Say What!

It's a great win. I was racing the top of the track, it was the only place that I was good. The car was great and I knew it was going to take a really good race car to beat us. We had a good draw tonight. My car was really good on the starts. Under the open red flag, we did tighten the car up a bit. It was a good win. I really love winning tonight especially racing with the WoO's." It was great that the fans hung in here during the rain delay." Lance Dewease winning Williams Grove PA World of Outlaws

"We're going to make the most of this one tonight because you never know when you'll get another one!" Greg Hodnett said winning Williams Grove PA World of Outlaws

"How about that crew I've got? Hats off to Kale Kahne. Man, he does a great job, Kolten, Carber - these guys work their tails off every day and just give me a really good car. I'm only as good as the equipment I use and this car is pretty good every night." Daryn Pittman winning Lincoln Speedway World of Outlaws

RESULTS...

  • NT360 Sprintcars AU)The inaugural Bob Ekins Memorial for 360 Sprintcars was run and won last Saturday night at Darwin’s Northline Speedway, and it went the way of the in-form driver Jason McIver. Despite being the form driver of the season so far, McIver didn’t have it all his own way. After qualifying from pole position for the 20-lap feature race, he was faced some fierce competition from two-time Sydney Speedway Track Champion and local 410 Sprintcar racer Ben Atkinson. Race Results 7/21
  • UMSS)Brooke Tatnell has won sprint car races at numerous tracks here in the United States and over in his home country of Australia. On Sunday night July 20 Tatnell added the Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, MN to that list. Tatnell passed race leader Davey Heskin on lap 10 and led the remainder of the nonstop 25 lap feature. Tony Norem, who had started fifth and fell back to ninth on the opening lap, roared back up through the field and was closing fast on Tatnell when the checkers w3ed. Tatnell, his family, and crew from the Ron Olson #34 sprinter celebrated in Anderson's Pure Maple Syrup/Rock Auto Victory Lane following his 28th career UMSS sprint car win. Race Results 7/23
  • UMSS)Sunday nights are certainly proving to be the night for Mike Mueller of Stacy, Minnesota. For the third time in four tries on Sunday nights within the past year, Mueller has driven his #87 Traditional sprint car to victory. On Sunday night July 20 at the Granite City Speedway, Mueller passed race leader Rob Caho, Jr. coming to the white flag and went on to record his fourth career UMSS Traditional sprint car feature win. Mueller emerged from his car, jumped up on the roll bars, and raised his hands in jubilation. He then celebrated with his father Herb and crew in Anderson's Pure Maple Syrup Victory Lane to cap off a thrilling charge forward from the fifth starting spot. Race Results 7/23

  • CRASH PAD)It's Simple. To get a compression fracture (broken back) in a crash, the spine is compressed. That happens when one end is held firm (against your rigid seat bottom) and force is applied to the other end ( by the momentum of the weight of your body, head and helmet). The force is created when the seat suddenly stops and that can happen at any time during a crash, as well as in a frame bottom impact. A good containment seat protects against other injuries but holds the spine in such good alignment that Impacts at an angle, now create vertical down movement in the seat that compresses you and can break vertebrae. The CRASH PAD has material that tested best for the US Military to Reduce Spinal Impact Forces. Put a CRASH PAD or the CRASH PAD material under your butt before something happens.
