Tyler Thompson Racing…..


Two weeks ago Tyler experienced the Lows of racing on Friday Night at Willamette to the Highs the following night at Cottage Grove….On Friday July 27th at Willamette in ISCS Series action…Tyler was coming through the field in a crash fest night filled with Red Flags and he happened to miss them all Until………….then with just 7 laps to go coming out of turn 3 he thought he had cleared AJ Harbaugh only to clip his tire and what happen next was mayhem….he flipped and bent the chassis and ruined his last wing…..he went from a 7th place or better finish to outside the top ten…..any hopes it looked like of winning the ISCS Championship were gone….didn’t look good for him to race the following night at Cottage Grove…..then Kevin Journey (Allison’s dad) came to the rescue and they went to his shop and pulled out a chassis from 2008 and wing that was red that said Blonde Bombshell on it….Kevin said it was 20 plus years old and he got it back then used….so the team put the car together and duck taped the number 7t on the side of the Blonde Bombshell and showed up to race…He qualified 2nd fastest in his group and was only fourth in his heat but found himself in the re-draw for the top eight spots….then what happened next is hard to believe with an old car put together by the team during the day Tyler starting fourth did a great move after the poll sitter stuttered on the start and darted down low and took the lead from the start and when Tyler got into lap traffic he looked like a seasoned pro…picking the right lines every time being patient and on Saturday Night Tyler experienced the highs this sport can bring as he brought the red winged Blonde Bombshell home for his first ISCS career win……it was a great drive by a young driver who was hoping to just finish and he pulled off the win…..it was on to two Nights last weekend with the Summer Thunder Sprint Series 360 Sprints…..Tyler would have a solid showing in the car with only a handful of races in a 360 Tyler held his own…On Friday Night at Cottage Grove he would get 2nd in his heat and finish a solid 7th in a field filled with great drivers…..On Saturday Night at Cottage Grove Speedway….he would finish 3rd in his heat and just miss out inside the top ten with an 11th place finish……Now its onto the ISCS Week of Speed with 6 races in 6 nights at five different tracks……Tyler enters the week just 16 points out of first place……wishing Tyler the best as he competes this week…..

Jason Solwold wins STSS at Cottage Grove Speedway

Jason Solwold Wins Night One At CGS With Summer Thunder Sprint Series
By Ben Deatherage
Cottage Grove, Oregon- The Summer Thunder Sprint Series made their annual trek to Cottage Grove Speedway on Friday, August 3rd, for their first of two nights of action at the historic 1/4-mile clay oval.  Twenty-two cars from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho as well as the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.  It would mark the twelfth race of the 2018 season for the series.
When the green flag would drop in the feature Jason Solwold would seize control of the top spot.  The Burlington, Washington pilot, racing for car owners Mike Anderson and Monica Baca, dominated the field as just when he would approach lapped traffic a caution would come out.  The incidents happened at the right times and Solwold went untested the entire time on his way to collecting the victory.  It is his fourth win, at four different tracks, with the series in the current campaign, his second win at Cottage Grove, and is a series-leading fifteenth triumph against the STSS tour.
Logan Forler, who now resides in Boise, Idaho, was second over Penngrove, California teenager Michael Kofoid, running for car owners Doug and Kathy Rutz, in third.  Fourth place went to Marysville, Washington driver Colton Heath, in the Kelly Welch and Alan Larson owned entry, while Salem’s Kyle Miller would round up the top five, in fifth, in the Kady Adelman owned mount.
Jason Solwold would set fast time of the night earlier in the program.  Heat races were won by Kyle Miller, Mill Creek, Washington’s Cam Smith, and Chris Schmelzle of Colville, Washington.
The Summer Thunder Sprint Series will remain at Cottage Grove Speedway on Saturday, August 4th.  For tickets and times log on to www.cottagegrovespeedway.com .  For more information regarding the Summer Thunder Sprint Series visit www.summerthundersprintseries.com .

Carson Macedo wins Night #2 at the 360 Nationals at Knoxville

Emotional Win Goes to Carson Macedo in Jason Johnson Racing #41 at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright                                                                                               


KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 3, 2018) – Carson Macedo will always remember his first win at Knoxville Raceway!  Saturday night, aboard the Jason Johnson Racing #41, the Lemoore, California native brought home an emotional victory that had the crowd on its feet on Night #2 of the 28th Annual Knoxville 360 Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank.  Joey Saldana earned the pole as high-point man for the weekend, while Gio Scelzi will start outside row one ofSaturday night’s 360 Nationals finale.  Rows two and three will be comprised of Terry McCarl, Brian Brown, Greg Hodnett and Tim Kaeding.


Cole Duncan led the field after the green flew in the 20-lap main event, ahead of Macedo, Terry McCarl, Wayne Johnson and Saldana.  On lap two, both Saldana and Johnson squeaked by McCarl who got loose in turn two, but a circuit later, McCarl would lead Kaeding back by Johnson into fourth.  A McCarl pass of Saldana for third was negated when AJ Moeller brought the only caution of the race with a spin in turn two.


Duncan led Macedo, Saldana, McCarl and Kaeding back to green.  Saldana would get a run down the backstretch and slide by both Macedo and Duncan to take the lead.  On lap six, Macedo would perform a slide job and take second, while McCarl would follow him into third on lap seven.


Saldana entered lapped traffic on lap eleven and Macedo closed.  A slight slowdown by Saldana was enough for Macedo to make his winning move.  While Macedo maneuvered lapped traffic well, McCarl reeled in Saldana in a battle for second.  The two would make contact, but Saldana would maintain his second place standing behind McCarl, Kaeding and Scelzi.  Duncan, Brooke Tatnell, Harli White, Johnson and Johnny Herrera rounded out the top ten.  Nate Van Haaften set quick time over the 48-car field, while Scottie McDonald, Chris Martin, Jack dover, Herrera and Matt Covington won heats.  Jordyn Brazier won the C main and Trey Starks claimed the B.


“There at the end, I was just counting down the laps,” said Macedo in Victory Lane with young Jaxx Johnson in his arms.  “I’m so happy for this team…Bobbi, Jaxx and Philip (Dietz).  My car was awesome anywhere I went.  We’ve just got to build on it.  Hopefully, we can keep this speed tomorrow night.  My car was so stable, I could just run over the cushion and come off.  I can’t say enough about what an honor it is to drive this racecar.  To be standing on the same stage that Jason Johnson was…this wasn’t the 410 Nationals but to fill this seat is definitely an honor.”


“Honestly, I know Carson is a hell of a racecar driver, but I’d say he had a good co-pilot in Jason Johnson,” said Saldana, who will sit on the championship poleSaturday night.  “They just did a great job all night.  It’s hard to put a driver in someone else’s car and run well.  They did something pretty extraordinary tonight.  I felt like the Rudeen car was good tonight.  We showed we had speed, but it just wasn’t meant to be.  He just beat me.  He put his car in the right spot and I didn’t.  I’ve lost a few races that way here.  You just try to learn from your mistakes and hopefully, we don’t do that tomorrow.”


“You always want to win, but you have to love it when this #41 car comes back out here and wins it,” said McCarl, who will start inside row two on Saturday night.  “I’m a big fan of Carson Macedo too.  Joey and I have been racing like that a long time.  There was a little banging.  He made a pretty bold move.  I just have to thank my guys and Don Long.  McKenna (Haase) ran this (Moyle) motor a few nights and they were kind enough to let me run it.”


The 28th Annual Knoxville 360 Nationals presented by Great Southern Bank concludes with the $15,000 to win finale Saturday night!  The 305 sprint car class will also be in action.  For more information, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com

Michael Kofoid keeps winning in the Doug Rutz 8r……

Kofoid Wins $10k at Bob’s Burgers & Brew Summer Nationals


Alger, WA – Michael “Buddy” Kofoid won the richest prize of his career, as the 16 year old from Penngrove, CA drove the Rutz Racing #8r to victory lane and a $10,000 pay day at the 29th Annual Bob’s Burgers and Brew Summer Nationals at Skagit Speedway.

Drama filled the A Main for the Summer Thunder Sprintcar Series presented by Here 2 Wire and Data Pro. Cam Smith held the early lead but appeared to be eclipsed by the second Rutz Racing entry piloted by Jared Peterson on the 5th circuit. Subsequent to Peterson making the pass, head flagger Kirby Hoyle was struck by an unidentified object, knocking him down while two cars spun in the second corner. With a split yellow system in place, speedway officials were not able to determine where the caution would have been called/come out on the field. The decision was made to go to the last completed lap for the lineup, which was lap four where Smith was still in front. Open red conditions ensued while Hoyle was tended to (he would return to the flagstand to finish the race) as the teams worked on their cars. On the ensuing restart, Smith rocketed back out to the lead with Peterson and Kofoid, from his third place original starting spot, in hot pursuit. Kofoid made an aggressive move on Peterson coming out of turn two on lap seven to take second and began working Smith for the lead as the pair entered traffic. On the seventeenth lap, Kofoid slid Smith for the lead coming out of turn two, then denied Smith’s crossover as the raced past the start finish line. Smith kept Kofoid close as the two continued to carve through slower cars on the very slick surface before his run ended on the 30th circuit. Smith had closed to the rear nerf of Kofoid on the 29th lap, but contact with Jason Reed on the front straight away as the pair came to 10 laps remaining sent Reed flipping and Smith to the infield with front end damage. Kofoid would restart with a pair of lapped cars between himself and last year’s Summer Nationals winner Jason Solwold and Garen Linder. As he got back to the throttle pedal, Buddy streaked away, never seeing a challenge from the Shaylen Raye Motorsports #18 or the Linder Racing #22 to score the biggest win of his young career. JJ Hickle advanced from ninth to fourth and Austen Wheatley came forward seven spots to finish fifth. Greg Hamilton was the Triple X Hard Charger, advancing from twenty first to thirteenth. Kelsey Carpenter was the fastest of the 35 time trial cars (the previous nights top four were locked in). Heat winners were Wheatley, Devin Borden, Eric Fisher and Trevor Cook.

Nick Evans returned to his winning ways this weekend at Skagit Speedway, winning both Friday and Saturday night with the Northwest Focus Midget Series. Garrett Thomas led the first eight laps of the Bardahl Summer Challenge Round Six sponsored by Whirlyball Seattle before Evans beat him to the inside of the first corner to take the top spot. From there, Evans survived a handful of restarts to take his second straight win, followed by Tristin Thomas and hard charging Jonathan Jorgenson, who came out of the B Main to take third. Heat winners were Garrett Thomas, Jayme Barnes, Alden Ostrom and Evans.

In an entertaining green to checkered affair with no stoppages, Max Sanford won the 2018 Tuner Nationals event. Sanford, a regular at Grays Harbor Raceway, led lap one but was passed by Cliff Ballenger, who held the top spot for laps two and three. Sanford rallied to jump back into the lead on lap four and went the rest of the way with Jon Gunderson on his heels. Despite Gunderson being right there, Sanford never lost the top spot again, scoring the win in only his second ever race at Skagit Speedway. Vance Hibbard nipped Gunderson at the line for second in one of the best Tuner mains in memory.
