Say What!

"I think I might cry, I've been trying to do this for forever it seems like. I wasn't going to catch Brady (Bacon). We were about equal it seemed like, but we started catching him and I just told myself, 'Okay, just slow down.' I figured as long as I didn't hit the last infield tire, we'd be okay. I told (car owner) Todd (Keen) before the race that the top was going to slow down eventually and the bottom would be where we wanted to be and, thankfully, it worked out in our favor."Scotty Weir winning Gas City IN USAC Sprints

"This track is beautiful, Tod Quiring and everyone who has done this hard work to build this facility, it's an honor to be here. That was a fun race. We're a smaller budget team. To come in and perform like that is a testament to the hard work that goes on behind the scenes." Craig Dollansky winning Jackson MN NSL

“Feels great to get one more of these, I just can’t thank Bonzai and the guys enough for what they do for this team. They work their butt’s off every week and it clearly shows. I have a lot of great sponsors who back this team. Without their help and support, we wouldn’t be here. I just can’t thank them enough.”  said Sheldon Haudenschild winning Lincoln IL All Stars

"This shows what good equipment, good cars and two of the best mechanics around can do, I'm just blessed to drive this thing. This feels great. It's been a long time coming, and I can't thank Don and Linda [Kreitz] and Davey [Brown] enough. These guys prepared over the winter, and we are going to run 30 shows. That suits them, and it suits me. It helps us stay fresh." Lance Dewease winning Williams Grove World of Outlaws Friday

"We want to win everywhere we go, but man when you come to Pennsylvania the fans here are feisty and you hear a lot of swear words directed to you - that's what this is about, This is a free country and I am glad there are people who can voice their opinion that they hate you or love you. Donny Schatz winning Lincoln Speedway WoO

Blake Robertson made it 3 wins in a row after winning the Western RaceSaver feature event at Bakersfield Speedway.
