Hey racefans I left some things out of my last article that I wanted to talk about. The IOFS The International Outlaw Figure 8 Series 2010 Schedule is released with races planned at two new tracks added to the schedule this year. Kilkare (OH) Speedway in Xenia,Ohio and Columbus (OH) Speedway have each scheduled IOFS races for this season. Kilkare Speedway has seen the Outlaw Figure 8 type car in years past with an America's Figure 8 Challenge event held there years ago. I have never seen a figure 8 race at Kilkare and I am very excited about this one! Kilkare Speedway does not have a regular weekly Figure 8 Division. Years ago Kilkare had a pure stock class that would run a figure 8 feature on Friday Nights. The IOFS puts on a whale of a show and they are expecting a few more drivers this year to run the entire 2010 schedule.  Columbus (OH) Speedway is a 1/3rd mile semi-banked oval that installed a Figure 8 track originally to host the wild and woolly school bus figure 8 races and train figure 8 races. I encourage you racefans that have never seen an outlaw figure 8 race to attend some IOFS events in your area.I guarantee you will not be dissapointed with the high speed crossover action that the IOFS Series provides! Below is the 2010 IOFS International Outlaw Figure 8 Series schedule

Kokomo (IN) Speedway reopens Sunday April 18th featuring Non Wing Sprints,Street Stocks and Thundercars. I am gonna try to make a few shows at Kokomo during the 2010 racing season. Many of the drivers that I cheer on at Gas City Speedway on Fridays turn around and race Sundays at Kokomo (IN) Speedway. The UMP Modified Division will make monthly appearances at Kokomo during this season.
Bloomington Speedway opens Friday April 16th with Sprints,Super Stocks and UMP Modifieds. General Admission is $12 and Pit bands are $25.00.
Lawrenceburg (IN) Speedway reopens Saturday April 10th featuring Non Wing Sprints,Modifieds and Pure Stocks. I still have yet to see a race at Lawrenceburg with the new track. It seems like everytime I think about going there is a race closer to home here in Indianapolis.I really need to get to Lawrenceburg as I keep hearing there facilities and new track are second to none.
Paragon (IN) Speedway does not have there 2010 Schedule complete but I do know there opening night is Saturday April 24th with Non Wing Sprints,Street Stocks,Bombers and Pure Stocks.
Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville,Indiana reopens Saturday April 10th with Non Wing Sprints,Modifieds,Super Stocks and Bombers.

Baer Field (IN) Speedway opens Saturday May 15th with Napa Late Models,Modifieds,Street Stocks,Mini Stocks,FWD and a new Fun Stock Division. The International Gold Cup 100 is a race that I am gonna finally try and make this year. I took a vacation day from work so as long as the weather is dry I should be at this event! I hope this schedule helps you out! Gotta go see you at the races!
