HOLYOKE, Colo. (July 21) – Ryan Gaylord’s journey to victory lane Monday night at Phillips County Raceway got its start two nights before in the tech area at Calhan. “I had been struggling and they found the left side wheelbase was way off at Calhan,” Gaylord explained after his $1,000 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature win in the Precise Racing Products BST show at Holyoke. “That was a blessing in disguise because it really helped us turn the car around.” Gaylord ran seventh at El Paso County Speedway and worked out some kinks with a mid-pack finish Sunday at Thomas County Speedway. He wrapped up the four-night BST swing with his first feature win of the season. “We needed this one. It seems like we’ve been getting a lot of seconds,” Gaylord said. “My brother Tripp was crewing for Kenny Wallace, too, and made the changes to my car and told me just to worry about driving.” After drawing the outside row one start, Gaylord stayed on the higher line and eventually caught Ken [Read More]
COLBY, Kan. (July 20) – A rare visit to a favorite speedplant resulted in a second Precise Racing Products BST win in three nights for John Hansen. Hansen started ninth and was in the lead for good by the 10th circuit in the Sunday night IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified 25-lapper at Thomas County Speedway. The win paid $1,000. “We’ve won a few fair specials here the last couple years. Thomas County is definitely a favorite track, we just don’t get here enough,” Hansen said. “The track was really racy. There was plenty of room to race on the high side and that’s where a lot of the passing was done.” Up to third by lap eight, Hansen took charge after the ensuing restart. One more caution slowed action over the last half of the race as Hansen eased away to take the checkers ahead of Jeremy Frenier, Scott Drake, Saturday winner Ken Schrader and Eddie Belec. The series win was Hansen’s third of the season. Angel Munoz topped the Addiction Chassis BST Series headliner [Read More]
LAMAR, Colo. (July 18) – John Hansen opened with a flag to flag run in the opener of a four-night Precise Racing BST Series trek. The Friday IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified checkers came at Lamar Speedway, paid $1,000 and put Hansen on the ballot for the 2015 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. “We’ve been successful at Lamar before although this time wasn’t as peaceful,” Hansen said following a 25-lapper that saw its share of cautions. “Brady (Coen) pressured me the whole race and pulled alongside a couple times.” Coen, Jeremy Frenier, Eddie Belec and Ryan Gaylord rounded out the top five. Hansen had drawn the pole start and maintained the lead through multiple yellows from the preferred lower line. Once into lapped traffic, he went higher up on the oval to stay ahead of the pack. Kelly Yutterman won the Addiction Chassis BST Series feature for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars. Gregory Gutt was second and Lloyd Meeske third. Chad Dolan was the winner for the third time in as many Leary Racing Products BST Series [Read More]
