Jeff Dyer In CAS Sprint Car Race At Central Arizona Speedway

Short Night For Jeff Dyer In CAS Sprint Car Race At Central Arizona Speedway

By Scott Daloisio

(September 18, 2020, Yucca Valley, CA) What looked like it was going to be a good night for Jeff Dyer in the CAS Sprint Car Series at Central Arizona Speedway last Saturday, ended fast after he broke in hot laps and was done for the night.  The disappointed driver and team quickly loaded up and headed home to prepare Dyer’s son’s car for racing this Saturday, September 19th, at Wheel2Wheel Raceway in Victorville, California.

The previous week, Dyer shook down the Christina Dyer owned ITI/Van Dyne 360 in a test session at Perris Auto Speedway. The car performed flawlessly.   Thus, the team was enthusiastic about its chances in the “Copper State.”  However, those hopes quickly dissipated when something broke in the driveline after five circuits around the Casa Grande dirt oval in hot laps.

“It only figures that we could cut nearly 100-laps close to home at Perris and everything was perfect,” Dyer shrugged.  “Then we drive hours across the desert, and something breaks right off the bat.  It was something in the driveline and it damaged the bell housing.”

Dyer’s next appearance behind the wheel was slated to be with the California Lightning Sprint Car Series at the Bakersfield Speedway on September 26th, but that race was canceled.  Now it looks like the Yucca Valley veteran may be out of the cockpit until November. 

This Saturday, Dyer will be serving as crew chief for his teenage son Seth at Wheel2Wheel Raceway.  A racing rookie in 2020, the teenager has fared very well in his first campaign.  Despite missing some races, he is 10th in points in the Intermediate Speedway Sprint class and is fourth in the Rookie of the Year standings.  Three weeks ago, he finished seventh in a 13-car field in the main event.    

Off the track, Dyer and his family were featured in Tuesday’s edition of the Hi-Desert Star.  You can read the piece at the following link  https://bit.ly/3iKcYiz

Dyer Motorsports would like to thank the following sponsors for making the 2020 season possible.   Glenn Sels Engineering, John Springstead Racing, Hair Cuts By Susan, Carlos, T Shirts By Timeless, Circle Track Performance, Amsoil, and Safe House.  If you would like to be a part of the team in 2020 and 2021, call or send an e-mail to the contact information at the top of this page.
