Thank You to our loyal sponsors!
Exciting news for Gary West Motorsports!! August 19th 2022 was the season championship at Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. On the morning of the 19th the deal was done and Gary moved into a new class.
Gary will be the owner/driver of the familiar #19 Sportsman car that has won so many races and championships formerly owned and driven by Cory Houdek. Gary has some big shoes to fill in the 2023 season. The Friday August 19th race was interrupted by rain just three laps into the feature. However, Gary did get to take the car out for "Hot Laps" before the race and looked pretty good.
The Mid-Am Racing Series, formerly Mid American Stock Car Series, is a traveling stock car racing series in the Midwestern United States. The cars are based on a 108" metric stock frame, less costly suspension parts and a maximum of 358 cubic inch engine. The car's roll cage and chassis were made of a design very similar to the same chassis a previous design of NASCAR cup chassis, but have also included more modern safety features such as plated door bars and the "Earnhardt bar" which runs from the roof to the dash. The series runs primarily on paved racetracks but also appears on dirt and road courses.
"We will spend this time to prepare the car for next season and probably run Hawkeye Downs program until the following year. I couldn't be more excited".
"We have some work to do but, this is going to be awesome"!
The 2022 season is off and running. "Every week we get a little better." Fathers Day weekend was a lot of fun as Gary not only raced from the Pole position.. He also sang our country's National Anthem before the races began.
A special thank you to our loyal sponsors. The Nashville I-24 Campground, Jade Investments and The Rock n Roll Banker. Also, a big thanks to the gang at Legends.Direct for all their help in setting up the car and their attention to detail.
Guitars and Race Cars, will be the theme for 2022!! Catch Gary in concert or at the track! It's going to be an exciting summer!
