Voyles disappointed after DNF at Oswego but bounce back at Salem with 21st place finish
American Racing team Owner/driver Daniel Voyles race came to an early end at Oswego after the 71 dump the Warr Arces native right in front of the field. “Just disappointed the way our race ended tonight” he said to the media after leaving the care center. “I was doing my best on trying to get out of the leaders way and unfortunately someone was being way too aggressive way too early in the race but that’s racing.” After an off week which he enjoy the race at Tulsa Salem never gave him problems with the exception of a little fender bender en route to a 21st place finish at Salem. “I can’t say I’m disappointed with the result but at least we finished the race which is a positive for my team” he said. “I’m looking forward to going to Rockford and try to get both mine and Annie’s car in the race since 60 spots are up for grab plus I wish the competitors who are battling for the championship good luck.”

Timothy's final race before Rockford:
After a up and down season, today would be his final chance to get a win before Rockford. He came oh so close to it, but finished second. Timothy, while happy he got another top 3, said that He was rob of a win and is adding fire to his soul. For those who remember, when Xavier bested Timothy in Xavier's Debut, he went on a warpath to prove all wrong and to remove the doubt of Polito's had at that time. After that Oswego finish, he told his family that this song will be his next season intro song. It was made by Sean and Dean Kiner for Extra History, not sponsored. and I will say, it shows how much his frustration and anger in his soul is in there. We'll see him at Rockford and next season with the Drums of War

Xavier's...race:
...I got nothing to say...If he thinks that's his best, no wonder Reality Network is getting cold feet with him. He just drove like banana peel skating on greasy black ice. I know, kinda forced, but NC made it work and it honestly looked like that. We don't have much to talk about, Xavier had no comment to anyone about his performance, but he did say "he needs to get ready for Rockford." Old habits die hard, I guess.

After struggling to qualify, Bouchard makes the final 2 races on his schedule before Rockford.
This is a slight boost of Confidence to the 16 Year Old from Ottawa, Canada.

Spoiler:
Stater wins, but sponsor rumors cast cloud

Todd Stater pulled off a magnificent victory at Salem defeating Bob Stephans in a duel for the ages, but Stater's victory might be to little to late. A prominent rumor has been spreading that both S.A.PLing Paper products and Road & Street auto Parts might be leaving at the end of the year. This would be a big blow to the team they have finally started to hit stride with Stater this year. Hopefully the team can finish out Rockford strong and start 2018 off right no matter who funds the car.

Alexa Lake @ Tulsa:
Alexa Lake has an unfortunate car failure; finished last
Alexa Lake, who has been on a tear recently in her limited starts, would show the cracks in her car that prevented her in past races from finishing well, if at all. That same issue would rear its ugly head in Tulsa. A mechanical failure.

During qualifying, where Alexa Lake would qualify seventh in the first Tulsa sprint, she would note on radio com "Guys, I think my car really does not like these bumps. It is sounding really rattley and it is making uncomfortable noises."

Her second lap would see her transmission blow, but her first lap was good enough to keep her in seventh. The team would then go search for another transmission and they would only find an old, 2014 Saar Eagle transmission that barely fit in the CM Nova of Lake's.

En race start, Lake immediately noted that her car had the same, similar rattle as in qualifying, but it wasn't nearly as shaky or loud. "First thing I notice is that rattle is back, but it is not nearly as loud as before. Hopefully this means I have a longer period to last before my car inevitably dies."

Perhaps a bit of speaking too soon as the race would go on and Alexa Lake would notice more and more rattling go on in her race-car, and then finally, her clutch went and that would send her out of the race. She would be the only retirement of the day.

"I guess I should quit jinxing myself. My car died yet again. Car doc' says that my car lost a clutch. The whole stint, I knew my car would give up as that rattle got louder and louder and my car began to lose its composure quickly. Brushed a wall and then it immediately blew up."

"....I guess one thing to note is that these Novas really do not like dirt tracks."


Alexa Lake @ Salem:
Alexa Lake finishes outside the top twenty
Car troubles would be the issue for [Alexa] Lake at Salem. Her car all race long wouldn't handle properly and she would end the race in 24th place. One of her worst finishes.

Despite finishing poorly, her commentary post-race was lighthearted and peppy like it usually tends to be. "It is a shame my car couldn't go places this race. She didn't have the pep in her step like she usually does, but that comes with racing, right? I wouldn't expect a veteran like Mr. Enola to never ever have a failure now an' again, no? No;
I merely expect him to do well....well, most of the time. -winks at crowd- Poor finish by my standards, of course, but I don't mind. I am more-so really pumped to tinker around at the Rockford 200! Here I come!"

Post-Race Press Release:
Crash Brings Early End to Fochesato's FARC Return
14 October 2017


After recently concluding his first campaign in international open-wheel racing, Vincenzo Fochesato returned to his roots on Saturday night, stepping into the Ike Durbin, Inc. car #86 for the Master Spark 100 at Salem Speedway in Salem, Indiana.

Formerly an up-and-comer in the FARC Truck Series, Fochesato's career took an unexpected turn when he was hired by FIAM Engineering to compete for its factory team in Dash Cup. Recent restructuring among the Italian automaker's motorsports operations resulted in another move to Formula B, where he scored three pole positions and one race victory in his rookie season.

The 25-year-old, however, hasn't forgotten where his career began. Following the late-season departure of Roy Warren from the IDI team, Fochesato took the opportunity to return to the FARC Lowe Dollar Series for the final two races of the season, bringing aboard CSM Gruppo. It was his first short track race since the very same event in 2014, in which he finished 4th in his sprint before being wrecked out of the feature.

Unfortunately for the Italian, his return to FARC would not go smoothly. After starting the race from the inside of row 13, he would be caught up in multiple accidents throughout the night. The battered #86 machine would finally drop out only twelve laps from the finish, officially scored in 27th.

"Yes, it's definitely a disappointment after all of the work that everyone in the garage did to get me acclimated to the car. Obviously Riley [Durbin] had trouble, too, so there's not really anything that they can show for their efforts this weekend. But it was a real pleasure to be back and racing here again. I really have missed the close-quarter racing, and a track like Salem will test your skills as much as any world-class grand prix circuit! It was a blast and I'm really thankful that Ike Durbin and CSM gave me the opportunity to race here again. I'm really looking forward to being a part of the Rockford 200 with this team in a couple of weeks!"

The Rockford 200 will the be final race of the year for Fochesato, who returns with FIAM for a second season of Formula B competition next March.
