Midwest Racing Roundup By Tom Botos    5-31-10
Hey racefans what an awesome racing weekend it was everywhere weatherwise wihich made for some great racing  at both Mt. Lawn Speedway and Plymouth Speedway! The racing was totally off the hook Saturday NIght at Mt. Lawn Speedway with 18 Late Models,16 Thundercars and 25 Hornets all doing battle in fifty lap features. The points leader in the Hornet Division  #76 Brian Reynolds worked his way from the mid-pack to eventually lead the Hornet fifty lap feature only to cut a tire and scrape the outside retaining wall with two laps to go. Brad Mcmahon ended up winning the hornet fifty lap feature.
#28 Jeff Marcum won the Late Model Fifty lap feature over Eric Evans  after Scott Knepley,Terry Cater,Brandon Mefford and William Mefford were involved in a turn one short turn melee which busted Terry Caters Radiator ending his night early.
Cngratulations to Jeff Marcum as he has won two features now already in this very young racing season! I really miss L.J. at Mt. Lawn Speedway meaning L.J. Lines a former Raintree 100 winner. Is there anyone out there reading this that can offer L.J. a Late Model ride?For full late model results go to www.
#25 Neil Marcum won the fiftylap feature for the Thundercar  Division. The thundercars were slicing and dicing passing inside and outside high and low! Cody Walker led for many laps until he was passed for good by Neil Marcum.
Sunday Night I went to Plymouth Speedwa y and all I can say is WOW!
The racing in the sportsman division and the Late Model Division was simply amazing! Brian Ross led for most of the race until he was passed by #5 Dakota Carson for the win.
Fellow trackchasers Dave Egan and Chris otherwise known as Michiana Racin  on www.stockcarextreme  met me at Plymouth Speedway thsi week and they really made my weekend as they both talked with Isiaiah my little briher. I love watching the power and fast speeds that the late models  display when they sail past you!!! Isaiah  sure had a great time seeing outlaw super late models for the first  time! I met Carl Smith the  creator of . SCE is a messageboard and racing website trying to bridge the ga[ps and cover weekly short track racing  in a different way. It is free to join a good place to find some racing news that you might not know about!
Friday Night I went to The Indianapolis Speedrome and watched six time World Figure 8 Champion win the 800th Figure 8 Feature since its inception a the 1/5 mile oval. Good crowds were on hand at all three racing events and I hope ole man winter is long gone. I really hate wearing jackets and coats when it is racing season! For any news,notes or comments please email me at Gotta go see ya at the races!
