Swarthout, Armstrong, Hiatt, Olsen & Boston win during Freedom Fest

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,...

Hall of Fame Night Features won by Eckhoff, Hansen, Ableson, Johnson and Boston

Posted 16 Jun 2013 in Headlines

There were several special guests Saturday night at Eagle Raceway for Hall of Fame Night, sponsored by Bud Light. However, none of them were as welcome as the one that has been absent from the high banks; racing weather. After 3 consecutive rain-outs, the regular season resumed in front of a large crowd and eventually, sunny skies. The only incident in the preliminary action was when the #9 sprinter of Frank Sheridan suffered a fuel leak in the cockpit which caught fire. Sheridan steered his car into the infield and exited it quickly as the Fire & Rescue team extinguished the flames. Sheridan was taken to the hospital but release with burns on his right hand and both heels....
