ROC heats completed on opening night of RaceSaver Nationals

By Greg Soukup EAGLE, Neb. – The first day of the seventh annual IMCA RaceSaver Nationals at Eagle Raceway kicked off Thursday afternoon with a press conference featuring past Nationals champions Kevin Ramey and Jason Martin as well as 2019 track champion Trevor Grossenbacher.  Also in attendance was this year’s grand marshall, Dr. Danger who helped put on a small demonstration of the spectacular feats he will be performing throughout the weekend.

Qualifying heats for the Jake Ita Memorial Race of Champions were held later that evening to set the starting grid for the Saturday event. The line-up for that race are as follows: Trevor Grossenbacher, Bennet                        Mike Moore, Des Moines, Iowa Bradley Sterrett, Bloomington, Ind.                 Kaleb Johnson, Sioux Falls, S.D. Adam Gullion, Lincoln                                    Brooklyn Holland, Fresno, Calif. [Read More]
