Kyle Reinhardt Shows Speed Early at Eldora

The season may be entering its final chapter, but there’s no quit in Kyle Reinhardt or the Capitol Renegade team.

 

With approximately a dozen races remaining in their 2022 season and only three with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC), they are still plugging away to find the speed and consistency they know they are capable of.

 

It has been a tough season for Reinhardt, who has been serving as his own crew chief all year but getting over the hump and putting some good results on the books before season’s end would go a long way toward 2023.

 

September 23:  BeFour the Crowns Showdown / Eldora Speedway / New Weston, OH [42 cars, Qualifying 8th in Flight A, Heat 4th (4), A-main 22nd (14)]

 

The ASCoC was slated to tackle the famed Eldora Speedway on Saturday, so Reinhardt and team made the tow to western Ohio a day early to join the World of Outlaws for the ‘BeFour the Crowns Showdown’ show on Friday.

 

The 42 cars on hand were split into two flights for qualifying.  Reinhardt registered the 8th quickest lap in Flight A, placing him 4th on the starting grid for heat number two.

 

The top five finishers from each of four 8-lap heats would transfer directly to the $10,000 to win A-main.  Reinhardt ‘held serve’ and recorded a 4th place finish to put his team in the show.

 

The night was generally going well for Reinhardt, until the 30-lap main event took the green flag.  The Neptune City, NJ native started 14th with his eyes on a top ten finish but it didn’t play out that way.

 

Reinhardt began to lose positions early on, dropping outside the top twenty within the first five laps.  Just past the halfway point, with nothing positive coming from his efforts to regroup and move forward, he retired from the event for an official 22nd place finish.

 

September 24:  4-Crown Nationals / Eldora Speedway / New Weston, OH [34 cars, Qualifying 1st in Group B, Heat 2nd (4), Dash 7th (6), A-main 17th (7)]

 

Saturday’s All Star Circuit of Champions portion of the 4-Crown Nationals event at Eldora brought 34 winged 410 sprint cars to compete for a $10,000 top prize.

 

Reinhardt kicked off the night by going to the top of the qualifying charts in Group B, notching quick time with a lap of 13.166 in his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91.

 

Given his quick time in the group, all Reinhardt needed to do to claim his spot in the Dash redraw was finish in the top five in his heat race.  He wasn’t complacent though, charging from his 4th starting spot to 2nd on the opening lap and then going after the top spot.  He was unable to run down leader Brady Bacon in the fast-paced 8-lap qualifier and came home with the runner up finish.

 

Reinhardt drew the 6th starting spot in the 8-car Dash, which would set the starting order for the first 4 rows of the night’s finale.  Sye Lynch wrestled 6th away from Reinhardt on lap three, dropping Reinhardt to a 7th place finish in the 6-lap race.

 

Reinhardt took the green for the 30-lap A-main from inside row four but could not mount a forward charge in the opening laps.  He slipped just outside of the top ten a few laps into the event and remained there through the halfway point of the race.  

 

The restart that followed a caution with nine laps to go was not Reinhardt’s friend.  Over the course of the final nine laps, Reinhardt’s situation only got worse, losing a few more spots to a 17th place finish.

 

We made some progress this weekend.  We had really good speed early both nights.  We qualified well and made the show through our heat, but we struggled again late and didn’t close the deal.“, Reinhardt commented.

 

Up Next

 

The 60th Annual National Open at Williams Grove Speedway is next on the docket for Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team.  The two day marquee event takes place Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1.  Saturday’s A-main purse alone is over $155,000, with $75,000 of that going to the winner.

Kody Hartlaub Captures Williams Grove Rookie of the Year Award; Records Solid September with Three Top-5’s in Four Races

Team Aiming for Elusive 2022 Victory in Two October Opportunities

Mechanicsburg, PA – September 28, 2022

Kody Hartlaub entered the final full month of his 358 sprint car season with the team’s performance trending in the right direction.

 

The summer had not been terrible by any means, but it was below the bar Hartlaub and his team had set for themselves in the early months of the season.  August brought a return of some consistency and a trend toward their early season results.

 

With some good money on the line in September, they were working hard to continue that trend.

 

September 2:  Match Race / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

     [37 cars, Heat 1st (2), A-main 4th (3)]

 

The month opened with the rescheduled Match Race at Williams Grove Speedway, which boasted an increased purse for the 358 sprint cars.

 

The 25-lap Match Race feature event offered a purse worth over $20,000, with $2,021 going to the winner, while the 24th or final finisher would take home $696.  The format for the event had drivers draw for heat race starting positions.  The top five finishers in each of the four heats transferred to the A-main, with the top three making the redraw that would line up the first six rows of the feature.  The balance of the lineup was set via a heads-up format based on heat finishing position.

 

Hartlaub powered into the lead at the start of his 8-lap heat race from his outside front row starting spot.  He led the race from start to finish, but it wasn’t easy.  Veteran Frankie Herr remained within one second of the top spot, waiting for his opportunity, but Hartlaub never flinched and grabbed the win.

 

The redraw provided Hartlaub with the 3rd starting spot for the 25-lap finale.  He held the position until the midpoint of the race when the battle for position heated up.

 

Hartlaub slipped back to 5th and appeared destined to finish there until the caution flag appeared with two laps remaining.  The restart bunched up the field and Hartlaub took advantage of the opportunity, wrestling the 4th spot away from Matt Findley and holding it to the checkered flag.

 

September 3:  Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

     [26 cars, Heat 3rd (5), A-main 3rd (12)]

 

Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway, four heats were lined up by pill draw for the 26 teams on hand.  The top five finishers transferred directly to the main event, with the top two handicapped by season points to set the top eight starting spots.

 

Hartlaub started heat number four from inside the third row and quickly went on the offense, snagging the 4th spot on the opening lap and the 3rd spot by lap two.  He finished in that spot, unable to get close enough to challenge for the runner up position and a shot at the redraw.

 

On the outside of the top ten looking in from his 12th starting spot in the 20-lap A-main, Hartlaub wasted no time showing he had a good car late in the night once again.

 

Hartlaub has passed a lot of cars this season at Lincoln Speedway in feature competition and it was clear early on that this night would be no different.  He passed three cars on the opening lap, another the following lap, and two more on lap three.

 

By lap six Hartlaub was sitting in 4th and had the top spot on the horizon.  After laying claim to a podium spot on lap seventeen, he ran out of time and brought home the 3rd place finish.

 

September 17:  Dirty 30 / BAPS Motor Speedway / York Haven, PA

     [36 cars, Qualifying 1st, Heat 1st (1), A-main 3rd (7)]

 

The Dirty 30 358 sprint car event at BAPS Motor Speedway on September 17th offered the top total purse in the region this season for the popular division.  The payout attracted a solid field of 36 competitors.

 

The field was divided into four groups by pill draw.  Teams would qualify and heat race within those groups to set the lineup for the first twenty spots for the feature event.  The final four spots would come from the B-main.

 

Hartlaub timed fourth quickest in the his group, claiming the pole for the heat race by way of an invert.  He went on to dominate the 8-lap qualifier, winning by 3.3 seconds over Frankie Herr.

 

Hartlaub rolled to the green flag to start the 30-lap main event in the 7th position.  Using a careful but aggressive effort in the early going, he proceeded to pick off a position every few laps, reaching 4th by lap six.

 

From that point on, the gains became more challenging.  Hartlaub turned to a workmanlike effort to focus on gaining ground and closing the gap in front of him.  It took nearly 15 laps, but he finally raced his way into 3rd.

 

Kody then set his sights on the runner up spot and was just 0.766 seconds from that goal when the laps ran out.  The podium finish earned Hartlaub $1,500 for his efforts.

 

I had not been here (BAPS Motor Speedway) in about four years.  It took a little while to get comfortable again and figure out how to get around this place.  I tried to not take big risks by flirting with the wall in (turns) one and two.  The middle was working well for me, so I stuck with it.  Pretty happy to get a podium finish with the good field of cars we had here tonight.“, Hartlaub commented.

 

September 23:  Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

     [35 cars, Heat 2nd (5), A-main 8th (8)]

 

For last Friday night’s 358 sprint car season finale at Williams Grove Speedway, heat lineups for the 35 cars signed in were set by pill draw.  The top five finishers from each of the four 8-lap contests would transfer directly to the A-main.  All non-transfer cars would get one additional shot to make the show via the B-main.  The feature lineup would be ‘heads up’ in finishing order from the heat races, followed by the top four finishers from the B-main.  

 

Hartlaub’s pill draw placed him in the 5th starting spot in heat race number four.  He only needed to maintain position during the 8-lap contest to transfer, but every position earned in the heat race would move him four spots further up the feature lineup board.

 

Wasting no time, Hartlaub charged into 3rd on the opening lap and climbed to 2nd on lap two.  The progress stopped there as he was unable to chase down leader Cameron Smith who went on to win the race by nearly five seconds.  

 

The forward progress in the heat race was huge, as it moved Hartlaub from what would have been a 20th starting spot (had he finished 5th) to the 8th starting spot.  The 20-lap finale was a heated battle in heavy traffic from start to finish.  Unable to find the right combination to move forward toward a fourth top-5 in four races, Hartlaub hovered around 7th and 8th throughout the event and ultimately finished a very respectable 8th.

 

The track had a curb tonight.  That’s something we haven’t seen much this year, so we didn’t have many notes to help us decide how to approach it.  We were too tight.  I don’t have much experience on a surface like this either.  I tried changing my line from the top to the bottom but the car wouldn’t rotate like I needed it to.“, Hartlaub shared.

 

Prior to racing action for the 35 cars on hand, Hartlaub was presented with Williams Grove’s 358 sprint car Rookie of the Year award.

 

Hartlaub finished the year 5th in the season championship point standings at Williams Grove Speedway, 2nd in the 358 Summer Series points, and currently sits 2nd in Lincoln Speedway’s title chase.

 

Up Next

 

It seems there is just one box left for Hartlaub to check in 2022.  It’s the box next to the big “W”; a feature win.  Hartlaub has been one of the most consistent performers on the Central Pennsylvania 358 sprint car circuit this year.  With only four finishes outside the top ten in 21 races, and each of those still inside the top fifteen, the East Berlin (PA) driver has been knocking on the door all season long.

 

That door just hasn’t opened yet to let Hartlaub’s Brewer Home Improvements / Moose Blocks / Smith Titanium / SRR Engines / Siegel Racing / T and N Solutions / Jason Emlet Iron Valley Real Estate / Bigham Appraisals / Pretzel Boy / HAAS Shocks / C.H. Folk & Son Feeds / Chop Designs / Herr Electric, Hartlaub Racing No.2 in.

 

We’re really happy with our season.  We’ve accomplished a lot of good things and learned a lot along the way.  It sure would be nice to get a win though.  That would be the icing on the cake.“, Hartlaub said.

 

Two chances remain on Hartlaub’s 2022 schedule, both at Lincoln Speedway.  Saturday, October 8th will be a regular show for the 358 sprint cars, then the season will conclude the following Saturday with the final points race on October 15th.

Zach Newlin Closes Door On Challenging 2022 Season

Fast Car and Strong Run Comes Up Short at Williams Grove Speedway

Mechanicsburg, PA – September 26, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Chris Hockley / WRT Speedwerx

The 2022 season has been a frustrating one for Zach Newlin to say the least.  There never seemed to be an opportunity to get in a rhythm and build any consistency or momentum.

 

He occupied the seat of a couple different 410 sprint cars over the course of the season, as well as wheeling the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m 358 sprint car.

 

Various circumstances led to his departure from both 410 seats after just a handful of races in each.  Weather, combined with some off-track matters, reduced his already limited 358 schedule by a handful of races.  When Newlin did hit the track, things just didn’t quite go his way.

 

Friday night’s 358 race at Williams Grove Speedway was the season finale for Newlin.  The goal was simply to end on a high note and start his off-season with something positive to build on.

 

September 23:  Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

     [35 cars, Heat 4th (4), A-main 23rd (16)]

 

Heat lineups for the 35 cars signed in were set by pill draw.  The top five finishers from each of the four 8-lap contests would transfer directly to the A-main.  All non-transfer cars would get one additional shot to make the show via the B-main.  The feature lineup would be ‘heads up’ in finishing order from the heat races, followed by the top four finishers from the B-main.  

 

Newlin started outside row two in the fourth heat race.  He slipped to 5th on lap two when the No.2 of fifth place starter Kody Hartlaub got by.  Two laps later, Newlin raced past Dave Hollar’s No.10H to get back to 4th.  Every spot gained in the heat race was worth four spots on the A-main starting grid, but 3rd remained out of reach to the checkered flag.

 

From his 16th starting spot in the night’s 20-lap finale, Newlin initially lost ground.  He fell to 19th in the early going before he finally began chipping his way toward the front.  The Millerstown, PA native worked his way back to 16th by lap six.

 

A few laps later, Newlin reached 14th and had found his groove, turning his fastest lap of the race on lap thirteen.  As he began lap seventeen, working past more competitors on the low side of the speedway, he made contact with the inside fence and abruptly brought an end to his night.  He was officially credited with a 23rd place finish.

 

We had a fast car.  Our finish is on me.  I messed up.“, a frustrated Newlin said.

 

I felt great and was passing cars, but I clipped the inside guard rail coming off turn two and bent the front axle.  We had a top ten car tonight.  That’s just how our season has been.  Either we get caught up in something, we have a part failure or it’s self-inflicted.  That’s how it goes sometimes.  I’m ready to turn the page to 2023.

Reinhardt Has Up and Down Weekend on Home Turf

A Trip to the ‘Big E’ on Tap This Weekend

Abbottstown, PA – September 20, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Chad Warner Photography

Statistically speaking, Kyle Reinhardt’s 2022 season has been a little better than last year, but that’s not much comfort to the Neptune City, NJ native who has struggled to find the consistent speed he needs to put up the stats he knows he and his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 are capable of.

 

Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway, both in the heart of Reinhardt’s home turf, have been the site of good runs for the team in the past.  They came into this past weekend hoping the familiarity would help dial in the missing speed.

 

September 16:  Dirt Classic Qualifier / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA

     [33 cars, Qualifying 6th in Group B, Heat 4th (6), A-main 14th (16)]

 

Friday night Reinhardt was among 33 drivers who signed in for the Dirt Classic Qualifier at ‘The Grove’.  The four-group format was initiated for the program.  While his 6th quickest qualifying run in Group B was still short of the speed he was looking for, he was able to race his way from the 6th starting spot to 4th and transfer into the A-main through his heat race.  It was a step in the right direction.

 

In the 30-lap finale, Reinhardt made a little more progress.  After starting 16th, he moved forward and reached 12th by the halfway point.  The battles for position in the middle of the pack were tight throughout the event.  Reinhardt ultimately finished 14th.

 

September 17:  Dirt Classic IX / Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

     [50 cars, Qualifying 6th in Group E, Heat #5 5th (6), Heat #10 6th (5), B-main 11th (10)]

 

50 teams were in the pits to chase the $20,000 winner’s share of the Dirt Classic IX purse.  The annual All Star Circuit of Champions sanctioned event uses qualifying and double heats to accumulate points and set the starting field for the main event.

 

Reinhardt was slotted in the fifth and final group to go under the clock.  Once again he logged the 6th best lap in the group.

 

From his 6th starting spot in heat race number five, Reinhardt grabbed the 5th spot on the start.  Unable to make additional forward progress, he held on to that spot throughout the 8-lap race.

 

In the tenth heat race, Reinhardt was unable to gain ground in the running order or the point standings for the night.  He started 5th but lost a position on lap two and finished 6th.

 

Reinhardt found himself with an uphill battle when the points were tallied.  He would start 10th in the 12-lap B-main and would need to climb six spots to make the cut for the A-main.  It wasn’t in the cards and Reinhardt’s night ended with an 11th place in the consolation race.

 

Up Next

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will head to Eldora Speedway this weekend for two nights of competition.  First up will be the ‘BeFour the Crowns Showdown’ Friday night with the World of Outlaws.

 

Saturday night’s All Star Circuit of Champions race is part of the ‘4-Crown Nationals’ and pays $10,000 to win.

Newlin Overcomes Qualifying Troubles To Finish 12th at BAPS Motor Speedway

Williams Grove Speedway 358 Sprint Car Season Finale Up Next

York Haven, PA – September 20, 2022

Not only was the ‘Dirty 30’ 358 sprint car event at BAPS MotorSpeedway last weekend part of the Summer Series events schedule, it was the highest paying race of the season for the open wheel division anywhere in the area.  

 

The opportunity for a little extra cash, the series points, and bragging rights brought 36 teams to the York Haven, PA facility Saturday evening.

 

September 17:  BAPS Motor Speedway / York Haven, PA

     [36 cars, Heat 6th (7), B-main 1st (1), A-main 12th (21)]

 

The field was divided into four groups by pill draw.  They would qualify and heat race within those groups to set the lineup for the first twenty spots for the feature event.  The final four spots would come from the B-main.

 

Zach Newlin, aboard the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m, logged a disappointing 7th fastest lap of the nine cars in group one.  

 

From the 7th starting spot in the first 8-lap heat race, Newlin would have to make it into the top five by the checkered flag to advance to the A-main.  He only managed to get to 6th, which shuffled him to the B-main for a final shot to make the show.

 

Newlin was able to take the win in the B-main, leading all eight laps and securing his spot in the 30-lap finale.

 

After getting involved in a lap four incident during the A-main, Newlin navigated his way through traffic from the rear of the field to garner a hard-earned 12th place finish.

 

Up Next

 

Newlin and the Mansberger Motorsports team will be back at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, September 23rd looking to close out the season with a strong finish in the final 358 sprint car race of 2022 at the legendary Pennsylvania facility.

Reinhardt Looks To Get Back in the Groove at Williams Grove and Lincoln After Port Royal Struggles

Port Royal, PA – September 15, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Chad Warner Photography

Kyle Reinhardt rolled into Port Royal, PA last week with his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 for the three-day Tuscarora 50 extravaganza that accompanies the Juniata County Fair.

 

The Neptune City, NJ native has struggled at the fairgrounds half-mile the past couple seasons, but this time he had some reasons for optimism, including fresh equipment and recent improved performance.

 

September 8:  Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

     [49 cars, Qualifying 6th in Group D, Heat 5th (6), B-main 4th (6), A-main 24th (24)]

 

Opening night of the three day event saw 49 teams register for the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) sanctioned show, putting the five group/five heat format for the series into motion.

 

Reinhardt was the 7th of 10 cars in Group D to go under the clock.  He logged the 6th fastest lap in the group, landing him outside row three to start the fourth heat race.  He grabbed 5th on the opening lap and was part of a tight three car battle for third, but he was unable to secure one of the top four spots needed to transfer directly to the main event.  He finished 5th.

 

In the 12-lap B-main, Reinhardt again started 6th needing to reach the top four to make the finale.  With four laps remaining, he worked his way past Zeb Wise and into the 5th position as the pair entered turn three.

 

On lap ten, the caution flag appeared for 3rd place A.J. Flick, moving Reinhardt into 4th for the restart with two laps remaining.  He used the middle of the track to keep Wise at bay and close on third place Michael Walter.  At the line, Reinhardt finished 4th by 0.111 seconds.  It was good enough to put his No.91 in the show.

 

Reinhardt started 24th in the 30-lap A-main, but early on he developed a suspension issue that hindered the performance of his machine.  The end result was a 24th place finish.

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team were presented with the ASCoC Perseverance Award for their efforts.

 

September 9:  The Night Before the 50 / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

     [52 cars, Qualifying 8th in Group D, Heat 8th (8), C-main 3rd (3)]

 

Friday’s car count grew to 52 for the $8,000 to win ‘Night Before the 50’ show.  The five group/five heat format was once again in play.

 

Reinhardt found himself in an early hole when he registered the 8th best lap of the ten cars in Group D qualifying.  He was unable to make any gains in his heat race, starting and finishing 8th in the 8-lap race.

 

Relegated to the C-main where only the top two finishers would advance to the B-main, Reinhardt seemed to catch a break when one of the front row starters didn’t make the call.  Officially slated to start 3rd, he took the green from 2nd but was unable to hold onto that transfer spot and finished 3rd.

 

September 10:  55th Annual Tuscarora 50 / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

     [55 cars, Qualifying 13th, Heat 6th (5), B-main 14th (14), Non-Qual Feature 10th (8)]

 

Saturday’s program leveraged its own unique format (details below) to determine who got a piece of the lucrative pie known as the 55th Annual Tuscarora 50.  The largest piece, the winner’s share, grew from its original $55,000 to $60,000 just hours before the finale thanks to a generous sponsor.

 

The top twelve qualifiers in each flight were inverted to set the heat race lineups, meaning the 10th, 11th and 12th fastest would each sit on the pole for one of the Flight 2 three heat races.

 

A lot of sports are considered a ‘game of inches’.  Racing is a game of split seconds.  Reinhardt registered the 13th quickest time, missing the inversion by a mere 0.022 seconds.  It was the difference between starting on the pole and starting 5th in his heat race.

 

Only the top three finishers from each 8-lap heat race would transfer to the 50-lap finale in the tough, unique format.  From inside row three of heat number four, Reinhardt needed to gain two spots to reach a transfer spot.  It wasn’t in the cards.  He rode home 6th after losing a spot in the closing laps.

 

Reinhardt started deep in the 12-lap B-main; 14th.  Advancing 10 spots against such a tough field was a very tall order.  Unable to gain any ground, he finished 14th.

 

Reinhardt started 8th in the Non-Qualifiers feature, a 20-lap event that awards the winner with $2,000 and a guaranteed starting spot in the following year’s Tuscarora 50.  Despite taking their best shot at adjustments to bring the No.91 alive, Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team wrapped up their three day weekend with a 10th place finish.

 

Up Next

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will remain in Central Pennsylvania next weekend.  Friday night, September 16th, they will race at Williams Grove Speedway in the $6,000-to-win Dirt Classic Qualifier, then they will move over to Lincoln Speedway Saturday night for the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic IX.

Halligan’s Tuscarora 50 Weekend: If It Could Go Wrong, It Did

Team Remains Positive and Determined Entering Final Month of 2022 Season

Port Royal, PA – September 14, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Chris Hockley / WRT Speedwerx

It was finally the weekend Jeff Halligan had been waiting for, and preparing for, all season.  It was Tuscarora 50 weekend at Port Royal Speedway.  Every lap he had made this season and every wrench the crew turned was for the end goal of having a shot at the big pot of gold at the end of the Tuscarora 50 rainbow.

 

They certainly seemed to be doing the right things and be on track to have a legitimate shot.  Halligan sat third in the speedway’s championship season point standings and had two victories to his name in 2022.  

 

September 8:  Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

     [49 cars, Qualifying 2nd in Group E, Heat 1st (1), Dash 7th (6), A-main 27th (7)]

 

Opening night of the three day event saw 49 teams register for the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) sanctioned show, triggering the five group/five heat format for the series.

 

Halligan laid down the 2nd best lap in the fifth and final qualifying group, giving him the pole for the heat race, alongside Brian Brown.  Jeff used the low line off turn four at the drop of the green to beat Brown to turn one.  Using the high side, he wound up his No.45, beating the Missouri driver off turn two and he never looked back.  He went on to win heat race number five by 1.832 seconds.  

 

The heat win put Halligan in the dash, assuring him of a top ten starting spot in the $6,000 to win main event.  The Ephrata, PA driver pulled the number six pill in the redraw, putting him outside row three for the 6-lap race.

 

Halligan held the 6th spot until the final lap when a large lump of clay impacted the front end of his machine, crushing the radiator and oil tank, breaking lines in the process.  With smoke trailing off the left side headers, he managed to get to the finish line but slipped back to 7th.

 

The Risser Motorsports crew went to work immediately upon Halligan’s return pit-side.  Dislodging the clay and crumpled sheet metal was a chore on its own.  Once those were out of the way, the damage to lines and connections for the oil tank and radiator was determined to be extensive enough that an engine change was necessary.

 

In the short window of time between the dash and the A-main, the team managed to pull the motor and prepare its replacement but ran out of time to drop it between the rails of Halligan’s Panther Chassis.

 

Instead of taking the green for the 30-lap A-main from his rightful 7th spot, Halligan borrowed the 77k of BK Motorsports and dropped to the rear of the field per the rules.  He took the green, then pulled off the racing surface, officially credited with a 27th place finish.

 

It was an unlucky and disappointing end to a night that had the makings of a top ten, or possibly top five run.

 

September 9:  The Night Before the 50 / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

     [52 cars, Qualifying 3rd in Group A, Heat 11th (2)]

 

Friday’s car count grew to 52 for the $8,000 to win ‘Night Before the 50’ show.  The five group/five heat format was once again in play.

 

Halligan’s night started off once again on a positive note when he logged the 3rd quickest lap in Group A.  The lap placed him on the outside front row of the first heat race.

 

When the green flag dropped on the start of the heat race at the chalk line in turn four, Halligan’s mount stumbled slightly before it reached full song.  It was enough to drop him to 4th by the end of lap one.  

 

Halligan battled to recover the lost ground but was still sitting 4th with two laps remaining when disaster struck.  He made contact with the outside wall between turns one and two.  The resulting damage to the rear of the car was severe.   The team went to work removing the destroyed axle and suspension parts.  As they prepared to install a new rear end, frame damage was discovered that meant the Risser Motorsports / TheTreeCenter.com / Victory Auto of Lewistown / EMM Sales & Service / Jake’s Golf Carts / Pine Hill Trailers / Keystone Ag SprayingNo.45 was done for night.

 

September 10:  55th Annual Tuscarora 50 / Port Royal Speedway / Port Royal, PA

     [55 cars, Qualifying 19th in Flight B, Heat 5th (7), B-main 5th (12), Non-Qualifiers Feature 2nd (1)]

 

Saturday’s program leveraged its own unique format (details below) to determine who got a piece of the lucrative pie known as the 55th Annual Tuscarora 50.  The largest piece, the winner’s share, grew from its original $55,000 to $60,000 just hours before the finale thanks to a generous sponsor.

 

After spending a long night and morning preparing their second car for the task, Jeff Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team were ready to compete along with 54 other teams.

 

Halligan’s pill draw placed him next to last in the Flight 2 qualifying order.  He ended his run ranked 19th of the 27 cars in the group.

 

From his 7th starting spot in the 8-lap heat race, from which only the top three would transfer directly to the 50-lap A-main, Halligan had his work cut out for him.  He managed to grab 6th on the opening lap, then reached 5th with two laps remaining, but that was where the climb ended.

 

Rolling to the green flag for the 12-lap B-main from the 12th spot, Halligan once again had a tall order in front of him.  Only the top four finishers would make the field for the prestigious Tuscarora 50.

 

Halligan nearly pulled it off.  Charging his way through the field, he claimed the 5th spot on the final lap, but crossed the line one spot short of the goal.  It was a valiant effort but a bitter disappointment for the team that had achieved so much success at Port Royal Speedway thus far in 2022.

 

There was some good news.  For the 20th year in a row, the family and friends of the late Will Gamble of Port Royal presented the Will Gamble Determination Award.  Jeff Halligan was the recipient of this year’s $500 award.

 

The final event of the evening provided Halligan with another unique opportunity.  The 20-lap non-qualifiers feature not only offered $2,000 to the winner, it guaranteed them a starting spot in next year’s Tuscarora 50 which also carried a minimum $2,000 prize.

 

Halligan started on the pole of the non-qualifier’s feature but fell to 2nd on the opening lap.  He chased down race-long leader Sye Lynch on lap ten and wrestled the lead away.  Halligan’s car seemed to be much better on the long runs that it was on the start.

 

A late caution set up a short two lap sprint to the finish.  Halligan held off Lynch to the white flag, but the No.42 was building momentum and challenged for the lead on the final lap.  He managed to slip by, winning by just 0.683 seconds over Halligan.

 

At least this time the car was in one piece, but much like the rest of the weekend, the result fell short of the potential.

 

Weekend Wrap-up

 

That three days felt like three weeks.“, a mentally and physically exhausted Halligan said.

 

Everyone worked so hard all weekend to try keep us going.  I owe a lot to everyone who has helped me, not only this weekend but all season long.  Thank you, Kyle Defibaugh, Jeff Defibaugh, John Simmons, Brian Mullen, Brent Risser and Roger Duttry.”

 

Halligan added, “We also want to give a huge shout out to Tom and Fran Chiappelli for lending us a motor from their Golden Flavor Sesame Sticks team to run Saturday.  They are super people, and we truly appreciate what they did for us.”

 

Last year we crashed on Thursday night and that was the end of our Tuscarora 50 attempt.  We worked hard all year to build our program depth and be better prepared for the big shows.  Even if nothing goes wrong, it’s not easy to run three straight days.  When you have a weekend like we did, it’s really tough.  It didn’t go how we envisioned, but we made it all the way through the weekend and we’re proud of that, as well as everything we have accomplished this season.  We’re going the right direction with our program.”

 

Up Next

 

Tentatively Halligan and the Risser Motorsports team will be in action Saturday night with the All Star Circuit of Champions at the Dirt Classic IX at Lincoln Speedway, however they will make a final decision later this week.

 

Port Royal Speedway will remain the primary focus for Halligan for the balance of 2022.  The team will compete there with the World of Outlaws on October 7th & 8th, then again on October 14th as part of the Short Track Super Series Modified event.
