Hello racefans!,I am sitting here enjoying the weather with the window open and the sun is out with clear blue skies and no humidity!It is going to be an awesome night for racing.

   Coming up august 16th is a regular show at Mt.   Lawn IN Speedway with Latemodels,Thundercars,and Hornets in action at the eggshaped tri-oval. Also on Saturday August 16th will be the HOSS Winged Sprints,Figure 8s and Street Stocks At Anderson (IN) Speedway .

    THE CRA Super Series Late Models invade Salem Speedway on Saturday August 16th along with Super Stocks and Street Stocks.Sometimes it  is really hard to pick and choose where to go  see  a race.! On Friday August 15th will be the Kenyon MIdgets,Thundercars,FWD amateur division and FWD figure 8 division at  Anderson Speedway .

     Jeff Ganus  won the Super Summer Sizzler Late Model Invitational race at New Paris Speedway Thursday night.Forty Two Late Models were on hand at the Indiana track.Curtis Holt won the 50 lap B main.Brian Ross finished in 2nd place behind the winner Jeff Ganus who took home a 20,000 prize!

      Saturday night August 23rd At Anderson Speedway will mark the return of the CRA Street Stocks,UMRA MIdgets,Supertrucks,and Figure 8s.This is a rescheduled rainout show.I am a real advocate and support weekly racing at my tracks.I used to travel to all the big Dirt Late  Model shows at Brownstown and other major dirt tracks like Eldora (OH) Speedway.Honestly with gas prices so  high i have decided to stay  closer to home but i miss going to Brownstown and Twin Cities in North Vernon Indiana.

       Scott Hantz won the rain shortened Anderson 400  after 150 laps.22 CRA Late Models started the race.Jason Thompson won the 100 lap feature portion of the anderson 400  in the CRA Street Stock division.30 cars started this race.jeff Lane is the new track record holder in the CRA Late Models at 11.922 at Anderson speedway.

       the Late Model  Triple Crown race at Plymouth (IN) Speedway was canceled.When this race is rescheduled i will let all you racefans know here in my column.

       I found out that  Darren Miller won the 50,000 to win North/South 100 at Florence (KY) Speedway with Scott Bloomquist finishing second.This is a very popular race in the Dirt Late Model world congrats to Darren Miller on his victory!

Thats all  i can think of for this week! Gotta go see  you at the Races
