Ohio Valley Speedway and Skyline Summaries

Skyline Speedway

Dohm, Dohm, and Hartman Claim Opening Night Wins !
April 12 Results From Skyline Speedway

STEWART, OHIO-Another exciting night of racing took place at the history-laden Skyline Speedway season opener which saw second-generation driver and former Harvest 50 winner Zach Dohm take the AMRA Late Model win and Zanesville’s Jess Hartman claim the Octane Race Products Modifieds. Nick Dohm claimed the Fastrak Late Models, Gary Gould took the MOVE Modifieds, and Kyle Moyer the Outlaw 4-Cylinders, while Johnnie Hendrix took the Enduro’s This week will feature all-regular classes and a $150 Mini-Wedge special.

Exciting heat races set the stage for the night’s features. Dohm claimed his heat and led Berwanger at the start, as Tyler Carpenter worked his way to the front. Action in the pack was exciting for the large crowd on hand, which was greeted with the sight of a winter-ful of hard work and many improvements.

Dohm zoomed to the win over Carpenter, Berwanger, Rick Williams, and Freddie Carpenter, while heats went to Nick Dohm and Jeremy Berwanger, who is running Late Model this season.

The Octane Modifieds had a full field of hot iron on hand. The best of the best turned out for what proved to be a good feature. Hartman got the jump over J.P. Roberts and raced on to the win. Although Hartman breezed much of the way, battles for position trickled down to the back of the pack. Holcomb had a good run going, but looped it, then made a good recovery. Heats went to Hartman, J.P. Roberts, and Matt Holcomb. Rounding out the top ten were Jess Hartman, Colt Maxwell, J.P. Roberts, Casey Fritz, and Frankie Roush.

Also, both Midway and Skyline will be hosting a double-header weekend for racing and an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. One of the eggs will contain a $20 at each track for some lucky child. The race will mark the season opener for Midway Speedway. Skyline will give away a bicycle each and have both a Miss and Mr. Skyline Speedway crowned each week to involve the kids.

Ohio Valley Speedway

OHIO VALLEY SPEEDWAY COMPLETES 10TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON-OPENER

LUBECK, WEST VIRGINIA- Awesome spring weather greeted race teams and fans to the 2014 season opener at the Ohio Valley Speedway; this season marks the 10th anniversary of the current speedway ownership where Robbie Evans, Mineral Wells, WV claimed the Octane AMRA main and Kenna, WV driver Travis Brookover claimed the AMRA Late Model main. Several changes have been made as far as operations are concerned, including the introduction of the transponder scoring system and the return of weekly qualifying for all classes.

A total of 21 AMRA Super Late Models were in attendance; however, mechanical problems sidelined four drivers before feature-time. Fast-qualifier Ed Shuman and Travis Brookover led the field to the initial green, followed early by Kenney Newhouse, Cody Walker, and Jeremy Misel. Brookover and Shuman began their race-long door-to-door battle right then; they weren’t separated by more than a car-length until the late stages. The other three staged their duel for the 3-5 spots throughout the 25-lap event, with Newhouse battling handling issues to a fifth-place finish behind Brookover, Shuman, Misel, and the 22-year-old Walker. Defending track champ Andy Bond was driving the Curtis Towing 53c, which experienced fuel pick-up problems all evening, and was the second driver out. Shuman, Brookover, and Newhouse won the heats. Jimmy Rhodes and Austin Eddy both lost drive-shafts early and were unable to compete.

Even with only 13 AMRA Octane Race Products Modifieds on hand, this feature would provide the closest feature of the evening. Tom Sigler would take the initial lead and hold it for the first 16 laps in spite of constant pressure from Andy Bond, Vince Conrad, Robbie Evans, and Tyler Evans. Sigler and Bond were approaching one of the back-markers when this driver suddenly slid in front of the leaders causing both to spin down the front-stretch. Both were able to continue in their leader spots, but Sigler would suffer a broken “j-bar” during his spin, which resulted in his own spin one lap following the restart. Right before Sigler spun, R. Evans made the move of the race, getting the bottom inside both Sigler and Conrad and taking the lead at the flagstand; Sigler’s spin came immediately after. Evans would hold on for the season-opener win followed by Conrad, T. Evans, Blake Eddy, and Brandon Perkins. Attrition would play a big part in the outcome, as only these five of the 11 original starters made it through 20 laps. Both fast-qualifier Nick Corbitt and Jim Fordyce were unable to start the main. Bond and Sigler won the heats.

An early battle between heat-winners Dale Giffin and Aaron Ellis highlighted the Pure Stock main. However, Giffin lost his drive-shaft before halfway, leaving Glen Underwood to a futile chase of Ellis. Ellis had very little trouble outdistancing Underwood for his first-ever feature win at OVS. Underwood, Mike Mason, Scott Rooks, and Brad Richardson filled the top five. Giffin was fast qualifier.

The FWD 4-cylinder feature went nearly non-stop; Chris Lauer led the distance, with Seth Thaxton able to keep within 3-4 car lengths but unable to mound any serious challenge. The only caution appeared on the final lap when Jarrod Heise made head-on contact with the first-turn guardrail. Lauer and Thaxton led Bobby Collins, Sam Dickel, and Zach Heasley at the checkered. Lauer, Thaxton, and Dickel won the heats.

In the Mineral Wells Tire WRA mini-wedge feature, Nathan Drake used a lapped car to his advantage on lap 8 to take the lead; he went on to his first feature win in two seasons over Coleman Evans, Toby Wilson (from 12th), Lucas Crooks, and Grace Misel. Misel and Evans won the heats. Trophies were provided by Big A Muffler of Parkersburg.

April 18-19 will be the second AMRA sanctioned race for points; all drivers can purchase an AMRA License at the track Saturday for $75 or buy a temporary license at $25. Drivers in the Late Model and Modified Divisions must have either a full AMRA license or temporary license on April 12. Please get your paperwork done online to avoid the rush at the track.
