LOYET VS RAMEY

LOYET VS RAMEY

9/17/2014

FACT - (9-17-14 @ 6:45 am CST) - There appears to be tension building between the ASCS National Points leader, Brad Loyet and Texas driver Kevin Ramey. Last Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway, contact was made between Ramey and Loyet at some point in the feature and Brad spoke about it in his latest press release.

Brad stated that he was lapping one of the Print Place sponsored cars (Kevin Ramey) and after Brad put him a lap down, Ramey ran into the back of his car and flipped him off then pulled off of the track. Brad goes on to state that he has been told that Print Place has put a bounty out on Loyet to the Print Place driver that takes him out during a race. Loyet wants it to be public knowledge because he will be racing against the Print Place cars several more times this season and is in a race for the points championship...and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. is coming up fast.

Well this is where it gets interesting. Kevin Ramey posted on the Hoseheads.com message board, right under the press release that he is tired of having orange paint on his car. He said this rival has nothing to do with Print Place and will not be settled on the track. Kevin said that this will be delt with man to man, face to face long before Loyet returns to the Dallas area.

UPDATE #1 - FACT - (9-3-14 @ 2:00 pm CST) - Just moving this to the top. Another great incentive program put together by Alan DeHaai is the Mike Avila Racer Appreciation Fund. He has raised $900 to be given away to the first two non-qualifiers in each nights races. I think $300 will go to the first non-qualifier and $150 to the second non-qualifier..or something like that...it will depend on car count and stuff. More money going out to the competitors all of the time. 16 more days until the 3rd Annual Midwest Fall Brawl.

FACT - (7-18-14 @ 10:20 am CST) - Put The Casey's General Store Midwest Fall Brawl 3 on your schedule of races to attend. This race is a ASCS National Tour event that is held at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, NE on September 19-20. Thanks to Durst Motorplex and Hot Rod Paintless Dent Repair, the two day race will have a $50,000 bonus to the driver/team that can win both shows. Jack Dover did it last year and is tough to beat at that track so can it happen again.

On top of that Alan DeHaai has put together a lap sponsorship program. For $100 you can have your name on the list of lap sponsors. Your name will be announced several times throughout the night. Right now he has 51 of 55 laps sold and is looking to complete the list as soon as possible. That means there has been $4850 so far. There are a few laps spoken for that is offering up $50.00 so a few of you can pony up $50.00 to complete those laps. If you are interested in sponsoring a lap, contact me at ibracn1@yahoo.com and I'll put you in touch with Alan. A great program and a great event.

ESTES IS INTERESTED

9/11/2014

RUMOR - (9-11-14 @ 9:25 am CST) - The talk of the pits at last weekends ASCS Midwest races at Junction Motor Speedway and Eagle Raceway centered around Tommy Estes, Jr. The talk was that Tommy Estes, Jr. is trying to buy the NCRA sprint car series. The National Championship Racing Association is a 360 sprint car series based out of Kansas and has a long history there. The series held 14 races this season, most of which were in Wichita or Hutchinson, KS. The series made a couple of trips to Nebraska and one to Oklahoma.

The rumor is that Tommy Estes, Jr., formerly the ASCS National Tour competition director and now runs Dodge City Raceway Park) has investors to help purchase the organization.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out in this upcoming off season.

SWEET FINED

SWEET FINED

9/11/2014

FACT - (9-11-14 @ 9:15 am CST) - Reading through the latest press release from the World of Outlaws and see where Brad Sweet was fined and put on probation until December 31, 2014. The penalty is for violating the WoO rule 11.0-L. It doesn't explain what that rule is but the penalty stems from the incident that took place at Silver Dollar Speedway last weekend.

Paul McMahan was racing with Sweet for position and contact was made between the two. Sweet ended up flipping his SureTestMedical.com #49. Sweet got out of his car and went over to McMahan's car and punched him a couple of times while Paul was still strapped in his car and helmet on.

HAUD IS IN

HAUD IS IN

9/9/2014

RUMOR - (9-9-14 @ 2:20 pm CST) - While Sheldon Haudenschild's dad (Jac) got bad news today, I'm hearing that Sheldon has some good news. Rumor is Sheldon will be jumping back in the Bolz Farms #1B for the ASCS National Tour's Fall Brawl that is taking place at I-80 Speedwy in two weeks. Sheldon will be making an attempt to take home the $50,000 bonus money for winning both nights of the Fall Brawl.

Sheldon drove for the team at the 360 and 410 Knoxville Nationals but had nothing but bad luck. They had to use one of his own chassis to finish the 410 nationals, but ended up destroying that after contact with Brad Sweet. I hope his trip to I-80 Speedway will have better results.

NEW 410 SPRINT SERIES

NEW 410 SPRINT SERIES

9/9/2014

STRONG RUMOR - (9-9-14 @ 7:40 am CST) - While at Eagle Raceway on Sunday night, I got wind that there is a proposal out there for a new 410 Sprint Car series being developed for the midwest region. The series will be about 30-35 races that will be run in ND, SD, NE, KS, IA, MO and possibly other neighboring states. This is not to put any other series out of business or in competition of any other series but to give 410 teams more opportunities to race.

The series will have a very good points fund, paying the champion $75,000 to win. The drop off isn't that bad either with 10th place paying $15,000. If I'm not mistaken, the series plans to pay back to 15th spot. I'm trying to get more information about this series so if anyone has more info, please send it my way to ibracn1@yahoo.com .
