Say What!

“That was a tough race with Donny Schatz right there and I’m definitely glad we came out on top. You don’t have many opportunities to beat Donny the way he’s running, so you always want to capitalize whenever you have the chance. Sometimes the cautions work in your favor and sometimes they don’t, luckily they fell at the right times for me tonight. It’s always the hardest to get that first win out of the way and I’m excited to do it with a lot of friends and family here tonight. Big thanks to all of my guys for working hard and continuing to give me great cars.” Brad Sweet winning Stockton CA WoO

“I could hear him. I kinda’ saw him I think off of two there on that last lap, and I didn’t think I could go to the bottom there in turns three and four, so I just went to the top. I figured that he would slide me and I needed to get down in the moisture with him going the wrong way. I got to the moisture off of four just in time,  I don’t want to rough nobody up. I think we raced really hard and really clean. With lapped cars, there just wasn’t anywhere to go, so you make the most of what you can with your race car and that’s all you can do.” Danny Dietrich winning 2 in a row at Lincoln Speedway

“This has been like 10 years coming. My dad always said it would be like real easy when it did come…it wasn’t that easy. My guys…Andy Potter, my dad and my grandpa…they just gave me the best car. I couldn’t do nothing but drive it up front. It was pretty awesome. It’s great to start the season out with a win. Attica has some of the best local competition there is. To see a four heat show tonight was pretty awesome. Thank you fans for coming out. I have to thank Gressman Power Sports and Ferguson Water Works and Big Jerk and Tommy Tire and Helms and Sons Excavating. I have to thank my wife and son for being here to night,” Caleb Helms said winning opening night at Attica Raceway Park OH.

Unfortunately, when all was said and done, Mother Nature had the final word at the our Chico Mini-Gold Cup opener.
