Posted 16 Jun 2013 in Headlines

There were several special guests Saturday night at Eagle Raceway for Hall of Fame Night, sponsored by Bud Light. However, none of them were as welcome as the one that has been absent from the high banks; racing weather. After 3 consecutive rain-outs, the regular season resumed in front of a large crowd and eventually, sunny skies. The only incident in the preliminary action was when the #9 sprinter of Frank Sheridan suffered a fuel leak in the cockpit which caught fire. Sheridan steered his car into the infield and exited it quickly as the Fire & Rescue team extinguished the flames. Sheridan was taken to the hospital but release with burns on his right hand and both heels....
