Midwest Racing Roundup          By Tom Botos     6-5-11
Race fans this has not been a good weekend for racing! As far I can see it is mother nature 5 and the race fans 0 in this game of trying to dodge mother nature and esscape being rained out. Gas City IIN) Speedway did get there Friday racing in as well as Bloomington Speedway. Anderson,Mt. Lawn and Shady Hill Speedways were all rained out Saturday Night. the JEGS All Star Tour Late Models have rescheduled for Saturday July 9th at Anderson Speedway.
Union Couny (IN) Speedway a 3/8 mile high banked dirt oval as far as I know has not raced this season. The Health Department stated Union County will not reopen until the restrooms are improved. If you want information on this track please go to .
Anderson Speedway will host the IOFS International Outlaw Figure 8 Series this Saturday Night June 11th alomg with Street Stocks,Thundercars and IOFS FWD Figure 8's. This is the second visit for the IOFS at Anderson this season. Check out Gary Bedell and Charlie Hargraves as they battle Chris Green as well this weekend in IOFS competition. The fas Outlaw Figure 8 cars always put on a good show on the ultra fast crossover of Anderson Speedway!
Mt. Lawn Speedway has the yet agin rescheduled May 5-0 50's which is fifty lap features for Late Models,THundercars and Hornets Saturday June 11th. THe UMRA TQ Midgets will join the regular three classes This Saturday as well.
Baer Field (IN) Speedway will have Autograph Night Saturday June 11th plus Late Models,Modifieds,Street Stocks,Mini Stocks and FWD's. Baer Field Speedway has a very  old school feel to it when you walk in the main gates. They have great food at reasonable prices and they do not drop any classes when they bring in the HOSS Sprints or Must See Sprints. If you get a chance please chewck out Baer  Field Speedway in FT. Wayne,Indiana .
Sunday June 12th Lucas Oil Raceway Park will feature the CRA Super Series,CRA Sportsman,CRA Street Stocks and CRA FWD Compacts as they all wage war on this huge oval track. Coolers are allowed into this speedway and I urge you to check out this show if yo get the chance.
Gas City I 69 Speedway will host the USAC National Midgets on Wednesday June 8th along with Non Wing Sprints and Thundercars. This should be an awesome show for open wheel fans of dirt! There is no racing Friday June 10th at Gas City.
Bloomington Speedway hosts USAC National Midgets  and Non Wing Sprints as Indiana Midget Week continues Friday June 10th. I have not made it to Bloomington yet this season. Bloomington has great food along will hillside lawn chair and bleacher seating for the fans. Pack you a cooler and heat on out for great racing at Bloomington Speedway. if you have any news notes or comments please email me at . Gotta go see you at the races!
