DELP, HANSEN EARN FIRST EQ WILD WEST TOUR FEATURE WINS



VERNAL, Utah (June 27 & 28, 2014)-
By: IMCA.com– Two veterans of the EQ Cylinder Heads Wild West Tour made long-awaited stops in victory lane when the series for IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds visited Diamond Mountain Speedway.

Casey Delp won his first tour feature on Friday at Vernal. Chase Hansen accomplished the same feat on Saturday, also earning $1,000 and joining Delp as a new candidate on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot.

Point leader Justen Yeager came into the series weekend with a three-race winning streak and ran second both nights.

Michael Hale, Jake Donnelly and Eddie Belec completed Friday’s top five. Belec,
Jeff Hunter and Bert Beech ended third, fourth and fifth, respectively, on Saturday.

Delp counted three runner-up showings in 36 career Wild West Tour starts coming into the weekend. He started sixth in Friday’s 30-lapper, took the lead from Hale on the 14th circuit and held off three-time series champion Yeager for the checkers.

Yeager peeked inside as the front pair ran in lapped traffic the final four circuits.

“I went checkers or wreckers going into turn three on the last lap,” Delp said. “I knew Justen was right there and I wasn’t going to give it to him that easily.”

“This win has been a long time coming. We’ve always been right there so it was due time. I’m pretty happy,” added Delp, who has yet to finish outside the top seven in six WWMT starts this year. “This 2011 Victory still has a little speed in it. It’s the most consistent car I’ve ever had.”

Hansen is the iron man of the Wild West Tour. He’s entered all 93 series events, qualified for 81 of the features and had half a dozen second-place finishes before racing to career win number one.

After swapping the lead early on with Belec, he moved to a higher line and led all the way to the night two checkers

“It was a huge relief to finally win. It’s been a long time to finally get it,” Hansen admitted, “and it gives us a lot more confidence that we can win again.”

The next EQ Cylinder Heads Wild West Tour doubleheader is Friday and Saturday, July 25 and 26 at Great Basin Raceway in Ely, Nev.

YEAGER SWEEPS THE WEEKEND AT SWEETWATER SPEEDWAY!



ROCK SPRINGS, Wyoming (May 30 & 31, 2014)-
By: IMCA.com – He’s always been consistent, but it’s been a while since Justen Yeager put together an EQ Cylinder Heads Wild West Tour winning streak.

He’s hoping the current trend continues.

Yeager swept IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified series events at Sweetwater Speedway, earning $1,000 for each of his Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31 victories.

“It’s always good to win at home,” said the three-time tour champion, who took the opening night checkers ahead of Eddie Belec and Jeremy Frenier, then topped the Saturday show ahead of Belec and Jeff Hunter. “It was nice to have those Colorado guys come up here. They’re all really good drivers and it’s fun to race with them.”

After starting 12th on Friday, Yeager used higher and lower lines to catch up with Jeremy Frenier. He moved to the middle groove to pass for the lead on the ninth of 30 circuits.

“You could race every inch of that track,” said Yeager, pressured by Belec and Frenier while the three ran with lapped traffic late in the contest.

Better luck with the draw put him inside row two for the initial start on Saturday. Yeager caught Bert Beech for the lead on the second lap.

He found himself eyeball to eyeball with Hunter following a restart with six to go, then pulled ahead to win by three car lengths.

“The track was awesome again,” he said. “You could race all over that thing.”

Yeager also won three straight series races in 2008 and 2009. He last won both weekend events at the same track in 2011 during a successful visit to Fairgrounds Speedway.

Casey Delp and Hunter completed Friday’s top five. David Karst was fourth and Delp ran fifth on Saturday.

Already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, Yeager was the hard charger on Friday. Those honors went Saturday to Tim Dower, who finished 10th after starting 23rd.

Next on the EQ Cylinder Heads Wild West Tour schedule is the June 27-28 doubleheader at Diamond Mountain Speedway in Vernal, Utah.

DONNELLY WINS FIRST, YEAGER WINS FIFTEENTH WWMT FEATURE AT MCR!



DELTA, Utah (May 2 & 3, 2014)-
By: IMCA.com – A first-time winner and a regular visitor to victory lane prevailed when the EQ Cylinder Heads Wild West Tour opened at Millard County Raceway.

Jake Donnelly regained the lead from Justen Yeager and took the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified checkers for his career first tour triumph on Friday.

Yeager, a three-time series champion, battled Casey Delp and Randy Artz en route to the front, then captured his 15th career WWMT win ahead of Michael Hale on Saturday.

Both 30-lap features paid $1,000 to win. Donnelly is new to the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot while Yeager was already vote eligible.

The high line took Donnelly to the front twice. He used the top to pass Bryan Wordelman for the lead on the first lap, then built up a big lead before becoming mired in lapped traffic.

Yeager caught up and passed Donnelly before the pair came up on a lapped car late in the race. Yeager went low while Donnelly found better grip higher up on the oval and shot back ahead.

He beat Yeager to the stripe by a couple car lengths. Hale, Wordelman and Bert Beech com­pleted the top five.

“We’ve been following the tour for five years. This has been a long time coming,” said Donnelly. “I thought we’d probably win one this year but I was surprised to win on opening night.”

“It was a great weekend. We couldn’t have asked for more,” he added. “Everything worked out perfectly for us.”

“Jake had the fast car. He earned it,” said Yeager. “It was a good race and I was glad to see him win.”

Donnelly’s victory came in his 33rd career series start. His best finish prior to Friday had been se­cond, last July at Diamond Mountain Speedway.

Yeager picked up IMCA career win number 131 on Saturday.

He’d started eighth and worked his way up to duel with Delp and Artz. Delp’s pass for the lead was negated by caution before Yeager made his move to the front following a restart with nine circuits left.

Another yellow waved with four to go. Hale tried to contend but ran out of laps and settled for se­cond. Donnelly, Artz and Brian Ungaro finished third through fifth, respectively.

“We had an awesome track on Saturday,” said Yeager, much impressed with the new banking. “It was just a great, great track to race on.”

The tour is at Sweetwater Speedway in Rock Springs, Wyo., for Friday and Saturday, May 30 and 31 shows.
