ANGOLA MOTOR SPEEDWAY 2007 DRIVERS MEETING VERY UPBEAT

By Kevin Allgire

2/10/07 - Rapid Raceway in Angola,IN. again hosted the Angola Motor Speedway drivers meeting to a packed house as Businessman and racer Craig Everage, who is leasing the speedway for 2007 with the option to buy talked to racers about what to expect for this season of racing. The conversation was very upbeat with Everage saying that Safety is his biggest concern. He is going to advertise more and the gates will open an hour later, now at 3pm and racing will get started at 7:30pm. All cars except the mini stocks and front wheel drive cars will run on Hoosier 970 tires. One Question by a racer, "Are the tires going to be stamped"? and Everage answered,"No they are not going to be stamped, that way you can buy them from anywhere that sells Hoosier 970 tires and racers from other tracks can race at Angola Speedway". And That means the Street Stock guys will be able to buy used tires from the two higher divisions and they will be able to save money, which is another subject that Everage talked about, saving the racers money, and he said," If you have any suggestions please tell me". Alot of the track employee's will return for 2007. Everage also commented that he was trying to get former Track Promoter Wes Parrish to return as well. One safety issue that was brought to light was that no children under 12-years old will be allowed in the pits for obvious reasons such as cars possibly falling off a jack and a child getting trapped underneath or getting hit by cars coming off the track back to the pit area.
Another issue was discussed, Fighting, will be 0 tolerance as the rule, You Will Be Barred! There will be actual police as security on the grounds. The new Front Wheel drive division will race during intermission and laps will be determined by the amount of cars that show up in that class on each night.

Many new things are in the works at this time and Craig Everage said," That he's in this for the racers and he wants Angola Motor Speedway to be able to pack the stands every race night no matter what it takes"!.

Everage has a fantastic schedule for 2007. You can get more info at www.angolaspeedway.net

INDIANA SPEEDWAY GETS NEW ENERGY

By Kevin Allgire

January 25, 2007 - In 2007 there will be a glow of energy over Angola Motor Speedway located up in the Northeast corner of Indiana. This very fine facility belonging to Richard Poe has been leased to Craig Everage a very engergenic Angola, IN. businessman . Craig has leased the track for one year with the option to buy the facility. Everage brings the knowledge of of racing to the plate by being a Super Late Model racer himself. He owns Everage Auto Sales located in Angola. Heís a Praire Heights School Graduate. He will also be the Track Promoter.

Angola Motor Speedway was closed down for the whole 2004 season for reconstruction which saw the whole grandstands, control tower and consession area being replaced. Everage said ď I want to make this place Rock again in 2007Ē, and thatís exactly what heís doing with this seasonís schedule which will see a band called the Freak Brothers entertaining on July 7th along with a full night of racing. But thatís not where it ends! In 2006 the Super Late Model division was dropped from the schedule and some say it hurt the attendance at the track. Some of the big names such as, Jack Landis, Mike Kugler, Jasper Case, and Stan Perry that had a big fan base were no longer racing. Super Late Model legend Fred Elkins did come back in a template bodied Limited Late Model.

In 2007 the Super Late Model Division is back and the Limited Late Modelís are gone. Was this a good dicision? Only time will tell. Other divisions racing will be the Modifieds, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks and a new Front Wheel Drive class.

Also on the schedule will be some big money races for the Super Late Models paying $2000 to win with a Gaylord Parr Memorial race that will pay $5000 to the lucky winner. There will be some touring series that will make a stop at the speedway as well which include; The Bollhoff Superpro Series, The CRA Late Models, The Auto Value Bumper to Bumper Winged Sprints, The OíReilly USA Modified Series,

The MCR Dwarf Series, The NAMRA Formula Indy Series, The Short Track Truck Series and the HOSS Winged Sprint Cars.

And if itís something different that you want to see there will be a ďNight Of DestructionĒ with a Demolition Derby, a Mini Stock Enduro, School Bus Races, Motorcycle Wheelie Contest, Burn Out Contest, and a Truck VS Truck pull.

There will even be a night where go karts will be racing on the 3/8th mile high bank speedway and there will be a Monster Truck also making an appearance. The first Official night of racing will be April 28th.

There will be a race car show and open practice the Saturday before on April 21st. There will be some $1 BEER & $1 HOTDOG nights too. General Admission will only be $10 and $25 to get into the pits to spend the whole day with your favorite driver and to see what takes place behind the scenes. On a regular show night the gates will open at 3pm and racing will start at 7:30pm. Craig has so many things scheduled for 2007 thatís itís hard to list everything, so go to www.angolaspeedway.net to see more of the schedule and to keep updated on new things happening all season long.
