Newsmaker of the Week // Brandon Sheppard

World Of Outlaws Late Model reigning champion Brandon Sheppard marched eastward last week for a three-day swing of races at Lincoln, Williams Grove and Eriez Speedways. To say he was dominant, at least in the first two, is to say it right. Sheppard led every single lap of both features. He had never been at Lincoln before, had just one …

Newsmaker of the Week // Shane Cottle

The Bill Holland Classic for USAC Silver Crown Cars Sunday night at Selinsgrove Speedway was looking for all the world like a green-to-checkered romp for fast time trialer CJ Leary. But lurking in the wings was Shane Cottle. Cottle had time trialed second slowest with a misfire. He blew a tire at the 45-lap mark of the 74-lap feature, pitted, got back …

Newsmaker of the Week / / Kyle Larson

He came, he saw, he conquered.   That’s the legacy Kyle Larson leaves behind after utterly dominating the last half of PA Speedweek 2020, winning four of the last five features, clinching the Series title early, and doing it handily.  It wasn’t for lack of competition. The PA Posse is legendary in its own right as formidable against outsiders. Yet this this PA Speedweek was …
