        Nope the Amish bought Lakeville.
        There is nothing left there. They brought in a bulldozer and leveled the place.
        Grew up there and it is all gone.

              Outside of the Ohio region, but interesting news nonetheless. Chad Boespflug lands a full time wing ride. Will compete at Knoxville and other shows in that area including Jackson, MN.

                  Wild move to me. Interested to see where McCarl lands. He did pretty well in that car.

                    Sprintcar unlimited did an article about McKenna Hasse moving her shop to Indianapolis to do more traveling. Mentioned some 410 races as well so maybe we will see her at some All Star shows or maybe even speedweek.

                    Hope she is able to have some success. If you haven't before look up the video that fox did earlier this year about how she has helped kids get into racing. Talked to her and her dad at Knoxville this year and she is a great human being.

                      Speed sport confirming JJR 41 will return in 2020. Philip Dietz still crew chief. Driver still TBA until Gravel confirms if he can get a Nascar ride

                        Bobbi Johnson also confirms JJR's 2020 plans. David Gravel will return as driver while also pursuing some Nascar Truck races. I noticed that she mentioned that JJR will be fulltime on the WoO but not specifically that Gravel would be. IDK, maybe I'm just being nitpicky with wording. Regardless, the 41 will be back next season.

                          41 will be full time and will probably use a substitute driver when Gravel can't make the race. I believe end of year purse is based on owner points so as long as the sub driver can perform, they could still maintain their point fund position.

                            Not driver or team related but, saw some posts from Attica & Wayne County showing new clay being delivered to the tracks. WCS stated 120 truckloads. Don't remember how many for Attica but, based on the picture it appears the whole surface is being replaced

                              Both tracks needed new clay. They get this worked up correctly should be great racing surfaces.
                              Attica and WCs putting effort into improving.
                              I believe Hilltop is also doing the same.

                                Would like to see Gio get a shot right now with the remaining part of the race team when Gravel isn't available.

                                Will be interesting to see if they can get a driver set before the season or will need to pick and choose throughout the year depending on who might be available.

                                Let's hope it's actually clay this time.
