halloween-1Thanks to Mother Nature on Sept. 25th we had to revise the schedule for the Season Championship and the Halloween Havoc. Our main goal is to run our season championship. The day will consist of 1 qualifier and the mains. Normal race fee’s will be in place for the race.

We will then have the Havoc 100 lap team race after the mains.

The awarding of the season awards, Havoc 100 awards, door prizes and our annual club meeting will commence immediately after the Havoc 100 lap team race.

Donna will still have the kids trick or treat parade through the pits so please plan on having the kids in there costumes. The Trick or Treat parade will take place at 9:30am. Don’t forget to bring your Halloween Spirit and Treats for the kids.

The cafe will operate as any other race day. Hope to see you at the track.

Track opens at 8am, sign-in closes at 9:30am and racing at 10am.

img_2355What 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 Friday, we ended up with a great track all day long. Thank you to Elmo Shirk and Scott and Nikki Lutz for their help.

With the 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 Midwest Sports Productions thank you for the awesome trophies. We want to congratulate all the winners and Pat Hammond who won the most patriotic award. 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, Checkered Flag Cafe and Phil Beardshear from AFX Fab we raised $1650.00. That is great folks. Like I said at the end of the day, don’t ever forget what happened on this day 15 years ago “Be PROUD to be an AMERICAN”. We live in the greatest country on earth and God Bless the USA.

ROF2016The 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. Pictured to the left his Tim’s nephew, Jeremy McDowell (co-owner Midwest Sports Productions), Tim’s father and Fred Aaron (Tim’s father-in-law) at the very first Racing for Heroes race.

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.

The 2016 Racing For Heroes race sponsored by Midwest Sports Productions will be Sept. 11th. All proceeds will be donated to the VFW Post 11499. This is our chance to give back to the men and women that fight for our freedom. We have trophies provided by MSP for the top 3 finishers in each class and one for the most Patriotic person at the race. We hope you all come out and have a FUN time with us.
