Posted 17 Jun 2012 in Headlines

By Greg Soukup Despite over 4 inches of rain Thursday, Eagle Raceway’s track prep crew got the racing surface in shape for some fantastic action Saturday evening. Although there was rain all over the region, and several area race tracks cancelled their cards, the sun broke through and the high banks were tacky and fast. The preliminary events had no serious incidents. The Budweiser 360 Sprint Cars were the first feature event of the night. Tyler Drueke took advantage of his front row starting spot and held the lead after lap 1 in the #12 followed by ken Klabunde’s 28, the 82 of Jason Danley and John Klabunde in the 77.

Posted 10 Jun 2012 in Headlines

By Greg Soukup Night one of the Eagle Nationals, featuring the Lucas Oil ASCS National Sprint Car Series presented by MavTV, and promoted by TBJ Promotions, saw great racing throughout the night in all 3 classes.
