Bob East is one of the most successful crew chiefs and chassis builders in open wheel history. Since 1988, East Enterprises has poured out an incredible amount of championship and feature winning BEAST race cars. Bob’s unmatched mind for motorsports technology has been applied into Midgets, Sprints, and Silver Crown cars constructed for United States Auto Club competition. In the USAC Silver Crown Series alone, his BEAST cars have won the title every season since 1991. During his career so many top stars have driven his machines to victory including Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman, Mike Bliss, and Jason Leffler just to name a few. But no offense to those racers, his prize pupil was and is son Bobby.

Bobby East has shot through the racing ranks like a bullet. At 16, he was the USAC Mopar National Midget Series youngest ever feature winner in 2001. Just 3 seasons later, he added the honor of youngest ever series champion at 19. His strong open wheel resume includes wins on every USAC level and type of car with major triumphs coming in the Hut Hundred and Turkey Night Grand Prix events. East has competed on the biggest stages in ARCA, NASCAR Nationwide, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He has driven on those lofty levels for legendary names like Roush and the Wood Brothers. Bobby brings the USAC National Driving Championship point lead into the July 29th Mel Kenyon Classic. If he captures this title, he would score a ride in the Freedom 100 next year at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

James Spink has been involved in organizing a variety of events for young drivers to climb the motorsports ladder at the Bryant Heating and Cooling Indianapolis Speedrome®. Whether it was through his efforts as a Midwest touring series administrator for INEX Legends and Bandoleros or through his current role as USAC’s Development Racing Series Director, James has guided racers towards a future in the sport. Spink is the overseer of the weekly USAC/IUPUI Elite 8 Midget Series at the Speedrome. That program consists of D1 Mopar Midgets, Ford Focus Midgets, and Focus Young Guns. James will give us a recap on those classes as well as the upcoming USAC Mopar National Midget Series race on July 29th.
