The six-week Winter Flurry racing series at Atlanta Motor Speedway continued with week 5 on Saturday, March. 21, setting up the season finale, set for April 4.

Allen Rider of Social Circle led the first half of the Beginner Bandoleros feature race from the pole until a spin on the 10th lap allowed Noah Dominy to slide into the lead position. Multiple wrecks in the closing laps whittled the field down to just two cars taking the checkered flag, as Dominy claimed the victory and Covington's Cameron Potter was second. Ryan Younginer of Jonesboro was credited third, Morgan McConnel of Dallas was fourth and Rider rounded out the field in fifth place.

In the Bandits feature race, Clay Thompson of Powersville, Week 4's winner, took the pole and led the first four laps, but it was Lawson Ingold of Social Circle who put on a clinic the rest of the race, claiming the victory and racking crucial points to close the gap behind Thompson in the overall points standings. Ingold eclipsed Thompson on lap 5 and never looked back, leading the rest of the way for his second win of the season. Blaize Maddox of Locust Grove claimed second place, Nathan Jackson of McDonough was third, and Thompson rounded out the field.

Joshua Hicks of Senoia won his second straight race in the Outlaws Division, widening his lead in the points standings. After several cautions and lead changes, Hicks grabbed the lead on the 10th lap and held off several charges down the stretch by both Austin Geer and Stockbridge's Conner Younginer to take the checkered flag. Geer finished second and Younginer took third. Hayden Swank of Woodstock finished fourth, and Ricky Springer of McDonough rounded out the top five.

Jensen Jorgensen of Stockbridge claimed his first victory of the season in the Semi-Pro feature race. After a fierce battle near the front of the field, Jorgensen passed Cartersville's Zach Leonhardi midway through race, and it was a battle for second place from then on. Amber Fleeman of Dacula fought through an aggressive field to finish second, while Dylan Murry of Cumming claimed third place. Brandon Brock of Hampton and Bailey Woodall of McDonough finished fourth and fifth respectively.

William Plemmons Jr. of Locust Grove took the lead on the 15th lap and led the rest of the way in the Master's feature race to take the checkered flag. Scott Mosely of McDonough won the pole and led 11 total laps through the middle of the 20-lap race, but it wasn't enough to hold off the late-surging Plemmons. After the third green flag to start the race, it was McDonough's Robbie Woodall who emerged in the front of the field. But four laps later, Mosely eclipsed Woodall and settled into a groove before Plemmons made his move in the closing laps. Dunwoody's Mark Swan and Bill Plemmons, Jr. rounded out the top-five.

The sixth and final week of the affordable, family-friendly Winter Flurry racing series hits the Atlanta Motor Speedway "Thunder Ring" on Saturday, April 4. Infield admission is just $12 for adults, $5 for children ages six through 11 and free for children ages five and under.

2013-2014 ATLANTA MOTORSPEEDWAY WINTER FLURRY CHAMPIONSHIPS ANNOUNCED

iAtlanta Motor Speedway Announces 2013-2014 Winter Flurry Racing Series Champions

Monday, April 21, 2014
 27  2 Google +0  0

Highlighted by a plethora of hotly contested races during the winter months, Atlanta Motor Speedway announced season points champions in its Legends and Bandolero Winter Flurry racing series on the Speedway's quarter-mile "Thunder Ring."

Champions were determined by accumulating points from seven different Winter Flurry feature events with their lowest finish of the season not counting in determining the standings. The season finale on April 19 was cancelled due to inclement weather.

The season champions in Bandolero racing divisions are Chandler Smith in Bandits and Ashton Winger in Outlaws. The Legends division champions are Woodrow Mullis in Young Lions, Taylor Jorgensen in Semi-Pro, Don Chandler in Masters and Madeline Crane in the Pro division.

Smith, of Talking Rock, won five-of-seven races claiming first place ahead of Lawson Ingold from Social Circle and Powersville's Clay Thompson. Winger, from Fayetteville, won all but one race within the Outlaw division, edging Stockbridge's Jensen Jorgensen for the championship.

In the Young Lions division, Mullis, from Hoboken, won all seven races en route to beating out Cartersville's Zach Leonhardi for first place with Stockbridge's Taylor Jorgensen taking the Semi-Pro title in front of Aaron Bailey of Burlington, N.C. and Bailey Woodall from McDonough.

Helped by two feature wins, Crane, of Meansville, won the Pro championship with Chandler's Masters title coming thanks to not only winning three feature events, but also as a result of the Macon driver being the only Masters competitor with a top-five finish in each feature event. Chandler's championship is his first at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Legends and Bandolero racing returns to Atlanta Motor Speedway on May 17 for the start of the annual summer Thursday Thunder racing series. Additional Thursday Thunder events are scheduled on June 5, June 12, June 19, June 25, June 26, July 3, July 10, July 17 and July 24.

Each week, Thursday Thunder will present an interactive experience for families and every Thursday event will feature an autograph session with competitors. Plus there will be contests and games for spectators to participate in while in the grandstands.

Tickets for the affordable, family-friendly racing series cost just $6 for adults, $2 for children ages 6 through 11 and free for children ages 5 and younger.

A tight battle for the top spot in the Outlaw Bandolero division was blown open by Ashton Winger of Fayetteville in the seventh feature race of Winter Flurry.

2012 Bandolero Nationals 9.22.12 , Sunny South Raceway, Grand Bay , Alabama

Ashton Winger and Seth Werner take Bandolero Nationals Victories

 




 

September 22, 2012 – Sunny South Raceway has never seen such a display of skill, passion, and intensity from Bando drivers. This past weekend the finest drivers in the nation assembled just south of Mobile, Alabama to battle for the National title. Drivers hailed from all over the country. Matthew Davey traveled cross country from Arizona while Cory Cootware dropped down south from Iron Mountain, Michigan. A strong contingent of drivers from North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Texas descended upon Grand Bay to take part in this prestigious event.

In the Bandit Division (ages 8-11), Kodie Conner and Michael Meek entered the weekend tied at the top of the leader board with 2100 points. This event would serve as their tie-breaker, with the highest finisher locking up the National Points Championship. Both drivers had dominated portions of the season and racked up 21 separate 100 point wins. Neither driver was unaccustomed to tough competition. Last season Michael Meek finished 2nd to Carson Ferguson with 2100 points and Kodie Conner wound up 16th with 1992 points. Both drivers entered with almost four full years of experience racing with INEX!!

Each driver competed in qualifying, two rounds of heat races and then the main event. Ashton Winger, an INEX driver for three years, grabbed the fast qualifying time with a 13.426. The top five drivers were separated by less than 2 tenths of a second.

In Round One of the heat races Michael Meek was able to edge Ashton by only .18 while Kodie Conner gapped the field in his heat race. Chandler Smith and local driver Connor Okrzesik finished 1st and 2nd in their event. After a four car invert (decided by a roll of the dice by the fast qualifier Winger) Round One heats began. Winger was able to drive from 4th to 1st in his heat followed by M. Meek and fellow Georgia driver Zach Leonhardi. Kodie Conner held off Connor Younginer and Tyson Goudy (from Texas) to collect his second heat race win. Zachary Dabbs powered to second just behind Chandler Smith wrapping up the last heat of the day. After all the results from qualifying and both rounds of heat races were tallied Kodie Conner took the pole position by one point from Chandler Smith and two points from Ashton Winger. Zach Leonhardi, E.J. Hodges and first year driver Lawson Ingold held their own to round out the top 10. Zachary Dabbs, Cam Mitchell, Dalon Moore, and Carson Meek all registered some quick times or finishes but had their work cut out for them after some technical issues during heat races. Everything was set for an exciting A-Main event!!

Unfortunately, for a few cars, there was a pile up in turn four of lap 1 of the Main Event. Cam Mitchell and Kamera McDonald, both from Texas, were among the unlucky. After safety workers cleared the wreckage the race resumed with the 12W of Ashton Winger up front. Caution came out again on lap 9 for a spin by Goudy. Blake Cisneros had a brake issue and left the track under caution. Winger, Meek, Conner, E.J. Hodges, and Smith made up the top 5 on lap 10. Another spin on lap 22 brought out the caution for the 3rd time and again on lap 25 for caution number four. This set up a mad dash to the end with championships on the line. Kodie Conner passed Michael Meek on lap 28 but Meek passed back on the very next lap. This let Winger stretch out his lead. Tyson Goudy made a strong push in the last few laps to drive from 11th to 6th, just barely missing the top five.

Ashton Winger of Fayetteville, GA completed an almost wire to wire win (he took the lead during the first lap), followed by Michael Meek 2nd, Chandler Smith 3rd, Zach Leonhardi 4th, Kodie Conner 5th, Tyson Goudy 6th, E.J. Hodges 7th, Zachary Dabbs 8th, Dalon Moore 9th, Cooner Younginer 10th, Laswon Ingold 11th, Conner Okrzesik 12th, Carson Meek 13th, Kamera McDonald 14th, Blake Cisneros 15th, Cam Mitchell 16th.

The Outlaw division (ages 12 and up), had their own drama. Taylor Jorgensen of Stockbridge GA, and Seth Werner from Iron Station, NC had set themselves up for a big showdown. While neither has the full 2100 points, both are capable of reaching that mark before the end of the point season. Even though these two drivers are number one and two in the points it wasn’t going to be easy for them. Six of the top ten drivers in the nation attended this event. Seth proved to be the class of the field, laying down a new track record of 13.346 during qualifying. He was followed up by Jacob Heafner and Alex Reece. Again, the top five drivers were separated by just 2 tenths. Ashley Caldwell, from Concord, NC and Taylor Jorgensen rounded out the top five.

Werner powered to a win in Round One of his heat race followed by Alex Reece. Jacob Hefner Clyde Tucker from Florida, and Jensen Jorgensen put on a great show during their heat race. Jensen hit the wall coming out of turn four bringing out a lengthy caution. Jensen was fine however his crew had a lot of work to do before the main events. Heafner, Tucker, and Caldwell finished 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively. Round Two Heats began after a 3 car invert. Seth Werner again took home the top spot to secure the pole for the main event with a perfect score of 400. Taylor Jorgensen was able to get by Alex Reece this time with Miguel Cesar Jr. of Clemmons, NC right at their heels. Ashely Caldwell was able to get past Tucker in Round 2 but Heafner proved to be too strong and grabbed his second checkered flag of the day. Alton Clark and Cory Cootware were not far behind in this tight heat race.

With the grid settled and the sun set the Bandolero Outlaws took the track to finish what they started. Werner led the field to the green and the race was underway. Caution came out on lap 2 for a spin on the front stretch by Caldwell. Contact between Sunny South’s own, Jacob Stokes and Matthew Davey almost sent Davey flipping end over end in turn 1 but he held on. Jacob Heafner got the inside of Reece on lap 9 as Werner began to click the laps down. Jensen Jorgensen was able to get his car back together and even though he started dead last he was up to 6th by lap 10. Ashley Caldwell brushed the wall shortly after but again was able to skillfully maneuver her car off the track before the yellow could come out.

Heafner tried his best to reel in Werner, and was gaining in the closing laps, however he ran out of time and Werner walked away with a green to checker finish. With the field strung out at the end Werner took home the win followed by Heafner 2nd, Alex Reece 3rd, Taylor Jorgensen 4th, Clyde Tucker 5th, Jensen Jorgensen 6th, Miguel Cesar Jr. 7th, Alton Clark 8th, Jacob Stokes 9th, Cory Cootware 10th, Ashley Caldwell 11th, and Matthew Davey 12th.

The Executive Technical Director for INEX, Scott Reinhardt, impounded the top 5 cars from each race and with the help of local Tech Inspector Jimmy Brown put the cars through their paces. Each car passed the initial tests. Reinhardt took the engines of each winner to be torn down in the Engine Shop at USLCI headquarters in Harrisburg, NC. Terry Percy, responsible for building all the Briggs and Stratton Bandolero engines, inspected each engine and determined that everything was legal. All cars cleared tech and results are now official.

Sunny South had the privilege to see amazing side-by-side action, cross-over moves, and the best collection of Bando talent assembled this season. US Legend Cars International and INEX Corp. would like to thank Sunny South Raceway for hosting this event. The staff was courteous and welcoming to all. This banked ¼ mile track was well maintained and provided the chance for all the drivers to shine!! We would also like to personally thank each and every driver, parent, grandparent, sponsor, and crew member; everyone who sacrificed and worked to attend all of our events throughout the year. This was an exciting season and we look forward to seeing you all at the track in 2013. Be among the Champions next year and let’s make 2013 the best year ever!!

Social Circle youth finds his passion on the race track

8-year-old veteran is youngest in his class

Published : Walton County Tribune, Georgia  Sunday  January  29, 2012


Posted: Sunday, January 29, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 2:29 pm, Fri Jan 27, 2012.

For 8-year-old Lawson Ingold of Social Circle, he found his passion ... well ... when he was a kid.

Lawson has been racing in the Quarter Midget and Bandolero divisions at various race tracks around the southeast since before his fifth birthday. 

Even though he made the all-star team on his youth football squad last year, Lawson has no plans to veer from his first love. Racing in front of thousands of fans at venues such as Lanier Raceway and Atlanta Motor Speedway will do that to you. 

His talent has not gone unnoticed by sponsors. Having recently received a new Bandolero car courtesy of a local sponsor, Lawson will be retiring from Quarter Midget racing this year so he can switch exclusively to the Bandolero circuit. 

Bandolero racing is sanctioned by U.S. Legends cars and is a spec race car for 8-16 year olds. Atlanta Motor Speedway, Lowes Motor Speedway, Concord, Lanier, Gresham and many local tracks are venues for these cars. Lawson will still be racing Quarter Midgets in two classes in 2012, but on a limited schedule to devote seat time to this new series. 

Not only is he enjoying the sport, Lawson is forever improving. In 2011 he registered three wins, 18 top-three finishes and 23 top fives against drivers ranging from 8 to 16 years of age.

More on Lawson can be found on his Facebook page — Ingold Motorsports or his Web site at lawsoningoldracing.com.

One concern about children who attach themselves to one activity is the possibility of burnout. Lawson’s father, Kevin, realizes the sport must remain fun for his son and goes above and beyond is duty to keep things in perspective. 

Racing in the youth division usually consists of 20 laps.

“His mom and I want to be sure Lawson enjoys everything about racing, so we don’t put pressure on him to enter a certain number of events and stress winning above all else,” Kevin Ingold said. “We want him to race as long as he wants to. If the time comes when he gets tired of it, we’ll gladly move on to something else.”

Lawson appears to have a grasp of what he’s doing and appears mature beyond his years when talking about his favorite sport.

“I’ve played football and baseball and other stuff, but I enjoy the challenge of driving and improving my skills at different tracks,” he said. “I want to eventually go all the way to the Sprint Cup Series.”

Lawson lists winning the Region 3 race in Huntsville, Ala. last year as his biggest thrill to date. He drove a quarter midget car to victory. 

A couple of weeks ago, the elementary school student finished second in his new Bandolero car at Lanier Speedway.

“That was really cool because it was only my second race in the car,” he said.

The Ingolds are already spreadly their passion around, having recently picked up a young enthusiastic driver from Monroe who would like to follow in Lawson’s footsteps.

“We think racing is a great sport for young kids,” Kevin said. “We’re excited that a couple of area kids have contacted us about learning more about what we’re doing.”

The Ingolds continue to accept sponsors for their team. A few Bandolero races can be seen on the Speed Network and all are available on the Internet, offering good exposure.
