Vernon Grabs Third Career Madera Pro Late Model Win on MavTv

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (April 27, 2019) – After a disappointing start to the season with two blown engines, Bakersfield’s Racin Vernon won round #3 of the Nut Up Pro Late Model Series at Madera Speedway, Saturday night. Vernon led twice including the final 14 laps of the 80 lap feature that paid $2,000 to win. In other action, Las Vegas’ Tanner Reif won his third career 51FIFTY Jr. Late Model 70 lap feature to extend his points lead as well.

Both series are televised for MAVTV with a total of 25 Pro Late Models and 15 Jr. Late Models in action on the one-third mile speedway.

Vernon drew the pole position and led the first three laps before a big incident slowed proceedings. Christian Roche had contact with Matt Erickson coming out of turn two that resulted in Roche sliding nose first into the turn three wall. Three-time $10,000 to win Short Track Shootout champion Eric Holmes spun to avoid but suffered damage that ended his night as well.

On the following restart, 2018 non-televised Madera Late Model champion Jason Aguirre and Carlos Vieira began their torrid side-by-side battle for the fourth position. The battle would stretch throughout the entire opening 50 lap segment. Jr. Late Model winner Tanner Reif, 13, made his Pro Late Model debut from 11th on the grid and promptly charged past fellow Jr. graduates Austin Herzog and Dylan Zampa to crack the top-ten by lap 15.

Vernon’s strong lead on the field diminished when he was mired in lapped traffic and by lap 25, 2018 Short Track Shootout winner Logan Zampa was hot on his trail. Erickson closed in as well, and ended up snookering Zampa for second on lap 28. The battle for fourth between Aguirre and Vieira grew to six cars deep in side-by-side fashion. The battle slowed when a caution flew for Tim Furin spun in turn two. Erickson apparently suffered damage to his right rear wheel trying to avoid.

Vernon charged past Erickson from the outside on the restart and fast-time qualifier Herzog knifed through to move into sixth. A lap 39 caution saw Herzog advance to third while Erickson drifted to seventh. The race went into the lap 50 break with Vernon leading Zampa, Herzog, Vieira, and Aguirre.

The restart from the break was significant as Zampa took the lead from Vernon off the line. The inside line all stumbled, which forced Aguirre back to tenth position in the process. Sheldon Cooper suffered serious damage to his car to force a lap 54 caution in turn one. Zampa maintained the top position from Vernon while Herzog peeked his nose inside of Vieira for third.

Vernon tracked down Zampa methodically, and then used lapped traffic to take the lead down the backstretch on lap 67. Herzog then cleared Vieira on lap 71 using lapped traffic to his advantage as well.

Both Logan Zampa and Austin Herzog were unable to close down on Racin Vernon, with the Bakersfield driver taking a 1.895 second win over Zampa, Herzog, Vieira, and Ross Strmiska.

Tanner Reif’s Jr. Late Model victory in the 70 lap contest for drivers ages 10-16 had plenty of excitement. Reif drew the pole alongside his younger brother Tyler. Each successive restart for an incident saw a brief battle before Tanner managed to slide in front of Tyler.

Round two winner Joey Iest tried to get around Tyler Reif off a lap 30 restart. The duo made contact which caused concern for Reif’s left rear tire. Meanwhile third in points Seth Wise was engaged in a back-and-forth battle with Jay Juleson with Juleson moving into fourth after some contact.

A caution on lap 38 brought the scheduled break to fruition two laps early. When things resumed, Tyler Reif used the outside line to take the lead from his brother on lap 39. After a lap 41 caution, Tanner took over for lap 42, before surrendering the lead back on lap 43 to Tyler. Tanner then appeared to take the lead for good on lap 44. Two laps later, Tyler Reif attempted to move up the inside of Tanner into turn one. They nearly made contact, with Tyler spinning the car through the grass to bring out the caution and force him to restart at the rear.

Seth Wise had moved up from fifth to second in just eight laps and restarted inside Tanner Reif. He was unable to challenge and fell into the clutches of Juleson. They ran side-by-side for ten laps until lap 59, when Wise spun off the door of Juleson exiting turn four. The caution flew and Wise restarted at the rear.

Tyler Reif had moved up to sixth at that point and entered into a furious battle between Kabe McClenny and Kyler Berry for fourth. The trio went three-wide down the backstretch, ending with Berry and McClenny making contact into the corner. The contact ended Berry’s race while McClenny lost three positions getting back into line.

Tanner Reif cruised home to victory ahead of Juleson, Iest, Tyler Reif, and eighth starting Jake Bollman.

The youngest drivers at Madera Speedway compete in the Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros with their race producing a first-time winner. Dylan Baptista won in just his second Bandolero start ever and did so in thrilling fashion ahead of 2018 champion Riley Massey.

Nathaniel Edwards led the first two laps before Massey led lap three and brought Baptista with her. Many of the cars in the pack slid around the track for much of the race in sideways fashion. Baptista took the lead on lap five before a caution on lap six brought the field together. Massey tried to crossover Baptista several times but he held onto the lead to take the victory. Trenton Eurto finished third while Joey Kennealy was the Mini Cup winner.

Mikala Stearns of Stockton won an electrifying 25 lap Hobby Stock race where three of the five starters led laps in the feature. Stearns and 2018 champion Steve Schermerhorn made contact on lap 21 exiting turn four that rewarded Stearns with the lead and knocked Schermerhorn back to third. Stearns led Triston Hansen and Schermerhorn across the stripe as the top-three finishers.

Jason Lawton has had the recent hot hand in Toyota Sedans and that trend continued, despite the presence of prior champion Jillaun Holden. Lawton managed to take a three second victory with JJ Brandsen finishing third.

Up next for Madera Speedway is the MAVTV televised North American Challenge Cup for 100 laps, the Vukovich Classic for MAVTV televised BCRA/POWRi Midget Series, USAC Western US Midgets, Legends of Kearney Bowl, California Hard Tops, Legends of the Pacific, and Southwest Tour Trucks.

Vernon And Reif Snag Win in MAVTV Action At Madera

Via Madera Speedway Media

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (August 25, 2018) – Bakersfield drivers continued their stranglehold on the RPM Mortgage Pro Late Models with Racin Vernon earning his second victory of 2018 while Las Vegas’ Tanner Reif won his first career 51FIFTY Energy Drink Jr. Late Model Series race on Saturday at Madera Speedway. The MAVTV-televised action played out on the one-third mile asphalt oval at the Madera fairgrounds.

For Vernon, the $2,000 win avenged a two year stretch full of ups and downs in the tough series. Incoming points leader Austin Herzog, 16, earned fast-time before drawing fourth in the redraw. Napa’s Logan Zampa won the pole and led the first four laps of the event. Vernon started third after qualifying fifth and nosed inside Zampa to take the lead on lap five.

The first caution flew on lap nine when double-duty racer Kayla Eshleman spun in turn two. Ross Strmiska used the restart take over second from Zampa on lap 11. Herzog followed suit moving into third on lap 15, with both passes made on the outside.

Herzog looked poised to dash to the front before a rear end failure brought his car to a halt at the top of turn two for a lap 15 caution. This played to the favor of 2016 champion Matt Erickson, who entered the night second in points but started a dismal 11th.

Leading rookie Adam Lemke of Hollister rolled the bottom to grab third from Strmiska and brought his teammate 13 year-old Jesse Love with him. Love, with eight career Jr. Late Model wins, is the youngest starter in series history.

Lemke then took over second from Zampa on lap 22. Lapped traffic tightened up the top-five cars on lap 33 before a caution when Jason Aguirre and JJ Ferguson bounced off the front stretch wall with heavy damage.

The caution flew again on lap 35 when Nick Grossi slowed with apparent issues in the rear end as well. Lemke closed down on Vernon for the lead coming into the lap 50 break with Zampa third ahead of Strmiska and Love.

Vernon slid sideways on the restart but maintained the lead making for a wild two-by-two battle behind him. Both Strmiska and Erickson attempted to swoop past Love on the outside while Lemke and Zampa continued to duel. The caution waved on lap 55 and Love took over third from Lemke on the restart.

Dillon Tucker briefly looked outside Lemke for fourth as well. Tucker had driven from 13th to fifth before he too suffered mechanical issues that derailed his evening.

Zampa and Love closed down on Vernon in lapped traffic on lap 61 before he managed to pull away again. Racin Vernon pulled away for the win with Zampa holding off a great battle with Love for second. Erickson unofficial took over the points lead by finishing fourth while Strmiska was fifth.

Tanner Reif finished second to his brother Tyler in the closest finish in Jr. Late Model history on July 28th. He made up for that performance by getting his first career win on Saturday night in the 70 lap feature. 15 drivers ages 10-16 years old took the green flag with defending champion Jesse Love leading from the pole.

Kabe McClenny had his night end prematurely when he slid up into Tyler Reif on a lap 10 restart in turn two. McClenny hit the wall and had to retire with damage.

Sixth starting Dylan Zampa, the incoming points leader, was the driver on the move as he worked his way up in to third by lap ten. Austin Edwards slowed with mechanical issues on lap 15 and was out of the race as well. Tanner Reif set a new track record in qualifying and drove from fifth up to second to challenge Love. The duo ran nose-to-tail for many laps until a caution on lap 23.

The restart allowed Dylan Zampa to snake into second but Reif took the position back on lap 34. Reif hounded Love all the way to lap 38 when Kayla Eshleman had an incident with Joey Iest in turn one. The scheduled lap 40 break occurred two laps early and Eshleman was removed from the race by race officials for her involvement.

The intensity level never faltered in the second half of the race as Tyler Reif took over third. Tanner Reif stormed to the lead on lap 48 and his lead over Love see-sawed from one car length to third car lengths over the rest of the race distance. On lap 65, Zampa charged back past Tyler Reif for third but he was too far behind the top-two to capitalize. Tanner Reif earned his first career win by .840 seconds over Jesse Love with Dylan Zampa third followed by Tyler Reif and Joey Iest.

MAVTV cameras were also rolling for the 14 car, 20 lap Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros. Bakersfield’s Kercie Jung took the lead on lap four and never looked back for the Bandolero win along with the overall win. The Mini Cup action was wild, punctuated by a lap one incident when the Bandolero of Ethan Nascimento spun in turn four. Both points leader Kale McClenny and Jayce McArthey were eliminated with damage while trying to avoid the spun out car.

Their misfortune thrust Napa’s Aaron Thomas into the Mini Cup fold as he held off Madera’s Joseph Holiday for the trophy. The Bandoleros swept the overall top-five led by Jung ahead of Seth Wise, Hank Hall, Zachary Ginn, and Trenton Eurto.

Legends of the Pacific presented 15 cars for a 35 lap feature and it was yet another redemption story. Sheldon Crouse had lost the August 11th race with a turn three spin on the final lap that involved Cody Winchel. The pair picked up where they left off, entertaining the fans with a battle that included four lead changes. Crouse finally made the decisive pass for the lead on lap 22. A caution on lap 26 brought the field back together but Crouse again drove away from Winchel. The top-five at the finish were Crouse, Winchel, Pete Soto, Chad Nascimento, and Braden Rogers.

Toyota Sedans was dominated by Jason Lawton, taking over the lead for the final time on lap 17 en route to a commanding victory. Recent race winner Greg Tyler was second ahead of 2016 champ Jillaun Holden and rookies Kyle Labrie and John Tevis, Jr.

Vernon Grabs Military Tribute Night Honors At Madera

Via Madera Speedway Media

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (May 26, 2018) – Bakersfield’s Racin Vernon avenged his round three misfortune to take a dominating win in Saturday’s Military Tribute Night at Madera Speedway, leading all 80 laps for the $2,000 victory. Vernon has led a total of 138 laps over the last two races in the challenging RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model Series on MAVTV.

Vernon led 58 laps in the April’s round #3 before spinning from the lead. Blaine Rocha took advantage to take the victory and parlayed that into fast-time in this weekend’s round four. The 33 car turnout was narrowed to 22 starters after a 25 lap B Main. Rick Thompson won the $500 non-qualifiers portion of the B Main.

Rocha started from the pole on a straight-up start but immediately yielded the lead position to Vernon. Two-time series champion Buddy Shepherd immediately slowed from the second row with a broken third link and retired to the pits.

A pair of cautions slowed racing on laps eight and nine and brought on the new Texas style restarts with Vernon by himself while Rocha was outside of third running Austin Herzog on each attempt. 2016 champion Matt Erickson and Glen Cook staged a long and sustained side-by-side race for fourth behind them. The caution flew again on lap 14 when Garland Tyler stalled in turn two after possibly tagging the front stretch wall.

Logan Zampa jumped outside Cook to take fifth on the restart with Kyle Gottula following suit for sixth. Rocha started to peek inside Vernon for the lead before a caution on lap 22. Erickson got swallowed up by both Gottula and Zampa on the following green flag run. The race’s next caution did not fall until lap 48 when Vernon tangled with lapped car Nick Grossi. Grossi spun and in the ensuing melee Cook drove hard into the front end of Zampa while Erickson suffered heavy front end damage as well.

The caution ended up bringing the field to the lap 50 break two laps early, with only Grossi ruled as an involved car. Cook’s race was over, however, with heavy damage while Erickson pitted in the infield for repairs to surrender his track position and restart at the rear. Zampa and Vernon were able to continue on unscathed.

After adjustments and MAVTV interviews, racing resumed with Vernon, Rocha, and Herzog maintaining the top-three positions throughout cautions on lap 61 and 72. Zampa and Gottula moved past Herzog and staged a spirited race for third that ended with them tangling into turn one. Gottula spun forcing Ryan Philpott to come to a stop. Round #3 podium finisher Jack Wood slammed into the back of the parked Philpott to end both of their races. Gottula’s race was over as well with a broken rear panhard bar, while Zampa was penalized to the back of the pack.

A five lap shootout saw Vernon successfully hold off Rocha and Herzog for the win. B Main winner Ross Strmiska came from 17th to finish fourth ahead of 19th starting Dillon Tucker in fifth.

A straight up start in the 70 lap 51FIFTY Energy Drink Junior Late Model Series race proved to the benefit of 2017 champion Jesse Love as he took a convincing victory. Love led the entire 70 lap affair after a sizzling 15.117 second lap in qualifying for a new track record.

His drive towards his eighth win in just his 12th Jr. Late Model start began from the pole. Love led comfortably ahead of second in points Tanner Reif of Las Vegas and 2018 two-time winner Dylan Zampa. The 11 car field for drivers ages 10-16 raced under green for 37 consecutive laps. The caution finally came out when Reif spun into the turn four wall after apparent contact with lapped car Calvin Hegje.

The caution ended up being the impetus for the lap 40 break, two laps early like in the Pro Late Model division. Smooth sailing continued out of the break with Love continuing his impressive performance. Zampa drove up to his rear bumper a few times but never was close enough to capitalize. Love coasted to a 1.6 second victory over Zampa and 10 year-old Tyler Reif. Kayla Eshleman drove from seventh to finish fourth, while Austin Edwards nipped Kabe McClenny for fifth by a nose at the finish.

Mini Cups vs. Bandoleros had their largest car count of 2018 with 13 entries in the pits. The race is a two-races-in-one event with two separate trophies awarded. Two-time Bandolero winner Kercie Jung of Bakersfield led the opening lap before Seth Wise led the second lap. Jung then wrestled the lead back which she held until lap ten. Wise led lap 11 before Jung spun on lap 12 for the race’s first yellow flag.

The yellow flag tightened up the race for the Mini Cup victory as well, as three-time winner Kale McClenny had contact with Aaron Thomas that saw McClenny’s entire front bodywork come off. Thomas was charged to the rear of the field for his involvement in the incident.

Jung quickly drove back through the field up to second behind Wise, while third running Riley Massey spun in turn four. Massey, winner of the third race, turned her car back around and continued but lost a lap in the process. Seth Wise took the Bandolero checkered flag and the overall win over Kercie Jung and Hank Hall, while Jayce McArthey won the Mini Cup trophy narrowly over Thomas and McClenny.

Modified Super Toyotas had five different leaders and five lead changes in their eight car, 25 lap event. John McCollum, Jr. led lap one before spinning out from the lead on lap two. Dave Lander led laps two through four before Bert Stephens held court. Stephens led the race to lap 16 before getting tagged by Ryan Reynolds into turn one to send him spinning. Both restarted at the back. Patrick Geiger assumed the lead which he held for only one lap before it was Lander back out front. Geiger managed to close back down on Lander, taking the top position on lap 20 and leading to the finish. Reynolds and Stephens drove back to the front to finish second and third respectively.

A full inversion for the Toyota Sedans did not deter 2016 champion Jillaun Holden. Kurt Davison led lap one before rookie Greg Tyler took over. Meanwhile Holden and Tim Curtis were cutting through the pack one-by-one. Holden finally passed Tyler on the outside for the lead on lap 19 and took the 25 lap win while Curtis was second ahead of Tyler.
