    Runnin' the High Groove

    It’s been a long time since this column has appeared here for this, I apologize but truth be known, is due to health issue’s there were

    only three races in 2014.

    Its Memorial Day weekend and Dana and I are just now getting ready to go to the races. By no means, however have we been idle.

    Good friend and the area’s top announcer Mike Babicz has given new life to his Lets Go Racing Motorsports radio show. Yep you guessed

    Mike has asked Dana and myself to co-host this two hour radio show on Friday nights.

    Race fans can get all the news from motorsports on WLIP AM radio, it is 1050 on your AM dial. Those of you that prefer can also, tune in on the

    web at scroll down to the motorsports link and enjoy.

    I am the fortunate one here. I get to spend two hours talking auto racing on the radio with my daughter and one of my best friends,

    someone I think of like a brother, Mike Babicz.

    After a little leg work, the Let’s Go Racing Motorsports show is back on the radio.

    I hope all the area race fans, racers, crews, and officials listen in.

    We have been working with my other brother and best friend John Surges, who is the man behind the Vintage Modified Stock Car group and the

    Southeast Wisconsin Short-Track Hall Of Fame and Museum. John has been able to get several of this year’s nominee’s to call in the radio

    station and talk about their fabulous careers.

    With myself being a sprint car guy it was very cool to talk with Donny Goeden and Dave Moulis. To hear these two talk about their fabulous

    careers was quite a thrill. You have to remember I was able to watch Donny’s dad, Willie Goeden tear up the Milwaukee Modified Circuit and the

    first Moulis Joel race his modified on the IRA circuit. Open wheel standout Pete Ostrowski has also been on the show as has IRA leader Steve


    First time Wilmot Raceway victor Phillip Mock was also a guest on the show. Talking about his first Wilmot win at a race track where his

    dad, Kim, had won at on a regular basis.

    John Surges has called in announcing for the first time to the public all eleven nominee’s for the Class of 2015 for the South-East

    Wisconsin Short Track Hall Of Fame. These nominees are Lowell Bennett, Rich Bickle Jr., Jim Blazek, Donny Goeden, Dave Moulis, Pete Ostrowski,

    Bill Prietzel, John Quinn, Ray Toft, Dave Watson, and John Ziegler.

    Surges and his Vintage Modified Stock Car group are putting on their Cedarburg Revisited show on June 6th from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM on

    the front straightaway at the old Cedarburg track in downtown Cedarburg.

    On June 13th the 38th annual Let’s Go Racing Motorsports and Custom Car Show presented Mike Babicz will be held at Wings Etc. in Antioch,

    Illinois from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM.

    Bill Balog, Ben Schmidt, and Jeremy Schultz have been IRA Feature Winners in 2015. For Schmidt it was his first career IRA win. Balog

    has vacated his thrown with the IRA to race with the new National Sprint League. Despite much tougher competition Balog has been able to put

    his 17B in the top 10 each night. It’s good to see Balog have success with the National Sprint League.

    For Dana and myself the neatest guest we have had on the radio show has been Rick Dawson, owner and promoter of the Anderson Indiana,

    Speedway home of the greatest pavement sprint car race on the planet.

    Dawson called in the radio show and we talked about this weekends, Memorial Day, Payless Little 500 Sprint Car extravaganza. The Must

    See 60 winged sprint car race is on Wednesday, May 20th, Pole Day for the Little 500 is Thursday, May 21st, followed by Bump Day on May 22nd.

    Then the race we wait for all year, the Payless Supermarket Little 500 is set for Saturday night May 23rd.

    Pack up the family truckster this week and head to Anderson Indiana, and enjoy the world’s greatest pavement sprint car race the Little

    500 Held for the 67th consecutive year. It’s the best four days we have all year.

    Dana and I will give Mike the Little 500 update Friday night May 22nd, live from the Anderson Speedway.

    That’s all for now see you in Anderson.

    God Bless
