“Flash” Karl and Speakman Go Two for Two in 2015 Sandusky Speedway Action

 

The cars and stars of the Sandusky Speedway were finally back in action Saturday night after the Super Nationals presented by T&B Excavation were rescheduled due to rain last weekend. The #42 Tony K’s Bar and Grill Ohio Stock piloted by Jerry Karl survived the melee to win the Digital Yalo Ohio Stock event, while the rest of his failed to maneuver through the carnage in order to finish. Meanwhile, in Pie Factory Buckeye Super Sprint Series action, Joe Speakman wheeled his #72 Kartington Raceway sponsored car to victory by a full straightaway in a car reminiscent of the supermodifieds of old. Other feature winners included the #11 Arc Alloy/Lock Family car of Kenny Sharp in the modifieds, the #16 car of Logan Cooper in the Milan Automotive Street Stock division and Kelly Lille’s #39 in the Melinda! Melinda! Hobby Stocks.

 

In the Milan Automotive Street Stock twenty lap feature event, Mark “Speed” Resor would pace the field to the green in his Miller Farms #69 alongside the TGE Pool Service #24 of John Konzelman. Resor would take off on the start, bringing Logan Cooper’s #16 along for the ride. Konzelman’s lap six spin from the third position would give Cooper the opportunity needed to get around Resor, as Cooper motored his Track Kings machine past Resor using the inside line on lap seven. Resor’s failure to keep the rear end of his car planted firmly in the track would also allow Collin Penn to sneak by in the Intertech #52, but Cooper would go on for the win over Penn, Resor and Konzelman.

 

As the Pie Factory Buckeye Super Sprint Series cars took to the speedway, the #00 Joey Irwin ThinkSchlink.com machine would start alongside the Mike Burkin SDR/VisionQuest #48 on the front row. Burkin would lead the first lap from the outside line, but would soon come under fire by the #72 of Joe Speakman. Speakman would sneak past Burkin on the fourth lap and lead the next seventeen circuits to pick up the victory over Burkin, Mike Moore, Irwin, “The Demon” Donavan Daniels, and Ray Thurston.

 

Julia Buckles and Jeff Karl would pace the field for the twenty lap Digital Yalo Ohio Stock feature event. Unfortunately, tragedy would strike early as Jeff Karl, Joe Borczuch and Rich Clingan would all be sent spinning off of turn four before one lap could be completed. All were able to continue save for Karl, who went off the track with a broken rear end.

Rich Clingan’s #21, despite being involved in the lap one caution, was able to take the lead from the outside line on the restart. However, Clingan was to receive no great reprieve as Jerry “the Flash” Karl came up to his door and gave him two laps worth of side by side racing action before Clingan resigned himself to the runnerup position. Kargo Racing was only to finish with one of their three bullets in the field, but the aim was spot on with their survivor as Jerry Karl took the checkered flag by a half of a straightaway over Rich Clingan and Julia Buckles. The #00 of Borczuch retired from the race under his own power with five laps to go, while Jeff Karl failed to even make a lap before his contact with the wall sidelined him to watch from the grandstands.

 

Chris “the Disaster” Nicastro would start alongside the ‪#‎7x‬ of Richie Clem on the front row of the fifteen lap feature event for the Melinda! Melinda! Hobby Stock class. LJ Stanley would take the lead with a risky three wide move on the first lap, followed by Kelly Lille and Dylan Watson sneaking by to take the second and third positions respectively. Watson was to pull away from a struggling Lille on lap three, following that up by passing Stanley for the lead on lap five. Lille managed to steal the runner-up position at the halfway point, but Watson checked out over Lille, Stanley, Clem and Nicastro in order to pick up the win.

The Sandusky Speedway modified division presented by Bobbi Jo Jenkins’ Two Thumbs Up Productions were the last division to hit the speedway for the night, with the #05 Los Buenos Amigos car of Tim Ensign flanking the #15 of Tyler Noeske on the front row. The two-time champion Ensign would shoot to the lead, with Justin Hamilton settling into the runner-up position followed by the #11 of Kenny Sharp. This order was reasonably stable until around the halfway mark in the twenty lap event when Jason Drew’s #26 would spin along with the #1 of Tom Joy on the back straightaway.

 

This caution and ensuing restart would give “The New Bandit”, Kenny Sharp, the opportunity he needed to take the lead. Ensign’s troubles were soon compounded as he spun by himself with just a handful of laps to go, relinquishing his runner-up position. Sharp would go on for the win over Chris Hamilton, Jason Drew, Tom Joy, Tim Ensign, Tyler Noeske, Chad Atkinson, Justin Hamilton, and Kegan Bartlome.

 

The speedway will be back in action next weekend as the modified division returns to the hallowed grounds for a $1000 to win feature event. This is likely to bring drivers from all over the Midwest as it is also being contested on a date when no other track is running in the area, Sunday May 24th. The mods will also be complemented with the Digital Yalo Ohio Stocks, the Milan Automotive Street Stocks, and the Melinda! Melinda! Hobby Stock division.

Sandusky Season Opener Sees Shullick Win Third Consecutive Event of 2015

(SANDUSKY, OH, May 2nd, 2015)- Despite the rain postponements that plagued Midwestern motorsports last weekend, the Sandusky Speedway season opening event still managed to leave even the veteran viewers in awe after the tire smoke settled and the smell of burning high-octane fuel left the air. The events saw relative newcomers like Tyler Shullick and Mike White take feature wins as well as some veterans like LJ Stanley and Jerry Karl take top honors during the Dick Ensign Memorial Season Opener presented by Bartlome Electric.





During the Digital Yalo Ohio Stock twenty lap feature event, 2009 Sandusky Speedway Street Stock champion Clayton Karl would pace the field flanked by the #05 Autobody Products Inc. sponsored machine driven by heat race winner Julia Buckles. Buckles would take the lead after a short lived spirited battle. Clayton Karl would not be left alone however, as his brother and defending Ohio Stock champion Jerry Karl would take the runner up position in his #42 Tony K’s Bar and Grille machine.





Jerry Karl would eventually run down and pass Buckles for the lead at the ten lap mark of the event. Clayton Karl would compound Buckles’ compromised position and pass her slipping vehicle on lap sixteen, with Rich Clingan also taking advantage of Buckles’ sporadic loss of traction to capture a podium position on lap eighteen.





When the checkered flag fell on the event, it was Jerry Karl continuing his dominance over his brother Clayton, Rich Clingan, Julia Buckles, and Joe Borczuch. One cannot help but harken back to a preseason interview stating that this season was the test to see if the relative template body monopoly was the reason for Jerry Karl’s dominance. However, seeing the entire finishing order featured template cars exclusively, it looks as though one can cross that excuse off the list.





In the fifteen lap Melinda! Melinda! Hobby Stock feature, Chris “the Disaster” Nicastro would pit his #92 Ralston Auto Repair machine against the ‪#‎7x‬ of Richie Clem on the drop of the green flag. However, heat race winner LJ Stanley in the #24 would roll to the front of the pack on the first lap, with fast qualifier Kelly Lille in the #39 taking the runner up position on lap three. Lille would slowly reel in Stanley and be on his back bumper at the drop of the checkered flag. Unfortunately for Lille, it would be to no avail as Stanley would go on to take the win over Lille, Clem, and Nicastro.





The modified division twenty lap feature would start with former 305 sprint car standout Joey Wyckoff facing off against long time stock car ace Tom Joy. Wyckoff would take the lead on the start, bringing the inside line with him, including heat race #2 winner Chris Hamilton. Soon, however, the duo would be challenged by relative newcomer Tyler Shullick in the #61 Scott’s Sport Cards and Coins/Kendra Screen Printing car.





Shullick would overtake Chris Hamilton and begin hunting the leader Wyckoff. This action would be supplemented by Jason Drew spinning out on lap seven. The top five for the restart would be Wycokff, Shullick, Hamilton, Kenny Sharp, and Tom Joy.





Wyckoff’s problems were about to be even worse than facing off against a hot shoe such as Tyler Shullick. When he began to pick up the throttle for the restart in his #07 Dock Motorsports machine, he half-spun, bringing the inside line to a crawl as the outside line sailed away under the command of Shullick towards the green flag. The race would stay green until Justin Hamilton tapped Wyckoff seven laps later on lap fourteen, sending Wyckoff for a spin.





On the restart, Chris Hamilton would loop his #75 JL Reichert Paving car. This would set up a five lap shootout with Tyler Shullick, Kenny Sharp, Logan Hamilton, Jason Drew, and Tom Joy making up the top five. Unfortunately, the dramatic action expected within the modified division would once again explode into excess on lap seventeen as Jason Drew and Logan Hamilton made contact, resulting in Hamilton stuffing his car into the backstretch wall.





The final restart would see Tyler Shullick use his objectionable but effective restart mastery to sail to victory over Kenny Sharp, Tom Joy, Bailey Delfosse, and John Bartlome. Kegan Bartlome, Justin Hamilton, Jason Drew, Chris Hamilton, Joey Wyckoff, Tyler Noeske, Chad Atkinson and Logan Hamilton would finish out the running order.





For the final event of the evening, “Rowdy” Carl Smith would pit his #54 Kyle Busch Xfinity lookalike against the #24 of John Konzelman. The inside line would go on the start, although Carl Smith was not out of the woods yet as the #52 car of Collin Penn would bring the #51 JPI Collision machine of Mike White to resign Smith to third. On lap three, White would take the lead from Penn as Carl Smith slid to the tail end of the field.





Collin Penn would continue his own backslide, resigning to third as fast qualifier Logan Cooper surged past on lap six. The following lap, the outside polesitter, John Konzelman, would spin his TGE Pool Service machine in turn two. The restart would see Mike White fending off Logan Cooper, Collin Penn, Carl Smith, and John Konzelman.





White and Cooper would go on for a furious fifteen lap battle. The climax of this was when both drivers nearly wrecked coming to the two laps to go mark. However, White would go on to best Cooper, Penn, Konzelman, and Smith.









The non-wing Buckeye Super Sprint Series also put on a ten lap exhibition race between the #72 Kartington Raceway car of Joe Speakman and the #48 WLDC machine of Mike Burkin. In action next week at the speedway’s Super Nationals are the Midwest Supermodified Association’s winged roadsters and the Main Event Racing Series outlaw body super late models alongside the Milan Automotive Street Stocks and the Melinda! Melinda! Hobby Stock division. One of the attractions of this event is the possibility of a supermodified breaking into the unprecedented thirteen second bracket after DJ Shullick set the overall track record at the Main Event weekend last year with a lap of 14.045 seconds in his #95 Elios Financial Group Jim Bodnar built chassis nicknamed ‘Ice’.
