Skylar Gee announces his new deal with car-owner Logan Fenton

SprintCarUnlimited.com caught up with Sprint Car driver Skylar Gee and car-owner Logan Fenton to discuss the two sides pairing up for a pick-and-choose schedule in 2022.

+14 move in the Main sets the stage for a great start to 2018

Skylar turns 19 and gets Hard Charger Award on Night One

RA.   MESQUITE, Texas (March 16, 2018).  Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?  Skylar Gee turns 19 today and puts in one of his most impressive runs during Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series on opening night.  Gee struggled slightly in his heat race with a 6th pace finish, which set him in the B Feature.  Starting 8th in the Heat and moving up two places helped with valuable passing points to place high in the B main.

Skylar started in the fourth position in the B Main and moved himself up to finish second to transfer into the 25 lap main event.

Gee wanted to do some good on his birthday night, with his Mom and Dad and some supporters all helping him in this first race of the 2018 season.  He did not disappoint.  Gee started the feature back on the outside of the third last row of the 22 car field, in the 18th position.  After 25 hard-charging laps, Skylar moved up 14 positions to finish just off the podium in an impressive 4th spot.

Skylar Gee captures the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night of the night award for his efforts with a +14 position move up in the Main.  Gee also puts himself 4th in points for the 2018 Championship.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway starts off the 2018 season

Skylar Gee Ready for Lucas Oil ASCS Opener

Bryan Hulbert – LEDUC, Alberta, Can. (March 14, 2018) Readying for his Sophomore season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by Sawblade.com, Canada’s Skylar Gee begins his season this Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17 at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas.

“I’m excited to get going again. We’re starting the year with a new team and crew chief, so it’s going to be different having steady help each weekend where I can focus more on driving the car,” commented Gee who has joined with Bryan Sundby and BDS Motorsports.

Asked about joining with BDS Motorsports, Skylar said, “Bryan and I talked a lot last year and he helped me on weekends that my Dad had to go home and we worked well together. When we got to PRI this past December, he ran the idea of joining the BDS team and I jumped on it. I knew at the time I wanted to run the ASCS Tour again, and this just fit what we both want to do.”

Skylar Gee 2017 ASCS Lucas Oil Sprint Car Dirt Series Rookie of the Year

LEDUC, Alb.  (November 14, 2017)  What a year it has been for Skylar Gee and team. It was a major step for them to make the jump from regional racing to the National Tour.

“We are happy to announce that we will return to the ASCS National Tour for the 2018 season. I cannot thank everyone enough who has helped us along the road this season”, announced Gee.

Carlan Services, Pat Beck Motorsports, Gee and Gee Racing, Shark Racing Engines, Strongs Crane Service, Impact Coatings, Napa Auto Parts (Fox Creek AB) Clark Construction, Global Power Services, Shane Liebig, Hoosier Racing Tire, Ace Manufacturing, Driven Racing Oil, Wings Unlimited, Camp Vinyl, Penske Racing Shocks, Dale Richards, Steve and Conny Reeves, The Rilat Family, Brian and Dave Sundby, Jimmy Carr, Ken Woodruff, Scotty Evans and Lisa Davies.

As the young Gee gets set to make a run for the ASCS National Tour Championship for 2018, the 18 year old has even bigger plans for the near future.  The ultimate goal of running the World of Outlaws tour like his father, Tim Gee, did back in the 1980’s is still his biggest priority.  Gee knows that it will take a big commitment financially and mentally to get to the big show before he turns 21, but the dream is alive and well.

Mesilla Valley Transportation saved the weekend

Mesilla Valley Transportation Delivers Skylar Gee To Cocopah Speedway

LEDUC, Alb. (November 9, 2017) When Skylar Gee set out in pursuit of the 2017 ASCS Brodix National Rookie of the Year, his number one goal was to not miss a race. That goal was nearly dashed with the finish line in sight as issues with the team’s truck had them stranded in Dallas, Texas.

Frantically looking for a truck, a call to Royal Jones with Mesilla Valley Transportation was all it took to deliver the No. 99 to the 2017 finale for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at Cocopah Speedway in Somerton, Ariz.

“Royal saved the weekend for us for sure. We wanted to make the full schedule, and thanks to him, we get to accomplish that,” commented Gee.

Making it just in time to check out Wednesday’s Fan Fest, the team took the opportunity to test the car during Wednesday’s practice session, despite running on three hours of sleep, “We’re tired, but we made some laps tonight and the car felt really good so hopefully we can carry some speed into the weekend.”

Skylar’s second venture to the Arizona oval, the driver of the Carlan Services No. 99 looks to improve over his last visit during the 2015 Winter Heat.

“I feel a lot better coming into this event. We got really beat down during Winter Heat, but this time, I feel like I’m racing in class. Overall, I’m really happy with the car and the engines, so we’ll see what we can do.”

Special thanks to Sammy Swindell for jumping in and offering his expertise.

Skylar Gee Captures Top 10 In Short Track Nationals Debut

LEDUC, Alb. (October 18, 2017) Skylar Gee’s first trip to the COMP Cams ASCS Mid-South Short Track Nationals was a successful one with the Carlan Services No. 99 rolling to a 10th place finish in Saturday’s $15,000 to win feature event.

“It was a great weekend for us. We unloaded and were fast right out of the gate so it definitely showed us we are getting better,” said Gee who is the leading Rookie with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

Coming out of Thursday’s opener with a 14th place in the 25-lap preliminary feature, Gee was 12th overall in event points. That brought running Friday into question, with the team deciding to go ahead and draw in. The decision was pivotal to the weekend’s success.

“We figured we’d a least try and run Friday. Whether we made the show or not, we wanted to learn about the track a little bit more, and ended up we ran way better than we did Thursday and jumped from 12th in points to fourth, so that really helped.”

Of the improved performance, Skylar gave special thanks to Sammy Swindell for jumping in and offering his expertise.

Still having to run in a Showdown Qualifier on Saturday, the 10 lap affair was worth double points with Gee capitalizing with a run from sixth to fourth to secure the final transfer into Saturday’s big dance.

“It was such a relief,” commented Gee, who made the show with an engine assembled by his father. “I’ve had to run a lot of B-Mains this year in order to make the show, and it helped us to where we weren’t having to scramble. I just felt like we were able to be more focused on what we needed to do in the feature.”

LEDUC, Alb. (October 6, 2017) Continuing to pick up speed through his rookie season with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Skylar Gee hopes to keep that momentum rolling as he makes his first visit to the El Paso County Raceway on Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7,

“The place looks pretty neat. Looking at pictures and videos, I’m excited to get there and see what we can do. More than that, we’re ready to do some short track racing,” said Skylar who leads the Brodix ASCS National Rookie of the Year standings.

Rolling out of the Fall Brawl at I-80 Speedway, Gee again was able to race his way into the A-Feature, where he was able to advance from 17th to 12th, despite the track narrowing throughout the event.

“I made a few mistakes the first few laps, and that cost me, but as we went on I was able to pick those spots up and start really moving through the field. I feel I would have probably finished top-ten if I hadn’t missed it at the start, but overall it was a good run.”

LEDUC, Alb. Can. (September 30, 2017) Skylar Gee can count his trip the 7th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial a success with the Carlan Services No. 99 making the cut all three nights with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

“It was kind of bittersweet. We were really good Thursday, but Friday we weren’t as good. Not really sure what we did wrong. We didn’t really change much, but I think the track just threw us off a little bit, but we hung on and finished,” commented Gee of his preliminary nights that saw a best finish of 14th during Thursday’s A-Feature.

Setting Gee into a Qualifier on Saturday, Skylar raced on position shy of a direct transfer into the show, but was able race through the B-Main to better his overall weekend finish with a 13th place showing from the 19th starting spot.

“We had a car capable of transfer out of the Qualifiers, but we just couldn’t seem to get the moves to work, but we made it through the B-Main, and had a great car in the feature.”

Setting sights on another new facility, the No. 99 will venture to the high-banked, I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. on Saturday, September 30 for the Fall Brawl.

“I haven’t watched anything on I-80, but I’ve talking to the BDS Motorsports team and they said it’s fast, but you can race so I’m pretty excited to get to another new track.”

No. 99 takes on Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark.

Skylar Gee Ready For Riverside Debut

LEDUC, Alb. (August 23, 2017) Skylar Gee is looking forward to getting back on a short track as the driver of the Carlan Services No. 99 takes on Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. on Thursday, August 24 with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.

Off a return visit to the Missouri State Fair Speedway this past Sunday, Gee was less than thrilled with the outcome of his weekend at the half-mile.

“We were looking to have a lot better run than we did for sure. I just flat out made a mistake in the Heat race that knocked the front end out of it. After that, we were just buried the rest of the night,” commented Gee.

Making his debut at the “The Ditch”, Gee feels good to get back on a quarter-mile.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to short tracks. I haven’t really run a lot of big tracks, so the smaller tracks just really suit my driving style better.”

Commenting that his father, Tim Gee, had experience racing at Riverside over 30 years ago, Skyler said his dad described the track as ‘unique’. All the more reason that Skylar is excited to see what all the hype is.
