Plymouth Speedway Opens for 2016 Season
By: Anita Goodan - Posted April 24, 2016
(Plymouth, IN)  Plymouth Speedway officials opened the gates to drivers and fans for the Cabin Fever event on Saturday night. New grandstands awaited fans and a wider racing surface on the two available tracks welcomed five classes of drivers.
The Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds took to the track to open the feature events with Valparaiso, Indiana’s Frank Marshall dominating the race.  Randy Lines, of Marion, Indiana, started on the pole and found himself in a battle with Rensselaer’s Derek Losh for the second position by the third lap.  Losh ended up with the spot. Last year’s track champion, Jamie Lomax, started using the outside groove and slid his way into the third position by lap 10. Marshall was about to run away from the race contenders when a late-race caution bunched up the field. Losh attempted to use the top groove to better Marshall, but Marshall had the faster Modified.  Marshall won the feature with Losh in second. Lomax, of Lake Village, Indiana, defended his third place position after a last lap effort by Lines for that spot.
Move Roger Duszynski, Jr. to the top of the points after his WTCA Super Street feature win Saturday night. He assumed the lead after the leader, Eric Hunter, turned around on the track in an early scuffle. Duszynski, Jr. was running second at the time of the caution. Bob Bourff, of Sharpsville, Indiana, worked his way behind Duszynski, Jr. after several cars were shuffled around after the caution. Coopersville, Michigan’s Joshua Frye moved into the third position by lap seven and had to ward off a charging Bob McLean with half of the laps ran in the race. The pair were side-by-side when lapped traffic slowed McLean and Frye in the closing laps of the 20-lap feature. Dyzynski, Jr., of Black Oak, Indiana, won the race with Bourff second and Frye third.
Kevin Atkins was the winner in the newest class of race cars at the Playground of Power. Ten Shepherd Firearms Pro Sprints were slated to start the inaugural feature event. After a few spins to begin with, Atkins was able to take charge of the race where the Warsaw, Indiana driver stayed. While Atkins had clean air, Joe Swanson and Zane Devault traded spots for the next two positions on the track. Swanson, of Etna Green, Indiana, was able to get by Devault for second on lap seven and the top three remained the same throughout the rest of the 20-lap feature.  By the end of the contest, Atkins had an 8.9 second lead on the field. Swanson finished second while Devault, of Plymouth, Indiana, rounded out the top three.
A Portage, Indiana driver came to the checkered flag first in an eventful Walmart Thunder Stock feature, but he take to work for it. RJ Akers and Winamac, Indiana’s Jim Henson went side-by-side after a caution on lap six where Akers pulled ahead for the lead. Chris Joseph, of Kewanna, Indiana started putting pressure on Henson for the second spot by lap nine, but couldn’t make the pass.  On the last lap, Joseph dove into turn three and bumped the rear of Henson’s car in an attempt to move Henson out of the way, but was not successful. Akers watched it all from the rearview mirror as he crossed the finish line first while Henson finished second and Joseph third.
The Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints rounded out the Cabin Fever event Saturday night. Tyler Orr, of Buffalo, Indiana, started the race on the pole and never looked back. Granger, Indiana’s Chad Hartzell attempted to get by the race leader with an inside pass in the early laps, but couldn’t make it work. On lap seven, Warsaw’s Dylan Woodling used the outside groove and claimed the third position. Woodling passed Hartzell for second when lapped traffic bunched up the running order and Hartzell fell out of line. Woodling threatened Orr for the lead in the last few laps, but Orr claimed the victory with Woodling in second and Hartzell in third.
More work will be completed on the grandstands and other improvements will be ongoing before the cars take the track for the next Saturday night special set for April 30. The gates will open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. ET.
 
 
 
 
Denny Long
New Face on Flag Stand at Plymouth Speedway
By:  Anita Goodan
(Plymouth, IN) After 15 years of flagging on the road, Denny Long is staying home to be atop the flag stand at the Playground of Power.
“It’s great to come home,” said Long. Long, of Plymouth, started as a flag man at South Bend and has been involved in different series of racing in the state and in the Midwest.  He’s been east of the Mississippi and even to Daytona to flag a race.
It’s a family affair as his children are into the sport as well as many other family members who have influenced his decision to be a fixture in racing.  His daughter helps score in the Go Kart Series and his son tunes Go Karts and even helps spot for a driver in the Indy Car series.
Long said he’s been a part of the sport since the 1960’s. “I did leave the sport for a while and served on the City of Plymouth Police Department,” he mentioned.  “I retired in 1999 and have been on the road for 26 weekends a year.  I’m glad to finally be home and it’s fun to be at a dirt track.”
This will be Denny Long’s first season at Plymouth Speedway.  The season begins this Saturday, April 23.  Gates open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. ET.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pro Sprints Bring Wings and Wheels to 2016 Plymouth Speedway Weekly Schedule - posted Thursday, March 17, 2016
Plymouth Speedway, in conjunction with World Racing Group's(World of Outlaws) DIRTCAR sanctioning body, brings winged sprint cars to the weekly Saturday night racing program for 2016. The sprint cars join UMP Mods, Super Streets, Thunder Stocks at the fast 3/8 mile clay oval. The wild Non Wing 600cc micro sprints compete on the infield 1/8 mile oval as well.  
The DIRTCAR Pro Sprint car shares the same chassis and safety components as the World of Outlaws and most other sprint cars in competition around the world today. The major difference is in the engine bay, where the GM part number 19258602 (GM602 for short) is the only engine allowed.  DIRTCAR is transitioning some of its weekly stock car classes away from open built engines to the 602 and has seen success and growth as the engine becomes more and more popular.
The class was developed and tested throughout 2015 under the guidance of Larry Kemp of WRG and Joe Gaerte. "This class is structured to stay in control of costs associated with sprint car racing. The three big things-engine, shocks and tires, they are the focus of the cost saving with this class," said Kemp. "A turnkey engine from Pace Performance (www.paceperformance.com) is $7850. The engine is going to be good for a couple of seasons.  Don Blackshear at Pace has really gone to school on what these engines need to be both reliable and have good performance." DIRTCAR has also taken a stand to save the racers money in shock absorbers and tires. Kemp says, "The shock rules are very reasonable ." Regarding tires, Kemp stated, "The right rear is a 103/14-15 PRO SPRINT, and Hoosier has in stock now. The left rear is the late model tire of 90" and 92", so stagger cannot get out of control.  The front tires are any Hoosier, but we suggest using a UMP Mod tire that cost a lot less. The tire package has proven to provide good wear night after night, while not locking them down. Joe Gaerte has had a lot of input into this class along with testing this past summer. Gaerte said ” There is nothing wrong with 360 &410 wing sprint racing as long as you can afford them, and you will never be able to race a sprint car for less than this unless you drive for someone”.
Local racers can purchase the engines from Gaerte Engines 574-223-3016 For all the rules go to www.plymouthspeedway.net. Plymouth Speedway is under the ownership and guidance of former modified racer and businessman Ed Kennedy. While his competitive laps were plied on the asphalt tracks of the northeast, Kennedy has revitalized a community with the speedway's move to its clay surface following the 2012 racing season. With his belief that investment is the secret to success, Kennedy announced a both ambitious and impressive renovation and construction plan in January 2015. "The fans pay to see good racing," said Kennedy. "Making the experience a positive thing doesn't stop at the catch fence. Better seating, access, sound system and concessions are not only possible, but necessary to make an evening at Plymouth Speedway the best experience value fans can get and bringing the Pro Sprints is what people want to see. I am willing to make the investment into this class, because it is the future and the class is going to be at Plymouth for years to come as it has too many good people behind it." There have been a few tracks that are going to see how it goes at Plymouth and are looking at adopting this class for 2017.
While the track owner admits he's still learning the details of dirt track racing and prep, his business acumen has led him to put together a solid staff that attends to the facility. He also knows that open wheel racing is a big deal across the Hoosier State. "The expenses of sprint car racing, both wing and non wing, have climbed to the point a regular working man cannot afford to race successfully, even one night at the local track. The DIRTCAR Pro Sprint class is an opportunity for people to race without mortgaging everything they own. It has brought former racers back into competition. It has allowed current sprint car racers the option to move into Pro Sprints by basically moving to the GM 602 engine. It has also given racers in other classes the chance to move in sprint car racing."
