Short-Track Roundup: Jason Meyers returning; Conley, Kenseth come up winners


Two-time World of Outlaws
Sprint Car Series champion
Jason Meyers plans to
return to competition,
competing in both the
Knoxville 360 Nationals Aug.
2-4 and the 52nd annual
Goodyear Knoxville
Nationals Aug. 8-11.
Meyers will drive the No. 21
owned by Tom Tarlton.
Meyers won the WoO
championship in 2010 and
2011, but stepped away
from the sport in March to
spend more time with his
family and pursue business
interests.
“We put a deal together
where they purchased a
good part of our equipment
with the intent that they
would take that and use it
for their racing operation,
but as part of that they
wanted to go back to
Knoxville with me driving
it,” Meyers said. “We have
been working on this really
since we walked away and
now that time is here.”
Outlaw winners
Craig Dollansky was the
winner of the Don Martin
Memorial Silver Cup World of
Outlaws Sprint Car Series
race at Pennsylvania’s
Lernerville Speedway.
Dollansky won the opening
30-lap feature and received
the $5,000 bonus after
finishing 16th in the 30-lap
nightcap and having the
best average finish for the
two features.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
champion Tony Stewart
dominated the second 30-
lap feature for his first
World of Outlaws triumph of
the season. Cody Darrah
earned his first World of
Outlaws victory of the
season, taking the Summer
Nationals at Pennsylvania’s
Williams Grove Speedway.
Sprint Week
Heading into Sunday night’s
finale of the 25th Indiana
Sprint Week sanctioned by
the USAC National Sprint Car
Series, Levi Jones led Jon
Stanbrough and Bryan
Clauson, who were tied for
second, by a mere 12
points.
Stanbrough tightened the
race up with a victory
Saturday night at Tri-State
Speedway, leaving Sunday’s
finale at Lincoln Park
Speedway, where the series
was rained out on Thursday
night, to decide the
championship.
Other winners during the
week of action were Indiana
drivers Dave Darland
(Kokomo), Daron Clayton
(Terre Haute) and Kevin
Thomas Jr. (Bloomington).
Birkhofer perfect
Brian Birkhofer completed a
perfect weekend at I-80
Speedway, earning $26,000
for winning the second
annual Silver Dollar
Nationals Saturday night at
the Greenwood, Neb., dirt
track. The race was
sanctioned by the Lucas Oil
Late Model Dirt Series and
the Lucas Oil MLRA late
model series.
Birkhofer survived a scary
when he made contact with
the lapped car of Jonathan
Davenport late in the race.
“Yes I got in there a little
hot and I got into him,”
Birkhofer explained. “I was
worried that I might cut
down a tire or something,
but apparently not, that was
my fault, but I was trying to
protect the lead, I didn’t
know how much I was out in
front, it could have cost
us.”
Terry Phillips won the
USMTS modified feature
during the Silver Dollar
Nationals.

NASCAR champion Matt
