Say What!

“That was for you,” said Thomas as he hugged his dad. “We’ve had a fast car all year…just no luck. We finally beat Byron Reed at Attica.” Cale Thomas winning first time at Attica OH

“I honestly cannot thank all of these guys enough. This has been really cool. We are definitely having one helluva year, especially during this second part of the season. We were on the podium what seemed like 10 or 12 times this year, but just couldn’t get the job done. We’ve been doing so much better at placing ourselves in better positions. I’m just - man, I’m excited.” Cole Duncan winning Eriez PA all Stars

“I was either going out of the park or winning this, Our car was really good all night long. They’ve been working so hard. We debuted this at the first Outlaw race and weren’t good at all. To go from not making the show to standing on the frontstretch at an Outlaw race says something about these guys. I wasn’t lifting. I probably should have because I was banging off that cushion pretty hard, but how many times do you get to win an Outlaw race? This is a dream come true.” Brock Zearfoss winning Night 1 Williams Grove Speedeway World of Outlaws
