Eibach Springs Dominates Fall Jamboree with Gustin and Shryock's Wins and Sanders's USMTS Championship SPRING VALLEY, MN (September 21, 2013) — Eibach Springs could not have scripted a better finish in the opening feature at the 15th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree, or a more thrilling finish to the Hunt for the USMTS Casey's Cup. After a 24-hour delay for rain and time constraints at the Deer Creek Speedway, the season-long battle to become the next USMTS National Champion came down to three drivers slugging it out down to the last corner of the last lap of the last race. In a 40-lap main event that had more action from front to back than one person's pair of eyeballs could possibly follow all at once, it was Ryan Gustin getting the win after holding off another member of Team Eibach Springs, Rodney Sanders, in a side-by-side battle from start to finish. While Gustin came into the final points race in the Hunt for the USMTS Casey's Cup already eliminated from the title hunt, he did the next best thing by winning a main event at the Featherlite Fall Jamboree for the first time in his career. And while Sanders finished second to the two-time defending USMTS National Champion, his effort was enough to capture the 2013 USMTS National Championship-the first of his career and the first for a driver from the State of Texas. Gustin led all but two laps as Sanders was able to sneak underneath to lead laps 19-20. It was the 66th career win for the 22-year-old from Marshalltown, Iowa, and put $3,000 in his pocket. Jason Krohn's Eibach Springs equipped Modified maneuvered to a third-place finish with a last-lap pass for an all-Eibach Springs podium. Gustin's last USMTS victory was at the Cedar County Raceway in Tipton, Iowa on August 29, where the 22-year-old from Marshalltown, Iowa, took the lead with nine laps in the books and blistered the field over the final 31 circuits to score his fourth win of the season and first during 'The Hunt.'
Nine-time USMTS National Champion Kelly Shryock stole the lead on the final turn of the feature in his last USMTS victory at the Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Missouri in August. His second win of the season came during round two of the 15th Annual Featherline Fall Jamboree in a much different fashion, as the nine-time USMTS National Champion led from wire-to-wire in the $4,000 to win 40-lap feature event. Shryock immediately took command and built a ten-car-length lead by lap 9 when the race's pace slowed for a caution flag. Shortly after the restart, most of the field began to fall in line as the middle groove of the track started to blacken from the rubber built up after 417 laps previously run on the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval Friday night. From that point forward, nobody could get close to Shryock as the Eibach Springs equipped #3 sailed into the winners circle to record Shryock's 180th career USMTS victory and his first at Deer Creek Speedway in 44 USMTS events here since May 26, 2007. "It's been a long time," Shryock said in victory lane. "We're not the biggest funded team but I'll tell you there's nobody works harder than our group. We just keep working and we're not giving up." The 2007 USMTS National Champion Jason Krohn finished third for the second time.

"To win 29 races, track championships at Motor Mile Speedway and South Boston Speedway, the Dirty Dozen championship, the Virginia State title, and back to back National Championships is just unbelievable!"
U.S. National Dirt Track Championship -
Chris Brown Wins Again in U.S. National Dirt Track Championship SPRING, TX (September 24, 2013) — Chris Brown took part in the Port-A-Cool U.S. National Dirt Track Championship over the weekend, which saw 91 entries register for battle in the $3,000-to-win event at the state-of-the-art facility, and he came away with the big win for the second year in a row in his Eibach Springs equipped #21 Open Wheel Modified.
Brown started his outing by charging from his 10th starting spot to a 2nd place finish in the heat race. Via his performance, Chris locked into the 3rd starting spot in the A-main qualifier, and he advanced to a second place finish to lock into the middle-front-row starting spot for the finale. As the feature went green with the field lined up three wide, Brown bolted to the lead and never looked back on his way to the victory, which marked his second straight in the event and third win of 2013. On September 7th, Brown was crowned the 2nd Annual David Pope Memorial at the Salina High banks in Salina, Oklahoma.

Tony Jackson Jr., who finished second to Stovall in the weekend opener, was fifth in the finale to wrap up his first MARS Championship.
Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) -
Renezeder Clinches LOORRS Championship at Las Vegas; Deegan, Anderson, MacCachren, Cheek, and Morris Score Wins LAS VEGAS, NV (September 26, 2013) — Equipped with Eibach Springs, Carl Renezeder secured his ninth national championship title after scoring his 114th win during the 13th and 14th rounds of the LOORS at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. In Round 13, Renezeder battled hard before making a great pass for the lead with less than two laps remaining in the Pro-4 division. Renezeder held off challenges to score the victory by just a nose at the finish line. In Round 13, Renezeder started on the pole in the Pro-2 division with the six-truck inversion.
He held onto the lead for several laps, but when he made a mistake in turn four, Renezeder fell from the lead. Renezeder remained patient and on the final lap of the race he closed back in on the leader in turn one, and then retook the lead on the backstretch.
It was the second win of the season in that class and long overdue. Just a short time later, Renezeder climbed into his Pro-4 to claim another podium finish, this time in second behind the Eibach Springs equipped machine of Rob MacCachren, and his ninth career short-course championship.
In just fourteen rounds of racing, where each finishing position is separated by only two points, he managed to distance himself from the rest of the competitors by over 50 points, clinching the title with one more points race to run in October.
In Round 13 of the Modified Kart division, Points leader Myles Cheek jumped out to an early lead in his Eibach Springs equipped #1 kart. Cheek was unchallenged as he picked up the win and extended his points lead. After finishing second in Round 14, Cheek once again widened his gap back to second place in the title chase with one round remaining. Bradley Morris also increased the Eibach Springs win total in the Pro Buggy division in Round 13. Morris ran second early in the race before moving into the lead. Morris battled his own issues, though, as rocks in his throttle linkage left him with what amounted to an on/off switch for a gas pedal. The young man kept his cool, though, and stayed out front to take his fifth win of the season.
In Round 14, RJ Anderson and Round 13 winner Brian Deegan rounded out the top five early in the Pro-Lite Unlimited race in the top five as the field lined back up behind the pace truck. Racing resumed at the end of lap three, and on the restart lap, Deegan dropped several spots up in turn one. Deegan had a great restart on the following caution, as he got back up to fifth once again.
After a third full course yellow, on the restart lap, Anderson forced the leader wide at turn six to take the top spot. When a caution set the field up for a green-white-checkered finish, Anderson was poised in the first position, while Deegan sat third after battling his way through the field. Deegan moved into second on the restart lap to take over second, and tried his best to get up and challenge Anderson for the lead over the final lap.
Anderson was too strong, though, and scored a measure of redemption after suffering a gut-wrenching end to his title hopes last thanks to a crash and subsequent fire in Round 13, as he took his fifth win of the season in the Eibach Springs equipped #1. Deegan was second in the Eibach Springs adorned #38, and now needs to score no more than two points from a possible 52 in the final race next month to take his third Pro Lite Unlimited championship. Sheldon Creed finished third to deliver an all-Eibach podium, and is the only other driver who still has a mathematical chance at the title in this class.
