Recap!
Mason ran yesterday at BAPS Motor Speedway’s Outback track. He drew a great pill and started on the pole for his heat race. Mason held his line and held off 2nd place to win his first EVER heat race win. I guess Harold bear and lots of “coke fuel” will be in his pit for every race.
Unfortunately rain would hit and his feature was postponed. Mason was in the zone yesterday and was not a happy child with Mother Nature. After some Jersey Mikes (one of his favorite places to eat) the driver calmed down and is ready to try this all again next week.
UPCOMING EVENTS:
2022 National Night Out at BAP’s tomorrow 8/2/2022 at the Touch of Color Flooring stand signing autographs. Balloon animals also Available!!!
8/6/2022- Kids night at BAP’s. Lots of free stuff and raffles! Both cars will be on display signing autographs!

Mason finished 3rd in tonight’s feature. He was contending for the lead when he got up to high and spun out. Restarted 4th and ran out of laps.
We could not be any more PROUD of the race car driver he is becoming.

Jason was involved in a crash very early in the race. Credited with 23rd. the car could be worse but we have some work to get done. For now, he must rest due to some minor injuries.
Racing never stops. Loading up for Mason to race today at BAP’s.
7/2/22 Linda's Speedway Results: Heat started 4th finished 5th. Feature started 15th finished 23rd DNF.
6/18/22 Last night at Linda's Speedway we would start 2nd in the first heat and finish 2nd. In the redraw we would draw a 7. Track conditions were extremely dry and hard race track. We would end up holding on to finish 8th. I don’t think we could of last much longer on tires.
6/5/22
This weekend was an extremely busy. Friday night we started on the pole in the first heat race, Jason would hang on to finish 2nd. Coming to the checkers he would smell coolant. We went over the lines, and motor to find a cylinder nut came off the right side of the engine by the intake. After restarting the car with a push off we would notice coolant coming out of the cylinder. We will have to do a leak test on the engine later this week to figure out where it is coming from. Meanwhile all of these was going on, Kate would pull Jason the pole position for the feature. The team was about to call it quits when Mighty Mac Motorsports would tell us to take their engine or car to start the feature so we would not lose points. Something we didn’t want to do but after being convinced by Mighty Mac, Jason would switch a few things around and start 24th giving up the pole position to start the race. Jason would wheel the car up to 10th, avoiding a major accident in turn 1&2. All in all it was a lot of ups and downs for us on Friday night at Linda’s.
After getting home early Saturday morning from Linda’s, Jason and Kate would prepare the engine that we got back but haven’t started yet for the Mason Dixon 270 Racing Series at BAPS Motor Speedway. After working till 3-330am the two would call it quits to get a few overs of sleep. Around 7am Jason, Kate, Kevin, and Mason would work hard till after 9am to finish the swap of the engine. With the first push down the street the engine would turn over and become alive! We can not thank Kent Weiss and DBY Motorsports enough for giving us such great equipment! After getting everything sorted out and cleaned back up we loaded up and took a couple hours of sleep. Then it was off to BAPS Motor Speedway.
The night started out with Jason displaying his car with the 2 Dirt Track Divas stand, thank you to everyone coming over to talk and get a few autographs! Jason would start 4th in Heat 1 and would end up finishing 5th qualifying for the 20 lap feature. With no notes on the new cylinder combo we would make a few adjustments on the car and carburetor to get ready for the feature. Jason would start 13th and would finish 13th. Jason worked his way up thru the field but fell back after the car started getting tight on entry into the corners. Also with being the first race on the new engine combo would be a little too rich on jetting and it took a few laps for the engine to come in. Not a bad night, we will take it and move on to Linda's Speedway this Friday for a time trial show.
Sunday Mason would once again strap back into his quarter midget for the red rookie class. Mason would go out and hot lap the car and line up 3rd for the heat. Mason would notice a problem with the throttle and pulled his car into the hot shoot. We would retire the car finishing 4th. After going over the car we found an issue with the car would fall off when the throttle was pushed down to accelerate. Thank you to Josh Henise for helping us out to change the valve springs! We would also go over the carburetor clean it really well and make a change. The engine seemed to react better to the changes. Mason would then start 4th and finish 4th after being more comfortable and gaining more speed in the car. We all are really proud of how far this little guy has come, what 6 year old kid realize there was something wrong with his engine and pull the car in to get it checked out? Mason will be a force to reckon with when we get this quarter midget stuff figured out!
HUGE shout out to Mighty Mac Motorsports and Makayla Fullerton for not only accomplishing her dream of racing on the big track at BAPS Motor Speedway, but gaining speed beating her times from practice at Baps! You guys are getting it, don’t quit, there will good things coming in the future for you guys!

5/13/22 Linda's Speedway Results: Heat started 5th finished 2nd. Feature started 6th finished 4th.
4/24/22 First race today for Mason on the Outback track at BAPS Motor Speedway. Mason did well for not being in the car in almost a month. Hot laps was a little sketchy but Mini Dude pushed through and had a blast. Heat race Mason would start 4th and finish 4th. Feature Mason would start 3rd finish 3rd. In the feature Mason gained speed the more laps Mini Dude ran. With more seat time Mason will get right up front again like in Rookie Training. We all are so proud of this little guy! Mason did finish the same as Jason in his feature! Not bad with Father and Son finish in the same spot this weekend of racing for both! Thank you to everyone for coming out to support Mini Dude this weekend for his first race! Very special Thank You to Elite Racing Imagery’s Tim Basehore for coming out for a small photo shoot for us and our sponsors, we can’t wait to see the pictures!!!

4/22/22 Linda's Speedway Results: Heat started 5th finished 2nd. Feature started 4th finished 3rd.
4/15/22 Well we started our night with drawing a 54 pill which would put us 8th in the first heat out of 31 cars. We would end up coming up to 4th but the driver had some issues learning to go straight. In the redraw we would draw a 9, lining us for the 24 car field. In the feature the car was perfect, we drove up to 4th passing cars. Battling with 3rd place car the motor made a weird noise and shut off. Come to find out the new cylinder broke in half. Definitely not the way we wanted to start our season out but it’s nothing to hang our heads at. It was another one of those races where we would of loved to see the end of the race to see what happen, but it just wasn’t in our favor last night. We will get things figured out and be back next week for sure. I can’t thank everyone enough who came out to support us and all the sponsors who continue to support us! Feature finished 19th DNF.

The Linda’s National Open is the biggest race in the country for the 270 micro sprints. All the best of the best run this race and win this event. Just to start the A-Main is an accomplishment. Our night on Friday started with 86 of the top 270 drivers signed into the pit area. We would end up making breaking a tooth in the transmission of our primary engine. With the help of Mike Boyer Racing, we switched our engines to our back up motor we haven’t ran in over 3 years. We would go out 10th, and would hit a 12.613 on the first lap and a 12.744 on the second time trial lap. We will end up 27th out of the 86 cars signed in. This would put us 4th in Heat 3, with only 3 drivers transferring to the A-Main. We would end up coming home in 4th which would up putting us into the B-Main. We would give it everything we had to try and transfer into the A-Main, only 5 cars would transfer from the B to the main event. We would end up staying in 3rd and transfer into the A-Main for the National Open 32! We started 27th out of the 30 cars that were lucky enough to make it to the show. Jason would make it up to 15th but on lap 18 on a yellow the motor shut off coming to the fuel stop. After the fuel stop the car started but up only to shut off again, ending our night in the Open and end up finishing 18th. All in all this night turned our season around and really put things on a high note. This has been a dream come true to just make the strong field of 30 for the National Open.

We would like to thank everyone that had supported our team over the years and they continue to do so.

6/10/21 After 15 years the 270cc micro sprints made their return to BAPS Motor Speedway. It was definitely a great showing with 38 micros signed into the pit area. Upon entering the speedway we pulled a 41 pill which would end up having us starting 8th in the 3rd heat. We would end up coming up to 6th but with a caution we would end up getting by the 5th place car and making it to the feature. We line up 19th in the feature only to breaking a bolt in the throttle pedal ending our night early. For the first race of the night we will take it and move on to the next. Overall the car get comfortable and we could move around and find speed. Our next race will be Friday for the first time enter we will be visiting Trail-Way Speedway in Hanover.

2020 News
10/27/20 The 2020 racing season let alone the year has been a VERY trying and unfortunate. The season might of not been the season we wanted but we made gains in our program as a team and learned a lot this year. The year started out very well with the team attending the Racing Xtravaganza show in York, Pa, and the Motorama event and the PA Home & Garden Design Expo at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, Pa. Our team met a bunch of people at all 3 events and had fun doing the shows. Our fundraiser this year was held at Mama’s Pizza in Wellsville, which we hope to keep the tradition into 2021 season. We could not be happier with the support of Mama’s! Great food, and even better people! Then COVID hit, races were cancelled and postponed. June 12th we finally were allowed to race and we made our first start of the season at Linda’s. We struggled all year at Linda’s to get going in the right direction. After switching shock manufacturers and switching out carburetors it seem to change our luck around. Till we flipped going down the backstretch causing Jason to severely bruise his tailbone and sitting out 3 weeks of racing. We would return to racing at Path Valley Speedway after Jason got the ok to resume racing which would result in his first top ten of the year. We would end our season at Linda’s with a extremely competitive 270 micro sprints that were there to prepare for the National Open. We would end up having to go through the Bmain to qualify but we were faster, smooth, and more comfortable with the second car we put together. We ended the season learning a lot, taking a ton of notes, and preparing for 2021 season. This season might had a bunch of issues but we grew as a team and learned a lot! We would like to thank everyone that helped us through this entire season! Thank you to Touch of Color Flooring, Bill, Joe, Scott, Eugene, Ronnie and the entire staff, 717 Innovations, Bill Smith and Brie Hershey, RTS Chassis, Terry, Theresa, Kent, Richie, Dennis, Jim, Charlene, and Rob, DBY Motorsports, Dan, Inspired Memories, Sarah and Allison, Wing Dynamics, Jeff Rine, Precision Hydraulic & Oil, Joe Infante, Baker Graphics, Race Ready Ink, Chad Baker and Richie Dodson, Awesome Race Tees, Kevin Quirk, Hot Shoe Racewear, Allen Grace, Cammac Racing Supply, Tom Sigley, Mama’s Pizza, Ron Rutherford, Checkered Flag Media, Brad Gossert, Miller’s Racing Parts, Steph and Jake Jones, Snyder Web Design, Kirsten Snyder, Advanced Racing Suspensions, and Hoosier Tires. Special thanks to Bob Harron for all his knowledge and help this season, we couldn’t of turned this season around without his help! Huge thank you to my crew, and all of our friends for coming out to help and support us. Thank you to my beautiful wife Katelind and my crew chief Mason, my father-in-law Kevin, Tim Johnson, and Matt Trace. Thank you to everyone that came out to the fundraiser at Mama’s, purchased shirts and hats, and purchased subs from our sale.
