By Greg Soukup

It took 3 weekends, but the 2018 season at Eagle Raceway finally kicked off Friday evening as night 1 of the Icebreaker Challenge, presented by Miller Lite and Auto Trans Matic ran under cloudy skies with cool temperatures.

But, the pits were packed, and the action was fast and furious on the high banks.

At the start of the fourth heat for the Runner Freight IMCA Modifieds, Jason Brinkman’s 93 went straight into the tire guarding the pit entrance […]

Interview with Eagle Raceway 2017 Modified Champion Shane Hiatt

By Greg Soukup 

33-year old Shane Hiatt from Rising City is your 2017 IMCA Modified Champion at Eagle Raceway.  

Although he did not start racing until 2006 when he strapped into a Hobby Stock, he was no stranger to dirt track racing. “Ever since I was a kid I wanted to drive a race car. When we were growing up my Dad helped Tom Svoboda, and that’s how I got hooked on it; going to Tom’s shop with Dad, watching […]

Interview with Eagle Raceway 2018 Sprint Car Champion Tyler Drueke

By Greg Soukup 

Having started out running a what he called a “yard kart” at a very young age, it is no big surprise that 24-year old Tyler Drueke from Eagle, Nebraska went on to win his second championship in a row in the Racesaver IMCA Sprints at Eagle Raceway last season. From that early beginning he moved into junior sprints at 11, the restrictor class go-karts and up to the outlaw mini-sprints. His first full-sized sprint experience was in a […]

Interview with SportMod Champion Trent Roth

By Greg Soukup 

When I originally tried to arrange my interview with the 2017 Eagle Raceway IMCA Sport Modified points champion, I was advised that he was going to be busy getting ready for a science competition where he was going to be a moderator. That may not sound like your typical dirt track racer’s down-time activity, but this young man isn’t typical. 

The 20-year old from Columbus, Nebraska began racing go-karts at the age of 7. He stayed in them […]
