Cranston King of URSS Belleville 305 Nationals 

Luke Cranston’s smooth on the fence driving style has always been a good fit at the Belleville High Banks and Saturday night proved no different as the “semi” retired driver jumped into Danny King’s mount and claimed his 4th victory in the 8th Annual Belleville URSS 305 Nationals in Belleville, Ks. 

North Platte Ne. native John Webster and Zach Blurton out of Quinter, Ks, led the 19 car field to the green with 3rd starting Nebraska’s Tyler Drueke taking an early lead going into turn one. Fifth starting Cranston would make a bold move around the top to settle into second and by the end of lap one it was Drueke, Cranston, Webster, Blurton and Oklahoma’s Ty Williams rounding out the top five. 

Cranston wasted no time getting around Drueke as he drove around him on lap two and began a blistering pace in clean air. 

Blurton would make quick work of Webster also on lap two as did Williams on lap 4. Lap 5 got extremely dicey as Blurton would drive under Drueke and Williams would use the very top rim to pass both Blurton and Drueke to move into second and begin his charge to run down the high flying Cranston who had already built up a 15-20 car lead over the field. Wichita’s JD Johnson and Nebraska’s Toby Chapman moved into the top 5 by the halfway point in the 20 lap feature. 

As each lap progressed Williams began cutting into Cranston’s lead and by lap 15 was within two car lengths and on lap 17 was on his bumper. Catching Cranston was the easy part, passing him was another. Williams tried one last move driving down to the bottom hard in turns 3 and 4 on the final corner to pull beside Cranston coming off of four but momentum is the key to Belleville and Cranston had it, beating Williams by less than a car length at the finish and collecting the $2000 winners share. click here for more.....


URSS Bullring Nationals go to Gullion 

A cloud of dust is how Adam Gullion ended his night.  But it came in celebration, not disappointment. 

The Nebraska sprint car driver did multiple donuts in celebration Friday night after winning the United Rebel Sprint Series Bullring Nationals at Rush County Speedway in La Crosse in his first trip to the quarter-mile track. 

“It’s been a really good trip,” said Gullion, of Lincoln, Neb. “There’s nothing better than winning. It definitely makes the ride home a lot more enjoyable.”

If it hadn’t been for an earlier phone call from Zach Blurton, Gullion might have been racing elsewhere Friday night — or not at all. Instead, he made the long trek to La Crosse on the urging of Blurton, a fellow competitor who races against Gullion when he travels to Nebraska. 

“It’s good having him down here,” Blurton said. “I enjoy having his company. They’re like family to us. They’re our home when we go to Nebraska, so we’re more than glad to have them. And it’s good to see them have success when they came down here.” 

The success might have belonged to Blurton, if not for the phone call. The Quinter 305 sprint car driver finished second after making a late charge.  click here for the rest of the story

Shouse Wins URSS Wheatshocker Crown

 

 

A night earlier, Andy Shouse joked that he needed more laps around the dirt oval at RPM Speedway in Hays since he hadn’t raced there for several years.

 

Apparently, Shouse is a quick learner.

 

On Sunday night, the 305 sprint car driver from Mustang, Okla., walked away with a victory and $2000 in the ninth Wheatshocker Nationals in Hays. He also took home the Custom Pit Boss Smoker Grille presented by Lance Pittman of S&W Supply for being the high point driver of the Wheatshocker weekend.

 

Shouse made a late charge en route to finishing second during Saturday night’s qualifier. On Sunday, he drew the fourth starting spot.

 

“To be honest, we really just do our basic stuff,” Shouse said about being so fast at the 3/8-mile oval. “I think the big thing is we don’t really race at one race track all the time. We usually travel all over and see a lot of different places. I think that definitely helps us when we come to someplace new. It’s always tough when you get locals who have run at this race track a number of times. But we’re usually pretty good when we go to a new race track of getting it figured out in good time.”  Click here for the rest of the story and results


Richardson Wins URSS Wheatshocker Prelim 

Steven Richardson has been so close to winning the Wheatshocker Nationals in the past. 

He remembers that race all too well from 2015. 

“About a foot or so,” the Liberal sprint car driver said about finishing second to Zach Blurton in a photo finish. 

So Richardson isn’t shy about what it would mean to win the national race at RPM Speedway in Hays — along with the $2,000 payout and an expensive grill as an added bonus.  

“Man, honestly, if I were to sweep the Wheatshocker Nationals and take home the grill and the money (Sunday) ... ” Richardson said, trailing off a bit. “Because I love this place so much. The fans here are awesome, and the stands are always packed full. People that come to race here are great. This would be huge. This is my Knoxville Nationals. If that means anything to most racers, that’s how important it is. I wish we could race here more often. I would never leave.” Click here for more.....

 


Ty Williams Wins URSS Night Four - Terry Richards is Summer Sizzler Champ 

 

Oklahoma’s Ty Williams capped off Summer Sizzler Week with the United Rebel Sprint Series as he topped a 24 car A feature Sunday night at Lexington Raceway in Lexington NE.  

 

With the track promoter agreeing to start all 24 cars that checked through the gate on the last night of the 4 race week, it was outside front row starter Jake Martens who would jump into the lead over pole sitter Nic Nichols from Colorado. At the end of lap one it would be Martens, Nichols, Oklahoma’s Kaden Taylor, Wichita’s JD Johnson and Plainville’s Jed Werner rounding out the top five.

 

Ty Williams began his run to the front as he drove around Werner on lap seven and start to pressure Taylor moving past him on lap 7. Liberal’s Steven Richardson who lined up 10th moved into the number 6 spot on lap nine as Martens night came to an end one lap later as his mount lost power with Mag problems and coasted to a stop on the front straight bringing out the yellow.

 

Nichols inherited the lead on the restart and started putting distance between himself and Johnson with 9th starting Stu Snyder getting by Taylor for 5th on lap 12. A rim riding Nichols made a mistake one lap later and fell off the edge of turn two allowing Johnson and Williams by and relegating him to third. One lap later Johnson also fell off of turn two and tipped over bringing out the only red.  

 

On the restart it was Williams, Nichols, Richardson, Snyder and Taylor bringing the field to the green. Nichols started putting pressure on Williams as Zach Blurton wrestled his way by Taylor by lap 16 and Snyder moved by Richardson one lap later. Nichols made a last lap charge and got to Williams bumper coming off turn four but settled for runner up and his best finish of his short career as Snyder, Richardson and Blurton completed the top five. 24th starter and previous night feature winner, Darren Berry finished 6th , claiming the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger award. Colby feature winner Terry Richards 8th, Dodge City’s Keefe Hemel 9th and 23rd starter, Colorado’s Patrick Bourke rounding out the top 10. click here for the rest of the story

 

 
Darren Berry Shines in URSS Battle in North Platte
 
 
Nebraska’s Darren Berry bested a field of 28 cars Saturday night to earn 
himself the $1700 winners share at the Ron Williams/Dick Snoose Memorial at the
Lincoln Co. Raceway in North Platte NE.


Starting outside front row Berry outgunned pole sitter and Cousin Nate Berry to jump 
to the early lead. Lap one would complete with Darren, Nate, Oklahoma’s Jake Martens,
John Webster and Terry Richards rounding out the top. Martins made quick work of Nate
as he moved into the number 2 spot on lap2. 


Berry continued his torrid pace throughout the 25 lap feature as Martens had nothing
for him and at the checker it was Darren Berry, Martens, Nate Berry, Richards and 13th
starting Ty Williams rounding out the top five.  Click here for the rest of the results
 

Richards Wires URSS Field at Colby

Nebraska’s Terry Richards put in a dominating performance with a field of 31 cars as he led every lap of night 2 of the Summer Sizzler Week for the United Rebel Sprint Series at the Thomas County Speedway in Colby, KS.

Richards and Colorado’s Scott Rhoades brought the field to the green with Richards jumping out to the early lead followed by Rhoades, Mark Walinder, Darren Berry and Todd Plemons rounding out the top 5 after lap one. Oklahoma’s Jake Martens would wrestle his way past Plemons from his 7th starting position to move into the top 5 by lap 3 and then drove around Berry on lap 4 to take over 4th.

Quinter’s Zach Blurton, starting 9th, moved into the top 5 on lap 7 as Martens drove past Walinder for 3rd and continued his charge to the front, as Richards had built up a straightaway lead over 2nd running Rhoades.

Martens would continue his charge to the front as he moved past Rhoades for 2nd at the halfway mark and began to chase down Richards but fell short of reaching his back bumper as Richards would claim his first URSS feature victory in the 25 lap caution free event. Blurton would make a late race charge to claim 3rd, followed by Rhoades and Walinder to complete the top five.

Toby Chapman Wires Field at URSS-SSN Belleville Battle 

Nebraska’s Toby Chapman used his pole starting position to his advantage as he led every lap of the Battle at Belleville between the United Rebel Sprint Series vs the Sprint Series of Nebraska at the Belleville High Banks in Belleville KS to claim his first win with the United Rebel Sprint Series along with the first night of the URSS Summer Sizzler four race tour. 

Chapman and Blain Peterson would bring the field to the green with Chapman jumping to an early lead with Peterson, Zach Blurton, Chase Weiler and Stu Snyder rounding out the top 5 after lap one. Lap two saw the yellow come out when 12th starting Ty Williams made contact with the turn three guard rail damaging his car and sending him to the pits. 

On the ensuing restart the Tim Hilfiker would get sideways in turn two collecting Peterson and John Webster and bringing out the red flag. During the cleanup of cars, Williams would repair his mount and return to the back of the field along with Blurton as his right front tire lost air during the red relegating him also to the rear.

 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
