LOts of people were not happy with Little Belleville going against the Gold Crown. I even e-mailed POWRi asking if they could move their date,and in the same e-mail I inquired if they had ever thought of having a midget week.

Kenny Brown e-mailed me back and I later talked to him on the phone,and he told me why they couldnt move the date,etc etc. He was interested in a midget week,so we talked about that,and it happened the next year and every year since then.

Any long time readers here would know that I loved Little Belleville and made my racing schedule around when they raced midgets there. I was told by one member here that I wasnt a real race fan in choosing to go to Little Belleville instead of the Gold Crown. That night I went to Little Belleville,and was gonna head home,and then I thought I hadnt heard anything from Monica Clauson,so I went to Tri City and arrived just in time for the 4 wide parade lap. So I got to see 2 midget features that night,one of the many times over the years that I have done 2 races in one day.

Now the guy that said I wasnt a real fan,I saw running to the parking lot with about 4 to go apparently to beat the rush out of the parking lot on the way home........

It is on Interstate 70 and has good access from all directions (although it does have some access road issues)
It has more than enough parking and seating (not to mention the comfort of the seating)
It is close to the center of the US
The area has a long and large history of Super Mod and non wing sprint car racing.
There is a good base of non wing cars in the area.
The area fan base has always supported big non wing shows.
Casey Shuman is a huge and welcome addition to the track management team.

Let's hope we soon see the return of the Ron Shuman Classic and see someone win that Pedal Car

I wouldnt mind seeing 3 races in one swing,I-70,US 36 and Lakeside. If they wanted to add a 4th race,I would just as soon go to Eagle again too.... Theres my weeks picks in a pinch.....Not that it will happen but.....

Three great tracks and all three are within 45 minutes from my house. Let's make it happen.

As far as I know, Eagle is still running. Nearby I-80 just closed down though.

I canít remember if they were scheduled for this past year or not. Saw a great midget race at US 36 ages ago.

Yes it was I-80,which isnt very far from Eagle Raceway. I-80 had Tour N' Topless races there after Knoxville for a few years,and I would hit those along the way to the finale at Lakeside.

Another good thing about having a race at Eagle,is the Speedway Motors museum is just down the road a few miles to the west,and that should be on every race fans hitlist....
