Richards to Compete Full-Time in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series

ST. MARYS, OHIO (Dec. 6, 2016) - Four-Time World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series Champion Josh Richards who joined forces with Best Performance Motorsports last month, announced today that he will run full-time in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the 2017 season.

Though Richards has chased championships under the World of Outlaws banner for his entire career, the 28-year-old driver has 12 Lucas Oil Series wins to his credit, six of which came this season, including the prestigious Pittsburgher 100.

"I've run several Lucas Oil (Late Model Dirt Series) races over the years," explained Richards. "It's a great Series with a professional staff. I'm excited to be able to race in some different regions of the country and on some tracks I've never been to before."

In addition to his full slate of Lucas Oil events, Richards plans to run additional races when the schedule allows.

The Shinnston, W.Va. native brings over a decade of racing experience to the Ohio-based team. With four championships under his belt, Richards has amassed more than 150 super dirt late model wins over multiple racing Series and has earned more than 350 top-five finishes and nearly 500 top-10 finishes over his short-career.

"I'm thrilled to join the Best Performance Motorsports team," exclaimed Richards.  "They are one of the top teams in the industry and I'm looking forward to starting this new path in my career."

Richards will work alongside veteran crew chief and friend Randall Edwards, something the duo is looking forward to.

"I've known Randall (Edwards) for many years," said Richards. "I've always wanted the opportunity to work with him. He's been around the sport for a long time and I know his knowledge will be beneficial."

"I met Josh (Richards) when he was just a kid," explained Edwards. "I've watched him grow and mature over the years and I'm really looking forward to working with such a talented driver. He's a proven winner and I know he will bring that same winning attitude to our team this season."

The defending World of Outlaws Champion will continue to run a Rocket Chassis and will still sport his iconic No. 1 on his new Best Performance Motorsports machine.

LUCAS OIL LATE MODELS, ALL STAR SPRINTS & SUPER DIRTCAR BIG-BLOCK MOD SERIES HIGHLIGHT NATIONAL EVENTS IN 2017 AT SHARON; 4 DIVISIONS TO BE FEATURED IN SATURDAY NIGHT WEEKLY "STEEL VALLEY THUNDER" PROGRAM

By Mike Leone

Hartford, OH November 29, 2016 While the 2017 racing season is still well over four months away, Sharon Speedway management has been busy making preparations for the 88th anniversary season. All of the major events scheduled in 2016 will return with some additional events in the works. The weekly Saturday night "Steel Valley Thunder" program has been reduced from six divisions down to four for the 2017 season.

After the 2016 season is officially closed out with the awards banquet and dinner on Saturday, February 25 at Yankee Lake (OH) Ballroom, all eyes will shift to 2017 with the season opener on Friday, April 21 as the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will make their inaugural visit to Sharon in a $10,000 to-win event. After much anticipation, the 2016 event was rained out.

Tony Stewart's Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions have already been booked for two events. The 35th annual Ohio Speedweek will make a stop on Tuesday, June 20 for $5,000 to-win, and then the All Stars will return for the third consecutive year to sanction the ninth annual "Lou Blaney Memorial" on Saturday, July 8.

The Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series will return once again on Thursday, July 20 for a $6,000 to-win event. A huge field of 51 ground-pounders invaded the Hartford, Ohio 3/8-mile oval this past season for the first time since 1983 on the old half-mile track. Jimmy Phelps will look to defend his 2016 victory.

Advanced tickets will go on sale soon for these events. Several other events with regional touring series and non-sanctioned Sprint Car events will also be held. The exact date of September's "Apple Festival Nationals" hasn't been set, and look for a reformatted event. Speaking of the "Apple Festival Nationals", the five rained out 2016 feature events will be made up throughout the spring of 2017 with the exact dates announced with the release of the 2017 schedule.

The weekly Saturday night "Steel Valley Thunder" program will get underway on Saturday, April 29 and will feature the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Big-Block Modifieds, Lyden/Red Line Oil RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars, and the HTMA/Precise Racing Products Econo Mods. Due to declining car counts, the (E) Modifieds and Mini Stocks will not be part of the weekly program. The Modifieds are slated to make monthly appearances.

Keep an eye on social media and our website for 2016 banquet ticket sales, 2017 rules, special event advance ticket sales, season reserved pit parking spots, car registration, and more.

Eric Wells Earns $10,000 Payday in SNBS Fall Classic at Ponderosa Speedway

By Michael Despain

JUNCTION CITY, Ky. - November 5, 2016 - The Southern Nationals Bonus Series kicked off the month of November at Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City, KY on Saturday for the 26th Annual Fall Classic presented by Caton Industrial Painting and Eric Wells of Hazard, KY would be in the spotlight at the end of the event, having earned a $10,000 payday and his second career win in the track's Fall Classic event. This would mark Wells' first-career victory on the tour and his second personal victory of the season.

Wells would be the dominant car at the event as he would be the FK Rod Ends top qualifier, led all ten laps in winning his qualifying heat, and would cap the event off by leading all 50 circuits of the main event. The victory for Wells was his first career win with the tour and would aboard the David Wells owned Wells Motorsports/Convenient Lube/Penske Shocks sponsored #18 Longhorn Chassis powered by a Cornett Race Engine.

Wells would take the lead at the start of the 50 lap, $10,000 to win Southern Nationals Bonus Series sanctioned 26th Annual Fall Classic presented by Caton Industrial Painting, with Dave Hess, Jr. and Jason Welshan giving chase. Welshan would go second on lap 6 and give chase to Wells, who began working slower traffic on lap 9. Wells would weave his way in and out of heavy traffic and maintain a comfortable margin and would get clear race track when the caution waved on lap 19 for a slowed Justin Rattliff in turn two.

Back underway, Wells would again set a torrid pace out front, while Welshan would now get pressure from Kent Robinson and Steve Francis for the second position. While Wells again pulled away from the field, Robinson and Francis would duel for third until the caution waved again on lap 31 when Chris Ferguson's mount would slow on the backchute. This restart would see Robinson motor around Welshan for the runner-up position and close slightly on Wells for the lead, but Wells would turn the wick up on his machine when he started working slower traffic on lap 41. Wells would begin to drive off from Robinson until one final caution waved on lap 46 for a stopped Jason Jamison in turn two.

The final restart would see Wells again shoot away from the competition and see the checkered flag first. Robinson and Welshan would settle for the remaining podium finishing positions with their second and third place finishes respectively, while Donald McIntosh and Steve Francis completed the top five. The remainder of the top ten would be led by 18th starting Ray Cook, followed by Jackie Boggs, Chris Carpenter, Billy Moyer, Jr., and Tim Dohm.

On Friday Night during the non-points Southern Nationals Bonus Series-sanctioned 16th Annual Hugh "Junebug" Rowland Memorial feature, Tim Dohm of Cross Lanes, W.V. scored his first win at the track notching the $3,000 payday over Eric Wells, Corey Conley, Steve Francis and Chris Ferguson.
