    This is the thread in which i will most likely post news and schedules for the surrounding area race tracks of CJ Speedway in Columbus Junction IA, 34 Raceway in Burlington IA, West Liberty Raceway in West Liberty IA, and possible other speedways such as Knoxville Raceway, Davenport Speedway, and Boone Raceway. Other tracks will be posted in their own posts if they are being discussed.

    The World of Outlaws has traveled around southeast iowa for some time now. They've ventured to 34 raceway where Brad Sweet had a horrible crash in turn 3. Later they moved to West Liberty Raceway where Shane Stewart would dominate the race after being saved by a caution before the first lap was complete. They now head more up north to Farley Iowa in the top of the nose. While I wont make the 2 hour drive to go see the race, its still a race that I deeply enjoy watching. Hopefully the Nationals will be enough 410 action for me this season.

    I never hear anything about those tracks, just Iowa Speedway since it's 20 miles south of me.

    Other news regarding other tracks. West Liberty is rumored to not be running this year as there is no schedule or any track section on the promoters website.

    Last night 34 raceway kicked off the season with the 360 Sprint car series Sprint Invaders as well as UMP Crate Late Models. it was also extremely cold and I wish i had worn more than a fleece and sweatpants...

    btw here's some pictures from last night's festivus.

    btw it was cold enough that you could see the air off of the right rear tires on the sprint cars...

    scratch that for the race tonight. for some reason they decided to cancel so no pics until either the Slocum 50, or the MLRA at Davenport speedway running the half mile.

    MLRA had two nights of great racing in davenport and 34 Raceway. the Davenport race was acompanied by two classes of modifieds and a small group of street stocks. Chris Simpson would pick up the race win over Brian Shirley after a few lucky breaks saved him.

    the Slocum 50 would provide for a lot of excellent racing as that was acompanied by 305 sprint cars and IMCA Stock Cars. Brayden Gaylord picked up the 305 sprint car win after a few original restarts. he was able to hold off Jerrod Schneiderman after he pulled into the pits and Tanner Gebhardt for the win. David Brandies would also hold off 4 hungry stock car drivers to win his class.

    The Slocum would start off with Chris Simpson taking the lead over his brother chad. However Shannon Babb would soon find speed and take over the lead. he would be able to hold off the charging simpson brothers for his first win in the Slocum 50.
