NASCAR's Matt Crafton Enters Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway

For Immediate Release:

Thursday, July 19, 2012


; Tickets on Sale at Indianapolis Menards Stores


(TOLEDO, Ohio) - NASCAR veteran Matt Crafton will make the fifth ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards start of his career in next Friday's Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 200 at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.


Crafton, who has started 281 consecutive races in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series dating back to 2000, will drive the No. 88 Messina Wildlife Management/Menards Toyota for ThorSport Racing, joining teammate Frank Kimmel, driver of the No. 44 Ansell/Menards entry. The number on Crafton's ARCA car will match that on his ThorSport truck, the No. 88 Menards Toyota.


The California native will hope to bounce back from a 32nd-place finish in last year's race at Lucas Oil, when he exited after just 75 of 203 laps. He will look to recapture the success he had in an ARCA car in 2010, when he finished in the top five at both Toledo and Iowa Speedways.


Crafton is currently sixth in Truck Series points, and actually has 11 Truck Series races under his belt at the 0.686-mile Lucas Oil Raceway. Last year, he finished sixth to follow up on a career-high third in 2010.


Crafton's opportunity to race in the ARCA Racing Series is a result of the overall Menards Racing vendor program in ARCA, and part of the business relationship between sponsors Messina Wildlife Management and Menards. The Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 200 title sponsorship is part of the comprehensive Menards Racing vendor program that includes not only an Official Company sponsorship with ARCA, but also a special award sponsorship in the Team Messina Rookie Challenge.


All on-track activity for the Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 200 will take place Friday, July 27. Two practices will take place, from 1:35-2:30 and 3-3:45. Menards Pole Qualifying will start at 5:30, setting the field for the 200-lap race at 9 p.m. ARCARacing.com will feature live timing and scoring of all of the day's action, and SPEED will televise the 9 p.m. race live. The ARCA CRA Super Series will join the ARCA Racing Series at the track, giving fans in Indianapolis a double feature of ARCA divisions.


Thanks to series presenting sponsor Menards, tickets are now available at $10 off of the advertised at-track price.

Fans can now buy tickets for the ARCA doubleheader at $25 each at 17 Menards stores throughout Indiana: Anderson, Avon, Bloomington, Camby, Carmel, Columbus, Danville, Fishers, Greenwood, Kokomo, Lafayette South, Lebanon, Muncie, Terre Haute, West Lafayette, and the East and South stores in Indianapolis.

The in-store ticket promotion will last until Thursday, July 26, one day before the race.


Chicagoland Speedway is the next stop for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, with the Ansell ActivArmr® 150 scheduled for just two days from today - Saturday, July 21.


2012 is the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards' 60th Anniversary Season, featuring 20 races at 18 tracks. The complete 2012 event schedule is available at ARCARacing.com.


The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards has crowned an ARCA national champion each year since its inaugural season in 1953, and has toured over 200 race tracks in 26 states since its inception. The series has tested the abilities of drivers and race teams over the most diverse schedule of stock car racing events in the world, visiting tracks ranging from 0.375 mile to 2.66 miles in length, on both paved and dirt surfaces as well as a left- and right-turn road course in its most recent season. This year, the series visited Alabama's Mobile International Speedway and Minnesota's Elko Speedway for the first time.


Founded by John and Mildred Marcum in 1953 in Toledo, Ohio, the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) is recognized among the leading sanctioning bodies in the country. Closing in on completing its sixth decade after hundreds of thousands of miles of racing, ARCA administers over 100 race events each season in three professional touring series and local weekly events.

Crazy Horse Racing Teams Ready To Prove Their Mettle At Oxford

39th Annual TD Bank Oxford 250

A 'Crazy' Time Of Year

SOUTH PARIS, Maine – If there's one thing Travis Stearns points to this year, it's just how consistent his race cars have been in weekly competition at Oxford Plains Speedway.


With a pair of wins, five Top-5s and no finish worse than sixth in seven races this season, Stearns has a 31-point lead over the rest of the field as the Late Model world descends upon Oxford for this weekend's 39th annual TD Bank Oxford 250. Practice is on Saturday and Sunday, with qualifying set for 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon and the main event in the evening.

Stearns is as excited about this weekend's edition of the prestigious short-track race as he has been about any prior.

“I've felt pretty good before, but I've had nothing to really show for it. The car's just a lot better now,” said Stearns, who has qualified for the race three years in a row with a career-best finish of 10th in 2009. “We have a good car, period. It's something I'm not really used to coming into this race.”

Part of the reason for Stearns' success has been a new Crazy Horse Racing chassis that he's using. Built over the off-season, he's noticed the benefits immediately. The biggest thing has been the car's consistency over long runs, something that should set up nicely for Sunday's 250-lap event.

Mickey Green, who not only builds cars at Crazy Horse Racing alongside Mitch Green but is also Austin Theriault's crew chief on the ACT Late Model Tour, said that kind of consistency was the goal when the company set out in designing its 2012 chassis.

“I don't think they fall off as much,” Green said. “They may not all go out and run the quickest lap times – but they don't drop off. Look at Travis – everyone thinks he's so much faster than everybody else, but he's not. He's just staying more consistent throughout the race. When everyone else starts dropping off, he's still running roughly the same lap times.”

Theriault will debut his new car this weekend, after testing at Oxford Plains last week and then running Saturday night's 40-lap Late Model feature. He started deep in the 24-car field and finished third – despite not deciding to really “race” other cars until several laps into the event.

He, like Stearns, thinks he's in the best position he's been in to challenge for a TD Bank 250 win. He finished third last season – the youngest podium finisher in the race's history.

“Most people that have met (Mitch and Judy Green), they know that they're great people to work with,” Theriault said. “When they give you their word that they're going to have a car ready, they're going to be ready. We worked right down to the wire – even had some all-nighters on this car. I think it's really paid off.

“I sort of feel sorry for the competition. It's way better than the other car was at Oxford.”

“The biggest thing is that the balance is so good on it,” Stearns said. “With my old car, the littlest thing – miss the stagger by a quarter of an inch, or going from day into night – would take it from being a fifth place car to to being a 25th-place car, and it was awful. It was a completely different animal. This thing here, it slows it up with little changes – but it only goes from a car that can win to being a Top-5 car.”

Last year's Oxford Plains Speedway Rookie of the Year, Chris Coolidge, has posted a pair of career-best second-place finishes in weekly competition at the track this season. Coolidge knows that there are plenty of obstacles to overcome just to qualify for the starting field on Sunday, but he's also extremely happy with the way his No. 72 has performed in the first half of the season.

After not qualifying for the TD Bank 250 as a rookie, he's eager to make the starting grid this time around.

“Last year we tried to qualify in our first year. We had fun and we were competitive, but we just didn't have the luck,” Coolidge said. “We're going to attempt it this year, and this car's going really good thanks to Mitch and Mickey and Crazy Horse and all those guys there. But the key to the 250 is the luck of the draw – that's the biggest key right there.”

Mickey Green hopes the luck is on Crazy Horse Racing's side when it comes to late evening on Sunday. It would be a huge win for a company that really only took off two years ago, once it moved into its new shop in South Paris – just a few miles down the road from Oxford Plains Speedway.

“If we don't run well, then there's something wrong. I'm very confident going into the weekend,” Green said. “These cars just don't fall off, and it's a big thing.

“Winning the 250 is huge. Just huge. Other car builders have won them – and if we could do it in our second year with our own design, that would be huge just huge for us. I'm not going to say it would put us on the map, but it would be a really big deal for us as a group.”

Champion Drivers Returning to Devil's Bowl Speedway for C.J. Richards Memorial


Champion drivers from Devil's Bowl Speedway's past will compete in a showdown-style event in the track's Daredevil division (pictured) at Friday's Carrara Masonry & Concrete C.J. Richards Memorial event.  (MemorEvents photo)

For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                     DBS-071712-1


WEST HAVEN, VT – Some of Devil’s Bowl Speedway’s most accomplished stock car racing champions will climb behind the wheel again at Friday’s C.J. Richards Memorial event presented by Carrara Masonry & Concrete.  All-star drivers from the West Haven, VT half-mile will strap into cars from the track’s Daredevil class for a special showdown as part of the event that features a 67-lap race for the headline NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Bond Auto Parts Modified division.


Among the entrants in the Daredevil event is Butch Jelley of Andover, VT.  Jelley raced at Devil’s Bowl Speedway when Richards opened the track in 1967.  Jelley’s highlights include six consecutive Modified wins in 1969 and the 1975 track championship.  He’ll be joined by past Modified and Late Model standouts Tim LaDuc, Jimmy Ryan, Ray Hoard, Lee Nutting, Fred Little, Charlie Brown, Ralph Bruno, and Don Mattison.  Together, the group accounts for over 150 feature victories and 10 track championships.  The drivers will compete in track-owned Daredevil cars – virtually street-legal race cars with only safety modifications – which offer fans, sponsors, and members of the community the opportunity to race.

“This showdown is something fun and exciting that will really bring C.J. Richards’ legacy to the forefront.  These drivers are the ones that built Devil’s Bowl into what it was under C.J.’s watch,” Devil’s Bowl Speedway owner/promoter Mike Bruno said.  Bruno explained that the event will be run in three parts: A pair of five-car heat races will each qualify two drivers to the final round.  “The cars may not be 600-horsepower Modifieds,” Bruno chuckled, “but I’m sure these guys will drive them like they are.”

The comeback stars are not limited to just the Daredevils, though; Todd Stone of Middlebury, VT returns to the Modifieds after finishing third one week ago in his first start at Devil’s Bowl Speedway since 2009.  In the intermediate Renegade class, former Modified champion Don Miller of Wells, VT will drive a car owned by top racer Frank Monroe, who was sidelined by surgery last month.

Also on the card along with racing for the entry-level Bomber division is a silent auction to benefit the Rutland Regional Medical Center Marrow Donor Program.  Items for bid include autographed memorabilia from local racers Beaver Dragon and Ron Proctor and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick, Mark Martin, and more.  For more information or to place a bid by email, contact Kerry Ellis of the RRMC Marrow Donor Program at kellis@rrmc.org.

Regular general admission for the C.J. Richards Memorial 67 presented by Carrara Masonry & Concrete on Friday, July 20 is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors (62+), and free for children 12 and under.  Gates open at 5:00pm with racing scheduled to begin at 7:30pm.  The C.J. Richards Memorial Vintage Festival presented by 101.5 “The Fox” for classic race cars and hot rods will be held on Saturday, July 21 at 12:00 noon and Sunday, July 22 at 11:00am.  Admission for the two-day show is $20 for exhibitors and competitors, $10 for adults and seniors, and free for kids 12 and under.  Call (802) 265-3112 or email devilsbowlspeedway@gmail.com for more information.

Deuxième de trois épreuves dans l’Ouest Canadien


Trois-Rivières, le 19 juillet 2012 – Louis-Philippe Dumoulin participera à l’événement d’envergure qu’est le Edmonton Indy en Alberta le 22 juillet prochain au volant de la Dodge n°47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare. Après une absence de deux années consécutives, la série NASCAR Canadian Tire est de retour à Edmonton. Le détenteur du titre de Recrue de l'année 2011, ainsi que l’ensemble des pilotes, découvriront le tracé temporaire pour la première fois lors de la séance d’essai supplémentaire du vendredi 20 juillet.

The second of three Western Canadian Events


Trois-Rivieres, July 19th, 2012 – Louis-Philippe Dumoulin will be participating in the esteemed event, Edmonton Indy, this July 22nd in Alberta, behind the wheel of the n°47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare Dodge. After being absent for two consecutive years, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series is making its return to Edmonton. The 2011 Rookie of the Year champion, along with the other drivers, will familiarise themselves with the new temporary track configuration during the additional practice session scheduled for this Friday July 20th.



Reconnu en tant que spécialiste des circuits routiers, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin a fait sa marque lors des trois dernières épreuves (16, 23 juin et 19 juillet) démontrant à ses adversaires qu’il est également un sérieux rival sur ovale. Au volant de la voiture n°47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare, le Québécois apprivoisera la nouvelle configuration de la piste du Edmonton City Centre Airport (Edmonton « 100 »). Le tracé ressemble davantage à un circuit de Formule 1600 : 28 tours, un enchaînement de 13 nouveaux virages rapides et serrés sur 101.66 kilomètres.


« C’est vraiment l’fun que ce soit un nouveau tracé pour tout le monde, surtout que certains pilotes connaissaient très bien l’ancien circuit d’Edmonton. Pour avoir couru dans plusieurs séries sur circuit routier, c’est là que je me sens le mieux et je suis impatient de me retrouver au volant de la voiture n°47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare, d’éprouver la piste et de me préparer pour la course », partage avec enthousiasme l’instructeur de pilotage à l’international.


Plus que deux courses dans l’Ouest et le Trifluvien effectuera un retour en piste sur le tracé qui l’a vu évolué.


« Nous avons un maximum de points à comptabiliser pour arriver en force au Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières et au NAPA200. Avec WeatherTech.ca, connu à travers l’Amérique du Nord, nous pouvons compter sur des voitures fiables en tout temps, prétendre à un top-3 et peut-être même au championnat », partage Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.


Les qualifications du Edmonton City Centre Airport Indy auront lieu à 18h50 le samedi 21 juillet (HNE). Louis-Philippe Dumoulin sera sur la grille de départ à bord de la voiture n°47 WeatherTech Canada/Bellemare, le dimanche 22 juillet à 12h30 (HNE).

Rencontrez Louis-Philippe Dumoulin sur www.weatherTech.ca.


« Passion – Performance – Partenariats »



A renowned road circuit specialist, Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has left his mark during the last three events (June 16th, 23rd and July 19th) demonstrating to fellow competitors that he is also a serious rival on oval circuits. At the wheel of the n°47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare, the Quebecer will assimilate the newly configured circuit at the Edmonton City Center Airport (Edmonton « 100 »). The circuit resembles that of Formula 1600 layout: 28 laps, a series of 13 new fast, tight turns for a total of 101.66 kilometers.


« I find it interesting that this is a new circuit for everyone, especially since certain drivers were very familiar with the old Edmonton circuit. After having raced in numerous different series on road circuits, this is where I feel the best and I can’t wait to find the wheel of the n°47 WeatherTech Canada/ Bellemare, to experience the track and get ready for the race », shares with enthusiasm the International Racing Instructor
