T.J.’s Afternoon Notebook: Doty Classic comes full circle

November 3, 2015

For Attica Raceway Park promoter John Bores and General Manager Rex LeJeune today’s announcement of the Brad Doty Classic returning to Attica in 2016 is having a whirlwind of events coming full circle. Bores and LeJeune took over at Attica right after the announcement that the Doty Classic was moving to Limaland Motorsports Park in the midst of some uncertainty over the future at the 1/3-mile oval in the sleepy town of Attica, Ohio. Over the past 10 years of hard work and paying attention to minute details the return of the Doty Classic is a product of their effort. [...]

TJ’s Take: Time to kick back and enjoy the popcorn…

October 19, 2015

I’ve had a lot of questions about my opinion on Sprints on Dirt, the new Great Lakes Super Sprints series, and Michigan Sprint Car Racing overall. The announcement of Barry Marlow’s series has not really changed my opinions at all. [...]

Hammers leading the revival of Millstream Speedway

August 19, 2015

This Sunday UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions will visit Millstream Speedway in Findlay, Ohio for the second time this season. 20 years ago an All Star visit to Millstream would be a normal thing, but for most of the past 20 years except for some short stints of operation Millstream has remained devoid of racing action.

July 21, 2015

Early Sunday morning Shane Stewart was enjoying the spoils of winning the 32nd Annual Kings Royal, having a top flight ride with Larson/Marks racing. Stewart is having a good season with the World of Outlaws that has put him second in the point standings to Donny Schatz. While Stewart is on top right now it hasn’t always been that way. [...]

TJ’s Prediction: Royal is Schatz’s to Lose…

July 17, 2015

Donny Schatz is having a season for the ages. Not since the days of the prime of Steve Kinser and Doug Wolfgang has a driver rolled through the sprint car world like Schatz has this season. Internationally Schatz has 26 victories this season with 20 of them coming in World of Outlaws competition. To win nearly half of the races in what is the toughest sprint car series in the World is nothing short of remarkable. [...]
