Eldora 4-Crown USAC Midget Winner Rico Abreu PAUL ARCH PHOTO

Say What!

“It’s really awesome to get a win at this place, I’ve always dreamed of winning a race at Eldora Speedway. It’s really cool to be able to stand up here on this victory lane stage. I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work. Kyle, Mark, Jackson, and all of the guys back home, Brett and Matt; they all do so much. My crew chief, Kyle Ripper, gave me a great car tonight. We’ve been knocking on the door to get a big win, so this is awesome.” Ian Madsen winning the All Stars main at Eldora Speedway

“I told Fred (Rahmer) during the red that Danny’s going to go to the top, so we’re going to have to run the bottom, When I saw him peel down to the bottom, I knew that was my chance to go back around him on the top. We finished second last year and we didn’t wait to finish second again this year. We ran our tail off. Danny did a nice job, but when you get out there in the lead, you’re not sure which way to go. He’s been really fast this year. I think being in second may have won us that race.” Stevie Smith winning the Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway PA

"You know, Jack [Hockett] means the world to me. Connie and everything she's going through, and everything this family has gone through these last 10 years. They're all really dear to my heart and I've wanted to win this damn race for a long time, but we've always sucked here but my buddy up there let us win this one,"  Wayne Johnson winning the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway MO

"Keith Kunz gives me phenomenal racecars every time I come and race with him. I'm very fortunate I get to race with him, It's special every time I get to stand up here (at Eldora). I've come close a lot this year and last year, but just never was able to get a win, but we've had solid finishes here."Rico Abreu winning the 4 Crown Nationals USAC Midget main at Eldora Speedway

"Someone showed me the bottom early, and I was working that line when I showed him my nose there and then he dropped down and blocked that, After that, the bottom started going away or at least I wasn't as good as I was early and after that red, I committed to just sail the top and it worked."Johnny Herrera winning the Hockett/McMillin Memorial Opener at Lucas Oil Speedway MO.

“I was sitting there catching my breath because my arms are just pumping right now, I had a death grip on the steering wheel. I thought I was gonna crash three or four times down there in one and two and lost a lot of ground and had to catch back up.”Danny Dietrich winning Susquehanna Speedway PA
