Bryan Warf Set To Close Out Season For Orchex #8 Sprint Car

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (October 14, 2016) – Idaho's Bryan Warf will climb back aboard Glenn Hutchison's #8 Orchex / All Valley Towing Rex Hutchison Beast for this weekend's Orchex King of the Wing Western Sprint Car Series finale at Tucson Raceway Park. Races will take place Friday and Saturday nights at the progressively banked 4/10s mile oval with Hutchison's team in contention for the owner's championship and Warf mathematically in the hunt for the driver's title.

Hutchison utilized the services of Tennessee's Kyle Edwards for last weekend's Royal Purple King of the Wing national races at California's Stockton 99 Speedway in Stockton and Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield. The races were co-sanctioned by the Western Series with Warf driving for Pat Russell in the #91 entry that utilizes Rex Hutchison power.

Edwards had never raced at the tough 68 year-old quarter-mile in Stockton on Saturday night and qualified 13th with an 11.873 second lap. His evening improved with a second place finish in the heat race to set up the main event. He went on to finish seventh in the hotly contested 30 lap main event.

From the series' smallest track, the national tour moved on to Sunday's championship finale at the immaculate Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, CA. At more than a half a mile it is one of the biggest and fastest winged sprint car tracks in the country. Edwards clicked off a 15.181 second lap at 118.569 miles per hour average to time in sixth. He ran third in the heat race but his biggest run of the weekend came in the feature. Edwards led the first five laps of competition and ran within the top-five for much of the race before a late race spin relegated him to sixth in the final finishing order.

For this weekend's Western Series activities at Tucson, Warf climbs back into the #8 trailing second in points by just 30 markers with the points leader not confirmed to attend at press time. At minimum, Warf will be engaged in a spirited battle for at least second in drivers points despite missing one round of the Western Series. He has three wins and one second place finish in his starts for Glenn Hutchison this year. Hutchison's team leads the owners points by 12 points over the car campaigned by national champion DJ Hamilton.

Racing action will be chronicled all weekend long on the King of the Wing Facebook and Twitter pages. You can learn more about Dylan Hutchison Racing at or by visiting the team on Facebook at keywords “Dylan Hutchison Racing”.

Evans Claims Third Consecutive NWSLMS Title

Wenatchee, WA (October 12, 2016)– For the third consecutive season Garrett Evans has earned the Northwest Super Late Model Series championship. Evans adds to his already historic career as this year’s title marks the driver’s seventh late model touring championship en route to over 350-career main event victories.

Coming into the 2016 Evans still felt like he had something to prove having never won a race on the series since its was formed in 2014. Consistency paid off for the East Wenatchee veteran as he captured the series first two championships based on strong finishes. During his 2016 campaign Evans proved his team had taken their program forward with victories at Yakima Speedway (Apple Cup), Spokane (both series stops at the half-mile) Stateline Speedway’s Idaho 150.

“Heading into the Northwest Super Late Model Series season we were coming off some bad performances back East and at the Winter Showdown.” Evans said. “You start asking yourself questions, like maybe you’re losing your edge or if you’ve still got it. I really wanted to try and get a win on the series this year.”

The season started off with the 60-year old showcasing his talents by winning April’s historic 50th Annual Yakima Speedway Apple Cup.

“Wining the Apple Cup was pretty amazing, it had been awhile since I had won at Yakima Speedway and the race meant a lot to me with it being my first series win as well.”

Evans tried to carry that momentum with him into his home track of Wenatchee Valley Super Oval for the running of the Leonard Evans 150, a race named after his late father. Shelby Thompson bested the eventual series champion in a late-race shootout.

In May the series headed to the tricky half-mile Spokane Super Oval and once again Evans would take the checkered flag as he held off series championship runner-up, Braeden Havens. The series would stay in the Inland Northwest as they ventured to Stateline Speedway with Evans snagging his third victory of the season, the Idaho 150, in a hotly contested race.

“Winning three of the first four races showed myself and my crew that we had a great car and combination and it gave me some confidence back that I could still get it done.”

The series took a seven-week break then returned to Stateline Speedway for the Idaho 200, which showcased Havens as he captured his first career NWSLMS victory.

“The Idaho 200 was probably our toughest race of the year because we knew we had a car that could win. We got mixed up in a late race incident and it was a tough one for both the team and I. You work so hard each week and those are the races you wish you had back to do over.”

Evans 19th place finish after an accident was his worse of the season. That tightened up the point’s battle between Evans and Ryan Wells who at that time was sitting in the second position in the championship chase.

In late August the series made the journey back to Spokane Super Oval.

It was the same result for Evans as he held off a late race charge from young gun, Zack Beaman. With the series heading into the final two races of the year, Evans had built a commanding championship points lead.

As the series raced into the month of September with its Neal Newberry 125 event at Evans home track of Wenatchee Valley Super Oval, it looked as if the veteran had another win up his sleeve. After setting a new track qualifying record in time trials, Evans rode out a 15th place finish after a late race flat tire.

Evans strong qualifying efforts and solid race finishes throughout the season set himself up to be able to clinch the NWSLMS title by taking the green flag at Yakima Speedway’s 29th Annual Fall Classic. The series veteran did a little better and was battling for the race win, but finished second to Jason Jefferson in the historic race.

“It would have been amazing to win the Fall Classic and cap off the amazing year with that but I’ll take a 2nd place finish to a guy like Jason. We’ve had some bad luck at the Fall Classic the last couple of years and it felt good to finish that race on the podium.”

The season was a successful one for Evans as he captured the Wheel Chill Pole Award four times, finished first or second in six of the eight races en route to his four victories.

“I can’t thank my crew enough for all they did this year on the car and Brian Andruss my Crew Chief with all the hours he spends working on these cars to make them as good as they are. Thanks to all my sponsors and my family for the support this season. Thanks to the series and staff for all their hard work this year as well. I don’t know how many more years I have doing this racing thing but this was a special season for me and I won’t forget it.”

October Classic 100 To Wrap Up 2016 PCS Season Saturday

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA (October 12, 2016) - The Pacific Challenge Series presented by concludes its 2016 season with Saturday's non-points "October Classic 100" at the All American Speedway in Roseville, CA. One of the most highly anticipated events on the PCS calendar, the PCS Super Late Models are joined by the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West for its season finale "TOYOTA/NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by TriCo Welding" for a huge night of racing. Legends of the Pacific and California Mini Cups are also scheduled to compete.

Jeremy Doss of Upperlake, CA, a 2016 member of the Kulwicki Driver Development program, just completed his second championship season with the PCS after winning the season finale at Ukiah Speedway en route to the title. Doss also won the 2012 PCS championship and his 2016 season has included three PCS wins and wins at the Montana 200 and the Eureka Fall Spectacular. The 19-time PCS main event winner won the 2014 October Classic when it was a points race but has not won a Roseville race since.

Doss' main rival at Roseville this year has been Jason Romero of Cameron Park, CA. Romero swept all three 2016 PCS races at the facility and is the 2009 track champion at the one-third mile. Romero and Doss traded the lead on four different occasions in an exciting September 24th points race at Roseville. Romero has led 89 laps total at the facility this year.

Modesto's Mike Beeler capped off his third straight top-two points finish in the PCS with the 2014 championship and second in the points for both 2015 and 2016. He has had perfect attendance throughout that stretch but no Roseville wins. He'd like to change that on Saturday night. The other driver aiming to change his Roseville fortunes is Tracy's Jeff Bischofberger who ran second in the September 24th event. Bischofberger finished third in the PCS standings despite still driving for his first series win.

The other drivers with local ties set to battle include the potent father-and-son duo of John and Cole Moore. The Granite Bay drivers race identically prepared Camaros with John winning the 2015 PCS championship and he is also the defending winner of the October Classic 100. Son Cole, the Sacramento State student, will race double-duty in both the K&N West for Bill McAnally Racing and in the PCS event. He was the 2015 PCS Rookie of the Year but is yet to visit PCS victory lane in his career.

Three-time All American Speedway track champion Matt Scott also figures to be in the mix on Saturday night. Scott previously won a Late Model event held over the K&N weekend before it was sanctioned by the PCS, but an SLM win would be a nice boost for his stellar resume. He has four top-tens in six PCS starts at Roseville with career best finish of second.

Roseville's Eric Schmidt is the 2013 PCS champion but has also never won a PCS race at his home track, where he is a multiple time track champion as well. In seven career Roseville starts he has a best finish of second with four top-fives. He will drive a #29 Sierra Speed Chevrolet that Randy Hedrick last drove in the September 24th race.

The strong entry list also features multiple time Roseville Late Model race winner Travis Milburn, 2006 Westcar Late Model Series champion Shannon Mansch, Redwood Acres Raceway drivers Kenny Demello, Mic Moulton, and Ryun Leazer, Shasta regular Ryan Peeples, Joe McDonald aboard Mike Hite's #70, and many more. Several drivers not entered are expected to join the fold as well.

Activities will get underway on Friday with a scheduled optional practice session, pending weather. Hauler parking is tentatively planned to take place regardless of conditions with updates to be posted to the PCS and Bill McAnally Racing social media pages. If practice occurs as planned it will be $30 per pit pass with gates opening at 3 p.m. and practice from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m.

On Saturday morning, pit gates open at 10 a.m. with a pair of practices scheduled. Grandstand gates open at 4 p.m. when the PCS will stage a group qualifying session. The October Classic 100 is expected to go green at 7:10 p.m. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series, West will follow.

Tickets for the October Classic 100 can be pre-purchased at Adults ages 12+ are $30 in advance, while Military will get a discount of $25 and kids 6-11 are $15. Kids 5 and under are FREE! All prices increase by $5 at the gate.

Doss bags $2,000 Fall Spectacular Win

By Matthew J. Sullivan

For the first time since 2013, Redwood Acres Raceway played host to the Fall Spectacular this past weekend. It was the 24th annual running of the event which first started in 1990. Seven divisions partook in the two-day event which was capped off with a 100-lap late model race.

The California State and Federal Employees Credit Union roadrunners were one of the two divisions that raced a full schedule on both Saturday and Sunday. Dave Rogers from Ukiah, California paced qualifying on Saturday with a 20.385 lap. Rogers took the trophy dash win as well as a win in the fast heat while Bob Ratzlaff won the slower heat. Dominic Vogelsang led the opening five laps of the 20-lap main but Rogers had the better car as he took the lead on lap six. Rogers would go on to cruise to the win over James Nichols, Vogelsang, Jordon Paiment and Nick Ford.

Sunday’s roadrunner qualifying was again paced by Rogers with a 20.246. The trophy dash win went to Nichols while the heats were taken by Vogelsang and Rogers. The 20-lap main was similar to the previous night as led the opening portion of the event, this time for eight circuits. As with the night before, it was Rogers who had the stronger car as he maneuvered to the lead on lap nine and held on from there. At the finish it was Rogers sweeping both feature events. Vogelsang placed second while Nichols, Ford and Paiment rounded out the top five.

The Thunder Roadsters were the other division that raced both days. Ronnie O’Neil set fast time on day one with a 17.333 qualifying lap. Aaron Byers claimed the trophy dash win while O’Neil took the heat race. Byers led the opening 1/3 of the 30 lap main before giving way to O’Neil who was able to lead the rest of the way to take the feature win. Byers held off Tommy Payne for second followed by Chris Lawrence and Dax Kinsey.

O’Neil was again fast time on Sunday with a bit of a faster time, a 17.317. Chris Sarvinski took the trophy dash win while O’Neil won the heat. Sarvinski dominated the 30-lap main as he was able to get past Donnie Brown on lap three. Sarvinski pulled out to a substantial margin as Brown tried to fight off the faster competitors for second. At the finish it was Sarvinski taking the win followed by O’Neil, Byers, Lawrence and Payne.

2015 and 2016 North State Modified Series champion, Darrin Knight paced the modifieds with a 16.422. Veteran Willie Thompson won the trophy dash and heat races. Thompson led the opening nine of the 30 lap main but it was Knight who proved to be superior as he took the lead. Knight went on to win over Thompson, Sierra Furia and Orion Mosher.

Derek Copeland substituted for Brian Kamisky on Saturday and he set quick time for the Legends cars with a 17.975. Copeland went on to win the trophy dash and heat races. Kamisky hopped into his car on Sunday for the 50-lap main event. The feature was slowed at the halfway point when Tyler Peach and Anissa Curtice had a meeting in turn two with Curtice hitting the tire barrier. Fortunately she was okay. Nobody could keep pace with Kamisky who started from the back and took the lead on lap seven. At the finish it was Kamisky getting the $500 victory. Brad Curtice placed second followed by Buddy Cox, Brent Mack and Daniel Whitley.

Qualifying for the Humboldt Hydroponics mini stocks was paced by Rick Estes with an 18.956. Jarrett Mayo won the trophy dash as well as the heat which awarded him the pole for Sunday’s 40-lap main. The two strongest drivers in the feature were Mayo and Estes. The two traded the lead on lap 15 but contact on lap 16 sent both to the rear giving Brian Murrell, Sr. the lead. Mayo regained the lead from Murrell on lap 31 and was able to take the win over Murrell, Sam Brown, Estes and Nick Ford.

The Fortuna Wheel and Brake bomber division had a stellar field for the weekend with 20 cars showing up to race. Terry Pittman set the pace in qualifying with a 18.229. Kolby Jackson took the trophy dash win. Richard Knight won the first heat which awarded him the 11th starting position for Sunday’s first main event. Sacramento racer, Erick Ray took the second heat win which gave him the pole position.

The first main event was dominated by Ray. The best fight was for second place as Brian King, Ryan Walters and Pittman battled for the second position. Ray led all 50 laps taking the $1,000 win in what proved to be a rough first main event. Walters beat King for second while Pittman and Corey James rounded out the top five. Ray drew the six pill for the invert which gave Wyatt Roach the pole for the second feature.

Due to his win in the first main, Ray had the opportunity to take $4,000 home. Besides earning $1,000 for winning the first main, he could earn $1,000 for winning the second main, $1,000 for sweeping both mains and an additional $1,000 for having the highest finish between the two main events.

Roach led the opening lap of the second feature before Pittman was able to take the lead. Pittman held on until lap 14 when Ray was able to get to the lead. The first half of the main was much cleaner than the first race was until a rather scary incident involving Kimberly Sorrels, Matt Simon and David Jones in turn four brought out the red flag. Thankfully all three drivers were okay. Ray looked to have the race in hand until a broken axle on lap 24 dashed his hopes. Pittman took the lead back and never lost it again. At the finish it was Pittman taking the $1,000 win over Walters, Brian King, Kolby Jackson and Wyatt Roach. Walters was awarded $1,000 for having the best overall finish in the two races.

Qualifying for the Fall Spectacular 100 late model race was paced by hometown favorite, Brandon White with a 15.900 with 21 drivers in all timing in. Three drivers who did not qualify were Jeremy Doss, Randy Houston and Scott Baker. Doss missed qualifying but was able to race in the slower heat while Houston and Baker had issues in practice which knocked them out of the weekend’s action. Marty Walsh took the win in the first heat which awarded him the 11th starting spot for Sunday’s 100-lap affair while Brandon Ash took the second heat win and pole position for Sunday.

Ash led the first four circuits which were slowed twice by caution flags. On the lap five restart, David Miller took the lead. Junior Roddy got past Ash for second on lap 18 and began a serious bid for the top position. By lap 24, Doss had maneuvered to third after starting 14th. On lap 26, fan favorite Jim Walker fell out. Another caution bunched the field and on the restart Miller and Roddy fought hard for the lead. The two got together and slowed off turn two on lap 29 which allowed Doss to make a thrilling three-wide pass for the lead.

Doss appeared to have the race well in hand by the halfway point while second place Miller appeared to have his hands full with his car. Roddy was able to take second on lap 52 and Miller began to fall out of the top five as White, Eric Gannon, Derek Copeland, Ash and David Henderson were all able to get past. Ash fell out of the race on lap 65.

The race was slowed several times in the final 30 laps which allowed Roddy and the rest of the field to close on Doss. Each restart however, Doss was able to retain his lead. The yellow flags helped Miller regain the handling in his car as he was able to get back to fourth on lap 76. At one point in the final stages, Roddy was able to get right to Doss’ rear bumper but Doss was able to withstand Roddy’s challenge. At the finish it was Doss taking the $2,000 victory, his second Fall Spectacular win. Roddy took second followed by White, Miller and Henderson. Doss’ margin of victory over Roddy was 0.771 seconds.

The Championship Battle Comes to a Close at All American Speedway

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 11, 2016) – The championship battle between Todd Gilliland and Ryan Partridge will come to a close this weekend at California’s All American Speedway.

Gilliland, 16, from Sherrills Ford, N.C., holds a 25-point lead over Partridge, 28, from Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., headed into the Toyota/NAPA Auto Parts 150 presented by TriCo Welding Supplies.

The Sunoco Rookie of the Year winner and the veteran have been dueling for the top spot all season long, swapping the lead three times. Gilliland, a member of the 2016 NASAR Next class, held the lead up until a misfortune at Sonoma opened the door for Partridge to take first in the standings. The veteran held the spot for two events before Gilliland took it back with the first of three straight wins.

The NASCAR Next driver only needs to finish 22nd in order to win his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series West championship and become the first Sunoco Rookie of the Year to win the title in the same year since Scott Lynch in 2003.

Gilliland (16 years and five months) would also surpass Cayden Lapcevich as the youngest champion in any NASCAR national or touring series (16 years, 10 months and 16 days). Before this season, the record was held by 2015 Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano (17 years, 3 months and 28 days) when he won the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship in 2007.

Doss Wins Fall Spectacular

By Matthew J. Sullivan

Upper Lake, California racer, Jeremy Doss took the big late model win in the Fall Spectacular 100 Sunday afternoon at Redwood Acres Raceway. It was Doss' second victory in the Fall Spectacular, his first coming in the 2012 running of the event. 22 drivers started the 100-lap event which featured many of the top late model drivers in Northern California and Southern Oregon.

Doss' run through the field

Originally, Jeremy Doss was not scheduled to appear at Redwood Acres Raceway until Sunday. Pre-race tech issues at Madera Speedway disallowed him from participating in the late model events at that track on Saturday. Doss and his team travelled more than 400 miles from Madera to Eureka. While Doss was unable to participate in qualifying for the Fall Spectacular, he did show up in time to race in the first qualifying heat. Doss finished the heat fourth without any practice which gave him the 14th starting position for Sunday's race.

Doss' run through the field was both smooth and quick as he was able to get to the top five in the opening stanza of the event. By lap 30, Doss was in the lead after making a fantastic three-wide pass on both David Miller and Junior Roddy. Doss never lost the top spot from that moment on.

Walker snake-bit in Spectacular

Fan favorite, Jim Walker started the 100-lap race in the third position much to the delight of the partisan hometown crowd. Unfortunately issues forced Walker's famous blue 48 into the pits near the 1/3 portion of the race. The Fall Spectacular has been an event that has eluded the racing legend. Walker's best finish in the race came in the 1992 running where he finished third.

No rust for Roddy

For the first time since May of 2015, Junior Roddy was behind the wheel of a race car. The Gualala, CA veteran showed no signs that he'd been away as he was a contender for the victory from the drop of the green flag. Roddy was able to avoid serious issues when an early incident damaged his car to put the heat on David Miller who led the opening portion of the 100-lap event. Roddy did all he could to hang with Doss in the final part of the race but was not able to do so.

White comes from the rear

Brandon White won the Firecracker 100 event at the Acres earlier in 2016 and was one of the favorites to take the Fall Spectacular win. An early incident damaged White's car which forced him to pit and start at the tail end of the field. White methodically raced his way through the pack and ultimately got to third.

Miller recovers to finish fourth

Two-time Spectacular champ, David Miller looked to be the man to beat in the early going as he led the opening quarter of the race. A long run appeared to do Miller in as his car faded from the lead all the way outside of the top five. Several caution periods allowed Miller to cool his tires and bring the handling back to his car.

Underdog Henderson finishes fifth

For only the second time in 2016, veteran Acres racer, David Henderson partook in a late model event. Whereas Henderson previously filled the role as a substitute driver for Mic Moulton, the Fortuna, CA native was driving his own car for the first time this season. Henderson fought handling issues Saturday but Sunday his car seemed to be more in tune as he had a stellar race and a somewhat surprising fifth place finish.

A full, detailed report of all the action at Redwood Acres Raceway during the Fall Spectacular weekend will be posted soon on

Holmes Becomes Mr. October With Third $10K Madera Win

MADERA, CALIFORNIA (October 9, 2016) - Escalon's Eric Holmes officially became Mr. October by winning his third consecutive LoanMart Late Model Short Track Shootout for $10K to win at Madera Speedway on Saturday night. The 125 lap victory makes him 3-0 in the marquee event at the fastest one-third mile in the West, and he earned the victory in a green-white-checkered duel with 2016 track champion Matt Erickson.

44 LoanMart Open Late Models joined 30 Lucas Oil Modifieds plus season finales for 51FIFTY Junior Late Models, Super Hobby Stocks, and Mini Cups in the jam packed show. The Late Model, Junior Late Model, and Modified shows were each taped for separate tape-delay broadcasts for MAVTV.

After five heat races, a C Main event, and a B Main event, 26 cars were set for the feature. Adam Coonfield marched from last place in his heat race, through the C and B mains, and into the main event running the alphabet soup. Loren Kutz won the iPull-U-Pull $1000 B Main prize after the 30 lap race.

Upland's Donny St. Ours drew the pole and led the first seven laps of the event. 2016 Irwindale Speedway runner-up Nick Joanides tagged the wall and was out of the race by lap three. Holmes began to charge hard from second on the grid, using the inside to get the lead from St. Ours on lap eight. 2013 Short Track Shootout winner and former NASCAR K&N West champion Mike David turned up the heat on the Herzogs, overhauling Austin Herzog from the outside, then going inside Bryan Herzog. David and Bryan Herzog tangled on lap 18 for the first caution of the race with both drives being forced to restart at the back.

Matt Erickson started the race in ninth after the redraw and had already advanced to fourth by that point. The restart gave Modesto's Garland Tyler a chance to roll the outside to get as high as sixth. Oakdale's Blaine Rocha spun after contact with Jason Aguirre for the second caution of the race.

Carl Pearce spun down the backstretch on lap 25 but the entire field managed to avoid him before Tyler spun in turn four with a flat left rear tire for a caution. Coonfield was up into the top ten after coming through the C & B mains by that point of the race.

2015 Madera champion Buddy Shepherd took over second from St. Ours and then attacked Holmes. A lap 32 incident including Ross Strmiska, Coonfield, and David Ross in a three wide duel in turn three sent Strmiska spinning. Glen Cook tagged Strmiska at the end of the spin to end Cook's night.

Shepherd used the restart to take over the lead on lap 31 before Holmes fought back to get it back on lap 33. Rick Thompson spun with contact from David causing several cars to come flying in for another yellow on lap 38. St. Ours got sideways on the ensuing restart from third position and tangled with Erickson, sending St. Ours spinning and Erickson to the back of the field for involvement.

The eighth caution flew on lap 40 when Aguirre's night ended in high flying fashion as he flew over the top of Pearce on the front stretch. Both drivers were uninjured but done with heavy damage. Shepherd fell out of the race under caution with distributor problems. Holmes had a rough restart and was bumped back to the fifth position with 2016 Irwindale champion Trevor Huddleston becoming the fourth different leader. Ryan Hart used the long green flag run to come up into third with Dillon Tucker chasing him forward as well. Huddleston fell from the lead on lap 61 with mechanical problems and the surprise story was Jr. Late Model standout Austin Herzog, 14, taking over the lead position.

Herzog's lead was short lived as he slid up the hill in turn three with a flat tire forcing him to fall outside the top-five at the end of the lap 75 segment, with Holmes, Hart, Bryan Herzog the top-three at the break.

17 cars restarted for the finish several hours later with Erickson coming out of the sixth position. Erickson had a prolonged battle with Bryan Herzog for fourth but finally took the position on lap 91 and quickly passed Zampa for third on the inside. Three laps later Erickson moved past Hart for second.

By lap 100 the race was on with Erickson hounding Holmes for the lead, taking several looks inside in turns three and four. Erickson's pressure continued to mount until a late caution period set up a brief green-white-checkered finish. Holmes proved too strong as he stormed to his third Short Track Shootout $10,000 victory head of Erickson, St. Ours, Bryan Herzog, and Logan Zampa. Erickson's second place finish was enough for the series championship in a perfect eight-for-eight races in the top two places with five wins and three seconds.

The 51FIFTY Junior Late Models crowned their inaugural series champion with Las Vegas' Dezel West, 12, winning the series. Mentone's Austin Edwards, 11, spun on the initial start but managed to continue on. That gave Redwood Valley's Kolby Berry, 15, the lead, which he maintained by rolling the top side of the race track.

The 50 lap race was run in one single segment instead of the traditional split pair of 25 lap segments, which made for a different strategy for the series finale. Las Vegas' RJ Smothermon spun for a caution on lap five. Atwater's Jaden Rocha and Edwards came together for an incident that brought out the yellow on lap ten.

Lapped traffic became a factor in the race as Berry tried to pace Austin Herzog and West. Berry had to pit for a flat left front tire under a lap 36 yellow flag to surrender the lead in an unfortunate turn of events for him. That handed the top spot over to Herzog. Herzog appeared poised for a nice victory but a caution for Las Vegas' Kyle Keller spinning on lap 47 set up a three lap sprint to the finish.

Herzog got the restart he needed to get the race win for his fourth win of the season while West finished second to come home with the championship. Edwards finished third to unofficially to take third in the points as well with Smotherman and Berry the top-five.

Super Hobby Stocks also crowned a champion for 2016 on Saturday night with Stockton's Joseph Riechmuth getting the title in a very narrow fashion.

Jesus Hernandez led the first ten laps of the 30 lap main event before "Supermex" Eloy Bazan assumed the lead position. Britt Wasson had an incident on lap 20 and had to be towed off in turns three and four. The caution flag placed second in points Chuck Dozhier all over Bazan, with Dozhier taking the lead on lap 21.

Dozhier took the victory over Bazan and a hard-charging Jeremy Tucker, but Riechmuth's fourth place effort was enough to win the points standings over Dozhier by three markers unofficially. Thomas Suarez was the balance of the top-five.

Kyle Tellstrom came awfully close to sweeping the pair of Lucas Oil Modified races at Madera Speedway this season after winning the June 11th 75 lap contest and leading 25 laps on Saturday night. But it was former series champion Dylan Capello from Arizona getting to victory in the coveted $5000 to win feature. 30 cars jockeyed for 26 starting positions with a B main earlier in the affairs.

Ryan Partridge and Aaron McMorran had a tangle for a caution on lap five. Dave Arce spun in turn four for a lap 15 caution as well. By that point it was Tellstrom, Capello, and Tellstrom's teammate Wes Miller of Turlock at the front of the field. Dustin Tilbury from New Mexico was the next "Turn Four Victim" on lap 14 and again the field did a great job to avoid the spinning 17T car.

Cappello used a restart for Rich Lindgren stalling in turn two to take over the lead with points leader Matt Hicks giving Tellstrom all he could handle for second. Their battle in lapped traffic at the halfway point was one of the highlights of the event.

Tellstrom drove away from Hicks to apply late pressure to Cappello but it was too little too late with a 1.040 second victory for Cappello over Tellstrom, Hicks, Taylor Miinch, and 17th starting former track champion Scott Winters.

The Mini Cups had their final Madera race for 2016 as the youngest drivers at the speedway raced on the big stage. Hollister's Adam "The Bullet" Lemke completed the clean sweep taking qualifying, the six lap dash, and the 20 lap main event. His rival all year long was rookie Jackson Dukes of Clovis who ran second in the main event. Lemke led all 20 laps over Dukes, Calvin Hegje, Aaron Thomas, and "Lil" Bruce Bivens.
