Say What!

“I’ve been so close a couple of times, and I felt like I let one slip away last year, What a way to start the year! We got to traffic, and things got hairy with a couple of guys. I’ve watched enough races to know they can be won or lost in traffic. I did as well as I could, and the sprint car gods made me earn that one! We had reds and yellows…I just wanted Doug (Clark) to throw the checkers.”  said an emotional Austin McCarl in Knoxville Raceway Victory Lane. “

 “That was a blast tonight. What a car we had,Cody Jacobs gave me a great car here tonight. We wanted this one bad. We always seemed to struggle when we came here, but tonight was different. We started eighth, but just kept on going.”  Tim Shaffer said in Wayne County Speedway All Stars victory lane. “

“This is great, It’s always exciting to have a race like this and come out on top.” Kyle Hirst winning NARC KWS at Ocean Speedway CA

“I’m not done yet, As a driver, when you start off the season like that, you can’t help but question yourself and your ability,” Daryn Pittman winning Riverside Speedway AR West Memphis WoO

“Everyone had me washed up two years ago, so to run up front and finish on the podium is a lot of fun.” Paul McMahan at Riverside Speedway AR West Memphis WoO

"I can't remember the last time I won here. I have to thank Bonzai (Bruns) and Zach Ames...I couldn't win a race without those guys," Jac Haudenschild winning Attica OH All Stars

The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue. Edward R. Murrow



  • Buddy Kofoid)Coming off a solid run at the Asparagus Cup last week Michael “Buddy” Kofoid and Van Dyke Motorsports are now set to venture towards the cool confines of Petaluma Speedway with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour on Saturday. The inaugural $10,000-to-win Asparagus Cup at the Stockton Dirt Track saw Kofoid charge from 14th starting to run as high as fifth at one point, before settling for a sixth-place finish. Press Releases 4/25
  • Caleb Armstrong)Caleb Armstrong's three hour tow east to Mansfield Motor Speedway in Mansfield, Ohio, may not be brief, but it will be pressure-free, as the New Castle, Ind., native is an automatic feature starter for Saturday's Sprint Car World Championship main event. Press Releases 4/25
  • USAC Western)This Saturday, April 28th, the Light Up The World USAC Western States Midget Series presented by CBD Living Water will invade the Santa Maria Raceway.

  • Tanner Carrick)Tanner Carrick and the Keith Kunz Motorsports team spent their weekend competing with the Lucas Oil POWRi Series as they took to the Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, IL and the I-55 Raceway in Pevely, MO. “We had some really good speed both nights, and we were in a good spot on Friday night until a late restart didn’t go our way,” Tanner Carrick said. Press Releases 4/25
  • Robert Ballou)A relentless winter in Indiana finally played nice over the weekend and allowed Robert Ballou to get back to racing as he picked up a third place at the ‘No Way Out 40’. “It was great to get back in the car and go to work,” Robert Ballou said. “We had a decent night, but there is always room for improvement.” Press Releases 4/25
  • Paul Nienhiser)Paul Nienhiser had one of those weekends where anything that could go wrong, did indeed go wrong. Despite a tough weekend, Nienhiser was able to step back and take some positives away from two nights of action. “It was a tough weekend for us, but it wasn’t for lack of effort,” Nienhiser said. “We had good speed both nights, and we were able to make an Outlaw show which is huge.” Press Releases 4/25

Keeping his momentum rolling into Saturday, a switch to the 410cid program ended with a fourth place finish at the famed Knoxville Raceway. "I was really pleased. My car hasn't felt that good at Creek in a long time once we got it figured out, and finishing like we did a Knoxville having not really run the 410 much this year, and not racing Knoxville as much as I used to, it just felt good," commented Johnson of the weekend.Press Releases 4/25

  • Beaver Dam WI/SLS Promotions)Jeremy Schultz is probably one of the only drivers who didn’t really seem to mind that the start of the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association (IRA) Outlaw Sprint Series season was postponed twice by inclement weather. The delays gave him and his team some added time in the shop to fine-tune as they gear up for the 2018 campaign. Press Releases 4/25

  • Ian Madsen)Saturday night was shaping up to be a great night for Ian Madsen and KCP Racing.

We have speed, and fortunately with the race tonight we don’t have much time to dwell on it.” Press Releases 4/25
  • Monty Ferriera)Precision Water Systems sprint car driver Monty Ferriera scored a sensational win in the IMCA Western Racesaver Sprint Series race at Santa Maria following a stunning last lap pass.

It's useless to hold a person to anything he says while he's in love, drunk, or running for office. Shirley MacLaine



  • World of Outlaws)After two rained-out attempts to race the quarter-mile high banks of Tri-State Speedway this season, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will return once again on Sunday, May 13th, immediately following the two-day #LetsRaceTwo at Eldora Speedway. “We’re determined to make this race happen for our fans and drivers,” said promotor Loris Helfrich. “We’re excited to have the World of Outlaws here again this year, and to continue to make history with the Series on its 40th anniversary.” The Series makes its annual stop at the Haubstadt, Indiana track on Sunday, May 13 — so bring Mom, or at least make her breakfast that morning! Tickets from the previously scheduled events on April 14 and 22 will be honored, and all details remain the same, except for an earlier start time. Pit gates open at 2PM, Grandstands at 2:30PM, Hot Laps at 5PM, and Qualifying at 5:30PM. For tickets call the track at 812-768-5995. Last year, the stars aligned for Parker Price-Miller at Tri-State. Inheriting the lead on Lap 18 after Sheldon Haundenschild ran into a slower car in lap traffic, causing him to do a complete 360, Price-Miller had to endure challenges from 2016 Tri-State Speedway winner David Gravel. Meticulously working his way through lap traffic, Price-Miller picked the best lanes and would go on to win his first career World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series race.4/24
  • Lee Grosz)Lee Grosz made his first appearance of the season to the “Sprint Car Capital of the World,” Knoxville Raceway this past weekend. A practice session on Friday night allowed the team to try out different setups and get the Fischer Auto Body/HI-10 Sports No. 4J dialed in for Saturday night. While the results sheet will show a 23rd place finish, Lee had a much stronger night than it would appear. Press Releases 4/24
  • MSCS)Tri-State Speedway will be presenting the Spring Showdown this coming weekend on Saturday evening April 28th. The racing program will feature the AMSOIL United States Auto Club and the Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series. This will be a co-sanctioned event with the two 410 non-wing series competing under the USAC format. The Showdown will be the first actual event of the season for the MSCS sanctioning body. Unfavorable spring weather became an overriding factor on an earlier April date. USAC has also faced two cancellations in Indiana but has already raced in Florida and is scheduled to race at Bloomington Speedway on Friday before traveling to Haubstadt. Press Releases 4/24
  • Oswego Speedway NY)Following the exciting announcement that Oswego Speedway’s concession stands will get a makeover this season as new food vendors Cam’s NY Pizzeria, Dino’s House of Burgers, and Skip’s Fish Fry will bring their award winning menus to the ‘Steel Palace’ in 2018, one of those vendors is in the running for a pretty big honor that covers all of New York State.

The B Team(#69OT) will run the 28th at Lawrenceburg for the regular weekly sprint car show with Thomas Messeraul at the wheel. This is a new car making her debut with Richard Hoffman and Dan Launderville making the set up calls and The Cowboy coming out of retirement. Look for a B Team schedule, that won't conflict with anymore USAC races , in the near future. Come see us in the pits and look for the KTJ merchandise for sale at Bloomington and Tri-State. The goal is 3 wins. 4/24
  • USAC CRA)After securing the lead from Jake Swanson on lap sixteen, “The Demon” Damion Gardner (Concord, California) won last Saturday’s “Sokola Shootout” at Perris Auto Speedway.

  • USAC)When a new season beckons, a number of new driver/team combos come to the forefront to make a splash on the USAC Silver Crown Champ Car Series scene, which begins this Sunday, April 29, at the Terre Haute Action Track with the "Sumar Classic." Just one year ago, it was the new combination of driver Chris Windom and team owner Gene Kazmark who stole the spotlight in their debut together at Terre Haute. For 2018, Windom once again finds himself in a similar realm, taking on a new endeavor, but with an experienced team. There's no other team that has been more of a consistent front runner over the past two-plus decades than Gene Nolen's team. With USAC Triple Crown champ Jerry Coons, Jr. from Tucson, Ariz. as a teammate, you couldn't ask for a better one-two punch than Nolen has in his familiar yellow cars this season. USAC 4/24
