Lima,Oh – (May 22, 2015) – “Mad Max” Stambaugh chased down Randy Hannagan and won the 25 lap “Memorial Cup” feature for SOD/NRA Sprint cars at Limaland Motorsports Park Friday night in front of a big crowd.
Mike Dunlap and Shawn Dancer would start on the front row of the $2,000 to win event but Randy Hannagan charged from 4th and led the initial circuit. Lap two saw Dunlap bring out the yellow after spinning in turn two.

As the green flew again, Hannagan looked to be the car to beat as he was quickly stretching his lead with 3rd starting Max Stambaugh falling into the runner up spot with Jared Horstman, Dancer and 11th starting Dustin Daggett moving through the field.

Yellow once again appeared for the 11R of Chase Ridenour in turn two on lap four. As racing resumed, laps five through ten found Hannagan, Stambaugh, Horstman, Dancer and Daggett the top five but Devon Dobie was on the move and took 5th on lap twelve.

As the leaders maneuvered through traffic, Stambaugh began reeling in Hannagan and made the pass for the lead on lap seventeen. The #22 of Hannagan pulled even multiple times in the ensuing laps but Stambaugh began to pull away by lap twenty.

As laps were winding down, J.R. Stewart was making a run and got around Dobie. At the checkers it was Stambaugh, Hannagan, Horstman, Stewart and Dobie.

Four heat races were contested for the 31 cars on hand, with Kyle Pitts, Jared Horstman, Randy Hannagan and Max Stambaugh winners. Tim Allison and Ron Blair won the two B mains.

Lake Odessa, MI – (May 1, 2015) – Ryan Ruhl picked up his second consecutive Engine Pro Sprints on Dirt presented by ARP feature event Friday night at I-96 Speedway. Ruhl and Gregg Dalman staged a spectacular race for the lead trading the top spot back and forth before Ruhl took the point with three laps to go and held on for the victory.

“Greg (Dalman) and I had a really great race going there,” said Ruhl following the feature. “I couldn’t quite get by him, and we got close a couple of times, but I finally got a good run through one and two and got by him.”

Andy Teunessen and Craig Karazim started on the front row for the 25-lap feature event with Teunessen leading early. After an early caution for Scott Hull’s spin in turn four Daggett quickly worked his way into the top three after starting in row four and began to run down the leaders. Daggett took the lead on lap 10 for Teunessen and pulled away from the field.

Behind Daggett Gregg Dalman was also making a charge on the bottom of the race track. Using the bottom of the track, Dalman disposed of Teunessen for second and began to pursue Daggett for the lead. By that point though Daggett has amassed a half a track lead.

Then with 10 laps to go Daggett got tangled up in slower traffic and ended up backwards in turn four with Linden Jones, turning the lead over to Dalman. Daggett went to the back of the lead lap cars for the restart.

After the green Dalman and Ruhl began a torrid battle for the lead, racing by side and even making hard contact on the front stretch. With three laps to go Ruhl got a run under Dalman through turns one and two to take the lead. Ruhl followed up taking the lead by slipping through traffic the final three laps to take the victory over Dalman. Daggett was able to race his way up to third with Brett Mann and Teuessen rounding out the top five.
