Say What!

“I’ve been so close a couple of times, and I felt like I let one slip away last year, What a way to start the year! We got to traffic, and things got hairy with a couple of guys. I’ve watched enough races to know they can be won or lost in traffic. I did as well as I could, and the sprint car gods made me earn that one! We had reds and yellows…I just wanted Doug (Clark) to throw the checkers.”  said an emotional Austin McCarl in Knoxville Raceway Victory Lane. “

 “That was a blast tonight. What a car we had,Cody Jacobs gave me a great car here tonight. We wanted this one bad. We always seemed to struggle when we came here, but tonight was different. We started eighth, but just kept on going.”  Tim Shaffer said in Wayne County Speedway All Stars victory lane. “

“This is great, It’s always exciting to have a race like this and come out on top.” Kyle Hirst winning NARC KWS at Ocean Speedway CA

“I’m not done yet, As a driver, when you start off the season like that, you can’t help but question yourself and your ability,” Daryn Pittman winning Riverside Speedway AR West Memphis WoO

“Everyone had me washed up two years ago, so to run up front and finish on the podium is a lot of fun.” Paul McMahan at Riverside Speedway AR West Memphis WoO

"I can't remember the last time I won here. I have to thank Bonzai (Bruns) and Zach Ames...I couldn't win a race without those guys," Jac Haudenschild winning Attica OH All Stars
