"New Talent Dominates the MMSA this week"
The MMSA Winged Warrior Tour made their last
appearance of 2015 at Lincoln Park Speedway this
Saturday. Track conditions were favorable and the
field was a great mix of new and old faces. The
scene was set for some great high speed MMSA action.
Fast cars stacked heat one including Drew Dorsett
(10), making his first return since last winning
with the MMSA at Paragon Speedway earlier in the
month Justin Lewis (77), who also won earlier in the
season, and a very fast Danny Fitzgerald (88x) who
recently has been a contender.
With the drop of the green they mixed it up, a hard
charging Colin Parker (25) looked very promising in
the first few laps keeping his car out front with a
close following Colin Miller 2m and Dorsett (10).
Parker would pull it in on lap 3 with mechanical
issues leaving a battle to ensue between Dorsett
(10) and Miller (2m). Meanwhile, further back side
by side for 5 laps straight the 00 of Cory Meadows
and the 77 of Justin Lewis battle for position. The
heat went green to checkers without an issue and at
the conclusion would see Colin Miller of Columbus
Indiana victorious over Dorsett (10), Fitzgerald
(88x), Smith (11), Lewis (77), Meadows (00), and
Heat number two rolled from staging with no lack of
talent including drivers Kevin Rice (7) who recently
has returned from a long break from racing, Dave
Dorsett (15) the same, two former series Champions
Scott Bradley (1x) and Andy Bradley (86), the (50)
of Daniel Henderson and the familiar BMW powered
number (51) of Paul Davis. This heat also included
three drivers making their first MMSA appearances.
The (23s) of Brad Strunk, the 98 of Brett Davis, and
the (2j) of Jeramie England. Brett Davis (98) and
Henderson (50) would bring the field to green, with
Davis (98) taking the advantage, Paul Davis (51) and
the (7) of Kevin Rice would battle for 3rd.
Henderson (50) would fall back letting the elder
Dorsett (15) around. Meanwhile from row 3
Bloomington's Andy Bradley would begin a charge from
the bottom of the race track, Dorsett (15) would
follow. Brad Strunk (23s) and the 1x of Scott
Bradley also battled with Strunk taking the higher
line and the advantage. Andy Bradley would get the
(86) into clean air and would pull away with heat 2,
he was followed to the line by Dorsett (15), the
rookie Brad Strunk (23s), Bradley (1x), the (7) of
Kevin Rice, Davis (51), Brett Davis (98), Henderson
(50), and England in the (2j). Heat 2 was also very
swift with no cautions and all green flag laps.
The MMSA racers enjoyed a lengthy break as the LPS
modified division ran heat races and readied for the
Patriot 100, which the 100 lap feature would be the
main event of the evening. The MMSA racers and
officials were very appreciative of track promoters
Joe and Jill Spiker along with the competition
director for running our feature program first.
Once the track was cleared of the other divisions
the MMSA crew had the racers lined up and ready. The
passing points system, which was developed to
promote more competition had done just that mixing
the top 6, and putting two rookies on the front
Fitzgerald (88x), and Strunk (23s) would bring the
field to green. A flawless start the field completed
lap one with no incident. Strunk (23s) would lead
the field, with Fitzgerald in tow, followed by the
2m of Miller. A family battle between the Dorsetts
(10) (15) going three wide with the (86) of Bradley
would give Strunk (23s) and Fitzgerald (88x) some
breathing room. Drew Dorsett (10) would eventually
break free and give chase to the (2m) of Miller.
Meanwhile further back Lewis (77) would slip by the
elder Bradley in the (1x) although both charging to
the front. Parker (25) also moved towards the front
overtaking Chambers (18c), Davis (51), and Brett
Davis (98). As the field thinned out, Dorsett (10)
would move into third overtaking Miller (2m),
meanwhile at the point Strunk (23s) had his hands
full with Danny Fitzgerald (88x) holding a narrow
margin. Dave Dorsett (15) struggled to find the line
letting Lewis (77) and Bradley (1x) to slip by. With
three laps remaining Strunk would lead Fitzgerald
but a new challenge to both in the number 10 of
Dorsett had joined the party. The rookie points
leader Danny Fitzgerald must have known time was
running out has he hauled his 88x in next to Strunk
(23s) trying to take the advantage with Dorsett
nipping at his tail. The white flag was presented
and you could throw a blanket over the top 3 as they
entered turn one. Again side by side down the back
stretch it looked to be Fitzgerald with the
advantage in turn three Dorsett would set up a
slider but Strunk would move to the bottom and under
Fitzgerald who got loose, at the line it was Strunk
(23s) by a minimal margin, followed Fitzgerald
(88x), and close by the 10 of Dorsett.
The feature event also went green to checkered
without incident. MMSA would like to thank Joe and
Jill Spiker again for providing an excellent
facility for us this year. We would also like to
thank all our racers and sponsors for putting on a
This weekend the tour heads south to Chandler Motor
Speedway, and the "Class Track" of Tri State
Speedway, come see the premiere support series in
action this weekend as we race for the kids of St
Jude's Children's Hospital.
Collin Ambrose has won his 3rd race in a row
When the dust settled at the legendary Brownstown
Speedway, a familiar winner occupied the winners circle.
The 36 of Collin Ambrose has won his 3rd race in a row.
With the surface black and slick, many expected to see
an Ambrose in victory lane. What was not expected was
the phenomenal drive of MMSA rookie Danny Fitzgerald
(88x). With the MMSA passing points and protocol Danny
started on the outside of the first row. Andy Bradley
(86) brought the field to green, and Fitzgerald (88x)
hopped out to an immediate advantage. A red flag would
hinder the first few laps, as the 14 of Tad Cheek would
stall and cause the 20 of Tyler Kendell to get upside
down. Kendell (20) would walk away but his car would be
done for the night. Fitzgerald would bring the field to
green once again battling Bradley (86) on the bottom, he
would again pull an advantage. Fitzgerald would lead 17
laps before Collin Ambrose (36) finally took the point
after working his way through the pack. After the race
Ambrose said "Brownstown is tricky, you have to go slow
to go fast". Fitzgerald would hold on to 2nd and current
points leader Scotty Bradley 1x would capture 3rd.
The series travels to another prestigious track this
Saturday, you can find the "Winged Warriors" at
Putnamvilles' Lincoln Park Speedway.

|"Collin Ambrose ends Andy Bradley's winning streak, and starts a streak of his own creating a mid season rivalry"
A great weekend of racing culminated in back to back wins for
Owensboro's Collin Ambrose sweeping the weekends events. Chandler Motor
Speedway hosted Friday's race in front of a sold out crowd. The near
perfect track conditions provided exciting side by side racing through
out the night. Heat one was locked up by the 77 of Justin Lewis,
followed by Scott Bradley (1x), and Collin Ambrose (36). Heat 2 was
dominated by the 86 of Andy Bradley followed by Jake Hodge (1jr) and
Brandon Smith (11).
The MMSAs feature event was the first on
tap for the Chandler fans, Illinois' Brandon Smith brought the field to
green. Smith (11) fought with series points leader Scott Bradley (1x)
for the opening laps eventually with Bradley taking the lead. The 1jr
of Hodge began to fall back with, Collin Ambrose surging forward along
Lynn Ambrose (1) and the 77 of Justin Lewis. Meanwhile further back more
great racing between the rookies Danny Fitzgerald (88x) and Cindy
Chambers (18c) swapping positions with Fitzgerald eventually taking the
advantage. At the halfway point the 1x of Bradley led with younger
brother Andy Bradley (86) in toe, and a very fast moving Collin Ambrose
(36) moving into 3rd. On Lap 12 Collin Ambrose would slip by the Bradley
Brothers capturing the lead. Andy Bradley over took 2nd and began to
chase Ambrose down who had already pushed his ERC to a 6 car advantage.
Bradley (86) caught up to the "Green Machine" of Ambrose (36) just
before lap traffic. Ambrose (36) would defend off numerous attacks
including a last ditch effort slider by Bradley (86) on the final lap to
steal the lead. The efforts came up short with Ambrose piloting around
the top to pass Bradley earning the checkers for the 3rd time this year.
The conclusion of the race brought the Chandler fans to their feet, the
last 5 laps were what Chandler's promoter Kevin Bayer said were "the
best racing of the season so far" with 4 lead changes in the last 3

Night number two took place at the very fast Western Kentucky Speedway.
MMSA rolled into town supporting the tin tops for one of the highest
purses of the season. Heat 1 was won by the 86 of Bradley followed close
by the 10c of Chris Baumeyer, the 36 of Ambrose, the 7 of Rice, 55 of
Digler, 18c of Chambers, 51 of Davis, and the 12 of Roeling. The early
favorite looked to be the 77 of Justin Lewis who put on a top side
clinic dominating heat 2 over the 1x of Bradley, 1 of Ambrose, 87 of
Stickles, 25 of Parker, 00 of Meadows and the 23 of Glen Davers.
Ambrose would lead the field to green, with the 36 of Collin Ambrose
taking the early lead. The "Green Machine" left the field battling
behind for most of the race. Eventually the 86 of Bradley would get by
Lynn Ambrose (1) moving into the 2nd position, but it was short lived as
the young gun Justin Lewis (77) found the top line and moved into 2nd
challenging Ambrose for the lead. Lewis (77) and Ambrose (36) battled
side by side with Lewis hanging on to the top. Unfortunately Lewis would
lose power off of turn 3 and coast to the infield. After the caution
many position battles broke out through out the field including the race
between the 10c of Baumeyer and the 1x of Scott Bradley. The race for
6th which was up for grabs between Stickles (87) and the 7 of Kevin
Rice. The last 4 laps were interesting with Bradley (86) finding the
line that Lewis had used early and passing Collin Ambrose (36) out of
turn two for the lead. Bradley would lead a very close following Ambrose
(36) until turn 4 where the 86 also lost power coasting to the top,
Ambrose would take advantage and the win at the line giving him his 4th
win of the season, and the 2nd in a row.
