Rick Regalski worked his way up to fifth, but had challenges from Chris Haines and Kevin Hoffman. By lap 8, the leaders were working into heavy lap traffic, allowing Willard to use the lap cars to his advantage and take the lead from Rudolph. Phil Vigneri III, who started eighth, was working his way through the field, and by lap 12 was on the bumper of third place Randy Chrysler. The leaders would move deeper in the field and put on a great show for the fans, with side-by-side racing. The first caution would fly on lap 14 for Fink stopped near the pit entrance, Rodney Beltz also having mechanical issues would have to retire to the pits. It took several restarts to get the field back rolling, as Dillon Barr would end up against the front stretch wall on the initial restart. The next restart would see the leaders tangling a bit and cars stacking up behind them. Mark Frankhouser, Tom Mattocks and Rex King Sr. would end up stopped in turn two. On the restart, Willard would get the jump, but he was battling a left front flat and would give the lead back over to Rudolph. Vigneri III continued to move up through the pack and worked hard on Chrylser, making the pass to move into second on lap 18. The caution would fly once again as Steve Barr stopped in turn four. The top five would include Rudolph, Vigneri III, Chrysler, Willard and Rex King Jr. Regalski would get around King Jr. the fifth spot, who was now getting pressure from John Mollick. Rudolph remain out front and would once again get into lapped traffic. The race would stay under green through lap 31 for Regalski spinning in four. Regalski, King Jr. and Mollick had a great battle going on. With two laps remaining, the caution would fly for debris in turn two. Willard, who had been running in the top five all race, dropped a spring and would be sent to the pits. Rudolph would stay out front for the final two laps and would take home victory number eight.

Mercer, PA August 12, 2017. Erick Rudolph takes advantage of his front row start, thanks to the four-car invert in the feature, and grab his first BRP Modified Tour win at Mercer Raceway Park. Rex King Jr. takes home a second-place finish, while Jeremiah Shingledecker finishes third in the Big Block vs Small Block battle. Thirty Modifieds filled the pits at Mercer Raceway Park on a gorgeous Saturday night. Thirteen small blocks would be in house to battle the big blocks. Lonny Riggs the only small block to win this challenge in years past. The top two in points, and the only two feature winners this season, would start on the front row at Mercer Raceway Park for the 35-lap feature. This is the BRP Modified Tours (Modified Tour Inc.) second visit to Mercer this season, with Rex King Jr. taking the first win back in March during the Chiller Thriller. Rex King Jr. on the pole had Erick Rudolph on his outside at the start. When the green flag dropped, King Jr. would get a good jump and the early lead going through turns one and two. Before the leaders could cross the start-finish line, Jimmy Holden would spin on the backstretch, leading to a complete restart. On the second attempt at the start, Rudolph would grab the lead this time. Chris Haines, Jeremiah Shingledecker and Lonny Riggs would be battling hard behind the leaders. By lap five, the leaders were approaching lap traffic. On lap seven, Rex King Sr., a six-time Tour Champion, would slow on the backstretch and stop just before the pits, bringing out the caution. Just after the restart, several cars were collected in an accident in turn four. Kyle Fink, Rodney Beltz, Jason Sines, Shannon Whaley and Shawn Kozar were all involved, and all could rejoin the tail of field. The top five would be Rudolph, King Jr., Shingledecker, Riggs and Chrysler when the caution flag flew. Shingledecker and Riggs would battle for third with Riggs grabbing that position and moving up to challenge King Jr. before the caution flew for Brad Rapp stopping along the front stretch wall. On the restart, Riggs, running a small block, would put pressure on King Jr. again for second. By lap 24, the front five would spread out a little before Shingledecker and Riggs would battle side-by-side again for third, with Garrett Krummert moving up to fifth and getting in on the battle. Fink, who was involved in the lap 8 incident, would be able to make it back into the top ten with around 10 to go. The rest of the laps would stay under green, and Erick Rudolph would pick up his sixth Modified Tour win in a row, and his first at Mercer Raceway Park. Rex King Jr. would come home second. Jeremiah Shingledecker, Garrett Krummert and Lonny Riggs would round out the top five.

RUDOLPH GRABS SECOND BRP MODIFIED TOUR WIN OF THE YEAR

Bradford, PA June 12, 2017– The Big Block Modifieds of the Modified Tour Inc. made their

return to the Old Bradford Speedway for a 40-lap, $2500 to win event. 21 cars started the

feature, and at the checkers it was Erick Rudolph crossing first. The Ransomville, NY native

picking up his second tour win of the season.

The straight-up start placed heat winners in the first two rows, with Mat Williamson and Kyle

Fink on the front row. Right after the drop of the green flag, trouble for a couple of drivers on

the backstretch ended the night for Travis Shingledecker. Tom Glenn and Rod Laskey, who were

also involved in the first lap incident, were able to rejoin the field on the complete restart.

After the complete restart, trouble hit once again, this time in turn four as Raymond Bliss and

Steve Barr tangle. Fink was able to get around Williamson for the lead and cross the start-finish

line before the next caution flew. A scary moment as several cars get together on the

backstretch, with the 17M of Skip Moore ending up on his roof. Thankfully, he would walk

away, okay. When the green flag flew again, the top five included Fink, Williamson, Erick

Rudolph, Rex King Jr, and Garrett Krummert.

Fink would maintain the lead for several more laps, but he was starting to get pressure from the

25R of Rudolph who was able to get by Williamson for second. Fink would battle hard trying to

hold off Rudolph, but when lap flew on lap 17 for Shawn Kozar stopped in 4, it was the 25R that

had taken over the top spot. Behind Rudolph, Fink, Williamson, King Jr., and Krummert rounded

out the top five. Dave Murdick moved into sixth with Rick Regalski, Kevin Hoffman, Mark

Frankhouser and JR McGinley battling behind him.

Tough break for Regalski, as he would spin in two on lap 27. He had been running just outside

the top five at the time. McGinley gained a few spots moving up to seventh. Rudolph, Fink and

Williamson remain the top three.

The race ended with a two-lap shoot out after the caution came out for Jimmy Holden stopped

in turn three on lap 38. Rudolph would get another good jump on the restart, and would hold

on for his second Tour win of the season. Fink, Williamson, King Jr., and Krummert finished

second through fifth.

Middlebourne, WV April 16, 2017– The Modified Tour returned to the “Bullring” at Tyler County Speedway for a 35 lap, $3000 to win event. When the checkered flags flew, it was Erick Rudolph picking up his 100th career win. Garrett Krummert finished second and Rex King Sr. came home third.

Kyle Fink and Garrett Krummert led the field to the green on a beautiful Saturday night at Tyler County Speedway. Coming across to complete lap one, it was Erick Rudolph who quickly jumped out to the lead from his second row starting position. Behind the leader was a great battle going on for second place. Randy Chrsyler held the spot, but was getting pressure from Krummert and Rex King Sr.

The first caution flag flew on lap 14 when Travis Shingledecker slowed in turn two. The top five were Rudolph leading, King Sr up to second, Krummert third, Chrysler fourth, and Fink in fifth. The lead cars were getting into heavy lapped traffic before the caution flew.

On the restart, Rudolph chose the outside and made that line work, holding onto the lead. By lap 16, Rick Regalski had moved into the top 5 and Rex King Jr. up to sixth

The caution flag last flew when Steve Barr stopped in turn two. On the restart, King Jr got around Regalski for fifth, and Krummert got a good run and moved back up to second. Rudolph would lead the rest of the way, but had to hold off a hard charging Krummert. At the checkers, it was Rudolph with his 100th career win, Krummert finishing second, King Sr third, Chrysler fourth, and King Jr. rounding out the top five.

REX KING JR. MAKES IT TWO IN A ROW AT CHILLER THRILLER

 

Mercer, PA, March 26, 2017– Rex King Jr picks up the win at Modified Tour season opener.

It was a warm March night for the kickoff of the 2017 Modified Tour, Inc. season. A 27 car field took the green for the 35 lap feature led by Tyler Williard and Brad Rapp on the front row. Rapp took the lead going through the first turn and as the leaders crossed the start/finish line to complete lap one, cars were coming together behind them. Lonny Riggs got turned around at the exit of four and collected several cars. Mike Bowman and Tom Glenn were taking off on the hook, Jeremiah Shingledecker, Mat Williamson, Rex King Sr. and Erick Rudolph also sustained damage in the wreck.

On the restart, Rapp stayed in the lead, but there was a change for second as Rex King Jr. moved into that spot. Two laps later, King Jr. would pass Rapp for the lead. By lap 5, the front three cars of King Jr., Rapp, and Chrysler started to open up a gap on the fourth place car of Willard.

Lap 20, King retained the lead after two more restarts when the J. Shingledecker and Charles Willis III had issues on the backstretch. Nearly a straightaway behind leader, there was a battle going on for second between Randy Chrysler and Rapp. Rudolph, the 2016 points champion, had worked his way back into the top ten after having to make a trip to the pits on lap one.

After one more caution for debris, Rex King Jr. grabbed the checkered flag to go onto his second straight Chiller Thriller win, Chrysler finished second and Rapp came home in third. Rudolph, McGinley, Garrett Krummert, King Sr., Rick Regalski, Riggs, and Willard rounded out the top ten.

ERICK RUDOPLH REPEATS IN "RUSS KING MEMORIAL" TAKING $3000 BIG-BLOCK MOD TOUR SATURDAY AT SHARON

Posted by Pam Baker on September 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)

By Mike Leone

Hartford, OH, September 17, 2016 Sharon Speedway brought down the curtain on the 87th anniversary racing season as the two-day "Apple Festival Nationals" was cut short by rain Saturday night. Despite a near 100% chance of thunderstorms in the forecast all day and night, the track was able to withstand some light showers throughout the day and dodge the heavy storms to get started on time. Two feature events were completed with Erick Rudolph ("Russ King Memorial" Big-Block Modified Tour, Inc.) and Will Thomas III (RUSH Late Model Tour) celebrating in the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply victory lane before rain washed out the remainder of the program. The remaining feature events will be completed throughout the spring of 2017 with the dates to be announced in the offseason.

 

Eric Rudolph won the 2015 "Russ King Memorial" part of the "Apple Festival Nationals", which was actually made up back on April 16. On Saturday night, the Modified Tour, Inc. point leader started back in 10th, but that only delayed the inevitable as he made the winning pass on lap 21 and went on to win the 32-lap rain-shortened event, worth $3,000.

 

After drawing the pole position, J.R. McGinley jumped to the early lead over Skip Moore. Seventh starting Rex King, a three-time winner of his father's memorial event, moved to third on lap 10 getting by Dave Murdick then took over second from Moore on lap 14 as Rich Richner and Rudolph followed in third and fourth.

 

Rudolph then snatched runner-up away from King on lap 20 before making the winning move one lap later following a restart as King followed past McGinley. Rudolph would then drive away from the field until two-time track champion, Rex King, Jr., brought out the event's final caution with 32 laps scored as his bid once again ended to win his first memorial event for his grandfather. At this point the intensity of the rain picked up and the cars were sent off the track. Too much rain would fall ending the event and the night. The race was considered complete as it was past the halfway point of the scheduled 35-lap distance.

 

Rudolph became the eighth driver to score multiple "Russ King Memorial" wins in the 31st running of the event driving the Randy Chrysler-owned #25R. King was second. After coming up a close second to Kyle Fink on Friday night in the Big-Block Modified non-winners event, McGinley, who has little Sharon experience, completed an excellent weekend in third after leading the first 20 circuits.

 

Richner was fourth as Jim Rasey, Rob Kristyak, Moore, Brad Rapp, Eric Gabany, and Kevin Bolland completed the top 10. Rapp received an extra $50 as the hard charger award winner compliments of Double Motorsports after starting 20th. King, Jr. set fast time in qualifying with a lap of 16.506 just 0.007 over his father. Heat winners over the 24-car field were King, Jr., King, and Jimmy Weller III.
