Tonight was an action packed night of racing at its best. Special thanks to Skipco Auto Aution and Rent 2 Own for being the night sponsor. At Intermission the kids were having a blast with the bike races, after their favorite drivers who had finished their heats.

Before moving in the features, a track official lost his Mom earlier in the night. Chris Kail, our Lead Announcer, please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Prayers for you Kail and your family from all of us at Midvale Speedway.
