While you mentioned all the "nationally" known drivers (you missed Joe Ruttman and Norm Nelson) that have competed at on the high banks of Toledo I feel compelled to list a few that I grew up watching at the Benore speed plant.

At the head of the list has to by Joy Fair who dominated at Toledo and Flat rock (MI).

Iggy Katona, "Moose" Myers, Jack Bowser, Danny Byrd, Bob Senneker, Ed Howe, Harold Harold, Sr., Ed Hage etc, etc all had great success at Toledo.

Geesh, you guys make me feel old!


Yeah, I shortened the list a bit. Kasey Kahne ran here and Ken Shrader usually makes a show each year. I make myself feel old too. How about Rollie Beale? Great USAC racer from the sixties.


Doing our show live from Toledo Speedway is quite different than what we were used to. The downtown Toledo restaurant we previously broadcast from couldn't care less that we were there. They wouldn't allow us to feed the show through the PA system and the background noise was rediculous. It was a bit different with the show being heard over the Toledo Speedway Bar and Grill PA and having real race fans in the audience actually paying attention to what we were saying; whether it was correct or not. Plus we didn't have Jason there to smooth out the transitions or help with a larger load than usual of live reads. Lots of thanks go to Scott Schultz and the whole Toledo Speedway gang.

Now if we can just get those extra 100,000 seats put in and start petitioning for a Cup event.



Having Michigan roots I think this is awesome


Thanks Michael. We'll try to hold up our end.


"How about Rollie Beale?

And Mel Kenyon.
