We would like to thank everyone that made it out today and hope you all had a Fun time. It was great to have 7 novice racers today. Congratulations to all of today’s winners. Thank you to all of our sponsors for the door prizes. Our winners were Matt Fling(Tower Hobbies Certificate), Eddie Ingram JR.(McAllister SS Body), Drew Fick( PPG Paint T-Shirt), Lenny Blocker(Bearing Blaster donated by Mark Dempsey) and John Dempsey(Signs By Taco wrap).

What a week! The 2017 Kansas Dirt Oval Championship is complete and we hope everyone had a great time. We would like to thank everyone for coming and racing with us and we hope you all come back and join us again. We have made so many friends at the track and that’s what this is all about. Friendships and memories.

The week started off great with Fred and I getting the track prepped on Tuesday and looking good. Then our friends, the weather reporters, totally miss the mark calling for a 1/4″ of rain and we ended up with 5 1/2″ which wiped out the track completely. So guess what? We started all again Thursday night, we worked on it during practice on Friday and we think the track came in great on Saturday. We can’t thank Fred, John and Elmo for their hours of help prior to and on race day. To everyone that grabbed a blower, helped with the hose or anything else to help keep the track in shape thank you, thank you, thank you.

The race day started with our drivers meeting which saw us having some FUN with Bob Cross and help set the tone for a FUN day. Sorry Bob but we had to do it. Hope you had fun with it to. LOL. We announced our newest Hall Of Fame inductee, Felix Pacheco. Felix you are and always have been a crucial member of the club. Congratulations my friend, you deserved it.

The races were flying along until we hit a hick up with the mains setup. I want to apologize for the delay but I’m a man of my words and it didn’t set things up the way I said we were running and I had to make it right. We all owe Mike and Brittany Garrison, Matt Murphy and Clint Seitz a big thank you for helping get the issue straightened out. You all helped get my stress level back down. The mains saw awesome racing and was a great way to finish the day.

We would like to thank Nikki Lutz for taking pictures and making the shirts. Scott Lutz and Chris Flower for always helping do what ever needs done and keeping me calmed down. Clint Sietz for running the races, we both about had a meltdown but we kept each other calm and got through it. Dan Flick, thank you for running the video camera because I got it started and forgot about it. Pat, Fred and Donna in the Snack Shack, thanks for taking care of all of us throughout the day. To all the club members thank you for always being there to help promote our main rule. Let’s have FUN. The Kansas Dirt Slingers R/C Club should be proud of what we accomplished this weekend. All in all I would say the KDOC went well and we hope to see you all again.

What a Fun day at the track. We had 65 cars take to a tricky track that saw all different race conditions that made you get up on the wheel today. It was a day full of great weather until we got to the mains and the clouds started rolling in, but we got it in before the rain hit. A big thank you to everyone for keeping things moving along and helping get everything picked up. Congratulations to all of today’s winners.

A big thank you to Maclan for the gift certificates given away today. The winners of the Signs by Taco Wraps were Cody Pierce and Brandon Warbritton. Robert Sode was the winner of the Checkered Flag Shirt from Nikki Lutz. Remember Nikki can put anything on a shirt for you. Thanks to all of our sponsors for helping us out. It is greatly appreciated.

As was discussed in the drivers meeting I made a mistake on the schedule and had us racing next weekend 7/2/17. We are rescheduling that race for 8/13/17. It was an oversight on my part and I hope you understand. So enjoy the holiday next weekend and we hope to see you on 7/16/17 when racing returns to Checkered Flag.

What a day. We were happy to host race 3 of the King Of Kansas City Series. We had a total of 97 cars that hit the track. There was some good racing and some bad but we hope everyone had a good time. The track was a little rough to begin the day but we kept working on it and it came around nicely. We would like to thank Gary, Rob and Mike for putting on the series and asking us to be part of it. I know there was some confusion with the mains but they worked at it and got it straightened out. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all that came out.
We will continue our club racing this Sunday 6/11/17. Until then everyone have a safe week and we hope to see you at the track.

Wow, what a day to start the 2017 season. We had 79 entries and 35 racers join the club and that’s fantastic. We want to thank you all and congratulations to all the winners. It was great seeing out extended family again and meeting some new ones.

For the first race of the season I would say we had some pretty good racing. I want to say we’re sorry for the delay with the printer issues but it seems we got that fixed thanks to Darren and Cody Pierce. Congratulations to Jason McClarninon on winning The Signs by Taco wrap. Taco has agreed to give away a wrap at each race and we thank him for that. We will have additional prizes to give away during the season from our other sponsors and we thank them also.

We will be taking this Sunday off so our racers can spend time with their mothers on Mothers day. Our next action at the track is May 18th for open practice from 5pm – 8pm. As always there is no charge on practice nights. Racing will resume on May 21st with the track opening at 8am, sign-in closes at 9:30am and Racing at 10am. Once again thanks for your support.

On October 2nd we closed out our 13th season here at Checkered Flag with our Season Championship/Halloween Havoc combo race. The day was full of great racing and Fun and laughter.

Thank you to all that helped out all season long. John and Elmo with track prep, Pat, Clint, Chris, Scott and Nikki helping run the races, car inspections and taking pictures, Donna, Pat and Fred for keeping us all fed on race days and my sister for maintaining the website. To all the other club members 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 and put on great race program.

The day started with the running of our season championship that saw great racing all day long. We then moved on to the ever popular Havoc 100 where we saw some first time and veteran racers wondering what we had in store for the race this year. All we can say is wow. We hope you all had fun. Congratulations to all the days winners.

We also crowned our Season Champions for 2016 with many of the points races coming down to the final A Mains and we congratulate all of them. Congratulations to Cody Pierce, this years Jim Rupard Rising Star Award winner. Cody’s racing improved greatly this season and more importantly he continues to learn and have fun doing it.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors and hope you support them whenever possible. Without them we wouldn’t have the 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 13 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 next year for our 2017 season.
Tim and Donna
