Richards Wins Nostalgic Night at Eagle

By Greg Soukup

Eagle, NE — (July 13, 2013) — It wasn’t a full moon Saturday night as Sam’s Club presented Nostalgic Night at Eagle Raceway, but it was a strange night nonetheless.

In the hot laps for the Budweiser IMCA Racesaver Sprints Frank Sheridan’s car suffered a fuel leak and caught fire. After the fire was extinguished, and it was being pushed back to his pit, the fire reignited.


Shayle Bade’s 03 led the first circuit of the race as the Budweiser IMCA Racesaver Sprints took to the high banks. She had Doug Roth’s 24R, the 52 of Nick Bryan and Terry Richards in the 18 on her rear push bar however. Richards and Bryan both passed Roth on lap 3. Chase Weiler spun in turn 2 on lap 7 for the race’s only caution. Mike Boston passed Roth on the restart to put the 51 in fourth. Boston also got past Bryan the next time around and Gregg Bolte got the 00 into fourth. Richards took the lead with just 4 laps left and Boston took over second the next time around. Bade passed Boston back with just 2 to go to snag second. Richards concluded the strange evening by spinning across the finish line to take home the win. It was Richards, Bade, Boston and Roth the top 4.

This was Terry’s first ‘Official’ win in a 305 sprint. “I actually finished first in a 305 race at another track back in 1998. But, they said I jumped the start and moved me back 4 spots after the green, white, checkered race. So, this is my first actual win in a sprint” he stated. He continued by saying “I love this class, and I’m so glad to be a part of the rookie class here at Eagle. My last modified cost a LOT more money, and these cars are faster”. He went on to say “I love the track every night there’s a high line around the top. I got lucky because I spotted the rubber just below the cushion, or I don’t think I’d ever have been able to pass Shayle. His last thought was “I need to thank Jarid for all of his help and the others who help out each week”. Terry’s sponsors are JR’s Tool Service and JDJ Structural Group.
