Jeep Van Wormer Set for Several Weekends Away from the Track Following I-96 Top Ten

 

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN)  The Iron Motorsports team and driver Jeep Van Wormer entered a pair of $5,000 to win special events on June 21-22 at Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio and I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan.  On Saturday evening at Oakshade, the 25th Annual 'Barney Oldfield Race' took place and Jeep earned the third transfer spot through his heat race to gain access into the 40-lap feature.  After starting the A-Main from the outside of the seventh row, Jeep unfortunately got hit in the left front by another competitor early in the race, which caused him to suffer a flat tire and ultimately retire in the twenty-second position.

 

At I-96 on Sunday night, Jeep competed in his first UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals program of 2014, as another $5,000 paycheck was on the line.  The Pinconning, Michigan ace laid down the third fastest lap in his group during qualifying prior to finishing third in his stacked heat race - despite slipping over the banking at one point.  After rolling off from the inside of the fourth row in the 40-lapper, Jeep battled hard during the caution-free affair and eventually wound up ninth in the final rundown.  Full results from both Oakshade and I-96 can be accessed online at www.dirtondirt.com.

 

The #55 team is now set to enjoy three straight weekends away from the racetrack, as Jeep has no current plans to race before July 16.  Iron Motorsports will head to the Buckeye State of Ohio from July 16-19 for the final four races of the 2014 UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour.  Jeep will make stops at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio, Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, Ohio, Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, and Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio, as a total of $25,000 in top prizes will be up for grabs.  You can keep up with the latest schedule plans concerning Iron Motorsports by pointing your web browser to www.jeepvanwormer.com.

Jeep Van Wormer Claims Trio of Top Tens During Dirt Late Model Dream Weekend

 

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN)  Jeep Van Wormer and his Iron Motorsports team invaded the legendary Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from June 5-7 for the 20th edition of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.'  The three-day extravaganza at the 1/2-mile, high-banked speedplant kicked off with a pair of Twin 25 preliminary programs.  On Thursday night, Jeep ran second in his heat race prior to claiming an eighth place performance in his $2,500 to win feature event.  A similar story unfolded for the Pinconning, Michigan driver on Friday evening, as Jeep once again finished second in heat race action before ultimately claiming an eighth place effort in his $5,000 to win main event.

 

When Saturday rolled around at the "Big E," all eyes were fixated on the hefty $100,000 top prize in the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.'  Jeep scored the win in the all-important sixth heat race over Jason Feger, Matt Miller, and Dale McDowell, which locked him into the pole position for the 100-lap crown jewel main event.  While he was unable to lead a lap in this year's version of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream,' Jeep raced all over the top ten during the extra-distance affair before winding up ninth in the final finishing order.  Complete results from the long weekend at Eldora Speedway can be accessed by clicking on www.eldoraspeedway.com.

 

"It was a strong, consistent weekend for us and we made strides all three days on our car," quoted Van Wormer earlier today.  "I felt pretty good after our heat race win on Saturday and was excited to sit on the pole in the Dirt Late Model Dream.  But, we just missed on a couple of small things with the car and our tires weren't quite cut up where they needed to be, which caused them to overheat. Those are things you put in the notebook for September and hopefully we will be a little better in the World 100."

 

Following the 'Dirt Late Model Dream,' the #55 team will enjoy the upcoming June 13-14 weekend away from the racetrack, while looking forward to their next two events.  On Saturday, June 21, the American Late Model Series (ALMS) will sanction the 25th Annual 'Barney Oldfield Race' at Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio.  Then on Sunday, June 22, the I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan will play host to the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals Series.  Both of these shows will pay $5,000 to the winner.  You can keep up with Jeep Van Wormer's latest schedule plans by pointing your web browser to www.jeepvanwormer.com.

Jeep Van Wormer Claims First Victory of Young 2014 Season in Home State!

 

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN)  Jeep Van Wormer and his Iron Motorsports team celebrated in victory lane for the first time in 2014 on Friday evening, May 2 in a rare visit to Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, Michigan!  After the 'Southern 100' was cancelled at Southern Ohio Speedway, the #55 team loaded up for Tri-City to compete in the track's season opening event. Jeep won his heat race in preliminary action, which lined him up starting from the outside of the front row in the A-Main.  The Pinconning, Michigan native then dominated the feature to claim the $1,055 payday in the weekly show over Kris Patterson, Jr. and Alex Hupert.  Complete results from Tri-City Motor Speedway can be accessed by pointing your web browser to www.tricityracetrack.com.

 

"It felt good to get a win last Friday at Tri-City Motor Speedway," quoted Van Wormer earlier this week.  "We had every intention of going to Southern Ohio Speedway, but then when they canceled, we wanted to go somewhere and race.  The next few weeks are going to be busy at work and I will be traveling out of town, so everyone on the team really wanted to go somewhere before we took a little time off.  Everything worked really well at Tri-City, as I won the heat race and then set sail from the outside of the front row in the feature.  I have to thank everyone that is associated with the Iron Motorsports team - especially my mom and dad, family, crew, and sponsors!"

 

With Jeep enduring a hectic work schedule the next few weeks, the #55 team is slated to enjoy the next two weekends away from the racetrack.  The next event that Jeep has committed to is a $2,000 to win American Late Model Series (ALMS) battle at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on Sunday, May 25.  This show will be the final tune-up before the $100,000 'Dirt Late Model Dream' weekend at the "Big E" on June 5-7.  Additional information on the 'Johnny Appleseed Classic' on May 25 can be obtained by visiting www.eldoraspeedway.com.

Jeep Van Wormer Starts 2014 Campaign with Strong Seventh Place Outing at Brownstown

 

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) Jeep Van Wormer and his #55 Iron Motorsports team kicked off their 2014 racing season on Saturday evening, March 22 at the legendary Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again presided over the 17th edition of the 'Indiana Icebreaker' and 45 competitors piled into the pit area for the $10,000 to win showdown at the 1/4-mile fairgrounds oval. Jeep started off his night by clicking off the third quickest lap in Group B during qualifying prior to placing second in his heat race behind only prelim victor Scott Bloomquist.

 

In front of a huge standing-room-only crowd, Jeep started the 50-lap main event from the outside of the third row. The Pinconning, Michigan star quickly vaulted up to third in the opening laps by utilizing the top groove of the famed speedplant. Jeep eventually lost a few spots during the remainder of the caution-free affair, but was still able to record a strong seventh place performance in his 2014 season lid lifter. Complete results from the 'Indiana Icebreaker' can be found online at www.lucasdirt.com.

 

"It was a good run for us at Brownstown to start out our season," quoted Van Wormer earlier this week. "We haven't raced there the past few years, so it was good to get back to a place that I really enjoy. The car was great all night long and I thought I had something for them early in the feature. I used the outside groove to get up to third in the first few laps, but that bottom was just too good all night long. I have to thank all of my sponsors for their continued support heading into the new season and especially one of my newest sponsors Knochel Oil Company."

 

Next up for the #55 team will be a trip to the Land of Lincoln on March 28-29. The LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois will play host to a pair of special events this upcoming weekend, which will make up the 3rd Annual 'Thaw Brawl.' A $2,000 top prize has been established for Friday's 35-lap feature event, while Saturday's 75-lapper boasts a hefty $15,000 winner's check. Each program will be sanctioned by both the American Late Model Series (ALMS) and UMP DIRTcar Series.

Iron Motorsports Closes Out 2013 Racing Season with $50k DTWC at Portsmouth

 

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN)  Jeep Van Wormer and the Iron Motorsports team wrapped up their 2013 campaign on October 18-19 in the 33rd Annual 'Dirt Track World Championship' at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio.  The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again presided over the $50,000 to win crown jewel event, which drew a strong 79 car field to the southern Ohio speedplant.  On Friday night, Jeep laid down the second quickest lap in Group A during the qualifying session and later placed second in his loaded heat race behind only prelim victor Steve Shaver.

 

When business really picked up on Saturday evening at PRP, Jeep started the 100-lap 'Dirt Track World Championship' from the inside of the fifth row.  The Pinconning, Michigan ace was racing hard inside of the top ten early in the extra-distance affair before a broken shock caused him to retire from the race.  Jeep was relegated to a disappointing twenty-fifth place performance in the season-ending DTWC.  Full results from Portsmouth can be viewed online at www.lucasdirt.com.

 

The #55 Iron Motorsports team entered twenty (20) events during the course of their 2013 racing season.  Jeep reached victory lane on three (3) different occasions, while also racking up eight (8) Top Fives and eleven (11) Top Tens.  His wins came in an ALMS show ($2,500) at Winston (MI) Speedway on April 27, a World of Outlaws Late Model Series event ($10,000) at Winston (MI) Speedway on August 16, and a 'World 100' preliminary race ($5,000) at Eldora (OH) Speedway on September 5.  You can view all of Jeep's finishes for the year by logging ontowww.jeepvanwormer.com.

 

"We had a good season and if not for some mechanical issues here and there, we could have had a really great year," stated Van Wormer via telephone this week.  "I wish we could have finished at Portsmouth over the weekend because I was battling right there with Jason (Feger) and Jimmy (Owens) early in the race and they wound up in the top five.  It would have been awesome to end the year on a high note with a run like that, but I am proud of our team and what we accomplished in a limited schedule.  I have to thank my family, my crew, my fans, and all of my sponsors for their support and we will get our stuff ready for 2014!"

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN)  The Iron Motorsports team rolled into the dirt-covered Berlin Raceway in Marne, Michigan on September 20-21 for a huge World of Outlaws Late Model Series extravaganza.  Following a rain-out of Friday's racing action, the entire show was condensed into a one-day, $15,000 to win program on Saturday.  Jeep Van Wormer started his night by clicking off the third fastest lap in Group B during the WOOLMS qualifying session.

 

Jeep then finished a strong second in his heat race behind only prelim winner Darrell Lanigan and later drew the fifth starting spot for the 'Down & Dirty 75.'  The Pinconning, Michigan ace ran amongst the top five early in the 75-lapper, but wound up suffering problems (hit inside utility tire) and retired after only 62 circuits due to a flat tire.  Jeep was ultimately paid for seventeenth at the pay window following the 'Down & Dirty 75.'  Complete results from Berlin Raceway can be viewed online at www.woolms.com.

 

The #55 team is now eyeing a weekend off from racing action on September 27-28, but will return to competition the following weekend.  Next up will be the annual 'UMP Nationals' at the hallowed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on Saturday evening, October 5.  A full show is on tap for the Late Models headlined by a $5,000 to win main event.  In recent years, Jeep won the 'UMP Nationals' in 2011, while he finished a strong fifth in last year's version of the storied race.  Additional information concerning the "Big E" can be located by clicking on www.eldoraspeedway.com.

Jeep Van Wormer Wins Twin 25 Leading into World 100; Berlin Next!

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) Jeep Van Wormer and his #55 team made the journey to the 
hallowed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from September 5-7 for the 43rd edition
of the fabled 'World 100.' The expanded three-day weekend kicked off with a pair
of $5,000 to win Twin 25s. On Thursday night, Jeep won his heat race in preliminary
action and later scored his third feature win of the 2013 racing season. Jeep grabbed
the lead early in the 25-lapper and drove to the $5,000 triumph over Bub McCool,
Tim McCreadie, Darrell Lanigan, and Matt Miller. At the "Big E" on Friday evening,
the Pinconning, Michigan ace once again won his heat race prior to winding up third
in the 25-lap main event behind only victor Tim McCreadie and runner-up Gregg Satterlee.

The tension ratcheted up in a big way on Saturday, as a $46,000 top prize was up
for grabs in the 'World 100.' Jeep unfortunately hit the turn two wall during 
his heat race, which led to a disappointing fourteenth place finish. After making
extensive repairs to the #55, Jeep received a provisional for having one of the 
best combined finishes from Thursday and Friday's prelims. He started the 100-lap
crown jewel event from the outside of the sixteenth row, passed some cars early 
in the race, but later retired after only 21 circuits on his way to a thirtieth 
place performance. Complete results from the 'World 100' weekend can be found online
at www.eldoraspeedway.com.

"I had a great car all weekend - probably the best I have had at Eldora in a number
of years - and I can't thank my crew enough for all of their hard work," stated 
Van Wormer earlier this week. "We got the win on Thursday night and I honestly feel
like I had another car capable of winning on Friday as well (before finishing third).
Then on Saturday, I just tried to make something happen in the heat race and didn't
quite have enough room to pull it off. I should have been more patient because it
ultimately took away a great opportunity to run well in the World 100. We will go
through everything thoroughly at the shop over the next week or so and get things
ready for Berlin!"

Following Eldora, the Iron Motorsports team plans to take the upcoming September
13-14 weekend off from Dirt Late Model competition. Jeep's next scheduled event
will be the 2nd Annual Keyser Manufacturing 'Down & Dirty 100' at the Berlin Raceway
in Marne, Michigan on September 20-21. The two-day World of Outlaws Late Model Series
extravaganza will start on Friday with qualifying and heat races, while the action
at the dirt-covered asphalt speedplant will culminate with the consolation events
and $20,000 to win A-Main on Saturday. Additional information on the 100-lapper 
at Berlin can be viewed by pointing your web browser to www.woolms.com.

VanWormer & Clanton Open World 100 Weekend With Victories In Twin 25-Lap A-Features
Thursday Night At Eldora Speedway

By Kevin Kovac, WoO LMS P.R. Director

ROSSBURG, OH - Sept. 5, 2013 - Jeep VanWormer of Pinconning, Mich., and Shane Clanton
of Zebulon, Ga., opened the newly expanded World 100 weekend with victories in Thursday
night's Twin 25-lap features at Eldora Speedway.

With the DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned event's 112-car field split in half by time-trial
results, VanWormer captured the caution-free first A-Main for odd-numbered qualifiers
and Clanton added another flourish to his sparkling record at the Big E in the nightcap
reserved for even-numbered qualifiers. Both drivers cashed $5,000 paychecks for 
their triumphs.

A fan favorite well known for his hard-charging style on the high-banked, half-mile
Eldora oval, VanWormer vaulted from the third starting spot to the lead at the initial
start of the first feature and never looked back. He led every lap of a race that
was completed in just under seven-and-a-half minutes.

Bub McCool of Vicksburg, Miss., was able to draw within a few car lengths of VanWormer
as the leader worked lapped traffic in the final circuits but didn't make a serious
bid for the top spot. The World of Outlaws Late Model Series regular settled for
a career-best Eldora finish of second driving a Stapleton Motorsports car.

WoO LMS travelers Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., and Darrell Lanigan of Union,
Ky., finished close together in third and fourth, respectively, and Matt Miller 
of Whitehouse, Ohio, who won two preliminary A-Features during June's Dirt Late 
Model Dream weekend at Eldora, completed the top five.

VanWormer, who has cut back on his normally busy racing schedule this season to 
focus on work commitments (Thursday night's feature marked just his 16th start of
the season), said he hopes that his checkered flag kicks off a memorable weekend
at Eldora. He has started the World 100 A-Main seven times since 2004 with a top
finish of third on two occasions, in 2006 and '08.

"I would hope so," VanWormer said when asked if he feels his Rocket machine is capable
of winning the World 100. "At least I know kind of where to go with my car a little
bit. It definitely felt good tonight."

Clanton, 36, demonstrated his Eldora acumen in the nightcap. He started seventh 
but was up to second behind Dustin Neat of Dunnville, Ky., when a caution flag flew
on lap two. He followed Neat until another caution period, on lap seven, provided
the restart opportunity that put the WoO LMS follower in front for good.

"I knew I was a little better than (Neat)," said Clanton, who assumed command as
lap eight was scored. "I was just biding my time there because we went on a little
softer tire than I think they did. The main thing is just getting the lead and getting
clean air on the nose where it'll stick and you don't slide."

Brian Birkhofer of Muscatine, Iowa, overtook Neat for second on lap 15 and restarted
alongside Clanton after Neat slowed to bring out a caution flag on lap 18. But Birkhofer
only briefly challenged Clanton when the green flag flew for the final time, ultimately
finishing several car lengths behind the victor in second place.

Tyler Reddick, a 17-year-old native of Corning, Calif., who now resides in DuQuoin,
Ill., navigated his way forward from the 16th starting spot to register a career-best
Eldora finish of third. Chris Madden of Gray Court, S.C., finished fourth and 2013
DIRTcar Summer Nationals champion Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill., placed fifth.

One of just five drivers to win both the World 100 (2008) and Dirt Late Model Dream
(2012) crown-jewel events at Eldora, Clanton feels good about his chances of capturing
the $46,000 first-place prize awaiting Saturday night's World 100 winner.

"We struggled the past month," said Clanton, whose last victory was a WoO LMS A-Main
on June 1 at Stateline Speedway in Busti, N.Y. "We tried a lot of different things
and come back to the basic setup we won the Dream with last year. It's working pretty
good right now.

"If the car's like that (on Saturday) I can (win the World 100). When it drives 
that easy, it's easy to be aggressive with the car and make moves early in the race.
I ain't had a car since the Dream that I could do that with. Hopefully everything
will keep going our way."

Ky Harper of Tiffin, Ohio, was the fastest qualifier in Thursday night's multi-car
time trials with a lap of 16.811 seconds. But after the 23-year-old spun a '3' for
the heat-race inversion he failed to qualify for the A-Feature.

Among odd-number qualifiers, heat-race winners were Casey Roberts of Toccoa, Ga.,
McCreadie, Miller, VanWormer, Terry Phillips of Springfield, Mo., and McCool and
the B-Mains were captured by Jerry Bowersock of Wapakoneta, Ohio, Mike Marlar of
Winfield, Tenn., and Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, W.Va.

Even-number qualifier heat wins went to Madden, Kent Robinson of Bloomington, Ind.,
Birkhofer, Sheppard, Dustin Neat and Jimmy Mars of Menomonie, Wis., while the B-Mains
were topped by Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, Ga., Jimmy Owens of Newport, Tenn.,
and Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, Ill.

The World 100 weekend continues on Friday night (Sept. 6) with a second preliminary
night of competition. Time trials will once again split the field into two groups
for heat races, B-Mains and 25-lap features that will pay $5,000 to win.

Heat races for Saturday night's World 100 will be aligned using each driver's best
qualifying lap from time trials on Thursday and Friday, putting plenty of importance
on the second round against the clock on Friday night.

Hot laps are scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. on Friday with time trials to follow.
Racing will get the green flag at 8 p.m.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Jeep Van Wormer Suffers Untimely Flat at Tri-City; Gears Up for World 100

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) The Iron Motorsports team made a last minute decision to 
travel to the Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, Michigan on Friday night, August
23 for a weekly Super Late Model event, which paid $1,055 to the winner. Jeep Van
Wormer started ninth in his heat race and blasted to the front to take the prelim
win. After rolling off from the outside of the fifth row in the main event, Jeep
once again rocketed towards the top spot. Unfortunately, the Pinconning, Michigan
ace suffered an untimely flat tire while running second, which forced him to retire
in the fifteenth position. Complete results from Tri-City Motor Speedway can be
found online at www.tricityracetrack.com.

While the #55 team plans to take the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend off from
Dirt Late Model competition, they will be hard at work preparing for the rapidly
approaching 'World 100.' The event known as "The Granddaddy of Them All" will take
place on September 5-7 at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Thursday 
and Friday night at the "Big E" will feature complete shows with a full slate of
multi-car time trials to split the field into even/odd groups followed by heat 
races, B-Mains, and twin 25-lap main events, each paying $5,000 to the winner. On
Saturday, the time-honored format of six heat races, along with two B-Mains and 
B-Scrambles, will lead into the 100-lap 'World 100,' which boasts a hefty $46,000
top prize and the prestigious globe trophy.

The total posted awards for the 2013 edition of the 'World 100' is a record $283,910.
Jeep, who has been a stalwart throughout his career at the 1/2-mile oval, has transferred
into the fabled 'World 100' on seven different occasions. He has three Top Five 
finishes to his credit including a pair of third place efforts in 2006 and 2008.

Jeep Van Wormer Wows Home State Fans with Winston World of Outlaws Victory!

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) Jeep Van Wormer, of Pinconning, Michigan, claimed his second
career World of Outlaws Late Model Series feature victory on Friday night, August
16 at the Winston Speedway in Rothbury, Michigan! Jeep timed in twelfth quickest
overall during the qualifying session and later moved up to finish second in his
heat race behind only prelim winner Brady Smith. After drawing the third starting
spot prior to the 50-lap main event, Jeep hustled past race long leader Rick Eckert
on lap fourteen to grab the point and led the remainder of the distance to score
the $10,000 triumph in the 'Winston 50.' Following the #55 to the checkers was
Josh Richards, Rick Eckert, Mike Spatola, and Tim McCreadie.

The Iron Motorsports team then rolled into the Merritt Speedway in Lake City, Michigan
on Saturday evening, August 17 for another $10,000 to win World of Outlaws Late 
Model Series tilt. Jeep ran fifth in his stacked heat race and fourth in his B-Main,
but later received a series provisional to advance into the 'Merritt 50.' During
the course of the 50-lapper, Jeep was able to gain ten positions en route to a thirteenth
place performance. Complete results from the WOOLMS doubleheader can be accessed
by pointing your web browser to www.woolms.com.

"That was pretty cool to win a race of that magnitude in my home state," exclaimed
Van Wormer this week via telephone. "A lot of fans came out to support us and it
was awesome to deliver a victory against a very strong field of cars. Everyone 
knows we haven't been racing as much as we did in the past, but big wins like Winston
sure make me want to go out and race more often. I can't thank my family, crew, 
sponsors, and fans enough for all of their support. Hopefully, this victory will
give us some momentum for Labor Day weekend and of course the World 100!"

Jeep and his #55 team will now take the upcoming August 23-24 weekend off from Dirt
Late Model competition. Their next scheduled show is the following Friday, August
30 at the Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
will invade Attica to preside over a $10,000 to win program. You can view the latest

VanWormer Thrills Home-State Fans With Victory In Friday’s NAPA Auto Parts Winston 50 Presented by Keyser Manufacturing

 

Michigan Star’s Second Career World of Outlaws Late Model Series Wins Comes In Front Of Partisan Crowd At Winston Speedway

MONTAGUE, MI – Aug. 16, 2013 - Jeep VanWormer of Pinconning, Mich., gave his home-state fans a reason to cheer with a convincing victory in Friday night’s NAPA Auto Parts Winston 50 Presented by Keyser Manufacturing at Winston Speedway.

After becoming the first – and still only – driver from Michigan to win a World of Outlaws Late Model Series event on Sept. 16, 2007, at LaSalle (Ill.) Speedway, VanWormer turned up the excitement level with his second career checkered flag. The $10,000 triumph came at a track that is a three-and-a-half-hour drive across the Wolverine State from his residence.

“It felt good to go out there and perform and actually do what I always want to do – win in your home state,” said VanWormer, who became the 14 th different winner in 35 events on this year’s WoO LMS. “It feels great to win in front of my home crowd. A lot of fans came out to support us.”

VanWormer, 38, steered his Dickens-powered Rocket car past 2011 WoO LMS champion Rick Eckert of York, Pa., for the lead on lap 14 and never looked back. He beat another former World of Outlaws titlist, Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., to the finish line by 2.120 seconds in one of the most memorable performances of his career.

Eckert, 47, who won last year’s WoO LMS event at Winston, settled for a third-place finish after starting from the outside pole and leading laps 1-13. Mike Spatola of Manhattan, Ill., equaled his career-best WoO LMS finish with a solid fourth-place run and Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., advanced from the 14th starting spot to finish fifth.

A former DIRTcar Summer Nationals stalwart, VanWormer has cut back his racing schedule in recent years due to work commitments. Friday night’s event marked just his 13th start of the season – and first since July 23-24 at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway – but he showed no rustiness while smoothly negotiating the three-eighths-mile oval.

“We haven’t been racing a whole bunch,” said VanWormer, who emerged victorious in his first WoO LMS appearance of 2013. “Somebody made a comment to me today, ‘How am I ever gonna get good if I don’t race?’ Well, I’m not saying this happens (regularly), but we did well tonight. We had the right tires, the right car.”

VanWormer started third in the 50-lapper, but he immediately moved to second when the race began. He chased Eckert until making his winning pass by ducking to the inside exiting turn four and surging ahead as lap 14 was scored.

“We got into lapped traffic and there and (Eckert) kind of was running that middle and I just stayed down on the bottom,” said VanWormer, the fourth non-Outlaw regular to win on the tour in the last six events. “It just worked out that I had a good run coming off of four and got next to (the lapped) Rich Neiser there. I might have roughed him up a little bit, but it was for ten-grand.”

The A-Main’s two caution flags, on lap 16 (for a turn-one tangle involving Tim Fuller of Watertown, N.Y., and John McDonald of Muskegon, Mich.) and lap 33 (for a turn-two spin by Tom Sprague Jr. of Muskegon, Mich.), kept the pressure on VanWormer. But he handled both restarts with little problem.

Richards came closest to threatening VanWormer, pulling up to the leader’s rear bumper shortly after the lap-16 restart. But VanWormer gradually inched away over the ensuing circuits and again after the lap-33 caution period.

“I was keeping my tires warm – and the car was just so good honestly,” said VanWormer, whose only previous feature win this season also came at Winston in an American Late Model Series event on April 27. “We were just making smooth laps and not spinning our tires.”

Richards conceded that VanWormer was the class of Friday night’s field. The young superstar had to satisfy himself with a runner-up finish that pushed his lead in the WoO LMS standings to 58 points over Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., who finished seventh, and 72 points over defending champion Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., who placed sixth.

“He was good,” Richards said of VanWormer. “On that (lap-16) restart we fired off that middle (groove) real well and stayed with him for a few laps. I couldn’t keep running there, though. Me and Eckert were talking after the race about how you could run four or five laps good there, and then the tires would get greasy and you couldn’t move around as much.

“Jeep was really good on the long greens. His car was just rolling through the corners so well.”

Bub McCool of Vicksburg, Miss., finished eighth, steadily moving forward from the 19th starting spot. Brady Smith of Solon Springs, Wis., slipped to a ninth-place finish after running in the top five for most of the race’s first half and Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., faded to 10th at the finish after starting from the pole position.

Twenty-six cars were entered in the event, which was run on a clear and refreshingly cool summer day.

Spatola was quickest in Ohlins Shocks Time Trials, turning a lap of 14.182 seconds to earn his first career WoO LMS fast-time honor.

Heat winners were Frank, Eckert and Brady Smith, and McCool captured the B-Main.

The WoO LMS will conclude its Michigan doubleheader on Saturday night (Aug. 17) at Merritt Speedway in Lake City, which hosts the $10,000-to-win NAPA Auto Parts Merritt 50 Presented by Allstar Performance.

Iron Motorsports Eager for Mudsummer Classic Following Summer Nationals Double Dip

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) Following a long layoff, the Iron Motorsports team jumped
back into Dirt Late Model competition over the July 19-20 weekend in the final
two races of the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour. On Friday night at the Attica
Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, Jeep Van Wormer posted the fastest lap in his group
during the qualifying session and later placed second in heat race action. After
starting the $5,000 to win main event from the inside of the fourth row, Jeep quickly
moved up to fifth in the running order prior to retiring on lap nine due to motor
woes. The Pinconning, Michigan ace wound up a disappointing twenty-first in the
final rundown of the 40-lapper at Attica.

At the Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio on Saturday evening, the popular "Hell
Tour" wrapped up with a $10,000 to win program. Jeep once again timed in faster
than anyone in his group during qualifying and later scored the heat race triumph.
After drawing the outside of the front row prior to the start of the 60-lap feature
event, Jeep paced the stellar field for the first twenty-two circuits. He faded
a bit in the final stages of the race and eventually posted a sixth place effort
behind only winner Matt Miller, Jon Henry, Bobby Pierce, Jeff Babcock, and Devin
Moran. Complete results from the doubleheader weekend can be viewed online at
www.thehelltour.com [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001OForjO-Y8f6mHxaFyGS2cQR2qWKGJnVr5f_yO53adNT10WL4LhLTc1G7O_r4gluIE8amC68ENeCTiuFF1j3EU4MOgTRM2kkButh5oS5VecFBqFx6l0pR-A==].

"It was good to get back out and go racing last weekend at Attica and Oakshade,"
stated Van Wormer this week. "Our cars performed pretty well; we just had that
mechanical problem on Friday night that cost us a chance at a strong finish. Now
we have a quick turnaround to get our equipment ready for this mid-week deal at
Eldora. It is an honor to be invited to compete with the NASCAR trucks on Tuesday
and Wednesday and it should be a lot of fun. Hopefully, we can put on an exciting
show for all of those NASCAR fans in the stands and maybe convert a few to Dirt
Late Model fandom!"

Next up for Jeep and his #55 team will be a special trip to the famed Eldora Speedway
in Rossburg, Ohio on July 23-24 for the inaugural 'CarCash Mudsummer Classic.' The
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) will make their debut on the dirt at the
"Big E" tonight and tomorrow and the undercard is the Eldora Dirt Late Model Invitational.
Jeep is one of the drivers that has been invited to compete in the pair of $2,000
to win, 25-lap shows. The 'CarCash Mudsummer Classic' will feature six hours of
live programming on SPEED tonight and tomorrow. Learn more about this unique event

Jeep Van Wormer Earns Top Tens in Dream Twin 25s; Prepares for Oakshade/I-96

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) The Iron Motorsports team and driver Jeep Van Wormer rolled
into the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on June 6-8 for the 19th Annual
'Dirt Late Model Dream.' The expanded format at the "Big E" kicked off on Thursday
and Friday with Twin 25s. On Thursday night, Jeep ran fourth in heat race action
prior to moving up eight spots in the $2,500 to win feature en route to a solid 
sixth place effort. At the hallowed high-banks on Friday evening, Jeep also grabbed
the fourth and final transfer spot through his heat race before picking off eight
more competitors during the $5,000 to win A-Main on his way to a seventh place performance.

Things ratcheted up big time on Saturday, as a whopping $100,000 top prize was on
the line in the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' Jeep finished seventh in his stacked heat
race and later retired from the B-Main in the twenty-second position. Unfortunately,
the Pinconning, Michigan ace was unable to transfer his #55 Rocket into the 100-lap
crown jewel extravaganza. Full results from the long weekend at Eldora Speedway
can be viewed online at www.eldoraspeedway.com.

Jeep and his #55 team are slated to enjoy the upcoming June 14-15 weekend away from
the racetrack, but will be back hard at work next week preparing for two high-profile
races on June 22-23. Up next will be the 24th Annual 'Barney Oldfield Race' on Saturday,
June 22 at the Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio. The American Late Model Series
(ALMS) will preside over the $4,900 to win special event. On Sunday, June 23, the
I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan will welcome the UMP Summer Nationals tour
and a $5,000 winner's check will be up for grabs. You can keep up with Jeep's racing
plans 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by logging onto www.jeepvanwormer.com.

Pair of Top Fives for Iron Motorsports Over Memorial Day Weekend; DLM Dream Next

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) Jeep Van Wormer and the Iron Motorsports team roared back
into action on May 24-26 in an American Late Model Series (ALMS) tripleheader. 
On Friday night at the Mount Pleasant Speedway in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, Jeep
ran second in his heat race, but later broke an oil pump belt in the $2,000 to 
win feature, which led to a disappointing nineteenth place performance. In another
$2,000 to win showdown on Saturday evening at the Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio,
Jeep once again ran second in heat race action before climbing three spots in the
A-Main to finish third behind only winner Matt Miller and runner-up Dona Marcoullier.

The busy Memorial Day holiday weekend then wrapped up for the #55 team on Sunday
at the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. Jeep laid down the fastest lap
in his group during the qualifying session and later finished third in his heat
race. The Pinconning, Michigan ace then started the $2,000 to win main event from
the inside of the fifth row, but marched forward to claim a fourth place performance
behind only winner Jeff Babcock, Jacob Hawkins, and Jonathan Davenport. Full results
from the ALMS triple shot can be viewed online at www.americanlatemodelseries.com.

Jeep and his #55 team now plan to take the upcoming May 31-June 1 weekend off from
Dirt Late Model competition to prepare for the 19th Annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream'
by Ferris Commercial Mowers. The Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio will once again
play host to the sport's richest first place prize on Saturday, June 8, as a $100,000
paycheck will be in the balance. However, in a new twist, Twin 25 lap feature events
will be held on both Thursday ($2,500 to win each) and Friday ($5,000 to win each)
leading up to Saturday's normal format. The three-day crown jewel extravaganza on
June 6-8 now boasts a potential 31 races and 567 laps, with a posted payoff of $304,575.00.

Jeep Van Wormer Kicks Off 2013 In Style with One-Two Finishes in ALMS Action!

(PINCONNING, MICHIGAN) The Iron Motorsports team kicked-off their 2013 racing season
in style with a pair of American Late Model Series (ALMS) tilts in the states of
Ohio and Michigan over the April 26-27 weekend. On Friday night, Jeep Van Wormer
opened up his campaign at the Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, as a $2,000 top
prize was on the line. Jeep won his heat race in preliminary action and later battled
for the lead through much of the main event. After officially leading five circuits
from laps 17-21, Jeep settled for a strong runner-up effort behind only victor Jon
Henry.

Next up for the #55 team was a trip back to Michigan on Saturday to compete in the
annual running of the 'Player Hater 50' at the Winston Speedway in Rothbury. Jeep
once again took the victory in his heat race to earn the pole position for the 50-lap
feature event. The Pinconning, Michigan ace was then on a rail during the A-Main,
as he led from flag-to-flag to record the $2,500 payday over Rusty Schlenk, Rich
Neiser, Mike Spatola, and Andrew Reaume. Jeep's win secured his third 'Player Hater
50' title and marked his 31st career ALMS feature victory! Complete results from
the doubleheader weekend can be accessed online at www.americanlatemodelseries.com.

"We had a lot of fun last weekend and it was a great way to start out our year,"
quoted Van Wormer this week via telephone. "The only way it could have gone any
better was to sweep the weekend, but we just came up a little shy at Attica. After
going winless last year (in only fourteen races), it was nice to run up front and
get everyone's confidence up - especially with that win. I have to thank everyone
that supports our team, my family and all of the guys that help out on the car. 
Even through we don't race as much as we used to right now, I still want to be a
threat to win each time we unload and it takes a total team effort to get that 
accomplished."

Jeep and the Iron Motorsports team have opted to take the upcoming May 3-4 weekend
off from Dirt Late Model competition. In fact, their next scheduled race is not 
until Memorial Day weekend. However, the chances are good that Jeep will add a couple
of dates during May to his schedule, so keep checking his latest plans by logging
onto www.jeepvanwormer.com.
