle for the 25 lap Sportsman Sprint feature. Greg Otis took the point and held serve for the first 12 laps before Bundy found traction underneath him in turn two of lap 13 to take the lead. James weaved through slower cars for four laps until a yellow flag on lap 17 for Bert Johnson Jr stacked the field up behind him. James was great on the restart, as well the restart on lap 20 after Dan Lauden slowed and a restart on lap 24 too as he took the checkered flag and the win, dedicating it to Grandpa Jerry, who sold his Harley this offseason to fund a new engine for James' car. Zach McCabe was second and Steve Parker was third. Bill Rude set quick time, with McCabe, Otis and Joe Lyon winning heats.
Graham Cook picked up an improbable win in the High Society Modifieds. Chris Beaulieu picked up the lead on lap five after a Delaware style restart played out perfectly in front of him, allowing him to rocket from fifth to first in one lap. Chris was checked out on the field with a near half-track lead, but in the final corner of the final lap, spun to a stop in turn four. At the same time, Cook had just passed Rick Smith for second, and as the field gathered for a green – white – checkered restart. Lawrence O'Conner gave Graham a challenge on the restart, but Cook held strong to take his first Skagit Speedway win, followed by O'Conner and Tyler Ketchum. O'Conner and Beaulieu won the heats.
Travis Meins became the third different winner in three nights of Outlaw Tuner racing on the season, dominating the main event, leading all but the first lap en route to the win. Brian Michelson was second with Clint Meins winning a spirited battle for third. Travis was also a heat winner along with Jon Gunderson.

House of Horrors No More: Van Dam Wins at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA – Henry Van Dam has experienced nothing but bad luck over the years at Skagit Speedway. Whether it was "one of them racing deals" or random mechanical failure, the 62 year old 3/10 mile clay oval is a place where the Enumclaw WA based driver has never had much success. On Saturday night, Van Dam finally conquered his personal House of Horrors by going wire to wire at Skagit Speedway over the Summer Thunder Sprintcar Series for a $2,000 win.
The most dry slick surface Skagit Speedway has seen in years provided great racing and plenty of excitement as Van Dam sat outside row one with Steve Parker following the top eight redraw. Henry made use of his starting spot, driving into the early lead on the high side of the track. With room on the bottom to pass slower traffic, Henry began weaving in, our, around and through the slower cars when a caution flew on lap 10 for Luke Didiuk, Reece Goetz and Jake Helsel. On the restart, Jason Solwold put a slider on Eric Fisher out of turn four to take second spot and began his attempts at catching Henry. Lap 15 saw a red for a flipping Michael Bollinger, which would lead to an open red as cleanup crews went to work. Van Dam was just as strong after the open red, stretching his advantage again until a red with seven laps left after third place running Fisher and Colton Heath made contact, resulting in Fisher upside down. On the subsequent restart, Van Dam again escaped from Solwold and kept enough distance between the two to take the $2,000 top prize. Solwold closed to within three car lengths at the final flag but settled for second after starting eighth with Heath coming home third. Skylar Gee, Lance Sargent, Cam Smith and Tayler Malsam were heat winners. Solwold set quick time. Steve Reeves won the B Main.
The Triple X Northwest Focus Midget Series brought 28 cars to Skagit Speedway and the drivers put on a thrilling show for the fans with great racing in both the front, middle and back of the pack. 21 cars started the A Main and when it was all said and done, defending Skagit Speedway and Northwest Focus Midget Series Champion Tristin Thomas took home the win after passing Chance Crum for the lead on lap five. Thomas was all by himself like the chess club president on prom night at the front of the field, while racing behind him was fast and furious. Nick Evans, Eric Turner and Garrett Thomas clashed for the runner up spot, With Evans finally taking it for good while Turner took third after advancing nine positions on the field. The B Feature had the crowd on their feet as well, with Shane Biles making a late race pass of Al Goldie to get the win and Michael Hodel coming from nearly dead last to get Goldie for second. Heat race winners were Michael Millard, Ryan Cully, Tristin Thomas and Garrett Thomas.
It was a family affair in the Outlaw Tuner A Main with Clint Meins leading father Travis Meins around at high speeds. Clint took the lead on lap two from Vance Hibbard with Travis finding his way past shortly thereafter. Travis trailed Clint by just a car length but could never find the combo to get around his son, as Clint scored his second career tuner win. Brandon Berg joined the podium by placing third. Heat winners were Clint Meins and Cliff Ballenger.

Heath Caps Fantastic Opening Night with Win
Alger, WA – Colton Heat capped a fantastic night of racing at Skagit Speedway with a win in the 360 division to win the opening race of the 2016 season. Thrilling racing occurred in all four classes, with Logan Forler winning the Sportsman Sprints, Kevin Smith beating his brother Rick for a win in the High Society Modifieds and Brian Michelson achieving a seven year dream by winning the Outlaw Tuners.
A slick and wide surface awaited the 360 Sprints for their 25 lap feature and on the initial start, Eric Fisher beat Heath out of turn two to take the lead. A yellow for a spinning Greg Hamilton brought the field to a complete restart, and this time Heath would beat Fisher out of turn two to grab the point. Colton executed his game plan of racing in clean air in the high groove while using the bottom to slide past slower traffic, as the race behind him for second intensified, as Travis Jacobson and Jason Solwold diced in and out of traffic in pursuit of second. Both drivers eventually passed Eric who encountered mechanical trouble and dropped from the contest. A lap 17 yellow for a slowing Michael Bollinger bunched the field together for one last restart, but Colton would get away from Travis before a little traffic hindered him at the end and allowed Jacobson to close within five or so car lengths. Heath would pick the correct lines consistently and parked his car in victory lane for the win with Jacobson and Solwold taking second and third. Heat race winners were Jacobson and Bollinger. Time trials on the evening were cancelled due to scoring loop malfunction, so all cars lined up via pill draw for heats.
The thrills continued in the Sportsman Sprint main event, as Bill Rude worked to fend off ASCS star Logan Forler who came to town running Doug Rutz' potent ride. Forler was all over Rude, but the former track champ was up to the challenge until lap 11 when he spun by himself in turn two, handing the lead to Logan. The race was marred by stoppages after that, as the race halted four more times before track officials deemed a lap 24 green white checkered restart would be the last restart of the race. Forler would bring the field back to green slowly, and the field stacked up behind him with the result being a red flag that ended the race one lap early and gave Logan the victory. Greg Otis capped a strong night with second and Steve Parker ended up third. Otis, Roger Oudman and Derek Roberts won the heat.
The Smith Brothers brought their sibling rivalry to the High Society Modified division for a 25 lap main and as the dust settled, it was Kevin coming out on top of Rick. Rick held point for the first five laps until losing the handle on the outside of turn four, allowing Kevin to take the lead. Kevin held the lead for the next twelve laps while Rick drifted back as far as fifth before finding a good line around the outside of the speedway and working back up to third. Following a Carl Franssen spin on lap 18, the field bunched up for a Delaware style restart where Rick would blast around the outside of Mel Decker and brother Kevin to take the lead. Kevin rallied back down low and would go side by side with Rick until lap 22 when he slid past him to retake the top spot. Rick returned the favor back to Kevin by again putting his right rear on the cushion and claiming the lead on lap 23. Kevin (who mentioned in victory lane that he'd lost braked around lap 15) then barreled deep into the first turn on the 24th lap and took his brothers line away by washing up high, securing the lead for the final time coming to the white flag. In the end, the large Skagit Speedway crowd cheered both brothers as they came to a 1-2 finish, followed by Decker in third. Kevin and Lawrence O'Conner won the heats.
Brian Michelson has been racing an Outlaw Tuner at Skagit Speedway full time since 2009 and on opening night of 2016, picked up his first career win by leading all 17 laps of the feature. Eric Thibert ran second with Brandon Berg taking third. Berg and Clint Meins won the heats, with Meins challenging Michelson in the main event until encountering mechanical gremlins.

Wet Weather Can’t Stop Lemley at 43rd Annual Jim Raper Memorial at Skagit Speedway
Alger, WA – One of the most decorated drivers in the Pacific Northwest captured the crown jewel of Skagit Speedway after six words spoken on the public address system Saturday night: “Brock Lemley has won Dirt Cup.”
Bad weather forced an initial postponement of the Friday night preliminary event to Saturday morning. When Speedway officials arrived at the track early in the AM, it was evident that the continued wet weather through the overnight would make running a day race impossible, as track crews and push trucks would work all through the morning and afternoon to prep the track for the Saturday night finale’. Lineups for the evening would be based on Thursday night’s points, which put Lemley and Jason Solwold on the front row for the A Scramble, which would determine the starting order for the first three rows on the A Main. On the start of the scramble, four time and defending Dirt Cup Champion Jonathan Allard made a bold move to split traffic going into turn one and emerged with the lead from his outside row two starting position. Solwold maintained the second spot as Lemley drifted back to 4th, fighting with a broken visor on his helmet as he struggled to harness his racecar.
At the drop of the green flag on the A Main, Allard would set out to a half straight away advantage over Solwold, Kyle Hirst and Lemley as the field began to stretch out. Allard had nearly caught traffic by lap five when the first caution fell for Barry Martinez who had stopped in turn one. Lemley took full advantage of the restart, working the high groove of the racetrack and clearing both Hirst and Solwold as they came through turns three and four on lap seven. A quick caution after the pass for Logan Forler placed Lemley right on Allard’s rear nerf for another restart. Jonathan would get back out to a four car length lead as the pair rapidly raced toward the back of the field. It looked like Lemley would take the lead on lap 14, as Allard, racing hard amongst the cars he was attempting to lap, made contact with Matt Jensen, prompting a caution flag from head flagman Kirby Hoyle. Allard did not stop on the track during the incident, nor did Jensen, and per speedway rules, both were awarded their positions back. The field would restart but quickly go to yellow again as Solwold slowed with a nosewing coming off. When they got back to speed, it was Allard again leading Lemley, Hirst, Rico Abreu and Willie Croft. Abreu would pass Hirst on the restart, though the race would only stay green until lap 18 when Daniel Anderson had a tire go down on the back stretch. Croft would slip past Hirst on the next restart as Lemley again challenged Allard. It was another short stretch, as on lap 20, Eric Fisher and Marc Duperron made contact resulting in Fisher flipping in turn three. Speedway officials called for an open red flag and as teams rolled out to their cars, fans began noticing the right rear tire on Allard’s car was losing air. Allard’s crew was faced with switching the tire and getting sent to the back of the pack, or trying to re-inflate the existing tire and risking it, as a light sprinkle had started up around the facility. Allard opted to leave the low tire on, and with the track still in good shape, the race resumed. On the restart, Lemley blew past Allard to take the lead, and Abreu and Croft followed suit. Allard slowed to a stop on the track with the tire unable to support the car. During the caution, the rains continued to pelt the track. Lemley would restart on lap 21 and the teams tippy-toed around for a couple laps before the red flag was thrown, halting the race at lap 24 with Lemley leading Abreu and Croft.
Speedway officials consulted the doppler and noted track conditions, and after about 20 minutes, the decision was made to throw the checkered flag on the 2014 Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by Jack in the Box, crowning Lemley the Champion. “Those were the longest 20 minutes of my life” said Brock in victory lane. “I was sitting in the car in turn one, not knowing what was going on, just freaking out in the car…then we heard the speakers and it was just a dream come true.” Lemley, from Bellingham, WA, joined Kasey Kahne, Jayme Barnes and Bobby Burrow as the only Washington natives in the modern era to win the Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup. The win was also the first for Bob & Lori Scott, who have been fielding a dirt cup entry yearly since 2005.The winner’s check totaled $20,000 for the car owners from Alger, WA. Abreu raced his way from seventh to second. Croft would bring home his car in third.
In action from earlier in the night, Kevin Smith won the B Scramble. Daniel Anderson made a lap 19 pass on Smith to win the B Feature. Notable from the A Main, 16 year Robbie Price of Cobble Hill, BC qualified for the A Main, started 11th and ended up 6th in his first Dirt Cup with a 360ci engine against the field of 410s. Eric Fisher of Burlington, WA also made the show in the Michael Harris owned 360 sprint.
The NW USAC HPD Midgets and Street Stocks joined the card as support classes on Saturday night. Lance Sargent scored his first career win in the Midget class, leading the last 4 laps of the 20 lap main event en route to his first victory as well as the first for car owners Renee Angel and Shane Biles. Garrett Thomas was second and Mike Vollbrecht was third. Heat race wins went to Sargent and Chase Goetz. In the street stock main, Austin Kerrigan ran down Brian Izzy and passed him on lap 16 to take his first street stock win at Skagit Speedway. Shane Kerrigan scooted by Izzy late to grab second.
