Schwartz Holds Off Wood for URSS/SSO Victory at 81 Speedway
The United Rebel Sprint Series headed to C. Ray Hall’s 81 Speedway Sunday night for the “Sprint Car Maynia” show with 94 Sprint Cars in three classes. The first installment of the 2017 Myer’s Racing Engines URSS National Points chase show was co-sanctioned with the Sprint Series of Oklahoma with 34 teams pulling through the gate for the $1,000 to win feature payout. Todd Schwartz wasted little time getting to the lead from his third starting position and then held off pressuring Joe Wood, Jr. on the final lap to claim his first career IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car Series win.
Brandon Anderson and Wood started on the front row for the twenty-five-lap feature with Schwartz taking the lead as the green flag fell with Joe Wood Jr., Anderson, Brandon Long and Steven Richardson rounding out the top five at the end of lap one. Lap two saw Andy Shouse and Chad Koch take over the 4th and 5th positions as Richardson fell back to sixth.
The leaders first encounter with slower cars occurred on lap eight when Chad Koch, who was running fifth, got the end result of two cars making contact on the front stretch and came to a stop in turn one. On the restart Jake Martens and J.D. Johnson were on the tail tank of Richardson looking to take the fifth spot away. Shouse made the pass for the position on lap twelve. At the races midway point it was still Schwartz the leader with Wood still five car lengths behind in second. Click here
Jake Bubak Scores Hard-fought URSS Win at RPM Speedway
The United Rebel Sprint finally got the monkey off of its back Saturday night before a packed house at RPM Speedway as twenty four teams rolled through the gate to do battle. Mother Nature tried to throw a wrench into the works right before the B Feature but failed to halt the racing action thanks to the Track Staff at RPM they had the 3/8’s mile oval race ready after a short break. The fans were treated to an epic battle as three time URSS National Champion Jake Bubak had to battle his way to the win with young guns Jed Werner and Tracey Hill to take the win.
Keefe Hemel led the field to the green with outside pole sitter Tracey Hill jumping out to the lead with Hemel, J.D. Johnson, Jed Werner and Brandon Long rounding out the top five. Jake Martens and Brandon Long made contact sending Martens for a tumble and bringing out the red flag on lap number two; both drivers were finished for the night.
On the ensuing restart Hill once again took the point with Werner grabbing the runner up spot from Hemel with Jake Bubak and Ty Williams rocketing around the top to relegate Johnson to the sixth spot. The top would stay the same for the following seven laps with Bubak slowly working his way up to Werner’s tail tank to challenge for the runner up spot. Bubak made the pass on lap number nine and set his sights on the leader Tracey Hill. Click for more
