By Greg Soukup The fans who decided to stay home and watch the Husker game missed out on a great night of racing at Eagle Raceway last night.  Still, a good crowd turned out to watch the first night of the inaugural Eagle 1/3 Mile IMCA Sprint Super Nationals presented by Pepsi. A total of 53 sprinters signed in to compete in 6 heat races, a C Feature, B Feature and the finale. They were accompanied by the IMCA Hobby Stocks and IMCA Modifieds who also ran their heats and A and B Features.

Posted 18 Aug 2013 in Headlines

By Greg Soukup Has Mother Nature been trying to make up for all of the lost racing at the beginning of the season with the fantastic weather the past few weeks? It doesn’t really matter what the reason is, because another fantastic day moved into a great night of racing.
