Martin led the majority of Saturday's 40-lap feature only to lose the lead on a late race restart. Martin though made a thrilling last lap, turn four pass of Colton Flinner to win the biggest race of his career in the "Bill Hendren Memorial"!

(Pulaski, PA)...While rain claimed some Friday and Sunday events, it was still another busy weekend for the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Racing Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants. Cameron Campbell and Chad Sines captured their career first wins in weekly RUSH Late Model action; meanwhile, Ben Policz and Austin Allen won their first races of the season.

Zain Harvey also claimed his career first RUSH Pro Mod victory in weekly action. Kole Holden remained hot in the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds winning his second straight at Raceway 7.

JEREMY WONDERLING SWEEPS THE WEEKEND FOR THE HOVIS RUSH LATE MODELS CAPTURING THE 1ST EVER FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR EVENT AT KNOX AS HIS 3RD STRAIGHT WIN IS HIS SERIES LEADING 5TH OF 2023

By Mike Leone June 11, 2023

(Knox, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants wrapped up a two-race weekend for the Flynn's Tire Touring Series in western Pennsylvania on Sunday evening at Knox Raceway. After a successful first ever event on Saturday night at Marion Center Raceway, race teams traveled less than 60 miles northwest to Knox Raceway for the first ever event there. Race #11 was at the former Sportsman's Speedway, which was revived and refurbished by second year owner Brian Steinman. Despite a high likelihood of rain, the track went on with the show, started early and raced through on and off sprinkles and drizzle, and the entire four-division program was completed by 7 p.m. just as the rain began.

One night after making a last lap pass to win at Marion Center, Jeremy Wonderling left little doubt on Sunday at Knox. Wonderling led from green-to-checkered and was never challenged over the 30-lap event to go in the record books as the first ever Flynn's Tire Touring Series winner at the 1/3-mile Clarion County oval. Last year, Wonderling matched the record with four straight Tour wins, Sunday's $3,000 victory was Wonderling's third straight and Series leading fifth of the season. Wonderling has now won 9 of the last 16 events dating back to last season!

By Mike Leone June 10, 2023

(Marion Center, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants headed to Marion Center Raceway on Saturday night for the first ever Flynn’s Tire Touring Series race at the historic ¼-mile dirt track.

Jeremy Wonderling led only one lap on Saturday night, but it was the one that counted. After hounding Joe Martin for 20 laps, Wonderling made a last lap pass and survived a turn four bonsai move by Martin that left Martin spun out to capture his Series leading fourth victory of the season in front of a packed grandstand. The three-time champion and current points leader earned $3,000 for his eighth win over the last 15 Flynn’s Tire Touring Series events dating back to last season!

JEREMY WONDERLING BECOMES 3RD DIFFERENT WINNER IN 3 HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN'S TIRE TOUR RACES RUN ALL-TIME AT BRADFORD WITH SERIES LEADING 3RD VICTORY OF 2023

By Mike Leone May 28, 2023

(Bradford, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants wrapped up a beautiful three-race Memorial Day weekend for the Flynn’s Tire Touring Series on Sunday evening at Bradford Speedway. It marked the second straight year track promoter and former RUSH Late Model racer Dennis Cummings hosted the holiday weekend finale at the historic, tight 1/4-mile bullring where Sunday night City Chevrolet Weekly Series action takes place for the RUSH Late Models and RUSH Pro Mods. All nine scheduled Flynn's Tire Touring Series events have now been completed during the 2023 season.

Jeremy Wonderling certainly knows how to get around Bradford Speedway; however, in the two prior Tour races run at the tricky track, it was fellow New York standouts Bryce Davis and John Waters victorious. Neither Davis nor Waters were in competition on Sunday so a new winner was guaranteed. Wonderling was certainly the favorite and he lived up to the billing passing Kurt Stebbins on lap three and holding off 13-year-old phenom Brock Pinkerous for his Series leading third victory of 2023 worth $3,000.

BRYCE DAVIS ENDS A NEAR 6-YEAR FLYNN’S TIRE TOURING SERIES WINLESS DROUGHT WITH $3,000 HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL VICTORY AT GENESEE TO BECOME 6TH DIFFERENT WINNER IN 8 RACES

By Mike Leone May 27, 2023

(Batavia, NY)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants headed to Genesee Speedway on Saturday in night two of the three-race Memorial Day weekend swing throughout the north for the Flynn’s Tire Touring Series. Race #8 of the 2023 season was the first and only appearance of the season at the Genesee County Fairground oval promoted by Kurt and Bonnie Stebbins, which hosts RUSH Late Model City Chevrolet Weekly Series action.

One night after getting caught up in an accident with a lapped car battling for the lead, Bryce Davis led all 30 laps of the feature thwarting challenges by last year’s Genesee May 28 winner, Chad Homan, to end a near six-year winless drought with the Flynn’s Tire Touring Series! Davis’ last win on the Tour came back on July 2, 2017 at Bradford Speedway during his championship season. Davis became the sixth different winner in eight Tour races this season with his $3,000 victory.

JOE MARTIN SWEEPS THE NIGHT AT OUTLAW FOR 1ST HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN’S TIRE TOUR WIN OF 2023; SETS NTR IN QUALIFYING, WINS HIS HEAT, DASH & $3,000 “GARY MONTGOMERY MEMORIAL” FEATURE

By Mike Leone May 26, 2023

(Dundee, NY)...After two weeks off, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Late Model Flynn’s Tire Touring Series returned to action on Friday night at Outlaw Speedway kicking off a three-race weekend over the Memorial Day holiday. The event was the first Flynn’s Tire Tour event in four years at the fast Dundee, NY facility following a COVID-19 cancellation in 2020 and rain outs each of the past two years. It was the fourth annual “Gary Montgomery Memorial”, which honored a man that was synonymous with racing all over the Upstate New York State Region. After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Montgomery passed away in November 2016.

Joe Martin certainly hadn’t gotten off to the start of the season that he had hoped for. Martin entered 2023 finishing runner-up in Flynn’s Tire Touring Series points each of the last three seasons, but had only been able to record two top five finishes in the first six races. That changed after a clean sweep of the night at Outlaw. Martin set a new track record in qualifying, won his FK Rod Ends heat race, won the Sunoco Dash, and then led every lap of the 30-lap feature holding off a valiant effort by Mike Wonderling for the $3,000 feature victory. It could be a good omen for Martin as each of the first three winners of the “Gary Montgomery Memorial” have gone on to win the Tour title!

$6000+ HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL WEEKEND SWEEP FOR JEREMY WONDERLING AS SUNDAY'S VICTORY IS HIS 1ST AT ERIEZ IN FLYNN'S TIRE TOURING SERIES COMPETITION

By Mike Leone May 14, 2023

(Erie, PA)...The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants opened the 2023 season at Eriez Speedway on a chilly Sunday evening in the first of two appearances for the Flynn's Tire Touring Series at the northwest Pennsylvania dirt track owned by the Alexander Family. A solid field of 37 cars turned out for the Mother's Day special with six new cars that didn't compete on Saturday at Stateline bringing the two-night car count total to 48 competitors.

Last September 23-24 at Genesee Speedway, Jeremy Wonderling swept the weekend for more than $6,000 during his four-race Flynn's Tire Touring Series win streak. On Sunday night, Wonderling capped off another $6,000+ weekend sweep leading from green-to-checkered for his first career Touring Series victory at Eriez, which came one night after his fourth "Bill Law Memorial" win in six tries at Stateline Speedway.

JEREMY WONDERLING BECOMES A 4-TIME WINNER OF THE “BILL LAW MEMORIAL” IN 6 TRIES AT STATELINE FOR HIS 1ST HOVIS RUSH LATE MODEL FLYNN’S TIRE TOUR WIN OF 2023

By Mike Leone May 13, 2023

(Busti, NY)...After a month off following a successful 3C Graphix “Battle of the Bay” Speedweek, the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Dirt Late Model Series presented by Born2Run Lubricants headed north to Stateline Speedway for Flynn’s Tire Touring Series race #5 of the 2023 season. The event paid tribute to the late Law, who had the first Crate Late Model in the Northeast more than 16 years ago. Law was a huge supporter of racing in the region and helped kick-start the racing career of his grandson, Kyle Murray, who currently competes in a RUSH Late Model. The 42 cars on hand missed the all-time record high car count at Stateline by just one, which occurred in the 2021 event.

Jeremy Wonderling has taken quite the liking to the “Bill Law Memorial”. Wonderling started third, passed Joe Martin on lap 11 in lapped traffic, and pulled away late to capture the event win for the fourth time in six tries! Wonderling’s first Flynn’s Tire Tour win of the season propelled the three-time champion into the points lead for the first time since his last championship in 2020. The 30-lap event went caution-free in 9:23.661.

Several rain showers throughout the afternoon and early evening tried to put a damper on the event, but track owner Greg Gunter pushed on and had the track ready to go about four after the scheduled start time. Fifteen new cars on Saturday night brought the total count to 61 different cars from seven states plus Ontario, Canada that competed in Speedweek. It was the first time since the inaugural Speedweek that all four nights were completed. Winchester has completed their Speedweek event all five years with 41 or more cars.

Charlie Sandercock has won Flynn’s Tire Touring Series events in two Canadian provinces, but had never won one across the border in the United States. That changed on Saturday night as Sandercock passed Bryce Davis on lap four and survived several restarts throughout the 30-lap event to become the first Canadian to ever win a feature in the 88 years at the historic Winchester Speedway! Sandercock’s fourth career Tour victory at four different speedways was worth $3,000; meanwhile, after mechanical gremlins in his heat race, Kyle Hardy charged from 23rd to third to earn his second $1,000 3C Graphix “Battle of the Bay” Speedweek title in three years!

Mid-Atlantic Late Model standout Kyle Hardy celebrated career win #100 after a charge from the seventh starting spot taking the lead on lap 12 from Trevor Collins and then kept him at bay throughout the remainder of the 30-lap feature.
