Wayne Johnson Added to the 2015 Lucas Oil ASCS Lineup!

TULSA, Okla. (April 15, 2015) If the lineup of talent that will follow the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real in 2015 wasn’t tough enough, you can add the 2000 National Tour Champion to that list as Oklahoma City’s Wayne Johnson has confirmed he will once again try for the season ending $60,000 champion’s check.

“We lost one of our sponsors, and right now it makes sense for me to run with ASCS. We’re still going to run a lot of 410cid shows when we’re not running ASCS, but right now for our budget we’re going to run the full ASCS National Tour,” explained Johnson. “There are good drivers with ASCS and for the most part, we’re all on the same playing field in terms of budget.”

Taking on the National Tour last in 2012, Johnson traded the points lead five times with Jason Johnson before ending his season runner-up.

Fresh off his first win of the season against the NSL at 34-Raceway in West. Burlington, Iowa, Johnson will pick up with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real this Saturday, April 18 at the Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo.

Wayne is currently 10th in National Tour standings.

With wins in 14 states with the Lucas Oil ASCS, Johnson has made the cut in 365 A-Features, putting the Oklahoma City native fourth in overall feature starts against the National Tour.

Overall, Johnson has 43 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour A-Feature victories, with his most recent coming in a sweep of the Fall Brawl III at Nebraska’s I-80 Speedway. The win was worth $61,150 and is the biggest payday of Johnson’s career. It is also the largest payday in the history of the American Sprint Car Series. Wayne has also recorded 186 top-fives’, and 272 top-tens’.

Mark Smith is the King of the 360's

TAMPA, Fla. (February 21, 2015) Incredible doesn't being to describe the slide job festival that took place with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real in the 17th annual King of the 360's and 14th annual Ronald Laney Memorial as Pennsylvania's Mark Smith claimed the evening's $10,000 bounty in his second start.

"This is probably one of the biggest of my career. Next to winning an Outlaw show in the Prelim night at the National Open, this one ranks right up there," said Smith when asked what winning the Ronald Laney Memorial meant to him. "We ran third the first night, second the second night; we had to win. We couldn't go home fourth or fifth so this was it."

Asked about being challenged for the lead, Smith replied, "We kept having those short runs and I just need to get heat in my tire. I knew once I got my tires hot, it would lock down and I could go anywhere I wanted. I just needed to be patient and wait on my car and hopefully, it would go green long enough. When it did, it was all over from there."

With the lead exchanged over and over at both ends of the East Bay Raceway Park, Smith opened the 40 lap affair from the outside of the front row. Going slide for slide with Brad Loyet the first two laps, Smith slowly distanced himself from the Vacuworx No. 05.

Jumping to third from sixth on Lap 3, Aaron Reutzel began tracking down Loyet for the runner-up spot with both starting to run down Smith who wasted no time catching the tail of the field.

Slowed on Lap 10, the caution displayed again on Lap 12 and 13.

With slower cars out of the mix among the top-three, the restart on Lap 13 saw Smith and Loyet charge low, leaving the cushion wide open for Aaron Reutzel. Running the boards into the first turns, the B.C. Funds No. 87 came out leading into the third turn, only to have Smith pull the slide job exiting turn-four. Returning the favor in the next corner, Reutzel was hooked on the cushion.

Approaching the tail of the field on Lap 18, Reutzel's advantage began to wane. Stalking the No. 87, Smith closed the gap by Lap 20; taking the race lead three laps later.

While Smith set sail, the race for second took hold with Johnny Herrera coming from seventh. Exchanging sliders, Herrera's night nearly ended in the closing laps when the MVT No. 45x plowed through the cushion in turns three and four, riding the wall all the way to the front straight-a-way.

While Herrera was able to recover, the bobble was enough to allow Reutzel to get away for second.

"We were really good in the beginning," said Reutzel. "I was just biding my time and taking it easy, but that one restart when Covington slid me, I figured that was a good time to get going and when I needed to go, we were plenty fast. It was just, racing a car like his [Mark], they've been fast all week, and it was a matter of who got through traffic better and they did their job."

Running with a full head of steam from seventh, Herrera was asked if he felt like he had a shot at the win.

"I really felt like I did. We started seventh and I lost some spots on the start. My fault, I just didn't get a good start but we rallied back and made a good run and got rolling really good until I tried to knock the wall down," chuckled Herrera. "We had a great car, finished third and I'm looking forward to more of these."

Brad Loyet would end up fourth after leading the opening lap with Terry McCarl grabbing fifth in his 15th King of the 360's feature start.

Jason Sides climbed from ninth to sixth with Tony Bruce, Jr. seventh. Greg Hodnett slipped from fifth to eighth with Jeff Swindell and Chad Kemenah completing the top-ten.

Running through six Qualifiers, wins went to Johnny Herrera, Jason Sides, Matt Kurtz, Chad Kemenah, Greg Wilson, and Tony Bruce, Jr. A pair of C-Features went to Hud Horton and Brad Greer. B-Features were topped by A.J. Maddox and Wayne Johnson.

Jason Sides Wires Night Two of the Ronald Laney Memorial

TAMPA, Fla. (February 20, 2015) Round two of the 17th annual King of the 360's and 14th Ronald Laney Memorial saw Tennessee's Jason Sides lead flag-to-flag at East Bay Raceway Park with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real.

Drawing the pole in the night's 25-lap feature event, the 2002 Ronald Laney Memorial winner was pressured on the highline by Mark Smith on the opening lap, but was able to keep the Pennsylvania ace at bay.

"The bottom was the place to be, but Mark had a pretty good start there. I spun the tires, and may have got into him a little bit there, but that was the key to the whole race was getting a good start and not making any mistakes."

Finding traffic by the Lap 5, Sides found clear racetrack two laps later as Thomas Kennedy spun to a stop in the fourth turn. Pulling away from Smith on the restart, it didn't take long to again find the back of the field.

Pacing around traffic, Sides didn't lose his edge, crossing 5.204 seconds ahead of Mark Smith for his first preliminary night victory in the King of the 360's.

Putting together a pair of podium finishes, Smith is locked into Saturday's $10,000 to win feature event. Smith alluded to that in his interview, "I could have maybe tried a little harder to roll Jason there at the beginning on the outside because I wasn't bad there; but I just had too much to lose tomorrow, so I figured I just drop in and ride it out and hopefully we can get this track better for tomorrow."

Improving one spot from Thursday night, Brad Loyet grabbed the final podium step, and in doing so, also put himself directly into Saturday A-Feature event, "We'll see what happens here. We just need to go for it tomorrow. Being locked into the show, we'll be in good position."

Jeff Swindell crossed fourth with Thursday night's winner, Aaron Reutzel coming from 10th to fifth to earn high points between the two prelim nights.

Despite the narrow racing groove, Greg Hodnett blazed a path from 22nd to sixth. Tony Bruce, Jr. seventh with Wayne Johnson, Terry McCarl, and Johnny Herrera completing the top-ten.

With preliminary nights in the books, the top-six are locked into Saturday's 40-lap, $10,000 to win A-Feature. Aaron Reutzel, Mark Smith, Brad Loyet, Jeff Swindell, Terry McCarl, and Greg Hodnett will re-draw for their starting positions inside the first three rows.

With the staggering number of cars, Saturday's forma will have Heats lined up by their accumulated point totals. Six (6) Heat Races will be contested with the top 10 in passing points making up positions 7-16 in the A-Feature. Heat Races will be 10 laps.

The remainder will fall into three B-Features, going 15 laps, taking the top two from each to make up positions 17-22.

Aaron Reutzel Spectacular in 14th Annual Laney Memorial Opener

TAMPA, Fla. (February 19, 2015) The start to the 2015 season for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real opened with a bang as Aaron Reutzel stormed to victory on night one of the 14th annual Ronald Laney Memorial, and 17th King of the 360's at East Bay Raceway Park.

Jumping from the top of this B.C. Funds No. 87, Reutzel paid high honors to the track crew, "What a hell of a racetrack. Wow, there are no words for that racetrack. It was just awesome up there bouncing the fence. That was unreal."

Rolling to second on Lap 5 from 8th, Reutzel set sights on Mark Smith who grabbed the lead the previous lap from Tampa's A.J. Maddox. Edging Smith on Lap 7, the pair went slide for slide on Lap 8; exchange the point three times before the caution waved for Chad Kemenah.

Two takes on the restart, Reutzel had to play catch up as Smith distanced himself from the No. 87. Losing ground again following a Lap 10 caution for Wayne Johnson, whose night ended after contact with the wall, the Clute, Texas driver commented on the mid-race stall, "I don't know what happened. I knew our car was fast enough to win but it got so tight there. I don't know if I had a tire going down or what but it took me at least five laps to get going. McCarl past me, then I started reeling McCarl back in and we were both able to get around the No. 1, but McCarl was good enough he could run anywhere he wanted so I knew he was going to be tough to beat but luckily he hit the bottom in lapped traffic and left me the top and that was all she wrote."

The win is Aaron's first at East Bay Raceway Park, and fifth with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Crossing second, Iowa's Terry McCarl charged from 17th in the Snowplow.com No. 24, "It was a really tricky racetrack, but that's what we love about East Bay. It's my favorite track down here in Florida. There are so many different variables going on. It's a chess game out there. You know Mark got out there felling good, then the track changed and we found a spot, then that changed."

In talking about the track surface, Terry commented that the track was similar to the night Ronald Laney won the King of the 360's.

"I was telling the guys earlier on Racinboys, this was just like the racetrack when Ronald won this deal. He came from way back to the front and it just got really weird. I think he back up at the beginning and at the end just drove around us like we were tied to a stump."

Battling with McCarl throughout the closing laps, Pennsylvania's Mark Smith completed the evening's podium.

"It was a pretty nice race. I just couldn't get my car to turn in the center," commented Smith. "I was really, really, good as long as it would turn but the longer I went, the tighter it got and just couldn't get it the way I wanted but we had a hell of a race there."

Brad Loyet from fourteenth snagged fourth with Seth Bergman completing the top-five after starting twelfth.

Johnny Herrera was the night's Hard Charger, coming from 22nd to 6th with Jeff Swindell crossing seventh. Greg Hodnet from 20th to 8th, Matt Covington 9th from 19th, and Ohio's Danny Smith completed the top-ten.

With 67 drivers drawing in, 9 Heat Races took place with Terry Gray, Danny Martin, Jr., Wayne Johnson, Mark Smith, Brad Loyet, Aaron Reutzel, Jeff Swindell, A.J. Maddox, and Lou Kennedy, Jr. each taking wins. Three B-Features went to Terry McCarl, Matt Kurtz, and Matt Covington. Provisionals based on owner points from 2014 where used by Tony Bruce, Jr. and Lane Whittington.

Herrera Changing Things Up For 2015 Lucas Oil ASCS Campaign

TULSA, Okla. (February 11, 2015) For Johnny Herrera, the 2015 season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real will be one of change. For starters, the Albuquerque, New Mexico resident will base his team out of Oklahoma. Secondly, the coming season marks the first time that Herrera will operate as a team owner/driver.

"My team has always been a family thing. Even when I didn't race for my Mom and Dad, they still owned a car and raced. They've always been involved in my racing, and will still be involved this year but they're going to take more of a back seat," said Herrera about his move to being the primary owner of his Mesilla Valley Transportation / Smiley's Racing Products No. 45x Maxim.

Asked is the idea of being a full car owner, rather than partial, has changed is approach to racing, Herrera replied, "It's no different than when you drive for somebody, or have a sponsor that wants you to perform night in, and night out. Of course now I'll have to watch closer where I spend money, but I've always tried to take care of my equipment like it was my own, no matter who's paying the bill. We're looking forward to this year. We have two seconds and two fourths in the points, so maybe this year we can get that first."

Along with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour, Herrera has plans for other events as well, "With the National Tour scheduled, we're going to pick up a few other select shows. We'll do a few 410cid events like Devil's Bowl, Salina Highbanks, and of course Knoxville and we'll probably do a few shows with the ASCS Red River Region. Money permitting of course."

Stepping away from all black cars, Herrera's 2015 mount will combined red into the chassis with the body and wing panels remaining black. The wing bellies will be white, "I want a clean look on this year's car and it's a little old school for me. I've also gone back to my polished Weld Wheels with gold centers."

With cars in the final stages of production, Herrera 2015 season marks the 30th year the New Mexico racing veteran has been behind the wheel of a Sprint Car.

Tony Bruce, Jr. Seeks Improvement in 2015 Lucas Oil ASCS Campaign

TULSA, Okla. (February 4, 2015) The American Sprint Car Series' 24th year of promoting dirt track races will be the eighth year of competition for Tony Bruce, Jr with the Oklahoma based series.

Picking up three Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real feature wins in 2014, the Liberal, Kansas driver was pleased with the overall setup of his Team One8 program, but not the performance of a seventh place finish in the overall point standings.

"I think I crashed more last year than I've crashed in my entire career," said Bruce.

Asked about difference in his program from 2014 to 2015, Bruce replied, "We didn't really change anything on the car. The only thing we had a problem with was finishing races, especially when we were running up front so hopefully that changes. We'll see what happens. The goal really is to just be competitive every night. Like I said, last year I felt like we had a great car night in and night out, but we just seemed to find ourselves on the back of a Wrecker. "

With Moss Engines under the bonnet of the Oil Medics / Lubbock Wrecker No. 18 again in 2015, Bruce will also keep his mixture of Ford and Chevrolet power plants in play with track size serving as a primary variable on which sees action.

Once again taking on the part of racer and promoter, Bruce elaborated on his events for 2015.

"The Rock N' Roll 50, Eagle Nationals, and Kansas City Classic with Scott Traylor at Racinboys.com will be our marquee events this season. The Rock N' Roll 50 has always been a great event for us and so has the Eagle Nationals."

Since earning the title of "Brodix Rookie of the Year" in 2005, Tony Bruce, Jr. has amassed 13 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature wins in 280 starts with 73 top-fives' and 156 top-ten finishes. Bruce has also earned 16 ASCS Regional victories.

Jeff Swindell Anxious For Busy 2015 Season

TULSA, Okla. (February 3, 2015) - Jeff Swindell has a lot on his plate in 2015. Gaining momentum during the later part of the 2014 racing season, Swindell's new line of electronic bleeders has been approved by every major open wheel organization, giving the Tennessee veteran plenty to focus on when he's not behind the wheel of the H&H Container Services No. 94.

"There's a lot of variables with what's going on this year, and this new bleeder has a lot of bearing on how much time that takes off my hands in regards to travel but we are going to take off running with the ASCS this year," commented Swindell.

Anticipating a busy off-season, Swindell began preparing for 2015 before the end of the 2014 racing season.

"We're ready to go. We had a fresh racecar for the season finale last year so that's the one we're starting off with. Engines are all in good shape with Charlie Fisher, plus we're working on some sponsorship deals so right now, everything is looking good."

Finishing a career best runner-up in the National Tour standings in 2014, Swindell's season consisted of three wins along with 15 top-fives' and 27 top-tens' which put Jeff only 15 points behind at the final checkered flag of the season.

Looking ahead to Florida in a couple weeks, Swindell carries a long history into the Tampa's East Bay Raceway Park, "I've never turned a lap at Ocala, but my East Bay experience dates back to all the non-wing stuff with the Outlaws when they first started." With a chuckle, Swindell added, "that was a long time ago."

Bringing little changes on the mechanical side of the J&J Chassis / Pearson Farms No. 94, the crew will also remain intact with Curtis Davis and Asa Swindell working the pits. Overall, Jeff Swindell has made the call in 133 Lucas Oil ASCS A-Feature events with 14 victories along with 55 top-five, and 89 top-ten finishes.

Blake Hahn Set For Sophomore Year with Lucas Oil ASCS

TULSA, Okla. (February 2, 2015) Blake Hahn's rookie season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real was filled with success, but was also filled with unforeseen obstacles.

"It was a long hard year, but you can't focus on that," said Hahn when asked about his rookie season. "You just need to keep your head up and focus on what's ahead because really, it'll all work out in the end. We had some great finishes and learned a lot so there were more positives than anything last year."

Finishing tenth in tour standings, the 2014 Brodix Rookie of the Year rolled out 10 top-ten finishes as well as four top-fives in 32 feature starts.

Reassessing his program during the off-season, one aspect that will not change is personnel as father, Tom Hahn, and crew member, Dalton Seigler, will again accompany Blake on the road this season. Equipment on the other hand will see several changes.

"We had been running an '06 Big Max, and it's a great car, but we made the decision to switch to JR1 Chassis this season. Jerry [Russell] came to us with an offer that we really couldn't pass up and with the way his cars have performed, I feel good about the change."

Moving to Penske shocks on the Speedway Vending / CSR Garage No. 52 as well, Hahn is looking at the big picture and putting together a full season, keeping the idea of consistency at the forefront of his team, "We're just looking to make good laps every time we hit the track and above all, have fun. A top-five in points would be nice, but we are focused on putting an entire season together."

Keeping with Wesmar power for the 2015 season, Hahn will take in as many races as the team can handle with a schedule of nearly 65 dates between ASCS National and Regional competition.

Overall, Blake Hahn has competed in 47 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour feature events with six top-fives' and 16 top-tens' to his credit. Starting in ASCS regional competition in 2012, Hahn has earned four regional victories.

The 2015 season for the Lucas Oil ASCS presented by MAVTV American Real begins at East Bay Raceway Park with the 14th annual Ronald Laney Memorial, happening February 19, 20, and 21. The following weekend will see the series make their first appearance at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla.
