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 […]

Interview with 2017 Eagle Raceway Hobby Stock Champion Jeff Ware

By Greg Soukup 

When I spoke to your 2017 Eagle Raceway IMCA Hobby Stock Champion, Jeff Ware, I inquired as to what he was doing. The 25-year old from Columbus, Nebraska told me he was wrapping race cars over in Iowa. It seems that he is always working with, racing or thinking about race cars. Jeff won not only the points at Eagle, but another track and to top it off grabbed the Nebraska State Championship to boot.  

“I started racing Hobby […]
