DACHENHAUSEN INCREASES BETHEL MOTOR SPEEDWAY WIN STREAK TO 8 IN A ROW

BETHEL, NY – BMS Modified competitor Ed Dachenhausen has had a busy season, spending most Friday nights competing on dirt before loading up to race on the asphalt at Bethel Motor Speedway on Saturday. The fast pace seems to suit him well, as he grabbed his eighth consecutive win this past Saturday.

While the field was small, the action was intense as Dachenhausen and Robbie Konikowski ran side-by-side for the majority of the race. The pair swapped the spot by a matter of mere inches several times, but Dachenhausen put his car solidly out front with five laps remaining, and he took the win over Konikowski.

To say that 2012 Sportsman champion Jerry Curry delivered a dominating performance this past weekend would be an understatement. Greg Morgan started on the outside pole and took the early lead, but it took Curry only two laps to claim the lead. While Morgan and Kyle Redner battled for the second spot behind him, Curry pulled away from the field. Redner made the pass for second just past the halfway point of the event. Rick Mill took over second with five laps remaining, but lost the position after officials determined that Mill had gone off the racing surface to gain the spot. Curry claimed the win, while second was awarded to Kyle Redner and third went to Jeff Richardson.

Joseph Graf led every lap of the Legends Pro/Masters/Semi Pro feature to take down the win, his seventh of the season. Graf started on the pole and led 2009 Bethel Legends champion Mike Alcaro lap after lap as Brad Lowmaster looked on from the third spot. Under caution, Lowmaster made a bid for the lead by going to the outside of Graf at the “choose cone”, but Graf was untouchable, as no one was able to overtake him. Graf claimed the victory over Alcaro and Lowmaster.

For the eighth time this season, Alex McCollum found himself in Victory Lane at the conclusion of the Legends Young Lions feature. McCollum took off from the pole and led every lap, but it was no simple task, as David French applied pressure over the entire race distance. French nosed out front by a bumper late in the race, but the caution came out before the lap was complete. French restarted on the outside of McCollum, but McCollum was able to get the jump on the restart. McCollum was first to the line, followed by French and Teddy Hodgdon.

While French had to be content with second in the Young Lions race, he came out on top in the Bandolero feature. French and Teddy Bowen started on the front row, and French got out front at the drop of the green, leaving Bowen to chase him. Lars McElravy took the third spot from Sean Verwys just prior to the halfway point, but the leaders were unstoppable. French beat Bowen and McElravy to the checkered flag.

Joey Aungst scored his third Beginner Bandolero win of the season, starting on the pole and leading every lap. He crossed the line ahead of Katie Verwys and Nick Archiere.

Ed Butler came from the sixth starting spot to notch his second Pro Stock win of the season. Mac Crawson took the early lead over Jim Helt, but Kenny Atkins and Butler were marching towards the front. With six laps in the books, Atkins took over the top spot, bringing Butler with him to the second spot. Atkins’ time out front was short-lived, as Butler grabbed the lead just two laps later, as Jim Helt took over third. Butler drove on to the win over Atkins and Helt.

Gary VanOrden picked up his third consecutive Street Stock win – his eighth of the year – after taking the lead from his daughter, defending division champion Amber VanOrden. Vinny Stanton led the first three laps before contact from Kevin Skelly resulted in both cars having to restart at the rear of the field. A. VanOrden inherited the lead as a result, and she and G. VanOrden swapped the top spot before G. VanOrden took it for good at the halfway point. Skelly worked his way back through the field to finish second, and A. VanOrden was third.

Dan Curry claimed his second 4 Cylinder Advanced win of the year after starting seventh. Joe Wilson and Jerry Kingeter started on the front row, but Curry was a man on a mission, and he had put his car out front by the time there were just three laps complete. Joe Morris came to second just a few laps later, and 2014 4 Cylinder Novice champion Brian Bauernfeind came to third. Joe Smith, who started 15th, broke into the top three at the halfway point, and took over second three laps later.Dan Curry continued to pace the field, and beat Smith and Morris to the checkered flag.

John Houghtaling took down his first win of the season in the 4 Cylinder Novice division after starting on the outside of the front row, alongside Dan Houghtaling.D. Houghtaling shot out front and led the field until just prior to the halfway point, when J. Houghtaling got by for the lead. James Curry came to second two laps later, and Jessey Torrens followed to take third. Curry and Torrens looked to get past J. Houghtaling, but neither were able to as J. Houghtaling collected the win. Curry had to be content with second, and Torrens held on to finish third.

Bob White claimed his second Vintage Midget Racing Series (VMRS) win in as many attempts at Bethel Motor Speedway in a 15-lap feature event. Harry Weed held the top spot early in the race, before being passed by White with five laps in the books. As the laps wound down, Dave Shore laid claim to the second spot, but he was unable to progress any further as White was first to cross the line. Shore was second, and Weed finished third.

This coming week, Bethel Motor Speedway will open the gates on Friday, July 31st, for a practice session for the Legends and Bandoleros in preparation for their INEX Asphalt Legends Nationals qualifier/Bandolero championship race. Gates will open at 12 noon, with practice running from 2 pm until 8 pm. Grandstand admission is free.

DACHENHAUSEN CONTINUES TO DOMINATE AT BETHEL MOTOR SPEEDWAY

BETHEL, NY – Ed Dachenhausen has been virtually untouchable in the BMS Modified division at Bethel Motor Speedway this season, as he picked up his sevent consecutive win – and ninth of the season – this past Saturday. It was not easy work for Dachenhausen, who ran side-by-side with 2013 division champion for several laps in order to take the lead.

Cote took off from the outside pole to take the lead at the start of the race, and Dachenhausen came to second almost immediately. Cote and Dachenhausen spent the first seven laps of the event wheel to wheel, with Cote holding on to the lead by mere inches. On lap eight, Dachnehausen was finally able to get past Cote and put his car solidly out front.

Cote spent the remainder of the event chasing Dachenhausen, who cruised to the win. Cote had to be content with second, and Blair Culhane crossed the line third.

Sportsman driver Rich Coons added to his lengthy racing resume when he picked up his first win of the year. It was his 104th career win. Coons came from the fifth starting spot to claim the victory.

Greg Morgan and Kimberlee Morgan made up the front row for the start, with G. Morgan taking the lead. Dan Dulin came to second, but it was short-lived, as Coons moved from third to first in a single lap with just three laps in the books. Jerry Curry, who started seventh, took over the third spot on lap five and moved into second just one lap later.

Over the extended green flag run, the leaders had to thread their way through lapped traffic, and Coons led the way. When the checkered flag flew, Coons was first to the line, followed by Curry and Dulin.

Defending Legends Pro/Masters champion Richie Coy picked up his third win of the season, putting an end to Joseph Graf’s two-race win streak. Graf started on the pole, with Coy to his outside. Coy got out front at the drop of the green, leaving Graf to search for a way past. Coy led every lap on his way to the win over Graf and Jim Sylvester.

It is said that the first win is the hardest to achieve, and that they come easier after that. The saying held true for Legends Young Lions driver Teddy Hodgdon, who notched his second consecutive win this past Saturday. Hodgdon started on the pole and led every lap to collect the victory. David French, who started on the outside of the front row, held on to second for the entire race distance, and Alex McCollum finished third.

Defending Bandolero champion David French came from the third starting spot to grab his third consecutive win, and ninth of the season. Lars McElravy and Eugene Drew sat on the front row for the start, but French wasted no time, putting his car out front on the initial lap. McElravy applied pressure to French lap after lap as the pair pulled away from the rest of the field in the caution-free event. French crossed the line ahead of McElravy and Drew.

Jeff Darrah took down his first career win in the Beginner Bandolero feature. Darrah started on the pole, with Tyler Dachenhausen to his outside. Dachenhausen got out front following a caution pn the intial lap, with Darrah second and Joey Aungst third. On lap three, Darrah worked his way past Dachnehausen and set his sights on the checkered flag. Dachenhausen was unable to make a successful bid to reclaim the top spot, and Darrah led Dachenhausen and Aungst to the finish.

Rick Smith visited Victory Lane for the first time this season at the concusion of the Pro Stock feature. Mac Crawson took off from the outside pole and led the first eight laps before mechanical issues forced him to retire from the event, handing the lead to Greg Cohen. Just past the halfway point, Smith was able to get out front after several cars at the front of the field made contact, bringing out the caution. Smith led the remaining laps to take the win over Vinnie Stanton and Jim Helt.

Gary VanOrden picked up his seventh Street Stock win of the season, padding his points lead over his daughter, defending division champion Amber VanOrden. The elder VanOrden came from the fourth starting spot to take the lead from outside pole sitter Steve Smalley on lap five of the event. VanOrden crossed the line ahead of Smalley. Following post-race technical inspection, third was awarded to A. VanOrden.

Brian Bauernfeind grabbed his second consecutive win in the 4 Cylinder Advanced feature, leading every lap of the race to take the win. Bauernfeind started on the outside pole, alongside Jerry Kingeter, and Bauernfeind took the immediate lead. By lap two, Joe Morris came to second, but Kingeter and Morris made contact with six laps I the books, and both retired to the pits. Dan Curry inherited second as a result, and JB Morris moved up to third. The top three remained unchanged over the remainder of the race, with Bauernfeind scoring the win over Curry and Morris.

Heather Porter collected her first career win in the 4 Cylinder Novice class, staring on the outside of the front row and leading every lap of the event. James Sweeney started on the pole, and Porter was able to put him behind her on the initial lap. With only two laps in the books, Brittany Curry grabbed second, and Felicia Reichenbaugh came to third briefly before being passed by James Curry. Porter was unstoppable as she drove to victory over B. Curry and J. Curry.

This coming Saturday, July 25th, the gates at Bethel Motor Speedway will once again swing open for a jam-packed night of racing excitement. On the schedule are the BMS Modified, 358/Sportsman, Legends, Bandolero, Pro Stock, Street Stock, and 4 Cylinder Advanced and Novice classes.

DACHENHAUSEN TOPS LIST OF CAMERA NIGHT WINNERS AT BETHEL MOTOR SPEEDWAY

BETHEL, NY – Fans were surprised at the beginning of the Bethel Motor Speedway season to see that defending BMS Modified champion Joe McCarthy stepped out of the driver’s seat, turning the wheel over to his brother-in-law, Ed Dachenhausen. Dachenhausen, who has spent recent years competing on dirt, has proven to be a dominant force on asphalt as he picked up his sixth consecutive win – and eighth of the season – during Camera Night at the quarter-mile asphalt oval this past Saturday.

It was a hard-fought win for Dachenhausen, who ran in the third spot for the first half of the race. George Rudinas took off from the pole and got out to the early lead, and Blair Culhane quickly made his way to second. Culhane and Dachenhausen ran side-by-side behind Rudinas, each looking for a way past the 2014 Rookie of the Year. At the halfway point of the race, Rudinas moved up the track just enough to open the inside lane for Dachnhausen to march past, and Culhane followed to take second.

Culhane spent the remainder of the race right on Dachnhausen’s bumper, but found himself unable to make a successful bid for the lead. Dachenhausen was first to cross the line, followed by Culhane and Rudinas.

It was a great night for 2012 Sportsman champion Jerry Curry, who came from the sixth starting spot to return to Victory Lane for the first time in a month. Kimberlee Morgan and Greg Morgan made up the front row for the start, and G. Morgan immediately shot out front. Rich Coons, who was the division’s 2009 Rookie of the Year, wasted little time in getting to the front, and he took over the top spot with just four laps in the books.

Two laps later, Curry took over second, and began to apply pressure to Coons. On lap 14, Curry was able to work his way past Coons for the lead. When the checkered flag waved, Curry grabbed the win for the fifth time this season. Coons was second, and Rick Mill came from the eighth starting spot to claim third in only his second appearance at Bethel.

Joseph Graf started on the pole for the Legends pro/Masters/Semi Pro event, and led every lap on his way to his sixth win of the year. The battle of the race was for the second spot, as Richie Coy and Brad Lowmaster battled intensely for the position for 15 laps of the 20-lap event. The pair swapped the spot several times, with Lowmaster laying final claim to it on the final lap of the race. Graf took down the win over Lowmaster and Coy.

In Legends Young Lions action, Teddy Hodgdon put an end to Alex McCollum’s five-race win streak when he collected his first career Legends win. Hodgdon started on the pole, alongside David French. Hodgdon got out front at the drop of the green, and McCollum quickly worked his way to second. Lap after lap, McCollum challenged Hodgdon for the position, but Hodgdon held on to claim victory over McCollum and Andrew Molleur.
Defending Bandolero champion David French claimed his eighth win of the year in a fast-paced event that was slowed by only a single caution on the first lap that ended the night prematurely for pole sitter Eugene Drew. French led every lap, holding off a hard-charging Lars McElravy. Teddy Bowen, who was involved in the first-lap incident and had to pit as a result, came from the rear of the field to cross the line third.

Conner Piasecki took down the win in the Beginner Bandolero feature, ending Tyler Dachenhausen’s four-race win streak. It was Piasecki’s second win of the season. Piasecki started on the pole, but faced pressure from Joey Aungst over the entire race distance. The two were nearly side-by-side coming to the checkered flag, and Piasecki crossed the line just ahead of Aungst. Dachenhausen was third.

The Pro Stock feature event kept fans on the edges of their seats, as a three-way battle for the top spot fueled the excitement over the second half of the event. Vinny Stanton Sr. and Mac Crawson started on the front row, and Stanton was able to grab the top spot for the first six laps of the event. Jim Helt powered his way past Stanton on lap seven, and Kenny Atkins came to second two laps later. At the halfway point, Greg Cohen took over the third spot, setting the stage for the intense battle.

Over the final laps of the race, Helt ran out front, while Atkins challenged him on the outside and Cohen challenged him on the inside. The trio ran in close quarters, and Atkins and Cohen swapped the second spot by mere inches several times. In the end, neither was able to take the top spot from Helt, who collected his second win of the year. Atkins laid final claim to the second spot on the final lap of the event, and Cohen was third.

Gary VanOrden took home his sixth Street Stock win of the year, taking over the points lead from his daughter, defending division champion Amber VanOrden, in the process. Vinny Stanton Jr. took off from the pole and led the first three laps before being passed by G. VanOrden. Just prior to the halfway point, rookie Walt Henry grabbed the second spot, with A. VanOrden taking third one lap later. The top three remained unchanged over the remainder of the event, with G. VanOrden claiming the win over Henry and A. VanOrden.

Brian Bauernfeind notched his first win of the season in the 4 Cylinder Advanced race. The 2013 4 Cylinder Novice champion came from the seventh starting spot to claim the victory. Dan Curry and Jerry Kingeter started on the front row, with Curry getting out front on the initial lap. Mike Travis took over second on lap four, but Bauernfeind was not far behind, and the battle soon heated up between Travis and Bauernfeind for the second spot. On lap 12, Bauernfeind wrestled the spot from Travis, and he grabbed the lead just two laps later. Bauernfeind brought home the win, and Tasha Curry was credited with second in the final rundown. D. Curry was awarded third.

It was a busy night for the 4 Cylinder Novice drivers, as the night kicked off with the completion of the June 20th event that was halted with just two laps in the books due to rain, and they also completed their regular scheduled race for the night. When all was said and done, Lee Cogswell grabbed his first win of the year, while Ryan LaMantia scored his third win.

Dan Bryant took off from the pole when the 4 Cylinder Novice holdover race resumed, with Cogswell on his outside. Cogswell wasted little time putting his car out front, brining LaMantia with him to second. Just prior to the halfway point, Brittany Curry broke into the top three. LaMantia challenged Cogswell lap after lap over the extended green-flag run, but Cogswell held him off to collect the win. LaMantia had to be content with second, and Curry crossed the line third.

LaMantia was not about to settle for second in the nightcap race, as the race once again started with a battle for the lead between LaMantia and Cogswell. LaMantia took the lead with just four laps in the books, leaving Cogswell to contend with David Donovan for second. Just past the halfway point, Donovan laid claim to second. With just five laps to go, Travis Cogswell grabbed third from his father. When the checkered flag waved, LaMantia took down the win, followed by Donovan and T. Cogswell.

BETHEL MOTOR SPEEDWAY BOWS TO WEATHER JULY 4TH

BETHEL, NY – After running nine consecutive points events to kick off the season without a single rainout, Bethel Motor Speedway was forced to bow to Mother Nature for the second week in a row this past Saturday, July 5th. The speedway grounds were already saturated from heavy rains at the beginning of the week, and additional heavy rains in the morning hours on Saturday led to the cancellation of the evening’s racing program.

The rainout sets the stage for an exciting upcoming event on Saturday, July 11th, as the season schedule hits the halfway point. Several tight points battles – including one in the Street Stock division, where defending division champion Amber VanOrden leads her father by a single point – are sure to lead to plenty of action on the quarter-mile asphalt oval.

This coming Saturday, July 11th, is Camera Night, which is always a fan favorite. During intermission, fans are invited to get up close and personal with the cars and stars of weekly racing at the track, as the cars are put on display on the track surface.drivers and cars take to the track surface for a meet-and-greet. The night’s events will kick off with the completion of the 4 Cylinder Novice race that was unable to be completed on June 20th. Also on the schedule are races for the BMS Modified, 358/Sportsman, Legends, Bandolero, Pro Stock, Street Stock, and 4 Cylinder Advanced classes. The 4 Cylinder Novice class will compete in a second race, as they will then run their rewgularly scheduled race for the night.

Gates open at 2:30 pm, with hot laps at 4:30 pm, and racing action set to go green at 6 pm. Grandstand admission is just $6. More information, including a complete 2015 schedule, can be obtained online at www.bethelmotorspeedway.com, or by calling (845) 319-7908.
