Winchester 400 Weekend to be Featured in National TV Broadcast on MAV TV

Vore’s Welding and Steel to be Weekend Presenting Sponsor with Additional TV Support from VanDoorn and Hamner


Winchester, IN – September 11, 2018 – Winchester Speedway announced today that the 47th Annual Winchester 400 Weekend will be featured in a National TV Broadcast on MAV TV. The event as a whole will air as part of Speed51’s Short Track America program. The focus of the production will be centered on the ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by JEGS Winchester 400. Other series racing that weekend will also receive recognition and exposure in the broadcast, as well as the winners from each of those events leading up to the running of the main event…the 47th Annual Winchester 400.

Racing takes place October 12-14 and features action from the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour powered by JEGS, the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman, the Lawrence Towing CRA Street Stocks, I-CAR All Star Modified Tour and the Vore’s Compact Touring Series. All of this racing action over Friday and Saturday, leads up to Sunday’s 47th running of the Winchester 400 for the ARCA/CRA Super Series powered by JEGS super late models…where one driver could walk away with a purse check of over $28,000.

A collection of sponsors are assisting with making the broadcast possible, led by long time short track racing supporter Steve Vore, through his business, Vore’s Welding and Steel. His company will serve as the presenting sponsor for the entire weekend. “I love Winchester Speedway and short track racers,” Vore noted. “With Vore’s Welding and Steel Inc. serving Western Ohio and Eastern Indiana, it was a perfect fit to sponsor this event. My hope was to include a deal with MAV TV to broadcast the 400 Weekend. By doing this, it could benefit not only short track racers, but also their sponsors now and in the future.”

Joining Vore’s Welding and Steel in sponsor support of the Winchester 400 are VanDoorn Racing Development and Hamner Racing Engines. Both are late model industry leaders in chassis construction and racing engines respectively. Johnny VanDoorn of VanDoorn Racing Development commented, “Butch and I are thrilled to be a part of bringing all the action from Winchester 400 weekend to a National Television audience. There is no other race like it in the world, and it is time for the rest of the world to see how special this event is for Super Late Models and all the other divisions as part of the weekend.”

For Jeff Hamner, of Hamner Racing Engines, reasons for supporting the Winchester 400 broadcast were very similar. “I really wanted to support the racers getting exposure in this effort,” Hamner commented. “Something like this is great for the event, the track and the community…but more importantly the racers. We are happy that we can be a part of helping bring about this type of exposure for everyone!”

The broadcast of the Winchester 400 Weekend presented by Vore’s Welding and Steel will air on Wednesday November 21st on MAV TV. For those who’s cable company might not carry MAV TV, the show will also air on Lucas Oil Racing TV through their website lucasoilracing.tv.

Champion Racing Associations (CRA) R. J. Scott noted, “What a wonderful opportunity for the racers and fans alike to come be a part of all the action at the track, and then get to see themselves about a month later on national TV. We appreciate all the groups coming together to make this happen. Its time for the rest of the world to see what happens among the cornfields outside Winchester, Indiana in the Fall. The camping, parties, and music are all part of the fun that lead up to one of the most exciting events in all of short track racing…the legendary Winchester 400!”

For those who are unable to be on site for the Winchester 400 Weekend presented by Vore’s Welding and Steel, Speed51 will once again be covering all the racing action in their live pay per view. They will also be covering the event with their popular on-line “Trackside Now.”

Winchester Speedway owner Charlie Shaw cemented everyone’s feeling with his thoughts. “This National TV exposure is something that we’ve wanted for a while now, and it comes at a great time. We are just finishing up our conversion from wood bleachers to aluminum bleachers, so fans at the track and at home will really see the improvement in the facility. This entire Winchester 400 Weekend is so special to so many people, and I really appreciate all these sponsors coming on board to make all of this happen!”

James Kirby III Rings the Winners Bell in the Bi-Centennial 200 at Winchester Speedway


Salem, IN (August 6, 2018) – Indianapolis, Indiana’s James Kirby III didn’t have the fastest car most of Sunday’s Bi-Centennial 200 Lawrence Towing CRA Street Stocks Powered by JEGS Five Crown Series event on the famous High Banks of Winchester Speedway, he patently saved his car until it counted, taking the lead on lap 176 and cruised to the win, his second ever series victory, the first since July of 2016.

“The car didn’t really come in until the last 50 laps,” Kirby remarked in victory lane. “It was a great feeling to race my dad for the win here. I love racing at Winchester Speedway, and now I’m a Five Crown 200 lap feature winner!”

Josh Poore grabbed the early lead from his pole starting position after Allstar Performance Fast Qualifier Danny Adams drew a nine for the events inverted start. The events first caution fell on lap 38 when Baer Field Motorsports Park event winner Jake Hinton had an engine let go, he spun in his own oil and hit the turn one wall hard. Hinton was okay, but he was done for the day.

On the next restart, after an extensive cleanup of the oil on the track, Jimmy Kirby, James’s father, grabbed the lead from Poore on lap 53. Poore’s day came to an end on lap 84 with the events second caution when he made hard contact with the turn four wall, destroying the right side of his car, Poore was okay, but his day was also done.

Jimmy Kirby kept the lead on the next restart until the checkers flew for the lap 100 halfway break. At the break teams were allowed to change up to two tires and relined up by how many tires they took. Of the lead lap cars, J.J Schafer didn’t take any and Calvin Parham only took one, putting them on the front row for the second half restart.

Parham got the lead bringing Jimmy Kirby with him into second on lap 101. James Kirby restarted seventh on the second half restart, after patiently making laps and staying out of trouble the first 100. The events third caution fell on lap 105 for debris on the track.

Parham kept the lead on the next restart while James Kirby started working patiently working his way to the front. Parham and Jimmy Kirby battled for several laps with Parham keeping the lead. James Kirby started heading to the front about lap 150. He first passed his father for second, and then set his sights on leader Parham. As the two hit lap traffic, James Kirby was able to use it to his advantage passing Parham for the lead on lap 176. Kirby quickly built a good lead over the fading Parham.

The events fourth and last caution fell on lap 193 when Parham got into the front stretch wall, setting up a five lap shoot out for the win between James Kirby, father Jimmy and third place Jacob McElfresh, the Five Crown point’s leader coming into Sunday’s race.

James Kirby quickly pulled away to keep the lead at the drop of the green flag, McElfresh was able to get around Jimmy Kirby for second, but didn’t have anything for James Kirby as he cruised to the win by just over a second. Kirby collected the $3,500 first place payoff and picked up the Racers Parts Wholesale Sweet Move of the Race Award for his pass of Parham to grab the lead. With the win James Kirby has now locked himself into the Chase for the Championship, Brett Hudson is the other driver locked in with his win earlier in the season.

McElfresh finished in second and picked up the AR Bodies Cool Move of the Race Award. Jimmy Kirby would finish in third place, those three were the only cars on the lead lap.

Iowa native Mike Todd finished in fourth place three laps down. Schafer finished in fifth place six laps down. Jason Atkinson was sixth, Brian Hopkins seventh, Parham eighth, Bobby Schisler ninth and Nathan Greene tenth.
