Omaha resident Mike Cavalieri, owner of www.HemiPartsKing.com, sent this photo of the I-29 Dragway just across the border in Iowa after the massive flooding that has covered the area recently.


Cavalieri says the facility, which also includes the Mid-America Motorplex road course and offices/meeting rooms, will be rebuilt. You can’t keep racers down for long.

Off the Track: NASCAR listens to fans and revamps 2020 schedule

NASCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) officials will play up the patriotism theme next year when the Brickyard 400 moves to the Fourth of July weekend. The event remains scheduled for Sept. 8 this year, but will move to Sunday, July 5, next year.


Attendance has been dwindling for the event which drew 275,000 fans in 1994 but was down to an estimated 35,000 by 2017. The July 4th holiday had belonged to Daytona International Speedway, but it gave up the traditional and often rain-wrecked event to claim the final race of the regular season, Aug. 29 when the championship field is finalized.


NASCAR has made significant changes to its 2020 schedule due to complaints from fans and the industry as a whole.

Heatshield Products has released its new FR Shields for fuel-injected engines. They install over the fuel rails to limit heat transfer from the engine to both the injectors and the fuel that flows through the rails. Keeping fuel as cool as possible increases density, which helps engine performance and efficiency. FR Shields are available in kits to fit single- or dual-rail systems and they can be custom ordered to fit special applications.
