On September 27th we closed out our 12th season here at Checkered Flag. The day was full of great racing, Fun and laughter. Thank you to all that helped out all season long. We definitely showed that we are not only a club but a team that will do what we have to do to make the track the best we can. Congratulations to all the days winners to all the winners.

We also crowned our Season Champions for 2015 with many of the points races coming down to the final A Mains and we congratulate all of them. Congratulations to Felix Pacheco, this years Jim Rupard Rising Star Award winner. Felix’s racing improved greatly this season and more importantly he brings his let’s have fun attitude to the track every race along with a good story or two.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors and hope you support them whenever possible. Without them we wouldn’t have the facility and prizes to share with you racers

As we wrap this up we want to thank all of you that have supported the track and club over the years. We’re not going to name anyone because we know we’ll forget someone. So if you have helped out in any way or raced here we thank you.

This all started as a dream 12 years ago and we never thought it would grow like it has. Thank you all once again. It brings us great joy to see everyone having Fun. We encourage everyone to support all of the tracks in the area so we can keep our hobby strong. Just remember to have FUN. If everyone gets 1 new racer into our hobby, it will go on forever.

Once again we thank you for your support and we hope to see you at our Halloween Havoc Race on October 4th and next year for our 2016 season.

What a day. We would like to thank everyone that came and helped us pay tribute to our veterans today. Just like our service men and women do, we showed just how much of a team the Kansas Dirt Slingers are.

After a long day of work on Saturday to get the track back in shape after the storms on Thursday, we found the track coming apart during the first round. With a lot of help our team rebuilt the track to make for better day of racing and it worked. The track was great for the rest of the day.

With VFW presenting the colors to start the day and Old Glory Flying High there was nothing that was going to stop this great day. We had friends from the South and North join us today and we hope they had a great time and will come back and join us again.

To all the Armed Forces past and present and First Responders we thank you and your families for the sacrifices you have made to keep us safe. To Randy Reed and Reed Buick GMC thank you for the awesome trophies. To our sponsors that supplied door prizes, thank you.

We did a great thing today and we hope you all realize that. With additional donations from Betty McDowell(my mom), Carrick Electric and Phil Beardshear from AFX Fab we raised $1345.00. Then Patrick Moline won the 50/50 drawing and donated that to the VFW bringing our total to $1390.00. That is great folks. Like I said at the end of the day “Be PROUD to be a AMERICAN”. We live in the greatest country on earth and God Bless the USA.

Upcoming 2015 Racing for Heroes

IMG_1290It’s time for the 2015 Racing for Heroes at CFRKC. The first Racing for Heroes was held in 2012 as a fundraiser for the local Basehor VFW where Tim’s father, Ret. SGM Marvin McDowell(deceased) was a member. Being an Army brat, Tim knew the importance of the local VFW to his father and wanted to do something for the struggling club.

Our first Heroes race was blessed with the local VFW participating with the presentation of colors and sticking around all day visiting with the many racers and passing out of the trophies. We are honored that members of the VFW have participated in every Racing for Heroes race. What the Kansas Dirt Slingers as a club and visitors watching the race, contributed that day and each Racing for Heroes thereafter, should make all of you proud.

Our race will be held Sept. 13th with gates opening at 8am and racing being at 10am. We look forward to seeing you as we honor and celebrate those that have served in our Armed Forces. Any questions don’t hesitate to call 913-909-1148.

All proceeds donated to VFW Post 11499.
