Bryan Hulbert – SPENCER, Iowa (September 12, 2023) Picking up $5,000 at the Battle of the Blue Ribbon presented by DeBerg Concrete Tuesday night, Terry McCarl collected his 15th career victory with the American Sprint Car Series presented by at Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa.

The 15th driver to top the American Sprint Car Series presented by in 2023, McCarl’s last win came 126 events ago on October 31, 2019, at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track.

“I had a great car right off the bat. I love the feel of these dished wings. I always give my boys crap. They think I’m old and stupid for running them, but it’s just a feel I like in the car, and the track wasn’t laying rubber, but it was cleaning off,” said McCarl. “It feels great to win, and it’s hard to win anywhere, but on the national level with these ASCS guys, they’re a great group of guys, you know, and here; I’ve never really run that well here in Spencer. In fact, this is my first win here.”

Getting the lead on the opening lap from the right of the front row, the Country Builder Construction/Justice Brothers No. 24 led from start to finish at the three-eighths-mile oval. Finding traffic late in the non-stop feature event did little to slow the wily veteran, who pulled away to a 3.719-second advantage at the drop of the checkered flag.

Chased by Matt Covington, the No. 95 moved to second through the opening turns of the 25-lap affair and stayed there for the duration. Steadily moving forward, Indiana’s Zane DeVault worked every line he could find to move from 11th to third at the white flag. Getting the spot away from Blake Hahn, the No. 52 settled for fourth, with Brandon Anderson fifth.

Moving throughout the top ten, Ayrton Gennetten finally settled into sixth. Chris Martin crossed seventh, with Howard Moore eighth. Christopher Thram and Jason Martin made up the top ten.

The finishing order was based on a split finish, as the red came out after the top two had crossed the finish line. Displayed for Lance Moss, who dove out of his car on fire, he was able to walk on his own to the Ambulance for further evaluation. Special thanks to the entire safety crew for their response, as well as Blake Hahn and Jordon Mallett, who jumped out of their cars to assist a fellow driver.

Tuesday’s field had 31 drivers drawing in. Blake Hahn was the overall quick qualifier at 14.283-seconds. AR Dyno Specialty Heat Race wins went to Matt Covington, Skylar Prochaska, Zane DeVault, and Jack Dover. The BMRS B-Feature went to Sam Henderson. One provisional was used by Landon Britt.

Up next is the $10,000 to win Hockett/McMillin Memorial on September 14, 15, and 16 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.
