Hello race fans and welcome to The Pit Stop.
R-A-I-N is a four-letter word and it is a bad word around the race track, especially this year.
But not all four-letter words are bad. F-R-E-E is a four-letter word and most of the time it is a good four-letter word.
And F-R-E-E is exactly what race fans will be charged for grandstand admission to The Southern Iowa Speedway tomorrow night.
It is Fan Appreciation Night at Osky tomorrow night and everyone headed to the grandstand will be saving some money. The night is being made possible by several businesses and the “Real” Ronald McDonald will be in attendance. Slideways Karting Center out of Knoxville will have some of their carts at the track to drive.
Mother nature has not been kind to Oskaloosa as they have had to cancel the last two Wednesday nights of racing due to too much liquid sunshine. Hopefully, they will be able to get back on track with racing tomorrow night.
The Eldon Raceway has its first races of 2013 scheduled for Thursday night during the Wapello County Fair. The 4-Cylinders, Hobby Stocks, Stock Cars, B-Modifieds and Late Models will take to the track for their 2013 lid-lifter.
Hot laps are scheduled at 6:30 with racing action scheduled for a 7 p.m. starting time. The Wapello County Fair will be wrapped up Sunday evening with the demolition derby. This is always a very popular event with the grandstand sure to be filled.
Last week, I wrote about Eddyville Raceway Park and the three days of racing action they had scheduled, but I had a mental lapse and got a week ahead of myself. This weekend is when they are having three days of action at the eighth-mile drag strip.
