McKenna Haase First Female Sprint Car Driver Feature Win At Knoxville Raceway

McKenna Haase Portrait Photo Female Sprint Car Driver Knoxville RacewayKnoxville, IA, May 16, 2015 – McKenna Haase made history in the 305 class as she became the first female sprint car driver winner in a sprint car at the historic Knoxville Raceway. Wayne Johnson scored his 11th career win in the 360 class. Justin Henderson had no peer in driving the BDS Motorsports #1 to victory in 410 action at the Knoxville Raceway on Saturday. His seventh career win was worth $3,000.

Before a lap could get completed in the 15-lap 305 feature, Brad Bowman flipped in turn one. Fellow rookie Trevor Smith was also involved and the pair were uninjured, but done for the night. Another rookie, Chase Wanner, took the early lead, while McKenna Haase moved into second was negated when the caution flew for debris on the track.

On the restart, Wanner led Tanner Edwards, Haase, Chris Walraven and J Kinder back to green. Just two more laps were in the books before Kevin Hetrick spun. Kinder shot from sixth to third on the restart. On lap four, Ben Woods got into the wall, as the yellow flag flew again.

While Wanner was using the cushion, McKenna Haase found the inside groove to her liking, and she shot by the leader on lap six. Two more cautions would come out, one for Rob Weuve on lap seven, and one for Tanner Edwards on lap 11. Haase shot away from the field in clean air to record the first ever sprint car win by a female in Knoxville Raceway history. Wanner, Kinder,Stacey Alexander and Kade Higday followed her to the checkers. Hard-charger, Mitchell Alexander, Chris Walraven, Hetrick, Mike Mayberry and Devin Kline rounded out the top ten. Haase set quick time, while Stacey Alexander, Higday and Mitchell Alexander took the heat races.

“I don’t think it’s sank in yet,” said McKenna Haase, who will graduate from Carlisle High School on Sunday. “This was the night I told everyone I wanted to win, because I wanted to be on a podium two days in a row. This is a dream come true!”

Join us next Saturday night, May 23 for Pizza Hut Night! All three divisions of Knoxville Championship Cup Series sprint cars will be back in action. For more information on the Knoxville Raceway, visit www.KnoxvilleRaceway.com!

Eldora Speedway Website Hacked ISIS

Eldora Speedway Website Hacked ISIS Message Posted, Tony Stewart Responds

Eldora Speedway Website Hacked ISISThe famed Eldora Speedway website hacked with ISIS message posted. The dirt track is owned by NASCAR superstar Tony Stewart. The message was linked to the Islamic extremist group known as ISIS. The FBI was called in.

It’s highly likely this what not an ISIS attack. Their were a number of quite random attacks that took place today including the Moerlein Lager House, Montgomery Inn, MERS Goodwill and Elasticity being hacked by an unknown group.

The message was promptly removed by website administrators, which read ‘Hacked by Islamic State. We Are Everywhere :).

At 4:25 PM  the track had a new message posted on their website

America’s Favorite Track’s website is once again as safe as our $2 beer prices. Thank you to the Darke County Sheriff, FBI & GoDaddy for their quick response.

Tony Stewart spoke with USA Today Sports about the incident. The Eldora Speedway owner and three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart responded by saying, “If there’s anybody I’d want mad at me, I guess it would be them.”

INDIANAPOLIS, IND – Following a World of Outlaws (WoO) Sprint Car Series championship that included a career-best victory count of 26, Donny Schatz is focused on the number one as he enters the 2015 season. The six-time and reigning WoO champion from Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing (TSR) wants to earn Bad Boy Buggies® their first WoO title as primary sponsor of his iconic No. 15 sprint car. While the brand has won with Schatz as an associate partner, the 2015 season will mark their first season in a primary role on the No. 15 TSR entry.

TSR announced today a multi-year agreement with Bad Boy Buggies, a leader in off-road utility vehicles for hunting and outdoors, to become primary sponsor of its No. 15 team and Schatz, who will make his first laps in the Bad Boy Buggies car Feb. 10-15 during the 2015 DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida.

“Tony Stewart Racing is celebrating its 15th season and the goal from the beginning has been to surround ourselves with good people in order to chase victories and win championships,” said Tony Stewart, team owner and three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion. “We work really hard to deliver on the racetrack, but we work just as hard to understand the business of each of our sponsors so we can help them accomplish their goals, be it in racing or with their customers. Donny Schatz and his guys that work on the car (Rick Warner, Steve Swenson and Eric Prutzman) are the best in the business, and partnering with Bad Boy Buggies is an extremely potent combination.”

Bad Boy Buggies, which is backed by the resources and capabilities of E-Z-GO and its parent company, Textron Inc., is a Fortune 500 manufacturer known worldwide for its powerful brands and products such as Cessna aircraft, Bell helicopters and Greenlee tools, and is also known for introducing models and innovations that have revolutionized the way outdoor enthusiasts use UTVs. Bad Boy Buggies will begin its third season with TSR and first as primary sponsor with Schatz, winner of 49 WoO A-Feature races in the previous two seasons piloting the 1,200-pound, 900-horsepower TSR No. 15 machine.

“Bad Boy Buggies is thrilled to continue our partnership with Tony Stewart Racing and to be aligned with Donny Schatz this season,” said Eric Bondy, Vice President, Consumer Business for Bad Boy Buggies. “Being the best is what our companies strive for and that’s the same commitment we see in Donny and TSR. They embody the performance and attitude of Bad Boy Buggies. We look forward to being along for the ride as Donny continues his historic run with the Outlaws driving the Bad Boy Buggies-sponsored machine at venues all across the United States and in Canada.”

The quest for the 2015 WoO title will reunite TSR with renowned car owners Mike Curb and Cary Agajanian. For the past five seasons, TSR has been joined by Curb-Agajanian Racing in its USAC Silver Crown and Sprint Car entries. This season that relationship will continue in the WoO as the team carries the historic Curb-Agajanian name as a co-entrant.

“The passion and drive to defend the World of Outlaws championship have us all extremely excited about being able to continue our relationship with Tony Stewart Racing,” said Curb, Chairman of Curb Records. “Having won four USAC Silver Crown championships with drivers Levi Jones and Bobby East and multiple USAC Sprint Car championships with Jones and Bryan Clauson, we’re excited to be chasing a World of Outlaws title with a driver in Donny Schatz and a team that has been remarkable for a number of seasons. We are honored to partner with Tony Stewart as he continues building on his tremendous legacy in short track racing.”

Schatz, the third-winningest driver in WoO history with 172 career A-Feature triumphs, enters his 19th year of competition with the Outlaws and eighth season as driver of the TSR No. 15 machine. The Fargo, North Dakota, resident is looking to earn his second consecutive WoO title and seventh overall. He will be behind the wheel of the TSR No. 15 Bad Boy Buggies J&J for more than 90 nights of action from February through November.

“We’re all looking forward to the 2015 season, and having Bad Boy Buggies and Chevrolet Performance being a part of our team this year is exciting for all of us at Tony Stewart Racing,” Schatz said. “We all know it takes a complete package to make this work. In the past couple of seasons, we’ve built an excellent relationship with Mr. Bondy and everyone with the Bad Boy Buggies brand, and we’re looking forward to that relationship growing in the future. We’ve got a great team. I can’t thank Tony Stewart enough for surrounding me with such great people and incredible partners. I’m really looking forward to being in Florida and getting the season started.”
