Field Chases Partridge As Series Returns To Quarter-Mile

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 5, 2016) – A new winner will be celebrating in Victory Lane at Idaho’s Stateline Speedway. And for the top eight NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion contenders, a win could propel them back into championship contention. Or, in Ryan Partridge's case, further cement his points lead.

The series returns to the quarter-mile track in Post Falls, Idaho, Saturday for the Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150. For the past two seasons, Partridge's former Sunrise Ford Racing teammate James Bickford has earned the victory – recording his first career win in his seventh start in 2014 and collecting his first 21 Means 21 Pole Award en route to his second career win.

Partridge recently took the top spot in the standings from Todd Gilliland on the strength of his fifth top-five finish in six races. Last year at Stateline, the 28-year-old from Rancho Cucamonga, California, finished fourth.

Bill McAnally Racing teammates Chris Eggleston and Todd Gilliland are second and third in the standings, respectively. They will both be looking to bounce back after some bad luck at California’s Sonoma Raceway. This will be Gilliland’s, 17, first K&N Pro Series West start at the short track, while Eggleston, 25, finished 11th last year.

Jefferson Pitts Racing duo Noah Gragson and Gracin Raz finished second and third, respectively, last year at Stateline.

White Dominates, Wins Second Straight Firecracker 100

By Matthew J. Sullivan

One of the most highly anticipated events of 2016 took place at Redwood Acres Raceway this past Saturday nights the 3/8-mile pavedoval played host to the Don Graham Memorial Firecracker 100 presented by Bi-Coastal Media. The race was named in honor of former Acres racer, Don Graham who passed away several weeks ago. In addition to the racing on track, a spectacular fireworks show capped off a fantastic evening for a packed grandstand of fans.

Due to the schedule for the night, heat races were scrapped in favor of ‘A’ and ‘B’ trophy dashes for each division. Bethany Rapp set fast time in the California State & Federal Employees Credit Union roadrunner division with a 20.939. Dominic Vogelsang and Steve Paiment were the winners of the two trophy dashes. In a unique twist, the first 10 laps of the 20 lap feature were run in the normal counter-clockwise manner while the final 10 laps were ran clockwise. Vogelsang led the opening six laps before Rapp took over the lead. The caution came out at halfway to turn the field around and running backward proved to be advantageous for Rapp who went virtually unchallenged in remaining laps. At the finish it was Rapp winning her first ever feature over rookie James Nickles. Paiment took third while Tyler Peach and Jake Keeling rounded out the top five.

It proved to be a fantastic night for James Moore in the Fortuna Wheel & Brake bomber class. Moore set quick time with a 18.325 and took the trophy dash victory. Moore had stiffer competition in the 25-lap feature event. John Lally led the opening eight laps until Matt Simon took the lead. Moore finally maneuvered his way to second on lap 12 and after brief battle, was able to snatch the lead away from Simon on lap 15. Simon did all he could to hang on to Moore but wasn’t able to. At the finish it was Moore winning by three seconds over Simon followed by Ryan Ahrens, Lally and Kimberly Sorrels.

Dylan Hagmann was surprisingly quick in his first-ever start in the Humboldt Hydroponics mini stock division as he set fast time with a 18.928. Brian Murrell, Jr. and Jarrett Mayo were the two victorious drivers in the trophy dash races. Murrell, Jr. held the lead in the first two of the 25-lap main before giving way to Rick Estes. Unfortunately, Estes’ time in the lead was short as he lost power which handed the lead to Mayo. The best battle on the track was for second as Eugene Palmer and Gary Klinetobe fought which allowed Mayo to pull away to a comfortable lead. At the finish it was Mayo winning by three seconds. Palmer held off Klinetobe for second while Hagmann and Brett Murrell completed the top five finishers.

17.322 was quick time for the Thunder Roadsters set by Chris Sarvinski. In the trophy dash, Sarvinski had trouble as he and Ronnie O’Neil made contact in turn three which resulted in irreparable damage to Sarvinski’s car. Donnie Brown was the trophy dash victor. The 25-lap main featured one of the best races of the season as O’Neil and Tommy Payne had a spectacular duel for the race lead. Brown led the opening stages of the race before losing the lead to Aaron Byers. On lap 10, O’Neil took the lead and it was at that point that he and Payne staged their epic duel. Payne got by O’Neil on lap 17 but O’Neil was able to retake the lead on lap 21. O’Neil was able to hang on from there as he narrowly took the win over Payne, Byers, LeRoy Marsh, Jr. and Brown.

Cody Winchel was fastest in qualifying for the Legends division with a 18.061. Larry Cantrall and Robert Miller were victorious in the two trophy dashes. Brent Mack led lap one of the 25-lap main but couldn’t hold off Miller who took the lead on lap two. Miller has been dominant in the division in 2016 but had a serious challenge in Winchel. On lap 11, Winchel used the inside line to take the race lead. Winchel was able to pull away at the end thanks to Miller having his hands full with Brad Curtice. At the finish it was Winchel taking the win over Miller, Curtice, Colby Furia and Mack.

The Mid City Motor World late model field featured several scratches before racing took place. Both David Henderson and Luke Hall had issues in Friday’s open practice and were unable to race. On Saturday, engine troubles sidelined Marty Walsh for the night during qualifying. Roseburg, Oregon driver Brandon Ash set fast time for the Don Graham Memorial Firecracker 100 with a 15.848. Richard Knight won the slower dash while Ash won the quicker. During trophy presentations, Ash pulled the number eight pill for the invert for the 100-lap feature which fittingly put Eric Graham, Don’s son on the pole.

Graham led the opening five laps of the main but it was Brandon White who appeared to have the best car in the field. White took the lead from Graham who got stuck on the outside line and lost several positions. The story of the race was attrition as several cars fell out during the event including Ryun Leazer, Mic Moulton and Mike Sackett. At the front it was White holding around five car lengths over Ash in second.

Things got interesting on a restart with 15 laps to go as Ash made contact with White in turn one to take the lead. White fell to fourth but quickly regained his composure and moved by Knight for third. A subsequent caution allowed White to make a great restart and move by Ash for the lead. Ash fell back to fifth as White pulled away over Graham who methodically made his way back to second. At the finish it was White winning his second straight Firecracker 100 over Graham. Ash recovered to take third while rookie Eddie Klein had his best run of the season in fourth. Another rookie, Tim Crenshaw had a solid run and rounded out the top five in fifth.

Racing on the 3/8-mile at Redwood Acres Raceway is off for several weeks before returning on July 23rd. The North State Modifieds will be the featured attraction at the Acres for the second and final time in 2016. One of the most anticipated events of the year follows on August 2nd when the Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series returns to the 3/8-mile paved oval for the third time.

Outlaw kart racing at the Acres returns Saturday July 16th. After that event, there will only be two more chances to see the karts in action. Saturday July 30th is the second to last event for the karts while Saturday August 27th is the final event of the year.

Beeler Emerges With Firecracker 100 Win At Stockton 99 Speedway

Via PCS Media/Blakesley Sports Media

STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA (July 3, 2016) - Saturday's Firecracker 100 for the Ron Strmiska Sr. Memorial at Stockton 99 Speedway ended with on-track fireworks and Modesto's Mike Beeler came away with the victory. The green-white-checkered finish saw Beeler get past Jacob Gomes to lead the final two laps for the $4000 win. Beeler, the 2014 series champion, is he sixth different winner through the first seven rounds of the Pacific Challenge Series.

Beeler's victory came from seventh on the grid in front of a crowd estimated north of 3000 for one of the biggest races of the season for the sponsored series.

Seven cars broke the track record in Sunoco Race Fuels qualifying including 2015 Firecracker 100 winner John Moore with a 13.104 second lap. Points leader Jeremy Doss of Upperlake, CA won the Strmiska Memorial Dash for $500 to win to earn the pole for the feature race. The race started after the annual fireworks show concluded and saw outside pole sitter Jacob Gomes take the lead at the conclusion of the first lap.

The first caution for a spin also relegated Travis Milburn to the pits for a stop for repairs. By the fifth lap of the race Tracy Bolin had navigated his way to fifth after starting ninth, while Kyle Gottula was up to eighth from 12th. Ron Strmiska's grandson Ross had a busy race throughout the night battling back-and-forth with Cole Moore while Bolin challenged Beeler for fourth. Milburn navigated back up to tenth at quarter distance at lap 25.

Lapped traffic became a factor for Gomes as he tried to hang on to his nearly two second advantage over Doss and John Moore. Things heated up midpack with Cole Moore and Gottula both getting past Strmiska in subsequent laps on lap 34 and 35.

Strmiska got Moore back a few laps later before Moore slowed dramatically to draw a caution lap 42 and retire from the race. The first attempt at a restart saw Bolin and Milburn mix it up, sending Milburn for a spin where he collected Stockton's Greg Potts. Both were eliminated from the competition.

Beeler used the restart to turn up the wick on Doss for second position, which he took over on lap 48. Doss appeared to be in trouble with heavy pressure from Bolin and Gottula among others in a tight pack. Things boiled over in turn two on lap 52 when Bolin was bounced from the pack and had slight contact with Danny Malfatti as he spun. Bolin's front end damage was significant and the contact with Doss was enough for Doss to take a pit stop as well. Bolin was out of the race after a strong month of June with a win at Shasta and a fourth at Roseville.

Gottula ran as high as second with 20 laps to go as the race stayed green near the finish. John Moore suffered a pair of flat tires that sent sparks flying from the #27 car to set up the green-white-checkered finish. Beeler and Gomes made hard contact on the first attempt at a restart, with Gomes showing smoke when the caution flew.

On the second attempt, Beeler and Gomes ran in a dead heat on lap 98. The Stockton crowd rose to their feet as Beeler took over the lead on lap 99 and Gomes spun diving into turn one. Strmiska and Gottula made hard contact avoiding Gomes and slid into the backstretch exit ramp, and Matthew Wendt spun a few hundred feet past them in turn three. Beeler dashed away with the win ahead of Doss, Elk Grove's Mike Hite, John Moore, and JR Courage. Moore was eventually moved up to third in the final rundown as Hite was dropped to fifth for a post-race infraction. Gomes reveled later that the smoke was a broken power steering line that left fluid on the race track before the subsequent series of melees.
