ERIE, MI (June 25, 2019) – NEFCO, North East Fabrication Company, Jonesville, Michigan, has partnered with Lane Automotive Sprints On Dirt powered by King Engine Bearings / MSD Performance / Motul to give drivers with 360 engines a chance to win an extra bonus at all SOD races throughout the rest of 2019.

The NEFCO Top 360 Award will pay the top finishing 360 $100 and a unique 10” diameter laser-cut medal for the winner. When SOD returns to Butler on Saturday, July 6th for the $2,500-to-win Independence 25, the NEFCO Top 360 Award will be a whopping $500!

SOD’s “Beyond Limits” format strives to let drivers showcase their skills instead of their horsepower. Ryan Ruhl won the first SOD race under the format with his 360 on the big Hartford Motor Speedway. Ruhl and Zane DeVault have shown what a talented driver can do with a 360. Canada’s Dylan Westbrook drove to an impressive 2nd place finish in the COMP Cams End-of-the-Year Shootout at Berlin Raceway last year in his 360.

NEFCO is primarily a custom metal fabrication company and sells metals such as steel, aluminum, and alloys. It also sells welding equipment, supplies, and gases. NEFCO’s state-of-the-art services include shearing, cutting, bending, welding, machining, and design. Get a glimpse of NEFCO’s impressive capabilities at https://is.gd/NEFCO360_SOD

Boston Mead (3rd), Josh Turner (2nd), Chad Blonde (winner)

ERIE, MI (June 23, 2019) – Saturday brought sunny skies, warm temperatures and exciting racing for Lane Automotive Sprints On Dirt powered by King Engine Bearings / MSD Ignition / Motul at Butler Speedway and Chad Blonde battled past early leader Josh Turner to drive off to the win.

Pole sitter Turner took the lead on the start over outside front row starter Jay Steinebach.  The action was hot and heavy behind the leaders with several cars battling for third through seventh. Turner opened up a slight lead as Steinebach slipped over the top in turn two and dropped several positions.  Turner maintained his lead through a red flag when Luke Daugherty got on his side in turn four and several cautions.  Blonde worked his way forward from his seventh starting spot and began to challenge Turner.  With the leaders utilizing the bottom of the track, Blonde powered into the lead on lap 17 and drove off to the win. 

The racing was intense and passing was plentiful.  Daryl Shaffer was MAHLE / KSE Hard Charger, advancing 9 positions.  Thomas Schinderle (+8), Ryan Ruhl, driving his own 360 #16 (+7), and winner Blonde (+6) showed how exciting and competitive the racing was.

The non-stop heat races started the night of close racing as Quentin Blonde took the Engler Machine & Tool Heat over Turner and Jacob Hesson who started ninth.  Jay Steinebach won the King Engine Bearings Heat with Zane DeVault finishing second and Boston Mead third.

It was announced that SOD will return to Butler on Saturday, July 6th for the $2,500-to-win Independence 25.  With last night’s great racing in mind, the I-25 should be a great one!
