2017 All HammerDown! Team –December 30, 2017 Rocklin, CA.HammerDownUSA.com, today, named the 2017 All-HammerDown! Team. Led by Racer’s Racing Series Champion, Donny Schatz, the 40 driver “team” is comprised of the drivers that finished in the top 40 in HammerDownUSA.com’s Racers’ Racing Series point standings. Points are awarded for a 60-race schedule of big-race events. You have to finish in the top 15 in an A-Feature to score points. This year there were 223 drivers that earned points but only the top 40 receive All-HammerDown! status.

Three drivers continued their streak of making the All-HammerDown! Team in each of the 15 years since the honor was created in 2003. The legendary trio is: Daryn Pittman, Joey Saldana, and Donny Schatz.  Nine drivers made the All-HammerDown! team for the first time in their careers: Bill Balog, Tyler Courtney, Cole Duncan, Cory Eliason, Shane Golobic, Justin Grant, C.J. Leary, James McFadden, and Tanner Thorson. The age range of the 40 driver team goes from Leary, Carson Macedo and Thorson at age 21 to Lance Dewease at age 52.

“I like to use the All-HammerDown! Team as a snapshot of a year in American grass-roots racing.” said Bobby Gerould, editor of HammerDownUSA.com. “We sought the help and expertise of Mike Larson and Kirk Spridgeon to fine tune the 2017 schedule of events that would count as points races. The results yielded a diverse group of 40 drivers that, I think, any race fan would love to see in action.”  Gerould continued, “From the beginning, in 2003, when we started this deal, it was meant to shine light on the highest paying races and at the same time encourage drivers to challenge themselves by traveling to different tracks across the country.” (read it all)

 

Inside the Cycleland Speedway star-factory.

"I think Cycleland is the only place you need to go to learn how to race." - Rico Abreu.

It is not as if Cycleland Speedway is, or ever was, a secret. The track, located south of Chico with an Oroville address, has been at its present location since ground was broken in 1960. The recent success of Cycleland graduates Kyle Larson, Brad Sweet, Rico Abreu, Tyler Reddick, Kyle Hirst, and Sean Becker - just to name a few, however, has helped to bring a fresh abundance of enthusiasm for the eighth-mile dirt track known as “THE perfect proving ground” (Larry Shelton’s term).
