It was a hint of old days at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS, on Sunday night. But instead of Robert Ballou putting up W’s with the olden Sprint Bandits Tour ‘N Topless series like he did at the big half-mile back in 2007 and 2008, this time it was against the Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car series along with the Missouri-based WAR gang. Full “The Wheatley Chronicles” recap at

Say What!

"It's like the world is off my shoulders, For Rob Hunter to give me a chance, I mean, you start to doubt yourself. I just knew in the past, I didn't have the team to do it consistently and everything had to be perfect to win. Rob gives us everything, and I'm thrilled to get this win." Chad Kemenah winning at Path Valley Speedway PA Sunday.

"What an amazing event. What an amazing racetrack. They have put so much work into this track, and I appreciate it." Cody Darrah winning Port Royal PA All Stars

"It's fun racing with Shane (Stewart). He's a class act. He races hard and he races clean and it's fun to come out on the better end of him, Never been so proud to wear a hat in my life." Donny Schatz winning Devils Bowl Speedway TX WoO

“This is huge, I want to thank my dad. He’s put a lot of money in this, along with BK Trucking and C&B Mushrooms. This is unbelievable. We were quick from the get-go. We were terrible last week, but my dad and the crew worked on it hard, and again tonight in the pits. JJ Grasso winning at Lincoln Speedway PA

“You know how we are. We were running good so we had to try another car and see if we could make it go good. I guess it worked out,” said Rob Chaney in Attica OH victory lane

"It was rolling around pretty good, But I was bouncing off the fence, doing stupid stuff,. Luckily, it calmed down and I was able to get it back underneath me.Greg Hodnett winning Williams Grove PA All Stars

"I'm just happy to finish second and be on the frontstretch. We about ballparked it going into Turn 1, so I'm happy to run second." Danny Dietrich Williams Grove All Stars

Rico Abreu had a rocket ship of a car from the time they unloaded at the Silver Dollar Speedway for the 8th Annual Bill Brownell Memorial presented by Shane Scott and Withrow Motorsports and took the win.
