Say What!

“My dad used to take me to Irwindale Speedway, and we’d watch Turkey Night there every year, This is one of the races I fell in love with. I didn’t think I’d ever get a chance to run in it, never thought I’d make a show and certainly never thought I’d be able to win one.” Justin Grant winning the USAC midgets Turkey Night Grand Prix at Ventura CA

“All of a sudden, I started running them down really fast. I picked one off, then picked a couple more off. Once I got into second and into open air, I could visually see myself getting closer. At that point, I knew that’s where I really needed to be, and I couldn’t let myself get taken off the top. Luckily, I got by Spencer for the lead before that red. Otherwise, he probably would’ve moved up and it could’ve been a different story.”Buddy Kofoid winning USAC Midgets at Merced CA

“I’ve won World of Outlaw races, All Star races and things like that, but I’d never won a USAC National Midget race. I told (car owner) Sean Dyson last year when we raced together that I’d love to win one of these. It’s something I’ve really wanted to cross off my bucket list.” Carson Macedo winning Merced CA USAC Midgets
