What a great day to kick off the season. It was great to see everyone again. We had 65 cars take to the track and saw some great racing. Some of us need to do some car maintenance but that’s another story. Congratulations to all the winners. We had some new racers that saw us have a Novice class again and that’s what we need for our hobby to continue. A big welcome to all of you.

During the drivers meeting there were 2 tweaks to some rules made. The Sprint Car class is now 10.5 Blinky tires. Bandito tires on the rear are now a second tire option for the Street Stock and Limited Late Model classes. There will be no more changes done to the rules until the end of the season.

The next action at the track is Practice on 6/2/16 and racing resumes on 6/5/16. Thanks again for all the support.

What a great day at the track. The kids were Trick or Treating the pits and the racing on the track was a fun filled event. We had 68 entries today all vying for the coveted Tombstone trophies. The racing was great and most important at the end of the day everyone was smiling and talking about the surprises that were added to the Havoc 100. The Trailer race was a added bonus this year and it was entertaining for sure. We would like to thank Gary Offutt for doing some guest announcing. Gary will definitely bring a smile to everyone with his style of announcing. All in all it was just a great day. Donna and I would like to congratulate all the winners and our sponsors for the great door prizes. This will now close out our 2015 season. Thank you all for the continued support and we hope to see you all next season. The rules will be updated soon and the 2016 schedule will be made hopefully by the end of the year.

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.

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.

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.

It was another Fun day at CFR today. We had 63 cars and saw some great racing. Congratulations to all the race winners and all the door prize winners. The track was great for the heat races and then was in a transition phase for the mains and just stayed there making it a rough time for some in the mains. But like we always say, it’s the same for everyone. Some hit the setup better than others. We were finally able to get a Figure 8 race in and it was a hoot.

Happy Birthday Mark Dempsey

Happy Birthday Mark Dempsey

We would also like to wish Mark Dempsey a Happy 55th Birthday. He said there was no better place to spend it than at the track racing. I have to agree with him. Yes the AARP jokes already started.

We will now take the Holiday weekend off and get back to racing on Sept. 13th with our Racing For Heroes Benefit trophy race. A big thank you to Reed Buick GMC for sponsoring the race. Until then, enjoy the holiday and we’ll see you at the track.

As the sun began to set it was the sign that the 2015 Kansas Dirt Oval Championship was about to come to an end. With the day starting early Mother Nature tried to pull her usual tricks with a rain shower but the CFR track crew was a step ahead of her with the track tarped and ready for her sneak attack. After a short delay the track crew went to work prepping the track for a FUN day of racing.

With 51 racers totaling 115 entries there were some veterans of the track and some first timers trying to find out for themselves what CFR is all about. The action on the track was just as hot as the temperature which the KDOC is traditionally known for. There were a lot of smiles and laughter through out the day. Basically just great racing, friendships rekindled and new friendships made. Thats the main goal of CFR and the Kansas Dirt Slingers club, FUN and FRIENDSHIP.

We would like to thank Robart MFG/Zap for being the primary sponsor of this years KDOC and for suppling the goodie bags with there products for all the racers. We also want to thank Kicker, Custom Works, Associated, AKA, Hobbico, Panther Racing and McAllister for suppling the door prizes that were given away.

We would like to thank everyone that took the time out of their busy summer schedules to attend this years race. We know there are plenty of race tracks to attend throughout the summer and you chose to battle the heat on and off the track at what we think is the greatest show in Kansas. Congratulations to all winners. Thank you to all the Kansas Dirt Slinger members. You all pitched in wherever needed to help make the race a huge success.

Lastly we would like to congratulate John Dempsey on his induction into the clubs Hall of Fame. John has been here since the beginning of the track when he, Donna and myself moved the first dirt and continues to tell me he’s not going anywhere. Once again thank you all and we hope to see you at the track soon.
