    Heard there is somewhere around 112 entries for the midget race at IMS. Is it going to be on TV anywhere?

    I made it to this race once before ---- best racing of the week. Love these speedy little cars.

    This is the new track at IMS, first time they've raced here.

    I assume you mean the year they built a dirt track as a tribute to Tony Stewart. This is shaping up to be a bigger and hopefully regular event. Should be quite a show given the huge field of drivers.

    My mistake, then. I went to the midget race at IRP. Kenny Irwin raced --- that's how long ago it was.
    Only time I made it to Indy that early in the week.

    We saw it at IRP also, can't remember the year. A helluva race and a good time.

    Guy about 20 miles from me has restored 2 of them, both Offy powered.

    One has a paint scheme similar to this, the other is red/white

    glad that NBCSN picked it up, not excited about a one hour recap, no telling how that will turn out, hope it is for all of the "A" feature and a bit about the bad luck of some of the favorites, but I'm not paying the ransom money to speedshift, 40 bucks for two days isn't that bad though. Hell of a lot cheaper than the Chili Bowl..

    I wonder how many cars Kunz will run. He raced 8 last weekend and the lowest finisher was 11th. Bell makes 9? Here's the highlights

    This is excellent: The men who received Bryan Clauson’s heart and lungs will serve as grand marshals for the inaugural BC39 midget race at Indianapolis tomorrow night.

    one of the many reasons I like being a small part of the racing community, they are always helping others.

    I had to look up what Landon grew up racing to try and figure out how this was going to go. He has a championship on dirt in go karts....when he was 11.

    Since this tweet is getting a big reaction, some more context: When Clauson passed away in ‘16, he saved five lives through organ donation. His family supports Driven2SaveLives, which is a campaign started by @stef_wilson after brother Justin passed away.

    Hopefully the weather works out better next year. They're doing their best under bad conditions, but it's going to piss some off cutting the program short like that.
