Mogard and Boyd Win Week 3 of Home Tracks Series

2018-01-24 21-23-05_0

(MECHANICSBURG, PA) A week ago, dirt slingers of the American Sim Racing Series invaded the wide open spaces of the Knoxville Raceway. Week 3 would see the Series come to the tight quarters of the Williams Grove Speedway located in aptly named Mechanicsville, Pennsylvania. Tight corners and high powered racecars make for a spectacle and fans were treated to a one-of-a-kind show tonight. The night included domination, heartbreak, and even a mid-race 360.

2018-01-24 21-19-29_0

Race one saw the UMP Modifieds take to the track. Dirt specialist David Kilanowski Jr. won the pole for the event followed by Jared Mogard, Kris Titus, John Kennedy and Jim Foose. Kilanowski, who looked very fast in practice, would not get to lead a lap from the pole as Jared Mogard passed him on lap 1.

2018-01-24 21-22-22_0

Mogard, who had just won the ASRS Premier Cup Series race at Dover the day before, showed his ability to drive anything with wheels when we went on to lead every lap on route to his UMP victory. Brad Cross, Kris Titus, David Kilanowski Jr and Steve Ritter rounded out the top 5.

2018-01-24 22-14-17_0

Race two will go down in ASRS lore as one of the most action packed events in league history. David Kilanowski would once again grace the front row as the driver of the #106 was able to celebrate sweeping the night’s qualifying sessions. Jason Stewart, Brad Cross, Brandon Boyd and Jay Graves Jr would fill the top 5 of the lineup for the Winged 410 Sprint Car race.

Kilanowski would not relinquish the lead on the first lap in this one. In fact, the #106 would pace all but two laps from the pole. Then heartbreak! The laps he did not lead turned out to be the most important ones. Coming to take the white flag, Kilanowski would brush the wall.

2018-01-24 22-15-19_0

The contact would launch his car into a barrel roll with his car coming to rest on the bottom of the race track. Race officials deemed the racing surface was clear enough to finish the event and Brandon Boyd, who had been stalking Kilanowski, would go on to win the event in thrilling fashion. John Kennedy finished second with Kris Titus finishing third. The most interesting top 5 finisher in this one would be the #00 of Mogard.

2018-01-24 22-16-46_0

After winning the UMP race earlier, the driver would spin out at about the halfway point. This was no ordinary spin, Mogard pulled a complete 360 and continued racing, only relinquishing about 5 positions! Jason Stewart would finish 5th in a much more calm fashion. The ASRS Home Tracks Series will head out to Eldora next week for another double header. After this one, drivers and fans sure are excited!

The Modifieds were up first and it was Brad Cross schooling the field of 19 drivers.  Brad Cross led the field to the green flag with Jared Mogard along side, but things didnt stay that way for long.  Mogard had trouble on the start and caused a stack up creating a quick caution.  Six cautions slowed the pace of the 40 lap race, Cross would come out the winner with John Kennedy second followed by Chad Chambers, Steve Ritter and Jeff Ward rounding out the top five.

2018-01-10 22-30-42_0

The championship standings look much like the race results in both series, however a new challenge this year is that all Home Tracks Series events count for points for an overall Home Tracks Series Champion.
