Exciting Things Happening At Siskiyou Speedway
Yreka, CA...Siskiyou Motor Speedway has another exciting program on tap for Saturday night. In addition to the IMCA Sport Modifieds, the always exciting Mini Stocks and the newly-formed Jefferson State Jalopy Association, the track will have a special Outlaw Kart demo and kids Power Wheel races.
The IMCA Sport Modified division has been very unpredictable this season. In five races, there have been five different winners. Last week, it was Trevor Tiffee adding his name to the Winner's List after a good battle with championship rival Ryder Boswell. Boswell, who is a past Top 3 driver in Mini Stocks and a feature winner there, is on a quest to get his first win in this division. Tiffee had a clean sweep performance, which put him into the lead in the point standings.
While DJ Bottoms has quite a bit of ground to make up, he is a feature winner and a definite threat to win on any given weekend. Randy Wright and Gary Foster were both welcome sights in the pits last weekend. Wright, who finished third in the standings last season, would take a checkered flag in third in last Saturday's Main Event. Will there be a repeat winner this week or another new winner?
Looking over at the Mini Stock division, David Steele won for the fourth time last week. Steele should be at or near the top of the point listings when they are released. The only other driver to grab a Main Event victory so far this year is two-time reigning champion Marilyn Yawnick, but Yawnick settled for fourth last week after winning her heat race earlier in the evening.
Meanwhile, it was 2014 champion Mike Whitaker leading the pursuit of the flying Steele with a second place finish last week. It was his best finish of the season as he also has two thirds. Interesting enough, there have been five different second place finishers in five races, and Terry Kendrick is one of them. Kendrick finished third in the most recent race. It is likely that all four of these drivers are running rather closely at the top of the standings.
One driver serving notice to the competition that he is intent on being a contender for feature victories is rookie Darek Alford. Alford picked up his first ever heat race victory last week. Could a feature win be in the cards for him this week?
With Medford not running either of these classes on Saturday night, both divisions could see some visitation. Other locals to watch for in Mini Stock competition includes Dennis Jorgensen, Jason Frost, Mike Frost and Heather Ryan.
The Jefferson State Jalopies ran their first exhibition race last weekend with the recently completed #4 Jalopy getting the win. The team has four cars, but the driver scheduled to compete in the #1 car canceled at the last minute. JJ Smith and Karl Bernstein are the founders of this division and have built the first four cars. They'll take their second turn at the speedway on Saturday night.
Saturday night promises to be a fun night for the family. It will only get better at Siskiyou Speedway with the Calculated Comfort Outlaw Pro Stocks coming to town on June 16th, followed by the inaugural race of this year's Wild West IMCA Modified Speedweek Tour on Friday, June 22nd.

Tiffee Gaines Point Lead with Victory
Steele claims 4th Win At Siskiyou Speedway
Yreka, CA...June 2...Trevor Tiffee became the fifth different winner in as many races in IMCA Sport Modified competition Saturday night at Siskiyou Motor Speedway. All night long, Tiffee enjoyed a good battle with championship rival Ryder Boswell. He won the eight lap heat race and four lap Trophy Dash with Boswell in pursuit both times. Come Main Event time, Tiffee and Boswell enjoyed several side by side laps as both were intent on grabbing their first feature win of the season. However, Tiffee was just a bit quicker and brought it home to the checkered flag, followed by Boswell, Randy Wright, Gary Foster and DJ Bottoms. The win also put Tiffee into the point lead.
In the Mini Stock division, Medford point leader David Steele returned and captured his fourth 20 lap feature win in as many starts. Steele battled two time reigning champion Marilyn Yawnick in the preliminaries, holding her off to win the four lap Trophy Dash and finishing second to her in their eight lap heat race. In the Main Event, Steele set a rapid pace and steadily pulled away to a straightaway advantage over Mike Whitaker for the win. Terry Kendrick was a solid third, followed by Yawnick, Dennis Jorgensen, Mike Frost, Michael McLeod, Jason Frost and Heather Ryan. Rookie Darek Alford grabbed his first career eight lap heat race win ahead of Jorgensen.
The Jefferson State Jalopy Association put on an exhibition race with three of their four Jalopies at the track due to the fact that they couldn't find a driver for the fourth car. The race was a culmination of over a year's worth of work on these cars by Karl Bernstein and JJ Smith. The Jalopies will be back for another exhibition race next Saturday night.
Next Saturday night's program will feature IMCA Sport Modifieds, Mini Stocks, a Kart demo and Power Wheel races for the young kids. For further information, go to http://www.siskiyoumotorspeedway.com.
McKnight, Wheeler, Smith Win Yreka Outlaw Kart Races
Yreka, CA...June 1...The Yreka Outlaw Kart program continues to grow as several young up and coming Speedway stars took their turns on the one-eighth mile dirt oval. In the 250 Kart division, Logan McKnight used a lap 18 restart to take the lead and victory away from race long leader Cale Cunial. Cunial had won both of his heat races and settled for second in the Main Event, followed by Nick Perrin, Cole Cunial and Morgan Berry.
The track's youngest competitors in the Beginners Box Stock Sealed class continued to have a strong showing. Mike Wheeler Jr picked up his third straight Main Event victory ahead of Uriah Sanders, Shailene Horn, Carson Henson and Bhaltaire Edwards. Young Albert Gill made his debut in sixth ahead of Hunter Granger.
In the Beginners Box Stock Open class, 5 year old Chayce Smith remains undefeated in Yreka and has been winning pretty much everywhere he's gone. Smith picked up wins in his heat races and then won the Main Event ahead of Austin Bartholomew and Braxton Foster. Smith then made his very first start in the Box Stock division. However, reigning champion Taylor Fuller continues to roll as he won the Main Event ahead of Smith and Brandon Steinhoff.
Steve Rambo battled teammate Johnny Hoult to win the UAS Speedway Kart race. The next Friday night Outlaw Kart race will be on June 15th with all of the divisions scheduled.
