  • Silly Season 2018 Begins

    September 20th Broc Martin announced that he and the Seeling 97 are splitting ways. He’ll return to his family 83M car for 2019. The plus for local race fans- 1 more car on the track next year.

    Also, PPM teased last week that he’ll be running full time in a major series next year on last weeks buckeye speed zone and that an announcement will be coming in down the line.

    I saw the theory about one more car back on the track. However wasn't Helms in the 97 within the last 2 weeks? Regardless if put someone in that ride that already has a car then it will all even out. I'm not trying to sound negative that's just the thought that came to mind.

      Will be interesting to see what happens in the bigger series and might trickle down to other teams as well and possibly locally too.

        Buddy Kofoid to run in the Ed Neumeister 11N full time next season. We all know how the last California kid turned out who came to Midwest with linders on the wrenches. If Gio didn’t happen to come at the same time this would be the “prodigal son” so to speak from Cali right now. Interested to see if he continues to perform at as high as a level as he did in his few Ohio starts this season.

          Also, for those who haven't heard Tracy Hines is retiring. The montpelier race last Saturday was his final sprint car start.

              Chad Kemenah in the 1881 Racing #81 that Lee Jacobs usually is in tonight with the outlaws at Eldora.

              EDIT: Saw on twitter Lee Jacobs is in Cincy with his son for an experimental study. His son has Fragile X syndrome. So no drama here, family always comes first.

                Caleb Helms was in the yellow 97 for the #LastCallForThemAll at Eldora tonight. Believe he was supposed to drive that car at Kokomo as well.

                Kemenah HAS to find a ride. He can still get it done and is an asset to the All Stars. I just dont see an opening when looking at this years crop of All Stars.

                Macedo is all but out of the 3G and as of now it appears that car may not return next year. The Sesame Sticks 98 I believe has been idle since Carl Bowser vacated it over the summer. Reutzel isn't goong anywhere, I think McMahan and Dave Blaney are probably returning to those rides, though Pete Grove's 70 is notorious for having a revolving door. Dave Jessup seems satisfied with Cale Conley in the 7k and I personally think Cale is in the discussion for most improved 410 driver.

                The HoJo of Lima car had always been an interesting case to me. Always seemed to me that they had sponsors to run a more full time schedule.

                  Well, two drivers were announced today, that are losing their current ride. Stewart out of the 2 car and into the 5 car. Gravel out of the 5 car, and have heard going to the 41 car, but that is rumor so far.

                    Have heard Gravel going the Nascar route & McFadden to the 41. However last week at Eldora some people were talking that PPM might be going into that car now

                    The only thing we are waiting for now as far as the Larson 2 car is the press release making it official that Macedo will be driving it next year

                      I heard Gravel is going asphalt racing so who knows

                        If I was KLR or any other WoO team I would go after Gio Scelzi right now before someone else snags him up especially a Nascar type of team. He has been fast at just about every track he has been at this year and the most part have been new tracks for him along with it didn't matter if WoO, All-Stars, or regular type of shows.

                          I think Gio is still in high school which would make the WoO schedule a stretch for him to make. Teams like KLR are interested in full time do this for a living now and I if Gio continues the success he had, I don't see him being available too much longer after graduation. I can see him racing trucks or Xfinity or whatever they will be calling it at age 19 or 20. Has the talent to compete, just probably not able to make it work schedule wise.

                          Macedo is plenty capable though. Maybe not a title contender but will be competitive

                            Gio is homeschooled if I recall correctly from an open red interview.

                              Heard Broc Martin left the 97 car and will be in his own team.
                              Who is going to the 97?

                              Didnt Farmer own a car that Rob Chaney drove? Is that still around?

                              What happened to the Janet Holbrook car? I remember it as a really good ride.
