Short track racing to return to New Castle in 2016

mtlawn02

Short track race fans will soon be able to hear the words they’ve been waiting to hear for the past two years; “Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to beautiful and historic Mt. Lawn Speedway.” For some its the excitement for the races that they’ve been longing for. For others, it could simply be the taste of a Mt. Lawn cheeseburger that nothing compares to. Only instead of watching races on Saturday nights, race fans will now have to wait until Sunday. Mt. Lawn Speedway released two tweets this afternoon on Twitter. The first tweet was a link to the 2016 track schedule which is as follows:

  • Sunday, May 29th (Grand Reopening Special: Tickets $8.00, 10 and under free)
    • VanHoy Oil Thunder Cars, Vores Compacts, TQ Midgets, FasKarts, and TBA.
  • Sunday, June 12th
    • Street Stocks, VanHoy Oil Thunder Cars, Compacts, and TBA.

The second Tweet was a link to the 2016 VanHoy Oil Thunder Car rules.

Great movie to watch (please read)

I recently heard of a movie called “Trophy Kids” on Twitter and thought it sounded interesting. Even though I read what this movie was about, I don’t think I would ever have imagined what was in this movie. I have seen sports from several different angles: as a player, as a coach, as a spectator, and as a broadcaster….but this film is from a completely different angle. I won’t spoil what the movie is about for you, but it is definitely worth the time of watching it on Netflix or iTunes. Here is the trailer for the movie:
