United Rebel Sprint Series 2015 Season Recap

The United Rebel Sprint Series capped off its Tenth Season Celebration with all four of its Points Championships going down to the wire in the final race of the season. Parity was the name of the game this season with the URSS as it had only three repeat winners. It is the bedrock that the series was founded on and provides the fans the best show on dirt year after year.

The 2015 Myers Engine URSS National Point Series featured nine different winners in the ten races which comprised Championship. The Championship went down to the wire as the top four spots were within 34 points of each other. Arvada, Colorado’s Jake Bubak prevailed to become the only driver in URSS history to take the National Championship three consecutive years. Bubak’s road to the crown wasn’t without its drama as a rare DQ at the Bullring Nationals on July 31 in Lacrosse Kansas left an opening for the other challengers to take advantage of. But Bubak used consistent finishes in the remaining nine races to capture the crown finishing no worse than seventh place in those races to three peat as the URSS Champion.

The 2015 Myers Engine URSS National Rookie of the Year went down to the wire as well as a pair of fourteen year old drivers went to the final race. Greeley Colorado’s Austin McClean and Liberal Kansas’s Tracey Hill took to the track to duke it out to which of the young guns would walk away with the title. The pair made all 10 National Point races in the 2015 season which made for a classic showdown. The points lead shifted back and forth during the season between the two and was the closest ROY race in URSS History. Austin McClean used  his qualifying for 6 out of the 10 National Feature races giving him the edge he needed to take the 2015 Myers Engine URSS National Rookie of the Year Championship by a mere 8 points.

The 2015 Kansas Region points’ battle was a tight one as well, with parity also being the main story as well. In the 19 races held in the Kansas Region 15 different drivers took the checkered flag during the 2015 season. Quinter Kansas’s Zach Blurton took the Championship with a string of top ten finishes including a three wins this season. Blurton made all but one of the 19 races in the Kansas Region and used solid finishes and a single DNF to win the Kansas Points Championship. Blurton adds his third title to his resume in his nine years of racing with the URSS Series, Blurton was the 2010 National Rookie of the Year as well as the 2010 Kansas Region Rookie of the Year.

The 2015 Kansas Region Rookie of the Year went to 14 year old Tracey Hill of Liberal Kansas. Hill made all 19 of the Kansas Region races this season and made the most of his rookie season by making the A Feature in 12 of those 19 starts. Tracey’s highest finish was a third place at the August 29th race held at RPM Speedway in Hays Kansas. Look for great things to come in the future from Tracey as he is one of the hot shoes to follow in the URSS Series.

The United Rebel Sprint Series would like to thank all of the Teams, Drivers, Sponsors, Track Promoters and especially all of the fans for making the Tenth Anniversary Season a huge success. Without you the Region would not have an affordable Sprint Car Series to enjoy. The season was as competitive as ever with 15 different drivers visiting Victory Lane in the 2015 Season.

Velesquez wins URSS battle at DCRP

as Bubak Claims 3rd Championship

 The curtains came down on the URSS 2015 season at Dodge City Raceway Park with Turpin, Oklahoma’s Taylor Velasquez topping the Sprint Car portion of the Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship for the second year in a row.

While Velasquez wired the field in the 30-lap URSS feature it was Colorado’s Jake Bubak claiming his 3rd URSS National Championship in a row with his 5th place finish.

For Velasquez, the triumph in the non-stop 30-lapper marked his first victory of the year aboard the Fronk Oil Co./Piper Trucking No. 21x.

“In nine years in the big Sprint Cars, this has been by far the worst,” a relieved Velasquez commented afterward. “It feels good to finish with a win.”

Starting third, Velasquez needed less than a lap to dispose of front row starters Darren Bowman and Kris Moore for the lead and set sail.

The 24-year-old held nearly a straightaway lead over Kris Moore and Zac Taylor by the time traffic came into play after eight laps, with Taylor and J.D. Johnson slipping around Moore for second and third, respectively, by the tenth lap.  Click here for more.....

Zac Taylor Claims

the URSS Bob Salem Memorial Sprint Nationals Crown

The final night of the Bob Salem Memorial Sprint Car Nationals at Oberlin Speedway in Oberlin, KS saw thirty one teams check in at the gate to earn points in the second to last “2015 Myers Engine URSS National Points” race of the 2015 season. When it was all said and done, 2013 URSS National Rookie of the Year Zac Taylor picked up the feature win from his fifth starting spot.

At the drop of the green flag 14 year old Tracey Hill led the field with Scott Cochran, Jeremy Huish, Zac Taylor and Keefe Hemel rounding out the top five at the end of lap one. Taylor and Huish would swap places several times in the next two laps battling for the third spot. Saturday’s preliminary feature winner, Brian Herbert made his to the fifth spot by lap five pushing Hemel back to sixth. CJ Johnson was making his way up to sixth by lap seven and set his sights on Herbert.

JD Johnson had made his way past Hemel on lap nine grab seventh place. Up front, Hill continued to pace the field when Cochran running in the second spot got caught behind a lapped car and lost the position on lap eleven to Huish. Huish began his drive up to try and challenge Hill for the top spot as the leader began to encounter more lapped traffic. Zac Taylor caught Cochran and dove under him in turn three to take away the third spot on lap fourteen. Meanwhile CJ Johnson had caught Herbert and the battle between the pair heated up. Further back in the pack, eleventh starter Jason Martin had been steadily picking off cars as he drove to the front. Martin made his way up to the eight spot by lap sixteen.

Brian Herbert Takes URSS Bob Salem Memorial Preliminary Win

The United Rebel Sprint Series kicked off night number one of the Bob Salem Memorial Sprint Car Nationals in grand style as 34 teams checked into the Decatur County Speedway. Fans were treated to some great racing action as Brian Herbert claimed the Myers Engine National Points victory by wiring the field from his outside pole starting position.

Coby Pearce led the field to the green flag with Herbert and Zac Taylor using the high line to bolt to the front of the pack. Pearce settled into the third spot with Jeremy Huish and Luke Cranston rounding out the top five at the end of lap one. Ninth starter JD Johnson started his charge to the front on lap three as he made his way up to challenge Cranston for the fourth spot. Johnson would continue to charge forward as he took the third spot away from Pearce who quickly fell back to fifth spot. Cranston settled into the fourth position but was soon challenged by 2013-2014 National Champion Jake Bubak by lap seven.

Out front Herbert still was in the lead with Taylor, JD Johnson, Cranston and Bubak in tow. Lap eight saw Jeremy Huish trying to get the low line to work battling Cranston for the fifth spot and hit an infield tire coming off of turn four to bring out the first caution of the night. Huish’s damage was minimal and he rejoined the tail of the field. On the restart Herbert once again pulled out to the lead with Taylor, JD Johnson, Bubak and Cranston in the top five. Behind them twelfth starting CJ Johnson had been making his way through the field and took away the fifth spot from Cranston on lap ten. Bubak had closed the gap between himself and JD Johnson and grabbed the position on lap eleven. Caution flew once again as Jordan Randles spun in turn three to once again bunch up the field.

Jake Bubak captures back-to-back wins at

Colorado Motorsports Park


Cranston slides way to URSS win

By Nick Schwien

It would have been easy for Luke Cranston to be satisfied where he was at.

But the sprint car driver has learned throughout his multiple years of racing that if you don’t try to move up, you’ll end up regretting the opportunity.

So Cranston took a chance, and it paid off in a big way Saturday night in the United Rebel Sprint Series feature at RPM Speedway in Hays.

Cranston, who started eighth, worked his way into third and remained there for several laps. But when the final caution happened with only eight laps remaining, the driver who grew up in Ness City decided the time to take a chance was then.

“I didn’t know for sure, but I knew I had to try it,” Cranston said. “I learned a long time ago doing this that if you don’t try it, then you always end up kicking yourself in the butt later on if you sit back there and get third and don’t even try something. I was going to give it a shot, and it worked for once. I’ve got to write that one down.”

On the restart, Cranston shot to the inside and by Tracey Hill, then continued that momentum into turn one as he threw a slide job on leader Nate Berry.

Cranston slid his 305 sprinter up the track, Berry tried to cross back under him, and the two battled down the backstretch for the lead.  Click here for more
