Haudenschild Inducted into National Sprint Car Hall of Fame

May 31, 2009


Knoxville, IA  May 31, 2009 For over 35 years, Jac Haudenschild has been thrilling fans from coast-to-coast with his always exciting driving style, and for once he was the one receiving a thrill, as he was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Iowa on Saturday.

While Haudenschild was competing at I-96 Speedway in Michigan with the World of Outlaws on Saturday, finishing a very solid sixth, his long time friend and 2007 Hall of Fame Inductee Kenny Jacobs accepted the honor for the fellow Ohioan.

It means a lot to get in the Hall of Fame, said a proud Haudenschild.  I’m glad to be in there. I’m sorry we couldn’t get out there for the induction. It’s a great honor, that’s for sure. Listen Now

RLR/Andersen Racing’s Romancini Leads Every Lap at Milwaukee Sunday

May 31, 2009


WEST ALLIS, Wis., May 31 – Polesitter Mario Romancini led all 100 laps of
the Husar’s House of Fine Diamonds 100 Sunday at the Milwaukee Mile to give
RLR/Andersen Racing its second Firestone Indy Lights victory ever.

The 21-year-old driver from Sao Paulo, Brazil impressed everyone with his
come-from-behind podium finish at the Freedom 100 at the Indianapolis Motor
Speedway nine days ago. This time the rookie made the crowd on hand in
Milwaukee take notice of his total domination of the event, even though he never
turned a lap here before Saturday morning’s first practice session and this
was only his third oval-track race ever.

Romancini’s No. 5, which is sponsored by Andersen Racing, Revita Recycling,
Win Brazil Marketing, Allied Interior Products and Lafarge North America,
had a 1.0907-second advantage over a former RLR/Andersen Racing driver, J.R.
Hildebrand, when the checkered waved after 100 laps of competition on the
tight, 1.015-mile oval.

Romancini also set the fastest lap of the race when his lap 13 took 25.3397
seconds for an average speed of 144.201 miles per hour. Listen Now

16 Year Old Brett Moffitt Wins Camping World East Race.. RCR’s Sean Caisse 7th

May 31, 2009


SOUTH BOSTON, Va. – Brett Moffitt already broke one of Joey Logano’s NASCAR Camping World Series records. It didn’t take him long to take care of another.

Moffitt became the youngest winner in NASCAR Camping World Series history Saturday night with his win in the South Boston 150 at South Boston (Va.) Speedway. His Andy Santerre Motorsports’ No. 44 Chevrolet led 81 laps – including the last 67 – and outpaced a pair of fellow teenagers in runner-up Ryan Gifford and third-place Ryan Truex.

Moffitt doesn’t turn 17 until August 7. Joey Logano, now driving the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, was 1 month, 5 days of turning 17 when he scored his first win in the NASCAR Camping World Series West, and he set the NASCAR Camping World Series East mark 11 days later with his win at Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway. In the 2009 NASCAR Camping World Series East opener, Moffitt broke Logano’s record as the series’ youngest Coors Light Pole Award winner.  Results Below Listen Now

Meyers Masters I-96: Wins Third Race of 2009

May 31, 2009


Lake Odessa, MI  May 30, 2009 Jason Meyers had been close to winning in each of his last two visits to I-96 Speedway in Michigan leading into Saturday night’s event. He also had been close to winning a couple times over the last week in World of Outlaws action. After picking up his second win of the season last month, the California native returned to Victory Lane on Saturday night at the half-mile, earning his second win in state of Michigan and the 28th of his career with the World of Outlaws.

Meyers started on the pole in the 30-lap contest and withstood a number of challenges from Kraig Kinser throughout the race to pick up the $10,000 check.

I can’t thank everyone enough, especially everyone back home, said Meyers. My wife and my little girl for putting up with me lately. The whole crew did a fantastic job. These guys built a new race car this week and are just working hard every single day to be able to come out and put on a show for these fans. They gave me an awesome hot rod here tonight. I’m just glad to get this win for them. Listen Now

Castroneves crashes during Milwaukee qualifying

May 31, 2009


WEST ALLIS, Wis. — This was not what Helio Castroneves had in mind for the week after the biggest victory of his career.
Castroneves spent the past few days celebrating his third Indianapolis 500 win and talking about his next challenge — hanging onto the momentum from Indy and going after his first IndyCar Series championship.

The concrete wall in turn two at the Milwaukee Mile took the edge off the celebration and made things a little more difficult for the Penske Racing driver, who hit the barrier during qualifying for Sunday’s A.J. Foyt 225 and will have to start last on the 20-car grid.

“We tried something different out there in qualifying from what we ran in practice,” Castroneves said. “I just went for it and the car wiggled a little bit. I thought I saved it but, unfortunately, I ended up brushing the wall and couldn’t qualify.” Listen Now
