Second Annual Foothills Fury


Skyline Speedway Results “FOOTHILLS FURY” FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-A large field of cars filled the pits for the Second Annual "Foothills Fury" in the frosty Appalachian Foothills of Southern Ohio at Skyline Speedway Saturday, Nov. 8 where Lockborne, Ohio driver Cole Duncan bested a strong field of 410 sprint cars, while Tim Dohm (Cross Lanes,WV) claimed his first-ever victory at Skyline Speedway. Jeremy Blake claimed the AMRA Modified feature and Pure Stock Features, Tim Dohm doubled up with a $1,000 win in the steel blocks, while Jeff Blanton took the Four Cylinders, and Kyle Bond claimed the Mini-Wedges.
The weather was frosty, but the action was hot in all classes. Polesitter Danny Smith and fast timer Cole Duncan paced the field in the 410 Outlaw Sprints to Todd Gorrell's unfurled green flag.
Touring outlaw Smith jumped out to the early lead, but on the second round young Cole Duncan took over the top spot with a hard-charging Brandon Martin clicking off a quick series of passes up to third. Martin overtook Smith on the third go-round with victory etched on his itinerary. Flexing his muscle, Duncan stretched it out up front. Eddie Slone anchored down a strong fourth and began to challenge Smith for third as Martin rode the high side to close the gap on the leading Duncan.
As lapped traffic came into play, both Duncan and Martin dove to the low side. Martin flanked Duncan coming out of two, but Duncan won the footrace into turn three coming around for the 13th circuit just as Kory Crabtree looped it for the race's first caution.
On the restart everyone dove for the low groove, prompting Aaron Higgins to move to the high side where he quickly passed three cars to notch sixth. Cale Conley then came back to battle Higgins as Duncan pulled a five car lead ahead of Martin. Smith, and Slone in one of his better runs of the year, continued their scuffle for position.
With five to go Duncan blasted into traffic with Martin in tow. Martin tried every move in the book but scrubbed off the needed speed as Duncan picked up his third Skyline victory of the year. Smith brought home a third with Slone in tow, while Higgins cracked the top five--both with fine runs. Rounding out the top ten were Duncan, Martin, Smith, Slone, Aaron Higgins, Josh Davis, Cale Conley, Jimmy Stinson, Keith Baxter, and Ron Blair.
The second chapter of Foothills Fury was about to unfold. In the late Model main, IRS stalwart Tim Dohm of Cross Lanes, WV, coming off fast times in both the super late model and steel block late models, blitzed into the early lead and started to lap the field by lap six. Dohm's mount blasted around the 3/8 mile oval like a rocketship on rails. Meanwhile, Hall of Famer Mike Balzano--in his final race of his storied career--worked the inside in an effort to close the gap.
Dohm continued his rampage and by the halfway mark had a full straight-away lead on Balzano. Jeff Burdette and Chris Garnes engaged in a torrid battle for fourth. Track champ Larry Bond anchored a solid third, but by lap 17 the race took on a whole new appearance as Brent Steele's mount looped around in turn four.
With Balzano peeping around Dohm on the parade lap, the field tightened and Dohm's huge lead was erased. Dohm knew he had his work cut out for him. The veteran motorcycle specialist got the jump with Balzano taking a kamikaze dive for a shot at the lead. Balzano drifted up the banks as Bond turned sharply under Blazo for a challenge of second. Dohm continued his charge, once again encountering lapped traffic with two laps to go. Balzano shut the door on Bond and closed the distance on the leader, but had to settle for second in his last bout in the cockpit, yielding to the highly dominant Dohm. Steve Bigley, Ralph Withem, Nick Corbitt, Jeremy Jarvis, and Tony Roush established themselves as up-and-comers, while "psycho" Anthony Huber came off the tail to a top ten finish.
Rounding out the top ten were Dohm, Balzano, Bond, Burdette, Garnes, Bigley, Withem, Corbitt, Jarvis, Roush, and Anthony Huber.
One of the most competitive races of the evening was the AMRA modified main. Del Cunningham, Jeremy Blake and Adam Jordan went three wide into the first turn with that trio each taking a lead or part of the lead over the first three circuits. Pomeroy's Bill Thorla did a high speed 360, kept his mount going, but still drew a caution as heartbreak city met Cunningham at the city limits as he exited with a flat tire.
Shortly thereafter Jordan was caught up in a fender bender and had to exit, while Blake and Roush were victims in an accident with another car and were able to continue. Resuming the race in the lead, Blake had to hold off Roush for top honors at the checkered flag. Danny Wilson, Dusty Boley and Travis Dickson all fought hard for a top five. Rounding out the top ten behind Blake, were Roush, Wilson, Boley, Dickson, Chuck Yeley, Eric Arledge, Bill Thorla, Rick Neace, and Philip Bapst.
Before Saturday, Tim Dohm had not won a feature at Skyline Speedway. When the night was over he had won two. At the drop of the green in the exciting Steel Block main Ronnie Mayle looped it and lost his outside second row start, pitting Tim Dohm and Tyler Carpenter against one another at the drop of the green. Dohm stormed to the front as K.C. Burdette bagged Carpenter for second. Father Freddie Carpenter challenged son Tyler with the patriarch prevailing for third with Andy Bond close in tow.
Dohm literally checked out on the field with Burdette a full straight behind and the rest of the field left in the central time zone. In almost a repeat of the late model main, Nathan Stotts in Brent Steele's mount looped it in turn four bringing the field closer together on the caution.
As Dohm resumed his mission, Fast Freddie and Andy Bond put Burdette in the center of a Late Model sandwich, and without extra condiments, blitzed right by the young charger on either side. After several lengthy cautions Bond and Carpenter came to life, challenging Dohm for the lead. But once the WV veteran warmed his tires, he was again blitzed to a huge lead and eventual victory.
The top ten were Dohm, Bond, F. Carpenter, Burdette, Tyler Carpenter, Robbie Bostick, John Powell, Jr., Wade Davis, Frank Roush, and Nathan Stotts. Stotts did a credible job for his first stint in a race car.
It was "COLD" outside by the time the Pure Stocks hit the track for their 15-lap feature. Maybe that is why the top ten could have fit under a blanket in one of the closest races of the night. Jeremy Blake, the victor in the modifieds, strong-armed his Chevrolet around the high banks for his second win of the night. George Klintworth and Jeremy Misel fought it out for second, while Gary Gould brought home a strong fourth and Dustin Sprouse fifth. Behind the winning Blake were Klintworth, Misel, Gould, Sprouse, Shelly Powell, Shane Roush, Jake Swain, Joe Misel, and Cody Henthorne.
Jeff Blanton has run the gamut of strong finishes now that he claimed the big victory in the Four Cylinders. Blanton held off George Klintworth for the big win with Jeff Rankin, Steve Brown, Barry Kitts, Matt Fizer, John Bartlett, and Tony Plaugher in tow.
This may not be the last race of the 2008 racing season, however, already a big 2009 schedule is in the works. Look for upcoming events in your local papers, racing trade papers, and <<www.skylinespeedway.net >> the home of Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio.

Jack-O-Lantern Twin 35's

Mintz, Shaver Prevail over Pumpkinfest


Skyline Speedway Results 10-11-08 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-With 141 cars in the pits and a good October crowd, Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway was doing its own version of "Monster Rock" in the first running of the dual Jack-o-Lantern 35's. Northern Ohio invader Craig Mintz, Gibsonburg, Ohio claimed the crown in the 410 Sprint main, while the companion Late Model main was won by Vienna, WV driver Steve Shaver. Mike Martin claimed the Street Stock main, Jeremy Blake won the Pure Stocks, Ryan McClain claimed the Four Cylinders, Tracy Fritter the Mod Lites, and Ronnie Pickens took the Mini Wedge main.
The 410 sprinters took to the speedway first led by dash winner Craig Mintz and All-Star Champ Dale Blaney. Mintz led the first five markers as Blaney mapped out his strategy, diving low past Mintz as the two exchanged positions-and-back on the cross-over. Mintz continued to lead as a lapped car sawed off Blaney and gave the Northern Ohio driver some breathing room.
Mintz took the low road to freedom and garnered some momentum. Meanwhile, Danny Smith began to run down the front runners as a smooth-driving Mintz drove through traffic on cruise control. In-and-out, high and low Mintz's every move was smooth and sneaky-fast.
A lot of close action followed the leaders, but all eyes were on Mintz and his breath-taking moves through traffic. Blaney was no less impressive and by lap 23 was back to within a couple car lengths. Mintz felt Blaney's presence and responded with a sense of urgency. As if shifting into overdrive, Mintz once again opened up the lead to five or more rods, just as the caution waved for a spinning Caleb Griffith on lap 25.
Drivers tightened up their belts, and fans moved closer to the edge of their seats in anticipation for a classic Skyline finish. Cole Duncan, Kevin Lee, and Aaron Higgins all had great runs in a fight for the top five. Mintz went low and Blaney high with two different strategies as Cole Duncan and Aaron Higgins both bagged Smith for third and fourth. Smith responded with a vengeance and battled to regain position.
The first time Mintz visited Skyline Speedway, he liked it. In his last visit Saturday, he absolutely loved it. Mintz rode his rocketship, a Griff's Mopar/Maxim Chassis, into the Skyline record books as Blaney struggled to find any part of turf where his car could make traction. Duncan moved in on Blaney to add to the excitement as Mintz blasted under the checkered for his first Skyline win, while Danny Smith bagged Higgins for fourth at the start-finish line.
"I've been here three times and I absolutely love this place. You guys (Skyline) put on a great show and this is a great track," exclaimed Mintz. "It was an honor to be able to start beside Dale Blaney. He's one of the best. We've raced Dale close on occasion, but to get the jump and eventually beat him was a bonus."
Kevin Lee made his first visit to Skyline a good one, showcasing his talents in the Southern half of the state in placing just ahead of Josh Davis, Jimmy Nier, Keith Baxter, and Cale Conley who rounded out the top ten. Mintz lapped all but the first nine cars.
It wasn't officially an All-Star race, but it could well have been. Several heavy hitters speckled the field for the 2nd Annual Jack-O-Lantern race. Rod Conley and Steve Shaver paced a star-studded Late Model field to the wave of the green, and quickly Shaver Rocketed into the lead. Shaver fought off Conley, then Josh McGuire moved into second for a ten lap rumble that saw numerous lead changes. Finally, on lap eleven McGuire took command and Shaver was now in chase with Mike Balzano in hot pursuit.
By midway, fans in attendance knew they were in for a great race. At the finish it was a well known fact. In fact, many fans concurred it may have been one of the best ever at the Southern Ohio speed plant.
For five circuits Shaver dogged McGuire then the Vienna driver's Rocket/Malcuit hot rod was trapped behind a lapped car. Shaver baited the hook and reeled McGuire back to the end of the rod, finally regaining lost ground and the lead with a daredevil pass on the backchute. Well-scripted, the race's climax would be at the checkered flag. Now the Grayson, KY driver was in the catbird seat and watched as Shaver mastered the high-banked 3/8 mile oval.
McGuire rode low and then high, but Shaver's high-line was the fastest. Still McGuire wasn't satisfied for second as lapped traffic yielded to open turf for the two-lap shootout to the finish. The battle of nip-and-tuck rattled the stands as Shaver prevailed with a solid, hard-earned win. Shaver, McGuire, Mike Balzano, Rod Conley, Delmas Conley, Jason Montgomery, Larry Bond, Chris Garnes, Audie Swartz, and Andy Bond rounded out the top ten.
"I want to dedicate this race to my friend Jack Shutts and his family. I want to wish him the best, this one is for him," said Shaver in victory lane. "It's getting toward the end of the season, so it’s good to finish the season strong. And we finally beat Josh McGuire here...fair and square. He has owned this place so it's really good to get the win."
Shaver's dedication was in response to longtime flagman/scorer and Shaver's neighbor Jack Shutts, who is critically ill and undergoing treatment.(See related story)
Mike Martin and Steve Bigley put on one whale of a show in the Street Stock main. Using all 15 laps and every inch of speedway, Martin pulled off the win by a nose. Bigley charged upon Martin's quarter's early, but could never battle past the consistently quick Martin. Martin led every lap, but the race was by no means a dull one with plenty of action in all parts of the field. In third was Jeremy Blake ahead of Rob Smith, Frank Roush, Dan Reno, Brad Roe, Jason Holstein, Danny Ferguson, and Brandon Thompson.
Jeremy Blake and Jeff Fornash were never boxers, but the boundaries of Skyline Speedway served as the ring for a great fight for number one. Blake withstood all the challenges Fornash had to offer as he rode under the checkered first ahead of Fornash, Jeremy Misel, George Klintworth, Gary Gould, Jamie Gillian, Robbie McCulough, Shawn Donahue, Jake Swain, and Jason Mayse.
Ryan McClain and Tony Plaugher went tooth-and-claw for the Four Cylinder top spot. McClain took the early lead, but Plaugher passed for the top spot with just two laps to go. McClain, undaunted, regrouped to post the big win. Behind second place Plaugher was Keith Young, Zach Kisner, Donnie Bartlett, George Klintworth, Jeff Blanton, David Banks, Ken Young, and Jeff Rankin.
Tracy Fritter was once the king of Modified Lite racing in the area. He returned with all his glory Saturday in claiming a convincing win over Tony Sites. Denny Lamphier was an early casualty and charged from the tail to first in claiming fourth place as the hard charger. Behind Sites were Harold Kuhn, Dennis Lamphier, Tony Tatgenhorst, Chris Stone, James Watson, Joe McFee, Rodney Settle, and Rodney Cossin.
Ronnie Pickens showed why he was the 2008 champ as he flexed his muscle early and held off Will Holland for the Mini-Wedge main. Pickens claimed both the heat and the feature. Behind Holland was Mr. Consistency Zach Fox in third ahead of Kyle Bond, Sydney Staats, Coleman Evans, and Tyler Evans.
Skyline will be idle October 18 and October 25 as race fans trek to the Dirt Track World Championship at K-C Raceway and the following week to the racer's flea market at Fremont. Stay tuned to the Skyline Website for another big show in the first of November.

Harvest 50 Day 2 Results

Skyline Speedway Results September 21, 2008 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Day Two/Championship Day of Harvest 50 Weekend
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Sunday afternoon racing brought 127 cars in five divisions to Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway for the Harvest 50 finale. Great weather greeted a nice crowd to showcase the stunning $5,000 Harvest 50 win of Grayson, Ky's Josh McGuire. McGuire also won the event in 2006. Thirty-nine late models signed into the pits along with 38 AMRA Road Warrior Tour modifieds. The AMRA main was won by Chris Stott of Athens, claimed the $1,000 to win Street Stock Invitational, won the Four Cylinders, and Ronnie Pickens grabbed the Mini-Wedge main.
Kenny Johnson claimed the AMRA Road Warrior Championship by nine points over Dave Defibaugh. The AMRA National points will be determined after next weekend's racing.
The stage was set for the Silver Anniversary edition of the Harvest 50 and twenty-four of the Midwest's finest cars staged pitside for the start of the 25th edition of the ever-growing event. Titusville, PA driver Robbie Blair pulled Josh McGuire on the start leaving the Kentucky driver to settle in for second for the next seven laps. Saturday's winner Steve Shaver, the only driver eligible for the $3,000 bonus, sat in fourth behind Corey Conley. With five laps down, premier driver Mike Balzano and Chris Stotts made contact, sending Balzano to the tail.
On the restart it became a four-car floatilla with Shaver commandeering third from Conley, then passing McGuire on the eighth go-round. McGuire did not concede without a fight and came right back at Shaver during the next ten circuits. Still, Shaver prevailed.
By lap 15 race leader Blair caught lapped traffic with Shaver six lengths back in second. One of the eye-catching runs was that of Tim Dohm. Dohm started in the 22nd slot and by lap 18 was up to 7th, where he began to work on Jason Montgomery. McGuire reeled in Shaver and pulled alongside the Parkersburg driver while Blair stumbled in lapped traffic. It now became an exciting 3-way race.
On lap 24 McGuire moved high by Shaver, then challenged Blair in the same fashion. Announcer Bruce Hines made the call on McGuire as a "Bull with a red-flag in front of his eyes" and old number 41 was fuming. Shaver bagged Blair, and then Blair returned the favor for second as McGuire began to check-out by lap 30.
Coming around for the start of lap 31 Kyle Bates and Chris Carpenter made contact. Around that same point, Donnie Moran went pitside to end a good run for the veteran driver. Dohm had now moved up to fifth and engaged in hand-to-hand combat with Conley.
Meanwhile, McGuire had a very narrow edge over the competition during the next four laps, but the race was slowed once again when Bates was whistled for a caution. Dohm moved into third in the hottest charge of the night as McGuire again checked-out on the restart. Doug Drown challenged Conley for fifth, but while Drown became occupied with that battle Chris Garnes dove low for position. Aukland and Balzano each had zoomed into the top ten.
With his Rayburn high upon the bars, McGuire's missile blasted by lapped traffic. The hard charger had a scare on lap 47 when he banged wheels with Greg Oliver, but recovered nicely and blitzed back to regain command. Dohm Challenged Shaver for second as the duo rubbed doors for much of the last two markers only to find defending champ Shaver garner second spot. Dohm earned a podium finish and hard charger of the race award in third.
McGuire said in victory lane, "By Midway I was doing good to hold on. We set the car up too loose and I was somehow hoping the track would get faster. It was a good thing-- actually-- that those guys got by me. It allowed me to move around and I was able to find the rubber on the track first. The car got straighter and I got faster."
"The key was being patient with the tires. Thanks to Dave Poske and Hoosier Tires. They made this C.J. Rayburn/GCP race engines car lightening fast tonight."
Behind third place Dohm was Blair, Garnes, Conley, Aukland, Balzano, L. Bond, and Drown. After going to the tail, Balzano advanced 16 positions to 8th in a great run. Likewise, Aukland joined Dohm in an impressive run in a 21st-to-seventh explosion. Ironically, all of those machines stepped it up from qualifying B-main runs.
Fast timer Kevin Morehouse took the early lead over AMRA companion Chris Stotts. With a championship on the line, the Road Warrior boys were especially fired up for the big event.
With plenty of rubber laid down by the modified's big brothers, the track locked down to a fast freight train. On the seventh lap, Stotts nosed under Morehouse, while Rick Aukland settled into third. With nine laps down, Robin Dustin went for a loop into the infield in turn two.
Stotts led the pack to the green with 10 of the top AMRA point men close in tow. Jess Hartman had moved into fifth after a race-long battle with Darren Glover. Not only was $1,000 on the line, but also the AMRA championship.
Aukland came to life and by lap 18 had passed Morehouse for second beginning to work on Stotts. Two laps later he ousted Stotts for the top spot. The Zanesville driver then began to pull away. Morehouse and Hartman banged wheels and when a lap 23 caution flew, Morehouse went to the pits with a flat. Hartman moved into third and Jim Fordyce leap-frogged Glover for fourth.
All was well until lap twenty eight when Louis Krushansky piled into a pile of race cars with no place to go. Robbie Evans, Krushansky, and J.P. Roberts exited with disabling damage, while also Lucky Louis suffered a hand injury.
Hartman started to fade late in the race with Fordyce, Glover and Dickson storming towards top five finishes. Aukland paced the field to the green with two circuits to go only to see yet another caution that collected Mark Dickson, Jeremy Blake, and Dave Defibaugh.
With two laps to go on the restart, Stotts tucked in behind Aukland, using lap 29 as the set-up lap, and then going into three Stotts bore down to pass Aukland for the last lap win. Behind Aukland in second were Fordyce, Glover, Hartman, Burdette, Defibaugh, Blake, Nething, and Berwanger.
"Pierce makes a heck of a race car and Hovis makes a heck of an Engine," said Stotts in victory lane. "I don't think Rick (Aukland) would have got back by me if we wouldn't have run in to traffic. I thought I had something for him at the end, but didn't want to show myself too soon. I waited for the last lap to make my move."
2008 track champ Tommy Adkins took the early lead, but had to fend off cousin Dennis Adkins as the duo engaged in their own version of family feud. By lap five Dennis took a commanding lead as Tommy faded to third behind David Banks.
Dennis Adkins resumed the top spot and his kin took over second from Banks as a yellow waved on the last lap. That created a one-lap shoot-out to the finish. Rounding out the top ten were Banks, Shamblin, Klintworth, G. Adkins, Blanton, Brown, Collins, and Bartlett.
Thanks to a series of race sponsors, the powerful outlaw street stocks returned to the Skyline high banks. Jeremy Blake, the AMRA winner from Saturday took the lead from the onset over Steve Bigley and Kenny Isner. Blake was on a mission with Bigley closing the gap in hot pursuit. Bigley's effort was short-lived as Blake began to air it out. The scenario soon changed when Luke Berg looped it complements of Rob Casto. Casto went to the tail as the race continued.
Once again Blake was the class of the field. The hard luck award went to Mike Martin who left the race with a flat after running fifth. Unfortunately, Bigley headed a four car pile-up and was whistled for the caution. Jamey Adams was named hard charger of the race after blitzing from 17th to sixth.
Blake rolled to the win ahead of F. Roush, Powell, Hendrix, Isner, R. Smith, Adams, Berg, Raynor, Reno, and Crum.
Racing will continue October 11th with dual $2,500 pay day for Late Models and Sprints. Modified Lites, Limited Late Models, Pure Stocks, and FWD Four Cylinders will be on the racing card.

Harvest 50 Day 1 Results

Skyline Speedway Results 9/20/2008 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
First Night of a two-day show Harvest 50 Day One
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-With 132 cars in the pits and a packed grandstand, the opening night of Skyline Speedway's Harvest 50 was a huge success. The second night of racing for the weekend will conclude on Sunday, September 21 at 4 p.m. Staking a claim on Billy Jarrell's $3,000 bonus, Showtime Steve Shaver claimed the first leg of the Harvest 50 weekend in the late model division. Aaron Higgins won his third feature of the year in the 410 sprints, Jeremy Blake claimed the AMRA Road Warrior Tour feature, and Brian Shaffer claimed the Pure Stocks.
Of the 47 late models that took time trials, Parkersburg, WV driver Steve Shaver, the defending Harvest 50 champion clocked in with the top time of 14:23. Of the 18 cars that time trialed in the 410 sprint division, Piketon, Ohio's Jimmy Nier clocked in with a 12:82. The overall fast timer in the AMRA Modified Road Warrior Tour was Louis Krushansky of Morgantown, WV with a 15:21.
Four exciting heat races in both the late models and AMRA Road Warriors set the stage for the exciting feature events. The opening act was the first late model heat for which eventual winner Chris Stotts of Athens, Ohio and fast timer Shaver swapped the lead at least ten times and exchanged a few bump-and-runs before Stotts won by a nose at the finish. The exciting heat drew loud cheers from the crowd.
Other heat winners were Corey Conley, Freddie Carpenter, and Ralph Withem while Jason Montgomery, Bub Crum, and D.J. Miller took the three consolation races. AMRA heats went to J.P. Roberts, Vince Conrad, Chris Stotts, Kenny Johnson, and Louis Krushansky.
Starting the weekend, eight drivers still had a shot at the AMRA Road Warrior Title. Kenny Johnson came into Saturday's racing with a narrow lead.
Chris Stotts and Corey Conley pulled the late model field to the drop of the green with Stotts getting the initial jump, only to hand the lap one lead to Conley. Wellsburg, WV driver Conley worked into a groove with Stotts and Chris Garnes in tow. Two top-tenners in Jeff Wood and Doug Drown collided in a bout that involved Jason Montgomery top bring out the first caution.
Conley played tug-of-war with the rest of the pack on the restart, which saw Steve Shaver and Ralph Withem evolve into a recharged/supercharged mode. Shaver blitzed Withem, then nudged by Stotts for third as Garnes pulled into second on lap ten. By the halfway mark, racing three-wide Skyline-style brought the fans to their feet. Shaver bagged Garnes for second, then two laps later both Garnes and Shaver bagged Conley--one on the outside and one on the inside.
Shaver's Rocket/Malcuit-powered #30 worked the traffic through lap 21 with Garnes close on his flank and Conley a close third. Shaver or Showtime as he is known in the racing circles, tasted Billy Jarrell's bonus money, and as defending champ of the Harvest 50 vowed to take care of first-things-first with a Saturday night victory. Any driver that wins both days earns a $3,000 bonus for the weekend.
Freddie Carpenter and Larry Bond poured it on in the last portion of the race, while D.J. Miller and Montgomery each charged off the tail into a top ten behind a good run by youngster Chris Carpenter. Racing was tight back through the pack, but the main focus was on Shaver and his ability to hold off Garnes and Conley for the win.
"I knew we had the car to win tonight if we stayed out of trouble," said Shaver in victory lane. "I really like this track. It's one of my favorites and I seem to know my way around here, but the key was getting the right tires and keeping my cool through the early going."
"Cool" to Shaver maybe, but to the ordinary fan, Shaver's patented rim-riding charge was anything but ordinary. Closer to a shade of insanity, Shaver fueled the cylinders to the highest degree then worked traffic to perfection to fend off strong efforts from Garnes and Conley.
Behind third place Conley was Stotts, Freddie Carpenter, Larry Bond, Ralph Withem, Chris Carpenter, D.J. Miller, and Jason Montgomery.
Lucky Louis Krushansky jumped into the lead of the AMRA Road Warrior feature, setting a blistering pace for the 24-car field. Chris Stotts sawed Krushansky's early lead in half by lap three and two laps later sat perched on the Morgantown ace's hind quarters.
Mark Dickson, J.P. Roberts, and Jeremy Blake shadowed Stott's effort. A couple of tours later Kenny Johnson rode the high side towards a top five. Both Blake and Roberts bagged Dickson, setting a classic dual between Johnson and Dickson, two former AMRA champs.
At the halfway mark, Jeremy Blake was all over Krushansky. The home based operation of Blake saw dollar signs one lap later as he buzzed the veteran "Lucky Louis" and drove off into another time zone well ahead of the pack. Stotts now battled Krushansky and Jeremy Berwanger overtook Johnson for sixth.
Blake has had many titles this year, but one consistent moniker is that of winner. With five to go, Blake was a half track ahead of the 23 cars that remained on the track. Blake's Ellis Chassis/Billy Lloyd Racing Engines #B-4 rode home to his biggest career victory, a $1,000 payday, while Stotts took second, and Berwanger third.
"It feels good," said Blake in victory lane. "It's been a long time coming (to get a Road Warrior win). Up to the midway point, I just tried to be patient to save something for the end."
The sprint car main was also impressive. Aaron Higgins and crew picked up a new car on Wednesday night. Saturday night Higgins put his new JEI in victory lane. Ironically, the new car was one he won in the joint point fund between K-C Raceway and Skyline.
Pole-sitter Adam Strausser took the early lead and led through lap seven before Higgins dove low for the pass in turn one. Strausser made a comeback bid, but was unable to unseat Higgins. Jimmy Nier moved into the catbird seat on lap 12 and three laps later Jimmy Stinson passed Strausser for third.
Freddie Staats continued to be impressive for his second top five of the season, while invader Jack Sodeman, Jr. pulled in sixth ahead of Josh Davis, Kory Crabtree, Brian Benson, and Greg Mitchell.
In the Pure Stock main Brian Shaffer claimed the big win over Jeremy Blake and Frankie Roush. Shaffer battled Blake for most of the race, but his main challenge was enduring the race's five cautions. Shelly Powell, Rick VanDyne, and Matt Holcomb raced hard with George Klintworth for position.
In the end Shaffer's beautiful number 44 prevailed. Rounding out the top ten were Blake, Frankie Roush, Shelly Powell, Rick VanDyne, Matt Holcomb, George Klintworth, Gary Gould, Ryan Wilson, and Derrick Smith.
Racing continues Sunday, September 21 with the big Harvest 50 finale and five exciting classes of racing--Late Models, AMRA Road Warriors, Street Stocks, FWD Four Cylinders, and Mini-Wedges.

Skyline Announces Points' Champions

By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-The "Promoter's Choice 30" served as the backdrop for champions night at Skyline Speedway where Larry Bond of Coolville, Ohio claimed his 20th career Late Model championship and Murray City, Ohio's Jeremy Berwanger claimed the AMRA Modified championship. Tom Adkins of Portland won the Four-Cylinder championship, and George Klintworth took the Pure Stock crown.
The Late Model Championship winner Larry Bond took home a $1,000 certificate for Sunoco Race Fuels, Dan Morrison earned a $500 certificate from Sunoco, and Chris Garnes claimed a $500 valued Loom Aluminum race jack from NAPA.
Behind Garnes in third was Freddie Carpenter, Tony Roush, Ralph Withem, Chris Carpenter, Tracy Fritter, Jeremy Jarvis, and Pat Gillian.
Jeremy Berwanger claimed four Aries Steel Wheels and three sheets of Cornett Aluminum sheets for his championship win. Jeremy Blake took second in the mods with an MSD Power Box and Coil, while Kenny Johnson claimed three sheets of Aluminum from Wrisco. Behind Johnson and fourth in points was Dusty Boley followed by Frank Roush, Mark Dickson, Doug Henry, Ryan Mayle, Jim Ashcraft, and Jeff Wood.
The Pure Stock champion George Klintworth received a Loom Aluminum jack from NAPA for his run at number one. Jeremy Blake won three sheets of Wrisco Aluminum, and Mike Lauer brought home a check for $100. Fourth was Chad Roush followed by Matt Holcomb, Gary Gould, Dusty Adkins, Ryan wilson, Darrin Roush, and Steve Anthony.
The Four Cylinder champ Thomas Adkins won $400, Tim Christopher claimed $300, and Ron Heiss/George Klintworth $200. Barry Kitts, John Rankin, Jeff Rankin, Tony Plaugher, John Bartlett, Steve Brown, and Keith Young.
Danny Smith was crowned champion in the 410 sprints two weeks ago, while Ronnie Pickens won the mini-wedge crown.
Each champ also won a 6-foot trophy from Golden Apple Awards Plus for his respective effort. Skyline owner Billy Jarrell, promoter Sherry James, and the entire Skyline staff would like to thank all drivers, fans, owners, and crews for making this first year under new management one of the best in track history. Skyline will continue to run Saturdays at least through the coveted Harvest 50 weekend, Sept. 20 and 21. Management projects a few more weeks of racing to mid October if weather permits.

 


Skyline Speedway Results 9-13-2008

Garnes, Stinson, Berwanger are the Big Three

Fornash, Stickland, Jones, and Miller claim wins!
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Not even Hurricane Ike could reek havoc on Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway like the twirling tornadoes set off by hard-charging Chris Garnes in the Late Models and Jimmy Stinson in the 410 sprints. Jeremy Berwanger raced to his 8th Skyline win of the year in the AMRA Modifieds; Jeff Fornash took the Pure Stocks, Mike Strickland the Four-Cylinders, Rod Jones the Modified Lites, and Mariah Miller the Mini-Wedges. 87 Cars signed into the pits for what was a quick, exciting night of racing.
In the exciting Late Model main Andy Bond got the jump on outside Pole sitter Bub Crum on the initial start. Crum gave the second generation driver all he could handle until Crum clipped the inside uke tire on lap four. Crum was able to restart, but his cause was now more difficult as Chris Garnes inherited second place.
On the restart Tony Roush put down the hammer and catapulted into the lead on the high side around both Garnes and Bond. Roush, in the Bond Family A-10 of Ronnie Bond, and a former career ride for Andy, looked super strong as he began to work his way through lapped traffic. Andy Bond is now in the Cornell #62.
Roush led a parade of Bond, Garnes and Travis Brookover to the halfway point. Roush continued the charge with the rest of the pack lying in wait. “No Fear” Garnes began to heavily challenge Bond for second. First high, then low the Evans, WV driver set up the pass for second, then began to work on the leader.
Roush was probably never so glad to see a yellow as he left Garnes just enough room on the inside rail. The caution realigned the field in single file with Roush on the point. Jeremy Jarvis and Pat Gillian both charged into the top ten in fifth and sixth, nestling snuggly behind fourth place Brookover.
On the restart Garnes chose the high side and blistered Roush for the lead. With clear sailing ahead, Garnes was the class of the field in bringing home the win. Roush came home second with a great career run. Ralph Withem began a charge up through the pack, while Bub Crum moved back off the tail to finish in the top ten. Behind second place Roush was Bond, Travis Brookover, Jeremy Jarvis, Ralph Withem, Pat Gillian, Bub Crum, Todd Smith, and Robert Kiser. Withem and Crum were the race's hard charges of the night.
In the sprint car main, Jimmy Stinson wrestled away the early lead, but Adam Strausser initiated an early game of nip-and-tuck to take the lead on lap two. The rest of the field did not cross the line before Dallas Hewitt looped it in turn four sending Strausser back to second.
Strausser and Stinson traded slide jobs and third place Jim Nier watched from a close third. First heat winner Dave Dickson bagged visitor and fast timer Jack Sodeman, Jr. only to see Sodeman retake that spot with a bonsai drive off the cushion.
It takes two to tango, but this time Strausser had a new dance partner as Jimmy Nier bagged Strausser for third in another bang-bang battle. Now, the two Billy Jarrell entries were one-two with Stinson starting to build a little pad by lap 13.
As Stinson worked lapped traffic, Nier and Strausser went at it "Battle Royal" style. No one taught these two combatants to “play nice”. The cage fight saw Strausser prevail with a slide job on lap 16 as Nier appeared to lay back and preserve his tires for a stretch run. Meanwhile, Stinson started to check out as he worked traffic to perfection. Strausser gave it everything he had, as did Nier, but their bids to unseat Stinson fell short.
"We've been working hard to get a win here and tonight it paid off," said Stinson. "Billy (Jarrell) and Gary should take all the credit for this one. They set the car up just perfect. Adam (Strausser) and I had a good little battle going, but by lap six I just looked ahead and put the hammer down."
In third was Nier followed by Dave Dickson, Jack Sodeman, Jr., Kory Crabtree, Freddie Staats, Brock Martin, Brandy Bower, Rick Fraley, and Brian Benson. Unofficially, Crabtree took the 2008 "Rookie of the Year" award as the 14-year old phenom continues to improve on a weekly basis. Staats has also become a consistent runner after taking over the reigns of his own #33-s.
In the AMRA modified main, Darren Glover fit Skyline Speedway like a glove over the first few laps of the race. Track Champ Jeremy Berwanger and Robin Dustin sawed at each other for second, while Donnie Nething and Mark Dickson duked it out for fourth.
After shaking Dustin, Berwanger chased down Glover in a terrific two-way battle. Glover hugged the inside tires, while Berwanger edged ahead upon turn three entry. On lap 14 Berwanger edged Glover at the line and Glover became the cat in chase of the mouse. Not many know the way around Skyline in the modifieds like Berwanger. The Murray City ace looked like he was on a Sunday drive as the competition wrung their tires relentlessly in an effort to take over first.
Berwanger continued to craftily tour the fast 3/8 en route to his eighth Skyline feature win of the year. Berwanger, Glover, Dustin, Nething, and Dickson continued in tow as Berwanger's Lightning Chassis/Billy Lloyd Racing Engines #44 raced to victory lane. Glover anchored second ahead of third place Dustin, Donnie Nething, Mark Dickson, Jeremy Blake, Louis Krushansky, Robert Garnes, Brian Whiteman, and Del Cunningham.
Berwanger said, "We're not done yet. We've got two big ones to look forward to next week" in reference to the dual $1,000 pay-days offered up as part the AMRA Road Warrior Portion of the Harvest 50.
Matt Holcomb took the lead in the Pure Stocks and never looked back as he put the pedal to the metal for what appeared to be his third Skyline win in 2008. On lap 13 Holcomb's bid came to a screeching halt as he tagged a lapped car and went to the tail. Jeff Fornash inherited the lead and was off to the races. Fornash who had battled early with Gary Gould was perfect the last two laps in claiming the win. Gould, a consistent Skyline runner, led a hard charge to second ahead of Ryan Wilson, Shelly Powell, and Holcomb who blitzed back into the top five. Wilson continues his string of top five's in what has become a good season for this up-and-comer.
Rounding out the top ten were Derrick Smith, Shawn Donahue, Chad Roush, Shane Roush, and Jake Swain.
Dennis Adkins and Shawn McClain traded paint on a regular basis in the early portion of the Four-cylinder main. McClain's machine has seen victory lane a couple times in 2008, but Adkins--once a dominant force at the Stewart Speedplant-- was seeking his first 2008 Skyline win. Mike Strickland's mount came through the pack with a wild roar, but Adkins continued to lead through the mid-way point.
Strickland and Adkins traded cross-over moves until finally with one lap to go Strickland took the lead for good. An equally good battle for third was one by inches by McClain over Grumpy Adkins.
The Modified Lites added a new dimension to Skyline racing with 18 of the high-powered motorcycle-engine powered machines taking the green. Rod Jones brought home the win over Marc Marcussi, Todd Canter, Kenneth Meadows, and Matt Hall.
Mariah Miller took the Mini-Wedge main after Sydney Staats led the three-quarters of the race. Miller bagged Staats for the lead with two laps to go en route to the win.
Skyline races the coveted Harvest 50 on two days, Sept. 20 and 21, next Saturday and Sunday.

Montgomery wins Promoter's Choice 30


Skyline Speedway Results Saturday 9-06-08
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-The Promoter's Choice 30 kicked off Saturday night racing at Skyline Speedway with Jackson, Ohio driver Jason Montgomery claiming the $3,000 paycheck from the night's main honoree, promoter Sherry James. Montgomery posted the win over a star-studded field, besting Parkersburg, WV driver Mike Balzano in a close finish in the 30-lap affair.
Track Champion Danny Smith claimed the Sprint car A-main, while Jeremy Berwanger claimed his seventh AMRA main at Skyline, Jeremy Blake took the Pure Stock main, and Ryan McClain claimed the Four Cylinder feature.
The top three drivers in all divisions received their points' trophies/awards in an on-track ceremony preceding the features. A separate point’s story will announce the top ten in all of Skyline's six divisions. Also, Sherry James was honored as promoter of the Skyline Speedway. The evening's event was named in honor of Sherry--The Promoter's Choice 30.
On the initial start of the PC-30, fast timer Steve Shaver was cited for jumping the gun and relegated to the second row. Now Chris Garnes and Jason Montgomery paced the field to the unfurled green flag of starter Mike Haught. Garnes got the jump, but Montgomery in Jeff Gress's Gress Oil Rayburn had the momentum coming off turn four of the first lap.
Montgomery had his hands full from the onset as Garnes, Mike Balzano, and Steve Shaver all were breathing fire down the leader's neck. After a caution on lap four, Garnes and Montgomery pulled away somewhat, but two laps later Showtime Shaver entered stage left to ignite a torrid battle with Mongomery. On the next tour, Shaver was whistled for getting a little too hard into turn one and drew the caution as Montgomery sailed into a spin.
Breathing new life, Montgomery quickly checked out on the field, leaving Garnes and Balzano to fight for second. At this point the best battle was for third between Tony Roush, Steve Bigley and Barry Doss who went three wide in the battle for position. Meanwhile, Shaver was living up to his "Showtime" namesake, charging into the top ten by lap 16. By the time that a lap 19 caution waved to send Andy Bond to the rear, Shaver had rocketed to seventh.
It took a few races for Bigley to adjust from his Street Stock to a full blown late model, but the talented driver has really cut the learning curve as he battled Garnes hard for third in an impressive run. Shaver, meanwhile, nibbled on the quarters of Roush and Doss for a top five.
With two laps to go Balzano pulled alongside Montgomery, but the high flyer from Jackson moved to the low groove and shut the door on Balzano, one of the nation's best all-timer chargers. Balzano made a final bid in three and four, but Montgomery's momentum carried him to the win. Bigley earned his best LM finish with a strong third ahead of flat-footing Steve Shaver, the hard charger of the race. Bigley was also a co-hard charger in an 11th to third place run.
"Rayburn Race Cars! What else can I say," said an ecstatic Jason Montgomery. "Jeff (Gress) put me in this car and it worked like a dream. There at the end Mike (Balzano) showed me his nose and I knew I had to step it up. I had soft tires on and had to be careful not to wring them, but I also knew I had to push it a little harder and get to where he wanted to be. I must have played it just right."
In the sprint main Adam Strausser took the lead over pole sitter Danny Smith. Aaron Higgins also bagged Smith while Keith Baxter moved in on Smith's tail. As Strausser coasted with a rim riding charge, Smith gained some new life and bagged Higgins. Higgins countered and retook second a lap later.
Strausser started to fade as the trio went three-abreast through lap ten. On the thirteenth circuit Smith bagged Strausser for his first lead, then a lap later improving rookie Wes McGlumphy looped it for the race's first caution.
Still dawning his Gambler paint scheme, Smith checked out on the restart and never looked back, returning to victory lane for the 11th time this season at Skyline. Baxter came on strong to take second over Strauser, Higgins and Jimmy Stinson. Rounding out the top ten were Dave Dickson, Cale Conley, Eddie Slone, Benny Hickel, and Brandy Bower.
For 13 laps Jeremy Blake was the leader, but ill-fortune befell him and another Jeremy, Jeremy Berwanger, the 2008 champion, took the lead. The two Jeremy's wagered an epic battle early, then Chris Stotts made it a three-way race before Blake fell by the wayside. Berwanger, once in the lead, was off to the races and the checkered flag in putting an exclamation point on his storied championship season.
Stotts came home in second ahead of Mark Dickson, Dave Defibaugh, Jerry Voltco, Louis Krushansky, Del Cunningham, Dusty Boley, Travis Dickson, and Jeremy Blake. Mark Dickson was the hard charger of the race, coming off the tail to third. Mark’s son Travis Dickson debuted one of the new "Hot Mod" cars, an economy class car of the future. Stotts was the hard charger.
Talented Jeremy Blake pulled away early and finished strong in posting the Pure Stock main. Ryan Wilson, Derrick Smith, and Dusty Adkins battled hard for position, dicing back and forth, but finally finishing in that respective order behind Blake. Following Adkins were Gary Gould, Steve Anthony, Tony Roush, Jr., Frankie Roush, and Matt Holcomb.
Ryan McClain took the early Four-Cylinder lead, but Frank Shamblin the flying Rookie had victory in his sights as the two dueled for the duration of the race. Shamblin took the lead on lap 13 but McClain dug back into the groove to pull out the win.
Rounding out the top ten behind Shamblin were Donnie Bartlett, David Banks, David Rankin, Ken Young, Denzil Barker, Jr., Steve Brown, John Bartlett, and Barry Kitts.
Skyline will race Saturdays through September with the "Biggie" of the year, a two-day Harvest 50 on September 20 and 21. The winner could possibly bring home $11,000 by winning both days.

Skyline Announces Points' Champions

By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-The "Promoter's Choice 30" served as the backdrop for champions night at Skyline Speedway where Larry Bond of Coolville, Ohio claimed his 20th career Late Model championship and Murray City, Ohio's Jeremy Berwanger claimed the AMRA Modified championship. Tom Adkins of Portland won the Four-Cylinder championship, and George Klintworth took the Pure Stock crown.
The Late Model Championship winner Larry Bond took home a $1,000 certificate for Sunoco Race Fuels, Dan Morrison earned a $500 certificate from Sunoco, and Chris Garnes claimed a $500 valued Loom Aluminum race jack from NAPA.
Behind Garnes in third was Freddie Carpenter, Tony Roush, Ralph Withem, Chris Carpenter, Tracy Fritter, Jeremy Jarvis, and Pat Gillian.
Jeremy Berwanger claimed four Aries Steel Wheels and three sheets of Cornett Aluminum sheets for his championship win. Jeremy Blake took second in the mods with an MSD Power Box and Coil, while Kenny Johnson claimed three sheets of Aluminum from Wrisco. Behind Johnson and fourth in points was Dusty Boley followed by Frank Roush, Mark Dickson, Doug Henry, Ryan Mayle, Jim Ashcraft, and Jeff Wood.
The Pure Stock champion George Klintworth received a Loom Aluminum jack from NAPA for his run at number one. Jeremy Blake won three sheets of Wrisco Aluminum, and Mike Lauer brought home a check for $100. Fourth was Chad Roush followed by Matt Holcomb, Gary Gould, Dusty Adkins, Ryan wilson, Darrin Roush, and Steve Anthony.
The Four Cylinder champ Thomas Adkins won $400, Tim Christopher claimed $300, and Ron Heiss/George Klintworth $200. Barry Kitts, John Rankin, Jeff Rankin, Tony Plaugher, John Bartlett, Steve Brown, and Keith Young.
Danny Smith was crowned champion in the 410 sprints two weeks ago, while Ronnie Pickens won the mini-wedge crown.
Each champ also won a 6-foot trophy from Golden Apple Awards Plus for his respective effort. Skyline owner Billy Jarrell, promoter Sherry James, and the entire Skyline staff would like to thank all drivers, fans, owners, and crews for making this first year under new management one of the best in track history. Skyline will continue to run Saturdays at least through the coveted Harvest 50 weekend, Sept. 20 and 21. Management projects a few more weeks of racing to mid October if weather permits.

Skyline Speedway Results 8-22-08
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-The dog days of summer can create both havoc and excitement. Skyline had a little bit of both. Not only was temperature in Athens County registering a blistering level, but the racing at the Southern Ohio hotbed was once again equally hot. AMRA Modified icon Louis Krushansky has won practically everywhere he has raced, but he had never won a Skyline main until Friday night. The win was a hard-fought one over AMRA competitor Kenny Johnson, who paved the trail for the pack over the first seven laps.
In the other divisions veteran barnstormer Andy Bond of Coolville, OH claimed the Late Model mega-feature, while rising star Aaron Higgins claimed his second win of the year in the 410 Super Sprints. Stalwart stock car driver Jeremy Blake claimed the exciting Pure Stock main, while Tommy Adkins--perhaps the nation's winningest driver with 30 A-main wins-- claimed the Four Cylinders, and Kyle Bond took the Mini-Wedge main.
"Lucky Louis" as he is known nationwide, didn't need much luck Friday. He was just plain fast. Although final points were not tallied at press time, Jeremy Berwanger may well have had his championship run stymied when he left the race early with mechanical problems. Berwanger has been a big winner and solid runner in this hotbed of open wheel racing.
Hassy Chassis House man Kenny Johnson led the first seven circuits. A tacky track allowed for 3-wide flatfoot racing with Johnson diving low in the early going, only to have Morgantown's Krushansky root him off the bottom for a lap eight pass. Johnson stayed close with Kevin Moorehouse making it a 3-way battle.
Likewise, Roy Roush, the hard charger of the race, up from 14th to fourth, won a battle with Donnie Nething, John Burdette, and Jeff Wood. Krushansky, the Florida Speedweek winner, and talented traveler of the AMRA circuit rolled on to the win over Johnson, Moorehead, Roush, Nething, Burdette, Dickson, Wood, Doug Henry, and Jeremy Blake.
It had been some time since Andy Bond had been in Skyline's Victory lane, but Friday night Bond took the lead on lap two and led the rest of the way. Bond took the advantage over Steve Wilmoth, then held off the challenges of Jeff Wood to bring home the win for owner John Cornell.
Several major pile-ups decimated the field early, as five cars went pitside in the first six rounds. Once the race gained some momentum, so did the low-riding Bond who flat-footed his Rocket around the inside rail, not leaving any room for Wood to root him out. Wood put on a show in an effort to somehow get by, but Bond would ultimately prevail.
Freddie Carpenter, Wilmoth, Chris Garnes, and Travis Brookover battle viciously for position, while Steve Bigley gave his Mastersbuilt a tremendous ride before fading somewhat to a very respectable eighth.
Carpenter tried Wood several times, but became occupied with Wilmoth for a heated fourth place battle-grind. When the checkered flag fell it was Bond, Wood, Carpenter, Wilmoth, Garnes, Brookover, the hard charging Tony Roush, Bigley, Tracy Fritter, and Kyle Bates. Travis Brookover was the hard charger from 17th to sixth.
Several weeks ago Aaron Higgins of Waverly, Ohio was the class of the field until his bid for victory was dashed by a lapped car. He wasn't careful by any means this week, however, Higgins claimed his second sprint car feature of the year after a race-long battle with Chillicothe's Keith Baxter. Higgins took the early lead and appeared to be pulling away from the pack when the race's first caution flew.
On the restart, Baxter put his nerf on the backside of Higgins, then two laps later took the lead. Higgins kept pace for several laps, but began to fade before once again charging back to Baxter, who was now in lapped traffic.
Nick Naber made it a three-way race for the top spot with Jimmy Stinson also closing in for a shot at the win. One could have thrown a blanket over the roaring daredevils in the top three. On lap 21 Baxter bobbled upon turn four exit, allowing just enough room for Higgins to squeeze through for the lead. Baxter gathered it back up and began his second hunt only to feel the agony of defeat with a last lap spin as the checkered waved.
Higgins remained poised and brought home the win over daredevil speedster Naber, Stinson, Fine Wine Dave Dickson, who asserted himself as one of the Valley's front-runners, and Cole Duncan.
Duncan led a charge of racers battling for the top ten, bring home a fifth ahead of Mark Imler, Greg Mitchell, Josh Davis, Wayne McPeek, and Fast Freddie Staats. After lapping a portion of the field, Baxter still managed 11th. Brandy Bower and Kory Crabtree started the feature despite taking nasty rollovers in their respective heats. It was 14-year old Crabtree's first venture into the upside-down club after posting top ten finishes much of the season.
Skyline Pure Stocks are Race Stocks. An-often three wide battle between early leader Brian Shaffer, Jeremy Blake, and Matt Holcomb left no room to tango. Shaffer flexed his muscle early with Blake nipping at his quarters, then when Blake moved a groove up Matt Holcomb snuck into the bottom groove. Positions shuffled as the jockeys sawed at the wheel with the masterful Blake taking the lead on lap ten. Still 3-wide, Holcomb took second with two laps to go. Blake held on for the win with Holcomb and Shaffer following.
Behind the three front runners were George Klintworth, Ryan Wilson, Chris Ice, Rick VanDyne, Bobby Lilly, Gary Gould, and Darin Roush. Rick VanDyne in R-82 was the hard charger of the race.
Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee are getting heavy competition from the infamous Tommy Adkins/Tim Christopher battles. When these Four-Cylinder hot guns hit the track, they wage all-out war. The T-and-T battles are among the best-ever as far as closeness and the pack often runs for third.
Friday was not any different. Christopher took the lead with Adkins riding his steed in hot pursuit. The A-2 finally made the pass on lap five and the tables had turned. Then on lap 10 of the 12-lapper, disaster struck big time as a flat-footing Christopher clipped the inside rail and flipped violently in a series of 5-6 snap rolls before landing on all fours. Only shaken, Christopher emerged from his disabled mount and watched Adkins coast to the win over rookie sensation Frank Butch Shamblin, Shawn McClain, Grumpy Adkins, Keith Young, Tony Plaugher, George Klintworth, Jeff Rankin, John Bartlett, and Jeff Blanton. Grumpy Adkins was the hard-charger.
Oh what a night in the Mini-Wedges as Kyle Bond won the battle and Ronnie Pickens claimed victory in the war. Pickens won the points championship for the youngsters after posting a great year of success. Bond, however, was the best on Friday.
Bond's win wasn't easy as Zach Fox passed for the lead and gave Bond a handful for the entire race. The two diced back and forth like the big boys to kick off an exciting evening of racing. Rounding out the top ten were Bond, Fox, Stevie Magyar, Pickens, Will Holland, Logan Nay, Sydney Staats, and Mariah Miller.
Skyline's track crew and management would like to apologize for an equipment issue that delayed the start of Friday's racing. Skyline strives to put on a good show each week, but sometimes the best plans run awry. Skyline will be idle with no racing on August 29, but will return with Saturday night racing on September 6 with the $3,000 to win Promoter's Choice 30 for Late Models.

Skyline Speedway Results August 15, 2008

By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-With the full moon shining on the Skyline Speedway surface, the racers were really howling, and thus a great back drop for some of the season's best racing. 105 cars flooded the pit area, ready to put on a show for the fans in attendance. Starting his career as a true outlaw--by the old definition of racing "what ya got, where ya want"-- and concluding this season in the same style, Danny Smith via Danville, IN and now from Chillicothe, Ohio claimed the Skyline Speedway 410 Sprint Season Championship race and Skyline Speedway point’s championship Friday night. He is also the nation's winningest 410 sprint car driver as of last report with 16 overall.
Josh McGuire has won all but one race he has raced in at Skyline Speedway. Reportedly, Friday's win was number seven in the late models. Jeremy Berwanger, Murray City, picked up the AMRA Modified main, Tommy Adkins (Portland, Ohio) picked up his 28th win of the year with another Four-Cyl. A-main, and Shawn Jett took the Pure Stocks.
In an unusual occurrence, the way the qualifying heats shuffled out in the sprints, three racing promoters/owners made the feature- Skyline's Billy Jarrell, K-C's Jimmy Nier, and Ohio Valley's Wayne McPeek.
On the second restart of the sprint main, Josh Davis and Hud Horton made an Adam Strausser sandwich. Davis, second in Skyline points had his job description compounded when he went to the rear with Horton. Strausser exited with a flat. Davis had a chance at the point’s championship, but Danny Smith put an exclamation point on his bid for the crown with a feature win as both drivers ended with great seasons.
Third place starter Cole Duncan took the initial lead, then on lap two 5th place starter Danny Smith blasted by Jimmy Nier and Duncan, anchoring his stronghold on points. In the mix Nier briefly held the lead, but couldn't make it stick. After a Kory Crabtree spin, Smith throttled up and slashed away the competition in his 'run for the money' in win number ten at Skyline. Meanwhile, Davis was charging off the tail as Keith Baxter and Duncan bagged Nier for second and third.
Baxter closed the gap, but "the Gambler" Smith worked traffic to perfection. Smith's Maxim dawned the original "Gambler" colors and a number 18 like his ride in the original Kenny Rogers Gambler car. By lap 16 Baxter, aboard Eddie Slone's 4x, pulled alongside Smith, but the slide scrubbed off some speed. Smith again pulled away. Crabtree clipped the wall on lap 22 setting up a three lap shoot-out to the finish.
Baxter didn't need the caution. His tires cooled and slowed his run, while Smith's expertise in finishing what he started unfolded. Smith got a great jump on the restart, used his noggin, and dove to the lowside where he blasted the competition for win number ten. Baxter came home second with Duncan a close third, followed by Nier, McPeek, Aaron Higgins, Mark Imler, Dave Dickson, Jimmy Stinson, and Josh Davis. Davis was the hard charger from the tail to 10th.
Wayne McPeek, who had a great outing and who nearly nipped Smith in the heat, posted a strong 5th in the Tingler/Pete Smith Tribute Car-The West Virginia Sprinter.
"It means a lot (winning the championship)," said the winner Smith in victory lane. "We decided early this year to pick and choose races, stay close to home, and have some fun. We're having fun and we won the championship in the process. You couldn't ask for anything more. Steph and I have a home in Chillicothe now and we'll be moving the shop there soon. It feels great to have the year we've had and to be here in Ohio."
It wasn't a "special event" officially, but the quality of cars in the star-studded late model event was indeed special. Cars from four states representing three of the nation's top sanctions took the green.
Josh McGuire, Grayson, KY was so good it looked like he was chasing his tail, leaving the competition to fight the gunfight with a pocketknife. McGuire's Rayburn hooked up like a rocketship and within three laps, he was a half track ahead lapping the backmarkers. In a lap eight scrap Freddie Carpenter was called for the yellow and sent to the tail. That set a charge from the tail to 12th.
McGuire resumed his charge and there was never ever much of a race to it. A great battle did develop for second among the cars of Corey Conley, Larry Bond, Mike Balzano, and Chris Garnes. Balzano was fast on the low side, perhaps one of the fastest cars on the track, but the veteran Hall of Famer was boxed in with no place to go. McGuire was already in the next state, however, the field's chances improved on lap 22 when Pat Gillian's mount slowed, forcing a caution and tightening the pack.
Larry Bond was the greatest beneficiary of the caution as he was able to squeeze by Conley for second as McGuire raced away to victory. Balzano nipped Conley for third at the stripe, while Garnes took fifth ahead of Jeff Wood, Rick Aukland, Audie Swartz, Tony Roush, and Ralph Withem. Withem came from 17th to tenth to earn hard-charger honors, just over-shadowing a good run to 11th by Steve Bigley.
In the AMRA Modifieds, early leader Jeremy Berwanger looked like a beekeeper being chased by a swarm of bees. Leading the swarm was 2007 national champ Doug Henry with Kevin Moorehouse and Jeff Wood buzzing from behind. After numerous challenges from Henry, Berwanger sustained the lead. Henry tried everything to overcome the leader, but his tires began to seal over. Then at the midpoint, Moorehouse nudged under Henry for second. Moorehouse closed in on Berwanger, the Murray City Flash, but the talented charger wasn't about to get stung. Berwanger went green-to-checkered in a stalwart performance.
Old Faithful Jeremy Blake stoked up the ole number four and filtered into the mix, giving Henry a run for third after bagging a high-flying Wood. Blake took third as the checkered waved over the winning #44 of Berwanger and Moorehouse. Behind third place Blake was Doug Henry, Jeff Wood, Andre Layfield, Roy Roush, Mike Long, Jason Brookover, and Anthony Kincade. Blake was hard-charger from ninth to third.
Tommy Adkins and Tim Christopher once again put on a great battle in the Four Cylinders, but Adkins has had the advantage the past three weeks in the A and C war. Ryan McClain and Eugene "Grumpy" Adkins put on a show for third, but finished in that order ahead of Meigs County's Jeff Rankin, Tony Plaugher, George Klintworth, Donnie Bartlett, Barry Kitts, and Randy Fryar. Great racing highlighted the fights for position, but Adkins proved to be the class of the field once again.
Pole-sitter and talented lady racer Shelly Powell jumped into the lead at the drop of the green in the Pure Stock A-Main. Powell held off Street Invite winner Shawn Jeff, but looped a 360 in front of the field, allowing Jett to take the lead. Powell lost only three positions and settled in third behind Matt Holcomb and Ryan Wilson.
Holcomb fought hard to overtake Jett, but Jett once again prevailed in the 15-lap event. Holcomb brought home second ahead of Wilson, Powell, Tommy Murphy, Jeremy Blake, Curt Reck, Gary Gould, George Klintworth, and Steve Anthony. Gary Gould was the hard charger from 14th to 8th.
Kyle Bond put a juke and jive move on early leader Ronnie Pickens in lapped traffic to claim the Mini-Wedge main. Bond ran down Pickens then made the winning pass, while Zach Fox had another impressive run in third. Fox was followed by Will Holland, Mariah Miller, Seth Beeler, Brooke Beeler, and Broc Jordan.
Skyline will hold the Season Championships in all divisions (except sprints ) Friday, August 22, then take August 29 off before switching to Saturday's September 6 for the "Promoter's Choice 30"-Tribute to Track Promoter Sherry James. That premier Late Model event pays $3,000 as a tune-up for the Harvest 50 on September 20 and 21.

Skyline Speedway Results August 8, 2008 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-When opportunity knocks, one best be prepared to answer. Not once, but twice opportunity knocked at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway, where young Cole Duncan and veteran Chris Stotts were there to answer the call. Duncan claimed the 410 Sprint feature for his second career win, and Stotts claimed the AMRA Road Warrior Tour $1,000 pay check. Chris Garnes, Evans, WV claimed the exciting late model main, while Matt Holcomb took the Pure Stock main, Tommy Adkins claimed win number seven in the Four Cylinders, and Ronnie Pickens picked up the Mini-Wedge feature.
The sprints took to the track first with fast-timer Aaron Higgins taking the lead over dash-winner and pole-sitter Cole Duncan on the turn two exit. Higgins then went on to blitz the field in dominant fashion, an apparent heir to his second Skyline win. Duncan settled in to a comfortable second after an early battle with veteran Dave Dickson.
Dickson then engaged in a race-long battle with Adam Strausser for third. Strausser mesmerized the fans with a gallant rim-riding blast, while Dickson used the low road to success. Meanwhile, Jimmy Stinson rocketed from 12th to fourth, but on lap nine jumped the turn two cushion then straddled the concrete wall for nearly 100 feet in a shower of sparks before snagging the track surface and tumbling a couple times to bring out the red.
Keith Baxter and Josh Davis were charging from deep in the pack to the top six, with a top five being anchored by talented 14-year old Kory Crabtree. Crabtree continues to climb the ladder and ran in the top five the entire night. Meanwhile, Baxter came off the tail to third for hard-charger honors.
Higgins brought the field to the restart at a snail's pace, then throttled up to an uncontested lead. On lap 15 hard-charging Wayne McPeek's mount broke sending him into a spin and ending his top ten run. Back in the pack Benny Hickel, Mark Imler, and Greg Mitchell battled hard. Higgins survived yet another caution with a faster restart, but once again he shot into the lead. Dickson and Strausser resumed their high-intensity tiff, but on the 21st circuit Wes McGlumphy lost the handle and collected the leader Higgins, ending both driver's nights and sending Higgins to the trailer with nothing but heartbreak.
Higgins' misfortune was Duncan's treasure. Duncan jumped into the lead with Dave Dickson on his heels and Strausser on the high side. Strausser clipped the wall and did a couple roll-overs to end his fine run. Duncan roared on to the win over Dickson, Baxter, Davis, Crabtree, Imler, Hickle, Greg Mitchell, Brandy Bower, and Brian Benson.
"It's not as great as the first one, but it's still a great feeling," said Duncan of win number two. "I hated to see that (accident) happen to Aaron, but at the same time it's nice to be in position to win."
When the AMRA Road Warriors come to town, they are indeed warriors and excitement is at a premium. Fans did not leave disappointed Friday night. A nearly identical script highlighted the AMRA Road Warrior feature as Mark Dickson of Gallipolis, Ohio blasted into the early lead of fast timer Kenny Johnson, the Southside Flyer. On laps 9-11 second place Chris Stotts appeared to close the gap in lapped traffic, but once Dickson cleared the fourth back marker he once again stretched it out over Stotts.
Stotts was left to battle with Jeremy Berwanger and Johnson for second, just as Doug Henry blasted into the mix with Jeremy Blake in tow. Blake had a great run going, then an encounter with another car altered Blake's alignment and the local ace began a fade, and eventual DNF.
Louis Krushansky took center stage for the touring outlaw modifieds, craftily working into the top five as Berwanger continued to fend off Johnson and work on Stotts for second. Dickson continued his dominance until disaster struck on lap 24 of the 30-lap "A". Dickson reportedly shucked a driveshaft, ending his night and bid for certain victory.
Stott's enjoyed his view from the catbird's seat and inherited the lead, spending the last six laps strategically fending off the oncoming Berwanger with Krushansky in the third. The battle for number one was fierce with the rest of the pack bearing down close behind for position. Behind Krushansky was Henry, Riddle, J.P. Roberts, Johnson, John Burdette, Brian Whiteman, and Ryan Mayle.
"I had my hands full tonight, but we got here to victory lane. That's all that matters," said winner Chris Stotts. "There for a while I think I had something for Mark (Dickson), but got caught up in lapped traffic. I hated to seem him drop out, but knew if we were smart we had a good chance for the win. Jeremy (Berwanger) battled me hard the whole race."
Kenny Riddle took hard-charger honors by a couple positions over a similarly impressive effort from J.P. Roberts. Riddle came from 20th to fifth, and Roberts from 17th to sixth. Robin Dustin came from 21st to 11th.
The always tough late model division saw a couple newcomers in town to prepare for the $3,000 to win September 6 late model extravaganza. Going green to checkered without caution, Chris Garnes won his third Skyline main in the powerful late model division. Third generation driver Audie Swartz took the initial lap one lead, then outside pole-sitter Jeff Wood battled back to lead the second and third circuits. Not to be denied, Swartz regained the lead through lap seven when eventual winner Garnes took the top slot.
Despite heavy traffic Garnes was able to outpower Swartz for the duration, while Larry Bond overtook Wood for third. Bond and Wood had a great dual the entire race, then after the elder Bond secured third, Wood had to duke it out with the youngest of the Bond siblings, Andy Bond.
As Garnes raced to the victory circle with Swartz in tow, Bond followed with Wood, Bond, Dan Shrigley, Jason Montgomery, Tony Roush, Chris Carpenter, and Dan Morrison in sequence. Montgomery earned hard-charging honors in a 17th to 7th run, while Dan Morrison came from 16th to 10th.
What a difference a week can make. Last week, Matt Holcomb had 'one of those nights' where things just didn't go right. This Friday he had 'one of those nights', but this time it was of the good variety. Jeremy Blake is the in-house hot shoe at Skyline Speedway, but Friday Holcomb unseated the bountiful Blake. Holcomb took the lead from the outside pole and waltzed to victory with Blake strikingly close behind every inch of the way.
George Klintworth, another top consistent runner, edged out Anthony Maynard for fourth, while Gary Gould fended off Dusty Adkins for fifth. Adkins had manifested a run from 12th to sixth, while Ryan Wilson-coming off a good run last week- came from the tail to 7th for hard charger honors. Brandon Oliver, Jake Swain, and Darrick Smith rounded out the top ten.
The two heavy hitters in the Four Cylinder division- Tommy Adkins and Tim Christopher - led the field to the start of the A-main. Usually, a fireworks of a battle, Friday's version was a kinder, gentler battle, but no-less a good race. Adkins led every lap to claim his seventh win of the year at Skyline, his third consecutive win, and his 26th win of the year overall. Last weekend, Adkins picked up four feature wins including one at Skyline.
Once again several battles highlighted the action as the 4-Cyl boys put on a great show weekly. Behind the two front runners were Grumpy Adkins, Jeff Rankin, Frank Shamblin, George Klintworth, Bobby Collins, Donnie Bartlett, Nick Fitch, and Barry Kitts.
The family sport of racing begins at a young age and the youngsters put on a show. This week it was Ronnie Pickens again dominating in his #25 with good efforts from the rest of the pack, namely second place Kyle Bond. At the finish it was Kyle Bond, Zack Fox, Will Holland, and Mariah Miller.
Racer note: In a field of 123 cars, nine-time Skyline winner Danny Smith represented the speedway with a 3rd place finish in the C-main at the 48th Annual Knoxville Nationals. His finish was one short of a transfer to the B-main, but a great representation of Ohio outlaw sprint car racing.
Racing continues August 15 and August 22 on Fridays at Skyline. There will be no racing on August 29, then Skyline will make the shift to Saturdays with a big late model special on September 6 paying $3,000 to win.

Skyline Speedway Results August 1, 2008 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-On his way to becoming the winningest driver in the United States, Chillicothe, Ohio driver Danny Smith posted his 15th win nationwide and 9th overall at the historic Skyline Speedway battleground Friday night before another enthusiastic crowd. Jason Montgomery claimed the late model main after an early battle with Tony Roush, Shawn Jett claimed the $1,000 to win Pure Stock Invitational, Jeremy Blake mastered the modifieds, Tommy Adkins took the Four Cylinders, and Ronnie Pickens returned to victory lane in the Mini-Wedges.
In the Pure Stock Invitational, Shawn Jett, subbing for Brian Shaffer, bested a field of 28 cars to come from 12th place to win the $1,000 top prize. One thing is for sure. The Pure Stocks at Skyline always put on a show and with the addition of some heavy-hitters Friday, that race was no exception.
With an extra bag of cash dangling from Billy Jarrell's pocket, the Pure Stock boys gave it a little extra glitz and glamour. It was a wild-west of a shootout in the talented pure stock main as local racing veteran Danny Talbot took the early lead. Great racing highlighted the action back in the pack with continuous mini-battles among Danny Thomas, Mitch Gillian, Darrin Roush, and Ryan Wilson.
By virtue of his beautiful Monte Carlo kicking into high gear and Jett's heavy right foot, the number 44 began to pick off a gaggle of cars in the mid portion of the race. Aided by a couple yellows, Jett's charge amplified until he was finally able to slip by Talbott for the win. Mitch Gillian and Darin Roush had hefty advances into the top five, as Talbott began to fade, possibly after losing his four barrel linkage, yet able to hold on to a strong second.
Rounding out the top ten behind Jett were Talbott, Danny Thomas, Gillian, Roush, Wilson, George Klintworth, Randy Bohan, Shelly Powell, and Anthony Maynard.
Danny Smith's road to the Knoxville Nationals this year has been speckled with nine Skyline wins. Friday night's showdown was a repeat of his win two weeks ago in a photo-finish squeaker over Jimmy Nier, only this time the win came over another Jimmy--Jimmy Stinson.
Smith looked like he had the race well in hand, but lapped traffic and a persistent charge by Stinson made quite a race at the finish. Smith, slowed by a pair of lapped cars, opened the door for Stinson's cause as Stinson kept reeling in the veteran with Stinson close in tow. Stinson inched closer until he made a last lap bid that came up just inches short at the finish as Smith continued to tighten the reigns towards a national championship.
Adam Strausser completed a banner run with a solid third place finish after a race-long battle with Aaron Higgins and veteran Dave Dickson. The trio finished in that order, while another veteran Mark Imler continued his outstanding 2008 run in sixth. Rounding out the top ten were Josh Davis, Eddie Slone, Brian Benson, and hard-charging lady racer Brandy Bower. Local driver Eddie Miller made his debut in a sprint car.
It appeared for a while that it would be Tony Roush night at Skyline Speedway as the versatile racer tooled Ronnie Bond's number ten to a heat race win and led the early portions of the Late Model A-Main. With a solid run, Roush dominated early and no one was within a hen's throw. Then as the race progressed Roush's mount started to fade.
By this time former champ Jason Montgomery had become possessed in capturing first place. Montgomery worked every part of the drying Skyline clay, until finally he found a groove down low to launch his Rocket Chassis to victory.
Montgomery took the top spot on lap 18, then a few laps later veteran Dan Morrison slipped by Roush for second. If Roush had any disappointment, it was erased in the fact that he was able to hold off two heavy hitters in Harold Redman, Jr. and "No Fear" Chris Garnes. A lot of great racing highlighted the action in the pack where Dan Shrigley held off K.C. Burdette, Freddie Carpenter, Corey Conley, and Jeff Wood. Wood charged from the back of the pack after a B-main win to finish tenth.
Jeremy Blake is not slow by any means, but in a race of the Hare vs. the Turtle, Blake's smooth-fast, consistency allows him to sneak right into victory lane. Blake knows where to run and despite the hard-cranking, Hare-like charging of former AMRA Champ and defending Florida National champion Louis Krushansky, Blake was able to bring his B-4 home to victory lane.
Blake has been a winner in the Street Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Modifieds on multiple occasions this season. His craftiness once again put him in victory lane ahead of some of the best racers in the country. Ryan Mayle, Dal Cunningham, Jeff Wood, Mike McPherson, Gary Dalton, Jeremy Burwanger, Roy Roush, and Donnie Nething all engaged in fierce battles, but ended up in that running order behind 1-and-2 Blake and Krushansky at the finish.
In twelve tries either Tommy Adkins or Tim Christopher has won in the exciting four cylinder class. In Chapter 12 of the epic saga, Adkins came home the winner with Christopher at his heels in close tow. Battles throughout the pack made the racing interesting with Jeff Rankin anchoring down third with a great run. Rookie racer Frank Shamblin brought home his second top-five with a fourth, followed by Grumpy Adkins, Bobby Collins, Chris Lauer, George Klintworth, Nick Fitch, and Donnie Bartlett. This writer's niece Raquel Wolfe made her debut in a Four-Cylinder.
Adkins dedicated his win to former teacher and friend Hilton Wolfe, Jr. who is battling Cancer. Adkins joked as the pair got a victory lane photo, "He's also my driving coach!"
In another great battle of the youngsters, Ronnie Pickens bested Kyle Bond for the Mini-Wedge feature win. The hard-charging little guys and gals put on a great show with this week Pickens taking the win ahead of Bond, Mr. Consistency Zack Fox, Mariah Miller, Will Holland, Sydney Statts, and Sarah Klintworth.
Racing continues each and every Friday night at Skyline Speedway.
