Default 2022 Midwest Series

Time to think about the 2022 MWS Season.
Dan Lewis contacted me recently and said he will have a track in the Joliet area for the 2022 season. He didn't give specifics on exactly how it will happen. I guess we'll have to wait and hear his detailed plans. Good luck to him.

Dan found a great landowner who is into all motorsports. I know a meeting is scheduled for Feb 23rd to stake out the dimensions for the asphalt. The owner is being very generous. Dan would really like to mimic the Toledo Track layout.

I understand Cincy will be laying asphalt in the spring too. Then theirs's Big Dog who I feel we owe big time. Three tracks would a great thing! Here's to hoping everyone can pull it off we can have another great season!

So is the Cincinnati track going to be the new home track of the Toledo 1/8th Racers or is there still hope for a track in the immediate Toledo area?

I hope many of them will join us. We have had discussions about "relocating" the GLC south to our new home.

We are still in talks with a few locations. The Cincinnati track is home to a different group.

Thank you very much for the reply. I wish you guys luck in finding a new home. Iím sure itís difficult to find the perfect fit. For one noise, with new housing tracts and apartment complexes going up everywhere it canít be easy.

Just got the sort of news no body likes to hear. Long time nitro racer in 1/8th scale with racing accomplishments a mile long, Rick Davis has passed. He went back to the Paris days and was very competitive up till the end. I am sure there are others that can pass on some great stories and do better justice to identifying his racing accomplishments than I, so please share them with us.

He was the greatest at driving a car from ground level.
