Re: Bubby Jones

My earliest recollections of auto racing involve Mr. Jones every Saturday night during the summers of the mid 1960's at Fairbury, Illinois' American Legion Speedway. When we lose our hero's, and Mr....

Re: Competing Non-Wing Sprints in the Heartland

Jacksonville has good success regardless of what divisions are in action there. Mr. Dobson runs his racing events as good as it's humanly possible to do so, and if there is a glitch he is right out...

Re: Competing Non-Wing Sprints in the Heartland

The USAC National Midgets ran at Macon, Illinois in July of 2017 and the spectator turnout was dismal, at best. The A-main that night was won by Christopher Bell and stands to this day as one of the...

Re: IMRA race at Southern Illinois Center

Yep, we ordered our tickets for the Shamrock Classic on Christmas Eve. Always look forward to indoor midget racing at Du Quoin!!

Re: Competing Non-Wing Sprints in the Heartland

Looked over the WAR :27: schedule and was again disappointed to see that Illinois will host only 2 (Spoon River & Quincy) of the 46 dates on the schedule. I reckon those of us who have been...

Re: 4 in a row for Larson!

I too wish they'd bring Du Quoin back. DQ was a great entertainment value. Downtown St. Louis, not so much. We could attend the Knepper 55 for less than 1/2 of what it costs to do the dome thing...

Re: Junior Johnson

I sat and chatted with Mr. Johnson in the gate area of Daytona International Airport just before Christmas in December of 1988. He was setting all by himself waiting for his flight up to Charlotte,...

Re: Usac: 2020 usac national midget schedule is largest sinc

I'm sorry, I'll be a bit more clear. I didn't question the reason why or the logic, I only said it's a bit interesting.

Re: Usac: 2020 usac national midget schedule is largest sinc

I find it rather interesting that the USAC National Midgets will be a support division for a $10,000.00 to win UMP Summernational's event at Joliet, Illinois.

Re: Usac: 2020 usac national sprint schedule released

It seems Illinois, with Joliet on NASCAR weekend being the exception, just isn't a fertile area for USAC's sprint & midget divisions.

Read on the Fairbury Facebook page that the 2 WoO Sprint Car...

Re: Williams Grove Speedway - 2020 Schedule

Glad to see Williams Grove is back on the Silver Crown schedule. Let's all hope Steve Buckwalter get's the win he deserved but got screwed out of last summer!

Re: World Of Outlaws Sprint Car Series 2020 Schedule - POSTE

Not all that surprising that Fairbury, Illinois isn't on the schedule. Fairbury is primarily the dirt late model racing capital of Illinois in solidly dirt late model country and their foray into...

A Day That Will Live In Infamy

I would urge everyone on this day, December 7th, to take a moment to reflect upon the gravity and historic significance of today. On December 7th, 1941 our nation was savagely attacked by the...

Re: Kyle Larson

Is Larson ever really off of that "roll"?

It is mind boggling to consider how many wins and championships Larson would amass and what sort of legend he'd build if he ran dirt open wheel cars on a...

Re: IMS Sold to Penske

Let it indicate anything you want. It's meaningless to me. I don't really need a leg to stand on 'cause the disgruntled employee part was a mere musing, definitely not an accusation. The evidence...

Re: IMS Sold to Penske

This guys' dialog consistently smacks heavily of a disgruntled former employee of an entity that was left behind due to the decisions made back in 1995-96.

Personally, I'm quite happy and content...

Re: IMS Sold to Penske

The reality of my existence in comparison to Penske, or someone like him, makes speculation on my part utterly ludicrous.

What is within our grasp of reality is knowing that Penske and his...

Re: Big day for Roger Penske (observe the rules of the site.

If Penske had saw fit to dabble in dirt racing it's a safe assumption that dirt racing would have been better for it. But, whether it's true or not or fair or unfair, he always seemed just a bit too...

Re: St. Louis Midget race

It's all in the eye of the beholder. Lodging within walking distance of the building is going to be quite pricey and in most cases parking is charged in addition to the lodging costs. If you stay far...
