  • USAC CRA)As the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic
    continues, USAC Western Director Chris Kearns has announced that the
    races scheduled at Ventura Raceway on May 2nd have been cancelled.
    The AMSOIL USAC/CRA Sprint Cars and USAC Western States Midgets were
    featured on the action packed card along with the California
    Lightning Sprints. USAC and the track promoters are working on
    options to reschedule events once racing resumes. Everyone is
    encouraged to stay inside and follow the guidelines set by city,
    county, state, and federal government officials. For more updates,

  • World of Outlaws)Bobby Allen felt like he had
    an advantage over the rest of the field going into the 1986 Eldora
    Nationals. He had what many drivers struggle to find – confidence.
    However, despite his notion of being the driver to beat at the Aug.
    9, 1986 event, he still considered himself a dark horse. Or a “many
    more.” “They’d always make in the announcement, ‘This week you’ll
    see Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell, Doug Wolfgang and many more.’
    Well, I always called myself a “many more,” he said with a chuckle.

  • IRA Sprints)While today is National 410 day,
    and ironically today is also the day we were to open our 2020
    season, I thought we’d try and update everyone where IRA stands as
    of today. We have so many great things in place for 2020, and while
    this is my 27th year at the helm, I truly believe that with all the
    cool things we put in place over the winter, that this year was
    going to be our best, and hopefully it still will be. The COVID-19
    virus dictates everyone’s life right now, and our first thoughts are
    with everyone’s health and financial well being. We truly hope that
    everyone you love is healthy and safe. As for racing, we honestly
    don’t know when, or if, we’ll get the green light for 2020, but
    certainly we will have things in place and we’ll be prepared
    whenever that day comes. I make my living in the motorsports
    industry and converse with dozens of people within our industry on a
    daily basis. As of today, nobody I’ve spoken with truly knows what
    the 2020 season will look like. While April has been lost, we are
    prepared to race in May as scheduled if we’re allowed. We have plans
    in place to start in May, June, or anytime our government officials
    say it’s safe for us to do so. Based on IndyCar’s release of their
    revised schedule made earlier this week, now opening June 6th, (we
    think maybe Roger Penske knows more than us), so our 410 series has
    taken today’s originally scheduled race at Lee County and postponed
    it to Fri June 5th, the night before we’re at Fairbury on June 6th.
    We have rescheduled our April 18th Beaver Dam Raceway Wipperfirth
    Memorial to August 29th for the 410’s. We even have rescheduled
    dates in place for our “big” May races too, if need be. During this
    “Stay At Home” mandate here in IL, I made the mistake of installing
    a TV in my home office, so now I’m more confused than ever in
    regards to when we might get back to normality. Certainly we hope
    and believe more of the economy will be opened relatively soon,
    though we believe our health safety folks will watch for spikes in
    COVID-19 cases before they open up events like ours to the public.
    As one of the least “tech savy” people on the planet, I never
    imagined one of the highlights of my week would be tuning into FS1
    and watching a video game, but that is where we’re at today…. and
    I must say our Bill Balog’s pretty good at it. And thanks to Derek
    Crane for putting something together for our wingLESS guys to have
    fun with too. Even if parts of the country are opened before others,
    it remains unclear if teams who are based in “Stay At Home” states
    will be allowed to travel? Nobody knows…. It’s Easter weekend and
    reality is that many of us can’t spend it with those who we love
    because of health concerns. It’s the reality of today. Certainly we
    hope what we’re all doing has helped, and as a result more
    businesses throughout various parts of the country can be opened as
    soon as possible, as more need to (and deserve to) be opened. We
    sincerely hope you and your loved ones are safe, and that your
    businesses and jobs survive and those places currently closed, open
    up soon. Thanks to those whose jobs keep us healthy, fed, and safe.
    Your health and well being are most critical during these times, and
    absolutely your financial well being too. Our thoughts are with
    everyone this Easter weekend, and we can’t wait to see everybody as
    soon as we possibly are allowed. Until then, be healthy, safe, and
    God Bless. 4/10
