Selinsgrove, Bedford on deck; Pennsylvania welcomes Arctic Cat All Stars for final visit of 2017

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (September 13, 2017) - One final trip to the Keystone State stands ahead for Tony Stewart's Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. Comprised of two events at two different facilities, the final Central Pennsylvania invasion of the season will include visits to Selinsgrove Speedway and Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, September 16-17. The traveling band of winged warriors will race for a total winner's share equaling $13,000 during the two-day trek, $8,000 of it during Selinsgrove Speedway's season ending Jim Nace Memorial/National Open on Saturday.

Including their first visit in 1970, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions have made 15 prior appearances at Selinsgrove Speedway, each resulting in a different main event winner. Danny Dietrich, a two-time winner with the Series this season, is the most recent to visit Selinsgrove Speedway victory lane during Arctic Cat All Star competition, earning high honors on April 24, 2016.

After a one-night showdown at Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday, September 16, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will move southwest and enter action at the Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway in Bedford on Sunday, September 17. Unlike Selinsgrove, Bedford's history involving the Arctic Cat All Stars is fairly short, only hosting the regional travelers on five occasions since their debut in 2001. One trend that Selinsgrove and Bedford do share is a diverse win list; there has yet to be a repeat Arctic Cat All Star winner at the Bedford half-mile.

Moving closer and closer toward a record-tying sixth Series championship, Alvada, Ohio's Chad Kemenah will lead the Arctic Cat All Star charge into Central Pennsylvania. The three-time winner in 2017, one of which at Bedford Fairgrounds Speedway during the Series' first visit in late April, holds a 350-point cushion over Kunkletown, Pennsylvania's Ryan Smith. Smith, who owns one Arctic Cat All Star victory during competition in 2017, will enter the two-race stand in hopes to furthering his Central Pennsylvania momentum streak. Most recently, the "Kunkletown Kid" finished second during the 50th Annual Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway.

New Castle, Indiana's Caleb Armstrong, "Mad Max" Stambaugh, and recent $10,000 winner at Wayne County (OH) Speedway, Caleb Helms, currently find themselves third through fifth in the Arctic Cat All Star championship standings. For Stambaugh, following the Arctic Cat All Star trail full-time is a first-ever experience, now leading the EMi Rookie of the Year standings aboard the Ray Marshall Motorsports entry.

Selinsgrove Speedway officials will open pit gates at 4:00pm on Saturday, September 16. A mandatory meeting for all Arctic Cat All Star competitors will be hosted at 5:45pm, followed by hot laps at 6:30pm, sharp.

Foos earns 2nd Fremont 410 win; Reed claims 7th track title


Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos sliced his way through lapped traffic like a surgeon to claim his second 410 sprint win of the season at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Sept. 9 on Kistler Racing Products Night. It was the second win of the season at “The Track That Action Built” for the Fremont, Ohio native.

Monclova, Ohio’s Byron Reed came into the season championship night third in points, but a good qualifying effort, a heat race win and a fourth place feature finish propelled him to his 7th Fremont Speedway track championship.

The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature was worth the price of the ticket as Bobby Clark, Paul Weaver and Nate Dussel battled each other and lapped traffic the last five laps. A caution with three laps to go gave Clark a clear track and the Fremont, Ohio driver scored his first win of the season and the 35th of his career at Fremont Speedway. It comes after Clark took a nasty spill last weekend at WaynesfieldRacewayPark. Clark now sits 12th on the track’s all-time win list.

Lee Jacobs and Foos led the field to green for the 30 lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Jacobs gaining the advantage over Foos, Bryan Broughton, Travis Philo, Chris Andrews, Valenti and Reed. Foos took several looks to Jacob’s inside over the first hand full of laps with Philo driving into third on lap six. The leaders caught the back of the field on lap eight with Jacobs maintaining the lead over Foos, Philo, Andrews, Broughton, Reed, Broc Martin and Valenti.

Foos and Jacobs switched lines in turns three and four on lap 14 and Foos powered into the lead as they raced into very heavy lapped traffic. A caution at the half way point gave Jacobs a shot at regaining the lead but Foos was too strong on the restart. Andrews took third n lap 17 and started to close on Foos and Jacobs while Philo and Reed battled for fourth. With eight laps remaining Foos raced into very heavy lapped traffic and Jacobs and Andrews closed.

Jacobs took several looks to Foos’ inside while the leader was hung up behind a lapped car. Foos made some daring moves in traffic the last hand full of laps and drove to the win over Jacobs, Andres, Reed and Philo

Matt Foos and Jimmy McGrath paced the field for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main with Foos jumping into the lead at the drop of the green. Following a caution after a lap was scored, Foos again maintained the lead as Tyler Street jumped into second over McGrath, Clark, Joe Armbruster and 12th starting Weaver. Clark moved into third on lap three with Weaver taking fourth a circuit later. Street spun while running second on lap seven.

Clark powered under Foos for the lead on lap nine as Weaver applied pressure for the runner-up spot finally taking it on lap 14. Weaver methodically cut into Clark’s lead and as they raced into heavy lapped traffic with seven laps to go, took several looks to Clark’s outside for the lead. Weaver made a big bobble on the cushion in turns three and four with four laps to go, as Dussel dove to his inside with Clark in both of their sights. But, a caution with three laps to go gave Clark a clear track and he was able to drive to the win over Weaver, Dussel, John Ivy and Jamie Miller.
