Midwest Racing Roundup By Tom Botos   7-19-10  .
It was a great racing weekend other than a rain delay at Anderson Speedway. A great enthusiastic crowd came out to see the 61st running of the National Crown Figure 8 Race and the 1st appearance of the Motion Motors Late Models in a 50 lap Feature! Congratulations to Curtis Chapman for winning the 2001 and 2010 National Crown races with Rob allman and Rod Phipps finishing 2nd and 3rd.
Congratulations to Scott Neal for winning the Motion Motors late model feature after a good battle with Terry Cater,Josh Poore and Scott Knepley early on in the race. I was very happy to see such a fun lively crowd at Anderson they really seemed to be into the races!
Jason Atkinson won a rain shotrened 26 lap feature for CRA Street Stocks over Rich Boyer,Rick Erwin,Calvin Parham and Brian Hopkins. I really enjoyed talking with Rob Allman and Rich Boyer at Anderson Saturday Night, Rob Allman cut his finger down to the bone. I hope Rob is ok and can race very soon! Ronnie Rose raced in CRA Street Stocks and the buzzed over toi Anderson Speedway to race in the National Crown Figure 8 only to wreck in turn 1 with Jason Pitts. I hate to see guys total there cars in the figure 8 I hope both cars can be repaired for the next figure 8 event at Anderson Speedway.
Sunday I went to Winchester Speedway for some AWESOME racing in the CRA Sportsman,USA Modifieds and CRA Street Stocks. Bud Perry Passed Mike Carroll and Chad Poole coming from 8th place to win the O Reilly USA Modified 50 lap feature. This was a very close finished and probably the best Modified race I have ever seen at Winchester Speedway! The CRA Sportsman feature s awesome too as Rick Rinehart won after battling with Al Cook Jr. whose car broke while leading but before all that it was a spirited battle with Brandon Mefford,Charlie Hanna  and Jason Atkinson all battling up front jockeying for position trying to pass high and low! If you didnt come to Winchester because of rain you missed one whale of a show! Congrats to Justin Brown winning the CRA Compact Feature  while the leader Cary Abrell was blackf flagged for running  under his qualifying time. Tough break for Cary Abrell.
Coming this Saturday July 24th will be a USSA  Program with Midgets and Thunder Roadsters at Anderson Speedway. The RedBud 300 with Kyle Busch and the stars and cars of the CRA Super Series invade Anderson Speedway for a 300 lap slugfest off the high banks on Monday July 26th! Take a blanket and get your seat early as racing action that Monday begins at 7:30 pm.
Mt Lawn Speedway hosts the UMRA TQ Midgets plus Late Models,Thundercars and Hornets. Added to this program will be double rainout features from last week for Thundercars and Hornets! This should be a good show with plenty of racing action to tickle your fancy as a race fan.
Sunday July 25th Kokomo Speedway hosts Non Wing Sprints,UMP Modifieds,Street Stocks and Thundercars.  I hear UMP Modified races have been really good this season at Kokomo Speedway. I may go this race if I get the chance!
