Fireworks, Five Features Spark Action at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis
(Plymouth, IN)  The clouds gave way for a pleasant evening of racing at the Playground of Power Saturday night where the fans were treated to five divisions of racing and fireworks. The I-Mod drivers came to Plymouth Speedway for the first time this season. Chris Tippit from DeMotte, Indiana led the entire race, but spectators weren’t so sure he would keep that position on lap 13. Tippit was rounding turn one on that lap when Scott Russo spun right in front of him.  The pair made contact and it appeared that the leader sustained damage. However, he kept his spot on the track and kept going to claim the victory.  Don Stone from Buffalo, Indiana took home the second place trophy while Cody Fultz from West Lafayette, Indiana came in third. “I thought he (Russo) was going to cost me the race, but I got my spot back and kept rolling along,” said Tippit. “I’m happy to take home this trophy!”
Winamac, Indiana’s David Short had no trouble picking up another win in the WTCA Super Street feature Saturday night. Short, Roger Duszynski and Mike Garver along with the other drivers in the feature ran single file for most of the quick 15-lap feature and that’s the way they ended up on the podium. “We had a good car,” stated Short.  “We watched the track slick up and I started off really quickly. It’s another great win.”
The Swan Lake Resort UMP Modified drivers provided some drama on the track with the point leader sent to the tail of the field for getting into another driver late in the race.  Jamie Lomax and Bradley Jameson were running first and second respectively at the time. This allowed teammates Tony Anderson from Lima, Ohio and Bill Lewis from Warren, Indiana to grab the top two spots. At the end, it was Anderson with the win, Lewis in second, and a podium finish for Claypool, Indiana’s Zeke McKenzie. “We had a good car in the heat and made some adjustments for the feature. I made contact with another car which shifted my steering a quarter-inch to the left. I was fighting the car after that incident and had some work to do,” said Anderson on his road to victory.
John Rhoads from Mentone, Indiana has been dominant this season in the Walmart Thunder Stock division and kept going with his winning ways Saturday night. Rhoads took the lead early and did not give up that position. As he’s done in many races this year, Jim Henson stayed right in Rhoads’ tracks and claimed the second place spot. Keith Crissinger slipped into the third and final spot on the podium after contact between Tom Grall and Bryan Banta. “We’ve just had a fast car this year and racing Jim Henson has been great,” commented Rhoads.
A first-time winner took home the trophy in the Bane-Welker Cyber Stock Division and he did it in a last-lap pass. Carson Day got the lead quickly and was soon getting heat from Jake Straka for the lead. Straka grabbed the top running spot on lap eight.  Straka kept the lead until the race went green after a flip by Scott Neiswinger.  Straka and Day had contact on the backstretch and as they came to the checkered flag, Day was able to get the edge over Straka off of turn four to win the race. Straka finished second while Aaron Day raced from the back of the field to finish third. “That was a wild finish,” said Carson Day. “Thank you to all of my sponsors for helping make this happen.”
The Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprint drivers were not able to race due to excessive water in the second turn on the Bullring. The track was evaluated by the track staff and deemed unsafe for competition. We apologize for any inconvenience. Fans were treated to fireworks during intermission sponsored by the R&B Car Company.
Celebrate the Fourth of July at Plymouth Speedway where make-up features from June 20 (600 Open Sprints, Thunder Stocks and Cyber Stocks) will be included with a regular line-up of features that Saturday evening. The gates will open at 4 p.m., hot laps start at 6 p.m. and racing begins at 7 p.m. ET.

Open Wheel Wednesday Treats Fans to Great Dirt Track Racing
By: Anita Soltis - June 25, 2015
(Plymouth, IN) Dirt track fans were treated to three and even four-wide racing on the track at Plymouth Speedway in this week’s annual Open Wheel Wednesday event.
It was Kokomo, Indiana’s Shane Cottle who came away with the win in the Dickies Restaurant 600 Non-Wing Sprints event to start the evening of feature racing. He was the class of the field having started from the pole and leading all laps. Bradley Jameson, a Logansport, Indiana native, started right beside Cottle at the start and fell in behind him and that’s where he stayed for the rest of the feature. Lakeville, Indiana’s Eric Saunders snuck into the third and final podium spot after Dawson Stealy fell back a spot. A late-race caution bunched up the field, but the leaders remained on point.
Cottle, who ran the No. 57 usually driven by Chad Hartzell, had fun out front in the feature. “These guys gave me a great car - a bad-fast car,” said Cottle. “It’s a lot of fun to come out here and run with these racers. I hope we put on a good show for the fans.”
Cottle attempted to make it two wins in one night, but he didn’t have the car to get by Cullman, Alabama’s Kevin Thomas, Jr. who dominated the field of 20+ OmniSource 410 Non-Wing Sprints. The real battle on the track was for the two other podium positions between Shane Cottle and Robert Ballou, who calls Westville, Indiana home. The two had been running all over the track trying to get track position. A red flag for CJ Leary, who flipped his sprint car out of turn one, set up a green-white-checkered finish to give the pair a chance to settle the battle. Ballou worked on Cottle for second, but didn’t have enough time to make the pass. Thomas, Jr. won the race with Cottle in second with Ballou trailing Cottle by less than 0.2 seconds for third.
“We had a Cadillac tonight,” smiled Kevin Thomas, Jr. “It was nice to stay out from and not have to pass any cars. It was a relief to run my own race. It was great!”
Athens Archery presented Thomas, Jr. with a bow in addition to his first place trophy. Team VW Audi in Merrillville was also a proud presenting sponsor of Wednesday night’s action.
The Playground of Power crew now prepares for six features plus fireworks Saturday night, sponsored by R&B Car Company. I-Mods will be included with the regular features of the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds, Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints, WTCA Super Streets, Walmart Thunder Stocks and Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks. Gates open at 4 p.m., hot laps start at 6 p.m. and racing is at 7 p.m. ET.

Mother Nature Delays Three Features until June 27
By: Anita Soltis - June 21, 2015
(Plymouth, IN)  Sparks will fly with eight features scheduled for the R&B Company’s fireworks night on June 27 as three features were postponed Saturday night as rain fell on the track. Four features were made up from the previous week including the WTCA Super Streets, Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints, Walmart Thunder Stocks, and Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks. Michael Clark returned to his winning ways as he claimed the win in the WTCA Super Street feature to start the evening’s night of racing.  He was able to fend off Roger Duszynski who attempted a last lap pass. Clark’s margin of victory was merely 0.12 seconds. Calvin Peek, Jr. ended up in the third running position. David Short, who battled Clark for the lead early in the first race and cut a right front tire after making contact, won the second Super Street feature on the evening. Peek, Jr. ended up second with Duszynski finishing third.
The Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints found a repeat winner in the make-up feature. Eric Saunders started fourth in the contest and made it to the lead by the halfway point in the race. He battled with last year’s champion Billy Cribbs for the lead. Cribbs claimed the second spot while Dylan Woodling found himself on the podium for the first time this season in the division. John Rhoads had a close call on the last lap of the Walmart Thunder Stocks feature when a lapped car nearly trapped Rhoads from an oncoming Jim Henson. The two have been in these scenarios all season long, but Rhoads was able to overcome the obstacle for another win on the season. Henson came home second while Derek Danley found his first podium finish this season in third.
Kirby Trent returned to Victory Lane Saturday night with a win in the Bane-Welker Cyber Stock division. It was hard-fought as Trent found himself behind Mark Toney battling for the top spot throughout a good portion of the race. A green-white-checkered situation to determine the winner found Trent behind Aaron Day, but Day experienced mechanical problems. Trent capitalized on Day’s misfortune while Loren Swanson returned to the podium with a second place finish. Harley Kay Sutton got her first top-three finish Saturday night.
The last feature of the night was the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds with Todd Sherman emerging as the victor.  He used the top of the racing groove to get by drivers like Jamie Lomax, Zeke McKenzie, and Bradley Jameson. Lomax was leading on lap 13 when he and Sherman fought side-by-side for position. Sherman claimed the lead and kept the position until the end of the 20-lap feature. Lomax claimed second and Randy Lines snuck into the third spot. Lines also used the top groove of the track to gain position. Rain fell on the track as the Walmart Thunder Stocks began the feature. That feature will be made up on Saturday, June 27 along with the Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks and Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints. A regular night of racing will follow.
Until then, join the Playground of Power crew and drivers in the Team VW Audi 410 Open Sprints and the Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints for Open Wheel Wednesday on Wednesday, June 24. Gates for both nights of racing will open at 4 p.m.  Hot laps will start at 6 p.m. and racing starts at 7 p.m. ET.
 
 
 
 
 
Lomax a Winner in Mod Squad Night at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis - June 14, 2015
(Plymouth, IN)  Lomax dominated the Playground of Power in 2014 and proved that he’s still a force to be reckoned with when he battled two strong drivers in Saturday night’s Mod Squad event. Those two drivers were Todd Sherman and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Justin Allgaier. Sherman led the majority of the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modified race after taking the lead from Dylan Woodling on the first lap.  Lomax started fourth and used the entire race track to slowly gain positions throughout the 30-lap feature. Lomax was second by lap nine after getting by Woodling who continued to fall through the field.  Lapped traffic helped Lomax set his sights on Sherman, who was the leader.  A caution helped bunch up the field and Lomax went after Sherman.
The pair were side-by-side on lap 17 when a caution came out for a spinning car.  They went back to work on each other once the green flag waved and Sherman was able to claim the lead once again. Allgaier and Lomax were then fighting for the second position.  Allgaier was using the top groove of the track to get by competitors and slowly made his way up to the third spot.  Lomax fell to the third position by lap 20, but would get it back after another caution on the track. Sherman was still in the lead by lap 22 while Lomax was in second and Allgaier in third.  On lap 24, Lomax brought the heat to Sherman and assumed the lead on lap 25.
The top three stayed in order when a caution came out on the last lap which created a green-white-checkered finish.  Lomax was able to stay in the lead while Sherman ran second and Allgaier third when the checkered flag waved. “Sherman and I ran close so I worked the bottom.  The top went away for me and I stayed down while Sherman and Allgaier stayed up top.  It was a great, fun race for me,” said Lomax. With his win, Lomax became $1,000 richer.
The rain came right after the feature.  Track officials made the decision to cancel the rest of the features for the night.  The Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints, WTCA Super Streets, Walmart Thunder Stocks, and Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks will have DOUBLE features next week.  The gates will open on Saturday, June 20 at 4 p.m., hot laps will start at 6 p.m. and racing begins at 7 p.m. ET.

Saturday Night Special Heats up Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis - June 6, 2015
(Plymouth, IN)  Five divisions took to the Playground of Power where the drivers fought for every inch of the track for a chance to stand on the Techworks Trailer Sales podium Saturday night. The Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints found a new winner on top of that podium.  Eric Saunders started on the pole and took the early lead.  He didn’t give up the position throughout the 20-lap feature.  It appeared that the second position would be owned by Garrett Saunders, but a bobble allowed Nick Yoder to sneak past Saunders for the second position on lap 14.  Saunders was not able to regain the spot after the pass.  Eric Saunders won the feature, his second career win in the division, while Yoder was second and Garrett Saunders was third. “It’s awesome to be up here again,” said Eric Saunders, who is paralyzed from the chest down.  “I thank everyone who is a part of this win - my sponsors, my family and my fans.  The track was great tonight.”
The Walmart Thunder Stock division also found a new driver on top of the podium Saturday night.  John Rhoads had an undefeated season going into the night, but that would change by the end of the 20-lap feature.  Rhoads did take the lead on lap two and stayed there until a caution bunched up the field with only three laps to go.  Jim Henson had been on the bumper of Rhoads throughout the feature and finally got the lead from Rhoads after the pair battled side-by-side on lap 19.  Rhoads attempted a come back but it wasn’t meant to be.  Henson won the race with Rhoads second and Tom Grall with the last podium spot.  Grall raced from the back of the field to the third place position.  Rhoads and Henson shook hands after getting out of their race cars and talked briefly about the race. “I’m very proud to beat him (Rhoads) as he’s the guy to beat every week,” smiled Henson.  “Thank you to everyone.  I had an issue with the car last week and glad I got it fixed to enjoy the win tonight.”
David Short took home the first place trophy in the 20-lap WTCA Super Streets feature, but it wasn’t easy.  Michael Clark gave him some competition out front as he lead the first six laps.  Short and Clark were side-by-side for the lead on lap seven when Short bumped Clark in turn three and captured the lead.  Clark didn’t give up easily as he attempted to get the spot back but was unsuccessful.  In the meantime, Roger Duszynski started picking through the running order from his seventh place start.  He claimed the third place spot by the 14th lap and tried to run down Clark for second.  Duszynski ran out of laps and ended up on the last spot on the podium.  Clark finished second and Short won the race. “The car handled really well and Clark certainly gave me a good run today.  The track was slick which is more to my liking.  I’m happy with the win,” commented Short.
The Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds race was eventful as Jamie Lomax steered his way into victory - his second win on the season.  Frank Marshall jumped to an early lead but a tie-up with Derek Losh on lap seven would send both drivers to the rear of the field.  Lomax and Marshall were fighting for the lead when they got into each other coming out of turn four.  The two were side-by-side going into turn one and found the field bunched up behind them.  Marshall fell behind Lomax while the race cars driven by Marshall and Losh got hooked together and caused a caution.  The pair were sent to the rear of the field on the restart.   They were in the running order together through much of the contest, but Marshall maneuvered himself into the top-three.  Lomax enjoyed the lead while all of the action unfolded behind him.  Dylan Woodling had started sixth and worked his way into the runner-up position after Marshall and Losh were involved in their dust up.  Woodling held his position for the second podium placement while Marshall rounded out the top three. “There are a lot of good cars in the pits and we got the car where we needed to be.  Frank (Marshall) and I got together in a racing deal.  He had to fight back from the back of the pack.  I give him credit for that.  The track was awesome and I hope we are headed in the right direction,” stated Lomax.
Aaron Day picked up his first feature win in the Bane-Welker Cyber Stock Division Saturday night.  He claimed the lead early and set sail.  Jason Ormsby held the second running position until the last lap when Richard Loraff went around him.  Loraff worked 11 laps to get into the second spot in the running order from the last spot in the field.  Day had the win with Loraff second and Ormsby third. “I felt like the top groove finally came in for me,” said Day.  “It was smooth sailing.  We’ll be back again next week!”
Next week will be Mod Squad night at Plymouth Speedway where the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds will be racing for bragging rights and a large payday.  The Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints, WTCA Super Streets, Walmart Thunder Stocks and the Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks will also race for more money in next week’s full night of racing.  Gates open at 4 p.m., hot laps are at 6 p.m. and racing is at 7 p.m. ET.

World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Invading Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway on October 17 for First Time in History
Series sets 2015 schedule by shifting Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway to June 3, canceling March 27 event at Merced (Calif.) Speedway
CONCORD, N.C. - Jan. 26, 2015 - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will make its inaugural appearance at historic Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway this season. The addition of Plymouth, and two other schedule adjustments, sets the tour for 2015.
The Outlaws will invade Plymouth on Saturday, Oct. 17, with an event that will have an earlier than normal 5 p.m. start time. It will be the fourth World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event in Indiana this season, joining races at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Lawrenceburg Speedway and Kokomo Speedway.
The track, 25 miles south of South Bend, Ind., is a 3/8-mile dirt oval that regularly features DIRTcar UMP Modifieds and sprint cars, among other events, throughout its season. In operation since 1952, the track is undergoing significant improvements for the upcoming year including a new racing surface and grandstands.
"The heartbeat of sprint car racing lies in Indiana and at places like Plymouth Speedway," said World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers. "We are thrilled to bring the The Greatest Show on Dirt to the historic track this season for the first time ever. It is sure to be an exciting event."
In other changes, the series will shift the Tuesday, June 2, event at Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway to Wednesday, June 3, and the event initially scheduled for Friday, March 27 at Merced (Calif.) Speedway has been canceled.
