Posted 13 May 2012 in Headlines

By Greg Soukup Another large crowd was on hand Saturday night for Diva Dash, Super Mom’s Tribute at Eagle Raceway Saturday night. The weather was beautiful and the racing was great in all classes.

As is to be expected, the extended racing family responded wonderfully, contributing a total of $3154.66. Thanks go out to each and every person who helped out in this worthy cause. The...

By Greg Soukup Sunny skies and spring-like temperatures greeted the fans who came to Super Mania Night #1 presented by the Nebraska Lottery at Eagle Raceway as the 2012 season began. But as the clouds rolled in and the wind picked up, the temperatures turned downright chilly. But the hardy folks in the stands saw great racing from the 180+ cars who signed into the pits. There were 2 minor incidents in the preliminary events that resulted in no significant injuries. By the time the features rolled around, the track turned dry-slick but still had 2 lines.
