May 2, 2019, BURLINGTON, ON –Kody Hartlaub won the first Rivalz Racing Elite championship in dominating fashion. The Hanover, Pennsylvania, driver scored 11 top five finishes in 15 360 dirt sprint car races on iRacing to take the title over Vittoria, Ontario’s Ryan Beagle.

“It started off being a really great deal to run,” said Hartlaub. “It was really fun. You just had to be consistent every week.

“I just want to thank everyone that’s involved with this deal. You have a heck of a product here. I have to thank the Law Offices of Wegge and Casey, TH Designs, UDSRA, Fastline Performance, HighSide Racewear, and everyone involved in making this happen.”

Hartlaub and his entire team of UDSRA sim racers were the class of the Rivalz field week in and week out, but as the season progressed many local Ontario racers showed they could hang with the best.

Ohsweken Speedway regulars Beagle, Chris Steele, and Jesse Costa had frequent success while drivers from the Niagara area dirt tracks like Brandon Gruhl and Shayne Pierce contended on a weekly basis.

In the end Hartlaub won the championship by 12 points over Beagle. The third place finisher Kevin Loveys was another 64 points back. While Hartlaub had the best average finishing position. The driver with the second best average did not finish second in points.

Jeremy Zarfos missed a handful of races which hurt him in the standings, but when he was in the event he was in contention for a win. Zarfos led all 30 laps of a caution filled race at Williams Grove to close out the season, and the win was his third top-two finish in the last four races.

The driver who came second in points did it with unparalleled consistency and speed. Ohsweken Speedway Thunder Stock racer Beagle turned many heads out-pacing many sprint car racers to take second in points.

Eight drivers had perfect attendance in the 15-race Rivalz Racing Elite championship: Hartlaub, Beagle, Adam Buchanan, Larry Moody, Jeff Flaro, Brandon Gruhl, Stevin Goldner, and Barry Goldner. Another seven drivers missed just one race all season: Kevin Loveys, Dakota Kuhn, Troy Wagaman, Allan Downey, Jeffrey Barker, Rick Scott, and Greg Boydell.

“We consider the first season of Rivalz iRacing to be a huge success,” said series co-founder Clinton Geoffrey. “Our goal was to get racers together to help make the off-season shorter. We had full fields every week, and we made a lot of new friends.

“When we launch our second season in the Fall I expect things to be even better.”
