Bill Frye Scores COMP Cams MSRA Win At Crawford County Speedway

Van Buren, AR (06/26/10) – One night after finishing in the second spot, Bill Frye from Greenbriar, Arkansas overcame Mother Nature and a solid field of competitors to power his #66 Rocket Chassis to his third COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model win on Saturday night at Crawford County Speedway in Van Buren, Arkansas.

With twenty-two competitors entered for battle, late evening showers almost saw the first ever COMP Cams MSRA event at the facility nixed before it ever got underway. However, the staff with the COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model tour and Crawford County Speedway worked diligently to get the track race ready, and after a delay, the event finally got underway.

It was Jeff Floyd from Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, who accumulated the most passing points in heat race action to earn the JFR Graphics Pole Position for the 40 lap, $2,000 to win feature. He was joined on the front row by Bill Frye. At the drop of the green flag, Frye would use the high line to assume control of the lead with Floyd, Johnny Virden, and Kyle Beard in pursuit.

With a heavy cushion as a result of the rain earlier in the evening most of the competitors opted to run the cushion in the feature, and they would chase Frye the entire 40 laps as he raced his way to the win in front of a large, enthusiastic crowd. The triumph was his third of the 2010 COMP Cams MSRA campaign.

Frye was followed across the finish line by Jeff Floyd, Kyle Beard, Johnny Virden, and Dewaine Hottinger.

Via his win, Bill Frye moved into the second position in the COMP Cams MSRA standings behind Kyle Beard. The victory also tied Frye with Kyle Beard as the winningest driver in the history of the COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model tour with seven wins.

Two time, COMP Cams MSRA Champion, Joey Mack, endured tough luck for the second straight night. In heat race action, Mack had an oil fire, but refused to pit as he shot smoke and fire out of his #97 Rocket for the last few laps of his heat race. In the feature, the oil leak returned soaking his tire, which caused him to push up the track and jump the cushion. He would rebound to a 7th place finish.
Heat races for the twenty-two car field were won by Bill Frye, Jeff Floyd, and Johnny Virden.

Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year contender, Brandon Smith was the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger after racing his way from his 14th starting position to an 8th place finish.

The Quartermaster Hard Luck Award went to Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year contender, Charlie Cole, who saw his night come to an early after he sustained damage in an early race incident.

The COMP Cams Top Performer was Bill Frye.

The COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model tour will take a one week break before returning to action with a double header on July 9th-10th. The tour will make its inaugural visit to Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, Louisiana on Friday, July 9th with a $2,000 to win/$300 to start, 30 lap event before moving on to 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Arkansas for a $2,000 to win/$400 to start, 40 lap program on Saturday, July 10th.

Bill Frye Fries Foes At 67 Speedway in COMP Cams MSRA Action

Texarkana, Arkansas (05/08/10) – Bill Frye survived a late race challenge as well as a rapidly deflating right rear tire to claim his second straight COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model win on Saturday night at 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Arkansas.

Jeff Floyd accumulated more passing points than any other driver in heat race action to earn the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier Award for the 40 lap feature event. He was joined on the front row for the feature by hometown favorite, Jon Mitchell.

Floyd took possession of the top spot as the feature got underway with Bill Frye and Jon Mitchell in close pursuit. Floyd would lead the first three circuits before Greenbrier native, Frye, slipped by on the 4th circuit to take over the top spot as Floyd and Mitchell hosted a spirited battle for the second position. 

Two and three wide racing was the rule throughout the field as drivers were making moves throughout the field with 13th starting Kyle Beard up to the seventh position by the race’s midway point. The first twenty-two laps would go caution free before Fort Worth, Texas driver, Bryan Sugg, rolled to a stop with mechanical woes.

With the caution bunching the field, the ensuing restart would see the field flare three wide with Bill Frye once again motoring away from the field with Floyd and Mitchell racing side-by-side for the second spot as Brandon Smith began to work the extreme high-side of the track to close in on the battle for second.

By lap 34, Beard moved past Brandon Smith for the fourth spot as he set his sights on the battle for the second position. The final caution of the event waved on lap 36 when Shane Harris rolled to a stop. Under the caution flag it began to become noticeable that Bill Frye’s right rear tire was starting to lose air. On the race’s final restart, Frye would find his hands full with a now ill-handling car due to the expiring tire. Floyd and Mitchell moved in on the leader, and the crowd would come to their feet as the trio waged war to the finish with Frye surviving to win by half a car length over Jon Mitchell, Jeff Floyd, Kyle Beard, and Brandon Smith.

Heat races for the twenty-three car field were won by Bill Frye, Jeff Floyd, Jon Mitchell, and Dewaine Hottinger. Terry Henson won the b-main.

Kyle Beard was the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger after advancing from his 13th starting spot to a 4th place finish.

The Quartermaster Hard Luck Award went to Stormy Derryberry. Derryberry’s night got off to a bad start as a caliper broke on his car, which in turn did extensive damage to his car, bringing his night to a disappointing, early end.

The COMP Cams Top Performer was Bill Frye.

The COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model tour will now take a break before returning to action on Friday, June 11th at Malden Speedway in Malden, Missouri with a $2,000 to win/$300 to start event. On Saturday, June 12th the action will shift to Northeast Arkansas Speedway in Harrisburg, Arkansas for a $2,000 to win/$400 to start program. For more information, please visit www.NEASpeedway.com, www.MaldenSpeedway.com, and www.MSRADirt.com .

Bill Frye Claims COMP Cams MSRA Checkers at USA Speedway

Sterlington, Louisiana (05/07/10) – Bill Frye picked up his first win of the year on Friday night at USA Speedway in Sterlington, Louisiana in front of a capacity crowd in the $2,000 to win, COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model sanctioned event.

A stellar field of 34 Super Late Models, representing seven states entered the event, and after winning his heat race from the fifth starting spot, Rob Litton was the JFR Graphics pole qualifier. He was flanked to his outside for the 30 lap event by Kevin Sitton from Baytown, Texas. At the onset of the feature Litton bolted to the lead with Sitton, Bill Frye, Cory Daugherty, and Clay Fisher in pursuit.

On the second circuit Frye and Fisher slipped by Sitton to take possession of the second and third positions respectfully. Frye would begin to apply pressure to Litton for the top spot, and would take over the lead exiting turn two on the seventh circuit. 

As Frye began to slip away from the field, Kyle Cummings moved up to the third spot by the ninth lap. The first caution of the event flew on lap 15 as Jeremy Glasgow was spun in turn four. At the time of the caution the top five running order consisted of Frye, Litton, Cummings, Jeff Floyd, and Clay Fisher.

On the restart Frye once again slipped away from the field as much of the field headed to the low side of the oval. Two laps later on the 17th circuit the caution would wave as Litton and Cummings got together exiting turn two. Both drivers would be able to continue, but were sent to the tail of the pack.

The next pair of attempts at a restart would see cautions negate the green flag. The third attempt to get the race back underway would be successful as Frye motored away from the field. Most of the field was content to hug the low line, but Kenny Merchant mounted a charge on the high side from deep in the field and would reach the third spot with a few laps remaining in the event. However, he would run out of time as Bill Frye went on to take the win over Joey Mack, Merchant, Jon Mitchell, and Kyle Beard.

Hot laps wreaked havoc for several teams as Billy Moyer Jr., Allen Tippen, and Shane Stephens all had mechanical woes that prevented them from starting their heat races. Moyer Jr. would unload a backup car and would go on to win his b-main from the 10th starting spot, while Stephens failed to transfer from his b-main, and Tippen would be a scratch for the night.

Heat races were won by Cory Daugherty, Jeff Floyd, Kevin Sitton, Bill Frye, and Rob Litton. The b-main events were topped by Billy Moyer Jr. and Dewaine Hottinger.

Joey Mack was the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger after advancing from his 12th starting spot to a 2nd place finish.

The Quartermaster Hard Luck Award went to Terry Henson. Henson was eligible for a provisional starting spot for the feature, but was unable to accept it due to mechanical woes.

The COMP Cams Top Performer was Bill Frye.

The COMP Cams MSRA Super Late Model tour will travel to 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Arkansas on Saturday, May 8th for a $2,000 to win/$400 to start, 40 lap event. For more information on the event, please visit www.Texarkana67Speedway.com .

Little Rock, Arkansas (1/10/09) - The O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model Series hosted its 2nd Annual Night of Champions on Saturday, January 10th, 2009 at Boston’s Restaurant and Sports Bar in Little Rock, Arkansas.

For the second year in a row, Jeff Floyd from Walnut Ridge, Arkansas finished second in the O’Reilly MSRA point standings. Floyd announced his intent to win his first O’Reilly MSRA title in 2009, which will mark his 25th year of racing. Floyd was also the lucky winner in the drawing for off a GRT Chassis. However, in a true representation of sportsmanship, Jeff presented fellow racer, Randy Mitchell with the award. Joe Garrison from GRT Race Cars, who has been a supporter of the series from the beginning, made the gift even more special, when he announced that the certificate would be good for a complete, brand new GRT.

Jon Kirby from Russellville, Arkansas won the 2008 O’Reilly MSRA Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year honor. He also finished 3rd in the final O’Reilly MSRA point standings.

JOEY MACK REPEATS AS 2008 O'REILLY MSRA CHAMPION

Benton, Missouri based Joey Mack Racing captured their second consecutive O'Reilly MSRA series title. The race team picked up the championship, and remained the only points champion in the series two year history. Mack narrowly edged fellow series competitor Jeff Floyd, winning by 21 points, as Floyd challenged Mack for the second consecutive year until the last lap of the last feature.

Mack stated, "Although I didn't have the feature win success this year that I did last, we were extremely consistent and our package is real reliable. When you have guys there every week like Floyd, and guys running and winning multiple races like Wendell Wallace, Jack Sullivan, Kyle Beard, and Ray Moore, it makes picking up a feature win tough. We were in contention almost every night, the wins just didn't fall our way." Mack was correct in his statement of consistency, as he finished in the top 5 in over half of the O'Reilly MSRA races, and had a season- worst finish of 11th.

Considering Joey started the season coming off a back surgery, it makes his feat even more impressive. Series co-owner Cary Jones stated, "for the season opener at Little Rock, Joey told me that since he was coming off an injury, he might just turn a lap in the heat, take a provisional for the feature, and ride around and collect points. That lasted about thirty seconds. Before we knew it, he was up on the wheel riding around on a hooked up track, put the car on the pole, and then finished second in the feature. It just shows what a dedicated racer he is."

Mack is not only a dedicated racer, but dedicated to the O'Reilly MSRA. He and Jeff Floyd are the only two individuals to run every race in the series two year history. This has taken him east to Mississippi, west to Oklahoma, south near the Texas border at Texarkana, and to the north in his home state of Missouri. Mack stated the travel was worth the effort, adding, "the plan for the series is to try and get two nights of racing each weekend, either at the same track or close by. With diesel what it cost this year, I don't know if we could have raced a series any other way." Mack continued, "The two nights also let's you get out on the road with your family. My wife Carrie, daughter Laurel, and Mom and Dad are able to come and help out or support me quite a bit."

Series co-owner Chris Ellis is excited to have Joey represent MSRA. "When you think of late model racing in this part of the country, you may think of Moyer, Frye, or Wallace. But we feel like we are developing the next generation. When Joey started with us two years ago, he was still in his late twenties. Kyle Beard picked up the COMP Cams Challenge by winning four of our races this year, and he is only twenty-two. Billy Moyer, Jr., Jordan Jones, and Jeff Wells, Jr. all finished in the Top 10 in points and are all twenty years old or younger." Ellis continued, "Jon Kirby captured the Kuntz and Company Rookie of the Year, and him pairing up with Dewaine Hottinger has really accelerated his program. Joey is a great young champion, but has enough experience that he represents the series well."

Wendell Wallace Wins By A Nose in O’Reilly MSRA At PCR Harrisburg, Arkansas (9/12/0 – Night #1 of the 2nd Annual O’Reilly MSRA Dirt Track Championship was held last night at Poinsett County Raceway in Harrisburg, Arkansas with Wendell Wallace winning a thriller over Dane Dacus. The 2nd Annual O’Reilly MSRA Dirt Track Championship was originally scheduled to be a two day show with double heats on Friday night and consolation events and the a-main on Saturday night. However, with a threatening forecast for Saturday night courtesy of the remnants of Hurricane Ike, the O’Reilly MSRA staff and Poinsett County Raceway staff decided to modify the format. The revised format consisted of a complete show on Friday night, and a complete program on Saturday night as well. It was also determined that Friday night’s event would be the final point’s event with Saturday being an O’Reilly MSRA sanctioned, non-points event. Thirty-Two Super Late Models, representing five states signed in for the event. After advancing from his 6th starting position to take the win in his heat race, Dane Dacus earned the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier Award. Wendell Wallace started in the second position for the main event. The initial start in the feature would be waived off as several cars piled up on the inside row forcing a complete restart. The next attempt to get the race underway would be successful with Wallace bolting to the lead with Dacus in tow. Caution would fly again on lap two as Brian Ritchie rolled to a stop with a broken suspension assembly that was a product of the incident on the initial start. On the ensuing restart Wallace and Dacus began a battle for the top spot. The leaders would reach lapped traffic by lap 13 as things started to heat up throughout the field. Dacus would chase Wallace through traffic for the next 17 laps as the duo lapped up to the 13th place car. At the finish line Dacus made a bid at the lead but came up a few feet short as Wallace picked up the $2,000 payday, which was his second O’Reilly MSRA triumph of 2008. Jeff Floyd (started 12th), Joey Mack (locked up 2008 O’Reilly MSRA Championship), and Billy Moyer rounded out the top five. Four heats were held for the 32 car field. In heat race #1 Gary Beard rocketed to the lead early in the race before being sidelined with mechanical problems at the halfway point, ending his night. Michael Murphree inherited the lead and went on to win over Shane Stephens and seventh starting, Billy Moyer. The second heat race saw Billy Moyer Jr. take the win from the pole with third starting Jack Sullivan and Steve Rushin rounding out the top three. Heat race #3 would see third row starters, Joey Mack and Dane Dacus blasting their way to the front of the grid. Dacus would lead Mack and Jeff Floyd to the checkered flag. In heat race #4, third starting Wendell Wallace took the lead early in the race and won over fourth starting Billy Peden and Justin Asplin. Twin b-mains were held, and in the first last chance qualifier Kyle Beard took the win with Mike Bowers in the final transfer spot. Chris Jones won the second b-main with Jordan Jones earning the final transfer. Randy Mitchell and Jeff Sloan utilized O’Reilly MSRA provisionals for the 30 lap feature event. The 2nd Annual Midsouth Dirt Track Championship will conclude on Saturday night, September 13th with a complete $2,000 to win program for the O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models. A full compliment of local divisions will accompany the program each night. For more information, please visit www.PoinsettCountyRaceway.com . Notes: Friday night was the official final O’Reilly MSRA point’s event for the 2008 season, and with his fourth place finish, Joey Mack from Benton, Missouri earned his second straight O’Reilly MSRA Championship. Joey Mack also won the JFR Graphics Pole Award for the 2008 season after earning the most O’Reilly MSRA feature pole positions. Jeff Floyd from Walnut Ridge, Arkansas entered the night 2nd in O’Reilly MSRA standings, just 21 points out of first place. He would start 12th in the feature and drive an impressive race to a 3rd place finish, but his counterpart, Mack, would finish only one spot back in the 4th position, preventing Floyd from earning enough points to overtake the leader. Jeff Floyd earned the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for charging from his 12th starting position to a 3rd place finish. Brian Ritchie from Newport, Arkansas was the recipient of the Weld Racing Wheels Forge Ahead Award after a broken suspension part ended his night on lap one of the feature. Wendell Wallace from Batesville, Arkansas was the recipient of the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus. With the win he became only the fourth driver in 2008 to make it into victory lane more than once. With the accomplishment he joined Kyle Beard, Ray Moore, and Jack Sullivan as multi-time winners on the 2008 O’Reilly MSRA campaign. Kyle Beard from Trumann, Arkansas won the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus for the 2008 season after picking up more feature wins (three) than any other O’Reilly MSRA member. Beard finished 5th in the final O’Reilly MSRA standings. Jon Kirby from Russellville, Arkansas won the 2008 O’Reilly MSRA Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year honor. He also finished 3rd in the final O’Reilly MSRA point standings. Billy Moyer Jr. from Batesville, Arkansas finished 4th in the final O’Reilly MSRA point standings. Poinsett County Raceway co-owner, Terry Butler, did a fantastic job of prepping the mile oval for Friday’s event as the track was racy top to bottom with some four wide racing throughout the night.

Little Rock, Arkansas (9/06/08) – On Saturday night, the O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models tour went head-to-head with the Allstate DLRA Super Late Model tour at Tri State Speedway in Pocola, Oklahoma, and when the checkered flag fell on the feature event, Terry Phillips stood in victory lane as the 10th different winner on the O’Reilly MSRA tour in 2008.

The event marked the first and only event of the 2008 season for the O’Reilly MSRA tour at Tri State Speedway, and twenty-one of the areas top drivers signed in for the event.  After accumulating the most passing points in heat race action, Dewaine Hottinger from Russellville, Arkansas earned the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier Award for the 35 lap feature event.  Outside front row starter, Terry Phillips took the lead at the drop of the green flag and would lead the early laps before third starter, Jeremy Payne, caught the leader by the race’s mid stages.  The duo would battle for the lead with Payne taking control of the lead late in the race.  On a late race restart Payne would take the white flag and look to be on his way to his first O’Reilly MSRA win of the year, but the Springfield, Missouri driver would check up allowing Phillips, Vaught, and Stovall to slip by as the field headed to the checkered flag. 

Terry Phillips went on to pick up the win over Will Vaught, Jesse Stovall, Jeremy Payne, and Kyle Beard rounding out the top five. 

Notes:

Beard’s top five finish was impressive as he had to start 21st on the grid after losing an engine in heat race action.  For his efforts, the Truman, Arkansas’ native was awarded the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing 16 positions.

2008 O’Reilly MSRA Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year, Jon Kirby, received the Weld Wheels Hard Luck Award after losing a radiator one lap into the feature event. 

Terry Phillips received the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus.

Heat races were won by Jeremy Pane, Dewaine Hottinger, and Terry Phillips.

With one event remaining in the 2008 season, Joey Mack holds a 21 point advantage over second place Jeff Floyd.

Little Rock, Arkansas (8/30/08) – The O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models made their second visit of 2008 to I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Arkansas, and Jeff Floyd took advantage of the event to pick up his first win of 2008.

Twenty Super Late Models, representing five states, signed in for the $2,000 to win/$400 to start event.  After advancing four positions in his heat race, Kyle Beard earned the most passing points and the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier Award for the feature event.  He was flanked to his outside by Jeff Floyd, and at the drop of the green Beard rocketed to the top spot with Floyd and Joey Mack in pursuit.  Beard would build a solid lead by lap seven, when disaster struck for the Trumann, Arkansas native, when he looped his mount, forcing him to go to the back of the pack.

With Beard on the tail of the field, Floyd assumed control of the top spot with Joey Mack in tow.  Floyd would lead the next ten laps before Mack used a maneuver in lapped traffic to overtake Floyd for the top spot on lap 19.  However, one lap later, Floyd and Mack would make contact as they battled through lapped traffic with both drivers temporarily losing control.  Both would resume control with Floyd in the lead and Mack in second.  Jeff Floyd went on to lead the last ten laps of the event to pick up his first win of 2008.  Jon Mitchell, Kyle Beard (who recovered from his lap seven spin), and Ronnie Adams rounded out the top five.

With his win Floyd picked up four points on Joey Mack in the point standings with two events remaining.  Mack currently holds a 32 point lead over Floyd. 
Jon Kirby earned the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing from his 18th starting position to an 8th place finish.  In addition with his 8th place finish, Kirby has locked up the Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year Award.  Jeff Sloan is currently second in the Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year standings, but has been mathematically eliminated.  Kirby continues to maintain the third position in the point’s standings.

Clay Fisher received the Weld Racing Wheels Forge Ahead Award after seeing a strong run come to an end with a broken rocker arm stud.
Heat races were won by Jeff Floyd, Jon Mitchell, and Charlie Cole.

Notes:
Robert Lovette, who usually only competes with the O’Reilly MSRA tour at Poinsett County Raceway made the trip to I-30 Speedway, and picked up a top ten finish.

With his 7th place finish Billy Moyer Jr. continues to hold possession of the fourth position in the point standings with Kyle Beard holding control of the fifth spot in the current rankings.

Jeff Floyd also received a $500 gift certificate toward the purchase of a 2009 GRT Race Car for being the highest finishing GRT.

Jeff Floyd’s teammate, Jordan Jones, was advancing through the field before a broken shock ended his night.

With the win, Jeff Floyd became the 9th different winner on the O’Reilly MSRA tour in 2008.

The O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model Series will return to action next Saturday night, September 6th at Tri State Speedway in Pocola, Oklahoma with a $2,000 to win/$400 to start event.  The program will be co-sanctioned by the Allstate DLRA Late Model Series.  For more information on the event, please visit www.Tri-StateSpeedway.com .

Kyle Beard Dominates O’Reilly MSRA at Poinsett County Raceway

Harrisburg, Arkansas (8/9/08) – After bad luck on Friday night, Kyle Beard bounced back in a big way on Saturday night at Poinsett County Raceway in Harrisburg, Arkansas by picking up the win in the $2,000 to win event.

Twenty-eight Super Late Models, representing five states, signed in for the event as the largest crowd of the year jammed into the grandstand at Poinsett County Raceway.  Friday night’s feature winner at Malden Speedway, Jesse Stovall, once again put on a masterful driving display in heat race action and earned the JFR Graphics pole position for the 40 lap feature event.  Billy Moyer Jr. from Batesville, Arkansas earned the outside front row starting position for the main event. 

With inclement weather in the area and sprinkles starting to fall, the capacity crowd came to its feet as the field took the green flag with Stovall bolting to the lead with Dewaine Hottinger, Billy Moyer Jr., Joey Mack, and Gary Beard in tow.  As Stovall built a four car length advantage over the field by lap two, sixth starting, Kyle Beard, was on the move racing around his Dad, Gary, for the fifth position.  Lap three would see Beard blasting the high side of the track to rocket past Moyer Jr. and Hottinger to move into the second spot on the third circuit, and ultimately driving past Stovall on the high side on lap four to take over the top spot.

The caution flag flew on lap 6 for Randy Mitchell, who had rolled to a stop.  At the time of the caution, the top five running order consisted of Kyle Beard, Jesse Stovall, Billy Moyer Jr., Dewaine Hottinger, and 7th starting, Joey Mack.  On the ensuing restart, Beard drove away from the field as Stovall, Moyer Jr., and Hottinger flared three wide for the top spot exiting turn two.  Stovall would take sole possession of the third position back as the trio navigated the backstretch.

By lap eight, Joey Mack and Billy Moyer Jr. began to battle side by side for the 3rd spot as Steve Rushin joined the fray.  Mack would ultimately take the third position with Moyer Jr. in pursuit.  Lap 20 found the leaders in lapped traffic and on the 23rd circuit, Mack raced past Stovall for the second position.  Disaster struck for Stovall two hours later as contact with the lapped car of Randy Mitchell brought Stovall’s night to an end.

As the field lined up for the final restart of the night, the top five running order consisted of Kyle Beard, Mack, Moyer Jr., Jon Kirby (who started 13th), and Steve Rushin.  On the restart, Kirby blasted from his fourth position to the second spot with Mack driving back around him two laps later for the runner up spot.  As the laps wound down in the feature, the leaders once again caught lapped traffic, and this allowed Mack to reduce Beard’s lead to a few car lengths by the time that the white flag waived.  Mack chased Beard down the backstretch and tried a move on the high side exiting turn four, but Beard used a strong run on the bottom to pick up the win.  Joey Mack, Jon Kirby, Billy Moyer Jr., and Jeff Floyd rounded out the top five.

The victory marked Beard’s third triumph on the tour in 2008, and puts him in sole possession of the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus Program.

The four heat races were won by Charlie Cole, Kyle Beard, Billy Moyer Jr. and Jessie Bialey.  The twin b-mains were topped by Shane Stepens and Jeff Moss.

Jon Kirby received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charge Award for advancing from his 13th starting position to a 3rd place finish.  Charlie Cole received the Weld Racing Wheels Forge Ahead Award after having to switch to a back-up car after he won his heat race due to mechanical woes.  Due to switching cars, Cole had to start at the back of the feature. Kyle Beard earned the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus.

The O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models will return to action with a $2,000 to win/$400 to start event on Saturday, August 30th at Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Stovall Rockets To First O’Reilly MSRA Win At Malden Speedway

Malden, Missouri (8/8/08) – In his previous outings in O’Reilly MSRA action, Branson, Missouri driver, Jesse Stovall, had registered several strong runs, but had fallen just short of recording a tour win.  On Friday night at Malden Speedway in Malden, Missouri, Stovall put the past behind him, and won the $2,000 top prize in the 30 lap, O’Reilly MSRA event.

Thirty-three Super Late Models, which set a record for the most Super Late Models ever entered into a single event at Malden Speedway, signed in for battle as the O’Reilly MSRA tour made its debut at the southeast Missouri, clay oval.  After starting sixth in his heat race, Jesse Stovall rocketed to the win and via passing points earned the JFR Graphics Pole Award for the 30 lap, feature event.  Jordan Jones from Beebe, Arkansas started in the second position, and at the drop of the green flag, Jones shot to the lead with Stovall, Scott Tracer, Kyle Beard, and Jeff Wells Jr. in tow.  Jones and Stovall would battle side by side for the top spot for the next few laps as Kyle Beard drove by Scott Tracer for the third position exiting turn four on the second circuit.

The first caution flag of the event would fly on lap four as Jeff Wells Jr. spun in turn four.  The top five running order at the time of the caution consisted of Jordan Jones, Stovall, Kyle Beard, Scott Tracer, and Steve Rushin.  On the ensuing restart, mayhem would ensue at the rear of the field with Jessie Bailey, Dane Dacus, Enik Sanders, and Gary Beard piling up in the exit of turn four.  Everyone except for Enik Sanders would rejoin the back of the pack for the restart.

The next attempt to get the race underway would see more difficulties, as seventh and eighth running, Billy Moyer Jr. and Jeff Floyd made contact resulting in another multi-car melee in turn two.  All drivers would once again be able to continue with Moyer heading pitside for fresh rubber and rejoining the tail of the field before green flag conditions could resume.  The third attempt at a restart would be the charm as the event got back underway with a three wide battle for the top spot between Jones, Stovall, and Beard.  Jones would inch ahead to the lead once again with Beard advancing to the second position and Stovall slipping to third. 

By lap six, 15th starting, Joey Mack had advanced to the sixth position and was challenging Floyd for the fifth spot.  The race would continue to endure an extended green flag run with battles throughout the field including Stovall moving past Beard to reclaim the second spot on lap 15, as he once again set his sights on Jordan Jones.  Lap 18, would find Stovall motoring past Jones for the lead as the duo exited turn four.

With Stovall back at the point, Jones and Beard battled for the second spot, until lap 19 when contact between the two drivers sent both cars off of turns one and two.  Both drivers were able to rejoin the back of the field.  With the second and third place runners sent to the back, there was a shake-up in the top five running order with Stovall, Floyd, Mack, Jessie Bailey, and Jon Kirby assuming the top five spots as the field prepared to return to green flag action.

The green flag waved for the final time on the lap 19 restart with Stovall once again driving away from the field.  Floyd and Mack hosted a spirited battle for the second position before Floyd began to fade on lap 25 with a left rear tire that was beginning to lose air.  Jon Kirby would drive past Bailey, Mack, and Floyd over the next few laps to advance to the second position, but he would not be able to catch the leader, Stovall. 

Jesse Stovall would lead the final laps to take the win over Jon Kirby, Joey Mack, Jessie Bailey, and Jeff Floyd. 

The five heat races were won by Jesse Stovall, Jordan Jones, Kyle Beard, Jeff Wells Jr., and Steve Rushin.  The twin b-mains were topped by Joey Mack and Jessie Bailey with Dewaine Hottinger and Randy Mitchell utilizing O’Reilly MSRA provisionals.

Joey Mack received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charge Award for advancing from his 15th starting position to a 3rd place finish.  Jordan Jones received the Weld Racing Wheels Forge Ahead Award after leading the first eighteen laps of the event, only to be involved in an incident that sent him to the back of the pack and then later have a motor expire. Jesse Stovall earned the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus.

Locust Grove, Arkansas (7/19/08 ) – Jack Sullivan from Greenbriar, Arkansas proved that Friday night’s win in O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model action was no fluke as he charged from the 5th position to pick up his second straight feature win on Saturday night at Batesville Motor Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas.

Thirty-four Super Late Models, representing six states, signed in for night #2 of the O’Reilly MSRA vs. Allstate DLRA Super Late Model Challenge at Mooney Starr’s immaculately groomed Batesville Motor Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas. After accumulating the most points in heat race action, Wendell Wallace earned the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier award behind the wheel of his #88 GRT/Gaerte Racing Engines entry. Wallace would assume the lead early in the event with 5th starting Jack Sullivan charging into the 2nd position in the early stages.

Sullivan would stalk Wallace, and would ultimately take advantage of lapped traffic to drive around Wallace for the lead. Wallace would begin to strongly pressure Sullivan for the top spot, however, as the race progressed Sullivan’s car began to handle better and better allowing him to stretch his advantage. The only caution of the event would fly on lap 16 of the 35 lap affair with 19 cars still on the lead lap.

With Sullivan and Wallace occupying the top two spots, Bill Frye assumed the third position for much of the event before being passed by Jesse Stovall late in the race. Stovall would make up considerable ground on Wallace for the second position, but was unable to make the pass.
Sullivan went on to take the $3,000 top prize. Sullivan has won the past three O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model events that he has entered, and is the only three time winner on the tour in the 2008 season. Rounding out the top five were Wendell Wallace, Jesse Stovall, Bill Frye, and Duke Whiseant.

The race within the race involved the top two in the point standings, Joey Mack and Jeff Floyd. The pair would stage a race long duel before Floyd picked up a 7th place finish with Mack finishing in 10th. Via their finishes, Floyd trims Mack’s points lead to a mere 27 points.

In heat race action it was Wendell Wallace and Jeff Floyd charging from their 4th and 5th starting spots to finish in first and second, respectively, with Patrick Johnson in third in heat race #1.

Heat race #2 would see Chris Jones motor away from the field from his pole starting positions with his teammate, Steve Rushin in second, and Jeff Sloan in third.

In heat race #3, Duke Whiseant from Texarkana, Texas drove from his second starting position to pick up the win over Justin Wells, and Jesse Stovall.

Heat race #4 would see a horrific wreck on lap one that resulted in heavy damage to Shane Diamant and Dane Dacus. Frye would go on to win the race over Jack Sullivan and Tony Jackson Jr.

In b-main #1 action, Tony Jackson Jr. and Stacey Taylor claimed the transfer spots. Kyle Beard was battling for a transfer spot, when he lost a wheel. He was forced to use an O’Reilly MSRA provisional for the feature.
In b-main #2 action, the Father and Son combo of Ken Essary and Leslie Essary swept the transfer spots.

O’Reilly MSRA provisionals for the feature event were Jon Kirby and Kyle Beard with the Allstate DLRA tour granting provisionals to Dustin Mooneyham and Patrick Johnson.

The Weld Wheels Hard Luck Award went to Dewaine Hottinger. Hottinger had mechanical difficulties in his heat race and charged from the back of a b-main only to fall a few spots short of a transfer.

The Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger was Stacey Taylor, who advanced from his 19th starting position to a 9th place finish.
Jack Sullivan was the recipient of the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus.
The O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model Series would like to thank Batesville Motor Speedway and Mooney Starr for preparing a top notch racing surface each night. With the same tire rule in effect as will be run at the upcoming COMP Cams Topless 100, many of the teams were able to do some testing for the event.

The O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models return to action next Sunday, July 27th at Monett Speedway in Monett, Missouri as they once again square off in a challenge event against the Allstate DLRA Super Late Models in a $2,000 to win/$450 to start clash.

Locust Grove, Arkansas (7/18/08 ) – With 33 Super Late Models on hand, including several national and regional stars, Jack Sullivan from Greenbriar, Arkansas put on a dominating driving display to win Friday night’s O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model Series event at Batesville Motor Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas.

With a great field of cars, a good crowd, and Nextel Nascar Superstar, Mark Martin on hand to spectate, Mother Nature finally smiled upon Batesville Motor Speedway, and a great event was held. After accumulating the most points in heat race action, Jack Sullivan earned the JFR Graphics pole position for the 35 lap feature event. Justin Wells from Aurora, Missouri charged from the 8th starting position to a 2nd place finish in his heat race, which earned him the outside front row starting spot for the feature.

As the green flag waved, Sullivan assumed command of the point with third and fourth starters, Jeff Floyd and Jesse Stovall working their way past Wells for the second and third positions respectively early in the event. With side-by-side battles throughout the pack, including Floyd and Stovall’s war for the second spot, Sullivan slowly and methodically began to motor away from the field. Stovall’s run at the front, however, would come to an abrupt end when he got into the wall just past the race’s mid-point, ending his night. Fifth running, Kyle Beard, would also run into difficulties as he got turned around, while running in the 5th spot and trying to maneuver lapped traffic. Beard would rejoin the back of the pack and began a strong charge back to the front.

The race would endure several long green flags run before being slowed for the final time on lap 26 for a caution. At the time of the caution, Sullivan, Floyd, Wendell Wallace, and Bill Frye made up the top four positions in the running order. On the ensuing restart, Sullivan would once again begin to drive away from the field as Floyd’s handling started to go away. Wallace and Frye would race their way past Floyd in the closing laps, but nobody would have anything for Sullivan, who would go on to pick the $2,000 win, which was his second of the season in O’Reilly MSRA action. Wendell Wallace, Bill Frye, Duke Whiseant, and Jeff Floyd would round out the top five finishers.

The win was bitter sweet for Sullivan, who hurt the motor in his #18 Super Late Model on the white flag lap, and was putting in the back up motor after the races last night in preparation for Saturday night’s event. Point’s leader, Joey Mack picked off a few cars in the closing laps to rally from the 10th position to a 6th place finish. Kyle Beard came back from his early race mishap to score an 8th place finish. Stacey Taylor earned the Weld Wheels Hard Luck Award after his steering locked up early in the event, resulting in him being the first car out of the event. Sullivan was the recipient of the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus and Dewaine Hottinger received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger award for advancing from the 20th starting position to a 9th place finish.

The action continues tonight at Batesville Motor Speedway as the O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models and the Allstate DLRA Super Late Models square off in a $3,000 to win/$450 to start clash. For more information, please visit www.BatesvilleMotorSpeedway.net .

Nashville, Arkansas (7/12/08) – On Saturday night, the O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models invaded Arkansas Motor Speedway in Nashville, Arkansas, and the packed house was once again treated to a great show.

With 20 Super Late Models, representing five states, signed in to do battle with the O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Model Series, the fans flocked to Arkansas Motor Speedway.  With anticipation of the great night of racing on tap, many fans got an early start to their evening by meeting several of the Super Late Model drivers, who signed autographs at the O’Reilly MSRA Souvenir Trailer Presented By GRT Race Cars.  Among the drivers on hand for the autograph session, were Joey Mack, Jeff Floyd, Billy Moyer Jr., Jeff Wells Jr., Kyle Beard, and Jordan Jones.

Heat race action got underway with Friday night’s feature winner, Kyle Beard, leading the list of winners, which included Jordan Jones, and Gary Scott Christian, who was competing at his home track.

After charging from his 7th starting spot to a 2nd place finish in his heat race, current O’Reilly MSRA point’s leader, Joey Mack from Benton, Missouri, accumulated the most passing points and earned the JFR Graphics Pole.  Gary Scott Christian from Broken Bow, Oklahoma started outside of row one for the 40 lap, $2,000 to win event. 

At the drop of the green flag, Joey Mack bolted to the lead with third starting, Kyle Beard, advancing to second with Gary Scott Christian in third.  Mack would maintain the top spot as Beard and 7th starting Jeff Floyd began to battle for the second position.  Caution would fly around lap 15, bunching the field back together.  On the ensuing restart, Floyd would take advantage of the double file restart to take over the second position, as Beard fell back to the 3rd spot.  A few laps later, Floyd would overtake Mack for the lead.  However, the caution flag would fly, which would negate the pass.

As the field once again lined up for the double file restart, Beard used a power move around the outside line to race past Floyd and Mack to take over the top spot.  Once out front, Kyle Beard built a comfortable lead with Floyd racing past Mack to take over the second spot.  Late in the race, Floyd would try to mount a charge on the high-side, but Beard would hold on to take the $2,000 win over Jeff Floyd, Joey Mack, Jon Mitchell, and Stacey Taylor.  Positions sixth through tenth consisted of Billy Moyer Jr., Kenny Merchant, John Kirby, Keith Craft, and Jeff Moss.

Jeff Floyd claimed the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award for advancing from his 7th starting position to a 2nd place finish. 

The Weld Forge Ahead Hard Luck Award went to Randy Mitchell, who battled fuel delivery problems all weekend, and had to make an early exodus from the track for the second night in a row.

Beebe, Arkansas (7/11/08) – The O’Reilly MSRA Super Late Models hosted their seventh event of the 2008 campaign on Friday night at Poinsett County Raceway in Harrisburg, Arkansas, and when the dust settled on the 30 lap event, it was Kyle Beard claiming the $2,000 payday, and becoming the sixth different winner on the tour in 2008.

Twenty-Seven Super Late Models, representing five states, signed in to do battle around the mile, red clay oval.  Via heat race action, it was Trumann, Arkansas’ driver, Kyle Beard, who accumulated the most passing points and earned the JFR Graphics Pole for the feature event.  On the front row, Beard was flanked to his outside by Jeff Floyd from Walnut Ridge, Arkansas.  The front row paced the field for the 30 lap affair as fireworks erupted in the sky and the large crowd came to their feet to salute the starting grid. 

At the drop of the green, Beard bolted to the lead with Floyd, Kenny Merchant, and Jeff Wells Jr. in pursuit. During the early stages of the event, the track lended itself to two and three-wide racing throughout the pack while Beard motored away at the front of the field.  By lap 10, Beard had stretched his lead to almost a three car advantage as Floyd, Merchant, Wells Jr., and Dane Dacus waged an epic battle for the second spot.  Dacus would ultimately charge to the second spot by lap 20 and set his sights on the leader.  However, Dacus would not be able to catch the leader, as Kyle Beard led flag to flag in the 30 lap, caution-free event to pick up his first O’Reilly MSRA triumph of the 2008 season.  Dane Dacus, Jeff Floyd, Jeff Wells Jr., and Kenny Merchant rounded out the top five.

Via Floyd’s strong finish and he was able to make up some ground in the 2008 O’Reilly MSRA point’s chase against current leader, Joey Mack, who finished in the 10th position. Mack received the Larry Shaw Hard Charger Award for charging from 17th to a 10th place finish.  The Weldge Forge Ahead Hard Luck Award went to 2008 Kuntz & Co. Rookie of the Year Contender, Jeff Sloan, who broke early, ending his night.  Kyle Beard picked up the COMP Cams Winner’s Circle Bonus for winning the feature event.

On Saturday, July 12th, the action shifts to Arkansas Motor Speedway in Nashville, Arkansas for a $2,000 to win/$400 to start, 40 lap event. The O’Reilly MSRA visited AMS in mid-May with Jack Sullivan from Greenbriar, Arkansas picking up the big payday.

November 2, 2007

(BENTON, MISSOURI) Joey Mack and his #97m team recently wrapped up their version of the 2007 racing season. The Benton, Missouri based Dirt Late Model team had a very successful year, which was highlighted by capturing the inaugural MidSouth Racing Association (MSRA) Championship. In the sixteen MSRA events held in '07, Joey was extremely consistent, as he racked up two victories, twelve Top Five finishes, and thirteen Top Ten performances. Joey finished ahead of Jeff Floyd, Dusty Johnston, Billy Moyer, Jr., and Jordan Jones in the final series point standings, which will net him $5,000 and a plethora of contingency awards at the Awards Banquet on November 30.

In all, Joey entered twenty-five Dirt Late Model events during his 2007 campaign. He reached victory lane on two occasions (both in MSRA competition), while accumulating thirteen Top Five efforts, and sixteen Top Ten finishes. Joey's wins were both worth $2,000 and occurred on August 11 at the Tri-State (OK) Speedway and August 25 at the Southwest Arkansas Speedway. You can view all of Joey's results for 2007 online at www.joeymack.com.

"We had a great season and I have to thank my family, crew, and all of our sponsors for their dedication and support," commented Mack this week via telephone. "It was awesome to win the inaugural MSRA point title and I am a huge proponent of their involvement in Dirt Late Model racing in our area. Their series is a perfect fit for us, as they run the right amount of races and schedule their events in a logical manner. Even though our season has just finished, I am already looking forward to what 2008 will bring in hopes of defending our MSRA Championship!"

Mack Racing, Inc. would like to thank all of their sponsors for their continued support and dedication. Those sponsors include: High's Gift Shop, Auto Zone, AMSOIL, Bollinger Auto, GRT Race Cars, Kuntz & Company, The Brake Man, Custom Graphics, Integra Shocks, and Braswell Carburetion.
