Stan Lester of Fastrak pulled one out of the hat. I think Hot Rod LaManceís   $50,000 win at the three day GM Fastrak Crate Motors Nationals was the most important event in  weekly racing  this year. 57 teams from coast to coast and the nations  midsection made the trip to Wayne Gillenís beautiful Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap TN Only to get rained out.


While it rained we got a chance to meet some racers and talk.  Greg Walters in the 97 car Robby Ireland in the I 88 and  17 year old Branden Lindberg in the 88 car, with Maniac Racing, across country from Washington and Oregon. Ashley Lancster age 17,  the only woman driver in the show, made the tow from  Lake of the Ozarks Speedway In Mo. WI always has fast race car drivers at every Big event, and this was no exception.  Jeff Curtin, the regional fast track director was there in the 11 car. Troy Springborn in the 81 car  had a great run  to finish 3rd over all. Chris Carlson in the 14 was in contention until a blown motor took him out.  


Matt Daniels in the 18 and Chris Fergusan in the 22 Lead the young guns from the Carolinas. Anthony Meadows in the 31 from AL, Tony Kemp in the 16 car from GA, Bryan Bernhardt from Twin Cities in IN, and  Jason Walls in the 19 from Oak Level VA. were just a few of the drivers who came to compete. It was truly a National event.


All American Motorsports of the Dallas / Ft. Worth Texas area is proud to announce that after careful consideration that time is due for Jay Hallas to be recognized for his representation of the sport and his contributions.


I met Jay one time at Boone Really nice guy. He has helped with  the Texas  racing news since we started in 2000. In my opinion NO one has done more to promote the weekly racer in Texas than JM Hallas. Congrats from all of us at
