D. SMITH DUSTS BOSS’ FIELD; KITCHEN CLINCHES RENEGADES OF DIRT CROWN; MALCUIT, R. SMITH & LUCAS 1st TIME WINNERS AT NAPA AUTO PARTS WAYNE COUNTY SPEEDWAY Orrville, Ohio Saturday, October 6, 2012 By Mike Swanger The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series rolled into NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway on Gross Lumber night for the second time this season with Russiaville IN’s Dustin Smith leading the points race and when the night was over, he had expanded his lead with the win. Chuck Wilson and Brandon Spithaler started on the front row of the 25 lap event and Spithaler would set the pace for the first lap before Mark Cassella flipped to bring out the red flag. Spithaler would continue to lead until lap 6 when Wilson would take over for the next 7 circuits. Sixth starting Smith moved into third on lap two with Tony Beaber and Mike Brecht in the top five. Smith and his Lee’s Hydraulics #37 would slide into the top spot on lap 14 as Wilson and Spithaler dueled for second. The red flag flew at that point for Adam Cruea as he tumbled in turn three. As the laps wound down, Spithaler and Wilson rubbed together that allowed Dallas Hewitt and Beaber to edge past them. Spithaler gathered himself back together to hold fourth as Brecht edged past Wilson for fifth. Hewitt tried to chase down Smith in the last two laps but came up short as Smith won for the second year in a row in the fall race at WCS. Jack Sodeman Jr. won the last chance race as Kirk Jeffries, Aaron Middaugh, Beaber and Brecht topped the heats. The Renegades of Dirt Modified series wrapped up their season and when the night started for them, Columbus’ Bobby Kitchens and Bart Hartman would be separated by just a few points and it started out well for Hartman as he would set fast time but mechanical woes forced him out of his heat race and he would have to use a provisional to start 20th in the feature while Kitchens would start second. The 2 Brothers Motorsports #13 of Kitchens would beat Rich Michaels into turn one and never look back. A lap 10 caution for Chris Basich bunched the field back up and on the restart, 6th running Travis Dickson’s rear axle broke and before anyone could get slowed down, seven cars piled up just past the flagstand. Dickson ended up on his top as Jesse Hartman, Kevin Morehouse, Deana Groves, Bud Watson, Robin Duston and Sid Danals all were involved as Danals was able to continue. When racing resumed, Kitchens jumped back out to a ten car length lead as Michaels was being hounded by Joel Watson for second with Watson taking second with five laps to go. Hartman was now in fourth after powering past DJ Cline and Mark Dickson. As the checkered waved Kitchens clinched his second win at WCS and became the first winner of the Renegades of Dirt series as Watson, Michaels, Hartman and Cline followed. Mike Kinney scored the last chance win as Kitchens, Watson, Michaels and Ryan West paced the heats. It was double vision at the start of the Lias Tire late model feature as Strasburg’s Brad Malcuit and Ryan Markham, who was driving Malcuit’s second car, was on the front row and those two would go back and forth with the lead for the 1st six laps but Markham’s car started puffing some smoke on lap six and he would drop out three laps later. Corey Conley and Shane McLoughlin moved into second and third until McLoughlin came to a stop in turn two on lap 18. Up until then, Steve White, Weston Hutchinson, Wayne Maffett Jr. and JR Gentry had a four way rumble going for fourth. After McLoughlin’s caution, Malcuit led the field back to the green flag and before another lap got recorded, White went off the backstretch to bring out the caution again. Racing resumed with Malcuit and his Malcuit’s Tavern #79 pulled away from fast qualifier Conley for his first win of the season, while the last five laps saw Gentry taking over third with Hutchinson beating out Maffett Jr. for fourth. Conley, McLoughlin and Markham won the heats. It looked like it was going to be a flag to flag win for Bob Daugherty in the Thrifty Discount Muffler Pure Stock feature but as he went into turn three with two laps to go, his car came to a stop, putting Chillcothe’s Bob Smith into the lead. Smith and his Cline Energy #17 led the field into turn three again only to have Justin Patterson make contact with him as Eric Eicholtz and Shaun Cains getting involved. Smith and Cains would continue on as Patterson and Eicholtz were finished. Cains made a last lap run on Smith, who was making his first visit ever to WCS, but could not catch Smith as Paul Holmes, Paul Whitten and Chris Albright filled out the top five. Smith and Patterson notched the heat wins. Lucas’ Jeremy Lucas started third in the Mini Stock main but at the end of lap one was the leader and then held off heat winner Roger Rush to collect his first win of the season. Doug Hensel finished third with Kenny Long, Lester Berry and William Huntington rounding out the field. The Freedom Fighters 40 for the Lias Tire Late Models takes place next Saturday at NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway with the 410 Sprints, Modifieds, Pure Stocks, Mini Stocks and the Mini Wedges also on the racing card as racing will start at 6 pm.

Wayne County Speedway General Managers: Jason and Kristin Flory General Manager Phone: 330-465-2365 Track Office Address: 106 Carol Drive Creston, Ohio 44217 Track Phone: 330-465-2365 Track email: kristinu2@yahoo.com PR Director: Ryan Pearson- dpd653@gmail.com Track Address: 1083 North Carr Road, Orrville, Ohio 44667 www.waynecountyspeedway.com September 2, 2012 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Holtgraver wins UNOH ALL Star Circuit of Champions Sprints; Lee and Holmes also victorious at NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway By Ryan Pearson Orrville, Ohio (September 2, 2012) Mother nature was a race fan as NAPA Auto Parts WCS officials opened the race track for another night of fierce racing action and door handle to door handle action. Tonight’s races were sponsored by VP racing fuel. In the UNOH ALL Star Circuit of Champions Sprint division Wooster Ohio Dean Jacobs jumped to the early lead just ahead of David Gravel, Byron Reed and Tim Shaffer. On lap two Jacobs hit slick spot on race track and drove into the pit area nearly full speed and handed the lead over to Reed. The eyes were on the young guns as Sheldon Haudenschild had moved into the fourth position and was applying pressure to Gravel for third. By lap ten sixteenth starting Danny Holtgraver had moved into the top five and was looking to slip past Haudenschild for fourth. Up front Reed still led and he was chased by Shaffer and Gravel. All eyes were on the D4 machine of Holtrgraver as he made short work of both Gravel and Shaffer and just needed to catch the leader Reed. Quickly the ten car length lead Reed had evaporated as Holtgraver closed on the leader. As the race end neared Holtgraver worked the inside of Reed but to no avail. On lap twenty five Holtgraver seized the opportunity as he slipped past Reed on the high side to wrestle the lead from Reed. At the drop of the checkered it was Holtgraver coming home the winner followed by Reed, Gravel, Stevie Smith, Shaffer and Rob Chaney. Jack Sodeman Jr, Danny Smith and Caleb Helms won heat races. Jacobs won the dash, Shaffer set quick time and Holtgraver was hard charger gaining fifthteen positions in the feature. In the Lias Tire Super Late Model division George Lee powered to the early lead just ahead of Charlie Duncan, Ryan Markham and Devin Moran. With Lee out front Duncan looked high and looked low for a way around the leader but was unable to make a pass. On lap nine Lee was still out front but Keith Berner had entered the mix of the top five. Lee began stretching his lead as a three way battle for second ensued with Duncan, Moran and Berner all very close on the race track. On lap sixteen the caution flew for Justin Collet who spun in turn four. Under caution Ryan Markham retired for the night ending a solid run in the top ten with mechanical issues and Shane McLoughlin went pit side to change a tire. On lap nineteen Moran began applying heavy pressure to Duncan for second place, Duncan held the position but Moran wasn’t giving up. Lee again stretched his lead but Moran trying to push his car harder and harder jumped the cushion in turn one which resulted in Berner slipping by for third. At the start finish line it was Lee followed by Duncan, Berner, Moran and Brad Malcuit. Moran, Berner and Lee won heat races. In the Thrifty Discount Muffler Pure Stocks Justin Patterson and Rich Frame led the field to the green flag. On the initial start several cars got together which resulted in Eric Eicholtz spinning on the back stretch. They lined them up and tried again this time had nearly same results just Bob Daugherty spun into the infield and stuck a uke tire. Rich Frame suffered flat tire, went pit side and returned to the tail of the feature. At the drop of the green flag for the third time Ryan Wisecarver jumped to the lead. He was chased by Paul Holmes, Justin Patterson, Brandon Morrow and Jesse Wisecarver. The caution flew and erased the lead Ryan Wisecarver had on the field. On the restart Holmes dipped under Ryan Wisecarvere as they entered turn one and his pass stuck as the raced off turn two and down the back straightaway. Holmes never looked back as he took home the win ahead of Ryan Wisecarver, Morrow, Patterson and Chase Alexander. Daughtery and Ryan Wisecarver won heat races.

By Ryan Pearson

Orrville, Ohio (August 28, 2012) NAPA Auto Parts WCS officials welcome back the UNOH ALL Star Circuit of Champions Sprint division to the Orrville, Ohio race track on Sunday September 2nd. “We are really excited to have back the ALL STARS here at NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway. These guys put on a well run show and it’s great for us and our fans” stated General Manager Jason Flory. “Our Speedweek show was a success and we are expecting big things again” Flory continued.

Gates open Sunday at 3:00 PM, qualifying at 5:45 PM and racing at 7:00 PM. Also racing are Lias Tire Super Late Models and Thrifty Discount Muffler Pure Stocks. General admission is $20.00, pit admission is $35.00 and as always kids general admission is free. Primitive camping is available we just ask larger campers or motor homes park on edge of property. The night’s action is sponsored by VP Racing Fuel. Rain date is set for Monday, September 3rd.

Three time UNOH All Star champion Dale Blaney currently leads three time series champion Tim Shaffer by just 73 points in the Ohio Region. Shaffer looks to become only the third driver in the history of the UNOH All Stars to win his fourth straight national title. Blaney had eight series wins in 2012 to run his career total to 92, just six away from tying hall-of-famer Kenny Jacobs atop the all-time win list. Shaffer has five series wins in 2012 and now has 50 for his career.

The UNOH All Stars will wrap up the weekend with their second appearance of the season at the NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway on Sunday, Sept. 2. The track was instrumental in the creation of the All Stars back in the early 1970s. When the UNOH All Stars competed at Wayne County during the Ohio Sprint Speedweek, “Young Money” Kyle Larson scored the win in his first ever appearance at the track.

The NAPA Auto Parts Wayne County Speedway returned to weekly sprint car racing in 2012 and has seen fantastic racing. Again, the UNOH All Star competitors will have to battle the tough “regulars” like track champion Andrew Palker, Cole Duncan, Rob Chaney, Danny Mumaw, Chris Myers and a host of others.
