Say What!

“First of all, I’d like to thank the great fans for coming out tonight,Tonight they did a great job with this racetrack. I want to thank Guy Forbrook, Tod Quiring,…Brian Morrison’s power is unbelievable. I’m the lucky guy that gets to drive this thing.” Danny Lasoski in Moberly MO NSL vivtory lane

"To hold off Dave at his palace for my first win here, that's a pretty awesome thing. This place is so, so hard. You don't get a fluke wins here. That was all she had. I ran that thing as hard as I possibly could those last two laps. Luckily, we had the car good enough to stay up front and capitalize on Chris' misfortune.Chase Stockon winning Friday night at the USAC Kokomo Smack Down

“Congrats to Stuart…it was a good run. I hate leading. I was really just worried about the 97 car (Dean Jacobs who came into the night leading the points). I don’t want to take anything away from Stuart…he did a great job. I knew he would blaze the top. I just couldn’t do it…I had too much to lose. I have thank Kistlers and Maxim and ProShocks tuned by OC…it seems like we’re better in the slick than a lot of other teams, I really have to thank two of the classiest people I know. My dad and mom have my back and all my crew guys for all their hard work this year.” Byron Reed winning his 7th Attica Raceway Park 410 championship

The day was dedicated to raising money for the Kevin Swindell Recovery Fund. Swindell, known as the Bulldog, was recently injured at the famed Knoxville Nationals, has a long road to recovery so the day was created to help out the family.

Since the time frames stated for the auctions were not expired, the decision was made to continue the silent auctions on September 27th when the UNOH All Stars return to the track. This is the only fair way to let people still bid on the items they were trying to win and to raise the best potential money we can for the recovery fund. A huge thanks to Jac, Sheldon, and Patty Haudenschild, for the live auction items we sold, and to Renegade Racing Fuels, Classic Ink, and all the others who donated items for the silent auctions. A huge thanks to all that donated money and bought items before the rains hit. Danny Smith was selling t-shirts rapidly as well with the money going to the fund as well.

  • The Bumper To Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series completed yet another tremendously successful weekend as their Festival tripleheader was simply spectacular, treating Wisconsin fans to some of the best sprint car racing in the country. Huge crowds and solid car counts were again the norm as IRA was supported by packed houses both nights at Wilmot during the Kenosha County Fair, and Sunday at Angell Park as IRA headlined the annual Corn Fest there for the very first time. Saturday's Fair race at Wilmot was SOLD OUT! The fair that night had to stop letting people on the grounds as they were over capacity. 34, 33, and 25 car fields supported the 3-race weekend as IRA again proved that they have the highest member supported car count per event in the business. IRA has only dipped under 30 on three ocassions this season and their low is 25, (which is a high for many). Congrats to this weekends winners: Jordan Goldsberry, Todd Hepfner, and Jeremy Schultz. And special thanks to our fans, sponsors, teams, staff, promoters, Ken Iles, and everyone who helped make this weekend, and IRA as a whole, the long time success story it is. The racing was GREAT too! Certainly a weekend to remember. We move on to a pair of co-sanctioned events this weekend as MOWA is our guest at the Bill Waite Jr Memorial at LaSalle Saturday, and the National Sprint League will join us at Angell Park on Sunday. Another great weekend awaits.....8/24
