“That was freakin’ awesome! That’s some good racing there, ain’t it?,I used the wall to not run into somebody else, so we’re glad to be standing here.” said Danny Dietrich after scoring his 36th career Lincoln Speedway win.

"Everybody knows, at least the guys that race with us, when it gets a little rough like that, our car doesn't normally do very good and I'm not as young as I used to be for that cowboy up," Sam Hafertepe Jr winning night 2 of Skagit Dirt Cup.

“I’m going to get most of the credit here tonight, but the people who really deserve the credit are the ones standing behind me,This is a brand new race car. We rolled one over the other night at Wayne County Speedway, so we’ve been up until about four in the morning the last few nights working to get this one ready. Kevin and Jordan [Swindell], the whole crew; they all work so hard and make all of this happen. Without them, I wouldn’t be standing up here.”  Spencer Bayston winning night Ohio Speedweek at Muskingum County Speedway

(Car owner Mark Burch) is one hell of a person, one hell of a friend, and a great crew chief,He and I are the only crew, and I do the fuel. He does everything else. He works his tail off, and I want to thank his beautiful wife Mary and his kids, because they’d probably rather have him home. The yellows started coming out, and you don’t know how much of your tire you need to save, and how much you need to go. The track was shining up and we had to save our tire. It worked out for us.” Danny Lasoski winning at Knoxville Raceway and being inducted into the Knoxville Raceway Hall of Fame the same night.

Stewart started the day out strong, qualifying second, but a bit of luck also came into play later that night. At the start of the West Liberty Hawkeye 25 Feature, both Johnson and Sweet got past Stewart, but a caution before the lap was complete forced a reset, giving him a second chance.DIRT/World of Outlaws 6/24

  • Mercer Raceway PA)The races for this week have been canceled due to the saturated grounds. "We received too much rain over the last two days and we waited as long as we could, hoping that the rain would stop," said assistant promoter Eric Williams. "But the track and grounds will not dry out sufficiently to allow for safe conditions for our racers and fans." Attention will now turn to getting the facility ready for the big Independence Day holiday spectacular. Bonnell's Rod Shop will add the Patriot Sprint Tour to the mix for July 1, so there will be three classes of Sprint Cars to thrill the fans. And, Pizza Joe's will once again present the Fireworks!

  • Park Jefferson Speedway SD)A good crowd and a clean night of racing were featured on Z98 night at the Park Jefferson Speedway this past Saturday. When it was done, some familiar faces were in victory lane. In the Keizer Wheels Championship Sprints, it was first timer Eric Lutz pulling into victory lane. Lutz has been on fire wherever he runs, and just finished sweeping a weekend of racing at the Black Hills Speedway in the ASCS Frontier Region. Lutz was able to take advantage of his front row starting spot to get the jump on Greg Bakker and Casey Friederichsen. Bakker, the form track prep manager at Park, was strong in his State Bank of Fairmont #11 and had some opportunities to get by Lutz but Lutz’s #5 machine was too strong. Casey Friedrichsen had a strong finish to take third. In the IMCA RACESaver divisions 2nd night ever at Park Jefferson, it was veteran John “Longhair” Lambertz picking up the win over Shane Fick and winner Colin Smith. Lambertz, who has more experience than Fick has age, was able to take the jump from the first row and cruise to his first win at the facility. Fick and Smith put on a good show for the runner up spot and young Elliot Amdahl finished in 4th. Park Jefferson will be closed this week to allow fans to attend the Sioux City Awesome Biker Nights festival. Racing will resume on June 24th with the return of the LMSS on Pedersen Machine night.
