Say What!

It's a relief to get that first win of the season, as they can be elusive sometimes. We had a hiccup with an engine issue on practice night, but these guys are champions for a reason and have had us ready to go the last two nights," Brady Bacon said in Bubba Raceway Park FL USAC Sprint Car victory lane Saturday.

"This is probably one of the biggest of my career. Next to winning an Outlaw show in the Prelim night at the National Open, this one ranks right up there, We ran third the first night, second the second night; we had to win. We couldn't go home fourth or fifth so this was it."said Mark Smith when asked what winning the Ronald Laney Memorial meant to him.

"I felt like this place owed me one after losing one with a flat tire a couple years back. We kept our deal together, and Derrick Bye kept working hard to keep this momentum rolling. We're working with the same car that won Oval Nationals to end last year. I knew we were in a tough spot as we hit traffic, and Bacon can get off the bottom so well here. But we battled back and got by him, and that's a great feeling," Robert Ballou said in Bubba Raceway Park FL USAC Sprint Car victory lane.

"The bottom was the place to be, but Mark had a pretty good start there. I spun the tires, and may have got into him a little bit there, but that was the key to the whole race was getting a good start and not making any mistakes."Jason Sides winning night 2 of ASCS Lucas Oil action at East Bay Raceway Park FL Ronald Laney Memorial.

"What a hell of a racetrack. Wow, there are no words for that racetrack. It was just awesome up there bouncing the fence. That was unreal." Aaron Reutzel winning night 1 of ASCS Lucas Oil action at East Bay Raceway Park FL Ronald Laney Memorial.

  • World of Outlaws)Daryn Pittman took the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series season opener Friday night with an epic last lap pass of the reigning series champion Donny Schatz. Just a lap sooner the feature win was in Schatz's sights as he approached the lapped car of Kraig Kinser. Schatz dove low in turns three and four to make the pass but was not able to make the line stick. As he exited the turn his Bad Boy Buggies car drifted up the track and over the cushion. Pittman saw his opportunity. DIRT/World of Outlaws 2/13
