Fifteen-Year-Old James Bickford is Crowned Late Model Champion at All American Speedway ROSEVILLE, CA (September 14, 2013) – James Bickford, in his rookie season racing a Late Model car, came away with the race win and the 2013 NASCAR All American Late Model Series championship at All American Speedway in Roseville, California. It came down to the last race to decide the championship, with Bickford leading by a mere two points coming into the night’s race. All Bickford had to do to win the championship was finish ahead of his closest competitor, and that is exactly what he did. Bickford posted the fastest time in the first practice session, with a 14.225 second lap. Bickford went on to qualify number one with a 13.965 second lap. With an invert of six, Bickford started from the outside of row three. Bickford moved up to third on lap eight, and took away second on lap 30. Bickford’s Eibach Springs equipped Late Model bolted into the lead on lap 35. From there on it was easy sailing for Bickford, who pulled way ahead of the field. A couple of late restarts brought the field back together, but Bickford was able to lunge ahead on every restart, and then sail over the finish line first. It was Bickford’s sixth win of the year. Bickford thanked his sponsors, including Eibach Springs, in a rowdy victory lane celebration. “I feel like I am on top of the world,” 15-year old Bickford said after the race. “I came into this season just looking to get some practice, and maybe to win or two, but I never imagined winning the championship.”

Kramer Carries Momentum from Patriot 100 to Lawrenceburg for 16th Victory of 2013 LAWRENCEBURG, IN (September 18, 2013) – Joey Kramer’s ‘Will to Win’ drove him to his fifteenth win of the 2013 campaign with back-to-back victories at Lincoln Park Speedway and Lawrenceburg Speedway. Kramer hasn’t visited Lincoln Park Speedway often, especially with his Eibach Springs equipped No. 77 UMP Modified. However, in a return to the Putnamville oval, Kramer continued his dominance in the latter half of the 2013 season. Kramer was one of the fastest in group qualifying, starting second-fastest overall, and then parlayed a front row starting spot into a powerful victory in the 10th running of the Patriot 100 at Lincoln Park Speedway. Kramer led all 100 laps to top the field. With 39 cars on hand for the $3,000-to-win show, Kramer left little to chance on his way to the victory, stretching out his lead to nearly a straightaway after a caution with 11 laps remaining. In fact, Kramer lapped the field all the way up to the top-five positions in an impressive show. Kramer worked the topside cushion to perfection and built a straightaway lead before a caution lead the field into the 50-lap break for crews to make changes to the cars. Just one caution flew over the second set of 50 laps and it was with 11 laps remaining. Kramer took care of the remaining laps despite having a broken push bar before nabbing his 15th victory of the 2013 season. Kramer carried the momentum into Lawrenceburg Speedway for the Merrill Downey Memorial race. Kramer was patient for the first few laps of the 44-lap feature event before he began his march toward the front. However, cautions would keep the field bunched up, setting up an epic battle that saw Kramer and a competitor side-by-side for 15-laps. Kramer would not be denied, as his Eibach Springs equipped Modified led the final 20 laps en route to victory lane. Kramer has now claimed 16 A-main wins during the 2013 season, including seven straight over a three-week span.

By lap twelve of the 25-lap feature, Wallace was in the lead and his Eibach Springs equipped Late Model pulled away from the field. Wallace dominated the remaining laps and crossed the finish line 10 car lengths over his nearest competition. “The car is the best it has been all year,” said an excited Wallace in victory lane.
