February 7th, the 5th race of the 6 race Buckeye Indoors Series was a great success. The weather was beautiful for families that travelled from as far away as Colorado and Delaware to compete in the countries most unique and unbiased racing venue.
As with the previous races, the Rookie turnout was spectacular with 24 Rookies taking part in the unique classroom sessions and then the track. Each of the Indoor events has had over 20 Rookies taking part. The Buckeye club has a nationwide reputation for training, coaching and encouraging kids to begin their racing career Indoors.
These Rookies will be well ahead of their competition as the various clubs start racing this Spring. The Buckeye Indoors is widely viewed as the best learning experience anywhere in the country.
According to Chad Wise, from Angola, Indiana:
“The Buckeye Indoors is ABSOLUTELY the best place to learn how to successfully pass in a race. The unique track configuration makes the kids look at things differently but in a way that is very helpful when returning to traditional racetracks. It is always very obvious who raced Indoors and who took the Winter off.”
The highlight of this event was the giveaway of a new generator provided by Briggs and Stratton. The winner, by random drawing, was Chase Hyland from Cherry Hills, Colorado. His name was drawn from his Light World Formula sign-in card.
The Buckeye club is excited to announce another giveaway for the February 21st race. This giveaway is a fully race prepared Animal engine from Baker Racing Engines, the preeminent engine builder for Quarter Midgets. All entrants will be eligible for this random drawing.
