Herzog Earns First Career Open LM Win, Eyes Vegas Return



Via Austin Herzog PR

CLOVIS, CALIFORNIA (November 5, 2018) – 16 year-old Austin Herzog closed the deal on his first career Open Late Model victory, leading 66 laps for the $5,000 win on Saturday night at Orange Show Speedway.

Herzog drives the #11 Richard Herzog Construction, Superior Door & Frame #11 that he campaigns at Madera Speedway in the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model Series as well. He finished the 2018 season at Madera in the runner-up spot in the championship on the strength of five top-five finishes.

He opened up the weekend by leading Friday practice on the quarter-mile oval in San Bernardino, CA, then he led qualifying for his sixth fast-time of the year. He lined up fifth for the 100 lap contest with 17 Open Late Models competing. Herzog used a series of cautions early in the race to methodically work his way to the front, taking the lead on lap 35.

A caution flew with 27 laps to go but Herzog did not relax his pace, charging to his best lap of the main event on lap 88. He eventually accumulated a 3.9 second lead for a straightaway advantage on second place at the finish line. The finish improves on his second place run in the Greg Ross Memorial 57 at the speedway back in May as well.

“You know I love this track. I’ve always enjoyed it since the first time I was here,” Herzog said in victory lane live on Low Budget TV. “I feel like it really fits my driving style. I can’t thank my crew, my dad, and all that sponsors that got this car here enough and now we’re on to Vegas.”

Herzog is aiming to make his second career SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour start on November 17th when he rejoins the series at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Herzog competed at the Bullring in October in the Fall Classic for Super Late Models, grabbing quick time in the $15,000 to win event before crossing the stripe second. The finish was nullified by a post-race infraction, but the team soldiered on to Bakersfield the following week for the October Classic for his SRL debut. Herzog overcame mechanical troubles in qualifying to drive from the back of the field for a solid sixth place finish. He will look to build on both of those runs in the “West Coast Short Track Championships” which will be televised live on Lucas Oil Racing TV and aired on MAVTV at a later date.

Race fans can watch Austin Herzog in action on MAVTV, Thursdays at 5pm and 8pm Pacific time. Round #7 of the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model Series airs November 22nd.

Austin Herzog Motorsports thanks Richard Herzog Construction, Superior Doors, Sanger Construction, Castech Pest Control, Jose Casillas, Stark Naked Enterprises, Wilson Motorsports, LC Services, and Darrell Herzog Roofing for their support.

Potential sponsors are encouraged to contact info@austinherzog.com for more information.

Ryan Partridge Dominates for Orange Show Victory

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.

Eggleston Dominates Again At Orange Show Speedway



SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Orange Show Speedway has been a perfect fit for Chris Eggleston.

For the second consecutive season, Eggleston was victorious in the Sunrise Ford 150 presented by Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse. Saturday night, the 28-year-old Erie, Colorado, driver won the Coors Light Pole and dominated the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race on the quarter-mile.

It was his second win of the season and seventh time in his career. The victory also marked the 2015 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion's sixth top five finish of the season.

Sheldon Creed and Todd Souza came home second and third, respectively.

Kody Vanderwal and Takuma Koga rounded out the top five. Both earned the free pass midway through the race, and rebounded for career-best finishes.

Series championship points leader Todd Gilliland, who entered the night on a four-race win streak, was involved in a multi-car incident on Lap 121. He rallied to finish sixth and was the last car to finish on the lead lap.

Eggleston led a race-high 71 laps, as there were 12 lead changes among five drivers. He sliced Gilliland's championship lead down to 11 points.

Bill Kahn and Michael Self finished in seventh and eighth, respectively, both one lap down. Matt Levin and John Wood rounded out the top 10.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West will be back in action from Colorado National Speedway on Saturday, June 10 for the Toyota 150, the seventh of 14 races on the schedule. Last year, Eggleston followed up his Orange Show win with a victory at his home track in Colorado.

The Orange Show 150 will air on NBCSN on Friday, May 26 at 8 p.m. ET.

Record-Setting Campaign Continues For Gilliland



DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Most drivers will tell you that the key to winning races is starting up front. Defending NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Todd Gilliland is taking that adage to new heights as the series heads to California’s Orange Show Speedway on Saturday for the Orange Show 150.

With Gilliland’s 21 Means 21 Pole Award last weekend at Washington’s Spokane County Raceway, the Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, driver earned his record breaking fifth consecutive pole — the previous record of four straight was established by Jim Insolo in 1978 and shared by Ron Eaton, who accomplished the feat in 1982.

Now with five consecutive poles and the point lead heading into Orange Show, Gilliland, who became the youngest NASCAR national or touring series champion last season, is on the verge of making even more history. The 17-year-old, the NASCAR Next driver celebrated his birthday on Monday, has his sights set on a fifth consecutive win to tie the series mark set by Hershel McGriff, who won five straight races during the 1972 season.

In an interesting bit of symmetry, one of McGriff’s wins during that record-setting run came at Orange Show. He won his fourth of his five consecutive wins at the San Bernardino oval during the 30-race season in which McGriff won 12 times.

RACE: Orange Show 150

FAST FACTS:
The Race: The Orange Show 150 will be the sixth of 14 races on the 2017 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West schedule.

The Procedure: The maximum starting field is 22 cars, including provisionals. The first 18 cars will secure starting positions based on the group qualifying process. The remaining four spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race will be 150 laps (37.5 miles) with a five-minute break occurring at or near the conclusion of lap 75.

The Track: A .25-mile asphalt oval, Orange Show Speedway is the longest continually-operated race track in the nation, having held competition since 1947.

Race Winners: There have been six different winners in the nine previous NASCAR K&N Pro Series West races held at Orange Show. Jack McCoy won four times at the speedway, including three straight from 1969-1971.

Pole Winners: In the six previous events at Orange Show, there have also been six different pole winners. There have only been two drivers to take home multiple poles at Orange Show, Jack McCoy and Ray Elder. McCoy won three poles at the .25-mile oval while Ray Elder earned two.

Orange Show 150 Notes:
Success Rate: Chris Eggleston, who won the season opener at Arizona’s Tucson Speedway, returns to Orange Show as the track’s winningest active driver at the track. In fact, he’s the only driver entered in the Orange Show 150 to have previously win at the San Bernardino oval.
Eggleston won last year’s 150-lap event at Orange Show in the series’ return to the facility after a 38-year absence. Eggleston led the final seven laps en route to victory after starting third in the field, taking the lead from pole sitter Ryan Partridge in the closing stages of the event.

The Erie, Colorado, native and the 2015 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion, has five top-five finishes through five races this season, having finished on the podium in all but the second event of the season at California’s Kern County Raceway Park, where he finished fourth.

Rookie Crop: A total of four rookies sit in the top nine positions in the K&N Pro Series West standings headed into the Orange Show 150.
Derek Kraus of Stratford, Wisconsin, ranks third in the standings and is closing in his first career win. Kraus, who has three top-five finishes through the first five races of the season, finished second at Spokane last weekend. It was his second series career runner-up finish.

Garret Archer sits fourth, just three points behind Kraus, with an identical stat line of three top fives and four top 10s through the first five races. Will Rodgers is sixth in the standings and Kody Vanderwal ninth.

Learning Curve: Jesse Iwuji returns to the site of his best career finish this weekend at Orange Show.
Iwuji, of Carrollton, Texas, posted his only career top-10 finish at Orange Show last season, and the timing of the tight quarter-mile on the schedule couldn’t be better for the 29-year-old driver. Iwuji enters this weekend coming off his best finish of the season, 15th at Spokane County.

Iwuji is driving the No. 36 Champion Parts/Lights Out/Bullet Proof Energy Chevrolet owned by former National Football League linebacker Shawne Merriman.

Big Apple: After finishing fourth in the final standings a year ago to become in the highest-finishing female in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West history, Julia Landauer’s season got off to a slow start before taking steps in the right direction over the last two races.

Landauer, of New York, New York, enters Orange County off three straight top-10 finishes, including a sixth-place run in the second event of the NAPA Auto Parts Twin 100s at California’s Irwindale Event Center and a seventh-place finish at Spokane. She has moved from 12th to seventh in the standings with her impressive runs as of late.

Last season, Landauer posted the second of her seven top-five finishes at Orange Show, where she started eighth and was one of only nine cars to finish on the lead lap.

Lucas Oil Modified Series Unveils Schedule For 2017 Season



Corona, California (January 19, 2017) - A 10-round battle for the championship, two lucrative special events and four dates combining the West Coast's top touring divisions are the highlights of the 2017 schedule for the Lucas Oil Modified Series.

It begins February 11 with the third Winter Showdown on the ultra-fast half-mile oval at Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, California, and ends with the traditional West Coast Short Track Championships at The Bullring at Las Vegas (Nevada) Motor Speedway November 18.

Those special events, two of the four in which the exciting open-wheel Modifieds will share headline status with the SRL Southwest Tour's Super Late Models, are the bookends for the 10 races that will determine the series' Hoosier Tire West points champion.

Those 10 races will take the series back to the eight tracks in four states that produced the closest points race in the series' 11-year history in 2016. A record eight different drivers had parked in the winner's circle and the points lead had changed hands a record four times before Lakeside, California's, Matthew Hicks emerged with a 4-point win over Taylor Miinch, with Scott Winters 10 points back in third.

The smallest winning margin previously had been the 12 points that separated champion Jim Mardis and runner-up Austin Barnes in 2011.

"We're looking forward to another extremely competitive season," series promoter Greg Scheidecker said. "We think the tracks in our series offer the most varied racing you'll find in any touring series and the results would seem to indicate it's also the best racing you'll find. That's ultimately a tribute to our drivers and teams, of course, but we've tried to help them as much as possible by maintaining continuity and familiarity.

"The dates of this year's races almost mirror last year's, but we have changed the track rotation a little. One reason for that was so we could say yes to the opportunity to headline the show at Kern County on the weekend before the Fourth of July, and we had to make a change at Orange Show Speedway. We've moved that race two weeks later, to September 23, because of a date conflict with the National Orange Show that would have impacted our race teams and fans.

"Changing the date there means we'll close the regular season with three events in five weeks. That's asking a lot of our teams, but they've shown over and over that they're the best around. It definitely will add some drama to those last three races."

The 2017 schedule for the Lucas Oil Modified Series:

February 11 - Kern County Raceway Park, 1/2-mile oval, Bakersfield, California*
March 11 - Havasu 95 Speedway, 1/4-mile oval, Lake Havasu City, Arizona
April 8 - Tucson Speedway, 3/8-mile oval, Tucson, Arizona
May 20 - The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, 3/8-mile oval, Las Vegas
June 10 - Madera Speedway, 1/3-mile oval, Madera, California
July 1 - Kern County Raceway Park, 1/2-mile oval, Bakersfield, California

October 7 - Madera Speedway, 1/3-mile oval, Madera, California

Dave Grayson's Hot Racing Tickets For November 5th

At press time there were approximately 30 entries with more expected. Many of these entries are towing in from the midwest states which prompts the question: why would they travel all the way to California to participate in this event. The answer is major bragging rights and a winner's check worth $10,000.

Also on the Saturday night race agenda will be the OSS's popular Mini Stock division who be treating their fans to a 100 lap main event that pays $1,000. Mini Stock racing at the OSS has a tendency to get rather intense sometimes and, with $1,000 on the line, we can pretty much expect the intensity level to be turned up a few notches Saturday night.

On Saturday race day there will be a second practice from 12 to 2 pm followed by Mini Stock qualifying at 215 pm and Outlaw Figure 8 qualifying at 315 pm.

Tickets for this show are very budget friendly for all of this racing. General admission adult tickets are only $12 and $10 for seniors and youth. Kids age five and under as well as military personnel will be admitted free. There's also a $5 charge for the main parking lot.
