SARVER, Pa. (April 29, 2022) – For the first time in 2022, and for the second time in his career, “Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so in exciting fashion at the famed Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. Schuerenberg’s first-ever All Star victory occurred on July 9 a season ago, winning at Stateline Speedway in Busti, New York.

Utilizing the outside-pole position by way of dash result, Schuerenberg spent most of the first half of the 30-lap program chasing Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck, eventually using heavy lapped traffic to his advantage to track down the Monrovia, Indiana, native, by lap 11. Racing nose to tail at the flagstand, Schuerenberg made his move the following circuit, using momentum at the exit of turn two to slingshot by Peck down the backstretch. Their near nose-to-tail battle would continue on, but a caution on lap 14 would give Schuerenberg the break that he needed, bringing down a wall of slower traffic.

From that point forward, Schuerenberg remained in control, surviving periods of additional traffic, which made its return in the final six circuits, and a few late surges by Benton Ridge, Ohio’s Greg Wilson to earn the $6,000 payday. Tyler Courtney slipped by Wilson for second in the final corner, followed by Justin Peck, and a hard charging Logan Wagner, who climbed 16 spots to finish fifth.

“I’m so proud of my crew. We’ve decided to give them a little bit more responsibility this year. I’m not calling any shots on this race car. They have the work ethic to go along with what we need. They may not have everything figured out like a super experienced team, but the work they put in shows,” Hunter Schuerenberg said in Lernerville Speedway victory lane, ace of the Vermeer Motorsports/Logan Contracting/No. 55 sprint car. “They are constantly studying their notes and working on ways to make the car better…and they tell me what I can do better. I think it’s all the difference. And I can’t thank the Vermeers enough. They are the ones who took a chance on me in the first place.”

UP NEXT:
Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio, is next on the weekend agenda, set to host the All Stars on Saturday evening, April 30. Like Lernerville Speedway, Sharon Speedway has a long history with America’s Series, hosting the winged warriors on 109 occasions with the most recent on July 10, 2021. Spencer Bayston, since making the leap to full-time World of Outlaws competition, is the most recent Sharon Speedway All Star winner, piloting the Sam McGhee Motorsports No. 11 to an $8,000 Lou Blaney Memorial victory over Cory Eliason and Bill Balog. In total, Sharon’s northeast Ohio complex will host the All Star Circuit of Champions on four occasions in 2022, two of which back-to-back (Sharon Nationals) over Labor Day weekend.
