When the rules will not allow full roller rockers and you’re limited to a roller tip only style rocker, it presents many issues with damaging the rockers or causing excessive heat to where it blues and galls the rocker arms to the point of failure. When the rocker is in this state, the engine is losing power from friction by 7-15 HP, let alone getting ready to fail. We have found remedies to this and thought we would offer it to racers who build or work on their own engines.
Ryan Gustin might not have crossed the finish line first in Saturday night's USMTS main event at 81 Speedway, but he was awarded the $5,000 top prize as the apparent winner was disqualified for not making weight. With the victory, Gustin continued his late season success in a car fielded by USMTS National Champion Jason Hughes. RacinDirt Photo
Ryan Gustin dominated the USRA Fall Nationals feature Sunday night at Southern New Mexico Speedway, collecting the $11,000 payday. He was also victorious in Friday's preliminary event, putting him on the pole for Sunday's race. Gustin set a torrid pace until a caution with five laps to go bunched up the field. He was able to hold off fellow MRE pilot Stormy Scott to score the win. MRE grabbed three out of the top four as Ricky Thornton Jr. finished fourth in an IMCA Crate Killer engine.
Tommy Weder Jr. of Woodward, Okla., captured his biggest career win Saturday night in the annual running of the Fall Jamboree, a USMTS crown jewel event. Taking the lead on the 16th lap, Weder built up more than a straightaway lead before a caution would fly with 13 laps to go in the 42-lap race. He was able to hold off fellow MRE pilot Ricky Thornton Jr. to cash in on a $10,000 payday. “This is kind of like the World 100 for late models as far as modified guys are concerned," Weder said. "This is as top-notch as it gets and it’s going to be pretty cool to get my name on a pretty short list of people.”
