  • Joel Watson ends season with Bob & Jackie Vogt Memorial win!

    Airgood, Blackshear, Deutsch, and Downes also end season with wins!

    Conneaut, OH (September 1, 2017): Bob and Jackie Vogt were among the most popular figures in the history of Raceway 7. Since their passing (Bob in 2003, and Jackie in 2015) an E-Mod special has been run in their honor each summer. At the end of the thirty-lap feature it was Joel Watson claiming the win and the Bonnell’s Collision Service E-Mod championship, win number four in his title defense, while second place finisher Gary Eicher captured the champion’s mantle.

    In other divisions Dave Airgood finished his Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Model season with his fifth win of the season while Kyle Zimmerman claimed the championship with a third-place run. Zimmerman had also won the title in 2011. Brandon Blackshear finished 2017 the same as he started it back in May, standing in the Bonnell’s Auto Group Winner’s Circle. Steve Haefke successfully defended his points championship, earning his second consecutive title. Tim Deutsch won his third feature of the season in the Campbell’s Mini Storage Street Stock finale while Jimmy Kennerknecht won the championship, his first since at Raceway 7. Zach Downes collected his fourth consecutive Sunnyside Farm Transit Mini Stock feature win and sixth of the year in six appearances! With one win and steady top five finishes, Joe Campbell collected the champion’s rewards, winning the title in the Season points battle for the class, his first-ever championship.

    Dave Airgood, a four time winner in 2017, and Chad Sines brought the Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Models to green with Alan Dellinger coming to second after a lap one restart due to a spin by Mike Bambarger. Two more laps were in with Airgood and Dellinger again leading the way when Sines spun. Ed Bolyard spun for the next yellow, with four laps completed. Airgood, Dellinger, Breyton Santee, points leader Kyle Zimmerman, and Darrell Bossard brought the race back to green. Zimmerman came to third at six complete, padding his points lead over Bossard. Chad Wright was up to fourth at this point. At halfway Bossard was challenging Santee for fifth, gaining the spot at eleven. Coming out of turn two on lap thirteen Bambarger slowed to a stop as the leaders were putting him a lap down. At fourteen complete Wright was third when Dylan Goodman spun in turn two. Wright immediately came to second when green again flew. With white in the air Sines again spun, setting a one-lap race for the win. Airgood then led the final lap of the season for the victory, his fifth of the year with Wright second, and Zimmerman third, gaining the points championship. Dellinger was fourth with Bossard fifth.

    Dillon Speer and Ed Haylett were on the front row for the final Sunnyside Farms Transit Mini Stock season feature with Speer leading the way from the drop of the green. At three laps complete Zoey Gill came to a halt in turn two, slowing the race under yellow. Speer, Haylett, points leader Joe Campbell, 2016 champion Jason Easler, and five time winner Zach Downes brought the field back to green. Campbell came to second behind Speer at green but Downes displaced him for the spot at the end of the lap, then to the lead at five compete. At halfway Downes led with Speer back to second, Easler third, Campbell slipped back to fourth, and Shane Shook up to fifth. Caution again flew with the white flag flying when Speer spun in turn three. For the one-lap run to the checkers it was Downes, Easler, Shook, Campbell, and Brad Cole. That was the finish with Campbell being crowned the points champion. Easler was penalized two positions at the finish for “jumping a start”, making the top five officially Downes, Shook, Campbell, Easler, and Cole.

    Joel Watson and Gary Eicher brought the 30-lap Bob and Jackie Vogt Memorial for the Bonnell Collision Service E-Mods to green with Watson jumping out to a big lead on lap one. Eicher was second with Russ Dunn and Brian Ruhlman fighting over third at three laps into the event. Brent Rhebergen was up to fifth at five laps complete. At ten laps the front five were the same with Watson closing in on the rear of the field. At twelve laps, Watson was lapping the back markers. At twenty laps Eicher caught Watson and was battling for the lead on m heavy traffic. Watson then pulled back out to a four length lead with five laps remaining. The caution flew when Josh Ferry and Dan McDonald got together and spun in turn four at lap 25. For the final five laps it was Joel Watson, Gary Eicher, Brian Ruhlman, Russ Dunn, and Brent Rhebergen. On the first lap under green Dunn came to third, then Zimmer came to fifth at 27 complete. When the checkers fell on the race it was Watson, Eicher, Dunn, Zimmer, and Rhebergen as Ruhlman faded to seventh on the final lap. Jeremy Double collected the Close Racing Supply Hard Charger award for his tenth place finish and a new tire paid to the tenth finisher (position randomly drawn at the end of the event), also courtesy of Close Racing Supply.

    Ryan Moyer and Tim Deutsch brought the Campbell’s Mini Storage Street Stocks to green with Moyer leading at the end of one. Garrett Calvert came to third at the end of two with Jimmy Kennerknecht fourth and Chris McGuire fifth. Jamie Duncan, Jarod Larson, and Tony Bruno spun in turn two at four complete for the first caution but Larson kept moving, so was not charged with the caution. Calvert got to second at the restart with Chris McGuire joining the battle but suffering a flat left front in the scuffle for the spot. On lap ten Deutsch came to the lead as Rich Chess Jr spun in turn two. With five remaining it was Deutsch, Moyer, Calvert, Kennerknecht, and Stajnrajh. Kennerknecht got to third at the start, then at eleven laps Stajnrajh spun in turn four for yet another caution. With two to go McGuire spun in turn two, ending his hampered run. Deutsch pulled away over the final laps with Kennerknecht next to Moyer at the white flag but falling in behind Deutsch on the final lap. Mike Clark was fourth with Mike Horton fifth. Kennerknecht was crowned the champion, his first championship since 2003 at Little Valley, NY.

    Mitchell Wright and Devin Henry started the Bonnell’s Auto Sales season finale up front. In the tightest points battle of the season Tyler Frankenberry was five points behind Steve Haefke for the lead with Brandon Blackshear only thirteen points from first. At green Blackshear got by Wright but yellow flew at one complete when Rich Chess Sr spun. Again at the end of two Chess spun and then was sent to pit for a fuel leak. He was able to return to the race before it was resumed with the leak stopped. Nate Young, who had also spun into the fence in turn three, was able to return under the caution. Devin Henry spun at four laps with Matt Alexander also spinning. Henry headed pitside under the caution. Casey Harmon stopped in turn four at six laps, then pulled to the pit after yellow was shown. Fourth-running Justin Sax spun, collecting Matt Alexander. At eight Sax, Gary Murphy, and Lee Patrick spun in turn four but Murphy kept moving so kept his spot. Blackshear, Haefke, Zack Lenart, and Frankenberry, were the top four for the green with seven to go. Blackshear then opened his lead after green with Haefke second when Sax again spun, this time in turn two, his third of the event, sending him to the pit. With five to go Wright spun down the front straight into the infield. Wright tried to rejoin the field but mechanical ails brought him to a stop before green could be restored, needing towed from the event. This restart had Blackshear leading defending champion Haefke, Lenart, Frankenberry, and Gary Murphy. At the checkers it was the same order and with his second place finish Haefke successfully defended his title defense, his second championship in a row.

  • Busy night planned to end season at Raceway 7!

    Bob & Jackie Vogt Memorial E-Mod special, champions to be crowned, fireworks!

    Conneaut, OH (August 30, 2017): The 2017 season will end with a bang at Raceway 7 when Gibson Fireworks will put on a huge display during the night when season champions are crowned. None of the five divisions have had a champion clinch the title this season so every point in every heat and every feature will take on added importance. All this for a night of racing at the regular admission price!

    Bob Vogt was a long-time competitor at Raceway 7 and was a Late Model class champion. Jackie Vogt was a scorer at the track for many years. Bob succumbed to cancer in 2003 while Jackie passed away in 2015. Both were loved and respected by fans, drivers, and crews. Their son, Bob Jr, competes in the Bonnell’s Auto Group Economod class and granddaughter Alexis Vogt competes in the Sunnyside Farms Transit Inc Mini-Stocks.

    The Bonnell Collision Center E-Mods will have a packed night of racing with the richest payout of the year for the class. The advertised winner’s purse has increased from $1000 to $2000 with the infusion of extra cash from Cashen Ready Mix, The Home Tavern, and Mike Stoneman from Hide-a-Ways Lake Campgrounds. Cashen Ready Mix and HBR Trucks (Rick Pratschler) have added to the purse throughout the field so that the last-place finisher will receive $150. The Home Tavern is also donating $200 to be awarded to a random finisher (to be drawn by the feature winner) from sixth to 24th place. In addition, Joel Smith of Close Racing Supply is donating a $100 certificate to the “Hard Charger” and a tire for the winner! Heat and dash winners will also receive receive cash awards as follows: Heat 1: Tregler Race Engines, Heat 2: 955 Automotive, Heat 3: Johnson Gearing, Dash 1: AMSOIL by Gary and Bonnie Neubauer, Dash 2: McDonald Meats. Each preliminary race will pay $100 to the winners thanks to the preceding sponsors.

    A group time-trial format will be followed with the groups set by a pill-draw. Each group will time-trial against each other to set the heat race line-ups. The top two finishers of each heat will compete in the first dash, which will set positions one through six in the feature with the third and fourth place finishers in each heat starting seventh through twelfth in the feature line up. The thirteenth through twenty fourth spots will be filled from the fifth on back in the heats. For cars not qualifying for the feature, $50 in tow money will be paid. Dan Davies was the 2016 winner of this event. Percy McDonald won the inaugural running of the memorial in 2015 by 1/1000 of a second over Dan Davies, the closest finish in Raceway 7 history!

    Not lost in the shuffle is the season championship points battle! Up front, Gary Eicher, a three-time feature winner this season, leads the points championship battle over defending champion Joel Watson and last week’s winner, Troy Johnson, locked in a tie for second, by only seventeen points. Fourth is Ken Zimmer, a two time winner, with Mike Kinney filling out the top five. Only 39 markers separate the top four, so going into the final event of the season, the title is up for grabs along with the big purse. Jeremy Double also has a feature win this season, that coming on opening night.

    The other four classes will also be in competition with the Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Models showing former champion Kyle Zimmerman leading Darrell Bossard by nineteen points. Zimmerman has a single feature win while Bossard has not yet gone to Victory Lane. Dave Airgood, a three-time winner, is third with Alan Dellinger fourth, and defending champion Chad Wright rounding out the top five. Wright has two wins this season. June 2nd winner Chris Withers is currently seventh in points, behind Wendall Pinckney, not yet a winner this season.

    The Bonnell Auto Group Economods championship race is extremely tight with Steve Haefke holding a narrow five-point lead over Tyler Frankenberry. Haefke has two wins this summer while Frankenberry has two. Opening night winner Brandon Blackshear is third, just six more points out of second! Fourth is Eric Reinwald with Mitchell Wright fifth. Each of the top five has at least one feature win this season. Gary Miller also collected a feature win, his first-ever at Raceway 7, on August 18.

    Jimmy Kennerknecht has a solid 46-point lead over Don McGuire in the Campbell Mini Storage Street Stock championship tilt. Kennerknecht has three wins, including last Friday while McGuire has not yet visited the Winner’s Circle. Garrett Calvert is third, only ten points out of second. Calvert seems to be on the cusp of a win, perhaps will get that elusive first trip to Victory Lane this week. Jamie Duncan, another 105 points back, also has not won a feature in ’17, but getting closer, is fourth in the standings, with Anthony Marotto, also without a win, fifth. Tim Deutsch has two wins and is sixth, only six markers away from fifth. Bobby Whitling, Mike Miller, Chris McGuire, and 2016 champion Shaun Fawcett each have one win.

    Joe Campbell, with one feature win, has a solid 40 point edge in the Sunnyside Farm Transit Mini Stock standings over Bill Fuchs, who has not yet won this summer. Defending champion Jason Easler, with one win, currently sits third another 27 points back. Zach Downes, with five wins in five visits, is fourth, another 54 points behind Easler. Fifth is Jim Jones, as yet winless at Raceway 7 in ’17. Former champions Dale Fraschetti and Bud Sergeff also each have one win.

  • Airgood twice as good at Raceway 7!

    Eicher, Frankenberry, Kennerknecht, Troy Johnson, and Downes also score wins!

    Conneaut, OH (August 25, 2017): On a beautiful late summer day with bright blue skies double features were run for both the Evergreen Lake Park Crate Late Models and the Bonnell Collision Service E-Mods ran “make-up” features for events rained out on June 16 and May 19 respectably. Dave Airgood collected his third win of the season and Troy Johnson got his first win of the season in the Bonnell’s Collision Center E-Mod “makeup”. Then a full regular card of racing was presented. In the first Bonnell Auto Group Economod heat Mark Titus got sideways at the end of the back straight and executed a complete roll. He was OK but needed towed pitside by two wreckers. Besides Airgood’s double Gary Eicher scored his third Bonnell’s Collision Service E-Mod win of the year while Jimmy Kennerknecht scored his third win of the season in the Campbell’s Mini Storage Street Stock feature. Tyler Frankenberry also got his third win of the year in the Bonnell’s Auto Sales Economods. In the Sunnyside Farm Transit Mini Stock finale it was Zach Downs winning his fifth feature of the season in his fifth appearance of the season.

    The first feature on the track was the Evergreen Lake Park Campground Crate Late Models feature originally scheduled for June 16th with Darrell Bossard and Breyton Santee on the front row. Bossard took off with the early lead over Santee and Dave Airgood. At eight laps in Airgood got next to Santee on the back stretch but then “half-spun” in turn four. At halfway Bossard was still extending his lead over Santee with Airgood again looking to the inside of Santee. A lap past halfway Ed Bolyard spun in turn two, bringing the race under caution for the first time and eliminating Bossard’s lead. In turn one after green, points leader Kyle Zimmerman went high on the track, losing several spots, eventually falling back to thirteenth. At three laps left Airgood was next to Bossard at the line and had a two-length lead a lap later. Airgood went on to his third win of the season over Bossard, Santee, Alan Dellinger, and Wendall Pinckney.

    The May 19th feature for the Bonnell Collision Service E-Mod feature started with Mike Kinney and Troy Johnson on the front row with Kinney taking the immediate lead. Johnson was the leader at the end of three with Gary Eicher coming to second a lap later. Ken Zimmer got by Eicher on lap six and started fighting for the front spot. Zimmer got next to the leader every set of turns but Johnson kept pulling back out front on every straight. Zimmer was alongside at nine to go but Johnson led again at twelve compete. At five to go Eicher was trying for second with points leader Joel Watson coming into the mix as Johnson started lengthening his lead. Johnson led Zimmer, Eicher, Watson, and Brent Rhebergen to the checkers. In Victory Lane Johnson noted it was his first Raceway 7 win in several years.

    Brad Cole and Jason Easler brought the Sunnyside Farm Transit Mini Stocks to green with Easler grabbing the immediate lead. By four laps compete Zach Downes was up to fourth from his twelfth spot on the starting grid. At five laps in Scott Gill came to a halt at the pit entrance and yellow was shown. The top five were Easler, Brad Cole, Gary Drake, Zach Downes, and points leader Joe Campbell. At green Campbell came to third but caution was shown for debris on the back straight, the front bumper cover from Downes’ car. At halfway Downes was up to second as Easler was opening his lead. At seven complete Downes had closed the gap and was battling for the lead. At nine laps lapped traffic came into play with Downes taking the top side while Easler took the low side. The moved worked for Downes and he went on to win his fifth of the season over Downes, Kyle Adkins, Dillion Speer, and Campbell.

    Jimmy Kennerknecht and Tony Marotto were the front row for the Campbell’s Mini Storage Street Stock fifteen lap feature. Kennerknecht, a two time winner, took the early lead but a restart was needed when Mike Horton spun in turn three. Again Kennerknecht led from green but Troy Dezarn spun in turn one and was collected hard by Bill Applebee. Applebee headed to the pit while Dezarn needed towed pitside with heavy damage. This time Jared Larson spun in turn three but the leaders finished the lap before the yellow was shown. For the restart it was Kennerknecht, Marotto, Don McGuire, Calvert, and Gary Miller. By three laps complete Tom Deutsch was up to fifth, then got by Calvert at five laps in. At six laps Kennerknecht had a half straight advantage then caution was shown when Gary Miller stopped in turn four then caught fire, causing a red flag to be shown, stopping the race. At this green Don McGuire quickly came to second with Deutsch getting to third with three to go. Garrett Calvert spun in turn four with the white flag flying. The one lap dash to the glory had Kennerknecht, McGuire, Deutsch, Marotto, and Mike Horton leading the way. On the final lap Calvert got back to fifth. It was Kennerknecht’s third win of the season and will extend his points lead with only one week left in the season.

    Steve Haefke and Tyler Frankenberry brought the Bonnell’s Auto Sales Economods to green. Mitchell Wright spun, collecting Eric Reinwald and negating the green. Again Haefke and Reinwald brought the field to green. Frankenberry led lap one looking for his third win of the season. Yellow flew at three laps when Jeff Wick spun at the end of the back straight. At turn two Buzz Seitz went way high, eventually collecting Ashley Rogers, who then also spun. Another lap was complete when Matt Alexander spun in four, again slowing the race. Frankenberry led the way at green with Haefke and Devin Henry side by side for second, Haefke getting the spot. Before the leaders got to the stripe Reinwald spun in turn four. Yet again Frankenberry brought the field back on green over points leader Haefke, Henry, Mitchell Wright, and Brandon Blackshear. Frankenberry continued to build a lead until Nate Young and Jeff Wick spun in turn four at lap nine. With two to go Wick spun at the end of the front straight and Young spun in turn two. At the finish it was Frankenberry for the third time this season over Haefke, Henry, Blackshear, and Wright. Unofficially, with the win, Frankenberry will move to five points behind Haefke with only one week left in the season. This points race may well go to the final lap of the season for this class.

    Joe Long and first feature winner Dave Airgood were the leaders for the start of the regularly scheduled Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Model feature. Airgood immediately launched out to a big lead looking for his fourth win of the year and second of the night with Alan Dellinger coming to second. Chad Wright got to fourth at lap six, dropping Wendall Pinckney to fifth. At halfway it was Airgood over Dellinger, Wright, points leader Kyle Zimmerman, and Long. Before eleven was in the books Mike Bambarger spun in turn three, slowing the field for the first time. Chad Sines spun in turn two at green for the next restart. Pinckney spun in four as the leaders completed lap eleven. Kohle Wanzer was now fifth. With five to go Wright came to second but Airgood had a big lead that disappeared when Ed Bolyard spun in four with four to go. Bolyard stopped in turn two, negating this green. Over the remaining distance, Airgood continued to lead, winning over Wright, Dellinger, Zimmerman, and Wanzer.

    The final feature of the night was the regularly scheduled Bonnell’s Collision Center E-Mods with Troy Johnson and Ken Zimmer up front. Johnson led lap one with Casey Bowers challenging Zimmer for the runner-up spot. Jeremy Double hit the spin cycle in turn two of lap two, slowing the event under caution. Johnson led again after green until Double spun again in turn three. Josh McDonald, Joel Watson, and Rick Pratschler got together in turn four at four laps complete with McDonald and Pratschler coming to a stop and Watson heading to the pit. McDonald also headed pitside but Watson rejoined the race before green again was over the field. Up front for the green Johnson and Eicher raced for the lead with Eicher taking over at seven complete. At halfway it was Eicher, Johnson, Zimmer, Bowers, and Josh Ferry. Bud Watson was challenging for fifth at twelve complete, having it at fourteen. Eicher had a quarter lap lead with two laps left and Zimmer was challenging for second. At the checkers it was Eicher for his third win of the year over Johnson, Zimmer, Bowers, and Watson.

  • Wright Tops the Topless Crate Late Models!

    Miller gets first win, Eicher, Deutsch, score second wins of season, Downes gets fourth of four!

    Conneaut, OH (August 18, 2017): The tops were off the CARS Crate Late Models, allowing fans a more complete view of drivers performing their tasks. Added treats for the fans and CARS Crate Late Model drivers were time trials and “dashes” for the fastest. After all had timed it it was Chad Wright showing as the quickest at 18.969 sec, which s an 83.030 MPH average. Wright went on to sweep the wins for the CARS entrants, winning the dash, his heat, and the feature! In other action Gary Eicher dominated the Bonnell’s Collision Service E-Mods for his second feature win of the season, Tim Deutsch collected his second Raceway 7 feature victory of 2017, Gary Miller won his first-ever Bonnell’s Auto Group Economod Raceway 7 feature, and Zach Downes continued his amazing streak, collecting his fourth victory in as many starts this summer.

    The first feature out was the Campbell’s Mini Storage Street Stocks withTim Deutsch and Mike Clark leading the way. Deutsch was the early leader with Mike Miller coming to second. At halfway Deutsch had a solid lead over Miller with Clark third, Joe Stajnrajh fourth and Don McGuire fifth. Deutsch began lapping the back markers with eleven complete as Miller began closing the gap. Deutsch went on to his second win of the season with the top five remaining the same at the checkers. With his sixth place finish, second in points Jamie Duncan not able to start the feature, and third place points driver Chris McGuire not racing, Kennerknecht opened a substantial lead in the championship standings.

    Josh McDonald and Gary Eicher brought the Bonnell Collision Service E-Mod feature to green with McDonald leading lap one but Eicher taking over the lead on lap two. Troy Johnson challenged McDonald for the runner-up spot with four complete but fell in line a lap later. Again Johnson tried for second at seven complete, this time with success using the high side. Yellow flew at eight complete when Jim Plance spun in turn four. At green Johnson got by McDonald for second with Josh Ferry coming to fourth over Billy Henry. With ten to go, McDonald suddenly slowed on the back straight, pulling to the infield, out of the race. He noted later that it “just shut off”. With five to go Eicher was leading Troy Johnson, Josh Ferry, Jeff Johnson, and Ken Zimmer. Eicher went on to his second win of the season over Troy Johnson, Ferry, Jeff Johnson, and Zimmer. With points leader Joel Watson finishing sixth, Eicher closes the points race by seven markers.

    Chad Wright and Kyle Zimmerman, by virtue of their Dash finishes, started on the front row of the Evergreen Lake Park Campground 25-lap feature, both topless. Wright led in the early going with Darrell Bossard second at two laps complete. At five laps into the race yellow was on the track as Hunter Hulley and Lon Emerick spun in turn two. Emerick retired to the pits under the caution period. Before a lap could be completed John McGee spun in turn two, negating the start. At green Zimmerman came back to second but went wide in turn two, allowing Alan Dellinger to get by, but then was second again at the end of seven. Hulley spun coming out of turn four, his second caution of the race. Wright continued to lead Bossard, Zimmerman, Dellinger, and Bruce Hordusky Jr at halfway. Jeff Walters spun in turn four at eleven complete. Hordusky was fourth at twelve complete. Dylan Goodman, Mike Bambarger, and Bo Walters all spun in turn two with six to go, again eliminating Wright’s lead and restarting Bossard and Zimmerman side by side. Dellinger got by Hordusky at the green and then got by Bossard at sixteen complete with Zimmerman now second. Bambarger spun at seventeen laps, this time in turn four at the same time as Chad Sines spun in turn two. Dellinger and Zimmerman were side by side at eighteen with Dellinger second at nineteen when Walters and Bambarger spun in turn four. It was the third caution for both, sending them both pitside. Zimmerman was second at 21 laps when Chris Withers, Josh Stoica, Joe Long, and Ed Bolyard all got together in turn four. Long required a tow from the racing surface. Wright, led the rest of the way with Zimmerman winding up winning the battle for second over Dellinger, Hordusky, and Bossard. The feature paid $1200 to win plus a bonus of $250 sponsored by Knorr Electric.

    Gary Miller and Gary Olsen brought the Bonnell Auto Group Economods to green with Miller launching out to the lead and Geoff Conn coming from fourth to second at the end of one. At four complete Conn was next to the leader. Before five was finished Casey Harmon looped it in turn four, putting the race under yellow. Olson got sideways in turn two on the green, eventually involving seven cars. However, Olson kept running, so was restored to his spot. Miller, Matt Alexander, Olson, Jace Ferringer, and Tyler Frankenberry brought the race back to green. Miller pulled back out to the lead at green but Alexander was challenging on lap seven. Yellow flew when Mark Titus spun into the outside wall at the end of the back straight. Brandon Blackshear was up to fourth for the restart with Frankenberry fifth. Blackshear, the points leader, never came up to speed at the green and yellow was again shown before lap eight was complete. After a lap of green Olson was second over Alexander but spun in turn two with nine complete. The top five for the next green was Miller, Alexander, Jace Ferringer, Frankenberry, and Steve Haefke. With four to go Eric Reinwald dropped his driveshaft in turn four, putting the race again under caution. With eleven down it was Zach Lenard spinning in turn two, the seventh caution in eleven laps. At the green Conn slammed the retaining wall in turn four. Miller again led at green with Haefke coming to second and Alexander third. With two to go Casey Harmon spun in turn two. With the thirty-minute time limit exceeded, the race was declared complete with Miller the winner, his first win at Raceway 7.

    Jason Easler, the defending champion, and Shawn McBride brought the Sunnyside Farm Transit Mini Stocks to green with Easler jumping out to the lead. Alexis Vogt, Emily Stoyer, Gunner Schwartz, Jessica Harvey, and Mike Gehlhausen all piled into the outside wall at the start. When the race was back to green Easler led with Scott Gill second and Zach Downes up to third. Downes was second at the end of two over Gill, Gary Drake Jr, and Joe Campbell. On the back straight on lap four Downes got by Easler. Campbell was fourth at lap seven with Shane Shook fifth. Dillon Speer came to a stop in turn three with only two laps left, slowing the race again. For the final two lap dash it was Downes, Easler, Gill, Campbell, and Shook heading the single-file restart. Campbell came to third with one to go. At the stripe it was Downes, his fourth win in four starts, over Easler, Campbell, Shook, and Gill.

    Conneaut, OH (August 11, 2017): Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Models will be in the spotlight this Friday at Raceway 7 with the drivers getting the option to run topless.

Last week’s quickest time for the Evergreen Lake Park Campground CARS Crate Late Models was 19.026, set by Chad Wright while enroute to his heat race win.

    The format for the CARS events will be Group time trials to set heat starting grids with each heat paying paying $100 to win. Sponsors for the heats will be Daniels Speed Supply, 955 Automotive and Jason Orr, and Amsoil by Gary and Bonnie Neubauer.
