Offbeat News: A Dead Man Walking, Stupid Criminals & More

“Family Business”

For many high school seniors, getting into Harvard would be a dream, but one teen is delaying her higher education to follow a different passion: racecar driving. Aurora Straus didn’t intend on becoming a racecar driver when she was younger, but after her dad – who happens to be CEO of Monticello Motor Club in the Catskills – signed her up for driving lessons at the track at 13, she was bitten by the bug.

Straus has graduated from her high school in Westchester, New York and has been accepted into Harvard. However, she ended up deferring for the year and continued racing instead. So far she’s competed in 35 races and will be one of three women among 150 drivers competing in the Pirelli World Challenge series in Austin, Texas.


“Best Worst World Leader”

When it comes to great world leaders, people think Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, maybe even Barack Obama, but how about Adolf Hitler? The book publisher, Pegasus, is being slammed for including the Nazi Germany leader in its book Great Leaders.

The book includes those previously mentioned including Hitler as “powerful world leaders who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of their countries and the people living in them.” As you might imagine, Abraham Cooper of the Wiesenthal Center doesn’t quite think Hitler lived up to those standards (just like any other right thinking person!).

Cooper says: “Placing Hitler alongside truly great political and humanitarian leaders is an abomination that is made worse as it targets young people with little or no knowledge of world history and ethics.” The Wiesenthal Center has demanded that Pegasus remove the book from shelves.


“Dead Man Walking”

A Romanian who worked as a cook in Turkey for more than 20 years has returned to his home country to find out his wife had him declared dead. Since learning of this in January, Constantin Reliu has been actively trying to prove to government officials that he is who he says he is, and he’s not dead. After going through some serious questioning, it was determined that Reliu was in fact alive and well, but he’s still facing issues overturning his death certificate. The court ruled that his request to do so was filed too late. And get this – Reliu can no longer find his wife, who’s believed to be in Italy. He says he originally left her in the 90’s after learning of her infidelity. Adding to the fun? He’s been banned from Turkey for life after being detained and deported back to Romania over expired papers, but plans to write to Turkish president to repeal the decision.


“The Goodest Boy”

Ever notice how excited your dog may get when you ask, “who’s a good boy?” Well there may be a reason for that. A new study out of the University of York has concluded that dogs respond better to baby talk. Researchers found that like human babies that respond best to parents who speak in a high pitched happy voice, dogs like the sound of it, too. Adult dogs used in the study reportedly reacted better to humans who spoke like babies rather than using their regular tone. The study suggests that talking high pitched can strengthen the bond between human and dog.


STUPID CRIMINALS:

  • The co-owner of Birds-N-Paradise in California says that six very expensive birds were stolen from the shop. Erik Schreiner says that thieves took three Patagonian conures worth $950 each, a caique parrot worth $1,400, a rose-breasted cockatoo worth $2,200 and a yellow nape Amazon parrot worth $2,500. He thinks the crimes are related to two other bird thefts that have taken place in the area, but the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department isn’t certain they’re linked.
  • A Florida woman was arrested after driving intoxicated with a child in a vehicle with four flat tires. The woman, named So Pak, was pulled over after going five to 10 miles per hour in a 40 miles per hour zone with the four flat tires. Pak insisted there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. Police say they noticed a child in the back seat and smelled a strong scent of alcohol coming from the car. She failed a sobriety test and was charged with driving under the influence and child neglect. Pak was booked into St. Lucie Jail and released on bond.
  • An Indiana man was arrested after taking a cab to and from a bank robbery. Derrick Faria was arrested nearly an hour after he robbed a bank by passing a note to the teller demanding money. It’s being reported that he didn’t show a weapon and that he used the money he stole to pay his cabby. He’s being held at Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of robbery and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Stormy Scott soars to USMTS win at Whynot

Stormy Scott turned his season around in a big way with a thrilling victory in the fifth round of the 9th Annual Summit USMTS Winter Speedweeks presented by MSD Performance Saturday night at the Whynot Motorsports Park.

After failing to even make it to the finish line in all four of the previous main events in this 2018 campaign, the 2-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., put it all together at the ‘House of Hook’ after a spirited tussle with Cade Dillard in the caution-free 40-lapper.

Jason Krohn stepped up to the plate from his front row start and led most of the first half of the race with Dillard breathing down his neck and Scott lingering in third. With 15 laps down, Scott went by Dillard and then powered underneath Krohn for the lead as they came to the flagstand to complete lap 18.

Forced to navigate lapped traffic the rest of the way, Scott and Dillard sped away from the field with Scott showing the way on the bottom and Dillard on the gas around the high side.

With 13 laps to go, Dillard shot by Scott down the back-stretch and led for the first time this season with 28 orbits in the books.

Scott remained faithful to the short way around the smooth 3/8-mile of red clay and reeled Dillard back in, eventually taking the lead for good with just six laps left as he won going away for his 45th career USMTS triumph and a $3,000 payday.

Dillard was a solid second while the younger of the Scott twins-Johnny-clawed his way to third after starting 13th. Thirty minutes earlier, he came from last in his Real Racing Wheels “B” Main to win that and get a spot in the main event.

Krohn held off Lucas Schott for fourth with Dereck Ramirez, Lucas Lee, Jake O’Neil, Toby Hodge and Friday night’s winner, Zack VanderBeek, rounding out the top 10.

After five events in the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by Production Jars, Johnny Scott remains the points leader by two markers over Dillard (466 to 464), followed by Ethan Dotson (394), Rodney Sanders (366), Dereck Ramirez (360), Joe Duvall (359), Bryan Rowland (341), Carlos Ahumada Jr. (335), Logan Robertson (334) and Zane Ferrell (324).

After two events in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental, Dillard is on top with 187 points followed by Schott (179), Johnny Scott (178), VanderBeek (172), O’Neil (160), Ramirez (157), Stormy Scott (155), Jake Timm (147), Krohn (142) and Robertson (130).

Sunday’s event at the Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss., has been rained out, so the next event on deck is the King of America VIII presented by Summit Racing Equipment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 15-17, at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan.

Dotson Drives to First USMTS Win at Kennedale

KENNEDALE, Texas – After losing two of the weekend’s three events, the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by Production Jars invaded the Kennedale Speedway Park on Friday. This was the third round of the Summit USMTS Winter Speedweeks, and the wet Texas week finished off with a fantastic finish for the history books. To see a full listing of official results, see the bottom of this article.

After scoring the most heat race passing points, Clyde Dunn Jr. redrew the pole position for the start of the 40-lap Summit Racing Equipment “A” Main but after catching a rut in the first turn a flat tire sent him to the pits along with two others as caution waved off the initial start.

Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year contender Ethan Dotson of Bakersfield, Calif., set the pace for the restart and pulled out to a sizeable lead with two-time USMTS national champ Rodney Sanders in tow.

Lapped traffic came into play with eight laps in the books, and Sanders used it to his advantage to squeeze underneath Dotson and grab the lead while Jack Sartain, Kevin Rutherford and 17th-starting Cade Dillard filling the rest of the first five spots.

Sanders stretched his lead over the next ten laps and began to put drivers running among the top ten a lap down.

Meanwhile, Dunn had worked his way back up to eighth after restarting the race at the rear of the pack but suffered a second flat tire and exited the rough-and-tumble battle.

With 20 down, officials cut the distance to 35 laps due to the rough conditions, but Dotson was reeling in Sanders and pulled even as the pair streaked beneath the white flag.

Sanders went low entering the final corner while Dotson scraped the mud off the outside concrete wall. Sanders slid up as he exited turn four as Dotson crossed over underneath.

Coming to the checkered flag, it looked as if a photo-finish was inevitable but Sanders suddenly slowed-a victim of a broken transmission-as Dotson scooted underneath and crossed the finish line first to score his first USMTS victory.

“No way I ever thought we could get a win this early on, this is awesome,” Dotson told USMTS announcer Chris Stepan in victory lane after just his third career USMTS start. “I wish my family could be here for his. Dad, we did it.”

Dotson, who turned 19 in January, is travelling with Joe Duvall and crew chief Scott Drake this season, Both drivers are utilizing a Chevrolet Performance CT-525 crate engine.

“I can’t thank Joe and Scott enough for giving me this opportunity and their priceless feedback,” he added. “When Rodney got by me I just wanted to stay with him. I saw him slow there at the end and I crossed him over and was just able to get by.

“This is just awesome.”

With the race shortened to 35 laps, Sanders was able to get the runner-up paycheck with Dillard charging to the third spot. Another rookie, Zane Ferrell, finished fourth and Johnny Scott passed 15 cars en route to a fifth-place finish.

Rutherford, Austin Bonner, Mitchell, Bryan Rowland and Bobby Malchus rounded out the top ten.

The 9th Annual Summit USMTS Winter Speedweeks continues this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 9-11, when the USMTS invades three of the fastest dirt tracks in Mississippi for a two-fer featuring the Summit USMTS Southern Series and USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup.

The titanic tripleheader gets started Friday at the historic Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Mississippi with gates opening at 5:30 PM and racing at 7:30 PM with Crate Late Models, Sportmans and Factory Stocks also on the bill.

Then on Saturday the touring titans of the USMTS bring the boom to the “House of Hook” at the Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi with racing at 6:30 PM and six big divisions of racing.

The action reaches a boiling point on Sunday as the meanest machines in America make their maiden voyage to the legendary Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi for a wheel-to-wheel showdown at “The Mag” with four classes in action and the green flag waving at 5:15 PM.
