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. An attempt was made to set the world’s record for people doing the Twist during intermission. Also during intermission some of the sprint car drivers passed their helmets through the pits and stands to gather funds for the family of Eagle regular Jeff Osborn who lost his life during a race Friday evening. 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...

Posted 29 Apr 2012 in Headlines

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.

By Greg Soukup The final night of the 2012 Icebreaker Challenge at “America’s Home Track” saw a capacity crowd, both in the stands and in the pits.

Sobbing, Noteboom and Gharst take home wins on Icebreaker Challenge Night 1

Posted 21 Apr 2012 in Headlines

By Greg Soukup The ice was definitely broken Friday night, but that didn’t mean that the temperatures were warm at Eagle Raceway. The 2012 Icebreaker Challenge ran under cloudy skies and with very cool temperatures that held the crowd size down. Those who braved the elements were treated to 12 heats, 3 A Features, 3 B Features and even a C Feature. The only serious incident in the preliminary events came in the third ASCS Sprint Car heat when Tige Jensen’s #71 made contact with the 21K of Lou Kennedy Jr. Both cars ended up flipping with Jensen ending up over the turn 4 wall. Both drivers walked away. The first A Feature was for the NAPA IMCA Sport...
