Right at Home: Godown Continues Louisiana Success with Thursday Victory at the Rev

Written by Chris Moore

MONROE, LA – Feeling right at home.

Ringoes, N.J.’s Ryan Godown picked up his second win in three nights on the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco ‘Cajun Swing.’

Godown’s win came at one of the country’s state-of-the-art facilities at ‘The Rev’ on Revolution Park in Monroe, La. The event was the first appearance for the STSS and the big-block/small-block Modifieds at the nationally known facility.

“I haven’t seen a dirt track this awesome and this close to Bridgeport (N.J.) before tonight,” explained Godown of his fondness of The Rev and its likening to his home track in the Garden State.

The historic triumph puts Godown in the driver’s seat for the Wegner Automotive championship on the 2021 ‘Cajun Swing,’ having added $5,000-plus to his weekly total for his efforts at The Rev.

Godown’s chase for his second win in three nights began from the outside of the front row, with Ballston Spa, N.Y.’s Derrick McGrew Jr. going from the pole position.

Godown quickly made his way to the top spot and set the pace in the early going. Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen, who started third, made quick work of McGrew Jr. to climb to the runner-up spot and set his sights on Godown.

The race’s first yellow came on lap nine, when Joe Boswell slowed on the front straightaway due to a mechanical failure, and collected Ransomville, N.Y.’s Erick Rudolph, ending his night prematurely.

After multiple restarts in the early going, Godown continued to pace Friesen out front while Vernon, N.Y.’s Willy Decker and King Ferry, N.Y.’s Mike Mahaney traded third and fourth multiple times.

On the lap-16 restart, Friesen timed Godown’s jump perfectly. Friesen slid up in front of Godown into the first turn, with Godown choosing the top for the restart.

Friesen appeared well on his way to do what he does and drive away with an STSS triumph. However, his lead was short-lived. On lap 18, Friesen’s right-rear wheel came off the Halmar International No. 44 as he entered the first turn. Friesen’s car flipped multiple times but he walked away uninjured.

Godown’s new challenger was STSS South Region champion Mike Mahaney.

Mahaney appeared to be one step behind Godown throughout the second half of the feature. Despite multiple restarts, the ‘Ringoes Rocket’ maintained his edge throughout the event, picking up the win in Night No. 3 of the ‘Cajun Swing.’

Mahaney held on for second in his George Huttig-owned No. 35 and Savannah, N.Y.’s Matt Sheppard quietly rounded out the podium finishers. Saratoga Springs, N.Y.’s Jack Lehner brought his No. 2 to a fourth-place finish and Willy Decker rounded out the top-five.

Gloversville, N.Y.’s Rocky Warner brought the Jason Simmons Racing No. 98 home with a hard fought sixth-place finish and Derrick McGrew Jr. ended up with a seventh-place run. Converse, La.’s Tommy Rascoe raced from 14th starting position to a respectable eighth-place finish and Waxahachie, Texas resident Kodey Keimig chased him across the line in ninth. Bossier City, La.’s Keith Badiali rounded out the top-10 finishers.

Twenty-nine STSS Modifieds signed in at the series trailer to compete in the first ever Modified appearance at The Rev.

Heat winners, receiving $50 each courtesy of FloRacing in addition to a $50 ERK Steering Repair gift certificate were Lehner, Friesen and Godown.

Racing resumes for the STSS on Friday, November 12 at Super Bee Speedway for Night No. 4 of the ‘Cajun Swing.’ The Modifieds (40 laps, $4,000 to win, $750 for 10th & $400 to start) are joined by the Limited Modifieds, Factory Stocks, and Compacts.

Shining on the Bayou: Erick Rudolph Takes $4,000 Top Prize at Ark-La-Tex

Written by Chris Moore

VIVIAN, LA – Rudolph shines on the Bayou.

Ransomville, N.Y.’s Erick Rudolph raced to a $4,000-plus payday in Round No. 2 of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco ‘Cajun Swing’ at Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Louisiana.

“The track changed a lot during the race… later in the going it seemed like the car came to life,” explained Rudolph of his late charge for the win.

Rudolph’s triumph was the fourth of his STSS career, three of which have occurred outside the STSS home in the Northeast.

After a runner-up finish the previous night, Rudolph is tied with Ringoes, N.J.’s Ryan Godown atop the ‘Cajun Swing’ points standings with three races remaining.

Rudolph’s chase for the Bayou State victory began from the 11th starting position for the second night in a row.

Gloversville, N.Y.’s Rocky Warner started on the front row with the previous night’s winner – Ringoes, N.J.’s Ryan Godown – alongside.

Godown used the topside momentum to take the lead and set the pace in the early going, while Warner raced in second and Ballston Spa, N.Y.’s Derrick McGrew Jr. battled for third with King Ferry, N.Y.’s Mike Mahaney.

After a pair of early yellows, Mahaney shook off McGrew Jr. and brought Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen with him in the battle for third.

Friesen would work by Mahaney and set his sights on Warner for the runner-up spot before a lap-13 caution restacked the field.

Friesen’s assault continued as he worked around Warner on lap 18 and began reeling in Godown as the two carved through lap traffic into the second half of the feature.

Friesen stalked Godown before a moment came that changed the complexion of the race. As the leaders completed the 26th circuit, lapped traffic was three-wide directly in front of the top two.

Friesen darted to the inside of Godown just as Godown was moving to the bottom, both searching for a way by the lapped cars. The contact sent Friesen into an infield tire, breaking his front end and terminating his night prematurely.

The lap-26 restart was when Rudolph suddenly broke into contention. Rudolph restarted from the fourth position and ran his way into the runner-up spot, slipping by Savannah, N.Y.’s Matt Sheppard and Rocky Warner.

From lap 29 to the checkered flag, Rudolph and Godown were trading slide jobs for the Ark-La-Tex win.

Rudolph outdueled Godown and claim Night No. 2 of the ‘Cajun Swing’ for his fourth-career STSS triumph in his Revive Spine Center No. 25.

Godown brought home a runner-up finish in his R&M Motorsports No. 26 and Rocky Warner rounded out the top-three in his Jason Simmons Racing No. 98.

Derrick McGrew Jr.’s up-and-down night ended with a fourth-place finish in his family-owned No. 26 and Vernon, N.Y.’s Willy Decker rounded out the top-five in his No. 1x.

Matt Sheppard finished in the sixth spot after a tumultuous evening in the Hurlock Auto & Speed Supply No. 9s. Mike Mahaney faded to seventh in the George Huttig-owned No. 35 and Jackson, N.J.’s Steve Davis grabbed eighth in his Masker Racing No. 72.

Saratoga Springs, N.Y.’s Jack Lehner came home ninth in the No. 2 and Knox, N.Y.’s John Lutes rounded out the top-10 in his self-owned No. 959.

Twenty-nine STSS Modifieds signed in at the gate for night No. 2 of the ‘Cajun Swing.’

Heat winners, receiving $50 each courtesy of FloRacing in addition to a $50 ERK Steering Repair gift certificate, were Decker, Friesen and Rudolph.

With weather approaching, series management opted to move up the starting time for the evening and the main event for the STSS Modifieds was completed by 7:55 p.m.

Racing resumes for the STSS on Thursday, November 11 at ‘The Rev’ at Revolution Park for Night No. 3 of the ‘Cajun Swing.’ The Modifieds (40 laps, $5,000 to win, $750 for 10th & $400 to start) are joined by the Limited Modifieds and Factory Stocks.

Rocketing to the Top: Ryan Godown Opens ‘Cajun Swing’ with Boothill Victory

Written by Chris Moore

GREENWOOD, LA – Rocketing to the top.

The ‘Ringoes Rocket’ Ryan Godown claimed the opening night of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Modified ‘Cajun Swing’ at Boothill Speedway in Louisiana.

Godown’s triumph, worth $4,000-plus, was his seventh career STSS victory and his first since October 2017 at Georgetown (Del.) Speedway.

Godown’s quest for the ‘Cajun Swing’ opener began from the ninth position, with Johnstown, N.Y.’s Rocky Warner and Saratoga Springs, N.Y.’s Jack Lehner on the front row of the 40-lap main event.

Lehner pounced off the outside of the front row and led in the early going.

It took the leaders just three laps to make their way into heavy lap traffic, as the ‘Ginga Ninja,’ Lehner was expertly navigating his way through the slower traffic with precision.

The first 10 laps clicked off caution-free, before the ‘Cajun Region’ champion, Robeline, La.’s Caleb Dillard slowed to a stop, bringing out the race’s first yellow.

With Dillard off, the field went back to racing and Lehner quickly worked back into slower traffic. This time, Lehner didn’t fare as well.

A three-wide maneuver entering turn three ended Lehner’s quest for his first STSS win with a broken rear suspension.

Warner inherited the lead with Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen pulling up alongside, putting the Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway foes at the front of the field.

Godown’s charge to the front became apparent on a lap-16 restart, racing from sixth to fourth and stalking the top three as the field closed in on the halfway point.

On lap 21, Friesen turned up the pressure on Warner, diving to the inside of him down the back straightaway. The two would race side-by-side under Jimmy McCommas before Warner pushed up the track and made contact with McCommas. McCommas’s car bounced and then flipped, drawing the red flag. He was uninjured.

With the lap not completed, Friesen’s pass was negated and Warner once again controlled the restart.

Godown picked another one off, going around Savannah, N.Y.’s Matt Sheppard for third on the restart before another yellow flew on lap 24. On that restart, Sheppard’s night came to an end, as something in the rear sent the Hurlock Auto & Speed No. 9s around.

The lap-24 yellow was the final one, as Friesen’s pressure continued on Warner for the top spot. Friesen raced underneath Warner for the lead on lap 27, but the back end of the car came out from underneath the Halmar International No. 44, sending him sideways and into the infield.

Friesen rejoined the track and the field in the fourth position, but he surrendered the runner-up spot to Godown and the third spot to Ransomville, N.Y.’s Erick Rudolph.

Godown wasted no time chasing down Warner and using Friesen’s high-to-low move off turn two to get underneath Warner and drive by him for the race lead.

New Jersey’s Godown led the final nine laps to claim his seventh career STSS victory, and the opening night of the 2021 ‘Cajun Swing.’

Rudolph raced to a runner-up finish in his Revive Spine Center No. 25 and Friesen recovered to round out the podium.

Warner dropped to fourth a bent front axle in his Jason Simmons Racing No. 98 and Ballston Spa, N.Y.’s Derrick McGrew Jr. rounded out the top five in his family-owned No. 26.

Horseheads, N.Y.’s Tyler Siri raced to sixth in his Outlaw Speedway No. 5* and Vernon, N.Y.’s Willy Decker finished in seventh. Eighth was Waxahachie, Texas resident Kodey Keimig (earning the Behrent’s Performance Warehouse Top Louisiana-Texas driver bonus) with Benton, La.’s Keith Badiali coming home ninth and Pollock, La.’s Danny Baglio rounded out the top 10.

Thirty-two STSS Modifieds attempted to qualify for the ‘Cajun Swing’ opener at Boothill Speedway.

Heat winners, receiving $50 each courtesy of FloRacing in addition to a $50 ERK Steering gift certificate, were Godown, Decker, Sheppard and Lehner.

Racing resumes for the STSS on Wednesday, November 10 at Ark-La-Tex Speedway for Night No. 2 of the ‘Cajun Swing.’ The Modifieds (40 laps, $4,000 to win, $750 for 10th & $400 to start) are joined by the Pro Mods, Crate Late Models, Factory Stocks and Four Cylinders.

Bayou Bound: Short Track Super Series Heads to Louisiana for Nov. 9-13 ‘Cajun Swing’

Written by Chris Moore

SHREVEPORT, LA – Bound for the Bayou.

The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco treks back to Louisiana for the ‘Cajun Swing’ 2021 edition.

This year’s ‘Cajun Swing’ expands from last season’s three features in four nights, to five full programs of racing in five nights for the STSS Modifieds, culminating in the ‘Mods at the Marsh 75’ at Super Bee Speedway (Chatham, La.). The finale will be a 75-lap, $20,000-to-win feature event for the STSS Modifieds.

More than $138,500 has been posted in purse money for the five nights of STSS Modified racing at four venues: Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, La.), Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, La.), The Rev (Monroe, La.) and the recently rebranded Super Bee.

Some of the stars of the Northeast, including both 2021 STSS Modified champions, will face off with the growing list of racers in the STSS Cajun Region.

Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central Champion Mike Mahaney of King Ferry, N.Y., and Hurlock Auto & Speed Supply North Region Champion Matt Sheppard of Savannah, N.Y., will lead the stars of the Northeast to battle against the boys on the Bayou.

Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen, the all-time winningest driver on the STSS, will return to the Bayou along with Sarasota Springs, N.Y.’s Jack Lehner, who both attended the first annual ‘Cajun Swing.’ Ballston Spa, N.Y.’s Derrick McGrew Jr. and Tyler Siri and Eric Williams, both of Horseheads, N.Y., will also be in attendance for the second consecutive year in the Bayou State.

Some first timers from the Northeast planning to load up and head South include Ringoes, N.J.’s Ryan Godown, Johnstown, N.Y.’s Rocky Warner and Vernon, N.Y.’s Willy Decker among others.

Erick Rudolph was the winner of a non-sanctioned event on Louisiana soil last May during COVID-19 restrictions in the Northeast. The Ransomville, N.Y., driver returns for the ‘Cajun Swing’ in the Bayou State.

The Cajun Region Champion, Robeline, La.’s Caleb Dillard will bring the hometown boys with him, trying to strut their stuff against the best of the Northeast.

Dillard’s closest competitor in the Cajun Region points, Converse, La.’s Tommy Rascoe will also be on hand for the ‘Cajun Swing.’ Rascoe got to see many of the stars of the Northeast firsthand, after joining them in January for the ‘Sunshine Swing’ at Bubba (Fla.) Raceway Park.

Red Oak, Texas driver Jon White Jr., a winner at Big O Speedway, and Mansfield, La.’s Cody Robbins, a winner at Super Bee Speedway, both also plan to help defend the home turf across the five nights of racing.

It all begins Tuesday, November 9 at Boothill Speedway in a 40-lap, $4,000-to-win main event to kick off the five-night swing of racing.

All five events will be broadcast live to a national audience via FloRacing through the $150 annual subscription. Visit www.floracing.tv to subscribe.

Perfect Night for Caleb Dillard at Super Bee, Wins STSS Cajun Event & Championship

CHATHAM, LA – For Caleb Dillard, it was a perfect night at Super Bee Speedway.

Dillard not only won Saturday’s 20-lap Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco ‘Cajun Region’ feature at the Chatham facility, but he also etched his name as the first-ever champion of the first-year ‘Cajun Region’ hosting Northeast-style Modifieds in Louisiana and Texas.

The win for Dillard was his fifth of the season in the series with the TCB Motorsports No. 18.

The Robeline, La., driver inherited the lead after a battle between ‘Brother’ Fowlkes and Tommy Rascoe.

Fowlkes and Rascoe swapped the lead before Rascoe eventually took command when Fowlkes’ car momentarily bobbled. Dillard snuck past into second as well.

A tangle in lapped traffic, however, ended Rascoe’s effort shy of a Sunoco checkered flag.

Dillard took over the top spot and drove on to a $1,500 payday during the Super Bee ‘Spooky 50’ weekend.

Dillard secured the title by 84 points over Rascoe.

Fowlkes, of Woodworth, La., finished second, followed by Greg Dillard (Robeline, La.), Thomas Holt (Atlanta, Texas) and Brent Buckley (Shreveport, La.).

Heat winners were Caleb Dillard and Rascoe.

The series is now silent until the combined Short Track Super Series ‘Cajun Swing’ featuring five nights of racing from November 9-13. The action is set for Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, La.) Tuesday, Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, La.) Wednesday, The Rev (Monroe, La.) Thursday and Super Bee both Friday and Saturday.
