  • National tour thrills at county speedway

    By Kristopher Blankenship

    The UMP Summer National tour made its annual stop at Fayette County Speedway last Friday night, ushering in the track’s biggest night of the year.  

    The Summer National “Hell Tour” is an annual endurance series, which races 33 nights at 33 different tracks throughout the Midwest over 39 straight days.

    Off days are for extended travel, so no rest for wicked, right?

  • Top racers beginning to establish themselves at speedway

    By Kristopher Blankenship
    The annual Fayette County Fair race is always held mid-week with the fair activities, and along with racing from Friday, July 11, the track has seen a lot of good racing.
    Craig Kern has become red hot, B.J. Deal has started to flex his muscles and Eric Harris has emerged as a new challenger in the Street Stock class.
    Wednesday, July 16
    The annual midseason Fair race is always held on Wednesday night during the fair. With the county fair in full swing, the speedway was again alive and full of energy.

  • Superstitions in focus for Friday the 13th races in Brownstown

    By Kristopher Blankenship

    The 10th week of racing at Fayette County Speedway came on a beautiful June day last Friday night, with cool weather, green grass, a prepared race track and plenty of race cars.

    By all accounts, the perfect night for racing.

    Except, of course, that it was Friday the 13th and everyone knew to expect a big full moon rising from over the backstretch wall.

    Superstition is in the heart of all racers.

  • Track provides several grooves in week 9

    By Kristopher Blankenship

    For the past couple weeks, I haven't written anything up, because there just wasn't much to write about, with the same drivers running up front and many of the same results at Fayette County Speedway.

    It’s up to the racers to change all that and there have been some drivers diligently working to find just a little more speed, and on Friday night, that work started to show in week nine action.

    On another great night of racing, there was a breakthrough for one of the track’s most popular drivers.
