Say What!

“We had a good car all night. We got lucky and got a good draw and got out early and had quick time and made it through our heat. We were really really good in the dash and I put myself in a good position. I got a great restart there…kept my speed up a little bit. We came to the line together but I had a head of speed going. I could have pressed the issue with Cody a couple of times but it was a 40 lap race so I laid back a little. It was great to race with Cody and we’ll have to battle with him every week with the All Stars,” said Dale Blaney winning Attica OH WoO

"This is a relief, for sure. I struggled when I got into this car at first, and now we've got some momentum building, both in this car and our USAC sprint car. It's a great opportunity, and I can't thank everyone enough who is helping me get in situations like this. I'm just glad to be here. It was tough to get the speed up around the top, especially after restarts, so it was a challenge to do it and not make mistakes. I made one big one, and a yellow was my best friend tonight to save us those spots after I plowed the cushion and smoked the fence early. I'm excited and ready to go racing a bunch in the next couple weeks," Kevin Thomas Jr said winning Plymouth IN USAC Midgets.
