Night 2 (Saturday Portion) of Nationals Winner is Steven Shebester

by Greg Soukup

Just as night 2 of the 2018 Racesaver Sprint Nationals began, that fictional deity Mother Nature came calling again. Evidently, since she couldn’t wipe out night one, she made a stronger try. After the third heat started the rains came; and they stayed! All together Saturday the track received 5 inches of liquid sunshine, and then another 2 inches on Sunday morning!!

Again, how many dirt tracks would have just packed it in and gone to the last […]

A half-hour downpour followed by drizzle and mist would have caused lots of dirt tracks to cancel, but Eagle Raceway isn’t most tracks and the Racesaver Sprint Nationals is just any race!! The track prep crew worked overtime to bring the track […]

By Greg Soukup

Temperatures in the mid-90’s and high humidity led the crowd for the Fold ‘Em Finale, presented by the Nebraska Lottery to arrive late. But with 2 of the season-long points championships in doubt and the other 3 having fierce competition for moving up a spot or 2, the action was furious throughout the night.

Also, with the Racesaver IMCA Sprint Nationals less than a week away, there were several visitors from around the country who showed up to […]
