Roseburg, OR…… The North State Modified Series (NSMS), presented by Protect the Harvest, will be venturing out-of-state for the first time in its six-year history to be a part of the annual West Coast Modified Shootout at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon on August 24.

North State Modified Series Gears Up For 2019 Season

Cameron Austin of Santa Rosa (#7c) won the last NSMS race at Madera Speedway in June 2018. The series will compete here three times in 2019 which includes the season opener on April 13.

Via NSMS Media

The North State Modified Series (NSMS), presented by Protect the Harvest, will once again bring top-notch modified action to five different race tracks for 11 events throughout Northern California and Central California. Plus for the first time the series will venture into Southern Oregon to race at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon, adding a 12th outing to its exciting schedule.

Mid California's Madera Speedway will host three NSMS races in 2019 including the season opener on April 13, a mid race event on June 15, and a late summer race on August 3. Promoter Kenny Shepherd will be donating $1,000 to the purse to make it $2,000 to win at each of the Madera shows.

“I’m putting the money on from my personal account to help make these events as big as possible,” Shepherd said. “I intend to film all three for a livestream and if we can get the car count strong enough and have a good race we might even be able to air one of the races on our Madera Racing on MAVTV show.”

Back in the line-up for two events this year is the Stockton 99 Speedway. They will host the second race in the series on April 27, and follow that up with a June 1 event. The Stockton facility is a favorite among many of the central and upper state competitors. Promoter Tony Noceti is looking forward to the return of the North State Modifieds.

Redwood Acres Raceway in Eureka always gives the racers a break from the heat with the first race, the “O'Reilly Auto Parts 60”, on May 11. The next visit to Eureka will be on July 20 for the “McMurray & Sons Roofing 60.” The final Event at “The Acres” will be during their “Fall Spectacular” on September 21.

The first of two shows at Shasta Speedway will be during the Shasta County Fair on June 22 in Anderson, CA. Competitors are encouraged to bring their families and have fun at the fair before the races begin.

The weekend following the 4th of July holiday will find the series at the All American Speedway in Roseville. This will be the 3rd annual Gene Welch Classic, sponsored by Jimmy Strauss Jeeps in Diamond Springs. This prestigious event honors Gene Welch, a many-time champion at All American Speedway who passed away in December of 2015.

August 24th is the date for the Roseburg, Oregon show. This event will be a part of the long-running “West Coast Modified Shootout” that will be offering an increased driver's purse. Several of the North State Modified drivers have attended, and won, this race in the past, but this is the first time it will be sanctioned and officiated by NSMS.

The season concludes at Shasta Speedway on October 5 for the Lloyd Burton “Against the Wind” Modified Challenge, sponsored by Mort Houston and the Burton Family.

Protect the Harvest will be the title sponsor of NSMS. Lucas Oil will fund a tow-money program for the drivers whereby the top 10 points leaders will each receive $200 upon arriving at the race track, and 11th through 15th in points will get $100. This program was designed to help with the high cost of travel.

Other sponsors of the series are Hoosier Tire West, Sunoco Race Fuels, Naake Suspension, Five Star Bodies, Racer Bling, Keyser Racing Products, Scribner Plastics, Gone Racin' Marine, Buckhorn Bar & Grill, and Franks Radios.

NSMS modified rules, procedures, schedule, entry forms and other information are available on the web site www.northstatemodifieds.com.

NASCAR K&N Pro Series West 2019 Schedule Announced



Via NASCAR Media

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The 2019 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West schedule will kick off on the dirt of Las Vegas and culminate on the big stage in Phoenix, with a challenging mix of tracks in between that will test the top drivers and teams throughout the west.

The 14-race schedule will visit 13 different tracks in nine states from February to November. It will include two combination races with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and three companion races with the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

“This is one of the most dynamic and diverse schedules we’ve had, and it’s going to be a lot of fun for fans of the series to watch their favorite drivers compete at a variety of venues,” said Brandon Thompson, NASCAR managing director for regional racing. “You have a tremendous mix of a dirt track, road course, historic bullrings and speedways that is sure to produce an exciting season.”

The 66th season of the series, which traces its roots back to the Pacific Coast Late Model Series, will kickoff with a distinct old school feel: racing stock cars on dirt. The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host the Star Nursery 100 on Thursday, Feb. 28, as part of the track’s Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube NASCAR race weekend.

The inaugural Star Nursery 100 was won by eventual ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards champion Sheldon Creed and was the first NASCAR K&N Pro Series race on a dirt track since 1979.

The 2019 titlist will be crowned in a much-anticipated return to ISM Raceway as part of the track’s NASCAR Playoff weekend in November. The 1-mile track recently completed a $178 million renovation project and hosts the penultimate round of the NASCAR national series playoffs.

The K&N Pro Series West last ran in Phoenix in 2015, when Todd Gilliland scored his first career NASCAR win as a prelude to back-to-back West title campaigns. The track was also the site of 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Joey Logano’s first NASCAR win in 2007 as well as Ryan Blaney’s first NASCAR win in 2011.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will also return to another popular stop: Irwindale Speedway, on Saturday, March 30. The graduated banking on the half-mile speedway outside of Los Angeles has produced thrilling racing since it first opened in 1999; it has hosted 26 events between 1999-2011, and from 2014-17.

Other schedule highlights include:

Tucson Speedway in Arizona will again host twin 100-lap features, on Saturday, May 11. Kody Vanderwal scored the underdog sweep in the inaugural 2018 event.
The series will race on the road course at Sonoma Raceway on Saturday, June 22, as part of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series weekend. Will Rodgers scored the win over a trio of Cup drivers in 2018.

Twice the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will go head-to-head with its East counterparts. The first is the annual stop at Iowa Speedway, on Friday, July 26, and the second as part of a doubleheader with the INDYCAR Series on Saturday, Aug. 24, at Gateway Motorsports Park, just outside of St. Louis.

The series will make its traditional summer visits to Colorado National Speedway (Saturday, June 8), Washington's Evergreen Speedway (Saturday, Aug. 17) and Oregon's Douglas County Speedway. Colorado has hosted the West series each of the last 12 seasons. Evergreen has held 56 races since 1965, including the last eight seasons. Douglas has held 16 West races, bringing the series to the fairgrounds each of the last three years.

Idaho's Meridian Speedway will bring the series back for the fifth consecutive year on Sept. 28, a run that included Hailie Deegan's historic first NASCAR win in 2018. It's followed by back-to-back California dates - first at the tight quarter-mile of All American Speedway in Roseville on Saturday, Oct. 12, and then the high-speed half-mile of Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield on Saturday, Oct. 26. All American has been part of the West series every season since 2008, while Kern will be hosting its 10th race since it opened in 2013.

Gilliland Edges Eggleston For Roseburg Win



Via NASCAR PR

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Whatever he lacks in experience, Todd Gilliland makes up for in moxie.

The 17-year-old from Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, won a fiercely contested Clint Newell Toyota 150 presented by NAPA Auto Parts Saturday night at Douglas County Speedway.

Gilliland fought off runner-up Chris Eggleston in a side-by-side battle for the lead, in which sparks literally flew off the fenders and bumpers of both cars as they nipped each other’s heels on the .375-mile semi-banked oval. It was the NASCAR Next driver's sixth NASCAR K&N Pro Series West victory of the season, with a final margin of victory of .155 seconds.

In just his 26th K&N Pro Series West career race, Gilliland picked up his 13th victory.

His Bill McAnally Racing teammate, 28-year-old Chris Eggleston from Erie, Colorado, won the Coors Light Pole earlier in the day. It was his fourth pole of the season and unlike tonight, he went on to pick up the win in three of those races after starting in the top spot.

The teammates swapped the lead nine times, including four times in the closing 25 laps.

Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate Derek Kraus completed a BMR sweep of the podium with his third-place run, while fellow rookie Will Rodgers finished fourth.

Julia Landauer rounded out the top five.

Buddy Shepherd, Michael Self, Todd Souza, Trevor Cristiani and Matt Levin completed the top 10.

With the win, Gilliland pushed his points lead to five over Eggleston. Kraus is third in the standings, two ahead of Rodgers, while Self completes the top five.

The Clint Newell Toyota 150 presented by NAPA Auto Parts will air on NBCSN, Saturday, Sept. 2 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be back in action in the NAPA Auto Parts Idaho 208 at Meridian Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 30.

Oregon Stop Offers A Unique Opportunity For Teams


Via NASCAR PR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West returns to the state of Oregon for the Clint Newell Toyota 150 presented by NAPA Auto Parts on Saturday, August 26, at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon.

Douglas County is a .375-mile facility located inside the Douglas County Fairgrounds — featuring an historic covered grandstand — hosted its first NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race in 1966. After a five-year absence from the track, the K&N Pro Series returned last season in a race won by Ryan Partridge, who became the series’ 10th different winner all-time at Roseburg.

And while the track itself offers beautiful mountain views all around it, most eyes will be on the K&N Pro Series West championship battle, which only seems to tighten with each passing race. Chris Eggleston of Erie, Colorado, won his fourth race of the season last time out at Washington’s Evergreen Speedway and moved within two points of leader and defending series champion Todd Gilliland with only four races remaining. Gilliland, of Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, has won five of the 10 races to date.

History offers little indication of who might hold the upper hand this weekend: Both Gilliland and Eggleston made their only career starts at the Roseburg track last season, finishing sixth and seventh, respectively.

FAST FACTS:
The Race: The Clint Newell Toyota 150 will be the 11th of 14 races on the 2017 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West schedule.

The Procedure: The starting field is 22 cars, including provisionals. The first 18 cars will qualify through the group qualifying process with the remaining four spots being awarded through the provisional process. The race is schedule for 150 laps covering 56.25 miles.

The Track: Located at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Roseburg, Oregon, the .375-mile oval is the state’s premier paved oval. This will be the tracks 14th visit to the track. Ten different winners have been celebrated in the previous events.

Race Winners: There have been 10 different winners in the 14 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West races held at Douglas County Speedway. Eric Holmes, who won three consecutive from 2008-10, has the most career victories at the track.

Track Records: Mike Davis holds the track qualifying record set at 119.276 mph on June 30, 2007. In 150-lap events at Roseburg, Eric Holmes holds the race record of 62.616 mph (53 minutes, 54 seconds) sent in July of 2008.

CLINT NEWELL TOYOTA 150 NOTES:
BMR Has A Handle: Until Ryan Partridge snapped the streak last season, Bill McAnally Racing had won five consecutive races at Roseburg — certainly a good sign for BMR teammates Chris Eggleston, Todd Gilliland and Derek Kraus this weekend.

Peyton Sellers kicked off the streak with his win in 2006, followed by Brian Ickler in 2007. Eric Holmes then won the next three consecutive races at Roseburg, making him the only three-time winner in series history at the track.

When Gilliland won the pole for last year’s race, it marked the third time in four races — and fourth time in the last six — that BMR teams had won the pole at Roseburg.

Up Front: Starting position has been key at Roseburg.

Half of the 14 series races in history at the track have been won from the pole, while three others — including each of the last two — have been won from the outside of the front row.

No driver has ever won at Roseburg from outside the top five starting positions. Jack McCoy (1966) and Johnny Steele (1968) are the only drivers to win from further back than fourth, each started fifth.

Rookie Battle: The Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award continues to be a battle this season.

While Derek Kraus holds a five-point advantage over Will Rodgers in the official rookie standings, the two drivers sit much closer than that in the overall standings. Kraus is third, just one point ahead of Rodgers.

Rodgers has more top fives (six) and more top 10s (eight) than Kraus, though Kraus has finished second on three different occasions this season — at California’s Kern County Raceway Park, Washington’s Spokane County Raceway and Colorado National Speedway — and he knocks on the door of his first K&N Pro Series West win.

Shepherd Is Back: Bakersfield, California, driver Buddy Shepherd will be making his fourth career appearance with the K&N Pro Series West when he pilots the No. 27 for Jefferson Pitts Racing at Roseburg. It will be Shepherd’s first career start at Roseburg.

Shepherd has two career top fives in three career K&N Pro Series West races, including a career-best finish of third at Idaho’s Meridian Speedway in 2015. In his short track career, the 17-year-old driver already has nearly 60 career wins combined in both asphalt and dirt competition, and this summer he’s already won in Pro Late Model and Super Late Model competition.

Zamora Setting Records with Roseburg Victory



Via NWSLMS Media

Roseburg, OR (June 17, 2017) The past couple months have been a whirlwind of excitement for Brittney Zamora. She turned eighteen, graduated from high school with International Baccalaureate honors, and in the same day made an awesome showing with the Northwest Super Late Model Series, Inc. (NWSLMS) at South Sound Speedway, earning her the top spot in the championship point’s standings. To back that up, this past weekend at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon, Zamora broke a 3-year old track record in qualifying, and won the Home Insulation of Roseburg 125, for her first super late model feature event breaking records for the northwest. Zamora became the first female touring super late model series division point’s leader and feature winner.

As the fast qualifier on the 4/10th track, Zamora rolled the invert at six cars. Riley Watson and Jan Evans would lead the field to green. From her sixth starting position, Zamora thrilled the fans and took over the lead by lap 20 on her way to her first super late model win. An emotional Zamora stood in victory circle with her proud dad, Mike and mom, Tobi on the phone.

“It was an incredible feeling getting that checkered flag!” said Zamora. “My team and I have been working so hard since the beginning, and all of our hard work is starting to pay off! Getting that first win is definitely making my team and I hungry for more! Setting these new records and becoming the first female to do these things has definitely fit into our goals for this year. We hope to continue to do well, to lead the points series and get more wins under my belt.”

Zamora expressed an interest in racing some of the “200 Lap” shows in the area, and even an opportunity to run with the K&N Pro Series West. “I have always wanted to experience these races from behind the wheel,” noted Zamora, “and would be so grateful to get the chance to. Our team is budgeted for the NWSLMS, but we are always seeking sponsorship for additional races!”

Zamora had nearly a two second margin of victory over Umpqua, Oregon’s, Brandon Ash. Ash, the former track record holder and DCS champion, has raced in the NASCAR Winston West division, as well as having several starts in what is now the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup. Quincy, Washington’s Mitch Kleyn finished third. Kleyn is in hot pursuit of Zamora in the point’s chase. Jan Evans of East Wenatchee, WA finished fourth, and Pete Harding making the long haul from Langley, B.C., Canada rounded out the top five.

Riley Watson and Jan Evans brought the field to green, with Watson taking the early lead. A spin by Brooke Schimmel and Mike Sackett brought out the first caution flag. On the restart, Watson drove in deep and got into the side of Jan Evans forcing him to second place. Jan Evans gave Watson a tap to let him know he didn’t appreciate it, and the two of them ended up spinning, along with Stephanie Evans who was trying to avoid them, which brought out the second caution. Alan Cress and Harding led the field to green with Zamora right behind. Cress took the lead as Zamora got by Harding. Zamora looked inside of Cress to take the lead, never looking back.

The next event for the NWSLMS is at Meridian Speedway in Meridian, Idaho. http://meridianspeedway.com/

Cress Looking for Home Track Advantage at Roseburg



Via NSLMS PR

WENATCHEE, WA (June 13, 2017) In the fourth stop on the 2017 schedule, the Northwest Super Late Model Series Inc., (NWSLMS) will make its first ever visit to the 2/10th mile oval at Douglas County Speedway (DCS) in Roseburg, Oregon. Currently sitting sixth in the championship standings, Alan Cress is hoping for a little home track advantage this visit, as he’s been racing late models at DCS, considered his home track, since 2001.

Like most youngsters, Alan started racing before he was legally able to drive. He took his 1976 Camaro to four street stock championships, before moving into the late model division in 2001. Winning not only the 2001 championship, Alan also nabbed the most popular driver award. Alan attributes many of those successes to his Dad, Stan Cress, and Jim Hiley, who taught him about race cars and how to set them up.

In 2009, Alan signed on with Bruce Latta of Bay City Motor Sports (BCMS) and made his debut with ASA Northwest Tour finishing the season 5th in the championship points. BCMS fielded many cars and drivers over the years, including in the Winter Heat Series and with driver Robert Sprague in the NASCAR Winston West series during the late 80’s and early 90’s.

Claiming 8 championships over the years, Alan has won many races along the way. Finishing 2nd in the Inaugural Summer Showdown in 2012 was one of the many highlights of his racing career.

Alan, his wife Patty, and their daughter Avery enjoy travelling and spending time with family and friends outside of racing, and are avid Oregon State Beaver football fans. Alan is very thankful for their support with all the time it takes to go racing.

Alan would like to thank Travis Sharpe at Racing Dynamiks, Jerry Jackson, Bruce Latta, Milo Anderson from Oregon Tool and Supply, and crewmembers Ray Keys and Don Jackson for their support as well.

Partridge Earns A Hard Fought Victory



ROSEBURG, Ore. - Ryan Partridge won the Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150 at Douglas County Speedway Saturday night after a late race entanglement gave him the opportunity he was waiting for.

Partridge, 28-years-old from Rancho Cucamonga, California, battled to stay in the top-three for 113 laps, falling as low as third to Bill McAnally Racing teammates Todd Gilliland and Chris Eggleston. It was on the next lap, that the course of the race changed and propelled Partridge to the top of the board.

Gilliland and Eggleston were battling side-by-side for the top spot when the defending NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion made contact with the Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate causing them both to spin. Partridge managed to avoid serious damage and took control of the lead.

Despite damage to his hood, the series veteran held off a charging Gracin Raz and Riley Herbst the remaining 36 laps to earn his second victory of the season. Raz and Herbst finished second and third, respectively.

Noah Gragson, Julia Landauer, Gilliland, Eggleston, Blaine Perkins, Ron Norman and Nicole Behar rounded out the top 10.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will make its return to Utah Motorsports Campus on Sept. 10 & 11 for a road course doubleheader.

The Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150 will air on NBCSN Friday, Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
