Tyler Herzog Scores First Career Late Model Win



MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 16, 2019) – Tyler Herzog put together the best 40 laps of his young career, topping a strong field of drivers for his first career Madera Late Model victory on Saturday night. The opener for the non-televised portion of stock car action at Madera Speedway was part of a busy night, with six different main events.

Herzog set fast-time in time trials and started on the pole over the 12 car field. Hailey Liles started shotgun on the field in an exhibition of her Jr. Late Model as well.

Herzog jumped ahead of 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model regular Joey Iest, who was making his Open Late Model debut. Two-time 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model champion Jesse Love filed into third ahead of a great duel between another Jr. Late Model standout Jay Juleson along with his teammate Matt Erickson. Erickson, the winningest Late Model driver in Madera history, tried his best to get around Juleson while Iest kept the pressure up on Herzog.

The battle for the lead tightened up on lap 12 before they separated. Things really intensified on lap 31 with Iest looking inside but getting sideways exiting turn four. Herzog managed to drive away.

Herzog’s lead grew to several car lengths while Iest fell into a battle with Love for second. Liles stalled on the track in turn four on lap 36 for the only caution of the race. The caution set up a four lap sprint to the finish. Love narrowly nipped Iest at the stripe coming to the caution and lined up alongside Tyler Herzog. Herzog picked the outside line, Love was slow to get away, and that was all she wrote. Herzog went on for a .300 victory ahead of Love and Iest. Erickson cleared Juleson for fourth at the finish as well.

Iest’s night wasn’t limited to just his success in the Madera Late Models. The 16 year-old also won his first career USAC Western US Midget feature. Iest led all 30 laps in the non-stop feature. Colorado’s 11 year-old sensation Elvis Rankin briefly challenged Iest but eventually drifted seven seconds behind. The best battle throughout the feature was between debutant Derek Loweree and Johnny Nichols for third. Loweree won the battle when Nichols slowed with mechanical issues.

The POWRi BCRA Midgets opened their campaign in a fast-paced 40 lap feature as well. Jesse Love nipped Jerome Rodela by .019 seconds in time trials and the two Toyota powered mounts occupied the front row with the Chevrolet powered machines from Western Speed Racing taking up row two.

Rodela was relentless in his pursuit for victory, winning by nine seconds while Dylan Nobile and Cody Gerhardt battled for third. Nobile pulled away in the late stages while Gerhardt’s car started to tighten late in the run to finish fourth.

2017 Modified Super Toyota champion Bert Stephens won an exciting 30 lap main event that saw the top-four run under a blanket for the duration of the race. Each driver in the pack made attempts to overhaul Stephens but were unable to do so. Stephens paced Shaun Reynolds, 2018 champion Ryan Reynolds, and Patrick Geiger across the stripe after the action-packed race. Kyle Labrie’s debut in the division netted a fifth-place effort.

Jason Lawton returned to victory lane in the Toyota Sedan division with a comfortable win. Lawton had a sizeable advantage nullified by a spin in turn four by JJ Brandsen. Lawton was not deterred and built up another strong lead to the finish while Andrew Davison came home second. Brandsen worked his way through the pack to take third ahead of Thomas Magray and Andrew Parr.

2018 Hobby Stock champion Steve Schermerhorn continued his winning ways by claiming their season opening feature win as well.

Madera Speedway continues next Saturday with the Smokey Hanoian Classic with Madera Late Models, Madera Hobby Stocks, MST, Toyota Sedans, Legends of the Pacific, Jr Late Model Exhibition race and Legends of Kearney Bowl.

MAVTV Madera POWRi BCRA Midgets Take Center Stage Saturday Night

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 11, 2019) – The fifth year of MAVTV coverage of the Madera Speedway has seen an expansion to 24 episodes, with the new Madera POWRi BCRA Midgets taking center stage for this Saturday’s TV slate. The newly formed series is a combined effort between the nation’s fastest growing short track, the nation’s fastest growing open wheel sanctioning body, and the oldest sanctioning body in Midget racing history. They will combine for five races beginning with Saturday’s jaunt, all televised.

Their co-headliner this Saturday was slated to be the new California Challenge Cup for steel bodied cars from Grand National-style racing. A wet winter and the development of new teams has put this series on hold until May 4th, when they will come out in force for a six race schedule. Many young drivers from Madera’s Jr. and Pro Late Model Series are combining forces with existing teams and equipment, for a lower-cost approach to gaining heavy car experience.

Midgets have been a mainstay at the Madera Speedway one-third mile asphalt oval. For many years, the track was known nationally as an open wheel playground. Midget racing is poised for a serious pavement comeback and putting the POWRi BCRA Midgets front and center on Saturday will start the effort.

“We are very eager to start this new partnership with our Midgets and get them onto MAVTV,” promoter Kenny Shepherd said. “Race fans across the country have been looking for more pavement open wheels and I think this series is a great way to provide it.”

Madera’s brightest star is Jesse Love, 14 of Menlo Park. The two-time Jr. Late Model champion also won the BCRA championship last year to be the sanctioning body’s youngest ever title holder. Love has a full slate of national POWRi races with Keith Kunz this year, but will return to Madera on Saturday night to race in the new pavement TV Midget series. He will be joined by a host of veterans from central California along with local favorites such as third-generation racer Cody Gerhardt and Los Banos High School graduate Cody Jessop. Chad Nichols of San Carlos won the pavement championship for BCRA last season and is always a contender at Madera.

Joining the Midgets on Saturday’s busy card will be the season openers for the Madera local Late Model championship, Madera Hobby Stocks, Modified Super Toyotas, Toyota Sedans, and a Jr. Late Model exhibition race. The USAC Western US Midgets for Ford Focus-powered cars are also scheduled to compete.

The Madera Late Model division serves as the non-televised feeder series for the Pro Late Model division and routinely attracts car counts in the upper teens. Their 2018 champion is Jason Aguirre while the Hobby Stock defending champion is Steve Schermerhorn.

Action gets started on Friday evening with practice from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Saturday’s program begins with pit gates opening at noon. Practices run from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. with qualifying and heat races to follow. Opening Ceremonies will be at 6 p.m. with main events to follow.

Tickets for this great night of racing are just $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, $7 for youth ages 6-12, and kids five and under are free!

Madera Winner Dylan Zampa Grabs Attention Of Racing Industry

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 11, 2019) – With the MAVTV cameras rolling, Dylan Zampa put the West Coast stock car racing world on notice by winning his debut in the Nut Up Pro Late Model Series on Saturday night. The 15 year-old has attracted national attention, outdueling his older brother Logan for the $5,000 win.

The Napa High School freshman won a marketing partnership with McAllister Precision Marketing as part of a contingency program from his 2018 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model campaign. Zampa finished runner-up in that championship before advancing into the Madera Pro Late Models this season, one of the largest and most competitive Pro Late Model divisions in the country.

This morning he appeared on the Speed51.com Morning Bullring live to talk about the win and his racing career.

“It was life changing to win at Madera,” Zampa told Bob Dillner of Speed51.com “Kenny Shepherd has put so much work into getting the (Nut Up) series out there. On the final restart, (Logan) picked the outside of me and we raced side-by-side for 10, 15 laps. He made a mistake going into turn three and coming out of turn four he drove really high.”

“I’ve been racing for nine or ten years and I’m super devoted. It’s the only thing I want to do. I work on the race car almost every day of the week. It’s very special. I was super excited and ready to take on the challenge with the big guys. It was very emotional for me and my dad. We were both speechless.”

Zampa joins the growing list of drivers who have shown next level talent during the first four years of the Jr. Late Model program. The series for drivers ages 10-16 years old debuted in 2016.

“We’re so proud of the success from our Jr. drivers. This is what we envisioned with this training program,” Madera promoter Kenny Shepherd said. “Dylan looks like the fourth in line already from this program that has what it takes to compete on a national level.”

Among those who have competed in the Jr. Late Model program is Hailie Deegan, the only female winner in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West. Jesse Love, winner of both the 2017 and 2018 Jr. Late Model championship, will compete in a variety of series in 2019 including the POWRI Midgets for Keith Kunz Motorsports. He will also be racing in the SRL Southwest Tour, Winged Sprint Cars, and the MAVTV-televised Madera BCRA Midgets on pavement. 2018 Nut Up Pro Late Model Rooke of the Year Adam Lemke competes for JR Motorsports in the CARS Tour this year as well.

Zampa’s 2019 Nut Up Pro Late Model efforts continue with eight more races. The series competes again on April 6th with an 80 lap feature. Zampa will also test for Lee Faulk Racing in April. Pro Late Model competition continues into October with the $10,000 to win Short Track Shootout on October 5th.

Dylan Zampa Strikes Speed Fest Gold With $5,000 Pro Late Model Win At Madera



Via Madera Speedway Media

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 9, 2019) – 14 year-old Dylan Zampa of Napa, CA made his Nut Up Pro Late Model debut on Saturday night and promptly scored the biggest win of his career, topping his 18 year-old brother for the $5,000 Speed Fest at Madera Speedway. The pair went side-by-side over a dramatic final ten laps for MAVTV cameras before wet weather ended the event prematurely. Tanner Reif scored a shortened opener for the 51FIFTY Jr. Late Models that attracted 20 drivers ages 10-16 years old as well. Both the Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros and Modified Super Toyotas were unable to run their features.

A grinding crash for the lead between Carlos Vieira and Blaine Rocha on lap 39 opened the door wide-open for the Zampa battle. Fast-time qualifier Vieira and Rocha slid off of turn four with Rocha spinning across the track into the inside wall with significant damage. Vieira drove away from the crash but with portions of Rocha’s nose piece lodged into his car. He was relegated to the rear for having it removed by officials.

Rocha had led all the way after starting outside Orange Show champion Parker Malone on the front row of the 26 car feature. More than 30 cars attempted to qualify, with the field narrowed by a b-main earlier in the afternoon.

Dylan Zampa, the runner-up in the 2018 51FIFTY Jr. Late Models, slowly negotiated his way to second after starting sixth. The first caution flew on lap 18 for a spin. The caution flew again on lap 21 for Ryan Hart spinning and dropping fluid in turn one. Rocha picked the inside line against Zampa, pinning him into the dry sweep at the top of the first corner.

Through a series of mid-race cautions, Rocha continually maintained the lead over the rookie. A significant crash slowed the festivities when 2007 Altamont champion Ryan Philpott hit the turn one gate head on. He was uninjured and racing resumed after a brief red flag for clean up.

Zampa spun his tires on a lap 36 restart, which allowed the tenth starting Vieira to shoot the gap up into second. Vieira immediately clamped down on Rocha. Two laps later they slid through turn four before Rocha was hooked and hit the inside wall backwards.

The incident thrust Dylan Zampa into the lead, picking the inside against Logan Zampa. They staged a side-by-side battle over the next 10 laps with multiple lead changes. Logan led lap 39, before Dylan led lap 40. Logan edged forward for lap 41 but Dylan managed to lead until lap 45. Logan swung wide in turn four and Dylan danced to a one car length advantage up to lap 49.

Dylan’s advantage was nullified by a caution for Malone spinning out of turn four. The race never restarted as a heavy sprinkle saw officials count caution laps to carry the race to lap 56 just past halfway. The halfway break began before the sprinkle turned into persistent rain showers to end the evening. Dylan Zampa hauled in his $5,000 Speed Fest victory with 2018 Short Track Shootout $10,000 winner Logan Zampa in second.

2018 Madera Late Model champion Jason Aguirre was third over two-time champion Buddy Shepherd and 13th starting Ross Strmiska. Vieira ranked 14th in the rundown in a slight hit to his 2019 championship hopes.

13 year-old Tanner Reif of Las Vegas won his second career 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Model Series race with a late race maneuver to take the shortened victory. 20 drivers ages 10-16 years old took the green flag for MAVTV-televised action.

12 year-old Cody Kiemele from Riverside swept around Jay Juleson to lead lap one. The caution flew immediately for a brief spin in turn three. Juleson looked pinned to the outside on the restart with a line of strong cars attempting to overhaul him including Bakersfield’s Seth Wise. A caution on lap six for a stalled car gave Juelson a break from the battling.

Madera’s Joey Iest rocketed from fourth to second on the restart when Juleson was slow to get away. Iest tucked under Kiemele before Kiemele spun to surrender the lead and bring out the caution.

Iest took over the point with Tyler Reif advancing to second after starting sixth. Iest and Reif built up a five car length lead over the pack but then Reif suffered a solo spin in turn three. The pack of mostly rookie drivers all managed to avoid Reif’s stalled car.

Tanner Reif used these restarts to charge past both Wise and Juleson to get up into second. His brother spun again on lap 25 which allowed Tanner an opening to challenge Iest. Iest held off this attempt that included Reif sliding sideways off of turn four and nearly going around. He saved it and then was saved by a caution period. This next restart was Iest’s undoing with Reif taking the lead on lap 30.

A caution on lap 32 for Tyler Reif having another unfortunate spin set up the final restart of the event. Tanner Reif motored away from Joey Iest for a .187 second advantage with Wise, Kabe McClenny, and Kayla Eshleman the top-five. The lap 41 checkered flag was intended to be the halfway break, but the race never restarted due to weather.

The MAVTV-televised Nut Up Pro Late Models and 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Models return on April 6th. Next up for Madera Speedway is Saturday night’s debut of the MAVTV-televised California Challenge Cup for steel bodied stock cars along with the new Madera Midget Series.

2019 Madera Speedway Season Begins Saturday With Large Field Of MAVTV Late Models

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 5, 2019) – Madera Speedway’s fifth season of MAVTV-televised Late Model action begins Saturday night, as drivers get ready to lay the wood for nine race championship campaigns in the Nut Up Pro Late Model Series and 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model Series. Saturday’s Madera Speed Fest includes the Pro Late Models battling for 100 laps and $5,000 to win, while the Jr. Late Models will race for 70 laps. Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros and Modified Super Toyotas round out the card on the one-third mile asphalt oval.

A very healthy field of competitors are expected to try to challenge Matt Erickson in the Pro Late Models in 2019. Erickson opened his 2018 championship campaign by winning the $5,000 season opener and followed it with three more victories to add to his extensive Madera resume.

Six-time Jr. Late Model winner Austin Herzog of Clovis scored three fast-times and a pair of runner-up finishes to finish second in the championship. Garland Tyler and Ryan Hart were third and fourth in the standings. Rounding out the top-five of 2018 was Racin Vernon of Bakersfield who won twice and added two fast-times as well. Vernon is one of many drivers utilizing a new car with an Outlaw-style body this season.

2018 Jr. Late Model runner-up Dylan Zampa, 14, will advance to the Pro Late Model series to compete alongside his older brother Logan Zampa, winner of the $10,000 Short Track Shootout last season. Both drivers are utilizing new Outlaw Late Model style bodies on their machines.

USAC’s all-time winningest female Toni Briedinger will begin a full-time Pro Late Model campaign hailing out of Hillsborough, CA for Naake-Klauer Motorsports as well.

A bevy of drivers will be part of the substantial field on Saturday night, with two-time series champion Buddy Shepherd, three-time PCS winner Carlos Vieira, Madera race winners Rick Thompson and Blaine Rocha, Madera Late Model champion Jason Aguirre, Altamont champion Ryan Philpott, Nut Up Industries teammates Ross Strmiska and Christian Roche, and many others expected to compete.

Visiting drivers set to appear include 2009 Roseville and 2018 PCS champion Jason Romero and nearly half a dozen Orange Show Speedway regulars including champions Linny White, Parker Malone, and Barry Karr.

With two-time 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model champion Jesse Love graduating into touring Late Models, Sprint Cars, and Midgets in 2019, the championship battle is wide-open this season. Several drivers appear poised to fill the gap with Las Vegas brothers Tyler and Tanner Reif among the returning crop. The older Tanner Reif narrowly missed out on the championship on the strength of a victory in August. Tyler finished fourth in the standings with a photo-finish win in July over his older brother. The victory made him the youngest winner in series history.

The rookie crop of Jr. Late Model drivers will include Portland, OR’s Jadan Walbridge from Outlaw Kart racing, Bandolero and Legends standouts Kercie Jung and Seth Wise from Bakersfield, Yakima, WA’s Patrick Mullins, and off-road champion Jake Bollman. Bollman will take over the #38 season vacated by Love.

Returning drivers to the division include fifth in 2018 points Kabe McClenny, inaugural season winner Austin Edwards, Madera’s Joey Iest, San Jose’s Jay Juleson, Lilly Mead, and Olivia Manke.

The Mini Cup vs. Bandolero drivers will face off with a new crop of drivers from a variety of backgrounds looking to knock Bakersfield’s Riley Massey off her championship pedestal. Several Mini Cup teams have moved into the more powerful Bandolero cars, adding to the intrigue. The youngest drivers at Madera Speedway compete in a 20 lap feature on Saturday.

Modified Super Toyotas continue to be anchored by the twin bothers of Shaun and Ryan Reynolds. They look to continue that momentum in Saturday’s opener with 30 laps on tap for the main event.

Action gets started on Friday evening with practice from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. Saturday’s program begins with pit gates opening at 11:00 a.m. Practices run from 1:00 – 2:45 p.m. with qualifying and heat races to follow. The first set of main events starts at 5:15 p.m. including the Mini Cup feature and the Late Model B Main. Opening ceremonies are at 6:00 p.m.

Tickets for this great night of racing are just $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, $7 for youth ages 6-12, and kids five and under are free!

Strong Contingency Program Offered For MAVTV Late Model Program At Madera



Via Madera Speedway Media

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (March 5, 2019) – Competitors in Madera Speedway’s MAVTV-televised Late Model Series will be offered a package of exciting contingencies in 2019, starting with Saturday’s Madera Speed Fest season opener. Teams from across the western United States will be racing for lucrative awards all season long with Saturday’s Nut Up Pro Late Model Series 100 lap feature paying $5,000 to the winner. The 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model season will begin as well, with drivers from five different states expected to compete in the 70 lap event.

Five Star Bodies previously announced a partnership for both divisions for their nine race series. The top-three in each feature will receive a certificate for body parts. First will receive $300, second $200, and third $100. A complete body package of the new 2019 “Gen-6” style body will be given away at the banquet as well.

Madera Speedway’s Late Model rules have just 13 total rules, allowing for many different body types and engine types controlled by a grooved 8” tire and weight penalties. Arguably the most successful package is the low-cost GM 602 sealed crate engine. Maita Motorsports, a division of Maita Chevrolet and approved dealer for GM Performance Parts, is offering contingency certificates towards a new 602 engine. It can also be applied to a CT525 engine as well.

For both Late Model divisions, first will receive a $100 certificate, second $75, and third $50. The program will extend to the non-televised Late Model division at Madera as well.

McAllister Precision Marketing returns to offer their incredible contingency program for the Jr. Late Model Series. As part of the partnership one of the top-five drivers in points will be randomly selected to receive a Premier Marketing Package from McCallister Precision Marketing.

The Premier Marketing Package will include consulting, promotion, 10 free press releases and a free test session with McCallister Precision Marketing client Lee Faulk Racing and Development on the East Coast. Logan Zampa, 14 of Napa, CA, won the prize in 2018 after finishing second in the points.

StopTech Brakes has stepped up their involvement with Madera Speedway in 2019 as well. Previously a large force in the sports car world, StopTech has found recent success in circle track racing at Madera. Both 2018 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model champion Jesse Love and 2018 Nut Up Pro Late Model champion Matt Erickson used StopTech brakes on their cars. StopTech will provide certificate prizes of $200, $150, and $100 for the top-three finishers of each Pro and Jr. event.

The 2019 season opens on Saturday night with the $5,000 to win Nut Up Pro Late Model feature during the Madera Speed Fest. Jr. Late Models, Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros, and Modified Super Toyotas round out the exciting card.

Action gets started on Friday evening with practice from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Saturday’s program begins with pit gates opening at 11:00 a.m. Practices run from 1:00 – 2:45 p.m. with qualifying and heat races to follow. The first set of main events starts at 5:15 p.m. including the Mini Cup feature and the Late Model B Main. Opening ceremonies are at 6:00 p.m.
