Schubarth doubles up in specatcular fashion!
Blaine Schubarth took his second victory of the season in spectacular style on Saturday September the 5th at -I76 Speedway. Starting the main event from 5th on the grid Blaine quickly made his way through to second early on as Mike Rotramel in the 25 made a great start to lead the early running. After an early caution Blaine took the lead and was never headed as he took a handy lead to the checkered flag.
The closest battle of the night was between Scott Wilson in the 7 and Steve Becker in the 31. After a race long battle going back and forth it was eventually Wilson who took the second spot ahead of Becker in third.
Rounding out the top 5 was Troy Ullery in the 1T in fourth and Dale Johnston in fifth, both drivers putting in solid drives on a low grip track.
Special mention this week goes to the 24B team of Johnny Boos, who turned around a series of misfortunes early in the night to recover to an 8th place finish.

Waterland makes it four in Byers
Glenn Waterland took the win on September 4th at Byers to make his first trip to victory lane with the wings on board. After a great battle with Steve Becker early, Waterland took the advantage on the only yellow flag restart of the night. Becker in the 31 came home in second.
Highlight of the night was seeing number 60 Gary Helkin take the final spot on the podium after a race long battle with the 9F of Andy Flood. Gary shows his commitment to the sport every week as he makes the long journey from Montrose, Colorado every week to race with the RMLSA so it's great to see that dedication rewarded with a podium place.
The top five was rounded out by Andy Flood and John Frasier in the 11.

It's a Non-Wing Triple for Waterland
Glenn Waterland in the 11c took his third win of the year last Saturday on a superbly prepared I-76 Speedway. Waterland started from the 8th spot on the grid and quickly moved through to the lead on lap 3, from here he survived two cautions to pull away for the win.
In second place was the ever consistent Troy Ullery in the 1T. Troy started in the 11th spot and had one close call as he rode a wheel as he made his way through traffic.
Number 5, Brandon Steele made a welcome return to the track and showed his class to take the final podium spot after 3 years away from the drivers seat.
Steve Becker in the 31 enjoyed a strong night to come through from 13th on the grid to finish in fourth. Unfortunately Steve gave up a the final podium spot on the last lap as Steele fought his way through.
The top 5 was rounded out by car 7, Scott Wilson, who also took a heat race win on the night to make yet another strong points haul. This result moves Scott up to second in the points.
Uncharacteristically there was damage to some of the cars, with Johnny Boos, Davy McCray, Paul Babich, Andy Flood and Dale Johnston all ending up with bent parts and pieces. Let's hope the damage wasn't too bad and we'll see them all back soon.

Ullery's domination continues
Troy Ullery made it 5 wins for the season on Saturday, August 22, 2015 to continue his domination of the year so far.
Ullery started 12th on the grid and made his way through the field with some great passes both high and low to take the win. After winning the first heat Johnny Boos in the 24B also had a great drive through the field to second place. Making his first visit to Calhan this year was Paul Babich in the 69, surely not his last after a great performance to finish third on the podium.
The top 5 was completed by Scott Wilson who won the third heat race and Tim Snelling who made his first trip to the scales this year after a great battle early on with Cullen Pottaker up the front.
Special mention to Cullen Pottaker this week, who started the main event on the pole and showed great form to lead the early running. Unfortunately mechanical gremlins prevented Cullen from finishing the race, but if this young racer can put together this type of form for the rest of the year he will surely get some great results.
Once again thanks to Missy ullery for this great video of all the action.

Lightning strikes twice for Waterland
The 11c of Glenn Waterland swept to his second victory of the year at Sherman County Speedway in Goodland Kansas.
Troy Ullery in the 1T took the lead early from the 4th starting spot followed closely by the 31 of Steve Becker. Meanwhile Waterland had a poor start and dropped back to 9th from 3rd on the grid, eventually he found his groove and started moving back through the field. With 3 laps to go he moved around the outside and into the lead where he stayed to the flag.
After a race long battle between Ullery, Becker and Scott WIlson, it was Ullery and Becker who completed the podium. Wilson eventually secured 4th place with the 30 of Scott Heikes making a well earned visit to the scales in 5th.
The race was punctuated by a long red flag period after the 29 of Skylar Wissman took a tumble in turn 3, thankfully he walked away mostly unharmed apart from some bumps and bruises.
That wraps up the big track running for the year, it's 1/4 mile all the way to the end of the season now with visits to El Paso County Speedway and I76 Speedway completing the calendar.

Ullery for four at Byers!
Troy Ullery once again hit the top step of the podium with a commanding win at Colorado Motorsports Park in Byers Colorado. Ullery moved to the lead early with a pass around the outside of Steve Becker who eventually finished on the podium after a very close run to the line with Davy McCray.
The top five was completed by Dale Johnston and Skylar Wissman in the 29.
A pair of tip overs highlighted the main event, first up it was Jesse Fernandez who rode a wheel and put the number 19 upside down for the second time this year, continuing his run of bad luck. Second up was Scott WIlson in the number 7 Fabtech. Scott clipped one of the marker tires on the exit of turn 4, spun and parked himself upside down. Thankfully both drivers were unharmed.

Ullery back with a vengence.
The second Friday night show for the year ended with victory once again for Troy Ullery, who bounced back after 2 DNF's at Dodge City to reclaim the top spot on the podium. This was Ullery's third win of the year, and so far the only person to take more than one victory.
24 cars signed in for the annual fair race at El Paso, and the competition was hot and heavy all night long. The podium was completed by Skylar Wissman who achieved his best result so far with the RMLSA in second and backed up a third place spot a Dodge City to solidify his credentials at the top of heap. Blaine Schubarth took his beautifully prepared NAPA number 2 Hyper to third.
The top five was rounded out by Steve Becker who is consistently putting in solid results after a rough start to the season with two DNF's and the super consistent Scott Wilson in the number 7 Fabtech.
Jesse Fernandez made the highlight reel once again, this time with a gentle flip coming out of turn 2. He was able to continue minus his top wing, and put in a solid effort despite that handicap.
Until next time check out this great video shot by Missy Ullery!

Dodge City Saturday win goes to Butler
July 4th saw another great line up of 25 cars take to the Dodge City high banks. This time it was youth versus experience on the front row with Johnny Boos lining up alongside Wally Butler.

Hench finished second after once again passing a lot of cars from the 10th starting spot. The podium was completed by Roland Bernard who made excellent use of the high line to pass a number of cars on the outside. The top five was completed by Boos and Glenn Waterland in the 11c.
A big thanks goes out to all the cars who traveled from Manitoba, Minnesota, California, Nebraska and Missouri to join all the RMLSA regulars for a great weekend of racing.

Night 1 at Dodge City goes to Dvergsten
The RMLSA has made it's way to the Kansas heartland in Dodge City. Night 1 of the 2 night show was won by Dexter Dvergsten visiting all the way from Minnesota.
A great field of 25 cars took the green with Bobby Layne leading early, a tangle with Troy Ullery bought the yellow which bunched up the field and gave Dexter his chance. Layne's car appeared to tighten up in the latter stages and Dexter moved through for the victory.
The podium was completed by Wally Butler and Skylar Wissman, with Bobby Layne eventually finishing fourth and Rich Hench in fifth having made his way through from the 18th grid position.

May 23rd Race at El Paso County Raceway
A great field of 23 signed in to race on Memorial Weekend Saturday. Despite heavy rain in many parts of the state, the weather gods were smiling on El Paso County Raceway and with only a few drops of rain during hot laps the racing was uninterrupted by the weather.
The main event was taken out by Brent Rees after some great battles for the lead throughout the race. The podium was completed by the ultra consistent Troy Ullery and Matt Martinez who proved that bad luck has nothing to do with the 13th grid spot.
Rounding out the top five were Dave McCrea who's joined the RMLSA from the legends class and Blaine Schubarth who fought back after being tangled early on.
Unfortunately the second night of the memorial weekend double header was rained out so the next time we'll see the lightning sprints back on track will be at I-76 Speedway on June the 20th, we hope to see you then!
