Scott Moving Up At the King of the Dirt
Scott Moving Up At the King of the Dirt

The down and dirty… King of the Dirt at I-94 Speedway there were 43 Midwest Modifieds, we started 14th and finished 4th (yeah).  Jamestown Speedway finished 3rd (yippie) and at Thunder Mountain Speedway we won the feature (Yeehaw).  Whoot… Scott’s 6th feature win of the season!!.

The long version… We headed out to I-94 Speedway on Friday 8-20-10 for the “King of the Dirt” event.  Scott started 3rd in the 4th heat and finished 3rd (Shane Sabraski started outside pole and Ryan Mikkelson on pole and they were side by side for 8 laps with Shane taking the heat win).  The 3rd place heat finish put us starting the feature in the 14th spot .  The feature was fast and Scott worked his way up to 4th with 2 past National Champions (Sabraski & Saurer) and Dan Ebert (currently 3rd in National points) ahead him.  Shane Sabraski won followed by Travis Saurer and Dan Ebert.

On 8-21-10, we headed back home to the Jamestown Speedway.  Scott drew the biggest number in the bucket putting him in the 8th position of the last heat.  The heat was heavy, but Scott managed to make it up to 3rd, which put him starting in the 7th spot out of 25 in the feature.   The feature was dry with some tack and had several first lap cautions.   After they got going, Scott worked up to 3rd and began battling Ryan Mikkelson so 2nd for the remainder of the race.  Josh Eberhardt won, followed by Ryan and then Scott.

Next, we headed to the Thunder Mountain Speedway on Sunday.  The heat was super heavy and Scott was only able to make it up to 4th.  In the feature, Scott started 4th and got the lead on about lap 7 or 8 and held on the rest of the way.  There was a caution with about 5 laps to go, but Scott kept the lead and took the checker on the 20th lap making this his 6th feature win of the season.

Special thanks to one of our sponsors Dakota Engine Builders for providing reliable performance for both street and racing engines.

Feature Win at Thunder Mountain Speedway
Feature Win at Thunder Mountain Speedway

Since our last racing update alot has happened….  the good… 5 additional heat wins, 1 feature win, 6 more top 5’s and 2 more top 10’s.  The not so good…  we had 3 DNF’s (flat tire, tranny and some rearend troubles) and 2 DNS’s (tranny issue and the rearend broke).    We did have some great fun along the way and learned a few new things.   Towards the end of June we did take the car to the chassis builder, Millenium Nightmare, who fixed the rearend and did some fine tuning and since then have been running pretty strong again.  

Scott picked up his 5th feature win of the season on 7-11-10 at the Thunder Mountain Speedway with a clean sweep making it his 5th feature win at 5 different tracks.  (Jamestown Speedway, Sheyenne River Speedway, Buffalo River Speedway, Geographical Center Speedway and now Thunder  Mtn Speedway).    Check out the results page to see where we are headed next.

Points/Ave: 531.00/48.27 National Standing: N/A
Feature Winner Jamestown Speedway
Feature Winner Jamestown Speedway

We started out Friday going to the all new I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, MN for there opening race.  There were about 18 Wissota midwest modifeds on hand to race.  Scott had a sweet run in the heat and pull away for the pack racers and won his heat.  On the re-draw, we started 8th in the feature.   There we a feature cautions and then the racing got underway.  Scott moved up to the 4th position and with about 5 laps to go, had to pull off as the car was over heating.  Turns out the rough track had shifted the radiator and punched a hole in it.   Ultimately fun was had, fans were cheering and the car is looking real good.   #60 Dan Ebert won the feature.

After some extra help from Dakota Engine Builders and Rusty Kollman, we got the car back in good running condition and went to our home track, the Jamestown Speedway,  early to get set up to race both the A-mod (scott’s first time wheelin 600 hp) and the midwest modified.  Scott started pretty good in his A-mod heat and finish the race at the back of the pack.  This put is in the A-nid consi race where the top 4 would advance to the feature.  Scott started 14th and was moving up a few cars and doing pretty good.  About halfway through the race, Scott was on the high side on the front straight away and 2 cars below got out of shape,pushing Scott into the wall and the car behind him drove over his left rear tire.  No one was hurt, but that put an end to our A-mod racing for the night.  For the Midwest modified race, Scott drew pole in the 4th heat and got the lead quick and kept it all the way.  On the re-draw, Scott got the 8th starting spot for the feature.  There were a number of first lap cautions, but once we got going, Scott slowly started moving up and got to the 3rd position by lap 8 or so.  On lap 8, Scott drove up high in corner one and went of the track and then back on the track without causing a caution but he now in the back of the pack.   However, another spun car caused a caution before the lap was completed so, we got our 3rd spot back on the re-start.  After a few laps, Scott passed #15 Flyin Ryan Mikkelson for 2nd and then took the lead from #2Josh “The Jackrabbit” Eberhardt.  Scott was able to pull away from the pack and take the checkered flag first.  It was awesome winning at our home track on opening night. The track was dry slick and smooth.  The perfect track to race on.

On Sunday, May 16th, 2010 we went to Thunder Mountain Speedway.  Scott started and finished 3rd in his heat.   At TMS, they do a trophy dash plus a feature.  Scott didn’t get the best start and fell back several cars but slowly worked his way back up and made the pass for the lead with 2 laps to go and won the trophy dash.  In the feature, we got the 8th starting spot.  It was a dry slick track with a few bumps.  Scott worked his way up to 2nd in about 10 laps.  On lap 15 there was a caution.  On the re-started in corner 3 and 4 the leader, Scott and another car all got jammed up, spinning the leader and taking out Scott’s front right tie rod so he was unable to finish the race.  #58 Shawn “No Fear” Nostdahl won the feature.  Ultimately it was a great weekend, we were fortunate enough to get 2 heat wins, 1 trophy dash win and a feature win.

Racing Update for the Weekend of August 7th

2009 Scott Bintz Racing Midwest Modified Summary
Heat Wins: 11 | Feature Wins: 4 | Top 5’s: 20 | Top 10’s: 8

We planned to race the Tri-County Speedway in Wishek on Friday, then Jamestown on Saturday and a trip up to Bottineau on Sunday.  However, the weather changed our plans a bit.  On Friday afternoon right about the time Scott finished changing gears for Tri-County, we got the word it was cancelled due to rain.  We decided to head to Fargo to be fans for the night and watch the races there.  It was a fast track with alot of action.  On Saturday, Jamestown got rained out so we went to the Movie GI Joe with the kids.

On Sunday August 9th we head up to Bottineau to race.  14 Wissota Midwest Modifeds showed up for the season championship at the Thunder Mountain Speedway in Bottineau, ND. It was Scott first time this year at the track.  The track staff, fans and racers were very friendly and provided a great night of racing. Scott started outside pole of the first heat. He got the lead on the first lap and won by about a 1/2 track after a 10 lap heat. For the trophy dash, Scott started 6th and finished 3rd.  Brent Perleberg won the trophy dash. For the feature, Scott started on pole and got the early lead and held it for all 20 laps. The track was turning into dry slick as the race went on. There were a number of cautions and Scott was able to hang onto the lead his 4th feature win of the Season.  Brent Perleberg finished 2nd followed by Jeff Hooker.  Jim Morlock won the Season Championship for the track.

We stayed over night at Lake Metigoshe located in the Turtle Mountains about 5 miles from Bottineau.  What a beautiful place to camp.
