Bubak, Schudy make late moves for Night Two feature wins at Hockett-McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, MO. (Sept. 15, 2023) - Jake Bubak made the most of a late-race restart and grabbed the American Sprint Car feature win on Night Two of the 13th annual Jesse Hockett-Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Bubak earned $3,000 for the victory along with valuable points toward a prime starting position for Saturday night's $10,000-to-win ASCS finale.

In the co-feature with the wingless sprints, Kory Schudy of Battlefield, Mo., captured the POWRi WAR main event to take home $2,000 and also set himself up nicely for the finale.

Drivers in both divisions the first two nights earned points toward starting positions for Saturday night's program with bigger money on the line. The POWRi WAR winner on the final night will take home $4,077.

The Hockett-McMillin Memorial recognizes the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Mo., who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

Bubak of Arvada, Colo., grabbed the lead on lap 21 from Jason Martin two laps after a restart and held off Martin for the ASCS feature win. Before a lap19 caution, it appeared that Martin, the ASCS championship points leader, was on his way to victory lane.

"We obviosuly didn't have anything for Jason there before the rubber came in. Their car was so good in the slick," Bubak said. "But that's the fortunate part about running second. I could smell (the rubber) before the last yellow and I just cheated my entry on both ends and it stuck, so I went in there a little harder the next time and was able to clear him."

Martin, the ASCS season points leader, started up front and set a blistering pace from the start, roaring to a three-second lead just five laps into the 25-lap feature. Kaleb Johnson moved into second on lap three with Wayne Johnson running third and Kyle Bellm fourth.

Martin’s lead began to shrink as he caught lapped traffic on lap nine, with Kaleb Johnson cutting the gap to 1.4 seconds. The race’s first caution flew on lap 12 as a lapped car spun right in front of Kaleb Johnson and Wayne Johnson, collecting them in turn four.

Bubak restarted in second and Bellm third, but Martin quickly was able to open a 2.9-second lead by lap 15. Martin poured it on from there, cruising to a 4.4-second lead by lap 19 and it was clear that only a caution would prevent Martin from winning - and that's what happen when Andrew Deal spun in turn three.

Bubak got a good run on the restart and then sailed around the outside of Martin entering turn three on lap 21 for the race’s first lead change. Bubak rolled from there for his 10th overall victory of 2023, beating Martin by about six car lengths.

“I definitely love racing with Jason," Bubak said. "He's had an unbelievable year. For us to come here and beat him, it's a big accomplishment. We had a really good car tonight and hopefully we can be just as good tomorrow."

Martin said he felt like a sitting duck on the restart, with Bubak able to watch from close behind and take advantage of any mistake he made in the changing track conditions after the restart.

"Jake is really, really good. He's a super good dude and a really good race-car driver," Martin said. "I knew if I slid across the race track and it wasn't there yet, he was gonna either drive by me on the bottom or run the top and drive around me, too. I wish I could have done something different.

"We just didn't get it done, but we should be pretty high in the points and start up front for the $10,000-to-win and that's what we're here for."

Sean McClelland finished third with Jace Park fourth and Miles Paulus fifth.

Schudy earns WAR Sprint win: Kory Schudy of Battlefield, Mo., took the lead with three laps remaining after race-long leader Xavier Doney had misfortune and Schudy held on from there for the POWRi WAR victory.

Doney set the early pace from his starting position on the pole. Action ground to a half when Riley Kreisel flipped his car down the front stretch after tangling with Landon Simon to bring out the red flag. Kreisel climbed out of the wrecked machine under his own power.

As action resumed, Wesley Smith moved into second on lap six with Doney leading him by just over a second with Blake Vermillion falling two seconds back of Smith. As the extended green-flag run continued, Doney stretched his margin to 2.5 seconds over Smith by lap 13.

As the leaders caught lapped traffic, Smith’s chances went up in smoke as his car rolled to a stop going down the backstretch on lap 14 with an expired motor. That elevated Samuel Wagner to second with Schudy third and Vermillion fourth with 11 to go. But before the race could go back to green, Wagner needed to pull into the pits to replace a flat tire.

Schudy took advantage of the restart to go around Doney on the inside for the lead on lap 15, but Doney quickly regained the top spot the next time around. Those two broke away from the field by seven seconds and appeared ready to battle it out for the win.

But with three to go, Doney suddenly slowed coming off turn two with Schudy, who was applying pressure, inheriting the lead. The resulting caution led to a three-lap shootout following the restart, with Doney and ninth-place Paul White part of a multi-car melee in turn one, rolling their cars, to bring out another red flag.

"It's been run racing with him, it seems like the last month we've been going back and forth," Schudy said of Doney. "He was way better than us at the start and I was kind of hung up in the slime. After one of those reds, we kind of got going. Once we got up on the top, that thing was lights out."

Schudy had a flawless final restart and drove away to finish 1.6 seconds in front of Matt Sherrell for the win.

"We've won a prelim night before and kind of choked on Saturday, so we're not gonna celebrate too much tonight," Schudy said of looking ahead to the big finale.

Sherrell had an impressive run, going from 19th to second to become the clear hard-charger of the race.

"This feels good," Sherrell said. "The start of the night, it wasn't going our way, but we rallied and came back. We fought a little bit in the B and just kept tuning on it the whole night. That was a lot of fun."

Vermillion finished third with Caleb Stelzig fourth and Rob Caho Jr. fifth.

Schudy and Thursday night preliminary feature winner Isaac Chappel will start on the front row on Saturday night. Other lock-in drivers are Mario Clouser and Matt Sherrell (row 2), Rylan Gray and Blake Vermillion (row 3) and Wyatt Burks and Caleb Stelzig (row 4).
