This Week In AARN // August 18th, 2015

IT WAS A WEEKEND OF EMOTIONAL CONTRASTS in Sprint Car racing, which started with sadness as veteran driver Jim Campbell Jr. (top, Photo by Lew Brubaker) lost his life in a pre-race crash at Pa.’s Williams Grove Speedway. Area Auto Racing News sends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of this dedicated racer; At the KNOXVILLE NATIONALS (above left, Photo by Paul Arch) Donny Schatz hugs the trophy he received after taking his ninth win in the event! During the “Big Show 7” at N.Y.’s Albany-Saratoga Speedway (center, Photo by Mike Petrucci), sparks fly from a broken torque tube on the Modified driven by event promoter Brett Hearn as he duels with Kenny Tremont. Hearn pitted, then came back to finish fourth; Patrick Emerling (above, No. 07, Photo by Bev & Ken Dippel) is headed for victory in the RoC Modified “Tom Druar/Tony Jankowiak Memorial” at N.Y.’s Lancaster Speedway. Here, he duels with runner-up Chuck Hossfeld.
