  Hello Racefans! There were several rainouts this past week including Gas City I-69 Speedway,Brownstown (IN) Speedway,Bloomington (IN) Speedway and Moler (OH) Speedway. Anderson (IN) Speedway and Kamp (IN) Speedway both endured the very cold temperatures and blustery winds to complete there racing programs. Dennis Erb Jr. won the ALMS/NALMS LM Feature at Kamp (IN) Speedway at there season opener for the 2009 racing season..Johnny Van Doorn won the CRA Super Series Late Model 125 at Anderson (IN) Speedway Saturday Night April 11th.
       I am very excited because Anderson Speedway has brought the RedBud 300 Race back to life and it is scheduled for Tuesday Night June 16th at Anderson Speedway. Kyle Busch is scheduled to compete in this very special event celebrating the Golden years of ASA American Speed Association and Rex Robbins the founder of ASA Racing Series. Who knows who will or might show up top compete or serve as a "grand marshall" during the pre-race festivities? Stay tuned and I will pass along any information I can gather! I grew up going to ASA races with my dad Tom Botos Sr. at tracks like O'Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis,Winchester (IN) Speedway and Salem (IN) Speedway. I can remember when Anderson Speedway would have an ARCA and an ASA each year,man those were the days!
         I am very glad that MAARN is now printing weekly and will do my best each week to cover the midwestern area of racing and keep racing fans as up to date as much as possible. At Anderson Speedway I had the great pleasure of meeting Justin Matson in the #55 CRA Super Series Late Model in his rookie season in the series. Justin is very excited about the 2009 racing season and vowed that he is pursuing the 2009 CRA Super Series Rookie Of The Year Award as he plans to run every single event on the 2009 CRA Super Series racing schedule. I took a few pictures of Justin's car and will include them with this story and hopefully you will see the pics in this week's MAARN News.
