    • Dave Blaney will be back in his own car running the 98H sponsored by Mohawk Northeast. He will be focusing on Pennsylvania and Ohio while running some of the big shows. He is scaling back quite a bit but still plans on running 35-40 races.

          No further schedule announced because the team is likely to split up before they leave Florida hahahaha. Joking aside hopefully Destiny has finally found the right formula this time around.

          • Did not expect to see Terry go to Destiny. I’d imagine they’re gonna run Knoxville and probably some bigger events. I could be (and probably am) wrong but since destiny has scaled back the past two years and still hasn’t found as much as success as they’d like I imagine shooting for a Knoxville championship would be a prestigious and attainable goal.

            • Not sure if it has been mentioned yet but Brady Bacon back to the Hoffman 69 running full time on USAC Sprint tour. Seen him quite a bit the past couple of years so may not see the 99 as much around our area depending on the USAC schedule

              • He seemed to back off the winged stuff to focus more on the USAC stuff again. If I recall hearing an interview he was able to support family best running USAC since he’s one of top dogs there.

                • Bacon also stated in Flat Out magazine that he makes money from merchandise sales than he does racing.

                    I look at it that Destiny came to Terry. It is all Terry's stuff and crew and Destiny has been an associate sponsor on Terry's cars for many years so they just stepped up to primary backer. The Destiny owners have spent a ton on sprint car racing and hopefully Terry can give them some success they deserve.

                        • Nice to see for Foos. Chris Andrews posted a picture of him and DJ "swapping" wives at the bowling alley where they were behind each other's wives. Pretty funny joke I thought.

                                They did that the year prior as well I think? Then Dobmeier combined a bunch of teams and JimCo fielded it for Schurenberg last year. Schurenberg was always successful in his own equipment as well so hopefully he still has all of that to fall back on.
