Clark Family Fundraiser Saturday March 8th 1-6PM

By: Jim
March 4, 2014

Piper Clark races on Wednesdays in our Kids racing Program. She has done this pretty consistently for the past few years. This kid opens the door and repeats my name loudly several times to announce her arrival before she even turns the corner where I can see her from behind the counter “JIM JIM JIM”. It always makes me smile when she does this. I’d like to think I am the reason she keeps coming back every week but the reality is she comes with her Grandpa Fred, and to see her best friend Ashlynn Roed (whom she met at the track). In addition to Fred bringing Piper to the kids races, Fred is one of our Expert racers in our Friday Stock Car Program.

Pipers Father, Beau Clark was diagnosed with brain cancer a few years ago, he and his family have fought, in the bravest possible way this affliction. Beau went into remission but the cancer has returned. Beau is now under hospice care at home and the prognosis is not good.

Beau and his wife Melissa are young and with a young family. They struggle with the financial burdens due to Beau’s cancer. This is where Diane and her Daughter Lauren McCuistion stepped up and planned this Fundraiser to help the Clark Family. She has enlisted many people to help with this task and over $4,000 has been raised to go to support the needs of this family. I am personally grateful for everyone who has come forward with raffle prizes and support for this event and family.

So please join us this Saturday March 8th from 1-6PM for raffles, a bake sale and other fun events to help this family in their time of need.

For those who are unable to attend the fundraiser the opportunity to help still exists. There is an online fundraiser at Giving Forward to support the Clark Family. It can be found here

Winter 2013 Drag Points Series Results

By: Jim

We have finished off another successful drag racing points series last Tuesday.

Dave Collins won more races in our Bracket Class and I believe anyone has in any prior. This means he easily won the overall by a huge margin.


Larry Altmayer was the winner in both the Pro Bracket Class and the .990 Index class this season.


Congratulations to you two racers, and thanks also to the rest of the drag racers for your participation.

Kids Team Race Results

By: Jim
December 5, 2013

Tonight we tried something a little different, a Team Race with each Kid pairing with a parent, grandparent or the last available adult in the building (Me).


The Teams were:
Piper Clark/Fred Klinger
Mike Walton/Chase Walton
Mark Bartel/Kristian Bartel
Alex Bartel/Jim Radford

As is usually the case the Kids made up for the lack of driving skills by the adults, with the exception of Fred Klinger who drove a nice clean race. In the end Team Alex/Jim took the win with 217 Laps after spending most of the race at the back of the pack, Team Chase/Mike took second with 213 laps, Team Kristian/Mark with 211 Laps, and Team Piper/Fred with 210 Laps. Fast lap was set by Fred Klinger on Purple lane with a 5.439 lap time. Thanks to everyone for a fun night racing with the Kids.

November 20, 2013

We have spent considerable time and effort to consolidate our drag racing rules and to simplify and clarify many of the rules. In the past our rules have been scattered throughout our website and were conflicting in some instances. This rulebook includes our general rules and also class specific rules for our larger events. As always feedback is encouraged!
