McDougal Cashes In at Big Chill Finale!!
In Lucas Oil ASCS2 Restricted action at Cowtown's 5th Annual Big Chill finale, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma's Jason McDougal paced the field the start of the 20 lap Restricted main event.
McDougal would lead a single lap under green before leading a couple dozen under caution after a lap two stoppage for a Austin Lambert spin. McDougal would pick up where he left off, only to deal with several stoppages in the first few laps, the most notable being a rather nasty tumble of preliminary night winner Dylan Fox onto turn 3 of the 1/4 track. Fox would emerge both safely and dejected.
The pack would once again get underway with 4 of 20 laps completed. McDougal clearly showed himself the car to beat as he crossed the halfway point with McKenzie Ramey and Aaron Dromgoole in tow.
McDougal's pace would be somewhat troubled by lapped traffic starting on the 12th circuit, but a lap 15 Trey Lambert spin would provide both a close call for the leading pack immediately behind, but more importantly give McDougal the clean air his Factor One glided so cleanly in.
Jason McDougal put away the final 5 laps with little challenge en route to the first Lucas Oil ASCS2 Restricted triumph of his young and blossoming racing career aboard the Factor One, Paul Albers Performance Plus, Lightning Wings, ButlerBuilt, and CSI sponsored # 73 machine.
Decklan Murphy with his trophy, Andy Wojtaszczyk’s stepson finished 2nd in his first heat, won his second heat and finished second in the feature. This was only the 3rd race for Decklan in his new Junior. That grin says it all.
Austin Shores who has run most of the season with the ASCS2 series made his way up to Port City for the second or third time this year. Austin made his way through the field getting to second at the half way mark. Nathan Weida had used his second row starting spot to jump out into the lead on the first lap, Nathan slid up in turn four and that’s all the room Austin would need. Jason McDougal, Nathan Weida and Tucker Klaasmeyer would follow Austin across the finish line. Tucker had an extremely good run as he was going to Sweet Springs to race and they got rained out. He ran the heat with his Sweet Springs gear on and ran fifth and they only took four so that put him in the B feature, where he transferred and came from last to fifth.
This was Austin’s first win at Port City, I’m sure they will be many more.
Jon Taylor would make it three feature wins for Factor 1 in his Sportsman car. I forgot how many wins this make for John this year, I know at one time he had a string going of three in a row.
Cameron Beller was back at the track in Jerry Oakes Factor 1 Junior; Cameron would win his heat and finish third in the feature followed be fellow Factor 1 juniors, Blake Battles and Cole Roberts in 4th and 5th.
Frank Flud once again dominated the Outlaw action at Port coming from his last place starting spot to the front, Frank even had to withstand a couple of yellows which would take the lead away. But it wouldn’t take long for The Legendary Frank Flud would have the lead back. I have lost track on his win total, has to be around 105 feature wins for the 21 yearold.
August 20 Factor 1 Nation report for Texas.

$ 5200 + total payout!
Thank you Factor 1 & Ken Pearson
First off, we just got back from the I-44 Nationals, man was it HOT, but if you didn’t make it you missed some good racing. I have to give Kevin Ake and the track people a lot of credit for taking the time in such hot weather and working the track and giving us a really racy track.
I - 44 Nationals
Man was it hot, both temperature and racing. On practice nite I thought it was going to be bad since the track was so rough. But the crew at I-44 got there act together and they turned that track around for some good 2 groove wide racing and the temp even cooperated and came down. It was great.
Chris Andrews in his blue and yellow machine dominated the non-wing and A class. He might have even swept both nites in both classes, if he didn’t he had one second place finish.
We had the field covered once again, with Austin Shores, Christopher Martin, Jason McDougal, Christian Kinnison,Dalton Sebor, and Cole Hall all there with they’re A games.
Christian Kinnison ran a great race finishing 2nd Austin Shores 3rd Christopher Martin 4th. Jason and Cole would have to go to the rear after getting into some liquid dumped on the track. They both came back thru the 20 car field finishing 9th and 10th but was running consistent laps faster that the leader. Oh well that’s just racing luck.
Frank Flud would lead the field the green flag from the pole, which was not the place to be, the top line would be the fastest and by the time he got to the top he was in third, where he would finish. Kevin Bayer would have to take a 7th row starting spot after winning his heat Friday nite, then blowing a motor in his 2nd qualifier, Kevin raced his way to fifth place. Will Harvey also drove his but off finishing 7th, with a broken left rear shock.
Stanley Kresiel, probably the hottest driver this summer has put together 2 consecutive wins and a 2nd place at Sweet Springs.
Christopher Martin would venture down to Sweet Springs and come home with a 2nd place finish in the restrictor class and would take ole White Lighting in the A class from the back to a 4th place finish
Luke Howard got him another second place finish in his junior sprint, Luke is off racing his asphalt go cart this week in one of the largest cart races of the year.
Riley Kresiel came down to Port City last week after Sweet Springs rained out. Riley didn’t start out so good but his dad Richard got him going good in the B feature with a second place finish. Riley started in the back next to Jason in the A feature. I thought that Jason had his 4th feature win when on lap 7 he was running 2nd and I looked back and Riley had gotten to 6th place three laps later Riley was running 4th and I thought this was going to be really great because the top 5 was all Factor 1 cars. Then a yellow on lap 16 grouped all the cars back up and on the restart the top three cars would all go back to the bottom but Riley took his MX8 to the middle and in 2 laps had the lead. He even had to endure a green white checker restart and never faltered a bit, now his mom was a little nervous. Not very often does an out of towner comes to Port and wins, so this was awesome
Kevin Ruff from Missouri emailed to say his son Sam got his first A Feature WIN in his Factor 1 chassis.
Luke Howard got his first feature win. The second place kid got together with the first place kid at the start and 2nd place kid went into the wall. Luke almost passed first place kid but I am sure his car was binding from the incident but Luke got by him at about five to go.
DecklanMurphy did amazing winning his heat race and finished second in the A main to kid that has been racing jrs for three years lead 6 of 15 laps. He family couldn't be prouder of him. This was either the second or third time Decklan has raced his new Junior.
I-30 Nationals – Kevin Bayer takes 2nd
KB and Terry made their way down to Little Rock for the 8th annual I-30 Nationals earlier this month. This is one of the big races of the year in the nation for the outlaw class. If my memory serves me right Tim McKenzie started 18th or 20th and made his way up to 8th place.
Bob Bouriff won his 129th A feature at Miami County
Michael Hall took home the money in the A Class at Fort Cobb
In the last three weeks Tyler has dominated both the A class and non wing class at Port City. He has back-to-back wins one in the non-wing class and one in the A class; actually he has swept 2 weeks in a row. In the A class he has a second and a third in the last three weeks. Last week Tyler normally a cushion pusher finessed it around the bottom (catfish style) for his third win of the year.
Wyatt Burks Topeka, Kansas, won for the second week in row at Little Sunset speedway in Greenwood, NE. Weldon Bufford dominated the restrictor class by sweeping his heat and feature. Mike Buford, Weldon’s grandfather ran impressive second in his MX9
Hunter Fisher in his MX9 would pull off a come from behind win on his birthday for his first win of the season. Cole Roberts looking once again very fast, would take his second feature win in the junior sprint class Ryan Cody got his first ever A feature win in the Sportsman class
Christopher Martin, Des Moines, Iowa put on a hell of show in the A Class running the cushion only to come up a few inches short for the win. Christopher normally competes in the restrictor class Jared Cech got Factor 1 our first Feature win in the state of Wisconsin this year, doing so in dominating fashion by winning by a half a lap. Sara Elrod leads Maximum Dirt driver standings for the state of Indiana in the outlaw class.

ALEX SEWELL WINS DOUBLE A FEATURES 2 WEEKS IN A ROW.
Alex Sewell in the Sewell Mechanical#73 MX11 has totally dominated the Stock Class and non-wing class this year. Sweeping the last two weeks in both classes at Port City Raceway.What’s amazing is he was sidelined the first week with a clutch failure after getting to the front.
FLUD WINS OUTLAW FEATURE AT PORT CITY.
Frank had to pass for the lead three times, each time a yellow would come out and he would have to go back. But the fourth time there was no yellow and he went on to win his 99th feature win. As fast as he’s been all year it wouldn’t surprise me that he got his 100th win this week, if we don’t get rained out.
BOBBY SPRINGER WINS A FEATURE AT I-44
Bobby piloted his Factor 1 into the winnners circle at I-44 Speedway in Oklahoma City. COLE ROBERTS SWEEPS FOR 1ST WIN IN HIS NEW FACTOR 1 JR SPRINT.
Cole won has been fast all year; just to come up short at the end won his first A feature. I think he has won all his heat races he has been in this year. This win goes along with Cameron Bellers win last week. Other than one feature, Factor 1 Juniors have totally dominated the class
BAYER DOMINATES PORT CITY With the weather playing hell with our racing across the country, a few places did get some races in. At Port city it was the Kevin Bayer show. Kevin totally dominated the Outlaw class coming from his last place starting spot to take the feature win, last weeks feature winner, Frank Flud followed in second.Outlaw rookie Will Harvey was impressive with his third place finish. They will travel this week to the ASCS2 show in South Coffeyville. KB will do double duty in the midget
Buford Sweeps Gulf coast Speedway
Weldon Buford started this year off like he ended last year winning both his heats and A feature in the Restrictor Class. Weldon will be running six more races in the restricted class before moving up to the A-Class.
Elrod , Bourff and Rose dominate Peru, Ind.
Sara Elrod takes home her first feature win of the year with a win in the Outlaw class at Peru. I hear she made it interesting having to go to the rear after an incident with another car. Sara then put her car on the cushion and came back to the front again.
Bob Bourff, (I think this was his first outing of the year,) doing triple duty in the non-wing, outlaw and senior classes. He had some mechanical trouble with his outlaw so he parked it. Bob took his old faithful #97 to the win in Senior division.
Brandon Rose also took his first feature win in the non-wing class

The Schmidt’s and Oakes made the trip down the turnpike to run the Kid Sprint series at I-44 and Ft.

Blake Battles came home with his best finish of the year with a third place finish.
