Say What!

"I've never dreamt in my wildest dreams that I would ever get this opportunity, I have been blessed to run with the World of Outlaws this year. To do this in Charlotte, in front of all these fans, this is badass and that's all there is to it!" Greg Wilson winning World of Outlaws at Concord NC

“I have to thank my guys George and Skippy and Donny…they do an unbelievable job. This is a brand new car. We put it together this week. We really haven’t been running very good, but this was flawless. First time in a long time from lap 20 on I got better,”Dale Blaney winning Attica OH All Stars

"I had a chance to slide Kaley and did it too hard, Thankfully we got a yellow and I got a second chance. I was lucky enough to sneak around in turns one and two on the outside. It doesn't normally go to plan like that, but it did tonight." Ian Madsen winning 2 NSL 360 features at Jackson MN

  • Patriot Sprints)Jared Zimbardi was racing third on lap 10 until a caution that involved the two race leaders of Chuck Hebing and Danny Varin. Zimbardi was able to hold off a very quick Stewart Friesen and a hard charging Cory Sparks to win his first Patriot Sprint Tour event of the year. Race Results 5/28
  • USAC)In recent years, Tanner Swanson hasn't gotten behind the wheel of a racecar as often as he once did. Despite his limited schedule of races that one could count on a single hand, the 25-year-old Kingsburg, California driver makes each and every one of those opportunities count, specifically at Lucas Oil Raceway in Brownsburg, Indiana where Friday night he earned his fifth victory in his last six visits to the .686-mile paved oval at the "Carb Night Classic...The Race Before the 500". In the process, he tied Mike Bliss to become the winningest driver in USAC Silver Crown competition at Lucas Oil Raceway. USAC 5/28
  • World of Outlaws)A caution with six-laps remaining helped propel 2016 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contender Greg Wilson to his second career World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series victory in the Circle K/NOS Energy Drink Outlaw Showdown at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Friday night. Wilson, who won his first World of Outlaws race at the 4-Crown Nationals at Eldora Speedway in 2015, led just one lap of the 30-lap feature, after he passed race leader Shane Stewart on the final lap to capture the checkered flag. DIRT/World of Outlaws 5/28
