Hilltop Speedway

9th Annual Weekend on the Hill

            As the 2017 race season winds down, fans and drivers alike would pack Hilltop Speedway for the 9th Annual Weekend on the Hill. A complete show Friday for mini stocks, featuring both Hilltop and Wayne County rules as well as Bugs-R-Gone trucks and a $300 to win CW Concrete sponsored mini wedge race. Saturday would feature a complete show including $2,000 to win Holmes Tire late models as well as an increase in purses across the board.

On Friday, the First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees mini wedges were in action with a field of 13 chasing the $300 to win sponsored by CW Concrete. Heat race winners were Lucas Crooks and Reece “The Beast” Bollinger, setting the front row for the night’s feature event. Jumping out front early was Crooks as he would begin to pull away and make his way through lap traffic by lap six. Troubles for second place, Bollinger with twelve laps down, would open the door for CJ Kinneer and Evan Large to take second and third. Thirteen laps down, caution would once again come out, bunching the field up for the restart. Back under green, Crooks would again take the top spot as Kinneer searched for a way to the front. Unfortunately, on lap eighteen, Jacob Wright would come into contact with the leader bringing out the caution. Racing back underway, Crooks would again claim the top spot and that is where he would remain going on to pick up the $300 win at his first appearance at Hilltop Speedway.

            Running a single show on Friday night and doing something a little different on the Hill, the Wayne County ruled mini stocks would feature a field of twenty-one. With two heats, winners were Dale Beckett and Brad Hensel. After the redraw, front row Beckett and Michael Stewart would bring the field to the green. Taking the early lead was Beckett with one lap down but working his way through the field from seventh to battle for the lead was Billy Parsons. With nine laps in the books, an extended caution would come out after contact between Brad Hershberger and Briana Hensel. Lined back up and ready to take the green, a three wide battle for the lead would ensue off of turn two between Beckett, Parsons and Hensel. Eleven laps in, Parsons would claim the top spot as Beckett and Hensel would go back and forth for second. Nevertheless, going on to pick up the feature win and a front row starting position in Saturday’s mini stock race it was Billy Parsons.

The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a field of thirteen on Friday and a field of twelve on Saturday. Picking up the heat race wins on Friday were Rolly Heyder and Travis Winterringer, who would also pick up a heat win on Saturday as well as Blake Heyder. As Heyder brought the field to the start of Friday night’s feature event he would take the lead. However, Winterringer would challenge Heyder as the two would go side by side with ten laps down. With a mere three to go, Donnie Danley, would challenge the bumper of Winterringer to claim second. But, as the checker flag came out it was Heyder adding another win onto his season. With Saturday’s feature set, it again was Rolly Heyder to the lead. Running second and looking to take the lead was Blake Heyder. However, unable to do so as Rolly Heyder would go on to sweep the weekend with another win. 

The Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stock division had full field of cars with twenty on Friday and twenty-one on Saturday. Friday night heat race winners were Casey Butler and Colten St. John, while Saturday night heat race winners were Robert Frohnapfel, Casey Butler and Sean Rush with the last chance race going to Brian Dawson. After a redraw, the field was set for Friday’s feature as Tim Workman brought them to the green. Butler, outside pole, would take the early lead. However, troubles for Butler would end his night early as he went to the infield. With Jerry Adkins the new leader, he would defend his position from Rush and Geary to pick up the win and a front row starting position for Saturday’s feature event. Bringing the field to the start of Saturday’s 12-lap feature event was Jerry Adkins who would lead green to checker, caution free to claim back to back feature wins.

Rounding out Friday night’s events there were powderpuff races for any non-racing, female that wanted to try her hand at the wheel as well as a mechanics race. Picking up the win in the mini stock powderpuff race was Monica Gallion with Taylor Danley claiming the truck win. The mechanics race was won by Mike Rowe.

            The Holmes Tire late models had the largest car count of the weekend with thirty-one. Setting fast time and picking up the $500 fast qualifier bonus was ‘Flyin’ Ryan Markham with a time of 14.515. Heat race winners were Larry Bellman, Craig Wolford and Nathon Loney with ‘Chargin’ Charlie Duncan picking up the dash win. With two last chance races, winners were Jimmy Morey and Allen Baker.

            With the field set, the green was out for their 30-lap $2,000 to win and pole setter Charlie Duncan would claim the top spot. Challenging the leader, JR Gentry, would search for a way to the front. Lap after lap, Gentry would battle the bumper of Duncan as they worked their way up to lap traffic. Meanwhile, Corey Conley, who has found much success this season at the Hill, would challenge the front runners at an attempt at a three way battle for the lead. Unfortunately, troubles for Gentry would cause him to slow coming down the front stretch, bringing out the yellow and ending his night early. Back under green, Duncan would once again claim the top spot fending off challenges by Conley going on to pick up $2,000 and his first feature win at the Hill this season.

The Hangout in Danville modified division had a field of nineteen with Nathon Loney setting fast time at a 15.841. Picking up a heat race each was “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith and Bruce Takach, while DJ Cline claimed the dash win and pole for the night’s feature event.

            Bringing the field down the back stretch to the green, Cline would jump out front early. However, Casey Fritz and Nathon Loney would work the bumper of Cline for second looking in at the lead. Two laps down, Loney would claim second over Fritz and begin his pursuit of the leader. Five laps down, caution would come out for debris, bunching the field up for the restart. With fast qualifier, Loney, on his bumper, Cline would take to defending his top spot as the green was again out. Meanwhile, working his way from a tenth place starting position, around Troy Johnson on lap nine, to crack into the top five was Chris Basich. Seventeen laps down and the battle for the lead continuing, caution would come out as a lap car would spin out in front of the leaders. Single file for restart, Cline would again take the lead. However, Loney, relentless in his pursuit, would pass Cline coming off of two with five laps to go and that is where he would remain picking up the night’s feature win. 

            Next to roll out on the track were the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a field of twenty-two. Three heat races for the class, wins would go to Kevin Potts, Paul Holmes and Kyle Moore with the last chance race going to Jason St. John.

            With the feature set, the green was out and pole setter, Kevin Potts would take the early lead. However, challenging the bumper of Potts, Holmes and Moore taking to the inside would make it a three wide battle for the lead. With Potts edging out, Moore would surpass Holmes on lap two to claim second, setting his sights once again on the leader. After a late caution, the field would bunch up for a single file restart. Back under green, Moore and Potts would go side by side down the backstretch for the lead with Moore claiming the spot on lap thirteen and ultimately the win.

            Rounding out the weekend’s events, were the Rigz Towing modlites with their largest car count of the season with twenty-seven. Heat race winners were Jeff Teeters, Tracy Fritter and Aaron Meister. Jimmy Smith would pick up the win in the last chance race. With the field set, it was Jeff Teeters who would claim the lead with one lap in the books. However, Fitter would charge back off of two to take the lead down the back stretch with two laps down. An early caution, would bunch the field up for the restart with Fritter setting the pace. Back under green, Fritter would pull away from his competitors and go on to pick up the night’s feature win.

Points Season Comes to an End as 2017 Champions were Named

            As the 2017 points season comes to an end at Hilltop Speedway, fans and drivers alike showed up to take part in the final attempt at the points season championship.

The First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees mini wedges featured a field of seven in the junior division and six in the senior division. Heat race winners were Jacob Wright among the juniors and Logan Duncan among the seniors.

With the junior field set and ready to hit the track, the green was out and it was pole setter, Wright to the front of the pack with Jake Simon second. Unfortunately, Simon would bring out the caution two laps down forcing him to restart tail. Back under green, Wright would again take the top spot as Conner Hess took second. Nevertheless, after leading every lap, picking up the win was Jacob Wright. Second went to Jake Simon, after an early caution, third Brice Hague, fourth Conner Hess, and fifth Darryn Markey. The junior division points champion for 2017 was Brice Hague.

The senior division feature, started off with an early caution charged to outside pole setter Reece Bollinger forcing him to the tail. Once under green, it was Logan Duncan taking the top spot with Karyssa Beagle looking in. However, three laps down, Beagle would bring out the caution sending her to the tail. With racing back underway, Duncan would again jump out front as Reece Bollinger would make his way back up through the field to second. Bollinger challenging Duncan would gain the top spot as Duncan would bring out the yellow. Thus, setting up a green, checker, finish with Duncan on the tail. Once again green, it was Reece “The Beast” Bollinger fending off competitors to cap off his season with a win and a points championship. Finishing second was Levi Crider followed by Logan Duncan, from the tail, Karyssa Beagle and Evan Large.

The Holmes Tire late model division had a field of twenty-three with Michael Davis setting fast time with a 15.234. Heat race winners were “The General” George Lee and Stephen Prince with Jeromy Misel picking up the dash.

With the green out for their 25-lap feature, pole sitter Misel would jump out to the early lead as Shane McLoughlin and DJ Cline went side by side for second. Troubles for McLoughlin off of two would leave the door open for Cline to secure second. Looking in, Cline would make contact with Misel off of turn four, taking the lead with two laps in the books. Just as the field put two laps down, caution would come out bunching the field back up single file. Racing back underway, it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley who would make his presence known through twenty-three straight green flag laps. Taking not only the lead but putting nearly a half a track between himself and second. Thus, working his way to victory lane once again and claiming the 2017 Hilltop Speedway points championship as well. Rounding out the top five was Shane McLoughlin, George Lee, Dave Hornikel and DJ Cline.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a 12-car field with David Potts and John Wilson each picking up a heat race win. With Potts and Wilson front row, the feature battle from two weeks ago would continue as the front runners would go side by side down the back stretch. However, this time it was Wilson claiming lap one. Potts undeterred would challenge the bumper of Wilson looking to obtain the top spot. However, after fending off Potts, leading green to checker, it was John Wilson who would park it in victory lane. Finishing second and also picking up this year’s points championship was David Potts followed by Rusty Redman, Kevin Potts and Trae Schonauer.

Setting fast time among seventeen Hangout in Daville modifieds was Bruce Takach with a 16.418. With two heat races, wins went to “Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith and George Lee as “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse picked up the dash win, placing him on the pole for the night’s feature.

With Morehouse setting the pace to the green, outside pole sitter, DJ Cline would jump out to an early lead taking lap one. However, yellow would come out, bunching the field up single file. After multiple attempts at going green, racing was back underway and Cline would retain the top spot as Jesse Wardell and “Rockin” Robin Duston would both take to the inside and make their way around Chris Basich to take third and fourth off turn two. Cline, still out front, would be challenged once again by Morehouse, who would claim the lead off of turn four. As the battle for the lead continued, Duston would challenge Wardell and ultimately take third. With all the momentum in his favor, Duston would continue his charge to the front and make his way around not only Cline but Morehouse as well to claim the top spot. Unfortunately, caution would come out once more, setting the field up for a green, white, checker finish. Back under green, Duston would maintain his position in the front of the pack and go on to pick up his first feature win of the season followed by DJ Cline, Kevin Morehouse, Jesse Wardell and Jimmy Smith. The 2017 season points champion in the modified division was “The General” George Lee.

Next out were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with a field of twelve. Picking up heat race one was Rolly Heyder with the second heat race win going to Travis Hare. As the green came out for their 15-lap feature event it was Rolly Heyder to the front with Donnie Danley a close second. Meanwhile, working his way up to the bumper of Danley from his fifth place starting position was “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson. While Wilson went to work on Danley, the two would go side by side down the backstretch with Wilson ultimately claiming second. Setting his sights on Heyder, Wilson would look to reel in the leader for a final attempt at a win this season. Challenging Heyder, Wilson would close the gap but would be unable to surpass as Heyder would go on to pick up the win and secure his 2017 points season championship. Finishing third was Donnie Danley, fourth Travis Winterringer and fifth Travis Hare.

Fifteen entries would make up the Rigz Towing modlite division where Tracy Fritter and Jeff Teeters each picked up heat race wins. With the field set, the green was out and Fritter would take the top spot while Kevin Morehouse and Tanner McLoughlin battled it out for third. However, a mere lap in the books, caution would come out. Single file for the restart, Fritter, would again take the lead as McLoughlin, now all over the bumper of Teeters, would challenge for second ultimately claiming the position. With the laps dwindling, Teeters would challenge back looking to reclaim second and ultimately doing so. Nevertheless, as the laps dwindled front runner Fritter would put a straight away between himself and the rest of the field to go on to pick up the feature win. Fritter was followed by Jeff Teeters, 2017 points champion Tanner McLoughlin, Kevin Morehouse and Clint Snyder.

Rounding out the final points night of the 2017 season were the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with a field of fifteen. Picking up a heat race win each was KC Butler and Edwin Geary. With Butler on point, the green was out for their 12-lap feature event. Taking the top spot with one lap down was Butler with Jerry Adkins not far behind. All over the bumper of the leader, Adkins would try to navigate his way to the front. Four laps in caution would come out, bunching the field up for the restart. Back under green, it was Butler to the lead as John Ohse would work his way around Geary to claim third. Still challenging, Butler and Adkins would battle lap after lap for the top spot. However, Adkins would be unable to capitalize as it was KC Butler going on to pick up the win followed by Adkins, John Ohse, 2017 points season champion Edwin Geary and Tim Workman.

     As the race season draws to an end for the 2017 season, what better way to end it then with the family at Hilltop Speedway 

 

    Starting off the night were the First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees mini wedges with eleven youngsters among the junior and senior divisions. A single heat race each, it was Conner Hess winning among the juniors and Logan Duncan among the seniors. With the junior wedge drivers ready for the green, it was pole setter Hess who would claim the first two laps. However, after bringing out the caution on lap three, would have to restart tail. Back green, Jake Simon would take laps three and four while Hess worked his way back up to second. Challenging Simon, Hess, would retain the lead on lap five and that is where he would remain picking up the feature win followed by Simon, Darryn Markey, Brice Hague and Breanna Goodman. The senior division, started with a battle for the lead between Reece Bollinger and Logan Duncan. Bollinger claiming lap one, would be challenged by Duncan who would gain the lead by lap two. Thus, after fending off Bollinger, it was Logan Duncan sitting in victory lane once again. Finishing third was Karyssa Beagle, fourth Caden Alexander and fifth Evan Large. 

 

    Setting fast time among a field of twenty Holmes Tire Late models was "The Flying Ace" Corey Conley with a time of 14.684. Heat race winners were "The General" George Lee and Rod Conley with Corey Conley picking up the dash win and pole position. 

    Bringing the field to the start of their 25-lap feature event, it was Conley who would take the early lead with DJ Cline second. Meanwhile, the battle would ensue for third between "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse and Shane McLoughlin with "Dangerous" Dave Hornikel looking in. With ten laps to go, Conley would start to work his way through lap traffic, distancing himself from second, Cline. Using lap traffic to their advantage, both Hornikel and McLoughlin would work their way around Morehouse to claim third and fourth. Hornikel, now on the bumper of Cline, would look to the low line to take second coming off turn two with four laps to go. Cline, now third, would be pressured by McLoughlin who would also look to the inside, as they battled their way through lap traffic, successfully claiming third off of turn four with one lap to go. Nevertheless, after leading ever lap and nearly putting half a track lead on the rest of the field it was "The Flying Ace" Corey Conley picking up the win. Rounding out the top five was Dave Hornikel, Shane McLoughlin, DJ Cline and Kevin Morehouse.

 

    Next out onto the track were The Hangout in Danville modifieds with a field of thirteen. Fast time among his competitors was Chris Basich with a time of 15.777. A single heat race win went to "The Toboso Bullet" Jimmy Smith with the dash win going to Bruce Takach. 

    Setting the pace to the green, it was outside pole setter, Chris Basich jumping out to an early lead. Three laps down, caution would come out as Aaron Scott looked to the inside of Takach. Single file for the restart, Basich would again claim the top spot as Takach would take to the low line to challenge for the lead. As the leaders worked their way through lap traffic, caution would come out with ten laps in, setting up another restart. Once again under green, Basich would take to the high side to retain the lead as Jimmy Smith made his way to the bumper of Takach looking in at second with five laps to go. With a close battle among the top three, caution would again come out with a mere three laps to checker. Bunched back up, the green was again out with Basich reclaiming the lead as Smith worked his way around Takach to take second with one to go. However, as the checker dropped it was Chris Basich picking up the feature win. Finishing second was Smith followed by Bruce Takach, Aaron Scott and Denny Benjamin.

 

    The Holmes Pest Control street stocks featured a fifteen car field with heat race wins going to David Potts and Kevin Potts, setting them on the front row for the night's feature. Rounding turn four to the green, David Potts would take the initial lead over dad, Kevin. However, caution would come out with one lap in, setting up a single file restart. Back under racing conditions, David Potts would again take the lead as John Wilson would work his way around Kevin to claim second. With his sights on the leader, Wilson would challenge Potts lap after lap for the top spot. All over the bumper, Wilson would look for his way to the front, however, Potts would maintain his position undeterred. Thus, as the checker come out it was David Potts picking up the win. Second went to Wilson, third to Kyle Moore, fourth was Kevin Potts and fifth was Trae Schonauer. 

 

    There were eleven in the Rigz Towing modlite division with Levi Lease and Joe Burkhead picking up heat race wins. With the field set, it was Lease taking the early lead. However, caution would come out forcing a complete restart. With racing back under way, it was Burkhead who would jump out front over Lease to claim the lead. Meanwhile, making his way to the front to challenge Burkhead was Tanner McLouhglin, who would ultimatley charge around Burkhead and take the lead with three laps in the books. Undeterred, Burkhead, would battle right back up to the bumper of McLoughlin and reclaim the lead off of turn four with six laps down and that is where he would remain. After fending off multiple attempts by McLoughlin, Joe Burkhead would take the checker to pick up his first feature win at the Hill. Second went to McLoughlin followed by Joey Anderson, John Cogar and making his way back to fifth after having to restart tail due to an early tire change was Clint Snyder. 

 

    With a fourteen truck field, the Bugs-R-Gone trucks featured two heat races with Donnie Danley and Rolly Heyder picking up a win each. Set for their 12-lap feature, Danley and Heyder would go side by side down the front stretch with Heyder edging out to take the lead with one lap down. Working the high line, Braxton Wilson would make his way around Danley to take second and set his sights on Heyder. Meanwhile, a battle for third would ensue between Travis Winterringer and Danley, just as the caution would come out for Danley. Five laps in and back under green, Heyder out front with Wilson challenging his bumper for the lead. Nevertheless, able to fend off Wilson, lap after lap, to once again set in victory lane was Rolly Heyder followed by Wilson, Travis Winterringer, Donnie Danley and Mason Radcliff. 

 

    The Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks had a field of fourteen with John Ohse and Colton St. John each getting a win, placing them on the front row for the night's feature event. With the green out the battle would ensue, as the front two rows would take it four wide down the backstretch battling for the lead. Unfortunately, caution would come out forcing the field to bunch back up for the restart. Once under green, Ohse and St. John would go to work for the top spot. Meanwhile, Jerry Adkins would make his presence known as he would work around Ohse to claim second. Adkins, up to the bumper of St. John, would put the pressure on as the two worked their way through lap traffic. Just as the white flag was in the air, caution would come out, setting the field up for a green/checker finish. Back racing, Adkins would again put the pressure on St. John, as the two came off turn four to the checker, edging out a bumper to claim the win was Colton St. John. Finishing a close second was Jerry Adkins followed by John Ohse, Tim Workman and Edwin Geary. 

 

        Rounding out the night's events was the Bugs-R-Gone trucks non-winners race where Blake Heyder was able to go on and pick up his first ever feature win. Second went to Josey Lillibridge, third Travis Hare, fourth Chris Asbury and fifth Mason Radcliff.

Felix Picks up Win Among Ohio Thunder Racesaver Sprints
 
    It was a perfect, summer, Saturday night for a little dirt track racing on the Hill with the return of the Ohio Thunder Racesaver Sprint Car Series among the divisions seeing action.
    
    Making their second appearance this season at Hilltop Speedway, the Ohio Thunder Racesaver sprints featured a field of nine. Heat race winners were Rob Felix and Jim Lewis, placing them front row for their feature event. With the field set, the green was out and it was Felix taking the early lead. Meanwhile, making his way through the field, to battle for second was Jake Hesson. Side by side, Hesson challenged Lewis, ultimately taking second coming off turn four with three laps down. Hesson, looking to reel in Lewis and make a charge for the lead, would be unable to surpass. Thus, after leading every lap, green to checkered, it was Jim Lewis picking up the feature win followed by Hesson, Lewis, Hunter Lynch and Jay Dunaway.
 
    Next out onto the speedway were the Holmes Tire late models with a field of nineteen. Setting fast time in the division was Rick Mardis with a time of 14.646.  Picking up a heat race win each was Craig Wolford and Larry Holbrook with George Lee claiming the win in the dash. After a 25-lap feature event, it was "The General" George Lee sitting in victory lane, picking up his first feature win of the season. Rounding out the top five was Jeromy Misel, Michael Davis, Brad Mickley and Rick Mardis.
 
    The next division to see action were the Rigz Towing modlites with a field of twelve. With two heat races, wins went to Barry Jacobs and Chris Robinson, setting the front row of their 12-lap feature event. Coming off of four to the green, pole sitter, Jacobs would jump out front early as the inside row of Tanner McLoughlin followed to claim second. Running strong all season, McLoughlin would challenge Jacobs for the top spot. Working his bumper, McLoughlin would take over the lead on lap three and not look back. Fending off challenges by Jacobs as well as Robinson, Tanner McLoughlin would go on to pick up his first feature win in the modlite division this season. Second went to Chris Robinson followed by Tim Maharg, Barry Jacobs and Brandon Shaw.
 
    Setting fast time among fifteen Hangout in Danville modifieds was "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse with a time of 16.191. A single heat race win went to Bob Page as George Lee picked up the dash win. Bringing the field down the backstretch, it was Lee and Kyle Moore, his first night out in the modified, on the front row. As the green dropped, Moore would jump out front over the field as Morehouse looked in from second. Caution would come out with a mere two laps in the books, forcing a single file restart. Back under green, Moore would once again retain the top spot with "The Logger" working the inside line challenging Moore for the lead. As the front runners began to work their way through lap traffic, Morehouse would close in on Moore, taking the lead on lap eleven. Continuing to navigate his way through lap cars, Morehouse would begin to pull away as Lee would work his way past Moore for second with eighteen laps down. Moreover, patiently working his way through the field up to challenge Moore for third was "Rockin" Robin Duston who would ultimately claim the position just before the white flag. Nevertheless, going on to pick up his sixth straight feature win at Hilltop Speedway was Kevin Morehouse. Finishing second was George Lee, third Robin Duston, fourth Kyle Moore and fifth was Kyle Brown.
 
    The Bugs-R-Gone truck division had a field of nine with Rolly Heyder picking up the only heat race win. Heyder, bringing the field to the green, would take the early lead over outside pole sitter Donnie Danley. Meanwhile, the battle for second would ensue between Danley and Braxton Wilson, with Wilson ultimately taking second. Two laps down, caution would come out, forcing the field up single file. Back under green, Heyder would again take the lead as Wilson would look for a way to the front as the front runners came up on lap traffic. Unfortunately, caution would once again come out with eleven laps down as Danley, running a strong third, would spin out off of two sending him to the tail for the restart. Back under green, Heyder would maintain his position at the front of the field as Danley worked his way back up to fourth. Unfortunately, troubles for Wilson, as he went down the back stretch for the final lap, losing two positions. As the checker flag waved, it was Rolly Heyder, no strager to victory lane, picking up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was Travis Hare, Donnie Danley, Braxton Wilson and Zoe Stafford.
 
    Rounding out the night's events were the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a field of ten. Heat race winners were John Wilson and Kevin Potts. Setting the pace to the green, it was Wilson who would take the early lead. As the battle for second ensued between Kevin Potts and David Potts. With four laps down, caution would fly, bunching they field back up for the restart. Back to green flag racing, Wilson would again take the top spot as David Potts would take to the high side for second. However, Kevin would charge right back to take back second. Caution, once again with seven laps down, bunched the field for single file restart. With racing back underway, Wilson with a good start, would retain the top spot. Meanwhile, Bob Chilcote would get a run looking to challenge the bumper of David Potts for third. However, caution would again come out setting up a green, white, checker finish. Back under green, Wilson would again take to the high side and retain the lead with Kevin Potts working the low line. Nevertheless, after leading every lap going on to pick up his third feature win of the season it was John Wilson followed by Kevin Potts, Bob Chilcote, David Potts and Tommy Lute,

            It was Fan Apprieciation night Saturday at Hilltop Speedway and what a better way to thank these individuals who come out an support their local dirt track each and every week than with a night of non-stop racing action including the $500 to win Rigz Towing modlite special.
 
    Starting off the night's events were the First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees mini wedges with nine youngsters in both divisions. Heat race winner among the junior division was Conner Hess while Logan Duncan picked up the win for the senior division. The green was out for the junior division as it was pole sitter, Conner Hess, who would take an early lead with Caden Wiley looking in. Troubles for Hess, with one to go would bring out the caution and force him to restart tail. A restart with one to go, Hess would make an effort to the front, however was unable to surpass as it was Caden Wiley who would go on to pick up the win followed by Hess, Brice Hague and Darryn Markey. The senior division had a five car field, with Logan Duncan taking the top spot early followed by Caden Alexander. Challenging, Alexander would do everything he could to get around Duncan. However, after winning the heat race and leading every lap of the feature, it was Logan Duncan who would pick up the win followed by Caden Alexander, Evan Large, Reece Bollinger and Karyssa Beagle.  
 
   The Rigz Towing modlites had a field of sixteen for their $500 to win special with Tracy Fritter and Mark Marcucci each picking up a heat race win. Setting them on the front row of their feature. Bringing the field to the start of their 12-lap $500 to win feature event, it was pole sitter, Tracy Fritter, who would take the early lead as Marcucci and Joey Burkhead battled it out for second. Six laps in the books, Fritter was all alone out front as Marcucci opened his lead up over Burkhead by lap eight. Meanwhile, working his way around Barry Jacobs to take fifth was Clint Snyder who would look to make his way to the front. However, caution would come out, forcing a single file restart. Back under green, Fritter would again take to the front of the field as Tanner McLoughlin would bobble leaving the door opening for Snyder. Fortunately, for McLoughlin, caution would come out before a lap would be completed providing him with his fourth place restart position. Once again under green, Fritter would maintain his position as McLoughlin got the run and around Burkhead for third, looking in on the bumper of Marcucci for second. Contact between the two as McLoughlin looked for a way to the front. Nevertheless, with the checkered out, it was Tracy Fritter, with a commanding performance, picking up the Rigz Towing $500 to win special. Finishing second was Mark Marcucci, third was Tanner McLoughlin, fourth was Joey Burkhead and rounding out the top five was Barry Jacobs.
 
The Holmes Tire late model division had a field of nineteen with Vic Hottinger setting fast time at a 14.253. Heat race winners were Cody Endlich and Larry Holbrook with “The General” George Lee winning the dash and pole position.
With the field set, the green was out for their 25-lap feature event. Jumping out front early was Shane McLoughlin with George Lee and Corey Conley side by side, not far behind. With four laps in, caution would come out, setting the field up for single file restart. Back under green, McLoughlin would again retain the top spot as Conley looked to the inside of Lee. Eight laps down, the top three would begin to pull away from the field as they worked their way through lap traffic. Troubles for Lee, as he would make contact with a lap car in turns one and two, although both were able to maintain position and stay under green flag racing. Unfortunately, Lee would again have trouble in one and two, slowing off turn two just as a caution would come out allowing him to maintain position. Single file to the green, McLoughlin again fended off competitors to claim the top spot as Conley worked around Lee to take second. Moreover, Dave Hornikel would also challenge Lee as he took to the low line and would claim the third position off of two. Once again under yellow, Conley would look to use the restart to his advantage. However, green flag racing, McLoughlin would retain the lead as fast qualifier, Vic Hottinger, would look to the inside of Lee to take fourth going down the back stretch. As the leaders made their way back up to lap traffic, Conley would make a charge off of four to the checkered but was unable to surpass as it was Shane McLoughlin picking up his first feature win of the season. Rounding out the top five was Corey Conley, Dave Hornikel, Vic Hottinger and George Lee.
 
Danville’s own, Nathon Loney would set fast time among a field of seventeen in The Hangout in Danville modified division with a time of 16.026. A single heat race win went to “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith while “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse picked up the dash win.
Bringing the field to the green, Morehouse would take a slight lead. However, as the field went down the backstretch a four way battle ensued between front runners, Morehouse, DJ Cline, Scott Peltz and Nathon Loney.  Unfortunately, caution would come out with a mere one lap in, forcing a single file restart with Morehouse setting the pace back to the green. With racing back underway, Morehouse would again take the top spot, this time with Cline challenging. Contact between Peltz and Loney as the two battled it out for third with Peltz getting the advantage. Moreover, troubles for Loney in turn one and two would cause him to fall back to eighth. On lap six, caution would once again come out, providing Cline another opportunity to get the run on current leader, Morehouse. Back under green, Cline would continue to challenge Morehouse. Nevertheless, “The Logger” would begin working his way through lap traffic, using them to his advantage to pull away from his challengers and claim his fifth feature win. Second went to DJ Cline followed by Scott Peltz, Robin Duston and George Lee.
 
Eleven trucks made up the field in the Bugs-R-Gone truck division with "The Dominator" Braxton Wilson and Donnie Danley each picking up a heat race win. With the field set, the green was out and it was Wilson who would jump to an early lead with Danley a close second. Meanwhile, "Wild Hare" Travis Hare would make his way to battle the outside of Rolly Heyder for third. However, troubles for Hare would cost him position as Travis Winterringer would take fourth with three laps down. Heyder, looking to take second from Danley, would be unsuccessful as Winterringer would put the pressure on him for third. Neverthless, Wilson using lap traffic, would put distance between himself and the rest of the field going on to pick up the feature win. Finishing second was Donnie Danley, third Rolly Heyder, fourth Travis Winterringer and fifth Travis Hare.
 
Next out, were the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with a field of twelve. Heat race winners were John Ohse and Edwin Geary, placing them on the front row of the night's feature. With the green out, the battle would ensue for the top spots. Geary would take the early lead as Ohse and Billy Parsons would go side by side for second, with Ohse getting the edge out. Looking to the inside of front runner, Geary, Ohse would challenge for the top spot with six laps in the books. However, he would be unable to do so as Parsons would make his way back under Ohse to claim second off of turn four with eight laps down. All over the bumper of Geary, Parsons would look for his way to the front. Taking the inside line, Parsons would run side by side with Geary down the front stretch taking the lead with one lap to go. Fending off Geary to go on and pick up the win was Billy Parsons followed by Geary, John Ohse, Nova Martin and Corey Mills.
 
The Holmes Pest Control street stocks rounded out the night with a field of eight with Kyle Moore picking up the single heat race win. Rounding four to the green, Moore would take the top spot, as the battle ensued between John Wilson and Kevin Potts for third. Working under Kevin for third, Wilson would set his sights on David Potts in his effort to get to the front. Contact between the two would not hinder Wilson, as he took to the low side taking second from Potts. Nevertheless, fending off all competitors and able to pick up yet another feature win on the season was Kyle Moore followed by John Wilson, David Potts, Kevin Potts and Trae Schonauer.

Conley, Morehouse and Moore Demonstrate Dominance Among Divisions
 
With many local tracks forced to cancel, after the non-stop rainfall Friday night, Hilltop Speedway stuck it out for what was sure to be a action packed night of racing.
 
Starting off the night's events were the Rigz Towing modlites with a field of twenty, the largest car count thus far this season. Featuring three heat races, wins would go to Tanner McLoughin, Tracy Fritter and Joe Burkhead. With the field set, the green was out for their 15-lap feature as Fritter and McLoughlin would go side by side down the front stretch. Fritter, running the high line, would take the lead with one lap in the books. Meanwhile, Joe Burkhead, would work his way up to the bumper of McLoughlin taking the inside line and ultimately the position. However, McLoughlin wouldn't give up easy driving back just as Joey Anderson would also start to challenge the front runners. Just as the battle for second through fourth would ensue, caution would come forcing a restart. Back under green, Fritter would maintain the top spot as McLoughlin would get a run and go side by side with Burkhead for second, taking the spot off turn two. As the field began to navigate their way through lap traffic, caution would once again come out as there was contact between McLoughlin and a lap car, ending McLoughlin's night early. Once again green, Burkhead would look to the inside of Fritter for the lead but was unable to make it stick as Tracy Fritter would continue his win streak at Hilltop. Finishing third was Joey Anderson, fourth Barry Jacobs and fifth was Dylan Rittenhouse.
 
The Holmes Tire late models had a field of twenty-one with Mike Basich setting fast time with a 14.380. Larry Bellman and Jeromy Misel would each pick up a heat race win, while 'The Flying Ace' Corey Conley would pick up the dash win and pole position for the night's feature event.
 
Brining the field to the green, Conley would jump out to an early lead with one lap in the books as Vic Hottinger looked in from second. An early caution, would bunch the field up for a single file restart with a mere two laps in. Back under green, Conley would again take the lead with Hottinger looking in. Meanwhile, battle for third would ensue as Brad Mickley would look to claim the position, all over the bumper of Craig Wolford. However, caution would once again come out. Single file, Conley would bring the field to the green and take the top spot. While, Wolford, still being challenged by Mickley, would bobble off of turn four leaving the door open for both Mickley and Mike Basich to take third and fourth position. With Conley, working his way through lap traffic, the ninth place starter, JR Gentry would work his way up to the bumper of Wolford looking to claim a top five when caution would once more come out. Lined up for restart, the green was out and Conley would maintain his position at the front of the field, while Gentry would work past Wolford and set his sights one fourth place, Mike Basich. Lap for lap, Gentry pressured Basich, and he would bobble in turn one and two allowing Gentry under. However, Basich would charge back to retain his fourth place position as the checkered was in the air. Nevertheless, putting a straight away between himself and the field, 'The Flying Ace' Corey Conley would pick up another win at Hilltop Speedway this season. Rounding out the top five was Vic Hottinger, Brad Mickley, Mike Basich and JR Gentry.
 
Next out were The Hangout in Danville modifieds with a sixteen car field. Setting fast time among his competitors was DJ Cline with a time of 15.786. A single heat race win went to Jesse Wardell with Casey Fritz picking up the dash.
 
With the green out, pole sitter Fritz would edge out. However, Bruce Takach would work the low line and under Fritz to take the lead with one lap in. Fritz undeterred would challenge back when caution would come out forcing the restart. Back under green, Takach would again take the top spot as DJ Cline looked to the inside of Fritz for second. In spite of Cline's efforts, Fritz, who was determined to reclaim the lead would get a run off of turn four and by Takach to take the top spot. Unfortunately, a single lap later, caution would again come out bunching the field back up. Once again under green, Fritz would maintain his position out front. Meanwhile, it was 'The Logger' Kevin Morehouse making his presence known, after starting fifth, getting the run in turns three and four to ultimately pass both DJ Cline and Bruce Takach to claim second. Setting his sights on the leader, Morehouse would put the pressure on Fritz who would tag the wall in the middle of three and four leaving the door open for Morehouse to take the lead. Navigating his way through lap traffic, Morehouse would maintain his lead as Bruce Takach and DJ Cline would use the lap cars to their advantage to surpass Casey Fritz taking second and third. However, as the checkered came out, it was 'The Logger' Kevin Morehouse sitting in victory lane once again. Finishing second was Bruce Takach followed by DJ Cline, Casey Fritz and Chris Basich.
 
The Holmes Pest Control street stock division featured eight cars with Kyle Moore picking up the heat race win and pole position for their 15-lap feature. Setting the pace to the green, Moore would take to the high side as Kevin Potts challenged for the lead down low. Meanwhile, a battle for third would ensue between David Potts and John Wilson, with David Potts hanging on to third and looking in at the bumper of Kevin Potts. As the laps dwindled, front runner, Moore, would begin to pull away from the field until caution would come out with four to go. Single file restart, Moore would maintain his position out front, while Wilson would again attempt the low line under David Potts. However, he was unable to make it stick as the checkered would fly and it was Kyle Moore displaying his dominance among the division picking up yet another win. Second went to Kevin Potts followed by David Potts, John Wilson and Bob Chilcote.
 
Rolly Heyder and Braxton Wilson would each claim a heat race win among the twelve competitors of the Bugs-R-Gone truck division, placing them on the front row of the feature line up. As the green dropped, the battle would ensue between Rolly Heyder and Braxton Wilson for the top spot. Edging out at the line, Heyder would take lap one. Wilson, undeterred, would challenge back looking to claim the lead. As the two worked their way up to lap traffic, Wilson would edge out for the lead down the backstretch but Heyder would charge back going side by side down the front stretch. Continuing to navigate lap traffic, Wilson still all over the bumper of Heyder ultimately be unable to surpass as Rolly Heyder would go on to pick up the win followed by Wilson, Donnie Danley, Dwayne Powell and Eddie Wilson.
 
Rounding out the night, there was a sixteen car field for the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with Jerry Adkins and Colton St. John each picking up a heat race win. With the field reset, after an early caution roll over to start their 12-lap feature, it was Jerry Adkins edging his nose to the lead. However, challengers, Colton St. John and Edwin Geary would charge to make it a three way battle for the lead with St. John claiming the top spot. Meanwhile, Geary would work his way under Adkins to take second off of turn two and set his sights on St. John. With Geary all over the bumper of St. John, the two would battle it out lap for lap. However, just as the two reached lap traffic caution would again come out. With the green back out, St. John would get the jump but Geary still challenging would pass going down the backstretch. Unfortunately, he was unsuccessful as St. John would challenge back off of four to maintain his lead, going on to pick up another feature win. Second went to Edwin Geary, third was Jerry Adkins, fourth to Howard Rock and fifth went to Kevin Markey.

‘The Flying Ace’ Reclaims Victory Lane

It was a hot one as the sun shined down on Hilltop Speedway for week eight of racing action.

There were eleven wedges among the First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees junior and senior divisions. Heat race winner in the junior division was Jacob Wright with Brooklyn Wilson winning the senior heat race. With the field set, the green was out for the junior division with Wright taking the top spot as Conner Hess, charging, looked in on the leader. However, troubles and multiple cautions would end Hess's night early as Jacob Wright would go on to pick up another feature win. Second would go to Brice Hague followed by Braxton Moore, Conner Hess and Darrin Markey. In the senior division, Brooklyn Wilson would bring the field to the green and take the early lead. Challenging the bumper of Wilson was Logan Duncan looking to take the top spot. However, contact between the two would bring out the caution and send Duncan to the tail for the restart. Back green, Wilson would again claim the lead, unfortunately, she would lose handle and bring out the caution, sending her to the tail. Once again green, it was Reece "The Beast" Bollinger taking the lead and fending off Karyssa Beagle for the final laps, to go on and pick up the win. Finishing second was Karyssa Beagle followed by Nick Large, Brooklyn Wilson and Caden Alexander.

The Holmes Tire late model division had a field of twenty with "The Flying Ace" Corey Conley setting fast time with a 14.301. Heat race winners were Vic Hottinger and "Chargin" Charlie Duncan with Craig Wolford picking up the dash win.

Bringing the field to the start of their 25-lap feature event was Wolford with "Flyin" Ryan Markham on the outside. Side by side the two would go down the backstretch with Markham edging out off of turn four to take the lead with one lap in. Working the low line, Corey Conley, would look to take second from Wolford doing so off of turn four setting his sights on Markham. Three down, caution would come out, setting up a single file restart. Back green, Markham would jump out front; however, Conley would work his way around to take the top spot. Meanwhile, as the field began to negotiate their way through lap traffic, Brad Mickley would make his presence known by working the high side around both Mike Basich and Craig Wolford to take the third spot. Nevertheless, going on to pick up his fifth win at Hilltop Speedway this season was "The Flying Ace" Corey Conley. Rounding out the top five was Ryan Markham, Brad Mickley, Craig Wolford and Mike Basich.

Setting fast time among ten in The Hangout in Danville modified division was "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse with a 15.701. Heat race winner was "Rockin" Robin Duston with "The Toboso Bullet" Jimmy Smith picking up the dash win.

Setting the pace to the green, Smith would take the lead with one lap in the books. A close second, was last week's feature winner, "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse. Side by side, coming to the line, Smith would maintain his lead as caution would come out. Back under green, Smith would again take the lead on the high side with Morehouse working the bottom. With the yellow out, the field would again bunch up for the green, Smith maintaining his position with the momentum of the high side. Unfortunately, yet another caution would come out forcing the field single file. Racing back underway, Smith would get the jump. However, coming off of two, Smith would push up as "The Logger" would get the run and take the lead. Meanwhile, setting in waiting, working up to the bumper of Smith was Chris Basich, who would ultimately work under Smith coming off of four to take second. Nevertheless, maintaining that top spot and going on to pick up a third feature win in a row was "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse followed by Chris Basich, Jimmy Smith, George Lee and Robin Duston.

The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a field of nine with a single heat race win going to Travis Winterringer. With the green out for their 12-lap feature, it was Travis Winterringer jumping out front with "The Dominator" Braxton Wilson looking in. As Winterringer fended off the challenges from Wilson, Rolly Heyder would look to take second from Wilson. All over Wilson, Heyder would look to the inside and driver under Wilson to take second. Now, with his sights set on Winterringer, Heyder would challenge for the top spot. Lap for lap, Heyder worked Winterringer, ultimately taking the high line off of two to drive side by side for the lead, solidifying the position coming off of four. Heyder now out front would remain unchallenged and thus go on to pick up yet another win on the season. Second went to Travis Winterringer, third Braxton Wilson, fourth Dwayne Powell and fifth Donnie Danley.

The Rigz Towing modlite division had eleven cars with a single heat race win going to Tracy Fritter. With the field set, the green was out for their 12-lap feature. Taking an early lead was pole setter, Tracy Fritter as troubles for outside pole, Barry Jacobs would leave the door open for youngster, Tanner McLoughlin to make his way to the front. Lap after lap, McLoughlin, Joe Burkhead and Kevin Morehouse would battle for positions two through four. With Fritter out front, McLoughlin would claim second, with the top two pulling away from the rest of the field. Nevertheless, going on to pick up another win on the season was Tracy Fritter followed by Tanner McLoughlin, Joe Burkhead and Joey Anderson with a late pass around Kevin Morehouse.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks featured ten competitors with a single heat race win going to Kevin Potts. Rounding four to the green, Kyle Moore would claim the top spot with Kevin Potts a close second. An early caution, would bunch the field up single file for the restart. Back green, Moore would again take the top spot as John Wilson would work the high side around Bob Daugherty to take fourth. Making his way through the field, troubles for Wilson as contact between himself and David Potts would cause them both to fall back in the field and the caution to come out. With the green out once more, with a single lap to go, Moore would maintain the top spot and go on to park it in victory lane once again, a common occurrence for his team this season. Finishing second was Kevin Potts followed by Dustin Daugherty, John Wilson and Jimmy Smith.

Rounding out the night's divisions were the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks, also sponsored by Mid-Ohio Steel through the month of June, with a field of fourteen. Heat race winner were Matt Miller and Edwin Geary, setting the front row for the night's 12-lap feature event. As the green dropped, it was Miller out front as Jerry Adkins and Edwin Geary battled it out for second. An early caution would bunch the field up single file for the restart. Green once more, Miller again would claim the top spot as Geary worked past Adkins off of two, down the backstretch for second. Caution would fly, providing Geary an opportunity at Miller. However, back under racing conditions, Miller would maintain his position as Wes Staley looked to the inside of Adkins to take third off of turn two. Meanwhile, last week's feature winner, John Ohse, was making a hard charge to the front, as he would battle the inside of Staley down the backstretch taking third. Ohse, all over the bumper of Geary, would challenge for second as the field worked their way through lap traffic. Unfortunately, troubles for Ohse as he would slow down off two, coming to a stop in turn three, bringing out the caution. With the field single file for a green checker finish, Miller would hold off the charge by Geary to pick up the win. Third was Wes Staley, fourth was Jerry Adkins and fifth was Billy Parsons.

Mardis Picks Up First Late Model Feature Win

A beautiful, June evening on the Hill as all seven regular race divisions would see action throughout the night.

The First Choice Stump Grinding and Tree mini wedges featured six in the junior division and five in the senior division, each featuring driver's making their first appearance at Hilltop Speedway. In the junior division picking up the lone heat race win was Conner Hess with Karyssa Beagle claiming the win in the senior division. As the junior division made their way to the start of their feature, it was Hess who would take the early lead as Jacob Wright battled the bumper, looking for a way to the front. With one to go, the yellow would come out forcing a green, checkered finish. Back green, Hess would once again take the lead and go on to pick up the feature win. Hess was followed by Wright, Caden Wiley, Brice Hague and Jake Simon. With the green out in the senior division, it was pole sitter, Beagle who would take the top spot as Logan Duncan worked his way around Chase Alexander to take second. Duncan all over the bumper of Beagle, would bring out the caution as Beagle would spin in one and two, forcing him to the tail. Back green, Beagle again took the lead as Logan worked his way back through the field again on the bumper of Beagle, after passing Reece Bollinger on the inside. Unfortunately, contact between the two would bring out the caution, ending the night early for Duncan. Nevertheless, once again under racing conditions, Beagle would retain the top spot and go on to pick up another win on the season. Second went to Reece Bollinger, third to Levi Crider, fourth to Chase Alexander and fifth Logan Duncan.

Setting fast time in the Holmes Tire late models, among twenty competitors, was Shane McLoughlin with a time of 15.700. Heat race winners were Vic Hottinger and Jeremy Misel with Rick Mardis picking up the dash win, setting him on the pole for the night's twenty-five lap feature event.

Bringing the field to the green, it was Mardis getting the run over "The Flying Ace" Corey Conley to take the lead on lap one. With Conley working the bumper of Mardis, the battle would ensue for third between Michael Davis and “The General” George Lee with Davis taking the spot. Three laps in, caution would fly, bunching the field up for restart. With the green back out, Mardis would get a good start, again claiming the top spot with Conley and Davis not far behind. However, caution would come out once more setting up for a single file restart. Back under racing conditions, Mardis would once again take the top spot as Conley searched for a way to the front. However, while doing so he would make contact with the wall in two, leaving the door open for Michael Davis. Just as Davis was overtaking second, the yellow would come out for yet another restart. With the green out, Mardis would again get the run and claim the lead as Vic Hottinger would make his way around both Craig Wolford and George Lee to claim fourth. Unfortuantely, yet another caution would force the field up single file. With another sold restart, Mardis would again take the top spot as Conley continued to search for a way around him. Meanwhile, battle would ensue between Hottinger and Davis, with Hottinger taking to the low side, under Davis for third then doing the same with Conley to claim the second position. Once again, caution would come out with nineteen laps down, bunching the field back up. With the green back out, Hottinger would challenge Mardis for the lead but unable to make it stick. Thus, going on to pick up his first feature win in the late model division it was Rick Mardis followed by Hottinger, Michael Davis, Corey Conley and Jeremy Misel.

The Hangout in Danville modifieds were next out and had a field of eighteen with DJ Cline setting fast time with a 16.617. "The Toboso Bullet" Jimmy Smith and Denny Benjamin each picked up a heat race win with "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse picking up the dash.

Setting the pace to the green, Morehouse and Bruce Takach would battle it out for the top spot with Morehouse edging out to take the lead with one lap in the books. Lap for lap, Takach would challenge the bumper of Morehouse as the two worked their way through lap traffic, Takach would gain on "The Logger". Meanwhile, fast qualifier DJ Cline would work his way around Kyle Brown to claim third. As the laps dwindled, Morehouse undeterred by the challenging Takach, maintained his run and went on to lead every lap and pick up back to back wins at the Hill. Finishing second was Bruce Takach, third was DJ Cline, fourth was Kyle Brown and cracking into the top five with five laps to go was Aaron Scott.

Next to roll onto the track were the Rigz Towing modlites with a field of eight. Picking up the single heat race win was Joey Anderson. With Anderson on pole, leading the field down the backstretch, the green was out and he would take an early lead. However, pulling double duty in the R88, it was Kevin Morehouse in second putting pressure on Anderson. With two laps in, Morehouse would pass Anderson to take the lead. Meanwhile, the battle for third between Tanner McLoughlin and Clint Snyder, would see Snyder take it with seven laps in. With Morehouse out front, Snyder would set his sights on Anderson for that second place position which he would take with three laps to go. Nevertheless, after leading every lap green to checkered, "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse would claim a second feature win on the night. Rounding out the top five were Clint Synder, Tanner McLoughlin, Joey Anderson and Tim Maharg.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks also featured a field of eight with last week's feature winner, Dave Potts, picking up the single heat race win. With the field set for their fifteen lap feature event, it was Potts who would jump out front with Kyle Moore a close second. Corner after corner, Moore would put the pressure on Potts. With five laps in, Moore would look to the inside of Potts and overtake the leader coming off of turn two. Once out front, that is where Kyle Moore would remain picking up yet another win at Hilltop this season. Second went to Dave Potts followed by Kevin Potts, Bob Chilcote and Dustin Daugherty.

Up next were the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks, also sponsored by Mid-Ohio Steel Works for the month of June, with a field of thirteen. Heat race winners were John Ohse and Colton St. John setting the front row of their feature event. As the green dropped, it was Ohse jumping to the front with St. John on his bumper as a battle for third ensued between Matt Miller and Jerry Adkins. Coming in on the white flag, caution would come out once more bunching the field up for a green checker finish. Back under green, John Ohse would again claim the top spot and that is where he would remain fending off St. John for his first feature win. Finishing third was Matt Miller followed by Jerry Adkins and Tim Workman.

The final division to see action for the night were the Bugs R Gone trucks with a field of nine. A single heat race win went to “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson placing him on the pole of the feature. As Wilson brought the field to the green, he and Rolly Heyder would battle it out for the lead with Heyder edging out to take lap one. Charging back, Wilson would take back the lead off of turn two. However, caution would come out forcing single file restart from previous completed lap position. With Heyder on point, the green was out and Heyder would again jump out from as the battle for second would ensue between Wilson and Travis Winterringer. Lap for lap, Wilson and Winterringer would battle side by side with Winterringer claiming second. Nevertheless, out front for every lap, Rolly Heyder would go on to add another win to his book. Finishing second was Travis Winterringer, third was Braxton Wilson, fourth was  Donnie Danley and fifth was Dwayne Powell.

Misel and “The Logger” Claim Feature Wins at the Hill

Making a special appearance at Hilltop Speedway this season, the Ohio Thunder Racesaver Sprint Series were welcomed at the Hill along with regular racing divisions this past Saturday night.

Starting out the night’s events were the First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees mini wedges with six wedges in both the junior and senior divisions. A single heat race for each, the junior winner was Jacob Wright and the senior winner was Brooklyn Wilson. As the junior wedges hit the track for their feature event, it was Jacob Wright leading them to the green. With Wright taking the lead, Jake Simon would work his way around Brice Hague to claim second. Nevertheless, going on to pick up yet another win for the season was Jacob Wright followed by Simon, Hague, Caden Wiley and Brianna Goodman. The senior division was brought to the green by Brooklyn Wilson who would take the lead on lap one. However, caution would come out just as Wilson would break ending her night. Back under green, it was Logan Duncan who would take the top spot and that is where he would remain going on to pick up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was Reece Bollinger, Levi Crider, Kyla Dillon and Karyssa Beagle.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks were next to roll onto the track with a field of ten. A single heat race win went to last week's feature winner John Wilson, placing him on the pole for the night's 15-lap feature event. With the green out, the battle would ensue for the lead between Wilson and David Potts. Side by side, down the backstretch, Potts would claim lap one. Lap for lap, Wilson would look to make his way to the lead. However, unable to do so as it was David Potts who would lead a caution free, green to checkered, feature race claiming his first win of the season. Finishing second was John Wilson followed by Kevin Potts, Bob Chilcote and Dustin Daugherty.

The featured class of the night was the Ohio Thunder Racesaver sprints with a field of eleven. Setting fast time among his competitors was Jeff Taylor with a time of 14.621. Heat race winners were Taylor and Jake Hesson, setting the front row for their feature. With the field set, the green was out and it was Taylor who would jump out front with Hesson looking in. After thirteen laps in the books and Taylor pulling away from the field, caution would come out forcing a single file restart with two to go. Back under green, Taylor would again take the top spot and that is where he would remain going on to pick up his first feature win at Hilltop Speedway. Second went to Jake Hesson, third to Andy Hill, fourth to Jim Lewis and fifth was Jay Dunaway.

The Holmes Tire late models had a field of twenty two with "The Flying Ace" Corey Conley setting fast time with a 14.689. Heat race winners were Rick Mardis and Shane Campbell with Craig Wolford picking up the dash win, setting him on the pole of the night's 25-lap feature event.

Setting the pace to the green, Wolford and Jeremy Misel would battle for the top spot with Wolford claiming with one lap in. However, caution would come out forcing a single file restart. With the field set, Wolford would again jump out front; however, Vic Hottinger would get the run and ultimately take the lead with three laps in. Unfortunately, Hottinger would make contact with the wall in two falling back to third. With six laps in, Misel would look to the inside of Wolford for the top spot as Dave Hornikel and Hottinger battled it out for third. Meanwhile, on the move through the field was "The General" George Lee who would claim third with fifteen laps down. Caution would once again come out, bunching the field up for the restart. With the green out, Wolford would again jump out front, however this time challenged by Lee who would take the lead on lap nineteen. Unfortunately, contact between Wolford and Lee would once more bring out the caution and end Wolford's night. Back under racing conditions, Lee would take the top spot but contact with the wall would allow Misel the opportunity to take the lead off of two and that is where he would remain going on to pick up his first feature win at the Hill. Finishing second was Dave Hornikel, third was George Lee, fourth was Rick Mardis and fifth was TJ Watson.

The Hangout in Danville modifieds featured Lance Elson setting fast time among the seventeen competitors with a 16.034. Heat race winners were Bruce Takach and "Rockin" Robin Duston with Jesse Wardell claiming the dash win and pole position.

Bringing the field to the green, Wardell and "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse would battle for the top spot, with Morehouse ultimately taking the lead with one lap in. With three laps in, troubles for front runner Wardell would bring out the caution and force him to restart tail. With racing action back underway, "The Logger" would retain the top spot as "The Toboso Bullet" Jimmy Smith and Aaron Scott battled it out lap for lap for second. Nevertheless, after leading every lap in his first appearance at the Hill this season it was "The Logger" Kevin Morehouse picking up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was Jimmy Smith, Aaron Scott, DJ Cline and Bruce Takach.

The Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks, also sponsored by Mid-Ohio Steel Works for an increased purse throughout June, had a field of fifteen. Winners of each of the two heat races were Billy Parsons and Colton St. John. As the field of fifteen, St. John would jump out front as the battle for second would ensue behind him. Troubles for front runner, Jerry Adkins, would end his night with a mere five laps in. Back under green, St. John would again claim the top spot and that is where he would remain going on to pick up his first feature win of the season. Finishing second was John Ohse, third was Billy Parsons, fourth Matt Miller and fifth was Edwin Geary.

Rounding out the night were the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks with a field of eleven. Heat race winners were Kevin Davis and Rolly Heyder.

With Heyder out front, Davis and Braxton Wilson would battle side by side for second. Unfortunately, contact between the two would bring out the caution and force Davis to restart tail. Once again under green, Heyder would again take the top spot with Wilson in pursuit. As the two battled, "The Dominator" Braxton Wilson would claim the lead on lap twelve, going on to pick up another feature win on the season followed by Heyder, Donnie Danley, Jerry Gardner and Dwayne Powell.

Danley Claims First Feature Win with Bugs-R-Gone Truck Special
 
With 100 cars in the pits, Saturday night was filled with non-stop racing, as seven different divisions were in action on the Hill. On the night’s agenda, driver autograph night for the fans, allowing them to meet their favorite drivers as well as the $500 to win Bugs R Gone truck special.
Starting off the night’s events were the First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees mini wedges with five in the Junior Division and six in the Senior Division. In the junior division, heat race winner was Conner Hess, placing him on the pole of their feature. However, troubles for Hess would prevent him from running. Under, green, it was Jacob Wright taking the lead and that is where he would remain picking up his first win of the season followed by Caden Wiley, Brice Hague, and Breanna Goodman.
 The senior division had a single heat race with Karyssa Beagle picking up the win. Down to a field of three before a single lap was in, the field would again be back under green where Karyssa would take the lead. Looking in was Logan Duncan, challenging for second. However, contact on the last lap would again bring out the caution. Picking up back to back wins was Karyssa Beagle followed by Logan Duncan, Reece Bollinger, Evan Large and Brooklyn Wilson.
The Bugs R Gone truck special featured seventeen viable drivers ready to compete for the $500 to win feature event. Heat race winners were Travis Winterringer and Rolly Heyder, setting them on the front row of the night’s 15-lap feature. As the green dropped it was Travis Winterringer who would take the early lead while Donnie Danley worked his way up to second. Unfortunately, Winterringer would slow coming off of two, ending his night. Single file, eleven laps to go, Danley would lead the field back to green flag racing. Meanwhile, after an early tire change and having to restart tail, “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson would work his way back up through the field passing for second with one lap to go. With Wilson putting the pressure on, Donnie Danley was able to fend off the challenge to go on to pick up the $500 to win special and his first ever feature win in the truck division. Finishing second was Wilson, third went to Rolly Heyder, fourth Travis Hare and fifth went to Tim Morris.
With a field of twenty-three, it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley setting fast time in the Holmes Tire Late model division with a 14.346. Heat race winners were Vic Hottinger and “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel. Dash winner was Corey Conley with the last chance race win going to Cody Endlich.
Setting the pace for the feature event was Conley with Jeromy Misel on the outside. Jumping out front was Conley who would pull nearly a straight away lead over second before caution would come out with just three laps in, setting up a single file restart. With the green back out, Conley would once again take the top spot and advance his lead over the rest of the field. Meanwhile, working his way up from seventh, Vic Hottinger would take the fourth position from Hornikel with six laps to go. Nevertheless, finishing with a straight away lead over second and picking up yet another win on the season was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley. Rounding out the top five was Jeromy Misel, Shane McLoughlin, Vic Hottinger and Dave Hornikel.
Next out were the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a field of thirteen. Picking up heat race wins were Kyle Moore and John Wilson. However, rather than starting on the pole, Moore, who had a $200 bounty placed on him for anyone that could beat him in a feature event, would opt to start tail. With the field set, Kevin Potts would now bring the field to the green. Wilson, outside pole, would take the early lead off of four with one lap in the books. As Wilson maintained position, Kevin Potts and David Potts would battle it out for second. Furthermore, driving his way up to fourth was Kyle Moore who had set his sights on the front. However, caution would come out with six laps in, bunching the field up single file. Back under green, Wilson would again take the lead while Moore worked his way past Kevin Potts and ultimately Wilson. Unfortunately, just has he had gained the lead; Moore would suffer a flat tire bringing out the caution and ultimately having to restart tail. With racing action back under way, John Wilson would once again retain the lead and that is where he would remain going on to claim the $200 bounty and pick up his first feature win of the season. David Potts would finish second followed by Dustin Daugherty, Bob Chilcote and Kyle Moore, breaking into the top five after restarting tail.
The Hang Out in Danville modifieds were next to roll onto the track with a field of fifteen. Setting fast time for the night was Nathon Loney with a 15.304. Picking up a single heat race win was “The General” George Lee with DJ Cline winning the dash.
Leading the field down the backstretch, it was Cline setting the pace with Loney on the outside. As the green dropped, Loney would take the lead. However, an early caution would force a single file restart. Once again green, Loney would retain the top spot as a four way battle for second through fifth would ensue between DJ Cline, Jimmy Smith, Chris Basich and Bruce Takach. As the leaders worked their way through lap traffic, Basich would use it to his advantage and close in on Loney and the top spot. With the white flag in the air, Basich and Loney would battle side by side for the lead. Nevertheless, Danville’s own Nathon Loney would edge out over Basich for the win off of four. Finishing third, up from his eighth place starting position was Bruce Takach, fourth to DJ Cline and fifth went to Jimmy Smith.
The Rigz Towing modlites had a field of ten, with Tanner McLoughlin picking up the only heat race win, setting him on the pole for the night’s feature event. Coming to the green, it was McLoughlin out front with Clint Snyder and Larry Moran challenging one another for second. However, a flat for Moran would send him pit side during a caution brought out for Burkhead. Back under green, McLoughlin would again take the top spot and that is where he would remain picking up his first feature win in the modlite division. Second went to Clint Synder, third to Brian Stuhldreher, fourth to Tim Maharg and fifth Todd Swim.
The Short Track Fire & Rescue Mini Stock division had a field of eleven with heat race wins going to Tim Workman and Jerry Adkins. With the field set, the green was out and it was Adkins to the lead. Meanwhile, working his way through the field up to second was Edwin Geary. However, unable to surpass Adkins as he would go on to claim yet another feature victory. Finishing second was Geary followed by Nathan Rhoads, Tim Workman and Cierra Fry.

Conley and Smith Pick up Wins during Jim Dunn Qualifiers

Saturday night was filled with nonstop racing action as the third leg of the Jim Dunn Memorial qualifier mini series, sponsored by Jeremy Brehm at American Integrity Electric Supply in Newark, Ohio, made their stop at Hilltop Speedway. The Holmes Tire late models and the Hangout in Danville modifieds would not only have the opportunity to claim their spot in this years’ Jim Dunn Memorial on June 18, 2017 but also a chance to claim a $300 dash for cash in the late model division and a $150 dash for cash in the modifieds.

                Starting out the night’s events were the Hangout in Danville modifieds with a field of fifteen. Setting fast time was last week’s feature winner, Nathon Loney, with a time of 15.556. Heat race one winner was “The General” George Lee while “The Stalker” Jonathan Sluka claimed the $150 bonus for his dash win.

                With the field set, the green was out for their 25-lap, $1,000 to win Jim Dunn qualifier. As the green dropped, a three-wide battle for the lead between Sluka, Jimmy Smith and Nathon Loney would ensue coming off turn two. Taking the lead with one lap in was Smith, with Sluka all over his bumper. As Smith worked the high side, Sluka challenging the low line, the two would battle nearly side by side, lap after lap. Smith edging out for the lead at the line, Sluka was undeterred as he continued to battle back as the two would close in on lap traffic. Using lap traffic to his advantage, third place runner, Loney would close the gap on the top two. However, after losing handle between one and two, caution would come out bunching the field up single file. Back to green flag racing, Smith would again jump to the front followed by Sluka who would be challenged by Bruce Takach for second. Unfortunately, contact between the two would bring the yellow out once more and send Takach to the tail with a mere six laps to go. Once again under green, Smith would take the lead as Sluka worked the low line trying to work past Smith. As the two would round four, coming to the checkered, a side by side finish would ensue with “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith edging out for the $1,000 pay day and a guaranteed spot in the Jim Dunn Memorial. A hard fought second went to Jonathan Sluka, third to DJ Cline, forth to Chris Basich and fifth George Lee.

                Next to hit the track were the Holmes Tire late models with a field of twenty-three. Fast qualifier for the division was “Hammer Down” Doug Drown with a time of 13.892. Heat race winners were Shane McLoughlin and “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter. Picking up the $300 dash for cash was JR Gentry. The last chance race went to Vic Hottinger.

                Bringing the field to the start of their 30-lap, $2000 to win, it was JR Gentry and “Flyin” Ryan Markham front row. Taking an early lead with one lap in the books was Ryan Markham. Meanwhile, “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley would battle under Anthony Kinkade to take third. Conley, on the move, all over the bumper of Gentry, would look to secure second, doing so coming off of four with seven laps down. As the leaders began to work their way through lap traffic, Conley would take the lead from Markham as he would bobble with a lap car in turns one and two.  With the caution out, the field would bunch back up for a single file restart. Back under green with twenty-one laps to go, Conley would take advantage of the open track, retaining the lead, as the battle for second would ensue between JR Gentry and Markham. Once again, closing in on lap traffic, Conley would increase the gap between himself and second place, leaving Markham and Gentry to battle amongst themselves. Thus, going on to pick up the $2,000 to win feature and securing his position in the Jim Dunn Memorial race was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley followed by Ryan Markham, JR Gentry, Tyler Carpenter, with a last lap pass for fourth and Doug Drown.

                The Rigz Towing modlite division featured a field of six with a single heat race win going to Tanner McLoughlin setting him on the pole for the night’s feature event. With the green out, it was Tracy Fritter, from outside pole, taking the lead. From green to checkered, Fritter would maintain his position and add another win to his season. Finishing second was Tanner McLoughlin, third Clint Snyder, fourth Todd Swim and fifth Tim Maharg

                A field of eight made up the night’s Holmes Pest Control street stock division with Kyle Moore picking up the only heat race win. Rounding four to the start, pole sitter, Moore would take the early lead, looking to make it three for three on the season at the Hill. With Moore out front, caution would come out with a mere two laps to go, bunching the field back up and providing Kevin Potts an opportunity to make a move to the front. Back under green, Moore would again take the top spot as David Potts would challenge Kevin to take second with one to go. Nevertheless, going on to pick up this third win in a row was Kyle Moore followed by David Potts, Kevin Potts, Jason St. John and Mike McElravy.

                Rounding out the night was the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with a field of nine. Heat race winners were Jerry Adkins and Edwin Geary. As the green dropped, Geary would jump out front with Adkins looking in. Five laps down, Adkins would look to the inside of Geary, however, unable to make a pass. Lap for lap, Adkins would challenge Geary’s bumper. However, able to fend off multiple challenges to pick up his first win on the season was Edwin Geary. Second went to Jerry Adkins followed by Tim Workman, Michael Rose and Nathan Rhoads.

Blue Collar Race Series Qualifier Winners Kyle Moore and Wes Staley


After taking the past few weeks off, who could think of a better way to enjoy the holiday weekend than at the local dirt track? Making their way to Hilltop Speedway, was the Blue Collar Race Series featuring qualifier races in both the street stock and mini stock divisions, along with the  night’s regular racing events.
 Starting the night out, with their first appearance of the year, were the First Choice Stump Grinding and Trees mini wedges with a field of three in the Jr. Division and seven in the Sr. Division. In the Jr. Division, Connor Hess would pick up the only heat race win and would go on to battle it out with Brice Hague in the feature. Under green, Hess would take the lead with Hague all over his bumper. Hess would lose handle off of four, leaving the door open for Hague to take the lead. Hess would battle back, looking to the outside as they entered one and two. However, Hague did not let up, running side by side as they crossed the checkered, with Brice Hague picking up his first feature win.
In the Sr. Division, there were seven with Karyssa Beagle picking up the heat win. With the green out for their 10-lap feature, Beagle would take the early lead as Brooklyn Wilson and Reece Bollinger would go side by side for second when caution would come out forcing Wilson to the tail. Back green, Beagle again to the front, with five laps down Bollinger would work the bumper of Beagle for the lead. However, contact between the two would bring out the caution, placing Bollinger on the tail. Neverthless, fending off competitors and picking up her first win of the season was Karyssa Beagle, followed by Logan Duncan, Nick Large, Kyla Dillon and Brooklyn Wilson.
 Next to roll onto the track were the Holmes Tire late models with JR Gentry setting fast time with a 14.658 among 20 other competitors. Picking up heat race wins were Mike Basich and Ty Myers, while Jeromy Misel picked up the dash win.
 Bringing the field to the green, Misel would take an early lead, however, would also bring out the caution forcing him to restart tail. Bunching the field back up for a double file restart, Gentry would take the lead with Corey Conley on his bumper. Meanwhile, a battle for third would ensue between "Dangerous" Dave Hornikel and Mike Basich. As the leaders began to make their way through lap traffic, caution woud come out. Once again, under green, Gentry would take the lead as Craig Wolford woud work his way to third after an early caution placed him on the tail. As the laps dwindled, Conley searching for a way around Gentry although was unable to do so as it was JR Gentry taking the checkered to claim his first win of the season at Hilltop. Rounding out the top five was Conley, Craig Wolford, Dave Hornikel and Jeromy Misel.
 The Blue Collar Race Series featuring the Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of fifteen set to battle for their $1000 to win, with an additional $200 bounty if someone was able to beat the Tim Arnold owned, 11* of Kyle Moore. Heat race winners were Kyle Moore and Bob Daugherty.
 Setting the pace to the green, Moore would jump out front with Daugherty right on his bumper. Six laps in caution would come out, forcing the field to bunch back up single file for the restart. Back under green, Moore would again take the top spot as Dustin Daugherty would challenge Bob for second. Side by side, the Daughertys' battled it out with Dustin ultimately taking second off of four with three laps to go. Nevertheless, the bounty would go on unclaimed as Kyle Moore would add another win to the season followed by Dustin Daugherty, Bob Daugherty, John Wilson and Kevin Potts.
 The Hangout in Danville modifieds had a 12-car field with “The Stalker” Jonathan Sluka setting fast time with a 15.929. A single heat race win went to “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith with Nathon Loney claiming the dash win and the night’s pole position.
 With the field rounding four to the green, Loney would jump out to an early lead as “The General” George Lee would look to the outside. Fending off Lee’s charge off of two, Loney would maintain his lead as Bruce Takach challenged the bumper of Lee. Working up to lap traffic, Loney would advance his lead over the remaining field, going on to pick up his first win at the Hill this season. Second went to George Lee, third to Bruce Takach, fourth DJ Cline and fifth went to Chris Basich.
 The Blue Collar Race Series, featuring the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks had a field of nineteen with heat race wins going to Wes Staley, Matt Miller and John Schooler. Setting the pace to the green was Staley, who would jump out front as Miller and Schooler battled it out for second. Contact between the two would open the door for Dale Beckett and Colton St. John to take second and third. With Staley still out front, a four way battle for second would ensue when caution would come out with eight laps in. Bunched up for a single file restart, Staley would again take the top spot leaving Schooler to challenge Beckett for second. Looking to the inside, with thirteen laps down, Schooler would pass Beckett to claim second and set his sights on Staley. However, as laps dwindled, Wes Staley would maintain his position, going on to pick up the Blue Collar Race Series $500 to win qualifier and his first feature win at the Hill. Finishing second was John Schooler, third Dale Beckett, fourth Edwin Geary and fifth Colton St. John.
 The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a field of twelve with heat race wins going to “Wild Hare” Travis Hare and Rolly Heyder. With the field set, the green was out with Hare claiming the lead with Heyder looking in. Lap for lap, Heyder would challenge Hare, taking the lead off of four with six laps in. However it was short lived, as Hare would take back the top spot in turns one and two. Nevertheless, Heyder would again charge after a late restart, taking not only the top spot but claiming back to back wins as well. Finishing second was Travis Hare followed by Braxton Wilson, Mason Radcliff and Donnie Danley.
 Rounding out the night were the Rigz Towing modlites with a field of twelve. Heat race winners were Tanner McLoughlin and Tracy Fritter, setting the front row of the night’s final feature. Bringing the field to the green, McLoughlin would take the early lead as Fritter would work the outside looking to make his move to the front. With three laps in, Fritter would make his move and claim the top spot off of turn four and that is where he would remain picking up another feature win. Remaining top five went to Tanner McLoughlin, Clint Snyder, Joe Burkhead, and Bradley Boetcher.

“The Flying Ace” and “The Stalker” Pick up Season Opener Wins

            After many late nights in the garage, one could not have asked for a better day for the season opener at Hilltop Speedway, Millersburg. With fans filling the grand stands and 52 cars in the pits, racing action was underway for the first time of the 2017 season.

First to hit the track was the Holmes Tire late models with a field of ten. Fast qualifier for the division was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley with a time of 14.322. Heat race wins went to Conley and Craig Wolford, setting them on the front row for the first feature of 2017. 

With the field set, the first 20-lap feature of the season was underway. Jumping out front was Corey Conley as a battle for second ensured between Craig Wolford and JR Gentry. Back and forth, the two diced it out with Gentry all over the bumper of Wolford. Working the low line, Gentry would pass Wolford off of four for second with fifteen laps in. However, Gentry would lose handle and hit the wall bringing out the caution just a mere lap later, ending his night. Back under green with four laps to go, Conley would again take the top spot as “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel would work his way to second. As the first checkered of the season dropped it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley picking up just where he left off in victory lane. Rounding out the top five was Hornikel, Craig Wolford, Brad Mickley, and Ty Myers.

Joining the list of sponsors this season; Danville’s The Hang Out sponsored modifieds had a field of eight. Qualifying with a 15.693 and claiming fast time was Casey Fritz. Picking up wins in each of the two heat race were Nathon Loney and “The Stalker” Jonathan Sluka.

Rounding four to the green, Loney and Sluka front row, it was “The Stalker” who would take the early lead. Working the outside, it was “The Taboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith who would drive around Loney to claim second setting his sights on the leader. Meanwhile, a three-way battle for third would ensue between Loney, Bruce Takach and Casey Fritz with Takach ultimately claiming third with nine laps in. Moreover, troubles for front runner Nathon Loney, as he would have to pull it into the infield ending his night. Nevertheless, after leading every lap to the checkered it was “The Stalker” Jonathan Sluka picking up his first win of the 2017 season. Sluka was followed by Jimmy Smith, Bruce Takach, Casey Fritz and Michael Lonas Jr.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of seven with the single heat race win going to Kyle Moore. Setting the pace to the start was Moore with Chilcote outside. Taking the top spot as the green dropped was Moore taking the top spot, as fourth place starter, Bob Daugherty, would split Bob Chilcote and Dustin Daugherty to take second going into turn two. Not deterred, Dustin Daugherty would battle back looking to the inside of Bob for the second position, but unable to capitalize as the checkered waved and it was Kyle Moore sitting in victory lane.  Rounding out the top five was Bob Daugherty, Dustin Daugherty, David Potts and Kevin Potts.

The Rigz Towing modlites had a field of seven. The lone heat race winner was Doug Jones placing him on the pole for the night’s feature event. As the green dropped, Jones would take the early lead. Pulling a straight away lead over the rest of the field with five laps to go, Jones would go on to pick up his first career feature win at Hilltop Speedway. Second was Cody Stillion followed by Todd Swim, Bobby Springer and Justin Eddy.

 The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had field of six with “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson picking up the heat race win. After a caution filled start, the green was out and it was the youngster, Wilson, leading the field. A close second, looking to make his way to the front was Rolly Heyder. Lap for lap, the two would battle it out with Heyder taking the lead off turn four with six laps in.  With two to go the yellow would come out, bunching the field up and allowing Wilson an opportunity at the lead. However, he was unable to as it was Heyder picking up the checkered and his thirtieth feature win at the Hill. Second went to Wilson, third Tim Morris, fourth Chris Asbury and fifth Mason Radcliff.

Rounding out the night and picking up a new sponsor for the year, the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks had the largest field of the night with fourteen cars. Picking up wins in each of the two heat races were Jordan James and John Schooler. With the field set, the green was out and it was Schooler to the lead. Meanwhile, a battle for second would ensure between front runners Jordan James and Dale Beckett. Contact, as Beckett, looked to the inside of James, however, James was able to fend off and maintain his position. As the field began to work their way through lap traffic, leader, John Schooler would advance over competitors. However, trouble would strike as Schooler would slow coming off four to the checkered allowing James to get by and pick up the win with a mere 0.179 difference in finishes. Finishing third was Dale Beckett followed by Matt Miller and Edwin Geary.

“The Flying Ace” Caps off Season with 3rd Annual Holmes Tire Late Model Invitational Win

                After mother nature decided to shorten the annual weekend on the Hill, Hilltop owner, Buck Smitley, decided to finish the season on a better note by adding a make-up race including the 3rd Annual Holmes Tire Late model invitational paying $2,500 to win, sponsored by the Hershberger family, trick or treat for the kids and an appearance by the Midwest Midget Series sprints.

            Starting off the night’s events were the Bugs-R-Gone truck division with the largest count of the season with twelve. Heat race winners were “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson and Cole Lillibridge, setting the front row for feature event.

Setting the pace to the green was Wilson who would jump out to an early lead over second of Lillibridge. However, red flag conditions would stop the race as Lillibridge truck caught fire and had to be sent off pit side. Back under green, it was again Wilson to the front. As the top three, Wilson, Tim Lillibridge, and John Large singled out, “Wild Hare” Travis Hare would make his move from the back of the pack back up to fourth. Nevertheless, picking up the win after leading lap for lap was “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson followed by Tim Lillibridge, John Large, Travis Hare and Chris Asbury.

            Rolling out onto the track next were the Holmes Tire late models with a field of thirty-three. Setting fast time among the field was “Flyin” Ryan Markham with a 14.323. Each of three heat race wins went to Kyle Moore, Vic Hottinger, and “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley. The dash win was claimed by Markham placing him on the pole for the night’s 30-lap 3rd Annual Holmes Tire late model invitational. Last chance race wins went to Wayne Maffet and Rick Mardis.

            Bringing the field down the back stretch to the start of their 30-lap feature was Markham. As the field came off of two, it was Shane McLoughlin who would take the lead with Markham second. With the top two pulling away, caution would come out forcing the field to bunch back up for the restart. Back green, McLoughlin would retain the lead as JR Gentry would challenge Markham on the bottom for the second place position. Working through lap traffic, the battle continued as Markham would make contact with the wall allowing not only Gentry but “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley to get by as well. However, short lived as Conley would obtain second from Gentry and set his sights on McLoughlin a caution would once again fly with fourteen laps in the books. With racing action underway, Conley would pull a slider coming off of two to ultimately claim the lead as lap fifteen went in the books. Nevertheless, McLoughlin not backing down, would charge hard into one looking to get under Conley, unfortunately he would make contact with the tire and spin out bringing the caution back out. Single filed, back green, Conley would again take the lead and pull away from the remainder of the field as he would go on to claim the Hershberger sponsored $2,500 to win Holmes Tire late model invitational. Rounding out the top five were Ryan Markham, DJ Cline, Brad Malcuit and Ty Myers.

The Midwest Midget series sprint cars made their first appearance of the year with a car count of five. The single heat race win went to Aaron Leffel. With the green out, it was Leffel to the front and that is where he would remain leading every lap and going on to pick up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was John Watson, Johnny Star, Clayton Mullett and Chad Hyatt.

Setting fast time among nineteen John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds was “The Stalker” Johnathan Sluka with a time of 15.464. Heat race winners were Larry Moran and Nathon Loney with the dash win going to Chris Basich.

            Coming to the green, it was pole sitter, Chris Basich who would take the early lead. A close second, was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse, who would work the high side and take the lead off of two. However, caution would come out forcing Morehouse to fall back to second for the restart. Once back under green, Basich would again take the top spot with Morehouse edging, looking for a way to the front. Meanwhile, “The Stalker” Jon Sluka, would make his presence known as he would go side by side with Morehouse for second. However, Morehouse, set on the top spot, would continuing working the high side and ultimately take the lead from Basich off of turn four with seventeen laps in the books. Remaining out front, going on to add another win on the season was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse. He was followed by Chris Basich, Nathon Loney, Jonathan Sluka and Jesse Wardell.

            The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of eighteen with Kyle Moore setting fast time with a 16.227. Picking up a heat race win each was Bob Daugherty and Tim Penley with David Potts winning the dash. 

            Coming off of four to the green it was David Potts who would take an early lead with Bob Daugherty and Kyle Moore battling on his bumper for a close second. However, caution would come out, resulting in Moore changing a tire and having to restart tail. With racing action back underway, Potts would again take the top spot with Daugherty right on his bumper. Working Potts, Daugherty would then take the lead off of four with eight laps in. As the laps dwindled, Daugherty would work his way through lap traffic, advancing his lead over the field and going on to pick up the win. A close second went to John Wilson, third to David Potts; back up to fourth after restarting tail was Kyle Moore and fifth was Dustin Daugherty.

The Rigz Towing modlites were next to roll onto the track with a field of twenty-one. Heat race winners were Dillon Rittenhouse, Joey Dingus and Ray Leslie. With the field set the green was out and it was Rittenhouse and Dingus front row heading into turn one. Yet, starting fourth, no stranger to the top spot was Tracy Fritter who would obtain the top spot and that is where he would remain. Fending off competitors, advancing almost a full second lead over the rest of the field to pick up yet another win on the season was Tracy Fritter. Fritter was followed by Ray Leslie, Joey Dingus, Dillon Rittenhouse and cracking the top five after starting ninth was Clint Snyder.

            With a field of nineteen, the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks featured two heat races with wins going to Matt Miller and Terry Adkins. Bringing the field to the start, the green was out on their 12-lap feature event. Jumping out front was pole sitter, Matt Miller, who would fend off competitors to go on to pick up another feature win on the season. Second went to Jerry Adkins, third Brad Hensel, fourth Travis Tice and fifth was Dale Beckett.

Packed House for the Last Race of the Season

            As the season comes to an end, unfavorable weather conditions would shorten the annual weekend on the hill to a single night of racing. With a packed house and one of the largest car counts of the season for Friday night’s events, fans were in for a full night of racing action, including the first appearance by the flat track karts.

Starting off the night were the JPR Auto & Tire mini wedges with a field of eleven. Heat race winners were Brooklyn Wilson in the Jr. Class and Reece “The Beast” Bollinger in the Sr. Class. With the green out for the Jr. Class, it was Wilson who would jump out front early with Hutchinson a close second. After a restart, Wilson would look to take the inside line, however, Hutchinson was already there. The two would go down the back stretch side by side with Hutchinson ultimately taking the lead off of turn four. “The Dirt Devil” would fend off Wilson’s charge to pick up another win on the season followed by Timmy Glassburn, Jason Wright, Kaylana Hare. In the Sr. Class, it was Bollinger bringing the field to the start. However, troubles as he would fall back through the field. Meanwhile, Karyssa Beagle would overtake Stafford to take the lead on lap one and that is where she would remain fending off competitors to pick up the feature win. Beagle was followed by Donnie Danley, Zoe Stafford, Reece Bollinger and Kyla Dillon.

Running for the first time on the season, the flat karts had a field of eleven. With two heats, winners were Landon Wetzel and Daryl Conkle. Bringing the field to the green was Wetzel, who would jump out to an early lead. As the top five singled out, Brandon Gardner would make a pass to take second with six laps in. Nevertheless, remaining out front, leading lap for lap and picking up the feature win was Landon Wetzel. Brandon Gardner was second followed by Daryl Conkle, Jack Lamborn, Coty Conway.

There was a full field of thirty Holmes Tire late models with “Hammer Down” Doug Drown setting fast time with a 13.755. Heat race winners were Vic Hottinger, Kyle Moore and Stephen Prince with “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley claiming the dash win. The last chance win went to Michael Davis.

            Coming to the green, it was “The Flying Ace” setting the pace and taking the top spot. Meanwhile, JR Gentry and Doug Drown would both go to work on “Flyin” Ryan Markham on the low side ultimately passing to claim second and third. With Gentry challenging, working his bumper, Conley would attempt to retain his position, doing so as the caution would fly with only eight laps in the books. Back under green, Conley would once again claim the top spot. With seventeen laps down, the leader began negotiating lap traffic as Drown used the high side to try to reel in second of JR Gentry, however, unable to do so. Nevertheless, after leading green to checker, picking up yet another win at the Hill this season it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley. Rounding out the top five was JR Gentry, Doug Drown, Ryan Markham and Vic Hottinger.

The John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modified division had a field of twenty-one. Setting fast time, as one of the last cars to qualify, was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse with a 15.217. Casey Fritz and Rex Slaughter each picked up a heat race win with Kyle Brown claiming the dash win.

            Bringing the field down the backstretch, Kyle Brown would take the top spot as the green dropped. However, Brown would soon be challenged by “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse who would take to the high side of Brown. Side by side down the backstretch, Morehouse would ultimately claim the lead off of turn four with a mere six laps in the books. Lap for lap, “The Logger” would begin working his way through lap traffic, advancing his lead as the battle for second between Brown and DJ Cline heated up. Thus, unable to be surpassed, picking up another win on the season was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse. With the victor in the books, stake on second was up for grabs as Brown and Cline battled, side by side off of turn four to the checker with Kyle Brown edging out over Cline. Finishing fourth was Jimmy Smith with Casey Fritz finishing fifth.

            Rolling onto the track next were the Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks with a field of nineteen. Picking up the dash win as well as fast time was Kyle Moore, in the Lonas owned #11A, with a time of 16.553. Heat race wins went to Bob Chilcote and Kevin Potts.

            With the feature line up set, the green was out and it was Kyle Moore taking the early lead. A close second, looking to the inside, was Bob Daugherty challenging the bumper of Moore. However, trouble, as Daugherty would make contact with the tire in turn four with only three laps in the book causing him to fall back positions, ultimately taking it pitside. Moreover, front runner Brandon Gardner would also have troubles ending his night early. Once again under green, Moore would retain the top spot as John Wilson worked the bumper looking to claim the win. Nevertheless, able to fend off Wilson while leading lap for lap it was Kyle Moore picking up the win followed by Wilson, Gary Hensel, David Potts and Bob Chilcote.

            The Rigz Towing modlites also made an appearance this weekend with a 9-car field. A single heat race win went to Ray Leslie, placing him on the pole of their 12-lap feature. With the green out, Leslie would take the top spot, however short lived as Joey Anderson would pass and take the lead as troubles for Leslie would drop him out of the top five. Meanwhile, working their way up from their fifth and seventh place starting positions, to do battle for second was Tanner McLoughlin and Clint Snyder. As Snyder used the low side to pass for second, McLoughlin would return the favor and regain his position. Nevertheless, getting out front and never looking back was the #10 of Joey Anderson, adding another win on his season. Anderson was followed by Tanner McLoughlin, Clint Snyder, Rory Reed and Levi Lease.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had their largest count of the season with thirteen. Heat race winners were Travis Winterringer and Cole Lillibridge, setting them on the front row for the night’s feature event. As they approached the green, the battle was on between Winterringer and Lillibridge for the top spot. However, contact between the two would ultimately bring out the caution forcing Winterringer to restart tail and ending the night early for Lillibridge. Back under green, it was the youngster of the division, “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson who would take the top spot. Fending off challenges by Jerry Gardner as the two worked through lap traffic, Wilson would retain the top spot and go on to end his 2016 season with a win. Finishing second was Jerry Gardner, third Travis Hare, fourth John Large and fifth Dwayne Powell.

The Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stock division had full field of cars with twenty-seven set to do battle. Heat race winners were Mike Barr, Gary Hensel, Tony Mullinnex and Jordan James. Rounding out night’s features, picking up his first win on the season it was Jordan James followed by Mike Barr, Gary Hensel, Jerry Adkins and season points champion Colton St. John.

Points Season Comes to an End as 2016 Champions were Named As the 2016 points season comes to an end at Hilltop Speedway, there were 100 drivers entered in the pits to make one final attempt at the championship. Eleven JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges were signed in and ready to compete in the last regular season race of the year. Setting the pace for the night’s feature in the junior class was heat race winner Rilee Hutchinson. With the green out it was Hutchinson to the front. Splitting wedges on the front stretch to take second was Brooklyn Wilson. Nevertheless, able to fend off the challenges by Wilson going on to pick up his first feature win was “The Dirt Devil” Rilee Hutchinson. Third went to Colten Roeder, fourth to Conner Hess and fifth to Timmy Glassburn. With her second place finish, picking up the Jr. wedge championship was Brooklyn Wilson. The senior class featured two heat races with wins going to Reece Bollinger and Brayden Renfrew, setting them on the front row for the night. Jumping out to the front was Bollinger as battle for positions ensued behind him. Working the inside was Zoe Stafford and Karyssa Beagle to take second and third. However, troubles for Beagle forcing her to restart tail. Back under green, Bollinger would again take the top spot with Stafford second. Making her way back up through the field to reclaim fourth was Beagle. Yet, after leading every lap, going on to pick up the win and the 2016 Sr. points championship was Reece “The Beast” Bollinger followed by Zoe Stafford, Logan Duncan, Karyssa Beagle and Donnie Danley. The Holmes Tire late model division had a field of twenty with “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley setting fast time with a 14.591. Heat race winners were Tye Myers and Rick Mardis with Vic Hottinger picking up the dash. With the green out for their 25-lap feature, pole sitter Hottinger would go side by side with “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel down the front stretch into turn one, with the drive off of two Hornikel would claim the lead. A close third, Corey Conley, would look to secure second from Hottinger and would ultimately do so coming off turn four. Meanwhile, the battle for third would ensue between Hottinger, Shane McLoughlin and Kyle Moore with McLoughlin taking third after a caution bunched the field back up for the restart. Back under way, a battle for the lead between front runner, Hornikel, and Conley. Hornikel running the high side as Conley worked the bottom. The two would go side by side working through lap traffic. Conley with a slide job would take the lead off of turn two. However, Hornikel would cross back under Conley to regain the lead coming off of four. With Hornikel back out front, it was McLoughlin using lap traffic to his advantage to reel in Conley and secure the pass off of two to take second. McLoughlin now looking in at Hornikel would attempt to take the lead, although unable to do so. Able to fend off competitors and pick up the win was “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel followed by McLoughlin, Corey Conley, Kyle Moore and Vic Hottinger. Clinching the 2016 points championship was Vic Hottinger. Setting fast time among thirteen John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds was DJ Cline with a 15.496. A single heat race win went to David Hittle with Larry Moran winning the dash, placing him on the pole for the night’s feature. With Moran setting the pace to the green, outside pole sitter, Tom Hagberg would jump out to an early lead. However, it was short lived as DJ Cline would challenge Hagberg. Lap for lap, the two battled with Cline edging out and taking the lead on lap four. With Cline out front, a heated battle between Hagberg and “The Stalker” Jon Sluka ensued for second. However, caution would come out as there was contact between Hagberg and Sluka, forcing Sluka to restart tail. Back under green, with two laps to go, it again was DJ Cline to the front and now third place Jimmy Smith looking in at Hagberg. Just as Smith would claim second, caution would fly once more do to debris. Lined back up for a green, white, checker finish, Cline would once again take the lead and that is where he would remain picking up the night’s win. Rounding out the top five was Tom Hagberg, Jimmy Smith, Larry Moran and Denny Benjamin. With a two point lead, after his seventh place finish, it was “Rockin” Robin Duston picking up the 2016 points championship. Seventeen entries would make up the Rigz Towing modlite division where Aaron Meister and Brian Stuhldreher each picked up heat race wins. With the field set, the green was out and Meister would take the top spot while Tracy Fritter would make his way to second. Fritter, all over the bumper of Meister, looking to add to his wins for the seasons, would ultimately take the lead on lap eight as the two began working through lap traffic. With two to go caution would fly, bunching the field up once more for restart. Back under green, contact going into turn one would bring out the red as Joey Anderson would roll. Given the red flag situation, the race was checkered and it was Tracy Fritter picking up the win followed by Aaron Meister, Brian Stuhldreher, Clint Snyder and Jason Darocha. With his fourth place finish, Clint Snyder is the 2016 season champion for the modlite division. The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a 14-car field with Mike Lonas setting fast time with a 16.581. The only heat race was won by Trae Schonauer as Bob Daugherty picked up the dash. After a short rain delay and Daugherty opting not to run the feature, it was John Wilson setting the pace to the green coming off of four. Out to an early lead was Wilson with Mike Lonas on his bumper looking in. Lap for lap, Lonas would look for a way around Wilson. As the two begin to work through lap traffic, Lonas would gain on Wilson. However, trouble for Lonas as he makes contact with the wall in turns one and two. Nevertheless, after leading green to checker it was John Wilson going on and pick up the win. Wilson was followed by Mike Lonas, David Potts, Kevin Potts and Bob Chilcote. The Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks had a field of seventeen with Nathan Rhodes and Derek Davis each picking up a heat race win. With Rhodes on point the green was out for their 12-lap feature event. Taking the top spot was Derek Davis with Colton St. John not far behind. Side by side, Davis and St. John, would make contact bringing out the caution and forcing Davis to restart tail. Back under green, it was St. John to the lead as Matt Miller, up to second from fifth, would look to take the top spot. However, he was unable to capitalize as it was Colton St. John going on to add another win onto his season and ultimately claiming the 2016 points season championship. Finishing second was Miller followed by Edwin Geary, Jerry Adkins and John Ohse. Rounding out the night were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with a field of eight. Heat race winner was Travis Winterringer placing him on the pole for their feature event. As the green came out, it was Winterringer to the front with Travis Hare a close second. Meanwhile, working his way up to the bumper of Hare from his fifth place starting position was “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson. As Wilson went to work on Hare, the two would go side by side for laps on the bumper of Winterringer. With a drive off of four, Wilson would claim second and go to work on the bumper of Winterrringer. Attempting to fend off the challenges, Winterringer would ultimately fall back to second as it was Braxton Wilson going on to pick up another win on the season. Finishing third was Travis Hare, fourth Chris Asbury and fifth Dwayne Powell. Claiming the 2016 championship was John Large.

Conley No Stranger to Victory Lane

As the race season is coming to an end, what better way to spend it then with the family at Hilltop Speedway for Kid’s night including prize giveaways.

The JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges had a total field of twelve, four in the nine and younger class and eight in the ten and older class. The nine and under class had one heat with the win going to Brooklyn Wilson. With Brooklyn on point, the green was out and to the lead she went. Looking in for a way to the front was Rilee Hutchinson. However, unable to do so as it was Brooklyn Wilson who would lead every lap and pick up yet another feature win on the season. She was followed by Rilee Hutchinson, Levi Crider, and a track visitor. The ten and older class featured two heats with wins going to Reece “The Beast” Bollinger and Zoe Stafford. With the green out, it was Bollinger jumping out front with Nick Large in pursuit. Lap for lap, Large would put the pressure on Bollinger, searching for a way to the front. Nevertheless, Bollinger would be able to fend of Large’s advances and go on to claim the win. Second was Nick Large followed by Zoe Stafford, Evan Large and Brayden Renfrew.

Rolling onto the track the Holmes Tire late models had a field of twenty. Picking up heat race wins were “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel, Vic Hottinger and Kyle Moore.

Bringing the field to the start of their 25-lap feature event was Hornikel, who would take an early lead with Hottinger running second. Making his way to the front, working under DJ Cline to take third was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley. With Conley on a mission to the front, he would ensue in an epic top three battle. As Hornikel and Hottinger diced back and forth, Conley would make his way to go side by side with Hottinger when caution would come out forcing a single file restart. Back to racing action, Hornikel would again jump out front as Hottinger and Conley would go side by side on his bumper. Hottinger edging out would get the drive off of turn four to work his way around Hornikel to take the lead on lap nine. After taking the lead, Hottinger would push up the track in turn two, allowing Hornikel to take back the lead. Nevertheless, caution would fly before a lap would complete, restarting single file with Hottinger back on point. Once again green, Hottinger would take the lead as Conley worked his way around Hornikel to take second and look to take the top spot. With Conley on his bumper, Hottinger would work the highside while Conley went low reeling Hottinger in to take the lead down the backstretch. However, caution would once again come out, resorting to last completed lap with Hottinger again to the lead. Twelve laps down, the green was back out, Hottinger went to the front once more while Conley went to work on the bottom reeling Hottinger in, ultimately passing for the lead with seventeen laps in the books. Working through lap traffic, Conley would advance his lead over the field going on to pick up yet another win on the season. Rounding out the top five was Vic Hottinger, Dave Hornikel, DJ Cline and Rick Mardis.

The John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds had a field of fifteen with “Easy E” Eric Singhaus and David Hittle each claiming a heat race win.

The field was set with Singhaus on the pole and Hittle outside. The green was out and a battle for the top spot began with Hittle taking the early lead as Bruce Takach and Singhaus went door to door for second. However, trouble for Singhaus as he would spin and take it through the infield bringing out the caution. Back under green, Hittle again jumped out front leaving Takach to battle it out with Larry Moran for second. Takach running the high groove with Moran down low, the two would go lap for lap when caution would fly once again. Once more under green, Hittle would take to the lead, however, this time challenged by Takach. Hittle would continue to run the high line with Takach down low, side by side, Hittle would have the drive off of four to the finish, fending off Takach to pick up his first feature win of the season. Finishing second was Bruce Takach, third Larry Moran, fourth Jon Sluka and fifth Bob Page.

A field of fourteen made up the Holmes Pest Control street stock division where David Potts and Kevin Potts picked up a heat race win each.

Setting the pace to the green was a father/son front row it was David Potts to the font with Kevin second. A side by side battle for third would begin between Mike Lonas and Brandon Welker, with Welker claiming the position. Meanwhile, Jason St. John would begin to work the low side of Lonas for fourth. Also working his way through the field from the tail and up to sixth was Bob Chilcote. David Potts still in command, Lonas would again battle Welker to take third but not unchallenged as Chilcote was on his bumper also looking to take third. Nevertheless, after leading green to checker to pick up the win was David Potts followed by Kevin Potts, Mike Lonas, Bob Chilcote and Brandon Welker.

The Rigz Towing modlites had a field of ten. Picking up heat one was Ray Leslie with heat two going to Joey Anderson. As Leslie brought the field to the start of their 12-lap feature event it was Joey Anderson who would jump out front. A close second, working the bumper of Anderson was Leslie, who would gain on Anderson and ultimately dive to the bottom coming off of two to pass Anderson for the lead. With Leslie to the front, Larry Moran would begin to set his sights on second of Anderson. Unfortunately, Anderson would spin coming off of four sending him to the tail for the restart. With racing action back underway, Leslie would again take the lead and that is where he would remain picking up the win. Top five was Tim Maharg, Clint Snyder, Jeff Hart and Joey Anderson.

The Short Track Fire & Rescue mini stocks had a 15-car field with heat race wins going to Colton St. John and Michael Rose. Bringing the field to the green was pole sitter Colton St. John as the field went into turn three contact between St. John and Rose would bring out the caution and force both of them to the pits for the night. With the field reset, it would place Edwin Geary on the pole with Tim Workman outside. Racing action back underway, Geary would jump to the front while the battle for second ensued between Workman and John Ohse. Also working his way up through the field, after having to restart tail, was Jerry Adkins who would make it a three way battle for second. Adkins, splitting Workman and Ohse, would take second off of turn four. However, as laps dwindled Edwin Geary remained out front picking up the win. Geary was followed by Jerry Adkins, John Ohse, Tim Workman and Tony Mullinnex.

            Concluding the night’s events were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with a field of eight. Picking up the single heat race was Travis Winterringer placing him on the pole for the nights feature event. With the field set, front row, Travis Winterringer and John Large, would battle side by side for the lead. Winterringer would choose the low line as Large went high, back and forth the two would go with Large ultimately taking the lead off of turn two. Regardless, of the charges by Winterringer, Large would remain out front to pick up the win. Second went to Travis Winterringer, third to Travis Hare, fourth to Tim Lillibridge and fifth Braxton Wilson.

Brandon Sheppard Picks up Win during Stars Series Buckeye Dirt Week

What a better way to spend a Thursday night than at the races watching some of the best dirt late model drivers around. With the Stars series dirt late models set to invade Hilltop Speedway for night six of their 2nd Annual Buckeye Dirt Week featuring a $3,000 to win.

Starting the night off was the Stars series late models with a field of 32. After four qualifying groups, it was Brandon Sheppard setting fast time overall with a 14.332. Heat race winners were “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel, Brandon Sheppard, Shane McLoughlin and “Hammer Down” Doug Drown. Winner of the last chance race was Jeromy Misel.

            With the field set after the redraw, it was “Hammer Down” Drown on pole with “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel outside. With the green out for their $3,000 to win, 30-lap feature event, Drown and Hornikel would go side by side into turns one and two with Hornikel edging out front at the line. In addition, battle would ensue as JR Gentry and “Flyin” Ryan Markham would go door to door for third. Meanwhile, working his way from seventh to challenge both Gentry and Markham was Brandon Sheppard. As Doug Drown would take the lead from Hornikel with five laps in the books, Sheppard would look to the low side and around Hornikel for second. With the field making work of lap traffic, Drown would advance his lead over Sheppard, as “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley worked his way through the field to third from his eight place starting position. However, caution would come out with nine laps down as Michael Davis with a flat would choose to go pit side. Lined back up for the restart, the green would come out and Drown would again retain the top spot as Sheppard worked his back bumper looking to take the lead. At the halfway mark, Sheppard looked to challenge Drown. Side by side the two went down the front stretch with Sheppard taking the lead on lap sixteen. Out front, Sheppard would begin to pull away from the field as Conley pressured Drown for second, yet unable to capitalize as the checkered was out. Thus, picking up the $3,000 win for night six of the Stars series Buckeye Dirt Week was none other than Brandon Sheppard. Rounding out the top five was Doug Drown, Corey Conley, JR Gentry and Dave Hornikel.

With a field of eighteen, the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds were the next to roll onto the track. Setting fast time was “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver with a time of 15.282. Picking up a heat race win each was “Rockin” Robin Duston and Jimmy Smith while it was “The Stalker” Jon Sluka claiming the dash win.

            Bringing the field down the backstretch to the green was Sluka with “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse outside. Jumping out to the initial lead it was “The Stalker” with Morehouse and Nathon Loney looking in. Lap for lap, Morehouse, looking to the high side, searched for a way around Sluka. With seven laps in, the field began working through lap traffic, Sluka down low while the “The Logger” remained up top attempting, to reel in the #21J. However, unable to do so as it was “The Stalker” Jon Sluka who would fend off the challengers and go on to pick up his second feature at the Hill for the season. Second went to Kevin Morehouse, third to Nathon Loney, fourth to “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver and fifth to “Rockin” Robin Duston.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of nineteen for the night. With three heat races, wins went to David Potts, Mike Lonas and Brandon Gardner.

            Potts, sitting pole, would bring the field to the green with Mike Lonas jumping out front early. However, multiple cautions would mix up the line up before a single lap was in the books. Reset, with John Wilson on the pole and Lonas outside, the field was back under green and it was Lonas once again to the front with Wilson second. After five laps in the books, Lonas would begin working through lap traffic. Fending off Wilson, to remain out front and go on to pick up the McKenzie Concrete sponsored $1,000 to win was Mike Lonas followed by John Wilson, David Potts, Brandon Gardner and Steve Wolford.

Rounding out the night were the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks with a field of thirteen. Picking up the heat race wins were Michael Workman and Nova Martin.

            Setting the pace to the green, it was Workman who would jump out front and take the early lead. Meanwhile, battle for position would ensue between Nova Martin and Jerry Adkins for second. That was until Matt Miller went to the bottom side to make it a three way battle for position. With Martin reclaiming second, the competition would continue as Colton St. John would work his way into the battle for third spot. However, caution would come out and troubles for Jerry Adkins would force him pit side for the remainder. Back under green, Workman would again claim the top spot as Miller worked his way to second. With a single lap to go, Miller would challenge Workman for the lead. Down the front stretch, to the checker, unable to surpass as it was Michael Workman going on to pick up his first feature win of the season. Workman was followed by Matt Miller, Colton St. John, Kevin Markey and Wes Staley.

Davis Repeats Visit to Victory Lane

It was a perfect, summer, Saturday night for a little dirt track racing on the Hill with all seven divisions seeing action.

The JPR Auto & Tire wedges had a total of fourteen youngsters ready and eager to take the track.

The nine and under class had a single heat race with the win going to “The Dirt Devil” Rilee Hutchinson. With their feature set, it was Hutchinson to the front with Brooklyn Wilson right on his bumper. As Wilson looked for a way around Hutchinson he would lose handle on the front stretch bringing out the caution and forcing him to restart tail. Back under green, Wilson would take the top spot and that is where she would remain picking up back to back win followed by Rilee Hutchinson and Caden Wylie.

The ten and older class had two heat races with wins going to Nick Large and Jason Wright.  After a caution filled race, the green was out and it was Large to the front with Reece Bollinger a close second. Nevertheless, able to fend off challenges from Bollinger, it was Nick Large who would go on to pick up the feature win followed by Reece Bollinger, Donnie Danley, Kyla Dillon and Billy Dawson.

The Holmes Tire late models had a field of fifteen with Shane McLoughlin setting fast time with a 14.420. A single heat race win went Rick Mardis as Rick Conley won the dash.

With Conley setting the pace to the green, he and last week’s feature winner Michael Davis would go side by side down the front stretch into turn one with Davis edging out to the lead when caution would come out. Unfortunately, the return to green flag racing would be delayed due to a track light malfunction. However, quick actions from the track officials got the lights back on and the race was back under way. With Davis reclaiming the lead Conley would work the bottom trying to find a way around him when caution would once again come out bunching the field up. Back under green, Davis would again take the top spot, while battle for position ensued behind. Making a move, looking under Conley to claim second was Craig Wolford. Although short lived as Shane McLoughlin would make a hard charge late to not only pass Conley and ultimately around Wolford as they worked through lap traffic. Nevertheless, remaining out front and going on to claim back to back victories was Michael Davis. Rounding out the top five was Shane McLoughlin, Craig Wolford, Rick Mardis and Vic Hottinger.

The John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds had a fast time of 15.340 set by “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse among a field of fourteen. Picking up the heat win was “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith while “Batman” Scott Peltz picked up the dash win.

On the pole, bringing the field to the green was Peltz and Moran front row, with Moran taking the lead. Meanwhile, “The Logger” would work the high side around Peltz for second, setting his sights on the bumper of Moran for the lead. After working Moran, Morehouse would dive under Moran off of turn four to take the lead. With Morehouse advancing his lead over the field, “Rockin” Robin Duston would be making his way through the field from his eighth place starting position to challenge Peltz for fourth. Despite Duston’s charge, it was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse who would go on to pick up another win on the season. Second went to Larry Moran followed by Bruce Takach, Robin Duston and Scott Peltz.

It was Mike Lonas setting fast time among twelve Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a time of 16.995; he would also pick up the dash win. A single heat race win went to Jason St. John.

With the field set, it was Mike Lonas who would jump out front early. However, caution would fly before getting a lap in, restarting the field, double file. Once again under green, Lonas would jump out front with Bob Chilcote second. In addition, battle for third would ensue between Kevin Potts and John Wilson. As Lonas, extended his lead over the field, Potts and Wilson would go back and forth for position with Wilson ultimately claiming third. Nevertheless, leading every lap, green to checkered, picking up another win on the season was Mike Lonas. Second went to Bob Chilcote, third John Wilson, fourth Kevin Potts and fifth David Potts.

The Rigz Towing modlite division had a ten car field. Each of two heat race wins went to Joe Burkhead and Ray Leslie, placing the two on the front row of the night’s feature event. With the green out, it was pole sitter, Burkhead, to the lead with Leslie challenging. Lap after lap, the two would battle for position Burkhead edging out each lap. However, after taking the white flag, Leslie would pull a last lap pass to take not only the lead but claim the win as well, his first career feature win at the hill. Second went to Joe Burkhead, third to Tanner McLoughlin, fourth to Clint Snyder and fifth to Joey Anderson.

A field of thirteen made up the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with Jerry Adkins and Matt Miller each claiming a heat race win. Bringing the field to the start, it was Miller who would jump out to an early lead. With laps dwindling, the field would single out with Miller out front. Meanwhile, Jerry Adkins running the bumper of Colton St. John would look to make a last lap pass off of turn four to take second. Nevertheless, going on to pick up his second feature victory of the season was Matt Miller followed by Jerry Adkins, Colton St. John, Edwin Geary and Tyler Parsons. 

Rounding out the night’s events were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with the largest field of the season. Heat race winners were John Large and Tim Lillibridge. With the field set, Large and Lillibridge would go side by side for the lead with Large edging out front. Meanwhile, the battle for third would ensue between Kevin Davis and Josey Lillibridge with Lillibridge looking under Davis as caution would come out. Unfortunately, while still under yellow, leader John Large would have troubles forcing him to retire to the pits early. With five laps to go, the green was back out and it was Tim Lillibridge out front and again the battle would ensue between Davis and Josey Lillibridge. Nevertheless, going on to pick up another win on the season was Tim Lillibridge. Rounding out the top five was Kevin Davis, Josey Lillibridge, Braxton Wilson and Dwayne Powell.

Davis Picks up Holmes Tire Late Model Win

Dirt track racing would not be what it is without the fans that come out to support their favorite local drivers. Saturday night on the Hill honored the importance of these individuals as it was Fan Appreciation night. In addition, a group of vintage race cars made their first appearance on the Hill taking laps, reminiscing of years ago, showing fans what cars were like and just how far dirt track racing has come.

The JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges tried a little something new this week in separating the youngsters into two groups: nine and under and ten and up. In the nine and under class there were four wedges with Brooklyn Wilson picking up the heat race win. With Brooklyn on the pole, the green was out for their ten lap feature. Wilson would take the early lead and that is where she would remain going on to pick up her first feature win. She was followed by Levi Crider, Caden Wiley and Timmy Glassburn. The older group had a field of nine with Reece “The Beast” Bollinger picking up the heat race win. With Bollinger bringing the field to the green he would jump out front to take the lead as Donnie Danley took second. Bollinger, able to fend off charges by Danley, would go on and add another win to his season followed by Danley, Billy Dawson, Jason Wright and Evan Large.

Setting fast time among a field of twenty-two Holmes Tire late models was Michael Davis with a time of 14.900. Heat race winners were “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel and Mike Basich with the dash win going to Stephen Prince. Claiming the last chance race was Mike Lonas.

With the field set, it was Prince setting the pace to the green and taking the early lead while Michael Davis looked in. Lap for lap, Davis looked for a way around Prince to take the top spot. As the two began to work through lap traffic, Davis would take to the inside of Prince ultimately taking the lead with eight laps in the books. Using lap traffic, Davis would extend his lead over Prince. However, caution would come out with fifteen laps down bunching the field back up. Back under way, Davis would again jump out front as “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel from his seventh place starting position would work under Rick Conley to take fourth. With Davis and Prince singled out, Hornikel and McLoughlin would battle side by side for the third spot. Neverthless, picking up the win, was Michael Davis followed by Stephen Prince, Shane McLoughlin, Dave Hornikel and Rick Conley.

Next to roll onto the track were the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds with a field of twenty-one. Fast qualifier for the division was Chris Basich with a time of 16.396. Picking up heat race wins were Ryan Leckrone and “Easy E” Eric Singhaus with David Hittle winning the dash. The last chance race win went to Hilton Eppley.

Hittle, bringing the field to the start off of turn four, would take the early lead into turn one, while sixth place starter, Jimmy Smith would make work of the high side passing to take third with a single lap in. Also, making a move was that of Larry Moran who would work his way around, then leader, David Hittle to take the lead. Smith would also get by Hittle to take the second spot when caution would come out, singling out the cars for the restart. Back under green, Moran would again reclaim the top spot as Smith running the high line would try to reel Moran in and does so to take the lead with seven laps in. However, Moran would charge back as the two would go side by side down the back stretch with Smith ultimately retaining the lead. Meanwhile, “Rockin” Robin Duston would look to pressure Moran for second, unable to make it hold as caution would come out with two laps to go for debris. With the field single file, racing was back under way and it was David Hittle who would make a charge on the high side to go from fifth to second in a single lap. Caution would fly once more, forcing a green checkered finish. Under green, it was Smith who would again take the top spot and fend off the charge by David Hittle to go on to pick up back to back wins. Third went to Larry Moran, fourth Robin Duston and fifth Bruce Takach.

            The Holmes Pest Control street stock division had a field of twelve with Mike Lonas setting fast time with a 17.309. Heat race winner was Bob Chilcote with John Wilson picking up the dash win setting him on the pole for the night’s feature race.

Bringing the field down the backstretch to the green was John Wilson who would jump out front over Mike Lonas. Looking in on the bumper of Lonas was Kevin Potts who would attempt to make his move. However, David Potts would change Kevin’s focus as he would work side by side with Kevin to take third with eight laps in. Just then a caution would also come out for debris forcing the field to restart single file. Back under green, Wilson would again retain the top spot as Lonas looked in. Wilson working the high side, regardless of the drive by Lonas, would go on to lead every lap and pick up his first feature win of the season. Rounding out the top five was Mike Lonas, David Potts, Kevin Potts and Larry Jarrett.

With a field of ten the Rigz Towing modlites had two heat races with wins going to Tracy Fritter and Ray Heskett placing them on the front row for their 12-lap feature event. Bringing the field to the green, it was Fritter to the front, troubles for Tanner McLoughlin, after starting third, would end his night early. After caution on lap four, the green was back out and again it was Fritter to the front. Meanwhile the battle for second would ensure between last week’s feature winner Joey Anderson and Clint Snyder. Back and forth the two would go with Snyder ultimately claiming the position. Nevertheless, continuing his dominance, picking up yet another win on the season was Tracy Fritter, increasing his bounty to $150. Finishing second was Clint Snyder, third was Ray Heskett, fourth Joey Anderson and fifth John Large.

The Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks had a field of eighteen with Colton St. John and Jerry Adkins each picking up a heat race win. With the field set, the green was out and it was St. John to the lead with Adkins looking in on his bumper. As the top two pulled away from the field and began working through lap traffic, St. John would remain out front going on to add another win to his season. Second went to Jerry Adkins followed by Edwin Geary, Tyler Parsons and Nova Martin.

A field of eight made up the Bugs-R-Gone truck division with a single heat race win going to Cole Lillibridge. With the green out, Lillibridge would claim the top spot with last week’s feature winner Braxton Wilson looking in. Halfway, Wilson would look to the inside, as Lillibridge would lose handle off of two bringing out the caution forcing him to restart tail. Back under green it was Wilson out front with Large and Tim Lillibridge running side by side up to the bumper of Wilson, looking to take the top spot. A caution filled end to the race would provide Cole Lillibridge the ability to work his way from the tail back up to second. With two to go, the field would again line up single file for restart with Cole taking the lead, fending off Wilson and picking up his first feature win of the season. Rounding out the top five was Braxton Wilson, Travis Hare, Tim Lillibridge and John Large.

The youngsters of the JPR Auto and Tire mini wedge division had a field of fourteen with Zoe Stafford and Logan Duncan each picking up a heat race win. After a rough start to their 10-lap feature, the green was out and it was Nick Large who would jump out front. Meanwhile, a back and forth battle for second would ensue between Zoe Stafford and Reece Bollinger, both looking to add another win on to their season. However, Large had other plans as he would begin to pull away from the field going on to pick up his first feature win of the season. Second went to Zoe Stafford, third to Reece Bollinger, fourth to Karyssa Beagle and fifth to Logan Duncan.

            Rolling out on to the track were the Holmes Tire late models. Setting fast time among eighteen was Michael Davis with a time of 15.003. Picking up heat race wins were Cameron Hague and Rick Mardis with Vic Hottinger claiming the dash win.

            With the field set, the green was out and it was Hottinger to the front although short lived as “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley would take the lead with one lap in the books. All the while, “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter would make work of Hottinger to take over second and look to take the lead from Conley. Lap for lap the two would battle with Conley edging out over Carpenter as they would begin to work through lap traffic. Seeing an opportunity, Carpenter would make his move diving under Conley to take the lead down the backstretch off of turn two. However, Conley would battle back as the two continued through lap traffic until a caution come out with one to go. After bunching the field up for single file green checkered finish. The green was out and Conley made one last attempt at regaining the lead, although unable to. Thus, claiming not only the win but the $125 bounty on Conley and the $100 Kryptonite Race Car bonus was “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter followed by Corey Conley, Michael Davis, Ty Myers and Dave Hornikel.

            The John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds had a field of twenty with “The Batman” Scott Peltz setting fast time with a 15.912. Heat race winners were “Rockin” Robin Duston and “Easy E” Eric Singhaus. The dash win was claimed by “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith.

            Setting the pace to the green and start of their 20-lap feature event was Smith. Taking the lead off of turn two was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse with Smith second. While a battle between “The Stalker” Jon Sluka and Larry Moran would ensue for third. However, working the high side and around Sluka and Moran to take over third was Scott Peltz. Moran, battling back, would look to the inside of Peltz to once again retain third when caution would come out. With the field bunched back up the green was out and it was Morehouse to the front. However, troubles for the leader as he would hit the wall entering turn one forcing him pit side for the remainder. Once again under green, with Smith as the new leader, a four way battle between Moran, Peltz, Sluka and Duston would ensue. Caution would once again come out as troubles for
“The Stalker” forcing him pit side. After bunching the field back up, the green was out and it was Jimmy Smith to the front and that is where he would remain going on to pick up the win. Rounding out the top five was Scott Peltz, Larry Moran, Robin Duston and Bruce Takach.

            Next out were the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a field of eleven. Setting fast time was David Potts with a time of 16.958. A single heat race win went to Mike Lonas, placing him on the pole for their 15-lap feature.

            With Lonas bringing the field down the backstretch, the green was out and Lonas would jump out front. Meanwhile, Bob Chilcote would look to take second from David Potts as the two would go side by side with Potts ultimately retaining his spot. As the field worked through lap traffic, Potts would begin to close the gap on Lonas working to take the lead. However, a caution would come out with one lap to go forcing the field to bunch back up, single file, for a green checkered finish. Back under green, adding another victory on to his season of wins, was Mike Lonas followed by David Potts, Bob Chilcote, Kevin Potts and Kyle Michalo.

            The Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks had a field of nineteen for their $500 to win special. Picking up heat race wins were Matt Miller, Jerry Adkins and Dale Beckett. With the field set, the green was out and it was pole setter Miller to the front. However, caution would come out as the 101 of Jerry Adkins lost a tire going into turn three. Bunched back up and under green, Miller would once again take the lead as Dale Beckett and Colton St. John went side by side for second. With Beckett securing second, he would set his sights on Miller. All over the bumper of Miller, Beckett would look to make a move and take the top spot. Nonetheless, Miller was able to defend his top spot and go on to pick up the $500 to win special and first feature victory. Finishing second was Dale Beckett, third was Colton St. John, forth Tyler Parsons and fifth Jason St. John.

            Twelve cars made up the Rigz Towing modlite division where Todd Rhoads and Joey Anderson each picked up a heat race win, placing them on the front row for the feature lineup. With the green out, it was Todd Rhoads who would take the early lead. Nevertheless, Anderson challenging, would go side by side with Rhoads to take the lead on lap two. However, caution would come out as top runners Keith Tish and Larry Kugel would collide hard with the backstretch wall. After a short red flag to clear the track and ensure the safety the drivers, the green was back out. Again Joey Anderson would jump out front and that was where he would remain going on to pick up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was Todd Rhoads, Clint Snyder, Steve Mix and John Large.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks rounded out the nights’ events with a field of five. Picking up the only heat race win was John Large placing him on the pole for their ten lap feature. Bringing the field to the green, it was Braxton Wilson who would take the lead. However, Large would battle back, challenging Wilson, side by side, for the lead.

Fritter Claims Rigz Towing Mod Lite Special

Racing action was sure to excite at the Hill for the $500 to win Rigz Towin mod lite special as well as the mid-season points championship, as there were 107 cars entered in the pits.

            With a field of thirteen, the JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges were the first to hit the track with heat race wins going to Nick Large and Logan Duncan. The field was set and racing action was under way for their ten lap feature event. Jumping out to the early lead was Logan Duncan while Large and Reece Bollinger battle it out for second. Ultimately, both would work their way around Duncan for top two spots. However, a caution would come out with four laps in, lining up for the restart; Large would have troubles forcing him into the infield, placing Bollinger out front for the restart. Back under green, it was Bollinger out front as Donnie Danley and Billy “The Kid” Dawson would work their way through the pack to battle it out for second. Nevertheless, able to fend off competitors to pick up another win on the season was Reece “The Beast” Bollinger followed by Dawson, Donnie Danley, Zoe Stafford and Karyssa Beagle. 

            Rolling out onto the track next were the Holmes Tire late models with a field of twenty-eight many of which looking to take the $100 bounty that has been place on “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley. Setting fast time in the division was Larry Bellman with a 14.305. Heat race winners were Kyle Moore, Jeremy Misel and Vic Hottinger with Shane McLoughlin picking up the dash win. The last chance race went to “Chargin” Charlie Duncan.

            Bringing the field down the backstretch to the green was McLoughlin who would take the top spot early. However, with only one lap in, Conley would use the high side to pass McLoughlin and take the lead. Meanwhile, “Flyin” Ryan Markham would make his move and work his way around McLoughlin to take second. However, McLoughlin would not let up as he and Markham would dice back and forth for the second place position. With nine laps in, Conley would begin to work his way through lap traffic trying to put some distance between himself and Markham. Caution would come out halfway, bunching the field back up and providing Conley the open track to once again regain the top spot. All the while, McLoughlin would work to maintain third from Larry Bellman. However, a hard hit into the wall would once again bring out the caution and force him pit side for the night. Back under green, “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley would continue his dominance on the hill as the bounty remains, going on to collect yet another feature on the season. Rounding out the top five was Ryan Markham, Larry Bellman, JR Genry and Rick Conley.

Next out were the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifies with a field of sixteen. Setting fast time was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse with a 15.330. Picking up the single heat race win was “Rockin” Robin Duston with “The Stalker” Jon Sluka picking up the dash win.

With the field set, the green was out and it was Sluka to the front. Working the high side of Duston to take third was Kevin Morehouse who would then set his sights on Smith when caution would come out. Back under green, Sluka would once again jump out front as Morehouse would work the high side of Smith for second gaining the position off of turn two. Morehouse looking in at Sluka, still in that high line, as Sluka comes to lap traffic half way in. As the two battled through lap traffic, Sluka would gain his lead over Morehouse. However, a caution for debris with five laps to go would bunch the field back up for single file restart. Green once more, Sluka would work to defend the lead as Morehouse all over his bumper trying to find a way around yet unable to do so. Picking up his first feature win of the season, his first night in the car, it was “The Stalker” Jon Sluka followed by Morehouse, Jimmy Smith, Robin Duston and Bruce Takach.

Setting fast time among thirteen Holmes Pest Control street stocks was Bob Daugherty with a time of 16.698. Heat race winner was Terry Perrine with the dash win going to Mike Lonas.

With Lonas on the pole, the field was set to begin their 15-lap feature event. After a rough start, the green was out and it was Lonas who would take the lead with David Potts running second. However, troubles for Potts would force him to pull off. Lonas would retain top spot as he would have a straight away lead over newly second Bob Daugherty. With the top two single file, a three way battle between Terry Perrine, Dustin Daugherty and Bob Chilcote would ensue for third. However, again troubles for the second place position, now Bob Daugherty, would force him pit side, sorting the field once more. Back under green, Dustin Daugherty would work the high side trying to find his way around Perrine to take second and does but contact with the wall off of turn two would retire Daugherty for the night. Once back under green, Lonas would again jump out front and that is where he would remain going on to add another victory to the season. Second went to Terry Perrine, third to Bob Chilcote, fourth to Brian Simpson and fifth to Jason St. John.

The Rigz Towing modlite division had a field of thirteen for their $500 to win special. Setting fast time was Tracy Fritter with a time of 16.270. Picking up the heat race win was Ray Leslie with the dash win going to Tanner McLoughlin. With the field set, the green was out and it was the youngster McLoughlin who would take the early lead. Looking to the inside, Fritter would make his move to take the lead on lap two. Caution would fly as Brian Stuhldreher would make contact with Kacy Campbell forcing him to the tail. Back under green, it was once more Fritter to the front with McLoughlin holding his own in second. Meanwhile, Ray Leslie would work his way around Campbell for fourth and look to take third from Joey Anderson. However, he would be unable to surpass as the checkered come out with Tracy Fritter sitting in victory lane once again. Rounding out the top five was Tanner McLoughlin, Joey Anderson, Ray Leslie and Brian Stuhldreher.

            Next, up were the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with a field of nineteen. Heat race winners were Matt Miller and Kevin Markey setting them on the front row for the feature event. With the green out, it was Miller to the lead while remaining top five Markey, Tyler Parsons, Nova Martin and Jerry Adkins would battle for position. However, after a straight away lead over second of Markey, troubles for Miller as he would slow and take it to the infield. Thus, he would leave a four-way battle for the top spot with Parsons edging out over the field to go on and pick up his first feature win on the season. Finishing second was Jerry Adkins followed by Colton St. John, Kevin Markey and Nova Martin.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks were the last to see action with a field of five. A single heat race win went to the youngster Braxton Wilson placing him on the pole for the night’s feature. Setting a slow, steady pace to the green, Wilson would take an early lead as Winterringer worked his way around John Large for second. With his sights on Wilson, Winterringer would take the lead. However, short lived as Wilson would regain the top spot edging out over the rest of the field as Winterringer and Large would go back and forth for second. Thus, going on to pick up his first feature win in the truck division at eleven years old, it was “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson. Second went to John Large, third Travis Winterringer, fourth Dwayne Powell and fifth Mason Radcliff.

“Flyin Ryan” Claims Holmes Tire Late Model Feature

With 111 cars in the pits and the stands packed with fans, Saturday night was filled with non-stop racing, as seven different divisions were in action on the Hill.

            Starting out the night’s events were the JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges with a field of thirteen. Heat race wins went to Nick Large and Reece Bollinger. With the field set, the green was out for their ten lap feature event with Bollinger taking the lead with one lap in the books. Meanwhile a three way battle for fourth between Kyla Dillon, Billy “The Kid” Dawson and Donnie Danley would ensue ultimately ending in a caution and Danley restarting tail. Back under green, Bollinger would again take the top spot as Zoe Stafford worked her way around Large to take second after starting seventh. However, caution would come out forcing the hard charging Stafford to restart tail and allow Large to regain the second spot. Nevertheless, after leading every lap, picking up another win for the season was Reece Bollinger. He was followed by Nick Large, Billy Dawson, Kyla Dillon and Brooklyn Wilson. 

            Next to roll onto the track were the Holmes Tire late models with a field of twenty-three. Setting fast time for the division was Shane McLoughlin with a time of 15.127.  Heat race winners were Vic Hottinger and DJ Cline with the dash win going to JR Gentry. The last chance race was won by Brad Mickley.

            Bringing the field to the green it was Gentry and Rick Bond side by side to the start. Jumping out front was Gentry with Shane McLoughlin a close second. Closing in and taking second was Ryan Markham who would set his sights on Gentry. With five laps in, caution would come out bunching the field up for the restart. Back under way, Gentry would take to the high side as Markham would work the low searching for a way to the front. As Gentry worked his way through lap traffic he would maintain his lead. Meanwhile, Rick Mardis would look to work McLoughlin for third as DJ Cline would also look in on the bumper of Mardis for a top five battle. As the laps dwindled, Markham would begin to reel Gentry in through lap traffic with two to go. Side by side the two would battle off of four to the checkered with “Flyin” Ryan Markham edging out over JR Gentry for the win. Third went to Shane McLoughlin, fourth DJ Cline and fifth Rick Mardis.

            A field of sixteen made up the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modified division where “Rockin” Robin Duston set fast time with a time of 16.303. A single heat race was won by James Dennis with the dash win going to Nathon Loney.

            On the pole and setting the pace to the start was Nathon Loney who would take the lead as the green dropped. With Loney in command, the battle for second ensued between Jimmy Smith and Robin Duston. With racing action from one turn to the other, caution would come out as the leader, Loney, would collide with a lap car attempting to exit the track. Able to continue Loney would once again take the top spot, as Smith and Duston would battle it out for second. Lap for lap, Loney would work his way through lap traffic with Smith and Duston both able to reel in the leader making it a three-wide battle down the backstretch. However, with one lap to go, troubles for Loney off of three would bring out the caution. Single file back to the green it was Duston who would take the lead with Smith battling back. Again, troubles for the leader Duston as he would slow down on the back stretch bringing out another caution with still one lap to go. Bunched back up the field would once more attempt a green checkered finish with Smith out front. Back under green, Smith would take the lead with Bruce Takach sitting second and looking to make a run at Smith. However, able to hold off competitors to pick up his first win of the season was Jimmy Smith followed by Bruce Takach, Casey Fritz, James Dennis and David Hittle.

            Setting fast time in the Holmes Pest Control street stock division among a field of seventeen was Mike Lonas with a time of 17.156. A single heat race win went to David Potts while Bob Daugherty claimed the win in the dash.

            With the field set for their 15-lap feature event, the green was out and  it was Bob Daugherty who would take the lead with Wilson a close second. Meanwhile, Bob Chilcote would make work under Trae Schonauer to take over the third. Side-by-side, Daugherty and Wilson would go down the backstretch with Wilson edging over Daugherty and taking the lead off of turn four with five laps in the books. Starting to work their way through lap traffic, Wilson would retain his lead as Mike Lonas would look to take third from Chilcote. However, troubles for Dustin Daugherty would bring out the yellow and bunch the field back up for single file restart. Once again under green, Wilson would work to retain the top spot. Nonetheless, Daugherty would have other plans as he would get around Wilson to take the lead. However, his reign was short lived as Mike Lonas would also make his way around Wilson and ultimately Daugherty to take the lead with one lap to go. Thus, going on to pick up the win it was Mike Lonas. Rounding out the top five was Bob Daugherty, John Wilson, Bob Chilcote and David Potts.

            With a twelve car field, the Rigz Towing modlite division featured two heats with wins going to Tracy Fritter and Keith Tish. With the green out, it was Fritter who would jump out to an early lead as Ryan Baker would pass Tish for second. However, it was short lived as Baker would spin bringing out the caution and forcing himself to restart tail. Back under green, Fritter would again take the top spot as Tanner McLoughlin and Joey Anderson would work their way through the field from ninth and tenth. However, going on to pick up the win, no stranger to victory lane was Tracy Fritter followed by Keith Tish, Kacy Campbell, Tanner McLoughlin and Joey Anderson.

            Next out were the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with an eighteen car field with Colten St. John and Kevin Markey each picking up a heat race win. Bringing the field to the start of their feature event was St. John who would take an early lead. Meanwhile, working their way through the field, Jerry Adkins and Tim Workman would set their sights on gaining a top five position after starting back in the field. However, troubles for outside pole setter Kevin Markey as he would fall back into the field. Back racing, it was once again St. John to the lead as he would go on to add another victory to the books for this season. Second went to Nova Martin, third to Tyler Parsons, fourth to Jerry Adkins and fifth Tim Workman.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks rounded out the night’s events with a field of eight. The one and only heat race win went to Tim Lillibridge. With the field set, the green was out and Lillibridge would jump out front. Meanwhile, Travis Winterringer would work under John Large to take the second spot and up to the bumper of Lillibridge. Lap for lap, the two would battle for position as a caution would come out with Lillibridge out front. Back under green, Wintterringer would take the lead as Cole Lillibridge would work his way up to third. Nevertheless, the battle for the lead would continue as Tim Lillibridge would work the back bumper of Winterringer. Taking the white flag, the two would go side by side down the backstretch and into turn three with Lillibridge making his move and passing Winterringer coming off of four to pick up the win. Finishing third was Cole Lillibridge, fourth was John Large and fifth went to Dwayne Powell.

Chilcote Claims $1,000 Holmes Pest Control Invitational

It was a hot one on the Hill, as cars entered the pits and fans filled the stands in anticipation for the night’s events including the $1,000 to win street stock invitational.

First out for the night were the JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges with a field of sixteen. Heat race winners were Zoe Stafford and Reece Bollinger with the last chance race going to Brooklyn Wilson. With the field set, the youngsters looked to do battle. As the green dropped, a three wide battle for the lead would ensue down the back stretch between Stafford, Bollinger and Brayden Renfrew. Single file, after the caution, Bollinger would take the early lead as Stafford would look to work her way around him. The two battled it out as they pulled away from the field. With laps dwindling, Bollinger would bobble on the front stretch with Stafford right there to capitalize and take the top spot, going on to pick up the win. Third went to Karyssa Beagle, fourth to Kyla Dillon and fifth Donnie Danley

            Fast qualifier among nineteen competitors in the Holmes Tire late model division was Shane McLoughlin with a 15.587. Picking up heat race wins were DJ Cline and Mike Lonas with Rick Conley claiming the dash win and the pole for the night’s 25-lap feature event.

            With Rick Conley bringing the field down the back stretch to the green, it was outside pole setter, “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley who would jump out front. Meanwhile, Rick Mardis would make work of Shane McLoughlin and Rick Conley to take over the second spot. An early caution would bunch the field back up for a single file restart. Again it was Conley and Mardis, one and two, as Rick Conley and McLoughlin would battle it out for third, with McLoughlin taking third. Looking in at second, McLoughlin would work the bumper of Mardis. However, Lonas would again battle back up to McLoughlin, taking third back and thus, setting his sights on Mardis. As laps dwindled the field would begin working through lap traffic allowing Conley and Mardis to pull away while Lonas and McLoughlin battled for third. Nevertheless, remaining undefeated in appearances on the Hill it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley picking up yet another feature win on the season. Rounding out the top five was Rick Mardis, Mike Lonas, Shane McLoughlin and DJ Cline.

The John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds had an eighteen car field with “The Taboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith setting fast time with a 17.105. Heat race winners were Hilton Eppley and Steve Reed with Casey Fritz picking up the win in the dash.

With the line-up set, Fritz would bring the field to the green and go side by side with outside pole setter “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse for the lead; ultimately taking the top spot as lap one entered the books. With Morehouse out front, fast qualifier, Jimmy Smith, would look to make his move as he would work the bottom of Fritz to take second. Lap for lap, Smith would look to challenge Morehouse. However, he would be unable to surpass as it was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse who would take the checkered, going on to make his first appearance of the season in victory lane. Finishing third was Casey Fritz, fourth “Rockin” Robin Dustin and fifth, up from his tenth place start, was Brad Goff.

The Holmes Pest Control Street stocks had a 12-car field for their $1,000 to win special. Setting fast time for the night was Mike Lonas with a time of 16.770. Picking up the heat race win was Dustin Daugherty while the dash win would go to Bob Chilcote.

With Chilcote on the pole, he would set the pace to the start of their 20-lap special. Jumping out early was Chilcote with Lonas looking in. Caution would fly, bunching the field up for a single file restart. Once again under green, Chilcote would take the top spot as Lonas did everything he could to find a way around Chilcote. Coming up on lap traffic, top two would pull away from the field and Lonas would try to use lap traffic to his advantage. However, he would be unable to surpass Chilcote as Bob Daugherty would begin working him for second. The two would go back and forth for position with Lonas ultimately claiming second. Nevertheless, going on to pick up the $1,000 to win street stock special and his first feature of the year was Bob Chilcote followed by Lonas, Daugherty, John Wilson and Kevin Potts.

Next out was the Rigz Towing modlite division with a field of fourteen. Picking up heat race wins were Darrick Hubbard and Brian Stuhldreher setting them on the front row for the night’s feature event. With the field set, the green was out and it was Hubbard and Stuhldreher However, trouble for Hubbard causes him to fall back in the field as Ray Leslie would work his way into the top three. Meanwhile, Stuhldreher would remain out front with Clint Snyder looking in. However, going on to pick up his first win of the season was Brian Stuhldreher with Clint Snyder second, Ray Leslie third, Keith Tish fourth and Joey Anderson fifth.

Twenty cars made up the field for the Short Track Fire and Rescue division with Tony Mullinnex, Nova Martin and John Ohse each picking up a heat race win. With the field set, the green was out and a four wide battle for the lead would ensue off of turn two. Edging out front was Mullinnex although short lived as Martin would take the lead as the yellow came out. Back under green, it again was Martin to the front as Colton St. John would make his move and go side by side with the leader to take the top spot on lap four. A caution would bunch the field up restarting single file. St. John would once again take the lead, as Tim Workman made his way from tenth to battle Martin for the second, succeeding and setting his sights on St. John. However, able to fend off his competitors and pick up another win for the season was St. John followed by Tim Workman, Nova Martin, and Tyler Parsons.

Ending the night’s events were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with a field of six. A single heat race win went to Tim Lillibridge setting him on the pole for the night’s feature. With the green out, it was Tim who would take an early lead but no stranger to the truck division and nephew, Cole Lillibridge, was right on his bumper. While fending off Large, Cole would look in at the top spot. However, as the checkered dropped it was Tim Lillibridge who would pick up the win. Fourth went to Mason Radcliff and fifth CJ Muth.

Conley Continues Streak and Picks up $1,200 to Win

With 116 cars in the pits and the stands packed with fans, Saturday night was filled with non-stop racing, as seven different divisions were in action on the Hill for Veteran’s Appreciation night.

Starting out the night’s events were the JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges with a field of fifteen. Heat race winners were Logan Duncan and Zoe Stafford setting them on the front row of their 10-lap feature event. Under green, it was Duncan who would jump out to the lead with Stafford right on his bumper. Working his way around Donnie Danley to take third was Reece Bollinger who would then set his sights on Stafford for second. Caution would come out with two to go, bunching the field back up for the restart. Back under green, Duncan would again jump out to an early lead. However, coming into turn three to take the checkered, Bollinger would pass Duncan to go on and pick up the win. Finishing third was Zoe Stafford, fourth Donnie Danley and fifth Nick Large.          

The Holmes Tire late model division had a field of twenty-four with last week’s feature winner Larry Bellman setting fast time with a 14.651. Picking up heat race wins were Allen Baker and Rick Mardis with Shane McLoughlin claiming the dash win. The last chance race win went to Wayne Maffet.

Bringing the field to the start of their 25-lap $1,200 to win special was McLoughlin who would jump out to an early lead. However, on the move and looking to take the top spot was Corey Conley who would ultimately pass McLoughlin and take the lead on lap two. As Conley negotiated his way through lap traffic, McLoughlin would work his way back up to the bumper of Conley looking to regain the top spot. However, with nine laps in, a caution would come out bunching the field back up and providing Conley open air to again jump out front and pull away from second. Meanwhile, looking to make his move and working the bumper of McLoughlin was JR Gentry who would cross over McLoughlin in turn one and two to take the second. However, a caution would come out forcing Gentry to restart tail. Back under green, Conley would again remain out front as battle for positions ensued throughout the field including Gentry who would work his way back up to seventh with six laps to go. Unfortunately, after working his way up to third with a mere four laps to go troubles would send Gentry pit side. Nevertheless, remaining undefeated in appearances at the Hill this season and picking up a $1,200 pay day was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley. Rounding out the top five was Shane McLoughlin, Allen Baker, Cameron Hague and Kyle Moore.

            Next to roll onto the track were the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds with a field of twenty-five. Fast qualifier for the division was Bruce Takach with a time of 15.579. Heat race winners were Chris Basich and “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse with DJ Cline picking up the dash win and Casey Fritz the last chance race.

            With the field set, the green was out on their 20-lap feature event. Side by side, pole sitter, DJ Cline and Larry Moran would battle it out for the lead with Moran edging out. However, a caution would come out bunching the field back up single file. Back under green, it was Cline who would get the run and take the top spot as Moran, Chris Basich and Jimmy Smith would fight for second through fourth. As Cline pulled away from the field and began working through lap traffic, Smith would advance to second as “The Logger” Morehouse would work his way from eighth to fifth with five laps to go. As the top five negotiated lap cars, Smith would close in on Cline. However, he would be unable to surpass as DJ Cline would pick up his first feature win at the Hill this season. Second went to Jimmy Smith, third to Larry Moran, fourth to Kevin Morehouse and fifth to Chris Basich.

The Rigz Towing modlite division had a field of twelve with Larry Moran and Darrick Hubbard Sr. each picking up heat race wins setting them on the front row for the 12-lap feature. With the green out, Moran would take the top spot with Hubbard challenging. However, Hubbard would have to turn focus as Keith Tish worked his way up to battle for second and then went to work on Moran. Just as Tish would pass Moran for the lead caution would fly forcing Tish back to second. Back under green, Moran would again take the lead and that is where he would remain going on to pick up his first feature of the season. Second went to Keith Tish, third Ray Leslie, fourth Clint Snyder and fifth Joey Anderson.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of fourteen with Mike Lonas setting fast time with a 16.755. A single heat race win went to Trae Schonauer while it was Rusty Redman picking up the dash win. With the field set, the 15-lap feature was under way where a three-wide battle for the lead between Redman, David Potts and Mike Lonas would ensue with Potts advancing. As Potts pulled nearly a four second lead over second, the battle would continue between Bob Daugherty and Lonas for third. Caution would come out with two laps to go bunching the field back up. Back green, it was Potts jumping out over the rest of the field as Redman, Lonas and Daugherty would dice it out for second through fourth. However, going on to pick up his first ever street stock feature after leading every lap it was David Potts followed by Rusty Redman, Bob Daugherty, Mike Lonas and Dustin Daugherty.

With a field of twenty, the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks had two heat races with wins going to Tyler Parsons and Colton St. John. Setting the pace to the green was Parsons as he and St. John would go side by side for the lead with St. John taking the top spot. Meanwhile, working his way up through the field, from his eighteenth starting spot was Jerry Adkins, as troubles would send Parsons pit side. Back under green, St. John would again jump out front as Adkins worked his way around Edwin Geary and Doug Hensel for third. Nevertheless, picking up yet another feature win on the season it was Colton St. John. Tony Mullinnex, Jerry Adkins, Doug Hensel and Edwin Geary rounded out the top five.

Rounding out the night’s events were the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks with a field of six. Picking up the single heat race win was Tim Lillibridge placing him on the pole for the night’s feature event. As the field came to the start, it was Lillibridge who would jump out front with Travis Winterringer looking in. However, a right front flat for Winterringer would bring out the caution and force him to restart tail. Back under green, it was Lillibridge out front with Large challenging but unable to take the top spot as his focus would have to turn to the charging Winterringer who would ultimately take the second spot from Large. Nevertheless, after leading every lap, picking up his first feature win of the season was Tim Lillibridge followed by Wintterringer, Large, Dwayne Powell and Mason Radcliff.

Bellman Picks up First Career Feature on the Hill

            After weeks of rain and an impending threat in the forecast, track personnel, fans and drivers would not let another week of racing get away from them. As drivers and fans from all over made their way to the hill, the track personnel did all they could to ensure they got the track ready for the night’s $1,200 to win Holmes Tire Late Model feature.

            Starting off the night’s events were the JPR Auto and Tire mini wedges with Logan Duncan and Zoe Stafford each picking up a heat race win. With Duncan brining the field of 15 to the start of their ten lap feature event, he would jump out to the early lead as Stafford looked in. A battle for third between Karyssa Beagle and Donnie Danley would ensue as Duncan lengthened his lead. After a number of cautions, the green was back out and again it was Duncan to the lead and that is where he would remain, leading every lap and picking up his first feature win of the season. Second went to Zoe Stafford, third to Brayden Renfrew, fourth to Carson Hubbard and fifth to Reece Bollinger.

            With a field of 26, it was “Flyin” Ryan Markham setting fast time in the Holmes Tire Late model division with a 15.269. Heat race winners were Ty Myers, Shane McLoughlin and “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter. Dash winner was Larry Bellman with the last chance race win going to Jeremy Misel.

            Setting the pace for the $1,200 to win feature event was Bellman with Matt Irey on the outside. Jumping out to an early lead was Bellman, while a side by side battle for second ensued between Markham and Irey. A crossover by Markham off of two would give him the second spot as Bellman remained out front. Working his way through lap traffic, caution would come out, bunching the field back up. Back under green, Bellman would again take the top spot as the top five singled out with Carpenter taking fourth over Shane McLoughlin. Nevertheless, leading every lap and going on to pick up his first feature win and a $1,200 pay day was Larry Bellman. Rounding out the top five was Ryan Markahm, Matt Irey, Tyler Carpenter and Shane McLoughlin.

            The John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing Modifieds were next to roll onto the track with a field of 17. Setting fast time for the night was Brad Goff with a 16.535. Picking up heat race wins were “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver and David Hittle with Denny Benjamin winning the dash.

            Leading the field down the backstretch, it was Benjamin setting the pace with Goff on the outside. As the green dropped, Goff would take the lead but a caution would come out forcing the field to bunch back up. Back under green, Benjamin would get the run and take the lead. However, Goff would not give up easily as the two would battle it out side by side with Benjamin ultimately taking the top spot after contact between the two would send Goff to the tail. Meanwhile, working his way through the field, from his seventh place starting position, Wisecarver would work his way around Jimmy Smith to take over second. Caution would once again come out closing the gap Benjamin had over the field. With the green back out, Benjamin would jump to the front doing what he could to hold off Wisecarver. However, taking the lead on lap eight and never looking back, picking up yet another feature win for the season was “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver followed by Denny Benjamin, Jimmy Smith, David Hittle and “Rockin” Robin Duston.

            The Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks had a field of 24 with Bob Daugherty setting fast time with at 16.674. Brad Eagle, Paul Holmes, and David Potts each would pick up a heat race win with Bob Daugherty claiming the dash and the pole for the night’s feature event. Picking up the last chance race was Kevin Potts.

            Coming to the start of their 15-lap feature, it was Mike Lonas who would take the early lead with Daugherty battling right back while Chase Alexander would make it a three way battle for the lead. Working his way around the other two and claiming the top spot was Daugherty as Lonas and Alexander would have contact going back and forth for second. However, troubles would send Alexander pitside during a caution. Once again under green, it was Bob Daugherty who would take the lead fending off Mike Lonas and picking up the feature win. Third went to Dustin Daugherty, fourth to David Potts and fifth to Chaz O’Del,

The Rigz Towing modlites had a field of 13. Heat race winners were Ryan Baker and Rory Reed setting them on the front row of the night’s feature event. Coming to the green, it was Baker out front with Clint Snyder and Rory Reed challenging one another for second. Meanwhile, working Kacy Campbell for fourth, from his tenth place starting position, was Keith Tish. With Tish taking fourth, troubles for both Reed and Snyder would allow Tish to take second and put a charge on Baker as they came to the checkered. However, with enough of a lead, it was Ryan Baker picking up his first win at the hill this season. Top five finishers were Keith Tish, Rory Reed, Kacy Campbell and Reece Shelton.

The Short Track Fire & Rescue Mini Stock division had a field of 19 with heat race wins going to Kevin Markey and Edwin Geary. With the field set, the green was out and it was Markey to the lead. Meanwhile, working his way up to second from his sixth place starting position was Michael Rose who would set his sights on Markey. However, as the laps dwindled and unable to surpass, it was Kevin Markey who would go on to claim his first feature win of the season with Michael Rose, Colton St. John, Zach Chaffin and Tyler Parsons rounding out the top five.

Rounding out the field, the Bugs-R-Gone trucks featured a single heat with the win going to Travis Winterringer. After inverting the field for the start of their feature event, it was Josey Lillibridge who would bring the field of five to the green. With Lillibridge out front, second place John Large would challenge her for the top spot, as Winterringer worked his way to third. Taking the lead going down the backstretch was Large, leaving Lillibridge and Winterringer to battle it out for second. Lap for lap, Winterringer would work the bumper of Lillibridge ultimately taking the spot. Nevertheless, going on to pick up the win was John Large followed by Winterringer, Lillibridge, Don Radcliff and Dwayne Powell.

“The Outlaw” Picks up $1,000 Payday

            Fans filled the stands at Hilltop Speedway for a full night of racing action including the $1,000 to win for the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing Modifieds.

First out for the night was the John’s Custom Embroidery and Screen Printing modifieds with a field of 21. Setting fast time for the night was “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver with a 15.729. Heat race winners were “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt and DJ Cline with Bruce Takach picking up the dash win.

Bringing the field to the start of their $1,000 to feature event was Bruce Takach. Once under green, “The Outlaw” Wisecarver did not waste any time making his way to the front leaving the “Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith, Lance Elson, and Takach to battle it out for second through fourth. Taking second, looking in at Wisecarver was Smith, meanwhile, “Rockin” Robin Duston would work his way to fourth working the bumper of Elson. Regardless, even the strong run from Smith could not falter Wisecarver who would go on to pick up the $1,000 pay day. Second went to Jimmy Smith, third Lance Elson, fourth Robin Duston and fifth went to DJ Cline.  

Next to hit the track was the Holmes Tire late models with a field of 16. Fast qualifier for the division was Shane McLoughlin with a time of 14.591. Heat race winner was Shane Campbell with “Dangerous” Dave Hornikel picking up the dash win.

With the field set, it was Hornikel on the pole, jumping out to an early lead was Kyle Moore. As “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley claimed second, a battle for third would ensue between Hornikel and Rick Conley. Unfortunately, Hornikel would come to a stop at the top of turn four bringing out the caution and ultimately going pit side. Back under green, it was again Moore to the top spot with Conley looking in. Lap for lap the two would battle it out with Moore maintaining his lead. As the laps dwindled the two would work through lap traffic allowing Conley to reel in Moore. Coming into the last lap, Conley would use lap traffic to his advantage over taking the top spot to pick up his third consecutive win at the Hill. Rounding out the top five was Kyle Moore, Rick Conley, Steve Prince and Vic Hottinger.

The Rigz Towing modlites had a field of ten with Kacy Campbell and Tanner McLoughlin each picking up a heat race win. Bunching the field up, looking to take the green, Kacy Campbell would take the top spot over the rest of the field. With Campbell out front, it was Larry Moran who from his ninth place starting position, would work his way up to second. However, after going through the infield, troubles would cause Moran to fall back to seventh. With caution out, it would provide Brandon Shaw the opportunity to close the gap on front runner Campbell. Nevertheless, back under green, Campbell was able to hold off the late charge by Shaw to go on to pick up his first feature win of the season. Third went to Clint Snyder, fourth to Josh Crider and fifth went to Tanner McLoughlin.

Rolling onto the track with a field of 17 was the Holmes Tire street stocks. Setting fast time for the second week was Bob Daugherty with a 16.812. Picking up the only heat race win was Kevin Potts with fast qualifier Daugherty claiming the dash win placing him on the pole for the night.

Setting the pace to the green, Daugherty and Mike Lonas would go side-by-side into one with Lonas taking the lead off of two. Taking third was David Potts as Kyle Michalo, Kevin Potts, and Rusty Redman would dice it out for fourth through sixth. However, caution would come out as Michalo spun, bunching the field back up for the restart. With racing back underway, Lonas would again take the top spot as David Potts worked around Bob Daugherty for second. However, Potts would be out of laps as it was Mike Lonas once again in victory lane for his third consecutive win. Finishing fourth was Kevin Potts with Dustin Daugherty finishing fifth.

The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a field of eight with Cole Lillibridge picking up the only heat race win. After inverting the top six from the heat it was “WildHare” Travis Hare bringing the field to the start. With racing action underway and making his way from sixth to the lead coming off of two was Lillibridge. With Lillibridge out front, Travis Winterringer and John Large would battle side-by-side for second with Winterringer ultimately taking the spot. However, it was too late to make a challenge at the top spot as Cole Lillibridge would go on to pick up his first feature win of the season. Finishing fourth was Preston Kelly while fifth went to Dwayne Powell.

            Rounding out the night’s events were the Short Track Fire and Rescue mini stocks with a field of 18. Heat race winners were Michael Rose and Brad Workman, setting them on the front row for the night’s feature. As Rose brought the field to the green, he would take the early lead as Tony Mullinnex would take second leaving Brad Workman and Colton St. John to battle side-by-side for third. With a caution out, the field would bunch up allowing Workman and St. John to take over second and third positions while Rose maintained his lead. Working his way around Workman, St. John would set his sights on Rose. However, unable to overtake, it was Michael Rose who would pick up his first win of the season. Rose was followed by St. John, Nova Martin, Tyler Parsons and Tony Mullinnex.

Conley, Lonas and Fritter No Strangers to Victory Lane

April 16, 2016

            After weeks of uncooperative weather, Mother Nature changed her ways as the sun was shining on the Hill for the 135 cars that entered the pits ensuring a spectacular night of races.

            Making their first appearance of the year, the JPR Auto & Tire mini wedge division had a total of 15. Heat race winners were Zoe Stafford, Logan Duncan and Billy “The Kid” Dawson with Levi Crider picking up the last chance race.

Bringing the youngsters to the green, Stafford would jump out front over Duncan. After multiple cautions, Stafford would remain in the lead. However, working his way through the field up to second, from his eight place starting position, was Reece Bollinger. Back under green, Bollinger would work the inside of Stafford down the front stretch and take the lead going on to pick up his first win of the season. Finishing third was Levi Crider, fourth Donnie Danley and fifth went to Carson Hubbard.

Setting fast time among 27 in the Holmes Tire late model division was “Hammer Down” Doug Drown with a 14.07. Heat race winners were Brad Malcuit and Matt Irey with the dash win going to John Wyer. Picking up the last chance race was Brad Mickley.  

Bringing the stout field of late models to the start was Wyer, who would jump out front early with Drown and “Flyin” Ryan Markham right on his bumper. Challenging for top spot, Drown would begin to gain ground on Wyer. Ten laps down caution would come out bunching the field back up. Back under green, it was Wyer to the high side with Drown working the low line, side by side the two would go lap after lap to the line with Drown taking the lead on lap twelve. Also on the move from his eleventh place starting position was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley who had worked his way up to third, challenging now second, Wyer. Successfully taking second, Conley would set his sights on Drown. With five laps to go, the two would work through lap traffic with Conley making up ground and taking the lead on lap twenty-one. Thus, going on to pick up back to back wins to start the 2016 season was Corey Conley. Rounding out the top five was Doug Drown, John Wyer, Ryan Markham and Matt Irey.

Next to hit the track were the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds with a field of 25. Fast qualifier for the division was Lance Elson with a 15.442. Picking up heat race wins were “Rockin” Robin Duston and “Stromin” Norman Aronhalt with Rex Frohnapfel Jr. winning the dash and Chris Basich claiming the last chance race.

Setting the pace to the green, it was hall of famer Rick Aukland who would take the lead off of turn two over Frohnapfel. Working his way around Larry Moran to take over second was Bruce Takach, as Aukland would extend his lead over the field. Also working their way up to third and fourth from seventh and eighth place starting positions was Aronhalt and Duston. As the laps dwindled, Aukland would continue his dominance through lap traffic going on to pick up his first win at the Hill for the season. Finishing second was Bruce Takach followed by Norm Aronhalt, Robin Duston and Larry Moran.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of 12 with Mike Lonas setting fast time with a 16.398. The only heat race win went to Don Townsend with Bob Daugherty winning the dash.  

With Daugherty on point, leading the field down the backstretch to the green, he would take the top spot with Mike Lonas right on his bumper. As the battle ensued between the two top runners, Daugherty would push up the track in turn four causing him to fall back in the field. With Lonas out front and David Potts a close second, the race for positions third through fifth ensued between Kevin Potts, Don Townsend and Bob Daugherty. Nevertheless, no stranger to victory lane, picking up the back to back wins was Mike Lonas. Rounding out the top five was David Potts, Kevin Potts, Bob Daugherty and Don Townsend.

There were 18 in the Rigz Towing modlites division with Tracy Fritter and Kacy Campbell each picking up a heat win. Coming to the green, last week’s winner, Fritter, took the early lead as Brian Stuhldreher and Kacy Campbell went lap for lap for the second spot. Unfortunately, Campbell would have troubles causing him to fall back in the field, leaving Stuhldreher to focus on Fritter. However, maintaining his position and picking up back to back wins was Tracy Fritter, with Stuhldreher finishing second, Rory Reed third, Eddie Smith III fourth, and Clint Snyder fifth.

The Short Track Fire & Rescue mini stocks had a field of 28 with Blaine Markey, Greg Thompson and Zach Chaffin claiming heat race wins. With the field set, it was Markey and Thompson sitting on the front row of their 12-lap feature event. After an early roll over by Markey and a chaotic, caution filled start to the race, it was Colton St. John who would take the top spot and go on to pick up the win. Finishing second was Matt Miller, third was Michael Rose, fourth Billy Parsons and fifth went to Tyler Parsons.

The Bugs-R-Gone truck division had a field of ten with Travis Winterringer and Tim Lillibridge picking up each of the heat race wins setting them on the front row for the night’s feature event. With the green out it was Winterringer taking the lead over Lillibridge and last week’s winner John Large. Remaining out front, leading every lap and picking up his second ever feature victory was Travis Winterringer followed by Tim Lillibridge, John Large, CJ Muth, and Dwayne Powell.

“The Flying Ace” and “The Outlaw” Pick up Season Opener Wins

            After many late nights in the garage, one could not have asked for a better day for the season opener at Hilltop Speedway, Millersburg. With the grand stands packed and 100 cars filling the pits, racing action was underway for the first time of the 2016 season.

First to hit the track was the Holmes Tire late models with a field of 19. Fast qualifier for the division was Craig Wolford with a time of 14.601. Heat race winners were John Wyer and Ty Myers, while Shane McLoughlin picked up the dash win setting him on the pole for the night’s feature event.

With the field set, the first 25-lap feature of the season was underway. Jumping out to the lead off of turn two over McLoughlin was “The Flyin Ace” Corey Conley, while “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter and Greg Oakes battled it out for third. After taking the position from Oakes, Carpenter would also work his way past McLoughlin looking in at the top spot. However, Conley would not be easily overcome as he would retain his position, leading every lap green to checkered and picking up the first win of the season. Rounding out the top five was Greg Oakes, Shane McLoughlin and Mike Lonas.

Joining the list of sponsor’s for the 2016 season, the John’s Custom Embroidery & Screen Printing modifieds had a field of 19. Qualifying with a 15.450 was “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver placing him in the night’s dash. Picking up wins in each of the two heat races were David Hittle and Rex Frohnapfel Jr with the dash win going to “Rockin” Robin Duston.

Rounding four to the green, Duston and Wisecarver front row, it was “The Outlaw” who would take the early lead. The two would pull away from the field as Denny Benjamin and Larry Moran battled side-by-side for third. Troubles for Moran as he would fall back in the field leaving the door open for David Hittle to set his sights on Benjamin. The two battled back and forth with Hittle ultimately passing Benjamin in turns three and four. Nevertheless, continuing the reign up front it was “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver who would pick up his first win at the Hill this season. Finishing second, with a strong run all night, was Robin Duston followed by David Hittle, Denny Benjamin and Jesse Wardell.

The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of 16. Setting fast time with a 16.183 was Mike Lonas, who would also pick up the night’s dash win while David Potts won the only heat race.

Setting the pace to the start was Lonas with Bob Daugherty outside. Taking the top spot as the green dropped was Lonas with Daugherty looking in. Not far behind a battle between David and Kevin Potts would ensue for third.  After a caution filled event, troubles while under yellow would send, then second place, Daugherty to the pits. Once back under green, it was last year’s track champion Mike Lonas, starting just where he left off, in victory lane. Second went to David Potts, third Kevin Potts, fourth Kyle Michalo and fifth Timmy Glassburn.

With a new sponsor for the 2016 season, the Rigz Towing modlites had a field of 18. Heat race winners were Kacy Campbell and Doug Drown placing them on the front row for the night’s feature event. As the green dropped, Campbell would take the early lead with Drown working his bumper. However, Tracy Fritter, sitting third, had other plans as he took over second and ultimately the lead leaving Campbell and Drown to battle it out for second. After a caution with two to go, a green checkered finish would ensue with Tracy Fritter picking up the win followed by Campbell, Drown, Dillion Rittenhouse and Keith Smith.

 Also picking up a new sponsor for the year, the Short Track Fire & Rescue mini stocks had the largest field of the night with 24 cars. Picking up wins in each of the three heat races were Greg Thompson, Colton St. John and Matt Miller while Cory Staley would claim the last chance race. With the field set, the green was out and it was Thompson to the lead. As the top three cars stretched their lead over the rest of the field, troubles would end the night early for Thompson. Continuing under green for a caution free feature, Colton St. John would take over the lead and go on to pick up his first win of the season. Finishing second was Matt Miller followed by Zach Chaffin, Michael Rose and Edwin Geary.

The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had field of four. Bringing the field to the green was Travis Winterringer. As the field went into turn one, 2015 track champion, Rolly Heyder, would have troubles causing him to spin collecting Winterringer ultimately sending him pit side early. Back under green, John Large would take the top spot over Heyder working his way to his first victory of the season. Rounding out the field was Jacob Neff.

Packed House for Weekend on the Hill

September 20, 2015

            As the season comes to an end, the cooler temperatures of fall nor the Saturday showers would keep the fans or cars from packing Hilltop Speedway for the 7th Annual Weekend on the Hill. With two complete shows on the agenda including the first race for flat karts as well as a $2,000 to win in the Holmes Tire late models, fans were in for two nights of non-stop racing action.

There was a full field of Holmes Tire Lates Models with twenty-nine on Friday and twenty-two on Saturday for the $2,000 to win. Friday night’s fast qualifier was Larry Bellman, while “Flyin” Ryan Markham picked up fast time Saturday with a 14.920. Heat race winners on Friday were DJ Miller, “Fast” Freddie Carpenter and Ryan Markham. Dash winner was Mike Lonas with JP Roberts picking up the b-main. Saturday night heat race winners were Ronnie Mayle and Shane Campbell while the dash win went to Vic Hottinger and Cameron Hague won the b-main.

            Coming to the green on Friday night it was Mike Lonas who would jump out front and that is where he would remain leading every lap and picking up the win. However, as Saturday’s field approached the start, it was “Flyin” Ryan Markham taking the lead over pole sitter Vic Hottinger. With Markham out front, a three way battle for second would ensue between Hottinger, Corey Conley and Freddie Carpenter. Claiming second and placing his sights on Markham was Conley who would battle through lap traffic to the bumper of the 5M. Caution would come out with nine to go, bunching the field back up. Back under green, Markham and Conley would continue to battle side-by-side for the lead when with five to go “The Flyin Ace” Conley would take the lead as well as pick up the $2,000 to win.

The modified division had a field of twenty-six on Friday and a field of eighteen on Saturday. Setting fast time Friday was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse with a 16.137, Saturday it was “The Batman” Scott Peltz with a 16.520. Friday night heat race winners were Nathon Loney and Jimmy Smith, dash winner was Chris Basich with Eric Singhaus winning the b-main. On Saturday, it was Darrick Hubbard and “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter picking up heat race wins with Kevin Morehouse picking up the dash.

            Bringing the field down the backstretch, it was Chris Basich on the pole for Friday’s feature. Basich would jump out front early and battle with “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse for the lead would ensue. Although battling side-by-side, it was Morehouse ultimately taking the lead and the win. During Saturday’s feature, it was Kevin Morehouse who would take the early lead. However, challenging and battling on Morehouse’s bumper was “The Batman” Peltz looking to take over the lead. With Peltz unable to capitalize, it was Kevin Morehouse who picked up back to back feature wins, making it his forty-seventh overall win.  

            Rolling onto the track were the Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks with a field of seventeen on Friday and fourteen on Saturday. Picking up fast time on Friday was Brandon Gardner with a 16.937. Heat race wins went to David Potts and the dash win going to Mike Lonas. Setting fast time Saturday was Mike Lonas with a 17.145, while Kevin Potts picked up the heat win and Kyle Moore winning the dash.

            With the features set, Mike Lonas brought the field to the start on Friday night. Taking the lead, Lonas would be challenged by Kyle Moore multiple times. Able to take the lead on lap eight, Moore would be unable retain the top spot and fend off Lonas as he would regain the lead and pick up the win. As Saturday’s feature was brought to the green, it was Moore and Lonas on the front row. Looking for redemption from the night before, Moore would take the lead as Lonas and Matt Shroyer battled for second. Once in second, Shroyer would make an attempt to take the lead from Moore. However, contact off of four would send Shroyer pit side with a flat and Moore to the tail with only three laps to go. With the race back under way, Lonas would pick up back to back wins placing the 11A back in victory lane.

            The modlites also made an appearance this weekend with a 12-car field on Friday and a 5-car field on Saturday. Tracy Fritter and Nick Crider picked up the heat race wins on Friday while Fritter won the heat on Saturday. With the fields set, it was Tracy Fritter who would demonstrate his skill in the class as he would pick up back to back feature wins.

            The Winning Edge Auto Body mini stock division had full field of cars with twenty on Friday and fifteen on Saturday. Friday night heat race winners were Jerry Adkins, Matt Miller and Nova Martin, while Saturday night heat race winners were Kevin Markey and Brad Workman. The field was set for Friday’s feature as Jerry Adkins brought them to the green. After fending off charges from Doug Hensel, it was Adkins picking up the win. Bringing the field to the start of Saturday’s 12-lap feature event was Kevin Markey. A battle between Jason St. John and Billy Parsons would ultimately place St. John in victory lane.

The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a 6-car field on Friday and a 5-car field on Saturday. Picking up the heat race win on both Friday and Saturday was Rolly Heyder setting him on the pole for both feature events. As Heyder brought the field to the start of Friday night’s feature event he would take the lead and go on to pick up yet another win for the season. With Saturday’s feature set, it again was Rolly Heyder to the lead. However, after troubles the night before, Winterringer would challenge Heyder for the top spot.

Running a single show on Friday night and making their first appearance of the year, the flat karts had a field of 21. With three heats, winners were Chuck Conway, Brandon Gardner and Scott Delaney while Derek Davis picked up the last chance race. Bringing the field to the green was Conway, battling for the lead was Delaney who would take the top spot coming off of two. Meanwhile, working his way through the field to fifth from his tenth place starting position was Derek Davis who would unfortunately be charged with a caution and would have to again restart tail. Back under green, it was Scott Delaney to the lead and that is where he would remain as the checkered came out, picking up his first feature win at the Hill.

On Saturday, the JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Construction mini wedges were in action with a field of 13.

As the two were side-by-side, Moore would edge out to take the top spot as caution would come out. Back under green, Moore again took the lead as Lonas and Mike Basich battled for second. With Lonas sliding up in two, Basich was able to take advantage and get the run for position. Meanwhile, challenging door-to-door, Vic Hottinger would take fourth from Craig Wolford coming off of two and begin to close in on Lonas for third when caution would once again come out.

However, after a bobble off two and contact on the front stretch, Lonas would fall to third as Bob Daugherty would take second, looking in at the top spot. However, as laps dwindled, it was Kevin Potts who would pick up the win that he would dedicate to his daughter Holly. Second was Daugherty, third Mike Lonas, fourth Bob Chilcote and rounding out the top five was John Wilson. The 2015 Holmes Pest Control street Stock champion is Mike Lonas.

Conley Repeats Visit to Victory Lane as “The Logger” Doubles up on the Night

August 9, 2015

            As the race season is coming to an end, what better way to spend it then with the family at the Hill for Kid’s night before next week’s season championship.

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction mini wedges had a field of twelve. Heat race winners were Brayden Renfrew and Reese Bollinger, setting the front row of the night’s feature event.

            As the field went green, it was Renfrew to the lead while Bollinger, Braxton Wilson and Zoe Stafford would battle for second through fourth. Caution would come out as Wilson came to a stop on the front stretch and before the field would go back under green, Hutchinson, Wilson, and Stafford would all pull to the infield unable to continue. Back underway Renfrew again took the lead. Battling for second was Bollinger and Karyssa Beagle with Bollinger able to hold on. Nevertheless, leading every lap green to checkered and picking up the win was Brayden Renfrew followed by Reese Bollinger, Karyssa Beagle, Donnie Danley and Levi Crider.

            Setting fast time among 25 in the Holmes Tire late model division was Michael Davis with a 14.784. Picking up heat race wins were Craig Wolford and Ty Myers with Kyle Moore winning the dash and TJ Watson picking up the last chance race.

            Bringing the field to the start of their 25-lap feature event was Moore. Out front early was Vic Hottinger who would have Corey Conley a close second. The two would go side-by-side as another top five battle would ensue between Moore and Michael Davis for third and fourth. Edging out over Davis was Moore who would turn to Conley and the second position. However, Conley still working Hottinger, would ultimately result in a 3-way battle with Conley taking the lead on lap seven. Working his way through lap traffic and going on to pick up back-to-back wins was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley. Rounding out the top five was Kyle Moore, Vic Hottinger, Mike Basich and Ty Myers.

            The Finish Line Auto Body modifieds had a field of 25 with Chris Basich setting fast time with a 16.025. Heat race one winner was Brad Mickley, heat two winner was Darrick Hubbard, while the dash win went to Jimmy Smith and last chance winner was Codi Eaton.

            The field was set with Jimmy Smith on the pole and Kevin Morehouse outside. The green was out and a battle for the top spot began with Morehouse working his way around Smith. With the laps dwindling, working his way from a tenth place starting position and cracking the top five was Norm Aronhalt. After placing a substantial lead over the field, Morehouse would begin to work his way through lap traffic allowing Smith an opportunity to close in. However, Smith was unable to gain enough ground. Going on to victory lane and adding another win to his sesason was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse with Smith second, Robin Duston third, Chris Basich fourth and Norm Aronhalt fifth.

            With the car count back up this week, there were 16 modlites in the division. Picking up heat one was Kacy Campbell with heat two going to Kevin Morehouse. As Campbell brought the field to the start of their 12-lap feature event it was Morehouse who would take an early lead. Running a close second and looking in at the leader was Brian Stuhldreher who would unfortunately have troubles bringing out the caution and ultimately heading pit side. Back under green, Nick Crider would be sitting second when Tracy Fritter, from a sixth place starting position, would challenge and take second. However, picking up the win after pulling double duty for the night was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse. Rounding out the top five was Tracy Fritter, Nick Crider, Kacy Campbell and Joe Burkhead.

            A field of 20 made up the Holmes Pest Control street stock division where Mike Lonas would set fast time with a 16.927. Heat race winners were Chase Alexander and Jon Preston with John Wilson winning the dash.

            Setting the pace to the green was Wilson, who would go side by side with David Potts for the lead with Potts edging out. A battle would then ensue between Bob Daugherty and Wilson for second with Wilson picking off both Daugherty and Potts coming off of four to take the lead. As Daugherty would also work around Potts for second, a three-way battle for third through fifth would continue between Kevin Potts, David Potts and Mike Lonas. After taking over third, Lonas would set his sights on Daugherty while Wilson had a straight away lead over the field. Coming around to take the white flag, trouble would strike Wilson yet again sending him into the infield providing Lonas the opportunity to get around Daugherty to pick up the win. David Potts picked up third, Kevin Potts fourth and Bob Chilcote fifth.

            The Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks had a 22-car field with heat race wins going to John Ohse, Colton St. John and Jerry Adkins. Rounding turn four to the green, it was Ohse and St. John battling for the lead. However, troubles for Ohse would cause him to slow in the middle of one and two bringing out the caution. With the green back out, it was Colton St. John to the lead while Jason St. John and Jerry Adkins would run side-by-side for second.

Conley Picks up Back-to-Back Wins

August 1, 2015

            In a collaborated effort with Muskingum County Speedway for their 33rd Annual Jim Dunn Memorial Race, Hilltop Speedway ran a regular non-points show on Friday providing drivers the opportunity to run the memorial race on Saturday. Although a regular race night, Muskingum County Speedway was offering provisional positions to the highest finisher at the Hill who does not make the Jim Dunn Memorial in late models, modified, street stocks and mini stocks.  

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A&B Roofing and Construction mini wedges had an 11-car field. Winners of each heat race and making up the front row of the night’s feature event were Zoe Stafford and Brayden Renfrew.

            Rounding four to the green, it was Zoe Stafford who would take an early lead with Braxton Wilson a close second. The two would battle it out, back and forth, until a caution would come out forcing Stafford to restart on the tail. Back under green, it was Wilson out front as the battle for position continued between Brayden Renfrew and Nick Large for second and Karyssa Beagle and Zoe Stafford for fourth. Nevertheless, picking up his sixth feature win in a row and fourteenth overall was “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson followed by Nick Large, Brayden Renfrew, Zoe Stafford and Karyssa Beagle.

            Setting fast time among the 20 Holmes Tire late models was “The Flyin Ace” Corey Conley with a 15.097, who would also pick up the night’s dash win. Heat race winners were TJ Watson and Rick Conley.

            Brining the field down the backstretch to the start of their 25-lap feature was Conley who would take the lead. After a rough start, racing was under way with Conley once again out front. A three way battle for second through fourth between Mike Basich, Rick Mardis, and Vic Hottinger would ensue with Mardis taking second. Basich would then work around Hottinger and back up to the bumper of Mardis. Caution would come out bunching the field up, back under way, Conley again took the lead as Mardis and Basich would battle second. However, a caution on a lap car, would force Mardis pit side. Once more, under green, it was “The Flyin Ace” after leading every lap of a caution filled feature picking up the win. With a late pass Hottinger would pick up second as Basich, TJ Watson and Kevin Davis rounded out the top five.

            The Finish Line Auto Body modifieds had a 17-car field with “The Batman” Scott Peltz setting fast time with a 16.422. Heat race winners were Chris Basich and “Rockin” Robin Duston while “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith picked up the dash.

            Setting the pace to the start of their 20-lap feature event was Smith who would jump out front over the rest of the field. With Smith out front, the battle would ensue between Peltz and Bruce Miller for second. Also, making some last lap passes, Nathon Loney would advance around Miller and Eric Singhaus to crack the top three. However, demonstrating the ability to defend the top spot it was “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith claiming another win for the season. Second went to Scott Peltz, third to Nathon Loney, fourth to Bruce Miller and fifth to Eric Singhaus.

            Eleven cars made up the Holmes Pest Control street stock division with Brandon Gardner setting fast time with a 17.398. Picking up the heat race win was Mike Lonas while Dave Potts picked up the dash win.

            On the front row of the night’s feature even was Potts and Bob Daugherty. With the green out, the two would battle side-by-side for the lead. However making a strong run on the bottom of the track to take the lead was John Wilson. Also making their way through the field was Mike Lonas and Kevin Potts who would challenge one another as Wilson pulled away. Unfortunately, problems would send Wilson to the pits, placing Lonas on point for the restart. Back under green, Lonas would remain out front adding another win to his season. Finishing second was Kevin Potts, third was David Potts, fourth was Brandon Gardner and finishing fifth was Bob Daugherty.

            Up next were the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks with a 15-car field. Each of the two heat race wins would go to Jerry Adkins and Kevin Markey. With the field set, the green was out with Adkins taking the top spot as Casey Butler would work around Markey for second. However, troubles for Butler would bring out the caution as he would sit in the middle of turn one and two unable to continue. Back underway, it was Adkins to the lead as a three way battle between Markey, Chris Priebe and Colton St. John would ensue for second through fourth but unable to gain on the leader. Thus, after leading every lap it was Jerry Adkins who would add to his wins this season. Rounding out the top five was Chris Priebe, Colton St. John, Kevin Markey and Caleb Spencer.

            The modlite division had a mere six car field with Tracy Fritter picking up the only heat race win. After an invert of the heat race finish, the feature was underway with Josh Crider on the pole. With the green out, Josh took the lead. However, it was short lived, as Nick Crider took over the top spot with Tracy Fritter a close second. After putting almost a half track between them and the rest of the field, it was Nick Crider picking up the win followed by Fritter. Third went to Ray Heskett, fourth to JB Barton and fifth went to Tanner McLoughlin.

            Rolley Heyder would pick up the only heat race win in the field of seven Bugs-R-Gone trucks. Bringing the field to the start was Heyder, who would take the lead and that is where he would remain, leading every lap green to checkered adding to his exceptional season. Finishing top five was Travis Winterringer, Dwayne Powell, Tome Garlick and Jerry Gardner.

Heyder Claims $400 Pay Day in Bugs-R-Gone Invitational

July 26, 2015

            Dirt track racing would not be what it is without the fans that come out to support their local drivers. Saturday night on the Hill honored the importance of the fan as it was Fan Apprieciation night as well as the $400 to win Bugs-R-Gone truck invitational.

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction mini wedges had a ten car field all ready to hit the track. With two heats, it was Zoe Stafford and Braxton Wilson each picking up a win.

            With the field set, the wedge 10-lap feature was underway. Jumping out to the initial lead was Stafford with Braxton Wilson in a close second. Fending off challenges, Zoe would work to maintain the top spot. However, eventually able to work his way around Stafford and go on to pick up yet another win this season was “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson followed by Zoe Stafford, Karyssa Beagle, Donnie Danley and finishing fifth was Reece Bollinger.

            With a time of 15.236, it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley setting fast time in the Holmes Tire late model division which had a field of 15. Picking up the only heat race win was “The Moon Man” Thomas Baker, while Conley picked up the dash setting him on the pole for the night’s 25-lap feature event.

            Bringing the field to the green, Conley would take the lead. With Conley out front a battle for second would ensue behind him between the 33X of Ty Myers and the 4H of Vic Hottinger. As the two would battle back and forth, Myers would get the advantage and get around Hottinger for second. However, not long after troubles would send Myers pit side. Back underway, it was Conley with the lead and Hottinger working to close the gap but unable to do so as the checkered would fly and “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley would pick up the win. Finishing third was TJ Watson, fourth was Mike Hutchinson, and fifth went to Craig Wolford.

            A field of twelve made up the nights Finish Line Auto Body modified division, with “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse setting fast time with a 16.263. The heat race win went to “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt while Morehouse picked up the win in the dash.

            With the field set, the green was out and it was Morehouse taking the lead. Looking in at the top spot was “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith who would make multiple attempts at reigning in Morehouse. However, after leading every lap from green to checker, it was “The Logger” who would pull a 4.5 second lead and go on to pick up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was Jimmy Smith, Robin Duston, Hilton Eppley and Bruce Miller.

            Out next were the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a 14-car field. Setting fast time for the division was Mike Lonas. Heat race winner was Brian Simpson with David Potts picking up the dash win, setting himself on the pole of the night’s feature event.

            As David Potts brought the field down the backstretch to the start, the green was out and it was “Chilly” Bob Chilcote to the lead. Making a move to the front was Mike Lonas, however, after contact with Kevin Potts he would be forced to restart tail. With the green out once more, Chilcote continued to remain out front going on to pick up his second feature win this season. Chilcote was followed by Kevin Potts, Dustin Daugherty, Mike Lonas and Brian Simpson.

            Nine trucks made up the field for the $400 to win Bugs-R-Gone invitational. Winning the only heat for the night was Rolly Heyder. With Heyder setting the pace to the green, he would take the lead over the rest of the field. Meanwhile, battle for positions second through forth would ensue as Joey Heyder and Travis Winterringer would work their way around Josey Lillibridge. Nevertheless, after putting a half of a track between himself and the rest of the field it was Rolly Heyder picking up the $400 pay day. Second went to Joey Heyder, third to Travis Winterringer, fourth to Josey Lillibridge and fifth was Jerry Gardner

            The up and coming mod lite division had a field of 13 with Tracy Fritter and Joe Burkhead each picking up a heat race win. With Fritter on point, the green was out for their feature event. An early pass, from the fourth place starting position, Nick Crider would take the lead. Caution would come out as Tanner McLoughlin would lose it in turn four and head pit side. Back under green, Crider was once again in the lead and that was where he would remain picking up the win. Second went to Tracy Fritter, third to Brandon Shaw, fourth to Joe Burkhead and fifth to Brian Stuhldreher.

            Last division for the night was the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks with a 21-car field. In three heat races winners were Terry Adkins, Blaine Markey and Kevin Markey. As the green came out for their 12-lap feature event it was Terry Adkins who would jump out to an early lead. Nevertheless, the first week back in his own car, it was Blaine Markey who would challenge Adkins for the top spot. As the two would battle lap for lap for position, Jerry Adkins would work his way through the field from his ninth place starting spot. After a hard fought battle, it was Terry Adkins able to hold of Blaine Markey for the win. Finishing third was Jerry Adkins, fourth was Kevin Markey and fifth was Jason St. John.

Rose Claims $400 to Win Mini Stock Special

It was a perfect, summer, Saturday night for a little dirt track racing on the Hill. With 126 drivers entered in the pits, the fans were in for a spectacular night of racing in all divisions including the $400 to win for the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks.

The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction mini wedges had 14 youngsters ready and eager to take the track. Heat race wins went to Nick Large and Braxton Wilson, making up the front row of the night’s feature event. After a struggle to get the initial lap in, the green was finally out with Nick Large taking the lead. However, not far behind was Wilson, working the bumper of Large, ultimately passing for the lead down the backstretch. With a caution and single file restart, it again was Wilson out front with Zoe Stafford looking in at the second place of Large. A pass coming out of four, Zoe would take second as Large would fall back in the field and bring out the caution. Back under green, it was “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson picking up yet another win for the season followed by Zoe Stafford, Brayden Renfrew, Karyssa Beagle, and Brooklyn Wilson.

            The first of the large car divisions to see the track was the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a field of 20. It was Mike Lonas setting fast time with a 16.995 as he would also pick up the dash win. Heat race winners were Tim Penley and Dustin Daugherty.

            After a caution filled start, the green was out and Lonas took the lead. Remaining a close second and all over Lonas was the 21D of Bob Daugherty, who would do everything he could to take the stop spot. Meanwhile, after an early caution, forcing him to restart tail, Bob Chilcote had worked his way back through the field battling Jeff Penley for a top five position. As the laps dwindled, Lonas’s lead extended putting himself back in victory lane picking up the win. Second went to Bob Daugherty, third to Dave Potts, fourth Kevin Potts and fifth to Bob Chilcote.

            The Holmes Tire late models had a field of 23 with Mike Basich setting fast time with a 14.982. Heat race winners were Rick Mardis, Sonny Conley and it was Vic Hottinger picking up the dash win. Picking up the last chance race was Rodney Kimes.

            With Hottinger setting the pace to the green, he would jump out front to take an early lead. However, Rick Conley and Mike Basich were riding the bumper of Hottinger, making it a 3-way battle for the lead. With six laps in, Conley was able to pass and take the lead as Craig Wolford would work Basich for third. However, unable to do so, Basich would ultimately battle his way past Hottinger and set his sights on Conley. After a successful pass for Basich, unfortunate troubles with nineteen laps in would send Hottinger to the infield and bring out the caution. With the field set for the restart, the green was back out and it again was Basich to the front and that is where he would remain going on to pick up the night’s feature win followed by Rick Conley, Thomas Baker, Rick Mardis and Craig Wolford.

            The Finish Line Auto Body modifieds had a fast time of 16.19 set by “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse among a field of 20. Picking up heat wins were Bruce Miller, Mark Dickson with “The Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith picking up the dash win. The last chance race win went to Bob Moskey.

            On the pole, bringing the field to the green was Jimmy Smith who would take the lead over the field while battle for position ensued behind. Running a close second and looking in at the top spot was “The Hitman” Jess Hartman. Also challenging through the top five was that of Kevin Morehouse working past Chris Basich and Norm Aronhalt to a third place position. With close to half the race, Hartman would make his move challenging Smith for the lead. A successful pass would not only put Hartman in the lead but also go on to put him in victory lane picking up the win. Rounding out the top five was Jimmy Smith, Kevin Morehouse, Chris Basich, and Mark Dickson.

            A full field of 18 modlites would see “The Hitman” Jess Hartman, pulling double duty for the night, picking up a heat win as well as Brian Stuhldreher. Setting the pace to the start of their 12-lap feature event was Hartman who would also jump out to an early lead. In a very close second was Stuhldreher, who was all over Hartman looking to take the lead. However, unable to do so, Stuhldreher would find himself in a battle with Nick Crider for second with Crider making a successful pass. Once around Stuhldreher, Crider would set his sights on Hartman. Running up on Hartman after a restart, Crider was able to surpass Hartman to pick up the win. Finishing second was Brian Stuhldreher, third was Jess Hartman, fourth was Brandon Shaw and fifth was Tommy Johnson.

            The Winning Edge mini stocks had a field of 24 for their $400 to win special. With three heats, winners were Michael Rose, Edwin Geary and Tyler Parsons while Tim Morris picked up the last chance race.

            Bringing the field to the start, it was Chris Priebe on pole, after a top 6 invert, out front with Tyler Parsons a close second. However, troubles on the backstretch would provide Parsons the opportunity to take the lead. After gathering back up, Preibe was back challenging for position, when a caution and rollover on the front stretch would send Priebe to the tail and Parsons pit side. With only four laps in, Michael Rose was not on point and out to the lead. Challenging for the top spot was Jerry Adkins who worked the bumper of Rose. Able to fend off to maintain position, Terry Adkins would look to battle Jerry Adkins for second and his own possible attempt at Rose. Even with multiple challenges and a side-by-side run Adkins was unable to take the lead as it was Michael Rose who would go on to pick up the $400 to win special followed by Terry Adkins, Jerry Adkins, Nova Martin and Tim Workman.

            Rounding out the night’s events were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with Joey Heyder picking up the only heat race win. With the field set, Joey Heyder would jump out to the early lead as Rolly Hedyer, Travis Winterringer, and Josey Lillibridge had a three way battle for second. Edging out and working around Joey for the lead was Rolly Heyder. As Joey fell to second he would find himself in a side-by-side battle with Josey Lillibridge to hold his position. Nevertheless, out to a commanding lead and regaining his position in victory lane as the checkered dropped was Rolly Heyder. Rounding out the top five was Joey Heyder, Josey Lillibridge, Jerry Gardner, and Travis Winterringer.

Hottinger, Chilcote and Teeters Pick up First Wins at the Hill

July 12, 2015

            All seven divisions were in action for the Fin Feather & Fur sponsored Veteran’s Appreciation Day, including the Holmes Tire late models with a $1,500 to win. Racing action was sure to excite as the Hill had its largest car count thus far this season with 125.         

            Starting the night’s events off was the Holmes Tire late models with a 20-car field. Setting the mark in qualifying was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley with a 14.813. Heat race wins went to Rick Conley and Thomas Baker while Mike Lonas picked up the dash win placing him on the pole of the night’s feature event.

            Bringing the field to the start of their 25 lap, $1,500 to win feature event was Lonas who would jump out to the early lead. In spite of that, challenging and making it a side-by-side battle for the lead was Corey Conley who would edge out Lonas to take over top spot. As the battle continued, Lonas would again take the lead over Conley as they drove through lap traffic. At the halfway mark, Vic Hottinger would make his move setting his sights on Conley and the second position. With a successful pass, it was Lonas out front and Hottinger sitting second when a caution would come out forcing the field to bunch back up. The green flew once again and Hottinger would challenge Lonas for the top spot, eventually taking the lead coming off of turn four. Thus, as the checkered come out it was “Vicious” Vic Hottinger picking up the $1,500 to win and his first feature win at Hilltop. Rounding out the top five was Mike Lonas, Corey Conley, Ty Myers and Rick Conley.

            There were 14 youngsters ready to battle it out in the JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A&B Roofing and Construction mini wedges. Picking up heat races wins was Braxton Wilson and Karyssa Beagle, setting them on the front row of the feature. Out front early was Wilson. After multiple cautions, the green was back out and again it was Wilson out to the lead followed by Reece Bollinger who was working hard at taking the top spot. However, unable to do so, “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson would pick up yet another win this season. Top five went to Reece Bollinger, Donnie Danley, Brayden Renfrew and Carson Hubbard.

            Next to roll onto the track was the Finish Line Auto Body modifieds with the “Toboso Bullet” Jimmy Smith setting fast time with a 16.047. Heat race winners were “Rockin” Robin Duston and Nathon Loney while Chris Basich picked up the dash win.

            Pole setter, Chris Basich, brought the field to the green, jumping out early. With Basich out front, it was Jimmy Smith who would begin working his way into the top two around Scott Peltz and Bob Page. In addition, “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt would begin to make his move through the field working himself up to third from a tenth place starting position. Neverthless, after leading every lap, it was Chris Basich who would pick up the win followed by Jimmy Smith, Norman Aronhalt, Robin Duston and Scott Peltz.

            The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of 16 with Mike Lonas fast qualifier with a 16.827. The only heat race win went to Kevin Potts with “Chilly” Bob Chilcote picking up the dash win.        

            Setting the pace to the green was Chilcote with Dave Potts sitting outside. As the green dropped, Chilcote jumped out front as the battle for positions would ensue behind between Daugherty, Shroyer and Potts. Meanwhile, Lonas would begin working on Chilcote for the top spot. Lap after lap, Lonas would charge “Chilly” yet unable to capitalize. Able to hold his position, even after breaking the left front, Bob Chilcote would go on to take the checkered and pick up his first feature win at Hilltop. Mike Lonas was second, Matt Shroyer third, Bob Daugherty fourth and Kevin Potts rounded out the top five.

            With the largest car count this season at 22, the modlite division had heat race wins go to Nick Crider, Jeff Teeters, and Jason Darocha. The last chance win went to Eddie Smith. With the field set, the green was out and it was Jeff Teeters, in his first appearance, who would take the lead followed by Nick Crider. As the laps dwindled, Teeters would remain out front and go on to pick up his first feature win at the Hill. Second went to Nick Crider, third to Joe Burkhead, fourth to Jason Darocha and fifth to Rory Reed.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a field of eight with Rolly Heyder picking up the only heat race win. After inverting the heat finish for the starting line-up for the feature, it was Dwayne Powell bringing the field to the green. With two restarts before a lap was in, the green was finally out and it was Jerry Gardner who would jump out front. Working his way up through the field from tail was Travis Winterringer who would battle with Joey Heyder for second. As the battle heated, trouble would cause Heyder to spin coming off of four to take the checkered. Nevertheless, after leading every lap, it was Jerry Gardner picking up the win followed by Travis Winterringer, Rolly Heyder, Josey Lillibridge and Joey Heyder.

            Rounding out the night’s events were the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks with a field of 20. Heat race winners were Terry Adkins, Jerry Adkins and Kevin Markey. With the heats in the books, the top eight mini stocks would invert for the start of the feature, placing Kendra St. John on the pole. As she brought the field to the start, it was Nova Martin who would work around St. John to take the lead. However, after starting positions of seventh and eighth, Jerry Adkins and Terry Adkins would begin working their way through the field. Up to second Jerry Adkins would set his sight on Martin ultimately taking over the top spot and the win with Terry Adkins not far behind claiming the second spot. Finishing third was Nova Martin, fourth Brad Workman and fifth Blake Morris.

Carpenter, The “Kamikaze Kid”, Crowned King of the Hill

July 3, 2015

            After weeks of what seemed to be non-stop rain, racing action finally returned to Hilltop Speedway. The timing could not of been more perfect, as cars packed into the pits and fans in the stands to see who would be crowned King of the Hill and take home the $5,000 to win in the late model division.

            Starting the night off was the Holmes Tire late models with a field of 39. After four qualifying groups, it was Rick Bond setting fast time overall with a 14.506. Heat race winners were Rick Bond, Steve Casebolt, Tim Dohm, and Devin Moran. Winners of two last chance races were “The General” George Lee and JR Gentry.

            Bringing the field down the backstretch to the green was Tyler Carpenter with Devin Moran outside. Taking the lead was Carpenter with Moran doing what he could to overtake the top spot. As the two would come up on lap traffic, Moran would close the gap. However, a caution would come out with Moran being charged and deciding to go pit side rather than restart tail. With the field bunched back up for the restart, Tim Dohm was all over Carpenter’s bumper, ultimately passing him and taking the lead going into lap 18. While the battle for the lead continued, Corey Conley and Steve Casebolt would battle for third as Greg Oakes would work his way into the top five from a fifteenth starting position. As Dohm and Carpenter worked for position through lap traffic, unfortunate contact with a lap car would cause Dohm to spin bringing out the caution and forcing him to the pits unable to finish. With Dohm in the pits, Carpenter would take the top spot and bring the field back under green. While battle for position continued within the top five, it was the “Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter picking up the $5,000 win and being crowned King of the Hill. Rounding out the top five was Greg Oakes, Corey Conley, Steve Casebolt and Doug Drown.

            With a field of 31, the Finish Line Auto Body modifieds were the next to roll onto the track. Setting fast time was Jimmy Smith with a time of 15.739. Picking up a heat race win each was Kevin Morehouse, Chris Basich, Anthony Kinkade and Jimmy Smith. The last chance race win went to Rory Reed.

            With the field set after redraw, it was “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt on pole with “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse outside. Out front early was Aronhalt, while Morehouse and Jimmy Smith battled out second. Caution would come out sending Anthony Kinkade to the tail and bunching the field back up, allowing Morehouse to set his attention to Aronhalt. As the green came back out, Morehouse would take over the top spot while Smith worked Aronhalt for second. Using lap traffic to ensure his lead over Smith, it was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse going on to pick up his 41st modified win. Second went to Jimmy Smith, third to “Fast” Freddie Carpenter, fourth, from the tail, Anthony Kinkade, and fifth to Norm Aronhalt.

            The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of 20 for the night. It was Brandon Gardner setting fast time for the division with a 16.830 as well as picking up one of the two heat race wins. The other heat win went to Dave Potts.

            Potts, sitting pole, would bring the field to the green with Mike Lonas jumping out front early. However, on the bumper of Lonas, was Brandon Gardner who was determined to take over the top spot. The two would battle, side-by-side, Gardner would take the lead coming off of turn four as a flat tire would send Lonas to the pad. Able to change tires and make it for the restart, Lonas would have to restart on the tail. With the green back out, it was Gardner out front, while battle for positions would continue between John Wilson and Kevin Potts. Also working his way back through the field was Lonas, who would ultimately run out of laps; as Brandon Gardner would go on to pick up the win. Finishing second was John Wilson, third was Mike Lonas, fourth Kevin Potts and fifth Bob Daugherty.

            Rounding out the night were the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks with a field of 22. Picking up the heat race wins were Michael Rose, James Priebe, and Terry Adkins.

            Setting the pace to the green was James Priebe, who would take the lead followed by Jason St. John and Terry Adkins. As the three battled it out for the lead, they would go three wide a number of times during the race’s duration. Working through lap traffic Priebe would maintain the lead; however, Adkins was not far behind. A caution would allow the field to be bunched back up and provide Adkins the opportunity needed to take over the lead. Nevertheless, the battle continued for position, when contact coming off of four would cause Priebe to roll on the front stretch and freeze the field’s finish. Therefore, picking up the win was Terry Adkins followed by Jason St. John, James Priebe, Tyler Parsons and Jerry Adkins.

Potts Breaks Streak and Picks up $1,000 to Win

With the sun shining, fans filling the stands, and 107 cars in the pits, racing action was sure to excite at the Hill for the $1,000 to win street stock invitational.

The Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks had a field of 17 for the night’s $1,000 to win invitational. Setting fast time in the 21D Bob Daugherty with a time of 16.938. Picking up the heat win was Bob Chilcote with the dash win going to John Wilson placing him on the pole for the night’s feature event.

            Bringing the field to the start of the 20-lap feature was Wilson with Bob Daugherty on the outside. Jumping out front was Wilson, who would work lap for lap maintaining that top spot. After leading the first 19 laps, Wilson would take the white flag, then trouble would strike sending Wilson to the wall bringing out the caution. With the field reset, the green was back out with Kevin Potts on point for the one-lap shootout. Picking up the $1,000 to win and breaking Mike Lonas’ win streak was Kevin Potts followed by Dave Potts, Trae Schonauer, Jon Preston, and Quinten Lewis.   

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction Mini Wedges had a total of ten wedges with Braxton Wilson and Zoe Stafford picking up each of the heat wins.

            As the green dropped, it was Kyle Moore, sitting on the outside pole, who would take the top spot over Duncan. Lap for lap, the battle for position would continue when trouble for Moore would bring out the caution and send him pit side for the night. With the field reset, it was “Chargin” Charlie Duncan who would bring the field back under green and ultimately pick up his first win at the Hill this season. Rounding out the top five was Corey Conley, Ty Myers, TJ Watson, and Rick Conley.

            With the largest field of the night with 25, the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks had three heats with wins going to Jerry Adkins, John Maki, and Blaine Markey. The last chance race win went to Matt Miller. With the green out it was Adkins who would jump out front.

Conley Picks up Win While Lonas and Heyder Continue Streaks

May 24, 2015

With 117 cars in the pits and the stands packed with fans, Saturday night was filled with non-stop racing, as seven different divisions were in action on the Hill. The night’s agenda included autograph night for the fans allowing them to meet their favorite drivers as well as the Bugs-R-Gone truck make-up feature.

The JPR Auto & Tire and A&B Construction mini wedge division had a total of 15. Heat race winners were Brayden Renfrew and Zoe Stafford.

Bringing the youngsters to the green, Renfrew and Stafford would battle for the top spot, while Braxton Wilson worked his way through the field from the tail. A caution would send Stafford to the tail and move Wilson to second. With race back underway, “The Dominator” Wilson, would move to the inside of Renfrew and take the lead, picking up back to back wins. Finishing third was Karyssa Beagle, fourth Nick Large, and fifth to Reece Bollinger.

Setting fast time in the Holmes Tire late model division was “The General” George Lee with a 14.834. Heat race winners were Rick Mardis and Vic Hottinger with the dash win going to Kyle Moore.

Bringing the field of 21 late models to the start was Moore, who would jump out front early. With Moore in the top spot, it was Lee, Corey Conley, Alan Baker and Todd Brennon battling for position when a caution would come out with four laps in. As the green came back out, it was again Moore to the front. However, Conley would make a hard charge to second looking for the lead when the yellow would come back out. With the field bunched back up, the green was out and Moore would once more take the lead. However, “The Flying Ace” now with a clear lane was able to challenge Moore and take the lead as well as the checkered. Rounding out the top five was George Lee, Alan Baker, and Mike Lonas.

Next to hit the track was the Finish Line Auto Body modifieds with a field of 20. Fast qualifier for the division was Jimmy Smith with a 16.012. Picking up heat race wins was Bruce Miller and Todd Swim with Norm Aronhalt winning the dash.

Setting the pace to the green, it was Jimmy Smith who would take the lead. Challenging “Rockin” Robin Duston for second was Craig Wolford when Scott Peltz would work his way up, making it a three way battle for position. With one lap to go a caution would come out forcing the field back up for a green checkered finish. As the green flew for one final lap, it was Jimmy Smith out front picking up back to back feature wins. Finishing second with a charge right at the line was Scott Peltz over Robin Duston, fourth went to Ryan Wisecarver, and fifth went to Craig Wolford.

            The Holmes Pest Control street stocks had a field of 19 with Mike Lonas setting fast time with a 16.711. Heat race wins went to Dustin Daugherty and AJ Cannon with the dash win going to Bob Chilcote.

            With Chilcote on point, leading the field down the backstretch to the green, he would take the top spot with John Wilson right on his bumper. Able to make a move up top, Wilson would pass Chilcote and take over the lead. Also, working his way through the field up to third and challenging for second was Mike Lonas. Once claiming second, Lonas would move focus onto Wilson. However, Wilson would not back down, battling Lonas side by side. Neverthless, demonstrating his dominance of the division, Mike Lonas would ultimately take the top spot and pick up his sixth win of the season. Dave Potts, Bob Daugherty, and Bob Chilcote would round out the top five.

There were eleven modlites with Nick Crider and Eddie Smith Jr. each picking up a heat win. Coming to the green, it was Crider out to an early lead with Joe Burkhead a close second. As the two pulled away from the rest of the field, it was Nick Crider would take the checkered followed by Burkhead, Evan Smith, Eddie Smith III, and Eddie Smith Jr.

The Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks had a 19 with Colton St. John and Michael Rose claiming heat race wins. With the field set, it was St. John and Rose sitting on the front row of their 12-lap feature event. As the green dropped, St. John would take the lead and that is where he would remain, leading every lap and picking up his first career win in the mini stock division. A hard fought second went to Michael Rose followed by Jason St. John, Jerry Adkins, and Kevin Markey.

The Bugs-R-Gone truck make-up race featured the Heyder boys on the front row. With the green out, Rolly Heyder would take the lead while the battle for position ensued within the top five between Joey Heyder, Cole Lillibridge, and Travis Winterringer. Troubles would send Lillibridge to the pits providing the opportunity for Winterringer to pass for second. Nevertheless, it was Rolly Heyder taking yet another checkered. Third went to Jerry Gardner, fourth to Joey Heyder, and fifth went to Josey Lillibridge.

The truck’s regular event consisted of 12 trucks with Cole Lillibridge and Rolly Heyder picking up heat race wins. As Heyder brought the field to the green, he would yet again jump out front, remaining seemingly undefeatable. Rounding out the top five was Cole Lillibridge, Travis Winterringer, Joey Heyder, and Jerry Gardner.

“Fast” Freddie Picks up Win in Modlite Special

Racing action was sure to excite at the Hill for the $400 to win Modlite special, as there were 95 cars entered in the pits.

            Starting the night’s events off were the JPR Auto & Tire and A&B Construction mini wedges with a field of 12. Heat race winners were “The Dominator” Braxton Wilson and Donnie Danley. Leading the field to the start, it was Wilson who would jump out front, leading every lap to pick up his first feature win of the year. Finishing second was Brayden Renfrew, third was Reece Bollinger, fourth was Nick Large and coming from ninth to finish in the top five was Levi Crider.

            The Holmes Tire Late Model division had a field of 20. Setting fast time for the division was JR Gentry with a 14.832, placing him in the dash. Picking up each of the heat races was “The General” George Lee and Ty Myers, while Dave Hornikel picked up the dash win.

            With Hornikel leading the field to the start of their 25-lap feature event, the green was out and racing action under way. Taking the lead on the outside was Corey Conley followed by Freddie Carpenter. The two drivers battled it out side by side for the lead. After a caution would bunch the field back up, it was Conley with the lead. However, Carpenter was not backing down; ultimately surpassing Conley. Using lap traffic to advance his lead over the field, it was “Fast” Freddie picking up the win for the second week in a row. Rounding out the top five was Corey Conley, Ty Myers, George Lee, and JR Gentry.

            The Modlite division had a field of 13 for the night’s $400 to win special. Pulling double duty and picking up one of the heat race wins was Freddie Carpenter with the second going to Kacy Campbell.

            Setting pace to the start of their 20-lap special, it was Carpenter who would take the lead. Going green to checkered, demonstrating his versatility as a driver, it was “Fast” Freddie picking up his second win of the night and first in the modlite division. Second went to Kacy Campbell, third to Nick Crider, up to fourth after starting seventh Chris Robinson, and fifth to Thomas Johnson.

            With field of 14, the Finish Line Auto Body modifieds started the night with “Rockin” Robin Duston setting fast time with a 16.441. Rory Reed picked up the only heat race while Jimmy Smith won the dash.

            As Smith set the pace to fire, he would jump out to the lead with Craig Wolford right on his bumper. With every lap Wolford would challenge Smith for the top spot while Ryan Wisecarver and Robin Duston battled it out for third. In addition, working his way up to 6th from the tail was “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt. Then with five laps to go a caution would bunch the field back up. On the restart headed into turn one Smith and Wolford would get tangled up sending Wolford to the tail. Back underway, Smith would again take the lead and go on to pick up his first feature win at the Hill this season. Second went to Ryan Wisecarver, up from the tail to third was Norm Aronhalt, fourth Jon Sluka, and fifth went to Todd Swim.

            Next to roll out onto the track were the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a field of ten. Setting fast time for the fifth week in a row was Mike Lonas with a time of 17.005. Picking up the heat race win was Jon Preston while the dash winner was Bob Chilcote.

            Bringing the field down the backstretch to the green, it was Bob Chilcote who would jump out front over Lonas. Defending the top spot, Chilcote would work at keeping Lonas behind him. However, unable to do so, Lonas would get by Chilcote as they go side by side down the backstretch. With one lap to go, the yellow would come out forcing the group to bunch back up for a one lap shootout. As the race was again underway, it was Mike Lonas, who has dominated the street stock division thus far this season, once again picking up the win. Finishing in the top five was Bob Chilcote, Dave Potts, Kevin Potts, and Richard Grogg.

            With the largest car count of all the divisions, the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks had a 26-car field. Heat race wins went to Michael Rose, Jerry Adkins, and Tyler Parsons with Trae Schonauer picking up the win in the last chance race.

            With the field set, it was Michael Rose and Jerry Adkins bringing the field to the start. As the green dropped, Rose and Adkins would battle it out for the lead. Lap for lap, battling one another side by side, Rose would edge out to take the lead. However, Adkins was not backing down, making a charge coming out of four but unable to get passed Rose who would pick up his second win of the season. Rounding out the top five was Tyler Parsons, Blaine Markey, and Jason St. John.

Rounding out the night was the Bugs-R-Gone trucks which had a field of 12. It was Rolly Heyder and Joey Heyder picking up each of the two heat races. The field was set, with the Heyder boys on the front row. However, a spontaneous down pour would force the race to be called and made up in two weeks.

“Fast” Freddie Picks up Holmes Tire Late Model $1,500 to Win

May 4, 2014

With 103 cars in the pits and fans filling the stands, the night’s events, including the Holmes Tire late model $1,500 to win special, was sure to please a fan of any age.

With 21 cars, it was Rick Bond setting fast time in the late model division with a 14.524. Heat race winners were Rick Mardis and Don Conley with Kyle Moore picking up the dash and Matt Samples claiming the last chance race.

Setting the pace for the $1,500 to win feature event was Moore, with Mike Basich on the outside. Jumping to an early lead was Moore, while “Fast” Freddie Carpenter was making his way through the field up to second. A caution would bunch the field back up and allow Carpenter to challenge Moore for the lead. As the two battled side by side, trouble for Moore would cause him to go through the infield and lose positions, placing Carpenter in the lead. However, “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley, working on a repeat of last year’s $1,500 to win, would put the pressure on Carpenter. Battling one another to the checkered, it was “Fast” Freddie edging out, picking up his 2nd feature win at Hilltop Speedway followed by Corey Conley, Ty Myers, Rick Conley and Rick Bond.

The JPR Auto and Tire, Winning Edge, and A&B Roofing and Construction mini wedges had a field of 18 for their first week at the Hill. Picking up each of the heat races was Zoe Stafford and Karyssa Beagle with Jason Wright winning the last chance race. With the feature set, it was Stafford who would take the lead; however, Beagle was right on her bumper. The two would battle lap after lap, with Beagle taking the lead. However, after a restart, Stafford was able to surpass Beagle and reclaim the lead, picking up the first mini wedge feature of the season. Third went to Braxton Wilson, fourth to Donny Danley, and fifth went to Kyla Dillon.

The Finish Line Auto Body modifieds were next to roll onto the track with a field of 21. Setting fast time for the night was “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver with a 15.581. Picking up the heat races was Scott Peltz and Todd Swim while Wisecarver won the dash and Darrick Hubbard Jr. the last chance race.

Leading the field down the backstretch, it was Wisecarver setting the pace with “Rockin” Robin on the outside. As the green dropped, Wisecarver would take the top spot while Chris Basich claimed second and Duston and “The Stalker” Jon Sluka battled it out for third. A caution filled feature would account for a number of surprising outcomes. With Wisecarver out front, Sluka would work on Basich for second and Jimmy Smith worked his way from the tail through the field to fifth. However, as the battle for second ensued, “The Outlaw” uncharacteristically would spin coming off of four causing him to go pit side. In addition, troubles would also send Basich pit side placing Sluka in the top spot. With the green back out and Sluka out front, the battle for second between began between Scott Peltz and Jimmy Smith. As Smith advanced passed Peltz, he worked on closing in on Sluka, yet, he was unable to surpass “The Stalker” who would go on to pick up the win. Rounding out the top five was Robin Duston, Scott Peltz, and Todd Swim.

The Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks had a field of 17 with Mike Lonas setting fast time at 16.307. John Wilson and Denny Shear would pick up each of the two heat races with Mike Lonas claiming the dash. As Lonas set the pace to the start, he would jump out front and remain, regardless of the pursuit by Bob Daugherty. Thus, the seemingly undefeatable Mike Lonas would go on to pick up yet another feature win followed by Bob Daugherty, Dave Potts, Jon Preston, and Bob Chilcote.

The modlite division had a field of eight with Nick Crider picking up the heat race win placing him on the pole of the night’s feature event. Coming to the green, it was Crider out front and that is where he would remain going on and picking up the win. Finishing second was Kacy Campbell, third Joe Burkhead, fourth Bryan Stuhldreher and fifth to JB Burton.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks featured two heat races with wins going to Travis Winterringer and Joey Heyder. As Winterringer brought the field of 11 to the green, he and Rolly Heyder would battle for the lead where Heyder would advance. With Heyder out front, Winterringer and Joey Heyder would battle for second with Winterringer claiming the position. As the laps dwindled, Winterringer would challenge again for the lead. However, unable to capitalize, Rolly Heyder would go on to remain undefeated so far this season. Second went to Travis Winterringer while Joey Heyder, Jerry Gardner, and Tom Garlick rounded out the top five.

            Rounding out the night’s events was the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks with 25 cars. Heat race winners were Colton St. John, Mike Beckert, and Michael Rose with Trae Schonauer picking up the last chance race. With the field set, the green was out and a three way battle for the lead ensued between Colton St. John, Michael Rose, and Jerry Adkins. Lap after lap the three tried to edge out over one another. Trouble would send St. John pit side while the battle continued between Rose and Adkins. With the laps dwindling, Adkins worked his way around Rose to pick up the win. Rounding out the top five was Blaine Markey, Blake Heyder, and Trae Schonauer.

“The Outlaw” Picks up $1,000 to Win

            Fans filled the stands at Hilltop Speedway, for Saturday night’s $1,000 to win for the Finish Line Auto Body Modifieds.

            First out for the night was the Finish Line Auto Body modifieds. Setting fast time was Craig Wolford with a 15.964 placing him in the dash. Picking up heat race wins was “The Logger” Kevin Morehouse and Rex Frohnapfel Jr. with “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver taking the dash. In the last chance race it was Jimmy Smith with the win. With Wisecarver on point, he brought the field to the green. Jumping out front early, Wisecarver would be challenged by “The Stalker” Jon Sluka who was in a close second.

Opening Night has Arrived on the Hill

            After a long winter and endless nights in the garage, followed by a few weeks of uncooperative Mother Nature, opening night at Hilltop Speedway has finally arrived.

            Up first for the night were the Holmes Tire late models with newcomer to the division, Kyle Moore, picking up fast time with a 14.493 as well as the heat race win. As the green flag dropped for the first feature event of the 2015 season, it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley who would take the early lead. However, a bobble would enable Moore with the opportunity to take the lead. With Moore out front, the battle would ensue for second between Conley and Greg Oakes. Lap after lap, Moore maintained his lead over the rest of the field when with eight laps to go he would blow the right rear tire coming off of four. Choosing to change the tire and restart from the tail, Moore would work his way back through the field picking up his first win in the late model division. With this win, Moore marks the only driver to have a win in four different divisions at Hilltop Speedway. Rounding out the field was Corey Conley, Greg Oaks, Hiram Bachmann, and Mike Taylor.

            The next to rollout on the track were the Finish Line Auto Body modifieds. Setting fast time was “Rockin” Robin Duston with a 15.25; while Nathon Loney went on to pick up the heat race win. With Loney setting the pace to the green, he would jump out front. However, an early caution would force Loney pit side and call for a complete double file restart moving Duston up to the pole position. As the field went green, it was Duston who got the run over Jimmy Smith. The battle between Smith and Duston would continue, when a caution would put Smith on the tail. Underway once again, Smith would work his way back up through the field retaining that second place position but ultimately unable to surpass “Rockin” Robin who would pick up the first feature win of whats sure to be a great season. Second went to Jimmy Smith, third to Dan Davies, fourth to Jeremy Scot, and fifth to Virgil Eaches.

            Next to make their way onto the speedway were the Holmes Pest Control street stocks with a fast time of 17.068 set by Kevin Potts, placing himself in the dash, which he would also go on to win,while Mike Lonas picked up the win in the heat. Bringing the field to the green, it was Lonas who got the run and took the top spot. Meanwhile, Bob Daugherty was working his way through the field up to second looking to make a charge for the lead. As the two worked their way through lap traffic, Lonas was able to maintain his lead and pick up the win over Daugherty, followed by David Potts, Richard Grogg, and Steve Barnhart.

            With the largest car count of the divisions, the Winning Edge Auto Body mini stocks would see Greg Thompson, Michael Rose, and Jerry Adkins all picking up heat race win with the b-main win going to John Jones. Thompson and Rose slowly brought the field to the start with Rose taking the lead followed by Adkins. In what was a caution filled feature, it was Rose and Adkins who would battle it out back and forth for the lead. With one last chance to take over the lead, the green dropped once again, however, Adkins was unable to overcome Rose who would pick up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was Gary Hensel Jr., Tyler Parsons, and Blaine Markey.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a field of ten, running a single heat race of which Rolly Heyder picked up the win, placing him on the pole of the feature. With the field set, it was Heyder who would take the lead followed by Jerry Gardner. Lap after lap the two battled it out for the lead. Gardner challenging, trying to get the run on Heyder, as the white flag came out the two would be bumper to bumper going into one. Nevertheless, Rolly Heyder was able to hang on and pick up the victory, followed by Jerry Gardner, Tom Garlick, Chet Collmar, and Russell Brinker.

            Rounding out the night’s events were the modlites, who are a regular now at the speedway. Picking up the only heat win of the night was Cole Petrelle. With Petrelle and regular Tyler Frankenberry on the front row, the race was underway. Frankenberry would edge out over the rest of the field taking the lead. However, trouble for the 38 would bring out the caution placing Frankenberry on the tail. As the green dropped once again, Petrelle would take the top spot and go on to pick up the win followed by Dillon Rittenhouse, KC Campbell, Ryan Baker, and Josh Baldwin.

Packed House for Weekend on the Hill

September 16, 2014 / Jessica Mardis

            As the summer comes to an end, the cooler temperatures of fall did not stop the fans or cars from packing Hilltop Speedway for the 6th Annual Weekend on the Hill. With two complete shows on the agenda as well as the 1st Annual Mini Wedge Nationals fans were in for two nights of non-stop racing action.

            Rolling onto the track first were the Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks with a field of nineteen on Friday and twenty-two on Saturday. Picking up heat race wins on Friday was Bob Chilcote, Mike Lonas, and Bob Daugherty. While Dave Potts, Kevin Potts, and Bob Daugherty all got heat race wins on Saturday with the b-main going to Brian Simpson.

            With the features set, Bob Chilcote brought the field to the start on Friday night. Taking the lead early was Mike Lonas who would be challenged by Bob Daughtery multiple times. However, going for the pass, on the bottom, coming off of two, Daughtery would hit the tire, spinning and bringing out the caution. Mike Lonas would go on to pick up the win. As Saturday’s feature was brought to the green, it was the Potts’ on the front row. Looking for redemption from the night before, Daughtery would take the lead from Potts and go on to pick up the win.

            There was a full field of Holmes Tire Lates Models with twenty-nine on Friday and twenty-five on Saturday for the $2,000 to win make-up. Friday night’s fast qualifier was Devin Moran with a 14.329, while “Fast” Freddie Carpenter picked up fast time Saturday with a 15.822. Heat race winners on Friday were Freddie Carpenter, Bryan Casey, and “The General” George Lee with the dash win going to Devin Moran and Ross Micastri picking up the b-main. Saturday night heat race winners were George Lee, Doug Drown and Vic Hottinger while Freddie Carpenter picked up the dash win and JR Gentry won the b-main.

            Coming to the green on Friday night it was Devin Moran who would jump out front regaining his position in victory lane as he is accustom to at the Hill. However, as Saturday’s field approached the start, it was “Fast” Freddie Carpenter who would demonstrate pure dominance over the rest of the field as the make-up $2,000 to win went thirty-five laps green to checker with Carpenter lapping almost the entire field to pick up the win.

            The modified division had a field of twenty-one on Friday and a field of twenty-three on Saturday. Setting fast time Friday was “The Hitman” Jess Hartman with a 15.816, Saturday it was Jimmy Smith with a 16.523. Friday night heat race winners were Jimmy Smith, Craig Wolford, dash winner Robin Duston and b-main winner Norm Aronhalt. On Saturday, it was “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt, Doug Drown, “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver, with Robin Duston picking up the dash win and Robin Ours picking up the b-main win.

            Bringing the field down the backstretch, it was “Rockin” Robin Duston on the pole for both Friday and Sarturday’s feature events. On Friday, “The Hitman” Jess Hartman would jump out front and battle with “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver for the lead. Nevertheless, Hartman would maintain the lead and go on to pick up the win. During Saturday’s feature, it was Anthony Kinkade who would jump out front. However, challenging and battling on Kinkade’s bumper was Kevin Morehousen looking to take over the lead. With Morehouse unable to capitalize, it was Anthony Kinkade who picked up the feature win.  

            The modlites also made an appearance this weekend with a 5-car field on Friday and a 12-car field on Saturday. Tracy Fritter picked up the heat race win on Friday while also picking up one of the two heats on Saturday, Kevin Morehouse won the second. With the fields set, Friday’s feature win would go to Tracy Fritter. On Saturday, it was Kevin Morehouse who would claim the feature win, ending Fritter’s undefeated streak in appearances at Hilltop.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a 13-car field on Friday and a 12-car field on Saturday. Picking up heat race wins on Friday was Joey Heyder and Rolly Heyder who would also pick up a heat win on Saturday along with Cole Lillibridge. With the fields set and the green out, it was Rolly Heyder who would pick up back to back feature wins on Friday and Satruday nights, ending the season with a winning edge.

            The mini stock division had full field of cars with nineteen on Friday and twenty-one on Saturday. Friday night heat race winners were Blaine Markey, Jerry Adkins, and Brad Hensel, while Saturday night heat race winners were Blaine Markey, Kevin Markey and Jason St. John. Sitting on the pole and setting the pace to the green for both features was Blaine Markey. On Friday night it was Jerry Adkins who would jump out to the lead over Markey. However, on the last lap, Gary Hensel Jr. would pass Adkins and take the win. Saturday night proved to be more promising for Markey as he would take the lead as well as the win.

Running a single show on Friday night and making their second appearance for the year, the outlaw mini stocks had an 8-car field. Heat race one went to Jeremy Krouskoupf with heat two going to Kyle Moyer. With the green out for the night’s feature event, it was Kyle Moyer who would jump out front and go on to pick up the win.

On Saturday, Hilltop Speedway hosted the 1st annual Mini Wedge Nationals with a 20-car field. For the first time ever, the wedges qualified, with Zack Carr picking up fast time. After pulling for inversion, it was determined that the top twelve qualifiers would be inverted for the start of the heats. The winners of each of the three heat races were Zack Carr, Jacob Ice, and Braxton Wilson. Picking up the b-main win was Levi Bowen with the provisional going to Jamie Bright. After a rough start of the 20-lap feature, it was Zack Carr who would take the lead and never look back picking up the inaugural win.

August 31, 2014 / Jessica Mardis

            Bringing the field down the back stretch to the green, it was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley jumping out front over Cline. Undeterred, Cline would make multiple attempts at the top spot.

Points Season Comes to an End at the Hill

August 17, 2014 / Jessica Mardis

            As the 2014 points season comes to an end at Hilltop Speedway, there were 120 drivers entered in the pits to make one final attempt at the championship.

            Starting the night off were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with an eleven car field. Heat race winners were Travis Hare and Cole Lillibridge. With the feature set, “Wild Hare” Travis Hare would bring the field down the back stretch to the green. However, an early caution would force Hare to restart tail, allowing Travis Winterringer to take the lead as the green came back out. Out front, Winterringer was challenged by John Large who was able to get a run and take the lead. Able to fend off challengers, Large would go on to pick up the feature win followed by Tom Garlick, Jerry Gardner, Travis Winterringer, and Cole Lillibridge. The 2014 Hilltop Speedway Champion in the truck division, Jerry Gardner.

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction Mini Wedges had a total of eighteen, ten on the small track and eight on the big track. On the small track, heat race winners were Braxton Wilson and Donnie Danley. With the features set, the small track wedges ran first. On the start, it was Braxton Wilson who would take the lead, remaining out front to pick up the win. Small track 2014 Champion, Nick Large. On the big track, it was “The Throttle Monster” Destinie Bates dominating the rest of the field picking up the win and the 2014 Championship.

            There were six novice mini stocks with Samantha St. John and Colten Priebe setting on the front row of their eight lap event. Out front early was St. John, who would lead every lap to the checkered, picking up the win as well as the 2014 Hilltop Speedway Championship. Rounding out the top five, was Colten Priebe, Dustin Camp, Colten St. John, and John Maki.

            The Holmes Tire Late Models had a field of 21 with “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley setting fast time with a 14.481. Picking up each of the heat race wins were Ty Myers and Mike Basich, while Mike Lonas picked up the win in the dash.

            Bringing the field the start of their 25-lap feature event was Lonas and Conley. Taking the early lead was Conley who would continue lap after lap as a battle for third went on between Mike Basich and Mike Lonas. However, bad luck would strike Dave Hornikel as he was running second bringing out the caution and forcing him to the pits. With the green back out, it again was Conley taking the top spot as “The General” George Lee worked his way past Bond and Lonas to take third. Nevertheless, going on to pick up this fifth career feature, second this year was “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley followed by Mike Basich, George Lee, Mike Lonas, and Rick Bond. Picking up the 2014 Hilltop Speedway Late Model Championship was Rick Mardis.

            Next onto the track was the Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks with a field of 22. Heat race winners were Mike Lonas, Kyle Moore, and Dave Potts. With Lonas and Moore setting on the front row, the green would drop for the start of their fifteen lap feature event. However, caution would come out as Kevin Potts slowed on the backstretch, eventually pulling off to change a tire and restart the field tail. With the green out once again, Moore would take the lead and that is where he would remain, picking up the win as well as the 2014 Hilltop Speedway Championship. Second went to Matt Shroyer, third to Dave Potts, fourth to Todd Swim, and fifth to Bob Chilcote.

            The modified division had twenty-two drivers entered with “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver setting fast time with a 15.933. Picking up heat race wins were George Lee, Nathon Loney, Bob Page, while dash winner was Kyle Brown and the last chance race winner was Kyle Dickenson.

            Setting the pace to the green was Brown with “Stormin’” Norman Aronhalt outside pole. Taking over top spot was Aronhalt with a charging Wisecarver sitting second. Working on the leader, Wisecarver would put the pressure on Aronhalt who would bring out the caution in turn one and two, thus having to restart tail. With Wisecarver taking the lead, battle would ensue between Kevin Morehouse and George Lee for second. Pulling away from the field “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver would pick up the win followed by Kevin Morehouse, George Lee, Robin Duston and Cory Conley. The modified 2014 Hilltop Speedway Championship went to Robin Duston.

            Rounding out the night was the mini stock division with a field of twenty. Heat race winners were Jason St. John, James Priebe, and Kevin Markey. As St. John brought the field to the green, he would jump out to the lead and remain, going on to pick up not only the feature win but also the 2014 Hilltop Speedway Mini Stock Championship. Rounding out the top five was Michael Rose, Blaine Markey, Billy Parsons, and James Priebe.

Markham Adds Win to Exceptional Year; Hartman Picks up First Feature at Hilltop This Season

June 22, 2014/Jessica Mardis

            Even days of rain could not hinder the racing action at Hilltop Speedway as they had their greatest car count thus far with 124 cars entered in the pits and fans filling the stands for an eventful night at the speedway.

            The Holmes Tire Late Models had a field of 21 with a few newcomers to the track. Setting fast time with a 14.687 was “The Kamikaze Kid” Tyler Carpenter. Picking up each of the heat race wins was Matt Irey and Mike Lonas with the dash win going to “The General” George Lee. In the last chance race, it was Vic Hottinger picking up the win to transfer to the night’s feature.

            Bringing the field to the green, it was “The General” setting the pace with Ryan Markham on the outside. As the two battled back and forth for the top spot, Markham was able to edge his way out front. Going green to checkered and increasing his lead as he worked through lap traffic, it was “Flyin’” Ryan Markham picking up his second win of the season at Hilltop Speedway and adding to his exceptional season thus far. Rounding out the top five was George Lee, Tyler Carpenter, Rick Bond, and Charlie Duncan.

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction Mini Wedges had a field of 22. Given all the rain over the last week, the small track regulars were unable to run the small track therefore, they too ran the large track. The small track heat race win went to Livia Large. The large track regulars had two heats with wins going to Justin Jessop and Destinie Bates.

With the fields set, the small track regulars were up first, with the green out it was Billy Dawson out front after an early race caution. However, working her way through the field, Andrea Hensel was charging on Dawson. Coming down the front stretch, side by side for the checkered, it was Hensel would get the win followed by Billy Dawson, Zoe Stafford, Nick Large, and Pierce Norman.

On to the track next were the large track regulars with Justin Jessop leading the field to the green, with Bates on the outside. However, after contact with another wedge caution was out, Bates being charged with the caution was forced to restart tail. With the green back out, “The Throttle Monster” Bates worked her way back through the field to go on to win. Finishing second was Nathon Fritter, third to Phillip Bubeck, fourth to Chase Settles, and fifth was Karyssa Beagle.

The Novice Mini Stocks had a 7-car field. With Samantha St. John out front early, John Maki would make his move coming off of four to take the lead as well as the win. Second went to Blake Morris, third to Colten Priebe, fourth to Dustin Camp, and rounding out the top five was Tyler Beckett.

With a field of 19, the Barnes Performance Unlimited Modifieds hit the track, with “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver setting fast time with a 15.701. Heat race winners were Denny Benjamin and Hilton Eppley, while “The Hitman” Jess Hartman picked up the dash win.

Leading the field down the backstretch, Hartman and Bruce Miller set the front row. As the green dropped, it was Hartman to the lead. Working the top, to take over second and third was Wisecarver and “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt. Coming up to Hartman, Wisecarver would make multiple challenges however, was unable to capitalize. Thus, picking up his first feature win at Hilltop this year it was “The Hitman” Jess Hartman followed by Jesse Wisecarver, Norm Aronhalt, Bruce Miller, and Robin Duston.

The Bugs-R-Gone Trucks had a field of 10 with heat race wins going to Kevin Potts and Rolly Heyder, setting the front row for the night’s feature event. Coming off of four, the green dropped and it was Rolly Heyder taking the early lead. However, after hard charges, Potts took the lead and went on to pick up the win. Second went to Rolly Heyder, third to Cole Lillibridge, forth to Travis Winterringer, and fifth to Josey Lillibridge.

Making another trip back to the Hill, the modlites had a field of 10 with Tyler Frankenberry and Brian Stuhldreher picking up each of the heat race wins. Coming to the green, it was Frankenberry out front early and that is where he would remain going on to pick up the win followed by Tim Hawkins, Brian Stuhldreher, Wayne Kintz, and Brandon Shaw.

The Holmes Pest Control had a field of 19. Picking up heat race wins were Bob Daugherty, Brad Moore, and Todd Swim. After a caution filled start, the green was out and it was Brad Moore out in front. Challenging lap after lap for the lead, Daugherty would make his move on the last lap with the help of lap traffic to take the lead and the win. Finishing third was Todd Swim, fourth was Brandon Gardner, and fifth was Gary Hensel.

Rounding out the night with a field of 16 was the Barnes Performance Unlimited Mini Stocks. Heat race wins went to Michael Rose and Jason St. John. With the green out, Rose would jump out front for the lead. After eight laps in, caution came out, bunching the field back up for the restart. As the green came back out, it was Jason St. John who would challenge Rose for the lead. Coming out of four, side by side, for the checkered it was Michael Rose who was able to edge his way over St. John. Rounding out the top five was Gary Hensel Jr., Chris Priebe, and Moose Workman.

Daugherty Picks Up Win in $1,000 Street Stock Invitational; Kinkade First Feature Win at Hilltop Speedway

June 15, 2014/Jessica Mardis

            With the sun shining, fans filling the stands, and 105 cars in the pits, racing action was sure to excite at the Hill for the street stock invitational.

The Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks had a field of twenty-one for the night’s $1,000 to win invitational. Setting fast time in the 2* was Kyle Moore with a time of 16.854. Picking up each of the two heat wins was Bob Daugherty and Mike Lonas, while the dash win went to Kyle Moore placing him on the pole for the night’s feature event.

            Bringing the field to the start of the 25-lap feature was Moore with Matt Shroyer on the outside. Jumping out front was Moore, as troubles sent Shroyer pit side, moving Bob Daughtery up to second. As the green dropped once again, Daughtery would make a hard charge at Moore however, was unable to make it stick. With Moore out front, he would blow a left rear tire forcing him pit side to change it and restart tail, placing Daughtery on point for the restart. While Daughtery fended his position, Moore was working his way back through the field up to second. After a final caution that would bunch the field back up, it was Bob Daughtery who would go on to pick up the $1,000 to win followed by Kyle Moore, Dave Potts, John Wilson, and Bob Chilcote.

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction Mini Wedges had a total of seventeen wedges, 7 on the small track and 10 on the large track. Picking up the heat race win on the small track was Braxton Wilson, with Chase Settles and Destinie Bates picking up heat race wins on the large track.

            After a few rough starts on the small track, the green was out and it was Braxton Wilson out front. Able to defend his position through both restarts and challenges from Zoe Stafford, Braxton Wilson would go on to win his first feature at Hilltop this year. Rounding out the top five was Zoe Stafford, Nick Large, Kyla Dillon, Blake Morris.

            On the large track, it was Chase Settles starting on the pole with Karyssa Beagle moving up to the outside after issues forced Destinie Bates to scratch. As the green dropped it was Settles to a commanding lead over the rest of the field as he would go on to pick up the win. Rounding out the field was Savanna Uhl, Justin Jessop, Landon Anderson, Logan Duncan.

With a six-car field the Novice Mini Stocks rolled onto the track, with Bryon King and Samantha St. John on the front row. Working his way to the front from the tail was Colten Priebe, who would go on to pick up the win followed by Samantha St. John, Blake Morris, Byron King, and Dustin Camp.

            There was a 15-car field for the Barnes Performance Unlimited Mini Stocks with Michael Rose and Blaine Markey picking up wins in the heats, setting the front row for the feature. With Rose leading the field down the backstretch to the green, he would ultimately take the lead and the win with a caution free, green to checkered finish. Second went to Blaine Markey, third to Kevin Markey, fourth to Jason St. John, and fifth to James Priebe.

            Running third in the night’s order was the Holmes Tire Late Models with a 14-car field. Setting fast time for the night was Devin Moran with a 15.463, placing him in the dash, which he would go on to win. Picking up the heat race win was Dave Hornikel.

            Setting the pace to the green, it was Moran and Matt Irey on the front row. As the green dropped, Moran would jump out to a commanding lead, working his way through lap traffic to pick up his fourth win in four appearances at Hilltop Speedway. Finishing second was Dave Hornikel, third was Rick Mardis, fourth George Lee, and fifth to Ty Myers.

            Rolling onto the track next was the Barnes Performance Unlimited Modifeds with a 20-car field. Fast qualifier for the night was Chris Basich with a time of 16.474. Heat race one win went to Hilton Eppley with heat two going to Denny Benjamin. Picking up the dash win was Anthony Kinkade.

            With Kinkade bringing the field to the green, he would take the lead followed by Rory Reed. Caution would come out as Robin Duston would go to the pits to change a flat, placing him on tail for restart.     Back under green, Kinkade was still leading the field, as a three way battle between Reed, Chris Basich, and “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt ensued for second. Caution would fly as Basich took over second followed by Aronhalt and Reed. However, tire troubles would also send Aronhalt pitside for a change, restarting tail. Under green once again, it was Kinkade out front going on to pick up his first ever feature at Hilltop Speedway. Chris Basich picked up second, with third and fourth, after working their way back from the tail, was Robin Duston and Norm Aronhalt and fifth was Rory Reed.

            The Bugs-R-Gone Trucks rounded out the night with a 12-car field. Picking up the heat race wins was Roley Heyder and Cole Lillibridge setting the front row of the night’s feature.

“Stormin” Norman Aronhalt Picks Up First Win of the Season; Bounty Continues on Moore

June 1, 2014/ By Jessica Mardis

            One could not ask for a better day, as the sun was shining on the Hill, as both fans filled the stands and 120 cars filled the pits.

            Debuting this week in the mini wedge division, Hilltop Speedway introduced the small track, giving the option to run either the small or the big tracks. The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction Mini Wedges had a field of 19 with 10 running the large track and nine on the small.

            Winning the heats on the large track was “The Throttle Monster” Destinie Bates and Chase Settles. Coming to the green, Bates got out front and remained as she would go on to pick up back-to-back feature wins. Second went to Karyssa Beagle, third to Landon Anderson, fourth to Taylor Huggins, and fifth to Savanna Uhl.

            Picking up the heat race wins on the small track was Braxton Wilson and Corbin Adkins. With Wilson bringing the field to the start, Adkins would take over the lead early. Battling their way through lap traffic, Zoey Stafford would pass Adkins for the lead coming out of two. With some troubles, Adkins would lose positions, allowing Wilson to battle back up to the leader. However, Stafford was able to hold on to the lead and pick up her first feature win. Rounding out the top five was Kyla Dillon, Nick Large, and Corbin Adkins.

            The Novice Mini Stocks had a 7-car field with Blake Morris and Samantha St. John on the pole for the night’s feature. Coming up from third to pick up the win, it was John Maki, followed by Samantha St. John, Dustin Camp, Colten Priebe, Blake Morris, Colten St. John, and Katie Thomas.

            With the bounty on Brad Moore still in place and increasing to $200 for the night, 14 other Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks looked to dethrone Moore and take home the win. Picking up each of the two-heat race wins were Bob Chilcote and Brad Moore.

            With the lineup set for the feature, Chilcote brought the field to the green. Jumping out to the lead was Brad Moore followed by Kyle Moore. After multiple hard charges from Kyle, as the two worked their way through lap traffic, Brad was able to maintain his top spot, continuing his reign. Third went to Dave Potts, fourth to Bob Chilcote, and fifth to Todd Swim.

            The Holmes Tire Late Models were next to roll out onto the track with a 20-car field. Setting fast time for the night was “General” George Lee with a 14.773. Heat race winners were Dave Hornikel and Mike Lonas with the dash win going to Jimmy Smith.

            As Smith led the field down the backstretch to the green, it was Lee from outside pole taking over top spot, where he would remain, picking up the win. Rounding out the top five was Todd Brennen, Jimmy Smith, Ty Myers, and Vic Hottinger.

            The modlites had a field of 11 with Nick Crider and Tim Hawkins picking up the heat race wins and setting the front row for the night’s feature event. Bringing the field to the green, it was Nick Crider on point. As the green dropped, Crider would take the lead and never look back, picking up his second career win this season. Second place went to Brian Stuhldreher, third to Tim Hawkins, fourth to Joe Burkhead, and fifth to Andy Hart.

            The Bugs-R-Gone trucks had a field of 14 for the night, with Cole Lillibridge wining heat race one and Travis Winterringer picking up the win in heat two. Lillibridge led the field to the green, jumping out front early. However, Roly Heyder was making his way through the field and found himself battling Lillibridge for the top spot. Coming out of two Heyder was able to make his move and pass Lillibridge and go on to take the win. Kevin Potts picked up third, Jerry Gardner picked up fourth, and Joey Heyder picked up fifth.

            With a field of 17, the Barnes Performance Unlimited Modifieds were the next division to roll onto the track. Setting fast time was Aaron Scott with a 15.930. Heat race winners were Denny Benjamin and Hilton Eppley, while “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt went on to pick up the dash win, placing him on the pole for the night’s feature.

            When the green dropped with the field coming off four, it was “Stormin” Norman out front. After a few hard charges from last week’s feature winner Chris Basich, Aronhalt was able to maintain his top spot and go on to pick up his first feature win of the year, and twenty-seventh career win. Rounding out the top five was Chris Basich, Nathon Loney, Robin Duston, and Rory Reed.

            Finishing out the night was the Barnes Performance Unlimited Mini Stocks with a 17-car field. Fast qualifier for the night was Gary Hensel Jr. with a time of 19.276. Heat race one winner was Jason St. John, with Michael Rose picking up heat race two. On point and leading the field to the start was St. John, who would also jump out to the lead and go on to pick up the win, his third for this season. Second place went to Gary Hensel Jr., Billy Parsons picked up third, fourth to Blaine Markey, and fifth to Dustin Daugherty.

Heyder Picks up Bugs-R-Gone Truck Special; Bates Breaks Record

 

May 25, 2014 / Jessica Mardis

 

            With their largest car count thus far this season with 122, Saturday night was filled with non-stop racing, as eight different divisions were in action on the Hill. The night’s agenda included autograph night for the fans allowing them to meet their favorite drivers as well as the Bugs-R-Gone truck special.

            Rolling out first for the night were the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with a field of 16. Heat race one win went to Cole Lillibridge, heat two Kevin Potts and heat three winner was John Large. Bringing the field to the green for their $500 to win special was Cole Lillibridge who would also jump out front early. However, as a three-way battle ensued for top spot with Lillibridge, Kevin Potts and Roley Heyder the caution would fly with Lillibridge going in for a tire change and putting Heyder in the top spot. After a caution by John Large in turn one and two, Potts also went in to change a tire, placing both drivers to the tail for the restart and moving Jerry Gardner to the second spot. As the green dropped for the final restart, it was Roley Heyder picking up the $500 Bugs-R-Gone special followed by Jerry Gardner, Tom Garlic, Dwayne Powell, and Travis Winterringer.

            The JPR Auto & Tire, Winning Edge and A & B Roofing and Construction Mini Wedges had a field of 14 with Destinie Bates and Landon Anderson picking up each of the heat races and setting the pole for the feature event. Taking the lead was Anderson as Bates and Taylor Huggins battled it out for second. With Bates pulling away from Huggins and gaining on Anderson, the “Throttle Monster” Destinie Bates would go on to pick up her fourth feature win this season and break the previous record for all time feature wins in the mini wedge division held by Blake Morris.

            With a 6-car field it was Samantha St. John leading the field to the start of the Novice Mini Stock feature event. Jumping to the lead as well as picking up the win from outside pole was Colten Priebe followed by Colten St. John, John Maki, Samantha St. John, and Dustin Camp.

            There were 23 Holmes Tire Late Models in action on the Hill with fast qualifier going to “The General” George Lee with a time of 14.592. Heat race winners were Mike Basich and Mike Lonas with the dash win going to Rick Mardis. In the last chance conciliation race it was Johnny Vandale pickin up the win.

            Coming to the green it was Rick Mardis setting pace with “Chargin” Charlie Duncan sitting outside pole.  Out to the lead was Duncan as “The General” George Lee was making his way through the field to second. The battle for top spot continued as the two navigated their way through lap traffic. With Lee taking over top spot, the battle for second between Duncan and Mike Basich began. Passing Duncan on the last lap and picking up second was Basich, while fourth went to Mike Lonas, and fifth to Todd Brennen.

            The action continued as the Barnes Performance Unlimited Modifieds rolled onto the track with a 16-car field. Picking up fast qualifier was Chris Basich with a time of 15.888. Hilton Eppley picked up the win in heat one with heat two going to Randy Harris and the dash going to Chris Basich.

            After a few failed attempts to go green and with top runner Norm Aronhalt, as well, Rory Reed heading to the pits before the first lap was in the books, Chris Basich was able to lead the field to the start. Jumping out front early was Basich with “Rockin” Robin Duston in pursuit for the top spot. As the battle continued, coming up on lap traffic, the caution came out bunching the field back up and allowing Scott Peltz to make a charge at second. Holding on to the lead and picking up his third straight win was Basich, followed by Robin Duston, Scott Peltz, Denny Benjamin, and Hilton Eppley.

            The Barnes Performance Unlimited Mini Stocks had a field of 17 with Michael Rose and Jason St. John picking up each of the heat race wins and setting the front row for the night’s feature event. Leading the field down the back stretch to the green was Rose, setting pace, he would go on to take the lead as well as the win. Jason St. John picked up second, while third went to Kevin Markey, fourth to Gary Hensel Jr. and fifth to Jordan James.

            Making a third trip back to Hilltop Speedway this season was the modlites with a 10-car field. Heat race one went to Nick Crider and heat two went to Branden Shaw. With Crider setting the pace and leading the field to the green, he jumped out to the lead and that was were here would remain going on to pick up the win. Crider was followed by Doug Stanley, Joe Sisk, Wayne Kintz, and Josh Crider.

             Given the dominance of Brad Moore in recent weeks in the Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks, a $100 bounty was placed on him for anyone that could take that feature win, of which 19 other cars had the opportunity. Picking up the heat race wins were Matt Shroyer, Brad Moore, and Dave Potts, placing Shroyer and Moore front row. As the green dropped, it was Brad Moore out front. However, Shroyer was not letting up challenging and trying to find a way to the front. Making his way through the field and putting pressure for second on Shroyer was Kyle Moore who eventually took over second. With a caution out and bunching the field back up, Kyle was looking for a way around his brother but as the checkered dropped it was Brad Moore demonstrating again his ability to get around the track and pick up the win. Rounding out the top five was Matt Shroyer, John Wilson, and Dave Potts.

Conley Picks up $1,500 to Win Holmes Tire Late Model Feature

 

May 11, 2014 / Jessica Mardis

                    With 102 cars in the pits and fans filling the stands, the night’s events, including the Holmes Tire late model $1,500 to win special, was sure to please a fan of any age.

                    With a 19-car field, it was “Fast” Freddie Carpenter setting fast time for the night with a 14.825 in the Holmes Tire Late Model division. Heat race winners were Mike Lonas and Mike Basich, with the dash win going to “The General” George Lee.

                    Setting the pace for the $1,500 to win feature event was Lee, with Corey Conley on the outside. Jumping out front early was Conley, with Lee and Carpenter battling for second as they made their way through lap traffic. With twelve laps in the red flag was brought out as Darrel Mayer, driving the 36, hit the wall in turn one and two spilling fuel down the track. During the caution, both Lee and Mike Lonas took their cars pit side placing Carpenter and “Chargin” Charlie Duncan second and third on the restart. Again it was Conley out to a commanding lead over the rest of the field when the yellow would fly with just one lap to go bunching the entire field back up for one last restart. After a shaky restart, “The Flying Ace” Corey Conley was able to hold on to the top spot and pick up his fourth career win at Hilltop Speedway followed by Freddie Carpenter, Charlie Duncan, Steve Prince, and Jimmy Smith.

                    The JPR Auto and Tire, Winning Edge, and A&B Roofing and Construction mini wedges had a field of 16, taking the top four of each heat to the A feature and the remaining to the B feature. Picking up the wins in each of the two heats was Phillip Bubeck and Caiden Black.

                    With each of the feature line ups set, feature A headed out onto the track. Out front early was Bubeck who was able to defend the top spot from the charging Black, picking up his first feature win. Rounding out the top five was Destinie Bates, Karyssa Beagle, and Brayden Renfrew. As feature B was lead to the green, it was Chase Settles and Dalton Anderson battling for the lead as Anderson took over top spot heading down the backstretch. Out to a commanding lead, problems slowed Anderson on the backstretch, coasting, trying to take the checkered; he was passed as by Corbin Adkins who went on to pick up his first feature win. Second went to Dalton Anderson, followed by Jesse Jessop, Andrea Hensel, and Logan Duncan.

                    Coming to the green, the 5-car field of Novice mini stocks was led by John Maki with Dustin Camp sitting outside pole. Taking the lead as well as picking up win was Maki. Rounding out the top five was Dustin Camp, Samantha St. John, Colten Priebe, and Hannah Rose.

                    The Barnes Performance Unlimited Modifieds were next to roll onto the track with a 14-car field. Setting fast time for the night was Rick Aukland with a 16.400. Heat race one win went to Aaron Scott and “Rockin” Robin Duston picked up the win in the dash.

                    Leading the field down the backstretch it was Duston setting the pace with last week’s feature winner Chris Basich on the outside. Taking the lead was Basich as he held off advancements from Nathon Loney and Anthony Kinkade. As the checkered dropped, it was Chris Basich picking up back to back feature wins. Basich was followed by Nathon Loney, Anthony Kinkade picked up third, Robin Duston fourth, and fifth went to Norm Aronhalt.

                    Sixteen cars made up the night’s Barnes Performance Unlimited Mini Stock division with Michael Rose and Jason St. John both picking up heat race wins, setting the front row for the feature event. As the green came out, it was Rose out front to take the lead and the win followed by Jason St. John, KC Butler, Jordan James, and fifth going to Blaine Markey.

                    The Holmes Pest Control Street Stock division featured three heat races with wins going to Kyle Moore, Brad Moore, and Bob Daugherty. With the seemingly unbeatable Moore brothers leading the 17-car field to the start, it was Brad who advanced to the lead over Kyle. Building his lead over the rest of the field as he worked his way through lap traffic and picking up back to back wins, third feature win of the season, was Brad Moore. Rounding out the top five was Kyle Moore, Matt Shroyer, Dave Potts, and AJ Cannon.

                    Fnishing out the divisions for the night was the Bugs-R-Gone trucks with a field of 15. Picking up the night’s heat race wins was Roley Heyder and Cole Lillibridge. With Heyder on point as the green dropped, he jumped out front.  The yellow flag would come out as Lillibridge and John Large were battling for second position, forcing Lillbridge to restart from tail. With the restart, it again was Heyder out front followed by Large  who pulled away from the field when another caution would come out from which Large would go pit side placing the hard charging Lillibridge back up in the second position. As the green dropped one last time it was Roley Heyder picking up the win, second went to Cole Lillibridge, third to Kevin Potts, fourth to Travis Winterringer and fifth to Tom Garlic.

Basich Picks up First Feature at Hilltop Speedway; Settles, St. John, Aukland, Hensel, Moore, and Potts Also Picking Up Wins

May 3, 2014/ Jessica Mardis

            After days of non-stop rain, Mother Nature changed her ways as the sun was shining on the Hill for the 97 cars that entered the pits for a spectacular night of races at Hilltop Speedway.

            The Barnes Performance Unlimited Modifieds were the first to roll onto the track with a 14-car field. Setting fast time for the night was Chris Basich with a time of 16.080 placing him in the dash, which he went on to win. Picking up the heat race win was Nathon Loney.

            Coming to the green it was Basich setting pace with Robin Duston on the outside. Out front early was Basich, while a battle for second was underway with Duston and “Stormin” Norman Aronhalt who had worked his way up from eighth. However, during a caution, Aronhalt went pit side leaving third open for Josh Morrow who had also worked his way through the field from ninth. On the final restart Duston made a hard charge at the leader but Basich was able to maintain position and pick up his first ever feature win at Hilltop Speedway. Rounding out the top five were Josh Morrow, Nathon Loney, and Rory Reed.

            The JPR Auto and Tire, Winning Edge Auto Body and A&B Roofing and Construction had a field of 16 with Brayden Renfrew and Chase Settles picking up heat race wins. From outside pole, Settles was out front early in the night’s feature event. Able to fend of multiple challenges from Destinie Bates, Settles was able to go on to dethrone Bates and pick up his first ever feature win. Third went to Karyssa Beagle, fourth to Taylor Huggins and fifth went to a track visitor.

            The Novice Mini Stocks were lead to the start by Colten St. John who jumped out front early and that was where he remained picking up yet another feature win. Rounding out the field was Dustin Camp, Colten Priebe, Samantha St. John, and John Maki.

            With a field of 19, the Holmes Tire Late Models rolled onto the track. With a time that was nearly eight tenths of a second faster than the rest of the field it was “Chargin” Charlie Duncan setting fast time with a 14.067. Picking up heat wins were Dan Snyder and Mike Basich with the dash win going to Rick Aukland.

            It was Aukland on point leading the field down the backstretch with George Lee outside. As the green dropped, going into turn one and two, Lee spun, bringing out the caution and placing Charlie Duncan outside pole for the complete restart. Battling through lap traffic, coming out of two Duncan was going for the pass as the caution came out. With the restart, Aukland jumped out front with Duncan and Rick Mardis battling for second. As the battle continued, Lee was able to use that advantage and work his way back from the tail to second. Picking up third was Rick Mardis, fourth was Charlie Duncan and fifth went to Steve Prince.

            The Barnes Performance Unlimited Mini Stocks had a field of 16 with heat race wins going to Gary Hensel Jr. and Jordan James, setting the front row of the night’s feature event. Leading the field to the green, Hensel jumped out front and remained picking up the win followed by Jordan James, Jason St. John, Michael Rose, and Keven Markey.

            It was Brad and Kyle Moore proving their dominance once again in the Holmes Pest Control Street Stock division each picking up the win in the heats. With Kyle Moore leading the field of 15 to the drop of the green, it was Brad Moore who was able to wheel his way past and take the lead along with the win. Rounding out the top five was Kyle Moore, John Wilson, Dave Potts, and Denny Shear.

            Rounding out the night was the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks with a field of 13. Heat race winners were Jerry Gardner and Kevin Potts setting the front row of the night’s feature event. Jumping out to an early lead was Gardner, however, after spinning coming off of four was forced to bring out the caution putting Potts on point for the restart. As the green flew, Potts maintained the lead and picked up the win. Cole Lillibridge picked up second from the tail, third Jack Large, fourth Travis Winterringer, and fifth went to Dwain Powell.

Hilltop Speedway Welcomes Back Mod Lites and Local Driver Continues Streak

Saturday, April 26, 2014

(Millersburg, Ohio) The cooler temperatures did not deter cars or fans from attending Hilltop Speedway Saturday night. With 89 cars in attendance, the fans were ready for an action packed night of races.

            First, to see the track for the night were the JPR Auto and Winning Edge Mini Wedges with a field of 15. Picking up the wins in each of the two heat races were Kyla Dillon and Karyssa Beagle, setting the front row for the night’s feature event. Bringing the youngsters to the start, it was the #11K of Kyla Dillon out front early followed by the #500 of Destinie Bates. The two ran side-by-side most of the race but as the checkered dropped it was the “Throttle Monster” Destinie Bates picking up the win, making it her third straight at Hilltop Speedway this season. Following Bates was Kyla Dillon, Chase Settles, Nick Large, and Taylor Huggins rounding out the top five

            Next to see action were the Novice Mini Stocks. Sitting on pole position, it was John Maki leading the field to the start. However, short-lived when coming from the third place position it was #84 Colton St. John jumping out front to take the lead as well as the win. Rounding out the field was Dustin Camp, Samantha St. John, and John Maki.

            With a field of 15, the next division up was the Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks. It was brothers, Kyle and Brad Moore, picking up each of the two-heat race wins, thus putting them side-by-side on the front row of the feature line-up. With #12 of Kyle Moore on point, leading the field down the backstretch to the green, he jumped out front to an early lead and that was where he remained. He went on to take the checkered followed by Brad Moore, who came from the tail to finish 2nd in addition to Dave Potts, John Wilson picked up third, fourth went to Denny Shear and Justin Patterson fifth.

            Rolling onto the track next with a field of 19 was the Holmes Tire Late Models. Setting fast time for the night was #14JR, JR Gentry with a 14.639. Heat race winners were Jimmy Smith and Craig Wolford with Devin Moran picking up the dash win, placing him on the pole for the night’s feature event. Bringing the field of late models to the green was #99M Devin Moran with #C4 “Fast” Freddie Carpenter sitting outside. However, caution was brought out coming out of two, sending Carpenter pit side for the night and placing #21 George “The General” Lee outside of Moran for a complete restart. After battling side-by-side for over half of the race, Moran was able to edge his way out front over Lee, picking up back-to-back wins and his third feature at Hilltop Speedway. Rounding out the top five was George Lee, Craig Wolford, Steve Prince, and Rick Mardis.

            Modifieds were next up with a 13-car field. #101 “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver set fast time for the night with a 16.008, with Rory Reed picking up the heat race win and the dash going to “The Stalker” Jon Sluka. Rolling onto the track it was #21J Sluka setting the pace to the green with #144 Anthony Kinkade outside pole. As the green dropped, it was Jon Sluka taking the lead fending off challengers Kinkade and Wisecarver. Coming to the checkered, it was Sluka on the low groove and Wisecarver on the high side, battling back and forth. However, it was “The Outlaw” Jesse Wisecarver who wheeled his way past Sluka coming out of four to take the win. Jon Sluka picked up second, while Robin Duston finished third, Rory Reed fourth and Pauly Hess fifth.

            Making their second trip back to Hilltop Speedway this season was the 8-car field of Mod Lites. Picking up the heat race wins were Nick Crider and Brian Stuhldrecher. Coming to the green it was #3x Nick Crider leading the field. However, after some bad luck he had to take his car pit side. After the restart it was #17 Brian Stuhldrecher taking the lead and picking up the feature win. Rounding out the top five was Ron Hixenbaum, Tim Hawkins, Doug Stanley, and Wayne Kintz.

            The last division for the night was the Mini Stocks with a 15-car field. Heat races wins went to Michael Rose and Jason St. John. Bringing the field to the start of their 12-lap feature event it was #23 Michael Rose setting the pace. Taking the lead and picking up the feature win was Michael Rose followed by Gary Hensel Jr., Jason St. John, Blaine Markey, and Jordan James.

Hilltop Speedway Stands True to Form

 

The highly anticipated first race of the 2014 season was everything that any spectator, racing team, driver, and staff could ask for! The competition was as fierce and evenly matched as anyone can remember; and this is merely a prelude to a season that everyone is asking for. It was obvious that NO ONE is anticipating being in the “first place loser” bracket and this title is always for someone else! Everyone has stepped up their game exponentially and the end results are only contingent on driver resolve and simple “racing luck.” Ask any driver in every class if they would rather be lucky or good… odds are you’ll hear “both!”… which is exactly how the feature winner becomes the feature winner! Next week will certainly bring more encouraged attitudes and rejuvenated hope of claiming that elusive Checkered Flag at the end of the night.

The Modified class provided the racing expectations set for the rest of the evening and their feature was a “hold-your-breath and pucker-up” race till the checkered was waved. It was the #1 of Kenny Johnson from Parkersburg West Virginia after tagging the wall on the white flag lap that earned the first payday at Hilltop and he did it with the fans on their feet! Great show Kenny! The 000 piloted by Garnes followed Johnson for 2nd and the 101of Jesse Wisecarver finished out the top three.

Next up was the HOLMES TIRE LATE MODELS and what an awesome show they put on for the crowd! Track Champ in the front row and side by side champs in the third row! Wow, 3 of 6 drivers are champions and start up front! Could this be a sign of what’s to come at Hilltop? Absolutely!! 

Every racer knows that heat races and qualifying doesn’t pay money, the last lap in the feature does! So let’s go there…

HOLMES TIRE LATE MODELS FEATURE: 

Taking the green flag was none other than the 240 of Charlie Duncan with the 42 of Chris Garnes on the outside anticipating Duncan’s launch. It is in the next row that #25 Bryan Casey and #99M of Devin Moran have “missile tone” on their intended targets and are ready to hit the launch trigger gingerly under their foot! And that they did, 240 Charlie Duncan right out of the gate is pushed to the limits by the Garnes and Moran and the “luck” everyone needs is not to be found in the 240 stable, a flat tire will rewrite this team’s chances tonight… but failure is never an option for anyone here behind the wheel.  After changing a tire staying on the lead lap is no easy task, especially when the entire field has a “No Quarter” frame of mind…the goal is to swallow up as many wounded prey as they can!

When the smoke cleared this is the result: 1st place goes to #99m Devin Moran, 2nd place earned by # 42 Chris Garnes, 3rd is the #14JR JR Gentry.

Next show is the MODLITE class and there is no shortage of competition. Tracy Fritter has always been the target to defeat and has set the standard of performance many teams choose to emulate. True to form is the # 59 and on top of his game and quickly pulled away from the field. #59 was everyone’s target but became a very small object in everyone’s crosshairs. Fritter takes home the first win this year at Hilltop while the #17 of Brian Stulhdreier wished for two more laps. Stulhdreier was coming and only the checkers could take the win from him. Awesome show guys! We hope you come back to amaze us again!

Holmes Pest Control Street Stocks are the next venue to amaze every spectator! These guys came here with one thing on their mind…beat everybody else! I watched this class from the tower and will honestly confess that the show of desire and dedication to win is unmatched in any racing class.

The top five feature finish is: #12 Kyle Moore, #43 Mitch Caskey, #77 Dave Potts, #15B Butch Butcher, and #96 Ryan Wisecarver and put on a show worthy of recognition by every paper and media known to the region and abroad! This was one of many great shows that our season predicts and can modestly guarantee. Spectators should get here early to sound off their support to this amazing field of talent next week!

Bugs- R -Gone Trucks are next to put on a show that is equal in excitement and competition.

The payout and finish wraps up like this: 1st place goes to hard charging #58 Jerry Gardner, 2nd place is none other than #7 of J. Large, while the 3rd spot is earned by the #21 of Dewy Powell, who will be the hunter of next week’s honors! Bet on it!

A class that always goes overlooked by most would be the Mini-stocks. This is a class that is based solely on ingenuity, none of us have resources to speak of and the only desire is to be a part of the excitement. We have limited resources and simply want to race whatever will stand still long enough for us to grab ahold of! It is all fun; let’s see if anyone will notice!

These guys are good and raising the bar of competition in this class every time they collect themselves on the track, I personally believe that this class will bring the greatest turnout of fans than any other class. The Mini Stock feature ended like this: The top 3 are 1st -- #83 Jordan James, 2nd place # 28 Gary Hensel Jr. and 3rd place is the #429 of Kevin Markey. Hilltop Speedway’s final feature brings everyone to a place of expectation; the Mini Stock Novice. These racers are the next generation of superstars. These are the youngest racers on track in an adult race car and get an opportunity to see first-hand what the hype is all about. They put on an awesome show for us and we welcome them back with a smile on our face. The top 3 in the Mini Stock Novice were: 1st place was earned by #89 -- Byron King, 2nd place went to the #01of Colten Priebe, and 3rd place is the hard charging #84 -- Colten St. John.

Our hats are off to all the teams, drivers, and certainly the new and returning staff of Hilltop Speedway! It was an awesome season opener and leaves everyone anxious to come back and race again!

Millersburg, Ohio

By Mike Swanger

Millersburg’s Charlie Duncan collected his second Holmes Tire Late Model  crown (2010) by gathering in 1354 points for the year as he had 12 top fives with one feature win and five second place finishes to beat out last years champion, JR Gentry, who had 1263 points. George Lee finished third as Ty Myers was fourth and Ryan Markham ended up fifth in the points. Filling out the top ten were Wayne Maffett Jr., Brad Malcuit, Justin Patterson, Rick Bond and Brian Giaugue.

Urichsville’s John Sluka posted his first Raceday Photos Modified crown as his 12 top ten’s, that included one win, a second and five fifth place finishes, totaled up to 1361 points and a 71 point margin over runner-up Vic Hottinger, who was just 2 points ahead of Rick Mardis. Rounding out the top five were Robin Duston and Norm Aronhalt while Jimmy Smith, Matt Samples, Tim Arnold, Nathan Loney and Kevin Morehouse were 6th through 10th.

Out of 15 races, Zanesville’s Ryan Wisecarver’s worst finish was a ninth place as he garnered in 1445 points to claim the Street Stock championship for the first time. He recorded one feature win, 3 second places and 5 third place runs to beat out 2009 champ, Brandon Gardner, who kept the points race close by pocketing 7 feature wins. Bob Chilcote finished third with Brian Simpson took fourth in his first year of racing on the dirt oval as Bob Daugherty was fifth. Kyle Dickinson, Cliff Staley, Jason Shairer, John Wilson and Todd Swim filled in the sixth through tenth slots.

For the fourth season in a row, Sunbury’s Kevin Potts claimed the Bugs-R-Gone truck title as he finished in the top five in every points race for this season, posting 2 wins along the way in collecting up 1308 markers for the crown. John Large kept the points race close as he only had two finishes out of the top ten to trail in the points by 21 at seasons end. Cole Lillibridge finished third as Brad Phillips and Travis Winterringer tied for fourth. Jim Large, Dewey Powell, Jerry Gardner, Josey Lillibridge, David Potts and Mike ‘Moose’ Workman finished out the top truck drivers.

In the closest of all the points battles, Wooster’s Brad Hensel edged out Jason St. John by a mere 13 points (1518 to 1505) to win his first crown.

MORAN, MOREHOUSE & HENSEL JR. BIG WINNERS OF HILLTOP SPEEDWAY’S ‘WEEK-END ON THE HILL’
Millersburg, Ohio
Sunday, September 29, 2013
By Mike Swanger
 
The biggest Week-end on the Hill at Hilltop Speedway is now in the record books as eight class’ of cars competed over the two day show. The Late Models, Renegade of Dirt Modifieds and the Mini Stocks did their qualifying, heat races and dash’s on Saturday with the last chance and features on Sunday. Rick Aukland would be the fast qualifier as George Lee, Jason Flory, Norm Aronhalt and Dave Hornikel would lead the way in the heat races as Dresden’s Devin Moran would win the dash to start on the pole of the 40 lap feature. Outside polesitter Ty Myers would challenge the Custom Cutters and Donnie Moran Racing #99m of Moran for the opening two laps of the feature as Moran would open up a small advantage as Myers and Aukland would battle back and forth all race long for second. The Carpenter boys would run fourth and fifth until lap 29 when Tyler Carpenter suffered a flat tire and retired to the pits as Freddie Carpenter held on to fourth. During the first 29 circuits, the fans were watching JR Gentry and Doug Drown work their way through the field as they both had won a last chance race and had started 15th and 16th respectively. In the last ten laps, Moran would pull away and pick up his first win this year and the $4,000 payday along with his fourth victory all time at Hilltop. Aukland would hold off Myers for second and Freddie Carpenter edged out Gentry by a nose for fourth as Drown, Steve Prince, Brad Malcuit, Lee, and Wayne Maffett Jr. filled out the top ten.
The Renegades of Dirt Modifieds would have their final points race and a 40 lap, $4,000 to win show with Rick Aukland being the quick timer again and then clinch the championship by winning his heat race. Kevin Morehouse, Nick Hoffman and Doug Drown would also post heat wins with Morehouse capturing the dash. Kyle Strickler and Anthony Kinkade topped the last chance races. Morehouse would lead all the way although Drown made a slide job in turn four on lap 16 but could not make it stick and ended up losing to place to Hoffman and Aukland. On the last lap Hoffman pulled alongside Morehouse but slammed the turn two wall hard and ending his chance for the win. For Morehouse, it was his 4th win at Hilltop this season and his 39th all time and his third straight Week-end on the Hill victory at the Holmes County speedplant.

The Mini Stocks would be chasing after a $1,000 to win 30 lap feature with Wooster’s Gary Hensel Jr. popping into the lead from the outside front row and lead all the way with Jordan James and dash winner Terry Adkins right on his tail. The last three laps would see James try a different line but could not get past his team car of Hensel Jr. as he would go to victory lane for the second time this year aboard the Lochevale Farms, Thompson’s Garage and E.A. Constuction #28h and his fifth all time at Hilltop. Jerry Adkins made a late run to grab fourth as 17th starting Derek Penley got past a fading Moose Workman for fifth with two laps to go. Workman and Don Rufener III won the heat races as Brad Hensel won the last chance race. Penley was disqualified from being the fast qualifier after having an illegal tire on so that award went to Chris Priebe.
Driving the 99x, Jackson’s Steve Cruse went flag to flag to win the Outlaw Mini Stock main for the third time in four years. John Schooler was running second until he caused a caution on lap 6 and giving second place to Don Rufener Jr. and he would hold off Schooler in the last two laps for second as Kyle Moyer recorded a fourth place finish with Scott Henry claiming fifth. Schooler and Cruse scored the heat wins.
Zanesville’s Tracy Fritter held off early challenges from Kenny Meadows and then drive away to secure his third Mod Lite win of the season aboard the #59 machine. Meadows kept Anthony Kinkade at bay to finish second while Doug Stanley slipped past Brian Stuhldreher with four laps to go for fourth. Fritter, Meadows and Kinkade paced the heats.
Phil Bubeck, Braxton Wilson and Cody Anderson won the heats of the Mini Wedges as Bubeck and Wilson would duel for the lead at the start of their feature but Weirton’s WV Bubeck would scoot to his third victory of the season as last chance winner Eva Knight picked her way through the field to take second. Dalton Anderson finished third with Cody Anderson and Wilson filling out the top five.
In Saturday’s action, Mansfield’s Kyle Moore and the Char’s Cars and Met’s Machine Shop #21d lead all the way for his second Street Stock win of 2013. Numerous cautions kept the field bunched together as pole sitter Kyle Dickinson broke on the second lap as he challenged Moore for the lead. Scott Wolford would pester Moore for the rest of the race but never could swipe the lead away. Mitch Caskey finished third with Tim Penley and Rob Parker rounding out the top five. Dickinson, Moore, Caskey and Wolford posted the heat wins as Matt Shroyer picked up the last chance win.
Travis Winterringer set the pace for the opening lap of the Truck feature but after that it was Galena’s Rolly Heyder taking over. Heyder and his Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Nichols Towing #10 would be closely followed by Bill Keeler and on the last lap as they encountered lapped traffic, Keller momentarily moved in front of Heyder but as they sped down the backstretch, Heyder reclaimed the lead and post his fourth win of the season. Keeler was chased across the finish line by Cole Lillibridge, Mike Sawmiller and Danny Kelly. Heat winners were Winterringer and Keeler.

GENTRY STREAKS TO THIRD WIN IN A ROW AT HILLTOP SPEEDWAY; SLUKA TOPS MODIFIEDS, GARDNER, JAMES, LILLIBRIDGE AND McLOUGHLIN  ADD WINS

Millersburg, Ohio

Saturday, August, 17, 2013

By Mike Swanger

 

JR Gentry has been on a roll the last few weeks and he kept it going on Season Championship night at Hilltop Speedway Saturday night as he was the fast qualifier, won the dash, and lead all the way in the feature for the Holmes Tire Late Models driving the El Campensino Restaurant, Schaffer Oil and Weekley Electric #14. Mike Lonas led the field into turn one at the start but as they came out of turn two, Gentry powered his way past Lonas with George Lee on his tail as Ty Myers, Lonas, Brad Malcuit and  7th starting Charlie Duncan were bunched together for third. Duncan suffered a flat tire on lap 12 but would return and two laps later, Lonas and Malcuit went pitside with flats and not return to the race track. Duncan would work his back up using the extreme low line through the corners and challenge Myers for third as Wooster’s Gentry was still being shadowed by Lee. Lee tried the low line a couple of times to get past Gentry to no avail. With four laps to go Duncan cleared Myers for third and then as all four went into turn four with the checkered flag raised, Lee bounced off the wall to allow Duncan and Myers both to get by and end up second and third with Lee hanging on to fourth with Kyle Moore collecting fifth as Gentry posted his third win in a row. Duncan won the heat race and just by starting the feature, locked up his second Hilltop Speedway crown.

The Raceday Photo Modified main was caution filled as almost everyone in the field was in a skirmish of some kind. Nathan Loney won the dash to start on the pole and would set the pace for the first nine laps but when he bobbled coming out of turn four, that allowed Urichsville’s John Sluka to close in and as they went into turn one, made contact with Loney being charged with the caution as he would then go pitside. Sluka would become the race leader with Vic Hottinger, Matt Samples, Robin Duston , Jeff Votaw and fast qualifier Norm Aronhalt in pursuit. Following the Loney/Sluka incident, three more cautions were thrown before lap ten could get recorded as the last one was for Aronhalt, who was sent to the tail. As action finally got back to green flag action, Sluka and his Freight Station Oven Works #21j put some breathing room between himself and Samples who was fending off Hottinger for second while Aronhalt had worked his way back to fourth. They would finish in that order with Rick Mardis taking fifth. Votaw and Hottinger topped the heat races. Sluka’s win clinched his first Hilltop Championship.

Miamisburg’s Brandon Gardner and Ryan Wisecaver would win the heats of the Street Stocks to start on the front row with Kyle Dickinson joining them in a race long three way battle for the lead. Wisecarver put the early pressure on the Schaffer Oil, Innovative Graphics and GLR #27g of Gardner but Dickinson would take over second with six laps to go and tried everything he could to get by Gardner but came up short as Gardner won his 7th feature of the season and mark up his 45th win overall at Hilltop. Wisecarver, who locked up his first Hilltop Championship, held off a late run by Todd Swim finished third with Charlie Dawson taking fifth.

A big crash at the start of the Mini Stock Main wiped out five cars with Tyler Beckett ending up on his lid in the infield just past the flag stand but was ok. Once the race went green, it was all Jordan James as the Loudonville driver put the Lochevale Farms, E. A. Construction, E.A. Excavating #83 into victory lane for the sixth time this year. Chris Priebe, who was the other heat winner with James, finished seconds as Gary Hensel Jr. outdueled Jason St. John for third with Jerry Adkins filling out the top five. Brad Hensel’s sixth place finish earned him his first Hilltop Championship.

John Large led the opening seven laps of the Bugs-R-Gone Truck feature but after a caution flag, Cole Lillibridge of Warsaw motored by on the restart to park the Dillion’s Pumping Service #52 in victory lane for the 7th time this year. Kevin Potts snuck by Large on the last lap to grab second with Jerry Gardner and Brad Phillips rounded out the top five. Large and Gardner notched the heat wins. Potts, just by starting the feature won his fourth straight championship.

Destine Bates, Aiden Fritter and Tanner McLoughlin each led two laps of the A-1 feature for the Mike’s Service Mini Wedges with McLoughlin leading the most important one, the last one, to win his third feature of the season at Hilltop aboard the McLoughlin Auto Sales and 2Brothers Motorsports #59. Bates finished second as Tristen Brown locked up the points title with a third place finish. Caiden Black and Fritter filled out the top five. Braxton Wilson went flag to flag for the A-2 feature win as the Coshocton based, Morehouse Logging and A&B Constuction #28 was followed by Tyler Tennant, Logan Duncan, Danny Selway and Kryssa Beagle. Heat winners were Brown, Nick Large and McLoughlin.

Powder Puff winners were Jessica Mardis (mods), Bobbi Grandstaff (l.m.), Chelsea Chilcote (s.s.), Katie Thomas (minis), Amanda Wilson (trucks) and in the open wedge race, it was Jeff Carpenter.

The next race at Hilltop Speedway will be the Week end on the Hill September 28th and 29th. Watch the website for more info at www.hilltopspeedway.org

DE JA VU FOR GENTRY IN HILLTOP L.M’S; T. WILSON & T. McLOUGHLIN RETURN TO VICTORY CIRCLE; DICKINSON, LARGE, HENSEL JR. & FRANKENBERRY 1st TIME WINNERS

Millersburg, Ohio

Saturday, August 10, 2013

By Mike Swanger

 

For most of the Holmes Tire Late Model feature, it was a rerun of last weeks event that saw JR Gentry being chased by George Lee and for Gentry, it was the same finish for the second week in a row at Hilltop Speedway in front of a filled grandstand of fans. The difference this week was that the Wooster driver would win the dash to start on the pole with points leader Charlie Duncan beside him. Duncan would hang tough with Gentry for the first four laps when sixth starting George Lee would put himself into contention by getting by Rick Bond for third on lap three and then duel with Duncan for second. With a couple of cautions and a red flag for Matt Robinette’s car getting on top of Keith Tish’s ride, ending both of their nights, the field stayed bunched together and following a Ty Myers caution on lap seven, the pace would pick up with Lee pestering Gentry for the lead with Duncan right behind them. With those three challenging for the lead, a four car battle for fourth was in progress with Bond, Dzugan Fire & Rescue quick timer Ryan Markham, Corey Conley and Brad Malcuit in the mix. As the laps clicked off, both Gentry and Lee would rub the walls in the corners with Lee’s car getting the rear spoiler pulled apart as Gentry and his El Campensino Restarant, Buckeye Container & Sluss Realty #14 was able to pull out to a five car length lead to win for the second week in a row. Duncan would edge past Lee for second as the white flag waved. Conley slipped past Bond for fourth with two laps to finish fourth as Bond held on to fifth. Conley and Myers won the heat races as Hornikel topped the last chance race.

Tanner Wilson of Zanesville set fast time for the Raceday Photo Modifieds and then finished second to Norm Aronhalt in the dash as those two would lead the field to the green flag but it was all Wilson out front of the feature. Aronhalt would give the Buckeye Screen Print and Lucas Oil #17 of Wilson a run early on but four time winner and sixth starting Jesse Wisecarver would take over second on lap nine but could never wrestle the lead away as Wilson would collect his second checkered flag in three week. Seventh starting Nathan Loney and last week’s winner, Jimmy Smith, would catch and join Aronhalt for a three way race for third with Loney taking third on lap 12 to finish there as Smith settled for fifth. Loney and Matt Samples chalked up the heat wins as Jason Graham posted the last chance win.

Kyle Dickinson had been close to winning a Street Stock feature at Hilltop Speedway this year but had always came up short until this week as he went flag to flag aboard the Nashport based, Creno’s Pizza and Jewett Motorsports #101 for the win. John Wilson was also looking for his first win hounded Dickinson for the lead while holding off points leader Ryan Wisecarver for second as the three heat winners would run top three all race long after Wisecarver edged past Brandon Gardner on the opening lap, who would spend the rest of the race trying to get back into the top three. Ninth starting Bob Chilcote worked his way up to fifth place finish.

Wooster’s Gary Hensel Jr. beat fellow heat winner Dustin Daugherty into turn one of the Mini Stock main and then spent all race with Daugherty on his rear bumper but held on to score his first win driving the Thompson’s Garage and DJ Directional Services #28h. Chris Priebe and Jason St. John finished a close third and fourth as last week’s winner, Terry Adkins filled out the top five.

Six time winner Cole Lillibridge and John Large of Warsaw, the two heat winners, battled for lead of the Bugs-R-Gone Truck feature with Large having a pass on Lillibridge negated by a caution flag on lap five. As the two raced for the lead, Lillibridge’s truck lost power on lap ten, giving the top spot to Large, who would finish the race out in front and put the L & L Auto and Advanced Auto Parts #17 into victory lane for the first time this year. Points leader Kevin Potts ran second followed by Jerry Gardner, Tom Garlick and Travis Winterringer.

The Modlites returned for some action at Hilltop Speedway and it was Painesville’s Tyler Frankenberry taking home his first win. Frankenberry and the Johnson Demolition #38 would lead all the way and cruise to the victory as Nick Crider held off two time winner Tracy Fritter for second with Brian Stuhldreher finished fourth in front of Gary Griffith. Heat wins were claimed by Frankenberry and Stuhldreher.

Tanner McLoughlin squeezed past race long leader Taylor Huggins on the last lap to win the A-1 feature for the Mike’s Service Mini Wedges as the Zanesville youngster put the McLoughlin Auto Sales and 2 Brothers Motorsports # 59 into the Hilltop Speedway victory circle for the second time. Phil Bubeck finished third behind Huggins as Destinie Bates and Hannah Rose rounded out the top five. In his first trip to Hilltop from Port Washington PA., Colten McPeek and his Impact Graphics & Design #13 passed Tyler Tennant on lap five to win the A-2 feature. Donovan Dickerson edged past Tennant on the last lap for second with Brayden Renfrew and Anthony Graham filling out the top five. McLoughlin, Chase Settles and Higgins scored the heat wins.

Season Championships will take place next Saturday, August 17th at Hilltop Speedway

GENTRY & SMITH GENERATE 1st HILLTOP SPEEDWAY WINS; GARDNER & LILLIBRIDGE CHALK UP 6th CHECKER FLAGS
 
Millersburg, Ohio
Saturday, August 3, 2013
By Mike Swanger
 
With it being Kid’s Night and Fan Appreciation night and after two weeks of rain outs, Hilltop Speedway was packed full of cars and fans ready for some racing action. Dash winner Dave Hornikel and Ryan Markham would bring the Holmes Tire Late Models to the green flag with Hornikel edging into the lead as JR Gentry slid into second and would go side by side with Hornikel for the top spot and would take over the lead on lap four. As those two were racing for the lead, Markham was in a three way battle for third with fast qualifier Charlie Duncan and George Lee with Ty Myers lurking behind them. Mechanical problems for Duncan’s ride on lap nine brought out the caution flag and on the restart, Lee bolted past Markham and Hornikel for second to challenge for the lead. With Gentry and his El Campesino Restaurant,, Schaeffer Oil, and Weekley Electric #14 using the high line, Lee took to the low side of the track and could get along side of Gentry but could never get past as the two separated theirselves from the rest of the field. As Hornikel ran third, Markham would glance off the wall on lap 13 that allowed Myers and Shane McLoughlin by with Wayne Maffett Jr. passing Markham three laps later. With the laps winding down, Gentry started to pull away from Lee but as the white flag waved, the caution flew, and on the restart, Gentry of Wooster held off one last charge by Lee to get his first win of the year at Hilltop Speedway as Hornikel finished third followed by Myers with Maffett Jr. squeezing past McLoughlin on the last lap for fifth. McLoughlin, Rick Bond and Maffett Jr. won the heat races as Kyle Moore topped the last chance race.
Fast qualifier Jesse Wisecarver jumped into the lead over dash winner Vic Hottinger at the drop of the green flag of the Raceday Photo Modified main and would set a fast pace as Hottinger’s feature lasted only four laps with transmission woes. Jimmy Smith would take over second at that time with Norm Aronhalt on his tail and Robin Duston in pursuit of them. With the first 15 laps going non stop and Wisecarver building a huge lead, Aronhalt bounced off the turn one wall and dropped out of action and then Wisecarver got into the back of Beau Bradley causing Bradley to spin with Wisecarver charged with the caution and before the race went back to green, the leader pulled off with Newark’s Jimmy Smith inheriting the lead with Robin Duston second but when the race resumed, Duston would bring out the caution as his left rear tire blew. That would put John Sluka and Nathan Loney behind the #280 of Smith and when the green reappeared, Sluka and Loney made contact that allowed Mike Mizer to get by for second and on the last lap, Loney was able to hang on to third with Aaron Scott and Bradley passing a fading Sluka for top five finishes. winning the heat races were Scott and Sluka
Miamisburg’s Brandon Gardner would lead flag to flag in the Street Stock feature for the sixth time this year and giving him 44 total wins at Hilltop Speedway but a last lap caution would give Ryan Wisecarver one last chance at the win. Early in the race, Todd Swim would take second from Quinten Lewis and pester the Rowtec, Schaeffer Oil, GLR #27g of Gardner for the lead but would fall back into a three way battle with Dave Haven Jr. and John Wilson as Wisecarver and Kyle Dickinson were trying to move up. With six laps to go Wisecarver powered past Wilson and then two laps later split Swim and Haven Jr. for second. Then on the last lap restart, Gardner rebutted Wisecarver’s bid for the win as Dickinson shot past Swim and Haven Jr. to finish third. Gardner, Lewis and Swim topped the heat races
Killbuck’s Terry Adkins grabbed the lead from fellow heat winner Jordan James at the start of the Mini Stock feature and they would go bumper to bumper for the first seven laps when James banged the turn one wall ending his night. Fifth starting Jason St. John would take up the challenge at that point but could not wrestle the lead away from the #23d of Adkins, who scored his second win of the season. Gary Hensel Jr. finished third with Jerry Adkins fourth as Chris Priebe, also a heat winner, rounded out the top five.
Heat winners Cole Lillibridge and John Large would bring the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks to the start of their feature and those two would go side by side for the opening two laps when Lillibridge started to pull away and the Warsaw youngster would breeze to his sixth win of the season driving the Dillion’s Pumping Service #52. Large would lose second place for one lap to Jerry Gardner but would reclaim it to take second for the fifth time this season as Gardner settled for third followed by Kevin Potts and Tom Garlick.
Zanesville’s Tanner McLoughlin inherited the lead from Destinie Bates on lap two of the Mike’s Service Mini Wedge A-1 Feature when Bates’ wedge quit running. McLoughlin and his 2 Brothers Motorsports and McLoughlin Auto Sales #59 would check into the Hilltop Speedway victory circle for the first time this year as Billy Dawson took home second with Logan Duncan, Aiden Fritter and Jeff Dovenbarger filled out the top five. Levi Bowen set the pace for the first four circuits for the A-2 Feature but it was Millersburg’s Tristen Brown overtaking Bowen at that point to score the win as Bowen finishe d second with Brayden Renfrew, Brooke Dawson, and Zoe Stafford trailing. Bates, Billy Dawson and Blake Morris won the heat races.
Another regular night of racing with the Modlites added in is set for next Saturday, August 10th with Season Championships coming up the next week at Hilltop Speedway.

HEYDER HAULS IN HILLTOP TRUCK WIN; LEE & SHROYER ADD TO WIN LIST; T.WILSON, ST. JOHN & B. WILSON GET 1st WINS

Millersburg, Ohio

Saturday, July 13, 2013

By Mike Swanger

 

After two weeks of rain outs, Hilltop Speedway got back into action with the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks finally getting to run their big race of the season and the wait was worth it for Galena’s Rolly Heyder as he started the night out by setting a new track record for the trucks at 18.980 seconds and then start on the outside front row with dash winner Bryan Lillibridge on the pole. At the drop of the green for the 20 lap feature, Heyder snared the lead aboard the Jack Maxton Chevrolet, Nichel’s Towing and Rader Construction #10 and after a couple of challenges early on from Lillibridge, pulled away to pocket the $400 first place money and post his third win of the season. Lillibridge held on to second as Jerry Gardner, Kevin Davis and Kevin Potts rounded out the top five with heat winner Tom Garlick taking sixth.

Dash winner Ty Myers and George Lee started up front of the Holmes Tire Late Model main with Myers taking control early with Lee in pursuit. With a fast pace set, the two leaders quickly got into lapped traffic and at the halfway mark, Myers went low and Lee went high coming out of turn four to get around a lapped car with Lee snagging the point and then the Loudonville driver would drive away in his LSI, Cowen Trucking and Bert Transmission’s #61 for his fourth win of the year. Myers took second ahead of fast qualifier Charlie Duncan with Ryan Markham and Jesse Wisecarver trailing. Wisecarver and Brad Malcuit topped the heats.

Zanesville’s Tanner Wilson set fast time for the Raceday Photos Modifieds and then finished second to Norm Aronhalt in the dash to start on the outside front row for their feature and when the green flag waved, out dueled Aronhalt for the opening two laps before pulling away in his Lucas Oil and Buckeye Screen Print #17 to put his name into the list of winners at Hilltop Speedway. It was a race long battle for third place with Jess Hartman, Kevin Morehouse and Jesse Wisecarver as those three would swap positions on each lap before finishing in that order. Heat winners Jimmy Smith and Nathan Loney would finish sixth and seventh.

John Wilson, Kyle Dickinson and Matt Shroyer won the heats for the Street Stocks to start in the top three positions for their feature with Wilson edging out Dickinson for the top spot on the opening two circuits but Shroyer took over second on lap three and then drove the Coshocton based, Service Welding #15s on a super slide job going into turn three on Wilson on came out of turn for on lap eight with the lead and never looked back for his third win of the season. Wilson hung on to second as Ryan Wisecarver motored past Dickinson with two laps to go to claim third as Brandon Gardner snatched fifth.

Jason St. John of Glenmont, celebrated his birthday by going flag to flag to win his first Mini Stock win of the season driving the Tobacco Hut #48. Terry Adkins and Brad Hensel was right on St. John’s rear bumper all race long but could never make the pass. James Priebe and Jordan James rounded out the top five as Priebe, St. John and Jerry Adkins notched the heat wins with Brian Wolford pacing the last chance race.

Braxton Wilson had three second place finishes so far in the Mike’s Service Mini Wedges and the Coshocton youngster finally broke through into the winner’s circle by leading all the way aboard the A & B Constuction, Coshocton Eagles and Innovative Graphics #28. Destinie Bates finished second with Brayden Renfrew, Tristen Brown and Tyler Tenant in tow. Blake Morris posted the win in the second feature with Kryssa Beagle, Hannah Rose, Taylor Huggins and Jeff Dovenbarger in the top five. Heat winners were Bates, Wilson and Brown.

It will be Fan Appreciation Night at Hilltop Speedway with a full regular racing card set for the Saturday, July 20th.

SHOWERS STOP HILLTOP SPEEDWAY’S ACTION
Millersburg, Ohio
Saturday, June 29, 2013
By Mike Swanger
 
For the last week in the North Central Ohio area, late afternoon into early evening showers and thunderstorms have ruined outdoor activities and Saturday night at Hilltop Speedway was no different. With Qualifying and Hot Laps almost finished, a steady rain began to fall for nearly 45 minutes before it became evident that Mother Nature was not going to let up and the track was forced to cancel the races.
Next Saturday night, July 6th will see the Renegades of Dirt Modifieds back on the ‘Hill’ for the second time this season with a $1,500 to win feature plus the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks will run their $400 to win feature that was rained out this week. The Holmes Tire Late Models and the Street Stocks will run a regular shows as the Modlites also return to the track. The Mini Stocks and the Mini Wedges will take the week off at Hilltop Speedway.
BOND & T. ADKINS POST 1st HILLTOP WINS; ARONHALT, GARDNER, HEYDER, FRITTER & BATES ADD TO THEIR WIN TOTALS
 
Millersburg, Ohio
June 22,2013
By Mike Swanger
 
With the hottest temperatures of the year and Supermoon in the sky, it was another night of excellent racing at Hilltop Speedway as dash winner Wayne Maffett Jr. led the way for the Holmes Tire Late Models for the first lap before Ryan Markham took over. They would go side by side for the next two laps before Markham secured the lead and Mansfield’s Rick Bond would challenge Maffett Jr. for second following a lap four caution for Charlie Duncan. Using the high groove, Bond pulled away from Maffett Jr and set sail for Markham as Dzugan Fite & Rescue Fast Qualifier JR Gentry, Dave Hornikel and Brad Malcuit worked on Maffett Jr. for third. Gentry would take third on lap 11 and pressured Bond for second, who was doing the same to Markham for the lead. With ten laps to go, mechanical issues sidelined Maffett Jr. as Duncan had worked his way back up to race Malcuit for fifth. At the five lap to go mark, Bond and Gentry were hot on Markham tail with Hornikel, Malcuit and Duncan battling for third. Coming out of turn four to complete lap 22, Markham spun to bring out the yellow flag as everyone was able to avoid hitting him. Markham pulled off as did heat winner Hornikel before the green flag flew again. On the restart with Bond leading and Gentry in second, Duncan slipped past Malcuit for third. Trying to grab the lead, Gentry went highside to get past Bond but bounced off the wall coming out of turn four with two laps to go and that allowed Bond some breathing room as Duncan and Malcuit moved past Gentry. Bond and his Eddleblute’s Garage, Donaldson Law Offices and Bond’s Septic Service #007 would pull into victory lane for the first time this season as Duncan took second ahead of Malcuit and Gentry. Vic Hottinger took fifth in his first start in a late Model at Hilltop.
Norm Aronhalt beat dash winner Jimmy Smith into turn one and would never look back to win his third Raceday Photo Modified feature aboard the Warsaw based Service Welding and Dari Hut # 309. Smith ran second for most of the race as fast qualifier Kevin Morehouse worked on him and with five laps to go, Morehouse powered past Smith for second but could not catch up to Aronhalt. As Smith finished third, Robin Duston took home fourth, his 7th straight top ten finish as points leader John Sluka edged out Bruce Miller for fifth. Chris Basich and Rory Reed pocketed the heat wins.
All season long, the Street Stocks have been the most highly competitive class at Hilltop Speedway and it continued that way as Kyle Moore won the dash to start on the pole but it was Bob Daugherty leading the feature on the opening lap and going into turn one on the second lap, Kyle Dickinson spun trying to get by Daugherty, to bring out the yellow flag. Daugherty gave up the lead to Moore on lap five and he would set the pace for the next four laps when he banged off the wall and Brandon Gardner of Miamisburg, who just took second from Daugherty, took control. All of this time there was a three car battle for third between Ryan Wisecarver, Bob Chilcote and Kyle Cline, as Dickinson was working his way back up to the front. With the Schaeffer Oil, RDL, and Innovative Graphics #27g of Gardner inching away and headed for victory circle for the fifth time this year, Moore and Wiscarver dueled for second but Moore again bounced off the wall and dropped back to fifth as Daugherty and Dickinson both got by to finish third and fourth. Moore, Daugherty and Dickinson scored the heat wins.
It has not been a good year for Terry Adkins as the defending track champion has posted only three top tens this year in the Thompson’s Garage Mini Stocks but he would muscle past fellow heat winners Brad and Gary Hensel Jr. on the opening lap and then drive away from them the rest of the way to collect his first win of the season aboard the Loudonville Tire #23d. It was a hotly contested race for second as five time winner Jordan James sliced and diced with the Hensel’s for second but had to settle for fourth after tagging the wall in turn three to allow Gary Hensel Jr. to grab second with Brad Hensel getting third at the line. Jason St. John worked his way through the field from his 16th starting spot to take fifth.
Galena’s Rolly Heyder repeated his win from two weeks ago as he went flag to flag again to win his second Bugs-R-Gone Truck feature aboard the Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Nichels Towing #10. John Large, who was the other heat winner with Heyder, ran second as it was beating and banging for the rest of the top five between Kevin Potts, David Potts, Travis Winterringer, Kevin Davis and five time winner Cole Lillibridge as they all swapped positions lap after lap. At the checkered flag following Heyder and Large, it was David Potts, points leader Kevin Potts and Winterringer.
The Modlites rolled into Hilltop Speedway for the second time this season and Zanesville’s Tracy Fritter made it two for two as he led from the drop of the green flag. Tyler Frankenberry edged past Brian Stuhldreher on the last lap for second as Chris Logan and Wayne Kintz rounded out the top five. Fritter and his #59 machine and Stuhldeher won the heats. The Modlites will return to Hilltop Speedway on Saturday, July 6th.
For the second week in a row, the girls rule the Mike’s Service Mini Wedge’s as Coshocton’s Destinie Bates wins the A-1 feature for the second straight week. Phil Bubeck was the leader for the first two laps but Bates and her A & B Roofing and Construction, Coshocton Moose Lodge#935 and Elliott’s Excavating #500 took over at that point and win her second A-1 main of the season. Bubeck and Blake Morris flip flopped second the last three laps with Morris winning over that spot as Brooke Dawson finished fourth in front of Logan Duncan. Taylor Huggins passed Tristen Brown on the last lap of the A-2 feature for the win aboard the John’s Lawn Care and Glen’s Sales & Service #99h to make it an all girls victory lane. Brown edged out Hannah Rose for second as Brayden Renfrew and Braxton Wilson filled out the top five. Bubeck, Bates and Karyssa Beagle toped the heat races.
Double action next week-end at Hilltop Speedway as the Ohio Outlaw Motorsports take over on Friday night with Quads and Motorcycles doing the entertaining and then a regular night of racing on Saturday night with all six divisions in action.

WISECARVER GRABS HILLTOP’S STREET STOCK INVITE; LEE, HOTTINGER, JAMES, LILLIBRIDGE & BATES TAKE CHECKERED FLAGS

Millersburg, Ohio

Saturday, June 15, 2013

By Mike Swanger

 

After nine weeks of racing, Zanesville’s Ryan Wisecarver had nine straight top ten finishes and is the points leader in the Street Stocks but was still looking for his first win of the season. Saturday night he picked the right time to win his first as he held on to pocket the $1,000 winners share. Starting on the pole by winning the dash, Wisecarver out dueled Bob Daugherty for the first three laps until Ryan West took up the challenge on lap four with Kyle Dickinson moving past Daugherty on the next circuit. Those three would go all race long with in a car length of each other with West able to lead on laps 13 and 14 with Wisecarver reclaiming the point on lap 15 and keep it for good and put the Russ James Construction and Bob and Earl’s Barber Shop #96 in victory lane by inches. The threesome came out of turn four on the last lap three wide with Dickinson coming up short for second with West right behind for third. Kyle Moore finished fourth with fast qualifier Matt Shroyer taking fifth. Todd Swim, Brandon Gardner and Bob Chilcote won the heats as Brad Eagle snatched the last chance race.

It was a rough night for the Holmes Tire Late Models as only nine of the starting 19 cars were around for the checkered flag. JR Gentry won the dash to start on the pole and led the first ten laps when last week’s winner, Ryan Markham took over as Gentry tagged the wall hard coming out of turn four two laps later to end his evening. George Lee, Charlie Duncan, Wayne Maffett Jr., Dzugan Fire & Rescue fast qualifier Rick Bond and Dave Hornikel were all bunched together scrambling for position up to that time behind the leaders. Following the caution for Gentry, Markham and Lee leaned on each other a couple of times for the top spot and following another caution for Ty Myers on lap 17, Lee of Loudonville, would dart in front of Markham on the restart and opened up a safe lead and take the Cowen Trucking, LSI, Mudslinger Coffee #61 to victory lane for the third time this season. Markham would finish second with Duncan, Bond and Hornikel filling out the top five. Myers and Norm Aronhalt picked up the heat wins.

It also was not an easy night for the Raceday Photo Modifieds as out of their starting 19 cars, only 8 saw the finish. Norm Aronhalt popped into the lead at the drop of the green but during a caution on lap two, a belt slipped off Aronhalt’s ride that ended his run and gave the lead to dash winner John Sluka. Sluka would head the pack for the next three laps as Dresden’s Vic Hottinger and his Coshocton Trucking and Coyote Race Cars #4h would take over at that point with Robin Duston checking into second on lap 7 with fast qualifier DJ Cline moving to third at the halfway mark. Duston and Cline would hound Hottinger for the next four laps when another caution flew and Duston pulled off with mechanical problems. Cline could never find the combination to get past Hottinger, as he would win his first of the season and second ever at Hilltop Speedway. Rick Mardis finished third with Rex Slaughter taking fourth ahead of Sluka. Heat winners were Mardis and Jimmy Smith.

Thompson’s Garage Mini Stock heat winners Brad Hensel and Greg Thompson set on the front row of their feature but by the end of the race both were back in the pits. Hensel would set the pace for the first two laps but it was Loudonville’s Jordan James taking the point and cruising to his fifth win of the season aboard the Adams Excavating, E.A. Construction and Lochevale Farms #83. Jason St. John held off Blaine Markey for second with Jerry Adkins in fourth ahead of James Priebe.

John Large and fellow heat winner Jerry Gardner brought the field of Bugs-R-Gone Trucks to the green flag with Large setting the early pace. Seventh starting Cole Lillibridge worked his way past Gardner for second on lap four and two circuits later passed Large for the lead and then drive away for his fifth victory of the year in the Warsaw based, Dillion’s Pump Service #53 truck. Large would hang on to second with David Potts, Gardner and Kevin Potts following.

Blake Morris pulled off after leading the first lap of the Mike’s Service Mini Wedge first main with Hannah Rose taking over at that point but Destinie Bates of Coshocton would pass Rose with two to go and end up parking the A&B Roofing, Elliot’s Excavating and Coshocton Moose #935 in victory lane for the first time this season. Rose would finish second with Billy Dawson, Logan Duncan and Nick Large rounding out the top five. In the second main Brayden Renfrew grabbed the lead from Danny Selway on lap three to win his first main as Brooke Dawson, Zoe Stafford, Kolton Thomas and Selway followed. Morris, Chase Settles and Braxton Wilson topped the heat races.

Saturday, June 22 will be a regular show with the Modlites added to the program at Hilltop Speedway with race time at 7:30 pm

HILLTOP’S MID SEASON CROWNS CLAIMED BY MARKHAM, MOREHOUSE, GARDNER, HENSEL, HEYDER & MORRIS
Millersburg, Ohio
June 8, 2013
By Mike Swanger
 
After a week off because of rain and Mid Season Championships on the line, the pits and stands were full at Hilltop Speedway for some action packed racing. Dash winner Ty Myers and Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast qualifier George Lee sat on the front row of the Holmes Tire Late Model feature but that was short lived as Lee smacked the wall in turn one on the start, ending his night quickly. That would move Ashland’s Ryan Markham up to the outside front row and he and Myers would go side by side until Myers would spin out on lap seven. JR Gentry, Tyler Carpenter and Rick Bond were locked up in the battle for third up to that point in the race and when the race went back to green, Gentry started to hound Markham for the lead as Carpenter and Bond went back and forth for third with Charlie Duncan, Wayne Maffett Jr. and Brad Malcuit dueling for fifth. With Markham using the high groove and Gentry driving the low line, they pulled away from the rest of the contenders and as they came up on the back of the field, Markham and his Malcuit Engines and Rocket Chassis #5m would slice his way through the slower cars and pull away from Gentry to post his first win of the year at Hilltop. Carpenter won the battle for third over Bond as Maffett Jr. took fifth as Myers worked his way back up to sixth. Carpenter and Bond scored the heat wins.
Jess Hartman beat dash winner Kevin Morehouse into turn one and set the pace for the Raceday Photos Modified feature with fast qualifier Jesse Wisecarver, Jimmy Smith, Nathan Loney and Robin Duston hooked up for third. Hartman started to get slowed up by a pack of cars that were racing for position theirselves late in the race which allowed Morehouse to close in. On the white flag lap, Hartman made contact with end of the lead lap car of Gary Clark as Hartman was coming out of turn four for the checkered flag. Clark’s car collected Matt Samples vehicle and because of that wreck, Hartman was charged with starting the melee and was placed to the end of the lead lap cars which was 11th as Morehouse and his Morehouse Logging and Sam’s Used Cars #28 collected the checkered flag. Wisecarver finished second as Jimmy Smith held off Nathan Loney for third with Robin Duston pocketing fifth. Heat winners were David Bodkins and Bruce Miller as Samples won the last chance race.
Steve Wolford led the opening two laps of the Street Stock main from his starting pole position but it was Miamisburg’s Brandon Gardner propelling into the lead on lap three and take the Schaeffer Oil and Rowtec #g27 into victory lane for the fourth time this year. Bob Daugherty slipped past Wolford with three laps to go for second as Ryan West recovered from an early spin to finish fourth as Tony Cline filled out the top five. Wolford, Bob Chilcote and Gardner collected the heat wins with Gary Hensel Sr. topping the last chance race.
Wooster’s Brad Hensel and his Sportsman’s Bar and DJ Directional Services #28 was challenged all race long by Jordan James and held on for his third Thompson’s Garage Mini Stock feature victory. As the two heat winners battled for the lead, Jason St. John was in the mix in case they slipped up but settled for third with Blaine Markey and James Priebe rounding out the top five.
Rolly Heyder and Jim Large won the Bugs-R-Gone Truck heat races but their night would end completely different. Galena’s Heyder would go flag to flag aboard the Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Nichels Towing #10 for his first victory of the season while Large, who is in his 80’s and doubles as the track chaplain, rolled and bounced off the catch fencing in turn two on the last lap. He was ok after the crash. Cole Lillibridge ran second as Kevin Potts, John Large and Jerry Gardner rounded out the top five.
Braxton Wilson led the way for the opening three laps of the Mike’s Service Mini Wedge first feature but spun out on lap four as Zanesville’s Blake Morris inherited the lead and then take the Morris Trucking #1 to victory circle for the fourth time. Phil Bubeck, Tristen Brown, Aiden Fritter and Logan Duncan filled out the top five. Warsaw’s Nick Large made a last lap pass on Hannah Rose for the second feature win as Dan Selway, Karyssa Beagle and Tyler Tennant trailed. Duncan, Wilson and Morris claimed the heat wins.
Next Saturday night will be the Street Stock Invite as they will run for $1,000 to win as all other class’ will be in regular action at Hilltop Speedway with race time set for 7:30 pm.

LEE, ARONHALT, SHROYER, JAMES, LILLIBRIDGE & MORRIS RETURN TO HILLTOP'S VICTORY LANE
Millersburg, Ohio
Saturday, May 25, 2013
By Mike Swanger
 
On Driver's Autograph night at Hilltop Speedway, all six feature winners signed back into victory circle for at least the second time this season. Scott Peltz won the dash for the Holmes Tire Late Models but it was outside front row starter George Lee grabbing the point at the drop of the green with Peltz in second as three caution flags in the opening six laps kept the pace slowed up. Once the race stayed green, Lee and his LSI, Cowen Truck Line, and Mudslinger Coffee #61 would pull away from the field as Peltz, Ryan Markham, Charlie Duncan, and Dzugan Fire & Rescue fast qualifier JR Gentry would go side by side, nose to tail for second. Lap 14 would see Peltz start to slip back as a tire was losing pressure and he would pull off three laps later with Markham, Gentry, Duncan and Dave Hornikel now vying for second. With five to go and Lee of Loudonville well on his way to his second win of the season, Markham took control of second with Gentry holding off Duncan for third as Hornikel claimed his first top five of the year and his first heat win as did Justin Patterson.
 Warsaw's Norm Aronhalt picked up the dash win and then went flag to flag to win his second feature of the year in the Raceday Photo Modified main. Driving the Service Welding, Dari Hut, and B & B Vinyl Designs #309 would hold off early challenges from quick timer Jimmy Smith and Matt Samples until mechanical issues stopped Smith and a flat tire for Samples at the halfway mark. Using the high line, Aronhalt would stretch his lead out as John Sluka, Brandon Morrow and Rick Mardis in the last half of the feature. Sluka and Morrow went back and forth for second with Sluka winning that battle at the checker flag with Mardis pocketing fourth over Beau Bradley. Bradley and Morrow topped the heats.
 Bob Chilcote, Matt Shroyer and Ryan Wisecarver posted the heat wins for the Street Stocks and Shroyer of Coshocton would jump into the lead at the drop of the green flag and drive the Service Welding #15s to his second straight win. John Wilson started 14th and had worked his way into third behind Wisecarver on lap eight as those two and Bob Daugherty and Chilcote all were bunched together. With two to go, Daugherty slipped past Wilson for third and on the white flag lap, edged past Wisecarver for second. Kyle Dickinson, who started 19th, passed Chilcote on the last lap for fifth.
 Loudonville's Jordan James and his Lochevale Farms, Loudonville Tire, and Activewear #83 won the second heat race to start on the outside pole and led all the way to collect his fourth Thompson's Garage Mini Stock win of the year. Third heat winner Jason St. John finished second as he with stood runs by Gary Hensel Jr. and Brad Hensel as James Priebe capturing fifth. Billy Parsons won the first heat.
 Warsaw's Cole Lillibridge and John Large secured the heat wins to start on the front row of the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks and Lillibridge would sprint out to the lead and never look back to post his fourth win of the season aboard the family owned #52. Large would be pestered by Kevin Potts for second and with five circuits to go, Potts finally squeezed by to gain second ad Large finished third with David Potts and Rolly Heyder filling out the top five.
 Blake Morris and Tristen Brown have dueled for wins in the Mike's Service Mini Wedges and it was no different tonight as Morris of Zanesville gave the lead up on lap four to Brown but came back on the next lap to regain the point and then close it out with his third win of the season aboard the Morris Trucking #1. Taylor Huggins , Aiden Fritter and Logan Duncan rounded out the top five. The second main would see Livia Large of Warsaw winning over Hannah Rose, Zoe Stafford, Kyla Dillon and Brayden Renfrew. Heat wins went to Morris, Fritter and Destinie Bates, who at the end of the 1st main, would hit a tire at high speed nose first, She was transported to the hospital to be checked out and was back at the track before the races were finished.
 Regular racing with the Modlites returning is on the schedule for Saturday, June 1st at Hilltop with racing starting at 7:30 pm.

DROWN WINS HILLTOP'S 1st JERRY REED MEMORIAL; MOREHOUSE DOUBLES UP MODIFIEDS
Saturday, May 18, 2013
Millersburg, Ohio
By Mike Swanger
 
 The ADRA presented by Sudden Link pulled into Hilltop Speedway Saturday night for the first annual Jerry Reed Memorial race. Reed was the track chaplain since the track reopened back in 2006 and had passed to be with the Lord in Heaven during the off season. Wooster's Doug Drown started the night out by setting the Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast time and then with the ADRA's driver redraw of the six fastest pulled the #1 pill to start on the pole of the dash but it was George Lee taking the win from the second starting position. At the start of the 30 lap main, Lee set the pace for the opening 13 circuits with Drown right with him and as they started into lapped traffic, Lee got blocked and Drown went low to swipe the point and Lee would now become the chaser. Behind the two front runners, JR Gentry, Rod Conley, Charlie Duncan, Scott Peltz, Rick Bond and Ryan Markham were bunched together for the third spot. At the 10 to go mark, Drown and his Weekley Electric and Wooster Glass #63 had opened up about a five car length lead of Lee as Duncan, Gentry and Conley in the top five as Bond, Markham and Todd Brennan was battling for position. The caution flew on lap 24 when Markham was charged for spinning out Brennan. Using the Delaware restart line up for the restart, Drown stayed out front as Gentry powered past Duncan for third and then with three laps to go moved past Lee for second. Coming out of turn four with the white flag waving, Gentry was able to show his nose to Drown but could not make the pass as Drown won his third feature of the season at Hilltop. Lee and Duncan trailed as Brennan passed Conley on the next to last lap for fifth. Heat winners were Duncan and Markham
 The Raceday Photos Modifieds had two features to race with the make up of last week first on tap first and Robin Duston would lead the way for the first two laps before Kevin Morehouse would put the Morehouse Logging, Ports Petroleum, Sam's Used Cars #r88 out front for good as Norm Aronhalt moving by Duston into second on lap five but he could not track down Morehouse. Duston held on to third as Matt Samples and Vic Hottinger filled out the top five. Aronhalt would set fast time for the regular night of racing but it was Morehouse winning the dash to set on the pole of the feature and breeze to his second feature win of the night With Aronhalt having to change a flat tire early and going to the back of the field, Duston, Hottinger and Samples continued their close quarters racing from the first feature and finish in that order and collect their second top five finishes of the evening with heat winner Rick Mardis claiming fifth. Jimmy Smith also picked up a heat win.
 Bob Daugherty and Matt Shroyer won the heats to start on the front row of the Street Stock main but Brandon Gardner was the one putting the early pressure on Daugherty and with those two hugging the bottom groove, Coshocton's Shroyer was searching for his fast line. Bob Chilcote, Ryan Wisecarver and a pair of Kyle's, Dickinson and Moore went back and forth for a top five finish. The yellow flag waved on lap seven and when the green flew again, Shroyer and his Service Welding #15s found the high groove to his liking and roared past Daugherty and Gardner two laps later to pull away for the win. Gardner slipped past Daugherty on lap ten for second as Chilcote outlasted Wisecarver for fourth.

LEE, DAUGHERTY, LILLIBRIDGE, FRITTER & BROWN BEAT HILLTOP SPEEDWAY RAIN

Saturday, May 11, 2013
Millersburg, Ohio
By Mike Swanger

The racing action opened up with mostly cloudy conditions then ended with the sky unloading the rain and cutting short the nights action at Hilltop Speedway. Loudonville's George Lee dominated the Holmes Tire late model action as he set the Dzugan Fire & Rescue fast time, won the dash to start on the pole of the feature and led all the way in the 25 lap event to post his first win of the season aboard the Cowen Truck Line, LSI, and Mudslinger Coffee #61. Charlie Duncan would challenge the 'General' early on, but he and Brad Malcuit dueled for second with an intense battle going on behind them that consisted of Ryan Markham, Rick Bond, JR. Gentry, heat winners Todd Brennan and Tyler Carpenter along with Ty Myers. Through the middle part of the race they were three wide and changing positions and lines all race lond as Lee drove away and Duncan secured second. With five to go, Gentry dropped with mechanical problems as Malcuit, Carpenter and Myers went three wide down the front stretch with Carpenter and Malcuit touching and sending Malcuit into the wall, ending his night with Carpenter also going pitside. On the restart, Lee would again speed away as Myers, who started ninth, tried to chase down Duncan for second and Bond and Brennan would bend some fenders before finishing in that order.
Mansfield's Bob Daugherty and John Wilson posted the heat wins to start on the front row of the Street Stock feature and they would run 1and 2 for the first two laps when Kyle Moore took over second with Brandon Gardner taking third from Wilson. Moore tried every line he could to get around the Char's Cars and Met's Machine Shop #21d of Daugherty and then on lap 11 got tangled up with the lapped car of Brian Simpson, ending their race. Daugherty held off Gardner on the restart to collect his second win of the season as Wilson claimed third with 14th starting Ryan Wisecarver taking fourth over Kyle Dickinson.
John Large started on the pole of the Bugs-R- Gone Truck race but spun out on the first lap and went to the back of the line on the restart as Warsaw's Cole Lillibridge took over and he never looked back and chalked up his third win of the season in the #52 truck with Rolly Heyder, Kevin Potts, John Large and Moose Workman filling out the top five as rain started to fall at the end of the feature. Heat winners were Large and Lillibridge.
Tracy Fritter of Zanesville zoomed into the lead at the drop of the green flag for the Modlite feature and he would never be challenged as Kenny Meadows was in pursuit with Kevin Nicolino, Tyler Frankenberry, Doug Stanley, David Innes and Brian Stuhldreher dicing for third. With a light rain falling, Nicolino would spin on lap ten to bring out the caution. Two more laps would get recorded before the rain picked up and the race was called complete just three laps short of the scheduled 15 laps with Fritter, Meadows, Frankenberry, Stanley and Innes the top five. Meadows and Fritter won the heats.
The Mike's Service Mini Wedge youngsters continue to impress as Millersburg's Tristen Brown and Braxton Wilson, the two heat winners, went side by side and back and forth in their feature with Brown sling shotting out of turn four to edge Wilson for the win at the finish line. Nick Large ran a close third with Karyssa Beagle and Brook Dawson rounding out the top five.
The rain caused the Raceday Photo Modifieds and the Thompson's Garage Mini Stocks features to be postponed until next week as they will have double features as next Saturday, May 18th will bring in the ADRA Late Models going for $2,000 to win, the Street Stocks along with the Mini Wedges as the Bugs-R-Gone trucks take the night off.

DUNCAN CHARGES TO HILLTOP L.M. WIN; ARONHALT STORMS TO MODIFIED CHECKER FLAG; GARDNER WINS 41st FEATURE

Saturday, May 4, 2013
Millersburg, Ohio
By Mike Swanger

Millersburg's Charlie Duncan has been knocking on victory circles door all season long and Saturday night it finally opened as he won the dash to start on the pole of the feature and then beat Ty Myers into turn one at the start and then led all the way aboard Hall's Auto Sales, Sluss Realty and Malcuit engines #240 for his first win of the year. As Duncan would enlarge his lead on each lap, Ryan Markham challenged Myers for second and they would go back and forth until Markham grabbed second for good on lap 17. A caution on lap twenty would bunch the field together and Markham would make a run on Duncan on the restart but came up short as Myers held on to third with JR Gentry, who was driving the #83 of Justin Patterson, finishing fourth as Brad Malcuit held off Dzugan Fire & Rescue fast qualifier George Lee for fifth. Wayne Maffett Jr. posted his second heat win of the season.
Jesse Wisecarver had won the first four Raceday Photo Modified races and was looking like he was on his way to another win after taking the point from Lance Elson on lap three of the feature. Anthony Kinkade and dash winner Elson battled for second until lap eight when fast qualifier Norm Aronhalt and heat winner Kevin Morehouse moved past Elson. A caution flag with five to go put the field in single file and on the restart Aronhalt and his Service Welding and Dari Hut #309 went to the highside and made quick work of Kinkade and then rocketed by Wisecarver coming out of turn four with four to go to pocket his first win of the year. Kinkade held off Morehouse for third as Robin Duston filled out the top five. Vic Hottinger also picked up a heat win.
Heat winners Brandon Gardner and Steve Wolford paced the Street Stock feature to the green flag and it was Miamisburg's Brandon Gardner taking control with last week's winner, Kyle Moore, sliding into second. Gardner and his Schaffer Oil, Innovative Graphics and GLR #27g built up a comfortable lead and drive to his third win of the season and his 41st all time victory at Hilltop. Moore was challenged late by Ryan Wisecarver for second but held on as Wolford took fifth and John Wilson out dueled Bob Chilcote for fifth.
Dustin Daugherty was looking for his second win of the season as he led the way for the opening three laps of the Thompson's Garage Mini Stock feature but it was Wooster's Brad Hensel slipping the Sportsman Bar and DJ Directional Services #28 to the top spot at that point and then held off Daugherty the rest of the way for his first win. Eighth starting Jerry Adkins moved past Billy Parsons with two to go for third as Gary Hensel Jr. claimed fifth. Daugherty, Hensel and Parsons topped the heats.
The Bugs-R-Gone Trucks heat winners of Rolly Heyder and Cole Lillibridge start on the front row with Heyder leading the first lap and Lillibridge taking over from there with Kevin Potts and John Large racing for third. A caution flag on the white flag lap would make it a one lap shoot out and as the field took the green flag, Heyder would pull up beside Lillibridge and as they came out of turn two made contact but kept going and as they came to the finish line Heyder was shown the black flag for rough driving giving the apparent win to Lillibridge but his truck did not pass post race inspection, giving the win to Sunbury's Potts and his Tickets Galore, Welders on Wheels and Proscape Landscaping #8k. John Large, Tom Garlick, Jim Large and Travis Winterringer rounded out the top five.
Colliers WVa's Phil Bubeck went flag to flag to pocket his second Mini Wedge victory of the season as Blake Morris ran second with Braxton Wilson, Tristen Brown and Chase Settles filling out the top five. In the second feature Jeromesville's Hannah Rose led all the way with Zoe Stafford, Nick Large, Caiden Black and Noah Bubeck trailing. Morris, P. Bubeck and Brown won the heats.
Starting next Saturday, racing will begin at 7:30 pm at Hilltop Speedway with Hot Laps and Qualifying at 6 pm at it will be another regular show with the Modlites returning to action. On Saturday, May 18th, the ADRA Late Models will roll into Hilltop Speedway with a $2,000 to win show.

4 IN A ROW FOR WISECARVER; DROWN, JAMES, LILLIBRIDGE & MORRIS DASH TO 2ND WINS; MOORE SETS NEW HILLTOP MARK

Millersburg, Ohio
Saturday, April 27, 2013
By Mike Swanger


The warmest weather of the year brought another big crowd and some more fast racing to Hilltop Speedway Saturday night. Zanesville's Jesse Wisecarver started the Raceday Photo's Modifieds night out by setting fast time but it was dash winner Tanner Wilson and Norm Aronhalt leading the field to the green flag for their feature with Tanner setting the pace for the first two laps as Wisecarver pulled into second at the drop of the green. Following caution on lap 2, Wisecarver powered past Wilson on the restart with Aronhalt, Kevin Morehouse and Jess Hartman doing the same. Those three would change positions during the next 6 laps when Morehouse would secure second and begin tracking down Wisecarver at the halfway mark as Aronhalt and Hartman dueled for third. Using the low groove, Morehouse closed in on Wisecarver through the corners but the Decker's Auto Service and Russ James Excavating #101 would pull away down the straightaways and win his fourth in a row by a couple of car lengths over Morehouse with Aronhalt, Hartman and Wilson following. Lance Elson and Jimmy Smith topped the heats with Beau Bradley claiming the last chance win.
Holmes Tire Late Model dash winner Rick Bond lead the way for the opening five circuits of the feature before JR Gentry took over with Charlie Duncan in third followed by fast qualifier Doug Drown, who timed in at 13.809, less than 3 tenths of a second off the track record. Bond would spin on lap nine and on the Delaware restart, Drown moved past Duncan and challenged Gentry for the lead and took over at the halfway point but Gentry came right back two laps later to regain the lead. Wooster's Drown, who started fifth, used the highside and reclaimed the top place with eight laps to go and held off the low groove running Gentry the rest of the way to put the Weekley Electric and Wooster Glass # 63 in victory lane for the second time this year. Duncan held on to third as ninth starting Ty Myers grabbed fourth in front of Ryan Markham. Bryan Casey and George Lee won the heats.
With 2 cautions and one red flag happenning before one lap was complete, half the field was eliminated from the Street Stock feature before it recorded the first lap. A four car pile up on the back stretch that saw Bryan Simpson on his side caused the red flag but all driver were OK. Steve Wolford was on the pole to start the race but it was Mansfield's Kyle Moore charging into turn one for the lead and go flag to flag for his first win aboard the Moore Auto Sales and Hall's Auto Sales #2. With the win, Moore becomes the first driver to win in three different class' at Hilltop as he has won in the Mini Stocks and the Cruisers division's. Bob Daugherty took second from Wolford on lap seven as Wolford had to battle Ryan Wisecarver for third and successfully did with Bob Chilcote rounding out the top five.
Dustin Daugherty was looking for his second win in a row for the Thompson's Garage Mini Stock's and led the way for the opening seven laps when Jerry Adkins took over. His lead only lasted two laps as Loudonville's Jordan James took over from his fourth starting position and then finished out the race in front driving the Lochevale Farms and 1st Choice Stump Grinding #83. Adkins held off Jason St. John for second as Brad Hensel and Daugherty filled out the top five. Heat winners were Daugherty, Adkins and Hensel with Chris Priebe scoring the last chance win.
Warsaw's Cole Lillibridge repeated his opening night actions by winning his heat and the leading all the way in the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks race for his second win in 2013. Rolly Heyder kept the pressure on the #52 truck of Lillibridge but settled for second as Kevin and David Potts ran third and fourth with Jerry Gardner taking fifth. Travis Winterringer was also a heat winner.
Blake Morris of Zanesville won his heat and then went flag to flag for the win for his second Mini Wedge victory, Heat winners Tanner McLoughlin and Tristen Brown ran second and third with Cadien Black and Zoe Stafford rounding out the top five. Destinie Bates won the second feature over C.J. Kinneer, Logan Duncan, Brooke Dawson and Livia Large.

WISECARVER RENEGADE'S KING OF THE HILL; CARPENTER HAMMERS SECOND L.M WIN IN A ROW AT HILLTOP

 
Millersburg, Ohio
Saturday, April 20, 2013
By Mike Swanger


For the second year in a row, the Edge Renegades of Dirt kick off their season at Hilltop Speedway in front of a cold but big crowd with 40 modifieds checking into the pits. Tanner Wilson would start the night by setting the 2 Brothers Motorsports fast time as the heat wins went to Jesse Wisecarver, Kyle Strickler, Kevin Morehouse and Jess Hartman while Rick Aukland and John Sluka posted the last chance races. Wisecarver of Zanesville won the first two features at Hilltop in his own car but tonite drove the UNOH, South Point, and 2 Brothers Motorsports #62. Starting on the outside front row, Wisecarver beat Hartman into turn one but a caution, the only one of the race, for Nascar's Kenny Schrader who spun Deanna Groves around. The second start saw the same thing as Wisecarver grabbed the lead with Morehouse pulling into second in front of Hartman. Morehouse and Hartman battled for second as Wisecarver would lead but as lapped traffic came into play, Morehouse was able to pull alongside Wisecarver on a couple of occasions but could never find the opening to get around Wisecarver's machine as he picked his way through the backmarkers and post his third win of the season at Hilltop. Morehouse and Hartman finished second and third as Mark Dickson and Anthony Kincade rounded out the top five.
Doug Drown and Tyler Carpenter were the feature winners in the first two weeks of the Holmes Tire Late Models at Hilltop and those two went at it for the win this week. Charlie Duncan and Carpenter won the heats to start on the front row with dash winner Ryan Markham and Dzugan Fire and Rescue fast qualifier Drown in the second row. At the drop of the green flag, Carpenter jumped into the lead with Drown on his bumper and the race was on as each lap they would out maneuver each other to swap the lead on each lap. As they pulled away from the field, Duncan, Markham and JR Gentry dueled for third with Scott Peltz, Steve Prince and Shane McLoughlin all bunched together. With four laps to go, Carpenter of Parkersburg WVa put his Pro Tech and Kryptonite Race Cars #28 secured the lead from Drown for the last time to pocket his second win in a row. Markham finished third with Peltz and Prince working their way into a top five finish.
Kyle Moore and Ryan Wisecarver won the heats of the Street Stocks to earn the right to start on the front row of their feature but Moore did not answer the bell for the start and that would move Miamisburg's Brandon Gardner to the pole and he would take the Innovative Graphics, Schaffer Oil, and GLR #27g and drive away from the field for his 40th all time win at Hilltop. The only thing that made it close was a caution flag on the last lap. Jason Jarrett ran second all race with challenges from Bob Daugherty, Kyle Dickinson and Todd Swim as the finished in that order.
Lakeville's Dustin Daugherty and Jerry Adkins must have been watching the Late Model feature closely as the went back and forth all race long in the Thompson's Garage Mini Stock Main with Daugherty and his Loudonville Tire #23d edging out Adkins for his first ever win at Hilltop. Jason St. John ran a close third as the chance to overtake the leaders never came about. Brad Hensel finished fourth as last chance winner and 16th starting Jordan James worked his way into fifth. Daugherty, Adkins and Blain Markey topped the heats.
Racing continues next Saturday, April 27th with the Late Models, Modifieds, Street Stocks Mini Stocks, Trucks, and Min Wedges all in action.

DROWN, WISECARVER, GARDNER, PRIEBE, LILLIBRIDGE, & BUBECK CLAIM OPENING NIGHT WINS AT HILLTOP
 
Millersburg, Ohio
Saturday, March 30, 2013
By Mike Swanger

Hilltop Speedway swung open the gates for a full house on the first night of the season on a cool night but the action was mid season form. Charlie Duncan led the Holmes Tire Late Models to the green flag and set the pace for the opening three circuits before Dzugan Fire & Rescue Fast Qualifier Doug Drown of Wooster powered past to take the point. Duncan would hang tough for the next five laps but Drown would start to pull away as George Lee started to pester Duncan for second. Lee could never get past Duncan and in the closing laps, Steve Prince challenged Lee for third but came up short to take fourth as heat winner Wayne Maffett Jr. ran fifth. For Drown, driving the Weekley Electric #63, it was his 20th all time win at Hilltop.
Heat winners Kevin Morehouse and Gary Clark started on the front row of the Raceday Photos Modified main with Morehouse grabbing the lead as Fast Timer and Dash winner Jesse Wisecarver charged into second. The Zanesville driver would take the lead from Morehouse on lap 6 and never look back aboard the Outlaw 101. At the halfway mark, Jess Hartman slipped past Morehouse for second and they would go side by side for the next three laps with Hartman claiming second. Vic Hottinger and John Sluka filled out the top five.
Brandon Gardner and Bob Daugherty posted the heat wins for the Street Stocks to start on the front row of their feature with Gardner of Miamisburg jumping into the lead at the drop of the green. Kyle Moore quickly took over second and spent the whole race trying to track down the #27g of Gardner to no avail as he would post his 39th win all time at Hilltop. Bob Chilcote and Ryan Wisecarver dueled for third with Chilcote winning the battle as Mitch Caskey rounded out the top five.
Mechanical woes knocked out first lap leader Dustin Daugherty in the Thompson Garage Mini Stock feature as Killbuck's James Priebe would inherit the lead and then fend off Jerry Adkins all race long to put the #7 in victory lane. Finishing second to Billy Parsons in the Last Chance race, Brad Hensel climbed through the field from 18th starting spot to grab third in the feature. A three way battle for fourth saw Terry Adkins hold off brothers Blaine and Kevin Markey. Heat winners were Daugherty, Priebe, T. Adkins and B. Markey. A 4th lap red flag for Chris Priebe, who rolled over as Greg Thompson hit a ute tire straight on at full speed and went ovet top of the tire. Thompson was transported fo observatory reasons.
Warsaw's Cole Lillibridge ended last season with a feature win in the Bugs-R-Gone Trucks and started out this season by going flag to flag for the opening night win aboard the #52 truck. John Large gave a race long run in second as it got a little testy in the final few laps between Rolly Heyder and David Potts as Potts bounced of the back stretch wall as Heyder was black flagged for rough driving. Kevin Potts finished third with David Potts hanging on to fourth with Brad Phillips bringing home fifth. Lillibridge and D. Potts won the heats.
Phil Bubeck and Blake Morris started in the second row of the Mini Wedge main but both were one-two by the end of the firs
