Bell Rings Victorious in USCS vs. ASCS at Jackson PDF Print E-mail

JACKSON, MS – August 13, 2016 - Brian Bell of Memphis, TN won the first ever “Not So Civil War” between the United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters and the American Sprint Car Series / Southern Outlaw Sprints competitors on Saturday night at Jackson Motor Speedway. Bell ran the high side all night long, and held off a challenge from past USCS Champion Marshall Skinner of Marion, AR in heavy lapped traffic.  Bell and Skinner brought the full house at Jackson Motor Speedway to their feet after swapping the lead several times in heavy lapped traffic.

The race leader Bell got caught behind the lapped cars on the high side, which opened up the bottom groove for Skinner to take the lead.  Bell plowed his way through the lapped cars, battled side-by-side with Skinner for the point, and re-took the lead.  A late-race caution flag gave Bell a clear race track in front of him to post his second USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour win if the 2016 season. His other came at Greenville Speedway on May 29th

“It was real tricky to run up against the fence tonight, but that’s where I run and they gave it to me,” Bell said.  “I was trying to be patient in the lapped traffic, but when I saw Marshall’s nose get underneath me, I knew I had to make a hole to get through.  We had to get into our setup book from when we ran here earlier this year during Speedweeks, and that came in real handy for the feature.”

Skinner finished second, while th USCS 2008 Rookie of the Year, Anthony Nicholson of Millington, TN took the K&N Filters Podium Award third spot.  The current USCS points leader and defending USCS National Champion “The Queen of the Wings” Morgan Turpen of Cordova, TN was fourth and Seth Bergman of Snohomish, WA came home in the fifth spot.  The 11-time USCS National Champion Terry Gray of Barlett, TN finished sixth.

Cody Adams of Haughton, LA was seventh and Shane Morgan of Biloxi, MS finished eighth.  Kyle Amerson of Montgomery, AL took the ninth spot, and 2013 USCS National Champion and current USCS Mid-South regional series points leader, Derek Hagar of Marion, AR came back to round out the top ten after flipping on the opening lap of the race.

In preliminary action, Hagar won the six-lap Hoosier Speed Dash, and in eight-lap heat race action, Gray won the Engler Machine and Tool First Heat, Hagar won the Brown and Miller Racing Solutions Second Heat, Bergman won the Rock Third Heat, and Bell won the Schoenfeld Headers Fourth Heat.  Michael Miller of Ocean Springs, MS won the 12-lap DHR Suspensions B-Main.

The excitement level for the 30-lap Feature Race got started on the opening tour.  Bell took the lead at the drop of the green flag from his outside front row starting spot over K&N Filters Pole Award Winner Joey Schmidt of Ellisville, MS.  Hagar came from the sixth starting spot to go three-wide for third in turn three.  His front wheels came off the ground and he executed a quick flip.

That brought out the red flag and necessitated a complete restart.  Hagar’s car was pushed into the infield “hot pit” where his crew made repairs and returned him to the track to start on the tail of the field for the restart.  Bell took the lead again on the restart followed by Nicholson, Skinner, Schmidt, and Jordon Mallett of Greenbrier, AR.

The caution flag came out on lap five when Amerson stalled on the backstretch.  Bell led Nicholson, Skinner, Mallett and J.J. Simmons of Abott, TX down for the restart.  The top five held fast for the next six laps until the caution flag came out on lap 11 when Schmidt spun in turn four.

Business picked up when the green bulb was lit for the restart, as Skinner powered by Nicholson for second, and Miller hustled from the 15th starting spot to move up to the fifth spot.  Turpen moved up to make it a three-car battle for fourth with Mallett and Miller.  Turpen climbed up to the fourth spot on lap 14. 

The caution came out again on lap 15 when Tristan Lee of Biloxi, MS nosed into the third turn wall and collected Mallett, who was running in the fifth spot.  Both drivers were okay, but they were done for the evening.    Bell once again took off and put some distance between himself and Skinner on the restart, but by lap 22, the leader was beginning to encounter heavy lapped traffic.

Skinner was able to use that lapped traffic to his advantage and he closed on  ]Bell on lap 23.  Skinner went to the inside in turn one to take the lead, but Bell powered  ]by on the high  side to re-take the lead coming off turn two.  With more lapped cars in front of Bell on the high side entering turn three, Skinner for a second time dove under Bell, but the leader jammed his way through to keep the point.

With the battle for the lead waging on, the caution flag ended the war on lap 24 when Brandon Blendon of Biloxi, MS stalled in turn two.  Miller gave up the fourth spot and went to the pits for the night during the caution period. 

Bell led the field down for the restart followed by Skinner, Turpen, Nicholson, Bergman, Gray, Adams, Amerson, Morgan and Simmons.  In the six lap dash to the finish, Bell was never challenged.  Nicholson passed Turpen for third and Morgan passed Amerson for eighth on lap 26.  Hagar made it back up to the top ten on the final lap of the race.

The next two events on the 2016 United Sprint Car Series Outlaw Thunder Tour Presented by K&N Filters will be the 7th Annual Senoia Summer Nationals on August 19 and 20 at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, GA.  The USCS Outlaw Thunder Tour will present complete shows each night.
