Great racing! The track was damn near perfect,hard-packed and smooth.Not one red flag during all the races.Weather was hot!Pretty good crowd,should have had more,but good nonetheless.40+ singles,30+ twins.
Fast time turned by Singles champ overall Vanderkur overall!(A first,I think) Fastest by a twin,Jeff Carver just a tick behind on an XR.The Harleys dominated over the Kawasaki's,Suzuki's,et al. all night.Was a perfect night for Sammy Halbert.Won his heat,the dash-for-cash and a come-from-behind 25 lap main over Brad Baker and 3rd place Henry Wiles.This was Halbert's first race after ACL surgery.Impressive!

No question it was a great night for Sammy Halbert although Mees won the Dash.

Pretty sure Jared would have traded that dash win for a top 5 in the main! I think Bryan Smith was a little disappointed in his finish too. Hank on a FAST Harley..... Now that could be interesting this year.

My brother in law and I are riding up again from Tennessee. We have been going for many years now and always look forward to the mile at Springfield. It seems like everyone brings their A game to Springfield for sure. If you see two old guys in the bleachers down towards the first turn with bags of kettle corn half the size of their bodies, that's us. :

I always the describe the Flat Track fan demographic as: white guys in their late forties who have gray hair and white guys in their late forties who used to have gray hair.

OK, the Springfield rainout was a bummer but you Midwest types get a bonus later in the year.

In other news. Multi-time World Superbike Champ and MotoGP race winner Troy Bayliss may come over and race AMA Pro Flat Track at Pomona on October 12.

Me and my brother drove down to Springfield for the mile this year to find out it was cancelled because of rain.
Looks like there will be a double header on Labor Day weekend with the rescheduled rain date.

Sho nuff! And I just bought my tix for both days

We usually go to Labor Day but miss Memorial Day to go fishing in Canada so I didn't know it was canceled. Thanks for the heads up spdjnky

Can anybody tell me about Colonial Downs race in Virginai on August 24.
This looks to be the closest mile race to my area and I am thinking about going.
Also the track is listed as 1.25 mile and not 1 mile.

Thanks Roger

Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't realize that they had made an addition to the schedule. I'm heading down to Hagerstown in a couple weeks, and I definitely will have this one on my RADAR.
