The "Wild Child" Jac Haudenshild, Chris Garnes and Dave "Fireball" Pinkerton all cruise on to victory lane 

  It was a blistering cold day at the Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe(Alma) Ohio. With an early start time most of the days action was during the day with a steady breeze causing for wind chills in the low 30's. The night's racing action got underway with qualifying and then kept rolling on from there with no intermission due to the cold temperature.

  With the 410 sprint feature up first it was a historic front row with veteran Jac Haudenshild and Danny Smith bringing the field around to the green flag. It was The Wild Child getting the jump and cruising on to victory with Cole Duncan and Danny Smith in tow in a 25 lap caution free race.

  In late model action it was Chris Garnes and Devin Moran on the front row. At the drop of the green Garnes would get a good jump and never looked back as Moran and Greggie Oliver were chasing him but couldn't catch him in traffic.

  In modified feature action Dave "Fireball" Pinkerton and Greggie Oliver ran side by side for the first 10 laps with Travis Dickson and Kenny Johnson side by side right on their tail but at the checkered flag it was Dave Pinkerton picking up the win with Oliver in 2nd.

  Next up is the "Dan Reno Memorial" race paying late models and modifieds $2,222 dollars.


**Also drivers will be going around thru the crowd collecting money for Josh McGuire who was injured this past Saturday in a violent flip at the 201 Speedway in Kentucky. Josh was told by many doctors that he is very lucky. He ended up fracturing his c1 vertebrae, but doctors say he shouldn't have to have surgery, but he will be in a neck brace for 3 months. Also Josh's good racing friend Eddie Carrier Jr will be having an auction with all proceeds going to Josh with many regional drivers donating merchandise to auction off, also Jason Montgomery will be auctioning off signed body panels with all proceeds going to Josh. It's amazing to me how the racing community (or family) all come together when one of their fellow drivers get injured. My thoughts and prayers are with Josh and Tracy McGuire and I hope Josh has a speedy recovery.**
