Title: WOW! Hoosier 100
Post by: Live Strong on August 02, 2009, 07:56:38 PM
This was truly a spectacular setting for a Kid's racing event!

The Newton Family, Hoosier, Lakeville, Indiana and USAC - You know how to host an event! The best quarter midget event I have attended period. 

A few things our family enjoyed:
- Hospitality / Professionalism of the event staff!
- USAC listening to its members and adjusting (track layout to racing procedures – Thank You)
- Shiny new tractors pulling trolley cars to shuttle spectators in-and-out
- Mr. Newton’s Smile!
- Awesome goodie bag for drivers (nice shirts)
- Event photo badge with custom picture and names
- Sparky the clown on his custom go-kart (the seat was a toilet!)
- Controlled all day practice the day before the event - FREE
- Opening ceremonies - just like the big leagues including balloon release and flyover
- Free dinner for drivers
- All you can eat Pancake Breakfast
- Raffles, silent auctions, door prizes, 50/50 drawings…
- Incredible calling of every race
- Welcome Signs all over town
- Balloon Artist
- Lots of concessions and vendors – lots!
- Safety crews on site – more than at a WoO event!
- Cool –off station for all
- KiDZoNe – Incredible safe, fenced and padded playground - huge!
- MANICURED FACILITY!!!! - like a country club!

Held annually this event would become renowned. If the Newton family, Hoosier, the town Lakeville and USAC host this event next year  - do not miss it!!

THANK YOU to all that were involved in this event! Well done, best of the year!

 I would also like to thank all associated for putting on this awesome event. I still cannot believe how nice it was. This park has to be the Trump Plaza of parks for kids. The event staff completly went out of their way to make sure everyone was taken care of, (even offering to have runners bring food back for the drivers that were busy running multiple classes!)

 This has so put the fun back into quarter midget racing for my family. Thanks again!!!!

  Thank you to everyone that helped to put on this event.  The park was magnificent.  The track challenged the handlers as much as the drivers.  I can't wait to see what's in store for next year.   -I sure am glad our club voted to switch to USAC.

I have to agree with all of the posts above....WOW

Again thanks to Hoosier, The Newton Family and the town of Lakeville IN  for everything. My family made so many new friends that we look forward to seeing again next year.

Lots of very good rumors about the event for 2010 are flying around within the QM community. Can't wait for 2010.

Hoosier tires are great for quarter midget racing. They are saving every QM family hundreds of dollars. Thanks to USAC and the USAC clubs for picking such a great tire and company to be involved with the USAC .25 program.

Awesome videos, thanks Justin!

The 100 lap Senior Honda race was excellent, one of the best .25 races I have seen!  The racing was intense and almost 90% of the laps were run under the green flag!  These young drivers continue to amaze me!

Thanks to all of our USAC drivers, their families, friend and crew!

Mis....Those are some awesome pics (except for 131). You do a great job and capture some very special moments from each of these events. They show just how much fun these races are.
