    Weekend Outlook 6/29-7/3

    Weekend Highlights

    -June 30th marks the inaugural Dean Knittle Memorial paying $10,054 to win for the 410 sprints (unsanctioned) and a total purse of $31,554. The event looks to be one of the biggest non-sanctioned events in the state this year and one I REALLY wanted to be able to attend. Not only is the purse fantastic for the 410 sprints, the 305 sprints will be paying $2554 to win and $100 to start. The 305's are open class but hardcarded racesavers can get bonus money from the OTSCS. If you're in southern Ohio this is an event that should be given support as the payout is fantastic and you can expect the best 410 count in Ohio this weekend at this race.

    -Lucas Oil's annual July 4th weekend swing through Ohio brings many of the best Late Model drivers in the country through the state. Drivers like Bobby Pierce, Kyle Bronson, Mason Ziegler, Scott Bloomquist and many others come in to take on the local Ohio talent at Four very different venues with 4 different crops of local drivers. The weekend kicks off at Portsmouth Raceway Park with a stout field of southern Ohio's finest late model drivers such as the Conley's, Casebolt, Carpenter's and many more battling it out with the invaders for the $12k to win event. The second race takes place Sunday July 1st as the Lucas Oil Late Models visit Mansfield Motor Speedway for their first circle track event since the SCWC in April. The surface is much improved at the 4/10ths mile oval and I'd expect a good crop of locals such as Doug Drown, Ryan Markham, JR Gentry among others to take on the Lucas Oil regulars at Mansfield. A $5k to win Modified race accompanies Sunday's program and can expect a very solid count as well for the high paying support race. Sharon Speedway marks the third event on the Lucas Oil's swing through the buckeye state, and with the surface back in order the racing should feature some great door to door action all night. I'm not too certain on what local or regional competitor's may show at Sharon, but some of the more serious local competitor's may make the trek out for the event. The racing wraps up at the Moran owned Muskingum County Speedway and has a stout field of Central ohio drivers and close enough to both Atomic and Wayne Co to pull in locals from those tracks as well.

    -Waynesfield is hosting their Summer sprint sizzler with the FAST 410s, NRA 360s, FAST 305s, and Mini Sprints all on the card at the small 1/3 mile dirt oval. This event is always one of the most well attended sprint car events and you can expect a MASSIVE car count for all divisions here. The event shapes up to be one of the finest on an action packed weekend and with many people having the 4th off the seating will fill up quickly so make sure to get there early!

    -Raceway 7 in the very northeast tip of Ohio in Conneaut will be hosting a Big Block Modified touring event at their facility, one of the few times in a season that their headliner is something other than a Crate Late Model division. I've never been to the track but the event is one of the big shows at the facility so if you're in the area and you like Big Blocks this would certainly be a good event to check a track off the list.

    -Fremont Speedway is hosting an all sprint car event this weekend featuring the FAST 410s, NRA 360s, and FAST305s. A sprint car lover's dream returns to the track that action built. I'd expect around 70-80 cars between the three divisions and are certain to put on a whale of a show. After seeing the 360's run at Waynesfield I know I'd definitely like to see the NRA at Fremont too. They put on a good show and have some talented drivers in their own right. Another highlight of this event is to see if someone can FINALLY knock Craig Mintz out of the winner's circle at Fremont.

    -Sharon Speedway welcomes back the 410 sprints with another of the super series events. The last all stars show had the best track prep there since they got the new clay last year from what I've read and heard so it sounds like the racing is getting better there each week. RUSH Mods and Econo-Mods are also on the card.

    - Attica returns to racing this week with a discounted General Admission price of only $10. On the card is the FAST 410 sprints, Attica/Oakshade late model challenge series, and the FAST 305 sprints. The night is also Dollar Dog night and 50 cent popcorn. With no other 410 races Friday in Ohio a good car count can be expected as always.


    My weekend Plans
    I got stuck working on thirds from Sunday through Saturday this week all on thirds until our third shift tech finishes training. My holiday rotation this year is July 4th and Christmas and my holiday rotations are on thirds (so the day prior July 3rd and Christmas Eve night) so I won't be able to attend the Summer Sprint Sizzler as I was hoping I'd be able too. Once I'm off of work July 1st I'm heading home to spend time with family and will be going to Mansfield to watch the Lucas Oil show and am extremely excited to see what type of show they can put on now that the surface has really came in. I would've loved to have been able to see the Dean Knittle memorial as well but such is life. I work next weekend too since I traded a coworker but then two weekends off to go get my racing fix!

    Driving talent wise he's as good as Drown, Markham, Gentry, Irey, McLaughlin, or Conley. I wasn't surprised at all. Earlier this year at Attica he was the fastest car there and got caught up in someone else's wreck racing while running in the top 3.

He has won races at 3 different tracks this yearning his late model. As for the mods it doesn't matter who shows up if Strickler is there he's going to be tough to beat.
    I’ve seen him race. He dominated stocks and has always been in the good group when I’ve seen him in a late model. Just surprised he made it over some other locals.

    Tires biggest reason locals didn't go. As for mods, they had big show in West Virginia fri-sat and that's why you seen stremme, strickler etc show up.

    Yes he was not who I thought would make it.

    I think the being run on Sunday night kept cars away in both divisions.

    One of the guys who ran was in to running with the big guys.

    Out of the locals to make it he wasn’t my first pick. He’s good and has some wins but still.

    I was just explaining why a few of the guys don’t go. I’m sure there are some to that probably had to work Monday morning too.

This car has big connections seeing the pr out on it. Been to races that are the typical local type mods and then you have unlimited money car like Strickler show up and just doesnt seem like a race. Just seen several shows like that where they did a big $ show and he pops up. Nothing against him just hate seeing the regular series guys lose out the big $ shows.
    I mentioned to friends there was your winner and they were like how. Well he already outspent them for the best.
    They did a good job getting thru the feature without too many cautions.
    My experience has been with mods that 15 minutes and one lap in type racing. So they got points for running the feature as quickly as it went.
    But Ill not come back for their 2 day race as they are stand alone. Guess Im not down south enough to get into mods where they seem to have a huge following.
    Lucas Oil had a good turnout of names. Surprised not more locals. Seemed all the locals came out of WCS to support the race.
    More locals weren't there because our perennial top dogs didn't even make the feature... If you can't beat Drown or Markham at a local show you'd be hard pressed to go run a lucas oil event unless you're doing it for fun.

    A healthy count.
