DGR NCWTS Recap: Richmond Raceway

Hailie Deegan qualified 24th for the Worldwide Express 250 for Carrier Appreciation in her second career appearance at Richmond Raceway. The 21-year-old hovered around her starting position for the race's opening laps, telling Crew Chief Jerry Baxter and the No. 1 team that she was struggling with a loose condition on corner entry and exit. A pit crew violation would send Deegan to 32nd on the subsequent restart, forcing her to claw through field in order to reach 21st position by the conclusion of stage two. A commitment line violation on the next round of pit stops would relegate Deegan to back of the pack for the final stage, relegating the Temecula, CA native to a 26th-place finish.

Standerfer Completes Clean Sweep at Macon Speedway

It all starts with qualifying. At least for the Decatur Building Trades Pro Late Models and the Modifieds, it does. The other divisions draw for their starting positions. As for Rodney Standerfer in the Modifieds, qualifying was just the beginning of his success. Of the 17 cars in his division, Standerfer was the quickest car across the 1/5th mile track. That helped set him up on the front row of his heat race due to the division going fastest-to-slowest in order. After the eight laps, Standerfer had a win. Thanks to a dice roll inversion, Standerfer started in the third position, second row inside, and needed a good start to move past Jeremy Nichols and Tim Luttrell for the lead. He managed to do so and then held off the rest of the cars to nab his fourth feature win of 2022 and extend his points lead in the division over Guy Taylor. Taylor entered the night 24 points behind Standerfer for the track championship and the lead would grow as Taylor finished behind Luttrell and Cody Stillwell.

Newgarden's the man to beat at World Wide Technology Raceway (August 20 NTT INDYCAR SERIES Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Axalta and Valvoline)

NTT INDYCAR SERIES driver Josef Newgarden pretty much has figured out World Wide Technology Raceway. In the space of five years, he’s won the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 three times. Going back to 1997, when Indy cars began racing at WWTR, no one else has won more than once at the egg-shaped oval. Considered a short oval by INDYCAR drivers, the track presents unique challenges: Turns 1 and 2 and different from Turns 3 and 4. It doesn’t seem to bother Newgarden – he’s dialed in at WWTR.
