The first green flag waves at 7:30 pm.

Jeff Searles, who’s memory the night is dedicated was a huge fan of the popular Yates County speedway for years.  He rarely missed an event at the track and his premature death several years ago has left a huge void at the facility.

“Jeff was a great guy, and he was a big supporter of Outlaw Speedway going back to the 1990’s, stated track owner, Tyler Siri.  He was an extremely likeable person that lit up the pit area with his smile and enthusiasm.  He hung out in the turn two pit area bleachers and cheered on every driver as they passed by.  It is once again with a great deal of pleasure that we have a night in Jeff’s memory.”

With the race season at the halfway point in the 2022 campaign, increased attention will now be paid to the point standings in all seven of Outlaw Speedway’s weekly adult divisions plus the Bandits.  It will be interesting to see if a new Track Champion will be crowned in the Friendly Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Modified Division.  Hurricane Steve Paine is looking to back up his 2021 Modified Track Championship at Outlaw Speedway and he currently sits solidly in the top ten.  However, there are a whole slew of others poised to claim the title including the likes of Jeff Daugherty, Ajay Potrzebowski Jr., Alex Payne, Kyle Coffey, Cory Costa and Brady Fultz.  

It is a forgone conclusion that the Swarthout Recycling 600 Modifieds will have an inaugural champion.  James Randall, PJ Goodwin and Chelsie Beebe will all be looking to claim the track title in this upstart division. 

It will be a slug fest in both 602 Crate Sportsman Divisions.  Former Sunrise Insulation AR Tire Outlaw Speedway class track champions in Chris Fisher and Karl Comfort look good in the first half of the season However, there are a few young guns that have positioned themselves to be title contenders. Justice Mayo and Carter Crooker are barely able to shave, yet these kids are as good as they come. In the Speed Connection DIRTcar Hoosier Tire Sportsman Alex Payne has had a strong first half of the season as has veteran racer, Stacy Jackson along with perennial class regular AJ Lloyd.

Glen Whritenour looks poised to go back-to-back-to-back in the Stan’s No Tubes Street Stock Division which would make five in the last six seasons.  However, GW does not have to look hard over his shoulder to find a whole bunch of heavy weights lurking including the likes of veteran wheelmen, CJ Guerri and Jimmy Grant as well as local favorite Jared Hill.  

In the Winner’s Circle Deli Mini Stocks last year Scott Lehman walked away with the Track Championship.  Thus far in 2022 he is nowhere to be found perhaps taking a year off which leaves the door wide open for a new champion.  Jayson Smart has plenty of experience, but Lee Fritz may have other ideas as well as Tony Dickerson and a few others.

In the Fritz Masonry Youth Bandit Division, Elle Grant has had a wonderful first half of the year, but Gavin Hall and Connor Erick are easily withing striking distance.  Still way to early to call in this point battle.

Last but certainly not least the NAPA sponsored Hobby Stock Division finds Marc Minutolo looking to repeat his 2021 title. Minutolo (MM) is right in the thick of things and he has won previous titles in the division for good reason; the guy is good, and his equipment is dependable making it a tough combination.  Brian Lloyd and Justin Eldredge do not appear to be the kind of guys to buckle under pressure so this one will go down to the double point season finale.
