Dohm Dominates Shutts Memorial

Skyline Speedway Results
STEWART, OHIO-Oh! How quickly the tides can change! This theme shared a common thread throughout the potent night of racing at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night in front of a packed house for the combined Jack Shutts/Greg Schilling Memorial racing events. The Murray City Bandit, Jeremy Berwanger staged a late race pass to claim the Octane AMRA Modified Greg Schilling Memorial over early leader Anthony Kinkade, while in the Jack Shutts Kryptonite AMRA Late Model main "The Showstopper" Tim Dohm, Cross Lanes, WV brought home the $3,000 win in an embattled run with Tyler Carpenter, Josh McGuire, and Chris Garnes.
Nearly 100 cars flooded the pit area and the stands were packed to watch good racing and to honor two of racing's fallen heroes. The stage was perfect as the 3/8 mile red clay oval was groomed to near perfection and continuously racey throughout the evening. The multi-groove action and star-studded field made Friday one of the year's greatest events with the Sara Bond "Big Three" and Harvest 50 yet to come in 2013.
In the Greg Schilling Memorial Octane AMRA Modified race, Dan Ebert from Lake Shore, Minnesota was the Hard Charger moving up eleven positions from 18th to 7th. Ebert earned an extra $100 from Poske's Performance Parts for his effort. Not only did Ebert make the long tow, but he also took the long road to the feature, finishing fourth in his heat, and having to race from 8th to second in the final B-main event. Ebert started scratch in the feature, one car ahead of 19th starter Travis Dickson, who won the silent auction to gain a spot in the Schilling Memorial.
Grayson, Kentucky's Josh McGuire had fast time in the late models with a 13:10 clocking and Kenny Johnson, Mineral Wells, WV had fast time in the modifieds with a 13:91. Fast time awards from C&S Racing Photo were presented, while Dave Millhone of Millhone Motorsports upped the modified ante with an extra $100 making it a $199 payoff for Johnson.
Wetzel's Collectibles sponsored both fast car Dash's with six lucky children selected via a ticket draw to draw starting positions for the top six late models. Donald Parry drew the number one pill for Josh McGuire. Other participants were Cameron Barr, Matt Hafner, Ryan Spear, Allie Hoosier, and Sydney Statts. As a result of winning the dash McGuire picked up an extra $100 and Parry won a Scooter. Matt Hafner won a Gary Gould t-shirt for Tyler Carpenter's second place finish.
Six star-studded heat races helped whittle the 52-car modified field down to the respective 18 starters--plus one. Four of the six heat races were action packed , down to the wire qualifiers.
At the start of the AMRA Octane main event Kinkade's 144 jumped into the early lead, however, Kinkade's rear quarters were heat-tempered from the fire-breathing dragons grinding on his rear bumper. Berwanger was there every inch of the way waiting for the right moment, while Kenny Johnson battled Kevin Moorehouse and Jessie Wisecarver for third.
Early in the race Mike McPherson and Johnson made contact, sending both nearly out of control, but quick thinking by both veterans righted their cars without incident.
A "Racey" track provided fast low, middle, and high groove racing. The first caution did not fly until eight laps of the thirty-lapper were in the books. Tanner Wilson made contact with Jesse Hartman and collected Nick Corbitt as well. Wilson was whistled for the caution.
As the race restarted all eyes were on the Kinkade/Berwanger battle. Berwanger and Kinkade engaged in a friendly round of multi-lap bumper tag. Berwanger pulled alongside Kinkade numerous times but couldn't quite ride out the momentum.
Great racing from number one to 16 continued as Kenny Johnson meticulously climbed back into the mix. Johnson went to the high-side and rode a wave of momentum off turn two in passing both leaders to take the lead. Johnson's turn four exit was not as memorable.
A lapped car collected Johnson, spawning a melee that eliminated Jarrad Willis on the 24th circuit and also collected Jessie Wisecarver. Kinkade reverted back to the lead, while Berwanger maintained second. Johnson had another good start, but again a caution voided his efforts.
Rick Aukland was now in the hunt after a race-long battle with Moorehouse, Wisecarver, Andy Bond and Roy Roush.
On the 25th round, Berwanger went to the high side, then after luring Kinkade up a groove made a cross-over move to the bottom where Kinkade slammed the door shut. Berwanger again went to the top and stayed there where he made the race-winning pass of Kinkade to collect the $1,699 win plus the Phantam Race Gear $500 Gift Certificate.
"I was certain I had a better car than him (Kinkade), but he was fast where he needed to be," said Berwanger. "I didn't want to get out of my groove and get freight-trained, so I rode it out. When I saw Kenny (Johnson) blow by us on the high side, I knew I had to get there (to the high groove) and that was the key to the win."
The win was the second in a row for the defending Skyline Speedway champion. Kinkade came home a disappointing second, saying "I thought we had it. We went so far with the lead, I thought we had it, but Jeremy just had a little more than I did off the top."
Aukland bagged Johnson for third. Fifth through tenth were Kevin Morehouse, Roy Roush, Dan Ebert, Andy Bond, Mike McPherson, and J.P. Roberts. Doug Adkins was disqualified after winning the fifth heat for not crossing the scales, and Aukland was DQ'd in the dash, but was stilled scored sixth and maintaining his feature spot after passing tech through his qualifying heat.
Heats went to Aukland, Moorehouse, Wisecarver, Berwanger, McPherson, and Kinkade who also brought home the dash win! Kinkade donated his $99 for winning the dash back to the Schilling Fund. B-Main winners were Doug Henry, Nick Corbitt, and Chris Stotts who made a last lap pass for the win.
Tyler Carpenter, Parkersburg, WV was the class of the Kryptonite AMRA Late Model field--that is, for much of 22 laps. Carpenter led the first six laps after getting the jump on pole-sitter Josh McGuire. Chris Garnes shuffled McGuire back another notch while Chris Carpenter took over fourth.
It seemed like all the cars were jockeying for position througout the pack. Carpenter survived spins from Jason Gillian and Zach Dohm, but on the sixth lap Garnes smoked Carpenter high against the turn two wall. After a lap eight spin for Steve Bigley, Carpenter got a good restart and overtook Garnes for the lead. All the while McGuire was within a car length, trying to figure out the tacky Skyline surface.
Garnes again went to the high side and took command for laps 18, 19, and 20. Meanwhile, Carpenter rode the inside rail. With a soft rear spring set up, Carpenter lifted his left front high in to the air, while blitzing around the inside. Dohm had since moved into fourth and engaged in a torrid dual with McGuire.
On lap 23 Carpenter got about 3 feet too low and snagged an infield uke tire and flipped while in the lead. The incident collected Tim Dohm and tore the right rear portion of his spoiler off. With the red waving, fans and Carpenter stood in awe. Garnes assumed the lead, but when the green was ready to wave at restart, Garnes went pitside with mechanical woes. His misfortune was a blessing for Dohm who had just secured third from McGuire.
Dohm held of McGuire the last eight laps despite missing much of his rear air foil. Dohm charged on to victory and the $3,000 Jack Shutts Memorial win.
"This track was racey all over tonight," said Dohm. "Perhaps the best I've seen it. The straights were tacky and you could really drive it in hard. But the main thing is I think the right rear tire finally kicked in for me. It got some heat in it and the car just really took off."
McGuire pulled into victory lane with a flat tire in second and Carpenter brought home third. Rounding out the top ten were Ralph Withem, KC Burdette, Travis Brookover, Freddie Carpenter, Zach Dohm, Dan Morrison, and Chris Garnes.
Heats went to Zach Dohm, Colten Burdette, and veteran Larry Bond, while Fast Freddie Carpenter took the B-main win.
In the Jack Shutts Memorial Kryptonite AMRA Late Model race, Freddie Carpenter was the hard charger moving up nine positions from 16th to 7th.
The Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges ran two features. Austin Washburn took the first win and Zach Carr claimed the second. Each feature was dedicated to Jack Shutts and Greg Schilling.
Skyline is off Aug. 2 and Aug. 9 due to the Athens County Fair. Racing will resume August 16 and August 23.

Berwanger 2-for-2 At Skyline
Crabtree Cruises to Outlaw Win/Burdette Bests Top LM Field

Skyline Speedway Results            Aug. 16, 2013     FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-The Frankland  Racing Kids Autograph Night and Poske's Performance Parts Bicycle Racing night proved to be a huge, huge success at Skyline Speedway Friday night August 16. In the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410 sprints young gun Kory Crabtree won his fifth feature in four weeks, including a string of two back-to-back feature wins. As an added bonus Kory got to race with his dad Keith Crabtree who came out of retirement to drive Greg Mitchell's 002 car.
                In the Kryptonite AMRA Late Model main K.C. Burdette claimed the win by inches over Ronnie Mayle, while Jeremy Berwanger, the Murray City Bandit, stole the show and the top prize in the AMRA Octane Race Products Modified A-main. 
                It was great to see all the kids in attendance and 17 youngsters participate in the bicycle racing. Winners earned $20, $10, and $5 respectively in  each of the three divisions.  Additionally, Frankland Racing Autograph night was a huge success as well as the Dave Poske-Billy Jarrell Bicycle racing challenge, won by Dave Poske of Poske's Performance Parts.  Brian Willard picked Poske to win and as a result the proceeds of a cash drawing went to Alexander High School in the name of Willard, who also won a free Pit Pass to the Sarah Bond Big Three, next weekend August 23.
                Fifteen kids won Walmart Gift cards Totalling $300 and two children won bicycles provided by Andre Layfield Racing and John Church Racing.  Additionally, every child in attendance received a bag full of school supplies, much of which was provided by the race teams.  Special thanks was extended to the drivers, Tom and Pam Lemon, Billy Jarrell, and Skyline Speedway.
                In the Late Model A-main Racin' Jason Montgomery was looking for the clean sweep after a hard-earned heat win over K.C. Burdette.  Montgomery led from the onset as the battle touted between he and outside pole-sitter Chris Garnes never materialized.  Burdette jumped into second with Ronnie Mayle in tow.
                Montgomery was dogged every inch of the way by Burdette.  While Burdette never quite overtook Montgomery, he was  along side the veteran much of the way. Mayle then nearly passed Burdette with the race developing into a 3-way battle.
                On the 13th circuit, Montgomery's suspension gave out and his car limped to a stop, giving Burdette the lead.  Burdette survived several early challenges from Mayle, who at one point was overtaken by Garnes.  Then Burdette started to stretch out his lead.
                Meanwhile, Tyler Carpenter had zoomed from 15th to fifth and at one point it was a Carpenter Clan family reunion for 4th, 5th, and 6th among Chris, Tyler, and Freddie Carpenter.  Both Tyler and Freddie faded in the last five laps giving way to hard charging Mike Smith and Andy Bond.
                As the race wound down it appeared Burdette would coast to victory, but during the last three laps Mayle reeled Burdette in and nearly pulled off the comeback win, narrowly missing the win by inches at the finish.  Behind Burdette's McDonald Race Engines/Graham Excavating/Burdette Construction Rayburn rounding out the top ten were Mayle, Chris Garnes, Chris Carpenter, Mike Smith, Andy Bond, Tyler Carpenter, Freddie Carpenter, Travis Brookover, and Ralph Withem.
                In the Kryptonite AMRA Late Models, Tyler Carpenter and Ralph Withem were the Hard Chargers each moving up eight positions.  Carpenter went from 15th to 7th and Withem went from 18th to 10th.
                The Octane AMRA Modifieds took the same script from Late Model A-main.  On the initial start polesitter Jarrod Willis was called for jumping and sent to the tail.  Mike McPherson inherited the pole and zoomed to an immediate lead over Jeremy Berwanger and Andy Bond.  Moments later Berwanger and Bond made contact and spun, collecting four other cars in the process.  Bond was whistled for the caution.
                McPherson started to distance himself from the field as the gaggle of cars approached lapped traffic.  Berwanger lurked in second with Jeremy Blake duking it out with youngster Kyle Bond.  Bond was impressive in his heat and when all was said and done, he withstood Blake's pressure for position in the feature.
                A lapped car spun in front of McPherson who had no place to go and plowed into the spinning comrad, where he emerged with a flat tire and lost hopes of victory on lap seven.  For the latter portion of the race it was the Killer B's of Berwanger, Bond, and Blake putting on a show. 
                Other noteworthy performances came from Gary Gould, who continued his string of strong Skyline runs, a bid that earned him hard-charger.  In the AMRA Octane Modifieds Gould was the hard charger in an impressive 16th to 5th place run. Jarrod Willis, who had early gone to the tail fought back to eighth spot.  Brad Willis and Nick Carr climbed into the top ten with credible runs.
                Berwanger went on to the big victory ahead of Bond, Blake, Ronnie Mayle, Gary Gould, Robert Garnes, Rick Venham, Jr., Jerrod Willis, Brad Willis, and Nick Carr.
                In the OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars, Jim Neir, Dave Dickson, and Brian Benson were the Hard Chargers each moving up three positions. Neir went from 5th to 2nd, Dickson went from 11th to 8th, and Benson went from 14th to 11th.
                Aaron Higgins took the initial lead, but an early bobble gave Kory Crabtree the room he needed for the pass and number one spot.  Crabtree was chased frantically by Jimmy Nier and Jimmy Stinson, who each fought past Higgins for a run at the top three.
                As Crabtree got into traffic, Nier quickly closed the gap and at one point came within a car length of the leader before scrubbing off some speed.  Nier came back for another bid at first, but Crabtree withstood the pressure.
                After a late race caution, Crabtree had free reign of the track and blitzed on to the uncontested win aboard his B & P Miller/Milhone Motorsports Maxim powered by Oaks Machine Racing Engines.  Behind second place Nier were  Aaron Higgins, Nathan Skaggs, Jimmy Stinson, Ryan Broughton, Mark Imler, Dave Dickson, Eddy Slone, and Josh Davis.
                Said Crabtree, "I just tried to be cool, really cool.  The throttle was stuck and I just had to stay composed and hang on.  It got a little hectic in traffic, but in the open track the car was super fast."
                Skyline will host the Sarah Bond Big Three Friday, August 23 paying  $2,000 to win and $200 to start in all Three Classes ! Sprints, Late Models, Modifieds! Come enjoy the fun and help us honor one of racing's all time great ladies -- Sarah Bond ! Bring a friend or two and help Skyline make this a big night for Ronnie Bond and the Bond Family !

SKYLINE WINS TO BERWANGER, CARPENTER !
 FRITTER AND CARR RULE JULY 12, 2013

Skyline Speedway Results
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-An unexpected storm hit just about everywhere, but Skyline Speedway. Creating their own storms with whirlwind action were 60 high quality racers that saw two last-to-first runs in the Octane Modified heats and exciting features in all divisions. Tyler Carpenter, Parkersburg, WV made it a clean sweep in the Kryptonite AMRA Late Models, setting fast time, and winning the heat and features. Jeremy Berwanger, the "Murry City Bandit", stole the show in the Octane AMRA Modifieds with a potent 15th to first place run, while Tracy Fritter, Zanesville, Ohio won the Mod Lites, and Zach Carr won the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.
The Octane Modifieds produced some of the best racing of the night with two last-to-first winners in Roy Roush and Kenny Johnson. Larry Holbrook took the third heat race after a battle with Andy Bond.
Berwanger set the stage for a dramatic night after suffering suspension damage in the heat race and having to transfer by virtue of winning the "B" Main. Berwanger as a result started fifteenth when the green flag flew, which resulted in him earning hard charger honors moving up fourteen positions from 15th to 1st.
After three tries to get the Octane main underway the early battle in the modifieds saw Roy Roush and Kenny Johnson engaged in a battle royal. J.P. Roberts also joined the frey and on several occasions got by Johnson for second. Roush led the first ten circuits, mostly flanked by the high flying Johnson with Roberts in the wake.
By lap seven Berwanger had moved up to seventh place. Johnson took the lead on the 11th circuit and by now Robert "Booger" Garnes had blitzed from 13th to third. Garnes, Roberts, Andy Bond and Berwanger had engaged in a close fight for position.
Roush and Garnes collided in a racing incident that sent Roush toward the outside wall on the back chute. Roush recovered by found himself in fourth. Berwanger, the defending Skyline champ, was on a mission blasting around the outside lane like a Flying Wallenda.
Berwanger bagged Johnson on the 14th round and despite tries from Johnson and Roush that made it close at the end, the "Murray City Bandit" roared on to the win. Nick Corbitt and Kyle Bond also had good runs into the top ten.
Rounding out the top ten were Berwanger, Johnson, Roush, Robert Garnes, Nick Corbitt, J.P. Roberts, Kyle Bond, Casey Fritz, Nick Carr, and Tyler Hendrix.
The Late Model feature was equally impressive. Tyler Carpenter shot into the early lead as Chris Garnes' mount seemed to stumble on the start. Carpenter raced to about a ten car length lead, but by lap six was approaching heavy lapped traffic. Garnes had begun to reel him back in when the yellow flew for a collision that collected Austin Eddy, Larry Bond and Tony Roush.
On the restart Carpenter again took the lead, but a great battle had begun. Garnes and Carpenter ran side-by-side with Garnes narrowly leading laps seven and eight. Still the fight continued with Fast Freddie Carpenter, Ronnie Mayle, Andy Bond, and Travis Brookover climbing into the hunt.
Garnes and Carpenter continued to dual, but by lap 14 Andy Bond had joined the battle. Freddie Carpenter dropped out with mechanical woes leaving Tyler to defend the family name. Garnes bored it into turn one on the 19th circuit, only to get airborne. Despite a rough landing, Garnes stormed off the turn to again challenge Garnes, but a left rear tire went flat forcing Garnes into a spin directly in front of the field.
All ended well, but Garnes was done for the night, leaving the chase to Bond who fell short by a car length at the finish. Mayle was also within a couple car lengths coming off turn four for a great finish. In the Kryptonite AMRA Late Models, Tyler French was the Hard Charger moving up eight positions from 14th to 6th. John Church also had a great run into the top ten.
At one point both Ralph Withem and Brookover had challenged for third ahead of Mayle, but the barnstorming Mayle again found his rhythym and stymied that duo's challenges.
Rounding out the top ten behind Carpenter were Andy Bond, Ronnie Mayle, Travis Brookover, Ralph Withem, Tyler French, Nick Dohm, John Church Chris Garnes, and Steve Bigley.
Tracy Fritter ran into the next county with a sizeable win over Anthony Helms, Andrew Hart, and Randy Kearns i the Mod Lite Feature. Fritter raced on to the win.
Zach Carr blitzed to yet another Mike's Auto Body Mini Wedge main over Hunter Krivesti, Tanner Martin, Aiden Powell, and Kasey Rankin.
Skyline hosts a $2,000 to win Sprint Special Friday, July 19 then the next week hosts the $3,000 to win Jack Shutts Memorial for Late Models. On the same racing card is the Greg Schilling Memorial for the Octane Modifieds paying $1,699 to win of a whopping $17,000 purse.

McGuire McFast, Johnson Jubilant, and Myers Masters Skyline Main

June 21, 2013

Skyline Speedway Results  
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Kenny Johnson, Mineral Wells, West Virginia remained a perfect 5-for-5 in the Octane AMRA Modifieds, and in the companion Kryptonite AMRA Late Models Josh McGuire has gone 2-for-2 as both veterans picked up feature wins at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night. Second generation driver Chris Myers, Caldwell, Ohio got the jump on the field and led every lap to win his first-ever Skyline Speedway A-main in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410 sprint division, while Austin Washburn won the Mike's Auto Body Mini-wedge main.
           The wins were worth $1,500 to both McGuire and Myers. Johnson brought home $500 for his effort.
Nine exciting heat races--three of which came down to last lap passes-- set the stage for the trio of A-mains. Preliminary events had the crowd cheering and on its feet a good deal of the time, especially in hard-fought wins from Jason Montgomery in the Late Models and Kenny Johnson in the Modifieds.
           Aaron Higgins and Wayne McPeek set the stage for the 410 sprint car main, but when Higgins' mount wheelie-hopped three times at the drop of the green, young Chris Myers shot into the lead and led every lap to claim his first Skyline A-main. Myers had his work cut out for him , however, as McPeek dogged the masterful youth much of the first ten laps.
           McPeek actually went ahead on several different occasions in the turns, but Myers rode the momentum down the back chute to lead each lap at the start-finish line. McPeek became entangled in a duel with Kory Crabtree, who just laps later would chase down Myers and make a bid at the lead.
On lap five Brian Benson tangled with another car and did a slow roll over to bring out the red. Benson was ok, but done for the evening.That came after Jimmy Stinson did a 360 in front of the pack, but managed to avoid contact and kept his mount rolling.
           Crabtree's bid for the lead fizzled somewhat when Ryan Broughton came on strong at the finish and pre-occupied the charging Crabtree. McPeek faded to fourth, while Dave Dickson was consistently strong and brought home fifth. Broughton claimed third in a good, solid run.
           The Hard Charger in the Sprints was Wes McGlumphy moving up ten positions from 16th to 6th. McGlumphy picked off car after car, but was slowed when he came upon the defending OVSCA champ Dickson. Behind Dickson in the top ten were McGlumphy, Aaron Higgins, Nathan Skaggs, Greg Mitchell, and Jimmy Stinson.
           Myers brought home the popular win in the Triple X "XXX" Chassis/Gaerte Engine Powered #25. The win was his second of the year in the OVSCA.
Kenny Johnson just keeps getting the job done, but each time it gets a little tougher. The defending AMRA champion had won four straight at Skyline, but Friday's bout saw Jeremy Berwanger dog Johnson every inch of the way. Berwanger clung to Johnson as if tied to his bumper with a rope.
           Despite Berwanger's persistence, Johnson again proved to be the class of the field. In the first few circuits, Mike McPherson challenged Johnson until Berwanger rooted his way to the runner-up slot. McPherson maintained a great run, but had to hold off the efforts of Jeremy Blake, Kyle Bond, and Derrick Smith. Blake was on the upswing, but McPherson repelled the challenges, while Bond and Smith fought hard for position.
           Behind 4th place Blake were Bond, Derrick Smith, Aaron Pendleton, Mark Dickson, Travis Dickson, and Jason Brooks. The Hard Charger in the Modifieds was Jason Brookover moving up six positions from 17th to 11th.
           McGuire, Conley, Montgomery, Garnes. With names like that, everyone expected an old-fashioned John Wayne-styled shootout. The competition shot only blanks as the feature never lived up to expectations. Garnes left early with engine problems and no one else had anything for the winner.
           Josh McGuire, Grayson, Kentucky, again was the class of the field, fending off challenges from Fast Freddie Carpenter then waltzing off into the sunset and through lapped traffic for a resounding win. Carpenter anchored second, but after three laps couldn't keep pace with the eventual winner.
           Carpenter and Jason Montgomery engaged in a torrid skirmish, but as Delmas Conley closed the gap on Montgomery, Carpenter separated himself from the pair. With McGuire securely out front, the battle for second again tightened into a three way dual among Carpenter, Montgomery, and Conley.
           Finishing 5th through tenth were Ralph Withem, Nick Dohm, KC Burdette, Steve Bigley, Jeremy Blake, and Derek Doll. Withem had a great run toward the front and had nearly caught the earlier mentioned trio. Dohm drove a consistent race as did K-C Burdette.
           The Hard Chargers in the Late Models were Ralph Withem and Andy Bond both moving up five positions; Withem from 10th to 5th and Bond from 17th to 12th.
           Next weekend June 28-29th, the 5th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial race, the 5th Annual Dan Reno Memorial Race, and the Ohio Valley Speedway Topless Modified Special make up what could be the biggest open wheel Modified weekend in the nation. Skyline will host the first leg of a power-packed Octane AMRA weekend June 28 with a $17,000 purse and $1,699-to-win Greg Schilling Memorial, while two biggies are slated for AMRA turf on Saturday. Sprints and Late Models are also on the racing card at Skyline.
           Saturday, June 29 Jackson County Speedway in Jackson, Ohio hosts the Dan Reno Memorial and the same night Ohio Valley hosts its $1,200 to win Topless OCTANE Special. Originally a Street Stock event, The Reno Memorial at Jackson County Speedway will now be run as an Octane Modified Invitational race paying $2,222 to win and $222 to start with a $9,000 purse.
           Autograph night is July 19th and the Jack Shutts Memorial Late Model Race is July 26th at Skyline.

Skyline Speedway Results   June 14, 2013

Garnes, Nier Repeat

Johnson Perfect 4-for-4


By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Batting .400 in Major League Baseball will get you a million dollar contract. In auto racing, posting a .400 average makes you an icon, but perfection is nearly non-existent. Kenny Johnson, Mineral Wells, West Virginia has gone 4-for-4 in the Octane Race Products AMRA Modified division after Friday night's win at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. The Kryptonite AMRA Late Model show was a barnburner for winner Chris Garnes, Evans, WV, who posted the win over Fast Freddie Carpenter; while Jimmy Nier, Piketon, Ohio claimed his second Skyline win of the year in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association A-main. Adam Douglas won the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.
        In the wake of the tragic fatal accident of NASCAR and World of Outlaw star Jason Leffler, sprint car stat Danny Smith sold his shirts and donated not just the proceeds but the entire amount of sales totaling $2,159 to Charlie Leffler, the five year old son of Jason Leffler. The gesture was a first class act from a true champion in Danny and Stephanie Smith.
       Three exciting heat races set the stage for the 25-lap Kryptonite LM A-main, pitting fast qualifier Fast Freddie Carpenter on the pole and 3-time defending champ Chris Garnes on the outside pole. Third heat winner Steve Bigley started third. Garnes got the jump, but was immediately challenged by Carpenter, who raced Garnes tooth-and-nail every inch of the 25 laps. The race was epic in every way. Although racers back in the pack fought for position, all eyes were on the top spot. Garnes was locked into a mid-high groove while Carpenter whizzed around the inside. In the turns Carpenter would edge by the defending champ, but Garnes' momentum gave him a small edge upon turn exits. Following a restart, Garnes sought to seal off the inside and move to the bottom with                Carpenter zooming to the top. Side by side for the duration of the race, Carpenter led lap 16 only to have Garnes strike back and retake the lead and win by a car length at the finish.
      Travis Brookover drove a steady race to third and in the first seven laps Brookover was in the fray with Carpenter and Garnes. Ralph Withem caught Brookover at the finish, but settled for fourth. Withem won a race-long battle with Derek Doll, Steve Bigley, and Dan Morrison for that spot, while Randy Armes, Pete Crum, and Bob Adams, Jr. each ran hard-fought races. Bigley was shuffled back to 9th at the finish.
      Behind Garnes in the top ten were Freddie Carpenter, Travis Brookover, Ralph Withem, Derek Doll, Dan Morrison, Randy Armes, Steve Bigley, Pete Crum, and Bob Adams, Jr. The hard chargers were Randy Armes and Jeremy Blake each moving up three positions; Armes from 10th to 7th and Blake from 17th to 14th.
      The win was Garnes's second win of the season. The race was run in 8 minutes and 18 seconds, including one caution flag.
      Veteran driver "No Fear" Jimmy Nier claimed his second win of the season in the OVSCA 410 Sprint main. Nier sat on the outside pole as second heat winner alongside first heat winner Mark Imler. Imler spun the wheels in the middle of the turn and collected the cars of Lance Webb, Kory Crabtree, Dave Dickson, and Andre Layfield. Crabtree, Dickson, and Layfield went to the tail. That set the stage for some high-speed adrenaline rushes for the fans.
      On the restart Wes McGlumphy had the pole, but Nier throttle up as McGlumphy appeared to ring his tires. Ryan Broughton momentarily took the lead, but that was as close as anyone came to the barnstorming Nier. Nier slowly pulled away and continued to stretch his lead to the finish.
Young drivers Broughton and Nathan Skaggs held off the challenges of Danny Smith in a run for the top three.           After a tail restart, Layfield had worked his way to a top five only to fade to seventh behind a recovering McGlumphy and Josh Davis. Wayne McPeek had a great run going from 16th to 6th, but blew a tire on the 23rd circuit. Jimmy Stinson had a great run going as well, but looped it on the do-over of the 23rd circuit and went pitside.
      McGlumphy restarted well to move up two spots, while another hard-charge Kory Crabtree sliced-and-diced to a top ten ahead of veterans Keith Baxter and Dave Dickson. In the Sprints the hard charger was Kory Crabtree moving up nine positions from 17th to 8th. Dickson moved up from 18th to tenth and Layfield 15th to 7th.
During hot laps, Aaron Higgins jumped the cushion and flipped hard numerous times off the backstretch and out of the ball park in turn three. Higgins was momentarily shaken, but uninjured
      Rounding out the top ten behind Nier were Broughton, Nathan Skaggs, Danny Smith, Wes McGlumphy, Josh Davis, Andre Layfield, Kory Crabtree, Keith Baxter, and Dave Dickson.
Kenny Johnson is perfect ! At least at Skyline Speedway in 2013. The veteran and defending champion endured 14 laps of heavy resistance from J.P. Roberts. Reflective of the late Model main, the Octane Race Products Modified feature looked to follow the same script.
      Roberts, however, bobbled once and that cost him a shot at the roses. Jeremy Berwanger, the "Murray City Bandit" took over second and raced through traffic with Johnson for the next five laps, only to have a charging Robbie Evans take the runner-up slot.
      Gary Gould continued his string of good runs, anchoring down fourth after fending off a quartet of challenges from four different drivers. About midway through the race, John Burdette sat up on the wheel and went hammer down, one of only a handful of cars that wondered off the bottom like Johnson. Burdette picked off a car a lap until Gould held off the veteran at the start-finish line for fourth.
      Ultimately, Johnson blitzed to his fourth Skyline win of the year and 10th overall.
Roberts recovered to finish sixth ahead of Roberts, Andy Bond, Mike McPherson, Robert Garnes, and Tyler Evans. The top five were Johnson, Evans, Berwanger, Gould, and Burdette, the hard charger in a 12th to 5th place run.
      Next week is Kids Goldrush week, while June 28th is the 5th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial paying a $17,000 purse for AMRA Octane Modifieds.

McGuire Skyline Master    June 7, 2013
Johnson Perfect 3-for-3, Fritter Takes First Win!

By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-"Blue Moon of Kentucky Keep on Shinin' !" is the retro version of the tune Josh McGuire, Grayson, Kentucky, was singing en route to what was reported to be his 13th Skyline Speedway win in the Kryptonite AMRA Late Models Friday night at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. "Blue #41 from Kentucky Keep on Hummin' !" was the tune the Bluegrass master was fiddling once he took the lead from Wheelersburg's Rod Conley on the second lap of the 25-lap $1,500 to win A-main.
Kenny Johnson, Mineral Wells, West Virginia chanted a similar victory tune in the Octane Race Products AMRA Modified A-Main, going 3-for-3 for his third consecutive Skyline win in 2013 and 7th of the season. Tracy Fritter, Zanesville, Ohio claimed the exciting Mod Lite portion of the program, and Zach Carr claimed his second Mini-Wedge main.

Racing resumes June 14 with Kryptonite AMRA Late Models, Octane AMRA Modifieds, OVSCA 410 Outlaw Sprints, and Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges. Coming June 28th is the Greg Schilling Memorial AMRA Modified bash.
      The 25-lap Late Model main pitted some of the best regional drivers against several nationally recognized names. McGuire and Rod "Hot Rod" Conley, defending ADRA champion, paced the field to Mike Haught's green flag. In the wake were "Fast Freddie" Carpenter, Fast timer Joe Ramey, Chris Garnes, Travis Brookover, and Daniel Hill among others.
      McGuire got a slight jump, but Conley rode the momentum off turn two to lead lap one. McGuire rode the inside rail to root Conley off the bottom and despite a constant effort, McGuire was as they say "off to the races". In smooth, fast--actually "bad fast"- McGuire fashion, the veteran chauffer waltzed through traffic past six cars to an insurmountable lead.
      A good crowd wasn't let-down, however, as action back through the pack was torrid on the smooth 3/8 mile red clay oval. Carpenter chased down Conley; and as that battle occupied the duo, Travis Brookover began to sneak into the mix for a three-way slugfest. At one point Brookover actually took over third and was close to second only to have Carpenter sweep past both Brookover and Conley on the high side.
      Brookover faded as Conley and Carpenter battled side-by-side for the middle 12 laps. A caution was whistled against K-C Burdette for making contact with the spinning Joe Ramey. That yellow tightened the second place battle even more with Conley finally taking over the position after a wheel banging "that's racing" tango in turn three.
      Action persisted throughout the pack as McGuire blasted away from the rest of the field. Garnes began to run down Brookover. They continued to dual to the checkered where Garnes won that encounter by a nose. In the Late Models, Andy Bond and Jeremy Blake were the hard chargers with each moving up four positions; Bond from 12th to 8th and Blake from 17th to 13th. Pete Crum had another smooth consistent run into the top ten along with Tony Roush.
      Rounding out the top ten behind McGuire were Conley, Freddie Carpenter, Chris Garnes, Travis Brookover, Daniel Hill, Steve Bigley, Andy Bond, Pete Crum, and Tony Roush.
      Heat winners were Freddie Carpenter, Rod Conley, McGuire and Dan Morrison, who took the B-main.
      In the Octane AMRA Modifieds, Kenny Johnson proved why he has been a five-time AMRA champion. Johnson leaped ahead of James Dennis on the start, but Robert "Booger" Garnes dove low under Johnson in a fight for first. Johnson drove into three hard and led the first swing in what became a green-to-checkered victory for the defending AMRA champ.
      As Johnson drove off into the sunset, Garnes had to defend second against nearly everyone else in the line-up. Garnes held second until the 17th circuit after fighting most the race with Mike McPherson, Gary Gould, and Andy Bond. That trio went three-wide several laps, but each time Garnes anchored the two-hole.
On lap 14, Bond secured third over McPherson then went to work on Garnes. Finally, on the 17th round Bond squeaked by. Jeremy Berwanger stormed up through the pack from 10th and bid for a top five. Meanwhile, Jesse Rupe, the defending AMRA "Rookie of the Year" posted another good run himself. Bond, Berwanger, and Rupe were the hard chargers with each moving up five positions; Bond from 7th to 2nd, Berwanger from 10th to 5th, and Rupe from 14th to 9th.
      McPherson stalled Berwanger's drive, while Gould who had a great start faded along with Dennis. Shawn Donahue and Rupe both had great charges toward the top ten. Behind Johnson were Bond, Robert Garnes, Mike McPherson, Jeremy Berwanger, Jeremy Blake, Gary Gould, Jerrod Willis, Jesse Rupe, and James Dennis.
      Heat winners were Johnson, Dennis and Garnes.
Tracy Fritter dominated the Mod Lite Main. Mitch Ward anchored second most of the race but ended up losing a bout with Jeff Fornash at the finish after a lap 17 restart. Randy Kerns and Tyler Riggs had good runs early, but later suspension parts let go on Kerns' machine. Behind the barn-storming Fritter were Fornash, Mitch Ward, Matt Ward, Tyler Riggs, Andrew Hart, Nathan Casto, Randy Kerns, Matt Hall, and Duane Durst. After an early spin Matt Ward had a great run into the top five from the tail.
     Zach Carr won his second Skyline feature with an impressive run over Austin Washburn, Tanner Martin, Kasey Rankin, Kalista Barnes, Evan McPherson, and Ryan Bigley in the mini-wedges.

Greg Schilling Memorial June 28th at Skyline

Over $17,000 purse/ $1,699 to win! $199 to start!

Schilling 2013

RACINE,OHIO-The 5th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial race, again racing under the banner of the American Motor Racing Association, will be held Friday, June 28th at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio. Race organizers are looking forward to this historic $17,000 purse for the Octane AMRA Modifieds.  Joining the Octane Modifieds on the race card will be the Kryptonite AMRA Late Models and Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association Sprint Cars.

Race organizers and talented AMRA Veterans Mike McPherson and Kenny Johnson said "This race is about a great friend and all the good that he stood for. Greg Schilling was a great person and a great racer. We would like to thank Billy Jarrell at Skyline for hosting this event and for contributing so much to a great cause."

Greg Schilling was one of the early young-guns in the Ohio Valley area when IMCA E-Mods migrated to the Ohio Valley from the Midwest. Greg was a hard-charger and won many races in the Ohio Valley area. Additionally, he later extended his fine talents to the AMRA circuit. Friends, racers, and sponsors have all come together in a big way to honor Greg's legacy.

              The Greg Schilling Memorial Fund has been established to help families in the Beverly/Waterford area, Schilling's hometown. In 2003, Greg Schilling was diagnosed with colon cancer. He passed away on November 25, 2008. A memorial fund was started in memory of Greg. As this fund grows, money is put back into the community to help individuals or families who are in need of financial assistance. Each year at least one award is also given to a male and a female graduate from Fort Frye and Waterford High Schools in the form of an academic scholarship.

To date, $8,000 has been donated in scholarships to graduating seniors.

In addition to the scholarships, the fund also assists individuals or families that have an illness or a life-altering event that requires financial assistance. To date, over $13,000 has been given to individuals and families facing tragedies in life.

The purse for the event parallels a full-blown late model pay-off, featuring nearly $7,500 for the first five positions, The payoff is still the same with 19 cars starting according to one of the organizers. Payoff: 1-$1699, 2-$1599, 3-$1499, 4-$1399, 5-$1299, $799 for tenth, $299 for 15th, and $199 to start. The "99" at the end of each pay-off position is in honor of Schilling's number 99.

The inaugural winner was Chris Stotts, Shade, Ohio , the second annual event went to Rick Aukland of Zanesville, Ohio and Crooksville, Ohio's Matt Holcomb claimed the 2011 event.

Last year the race prevailed with 100 cars in the pits with a nice crowd and warm-tropical weather setting the back-drop.  The race unfolded as another wonderful tribute for the 4th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio. The headlining Schilling Memorial was a highly contested 30-lapper that saw local hotshoe Roy Roush, Guysville, Ohio claim the biggest win of his career in the $1,699 to win Malta AMRA Road Warrior A-main.

Rounding out the top ten were Roy Roush, Kenny Johnson, Mike McPherson, Jeremy Berwanger, Chris Stotts, Jesse Wisecarver, Jason Brookover, Rick Auckland, Kevin Morehouse, and Tyler Carpenter.

         As always the AMRA wishes to invite drivers coming into the area to stop off at a Saturday night AMRA track and notes that Ohio Valley Speedway will be holding its Topless Modifed special June 29 paying $1,200 to win .

Skyline Speedway Results    May 24, 2013                                          FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Nier, Montgomery, Johnson Claim Wins
 
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway officially kicked off the Memorial Day weekend Friday, May 24 with another exciting night of racing in three classes.  Jimmy Nier, Piketon, Ohio claimed the $1,500 win in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410 A-main, Racin' Jason Montgomery, Jackson, Ohio claimed the Kryptonite AMRA Late Model main, and Kenny Johnson went 2-for-2 for the season with a clean sweep in the Octane AMRA Modifieds. Zach Carr won his second consecutive Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.
           In the OVSCA Sprint main Jimmy Nier went green-to-checkered for the win, but not without a fight.  Dave Dickson and Jimmy Stinson, respectively the OVSCA and Skyline 2012 champions marched 1-2-3 in close order in the early portions of the race.  Dickson and Stinson fought side-by-side, then Dickson broke free to chase down Nier.
            Dickson remained close for several laps, but Nier began to stretch it out.  Following a caution for Wes McGlumphy Dickson restarted on Nier's tail.  Dickson again lurked in the wake, but Nier eventually stretched it out for a convincing win.
          From lap 14 through 25 Kory Crabtree and Stinson literally went side-by-side.  Crabtree would edge by in the turns, but Stinson carried the momentum in the run off the turns.  Stinson won the battle for position with Crabtree settling in ahead of his earlier victim Josh Davis who nailed down fifth.
               The Hard Charger in the Sprints was Wayne McPeek moving up seven positions from 15th to 8th.  Rounding out the top ten behind Nier were Nier, Dickson, Stinson, Kory Crabtree, Josh Davis, Nathan Skaggs, Aaron Higgins, Wayne McPeek, and Chris Myers.
          The Kryptonite Late Model main went down in similar fashion.  Chris Garnes led the first lap, but Jason Montgomery dove low into turn one, then rooted out Garnes for the top spot.  From that point on Montgomery went on a tear, that saw him lap all but five cars from the 17-car line-up.
             K.C. Burdette then went to work on Garnes.  That duo put on a great show, going back and forth and changing positions numerous times before Burdette took over second on lap ten.  Still the battle continued.
 Montgomery, however, was flat-out flying.  Burdette suffered a flat tire on the 23rd lap and fell off the pace.  Fast Freddie Carpenter and Travis Brookover were marching up the ladder. Carpenter took over third late in the race after bagging young Colten Burdette.  Brookover ran a smooth race to finish in the top five and was the last car not to be lapped.
            The Hard Charger in the Late Models was Travis Brookover moving up five positions from 10th to 5th.  Rounding out the top ten were Montgomery,  Garnes,  Carpenter, Colten Burdette, Travis Brookover, Larry Bond, Steve Bigley, Andy Bond, Ralph Withem, and K.C. Burdette.
              Perhaps the best race of the night was the tantalizing battle between defending 3-time Octane Modified champ Kenny Johnson and Andy Bond in the modified feature.  Johnson led the first four circuits after Bond flanked him the previous three rounds.  Still a classic side-by-side dual, Bond and Johnson continued the battle royal.  Johnson moved to the low side and edged out Bond for the top spot on the eleventh circuit.
        Veteran Bond continued the combat, but as his tires began to fade Johnson blitzed on to the win.  John Burdette had made the race a three way race for about five laps in the opening part of the race, and then Burdette had to hold off charges of Gary Gould, who ran one of his best races.
          Gould was in the hunt for the duration and fended off two local hot-shoes in James Dennis and Jeremy Berwanger.  After having a flat in his heat Berwanger had to start scratch and made the best of it.   Jeremy Berwanger, moving up nine positions from 15th to 6th, was the hard-charger of the race. 
         Rounding out the top ten were Johnson, Bond, Burdette, Gary Gould, James Dennis, Jeremy Berwanger, Jeremy Blake, Brian Williams, Robert Garnes, and Jerrad Willis.  Brian Williams, the first heat winner, made the trip from Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Skyline Speedway Results May 17, 2013
Stinson, Garnes, Johnson Claim Victory
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-The old adage that "Some things never change" held true once again at Skyline Speedway where former champions dominated victory lane for the 2013 season opener Friday night. Three-time defending Skyline track champions Jimmy Stinson of Vandalia, Ohio (Sprints) and Chris Garnes, Evans, West Virginia (AMRA Kryptonite Late Models) joined three-time defending Octane AMRA Modified champion Kenny Johnson, Mineral Wells, WV on the podium after claiming big wins. Zach Carr won the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges feature.
      None of the races were cakewalks on the super fast, but choppy 3/8 mile red clay oval. Heavy rains Wednesday night and Thursday made the speedway grounds somewhat soupy, but the track crew did a great job in manicuring the track to get the racing in on a long-delayed season opener. The cool breeze from Friday's nearby rain did not temper the hot on-track action.
    Young Nathan Skaggs took the early lead in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association A-main, but was quickly challenged by Jimmy Stinson. That duo battled tooth-and-nail for nearly eight laps until Stinson threaded the needle between two lapped cars, and as the door closed Skaggs had to lift and was never able to challenge Stinson again.
Stinson half-track everyone by mid-race, but as the laps ticked away young Kory Crabtree began to reel in the leader. A lapped car slowed Crabtree with three laps to go, but Crabtree persisted and dove in under Stinson on the last lap only to have the high-riding Stinson carry the momentum for a two-car length win in the B & J Welding and Contracting #84.
     Rounding out the top ten behind Stinson were Crabtree, Aaron Higgins up from 9th, Ryan Broughton, Nathan Skaggs, Josh Davis, Wes McGlumphy, Dave Dickson, Sam Ashworth, and Greg Mitchell. McGlumphy was the hard-charger in a 16th to 7th place run.
     In the AMRA Kryptonite late models the records show that Chris Garnes led every lap. That was somewhat deceiving as numerous times Travis Brookover edged by only to be stifled by Garnes' momentum. Brookover tried every move to try to overcome Garnes, going low, then high and back to the inside perimeter of the track.           Numerous cautions slowed the otherwise competitive event, but in most cases that played into Brookover's hand.
      On lap ten both K.C. Burdette and Fast Freddie Carpenter passed Brookover for second, but a bobble by Burdette allowed Brookover to fight back to second. Nick Dohm, who exited with mechanical problems and Derek Doll were in the hunt all night long, but the big story was the 15th to 4th run by Steve Bigley, whose mount misfired on the last restart to end his awesome run. Andy Bond was free-wheeling on two wheels much of the race at full throttle, advancing at one point from 10th to third. Ralph Withem, the B-main winner, blasted from 16th to fourth to earn hard-charger honors.
     Burdette suffered mechanical woes and went pitside. Lap 18 saw both Bond and Carpenter get by Brookover momentarily as the fierce battle for a top spot continued. Brookover recovered, but the beneficiary was Garnes who legged-it out over the competition as they fought among themselves for second.
Rookie J. T. Conley came from 18th to 7th, while Bob Adams, Jr. leaped from 14th to 8th, and Pete Crum rallied from 17th to 8th. Rounding out the top ten behind Garnes were Brookover, Andy Bond, Ralph Withem, Freddie Carpenter, Derek Doll, J.T. Conley, Bob Adams, Jr., Pete Crum, and Dan Morrison.
      The Octane Race Products AMRA Modifieds produced another great battle. Kyle Bond dogged veteran Kenny Johnson in the early going and took the lead on lap three, as Roy Roush moved into the frey and helped occupy Johnson. Roush fought Bond for first, allowing Johnson to drop under both AMRA stalwarts and back into the lead. Roush and Johnson then ignited a seven-lap battle that saw the duo swap positions at least six times during that segment of the race. Roush officially edged by on lap ten, but a lap later Johnson nosed by. Racing side-by-side the next two laps, the pair rubbed wheels and Roush spun.
      That moved former champ John Burdette, who has sat out much of several years to coach his kids. Burdette coached his varsity girls' basketball team into the state quarter finals this past March. Burdette hadn't lost his touch and tried his hand at taming the always crafty Johnson. Burdette edged alongside Johnson twice, but couldn't make it stick as Johnson marched on to victory. Shawn Donahue had marched from 14th to third at one point, but with five laps to go lost the handle and went to the tail. Still in a fight for hard charger, Donahue fought back to 5th ahead of official hard-charger Gary Gould. Gould blasted from 16th to 6th.
      Early challengers in the race were Andy Bond, Mike McPherson, James Dennis and Jeremy Blake.
Rounding out the top ten behind Johnson and Burdette were James Dennis, Robert Garnes, Shawn Donahue, Gary Gould, Jesse Rupe, Mitchel Sharp, Jamie Gillian, and Jeremy Blake.
Zach Carr won the Mini-Wedge main over Austin Washburn and Kasey Rankin.
    Racing continues Friday, May 24th in all four classes. For more information please visit << www.skylinespeedway.net >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

2012 Skyline Speedway and OVSCA Host Banquet
Champions Crowned
 
MINERAL WELLS, WV-Skyline Speedway and the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association (OVSCA) recently held its annual awards banquet at the Comfort Inn in Mineral Wells, WV, where fans, drivers, crews, owners and families were treated to a fine dinner and an elaborate awards fete. For Skyline Speedway drivers over $15,000 in cash and prizes were awarded at the 4th annual event under Billy Jarrell’s ownership. The OVSCA portion of the banquet was the third for the three-year-old Hoosier Tire sprint car organization, who this year crowned Marietta, Ohio Dave Dickson as its champion. Another $15,000 in prizes and contingencies went to the top 15 in that organization.
               Comfort Inn and speedway staff prepped the fine meal under the direction of banquet coordinator and Skyline Speedway Director of Operations Katie Dickson.  Scott Wolfe, publicist and track announcer,  served as Master of Ceremonies.
               Wolfe gave the invocation and had a special moment of silence for the “1st Lady of Skyline Speedway” and mother of Andy and Larry Bond—Mrs. Sarah Bond, who passed away during the race season.
               Presentations were first made to the top fifteen drivers in the OVSCA.  Dave Dickson was crowned the champion along with longtime car owner Doug Abbott and the 7a racing team. Jimmy Stinson, the defending two-time champ, was second, followed by Josh Davis, Greg Mitchell, Kory Crabtree, Nathan Skaggs, Danny Smith, Bob Tucker, Andre Layfield, Brian Benson, Eric Martin, Wayne McPeek, Jesse McCreary, Ryan Broughton, and Lance Webb.
              Dickson, a veteran of 31 years, claimed the championship aboard Doug Abbott's #7A Schnee Chassis, powered by an Abbott 410 Aluminum Engine. Not only did Dickson attend all 27 races, but incredibly finished every single feature race. That accomplishment came from the diligent work and maintenance schedule set by car-owner Abbott.
              Dickson has been involved in the racing community since his childhood, growing up watching his uncle, 'Lightning Larry' Dickson; compete in USAC and several Indy 500s. This inspired him to get into racing, where he began driving in 1983 alongside brother Steve Dickson. Always a great driver over time, and winning 100's of heat races and three career features, Dickson is noted amicably as "Fine Wine" for ‘getting better with age’.
             Dickson said, “This has been a long time coming. It feels great to be standing here tonight. I’d like to thank my car owner Doug Abbott, my family, and my crew.  I’d also like to thank and congratulate these other 14 drivers standing here tonight.”
            Next Todd Frye of Hoosier Ohio Valley and point-man for the OVSCA came to the podium.  Frye thanked all the teams that participated in the OVSCA, not only this season, but over the last three years.  Frye thanked Hoosier, Hoosier Ohio Valley, Skyline Owner and OVSCA founder Billy Jarrell and all the OVSCA sponsors for making the organization a success.
           Next the top five Modified drivers in Skyline points were presented their awards.  Skyline, the cornerstone of the Malta AMRA Modifieds and OVSCA, presented over $5,000 in cash and contingencies to its modified drivers.  The AMRA Malta Modified crown at Skyline went to Jeremy Berwanger, The Murray City Bandit, who claimed the top spot over Roy Roush, Jeremy Blake, Andy Bond, and Mike McPherson.  Berwanger, who won 8 Skyline features this season won a new Lightning Chassis for his efforts.
          Track owner Billy Jarrell awards each champion driver a new chassis for their efforts. In each of the last three seasons, Jarrell’s cars have won the sprint car title with Jimmy Stinson in the cockpit. As a measure of good faith, Jarrell has put the top ten Skyline driver names in a hat and drawn out a name. This year’s lucky recipient was Bob Tucker, Kingston, Ohio who in only his first full year as a driver finished fifth in points.
            A nearly speechless Tucker said, “Thanks Billy, I’m still in shock.  Thanks for giving us a place to race and thanks for this chassis.”  This year’s Chassis was a George Fisher GF1 Chassis.
             In the sprint car division Jimmy Stinson of Vandalia, Ohio picked up his third straight Skyline Speedway crown in the B & J Welding and Contracting #84. Stinson won a close year-long battle with Marietta's Dave Dickson for the crown just ahead of Josh Davis, Greg Mitchell, and Bob Tucker. 
            In the AMRA Tru-Tech Customs Late Models, Chris Garnes, Evans, WV scored his third straight crown over Ralph Withem, Freddie Carpenter, Andy Bond, and Ronnie Mayle.  Garnes received a special award of recognition in the form of three specialized certificates from owner Billy Jarrell for winning the crown three years in a row. In addition Garnes received a certificate from Audie Swartz for a new 2013 Swartz Xtreme Chassis.  Additionally, Swartz gave Ralph Withem, second place, a certificate for $500 off on his new chassis.  As the slogan goes, Swartz Xtreme Race Cars doesn't build race cars fast; Swartz Xtreme Race Cars builds fast race cars.”
 C & S Racing Photo and Billy Jarrell sponsored the trophies in each division and in the OVSCA. Thirty Trophies were awarded in all.
          The Dayton Auto Racing Fan (DARF) club was on hand. Represented by Hooty Gibson, the club made a presentation to Billy Jarrell, Track Promoter; and gave championship plaques to Jimmy Stinson, Sprint; Chris Garnes, Late Models; and Jeremy Berwanger, Modifieds. The club also gave a host of door prizes for the event, along with Wetzel Kimball from Wetzel’s collectibles, who traditionally awards champions a die cast race car among other gifts and prizes.
           Also recognized were the WRA Mini Wedge drivers and champion Skylar Zimmerman.  Zimmerman won over Zack Carr, Cole Mayle, Austin Washburn, Kalista Barnes, Tanner Martin, Coleman Evans, Ryan Bigley, Coleton Perine, and Madison Martin.
          Billy Jarrell recognized the track staff, track sponsors, and praised all drivers, crews, and fans on yet another successful season.  Jarrell cited that much work goes into a night’s racing program and that it takes a lot of quality people to get the job done.
          Jarrell said, “We try to keep it simple. We have rules and we enforce them the same to everyone. I try to treat everyone as an equal and that’s the only way to do it right. Thanks to everyone who supported us this season and thanks to everyone that is here tonight.”
          Track sponsor Dave Poske of Poske’s Performance Parts came to the podium to offer some words of wisdom and to congratulate the racers on a great racing season.
         The program concluded with a host of door prizes and souvenirs being presented to those in attendance.  Wolfe gave the benediction and prompted guests to “stay tuned to the website” for information on the 2013 racing season.
           OVSCA Sponsors:     Hoosier Tire and Hoosier Tire Ohio Valley are the title sponsors of the series. Among the series sponsors are Dave Poske's Performance Parts << www.poske.com >> ; Octane Race Products, Hoosier Tire << https://www.hoosiertire.com >> ; Allstar Performance << http://www.allstarperformance.com/index.htm >> ; ASI Racewear << http://www.asiwear.com/racewear.html >> ; Outerwears << http://www.outerwearsracing.com/about.html >> ; R2C Powerflow Air Filters << http://www.r2cperformance.com >> ; Saldana Racing Products and Fuel Tanks; Weld Racing Wheels << http://www.weldracing.com/ >> Sprint Co Speed Shop, 740-474-4342; and Bazell Race Fuels.

      The OVSCA banquet is free to all fans, drivers, crews, owners, and sponsors, however; attendees must have a reservation RSVP on or by December 7. This has been OVSCA President Billy Jarrell's way of rewarding all those who help make racing a huge success in the Mid-Ohio Valley.
The banquet will begin with Happy Hour at 6:00 and dinner at 6:30 p.m. Dinner will consist of Pasta Bar, Salad, Water and Ice Tea plus 'Cash Bar'. Awards and door prizes will follow.
      Three years ago (2010) area race track promoters in Southeast Ohio and West Virginia in association with Hoosier Tire- Ohio Valley joined forces to form a new 410 winged sprint car series-- the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association (OVSCA). At the time, Hoosier Racing Tire -Sprint Product manager Neil Cowman said, "This series will give the drivers and team owners the option of being able to continue to race on America's most competitive sprint tire."
       With the signing of Hoosier Tire to other sanctioning bodies for the 2013 season, Hoosier Tire Ohio Valley executive Todd Frye said, "This should give the OVSCA more options, and make it easier for the series to expand. Having the drivers race multiple venues on quality Hoosier tires is a great thing for sprint car racing in general. I see this as a win-win for local drivers and for the growth of our series."
     "I would like to congratulate all of our drivers and especially our champion Dave Dickson. Thanks to everyone who participated throughout the season."
      The first two years of the OVSCA saw Jimmy Stinson, Vandalia, Ohio bring home the championship.
      In 2012 racing veteran Dave Dickson, Marietta, of the racing Dickson family, claimed his first series championship. Of the 27 races in the series, Dickson had ten top five's and 16 top-ten finishes, including numerous second place finishes. Dickson edged Stinson, 1653 to 1620 in a points' battle that went down to the very last race of the season.
      Dickson, a veteran of 31 years, claimed the championship aboard Doug Abbott's #7A Schnee Chassis, powered by an Abbott 410 Aluminum Engine. Not only did Dickson attend all 27 races, but incredibly finished every single feature race. That accomplishment came from the diligent work and maintenance schedule set by car-owner Abbott.
      Dickson has been involved in the racing community since his childhood, growing up watching his uncle, 'Lightning Larry' Dickson; compete in USAC and several Indy 500s. This inspired him to get into racing, where he began driving in 1983 alongside brother Steve Dickson. Always a great driver over time, and winning 100's of heat races and three career features, Dickson is noted amicably as "Fine Wine" for getting better with age.
      Although all drivers and teams are welcome, the top fifteen only will be receiving awards.
Rounding out the top ten behind champion Dickson and Stinson were Josh Davis, Greg Mitchell, Kory Crabtree, Nathan Skaggs, Danny Smith, Bob Tucker, Andre Layfield, Brian Benson, Eric Martin, Wayne McPeek, Jesse McCreary, Ryan Broughton, and Lance Webb. A separate release for Skyline was submitted earlier this week.
       Smith led the charge in victories with ten wins, Stinson had five, Cole Duncan three, Andre Layfield and Nathan Skaggs two each, and Kody Kinser, Greg Mitchell, Kory Crabtree, and Ryan Broughton one apiece. Mitchell, Broughton, and Skaggs were first-time winners. *Totals reflect OVSCA wins only.

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-It wasn't quite Halloween, but it was a festive night with nearly 30 kids in costume for the annual Jack-o-Lantern 30’s at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. In the 410 sprint division for Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association drivers, Jimmy Stinson, Vandalia, Ohio lapped all but two cars en route to the $2,000 win in the thirty lap affair. In the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models, Chris Garnes, Evans, WV claimed the $2,000 feature win, and Doug Henry, Beverly, Ohio claimed the $1,000 AMRA MALTA Modified Main. Ken Meadows brought home the win in the Mod-Lite Division, while Zach Carr won the WRA Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.
The first feature event of the night was the Jack-O-Lantern 30 for sprint cars. Aaron Higgins in the John Shewbrooks A79 won the dash and sat on the pole of the A-main. Higgins stormed into an early lead, but Stinson quickly dived into the chase, staging a seven-lap side-by-side battle with Higgins.
Stinson twice tried a slide job in turn two, but Higgins’ momentum carried him back to the point. Stinson finally blitzed under Higgins in turn three, then mastered one of the most dominant on-track performances the Ohio Valley has seen over the last several seasons.
Going into the frey Dave Dickson, Marietta, OH had both the OVSCA and Skyline points’ leads, but held the Skyline lead by just four points. Dickson had a great run going early, anchoring third place much of the first half of the event before Kory Crabtree, Josh Davis, and Greg Mitchell leapfrogged ahead in two-lap passing intervals.
With two laps to go, Crabtree jumped the cushion and stormed through the pit exit unscathed, but out of the race. Meanwhile, Stinson in a brand new B & J Welding mount pulled away from the field and had nearly lapped the third place car of Davis when the checkered flag waved.
The win earned crew chief Gary Hall, owner Billy Jarrell and Stinson their third straight Skyline Speedway championship. Unofficially, Dickson claimed the OVSCA championship as both drivers earned congratulatory praises.
Rounding out the top ten were Jimmy Stinson, Aaron Higgins, Josh Davis, Greg Mitchell, Dave Dickson, Greg Lay, Kory Crabtree, Bob Tucker, Lance Webb, and Brian Benson. Mitchell was hard-charger in a 7th to 4th place run.
In the late model feature, Fast Freddie Carpenter led the early portions of the race, but in a similar plot to the sprint main, Chris Garnes battled Carpenter for eight grueling laps. Garnes made a high side pass stick, then had to withstand pressure from Carpenter for several laps.
As traffic began to separate the cars, Garnes found a groove and began a rampage that left very few prisoners as he lapped all but the top seven cars in what reportedly was his 18th win of the season. K-C Burdette and Chris Carpenter mounted charges from deep in the field as Andy Bond anchored third for much of the event just ahead of Ralph Withem and Dan Morrison.
At one point a 12th place Bob Adams, Jr. raced into 7th place before fading to ninth at the finish. Chris Carpenter had a flashy run to the front, storming from 11th to third place at the finish. K-C Burdette blasted from last to seventh--a pick-up of 11 spots to earn hard charger honors.
Withem , Bond, and Morrison all drove steady races to finish well into the top ten. Garnes lapped several cars in the field two times in his impressive run. Rounding out the top ten were Garnes, Freddie Carpenter, Chris Carpenter, Andy Bond, Ralph Withem, Dan Morrison, K-C Burdette, Tyler Carpenter, Bob Adams, Jr., and Larry Bond.
Doug Henry was equally dominant in the MALTA Doors and Windows modifieds, however, the race changer came when a caution flew and erased Henry's enormous lead with just two laps to go. Henry had too lapped all but the first eight cars in fine fashion, however, the caution put Roy Roush directly on his tail at the restart.
Tyler Evans, the heat one winner, battled with Henry for several laps before getting shuffled back several spots. Andy Bond and Roush, nearly a half track behind, had entertained the crowd for a couple laps with Bond poised for a pass just as the caution flew.
At that time Henry was in a class all by himself. But now with just two laps to go, Roush was square on Henry's tail. On the restart Roush, Henry, and Bond went three wide in turns one and two, but going into turn four Tyler Carpenter jumped into the mix. Roush passed Henry on the next to last circuit and going into three appeared to have the race all but won. Carpenter drove in well beyond the Mendoza line and made it stick, while Henry dug down to find some extra thrust on the bottom of the track. Nearly three wide across the line, Henry won by just a couple of inches in a dramatic finish.
Rounding out the top ten were Doug Henry, Roy Roush, Tyler Carpenter, Andy Bond, Tyler Evans, Jeff Wood, Jeremy Blake, Mike McPherson, Robert Garnes, and Frank Roush. Bond raced from 9th to fourth and Carpenter from 13th to 3rd to earn hard-charger honors.
The Mod Lite feature was similar to the modified race except that Jeff Fornash and Ken Meadows had battled wheel-to-wheel and nose to tail for the entire first 13 laps. After a caution with two circuits left, Meadows dove under Fornash and Tracy Fritter followed in suit to take second. Fornash rebounded to take Fritter at the line for second, while Meadows rolled on to the win.
Rounding out the top ten were Ken Meadows, Jeff Fornash,Tracy Fritter, Freddie Carpenter, Mitch Ward, Tyler Riggs, James Watson, Doug Stanley, Cody Bova, and Todd Rhodes. Driving Bill Thorla's 0-t car, Freddie Carpenter was hard charger in 10th to fourth place run.
Zach Carr claimed the Mike's Mini Wedge main over early leader Coleman Evans. The top ten consisted of Carr, Coleman Evans, Austin Washburn, Skylar Zimmerman, Samantha Roush, Nathan Drake, Tanner Martin, Hailey Taylor, Kasey Rankin, and Lucas Shaw.
Fans should stay tuned to << www.skylinespeedway.net >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111. Plans for the 2013 banquet will be announced soon.

Harvest 50 Results

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-A full house, a timely Harvest Moon, and a great field of 31 AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models provided the backdrop for Grayson, KY's Josh McGuire, who won his fourth Harvest 50 event Saturday night at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. McGuire brought home the $5,000 first prize in the 29th running of the 'Harvest 50' fifty-lap event, finishing well ahead of second place Rod Conley, Wheelersburg, OH and Eddie Carrier, Jr., Salt Rock, WV. Despite a pair of cautions, the race was run in just 20 minutes and thirty seconds. McGuire won the Harvest 50 in 2006, 2008, and 2009.
Claiming the AMRA MALTA Road Warrior 30-lap finale was Mineral Wells, WV driver and defending two-time AMRA National Champion Kenny Johnson, while Grafton, WV driver Andre Layfield claimed the 25-lap Sprint car main.
"The key tonight was what we did before the feature, and us thrashing around in the pits," smiled a relieved McGuire. "Last week at Eldora the car did the same thing and we just couldn't find the problem. We changed carburetors, MSD boxes, needles, floats, plugs and it just kept missing. Right before we came out I put the timing light on it back there where it was dark. Just by accident I saw the number one plug wire was arching across to the motor. I put a new wire on it and the problem was solved. That may have saved us tonight."
"We hooked up good just about anywhere, but the car was fastest on the bottom. All I had to do was drive."
"I'd like to thank Tony at Stealth Carbs for sendin us a great carburetor too," added McGuire. "Thanks to U.S. Steel, D'J's Kitchen Corner, Poske's Performance Parts, Sunoco Race Fuels and all of our sponsors. It's great to bring home another Harvest 50 win."
McGuire and Conley paced the field to Todd Gorrell's green flag start. The duo battled side-by-side for nearly five laps, when Conley faded in the high groove and McGuire began his march to victory. Defending race champ Eddie Carrier, Jr. quickly jumped up the ladder from 9th to fourth behind Tyler Carpenter, who blitzed from 7th-to-third.
Meanwhile, Ralph Withem appeared to have his 15W wound to perfection with a 15th-to-eighth place run that eventually was stonewalled in a heated battle with Andy Bond. Chris Garnes had dropped back to 8th at one point. before the first caution waved for a tangle between one of the night's top qualifiers Ricky Williams (Beckley, WV) and Dan Morrison ( Newport, Ohio).
As Conley settled in behind McGuire's GPC Engines/Mastersbuilt, realizing he had nothing for a challenge, the pair of 28's --Carpenter and Carrier-- battled fiercely. Garnes moved high, mounting a charge back toward the front, picking off Bond and Dohm, then engaging in a three-way battle with Carpenter and Carrier.
Just as the action was heating up Anthony Huber caught an inside tire and went airborne, becoming the second casualty of the race on lap 14. The next 36 laps went green-to-checkered with McGuire half-tracking second place Conley, lapping every car up to eighth place Withem, and even lapping some cars twice.
The dominant performance by McGuire just left Conley shaking his head.
"Josh was just better than me tonight," said Rod Conley matter-of-factly. "I thought I had something for him early, moved up beside him and gave him a run for a few laps, then he checked out. I just went to the bottom and tried to stay there to pick up second. Finishing one and two this weekend has been a pretty good deal." Conley won at Southern Ohio Speedway on Friday.
Defending Harvest 50 winner Eddie Carrier, Jr. said, "The first few laps everyone was trying to find a groove and I was able to get under them. I had a good run on the bottom, but then everyone found that the bottom was fast. The only way I was going to get around Rod (Conley) was to spin him and I wasn't going to do that."
Garnes worked his way back to fourth ahead of Tyler Carpenter, Zach Dohm, Andy Bond, Ralph Withem, Chris Carpenter, and K-C Burdette who rounded out the top ten. Burdette and Withem each advanced seven positions to share hard charger honors. Carrier came from 9th to third with a great run.
The MALTA AMRA Modified Main was a great one with Kenny Johnson leading from green to checkered. Johnson, however, was the prey being chased by a pack of hungry wolves. Johnson and Roy Roush raced side by side for seven laps until the first caution waved for a slowing K-C Burdette, doing double-duty in a modified.
Roush tried Johnson several times, but the battle allowed Jeremy Berwanger to move into the picture, making it a torrid three-way firefight. Robert "Booger" Garnes battled back third and at times challenged Berwanger. Tyler Carpenter and Roush battled fiercely until Carpenter went by for good on the 18th circuit. Roush settled in to fifth, where he again found himself in another rumble with Chris Stotts and Kyle Bond.
Johnson's Shaw Chassis/Billy Lloyd powered 1J was fast down the straights, but Berwanger was fast everywhere. Berwanger bagged Roush for second at the halfway mark, then set his sights on Johnson. Johnson played the lapped traffic perfectly, seemingly putting a car between he and Berwanger every other lap.
Berwanger would quickly close the gap, but couldn't nose under Johnson. Berwanger continued low, then on the final two circuits drove in deeper about one groove up and nearly pulled off the win at the finish.
Although, it appears imminent, yet unofficial; Johnson has claimed yet another Road Warrior Challenge Crown. Nick Corbitt had a strong season and looks to finish second.
"It was just a matter of getting to the bottom and staying on the bottom," said Johnson. "I made up my mind that if I had to stop the car to stay on the bottom, I'd stop. I was pretty good in one and two, but I stumbled in three and four."
"No one was moving up much off the bottom, so I figured if someone was gonna get by, they would have to beat me to the bottom. Thanks to Dad, Tim, and Chad for helping me get to victory lane."
"Congratulations to Kenny. He had a great run," said Berwanger. "We may have been a little bit better than him, but he was in the right places at the right time. I could close the gap, but just could get by. Thanks to Dad and Brad Kassler tonight. They had the car right."
Robert Garnes said, "We lost a motor in my car and Nick (Carr) let me borrow his this week. I 'm glad it drove good. I'd never been in it before and he offered me the ride. To get third is a pretty big deal and we're glad to be here."
Rounding out the top ten behind the flying Garnes were Carpenter, Roy Roush, Chris Stotts, Kyle Bond, Mike McPherson, Nick Corbitt, and Jeremy Blake. Several drivers advanced three positions to share hard charger honors.
For the second straight week, the OVSCA sprint series feature went right down to the final lap. Andre Layfield led the first official lap, immediately going to the rim of the track for some bite in the "thread of a cushion" that remained. Said Andre, "At a couple points the wall WAS the cushion. If I'd missed my marks any more it would have been bad news."
Dave Dickson then led a couple circuits, going the extreme opposite with the very lowest line possible around the inside circumference. That duo battled side by side for several laps.
Then Layfield appeared to stretch out his lead, only to have Dickson once again close the gap. Dickson had Jimmy Stinson on his coat tails for much of the race, but just when Stinson would close in, Dickson would respond.
Young Lance Webb had a great dash run (second place) then held a top five for much of the feature. Inside the first ten laps, a Stinson-Josh Davis battle mirrored the Layfield-Dickson Marquee at the point.
Only a late race comeback by Nathan Skaggs was able to knock Webb out of a top five.
As the race came to a close, Layfield had a somewhat comfortable lead from lap 15-thru-19 when Dickson quickly closed the gap and appeared to be the faster of the two cars. Layfield's cushion had vanished, but his momentum around lapped traffic kept him up front. Dickson edged ever so much closer, actually taking the lead on the backchute of the 23rd circuit.
Dickson low, Layfield high, the exciting battle continued to the checkered flag with Layfield barely a car length ahead at the finish.
"I guess the key tonight was being lucky...lucky to get a good start and lucky I didn't run out of race track," said Layfield. "I was running out of track and didn't know Dave was so close. I saw him down there on the bottom and had to pick up the pace. Really, I wouldn't be here tonight if it wasn't for Pine Tree Towing. Thanks to Randy for helping me get to victory lane and Maxim, Quick Time, and Ace Metals."
Noted second place Dickson, "It was a good run. We got the set up where we wanted it and the car really hooked up on the bottom. Maybe one more lap....I don't know. We got stuck briefly behind a lapped car and that might have been the difference at the end. All in all though, I couldn't be any happier."
Added third place Stinson, "Once again I'd like to thank Gary (Hall) and Billy (Jarrell) for putting us together a great race car. We were close tonight, but got a little loose at the end, and we were just little better last week. But we're glad to bring home third."
Rounding out the top ten were Dickson, Jimmy Stinson, Josh Davis, Nathan Skaggs, Lance Webb, Kory Crabtree, Aaron Higgins, Greg Mitchell,and Eric Martin. Again several drivers picked up three positions to share hard charger honors.

Skyline Speedway Results, Sept. 7 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-100 cars, a nice crowd and warm-tropical weather set the back-drop for what proved to be another wonderful reception for the 4th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio. The headlining Schilling Memorial was a highly contested 30-lapper that saw local hotshoe Roy Roush, Guysville, Ohio claim the biggest win of his career in the $1,699 to win Malta AMRA Road Warrior A-main. Two-time defending OVSCA sprint car champion Jimmy Stinson, Vandalia pulled off a photo finish win over Nathan Skaggs in the 410 outlaw sprint division, while Evans, WV driver Chris Garnes picked up his 7th Skyline win of the year and 16th overall in the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models.
43 of the nation's finest modified drivers packed the pits to honor their friend and competitor Greg Schilling, who was one of the early hot-shoes in the American Motor Racing Association (AMRA) Each of the pay-off positions ended in a #99 to honor Schilling's racing number 99. $99 also went to fast timer Mike McPherson, and $99 went to Tanner Wilson for claiming the dash (compliments of Wetzel's Collectibles).
Four exciting heat races set the stage for the main event, then two feature-like B-mains heralded the last cars to the A-main.
The Millfield Missile, Mike McPherson shot ahead of pole-sitter Tanner Wilson to lead the first then laps. All the while Rocket Roy Roush was alongside the barnstorming McPherson with an occasional early challenge from Jeremy Berwanger. The Roush-McPherson battle lasted through the first one-third of the race, until Roush zipped by after a restart driving hard into one and carrying momentum of turn two for the pass. The role reversal saw McPherson now giving chase. The side-by-side battle continued with McPherson or Kenny Johnson on either side of Roush in a brief torrid battle to the halfway point. Roush began to check out on the field. Defending two-time AMRA National Champion Kenny Johnson blasted past McPherson on lap sixteen, then concentrated his assault on Roush.
For Johnson, it was too-little, too late. Roush manufactured a picture perfect race with a well-scripted finish, the biggest pay-day of his career. His iconic R-2 was a Jimmy Owens Performance Chassis powered by a 421 Chevrolet George Caldwell engine. Chris Stotts made an early run into the top five but his drive stalled at the heels of a charging Berwanger. A great battle for position developed between big name drivers Jesse Wisecarver, Jason Brookover, Rick Auckland, Kevin Morehouse, and Tyler Carpenter. Brookover won the first B-main and was on the move in the feature from 13th to 7th. The Hard Charger in the MALTA Windows AMRA Modifieds was Andy Bond moving up eight positions from 19th to 11th. Bond and owner Ernie Hoschar suffered engine failure prior to hot laps, thus setting the stage for Dusty Boley to offer his car as a back-up. Bond did not race his way into the feature missing the main by two slots, however, as tradition has it the 19th starting spot is put up for bids at auction. Hoschar's winning bid of $450 did the trick and helped boost the Schilling Foundation fund, which provides Scholarships and other humanitarian aid to the community.
Said the jubilant Roush, "I talked to Jimmy (Owens) last weekend and he gave me some set-up pointers. And wow did that car work slick."
"The key for me tonight was my tires. A few weeks ago they gave out, but with the harder compound I kept the tires under me and was able to keep some heat in them. It really helped having long green flag runs and few cautions. It's great feeling to be able to bring home the win."
An upbeat Kenny Johnson said, "I should have went lower sooner, but didn't want to give up what I had. Once I went low I made some headway, but Roy had a good car and it would have taken a near-perfect run to catch him tonight."
"I wanted this race bad," pondered Mike McPherson. "I chose the wrong tires and they went away. Roy and I had a great race going during the first half. We had a fast car, but once the tires got hot I just had to hang on. Congratulations to Roy...That's my old car (Roush's R-2) and it looked good tonight."
There were very few dropouts in the feature and lapped traffic may have been a savior for Roush, who diligently picked his way through a stonewall of back-markers to pad his lead over the oncoming Johnson.
Rounding out the top ten were Roy Roush, Kenny Johnson, Mike McPherson, Jeremy Berwanger, Chris Stotts, Jesse Wisecarver, Jason Brookover, Rick Auckland, Kevin Morehouse, and Tyler Carpenter.
The opening feature was a very good one, but the following 410 sprint main was one of the best witnessed in many years. Initially, Danny Smith, in typical outlaw fashion blasted into the lead and seemed to have the race well in hand. Smith battle Jimmy Stinson early then began to check-out during laps 6-10. Although the short fast way was along the bottom, the track developed multiple grooves. Andrea Layfield at one time had blasted from 10th to fifth riding the rim of the track, walking a tightrope between success and disaster.
By midway, Stinson began to reel in Smith, while Nathan Skaggs went 'elbows up' and ran down Stinson. It appeared that Kody Kinser might make it a tight four-car slugfest. Kinser of Bloomington, IN battled Aaron Higgins hard, and had to repel the efforts of Layfield and Eric Martin who had one of his best-ever finishes and a top six in time trials.
By lap 16 Stinson had run down Smith amid heavy traffic and mounted a side-by-side challenge. Three laps later young Skaggs added the third flavor to the spicy tango, taking his number 2 to the bottom while Stinson rode the high side on either side of Smith. Skaggs took second on lap 20, with Stinson just inches behind. Skaggs passed Smith on lap 23, then a lap later Stinson followed suit as Smith nearly spun his mount as his car visibly lost traction.
Stinson officially posted second on the white flag lap as he and Skaggs crossed the line nearly in a dead heat. With fans cheering and on their feet, Skaggs led the escape through turns one and two, and into a dog fight through 3 and 4 where the dynamic duo rifled to the finish line for a narrow Stinson victory. Stinson officially led one lap--the last one for the win in the Maxim/Charlie Fisher powered B &J Welding and Contracting #84.
Said Stinson, "The key to this win was my mechanic Gary Hall. He made some changes tonight that really hooked up the car and all I had to do was drive it. Also, Thanks to Billy Jarrell for giving me great equipment. That race had to be a great race for the fans. It could have been anyone's race right down to the wire."
The Hard Chargers in the Sprints were Andre Layfield moving up four positions from 10th to 6th and Lance Webb moving up four positions from 14th to 10th. Bob Tucker won his first-ever sprint race with a B-main win.
Rounding out the top ten were Jimmy Stinson, Nathan Skaggs, Danny Smith, Kody Kinser, Aaron Higgins, Andre Layfield, Eric Martin, Eddie Slone, Dave Dickson, and Lance Webb.
Perhaps overshadowed by the ultra-close races in the modifieds and Sprints, the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Model main was a good one . Eventual winner Garnes battled early withK-C Burdette, then settled into a midnight waltz. At one time all three Carpenters--Fast Freddie, Chris and Tyler were running 3-4-5. Following a restart, Travis Brookover blasted by a pair of cars and set his sights on teammate Garnes. Brookover's driver stalled in fifth. Freddie Carpenter disposed of K-C Burdette on lap 16, then continued to chase down Garnes making an exciting race right down to the finish.
Rounding out the top ten were Garnes, Freddie Carpenter, KC Burdette, Chris Carpenter, Travis Brookover, Roy Roush, Tyler Carpenter, Kevin Wagner, Bob Adams, Jr., and Larry Bond. Kevin Wagner had fast time of 13:34. The Hard Charger in the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models was Larry Bond moving up eight positions from 18th to 10th.
Next week as Skyline moves to Saturday night (Sept. 15) the speedway will host the annual Harvest 50 paying $5,000 for Late Models and $1,200 to win for the AMRA Road Warriors. OVSCA sprints will also be on the agenda paying $1,500 to win.

The Sarah Bond Big Three

Skyline $3,000 to win in three classes
Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-One of the largest crowds in recent years turned out to honor a very special lady as part of "The Sarah Bond Big Three" in memory of Sarah Bond, wife of long time Ohio Valley racing legend Ronnie Bond. Claiming the win in the exciting 40-lap AMRA Late Model A-main was Grayson, KY driver "Bad Fast" Josh McGuire, while Cole Duncan, Lockborne, OH claimed the win in the 30-lap Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association main, and Kenny "Worth the Price of Admission" Johnson, two-time defending MALTA AMRA Champion blitzed from 12th to 1st in the AMRA Modified Main. Cole Mayle claimed the WRA Little 3 with sponsorship from the Bond Family and friend of Racing Ben Ayers.
Pryor to the races, a moment of silence was held in memory of Sarah Bond and Larry Bond, Andy Bond, Kyle Bond and Patriarch Ronnie Bond brought out the four Bond entries to the front chute for a 4-car family tribute.
Another Grayson, KY driver Jackie Boggs in his familiar #4B joined pole-sitter Rick Williams' Pro-Power #12 on the front row of the first $3,000 to win main event. Williams jumped into the lead, but quickly Boggs blitzed the inside groove with a cross over move to take the lead. Boggs moved up to the middle groove where the track began to take rubber and started to pull away from the pack with Williams securely in second.
Meanwhile, McGuire struggled to get going as did much of the potent 18-car field. Boggs quickly raced into traffic and had nearly lapped the 12th place car of Racin' Jason Montgomery when the caution flag waved on lap for K-C Burdette and Freddie Carpenter who tangled after Burdette snagged an infield uke tire and lost his steering.
At the time it was Boggs, Williams, Travis Brookover, McGuire, and fast timer Tyler Carpenter. On the restart McGuire leaped past Brookover, but Brookover fought back as Williams gave Boggs a brief run for the top spot. A lap later McGuire shook Brookover and in one swift blitz blasted by Williams for second. McGuire and Boggs then battle a couple more laps side by side to lap twenty with McGuire took over and began to stretch it out to the checkered.
Rounding out the top ten were Josh McGuire, Jackie Boggs, Ricky Williams, Travis Brookover, Chris Garnes, Tyler Carpenter, Tim Dohm, Ralph Withem, Greg Oliver, and Jason Montgomery. In the Late Models Jason Montgomery was the hard charger moving up five positions from 15th to 10th.
The sprint car main settled into the same script as the LM main. Josh Davis blasted into the early lead as a result of his pole start and fast car dash win. Davis go the jump on outside pole starter Dave Dickson, who nestled into second then had a great save after locking nerf bars with Danny Smith. Dickson was shuffled out of the top five but masterfully righted the sideways car.
The sprint car field saw cars from across the Buckeye State, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Australia. Jack Lee drove one of Danny Smith's mounts into the 18-car feature while B-main winner Christopher Bell in the Rick Ferkel's 0 quickly became a fan favorite
Former All-Star Champ Greg Wilson, Benton Ridge, OH was on the move, but caught one of the infield tires and nearly flipped. The incident left his mount disabled at a time when Davis had just started to lap the back markers and distance himself from a hard-charging Duncan.
On the restart Duncan stuck to Davis like glue, Davis at one point put two cars between him and Duncan, but the persistent youngster stalked Davis several more circuits to lap 19 when Duncan dove under Davis in turn three for the race-winning pass.
Andre Layfield kept Danny Smith and Kory Crabtree at bay the entire race, but one of the best battles of the night was a mid race dual between Crabtree and Christopher Bell. Crabtree impeded Bell's run from the back of the pack, but Bell, Norman, Oklahoma was the hard charger moving up ten positions from 16th to 6th. Bell had earlier charged to the front to win an exciting B-main which also saw Kody Kinser come from the tail to second.
Kinser was equally impressive in the feature with a 17th to 10th place run after tearing off his front suspension in the heat. Although every car was fast and passing was at a premium, some drivers such as Bell and Kinser had the right set-up to advance to the front.
Duncan blitzed on to the uncontested win over Davis and Layfield. Rounding out the top ten were Danny Smith, Kory Crabtree, Christopher Bell, Dave Dickson, Keith Baxter, and Kody Kinser. Greg Mitchell, a flip victim last week, was second fast qualifier with a 12:97 behind Duncan's 12:89.
Saving the best for last, the AMRA MALTA Mods hung their laurels on the shoulders of their two-time defending champion Kenny Johnson. Johnson did not disappoint. Rick Aukland caught an infield tire on the first turn of the first lap, ruining his shot at a clean sweep after big wins in his heat and fast car dash.
Aukland went pitside and Roy Roush, Guysville, OH inherited the pole alongside Tyler Carpenter. Roush and Carpenter went at it for several laps with Roush holding the early lead and surviving several cautions. Six -time winner Jeremy Berwanger lurked in wait most of the race and eventually bagged Carpenter for second. Jason Brookover at one point was shuffled back to eighth, but the talented driver never through in the towel and came back to post a top five.
Andy Bond, Brookover, Carpenter and Robert Garnes battled unselfishly hard through the second ten lap leg. Garnes had a solid top five going, but his tires soon began to fade as did Bond's. All eyes were on Kenny Johnson, the master of the modifieds.
Johnson and the "High-side" gang were primed and on the move. Johnson had started 12th, but blitzed some pretty hot iron early in the event, meticulously working his way to the front. Johnson locked horns with Garnes, then Berwanger. Brookover studied Johnson's line and once again surged forward and back into the top ten.
Two grooves up from the rest of the pack Johnson galloped. Johnson then set out to catch Roush who had now built up a comfortable lead. In quick order Johnson eclipsed the Roush lead and on lap 22 took over for good and raced onto the win.
Rounding out the top ten were Kenny Johnson, Roy Roush, Jeremy Berwanger, Jason Brookover, Tyler Carpenter, Jeremy Blake, Robert Garnes, Andy Bond, JC Casto, and Kyle Bond. Bond picked up six positions, while Kenny Johnson was the hard charger moving up eleven positions from 12th to 1st.
Skyline will take the Labor Day Weekend off, then host the 4th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial Sept. 7 paying $1,699 to win and $199 to start. The next night, Sept. 8 Ohio Valley hosts a $1,200 to win show for a big double header weekend.
The Harvest 50 will be September 15, 2012.

Garnes, Skaggs, Berwanger Post Wins

by Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-A cool night, fast track and a pit full of hard chargers set the stage for a wild program in all three divisions Friday night Aug. 17 at Skyline Speedway. Chris Garnes, Evans, WV picked up his 6th Skyline feature win of the year and his 13th overall in 2012 in the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models, while Nathan Skaggs, Chillicothe, OH claimed his second career win in the OVSCA 410 winged sprints, and Jeremy Berwanger, the Murray City Bandit, claimed the MALTA AMRA Modified Main. Zach Carr won the Mini-Wedge main.

In the 25-lap AMRA Tru-Tech Late Model main, Ronnie Mayle suffered a flat tire and suspension damage ending his chances for a win from the outside pole. On the restart Fast Freddie Carpenter, fast timer for the night, blasted by pole sitter and dash winner Jason Montgomery. Montgomery came back to lead lap one officially, and led the next ten circuits, building up a straight away lead. Quickly, Garnes closed the gap and blew by Montgomery on lap 12.
Montgomery's mount was spotted with a slowly leaking tire, that resulted from catching the cushion with his front bumper when moving up to pass lapped traffic. Montgomery nursed his mount several more laps before exiting. Garnes went on a long green run to lap twenty-two when he was about to lap fifth place Dan Morrison. Morrison was saved by the caution for Bob Adams, Jr. who lost a drive shaft setting a shoot-out to the finish.
Garnes was the lone gun in the scuffle and easily outdistanced Ralph Withem, Andy Bond, K-C Burdette and Morrison the remainder of the event. Larry Clark was a hard flip victim in his heat, but was uninjured. Rounding out the top ten were Chris Garnes, Ralph Withem, Andy Bond, K-C Burdette, Dan Morrison, Jason Gillian, Bob Adams, Jr., Roy Roush, Jason Montgomery, and Daniel Hill.
The hard charger of the race was shared by K-C Burdette and Jason Gillian as each picked up six spots.

Jimmy Stinson started on the pole and led the first ten laps in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association A-main, but for a time Nathan Skaggs began to reel him in. Stinson made a bonsai move past three lapped cars that separated him by ten car lengths until Jeff Conrad brought out the caution on lap 11.

On the restart Stinson again blasted into the lead and started to pull away. Nathan Skaggs worked the middle groove then found the low side to his liking. The bottom rider was on a rail. Skaggs reeled in Stinson and made the race-winning pass on lap 16. Three laps later, however, Greg Mitchell jumped the cushion and flipped end for end through turn two. Mitchell was winded after the spill, but emerged only shaken. At the same time under the red, Stinson's mount ground to a halt with suspension damage, ending a bid for owner Billy Jarrell to win six straight OVSCA features.

When the race resumed Skaggs was briefly challenged by charging Josh Davis, but Skaggs had too much bite on the bottom and brought home the win. Rounding out the line-up were Nathan Skaggs, Josh Davis, Dave Dickson, Jesse McCreary, Brian Benson, Bob Tucker, Eddie Miller, Jimmy Stinson, Greg Mitchell, Jeff Conrad, and Nick Forcum. Dave Dickson was the hard charger of the race moving up five spots and Bob Tucker moved up four.

The boys were a little anxious in the MALTA AMRA Modified main as it took three restarts to get the race underway. A few sprinkles made the start a little tricky, but mother nature was not about to secure the win.
Jeremy Berwanger slingshot into the early lead and survived numerous cautions with Jackson driver Aaron Pendleton on his hindquarters. Third place Tyler Carpenter bobbled on lap three then watched as his mount broke a front suspension for another caution.
Berwanger continued to lead strong as Aaron Pendleton and Andy Bond battled hard for second. Finally, Bond made the pass stick and set his sights on Berwanger. With seven laps to go a caution slowed the field for a final time and Bond made his move to no avail. Berwanger put on the afterburners and blitzed to the win.
Roy Roush was hard charger in a 15 to 6th run. Rounding out the top ten were Jeremy Berwanger, Andy Bond, Aaron Pendleton, Vince Conrad, Shawn Rhodes, Roy Roush, Robbie Evans, Jeremy Blake, Jeremy Roush, and Kyle Bond.

In the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges Zach Carr pulled off the exciting victory of wheel banging, side-by-side racing fury for the youngsters. Rounding out the top ten were Zach Carr, Coleman Evans, Skylar Zimmerman, Aiden Powell, Cole Mayle, Kalista Barnes, Austin Washburn, Ryan Bigley, Nathan Drake, and Lucas Shaw.
Next week is the historic Sarah Bond Big Three in memory of Sarah Bond. Each race of the big three pays $3,000 to win and $200 to start in each of the AMRA Malta Mods, OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars, and Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models--Three features, three classes, three races paying $3,000 to win!

McGuire McBest In Shutts Memorial
Mitchell Magical in OVSCA Sprints/Carpenter Captures Malta Mods


STEWART, OHIO-It was one of those rare summer nights when everything just seems to fall into place. Such was the case Friday night July 20th when area storms pounded villages within only a few miles of Skyline Speedway, yet the racetrack was spared for a great night of racing. The heavy, damp air and early drizzle left the 3/8 mile speedplant, tacky and fast throughout the night, setting the stage for a blistering new track record and Jack Shutts Memorial feature win by Grayson, KY driver Josh McGuire.
         Washington, WV driver Greg Mitchell claimed his first-ever 410 sprint feature over Josh Davis and Jimmy Stinson, while Tyler Carpenter, S. Parkersburg, WV brought home the win in the MALTA AMRA Modifieds, and Coleton Perine won the WRA Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.
         A moment of silence was held in memory of Sarah Bond, wife of longtime Ohio Valley racing legend Ronnie Bond and mother of Larry and Andy Bond, multi-time late model and modified champions. Sarah herself was a pretty good racer back in the powder puff days, winning many races before finally hanging up the helmet. Many racers, led by the racing Roush family collected $800 for the Bond family. Skyline Speedway on behalf of the Bond family would like to thank all the fans who contributed to this cause.
Josh McGuire has won at Skyline all but four times he has made the trip from his 'Ole Kentucky Home'. Two times he broke, and two other times he suffered close defeats. Friday night (July 20) McGuire was on top of his game.
         McGuire's US Steel #41 blistered the Skyline Speedway track record with a resounding 12:04 clocking, eclipsing the eight-year old record of 12:18 set by John Brown back in 2004. McGuire narrowly missed a clean sweep with a second place finish to Zach Dohm in the fast car dash (dedicated to the late Sarah Bond). 21 of the 31 cars signed in for the evening set times in the 12 second bracket, compliments of a super-fast race track.
         At the start of the 35-lap 4th annual Shutts Memorial A-main for AMRA Late Models, Dohm of St. Albans, WV powered the Seymour Logging entry into the lead over McGuire and the Salt Rock Express-- Eddie Carrier, Jr.
         Carrier shuffled McGuire back to third as that trio survived a gaggle of early cautions. Each time Dohm emerged the leader, but as green flag laps began to mount, Dohm started to pull away. McGuire bagged Carrier on lap eleven, then sought to run down Dohm, who by that time had a quarter-lap lead.
Dohm's mount appeared to slow as the laps ticked off and on lap 14 McGuire blew by to take the point. McGuire then took the boys to the wood shed, lapping all but the top five cars. As one facebook fan posted, "Josh McGuire drove like a madman possessed. He handed out an old fashioned sheddin' in the Super Late Model class and the track made for some crazy, exciting racing."
         In a masterful performance, McGuire more than half-tracked his nearest competitor Carrier, who had long-since passed Dohm for second. The only other victims not becoming McGuire's prey were fourth place Rod Conley and Ralph Withem. Conley blasted by Withem on the last lap to take fourth.
The centerpiece of Friday's racing was the heavy, fast track that saw cars broad sliding the high-banks in the mid-12-second range during the feature. The high speeds contributed to a higher level of attrition, but the quality of the racing was second to none. Nelson Freshour was the hard charger in the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models moving up seven positions from 17th to 10th.
         Rounding out the top ten were McGuire, Eddie Carrier, Jr.; Zach Dohm, Rod Conley, Ralph Withem, Chris Garnes, Freddie Carpenter, Harold Redman, Kevin Wagner, and Nelson Freshour.
Said McGuire in victory lane, "The key tonight was us making a little harder tire selection. I thought once the tire kicked in and we got some laps under our belts that we would have a good chance. We were a little loose at first, but once we went green flag racing and ran consecutive fast laps the car just took off."
         "Take off? Josh was just downright fast tonight," noted second place Carrier, Jr. "I had a pretty good car. The track roughed up a little in the middle, so I just wanted to run a straight line and not tear anything up."
         "The track got a little rough, but we were very fortunate to get to race tonight considering most every place else got rained out. You have to give Billy (Jarrell) and the track crew credit. I just tried to take care of my equipment, 'cause I got to race tomorrow night," laughed Carrier before accepting his second place hardware.
         Taking a deep breath and showing serious signs of fatigue, third place Zach Dohm noted, "I admit I'm beat. I chose a little too soft of tire and it hooked up too good and made me tight. The car would hardly turn left, so I had to go higher (on the track) to get the car to turn. We were so tight that we were up on two wheels most of the time and right now I am really beat. Congrats to Josh and Eddie on good runs."
         "I'd have liked to started first and finished first, but this is a good run against a great field."
Nick Corbitt took a scary flip after taking over a transfer spot in his qualifying heat. Airborne some 15-20 feet Corbitt landed right-side up, doing heavy damage to his car, but emerging only shaken. Lance Webb found a similar fate in the Sprint car feature with a slow roll-over on the back chute. He too was uninjured.
         The 25-lap OVSCA 410 sprint car feature was also a red-hot barnburner. Pole-sitter Aaron Higgins had a short-lived lead, yielding the top spot to two-time champion Jimmy Stinson. Stinson began to pull away from the rest of the pack as Higgins and Wayne McPeek sparred for second. Following a restart, McPeek challenged Stinson, but after scrubbing off some speed McPeek saw Stinson drive off into the sunset.
         Meanwhile, Greg Mitchell was strategically picking off cars in a high speed chase to the front. As Stinson approached traffic Mitchell began to close in on the leader at a rapid pace. On lap 12 the caution flew for Jesse McCreary who was in a top five slot after posting his second consecutive heat win.
Stinson pulled away on the restart, but Mitchell's cushion-riding mount was faster on the high side and blasted by Stinson two laps later. There Mitchell's Maxim #001 was indeed the class of the field as the former Skyline Late Model champ frantically searched for a smooth, fast line to his first-ever feature win.
         Stinson never recovered as Mitchell blasted on to the ever-popular win, where he was joined by a throng of fans in victory lane. Ironically, Mitchell's car donned a "For Sale" sign that he quickly removed after picking up the win.
         As Mitchell emerged from the cockpit, he let out an echoing victory yelp. "I attribute this win to Don Spiker. He has been with me for 14 years and all the time I've been in the sprint car," said the winning Mitchell. " I'm better on a heavier track and not as good on a dry slick. I was fortunate to get a good start and the car really hooked up. I thank Billy Jarrell for providing a great race track and thank God for the chance to race tonight. I have to thank the God's for sprinkling down some goodness on me tonight. It's a great, great night. "
         Josh Davis was the hard charger in the OVSCA Sprints moving up seven positions from 9th to 2nd. Davis broke a shock in the heat, but finished the race. In the feature the Chillicothe ace had newfound speed with all four wheels on the ground, overcoming hard charges from Wayne McPeek and making a late-race pass of Stinson. One of the best on-track battles was a Davis, Crabtree, McPeek Higgins battle over the duration of ten or so laps in the middle of the event.
         Rounding out the top ten were Mitchell, Josh Davis, Jimmy Stinson, Kory Crabtree, Wayne McPeek, Aaron Higgins, Nathan Skaggs, Dave Dickson, and Jesse McCreary.
A stacked field of some of open wheel's best drivers from three states highlighted the MALTA AMRA Modified racing card. Gary Long of Fredericksburg, VA made the long tow to Skyline only to get involved in an accident that sent him to the pits in the B-main.
         Heat winners were Mike McPherson, Chris Stotts, and Tyler Carpenter with Roy Roush picking up the B-main win. Chris Stotts got the initial jump, but after a lap one accident eliminated outside pole sitter McPherson, another number 8--the Shaw-Kryptonite Chassis #8 powered by owner Jerry Perine horsepower jumped into the lead and never looked back.
         Carpenter blitzed down the straight-aways and drove hard into the turns. Each lap he gained more of an advantage over the nearest competition with a blistering pace-setting explosion. Stotts and two-time National Champion Kenny Johnson challenged early, but there calls for number one went un-noticed.
Robert Garnes put his mount high against the fence in a barnstorming effort from sixth to second. At the midway point, it appeared that Garnes may have the fastest car, but as the race progressed Tyler pedaled away and on to victory.
         Johnson's drive stalled in second as his tires gave out allowing a hard-charging Jeremy Berwanger to shuffle the pair back to fourth and fifth. Berwanger was the hard charger in the Malta AMRA Modifieds moving up eight positions from 11th to 3rd.
Nick Corbitt had a good run into the top ten, while Brandon Barnhart cranked the #56 up for a great run ahead of Keenan, Brookover, and Smith. A lot of great racing took place back through the pack in a race that saw plenty of side-by-side action and fast laps on a track that was still super-sticky on night's end.
         Rounding out the top ten were Carpenter, Robert Garnes, Jeremy Berwanger, Chris Stotts, Kenny Johnson, Nick Corbitt, Brandon Barnhart, Clint Keenan, Jason Brookover, and Derrick Smith.
Said Carpenter, "Hammer Down"--"That was all you could do tonight. I owe everything to Jerry (Perine) He gives me what I need to be successful, so I thank him very, very much. The car hooked up really well on the bottom and I just stood on the gas and held on."
         Coleton Perine was the class of the mini-wedge field, claiming a big win over Zack Carr, Skylar Zimmerman, Cameron Roush, Coleman Evans, Austin Washburn, Aiden Powell, Lucas Shaw, Kasey Rankin, Nathan Drake, and Kalista Barnes.
         Next week July 27 Skyline hosts three-classes of Bicycle Racing for the kids with cash prizes going to the winners ! All kids are urged to bring their bikes for this great night of fun ages 0-14. Also, July 27 will mark the final leg of Skyline's "Six-Pack Points" package with I-77 Raceway.

Skyline Speedway Results  July 13, 2012  

Smith Again Skyline Sprint Victor
Mayle Manhandles AMRA Lates/Berwanger Best In MALTA Mods

By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO- It was a typical Friday the 13th, but the mythical gloom and doom couldn't overshadow the good racing at Skyline Speedway Friday night where Chillicothe, Ohio's Danny Smith out-foxed the competition in the 410 $1,500-to-win Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association outlaw sprint feature. Chesterhill, Ohio's Ronnie Mayle edged Fast Freddie Carpenter in the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Model Feature, and Jeremy Berwanger won his fifth Skyline AMRA Malta Modified main during the "Wix 100 Nights of Racing" event at the 3/8 mile Southern Ohio Speedplant. Cole Mayle won the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.
Although officially Danny Smith led every lap, the battle between the Danville, Indiana native and Mineral Wells, WV driver Wayne McPeek was a classic. Twice McPeek took the lead in turn two only to have Smith come back with a vengeance to lead at the start-finish line.
Due to the Century-mark temperatures over the past several days, some dust started to kick up on the speedway, but the conditions didn't hamper the on-track action. McPeek dogged Smith wildly over the first six laps and pulled up alongside the leader on several occasions.
McPeek actually took the lead the first time on lap seven, then Smith made a great comeback move to lead once again. McPeek continued his charge as Smith's mount became increasingly loose, while the West Virginia Invader entered the turns hard, but scrubbed off speed upon the exits.
Once again, McPeek got by Smith ever-so briefly and nearly clipped Smith's rear nerf on multiple occasions. A Nick Forcum spin brought out the caution on lap 15, tightening the field. McPeek gave chase once again.
All the while Josh Davis ran a strong third, but Greg Mitchell began to charge with Nathan Skaggs in tow. Davis fended off much of the field, but began to slow somewhat late in the race with Mitchell in third.
On lap 18 another restart bunched up the field. McPeek, Mitchell, Skaggs and Davis battled while all huddled under a blanket for a shot at second. When all was said and done Smith brought home his sixth Skyline win of the year. Rounding out the top ten were Danny Smith, Wayne McPeek, Nathan Skaggs, Greg Mitchell, Josh Davis, Eddie Slone, Jesse McCreary, Bob Tucker, Dave Dickson, and Nick Forcum. Jesse McCreary won the first heat and Smith won the dash.
After three attempts to get the Late Model feature underway, it was decided that the track would get some water. The result was a fast track and high quality late model main.
Not only was the track fast, but it was super fast, hammer-down style. Ronnie Mayle blasted into the early lead on the newly prepped track and for the early portions of the race was never seriously challenged. After a lap 14 caution for Corey Delancey who tangled with Chris Garnes, the contenders Freddie Carpenter, Andy Bond, and Larry Bond made it a three-way race with Larry Bond eventually taking over third.
Bond would exit a lap later with mechanical difficulties. Two circuits later Bob Adams, Jr. and Bub Crum made contact coming out of four. Crum throttled up under the rear quarters of Adams the length of the front chute, then Crum lost control and went headlong into traffic, where he was t-boned ultra-hard by Tony Roush. The hard hit continued as both cars pummeled hard into the turn one concrete, eliminating both Roush and Crum.
Another caution for debris with three laps to go set up a late race shoot -out between Mayle and Fast Freddie Carpenter. Tooth-and-nail, the high-speed chase continued flat-footed to the checkered. Mayle bobbled somewhat in turn one of the last lap, his only miscue in the 25-lapper, Carpenter took advantage and led by a car length coming out of two prompting Mayle to drive it in hard while playing catch-up going into three.
The cars came out of four side by side and raced to a photo finish with Mayle's Kryptonite Chassis / Malcuit powered machine carrying enough momentum to win by an inch at the finish.
Rounding out the top ten were Ronnie Mayle, Freddie Carpenter, Ralph Withem, Andy Bond, Nick Corbitt, Randy Arms, Bob Adams, Jr., Nelson Freshour, George Klintworth, and Chris Garnes.
Jeremy Berwanger, the Murray City Bandit, led from green to checkered in the lightning fast AMRA Malta Modified main event. Although Berwanger led the entire distance his task was not easy. Nick Corbitt did double duty in the lates and modifieds, doing a great job in each venue.
Berwanger withstood early challenges from Andy Bond, who later spun and went to the tail, then fought off a hard-charging Nick Corbitt and Roy Roush. Mike McPherson had a pair of great runs going but a couple bobbles dropped him back to tenth.
There McPherson fought back to third before scraping the turn two wall and breaking his suspension. Kenny Johnson, the defending AMRA Champion, moved from back in the pack to third before he too experienced mechanical woes.
That left Berwanger, Corbitt, and Roush to fight it out the last three laps with Berwanger taking his fifth win of the year. Rounding out the top ten were Jeremy Berwanger, Nick Corbitt, Roy Roush, Andy Bond, Jeremy Blake, Toby Roush, Jason Brooks, Gary Gould, Tyler Hendrix, and Mike McPherson.
Next week, July 20 is the Jack Shutts Memorial race, memorializing the longtime Skyline flagman and head scorer. July 27 is Bicycle Racing Night for the kids along with a winged Mini-wedge Special. Coming August 24 is a triple header of $3,000 to win races in all three Skyline classes. Details will be released soon.
The make-up date for the Greg Schilling Memorial Race will be Friday, September 7 in a race that pays $1,699 to win as part of a $17,000 purse for the AMRA Malta Modifieds.

June 29 Racing Rained out

Skaggs 'Skampers" to 1st Win  (Friday, June 22)
Roush Rambles in MALTA Main/Garnes Great in Tru-Tech Lates
By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO- Another great night of racing at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway saw two newcomers to victory lane-- Roy Roush, Tuppers Plains, Ohio in the Malta Windows AMRA Modifieds and Nathan Skaggs, Circleville, Ohio in the 410 Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 25-lap A-main. In the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Model main, Chris Garnes, Evans, West Virginia picked up his fifth Skyline win of the year, while Cole Mayle posted a last lap win over Coleton Perine. Overall, 67 cars in four classes saw competition.
In the torrid OVSCA 410 Outlaw sprint main, the competition was whetting its chops in the absence of Danny Smith, who hit the road for Speedweek competition. The Veteran Smith had won the last five consecutive OVSCA mains.
Friday night, it would be a different story as young motocross champ and second-year driver Nathan Skaggs took the lead from Josh Davis on lap four and never looked back in posting his first-ever 410 win. Davis was looking for the clean sweep after posting a fast time of 12:81 on the 3/8 mile bullring, then easily claiming the first heat victory. Davis looked to be good out of the gate, but after a lap three restart Skaggs' tires fired and the up-and-coming youngster took the lead then after a five-lap tango with Davis began to pull away from the pack.
Grafton, WV driver Andre Layfield and Wayne McPeek battled for the duration of the 25-lap affair with Layfield, up a couple positions from his starting slot anchoring down third. Dave Dickson and Aaron Higgins moved up three spots after a five-way battle with Kory Crabtree, Mark Imler and Wes McGlumphy. Lance Webb spun a great web of success with a solid run into the top ten.
As the race approached the 17-lap mark, Bob Tucker clipped an infield tire and brought out the race's second caution. Skaggs pulled away on the restart, but Davis tried to reel him in without success. Skaggs' Beasley Trucking GF-1 Chassis/Shaver Powered #2 blitzed onto victory and into victory lane for the very first time. McPeek-- the West Virginia Invader-- anchored down third over Layfield and a steady run by rookie Ryan Broughton.
Said Skaggs, "Me & Harold (Beasley) have been working on the slick tracks all year long & we experimented some tonight, got some bite off the turns and this GF-1 chassis really started working great."
The top ten were Skaggs, Davis, McPeek, Layfield, Broughton, Crabtree, Dave Dickson, Aaron Higgins, Lance Webb, and Wes McGlumphy. The hard charger in the sprints was Lance Webb moving up five positions from 14th to 9th.
Despite heavy attrition, the AMRA Late Model Feature was a dandy! South Parkersburg's Tyler Carpenter, "The Kamikaze Kid" overcame an early race caution to lead the first 14 laps. Eventual winner, Chris Garnes actually took the lead on the second circuit but a spin reverted the field back to the previous lap. Carpenter's car fired healthily off the wave of the green and resumed the lead just past the halfway point.
Both Carpenter and Garnes were good on the bottom. Garnes dogged Carpenter for several laps, trying to make a pass, only to have the caution fly for a spinning Bub Crum, who had the race of his late-model career going with a solid fourth place run. Fifth place Corey Conley was tabbed with the caution after getting called for making contact with Crum.
` Conley protested then went pitside with Crum back in fourth, followed by a high flying Fast Freddie Carpenter. Andy Bond had gone to the tail on the first lap and was on the move; Mike Martin had picked up five positions and Justin Powell advanced seven slots in great charges. Before going pitside Jason Gillian had advanced four spots.
When the race resumed with a do-over of lap thirteen, Carpenter and Garnes went side-by-side for three laps, then Garnes went by, and stretched out his lead for an uneventful win. Crum's fine run ended with a broken front suspension, dropping him from 4th to 11th. Tyler Mountain, WV driver Harold Redman, Jr. started third and finished third, repelling constant threats from Conley, Crum and Carpenter throughout the race.
Garnes, who earlier drove his first sprint race, said, "I'm beat. I got some good laps of seat time in the sprint, but I'm not used to this (double duty). He (Carpenter) had the line where I was fast and needed to be. It was just a matter of getting around. After the caution I knew I had to make my move. Once I got the line it was time to hold on."
Rounding out the top ten were Garnes, Tyler Carpenter, Harold Redman, Jr., Freddie Carpenter, Ronnie Mayle, Andy Bond, Ralph Withem, Mike Martin, Justin Powell, and Jason Gillian.
The hard charger in the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models was Andy Bond moving up eleven positions from 17th to sixth.
The Malta AMRA Modified main was a repeat of two weeks ago when Doug Henry won on a last lap pass of Roy Roush to win by inches. This time around the battled continued, only this time Roush would bring home the checkered flag in the Jimmy Owens Chassis/Caldwell Engines R2.
Always a clean, but hard charging racer, Henry tried everything he could in an effort to overtake Roush. A few weeks ago Roush felt a late race bobble may have cost him the race. This Friday, the veteran Roush was perfect at hitting his marks despite having his tires glaze over late in the race.
Henry had several good runs on the outside making a fiery two-wide battle at times. All the while, 4-time winner Jeremy Berwanger, the Murray City Bandit, made it a three-way battle in the early portions of the race. Late in the fire-fight Roush drifted high out of turn two twice and Henry dived low only to have Roush shut the door on what proved to be a very popular Skyline victory.
Tyler Carpenter, Andy Bond, and J.C. Casto shuffled around for position much of the race, but finished right where they started. Jeremy Blake charged into the top ten and picked up four positions to outs Mark Lunning, Jerad Willis, and Toby Roush. Kyle Bond finished out of the top ten but had a good run, advancing four spots and last week's winner Mike McPherson--up from the Consi--moved up five spots.
Rounding out the top ten were Roy Roush, Doug Henry, Jeremy Berwanger, Tyler Carpenter, Andy Bond, JC Casto, Jeremy Blake, Mark Luning, Jerrad Willis, and Toby Roush. The hard charger in the MALTA Windows AMRA Modifieds was Dusty Boley moving up six positions from 18th to 12th.
Noted the winner Roush, "I was just trying to hang on and get her through the rough. I knew Doug was back there and didn't want to make any mistakes. I got a little loose at the end, but I still had good forward bite. This Jimmy Owens Chassis has been just great for me...a real race changer."
Cole Mayle ousted early leader Coleton Perine on the last lap for the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge Main. Perine led nearly the entire run only to have lapped traffic factor into the out come. Rounding out the finish was Cole Mayle, Coleton Perine, Zach Carr, Coleman Evans, Austin Washburn, Skylar Zimmerman, Martin Gibson, Jr., Kasey Rankin, Kalista Barnes, and Corey Miller,
Next Friday, June 29 is the 4th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial featuring a $17,000 purse and $1,699 payday for the winner of the MALTA AMRA Road Warrior event. A "Kid's Gold Rush" is upcoming July 6th with a couple hundred dollars in coins up for grabs in a fun night for the youngsters.

Skyline Speedway Results June 15, 2012 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bond Blasts AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models
Smith Blitzs to OVSCA Sprint Win
McPherson First in Malta Windows Mods

By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO- It wasn't meant to be a full moon night, but the lunacy that is associated with the "full circle" of lunar gravitation made for some outstanding racing and last lap passes from the qualifying heats to the exciting feature events Friday night at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. 76 cars in four divisons packed the pits with Coolville, Ohio Veteran Andy Bond bringing home the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Model victory and another veteran Danny Smith, Chillicothe, Ohio bringing home the 410 Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association A-main event. In the Malta Windows and Doors AMRA Modified Main, the Millfield Missile Mike McPherson registered his first-ever feature win. Cole Mayle, the 2011 champ in the WRA claimed the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.
Four of the night's six heat races went right down to the wire and were won on last lap passes on a track that was both tough and tricky according to the winners during victory lane interviews. Never-the-less, track conditions made for some high speeds and high quality racing from the front of the pack and throughout the entire field in all three feature events.
Two-time Champion and four-time feature winner Chris Garnes (Evans, WV) and veteran Ralph Withem paced the field to the initial green flag in the $1,500 to win 25-lap AMRA Late Model main event. Withem's mount spun in turn two of the first go-round and collected several cars including the K-C 44 of K-C Burdette who went airborne in a wild ride down the backchute. Burdette remained upright but his mount was badly damaged and out of action for the restart. With Withem whistled for the spin, Ronnie Mayle, Chesterhill, OH flanked Garnes on the front row.
The firestorm erupted with six cars two deep scrambling for the lead. Garnes emerged the leader of lap one, but Mayle worked the inside to lead lap two. Fast Freddie Carpenter turned on the afterburners to pass both leaders on the third circuit, then Mayle came back to lead the next two laps in what proved to be one of the greatest feature starts in recent times.
Andy Bond became the fourth different leader, blasting through the tacky turn one surface, then gliding high with a wave of momentum down the backchute and by the low-riding Mayle. Bond would lead the next 19 laps, but the drama didn't end there.
Garnes recovered to pass Mayle on lap eight then began to track down the ultra, high-flying Bond. Bond's #01 Rayburn was well-equipped for the hard ride the veteran gave his mount. Bucking through turns one and two then three-wheeling through turns three and four, Bond was on a mission. Garnes, however, is known for his late race surges. Friday he didn't disappoint anyone making a late race bid on Bond and forcing a dualing hand in the final five laps.
Garnes pulled along side Bond on the two-lap signal, but Bond milked an extra wave of power from his Ernie Hoschar-owned Machine powered by a Watson-Ruppel powerplant. Garnes again challenged but Bond rode out the momentum and threading the needle between three lapped cars to claim the ever-close win at the finish. The last lap blast through traffic was the life saver for Bond, who fended off the feisty Garnes.
"The track wasn't ideal tonight, but its good if you win," smiled Bond in victory lane. "This Rayburn likes it rough," laughed Bond. "Tonight it was just a matter of survival and being in the right place at the right time. Thanks to Ernie and my family and crew for helping me get to victory lane. Paul Wilmouth built us a great set of shocks and so far so good. It's great to be back here tonight in victory lane."
Rounding out the top ten were Bond, Garnes, Mayle, Freddie Carpenter, Kenney Newhouse, Bobby Adams, Jr., Jeff Burdette, Bub Crum, Ralph Withem, and Colten Burdette. Veteran Adams had his best run of the year, a very competitive sixth place finish. Jeff Burdette and Bub Crum also had great runs, but the talk of the race was the barnstorming effort of Kenney Newhouse. Newhouse was the hard charger in the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models moving up nine positions from 17th to 5th. Withem had an equally impressive run back into the top ten after moving to the tail. The race was run in just over 12 minutes.
Some things never change, and that is something that Danny Smith likes. The former World of Outlaw star and multi-time track champion at various venues around the nation was again the class of the OVSCA sprint car field. For Smith of Chillicothe, it was his fifth Skyline Speedway win and third in a row in the potent OVSCA sprint series.
Smith's Maxim/Coors Light/Kears/JD Engines powered #4 started on the pole as a result of a last lap pass of Aaron Higgins in the qualifying heat race. Smith and Nathan Skaggs paced the field to the green with Smith narrowly taking the lead into turn one. Skaggs hung close for a couple laps then Higgins made it a three-way race before Smith began to stretch out the lead.
Smith was dominant from the fifth lap on in the green-to-checkered run, lapping several cars multiple times and lapping all cars up to fourth place finisher Jimmy Stinson. Local fans have had the luxury of having such an opportunity to watch one of the all-time greats behind the wheel, sawing on the wheel with uncanny precision.
Higgins and Skaggs had runs worthy of a win, but despite their awesome efforts, they had to settle for second and third respectively. Rounding out the top ten were Smith, Higgins, Skaggs, Jimmy Stinson, Kory Crabtree, Wes McGlumphy, Dave Dickson, Josh Davis, Greg Mitchell, and Brian Benson. For much of the race Crabtree, McGlumphy, Dickson, Davis and Mitchell battled for a shot at fifth, sometimes zooming three abreast around the Skyline high banks. Brian Benson was the hard charger in the sprints moving up five positions from 15th to 10th. The torrid race lasted six minutes and 12 seconds.
Breathing in an extra gulp of air and with a sigh of relief, Smith acknowledged, "This was tough! It was a demanding track tonight...a little different than what we are used to. We had it loose enough to run through the tacky parts and tight enough to run through the slick. Tonight experience paid off."
The Malta Windows AMRA Modified main was once again a dandy. Mike McPherson and Vince Conrad paced the field to the initial unfurled green flag with McPherson taking the lap one lead. He too led the second round but had to withstand pressure from Roy Roush on one flank and Vince Conrad on the other. Conrad led the next circuit after both he and Roush passed the RV1 after a slight bobble. Two-time defending National champ Kenny Johnson moved into second on lap four, but McPherson recovered the position as Roush and Conrad fought it out side-by side through lap eleven when Conrad once again grabbed the lead.
Johnson suffered front end damage and went pitside, on lap 13 just after Conrad led his second lap. On the 14th circuit, the Mad-dog Racing/Millfield Missile blasted into the lead as he and Conrad jockeyed for the top spot to the finish. Roush's mount suffered suspension damage and also went pitside after dropping back to fourth on lap 14.
Known for his late-race heroics Jeremy Blake came on strong at the finish, storming from 7th to second. Throughout the night Jeremy Berwanger charged between second and fifth, finally nestling into fourth on the checkered flag and ousting last week's winner Doug Henry for position.
Rounding out the top ten were McPherson, Blake, Conrad, Berwanger, Henry, Clint Keenan, Robbie Evans, Rick Venham, Frankie Roush, and Gary Gould. Dusty Boley came from the last row to 11th in a good run, while newcomer Clint Keenan had a great top ten run. Other notables putting on a show were Venham, F. Roush, and Gary Gould.
Robbie Evans was the hard charger in the MALTA Windows AMRA Modifieds moving up ten positions from 17th to 7th.
McPherson said, "I messed up in the first part of the race, then just sort of bided my time. I knew where I wanted to run by watching Andy Bond in the Late Model feature, but missed my marks a few times. When Andy went by (in the modified) feature I started hitting my marks and the car took off."
"I was good in turn two and could carry some momentum, but had to hold the bottom off 3 and four. This Swartz Chassis really started hooking up when I got up in the seat and up on the wheel. Once I got the lead I wasn't going to give it up," concluded the elated McPherson who was swarmed with fans in a warming victory lane celebration.
McPherson gave much credit to his Swartz Chassis with a Griff Engine under the hood.
McPherson also dedicated his first feature victory to his Dad, who passed away last summer. "This win was for Dad. Thanks to Swartz Race Cars and to my family, my crew, and my fans.
Cole Mayle won the mini-wedge main. Rounding out the top ten were Mayle, Austin Washburn, Skylar Zimmerman, Coleman Evans, Samantha Roush, Lucas Shaw, Aiden Powell, Tanner Martin, Kalista Barnes, and Cale Stinson.
Coming June 29 is the 4th Annual Greg Schilling Memorial race paying $1,699 to win and $199 to start as part of a whopping $17,000 purse for the Malta AMRA Modifieds. Also coming is the July 6th Kids Gold Rush and Bicycle Races for the kids on Friday, July 27.

at the fast Skyline Speedway. The following week, May 11 was the first "Six-Pack"
event for the Modifieds at Skyline.
This year's "Six-Pack" point fund will pay $1,000 to the winner, $600
for second, and $400 for third in the late models. Point money will be paid
at the end or the year for the series. In the modified division, the winner
will receive $600, $400, and $200. Additionally, each track will host a
season-long point fund.
Jarrell at Skyline will continue the tradition of giving each series
winner of Late Models, Modifieds, and Sprints a chassis for winning the
season points at Skyline line in addition to over $15,000 in prizes and
contingencies to the top competitors.

Henry Wins Malta Mods by a Nose
Smith and Garnes Repeat Winners

By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO- Doug Henry and Roy Roush saved the best for last. Henry, the defending Malta Windows AMRA Road Warrior champion fought tooth-and-nail for twenty laps with Roush to win by no more than six inches in the exciting Malta Modified feature event Friday night at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway, where a solid crowd hung around to cheer both drivers as they made a cool off lap. Chris Garnes took the 25 lap Tru-Tech Customs AMRA Super Late Model main and veteran Danny Smith grabbed his fourth Skyline Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410 sprint win. Zach Carr claimed the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main. 80 cars poured into the pits in four classes.
The Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association (OVSCA) 410 Sprinters on Hoosier Tires saw heat winners Danny Smith and Dave Dickson pace the field to the green flag. Smith and Dickson pulled away from the field with a torrid dual developing between Josh Davis and Kory Crabtree for third place. That duo raged wildly, swapping passes regularly for nearly 23 laps. By lap 16, Smith had distanced himself from Dickson by a straight-away.
Smith, the crafty veteran worked traffic to perfection in his JD Powered Maxim #4. Dickson was equally persistent and ran a solid second well ahead of the rest of the campaign. Davis and Crabtree continued to spar, then Nathan Skaggs joined the fray and made it a three-way race for third.
On lap 23 Jesse McCreary, amid the front-runners, snagged an infield tire and brought out the only caution of the race. After several caution laps, tires began to glaze over, staging what made for an exciting finish. Davis, who had anchored third at this juncture, fired fast out of the gate, while Dickson and Smith struggled to get their tires to fire.
Davis bagged Dickson and pulled alongside Smith exiting turn two. Smith led by a car length at the white flag, forcing Davis to make a move. Davis drove it in defiantly hard past Smith on the outside of turn one, but his surge carried him high and scrubbed off the momentum necessary to make the pass stick. Davis recovered but a turn four challenge fell short as Smith picked up his fourth Skyline win of the year. This win comes on the heels of a record setting win and time trial at I-77 Raceway Park where Smith set a new track record of 11:02.
Jimmy Stinson came on late in the race for a top five. Wes McGlumphy and Greg Mitchell each posted strong top ten runs as well.
Rounding out the top ten were Smith, Davis, Dickson, Crabtree, Stinson, Skaggs, McGlumphy, Greg Mitchell, Brian Benson, and Lance Webb. Stinson was the hard charger for the sprints moving up 5 positions from 10th to 5th. Josh Davis set fast time of 13:89.
Two young chargers set the stage for the plot of the dramatic AMRA Late Model main. K-C Burdette jumped into the early lead following a first lap caution that set up a complete restart. Burdette again blasted into the lead over Chris Garnes.
Burdette and Garnes had a racy game of cat-and-mouse, while Tony Roush and Frankie Hall had an impressive side-by-side battle for third. Both strong early, Roush and Hall gradually fell off the pace just past the halfway mark. Ralph Withem stoked the Coals of his Swartz Chassis to claim third, while Andy Bond, Freddie Carpenter, Travis Brookover, Jeff Burdette, and Tony Roush went three and four wide trying to leap-frog into the top ten. Burdette and Brookover both blasted up through the pack in solid runs, while Eric Francis masterminded a great run of his own.
Just past the halfway point Garnes settled into his groove and began to pick up the pace. On lap 17 Garnes won a side-by-side two lap dash to the point, then never looked back. Burdette came within striking distance on the final lap, but 'No Fear' Garnes had the momentum to win by several car lengths. Eric Francis was the hard charger for the late models moving up 6 positions from 18th to 12th.
Rounding out the top ten were Garnes, KC Burdette, Withem, Andy Bond, Freddie Carpenter, Travis Brookover, Jeff Burdette, Tony Roush, Frankie Hall, and Ronnie Mayle. Tyler Carpenter set fast time at 15:03.
The modified main was the race of the night. From the get-go Doug Henry took the lead. Henry led by about three car lengths before Roush reeled him in to initiate a race-long battle that brought the fans to their feet. Barring a mid-race pair of laps that Henry led by a couple car lengths, the race was a close, good old-fashioned paint-trading battle royal. Roush actually led lap five of the charge.
On lap nine Jeremy Berwanger made contact with another car was whistled for the caution. From the tail Berwanger went on an adrenaline laced mission to the top five. Much to the delight of the crowd Tyler Carpenter and Jeremy Blake mirrored the close battle of the two leaders. First Blake, then Carpenter and back and forth the teeter tottered. Aaron Pendleton and Andy Bond fought hard for a top five until Berwanger raged between the combatants to slow their progression. Rick Venham, Jr. had been in the mix, but started to fade late in the race, knocking that charger from one of his best finishes of the year. Frankie Roush blasted into the top ten with Vince Conrad at his heels.
Henry hugged the bottom and Roush went one groove up, often passing Henry going into turn one only to have Henry pull him off turn two. During the last several laps both leaders crossed the line in near dead heats. On the final lap Roush was picture perfect in maintaining momentum through the apex of turn two for a great run into three. Roush blasted by Henry cut low, but the anchor didn't hold him around the inside rail, narrowly giving Henry an open door run off turn four to the ever so close photo finish victory.
The Modified hard charger was Frankie Roush who blasted from 16th to 7th in one of the most harrowing rides of the night. Berwanger had an equally impressive run from the tail of the pack to fifth after a lap nine spin.
Rounding out the top ten were Henry, Roy Roush, Carpenter, Blake, Berwanger, Andy Bond, Frankie Roush, Aaron Pendleton, Vince Conrad, Rick Venham, Jr., and Dusty Boley.
The 17-car mini-wedge field, one of the largest ever at Skyline, saw Zach Carr, Cole Mayle, Colten Perine, and Samantha Roush put on a great show. Carr and Mayle had a race similar to the modified main, only on a smaller scale. Carr and Mayle raced nose-to-nose out of turn four on the last go-round only to have Carr win by a nose at the finish. Rounding out the top ten were Carr, Cole Mayle, Colten Perine, Samantha Roush, Caleb Brigs, Tiffany Jackson, Aiden Powell, Tanner Martin, Kasey Rankin, and Kalista Barnes.

Montgomery Pushed to Victory in AMRA Lates
Smith Smites OVSCA Sprints/ Berwanger Wallops AMRA Malta Mods

Skyline Speedway Results   May 25, 2012
By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-A racy track and a field of 74 cars in four classes set the back drop for one of the most prolific finishes in Skyline Speeway history Friday night when Jason Montgomery, Jackson, Ohio and Chris Garnes tangled at the flag stand, sending both cars in to a wild spin into turns one and two. Montgomery picked up the win in the exciting AMRA Tru-Tech Late Model finale, while veteran Danny Smith, Chillicothe, Ohio claimed the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association main, and Jeremy Berwanger picked up his fourth Skyline AMRA Malta Windows Modified feature win.
In what looked to be just another day at the races, fast timer Andy Bond set the pace in the AMRA Late Model main, grabbing the early lead over two-time defending champion Chris Garnes. Garnes led through lap eight when the race's second caution flew. Bond was at his side waiting for the opportunity, but on the restart Garnes began a march to a semi-comfortable lead.
Bond and Jason Montgomery thrashed the highbanks for a shot at second, swapping positions regularly to lap eleven when Mongomery took over second for good. The Jackson Ironman pursued the leader Garnes with a vengeance and began to reel him in when a caution waved for Eric Foster and lap 18. Montgomery and Garnes then went center stage as Montgomery staged a slide job for the top spot. Garnes repelled the assault as the two grappled for the same section of the Skyline red clay.
The eventual winner in his Estes/Montgomery Machine/Rocket #21 passed Garnes on lap twenty three but Garnes regained the spot; Montgomery did a power slide to resume the lead, but Garnes again countered only to have Racin' Jason blast off turn four for the lead on lap 24. All the while both drivers exchanged paint with Garnes trying the cross over on the back chute, only to be denied. Garnes went high; Montgomery low coming out of four where the #21 tailed out and Garnes looked for room to make the pass only to drive under Montgomery's quarters locking both cars together, and ingniting a wild and wooly melee that scattered flying sheet metal and plastic amid the two wildly spinning cars.
Locked together as one as the high-speed spin untangled, both cars broke free for separate wild, spiraling rides near the concrete retaining wall.
The up-front dramatics overshadowed Bond's great ride, and solid performances from Freddie Carpenter and Ralph Withem. Colten Burdette had to go pitside after running in the top five much of the race, while Dad Jeff Burdette came on strong late to thwart good runs from Kevin Layne and Dan Morrison.
Behind Montgomery and Garnes were Andy Bond, Freddie Carpenter, Ralph Withem, Jeff Burdette, Kevin Layne, Dan Morrison, Mike McPherson, and Justin Powell. Jeff Burdette was the hard charger in the late models moving up 6 positions from 12th to 6th.
The OVSCA 410 Outlaw sprint feature was a good one, but less melodramatic than the opening Late Model main. At a ground shaking, torrid pace, the race went green-to-checkered. Going into turn one Jimmy Nier, Piketon, OH blasted into the lead, then Aaron Higgins bicycled through the middle of the turn with Smith down low in an daunting 3-wide battle.
Nier made a run on Smith going into turn three, but from that point on Smith throttled up to overdrive and charged on to the non-stop win. Nier, Jimmy Stinson, Andre Layfield, and Higgins fought for position with Wayne McPeek, who later went pitside with mechanical woes. Josh Davis and Nathan Skaggs had a race-long battle with Kory Crabtree and Dave Dickson. Late in the race, both Crabtree and Skaggs charged forward, knocking Davis out of the frey and shuffling the earlier contender Layfield back two positions.
Nier pulled within striking distance a couple of times, however, Smith flexed his muscle in the Coors Light Gang Maxim #4 and blasted on to the win. Rounding out the top ten were Smith, Jimmy Nier, Aaron Higgins, Jimmy Stinson, Kory Crabtree, Nathan Skaggs, Andre Layfield, Josh Davis, Dave Dickson, and Lance Webb.
Nathan Skaggs was the Hard charger in the sprints moving up 3 positions from 9th to 6th. Jimmy Stinson blistered the red-clay highbanks with a scorching 12:16 fast time.
In the AMRA Malta Windows Modified main by Hoosier Tires, Jeremy Berwanger clung to the gift that keeps on giving. Leading all 20 laps, Berwanger rocketed to victory lane--a place he has called home four times this season including a Road Warrior $2,000 to win race a couple weeks ago.
For a while, Berwanger--The Murray City Bandit-- was flanked two car-lengths back by Robbie Evans and Andy Bond. Evans and Bond raced hard for over half the race--Evans hugging the inside groove and Bond high and on the throttle in the upper groove. Bond took over second on the 12th circuit, just about the time that Jeremy Blake kicked his mount up a notch. Blake began a charge to the front, eclipsing huge chunks of turf that he had surrendered earlier in the race.
Blake got by Evans for third, all the while that Mike McPherson, Dusty Boley, and Aaron Pendleton put on one of the best passing shows of the night. Boley took the point in the early stages and McPherson and Pendleton exchanged positions nearly every lap. McPherson then nabbed Boley, setting into play a battle between those chargers. Pendleton moved by Boley, but Boley leap-frogged back ahead of the young Jackson, OH charger. Kurt Stacy drove a consistent race and made a late race drive that helped him preserve a share of hard-charger honors.
At the end it was the winning Berwanger followed by Andy Bond, Jeremy Blake, Robbie Evans, Mike McPherson, Dusty Boley, Aaron Pendelton, Jeremy Roush, Curt Stacy, and veteran Bob Adams, Jr. Hard chargers in the modifieds moving up 4th positions each were Andy Bond from 6th to 2nd, Jeremy Blake from 7th to 3rd, Curt Stacy from 13th to 9th, and Tyler Evans from 16th to 12th. Young Tyler Evans won the B-main, his first victory in a full-blown V-8.

Burdette Doubles in AMRA Supers and Semi’s
Malta Mods to Henry/ OVSCA Sprints to Broughton
By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-A beautiful spring night and 90 cars in five classes entertained the large crowd at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night where rookie Ryan Broughton, Chillicothe, Ohio area driver claimed the tantalizing twenty-five lap Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association (OVSCA) 410 sprint car main. K-C Burdette, Parkersburg, WV became the second straight GM Crate Engine to win a Super Late model win in the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models, while veteran Doug Henry, Beverly, OH grabbed the Malta Windows AMRA Modified main, Burdette took the Semi Late main, and Cole Mayle won the Mike's Auto Body mini-wedge main.

        Just like last week young Ryan Broughton jumped into the early lead in the OVSCA main. Broughton vaulted into the initial lead over veteran Jimmy Nier of Piketon, OH.  On the third lap Jeff Conrad slammed the third turn wall, but was uninjured. Broughton, who led over half the race last week, went green-to-checkered this week for the huge win over a veteran field.
          At the ten lap mark, Nathan Skaggs, another up-and-coming driver, put a slide job on Nier for third. That came five laps after Dave Dickson grabbed second from Nier in a drag race into turn one.
         Unlike last week when the master Danny Smith played a game of cat-and-mouse with Broughton, the young terror showed much poise in working the traffic and charging on to the win. Dickson won a tight battle for second over Skaggs, while Jimmy Stinson and Aaron Higgins worked their way into the top five .
         Up from the mini-sprints, the twenty-year old charger and son of former chauffeur Tony Broughton was elated in victory lane after his first ever 410 win. 
           "We are learning each time out and we are pretty good on these slick tracks," said Broughton.  "It means so much to get this win, especially for my Dad--he makes this car work. Sometimes we are out to lunch on the tacky tracks, but tonight this was my kind of racing. Thanks to everyone who made this win possible."
          Broughton's George Fisher GF-1 Chassis/ HG Fisher powered 22 was the class of the field, lapping cars into the top ten and winning by nearly a half track.
          Behind Broughton and rounding out the top ten were Dickson, Nathan Skaggs, Aaron Higgins, Jimmy Stinson, Jimmy Nier, Wayne McPeek, Brian Benson, Josh Davis, and Eric Martin.
         The hard charger was Wayne McPeek in a 13th to 6th place run.
          K-C Burdette led nearly every lap officially in a torrid 6 minute and 59-second flag-to-flag win over defending champion Chris Garnes.  Spinning a web of deceit and stealth-like precision, Garnes baited Burdette for a shot at the victory.
      Burdette's Rayburn chassis/GM Crate Engine powered Burdette Construction -Milhone Motorsports KC 44 actually fell to second to Garnes on the turn one entry, but a lap later, Burdette --with sparks flying off the back chute wall-- recovered to again reclaim the lead with two laps to go. Garnes made another run but fell short by a car length at the finish.
     

 

           "We worked on the car all night long to make it better and had it where we wanted by feature time,” said a happy Burdette.  “I knew I had a pretty good lead , then Chris (Garnes) closed the gap pretty quick in traffic.  I knew when he got up there that I had to tighten it down and run my own race."
      The AMRA Late Model racing at Skyline continues to be a who’s-who of stock car racing.  Also, having great runs were former champ Jason Montgomery, Colten Burdette, and the Carpenter boys.  Champions from around the area and former Skyline champs flanked the top ten of Burdette, Garnes, Jason Montgomery, Colten Burdette, Chris Carpenter, Tyler Carpenter, Ralph Withem, Nick Dohm, Freddie Carpenter, and Andy Bond. The hard charger was Ronnie Mayle in a 15th to 11th run.

      In the drama-filled AMRA Malta Windows Modified main,  wheelman Shawn Donahue , the first heat winner, took the initial lead for four laps, then went three wide with Roy Roush and Doug Henry. The three-way battle continued with Roush leading laps five through seven, when Henry took over and charged on to victory.

      Late in the race 3-time winner Jeremy Berwanger and Tyler Carpenter charged to the front, then duelled to the finish.  Berwanger finally anchored down the position. Henry's Swartz chassis-Henry powered Chevrolet blasted on to the popular victory. Roush settled for fourth and Donahue fifth as both consistently posted fast lap times.

            The top ten were  Henry,  Berwanger, Tyler Carpenter,   Roush, Shawn Donahue, Jeremy Blake, Dusty Boley, Andy Bond, Ryan Stoops, and Mike McPherson. The hard charger of the race was Blake in a 16th to 6th place run.

 

      "The key to the win was my crew just working their butts off on this car. We changed about everything on this car but the kitchen sink,” laughed Henry. “But tonight it really come to life." 

      Delbert Bub Crum took the lead in the steel block semi-late , but quickly was reeled in by Frankie Hall, who held off double-duty KC Burdette and Crum for most of the race.  Hall survived a late race caution for hard charging Jason Gillian who slammed the front stretch wall. Then out of the blue KC Burdette hit turbo charge and blasted past hall on the 17th circuit and on to the win.
     
        Behind the winning Burdette were Hall, Bub Crum, T.J. Roush, Brian Daniels, Joe Bowie, Doug Wriston, Chris Parks, Jason Gillian, and Pete Crum. The hard charger was Joe Bowie in a 11th to 6th place run.

      Picking up where he left off last year, Cole Mayle picked up the Mike’s Auto Body Mini-Wedge main.  The top runners were Cole Mayle, Skylar Zimmerman, Austin Washburn, Madison Martin, Samantha Roush, Martin Gibson, Jr., Coleman Evans, Curstin Giffin, and Tanner Martin.

          Skyline will host another big show next Friday, May 25.  For more information please  visit  << www.skylinespeedway.net  >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 11, 2012
Smith Doubles in OVSCA Sprints
Garnes Grabs 3rd LM Main/Dohm Dominate in Nightcap
Berwanger Blitzs Road Warriors/Stotts Stomps Malta Mods/Burdette Best In Semi’s

 

STEWART, OHIO-Oh what a Night! Seven features on a fast Friday at Skyline Speedway. Former American Motor Racing Association champion Jeremy Berwanger, the Murray City Bandit, outlasted the constant challenges of veterans Andy Bond and Kenny Johnson to claim the hefty $2,000 to win Malta Windows AMRA Road Warrior Challenge event at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night.
                Danny Smith, Chillicothe, Ohio was the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association make-up feature winner and Chris Garnes, Evans, WV claimed the Tru-Tech AMRA late Model victory. Smith doubled in the sprints after a gallant battle with Ryan Broughton in the nightcap, while young Nick Dohm, Cross Lanes, WV brought home his first-ever Super Late Model win in the AMRA LM division, Chris Stotts, Athens, Ohio claimed the Malta Modified feature, and K.C. Burdette bested the field of Steel Block semi-lates.
                Perhaps one of the closest races of the night was the flag to flag 30-lap, Malta Windows AMRA Road Warrior Challenge feature. Defending two-time National Champion Kenny Johnson, Mineral Wells, WV led the first two laps, then Jeremy Berwanger edged by on the next circuit. For the next fifteen laps Berwanger and Johnson went side-by-side, tooth-and-nail in what proved to be an exciting race for the full house of fiery fans.
                Johnson scrubbed off some speed in an effort to cleanly pass a lapped car on lap 18, leaving the fight for second between the defending champ and Skyline champion Andy Bond, Coolville, Ohio.
                That race was a barnburner until Johnson’s tires faded and Bond started to hook up on the thread of moisture on the bottom. Bond closed the gap somewhat, but Berwanger’s masterful work in traffic made it an eight car length lead at the finish ahead of Bond and Johnson.
                Much action took place throughout the field. Although passing was at a premium, up-and-coming Nick Carr was the hard charger in a 17th to 11th run. The field was dotted with a who’s who of modified racers as nine of the top ten drivers have been track champions over the past several years.
                A four way tango of Doug Henry, the defending RWT champ, Matt Holcomb the 2010 champ, Robbie Evans, and Mike “Bird” Wilson was just as impressive as the run for the lead. At the point Berwanger’s Lightning/Lloyd Racing Engines #44 began to stretch it out for the win.

                Rounding out the top ten were Berwanger, Andy Bond, Kenny Johnson, Doug Henry, Matt Holcomb, Robbie Evans, Mike Wilson, Roy Roush, Jeremy Blake, and Rick Venham, Jr..
                Said Berwanger in victory lane, “Wow, this car has just been awesome. This was a big win for us, one of my biggest career wins. The AMRA went all out tonight. $2,000 is a lot of money (laughing). I had a pretty good car under me tonight and that Billy Lloyd engine really got me off the turns.”
                “Thanks to Charles (Faires), my Dad, my family and my crew for putting a great car under me.”
Second place Andy Bond noted, “We didn’t have enough gear and that caused the tire to glaze over. I just couldn’t keep it spinning enough to keep heat in it.”
                “Kenny and I had a good race going and I made a little run on Jeremy, but I really had to romp on it to keep that right rear to fire,” Bond added. “Second place isn’t bad though.”
                “We got a good start and once Jeremy was able to get under me I had to move up the track to keep my momentum going,” said an enthusiastic yet disappointed Johnson.
                “I worked the right rear just a little too hard a little too early, and just didn’t have enough at the end,” said the multi-time AMRA Champion.
                In the make-up twenty-five lap OVSCA sprint car feature, Danny Smith led flag to flag in a run-away over Andre Layfield. The veteran was again masterful as the original outlaw blasted around all parts of the challenging 3/8mile oval. Once in the lead, Smith totally dominated for the win.
Rounding out the top ten were Smith, Layfield, Jimmy Stinson, Wayne McPeek, Ryan Broughton, Dave Dickson, Josh Davis, Kory Crabtree, Greg Mitchell, and Eric Martin. The hard charger of the race was “Fine Wine”—‘getting better with age’-- Dave Dickson who shot from ninth to sixth.
                Chris Garnes, Evans, WV had the field covered in the 25-lap AMRA Tru-Tech Customs late model main, but following a caution on the 22nd lap, veteran Andy Bond gave Garnes a little scare. The excitement was short-lived as Garnes once again found his groove and throttled on to an easy win.
K-C Burdette came on strong as did LM Rookie Mike McPherson, who seems well at home in the Curtis C53 . Burdette passed Ralph Withem on the next-to-last lap for third, while McPherson nailed down fifth.
                The hard charger was youngster Nick Dohm who powered from 14th to 6th on what was a tricky track to pass on. Behind winning Garnes was Andy Bond, KC Burdette, Ralph Withem, Mike McPherson, Nick Dohm, Dan Morrison, Ronnie Mayle, Freddie Carpenter, and Anthony Huber.
Highlights of the heat racing included Rookie Ryan Broughton claiming his first- ever 410 sprint win. Up from the mini-wedges a year ago, youngster Jason Gillian claimed a heat win in the Steel Block Late Model/Semi Late heat.

                In the regularly scheduled OVSCA sprint main Ryan Broughton showed the poise of a veteran as the pole sitter rambled side by side with Andre Layfield for the first five laps. Broughton held a slight edge until Jimmy Stinson dropped off the back-chute and averted the end of the pit chute wall.

                On the restart Broughton shot into the lead by a wide margin. As the field came around for lap eight, Layfield slowed to bring out the race’s second caution, putting Danny Smith on young Broughton’s rear nerf. Broughton pulled away, but as the pair approached lapped traffic, Smith's expertise kicked into gear.
                Smith took the lead on lap 18 and zoomed on to his second win of the night in his Maxim/JD Engines/Coors Light Gang #4.
                The crafty Smith credited the night's second win to "patience", saying "The kid in the 22 did a great job. I think traffic started getting to him just a little, and I had the advantage of being in second and seeing what I needed to do. I just waited for the right moment. The car was good and thanks to everyone for coming out tonight."
                Adam Strausser was the hard charger in a 14th to ninth place run into the top ten. Behind second place Broughton were Dave Dickson, Kory Crabtree, Josh Davis, Wayne McPeek, Jimmy Nier, Jimmy Stinson, and Adam Strausser.
                Youngster Nick Dohm in his 525 GM Crate Engine/Rocket Chassis and Ralph Withem paced the field of the night's second AMRA LM feature. Dohm had the slight advantage when the caution flew on lap two, stringing out the field in single file.

                Following another caution, Dohm, who had built up a big lead, had to restart the field once again. Dohm led comfortably by three car length’s until lap nineteen when Garnes and Withem engaged in a torrid battle.

                As Garnes pressed Withem, the duo both picked up the pace, catching the young Dohm and passing him on the 23rd lap. With Dohm in third now, another caution flew. Dohm was relegated to the lead after scorers reverted back to the last completed lap. Under intense pressure from both Withem and Garnes, Dohm surged on for the win.

                “The key to the win was the caution,” said Dohm as he breathed a sigh of relief. “Another key was all the help I get from my dad. We changed the car after the first feature then didn't touch it the rest of the night and it worked perfectly.”

                Anthony Huber was the hard charger in a 16th to 10th run. Behind Dohm was Chris Garnes, Ralph Withem, Chris Carpenter, Andy Bond, Colten Burdette, Freddie Carpenter, Ronnie Mayle, Brian Eaton, and Anthony Huber.

                In the Malta Windows AMRA Modified main, Chris Stotts raced into another galaxy far ahead of his nearest competitors. With Stotts at the helm of the high speed freight train, the race ran green-to-checkered in less than six minutes.
                While Jeremy Blake, Kenny Johnson, Andy Bond, Jeremy Berwanger, and Roy Roush trundled for position, Stott's Swartz/ Roush-Yates/Carthage Auto Parts S-8 rolled on to the easy win. The hard charger of the race was Robbie Evans in a 15th to 11th run.
Behind Stotts, was Jeremy Blake, Kenny Johnson, Andy Bond, Jeremy Berwanger, Roy Roush, Jason Brooks, Brian Whiteman, Doug Henry, and Matt Holcomb.
                KC Burdette jumped into the early lead in the Steel Block Late Model main and brought home the victory over Bub Crum, Jeff Burdette, Jason Gillian, Frankie Hall, T.J. Roush, Matt Kussmaul, Roy Dodson, James Joy, Rodney Gibson, Pete Crum, and Nelson Freshour.
                All action was completed just after 11:30, including a complete program and seven features overall—a great credit to the Skyline crew and staff. Skyline will return to action next Friday, May 18 with four exciting classes.

Double Features all 3 divisions plus *Steel Blocks (new rule)

$2,000 to win in Malta Mods 

Skyline To Run Double Features May 11
Action Packed Night of Racing for Regular Admission
May 4 Program Declared Complete Program

STEWART, OHIO-Many fans expressed concerns of the potential "Late Night Hour" for this week's super action-packed night of racing May 11 at Skyline Speedway, where fans can see double features in all divisions. In an effort to get fans and drivers home at a decent hour, there will be no qualifications in any division for the second show. Line-ups will go by pill draw. The May 4 features are all locked in except for the Late Model main.

     After declaring the program complete for Friday, May 4, Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway will host double features in all divisions including the $2,000 to win Malta Windows AMRA Road Warrior Modified event. The fields have been set in the Malta Modifieds and OVSCA 410 Outlaw Sprints. Skyline will complete the Late Model B-main and run double features in the Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models Friday, May 11, then after the "May 4 features", begin a complete new program (Modifieds, Sprints, Late Models, Steel Block Late Models).
The new program will feature, heat races, B-mains as necessary, and features for the Malta AMRA Modifieds, Tru-Tech AMRA Late Models, and OVSCA Sprint Cars. Because last week was considered a complete program--due to over half the events being run-- there are no rain checks. Armbands from last week will not be good as all heats were completed. Fans, however, will be treated to a full evening of racing excitement for one low price of admission: $15 Adult, $12 Sr. Citizens, Kids 12-and-Under Free, and Pits $30.
Steel Block Late Models/Semi-Lates will again be on the racing card, but according to owner Billy Jarrell, 'the class will now be allowed to run Aluminum Heads'. "It seemed we had a low Steel Block car count because many steel block guys had Aluminum heads." noted Jarrell. "Yes, Aluminum heads will now be allowed at Skyline. Also, we will meet prior to the event to establish a fair and competitive weight rule."
All new cars will be accepted for the new May 11 racing program as it is a new show. New cars will be locked out of features already set from last Friday (May 4). Those fields are already established.
The first AMRA Late Model feature will be the first round of the "Six Pack Series" between Skyline and I-77 Raceway Park. Those cars and drivers will be competing for a "six-race" point fund that pays the winner $1,000.
The regularly scheduled May 11th Malta Mod feature will be the "Six Pack" event for the Modifieds paying a point fund bonus of $600 for the six-race package. To further clarify, the modified "Six Pack" race is not the Road Warrior feature.

Octane Racing Products is now on board as a sponsor of AMRA in 2012, and has added $1000 to the AMRA National Points fund, again making the modified national points' $5000 to win. Octane will add contingency awards in random drawings at the banquet to racers displaying the Octane Racing Products decals.

Malta Doors and Windows is the Title Sponsor of the AMRA Modifieds and Tru-Tech Automotive for the Late Models. Other fine sponsors of the MALTA AMRA Modified series are Dave Poske's Performance Parts, Wrisco, Hoosier Racing Tire/Hoosier Tire Ohio Valley, Carthage Auto Parts, AERO Racing Wheels, Rocket Chassis, Lincoln Welders & Lincoln Electric, Hypercoils, Bazell Race Fuels, Alky Racing Alcohol and Sunoco Race Fuels, Impact Racing, ADP Rivets, RCI, OTR Filters, MSD Ignition, Wilwood, Kluhsman Racing Components (KRC), Evans Vinyl Signs, WV Tax & Bookkeeping, Winters Performance, Bilstein Shocks, PST Drive Shafts, Schoenfeld, Killer Bee Race Bodies, The Bumper Man, and Pike Street Lanes.

STEWART, OHIO-The Malta Windows AMRA Road Warrior Challenge series kicked off the season in a big way Friday, May 4 when a host of potent open-wheel modifieds turned out for the $2,000 to win thirty lap feature event. Unfortunately, the big winner was the female nemesis ‘Mother Nature’ as rains came after the modified B-main to wash out the remainder of the event.

             In the companion American Motor Racing Association Tru-Tech Late Model series 35 cars staged for the evening’s racing, the first in the "Six-Pack" specialty points' series between Skyline and I-77 Raceway Park.  Additionally,  the Ohio Valley Sprint Car  Association (OVSCA) 410 Sprint cars were on hand for what turned out to be a “bad fast” racing surface.

     The evening started with a ridge-riding fast time from defending AMRA Malta Mod champ Kenny Johnson, Mineral Wells, WV, who tripped the clock at 14:07.  Following were three exciting heat races that saw Johnson smoke the field in heat one, Mike McPherson took heat two honors and defending Malta Road Warrior champ Doug Henry claimed the third qualifier. 

      Andy Bond, Coolville, set fast time in the late models at 12:41,   Heat winners were Chris Garnes, Ronnie Mayle, Mike McPherson, and Ralph Withem.

      Two-time defending Skyline and OVSCA champion Jimmy Stinson blasted the Skyline red clay to the tune of 10:77. Heat winners were Jimmy Stinson and Danny Smith.  Dave Dickson and Kory Crabtree executed a double flip in the first heat but both drivers were ok.

     The B-main for the Late Models was in the chute when torrential rains pounded the speedway and surrounding Southeastern Ohio . 

            As of press time, Skyline tentatively will complete the Late Model B-main and run double features in all divisions next Friday, May 11.

            Octane Racing Products will be on board as a sponsor of AMRA in 2012 and will add $1000 to the AMRA National Points fund, again making the modified national points' $5000 to win. Octane will add contingency awards in random drawings at the banquet to racers displaying the Octane Racing Products decals.

AMRA Road Warriors Up to $2,000 to Win!

and "Six Pack" AMRA Late Models plus OVSCA Sprints and Steel Block Late Models

MALTA Windows and Hoosier Tire Boost RWT Challenge/ Now $2,000 to Win!
Poske's Performance Parts Boosts Malta Mods to 2G
Six Pack Power Skyline LM Special May 4/Wallace to Beckley May 11

MT. ALTO, WV- A new development in the AMRA has seen the boost of Friday's (May 4) Malta Modified feature at Skyline Speedway jump to $2,000 to win. Earlier today, the American Motor Racing Association (AMRA) announced its opening date for the highly touted Road Warrior Challenge series for this Friday, May 4 at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio. Originally, the Malta Windows modifieds were running for the Silver RWT purse that traditionally pays $1,200 to win. Sponsors boosted the winning amount an additional $500, then later this afternoon Dave Poske of Poske's Performance parts contributed $300 to the winning prize money making Friday's race a $2,000 to win show for the modifieds. The race pays $150 to start.

Skyline will also run the first "Six-Pack" for AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models, Steel Block Late Models, and Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410 Outlaw sprints.

Some of the best names in open wheel racing will assemble for the initial AMRA trek to Southern Ohio. The added winning bonus money has already lured some of the finest Modified drivers in the country to inquire about Friday's landmark event. In 2011 the Road Warrior tour saw Beverly, Ohio driver Doug Henry take the points race right down to the final night in a tight battle with Deana Groves. Kenny Johnson, who plans on attending Skyline Friday was the National champion and in 2010 was the Skyline Champion.

This year the Road Warrior Tour will pay $2,500 to the 10-race series winner, $1,250 for second, and $1,000, $900, $750, $600, $500, and $500. The $8,000 touring money comes in addition to a National $26,000 point fund that pays the top 25 drivers. Sponsor negotiations in progress potentially could expand that point fund within the next two weeks.

In an effort to 'raise-the-bar' and add a new twist to a tradition of tough competition, Skyline Speedway will also kick off the first week of the "Six Pack" series for the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models a joint effort between Skyline and I-77 Raceway Park near Fairplane, WV.

The AMRA is looking host at least one more $2,000-to-win Road Warrior event, plus again hosting the Annual Greg Schilling Memorial, a pilgrimage honoring one of the AMRA greats.

Many AMRA sanctioned tracks will be open this weekend. The starting dates for all AMRA tracks are as follows: Skyline Speedway www.skylinespeedway.net (Open), Ohio Valley Speedway http://www.ohiovalleyspeedway.com/ April 28, Jackson County Speedway , http://www.jacksoncospeedway.com/ (Open), The Legendary Hilltop Speedway May 18 http://www.legendaryhilltop.com/ , Midway Speedway http://www.midwayracing.com/ May 19, Thunder Mountain, http://www.racethundermountain.com/ April 28, Beckley Motorsports Park http://www.beckleymotorsports.com/ (Open), I-77 Raceway Park http://www.racei77.com/ April 28, and O'Brion Oval Speedway http://www.obrionovalspeedway.co.nr/ May 19.

Smith Smothers Sprints April 27, 2012

Carpenter Covers AMRA Tru-Tech Lates
Berwanger Doubles In Malta AMRA Mods

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Despite heavy rains all day Thursday, Billy Jarrell’s Skyline Speedway crew prepped the fast three-eighths mile track for a great night of racing Friday, April 27th. Claiming the win in the powerful Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association series was Veteran outlaw Danny Smith of Chillicothe, Ohio, who won in a torrid Battle-Royal with Jimmy Stinson and Andre Layfield. South Parkersburg, WV driver Chris Carpenter broke Chris Garnes' winning streak with the win in the AMRA Late Model main, and Jeremy Berwanger, the Murray City Bandit, claimed the AMRA modified victory for the second straight week. Overall, 74 cars in three classes were in the pits.
At the start of the OVSCA 410 Sprint car feature, Grafton, WV's Andre Layfield got a good start over outside polesitter, veteran Danny Smith. Last week’s winner Jimmy Stinson also bagged Smith for second and began to chase down Layfield.
The drama that ensued was a classic open wheel firestorm. Stinson challenged Layfield to take the lead going into turn one on lap six, but the move scrubbed speed off both cars allowing Smith to take the lead the next time around and for good on the eleventh circuit.
A great three-way battle saw Layfield regain the lead with Stinson and Smith in tow. Jimmy Nier momentarily took third from Smith, but Smith had a resurgence to assume the lead once again passing both Stinson and Layfield.
Stinson and Smith's iconic JD Engines/Maxim #4 locked horns the rest of the way and with two laps to go Stinson darted by Smith. Amid heavy lapped traffic Smith returned the favor with a final kamikaze move in a feature event that saw multiple lead changes.
Not only was the up-front battle a good one, but late race surges from McPeek, Dickson, and fast-timer Josh Davis highlighted the action. Layfield had a lap 18 bout with the wall that slowed his charge. On the score-sheet Smith looked to dominate, but in between jaunts to the start-finish line prolific bursts of hardcore passing kept the Midwestern fans standing.
Smith said in victory lane, "Wow, what a race. I didn't know if I could get back by (Stinson) the seond time. I guess the difference tonight was just being in the right spot at the right time."
Rounding out the top ten were Danny Smith, Jimmy Stinson, Jimmy Nier, Wayne McPeek, Dave Dickson, Josh Davis, Andre Layfield, Kory Crabtree, Aaron Higgins, and Greg Mitchell. Hard chargers were Jimmy Nier and Josh Davis.
In the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Model main, rubber locked down the track, making passing a premium. Chris Carpenter was the early beneficiary as he jolted into the lead over Chris Garnes, a two-time winner already in 2012 at Skyline.
The duo survived several early cautions as a freight train of hot iron gave hot pursuit. On the 12th circuit, C-main winner Freddie Carpenter broke a left front suspension to bring out the caution after clipping an inside uke tire. Carpenter's night of coming off the tail in the C-main to win and then transferring from the B came to an end.
When the race resumed the "Two-Chris Tandem" tangoed nose to tail in an exciting battle. Ralph Withem and Tony Roush hammered it out for third in another great on-track dual. Meanwhile, Ronnie Mayle, Mike Martin, Larry Bond, and steel block driver Nelson Freshour scrapped with Andy Bond.
Carpenter's Tru-tech Customs/Kryptonite Chassis/Carpenter-built 430 Chevrolet pulled away the last two laps after Garnes raked off some speed in a last ditch effort to take home the win.
Rounding out the top ten were Chris Carpenter, Chris Garnes, Ralph Withem, Tony Roush, Ronnie Mayle, Mike Martin, Larry Bond, Nelson Freshour, Andy Bond, and Paul Wilmoth, Jr. Chad Green and Sammy Stiles, the PA driver, shared hard charger honors with a leap of five positions in advancement.
"The key tonight was my crew helping me get my head on straight," exclaimed Carpenter. "We fought an engine miss in the heat and I got frustrated, so my guys settled me down and they got the car all worked out. We work our butts off all week and all night at the track. I credit this win to my crew."
In the AMRA MALTA Modified main, Former AMRA National champion Jeremy Berwanger launched into the lead from his pole starting perch. Heat winners Rick Venham,Jr. and Dusty Boley gave chase. That pair held off an anxious AMRA RWT champ Doug Henry for many laps as Berwanger’s Lightning/Lloyd Racing Engines #44 began to stretch it out up front.
With six laps down the field tightened due to a Casey Fritz spin. Jeremy Blake, Vince Conrad, and Andy Bond fought it out for position back in the pack with Blake challenging Henry for 4th. Blake continued to blitz with a late-race surge, moving to second and making a run on the winner. Boley finished strong, as did Bond who moved into the top five.
Rounding out the top ten were Jeremy Berwanger, Jeremy Blake, Dusty Boley, Andy Bond, Doug Henry, Vince Conrad, Rick Venham, Shawn Donahue, Roy Roush, and Frankie Roush. Blake and Shawn Donahue each picked up five spots for hard-charger honors.
“We’re back,” proclaimed a happy Berwanger in victory lane. “Charles (Faires) has this Lightning Chassis back in winning form. We’re happy to be back in victory lane, especially having the chance to be back here two weeks in a row.”
Next week, May 4, 2012. Skyline hosts the AMRA MALTA Modified Road Warrior Tour and the first of the Skyline/I-77 "Six Pack" Late Model Series. The LM "Six pack" pays $1,000 in points money to the series winner.

Skyline Speedway Results Friday, April 20, 2012  

Stinson Stuns OVSCA Two-Time Champ Sweeps
AMRA Lates to Garnes/MALTA Mods to Berwanger

 

By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Another beautiful evening of 80 degree weather provided the back drop for a hot evening of racing that featured another stout field of AMRA Late Models and MALTA Doors and Windows AMRA Modifieds at Billy Jarrell’s Skyline Speedway. In the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association (OVSCA) main Jimmy Stinson, Vandalia, Ohio made it a clean sweep by capturing fast time, his heat and the twenty-five-lap A main. Evans, WV driver and defending two-time champion Chris Garnes claimed the top prize in the AMRA Late Models and former AMRA champ Jeremy Berwanger captured the 20-lap MALTA Modified main.

In the OVSCA sprint car main fast timer Jimmy Stinson got the jump on outside pole sitter and heat winner Dave Dickson. Jimmy Nier quickly blitzed under Dickson for second and began a hot pursuit of Stinson. Stinson's B&J construction entry was a rocketship as he came within three tenths of a second of the track record at 10:57, an average speed of 130 miles per hour.Jimmy Stinson

In a fight for third Dave Dickson and Greg Mitchell fought tooth-and-claw for pieces of the fast Skyline turf. On lap seven, Dickson looped it for the third caution of the night, prompting a charge back to the front by the veteran driver by race’s end.

Stinson took no prisoners and continued his flat-footing charge. Nier held a solid second as rookie standout Ryan Broughton made a move on Mitchell with Nathan Skaggs close behind at the midway point.

Broughton's challenge awakened Mitchell who moved to the highside and began a bonsai blitz to retain position. Dickson came on strong, racing back to the top ten. Rounding out the top ten were Stinson, Nier, Mitchell, Broughton, Skaggs, Dickson, Eddie Slone, Brian Benson, Jesse McCreary, and Eric Martin.
Slone was hard charger in a 10th to seventh run, however, Dickson’s tail to 6th was equally impressive.

"The key to the win tonight was having Billy Jarrell as a owner and Gary Hall as a crew chief. He really knows how to make a car go," said Stinson. "Also, this was our type of track—fast and heavy."

The twenty-five lap AMRA Late Model main had plenty of action; however, an early daredevil move by second row starter Chris Garnes gave the eventual winner a huge advantage over front row starters and heat winners Andy Bond and Ralph Withem.

With Garnes securely out in front the epicenter of action was for second between Chris Carpenter, Withem, and Bond. Frankie Hall and the rejuvenated Bob Adams, Jr. --the 62-year old former 8-time track champion--hammered it out for fifth.

A lap eight caution wiped out Garnes' huge lead. Chris Carpenter sat poised directly on the rear quarters of Garnes for the next five circuits, sometimes bringing fans to their feet in a split between the two large fan bases.

Carpenter grabbed the lead on the restart, but Garnes quickly erased the brief encounter. Fast Freddie Carpenter stomped the fast pedal and moved up to third, while KC Burdette also made a great run toward the top five.

Mike McPherson, the modified ace, made a great run in his first-ever late model start. Young Chris Carpenter bounced of the wall in a gallant last ditch effort to run down the winning Garnes. Garnes claimed his second straight win and his fourth victory of the year in his dependable 2011 Swartz Extreme Chassis powered by Pro-Power.

"I just tried to hit my marks and protect my line on the bottom," said Garnes. "I knew I had to be good in traffic, and the way it went down, the spacing between the lapped cars allowed me to hit the cushion at just the right times. The car worked anywhere on the track."Chris Garnes April 20 2012 AMRA LM Winner

Rounding out the top ten were Chris Garnes, Chris Carpenter, Freddie Carpenter, Ralph Withem, KC Burdette, Andy Bond, Mike McPherson, Derek Doll, Kenny Newhouse, and Dan Morrison. Fast Freddie was the hard charger in a 14th to third place run. Morrison was impressive in a last to tenth place run. K-C Burdette came from 12th to 5th and Doll from 16th to 8th.

The always-exciting AMRA Modifieds went three to four wide for the early portions of the feature. Roy Roush took the early lead with a sizzling pursuit from Jeremy Berwanger. Vince Conrad and Rick Venham, Jr. were right in the mix, while a gaggle of cars led by Andy Bond, Brandon Barnhart, Dusty Boley, and Doug Henry fought for bragging rights in the top ten.

Andy Bond came on late in the race after Berwanger passed Roush for first on lap five. Bond held third ahead of Venham, Conrad, Boley and Jeremy Blake who all put on a great show.

Berwanger 4202012Berwanger, the Murray City Bandit, was this week’s cream of the crop, easily claiming the win and overshadowing an impressive run by second place Roush. Rounding out the top ten were Berwanger, Roy Roush, Andy Bond, Rick Venham, Vince Conrad, Dusty Boley, Jeremy Blake, Brandon Barnhart, Robbie Evans, Mike McPherson. Robbie Evans was the hard charger in a 17th to 9th place run.

Garnes Garners Skyline Lates, Duncan Dazzles 410 Sprints
Hartman Masters Malta Mods

Skyline Speedway Results April 13, 2012
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Friday the 13th was the ticket for three drivers as seventy two cars in three divisions packed the pits for the 2012 season opener at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio. Defending champion Chris Garnes of Evans, WV brought home the win over early leader Freddie Carpenter in the AMRA Tru-Tech Late Models. In the OVSCA sprint car spectacular, Lockborne, Ohio Driver Cole Duncan blitzed the fast 410's for the win, and in the Malta Windows and Doors AMRA Modifieds Jess Hartman claimed the feature win.
Marshall Doll in the iconic Doll Brother's Special #87 and Corey Conley paced the potent AMRA Tru-Tech Late Model field to Todd Gorrell's unfurled green flag. Doll led he first lap, but Freddie Carpenter with Chris Garnes and Corey Conley in tow, all freight trained the WV invader. By lap ten, Carpenter had blitzed to a six car length lead over Conley. Lapped traffic became more of a factor as the race progressed, enabling Conley and Garnes to close the gap.
Masterfully, Fast Freddie had made ground on the bottom, but his progress slowed so he went topside, where he met with more backmarkers. Kevin Layne brought out the first caution on lap 20. When the race resumed, Carpenter led one more lap-- twenty overall-- but two-time defending champion Chris Garnes blasted to the highside and carried the momentum for the lap 21 pass coming out of four.
Doll finished strong with an impressive third, flanked by steady performances from Travis Brooker, Andy Bond and Ralph Withem.
Rounding out the top ten were Garnes, Carpenter, Conley, Doll, Brookover, Bond, Withem, Jeff Burdette, Dan Morrison, and Ronnie Mayle. Randy Armes and Ralph Withem shared hard charger honors by advancing five positions each.
At the start of the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association main, pole sitter Jimmy Nier blasted into the lead over outside pt.-man Cole Duncan. Jimmy Stinson, the defending series champ nestled closely in third. Nier put on a masterful slide job of two lapped cars, separating himself from Duncan and Stinson for a short period.
By lap five Cole Duncan blasted around the backmarkers to challenge Nier. As the race tightened, Nick Forcum looped it on lap 12 and collected a spinning Chris Smith. When the race resumed Duncan gave chase and on lap 17 blitzed by Nier for the lead going into turn three. The race was slowed once again a lap later when Kory Crabtree did a 360 to bring out the caution.
This time Duncan would restart the field, pulling both Nier and Stinson by a few yards right out of the gate. Nier and Stinson diced it up for second with Andre Layfield moving into the mix and eventually taking third.
As the race wound to a close Dave Dickson moved into the mix and was one of the faster cars on the track at the time.
Layfield fended off Dickson for position as Duncan crossed the line for the win. Eric Martin won his first ever heat and continued a strong night with a sixth place finish. Crabtree mounted a charge from the tail up to seventh after his late race spin. Additionally, sprint car Rookie Ryan Broughton did a credible job in his first-ever start.
Rounding out the top ten were Cole Duncan, Jimmy Stinson, Jimmy Nier, Andre Layfield, Dave Dickson, Eric Martin, Kory Crabtree, Ryan Broughton, Bryce Dickson, and Brian Benson. The hard charger of the night was shared by Layfield and Dave Dickson. Chris Myers was the lone flip victim of the night. He was uninjured.
In the Malta Windows and Doors 20-lap mod main, Jeremy Berwanger and Rick Venham, Jr. sat poised on the point for the drop of the green. Both men throttled up for the start of the competitive modified feature. Just two laps into the event, Dusty Boley and Jarrod Willis tangled, leaving Willis with a flat tire.
Berwanger led the next eleven circuits before a hard-charging Jess Hartman put a heroic slide job on him for the lead on lap 12. Berwanger rode Hartman's tail to lap nineteen when the caution waved again, leaving a shootout to the finish.
Roy Roush and Kyle Bond had moved up the ladder with Roush taking third ahead of Venham and Mike McPherson. Venham, McPherson, and Conrad all fought hard for position back in the pack with young Kyle Bond making a solid top ten run.
Hartman held on for the win. Rounding out the top ten were Jess Hartman, Jeremy Berwanger, Roy Roush, Rick Venham, Mike McPherson, Vince Conrad, Kyle Bond, Doug Henry, Shane Roush, and Dusty Boley. Dusty Boley was the race hard charger, up from 17th to tenth.
Next Friday, April 20 Skyline will be back in action with another round of exciting AMRA Modifieds and Late Models and OVSCA sprint cars. For further information please visit << www.skylinespeedway.net >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

Skyline Speedway Results  
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-The highly-anticipated Road Warrior Challenge of the American Motor Racing Association (AMRA) lived up to its expectations as a great field of cars, a tacky track, great crowd, and 30-hard laps unraveled to the tune of a Kenny Johnson, (Mineral Wells, WV) celebration in the Skyline Speedway victory lane. "Back to Black, and Back on Track", Chris Carpenter, South Parkersburg, once again found the groove in the AMRA super late models, Cole Duncan, Grove City, aced the OVSCA Sprint cars, Frankie Hall hammered the Semi/Crate Lates, and Jason Gillian claimed the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges.
An unusually tacky, racy track made for some super-fast times and great, multiple groove racing. Fast Timer Chris Stotts- 13:45 - fell upon bad times in his heat, clipping an inside tire barrier. In the sprints, Jimmy Stinson turned a 10:59.
Four exciting heat races set the stage for the feature line-ups in combination with two B-mains for the 38-car modified field. The final battle for position was a 4 x 4 dash that saw Johnson edge heat winners Rick Venham, Jr., Mike McPherson, Jeremy Blake. The four car dash not only set the stage for the final four positions, but jump started the rowdy crowd for the 30-lap main event.
Visibly absent from the field was points' leader Doug Henry, who was battling health issues and was not in attendance. Several other of the AMRA's best, and possibly the nation's best open wheel modified driver's battled hard luck, and were unable to make the field from the select group of highly competitive cars.
In the A-main, Johnson immediately blitzed into the lead like a roaring lion, leaving the rest of the pack to fend for itself. While Johnson sought more prey, other young lions clawed for position. Mike McPherson, Toby Roush, Rick Venham, Jr., Jeremy Blake, Joe Hamon, Joe Cox and Robert Garnes cranked up a battle for a top five. AMRA 2010 RWT Champion Matt Holcomb fell out of the running early, then Toby Roush's bid at a great run ended with a lap eleven exit. A little later Joe Cox exited with a flat tire and heavy body damage after a gallant charge.
McPherson was shuffled back to at least fourth after an early battle, but the RV1 driver slowly began to pick his way back into contention. On the move were Robbie Evans, national points leader Vince Conrad, Jeremy Berwanger, Frankie Roush and youngster Kyle Bond.
Johnson continued to sail until a lap 16 incident sent Garnes to the tail, where he began a drive back to the front. Evans, Conrad, Hamon, Roush, and Berwanger shuffled positions regularly. In the same fashion McPherson, Venham, and Blake danced and diced for multiple passing exchanges for the number two slot. Hamon had a late race miscue that overshadowed his great run (with two laps to go).
Evans charged from 13th to sixth, Frankie Roush zoomed from 15th to 8th, former late model champ Mike Smith, back after a long absence, came from 16th to 10th, but the big passing champion was Jeremy Berwanger's 18th to 6th place charge for the Poske's Performance Parts Hard Charger honors. Gary Gould and Dusty Boley also had good runs from deep in the pack.
The official finish panned out in this order: Kenny Johnson, Mike McPherson, Rick Venham, Jr., Jeremy Blake, Robbie Evans, Jeremy Berwanger, Vince Conrad, Frankie Roush, Kyle Bond (14th to 9th), Mike Smith, Joe Hamon, Robert Garnes, Dusty Boley, Gary Gould, Jeremy Jarvis, Toby Roush, Chris Stotts, John Burdette, and Matt Holcomb.
A racy race track saw early leader Dan Morrison and Chris Carpenter dual in a 'full metal jacket' type clash for the first 16 laps of the race. The duo put on a super-hero performance, while Ralph Withem, Andy Bond, and Larry Bond grappled for the top five.
After so much early success, Morrison's tires appeared to fade. Andy Bond and Withem made some ground and Bond challenged for the lead, on several occasions nosing ahead of the victory-bound Carpenter. Two big stories teased the crowd as Chris Garnes and Colten Burdette both blasted through the pack. Garnes rode the high side to another galaxy, but lost his brakes with 8 laps to go, somewhat slowing his daring campaign.
Garnes came from 11th to 3rd while C. Burdette came from 15th to 7th as the duo shared hard-charging honors.
Rounding out the top ten behind the Tru-Tech Customs Rocket of Chris Carpenter were Andy Bond, Chris Garnes, Ralph Withem, Larry Bond, Freddie Carpenter, Colten Burdette, Dan Morrison, Tyler Carpenter, and Jeff Burdette.
Not enough adjectives could describe the torrid sprint car battle. Seldom do you have three cars around at the finish all within a car-length of one another, and seldom do you have a number of cars that can sustain a full 25-laps of slide-jobs, hard racing, and the stamina to race the duration with inches of one another.
Friday, Jimmy Stinson, Cole Duncan, and Danny Smith filled all three rings of the circus and didn't need a side-show to woo the fans. Stinson led 23 laps with two hungry sharks on his tail. Smith was the early challenger who couldn't quite make some early pass attempts stick. Then Duncan challenged Smith in what was a ferociously hard, but crafty exchange of slide job passing during laps 15 through 23. At one point Duncan popped a wheelie down the back chute, while challenging Smith for second.
As if the challenge wasn't enough, the duo masterfully crafted the exchanges amid some heavy traffic, making the battle more treacherous. On lap 22, Duncan blasted low below a lapped car, drifted high and nosed Stinson for the lead. Smith followed in the same fashion as all three streamed across the finish line in 1-2-3 fashion.
The rest of the top ten also put on a great show. Aaron Higgins was strong all evening and Dave Dickson pulled off another vintage, if not incredible performance from last to fifth. Dickson--the hard charger--was sneaky fast around the bottom, besting a gaggle of hard chargers. Chris Myers recovered from an accident to climb back into a top ten.
Another dual saw Andre Layfield and Wayne McPeek side by side much of the race, sometimes with a strong running Eddie Miller, who left with mechanical problems.
Rounding out the top ten were Duncan, Smith, Stinson, Aaron Higgins, Dave Dickson, Andre Layfield, Wayne McPeek, Chris Myers, Wes McGlumphy, and Kody Kinser. Veteran Benny Hickle flipped clear out of the ball park in turn one in his heat, but was uninjured.The latter cars in the field were extremely fast as well and also contributed to a great show: Greg Mitchell, Brian Benson, Eddie Slone, Eric Martin, John Jenkins.
Frankie Hall, Parkersburg, once again blasted to victory in the Semi-Late/ Crate class. Hall was the class of the field although Terry Hinkle and Kyle Thomas gave the veteran a run early in the event. Rounding out the top ten were Frankie Hall, Terry Hinkel, Freddie Carpenter, Eric Francis, Eric Foster, Nelson Freshour, Matt Kussmaul, James Joy, Thomas Burdette, and Kenny Roberts.
Jason Gillian brought home the Mini-Wedge main over Coleton Perine, Tyler Evans, Zach Carr, Corey Miller, Coleman Evans, Ryan Bigley, Jake Ice, Martin Gibson, Jr., and Gabriel Pepper. The event was the final event for the youngsters and their season-ending 'money race'. Skyline would like to thank the youngsters and their families for a great season of racing. A note of interest was that Lucas Crooks made his debut. Lucas is the Grandson of Hall of Famer Charlie Swartz.
Skyline is idle Labor Day Weekend, but resumes action with a Sprint car special, paying $3,000 to win on Friday, Sept. 9. For more information please visit << www.skylinespeedway.net >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO- It was a solemn, yet fitting tribute to a veteran racing personality. From the Four-wide parade lap tribute from the Mini-Wedges, to the last checkered flag, a fast, furious evening of racing saw Grayson, Kentucky invader Josh McGuire and the remainder of the 91 cars in attendance pay respects in the third annual Jack Shutts Memorial at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. A large crowd saw McGuire bring home the 40-lap Late Model main, Groveport, Ohio's Cole Duncan claimed the OVSCA sprint main, Matt Holcomb claimed the AMRA Modified main and Tracey Fritter won the Mod-Lite main. High flying Jason Gillian won the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge Feature.
Said AMRA LM winner Josh McGuire, "Thanks to Poskes Performance Parts, Hoosier Tire, GCP Race Engines and Mastersbuilt Chassis along with my crew and family. The key tonight was getting to the front and then getting low and just holding on. These Hoosier tires worked great! We've had a good deal of success here and it was good to be able to put on a show for the fans and the Shutts family."
Hot Rod Conley took the early lead from the outside pole and over the first two circuits built up a comfortable lead. Pole-sitter Jason Montgomery then fell into a groove and began to reel in the leader. Over the next 14-circuits, fans watched in awe as Montgomery pulled in beside Conley and Chris Garnes and McGuire filed in behind for what appeared to be the start of a fast car dash.
Two-wide, two-deep the four heroes battled diligently, sometimes with Montgomery nosing ahead, and then dropping briefly back to third in the high-speed tango. On lap six Montgomery officially became the leader and led until lap 16 with McGuire riding side-saddle the entire route. On the 16th circuit Montgomery drifted wide out of four and McGuire nosed in to lead by feet at the start finish line.
A lap later Montgomery had retaken the lead, but a spin brought out a caution, thus reverting back a lap with McGuire on the point. Montgomery challenged for several laps, but once McGuire’s mount took ahold of the rubber-clad surface, he was off to victory.
Fast-timer Chris Garnes, who earned a pair of tires for the feat, came on strong late in the race to finish third, shuffling Garnes to fourth and Conley to fifth. Only one caution marred the 40-lap event. Rounding out the top ten were defending Harvest 50 winner Zach Dohm, Tyler Carpenter, Ricky Williams, Freddie Carpenter, and Andy Bond. Young Tyler Carpenter was the winner of a group of close runners, finally winning a dual with Williams, while Freddie Carpenter earned hard-charger honors coming from 18th to 9th. Ralph Withem also had a good run to 11th.
If the first few laps of the Late Model feature wasn't enough to fill the competitive appetite of the fans, the 410 Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association feature was. For 25 laps it was anyone's race. Pole-sitter Cole Duncan took the initial lead over outside point-man, veteran Dave Dickson. Jimmy Stinson, the defending Skyline/OVSCA champ, worked high around Dickson while Josh Davis challenged low.
That was about all the breathing room Duncan had. To lap 17 Duncan and Stinson went nose-to-tail, wheel-to-wheel until finally Stinson moved high against the thin cushion to make the leading pass on lap 18. Now in reverse order with Duncan in the catbird seat, Stinson charged toward victory with Duncan dogging him every inch of the way. Coming around for lap 23 Duncan nosed under Stinson in turn three, then pulled him down the chute to retake the lead.
Stinson tried to ride some momentum off the high side, but fell a car short at the finish.
Said Cole Duncan. "Actually it was better to be in second when I was. I could see where I needed to be and kept Jimmy guessing where I was. It also helped to be able to catch Jimmy in lapped traffic. Thanks to Maxim Chassis, Dad, my family and Factory Kahne Shocks. The car really worked great all night long."
Rounding out the top ten behind Stinson were Josh Davis, Dave Dickson, Aaron Higgins, Andre Layfield, Chris Myers, Wayne McPeek, Benny Hickel, and Eddie Slone. Aaron Higgins was the hard-charger of the race.
The AMRA Modified main had a season's worth of action back in the pack, but up front defending Road Warrior Champion Matt Holcomb was on a rail and heading toward victory lane. Holcomb, the Greg Schilling Memorial winner, proved that win was the real deal in driving off into the sunset over a field of heavy-hitters of the modified division.
Draping a cool towel across his neck to put out the fire of a heavy second place battle, Rick Venham, Jr. was all smiles after winning a race-long battle with Andy Bond. Bond tried everything imaginable often drifting by Venham on the turn entry, only to scrape off speed in drifting back to third. Venham persevered for second, but never got the late-race caution he needed to make a bid at Holcomb.
Rounding out the top ten were Jeremy Blake, Robert Garnes, Doug Henry, Roy Roush, J.P. Roberts, Mark Luning, and Vince Conrad. Luning held fourth much of the race in a gaggle of cars that saw 5-to-6 cars battling for a top five. Kenny Johnson, driving hard but suffering a bit, perhaps from a heat race altercation was shuffled out of the top ten-- a rare experience on the AMRA trail.
Luning in-turn fell victim in the battle and the Skyline shuffle, as Jeremy Blake worked his way through the front-runners to fourth, Robert Garnes held a consistent fifth and Henry, R. Roush, and Roberts marched up through the field. Roy Roush was the hard-charger in a 17th to 7th run.
R.D. Jones, Charleston, WV saw Tracey Fritter's back bumper up-close and personal much of the 15-lap Mod Lite main. Jones tried high, tried low and a combination of the two to make a bid a Fritter, but Fritter's momentum prevailed as he raced to his second Skyline win of the season. Jones was second followed by Brandon Fluharty, Tyler Riggs, Nathan Casto, Mike Herrington, Troy Collins, Ray Heskett, Brian Herrington, and David Elmore.
Jason Gillian claimed the exciting Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main over Mini-mainstay Cole Mayle. Behind the winning Gillian in the mini-33 Auto Parts car were Mayle, Coleton Perine, Corey DeLancey, Zach Carr, Skylar Zimmerman, Samantha Roush, Kasey Rankin, and Curstin Giffin.
Kids Bicycle racing highlighted the intermission with 25 kids participating. Additionally, C&S Racing Photo, Poske's Performance Parts, the OVSCA, and Eddie Miller Racing donated five bicycles to children in attendance, making a fun evening for all family and friends.
Next week Skyline hosts the AMRA Late Models, AMRA Modifieds, OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars, and Semi-Late Crate Late Models under an open tire rule.

Skyline Speedway Results 6-24-2011
Holcomb, Davis, Garnes, Fritter take Schilling Memorial Night wins!  Great Crowd and 118 cars compete

Greg Schilling Memorial

schilling 3rd

 

STEWART, OHIO-AMRA RWT Champion Matt Holcomb was good, he was lucky, and he ultimately made a clean sweep of the third annual Greg Schilling Memorial before a packed house at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night. Evans, WV driver Chris Garnes won his third straight AMRA Late Model main. After suffering a bad flip last weekend, Chillicothe's Josh Davis stoked the coals to the 22D for his first Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association win of the season, and Tracy Fritter claimed the Modified Lites main event. Overall, 118 cars graced the pit area with 51 of the best open wheel modifieds in the Midwest hoping to stake claim at one of the division's biggest paydays.
Holcomb was somewhat of a magician, pulling the old hat trick to cap off the win. Holcomb set C&S Racing fast time, claimed the Wetzel's/B&J Welding Dash, then came home with the $1,699 Schilling Memorial win. Holcomb was fast out of the gate with a sizzling 15:63 time trial, then flexed some muscle with a dicing dash win over Aukland.
The performance on the track was just as exciting as the off-the-track drama in the running of the third annual Greg Schilling Memorial. For 25-laps Matt Holcomb, the defending AMRA (American Motor Racing Association) Road Warrior Champion, led the race only to have Late Model Hall of Famer Aukland get by in lapped traffic.
"I thought that was the race," said Holcomb. "I couldn't hit my spots because of the lapped cars and Rick could see what I couldn't, and took advantage of it."
For the racing fan, Friday's special was a Broadway hit. Holcomb got the early lead out of the gate, but Aukland was within inches every stretch of the first 25 markers. Aukland occasionally tried the high side, then moved down low and began to politely nudge under the leader Holcomb. Finally, lapped cars came into play. The first few Holcomb quickly disposed of, but as he progressed up the ladder, a competitive traffic jam emerged, making it rough for the youngster.
Holcomb got trapped behind a backmarker and Aukland took to the highside. The veteran Aukland led the 26th circuit and appeared to be on his way to victory lane, taking the checkered flag first. Aukland made a bonsai move that kept two cars between him and Holcomb at the finish. However, an after-race inspection found the use of an unapproved part on the 2a of Aukland and resulted in disqualification. The result was that heartbreak turned to celebration for Holcomb.
Said Holcomb in victory lane, "I thought the difference in this one was going to be the lapped traffic, and it wasn't to my advantage. But I guess patience paid off. To lose this one after leading was a downer, but to end up with the win is great. Hoosier Tires on this Coyote Chassis and a week's worth of work from Jordan Riggs certainly made the difference. Jordan made this car go the way it did tonight. It's great to win this for the Schilling family."
Closing in on the leaders late in the race was a blitzing Kevin Morehouse with Jeremy Berwanger in tow. Andy Bond and northern KY invader Dave McWilliams hammered it hard for the duration of the race, while Chris Stotts moved from 14th to 7th, falling just short of Hard Charger honors. Roy Roush claimed the hard-charger award with an 18th to tenth place run.
Rounding out the top ten were Matt Holcomb, Kevin Morehouse, Jeremy Berwanger, Andy Bond, David McWilliams, Todd Robinson, Chris Stotts, Robbie Evans, Bart Hartman, and Roy Roush.
Said second place Kevin Morehouse, "The difference between a strong second and winning was that I needed a caution. The tires kicked in about halfway, but Rick and Matt had built up a good lead. I was hoping for a caution, but second is good with this group of racers."
"I was just happy to make the race," smiled former AMRA champ Jeremy Berwanger who brought home third. "Racing with this group is an honor, and it was very special to bring home third tonight. The car was great."
The nearly caution-free Late Model main saw Chris Garnes lead flag to flag in another check-out run. Garnes' Swartz Extreme blasted the field with another hard-charging effort. Most of the race saw second place Ralph Withem give chase to Garnes with a strong run early. Withem then had to defend second against K-C Burdette in a race-long battle. After Withem shed Burdette he found himself wheel-to-wheel with Tyler Carpenter. Ultimately Withem held on for runner-up, halting fast timer Carpenter's charge to the front. Rounding out the top ten were Ralph Withem, Tyler Carpenter, Larry Bond, K-C Burdette, Dan Morrison, Jeff Burdette, Andy Bond, Rick Williams, Freddie Carpenter, and Colten Burdette. Rick Williams was the hard-charger in a 16th to 8th place run.
In the 410 OVSCA Sprint Car main, Fast-timer Josh Davis blasted into the initial lead with Andre Layfield, subbing for Jimmy Stinson, in the Billy Jarrell #22. On lap 9 Layfield put on a slide job and made it stick, then a lap and a half later Davis moved down into the rubber and blasted by Layfield.
"Andre showed me where the fast line was. After last week's flip, my back and tail bone were sore and I could hardly hold myself up in the seat, but with a win insight you find a way to make it work," said Davis.
After Layfield shuffled back to second Jimmy Nier and Wayne McPeek waltzed past, then Aaron Higgins followed in tow. Five cars were within six car lengths of the lead in an anything-goes outcome. Higgins bagged McPeek, the West Virginia Warrior, and then Higgins challenged for the lead. With four laps to go Nier collected a lapped car and suffered a flat.
Higgins tried Davis several times, then Layfield came back to life in a last ditch effort to shoot for the lead. When all was said and done Davis held on for the win. "We took the car to Tony Beaber's Monday to get the frame straight. Heck I don't think it ever went this good. He got it right on. This week was an outhouse to the penthouse week and we sure needed it."
Rounding out the top ten were Josh Davis, Aaron Higgins, Andre Layfield, Wayne McPeek, Brian Benson, Dave Dickson, Kory Crabtree, Chris Myers, Beau Stewart, and Greg Mitchell. Kory Crabtree, who flipped in his heat, got his thoughts and his mount back in order for hard-charger honors, zooming from 15th to 7th.
In the Modified Lites, one of the best in the divisions, Tracey Fritter brought home the win over Cody Bova, and Tyler Riggs. In the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges Cole Mayle went 4-for-4 over Jason Gillian, Coleman Evans, Martin Gibson, Jr., Tyler Evans, Hunter Teters, Coleton Perine, Hunter Newlon, Tanner Hendrix, and Skyler Zimmerman.

Garnes, Stinson, Johnson, Adkins Ace Skyline Mains
Mayle 3-for-3 in Mini-Wedges

Skyline Speedway Results            June 17, 2011
By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-A nearly full moon cast a bright spot in victory lane for Evans, WV Driver Chris Garnes who won his second consecutive AMRA Late Model main at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night. In the companion 410 Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association headliner, defending champion Jimmy Stinson, Vandalia, OH aboard the B & J Welding and Contracting Maxim pulled off the win, Kenny Johnson aced the AMRA Modified main, and Dennis Adkins claimed the Four-Cylinder spotlight. Ninety-two cars were entered in the event.
In the 25-lap AMRA Late Model main Chris Garnes, Evans, WV took the lead from Jackson's Jason Montgomery on the 4th lap and never looked back, half-tracking the field in his Swartz Extreme/Cornett Engines/ Tri-County Builders #42. Garnes lapped all but the first seven cars in one of the most impressive runs of the year.
           For the first seven laps Montgomery stayed close, but Garnes gradually pulled off to a huge lead. Montgomery safely anchored down second, but Rod Conley and Chris Carpenter fought the entire race for third. In the end Carpenter nailed down a close third over Conley.
           Jeff Wood, Athens, in his first start of the season had a good run into the top five while brothers Andy and Larry Bond traded punches for 6th and 7th as the only cars remaining on the lead lap.
           Behind Garnes in the top ten were Montgomery, Chris Carpenter, Rod Conley, Jeff Wood, Andy Bond, Larry Bond, KC Burdette, Colten Burdette, and Jeff Burdette.
           Said Garnes in victory lane, "I knew I had to stay down low around the tires and the car really hooked up there. Also, getting through lapped traffic was tough and fortunately I was able to hit my spots and make it through."
           Making the run even more impressive was that a bloody-handed Garnes narrowly eluded disaster when one of the safety cables on his trailer snapped loose and cut both hands. "I literally had to hold on for this one," smiled Garnes.
           Skyline made a special presentation to Steve McVey in memory of Steve's father, presenting a die-cast car from Wetzel's Collectibles and also signed by all the drivers. Paul Pappy McVey spent most of his life around racing, and up until last year was active in the C & S Racing Photo stand. McVey also owned race cars for many, many years. The McVey family expressed its gratitude to all fans, drivers, and track crew.
           K-C Burdette was the hard-charger in a 17th to 8th place run.
           On the first lap of the OVSCA sprint car main, Kory Crabtree looped it in front of the field, collecting Jamie Myers and Mark Imler who got airborne and did a slow roll over. All three cars were eliminated, but all three drivers were o.k.
           Once the race resumed, pole sitter Jimmy Stinson and Jimmy Nier dueled for the top spot, but once Stinson pulled off the crossover to the high-side, it was all Stinson. Setting fast time and taking the heat win, Stinson made it a clean sweep for the night. The high-flyer lapped all but the top four cars in a spectacular rim-riding run.
           Nier anchored second, while Brian Benson and Josh Davis hammered it out hard for third. Benson held third to the 14th circuit with Davis on his rear nerf every inch of the way. Finally, Davis made the pass for position, while Wayne McPeek, Aaron Higgins, and Dave Dickson rattled the bird-cages for a top five. Benson lost some ground in a near spin, allowing Dickson to make the pass late in the race, while Higgins rounded-out fourth.
           Said Stinson, "I just show up. All the credit goes to Billy Jarrell and (mechanic) Gary Hall. Man, Gary had this thing hooked up tonight. He really had it going."
Stinson, as did all feature winners, received a tee-shirt and gift pack from the Dayton Auto Racing Fan (DARF) club and Hootie Gibson. Earlier on the trip down the road Stinson had called Gibson and jokingly said, "Have my Tee-shirt ready tonight."
           Rounding out the top ten were Jimmy Stinson, Jimmy Nier, Josh Davis, Aaron Higgins, Dave Dickson, Brian Benson, Greg Mitchell, Wayne McPeek--the West Virginia Warrior; Sam Ashworth, and Eddie Slone. Sam Ashworth was the race hard charger in a 14th to 9th place run. Greg Mitchell was a notable in a strong 11th to 7th place jaunt. Reportedly, Higgins ( who rambled from 12th to 4th) was a DNQ for not crossing the scales; never-the-less making a strong run in the race.
           The AMRA Modified race was one of the best of the night. Pole-sitter Andy Bond held off Kenny Johnson for the first three markers, but Johnson made the pass on the next circuit. The battle continued in reverse order with Bond dogging Johnson in the high-speed roulette.
Robert Booger Garnes was on a rail as he dueled Jess Hartman tooth-and-nail for fourth behind a solid effort from Vince Conrad in third. Jason Brooks quickly made it a three way race for fourth in a good drive up through the pack.
           Garnes rid himself of Hartman as Conrad pressed Bond. The last seven laps of the race saw that trio duke it out with multiple position changes, and at least three laps where Conrad found himself in a Bond-Conrad-Garnes, three-wide sandwich. Mike McPherson moved into the mix only to leave with motor ailments, as did AMRA point leader Doug Henry.
Johnson's Shaw Chassis 1-J zoomed on to the win. He said, "This one is for Pappy (McVey)."
In a more jovial mood Johnson grinned as he said, "The key tonight was go fast, turn left, and don't screw up! Sometimes I'm pretty good with the last one, but tonight I was pretty good at the first two."
           The top ten were Kenny Johnson, Vince Conrad, Robert Garnes, Andy Bond, Jason Brooks, Jess Hartman, Robbie Evans, Rick Venham, Jr., Frankie Roush, and Jeremy Jarvis. The race hard charger was Frankie Roush in a 18th to 9th place run.
As rains threatened, the Four Cylinder main got underway with Dennis Adkins getting the jump on Tommy Adkins. The initial spurt Dennis had at the drop of the green was just enough to keep him on the point as he waltzed to the win with cousin Tommy right at his side most of the way. They came across the line in this order: Dennis Adkins, Tom Adkins, Chris Lauer, Jeff Rankin, Ken Young, George Klintworth, Barry Kitts, and Tony Plaugher.
           Cole Mayle picked up his third straight win in the Mike's Auto Body's Mini-Wedges. The finish--Cole Mayle, Coleman Evans, Tyler Evans, Hunter Teters, Corey DeLancey, Coleton Perine, Cameron Roush, Martin Gibson, Jr., Zack Carr, and Kasey Rankin
Coming next Friday, June 24 is the race of all modified races, and one of the fastest growing namesakes in the USA--The 3rd Annual Greg Schilling Memorial for AMRA Modifieds.

Skyline Speedway Results 6-10-11

Garnes, Smith, Bond, Emmelhainz, Mayle take Skyline Wins!
Another big Field turns out for Adkins Memorial

By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO-Thunder echoed in the foothills, but the rains held off as a nearly full grandstand and ninety-six of the region's finest drivers filed into Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway, where veteran outlaw Danny Smith pulled off the OVSCA Sprint win and Chris Garnes claimed the AMRA Late Model bout. In the Four Cylinder Special--Gene Adkins Memorial Race-- young Tyler Emmelhainz in the Gene Adkins/Pink Panther tribute car claimed the big win, while Kenny Johnson held off Andy Bond for the AMRA modified victory and Cole Mayle captured the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges.
        Dennis Adkins set fast time in the FWD Four Cylinders, then dueled door-to-door with Cousin Tommy Adkins for the first ten laps of the feature. Both are cousins and nephews of the late Gene Adkins, who was memorialized in Friday's event. On lap 11 Dennis appeared to have blown a radiator hose after a pass attempt high on the outside.
        The race went green to lap 15 when a caution for debris slowed the field when Tommy Adkins and a lapped car made contact. Adkins was a half track ahead at the time, but his misfortunes grew as a flat tire sidelined him from the remainder of the event. Emmelhainz, who had just secured second from a hard-charging Kevin McKenzie, inherited the lead and blasted onward to the win.         Ironically, Emmelhainz is the Grandson of the late Gene Adkins.
Denzil Barker was in the running for the win most of the race, while Tony Plaugher and George Klintworth joined David Banks and Chris Lauer with worthy charges. Rounding out the top ten were Tyler Emmelhainz, Kevin McKenzie, Denzil Barker, Jr., Tony Plaugher, George Klintworth, David Banks, Chris Lauer, Jeff Blanton, Barry Kitts, and John Rankin. Rankin was the hard-charger advancing six positions, while Klintworth advanced five.
        In the first 4-cyl heat Keith Marlow, a hard charger fighting for position, got the worse end of a three-car tangle that sent him headlong into and over the wall. A Higher Power prevailed as only minor injuries occurred in the scary encounter.
        In the OVSCA 410 sprint main, Danny Smith's Maxim/J&D Engines/Coors light #4 was the cream of the crop, but not withstanding a race-ending battle from young charger Cole Duncan. Smith had blitzed to an early lead, but from lap 12 on Duncan began to reel him in. Jimmy Stinson was right with Duncan much of the way.
        Chris Myers had a great run going with a steady fifth well at hand when his mount struck the wall, then tumbled end-over-end and out of the ball park on the back chute. The nasty spill left his mount worse for the wear, but Myers was O.K. Two laps later, Jimmy Nier and Mitchell Harble made contact and Nier flipped several times exiting turn four. He too emerged without injury.
        That set a five-lap shootout to the finish. Duncan jumped the cushion on the initial start. lost some ground, and had to scramble to catch Smith. Duncan closed the gap, but the crafty Smith held on for his second Skyline win and third win in a row.
        Rounding out the top ten were Danny Smith, Cole Duncan, Jimmy Stinson, Kory Crabtree, Aaron Higgins, Mitch Harble, Dave Dickson, Josh Davis, Nathan Skaggs, and Brian Benson. Aaron Higgins was the race hard charger in a 13th to 5th run, while Brian Benson came from 16th to tenth.
        In the AMRA late model main Chris Garnes and Racin' Jason Montgomery pounded the clay to starter Todd Gorrell's green flag. The battle for first was hot and heated until Garnes' Swartz/Extreme Chassis/ Cornett Powered #42 began to pull away. Rod Conley, last week's winner, rekindled a feud with young Colten Burdette for third. In the 10-lap qualifying heat the duo battled side-by-side for the entire race with 15 lead changes. Burdette deservingly won that battle, but this time Conley prevailed.
        With Garnes clicking off the laps, Conley now challenged Montgomery hard for second. Only one caution flew in the 25-lap event that saw Garnes win by a hefty margin. Rod Conley anchored second over Montgomery, while Colten Burdette, Freddie Carpenter, Ralph Withem, Dan Morrison, KC Burdette, Bub Crum, and Larry Bond rounded out the top ten. The race hard-charger was K-C Burdette who came from 14th to 8th.
        The star-studded AMRA Modified main saw Robbie Evans edge Jesse Hartman on the start. That set an early tango between Evans, Hartman, and defending AMRA champ Kenny Johnson. Evans led the first few markers before Johnson broke free from the rest of the pack and charged to the victory.

        The great driving was reflected in a caution free, green-to-checkered run that saw the last checkered flag fall at 11:30 (despite three significant red flag delays on the evening).
Mike McPherson, Robert Garnes, and Chris Stotts had steady charges through the pack. McPherson, Andy Bond and Johnson all were right there at the finish. McPherson and Stotts each picked up nine positions to share hard Charging honors with great runs. Johnson, Andy Bond, Mike McPherson, Robbie Evans, Robert Garnes, Roy Roush, Chris Stotts, Jess Hartman, Rick Venham, Jr., and Tommy Powell rounded out the top ten.
Cole Mayle won his second straight Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedge main. He was followed by Martin Gibson, Jr., Corey DeLancey, Zach Carr, Kasey Rankin, Samantha Roush, and Jason Gillian.
        Next week, June 17 is the Father's Day Special where all Dad's get in for just $10. Mom and kids are asked to treat Dad to this special bargain price and a night at the races. Kids 12 and under are free! Coming June 24 is the 3rd Annual Greg Schilling Memorial, while the next night is the Road Warrior Challenge at I-77, a big two-day deal.
        Skyline will also host the first leg of a giant Fourth of July Weekend event for the OVSCA sprint cars. The three-day deal has a 3-day ticket package for just $30 to see three days of racing (July 1, Skyline; July 2, Ohio Valley; and Sunday, July 3 at I-77 Motorsports Park). More details are to come.

Conley, Smith, Bond, Wise take Skyline 2011 Openers
Huge Field turns out for Inaugural Run

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe

STEWART, OHIO- A beautiful summer night and 106 CARS welcomed the start of the 2011 racing season at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway where Wheelersburg, Ohio's Rod Conley picked up the AMRA Late Model win, veteran Danny Smith claimed the 25-lap OVSCA 410 sprint main, Andy Bond claimed the AMRA Modified main, Randy Wise took the Four Cylinders, and Cole Mayle claimed the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges.
        Fast Timer and heat winner Harold Redman, Jr. and last year's biggest winner at Skyline, Chris Carpenter, paced the field to the green in the 25 lap AMRA Late Model main. Chris Carpenter took the initial lead and began to pull away from second place K-C Burdette. The race went straight green to lap-eleven when Freddie Carpenter caught the back chute wall to bring out the caution.
        In the meantime, Hot Rod Conley had passed Burdette with a hard-charging Jason Montgomery following in tow for third. On the restart Carpenter resumed the lead, but also last year's Harvest 50 winner Zach Dohm jumped Redman on the start and would later be penalized two spots. Dohm went on to outdistance the field, but the miscue would prove to be costly.
        At this point the race for second was actually for first. Rod Conley and Carpenter put on quite a show with Conley actually taking the lead on lap 21. Dohm ran under the checkered flag first, however, Conley brought home the $1,500 cash in the Conley Trucking 71R. Said Conley, "The key to the win was Bart Hartman helping me sort this car out all evening long. The changes we made sure made a difference and the car hooked up nice. As far as the win goes, we will take them any way we can get them." Conley also thanked Rocket Chassis, Conley Trucking, and Hoosier Tire by Frye.
        Rounding out the top ten were Rod Conley, Chris Carpenter, Zach Dohm, Travis Brookover, Chris Garnes, Jason Montgomery, Harold Redman, Jr., Andy Bond, Tyler Carpenter, Ralph Withem, and Larry Bond. The hard-charger was Tyler Carpenter in a 17th to 8th place run.
        The Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association A-main went green to checker with Jimmy Nier jumping out to the early lead. Nier seemed invincible, but slowly the old veteran Danny Smith kept reeling him in. Finally on lap 12 Smith drove under Nier in turn one and zoomed to the win.
Andre Layfield battled Smith hard earlier, when Nier was on the point, but when Smith went to the top spot Layfield was left to battle hard with Wayne McPeek. McPeek and Layfield exchanged positions several times in the middle ten laps before McPeek's tires went away.
        Said Smith in victory lane, "The key tonight was being patient and getting to the bottom. I got about as low as I could and the car worked well there. Thanks to the fans for letting us put on a show and coming out and supporting us. Also, thanks to the track and fans for passing the hat last year when I broke my back. It was well appreciated and gave us incentive to come back and put on a good show here tonight." Smith also thanked his crew and sponsors for making the win possible.
        Rounding out the top ten behind Danny Smith were Jimmy Nier, Andre Layfield, Wayne McPeek, Dave Dickson, Aaron Higgins, Mark Imler, Josh Davis, Keith Baxter, Bryce Dickson, and Nathan Skaggs. The sprint hard-charger was Josh Davis up from 15th to 8th.
In the war ridden AMRA modified main, Andy Bond leaped into first and saw Kenny Johnson distantly in his mirror as he blitzed to a big lead and on to the big win.
        Much action took place back in the pack, where numerous battles for position and sometimes 3-wide racing from the open wheelers thrilled the crowd. The top ten were Andy Bond, Kenny Johnson, Derrick Smith, Robbie Evans, Bart Hartman, J.P. Roberts, Robert Garnes, Jess Hartman, Mike McPherson, and Jeremy Jarvis. Smith and Bart Hartman had good runs, while the hard-charger was Robbie Evans up from 15th to 4th.
Randy Wise and Tommy Adkins the top winners from last year again battled it out for bragging rights in the Front Wheel drive Four Cylinders. Adkins and Wise trade paint several times, but Wise was able to slide by for the win.
        The top ten were Randy Wise, Tommy Adkins, Dennis Adkins, George Klintworth, Tony Plaugher, Ken Young, Jeff Rankin, Barry Kitts, Steve Brown, and John Rankin.
Young Cole Mayle looked like a pro in the Mike's Auto Body Mini-Wedges. Mayle claimed the win in a big way over Martin Gibson Jr., Corey DeLancey, MacKenzie Perine, Samantha Roush, Kasey Rankin, Troy Collins, Coleton Perine, Jake Ice, and Zack Carr. Tony Plaugher was the Four Cylinder hard charger.
        Next week, June 10 is the Four Cylinder Gene Adkins Memorial and Regular Show for all other divisions. Gates open at 4:30PM . The Four Cylinder Adkins Memorial will pay $600 to win. June 17 is the Father's Day Special where all Dad's get in for just $10, one of the biggest bargains of the year. The bicycle racing has been moved to July 15. Coming June 24 is the 3rd annual Greg Schilling Memorial for AMRA Modifieds.
        New track sponsors include Kiser's BBQ Shack, No Idea Sports Dining, Rock Auto, and Adkins Timber, Inc.

Skyline Speedway Results FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Under a full moon in the foothills of beautiful Appalachia, Skyline Speedway provided the perfect backdrop for victory lane, where Morgantown's Andre Layfield stormed from 13th to first in an exciting Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association feature for 410 sprint cars. Chris Carpenter, Parkersburg, WV ousted dad Freddie Carpenter for his eighth win in the AMRA Late Models, Kenny Johnson, Parkersburg, claimed the AMAR Modifieds, Gary Gould claimed the Pure Stocks, Randy Wise the four cylinders, and the dominator Will Holland claimed the Mini-Wedge main.
In the 410 Ohio Valley Sprint Car Assoc. main event Mitchell Harble got the early jump on the initial start, but a caution waved. Kory Crabtree, a Skyline and OVSCA points' contender was sidelined with mechanical problems on the caution. After a second try in which Wayne McPeek was whistled for jumping, the field went single file with Harble on the point. Harble put his #15 on the high side and blasted around the high-banked oval with great precision.
Just like a week ago, crafty veteran Dave Dickson put the Abbott 7a on the lowside and chased down Harble. Harble high, Dickson low--the duo battled for several laps before Dickson took over on lap eleven. The ever-improving Harble was not deterred and continued to battle Dickson. Another points' contender Josh Davis left with steering woes after contact with another car.
All the while Keith Baxter was on the move after battling hard with a charging Andre Layfield with hot shoe Jimmy Stinson giving chase to Dickson and Harble. Dickson used the same drive he used to victory last week, but Layfield picked off both Harble and Stinson to move into third behind Baxter.
Layfield's victory march came on the high side where his J&J Chassis/Fisher Powered mount locked down in overdrive. Layfield bagged second place Harble, then worked on Dickson, taking command on lap 21. Layfield rode the momentum to the victory in the OVSCA main, his second of the season.
Said Layfield, "I knew when I made it to third that I was going to win. The car was really working great at the top. I knew that the car was good, but we also got a little bit lucky. Any way you look at it I glad to get the win."
Youngsters Sam Ashworth and Cale Conley in the Jamie Miller #6 had good runs. Conley charged from 16th to seventh ahead of sizzling Fireman Brian Benson and Wes McGlumphy. Aaron Higgins had a great run from the tail to tenth and Wayne McPeek charged from 17th to 11th. Layfield was hard-charger, advancing the most positions from 13th to number one.
Rounding out the top ten were Layfield, Dave Dickson, Keith Baxter, Mitchell Harble, Jimmy Stinson, Sam Ashworth, Cale Conley, Brian Benson, Wes McGlumphy, and Aaron Higgins. Cale Conley was another hard charger of the race up to seventh from 17th.
In the AMRA Late Model main, the father-son team of Chris Carpenter and Freddie Carpenter paced the field to the green flag. Chris got the jump on dad and Fast Freddie filed in behind. Once again lots of action took place back in the pack with Jeff Burdette making a quick jump up the ladder.
On the third lap, Scott Wolfe lost a drive shaft to bring out the first caution of the race. When the action resumed young Carpenter was once again on the launching pad. Fast Freddie showed his son the nose a few times, but couldn't make a successful bid. Two noticeable drivers charging to the front were consi drivers Tyler Carpenter in the Buckwheat Shutts Rocket and Dan Morrison in his new Rocket with both drivers missiling to the front up from 16th and 18th respectively. Morrison squeezed one more position out of the mix to capture hard-charger honors.
Burdette bagged a gaggle of heavy hitters to jump past Andy Bond, Josh McGuire, Chris Garnes and Travis Brookover in the early stages. The only other caution was a lap nine skirmish that sent Larry Bond to the tail. Bond recovered to finish ninth. McGuire, Burdette, and Garnes dueled hard, while the dynamic duo of Carpenter and Son set up shop ahead of the pack.
Rounding out the top ten were Chris Carpenter, Freddie Carpenter, Jeff Burdette, Chris Garnes, Josh McGuire, Tyler Carpenter, Dan Morrison, Travis Brookover, Larry Bond, and Ralph Withem.
In the AMRA Modified main, Kenny "Worth the Price of Admission" Johnson gave the fans their money's worth. With a big bang for the buck, Johnson was the elite car in the field, distancing himself a full straight-away lead right out of the gate. While Johnson was on Cruise-control J.P. Roberts anchored second place. Roberts had a hand full of Chris Stotts and Robert Garnes. The mayhem continued sometimes three-wide, but by lap 13 Mike McPherson had run down most of the front-runners and after sacking Robbie Evans, went after Stotts. McPherson, the hard charger in a 12th to third run, took third on lap 16 and grabbed second from Roberts on lap 18 in a great run.
Evans just missed a top five over Matt Holcomb, Jeremy Blake, up from 15th, Buddy Brogan, and Derrick Smith. Smith and Brogan joined Blake in a run from the back to finish in the top ten.
Rounding out the top ten were Kenny Johnson, Mike McPherson, J.P. Roberts, Robert Garnes, Chris Stotts, Robbie Evans, Matt Holcomb, Jeremy Blake, Buddy Brogan, and Derrick Smith.
In the Pure Stock division former go-kart racer Gary Gould pulled off his first ever Skyline feature win. Recently, Gould bought a machine off Jeremy Blake and quickly adapted to the ranks, challenging for the lead last week before getting a flat tire. Gould was the class of the field as he pulled away to huge lead even after two mid-race cautions. Shelly Powell also had the hammer down with her best run of the year for second.
Ryan Wilson had mechanical woes and started on the tail, but came back to third after a good run. Rounding out the top ten were Gould, Powell, Wilson, Levi Woods, Chris Ice, George Klintworth, Curt Reck, Jarrad Willis, and Shane Roush.
Randy Wise picked up his first feature win last week and liked it so much, he duplicated the feat in a torrid battle with Tommy Adkins. That duo fought hard early for the top spot, but Wise sped away at mid-race, leaving Adkins to battle Chris Lauer for second.
With Wise comfortably out in front Adkins took second over Lauer in a close finish. Finishing fourth through tenth were Jeff Rankin, Barry Kitts, Dean Wingrove, Heath Warren, George Klintworth, Michael Linn, and Terry Styer.
The top five Mini-Wedge points finale saw Will Holland take the top spot over Martin, Gibson, Jr., Samantha Roush, Cameron Roush, and Abby White. Will Holland once again took the feature win, this time in a hard fought battle with early leaders Martin Gibson, Jr. and Cole Mayle. Mayle led laps five through eight, but Holland took over on lap nine and stormed on to the win. Rounding out the finish were Will Holland, Cole Mayle, Tanner McLaughlin, Corey DeLancey, Cameron Roush, Martin Gibson, Jr., Samantha Roush, and Skylar Zimmerman

Burdette Bounce Competition/ Conrad Conquers AMRA Mods

STEWART, OHIO-A great night of racing, featuring the ARCA Truck Series stars, culminated with a classic AMRA Late Model battle won by young second generation driver K.C. Burdette. The win by Burdette breaks a string of wins by someone named Chris--either Chris Carpenter or Chris Garnes. In the AMRA Modifieds Vince Conrad brought home the big feature win.

The ARCA trucks set the stage first and ran a 50 lap event, cut short by a small truck count.

On a hot muggy July evening last Friday night the ARCA Truck Series made their inaugural visit to Billy Jarrell’s Skyline Speedway in southern Ohio for race number 5 of the 12 race schedule.

Practice was not a good indication of how well the night would go as many of the Truck Series drivers had a hard time figuring out the ultra slick 3/8 mile dirt oval. That had all changed by feature time as all 50 laps were run under green, no yellows and all but 2 trucks running at the end.

Belleville MI’s Craig Meyers started on the pole and led the first lap. He was quickly overtaken by third starting Brad Yunker on lap 2. Yunker led the next 7 laps before dirt track ace Frank Wilson Jr. of Belmont WV grabbed the lead. Wilson’s lead was short lived as the hard charging Tim Schafer powered by and took the lead on lap 12. Schafer extended his lead and seemed to be in control of the race until fast qualifier South Park PA’s Chris Bailey Jr. worked his way up from his 9th starting position to grab the lead on lap 32. It looked like it would be a three-way battle to the end between Bailey, Yunker and Schafer but Schafer spun late in the race and lost a lap to the leaders as did Wilson.

Yunker appeared to be closing in on Bailey but ran out of laps as Chris Bailey Jr. took his second victory in the ARCA Truck Series this season in the family-owned C.A. Bailey Excavating Chevrolet. Strong running Brad Yunker of Maumee Ohio finished 2nd in his Owens Community College/Champion Credit Union Chevrolet followed by “mister consistency” Bill Withers in the Withers Foreign Auto Chevy in third. Fourth went to Craig Meyers in his Classic Racing Coupes/Regency Kennels Dodge followed by Kenny Kirsch, Jr., in his NAPA Legend Battery/Kirsch Automotive Chevrolet. Tim Shafer recovered to finish sixth in the G’s Pizza World-Double “S” Racing Chevy.


Late Model driver Jeff Burdette had to be proud. Both of his sons sat on the front row for the exciting 25-lap event. K.C. Burdette aboard the Freddie Carpenter C-4, numbered with a K.C. 44 for the evening's event got the jump on younger brother Colten. Colten held his own for several laps in second, but after a lap eleven caution waved for Ralph Withem, veteran Chris Garnes too over second on the restart. Garnes was up from seventh position in one of many strong charges.
Two laps later Chris Carpenter rocketed into the mix. Carpenter was up from 11th to third, and advancement of eight positions, a drive that allowed him to share hard-charger honors with Travis Brookover up from 18th to 11th. Scott Wolfe bagged Larry Bond and Jeff Burdette for sixth after a twelfth place start. That ignited a three-way battle for fourth between Roy Roush, Colten Burdette and Wolfe. Roush finally passed Burdette on the last lap for fourth. Bub Crum and Nick Corbitt had strong runs into the top ten, while Larry and Andy Bond fought hard for seventh.
No one however, could stop the high-flying K.C. Burdette. Garnes and Carpenter nipped at his heels, but Burdette was the class of the field on this night. Rounding out the top ten were Burdette, Garnes, Carpenter, Roy Roush, Colton Burdette, Scott Wolfe, Larry Bond, Nick Corbitt, Andy Bond, and Bub Crum.
In the exciting AMRA Modified main, Vince Conrad led flag to flag to make it a clean sweep after the young driver also won his heat. Conrad got the jump on veteran J.P. Roberts and blasted into the lead, first holding off Roberts then the craft Doug Henry. Jeremy Blake got by Roberts on lap five and made a bid at Henry. Conrad was unshakeable as he fended off competitors for the big Skyline win. Kenny Johnson, the AMRA point leader, blitzed from 12th to fourth, but his run ended their. Frank Roush was having a great night with Darin Roush just a couple positions back in eighth. Jason Armes, in a rare Skyline appearance, made his track time worth the effort as the Belle, WV driver blitzed from 15th to sixth.
Lots of passing took place througout the race, however, all eyes were on the top five positions. When it all panned out Conrad come home the winner ahead of Henry, Blake, Johnson and Roush. Jason Armes, J.P Roberts, Darren Roush, Toby Roush, and Curt Stacy rounded out the top ten. Armes was hard charger of the race.

Smith Takes OVSCA Main, Garnes Garners LM's

Johnson doubles in Mods, Wilson, Adkins, White, Staats win!

 Skyline Speedway Results  May 28, 2010  
STEWART, OHIO-The thunder roared and so did veteran Chillicothe, Ohio Danny Smith as the veteran outlaw driver claimed the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association $3,000-to-win "Thunder Thirty" at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night. In the Late
Model main Evans, WV driver Chris Garnes stormed from 11th to first in claiming the win, passing Chris Carpenter with two laps to go. Kenny Johnson claimed both ends of the Malta AMRA Modifieds, while Ryan Wilson (Pure Stocks), Tommy Adkins (4
Cylinders), and Abby White (Mini-Wedges) claimed the support features.
       In the OVSCA sprint main Hartford, Ohio's Dale Blaney took the initial lead with Josh Davis close in tow. Like a lion in wait, Davis stalked Blaney for the first 14 laps, then shortly after a restart Davis briefly took the lead. Another restart set the
stage for Danny Smith who overcame both Blaney and Davis on lap 16 and rode onward to victory.
Davis tried Smith on another restart, but Smith just had too much power driving off the turns in posting the win. Blaney exited on lap 20 with a flat tire, poising Cole Duncan, Keith Baxter, and Jim Nier for top ten finishes. Nier had charged from 11th to
5th in a great driver, while Baxter and Duncan sparred throughout the race. Rounding out the top ten were Smith, Davis, Duncan, Baxter, Nier, Brian Smith, Jimmy Stinson, Kory Crabtree, Dave Dickson, and Eddie Slone. Dickson was the race hard-charger in
a 17th to 9th place run.
       In the AMRA Late Models, young St. Albans, WV driver Nick Dohm got the jump on pole-sitter Chris Carpenter and
led the first 22-laps of an all green run. Dohm, the youngest of the Dohm siblings at 16, lost the handle on lap 23, setting up an exciting finish. Chris Carpenter inherited the lead and led the 23rd circuit, but Chris Garnes was on a charge. Picking off cars
throughout the race, Garnes finally blasted by as Carpenter and Audie Swartz fought it out for the top spot. Garnes got Carpenter the next circuit and blasted on to the win. Larry Bond and K.C. Burdette passed Scott Wolfe for
third and fourth on the 13th round. Freddie Carpenter had a top three wrapped up, but got into the wall on the 23rd circuit. Bond roared on to second place as Garnes, Bond, Carpenter, Andy Bond, KC Burdette, Roy Roush, Scott Wolfe, Dan Morrison, Tony
Roush, and Travis Brookover rounded out the top ten.
       Kenny Johnson was sizzling Friday night as he took both ends of the Malta AMRA modifieds, claiming the regular main after a battle with Doug Henry, Jason Montgomery, Kenny Riddle, and Robert Garnes. Johnson had earlier claimed the make-up
main from May 7th over Rick Venham, Robert Garnes, Jeremy Berwanger, Doug Henry, Mike McPherson, Jeremy Roush, Mark Luning, Jeremy Blake, Mike Sprouse, and Kurt Stacy.
In the night's regular main Johnson had the edge on the point, but the battle for second was a battle. Henry finally won the battle for second after a race-long fight with Jason Montgomery, and Robert Garnes. Robbie Evans and Rick Venham also had
good runs. Rounding out the top ten were Kenny Johnson, Doug Henry, Jason Montgomery, Robert Garnes, Robbie Evans, Rick Venham, Jeremy Roush, Kenny Riddle, Mark Luning, and Kurt Stacy.
       Ryan Wilson has been the king of the first half of the season. Wilson reigned once again Friday after a long battle with Rick VanDyne and Jeremy Blake. Rounding out the top ten were Wilson, VanDyne, Blake, Curt Reck, Gary Gould, Shane Roush, Jerrod Willis, Justin Sinnett, and George Klintworth.
       Tom Adkins reigned supreme once again in the FWD Four Cylinders. The Portland native blasted in the lead and never
looked back. Rounding out the top ten were Adkins, Chris Lauer, Brandon Davis, George Klintworth, Barry Kitts, Tyler Emmelhainz, Jeff Rankin, Tony Gilkey, Dean Wingrove, and Denzil Baker.
       Abby White won the mini-wedge main. Rounding out the top ten were Abby White, Tyler Evans, Coleman Evans, Cameron Roush, Samantha Roush, Darryl Murphy, Skylar Zimmerman, Nathan Carpenter, and Martin Gibson Jr.. Sydney Staats
won the blue clone mini wedge main in the following order: Sydney Staats, Hunter Cline, Corey Miller.

Dennis Adkins takes "Mini-20 Invite" Carpenter Claws "Castiron 50"

Nier Nixes Smith while Blake, T. Adkins, Wilson, Gibson win A's
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO- South Parkersburg, WV driver and young gun Chris Carpenter claimed one of his biggest wins-ever in the "Cast-iron 50" $1,500-to-win steel block special, claiming the win in dominant fashion at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. Piketon, Ohio's Jimmy Nier outgunned Danny Smith for the OVSCA 410 sprint car A-main, while Portland, Ohio's Dennis Adkins claimed the "Mini'20" Invitational for Four Cylinders. Tommy Adkins won the make-up Four Cylinder main, Jeremy Blake won the AMRA Modified feature, and Ryan Wilson won the Pure Stocks.
It was a family affair for the Adkins family as the core group of second and third generation Adkins' turned out in honor of racing pioneer Gene Adkins. Friday was "Gene Adkins Tribute Night", honoring the long-ime champion of the 'Sixties thru Eighties'.
Dennis Adkins and Tommy Adkins both of Portland brought the field to the green flag and battled side by side until the first caution, while Gene (Jr.) 'Grumpy' Adkins held down the third spot of the Mini-20 paying $600 to win. By lap eight, cousins Dennis and Tommy Adkins pulled away from the rest of the field, while Jeremy Krouskopf battled Grumpy and Chris Lauer for third.
The third member of the Adkins linage finally broke away for third for a 1-2-3 Adkins shutout. (Ryan Adkins was also 6th) The Gene Adkins ceremony appropriately took place in victory lane after the race. "I want to dedicate this race to Uncle Gene," said Dennis Adkins. When asked what the key to the win was, "Something to win for and just plain 'hard driving'."
Rounding out the top ten were Dennis Adkins, Tommy Adkins, Grumpy Adkins, Chris Lauer, Jeff Rankin, Ryan Adkins, George Klintworth, Ryan Erskine, Barry Kitts,and Denzil Barker.
In the steel block Late Model "Cast-iron 50" 50-lap main, South Parkersburg's Chris Carpenter burst into the lead from his pole start and outraced Roy Roush and father Freddie Carpenter to the start-finish line. The father-son team of Jeff and K.C. Burdette lined up in fourth and fifth in stretching it out over Hall of Fame driver Rick Aukland of Zanesville.
By lap 20 K.C. Burdette began to work Freddie Carpenter for third as Chris Carpenter built up a half track lead by the halfway point. Nick Corbitt also had a good run into the top ten, but Aukland pressured him hard for position. On a lap 25 restart, Freddie Carpenter worked the low side by Roush and one lap later K.C. Burdette followed, dropping Roush to fourth.
Burdette bagged Carpenter on lap 32, while Chris Carpenter sailed to another half track advantage in dominant fashion. Jeff Burdette slowed on lap 40 and exited the event.
A lap 41 caution for Tony Roush set up a shoot-out to the finish. Freddie Carpenter took full advantage in getting the jump on Burdette for second spot. Burdette did not relinquish easy and regained second with three circuits to go.Chris Carpenter, K.C. Burdette, Freddie Carpenter, Roy Roush, Nick Corbitt, Tyler Carpenter, Rick Aukland, Bub Crum, Tony Roush,and Anthony Kincaid completed the top ten. Kincaid came from 17th to tenth for hard charger honors.
Said Carpenter in victory lane, "My car fell off the jackstands and busted the left rear (tire) right before the race. Dad and Tyler were already in their cars and I almost didn't make it out (of the pits), but Bub Crum and his crew helped me and put one of his tires on the car. All, I can say is THANKS!"
Danny Smith has been dominant in the Ohio Valley with four feature wins in the young season, however, Jimmy Nier did his best to end Smith's streak in the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association A-Main. Nier low, Smith high--the duo battled side by side for the first ten laps, when a spinning Chris Myers brought out the first caution.
Smith and Nier continued the battle, but Nier got better grip on the inside groove and raced fearlessly through traffic to garner the win. Charlie Fisher and Kory Crabtree both advanced seven positions into the top ten, while Brian Benson and Eddie Miller had great runs. Jimmy Stinson blasted to third ahead of Crabtree, Fisher, and Benson.
Said Nier, "The key to this win was my crew (Gene Davis) and Billy Jarrell giving me a good car. All I had to do was drive it."
Rounding out the top ten were Jimmy Nier, Danny Smith, Kory Crabtree, Jimmy Stinson, Cole Duncan, Charlie Fisher, Brian Benson, Josh Davis, Wayne McPeek, and Eddie Miller.
In the AMRA Modified main, Jeremy Blake blasted into the early lead and spent much of the race holding off a pair of "ones" in Doug Henry and Kenny Johnson. Johnson took second on lap eight and began the chase for first. Blake held on for the big win ahead of Kenny Johnson, Doug Henry, Robert Garnes, Matt Holcomb,Vince Conrad, Mike McPherson, Jeremy Roush, Rick Venham, Mark Luning, and Joe Hammon.
In the pure stock A-main Ryan Wilson, Marietta pulled away from an early battle with Rick VanDyne and Jeremy Blake. Great racing highlighted the top ten positions, but Blake was best on this race day. The top ten funneled down to Wilson, Rick VanDyne, Jeremy Blake, Curt Reck, Jarrod Willis, Nick Ley, George Klintworth, Levi Woods, Justin Carpenter, Kenny Lilly, and Gary Gould.
Tommy Adkins led flag-to-flag in the Four Cylinder Make-up feature, olding off cousin Dennis Adkins and Chris Lauer in a torrid fight for second. Racine, Ohio driver Brandon Bowling made a late race charge to challenge Lauer for third, but settled for fourth at the finish. Rounding out the top ten were Tommy Adkins, Dennis Adkins, Chris Lauer, Brandon Bowling, Tyler Emmelhainz, George Klintworth, Ken Young, Terry Gilkey, Clint Carsey, and Ryan Donaldson.
After Will Holland broke early, Martin Gibson, Jr. blitzed the field for his first Skyline Mini-Wedge win ahead of Cameron Roush, Abby White, Samantha Roush, Skylar Zimmerman, and Will Holland.
Skyline Speedway continues action next Friday night with Family Night--A family of five (2 adults and up to 3 children get in for $20). For further information visit << www.skylinespeedway.net >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

Flyin' Ryan Wilson Pummels Pure Stock Invite
Chris Carpenter Claims second LM win! Smith takes 2nd OVSCA Sprint Win
Mods and 4 -Cyl succumb to Rain, Holland takes Mini's

STEWART, OHIO-Rocket Man Chris Carpenter, South Parkersburg ran down early leader Chris Garnes on the 14th lap and went on to claim the 25 lap AMRA Late Model main at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. Danny Smith, Chillicothe, Ohio claimed his second Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association win over Jimmy Nier, while Ryan Wilson. Marietta, Ohio claimed perhaps the biggest win of his career in the $800 to win "V-8 Classic" Pure Stock Invitation. Torrential rains wiped out the AMRA modified and FWD Four Cylinder features.
The Four-Cylinders will run double features May 14, while the AMRA Modifieds will run double-features May 21. Next week will be the "Mini-Sizzler" $600 to win feature for FWD Four Cylinders and the make up feature along with Armed Forces Night (Veterans $5 with ID card), the Steel Block LM Spring Sizzler 50, and all regular classes except Super Late Models. No Late Models May 14. The race will also be a "Gene Adkins Tribute" night for the Portland, Ohio driver.
A strong field of cars turned out for the Pure Stock Invitational. Ryan Wilson was 'fast and furious', not that he expressed any road-rage, but his aggressively smooth driving style of attack brought home his biggest feature win. Wilson pulled Blake on the start, but Blake held close for several laps, before Murphy challenged for second. Wilson gained some breathing room
Behind Wilson, were Blake, Murphy, Robbie McCullough, Rick VanDyne, Jeff Fordyce, Barry Brisker, Levi Woods, Gary Gould, Mike Wolford. Robbie McCullough was the hard-charger of the race with a 15th to 4th place run. The charge was one of the best of the evening. Todd Fordyce also had a great 17th to 7th run, advancing ten positions. Also Rick Vandyne recovered from an early spin, kept the car rolling and blitzed to fifth place.
A pre-Midnight rain slowed the action at Skyline Speedway Friday night, relatively speaking. When the track was run in for the Sprint and Late Model features it was lightening fast. After about an hour-ten minute delay the sprint cars hit the track where Danny Smith, the former Danville, IN ace blitzed the field in high flying fashion.
On the first lap, up-and-coming rookie driver Andre Layfield clipped another car, jumped the cushion and went headlong into the concrete fence. The impact initiated a series of three roll-overs and inducted the uninjured Layfield into the "roll-over club." The race resumed as Smith got the jump on Dave Dickson who stuck with Smith for a few laps. Dickson held second to lap nine as Smith pulled away. Jimmy Nier took over second from a 8th place start and tried to reel in Smith.
Smith was again the master of the 3/8 mile red clay oval, blitzing to his second OVSCA win in the last 3 weeks.
Roudning out the top ten were Smith, Nier, Jimmy Stinson, Aaron Higgins, Dave Dickson , Mitchell Harble, Kory Crabtree, Charlie Fisher, Josh Davis, and Eddie Slone. Aaron Higgins was hard charger of the race with a 16th to 4th place run.
In the Late Model main Chris Carpenter, South Parkersburg ran down early leader Chris Garnes on the 14th lap and went on to claim the 25 lap AMRA Late Model main over yet another star studded field. Garnes got the jump on outside pole sitter Travis Brooker as the latter filed into second until Carpenter took the runner-up slot on lap five. Larry Bond had yet another great run to third, but the main action saw 12th place starter Freddie Carpenter charger from 12th to 4th place.
If Carpenter's wall glazing charge wasn't enough K.C. Burdette burst from 15th to 6th to claim Hard Charger honors in another great run. Veteran Audie Swartz, the 2009 Champ, held steady for a solid top five while Dan Morrison, Nic Corbitt, and Roy Roush battled hard for top ten finishes. Rounding out the top ten were Carpenter, Chris Garnes, Larry Bond, Freddie Carpenter, Swartz, Burdette, Brookover, Morrison, Corbitt, and Roy Roush.
Will Holland claimed the Mini-wedge main over Jason Gillian. Rounding out the top ten were behind Holland and Gillian were Coleman Evans, Cameron Roush, Abby White, Martin Gibson Jr., Samantha Roush, and Darryl Murphy.

McGuire Strikes in Thunder Forty
Duncan OVSCA Sprint Victor

Support wins to Brisker, Blake, Adkins, Gibson

Skyline Speedway Results April 30  
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-Grayson, Kentucky's Josh McGuire blitzed the field in the 'Thunder Forty' for AMRA Late Models Friday night at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. Grove City, Ohio driver Cole Duncan won the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association 410 sprint main, while Jeremy Blake claimed the AMRA modifieds, Barry Brisker took the Pure Stocks, and Tommy Adkins claimed the Four Cylinders. 119 cars flooded the pits for the sizzling night of competition, while one of the largest Skyline crowds in years came out for the evening's festivities.
      The 'Thunder Forty' Late Model Invitational for AMRA Late Models saw Grayson, KY driver Josh McGuire claim the $2,000 paycheck over another hard-charger, Chris Garnes of Evans, WV. The 40-lap affair had just one caution, a lap-20 ride into the uke tires by young Nick Dohm as McGuire dominated all stages of the event.
      While McGuire, Garnes, Carpenter, and Jeff Burdette battled it out early, K.C. Burdette and Larry Bond were pushing hard through the field. Burdette came from 12th to third at the finish, while Bond, the hard charger, blasted from 14th to fourth and a dramatic Bond-like effort. But early on Garnes, Carpenter, Jeff Burdette, and Freddie Carpenter plundered for position.
      McGuire was straight and fast on the 3/8 mile bullring that took rubber as the race progressed, tightening up the chassis on many of the competitors. Thus, several grooves developed on the rubber clad surface. McGuire adjusted best in leading flag to flag for his 9th Skyline feature win.
South Parkersburg driver Chris Carpenter, last week's winner, was a strong fourth ahead of Dad 'Fast Freddie Carpeter, Jeff Burdette, Cory Conley, Tony Roush, and Dan Morrison.
      McGuire said, "It's a new car and I knew this was the place to shake it down. I love Skyline and ole C.J. knows best (of his C.J. Rayburn Chassis). The car was great all through the race."
"I needed a win. Now, I can eat Peanut Butter and Jelly instead of crackers," the veteran laughed.
      Youngster Cole Duncan, Grove City, Ohio drove like a veteran in claiming the second-ever OVSCA 25-lap feature over last week's winner Danny Smith. By the halfway mark, Duncan had run into lapped traffic, where he did a superb job of distancing himself from the field.
      On lap 16, veteran Greg Mitchell clipped the turn three tires and did a few endo's before landing upright. The caution bunched up the field, putting lapped cars to the end of the pack for a 9-lap shoot-out to the finish. Josh Davis, OVSCA frontrunner, got a great jump and challenged Smith for second, perhaps giving Duncan the break he needed to outrun Smith to the checkered.
      In the last half of race fourth place Aaron Higgins advanced five spots as did teammate Jimmy Stinson, putting two Billy Jarrell cars in the top five. Higgins edged Davis out for third, while Kory Crabtree, Andre Layfield, and Sam Ashworth all put on a great show to finish in the top ten. Behind winning Duncan were Smith, Higgins, Davis, Stinson, Crabtree, Layfield, Ashworth and a hard charging Brian Benson. Higgins made it his second week in a row on leave from his NASCAR Modified stint in California.
      Duncan, the Grove City High School senior said, "It's our first win of the season. We like what the series (OVSCA) is doing, but we are going to also hit some other big races across the area. Tonight, I knew if I could hit my spots and hold my line on the bottom, I would be ok. I tried to save the tires under the yellow, and have some rubber under me at the end. I think that made the difference."
      Jeremy Blake, Guysville, Ohio, calls it a "soft right foot", but his driving ability is equally impressive as Blake battled last week's winner Rick Venham, Jr. of Marietta. Blake survived several yellows in claiming the 20-lap Malta AMRA modified main event.
Blake stretched it out over second place Venham late in the race as Mike McPherson and Virginia driver Russell Erwin diced it out for position. Garnes began to close the gap on Venham, but Blake had nothing but clear sailing out in front of the pack at the end.
      Jeremy Blake roared on for the win while Venham, Robert Garnes, Mike McPherson, Russell Erwin, Cliff Crank, Thomas Sigler, Dusty Boley, Jeremy Roush, and Jeremy Berwanger rounded out the top ten.
      Barry Brisker went from "Zero" to "Hero" in a hurry. Brisker looped it on the first lap and went to the tail of the 19 car field. With two laps to go, Brisker took over leader Jeff Fornash and Rick VanDyne followed in tow. Briskers hard-charger award stemmed from his run from last to first, sparking announcer Bruce Hines to cite Brisker's bottom run as a "bottom feeder on steroids."
      Prior to the race-winning pass, Fornash had anchored the lead with Brisker and VanDyne battling sometimes 3-wide. Another top runner, Ryan Wilson the season opening winner exited with a flat tire. Brisker made the pass and went on to the 15-lap win over VanDyne, Jeff Fornash, Jeremy Blake, Levi Woods, Shane Roush, Gary Gould, George Klintworth, Kenny Lilly, and Richard Wilson.
     In the Four Cylinder main Portland's Tommy Adkins made it two-for-two over Chris Lauer, renewing a rivalry from year's past. Both drivers, at the top of their games, continue to put on a show while Tyler Emmelhainz, Adkins' cousin (Racing legend Gene Adkins' grandson), anchored a strong third. At the finish they came across the line in that order ahead of George Klintworth and Donnie Bartlett.
      Jeff Rankins early success resulted in a citation to the tail, where he ran out of time to recover for a top ten. Rounding out the top ten were Adkins, Lauer, Emmelhainz, George Klintworth, Donnie Bartlett, Brandon Bowling, Terry Gilkey, Keith Marlow, Jonathan Arnold, and Dean Wingrove.
      Skyline will have an $800 to win Pure Stock Invitational and Mother's Day Festivities next Friday May 7, where the Speedway will honor cancer survivors as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Night. May 14 will be a Tribute to Gene Adkins and a Four Cylinder $600 to win Invitational. All out of town drivers, especially next week's Pure Stock Invitation particpants are asked to review the rules before participation.

Skyline Speedway Results 4/23/2010

Danny Smith and Chris Carpenter Claim "Twin 30's", Smith 1st-ever OVSCA Victor
Venham, Wilson, and Adkins Take Support Features
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-The skies were stormy, but the "Thunder and Lightening" came from the on-track fireworks where Chillicothe, Ohio's Danny Smith blitzed the field to become the first-ever Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association winner and Chris Carpenter, South Parkersburg, WV claimed the second half of "Twin 30's" in the Late Model "Spring Thaw" 30-lap feature at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway Friday night. Marietta's Rick Venham, Jr. claimed a narrow win over Kenny Johnson in the AMRA Modifieds, Flyin' Ryan Wilson (Marietta, OH) took the Pure Stock win and Portland's Tommy Adkins claimed the Four Cylinder main.
Threatening skies did not keep away a large crowd and large field of cars. Racing was run off without a hitch including the last 77 laps of feature racing which all green flag racing and sent the crowd home at 11:05 when Adkins pulled into victory lane for the final feature.
The track was in great shape as both the OVSCA sprints and late models closed in on the respective track records. Smith set fast time in the sprints with an 11:08 clocking or average speed of 127 miles per hour. Heat races produced excellent side-by-side, flat-foot racing as the middle groove remained tacky much of the evening on the Skyline high-banks.
One of the original World of Outlaws, veteran Danny Smith, formerly of Danville, Indiana proved to be the class of the field as he blitzed to the inaugural Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association main event. The history-making run saw Smith out-gun his nearest rival, Chillicothe, Ohio driver Josh Davis who challenged early and on the restart, but was no match for Smith. Still Davis maintained a great run to earn a solid second.
Smith lapped every car in the 17-car field up to sixth place Andre Layfield, the rookie sensation who just moved up to the powerful 410's after a successful modified career. The 30-lapper, paying $1,500 to win was run with only two cautions. While Smith was blasting off into a zone of his own with Davis locked into his sights, the rest of the pack was left to grapple for position. Vandalia's Jimmy Stinson, Kory Crabtree, and Aaron Higgins all battled hard for a top five. Higgins was in from California on an off weekend from the NASCAR West Modified series he is participating in. Higgins was in the Billy Jarrell #51, a team car to Stinson's #84 and premier engine builder Charlie Fisher's #22.
Andrea Layfield was the hard charger of the race with intense pressure from Dave Dickson and Brandy Bower for that top honor. Rounding out the top ten were Danny Smith, Josh Davis, Jim Stinson, Kory Crabtree, Aaron Higgins, Andre Layfield, Dave Dickson, Brandy Bower, Charlie Fisher, and Brian Benson.
Said Smith in victory lane, "It's an honor to win the first race in this deal. I'd like to run the series, but actually I'm just taking it one week at a time. The track was very good, especially for the first night out. The car was right and I was able to run just about anywhere on the track."
The Hoosier/Hoosier Ohio Valley series met with great success with more members expected to join and several other cars damaged last week expected to join the series in the following weeks.
From start to finish, three-wide racing highlighted the $1,500-to-win, 30-lap late model main as Chris Carpenter got the jump on pole-sitter Chris Garnes and runner up Jason Montgomery. Audie Swartz, last year's champ, moved into the fray as Carpenter, Garnes and Swartz went three wide, until Swartz moved into second on lap five and took over the top spot on lap six.
Leading laps 6 through 10, Swartz led a three-car Carpenter/Montgomery battle. Carpenter regained the lead on lap 11 when Zack Dohm scuffled with Montgomery for fourth as Garnes shuffled back to sixth. Young Dohm and veteran Swartz battled for second right behind Carpenter in the green-to-checkered battle. On lap 26 Dohm rooted out Swartz for second and now a Carpenter, Dohm, Swartz freight train chugged hard to the finish line.
Rounding out the top ten were Chris Carpenter, Zach Dohm, Audie Swartz, Chris Games, Jason Montgomery, Greg Oliver, KC Burdette, Travis Brookover, Dan Morrison, and Larry Bond. Burdette was hard charger coming from 17th to 7th, while Scott Wolfe came from 16th to 11th.
Said Carpenter of his first Skyline LM win, "Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! I thought Audie was on me the whole way and knew I had to be my best. Come to find out at last it was Zach (Dohm). Thanks to Dad (Freddie), Rocket, Protech, and Truetech and everyone for their support."
When Kenny Johnson is in town, fans know there will be some excitement. Rick Venham, Jr. was none-the-less exciting himself in posting a six-inch win over Johnson at the finish in the Malta AMRA Modifieds. Venham had to be his best and was in what proved to be another green-to-checkered run without a caution.
Venham said, "It's great to get a win, especially when it's this close."
Added Johnson, "This was a good race for the win and a good win for Rick. He raced me clean and deserved the win."
Unretired veteran and former AMRA champ Doug Henry battled hard with Johnson early, then worked hard in holding off challenges from Robert Garnes, Fireball Pinkerton, and Jason Montgomery. A strong field of cars saw Mike McPherson, Jeremy Blake, Matt Holcomb, and Vince Conrad, usually top five cars battling hard for a top ten.
Rounding out the top ten were Rick Venham, Kenny Johnson, Doug Henry, Robert Garnes, Dave Pinkerton, Jason Montgomery, Mike McPherson, Jeremy Blake, Matt Holcomb, and I-77 winner Vince Conrad.
Flyin' Ryan Wilson claimed the 15-lap Pure Stock feature, picking up where he left off last year in his immaculate #00. The Marietta driver held off charges from Rick VanDyne for much of the race before pulling away for the easy win at the end. Reck, Blake, and Brisker all battle hard for position in solid top five runs. Rounding out the top ten were Ryan Wilson, Rick VanDyne, Curt Reck, Jeremy Blake, Barry Brisker, George Klintworth, Levi Woods, Ben Ayers, Perry Snyder, and Kenny Lilly.
Tommy Adkins moved back into his hometown of Portland after a year in Wisconsin. The homecoming was a good one as the former 4-cyl champ put his new mount in victory lane over George Klintworth and Tuppers Plains' Jeff Rankin. While Adkins controlled the gait up front Klintworth, Jeff Rankin, Chris Lauer, Dana Gilkey, Keith Marlow, and Tyler Emmelhainz (Gene Adkins grandson) battled hard for position.
Rounding out the top ten in this exciting division were Adkins, George Klintworth, Jeff Rankin, Chris Lauer, Dana Gilkey, Keith Marlow, Tyler Emmelhainz, Bobby Dennison, Scott Neal, John Rankin, and Barry Kitts.
Skyline Speedway continues action next Friday night with a $2000 to win , 200 to start Late Model Special. For further information visit << www.skylinespeedway.net >> or call 304-539-4410 or the track phone at 740-662-4111.

AMRA to Sanction Skyline Late Models
Joins already established AMRA Modified sanction

By Scott Wolfe

MT. ALTO, WV.-AMRA president Larry Keefer and Skyline Speedway promoter Billy Jarrell have once again joined forces in announcing that Skyline Speedway will be sanctioned by the AMRA Late Model series. The announcement further establishes the growth of the AMRA in the sanctioning of the full bodied stock cars which began last season with Tyler Mountain, WV driver Harold Redman, Jr. picking up the inaugural crown.
      Skyline Speedway has long been a supporter of the AMRA's Modified division, now establishing itself as a supporter of the AMRA Late Models. Skyline Speedway races six divisions weekly as 410 sprint cars, Pure Stocks, Four Cylinders and mini-wedges comprise the Friday night racing card.
      Said Jarrell, "This gives our local drivers a greater chance at earning AMRA National points and thus gives them a chance to earn valuable points' money from AMRA. If it is good for our drivers, then it is also good for Skyline Speedway. Our late model drivers and owners have been extremely supportive of Skyline and a majority of the teams felt this was the thing to do."
     "I am extremely pleased that Skyline has come aboard in the late model division," said Larry Keefer. "We want to expand the late model division to the prestige of the modified division. The AMRA is strong in the fact it is a sanction comprised of the drivers and owners and for the drivers and owners. Many sponsors and track owners have stepped up to the plate in helping this venture grow. Once again, it is a win-win situation for all involved."
      Skyline joins Beckley Motor Speedway, K-C Raceway, Ohio Valley Speedway, Tyler County Speedway, and I-77 Motorsports Park as tracks that sanction both AMRA divisions. Modified tracks include Rocky Top, Skyline Speedway, Elkins Speedway, I-77 Motorsports Park, Eastside Speedway, Potomac Speedway, Beckley Motor Speedway, K-C Raceway, Charleston Speedway, Ohio Valley Speedway, and Tyler County Speedway.
      The AMRA has announced an explanation of awarded points. Only the best 20 AMRA finishes will count in the National point’s championship. Drivers can receive AMRA points at any of the AMRA sanctioned tracks. The driver will take his best twenty weeks. To earn points, a driver must be a member of the AMRA.
      In order to race an AMRA event, drivers must have a temporary ($15) license or a full membership. After four temporary permits are issued a driver becomes an AMRA member and can start earning points. With an initial full membership ($45) a member begins earning points immediately.
      In addition to AMRA points drivers also can take advantage of individual track point funds. Skyline will award a new chassis to its modified and late model points champion in 2010.
Skyline has also expanded its outreach to fans and drivers with a Facebook page, which will announce updates along with the Skyline website.

Tentative Opening Day April 2

Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio is a 3/8 mile high-banked red clay oval nestled deep in the foothills of Southern Ohio between the cities of Athens and Coolville on State Route 50 (The Appalachian Highway). Skyline, now under the new ownership of Billy Jarrell, is expected to see many physical improvements over the next several years. One thing that will not change, however, is the exciting, close racing that takes place every Friday night between late March and early October--even longer if the weather permits.

.....Skyline Speedway features regular Friday night racing in six exciting classes of cars: 410 Super Sprints (Outlaw style), Late Models, Modifieds, Pure Stocks, Fwd Four cylinders, and mini-wedges. No matter what class they run in, Skyline Speedway drivers are the best at what they do. Whether it be as a hobby or racing professionally, drivers are always committed to putting on a show as is the Skyline Speedway staff .

....Throughout the racing season Skyline will host numerous special events featuring some of the nation's top sanctioning bodies. Skyine has played host to the IRS Late Models, The All-Star Circuit of Champions, MACS, AMRA, and many other racing clubs.

McGuire, Wilson, Stotts, Adkins

Take Finals of Harvest 50 weekend   
 
STEWART, OHIO-A big weekend of racing concluding with the 26th running of the Harvest 50 Sunday, Oct 11 at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway where Josh McGuire claimed the 2009 crown and $1,000 bonus for winning the night before. The two days earned McGuire $7,500 for the win, his second consecutive Harvest victory. Benton Ridge, Ohio driver and former All-Star Champ Greg Wilson claimed the 1st annual Thrasher 30 for 410 sprint cars, while Chris Stotts claimed the Malta AMRA Road Warrior Tour season-ending event. Dennis Adkins, Portland, Ohio won the "Pea Picker 30" in the four-cylinders. The night's racing activities were dedicated to the late Hilton Wolfe, Jr. as a memorial tribute.
On a track that was about 2.3 seconds slower from the night before, Josh McGuire figured out the best set-up. His Kuntz Engines/C.J. Rayburn Racecars #41 pulled off the hat trick for the second magical night in a row.
Slower times didn't mean any less of a racy track. For 36 laps Rob Blair, Titusville, PA, Showtime Steve Shaver, Parkersburg, WV; and McGuire of Grayson, KY dueled side-by-side swapping positions with primetime regularity.
Blair led the first eleven rounds in a green-to-checkered run, which saw Shaver blow by to lead the next fifteen circuits with Blair and McGuire on either side. McGuire worked the track and Shaver for a lap 29 pass as Shaver bobbled just enough for a brief piece of second to Blair.
Shaver recovered as he and McGuire started to edge away from Blair. Shaver retook the lead on lap 31, relinquished it back to McGuire on 33, then led one more turn by just inches on lap 34.
The slicing and dicing all the while took its toll on the high-energy battle. Shaver tried McGuire on the outside the next two circuits then on lap 37 had something break on his suspension.
From then on it was a McGuire cakewalk to the finish with Blair a distant, but noteworthy second. The hard charger of the race was Zach Dohm, Cross Lanes, WV who zoomed from 18th to third after claiming a B-main win. Freddie Carpenter, Jason Montgomery, Tyler Carpenter, and Chris Carpenter swept by Tim Dohm and Doug Drown, then engaged in a bitter battle for position. When it all shook out, it was McGuire, Blair, Zach Dohm, Freddie Carpenter, Jason Montgomery, Tyler Carpenter, Chris Carpenter, Tim Dohm, Doug Drown, and Andy Bond.
"I was just hoping 'no cautions'. We set the car up a little loose and knew it would tighten up if I got some heat in the tires," said McGuire. Steve and I and Robbie had a great thing going there for a while. I'm glad to get the win. Somehow we always manage to find a way to win here, but winning tonight is a big deal for us."
Said second place Blair "We had a good set up but not a great one. Josh and I got together, and the car just didn't turn as well after that. I probably knocked it out of tow just a little, but we like this track and are glad to come home second."
Saturday night's 410 winner Brandon Wimmer was chugging toward a transfer after posting a poor qualifying time that included a 360 in time trials. The Fairmount, IN driver lost out on the sprint car bonus after taking a wild end-over-end ride in turn four of his heat shortly after making a transfer from a tail start.
At the start of the sprint main--the first Thrasher 30-- Aaron Higgins, Waverly, OH bolted into the lead over outside pole sitter Dale Blaney. It too was a great race early, as Blaney closed in on Higgins only to have a lap seven caution. On the restart Higgins again edged away, but was quick to catch lapped traffic. Blaney again blasted around for a brief lead only to have Higgins shut the door. A couple laps unfolded in this nip-and-tuck style, then as both the leaders slowed in traffic eventual winner Greg Wilson put the trio three wide in turn two.
Wilson won the drag race into three and from there on was off to the races. Higgins held second, but Mike Linder shuffled Blaney back to fourth. Blaney came on a midway to bag Linder for second as Higgins saw his tires go away. Rob Chaney and Jimmy Stinson had good late-race runs as Wilson roared on to victory over Blaney, Linder, Chaney, Stinson, Higgins, Danny Smith, Cale Conley, Dave Dickson, and Cole Duncan.
"I felt the car getting some grip at the bottom and knew that if we got by Dale we had a pretty good shot at the win," said Wilson. "I am glad you made the sprint cars a part of this show. It's good to be able to come down here and get the win for the fans."
The hard charger of the race was Cale Conley who came from last to eighth.
The MALTA AMRA Nationals saw Albany, Ohio driver Chirs Stotts put the Carthage/Hovis Engines/Pierce Chassis on the pole for a flag-to-flag win. Stotts earlier picked up the AMRA Road Warrior Tour win July 3, then chalked up Sunday's victory which determined the final points champion for the Road Warrior Tour. Early calculations show that Doug Henry, Beverly, OH brought home the crown. Jeremy Berwanger was both the Skyline Speedway champ and the AMRA National Champion.
Chris Stotts noted, "The track locked down and the car just really took off. I was hoping the tires wouldn't seal over, but we were able to keep the heat in the tires on the cautions and hold on. I could hear someone back there the last part of the race, so I was really glad to see the checkered wave."
The best race for position behind the dominate Stotts was among Andy Bond, Rob Stambaugh, and Kenny Johnson. That triumvirate diced it up for position-swaps throughout the race. Joe Cox and Del Cunningham shared the hard charger of the race award, each picking up ten positions.
Behind second place Bond were Rob Stambaugh, Kenny Johnson, Dave Defibaugh, Mike McPherson, Del Cunningham, Dusty Boley, Will Rowe, and Joe Cox.
The "Pea Picker 30 for Four Cylinders started out with a wild melee and hard barrel role by Shawn McClain. The race was an all-Adkins family affair after Tommy Adkins bagged Tony Plaugher for third. Dennis Adkins then separated himself from the field over cousin Grumpy Adkins just in time for Tommy A. to take third. Grumpy closed the gap in the last few laps, but couldn't get a run on his fleet-footed kin Dennis.
The race of the night was between Tommy Adkins and Andy Parks who battled the last 12 laps in door rubbing fashion. Rounding out the top ten behind the Adkins trio were Andy Parks, Tony Plaugher, David Banks, Jeff Rankin, C.J. Crossan, George Klintworth, and Joe Adams. Jeff Rankin was the hard charger of the race in a 17th to 7th run.
Skyline Speedway will race every Friday night next season, but most likely has closed for the 2009 campaign.

McGuire, Wimmer, Sayre take Night One of Harvest 50 weekend  
Skyline Speedway Results Saturday, Oct. 10
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-When Brandon Wimmer and Josh McGuire nearly eclipsed their respective track records, fans and the competition knew it was going to be a barnstorming night at Billy Jarrell's Skyline Speedway. The track was superfast from the Friday rains. Ironically, both Wimmer in the 410 sprints and McGuire in the Late Models won their respective features in high-flying style. Rod Sayre held off Kenny Johnson by a nose in the super-exciting Malta AMRA Modified main. All three drivers will be eligible for a $1,000 bonus should they win today, Sunday, OCt 11 on the Skyline high-banks.
In the lightning-fast sprint races, Jimmy Nier claimed the fast-car dash that included cars for the All-Stars and the World of Outlaws. Th dash was run in just two-tenths over a minute. Greg Mitchell and Alec Martin were flip victims, but were able to make repairs for the B-Main.
Jimmy Nier led the first four laps with Danny Smith and Wimmer at his side. FAST Champ Craig Mintz caught a competitors wheel in turn four and flipped a couple times, while at the same time Dale Blaney caught the wheel of a slowing car and rolled in turn four. Both drivers were uninjured. Nier led another marker until Wimmer broke loose from the 3-way battle and bolted into the lead. Wimmer in the Rick Ferkel #0 J&J/Griff's Engines care went on to a blistering victory in lapping all, but the top six cars.
"The track was as good as you could get it after all of this rain," said Wimmer. "It was really choppy in turns one and two. I just had to use the only trick in my book to keep going, just 'Cowboy up'."
"I'd like to thank Rick and Cathy Ferkel for a chance in their car for this 1st visit to Skyline. I just tried to keep a straight line straight as the key to getting through the traffic. Thanks to Skyline and the staff for getting this race in tonight."
No passing at Skyline? No one told young Cole Duncan. Duncan, who had a hot-lap miscue and a near-miss in his heat was on a crusade as he charged from 16th to fourth to earn-heard charger honors and put on a show for the fans. Behind Wimmer were Danny Smith, Jim Nier, Cole Duncan, Jack Sodeman Jr, Mark Keegan, Wes McGlumphy, Dallas Hewitt, Aaron Higgins, and B-Main winner Brian Benson.
The late model feature and set-up race for the Harvest 50 was a barnerburner early, and a sleeper in the later stages. McGuire in the McGuire Speedshop Rayburn #41 jumped into an early lead of two laps, then Showtime Steve Shaver put it on the high-side, and blitzed by to lead the next two circuits. All the while Greg Oliver, the Jackson Ironman, slipped by McGuire for second. McGuire recovered and out of nowhere picked off Oliver on one end of the track and made Shaver his victim a lap later.
Shaver later fell out of the race with a broken suspension, but by this time all eyes were on the high-flying Chris Garnes who blasted from 14th to second before the race was done. For a time it seem like Garnes could pull off the upset, but either his tires faded or the track went away in his up-high line. Garnes was the race hard charger.
Doug Drown, Wooster, Ohio came from 10th in the Malcuit House car #79 to finish third ahead of Harold Redman, the 2009 AMRA LM Champion. Redman held Drown off for third for some time, then engaged in a race-long battle with Larry Bond and Roy Roush in a 3-way tilt for fourth. Behind McGuire were Garnes, Doug Drown, Harold Redman Jr, Larry Bond, Roy Roush, Ralph Withem, Travis Brookover, Nick Corbitt, and Mike McDaniel. Brookover made some big strides in coming from the back to a top ten.
Said McGuire shouting, "Rayburn Racing does it Rough!"
"After all the times I've run here, I've figured out you have to run it low, no matter what the track conditions. The cautions gave me a chance to rest. Tonight was a night you had to stand up on the wheel and drive. It was taken it's toll. My only concern was running through the rough to battle the lapped traffic, but I knew what the car had to do it. Really, I'd never thought we could have raced tonight. Getting the track in shape was a huge accomplishment for the track crew."
Rod Sayre, Parkersburg, WV is a great driver, no doubt, but a little push of the divine nature may have made the difference Saturday night when the hot-shoe claimed his third MALTA AMRA main of the year. Sayre was running away from the field until a lap six caution. With the field bunched up the complexion of the race changed completely. Kenny Johnson shot high out of 5th to third, nearly bagging second place Jeremy Blake. Upon the turn four exit, Blake blasted by Sayre to lead for two laps when his machine began to belch some smoke. Sayre retook the lead as the three-cars made a Stealth Tri-angle of wheel-to-wheel action.
Suddenly, Blake made a sharp right to the pits, directly in front of a full-throttled Johnson. Johnson took evasive action, but J.P. Roberts filled the void and nearly got by Sayre on the inside of one.
Four laps later Johnson took over second and the last five laps was a Tri-way sprint to the finish with Johnson dogging Sayre every step of the way. Johnson led briefly on lap 18, but scrubbed off just enough speed in turn two to hinder his chances of a win. Still, he fought back on the high side of the pushing Sayre as Sayre won by no more that inches at the finish.
"I'd like to thank God for getting us here to victory lane and for a great race car," said Sayre. "About half way I had trouble turning the car, but I made up my mind I was gonna win or jump the fence trying. Tonight is the hardest I have ever run, Kenny really pushed me to the limit. We had to battle not only the other cars, but the track conditions. I'm practically exhausted."

Shaver Shows’em at Harvest Prelim

Evans Earns AMRA National Win/Wilson wallops Pure Stocks
Adkins takes Four-Cylinders and Ron Pickens Mini-Wedge winner

Skyline Speedway Results 9-19-09
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-When it's "Show Time" Steve Shaver (Parkersburg, WV) has on his game face, and Saturday night Showtime Shaver was all Smiles after winning the 30-lap $3,000-to-win feature during opening night festivities before a large crowd at Skyline Speedway's Harvest 50 weekend. The Malta AMRA Road Warrior Tour Nationals kicked off the weekend with veteran Robbie Evans making the sweep and picking up the $1,000 pay check for round one. Straight in from his new home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin former area driver Tommy Adkins blasted the Four Cylinder feature, while Ryan Wilson picked up his 8th Skyline Speedway Pure Stock main and sealed the 2009 points championship.
There were a couple dominating heat events, but several preliminaries brought the crowd to life with down-to-the wire finishes. The evening's racing activities and weekend was a "Memorial Tribute to Hilton "Big Fooze" Wolfe, Jr. a former driver/owner/fan who passed away July 29. When asked what the key to victory was the amicable Shaver replied, "It was easy. Fooze was with me every step of the way, all I had to do was hang on and enjoy the ride. This win is for him." Shaver completed the clean sweep with a fast time, heat win, and feature win. Cars from six different states competed in all divisions of the program.
Early in it was apparent that the main battle was between Josh McGuire and Shaver, the past three winners of the Harvest 50. Shaver jumped into the lead briefly at the start, then McGuire filled the void and led the next 14 circuits. McGuire, Grayson, KY had actually stretched out a six car-length lead until Shaver's tires kicked in and he began to reel in the speedy Kentuckian. Laps 9-14 saw Shaver and McGuire battle ferociously, until finally Shaver made a daring pass for the lead.
Zach Dohm got into the hunt over the second half of the race as he and McGuire battled for second. By midway points' leader Audie Swartz made it a four-car race. Once in a comfortable lead to lap 19, Shaver found himself in heavy traffic. Dohm and McGuire closed the gap and a wild-west shoot out for number one unfolded on the shuttered streets of Skyline.
Shaver made several great moves in traffic, however, he couldn't shake his pursuers. Several times Mcguire dove low alongside Shaver as the fans responded with resounding cheers. Dohm had his rader locked in for pass, but each time had the door close hard. Shaver threaded the needle one last time between two lapped cars on lap 27, a move that most likely won him the race.
That same maneuver saw the garage door fall hard in the path of McGuire who lifted just enough for youngster Dohm to bag second. The young charger himself then made a last chance bid for the win after the race's only caution set up a two-lap sprint to the finish. Shaver, Dohm, McGuire, and Swartz posted the top four.
Tyler Carpenter blasted from 18th to tenth and earned hard-charger honors. Brother Chris Carpenter advanced several positions to fifth, while Larry Bond and Roy Roush, both early contenders finished sixth and seventh. Freddie Carpenter, Travis Brookover (the I-77 Champion), and Tyler Carpenter rounded out the top ten.
The first round of the MALTA AMRA Road Warrior Tour Nationals went down with a fireball of fanfare. For 28 and-a-half laps, Robbie Evans was the cream of the crop with nearly a half-track lead. The battle for third, however, produced action tighter than a week's worth of New York City refuge jammed into the compacting truck.
Kenny Johnson, Jeremy Blake, Doug Henry, Jeremy Berwanger, and Mike McPherson all slugged it out in a bid for number two. Lap after lap, often three-wide and two deep, the entourage pounded the Skyline clay in torrid fashion. Between laps eight and fourteen Henry and Blake swapped positions four times. By lap 15 Blake seemed to pull away, leaving the rest of the heavy-hitting gang to fight it out.
Evans was the class of the field and marched methodically on toward the win. On lap Blakes valiant run came to an end as he coasted into the infield. Now, Johnson and Henry clashed for second with Berwanger closing the gap in-wait. Some debris slowed the field just as the white flag fell setting up a Green-white-checkered finish.
Evans' lead had dwindled down to inches as every rattle and clank tormented the Mineral Wells driver as a pack of hungry competitors prepared to pounce on its prey. Johnson sat in second, making a bid on Evans on the restart. Johnson nosed up to Evans, but his momentum waivered and Henry took second. At the same time McPherson bagged Berwanger for fourth to earn his third hard-charger award of the year.
Said Evans, "It was easy on the gas, easy on the break. Feathering the pedal was the key tonight. The Good Lord put me in a position to win and I'm grateful." Evans also completed the clean sweep with fast time, a heat win, and feature.
Back in the pack Robert Garnes also advanced six positions in a great run to finish with a top ten. Behind 5th place Berwanger, who most likely locked the AMRA points title, were Louie Krushansky, Brett Hamilton, JC Casto, Andy Bond, and Garnes. All drove consistently fast races in putting on a great show. Only one caution slowed both the Late Model and Modified feature.
In the Pure Stock main, Flyin' Ryan Wilson put his classy mount on auto pilot after taking the lead from the ever-improving Derrick Smith, the first heat winner. Wilson survived several cautions to take his seventh Skyline main of the year and most likely wrap up the 2009 championship.
While Wilson and Smith stretched it out, Tommy Murphy, Jeremy Blake, Curt Reck, Jerred Willis, and Shane Roush did some heavy hand-to-hand battle in the trenches. When the finale shook down, Wilson rode across the line first with Smith in second ahead of Murphy, Blake, Reck, Willis, Roush, Kenny Lilly, Levi Woods, and Randy Bohan. Jeremy Blake advanced nine positions to fourth in earning hard-charger honors.
Wilson said, "It took a lot of hard work to get here in victory lane. There are a lot of great pure stocks, and to win here you have to work hard on and off the track."
Tommy Adkins wanted to make to the "Big Fooze" Memorial to pay tribute to his former teacher. Making the trek from Wisconsin, Adkins, the former Portland native blasted into the lead, but had to hold off hard charges of George Klintworth and Chris Lauer to post the win. Lauer may have had more steam at the finish, but Adkins was twice able to shut the gate and preserve the win.
Behind Adkins and Lauer were David Banks, George Klintworth, Greg King, Tony Plaugher, Ken Young, Dean Wingrove, Nick Dohm, and Roy Roush. Dohm earned hard charger honors in a 17th to 9th place run.
Always putting on a great show, the Mini-Wedges ran for their "money race" Saturday night with each driver receiving $155 compliments of many fine sponsors and track owner Billy Jarrell. Usually running for trophies, the kids have one season-ending money race. Ron Pickens posted the big win ahead of thirteen talented youngsters--Will Holland, Martin Gibson, Cole Mayle, Kyle Bond, Jason Gillian, Abby White, Cameron Roush, Samantha Roush, Lucas Shaw, Nathan Carpenter, Zach Fox, and Skylar Zimmerman.

Higgins Humbles Skyline Sprint, Montgomery Masters Late Models

Johnson AMRA ACE, Wilson, Adkins, and Bond take features wins!Skyline Speedway Results
By Scott Wolfe                  August 28, 2009
STEWART, OHIO-It was off to the races in more than one way as Skyline Speedway beat the rain. Finishing the six-class program before 11:30, Skyline fans saw 19-year-old open-wheel sensation Aaron Higgins (Waverly, Ohio) claim the exciting 410 sprint win. Jason Montgomery, Jackson, Ohio blasted the late model field in superior fashion, while Kenny Johnson (Parkersburg, WV) raked in the Malta AMRA Modified win, Dennis Adkins claimed the Four Cylinders, Ryan Wilson took the Pure Stocks and Kyle Bond claimed the Mini-Wedges.
           Outside polesitter Tyler Carpenter got the initial jump on Jason Montgomery in the star-studded Late Model main, but Montgomery came back to lead lap number one. Audie Swartz and K-C Burdette both bagged Carpenter by a lap-three caution tagged to Roy Roush.
Despite another caution, Montgomery roared to a half-straight lead ahead of nearest competitor Audie Swartz. Burdette ran a solid third, pressuring Swartz early, then left to defend his position over a charging Withem. The Jackson Ironman Montgomery broke Swartz's three-race win streak and rolled into victory lane after a long absence at the Athens County oval. Andy Bond and Steve Bigley also fought hard to overcome advances from Dan Morrison and Tony Roush, while a fading Carpenter held on for a top ten after his tires gave way.
           Swartz, K-C Burdette, Ralph Withem, fast timer Chris Garnes, A. Bond, Bigley, Morrison, Tyler Carpenter, and Tony Roush rounded out the top ten behind the winner Montgomery.
"This one's for Hilton!" smiled Montgomery in victory lane. "We only got to make about half the changes we usually make because the sprint heats went quick, so in the heat we found something (in a new setup). We didn't change much for the feature and the car really hooked up. We may have found a new setup. The key though was to stay on the bottom and keep my nose ahead of Audie on the starts."
           In the 410 sprint main Jimmy Nier led the first lap, but going into turn one teammate Charlie Fisher put a slide job on the double zero. All three Billy Jarrell entries advanced from the dash and were early frontrunners in the main. Fisher led the next four laps before Aaron Higgins took command. Josh Davis and Keith Baxter moved into the third and fourth slots as Higgins ran into traffic on lap seven.
           Accused of playing possum in the dash, Higgins came out in the feature like a streaking Tiger. The talented charger raced to a six car-length lead over Fisher, while Davis and Baxter continued to battle. Davis then reeled in Fisher by the halfway mark. Davis made the pass but a few seconds later Fisher went pitside with a leaking fuel hose. Eddie Slone had yet another strong Skyline finish sandwiched between Stinson and Nier, while Brian Benson won a race-long battle with veteran Dave Dickson and Freddie Staats.
           Higgins rolled on to the stellar win with Davis finishing a strong second over Baxter, Danny Smith, Stinson, Eddie Slone, Nier, Benson, Dickson, and Staats. Wes McGlumphy was the hard charger coming from the tail to 13th.
           "It was the pit crew," laughed Dad Mitch Higgins. "Yes, seriously it was my crew," confirmed Aaron Higgins. "We were without Scott Cool my crew chief tonight. He had surgery and this was for him. Dad did all the work. We didn't have anything in the dash, then Dad made some changes and the car took off. When you have a great car, a great crew and God watching over you, what else do you need?"
           In the MALRA AMRA main Jeremy Berwanger led the first seven laps after a rabid battle with Kenny Johnson. Johnson dogged Berwanger on the high side while Berwanger rode the bottom. Racing so close as to touch, the duo emerged unscathed from the tight racing quarters. Johnson finally wrestled away the lead by lap eight, then had to fend off challenges from Berwanger. As the race progressed Johnson's Shaw Chassis slowly pulled away for a convincing win.
           "We made a slight change after the heat race and I knew Jeremy would run the bottom," asserted Johnson. "I knew I had to go to the middle and just sorta eased it into the turns. The car responded and I was able to pull away at the end."
           Outside pole sitter and first heat winner Mike McPherson held off his boss Jeff Wood, who was storming up through the pack. Roberts, Robert Garnes and Doug Henry dueled for solid finishes, while Jason Brookover charged from deep in the pack to a top ten. Behind Johnson and Berwanger were J.P. Roberts in an 8th to 3rd place run, while Jeremy Blake, McPherson, Wood, Garnes, Brookover (15th to 8th), Doug Henry, and Roger Shadwick rounded out the top ten. Jeff Wood was the hard charger runner-up in a 12th to 6th place run, while Jeremy Blake charged from 16th to fourth for hard charger honors. Like a blue streak, last week's winner was hooked and looked for more laps to finish the job from deep in the pack.
           Adkins and Adkins sounds like a law firm, but the racing Racine duo weren't the only ones laying down the law Saturday night. Outside pole sitter Grumpy Adkins had a short-lived start after a second place the week before. Adkins left the race on the first restart and paved the way for a Dennis Adkins win, his second in a row. While Adkins waltzed uncontested to the win, George Klintworth drove his tail off in defense of second. Chris Lauer challenged with David Banks applying heavy pressure. Klintworth nailed down second behind Adkins, edging Lauer and Banks for position. Jeff Rankin had another great run into the top five ahead of Joe Adams, Josh Salyers, Shawn McClain, Ken Young and Cody Heiss. Young came from 13th to 9th and Adams from 11th to sixth for top charger honors.
           Some call him "Flyin' Ryan", but the racing stats show him as the "Dominator". Ryan Wilson has dominated the Pure Stock racing from June on and won yet another main, his seventh, after overcoming early leader and heat winner Derrick Smith. Smith ran well, but the Wilson energy entry was just one step ahead. Behind Wilson were Smith, Jared Willis, Jeremy Misel up from 8th, Curt Reck, George Klintworth, Barry Brisker up from 10th, Ron Mayle, Tommy Murphy, and Shane Roush. Ron Mayle in Darren Carpenters 1963 Impala was hard charger in a 12th to 8th place run, tying with Brisker and Misel for top passing honors.
           Skyline Speedway continues action next Saturday night September 12 after taking off one week for the Hillbilly 100 . Racing resumes when Skyline makes the switch to Saturdays on the 12th then follows up with the big Harvest 50 weekend Sept. 19 and Sept. 20.

Blake bounces AMRA Road Warriors
Baxter blasts 410 Sprints, Swartz 3-for-3

Skyline Speedway Results   August 21
By Scott Wolfe
STEWART, OHIO-

Another great field of race cars including 32 iron-clad Road Warriors from the Malta AMRA series stormed into Skyline Speedway where Guysville, Ohio driver Jeremy Blake bounced the best in the AMRA Road Warrior Tour. Chillicothe, Ohio driver Keith Baxter captured the 410 Sprint main (his fourth of the season), while Audie Swartz scored his third consecutive win in the Late Models. Blake came back for a win in the Pure Stocks, Dennis Adkins claimed the Four Cylinders, and Kyle Bond won the Mini-Wedge main.
Robbie Evans, Mineral Wells, WV and Jeremy Blake led the Malta AMRA Road Warrior tour into the bullring with Blake taking the lap one lead. Robbie Evans came back to lead the next seven circuits in a vicious duel with Blake. Side-by-side lap after the lap the two combatants fought. Kenny Johnson and Jeremy Berwanger were all within inches of each other for the first four positions, while Doug Henry stood just a car length behind.
Chris Stotts and Jo Cox blasted through the field into the top ten, while Mike McPherson, fresh off a B-main win began a charge from 18th to 13th. Tom Sigler held a top five for several laps before getting shuffled back to seventh amid battles with Jason Brookover, Stotts, Cox, Dave Defibaugh, and Andy Bond.
While Evans continued the duel with Blake, Berwanger and Johnson wagered a high stakes joust for the fourth spot. Johnson at midrace pulled into the Evans-Blake battle, but in the later stages of the event found himself full of Berwanger's #44.
Once Blake got the lead, he never looked back. At one point he stretched his advantage to five car lengths, but Evans reeled him back in for a close finish. Johnson anchored down third ahead of Berwanger, Henry, Brookover, Stotts, Sigler, Cox, and Defibaugh. Cox was named hard-charger of the race while advancing seven positions.
Blake said, "Thanks to my crew Larry, Keith, wife Cindy and my kids. Once again when the track gets like this the key is a soft right foot and easy on the gas. After I got the lead, all I had to do was keep it straight and fast."
The sprit main was a classic Skyline battle. The original start saw Cole Duncan, the dash winner, and Jimmy Nier lead the 18 car field to the green. Duncan was cited for jumping the gun and sent to the tail. Young charger Josh Davis took to the inside after moving to the front row and led the first three laps. In between Kory Crabtree, who recently turned 15-years-old, rode a wheel after a fight for 7th place and flipped a couple times in turn one to bring out the red. Crabtree was ok, but his mount was disabled.
Nier took command on lap four igniting a side-by-side battle with Davis for the next several circuits. Nier led through lap eleven, but two cautions glazed over his tires. An amazing restart saw Gibsonburg's Craig Mintz leapfrog from fourth to second past Keith Baxter and Davis who had begun a battle for second. On lap later Baxter's JSF Landscaping/Will's Painting/PSPS Surveying #1B took over second from Mintz, then sacked Nier a lap later.
Davis continued his charge and was within just a few feet for a 1st place bid until the final laps. Nier and Aaron Higgins the 2009 points' leader battled until Higgins took over 4th on the 19th circuit. Nier held on for 5th ahead of Eddie Slone and Jimmy Stinson. Dave Dickson and Mitchell Harble dueled with Charlie Fisher for several laps in pursuit of a top ten.
Up from 13th Baxter once again had his Tingler Performance/Eagle Chassis 1B on the move. The gusty drive earned him hard-charger honors and the win. But the win didn't come easy. Mintz reeled Baxter in on the high side, while Baxter milked the bottom moisture to perfection.
On the next to last lap Mintz bored his #09 into turn one between Baxter and a lapped car. Mintz pulled alongside, but couldn't make it stick. Mintz made one final bid but came up just shy of Baxter's bumper and the win.
"I didn't see (Craig) at all," said Baxter. "I just knew my car felt good and I could go as hard as I wanted. This old man can still do it."
Baxter added, "I'd like to dedicate this win to Scott's Dad Hilton Wolfe and Dan Reno (who both recently passed away) I'd like to thank my sponsors, my family, and my crew for all of their help. Without them I wouldn't be here."
Rounding out the top ten behind second place Mintz were Davis, Aaron Higgins, Jimmy Nier, Eddie Slone, Jimmy Stinson, Mitchell Harble, Dave Dickson, and Charlie Fisher. Fisher, the master engine builder and former K-C champ, was making his first sprint start in several seasons.
Words couldn't describe the excitement Larry Bond and Roy Roush brought to the first eleven laps of the late model main. Bond led the first four laps in what appeared to be a near dead heat on the conclusion of each lap. Roush edged by on lap five to lead the next six circuits, yet the cars roared literally nose-to-nose. Occasionally, Steve Bigley worked into the frey early, but fell a couple sots back for a race-long battle for fourth. Going into one of the 12th circuit, Audie Swartz split the two competitors Bond and Roush and broke up the party.
Swartz edged Bond for second, then chased Roush for three more circuits before taking over for good to win by a healthy margin. The Cogan's Performance Engines Ford Fusion pulled into victory lane for the third straight week.
Back in the pack Chris Carpenter, Bigley, and Mike McDaniel fought ferociously for position. When the finish trickled out Bond brought home second behind the winning Swartz. Roush, Carpenter, Bigley, McDaniel, Ralph Withem, Tyler Carpenter, Freddie Carpenter, and Jeff Burdette rounded out the top ten. K.C. Burdette was the hard charger of the race, while Ralph Withem also had a great passing night.
Ryan Wilson was the marked man in the Pure Stock feature. With six wins this season Wilson had dominated. Despite his hard tries to unseat Jeremy Blake, Blake came home the winner for the second time of the night. The Wilson-Blake duel was exciting, and was a third more electric when Rick VanDyne anhored down second before tailing off into third.
Fourth through tenth were Tommy Murphy, Derrick Smith, Jeremy Misel, Jared Willis, George Klintworth, Joe Misel, Barry Brisker, and Darren Carpenter.
The start of the Four Cylinder main saw cousins Dennis and Grumpy Adkins duking it out for the lead. Third through nine heated up in side-by-side passing while Dennis Adkins pulled away. Behind Dennis Adkins were Grumpy Adkins, David Banks, Jeff Rankin, George Klintworth, Greg King, Josh Salyers, Ken Young, Keith Marlowe, and Steve Brown. Klintworth and Jeff Rankin shared hard-charger honors.
Top Point man Kyle Bond led flag-to-flag in the mini-wedges. Ron Pickens was second, Will Holland third, and Abby White, Mariah Miller, Samantha Roush, Cameron Roush, and Cole Mayle.

Swartz Swarms Bond Tribute Race
Johnson jolts AMRA Mods, Wilson Wallops Pure Stocks, King captures 1st Skyline main
Will Holland masters mini’s

Skyline Speedway Results  
By Scott Wolfe August 14, 2009
STEWART, OHIO- Saturday, August 14 was “The Tribute 35” for Ronnie and Sarah Bond, two local legends of the sport of racing, especially at Skyline Speedway. Claiming the title race was Minford, Ohio’s Audie Swartz, who claimed his second straight Skyline Late Model win to assert himself as the man to beat for the season point’s championship. Parkersburg’s Kenny Johnson claimed the Malta AMRA Modified main, Ryan Wilson claimed his sixth Pure Stock feature, Greg King captured the Four Cylinders, and Will Holland the mini-wedges.
In the late model A-main Jason Montgomery and Delmas Conley led the 18-car field to the line. Montgomery, the two-time K-C Champ, won the drag race out of turn two. Montgomery survived two early cautions, one for former Skyline Champ Mike McDaniel who was hit by another competitor on lap two and another for Zach Dohm who lost a wheel on lap six. On the restart Ronnie Mayle and Nick Corbitt looped it, before the racing once again went green.
Heading for the touchdown, Montgomery sprinted to the length of a football field ahead of runner up Swartz, but on lap twelve that turf was eclipsed when Freddie Carpenter's mount caught on fire on lap 12. After another caution, Audie Swartz was able to hang right with the hard boring Jacksonian.
A change of fate struck on lap 23 when Montgomery had to exit with mechanical woes. Said Swartz, "I know if you push Jason (Montgomery) he drives it just a little bit harder. I did that for a while and Jason was just flat-out good early in the race. I think I could have given him a run if he wouldn't have broke.”
Swartz inherited the lead, while at the same time young Nick Corbitt was breaking away from the second pack of cars to move into third behind Larry Bond. Bond drove like a demon and with the added incentive of his parents’ tribute night, he had the throttle of the Family Tradition #10 anchored to the floorboard. Corbitt and Bond had hard drives from 11th and 12th into the top five. At this point, Delmas Conley stood in fourth ahead of young lion Chris Carpenter, Rod Conley, Ralph Withem and Travis Brookover.
On lap 29, Jeff Wood who was running in the top five, broke an axle tube and took a grinding spin into the infield uke tires. Now Swartz’s Ford Fusion/Swartz Chassis led the field to the green, where he checked out on runner-up Larry Bond and veteran Delmas Conley.
"You're only as good as your car, and tonight we had a pretty good race car," said Audie Swartz. " Jason broke, but still this was a great win. It’s a neat deal to be able to win and pay tribute to the Bonds. Also, thanks to all those who help me , especially Dad (Charlie) "
Rounding out the top ten behind Swartz was Delmas Conley, Larry Bond, Nick Corbitt, Rod Conley, Ralph Withem, Ronnie Mayle, Chris Carpenter, Travis Brookover, and Dan Morrison. In a post race ceremony tribute was paid to Ronnie and Sarah Bond of Coolville, while also the top six drivers were presented trophies from Wetzel’s collectibles.
Next the Malta AMRA modifieds took to the track with Doug Henry, the first heat winner jumping into the early lead. Henry was super strong in the early going. The Beverly, Ohio driver and former AMRA National Champ survived several cautions, but J.P. Roberts and Kenny Johnson also flexed their muscle in a rough-house fight for second. Berwanger stood in wait in fourth ahead of Matt Holcomb and Ken Patrick. On a lap three restart Johnson buzz-sawed Roberts and nearly took Henry.
Two laps later Johnson bagged Henry, just before the yellow waved for a grinding Brandon Patton crash. J.P. Roberts looped it on the restart, pitting Berwanger on Henry's hind quarters for second. Dusty Boley put his brand new #75 on the high side picking off several cars in working toward a top five.
Late in the race Matt Holcomb and Mike McPherson went on a hunt, stampeding into the top five. Johnson continued to lead Berwanger, while Holcomb worked hard to pull off a top three in a fight with Henry. Roberts charged off the tail to seventh, while McPherson continued his rampage to a top five. Holcomb also anchored his position with a good run alongside Ken Patrick. Robin Ours , Roger Shadwick, and Dusty Boley had good top ten runs. Usually, the rim-rider Johnson found the bottom to his liking. Sometimes, never lifting Johnson’s Larry Shaw/Billy Lloyd engines #1 defied gravity as he strapped his mount to the inside rail and on to victory.
Hard charger of the race was the high-flying Mike McPherson. Behind the winning Johnson as Jeremy Berwanger, the AMRA National Points Leader; Doug Henry, Mike McPherson, Matt Holcomb, Ken Patrick, J.P. Roberts, Robin Ours, Roger Shadwick, and Dusty Boley.
"First, it feels good to get back to victory lane. I'd just like to say I love my Dad (former driver Gene Johnson) and I dedicate this win to (the late) Hilton Wolfe. This one's for him."
"As much as I hate to say it I wouldn't have won if I wouldn't have run the bottom. I like the high side, but tonight I hooked this Larry Shaw car up down low and that was the difference."
The Four Cylinder main was another wild one. Pomeroy's David Banks led the first go-round, then Shawn McClain was chased like a pack of wolves. McClain led the next several laps with Greg King, Chris Lauer, and Banks all in tow. Banks regained the lead, only to yield to Greg King after a Tony Plaugher flip.
Coming from a 10th place start, King was not only the winner but the hard charger of the race. King went on to the win ahead of Lauer, Banks, Jeff Rankin, Josh Salyers, Joe Adams, Grumpy Adkins, Steve Brown, Brandon Bowling, and Cody Heiss.
In the pure stocks, Shane Roush and Barry Brisker dueled side-by-side over the first lap, with five-time winner Ryan Wilson directly in tow. On a lap one restart Roush again led, but Brisker fell off the pace and Ryan Wilson inserted himself in the second slot. Seconds later, five-time winner Wilson again proved to be the class of the field and bolted away from the field.
Contenders Roush and Murphy took hard hits in a lap five caution, but were ok merely clearing the track for Wilson’s clear sailing. Early season favorites Jeremy Blake and Tommy Murphy battled wildly for second while Gary Gould, Derrick Smith, and Lance Wepple had good runs going. Behind Wilson at the finish was Blake, Murphy, Gould, Smith, Weppler, George Klintworth, Ben Ayres, Mark Henry, and Jeremy Misel. Derrick Smith was the hard charger in an 11th to fourth place run.
Bicycle winners were Brady Church and Makayla Smith, while Josh Crabtree won the Scooter. Sponsors for these prizes were C&S Racing Photo and Wetzel's Collectibles. Nearly 30 kids participated in the bicycle races and the first 100 kids in the gate received a gift and free ice cream compliments of Billy Jarrell, Wetzels, and C&S Racing Photos. Wetzels also presented Sarah and Ronnie Bond with a Tribute Plaque for their years of service to the racing community.
