I attended last Saturday’s races at Mid-America Speedway at the Marion County (Indiana) Fairgrounds on the far southeast side of Indianapolis. I watched some great racing on one of the best short-track facilities in the Midwest. Riders say this track is always incredibly well prepped and billiard-table smooth.
On this night Grand National riders Ion Stear and Sam Lowe were on hand, as was former three-time AMA Grand National race winner Danny Ingram, who is making a full comeback to racing next year.
In addition to the traditional flat track bikes there were quads and Speedway machines featured. It was a fun-filled night. I really enjoyed watching Ingram in his comeback looking so strong. Also it was great to see AMA Grand National team owner George Mack (Mack Daddy Racing) showing that he’s a very talented racer in his own right.
Here is a photo essay from that evening’s races. If you get the chance you should do yourself a favor and get out to Mid-America some Saturday night to watch the action. The track would even be a perfect venue for a Grand National.
