Midwest Racing Roundup      by Tom Botos  1-2-09
Well racefans its been a cold and chilly winter  but soon Spring will be here and that means many Indiana Speedways will be roaring to life once aagin for the 2009 Racing Season! Anderson Speedway held there New Years Day Bash with almost 60 cars doing battle that afternoon. Anderson Speedway has Dropped there Friday Night Racing Program and combined it with there Saturday Night program. The SuperTruck Division has been dropped which means the menu for each Saturday Night regular show consists of Street Stocks,Thundercars,Figure 8 cars,and FWD Oval Division. There is an Outlaw Figure 8 scheduled for Friday July 3rd,The CRA Late model 125 is Saturday April 11th,this is the only appearance for CRA Late Models at Anderson Speedway in 2009.
          The CRA Sportsman have 3 dates at Anderson on April 18th,August 8th,and September 12th.A Thundercar Enduro 200 is on March 28th. I really miss  seeing the CRA Late Models at Anderson.I would like to see  them start a Late Model Sportsman division with similar rules allowing Mt. Lawn Speedway Late Models to compete as well. on June 27th will be a 300 Lap Street Stock Race at Anderson. I would like to see Anderson and Mt. Lawn run identical rules in all  classes  and share cars.I think I am living in a dream world?
           Vermillion County Speedway in Danville,IL  will be Running both Friday and Saturday Nights adding Sprints and Crate Late Models tho there Saturday Night Schedule.VCS is a Late Model track and has a big LM following in that  area. I wish the new promoters best of luck in 2009.
     The CRA Super Series Late Model Banquet is Saturday January 10th in which i will be going and taking photographs. The Indy Circle 9 Trade Show and Auction is Saturday January 31st.I hope to have news and Pics from these and the HARF Racing Banquet is Sunday june 28th. Gotta GO See  You At THe Races!!
