Plymouth Speedway Fans Enjoy Eight Features on Independence Day
By: Anita Soltis - July 5, 2015
(Plymouth, IN) It was a night packed full of track fireworks as eight features were scheduled at the Playground of Power Saturday night - three of those were makeup features from a rain-out on June 20. It was John Rhoads showing the way in the first makeup feature of the night when he passed Keith Crissinger on the last lap for the win in the Walmart Thunder Stocks division. Bryan Banta took the third place finish in that race. Banta would later find himself on the top of the podium in the second feature of the night as he held off Rhoads in the closing laps. Eric Hunter put on a show with Banta and Rhoads but was later disqualified. Chad McLean was scored as the third place finisher. “I don’t know how I did it, but I kept them behind me,” said Banta on his first feature win of the season. “A year ago I broke my arm that cost me the championship. This makes up for it.”
Eric Saunders took home two first place trophies in the Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints division in both the make up and regularly scheduled features. Saunders’ brother, Garrett, had the lead in the first contest of the night, but spun while leading which put the elder brother at the top of the field. Eric Saunders finished first with Bud McCune and Blake Lamb rounding out the top three in that order. Eric Saunders was the benefactor of a mistake by leader Nick Yoder in the second feature of the evening. Yoder got out of his racing groove on the last restart of the race and hit the cushion on the track. That action allowed Saunders to race on by for the lead. Saunders won the feature with Yoder second and Dylan Woodling in third. “The car was really great. It’s awesome to have so many people who support the track. There are so many people behind me supporting me too. It’s a great feeling,” said Saunders in his post-race interview. The Day family spent the evening leading both of the Bane-Welker Cyber Stock features Saturday night. Carson Day won the makeup feature with Aaron Day following in second and Jake Straka in third. Aaron Day then held off Carson Day and Jake Straka for much of the second feature. The trio started in the back of the pack, but issues with other competitors thinned the field to four drivers at the end of the feature. Straka was bumped by Carson Day in the closing laps and Straka spun. Straka dropped to fourth in the running order while Carson Day was attempting to get track position. Day won the feature with Aaron Day in second place and Alyssa Clark in third. “Carson and Straka have gotten faster as the season has gone on,” laughed Aaron Day. “We didn’t have a great car this evening, but I got lucky and got around them.”
Jamie Lomax quickly took the lead in the only Swan Lake Resort UMP Modified feature of the night and didn’t let anyone else by through the 20-lap feature. Lomax found himself on the bottom part of a three-wide race with lapped cars which allowed the second running car of Derek Losh to reel in Lomax. Lomax didn’t give up the position. Losh later fell to the fourth position when Dillon Nusbaum and Dylan Woodling moved up spots in the field. Nusbaum used the outside lane to get around Woodling for second place as the laps wound down in the contest. Lomax claimed the win while Nusbaum held the second position and Woodling occupied third in the running order. The single WTCA Super Street feature found a different driver on top of the field. Roger Duszynski started on the outside pole and jumped to the lead quickly with points leader David Short in his tracks. Short tried everything he could to get by Duszynski, but he stayed in Duszynski’s rearview mirror. Meanwhile, Calvin Peek, Jr. moved into the third place after pole-sitter Bob McLean fell to the fourth position. Duszynski got the elusive win while Short finished second and Peek, Jr. in third. “David wasn’t getting it - not tonight,” joked Duszynski. “I had a great time! It was good luck for me tonight.” Join us for autograph night on Saturday, July 11 where the drivers will have hero cards to sign for the fans. A regular night of racing is also included with the Swan Lake Resort UMP Modifieds, WTCA Super Streets, Walmart Thunder Stocks, Bane-Welker Cyber Stocks and Dickies Restaurant 600 Open Sprints. The gates open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m. ET.
 
 
Fireworks, Five Features Spark Action at Plymouth Speedway
By: Anita Soltis - June 28, 2015
(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.

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.
