Say What!

“Turkey Night has basically been number one on the list for our whole team, I’m from California, crewmen Jerome Rodela and Chris Tramel are both from California and (car owner) Tom Malloy is from California. This is the race we’ve been looking at all year and this is the race we’ve been preparing for. This is the biggest race of the year for us.” Logan Seavey winning the 80th USAC Midgets Turkey Night at Ventura CA

“It’s really cool to get my sixth win,We were close here last year, so I’m glad that we could be one spot better and pick up another win.  We got some more points, which is crucial going into Ventura.  But there’s nothing like winning; it’s pretty damn cool.”Buddy Kofoid  winning USAC Midgets at Merced CA Wednesday

“I’ve had a great car all year, but I really think we just finally got a little bit of momentum, This series is so tough; everybody’s so, so close. Just catching a little bit of momentum can change your whole year; it can turn your whole year around, and we’ve seen that here.”Justin Grant winning USAC Midgets at Merced CA Tuesday

So, just a ‘heads up’ notice that Crash Pad will be applying a price increase in early 2022. Details forthcoming. That means that NOW is the time to get your Crash Pad seat insert to Reduce Your Risk of Spinal Injury during next season – at 2021 pricing. Heck, I’ve even taken my Crash Pad out of my Sprinter and put it in my office chair to help Reduce the Risk of Sticker Shock Injury when I call one of our vendors!! Buy online at or call 717-235-7250. Wait for the outgoing message and leave a voicemail if I can’t answer quickly. 12/4
