The Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour had a full weekend of racing in Wyoming, as Newcastle Speedway hosted the second annual Sagebrush Shootout. This year the shootout was an invitational that invited some of the best drivers from the Miniakota Micros, a series attracts drivers from eastern SD, IA, and MN. The weather and the racing was hot and thankfully dry for the 23 cars that took the track for the weekend.
Brandon, SD's Shane Fick (7), representing the Miniakota group, picked up the regular BHMST point feature win on Friday night on a super fast, super rough track, followed closely by Granville, IA's Tim Ottenbacher (32t), Newcastle, WY's Logan Hershey (20), Luvern, MN's Bryan Buysee (1), and Rapid City, SD's Jason Robins (50), with 4 states represented in the top 5 finishing spots. Turn 4 would be the nemesis of a couple of drivers, sucking Brandon Mills a little too high in qualifying, and into the guardrail finishing his efforts for the evening. Turn 4 also ended Karon Deshaw's evening during the heat races as she went over the turn, flipping and getting collected in the catch fence. Both drivers were ok and would repair and return for Saturday's racing. Rookie, Riley Fremont picked up the SpeedMart's Hard Charger Award by advancing 12 spots in the feature.
Saturday night would produce more exciting racing as the 2 groups would battle to be crowned the 2015 Sagebrush Shootout Champion. In the first feature of the night, the second regular BHMST point race, Reggie Schrank (521) Friday night's quick time setter, would score his first feature win of the 2015 season, leading wire to wire on a much smoother and slicker track surface. Close on his bumper for the whole race was Tim Ottenbacher, making an exciting last lap attempt for the win, only to come up 1/2 a car short. Hershey, Buysee, and Fick would again finish out the top 5.
For the second feature of the night, the Challenge Race, hometown hero Logan Hershey, was able to use lapped traffic to his advantage and overcome Reggie Schrank 1/2 way through the 20 lap feature. Hershey who has battled "gremlins" all season, from fuel pump problems to accidents, and 3 blown motors, would be able to keep his #20 at the front of the field, and take home (a short drive in Newcastle) the coveted Shootout trophy and be crowned as the 2015 Sagebrush Shootout Champion. Schrank would hold on finish 2nd, followed by the Miniakota drivers of Ottenbacher, Fick, and Buysee to finish in the top 5 spots. Corner 2 would turn out to be the problem on Saturday, as Shane Fick and Ron Fulk would both drive over the top and end up getting upside down. Fick would be able to drive away from his accident and finish his heat race, but Fulk took a much harder ride, destroying his car in the shootout feature. Ironically, Ron Fulk was the SpeedMart's Hard Charger winner in the first feature, easing the pain a little.
The next stop for the Hoosier Tire's Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour will be back at the Newcastle Speedway on Aug. 22nd for the last time of the 2015 season. Races start at 7:00pm
