Madera Speedway Partners With McCallister Precision Marketing



MADERA, CALIFORNIA (May 25, 2018) - McCallister Precision Marketing is proud to announce a multi-year agreement with California’s Madera Speedway.

The agreement makes McCallister Precision Marketing the Official Motorsports Marketing Company of Madera Speedway as well as a premier sponsor of the third-mile semi-banked asphalt oval located in Madera, California.

Owned by Tonya McCallister, McCallister Precision Marketing assists racing teams and drivers by providing them with quality customer service and marketing opportunities that will not only allow them to compete in the fast growing sport of racing, but to stay a lap ahead of the competition.

As part of the partnership one of the top-five drivers in points from Madera’s MAVTV-televised 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Model Series, which features racers between the ages of 10 to 16 racing full sized late models, 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.

Lee Faulk Racing and Development, started by veteran racer Lee Faulk, has fielded limited late models, late model stock cars and super late models for a vast array of drivers, Verizon IndyCar Series competitor Pietro Fittipaldi, current NHRA Pro Stock racer Tanner Gray and 2012 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year Stephen Leicht.

“Partnering with Madera is very exciting,” said McCallister. “They have done a phenomenal job of offering a platform for younger racers to be able to race in a competitive series, yet still be in a heavier type of car. The transition for these young drivers will be much less of a learning curve when they make the next step. We are proud to be the marketing company that can assist them with their transition to the East Coast.

“Kenny Shepherd at Madera Speedway has done a great job with the 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Model Series and they have a ton of talent racing in all of their series at Madera. We look forward to working with Kenny and everyone at Madera,” McCallister said.

Madera Speedway’s Kenny Shepherd said the partnership with McCallister Precision Marketing will benefit both the track and the competitors and he’s looking forward to the partnership.

"My goal has been to put the steps back on the ladder to the top of our sport and every move I've made has been to provide a platform where talent can shine beginning at the short tracks,” Shepherd said. “Connecting with McCallister Precision Marketing is the next step in providing the strongest foundation possible for rising talent racing in our program at Madera Speedway. One of our young drivers in the top five of the 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model Series will benefit greatly from our relationship with MPM. We are very excited we were able to make this happen for our drivers."

This weekend’s activities begin with an open practice on Friday night from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. On Saturday, pit gates open at 10:30 a.m. with practices beginning at 12:45 p.m. Qualifying follows at 2:45 p.m. with the first heat races and main events beginning at 4:15 p.m. Opening ceremonies are slated for 5:30 p.m. The special Military Tribute is a must-see and fans are encouraged to arrive early to pay their respects to our veterans and our fallen heroes.

Race three at Redwood Acres Raceway on the docket

The North State Modifieds will be making their first of three visits to Redwood Acres Raceway this Sunday

Eureka, CA (May 23, 2018) – After a two-week break, racing returns to Redwood Acres Raceway for a special Sunday afternoon Memorial Day weekend event. While the Super Six Late Model Challenge series cars are not part of this weekend’s O’Reilly Auto Parts Tribute to the Troops program, the ever-popular North State Modified Series will join the Acres’ regular divisions of roadrunners, Legends, Bandoleros, bombers and mini stocks.

Nick and Dylan Ford lead the current standings in the Compass Community Credit Union roadrunners. It will be interesting to see if both will be racing this weekend as the two severely damaged their cars in the second main event on May 12th. Lindsey Zito was the benefactor of that incident and claimed her first win. She sits third in the standings. Patrick Sproul and Amanda Lohr complete the top five.

The new Bandolero division has brought new excitement to the 3/8-mile paved oval. Lane Anderson has been a dominate force in the class as he has won all but one race thus far. He holds a 15-point lead over Aiden Kimberling. Kadence Mace is third followed by Maleesa Miles and Donnie Murrell.

Former Thunder Roadster racer, Chris Lawrence has made a smooth transition over to the NorthCoast Lighting and Electric Legends division. His lead over his step-son Tyler Peach is 12 points going into this weekend. Brent Mack is five points behind Peach in third with Tyler Krupa and Brad Curtice finish out the top five.

Nick Green is the point leader for the Fortuna Wheel & Brake bombers. His advantage in the championship battle is only three points. Ryan Walters holds down second while third place Jim Redd is one point behind Walters in third. Sam Brown sits in fourth with Kolby Jackson fifth.

The battle in the Humboldt Hydroponics mini stock class is also a tight one. Eugene Palmer leads Brian Murrell, Jr. by five markers. Both drivers had issues in the May 12th race which not only allowed third place Trevor Eacret to close in points but also obtain his first main event win. Veteran Gary Klientobe is a steady fourth in the standings with Jordan Paiment two points behind Kleintobe in fifth.

The weekend off for the Mid-City Motor World Super Six Late Model Challenge Series will be a good thing for several drivers. Mic Moulton has won both races in the. He has an 11-point advantage over Dane Nissen. David Henderson lies in third, 13 points in arrears to Moulton. Marty Walsh and Tim Crenshaw both have catching up to do as they are 21 and 31 points behind Moulton.

This Sunday will be the first of three times that the North State Modifieds will be racing at Redwood Acres Raceway. Throughout the 2018 season, the series will be featuring the “Driving Out Cancer Tour”, which is bringing awareness to cancer research. The tour was inspired by series’ competitor Rick Avila. The NSMS opened their season at Shasta Speedway on May 12th with Kris Price winning over Randy Houston, Cameron Austin, Jason Philpot and Dustin Derosier. Houston currently leads the series’ standings by one point over Price. The modifieds raced at Redwood Acres Raceway three times in 2017 with three different drivers taking main event wins; Darrin Sullivan, Randy Houston and Darrin Knight.

Humboldt Outlaw Karts return to Redwood Acres

500cc/Open kart race winner, Tony Miles

Eureka, CA (May 20, 2018) – After a month’s break, outlaw kart racing returned to the Redwood Acres fairgrounds for the second event of the season. John’s Used Cars and Wreckers sponsored the event which proved to be a brisk and windy day at the 1/10-mile dirt oval but that didn’t prevent the racing on the track to be exciting.

Corbin Green took the heat race victory for the Champagne Attorney Service beginner box stocks. Green shot out to the lead of the 20-lap main event. Jack Myer slipped into second past Danica Kinsey. Green pulled out to a several kart-length lead over Myer but as the race progressed, Myer began to slowly close in. Green spun handing the lead over to Myer and causing the race’s only caution flag. Myer led the restart but it didn’t take long for Green to move back to the lead as he moved under and past Myer for the lead in the closing stages. At the finish it was Green winning over Myer, Aaliyah Mitchell and Kinsey.

The Williamson Financial box stock heat race was claimed by Derrick Kessler, Jr. The 20-lap main event was brought to the green flag by Brady Osborn and Sonya Osborn. Brady shot out to the early lead but the race was filled with caution flags. The most notable came when Janice Walters lost power down the back stretch. Brady Osbourn tried to avoid Walters while second place Kessler tried to do the same. Both karts collided bringing out a caution but both were able to continue. Sonya Osborn inherited the lead briefly but Grant Williamson was able to quickly take over. Williamson led for a while but Kessler was able to work his way back to the lead in the closing stages. The finish saw Kessler take the victory followed by Sonya Osborn, Walters, Brady Osborn and Williamson.

In the Wes Green Landscaping 125/550cc heat race, Chelsea Champagne was the victor. The main event was dominated flag-to-flag by Landen Green. His closest competitor was Champagne who tried everything she could to apply pressure Green to make a mistake. Unfortunately for her, that mistake never came. Green was able to take the win over Champagne, Wyatt Burns, Malessa Miles and Mkinzy Uselton.

Michlette Family Racing stepped up to sponsor the pure stock division. Michael Lawrence was the winner of the heat race. The main event proved to be a playing ground for Jordan Michlette as he was able to take the lead after a caution slowed the field. A late caution bunched the field and allowed Lawrence to close in. However, Michlette was able to pull out to a sizable lead and the race win. Lawrence placed second while Curtis Lyon.

The NorCal Automotive 500cc/open karts were in action. It proved to be Tony Miles’ day as he was able to win the heat race and dominate the feature event. Dax Williamson placed second.

The next scheduled even for the Humboldt Outlaw Karts on Thursday June 21st. The event will be the biggest of the season for the karts with the race occurring on opening day of the Redwood Acres Fair. Automotive Workshop & Fabrication will be presenting the event.

Kleyn Looking to Back Up Victory at South Sound Speedway



Via NSLMS Media

Wenatchee, WA (May 21, 2018) When the Northwest Super Late Model Series Inc. (NWSLMS) makes its second official start at South Sound Speedway (SSS) on June 2nd, Mitch Kleyn (Quincy, WA) is hoping to be first to the checkered flag at the 3/8th mile oval for a repeat of last year’s victory. Kleyn and crew chief, Travis Sharpe put the Wild 1 Racing, Thaemert Farms, and 12 Hawks Chevrolet across the stripe in the lead to win his first Super Late Model event at the 2017 outing.

Kleyn, who is the only driver to have competed in every NWSLMS event, started racing in 1990 in the Street Stock division, and has raced in many classes over the last 20 years. Attending a Fall Classic many years back, Kleyn dreamed of someday owning a Super Late Model. Seven years ago, the right opportunity came along, and he made it happen. Finishing 2nd or 3rd in the championship point standings each year, Kleyn has been consistent in his bid to claim a championship. “In 2018, we are looking forward to winning as many races as we can,” noted Kleyn, “and if a championship or two happen that would be great!!!”

Coming from a racing family, Kleyn remembers his father taking his brothers and him to Ephrata Speedway in the 70’s and 80’s to the races. There he watched Christian Roeder race and win many times. Despite their father’s warning to never race, Mitch and both of his brothers have all been behind the wheel.

Kleyn’s son, Kasey, is already following in his father’s footsteps. Kasey wants to be a racer and has been running in the Bandolero division for the past few years. Later this summer, he will be testing a Junior Late Model and if all goes well, Kasey will be making his debut at Madera Speedway later this summer. “Someday, if he wants, Wild 1 Racing will be his,” said Kleyn. “I will only race a couple times and help him chase his dreams.”

When asked what he does when he’s not racing, Kleyn says he didn’t understand the question. He then laughed and noted that he’s always racing. A tight knit family, Kleyn is Kasey and daughter Brooke’s chauffeur during the week for school and afterschool sports. However, Rhonda Kleyn makes it all happen according to her husband, from keeping the troops fed and the cars vinyl looking pristine.

The racing action starts Saturday, June 2nd. For more information http://www.southsoundspeedway.com/

Military Tribute Night Brings Late Model Action Back To Madera

Austin Herzog (#11) leads the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model points

Via Madera Speedway Media

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (May 21, 2018) – The annual Memorial Day Weekend “Military Tribute Night” at Madera Speedway is this Saturday night, with the fourth rounds for the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model Series and 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Models on deck. The MAVTV-televised series continue their championship battles on the one-third mile oval with Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros, Modified Super Toyotas, and Toyota Sedans also in action.

A disastrous DNF in 20th position out of the 27 car field on April 28th knocked Matt Erickson out of the RPM Pro Late Model points lead. The winner of the first two races of the season now finds himself in an 11 point hole behind 15 year-old Austin Herzog. Herzog, the 2017 series Rookie of the Year and six-time Jr. Late Model feature winner, had his career best second place finish capitalizing on Erickson’s misfortunes.

Herzog and Erickson ran side-by-side for the lead of the April 8th round #2 and appear poised to continue that battle into round #4. Garland Tyler is third in the standings head of 2017 Pacific Challenge Series Rookie of the Year Jack Wood. Wood, age 17 from Loomis, CA, had his career best stock car finish when he finished third in the last event.

The race winner last month was Blaine Rocha in a strong performance. Former track champion Rick Thompson rounds out the top-five in the standings. 80 laps are scheduled with the traditional format of a 50 lap opening segment followed by on track adjustments and MAVTV interviews, then a 30 lap sprint to the finish.

2017 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model champion Jesse Love has taken points lead in the division despite a severe crash that prevented him from finishing round #3. Love, previous points leader Tanner Reif of Las Vegas, and Anthony Guaimano were all tangled in the melee coming out of the race’s halfway break. The championship has tightened considerably with Love leading Reif by eight points. Dylan Zampa’s two wins have propelled him to third in the points in a tie with Bakersfield’s Kabe McClenny. The top-four are separated by just 13 points while Watsonville’s Lilly Mead is in fifth but only 27 points out of first herself. The drivers ages 10-16 years old compete in 70 lap features with a 40 lap opening segment and a 30 lap conclusion.

The inaugural Mini Cup vs. Bandolero series has seen all six trophies won by Bakersfield drivers. Kale McClenny has scored all three Mini Cup wins. He topped Aaron Thomas for the Mini Cup victory in the combined race by just .005 seconds in the third race of the year. On the Bandolero side, female driver Kercie Jung won the first two races. Her absence in the third race opened the door for fellow Bakersfield female Riley Massey to motor on to victory. The largest combined field of the season is expected on Saturday as these young men and women battle for 20 laps with coverage on MAVTV.

Toyota Sedans and Modified Super Toyotas form the foundation of the Madera Speedway schedule and have had a busy start to 2018. 2016 Sedans champion Jillaun Holden has four wins and a second place finish to lead rookie Greg Tyler by 44 points with Thomas Magray in third. On the Modified Toyota side of things, Patrick Geiger enjoys a four point advantage over “Dirt” Bert Stephens with May 12th winner Ryan Reynolds quickly closing in from third in the points.

This weekend’s activities begin with an open practice on Friday night from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. On Saturday, pit gates open at 10:30 a.m. with practices beginning at 12:45 p.m. Qualifying follows at 2:45 p.m. with the first heat races and main events beginning at 4:15 p.m. Opening ceremonies are slated for 5:30 p.m. The special Military Tribute is a must-see and fans are encouraged to arrive early to pay their respects to our veterans and our fallen heroes.

Ryan Partridge Dominates for Orange Show Victory

Via NASCAR Media

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — He came, he saw, he conquered, he avenged.

Ryan Partridge, flexed his muscle, figuratively and literally, and dominated en route to the Sunrise Ford 150 victory on Saturday evening at Orange Show Speedway, his fifth NASCAR K&N Pro Series West victory of his career and first this season.

He also avenged his frustrating 2016 loss at this track, where he led 137 laps from the pole to see a sure win fall out of his hands due to a mishap with a lapped car down the stretch.

This time, he made sure he’d claim his checkered flag. Starting from the pole, the Rancho Cucamonga, California, native led the first 37 circuits before Derek Kraus was able to take the top spot away as the caution flag flew. Shortly thereafter, Partridge re-took the lead and never looked back, leading all the way to the finish.

“We let him lead for a couple laps,” Partridge said of his battle with Kraus. “(Then my) spotter came over the radio and said ‘I think it’s time to go,’ so we were able to wedge right by him and take the lead again. Probably the most nerve-racking moment of the race was when the No. 6 (Derek Thorn) got into the second position. He’s a veteran driver, he knows what he’s doing, and when he got up into the second position I knew it was time to go. Pedal down.”

“Thank god we didn’t have a restart after that when we really would’ve had to duke it out and take our gloves off. But man our Sunrise Ford Fusion was hooked up.”

Having finishes of fifth (Kern County), third (Tucson) and second (Tucson), it was only a matter of time before the 2016 series runners-up would find Victory Lane.

His Sunrise Ford teammate and championship points leader entering Orange Show, Thorn, was able to get by Kraus with 24 laps to go. The Lakeport, California native and 2013 series champion tried to put the pressure on Partridge, but couldn’t seal the deal.

“I was kind of writing ourselves off mid portion (of the race),” Thorn said following his runner-up result. “Car got really, really tight on the long run. I was behind the No. 16 (Kraus) and the No. 99 (Rouse), and hats off to them for racing me clean. I raced them a little rougher than I probably should’ve there trying to get up through the field.”

Orange Show marks Thorn’s third second-place result this season (Kern County and Tucson race No. 2). But despite the solid runs, he’s getting a bit impatient and frustrated with not breaking through.

“I’m not a big fan of being a bridesmaid this many times this year,” Thorn said. “Hopefully with this consistency comes some results, some wins. But from a team aspect, couldn’t ask for a better night.”

Cole Rouse tied his season-best finish of third when the checkered flag flew, but admitted he wanted more.

“I’m not mad about it, I’m not happy about it, I’m just kind of in between,” Rouse said. “I’m tired of third- and second-place finishes. I’m ready to get a win. I think we’ll have some shots later in this year, we just gotta get these cars turning a little better on these short tracks.”

Rouse’s Bill McAnally Racing teammates and newly minted NASCAR Next drivers Hailie Deegan (career-best finish) and Derek Kraus rounded out the top five.

Trevor Huddleston, Kody Vanderwal, Todd Souza, Nick Joanides and Matt Levin completed the top 10.

Partridge now leads Thorn by three points and Kraus by 10, while Rouse (-12) and Vanderwal (-17) round out the top five.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will take one week off before heading to Colorado National Speedway in Dacono, Colorado, for the NAPA/Toyota 150 on Saturday, June 9.

The Sunrise Ford 150 will air on NBCSN on Thursday, May 24 at 6 p.m. ET.

Cole Moore Returns To Victory Lane With Ukiah PCS Win



Via PCS Media

UKIAH, CALIFORNIA (May 20, 2018) – Cole Moore led 72 laps and put together a masterful set of final restarts to prevail at Ukiah Speedway on Saturday night, charging to his second career Pacific Challenge Series presented by PenneyLawyers.com victory. Moore conquered the challenging quarter-mile bullring in a race that was a tale of two acts.

Shasta Raceway Park winner Jason Romero won the Sunoco Fuels Fast Time Award for the second consecutive race, but had work to do when the field was fully inverted for the American Racer Tire Dash. Romero finished seventh to start seventh in the feature while Coquille, OR’s David Miller won the Dash for a set of tires and the pole position of the feature with Moore finishing second for the outside front row.

Moore used his outside starting position to challenge Miller from the outside from the drop of the green flag, taking the lead on lap three. Defending series champion Mike Beeler used the outside line to move forward and brought Romero with him, with the duo advancing to second and third respectively by lap 11.

Ukiah’s John Dalerio started tenth and immediately moved to the front, passing a quickly faltering Miller for fifth on lap 16. Romero aimed high and low on Beeler in an entertaining race for second place while Miller anchored a four car line of cars from sixth through ninth positions.

Romero took over second on lap 29 but had a half-lap deficit to make up on Cole Moore by that point. Moore started lapping cars, lapping fellow front row starter Miller on lap 35. Redwood Valley’s Kolby Berry used the leader as a pick to advance up into sixth position but was also put down a lap a few laps later.

Matt Wendt struggled with rear end issues and was tagged by race leader Cole Moore on lap 59, with Wendt limping to a stop in the infield for the first caution of the race. Wendt surrendered to the pits as had Miller by that point. Both did not return.

Romero seized the chance to challenge Moore for the lead after a 59 lap green flag run. After pacing behind Moore for several laps after the restart, Romero gave him a pair of taps into turn three to grab the lead at lap 66. Romero missed his marks into turn one, sailing up the hill and off the edge of the track in turn two. He slid into the dirt to surrender the lead and force a caution flag.

Moore reassumed the lead while Romero tried to mount a comeback from the rear of the pack with just nine laps remaining. John Moore tangled with John Dalerio twice, first on lap 70 and again on lap 73. Both restarts saw Cole Moore pick the inside line against Mike Beeler and both attempts saw Moore drive away in convincing fashion.

The final two lap shootout was a mad scramble, with Berry diving inside the pack down the backstretch to nearly show his nose to race leader Cole Moore. He ended up sliding in front of Beeler for second with one to go. Cole Moore took a five car length victory while Romero crossed over Berry at the line to take a narrow second place finish. Beeler ended up relegated to fourth with John Moore just a few feet behind in fifth as well.

Berry’s drive from ninth to third earned him the Penney Racing Supply Hard Charger Award. The evening began with a tribute to Martin Disomma, the father of PCS official Blake Disomma. $100 was added to the winner’s purse for each division racing at Ukiah on Saturday, making Cole Moore’s win a $1600 victory.
