The Future Of Racing

Published on August 26, 2012 by

If you haven’t been to Buffalo River Race Park in Glyndon, MN this season… you’re missing out! The improvement they’ve made to the facilities is awesome! And the car count was huge for a Sunday night race. We were there tonight supporting the Red River Kart Club and our daughter Gwen. (She’s in the pink kart) The Kart Club was invited to run an exhibition race at intermission and the crowd and the kids had a blast! The Racing Life is proud to support the future of racing and we’re thankful to BRRP for allowing us to come out.

The Rain Couldn’t Stop Tony Stewart Night

Published on June 21, 2012 by

A brief but heavy rainstorm at 4:30pm had Tony Stewart Night in doubt at Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, ND. But the Schatz family went all out to make sure the track was as dry and smooth as it could be. Despite missing the final transfer spot in his heat, NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart went on to win the B-main giving him a 16th place starting position in the A-main. He worked his way around traffic and some developing holes in the track to come home in a solid 7th place finish in his Rocket Chassis Late Model prepared by #50 Late Model driver Jeff Wildung. This was Stewart’s 3rd Late Model race at the Speedway. In his first appearance in 2010 he finished 3rd and in 2011 he crashed shortly after starting the race.

A late afternoon rain storm made the track a challenge to keep smooth all night so the heavy equipment was brought out to smooth over some holes before feature time.

Back To RRVS

Published on June 17, 2012 by

I’ve been to many World of Outlaw races but it still gives me goosebumps watching them come down the straightaway in a 4-wide salute. It was great to see them back at the Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, ND. Local favorite Donny Schatz had a good run tonight coming home in 3rd place in the A-main. -Scott

The Search For A Future Champion

Published on June 11, 2012 by

The Racing Life is currently casting for a junior racer who is starting to make a name for himself/herself. We want that individual to be the embodiment of what racing is all about:  Dedication, Devotion, and Integrity.

The Racing Life will follow this driver on and off the track. We want to show how much time and effort is put into becoming a great driver. From wins and losses at the track, to the dinner table at home, we follow this driver and his family through his/her break out season.

Send us your driver request and why this racer would best fit what we are looking for to: Scott Sailer at scott@theracinglife.com
