Say What!

“Probably part of the reason I’ve struggled so much this year…qualifying the first half of the year and bad pill draws. Everyone is so close it’s sometimes hard to get buy guys who are in clean air. Mid-season there I was pretty frustrated. We started the year off with some of the same stuff we did last year and it just wasn’t working. We had to change some stuff and we’ve been pretty good the last month and we finally have a win to show for it,” said Byron Reed winning at Attica Raceway Park OH

"My brother won his first ever Sprint Car race over here, and dad won quite a few, so I was hoping that I was going to get one sooner or later, dad won a lot of races her and he ran every Saturday for a long, long time. It took me a long time to learn something, I guess." Perhaps the final instruction came this night. Jac [Haudenschild] showed me the best way in three and four, he shoved it around me, and I got to run a little bit harder after that." Dale Blaney winning Mercer PA All Stars

"I would like to thank (Atomic Speedway Owner and Promoter) Brad (McCown) and the Renegade Series, It's a new beginning and what a great way to start." Randy Hannagan winning the inaugural Renegade Sprints feature at Atomic Speedway OH

"The Heartland Catfish car has just been performing great. We should have won last night. I think we dominated that thing pretty good just had a motor issue which is very unusual with these Fisher power plants, We should have won here last year too, so this is pretty sweet." Jeff Swindell winning Lexington TN ASCS

Tuesday August 26th 2014

"After the last two weeks of our break from racing I have decided to retire from racing. I would like to still drive my midget at the Chili Bowl. I have been thinking a lot about this for the last three months. It has been a hard decision to make. I always knew when the time came to retire it would be clear. I've had a long and very successful career. Part of the reason for the timing now is I've spent the last two weekends with my son, Kevin, racing. I haven't had any time to spend with his racing the last four years. He will drive a (NASCAR) Nationwide car for the rest of the year and I want to be there to support him. I was going to do a limited schedule next year or retire at the end of this year. I've had a long talk with (Big Game Treestands Founder) Tod Quiring and we both agreed that this is the best for me. Amy and I would like to thank Tod and everyone at Big Game Treestands for the last four seasons. We would also like to thank everyone who has helped or been a part of my career, my fans and the friends that I have met over the last 43 years."  Sammy Swindell

  • Sammy Swindell)Sammy Swindell has decided to retire from professional racing effective immediately. Swindell, who has driven for Big Game Motorsports the past four years of his 40-plus year career, isn't planning to race again outside of the Chili Bowl Nationals. Here are his words to the fans: "After the last two weeks of our break from racing I have decided to retire from racing. I would like to still drive my midget at the Chili Bowl. I have been thinking a lot about this for the last three months. It has been a hard decision to make. I always knew when the time came to retire it would be clear. I've had a long and very successful career. Part of the reason for the timing now is I've spent the last two weekends with my son, Kevin, racing. I haven't had any time to spend with his racing the last four years. He will drive a (NASCAR) Nationwide car for the rest of the year and I want to be there to support him. I was going to do a limited schedule next year or retire at the end of this year. I've had a long talk with (Big Game Treestands Founder) Tod Quiring and we both agreed that this is the best for me.

  • Ken “Wags” Wagner reaches a tough decision and retires from collecting racer $$$$! It is with much regret that I announce my retirement in helping the low buck racers at every CRA race. That said, my 25 plus years in a quest to help them is done. I am retiring my Wagtimes efforts because it is time. It was an incredible ride and now I must say goodbye! My tough decision is due to a lot of important changes in my life, not the least of which is I don’t live near So Cal any more where my heart is, and will always be, with the CRA. It was a joy doing all the Wags stuff over the years, and looking back, I couldn’t have done anything more satisfying in my life, other than being married to Mrs Wags for 40 years. I don’t know how it all started, but our success was due to the great many “helpers” along the way. Thank you to all who got involved in the over $615,000 of Wagsbucks that “WE” collected and handed out to the racers. The biggest thanks go to the Wagtimer’s whose support was unending! I am very proud of what we accomplished and will cherish my friendships forever. Thank you……………………… see you along the racing trail! 8/20
