Say What!

"Now I feel like I have a home track advantage, We have won a few here, but not really dominating wins. I got a lot of Wisconsin people here behind me, so I got to thank all of you guys. Bill Balog winning at Beaver Dam WI for his first World of Outlaws victory

“It’s an honor for me to drive this for Donnie and with Davey working on it, The whole Kreitz family and the whole crew. We’re just here having fun. It is what it is. We may not have had the best race car we had all year, but we took advantage of a good starting spot here tonight.” Lance Dewease winning night 1 of PA Speed Week at Lincoln Speedway.

“It was probably better to run the top, but Davey was there, We were just trying to get our car working down there in the slick. I thought I’d stay with it. I got screwed up on the start. I got in the wrong place and got hung up. Four or five guys passed me. We made it interesting. I’m just so blessed to be here and be able to do this. I’m thankful for everybody that supports me, and God is upstairs looking after me. I won a feature at Knoxville in my sixth decade, and I don’t know that anyone’s done that. That might be a hard record to break.”Sammy Swindell winning Knoxville IA NSL

“The car was just really good all night long, Feels good to be back with this team. (Phoenix Racing 59)This is a big win for us. We’ll be back at Eldora Speedway next month, so we’ll try to keep this going and get another one.” Jac Haudenschild winning Eldora Speedway Ohio Speed Week

"I felt really comfortable ripping the top in (turns) three and four and I took my time up there on the last lap, I could see Brady down there, but I knew I was getting a good run off of turn four. I tried to just start slowing down and making sure I hit my marks. We're kind of hit-and-miss right now, so we're working on a balance. These bigger, high-banked tracks seem to be to our liking right now, so if we can get the flatter tracks figured out we'll be good to go." Chad Boespflug winning Eagle NE USAC Sprints

"I was just thinking, if you would have asked me about Wednesday night on the way up here with this being out first race of the season, I would tell you that you were full of crap if you'd would have said this car was going to be up front, but hats off to the guys that work on this thing," said Marc Duperron, who led flag-to-flag on Friday night of the ASCS Skagit Dirt Cup.

“I’m getting too old to run the top,I knew guys were going to run the very top and run the very bottom, so I decided to try the middle. I can’t thank my guys enough for their hard work and support. We’ve got a lot of laps at this track. Feels good to get back to victory lane.” Randy Hannagan winning Lima OH All Stars Ohio Speed Week

"They don't call him 'Madman' for nothing,The bottom was just fast. It was my race to give up." Daryn Pittman winning Jackson MN world of Outlaws

The 3/8s mile oval was a new hunting ground for many of the MSCS drivers on hand to support the series. But some of the veterans had been there before. One of those was Mitch Wissmiller. The Saybrook, IL, driver and former MSCS Champion came to race. His car was fast. The inversion based on the redraw put his sprint car on the pole for the feature. He shot into the lead and that is where he ran for the entire 25 laps. The victory was worth $2,000! Race Results 6/27

Tuesday night was no exception as Justin Whittall completed his first top 10 finish with the United Racing Club in his young rookie season. A good pill draw saw Whittall start on the outside of the front row in heat race #2 which was stacked with 410 drivers, past URC Champions and other veteran drivers. Whittall showed that he can run with the big boys and finished in the 5th position after battling with 410 drivers Davey Sammons and Kyle Reinhart.

Stillwaggon and the 89 Quality Auto Body team will now make repairs and possibly pull out their back up car for Friday night's race at Big Diamond Speedway.
