Dillard Wins Grandfather’s Memorial Race at Sabine Speedway Friday

MANY, LA – Caleb Dillard won one for his grandfather on Friday night.

Dillard topped the ‘Doc Dillard Memorial’ at Sabine Speedway for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Ollie’s Bargain Outlet ‘Cajun Region’ – an emotional triumph at the Many, La., oval during Round No. 3 of the Day Motor Sports point series.

The victory was worth $2,500-plus for the Robeline, La., driver, who was the inaugural STSS Cajun Region champion a year ago.

The Sabine grandstands were jam-packed for the event.

Dillard’s drive to victory nearly ended on the first of 40 laps when his No. 18 collided with an infield marker tire in turn four. He was able to continue and made the most of the good fortune.

Dillard chased down early leader Cody Robbins, made the winning pass and drove on to victory in an historic night for the series.

Not only was the event the longest and most lucrative event run thus far, it also marked the debut of Ollie’s Bargain Outlet as the region’s title sponsor, an announcement made yesterday.

Alan Myers of Sibley, La., chased Dillard across the line in second, followed by Keith Badiali of Benton, La., Koty Adams of Doyline, La., and Tommy Rascoe of Converse, La.

Adams drove from 16th to his fourth-place finish to earn the $50 Shed Road Auto Parts Hard Charger.

Heat winners were Myers, Robbins and David Forbis.

The Short Track Super Series Cajun Region Day Motor Sports point series moves to Super Bee Speedway in Chatham, La., on May 28 for Round No. 4.

STSS Cajun Region Visits Thunder Valley May 14, Ark-La-Tex Secures July 23 Date

Written by Chris Moore

SHREVEPORT, LA Two-for-two.

The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco ‘Cajun Region’ has fired off with back-to-back successful events to open the 2022 racing season.

Korey Keimig of Waxahachie, Texas, won the season opener at Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas on March 26. Keimig used a last-lap pass around the outside to go from third-to-first to claim his first career STSS victory.

Robeline, La.’s Caleb Dillard bested the largest field in ‘Cajun Region’ history at Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, La., on April 9. Dillard – the defending series champion – topped the 21-car field at Boothill.

Both Boothill and Superbowl speedways were hosting their first-ever ‘Cajun Region’ points-paying events in history.

Round No. 3 in the Day Motor Sports ‘Cajun Region’ points series is a visit to Glenmora, La.’s Thunder Valley Speedway on Saturday, May 14 for the first time in 2022 and the third time in ‘Cajun Region’ history.

Thunder Valley hosted the STSS ‘Cajun Region’ on two occasions in ‘21, with Dillard and Converse, La.’s Tommy Rascoe claiming the victories in the inaugural ‘Cajun Region’ season.

Following his triumph at Boothill, Dillard currently sits atop the ‘Cajun Region’ standings with 190-points, just 10 ahead of Tommy Rascoe. Waxahachie, Texas racer Kodey Keimig – son of Korey – is third with 166 markers.

McLeod, Texas driver Richard Holt is fourth in points at 157-points and STSS rookie Koty Adams – of Doyline, La. – rounds out the top five at 151-points.

With the uncertainty surrounding the future of The Rev (Monroe, La.) as a dirt track, Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La., has filled the Saturday, July 23 STSS ‘Cajun Region date. Ark-La-Tex now hosts two ’22 points races for the series.

Dillard Does It: Defending Champion Bests 21-Car Field STSS at Packed Boothill Speedway

GREENWOOD, LA – With some good fortune on his side, Caleb Dillard broke into the win column on Saturday night at Boothill Speedway.

Dillard bested a strong 21-car field – the largest to date – for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series Fueled By Sunoco ‘Cajun Region’ in Round No. 2 of the Day Motor Sports point series.

The STSS Modifieds took part in their first points-paying event at Boothill before a packed grandstand during the track’s milestone 50th anniversary season.

Robeline, La.’s Dillard, the 2021 series champion, relished the growing car count and enthusiasm of the large crowd.

“This is awesome to see such a good field of cars here and the fans coming out to support us,” Dillard said. “We’re really trying to get this class going. It’s a blast; probably the most fun I’ve ever had in a race car.”

The 20-lap main event produced its share of drama.

Pole starter Keith Badiali led the opening 11 laps of the main event on the high-banked quarter-mile oval, while Dillard, Tommy Rascoe and Koty Adams swapped positions behind him.

Adams, who started sixth, drove into the lead with a slide job on lap 12, with Rascoe and Dillard in tow.

The race’s complexion changed on the 14th lap when a tangle in turn two drew the caution. After the ensuing restart was nixed by series starter David Corbelo and the yellow lights were on, Adams’ Frank Lofton-owned No. 4X ended up on its side in turn one. He was uninjured.

Rascoe inherited the lead over Dillard.

“I don’t know what happened to Koty,” Dillard said. “I didn’t even know I was second (after Adams’ incident). It was a shock to me.”

When the green appeared, Rascoe’s No. R21 broke loose in turn four, allowing Dillard to sweep into the lead.

“Tommy (Rascoe) must have spun his tires (on the restart),” Dillard said. “And I got going pretty good.”

Dillard survived one more yellow during the race’s late stages to take home the $1,000 payday for his TCB Motorsports team.

“My car was really free,” Dillard said, after at one point fading to fourth-place mid-race. “I caught some lucky breaks at the end. Sometimes you’ve gotta be lucky.”

Rascoe, of Converse, La., narrowly held onto second at the finish, fending off the challenges of Waxahachie, Texas resident Kodey Keimig, who drove forward from 10th. The father-and-son pair of Richard Holt (Atlanta, Texas) and Thomas Holt (McLeod, Texas) filled out the front five after starting fourth and seventh, respectively.

Heat winners for the 21 cars on hand were Richard Holt, Rascoe and Dillard.

BOOTHILL BITES: Boothill Speedway’s promotional team took advantage of the big crowd to announce the Greenwood, La., facility will host the ‘Cajun Swing’ finale paying $20,000 to win on Nov. 12 paying $20,000 to win. The event had been scheduled for The Rev in Monroe, La., which has apparently hosted its final event as a dirt track…

The Shed Road Auto Parts $50 Hard Charger went to longtime Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, La.) owner and promoter Gene Boyter, who started last and finished eighth…

Two of the 21 cars were unable to start the main event: New Yorker John Lutes in the Joe Boswell-owned No. 42X with battery issues and Cody Robbins due to rear-end failure…

The 21-car field was a new high for the series in its second season. The previous high was an 18-car field at Big O Speedway (Ennis, Texas) last August…
