Erick Rudolph Makes an Unexpected Trip to Sharon Speedway and Collects the Win in the Lou Blaney Memorial!


By: Pam Baker



Marble, PA …. July 11, 2020…. Erick Rudolph had plans on attending Land of Legends Speedway on Saturday night, but Mother Nature changed his mind. With the Canandaigua, NY track cancelling early, this left several race teams with the opportunity to join the BRP Modified Tour at Sharon Speedway for the running of the 12th Annual Lou Blaney Memorial Race, including Rudolph. Thirty-nine cars were on hand for the event with nine cars making the haul from the state of New York.


By luck of the draw the front row for the start of the 35-lap feature found Eric Gabany and Brian Swartzlander leading the pack of 26 cars to the drop of the green flag. Before a lap could be completed the yellow flew when Kevin Hoffman, Dave Reges, Chris Rudolph and Phil Vigneri, III all came together in the second turn. No one was injured and everyone was able to restart.


Once the green flew again, Brian Swartzlander took command of the race with Gabany, Garrett Krummert and Michael Maresca in tow. The race went green to lap 12 when the caution flew for Colton Walters and Maresca. On the restart, Krummert who had worked his way into second was able to take the lead away from Swartzlander and by this time, eleventh place starter, Erick Rudolph was in third. Another caution on lap sixteen for Dave Murdick grouped the field together once again with Krummert in the lead and Rudolph in second.


The caution flew again on lap seventeen for Steve Slater and on lap nineteen Rudolph used the high side of the track to make the pass on Krummert and never looked back to pick up his third BRP Modified Tour race in four events and his first $2,000 Lou Blaney Memorial race.


Finishing behind Rudolph was Krummert, Swartzlander and Rex King, Jr. who started in the fourteenth position. Brad Rapp had a great run coming from the twelfth starting position to finish fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Jim Rasey, Ryan Susice, Greg Martin who had to run the B-Main to qualify for the feature and started twenty-first, Rex King, Sr. and Phil Vigneri, III who started twenty-third in the field.


Heat races were won by Rex King, Sr., Erick Rudolph, Chad Brachmann and Garrett Krummert. The B-Main was won by Greg Martin.


The BRP Modified Tour will be heading to Thunder Mountain Speedway for their next event on Friday, July 24th. Thunder Mountain Speedway is located just off of the Brookville, PA exit off I-80.

Eric Rudolph Captures Second Win of the Weekend in BRP Modified Tour Action at Tyler County

Posted by Pam Baker on July 15, 2020 at 5:15 AM

By: Pam Baker



Marble, PA…July 5, 2020…..Racing action with the BRP Modified Tour was hot for the 4th of July weekend and the BRP Modified Tour ventured to The Bullring of Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV on July 4th.


Twenty-six cars made the journey to the speedway, but the action was delayed a couple of times, one for a medical emergency in the grandstand area and second as the lights on the backstretch when out when squirrels chewed the wires off in the transformer.


Once the action started the starting lineup for the feature was the same as Friday night as Garrett Krummert drew the pole position with Rex King, Sr. outside the front row. Several caution periods created a problem trying to get the first lap in the record books, but once it did Garrett Krummert came out ahead of King, Sr. Krummert paced the field until fifth place starter, Eric Rudolph took the lead away on a restart and survived several more cautions. At the end of the 35-lap feature Rudolph was in the lead and captured the $3,000 prize money and his second win in two-days.


Rex King, Jr. was able to pass his father, Rex King, Sr. for second. King, Sr. finished a solid third with Jim Rasey fourth and Brad Rapp having a good showing coming from the seventeenth starting position to finish fifth.


The point standings are very close with Rex King, Sr. leading by one point over Garrett Krummert. Rex King, Jr. is sitting in third with Jim Rasey fourth and Dave Murdick fifth.


The next race on the BRP Modified Tour schedule will be held on Saturday, July 11th at Sharon Speedway for the running of the Lou Blaney Memorial race.


Feature Finish: Eric Rudolph, Rex King, Jr., Rex King, Sr., Jim Rasey, Brad Rapp, Chad Brachmann, Garrett Krummert, Dave Murdick, Phil Vigneri, III, Rick Regalski, Ricky Richner, Chris Rudolph, Paul Kot, Ralph McBride, Mark Frankhouser, Rodney Beltz, Randy Chronister, Steve Slater, Cory Riffe, Kevin Hoffman, Steve Barr, Tom Glenn, Eric Gabany, Shawn Kozar, Jeremiah Shingledecker, Dillon Barr – DNS.



Erick Rudolph Comes From 26th to Win at Lernerville Speedway

Posted by Pam Baker on July 15, 2020 at 5:05 AM


By: Pam Baker



Marble, PA……07/03/2020…….It was hotter than a firecracker on Friday night at Lernerville Speedway on the 4th of July weekend for the second race on the BRP Modified Tour schedule. There were 32 cars in the pit area for the event with three drivers, Phil Vigneri, III, Chad Brachmann and Eric Rudolph making the journey south from New York to run with the BRP Modified Tour.


Garrett Krummert and Rex King, Sr. led the 26 car field to the drop of the green flag with Krummert jumping out into the lead on the first lap ahead of King, Sr., Steve Feder and Brian Swartzlander. Lap two found the yellow fly for Ryan Riffe whose car slid off the third turn banking. The restart found Krummert once again in command of the lead but two laps later the yellow flew once again as a pile of cars in turn one slowed the action. Ricky Richner was sidelined after this accident, but everyone else was able to continue. On lap six, with King, Sr., having taken the lead away from Krummert, and tenth place starter Eric Rudolph in third the caution flew as Brian Swartzlander connected with Rudolph and spun Rudolph around in a circle bringing out the yellow flag.


Rudolph was able to get restarted and rejoined the field in the 25th position which was the last caution period of the race. King, Sr., and Krummert battled for the lead with King, Sr. gaining a couple car lengths on Krummert and by lap eleven started lapping cars. Meanwhile, working traffic methodically from the back of the pack Rudolph had made his way up to seventh by lap eighteen and by lap twenty-two was in fourth position. King, Sr. once again got into lapped traffic on lap twenty-eight and that is what played a part in the outcome of the race.


Lap thirty-two found heavy lapped traffic in front of King, Sr. which caught King, Sr. on the bottom of the track. Krummert and Rudolph entered turn four on the high side and Rudolph used that to his advantage to pass Krummert and King, Sr. who was tied up in traffic to take the lead away and went on to pick up the $2,000 win.


King, Sr. was able to hang on for second with Krummert riding home third. Fourth went to Rex King, Jr. who started 12th in the field. Fifth was captured by Brian Swartzlander.


Heats were won by Rex King, Sr., Garrett Krummert, Jeremiah Shingledecker and John Mollick. The B-Main was won by Tom Glenn.

Krummert captures 2nd BRP Modified Tour win at inaugural Bedford Speedway event

Posted by Pam Baker on June 28, 2020 at 4:10 AM


By: Pam Baker


Marble, PA….(June 15, 2020)…..The BRP Modified Tour made their first ever visit in the 24 years that they have been organized to the Bedford Speedway in Bedford, PA on Sunday, June 14, 2020. This was the first event the BRP Modified Tour has been able to complete with the COVID 19 virus cancelling many of the other events.

There were 22 cars in the pit area for the event and before the evening really got started, Jeremiah Shingledecker hit the fourth turn wall and destroyed his car after something on the car broke. Fortunately for Jeremiah, he brought a second car and was able to run the heat race and feature event. Shingledecker was uninjured during the incident.

The two #32 cars of Chris Rudolph and Jim Rasey led the 20 car field to the drop of the green flag with Rasey jumping into the lead, but a spin by Brad Rapp in turn one brought the field together for a complete restart. Once the race went green, Rasey led the pack around the smooth racing surface before the caution flew once again as Phil Vigneri, III hit the wall in the same spot that Shingledecker did during hot laps. His car had severe front end damage and Vigneri was done for the night.

Rasey led the group around for the second restart and paced the field ahead of Chris Rudolph, Garrett Krummert and Rick Regalski for the first seventeen laps, when lapped traffic started to play a part in the race. On lap 18 Krummert was able to make his way around Rasey before the caution flag waved for Rex King, Jr. who ended up against the wall in the same place that Shingledecker and Vigneri had encountered.

King, Jr. was pushed off the wal, restarted and pitted with a flat tire. The crew was able to get him back out before the green flew and he started at the rear of the field. On the restart, Jeff Miller contacted the wall in the exact same place and was up on two wheels and then was struck by Shawn Kozar and Rodney Beltz. No one was injured however, Beltz and Miller suffered too much damage to continue.

The restart found Krummert getting a really good lead on the rest of the field and at the end of the 35-laps he was almost a half a track ahead of second place, Rasey. Krummert took home the $3,000 pay check and his first win of the 2020 season. Finishing second was Jim Rasey followed by Rex King, Sr., Chad Brachmann and Rick Regalski. Rounding out the top ten were Jeremiah Shingledecker, Rex King, Jr., Dave Murdick, Paul Kot and Chris Rudolph.

Heat races were won by Rex King, Jr. and Garrett Krummert. As far as we know now, our next race will be on July 4th at Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV.


Finish: Garrett Krummert, Jim Rasey, Rex King, Sr., Chad Brachmann, Rick Regalski, Jeremiah Shingledecker, Rex King, Jr., Dave Murdick, Paul Kot, Chris Rudolph, James Henry, Mark Frankhouser, Steve Slater, Brad Rapp, Shawn Kozar, Jeff Miller, Rodney Beltz, Steve Barr, Phil Vigneri, III, Dillon Barr, DNS: Randy Chronister, Erick Gabany

Ransomville, N.Y. BRP Debut Race

Posted by Pam Baker on October 2, 2019 at 8:00 PM
By Lou Long Ransomville, NY September 14, 2019):  The BRP Modified Tour made its first visit to Ransomville Speedway for a showdown between the best of the Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio Big Block Modifieds and the 358 Modified stars of the Niagara region. Mix in a few Central New York racers and it made for a very entertaining and competitive program. The event was a big success, and promoter Jenn Martin proudly announced a return engagement for the 2020 season.  There were no less than four leaders through the 35 lapper, with Modified Tour drivers having the upper hand early in the contest. But, in the end, drivers more familiar with the Big R dominated the action. Taking the win was Gary Lindberg, from Ridgeway, ONT. Rex King, Sr. and Rex King, Jr. were the highest finishing Modified Tour regulars, at seventh and eighth. The close finish between the father and son was enough to ensure that the point title would go home to Bristolville, OH with the younger generation.  King Sr. was paired up with another Ohio veteran, Jim Rasey, for the start of the feature event. Chad Brachman and Dave Murdick were in the second row, with Alan Johnson and King Jr. in the third. Lindberg and Jesse Cotriss were in row four. Kevin Hoffman, Justin Haers, Greg Martin, and Ryan Susice occupied rows five and six.  At the drop of the green, King Sr. led Rasey, Murdick, Brachmann and Johnson. While Rasey was chasing King Sr., Murdick was struggling to keep Brachmann at bay. There was some contact between them in the third turn, and Murdick slid out of the groove, losing several positions. A quick caution for Steve Barr's slowdown on the front stretch enabled Rasey to start beside King Sr. again. This time, Rasey assumed command, with King Jr. moving into third ahead of Johnson and Brachmann. The leaders caught the rear of the field with eleven laps in the books. Rasey picked through them with ease, as did King Sr. Soon thereafter, AJ Slideways moved into second as King Sr. got loose in turn two. Brachmann was on the move again, too, as he was hounding King Jr. for third. Brachmann got into King's rear quarter when Cooter checked up for a lapper. King Jr. went around and was called for the yellow. That set up a restart with fifteen complete. Rasey led Johnson to the stripe, but Johnson powered by in turns one and two. Lindberg moved into the top three , while Brachmann and Haers were putting on quite a show for the fourth spot. Johnson led the next ten laps, but Lindberg found extra speed around the high side of the track. He moved into second and was closing in on Johnson as the leaders began working through traffic again. Lindberg grabbed the lead with a powerful move off the second corner to lead lap 26. Brachmann and Haers were now running third and fourth, with James Sweeting into fifth. Rasey, Martin, and King were fighting for the sixth spot.  A major skirmish coming off turn four brought a halt to the excitement. Cotriss spun, causing cars to scatter. Most made it through without contact, but Murdick got over the lip of the speedway and made heavy impact with the front stretch wall. His car was severely damaged, but Murdick was able to walk away from the accident scene. Lindberg scooted away from the field on the restart and led the final eight laps without incident. Haers moved into second when the green came on for the final time. Brachmann was the third racer to see the checkers. Johnson and Sweeting  topped Susice. King Sr. was seventh, with King Jr. coming up through the field to get eighth. Martin and Justin Wright took ninth and tenth.   The four heat winners were King Sr., Lindberg, Susice, and King Jr. Rick Regalski was the B Main victor. Max Smoker claimed the Modified Tour provisional.

After five laps complete, Rudolph had opened up a half-straightaway lead over King Jr and by lap 8, the leaders were getting into lap traffic. The gap remained the same between first and second, and the top five would be Rudolph, King Jr., Rex King, Kevin Hoffman and Phil Vigneri III.
