ASCoC and Ken Schrader to Headline Two Big Nights of Racing
By: Anita Soltis - May 20, 2015
(Plymouth, IN)  The Memorial Day weekend is set to be the biggest weekend of racing in the history of Plymouth Speedway.
A wealth of experienced dirt track drivers in the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) invade the Playground of Power for the first time in the Earl Gaerte Classic on Friday night. Twenty-time World of Outlaw Champion Steve Kinser will wheel his 410 Winged Sprint around the dirt oval along with Dale Blaney, James McFadden, Rico Abreu, Byron Reed, Danny Holtgraver, Cap Henry, Greg Wilson, Tim Shaffer, and more.  Dale Blaney currently leads the points in the series.
The ASCoC is the oldest traveling sprint car organization.  The drivers travel in the Midwest region to compete in events that span over an eight-month schedule.
In addition to this all-star lineup, the local talent in the Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprint Division will take to the track in the Earl Gaerte Classic.  Jason Montel currently leads the drivers in points while Nick Yoder and Justin Bell are tied for the second position in the standings.  A larger purse is up for grabs in Friday’s race.  The first place finisher will receive $500 while the second place winner will receive $300, and third place will get $200.
Those attending the race Friday night can make some new friends as a bus full of fans from Fremont Speedway in Ohio will enjoy the big night of racing.
An autograph session is set for Friday from 4:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. ET at the track.
The gates open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. ET.
Come back to Plymouth Speedway on Saturday night to watch Ken Schrader in a Swan Lake Resort UMP Modified.  See if Schrader can get around last year’s Modifieds track champion Jamie Lomax and 2013 champion Frank Marshall.  A full lineup of racing is scheduled: Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds, Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints, WTCA Super Streets, Walmart Thunder Stocks, and Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks.  Gates open at 4 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m. ET.
SODS Dazzle at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis - May 16, 2015
(Plymouth, IN)  It was a record setting night Saturday at Plymouth Speedway with the largest car count since the track turned to dirt.  The drivers didn’t disappoint as six features graced the new competitive surface.
The Sprints on Dirt Series (SODS) appeared for the first time this season with a dominant Jared Horstman taking charge early in the feature.  He was able to pass Ryan Ruhl who had a bobble coming out of the fourth turn on lap 3.  Meanwhile, Ruhl and Dustin Daggett battled for second place.  Lapped traffic helped close the gap for a charging Daggett, but he couldn’t make the pass before the end of the feature.  Ruhl was able to claim the second podium spot while Daggett was third.
Two winged sprints rolled during the course of the race, but both drivers, Chase Ridenour and Brad Lamberson, were fine.
Brad Nichols won his first Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints feature of the season after getting the lead from pole-sitter Ryan Ball.  The two would stay in that order for the rest of the contest.   Justin Bell was able to make some moves in the time-shortened feature.  He moved up from sixth to third in just 10 laps to race into the final podium spot.
The WTCA Super Streets saw plenty of action in the third feature of the evening.  Calvin Peek, Jr. wasted no time in finding the top of the running order and proved to be the one to beat.  Mike Garver was door-to-door with Peek on lap five, but couldn’t make the pass before a caution came out on the track.  On the restart, David Short closed in on Garver for second who started losing track position.  Short got the spot and then Roger Duszynski went after Garver.  Duszynski got the third place position, but Garver didn’t give up easily.  Garver got right up to the bumper of Duszynski’s No. 44, but couldn’t get by him.  Short made a late race attempt for the lead and almost beat Peek.  The margin of victory was .05 seconds. Peek won the feature while Short came in second and Duszynski finished third.
Todd Sherman dominated the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds race.  He made the quick pass on pole-sitter Zeke McKenzie and stayed out front in the 20-lap feature.  McKenzie held the second position until a mechanical failure would take him out of the race on lap five.  Frank Marshall and Dillon Nusbaum battled for the second position throughout most of the race and were side-by-side for much of the feature.  The two swapped between second and third, but Nusbaum edged out Marshall at the finish line.  Sherman won his second consecutive race at the Playground of Power while Nusbaum and Marshall completed the podium.
John Rhoads came into the Walmart Thunder Stock feature undefeated.  He began on the outside pole, and became the first place car after pole-sitter Trenton Vogts spun out of turn four on the first lap.  Rhoads, Bryan Banta, Danny Dykhuizen were spread out for the first half of the race until a caution on lap 11.  In the meantime, Jim Henson worked his way up from 12th position to battle for the third spot.  He began working on Dykhuizen for the position on lap 15.  It wasn’t until Dykhuizen had an issue when Henson grabbed the third position on the last lap.  Dykhuizen finished eighth.  John Rhoads remains undefeated while Bryan Banta took home second place and Jim Henson claimed third.
Joshua Lank worked four laps to get the lead from Loren Swanson in the Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks feature and ran away from the field.  Once Lank took the lead,  Swanson, Trent Kirby and Richard Lorff went three-wide for the second position.  Trent couldn’t control his car and bumped both cars, but gathered it up and continued in the third position.  Swanson moved up to third on lap eight when Trent had trouble coming out of turn two on lap 8.  As the field came to the checkered flag, Joshua Lank enjoyed the lead in solitude, but Trent bumped Swanson out of the way in the middle of turns three and four.  Trent snuck into the second podium spot while Swanson came in third.
It’s a big Memorial Day weekend at Plymouth Speedway when 20-time World of Outlaw Champion Steve Kinser competes in the Earl Gaerte Classic on Friday, May 22 at 7 p.m. ET.  Join us for the event that will feature the All Stars 410 Winged Sprints and the Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints.  The purse for the 600 Open Sprints has grown so there should be plenty of drivers taking advantage of the opportunity.  On Saturday, May 23, Ken Schrader will join the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds class in a full night of racing.  The Warsaw Hall of Fame will enter the next class of inductees on Saturday night as well.
VIP, Media and Complimentary Passes are requested by emailing by Thursday of the race to: comps@plymouthspeedway.net.
NOTE: The VIP, media, and complimentary passes window closes at 7:30pm each race night. Anyone arriving after that time will be charged admission.

Series sets 2015 schedule by shifting Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway to June 3, canceling March 27 event at Merced (Calif.) Speedway
CONCORD, N.C. - Jan. 26, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will make its inaugural appearance at historic Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway this season. The addition of Plymouth, and two other schedule adjustments, sets the tour for 2015.
The Outlaws will invade Plymouth on Saturday, Oct. 17, with an event that will have an earlier than normal 5 p.m. start time. It will be the fourth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event in Indiana this season, joining races at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Lawrenceburg Speedway and Kokomo Speedway.
The track, 25 miles south of South Bend, Ind., is a 3/8-mile dirt oval that regularly features DIRTcar UMP Modifieds and sprint cars, among other events, throughout its season. In operation since 1952, the track is undergoing significant improvements for the upcoming year including a new racing surface and grandstands.
"The heartbeat of sprint car racing lies in Indiana and at places like Plymouth Speedway," said World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers. "We are thrilled to bring the The Greatest Show on Dirt to the historic track this season for the first time ever. It is sure to be an exciting event."
In other changes, the series will shift the Tuesday, June 2, event at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway to Wednesday, June 3, and the event initially scheduled for Friday, March 27 at Merced (Calif.) Speedway has been canceled.

Changes Underway at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis
While many drivers are working on their cars for the new season at the Playground of Power, we are making several improvements to the track this off-season.
It started with the installation of new clay. The surface was tested and the analysis indicated that the new surface will provide more grip and more grooves of racing. A steeper banking was also created. More clay will be delivered soon, weather permitting.
Concrete blocks were brought in to build up the walls on the outer part of the track which will be safer for drivers and fans. In another safety move, a new exit was designed to allow cars to exit the track in a more efficient manner.
New seats have been delivered to the speedway which will offer a more comfortable viewing experience for the fans. Additional improvements are also planned.
The 2015 season will feature the All Stars 410 Sprints for the Earl Gaerte Classic, Dirt Late Models, USAC National Midgets in May, a Mod Squad race in June, Open Wheel Wednesday in June and the Sprints on Dirt for two races including the Bob Newton Classic in August. The World Series of Dirt is set for Sept. 12 with 410 Non-Wing Sprints and a full lineup that will be offered all season including UMP Modifieds, Super Streets, Thunder Stocks, Cyber Stocks and Non-Wing 600 Sprints. More information on the newest addition to the lineup of features, Cyber Stocks, can be found on our website or call Mike Zielinski at (574) 532-7969.

Have a great holiday season!
