Stambaugh Rallies at Pittsburgh; New York All-Star Trip Next

After an impressive charge from 17th to seventh during I-79 Summer Shootout competition at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, “Mad Max” Stambaugh will now move ahead and prepare himself, as well as the familiar Ray Marshall Motorsports entry, for three consecutive nights of action in New York, joining the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions at Outlaw Speedway, Orange County Fair Speedway, and Lebanon Valley Speedway on July 28-30, respectively.

Stambaugh, the current Arctic Cat All Star Rookie of the Year point leader, will chase big money during his trip to The Empire State. The three-race campaign will award a total winner’s share exceeding $20,000; $5,000 at Outlaw Speedway, $10,000 at Orange County Fair Speedway, and $7,000 at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

“We were excited about our run at Pittsburgh. All we need to do now is get our qualifying program dialed in a little better,” Stambaugh said, pilot of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./No. 33M. “All three tracks in New York will be new to me. We are going to do our homework this week and see what we can do to be in the hunt for all three big paydays.”

In addition to his top-ten performance at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, Stambaugh and Ray Marshall Motorsports charged from 23rd to 14th at Eriez (PA) Speedway on Friday, July 21. The Elida, Ohio, native has earned five top-ten finishes during Arctic Cat All Star competition in 2017 and currently finds himself fourth in the Series driver standings.

“I can’t thank Ray Marshall and the entire team enough for their support this year,” Stambaugh said. “Most of this tour is brand new to me. I’m learning a lot. Fortunately, Ray is patient and understands how demanding this deal is.”

Western PA Triple on Deck for “Mad Max” Stambaugh

After entering Eldora Speedway’s famed Kings Royal for the first time in his career, highlighting the weekend with a B-main start on the final night of competition, “Mad Max” Stambaugh will now return to Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions commitments and join “America’s Series” for the second annual I-79 Summer Shootout on July 21-23; three events in three days at three different facilities.

“We had a great experience at the Kings Royal; an atmosphere unlike nothing else. I hope to be a part of that every year,” Stambaugh explained. “I think we were a lot better than where we finished. We were able to transfer through the ‘C’ and advance some positions in the ‘B’ to finish 14th. To come in there as a Kings Royal rookie and show some promise is really motivating. All we hope to do now is build some momentum on Friday and make this Western PA swing an even better experience.”

The 2017 I-79 Summer Shootout, all of which taking place in Western Pennsylvania, will feature a schedule identical to the inaugural version held in 2016. The Arctic Cat All Stars will visit Eriez Speedway in Erie on Friday evening; Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway near Imperial on Saturday; and Tri-City Raceway Park near Franklin on Sunday. All three will award a $5,000 top prize, as well as full points toward the Arctic Cat All Star championship.

Stambaugh, pilot of the familiar Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Fastenal of Kenton/DPI Ink Graphics/No. 33M, is currently fifth in the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions standings, also leading the Rookie of the Year chase on the strength of four top-ten finishes in 21 main event starts.

“Mad Max” Stambaugh Back in the Top 10

Top Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Rookie of the Year contender Max Stambaugh will continue his 2017 season with a visit to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio; his second of two visits during the Arctic Cat All Star schedule, this time chasing high honors during the Ninth Annual Lou Blaney Memorial on Saturday, July 8.

Stambaugh, pilot of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Fastenal of Kenton/No. 33M, will enter the weekend with a pair of recent top-ten finishes to his credit, one of which during Arctic Cat All Star competition at Wayne County (OH) Speedway on Saturday, July 1. “Mad Max” started tenth on the Wayne County Speedway starting grid and finished ninth, automatically qualifying for the $5,000-to-win program by winning his respective heat race.

“Mad Max” finished seventh during an Ohio Sprint Car Series start at Atomic Speedway on Sunday, July 2, eventually charging forward from row 11.

“We had a pretty good weekend. I’m lucky enough to have a team that works hard and never gives up,” Stambaugh explained. “Our July schedule is really busy, especially with our All Star commitments. We’ve proven that we have the potential to be up front. I have a great car owner who believes in me and I have a great group of guys who dedicate a lot of time at the track and in the garage. I think we have a great shot at being one of the teams contending for a win this weekend at Sharon Speedway.”

“Mad Max” Stambaugh will enter the upcoming weekend not only as the top Arctic Cat All Star Rookie of the Year contender, but also fifth in the overall championship standings. The Elida, Ohio, native has earned four top-ten finishes during Arctic Cat All Star competition in 2017, qualifying for a total of 20 main events.
