Saturday Night Special Heats up Plymouth Speedway
By:  Anita Goodan - June 25, 2016
(Plymouth, IN)  It was a rather hot Saturday afternoon and the racing was just that much hotter as four classes of drivers took to the dirt surface when the sun went down.
In an evening presented by OmniSource, Frank Marshall, of Valparaiso, shot out to an early lead while Dan Hamstra, of Wheatfield, and Steven Hogue made up the top three in the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds Feature. A quick caution bunched up the field which allowed Derek Losh, of Rensselaer, to run up top and grab third from Hogue when the track went green. After another caution on lap seven, Losh used the same line to get by Hamstra for second when they got back to the start/finish line.  Marshall saw Losh coming quickly and did what he could to retain the lead.  Marshall held off Losh and pulled ahead of the field.  Jamie Lomax got into the mix and went after Hamstra for third. Marshall and Losh, who were running first and second, saw lapped traffic by lap 15 which didn’t affect them. Hamstra and Lomax found the lapped car of DJ Streeter on the last lap. Hamstra went on the high side of Streeter while Lomax went low and the three went into the final turn of the race. The pair passed Streeter, but it was Hamstra who was able to claim the third spot by four-tenths of a second. Marshall won the feature followed by Losh and Hamstra.
From the pole to the finish, David Short, of Winamac, got the job done in the WTCA Super Streets Feature. Short jumped to the lead quickly while Roger Duszynski, Jr., of Black Oak, moved into the second position by Ron Wilkes, of Lowell, on the second lap. The top three stayed quiet through the first half of the race. After a mid-race caution, Wilkes attempted a pass to gather second place from Duszynski, Jr., but stayed in the third position. A caution on the last lap set up a green-white-checkered finish which didn’t affect the racing order. Short was the winner with Duszynski, Jr. in second and Wilkes in third.
The Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints had a rough start with a five-car pileup in between turns three and four on the first lap in a packed field of cars. That didn’t stop Dylan Woodling, of Warsaw, from dominating the race from the pole. Barbie Kimmel, of Mentone, who began the race in fifth, was able to get up to the second spot on lap seven while Justin Harper, of Denver, Indiana, rounded out the top three. On lap 16, Blake Lamb’s car suffered engine trouble. He pulled his No. 69 600 Open Sprint off the live track and pulled onto the outer racing surface. It was then that the engine caught fire with flames shooting out of the left front of the engine compartment, into the driver’s cockpit and over the top of the car. The race was red-flagged while safety crews were quick to extinguish the fire. Lamb was not injured in the incident, thanks to the expert safety staff on board at Plymouth Speedway. When the race resumed, Woodling kept the lead and won the race while Kimmel finished in second and Harper in third.
The landscape of the Walmart Thunder Stocks podium changed slightly this week. Points leader John Rhoads, of Mentone, led the race from the pole position while Sheldon Oberle occupied second and Tom Grall zeroed in on third. After a caution on lap four, Grall, of Plymouth, powered his way to second while Oberle slipped to third. It appeared that Chris Hunter was on his way to a podium spot and the lead just after the halfway point of the race, but his car suffered a mechanical failure after a caution. Tony Bowman, of Wabash, moved up to the third spot and began battling Grall for position when the race went green. They stayed side-by-side for two laps before Grall fought off Bowman for second. Grall then snuck up on Rhoads and the pair were side-by-side for the lead on the last lap. Grall was racing a higher line than Rhoads and got the lead out of turn four while looking at the checkered flag. Grall was the winner while Rhoads was in second and Bowman was third.
Join us for a packed week of racing as the first of a three-day Hump Day Summer Series occurs on Wednesday, June 29 with the USAC Midgets and the Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints set to take the track.

Tony Elliott Tribute Night One to Watch at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Goodan - June 21, 2016
(Plymouth, IN) The drivers who signed up to be a part of the Tony Elliott Tribute night at Plymouth Speedway Tuesday night put on a show for the fans and a national audience will get in on the fun.
MAVTV was present to film the action which will be replayed at a later date.
Tony Elliott was a two-time USAC champion and won 26 national races. Elliott was killed in a plane crash on Oct. 3, 2015 with three other passengers on their way to watch the Notre Dame vs. Clemson football game in South Carolina. Tuesday night’s race at Plymouth Speedway was held in the honor of his memory and to raise funds for the Tony Elliott Foundation.
The show started with the 410 Open Sprints where the drivers did not disappoint. CJ Leary, of Greenfield, was able to take the lead by lap seven after getting by Shane Cottle and Dave Darland.  Darland, of Atlanta, Indiana, ran second for the majority of the feature but got out of his groove in the last 10 laps of the race. That allowed Shane Cottle to get into the second spot. The running order stayed that way until the last few laps. Tyler Courtney, of Indianapolis, who started on the outside pole, fell back in the top 10 after getting too high in the cushion early in the race.  By lap 24 in the 30-lap feature, Courtney was in third place. When the checkered flag waved, Leary was the winner with Cottle in second and Courtney in third.
The Shepherd Firearms Pro Sprints feature found a repeat winner from Saturday night’s race. It wasn’t an easy road for Kevin Atkins as he had to get by pole-sitter Bill Hartman, of Marcellus, and Zane DeVault, of Plymouth. DeVault took the early lead.  A red flag was displayed as a small fire began under a car that pulled into the infield. After the scene was cleared and the green flag waving, Atkins went to work on DeVault and claimed the lead on lap seven. From there, Hartman and DeVault would trade positions for the second running spot for several laps before DeVault claimed it. All of this was happening under the eye of Eric Saunders, of Lakeville, who was charging passed competitors after starting at the tail of the field. He was soon on the bumper of Hartman who was running third. Saunders had a run on Hartman coming out of turn four on the last lap, but Hartman beat him to the checkered flag. The margin was one-tenth of a second. Atkins, of Warsaw, went home with the win while DeVault finished second and Hartman in third.
In the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds contest, Dan Hamstra and Derek Losh were first and second throughout most of the race. They tangled going into turn one when Losh tried to go on the inside of Hamstra for the lead on the last lap. The front of Losh’s car got locked onto the left rear of Hamstra’s Modified and the pair traveled down the backstretch while connected and slid into turn three. This set up a green-white-checkered finish with completely different front runners. Todd Sherman, of Churubusco, assumed the lead with Jamie Lomax, of Lake Village, in second and Nick Allen, of Wheatfield, in third. The race restarted with Sherman solidly in the lead. Dylan Woodling, of Warsaw, restarted the race in fourth and used the high groove to climb to the third spot. Using the same line, he was able to come out of turn four on the last lap and bump Lomax out of second.  Sherman was the winner with Woodling in second and Lomax third. NASCAR driver Justin Allgaier was also part of the lineup but his Modified suffered issues early in the race while running third.
Plymouth Speedway will be open again this Saturday, June 25 for a Saturday night event presented by OmniSource. The Swan Lake UMP Modifieds will be back in action along with the Walmart Thunder Stocks, WTCA Super Streets and the Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints. Racing begins at 7 p.m. ET. The USAC Midgets will be at the track on Wednesday, June 29 and will be nationally televised as well.
