WOW! What an awesome racing weekend!
Indianapolis,IN      by Tom Botos     5-25-09
Happy Memorial Day racefans! I cannot think of any better way to celebrate than catching some great side by side paint swapping racing! I went to two tracks that I have not been to since I think since 1997. In 1997 I went hogwild and went to many different tracks most I had read about in MAARN News and MARC Times.
Friday night was the Jim Blount Memorial at Plymouth (IN) Speedway which had over 70 cars compete while honoring the famous Jim Blount father of Bobby Blount. Tyler Roarig won the Late Model Feature in a slugfest battle back and forth with Scott Ross and Shane Sanders. My favorite driver from Plymouth,Indiana Brian Ross pulled out of the Late Model feature early and I am not sure why.
Plymouth (IN) Speedway is pretty neat little 3/8 mile bullring with a figure 8 course inside it. I am looking forward to the IOFS International Outlaw Figure 8 Series Late model race at Plymouth on Saturday June 13th. Plmouth Speedway is running the CRA Sportsman Series this Saturday  May 30th giving the late models the night off. The CRA Sportsman put on a whale of a show and I definitely would not mind seeing it.
New Paris (IN) Speedway is hosting $20.00 a carload night with a regular show of Late Models,Street Stocks,Mini Stocks,Pure Stocks,and spectator races.New Paris should have a good field  of Late models with Plymouth not running Late models in lieu of the CRA Sportsman.
Anderson (IN) Speedway is running the CRA Street Stocks in a wild 75 Lap slugfest.Anderson will also have the Figure 8s,Thundercars,Legends,Thunder Roadsters,and FWD Oval Division.
Mt. Lawn (IN) Speedway is having there Spring Championships with Late Models,Thundercars,Hornets,Fastcarts and Mini Cups.
A few weekends ago I went to Whitesville,KY for the IOFS International Outlaw Figure 8 Series season opener event. I met Harold Adams there he is a racefan that goes to the Sportsdrome (IN) Speedway every week. Harold does an outstanding job covering the races as a reporter for I have not been to the Sportsdrome in many years but Harold makes you feel like you were  there with his race results.If you ever get a chance to go to the Sportsdrome Speedway you will see good car counts and a growing fan base which is crucial to survive in the state of our economy.Wherever you live please take a carloand of friends and family to the races!!! Gotta go see you at the races!
