This past weekend was a historical weekend as the first ever traveling Limited Series anywhere on the west coast had their first two races as a series….the ISCS Limited Sprint Series uses the ASCS points format…..There were 23 driver for opening night of the series at Cottage Grove Speedway…..the series does group qualifying and that is also your heat with a 6 car invert…so on Friday night Tyler would go out in Group #1 and set fast time with a 12.048 his third quick time of his young career….he would go on to start 6th in the heat and win his heat race. In the main Tyler was moving up and on lap 10 took over the lead and was gone as he was weaving his way through traffic, then on lap 13 he came off turn four and was push toward the wall and got a flat tire and his chance for the win, he would come back to get an 11th on the night….On Saturday night the series traveled to the coast and Coos Bay Speedway where 22 cars showed up to compete in night #2 of the ISCS Series…Tyler would get the 5th fastest time in his qualifying group and start on the outside of row #1 and pick up a 2nd in his heat….In the main there was no one going to touch the winner Kyler Barraza, but Tyler would try and after 25 laps would come home with a 2nd place finish…..so overall a good weekend and as disappointed as Tyler was for not getting the win on Friday he knows he has the car to win this championship……up next is onto the Marvin Smith Memorial two-day 360 Sprint show at Cottage Grove where he will drive the #28 of Mark Herz Racing…..

Brian Brown wins for the third week in a row at Knoxville….

Brian Brown Three-Peats at Knoxville Raceway!
Clint Garner Wins Another 360 Feature; Matthew Stelzer Dominates in 305’s

by Bill Wright                                                                                               

 

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 19, 2018) –  Brian Brown won his third straight 410 feature Saturday night at the Knoxville Raceway.  Brian was the last driver to claim three straight features at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World” (2014) and will attempt to become the first driver to win four straight since 1996 (Danny Lasoski) next weekend.  The Grain Valley, Missouri driver earned $4,000 for his 40th win at Knoxville aboard his Casey’s General Stores/FVP #21.  Clint Garner gained his 35thwin in the 360 class, while Matthew Stelzer earned his seventh career victory in the 305 class.

 

Before a lap could be completed in the 410 feature, Lynton Jeffrey spun.  Once green, Brian Brown led Kerry Madsen, AJ Moeller, Matt Juhl and Cory Eliason.  The ninth place car of Carson McCarl would spin at the bottom of turn four bringing caution.

 

Juhl gained third from Moeller on lap four, while Austin McCarl climbed into the top five on the same circuit.  Austin continued his climb to fourth on the next lap.  Brown entered lapped traffic on lap nine with Madsen in tow.  At the halfway point, the point leader heading into the night, Brooke Tatnell, pulled off with mechanical issues, ending a top ten charge.

 

Brown carved through traffic with Madsen in pursuit.  Juhl ran a strong third until his mount went up in smoke with two to go.  Brown went on to the wire to wire win ahead of Madsen, Austin McCarl, Eliason and hard-charger Davey Heskin.  Moeller, Josh Schneiderman, Hunter Schuerenberg, Scott Bogucki and Rager Phillips rounded out the top ten.  Brown set quick time over the field, while Carson McCarl, Schneiderman and Juhl won heat races.  Tasker Phillips and Justin Henderson tangled in their heat race, and both were done for the night, but uninjured.

 

“I knew with Kerry starting there (outside row one), it was going to be tough,” said Brown in Victory Lane.  “He’s a world class racecar driver…probably top five in the world.  When you’re next to him, you know you better go all you can go.  I didn’t really know where I should be on the track.  I watched Clint (Garner) in his A and he was running the bottom pretty good.  I wasn’t really comfortable down there…I like to run the fence, but you’re not going to win (Knoxville) Nationals that way.  You’ve got to be able to move around and I need to do a better job of searching.  When you have Kerry chasing you, you have to run as hard as you can.”

 

Clint Garner, like Brown, benefited from an invert pill draw of “0”, and led start to finish from the pole.  Ryan Giles chased him early ahead of Calvin Landis, Jamie Ball and Sawyer Phillips.  Nate Van Haaften would move into the top five by lap six.  On lap seven, Joe Beaver would make contact with the turn four wall and slow, bringing the caution flag.

 

Garner led Giles, Landis, Ball and Van Haaften back to green.  Ball would gain third on the restart, and only the top three would pass the flagstand before the yellow came again for Tom Lenz and Cody Wehrle.

 

Garner took off again.  Behind him Phillips moved from sixth to fourth by lap eleven.  Garner was into lapped traffic with two to go, but there was no stopping him.  Ball would get upside down on the final lap, erasing a strong third place run.  Garner was followed by Giles, Phillips, Landis and Lee Grosz.  Van Haaften, Jon Agan, Matt Moro, McKenna Haase and Paul Nienhiser completed the top ten.  Giles set quick time, while Van Haaften, Nienhiser and Garner won heats.

 

“The track was really nice,” said Garner in Victory Lane.  “For a little rain coming through this afternoon, we were wondering if we’d even race.  The track and everybody here did a great job to push through.”

 

Rookie 305 driver Jayce Jenkins got upside down to start the 15-lap 305 main event.  He was uninjured.  When the green fell, the feature went non-stop and Matthew Stelzer had no peer.  Mike Mayberry was the prime mover behind him, climbing from eighth to fourth by lap five.  Stelzer’s lead at the halfway point was 3.2 seconds.  He entered lapped traffic on the tenth circuit, but would pull away to a 5.4 second win.

 

Following Stelzer were Chris Horton, who finished a career-best second, Kevin Hetrick, who won the battle for third over Mayberry, and Josh Jones.  Ryan Leavitt, Eric Bridger, Rob Kubli, Devin Kline and Evan Epperson rounded out the top ten.  Bridger set quick time, while Stelzer and Joe Simbro won heats.

 

“We have this thing dialed in in heats and features, but we need to come a long ways in time trials,” said Stelzer in Victory Lane.  “You usually start in the front row if you qualify badly and they pull a (six) invert.  When you start up front, you can’t let it slip away, and we didn’t tonight.  The guys work their tails off.”

 

A $100 gift certificate to Jocko’s Auto Parts was awarded by the Knoxville Raceway Charitable Organization (KRCO) to a driver in each class by draw: Josh Schneiderman in the 410’s, Scottie McDonald in the 360’s, and Matthew Stelzer in the 305’s.

 

A two-week contest honoring area colleges charities went to the University of Missouri and “Rally for Rhyan.”  As a result, the Missouri flag will fly at Knoxville the rest of the year.  Over $3,300 was raised for charities of Iowa State University, the University of Iowa, Drake University and Missouri.
