Say What!

"I just tried to keep my composure and hit my marks It's something that I feel like, over the last couple of races, I've lacked - hitting my marks perfectly and making sure I get through the turn right. I feel like my car has been so fast here lately, I kind of went away from concentrating on hitting my lines and making it manageable. It's something I knew I needed to focus on and make work."Tanner Thorson winning night 2 of Merced CA USAC midgets.

"I'm super stoked, especially with all the time and energy and money that gets spent to come out here to the west coast," We haven't even broken the top-10 in the last three nights, and we've been really fast. Racing circumstances just haven't really played out." Thomas Meseraull winning night 1 of Merced CA USAC midgets.

"I can't believe we just beat Kyle, Kyle is one of the best in the world and really good in midgets. As a younger kid coming out of California and racing Outlaw Karts, I always looked up to him. Everyone already knows how good he is, and racing with the best helps you become better." Buffy Kofoid winning Bakersfield USAC midgets Tuesday.

  • Skagit Speedway WA)For the seventh year, Skagit Speedway is proud to organize the Champions 4 Community Food Drive to benefit local food banks. Champions 4 Community is comprised of the class champions from the 2020 season at Skagit Speedway. Skagit Speedway takes pride in giving a hand up to those in need throughout the season and as we head into the holidays. Donations are offered from race teams, fans and local businesses. Our first donation is from Steve Beitler in memory of Harold Beitler for $500. In 2019, with the buying power of the Helping Hands Food Bank, more than 200,000 pounds of food, equal to 7 semi truck loads was distributed to the area food banks courtesy of the Champions 4 Community Food Drive. "Giving back to our community is really important to me" said track promoter Steve Beitler, "to be able to provide over 100 tons of food to our area food banks and local community is very gratifying. The generosity of our race teams and fans is amazing, we had donations from fans as far away as Tennessee.” "Every year Skagit Speedway donates a lot to our food banks" said Helping Hands Food Bank Executive Director, Rebecca Schlaht, "We distribute about 100,000 pounds of food each month and their donation will provide a lot of meals to the area food banks and the people of Skagit County."
