Track owner Tim presenting the check to members of the Basehor VFW Post 11499

What a great day we had at CFRKC!! I’m so proud of what the Kansas Dirt Slingers did today at Checkered Flag Raceway. The club hosted a benefit race for the VFW called Racing for Heroes and raised $1100 dollars for them. Makes me proud to be an American. The great thing for track owner, Tim McDowell, was that his dad and his hero, Marvin McDowell was able to make it out for part of the day. Tim is proud to say that he’s a “military brat”.

The heat was on at Checkered Flag R/C Raceway with this past weekend for the “Sprint Dirt Oval Classic” sponsored by Matt Gorman and Farm Bureau.

With an amazing car count at 119 and the outside air temperatures soaring near 100 Deg. F the competition was mentally and physically tough on everyone, beating and banging to take home some hardware. With some news faces in the winners circle this week, just proves that anyone can win at any given week at Checkered Flag R/C Raceway regardless of the conditions. Thanks to all that attended the race and bared the heat. You can check out today’s racing results here.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the next race on July 8th with the Midwest Outlaw Series and CFR’s Racing for Heroes charity race to benefit the VFW. Come out and support our troops and your favorite branch of the service.

What a great day of racing at Checkered Flag Raceway. A new record car count for a club race, 108 cars was set and the racing was fast and furious all day long. I think the truckload of topsoil was a great addition. Congrats to all the winners and congrats to Jim Hubbard the winner of our Boca Bearing drawing and Mark Dempsey was the winner of our 50/50 drawing.

To date we have 61 club members. Again we can’t thank you all for your support and help. We had visitors from Iowa and Oklahoma join us for the days activities and it was great to see them. Mother nature tried to throw us a curve but the Kansas Dirt Slingers won out in the end.

June 10th marks the date of the next race. Don’t forget and let’s get together and do it all over again. Open practice June 7th with the track opening at 5pm.

Racing results can be found here.  Updated driver points are here.
