Posted 14 Jul 2013 in Headlines

By Greg Soukup It wasn’t a full moon Saturday night as Sam’s Club presented Nostalgic Night at Eagle Raceway, but it was a strange night nonetheless. In the hot laps for the Budweiser IMCA Racesaver Sprints Frank Sheridan’s car suffered a fuel leak and caught fire. After the fire was extinguished, and it was being pushed back to his pit, the fire reignited. In the first heat race for the Sam’s Club IMCA Sport Compacts the 82B of Kurt Beckstrom ran headlong into the wall between turns 1 & 2. Kurt had to be extracted from the car after suffering a severe ankle injury. In the third heat for the class Amanda Rhiley suffered a broken forearm after spinning...

Posted 30 Jun 2013 in Headlines

By Greg Soukup Saturday’s Freedom Fest, presented by Sam’s Club & Kaplan University saw a late-arriving crowd that turned out to be the best one of the year so far at Eagle Raceway. Couple that with nearly perfect weather and a great fireworks show following the racing action and hardly anyone could ask for more. Dwight Carter’s 4u made contact with the 13 of Eric Reichwaldt in the third Budweiser IMCA Racesaver Sprint heat causing him to turn directly into the fourth turn wall. Carter walked away from the incident but his evening of racing was over. The NAPA IMCA Sport Modified A Feature had Dustin Thayer’s 10T leading the first lap followed by the 7V of Adam Vrbka,...
