Highland Honors First Inductee into the Speedway’s Hall of Fame
Highland IL (April 7, 2012) Tradition has always been a mainstay at the Highland Speedway, and this past Saturday the Speedway honored the first inductee into the Highland Speedway Hall of Fame.
It was just one year ago we lost famed driver and car owner Chris Bargetzi, the first inductee into the Highland Speedway Hall of Fame.
The night was named in his honor. Bargetzi’s last race car, the yellow 441 Late Model, sat the entire evening in the Casey’s General Stores Victory Lane, reminding all of us that Chris is keeping a watchful eye on the Speedway.
Becker Jewelers Super Late Models
Making his way down from Northern Illinois, Scott Schmitt looked to be the favorite going into the Becker Jewelers Super Late Model feature, having won his heat race and the Quick Six Dash.
The race got off to a shaky start when a first lap caution led to a complete restart of the feature event. On the second attempt the 30V of Mark Voigt was looking to avenge his last week’s misfortunes (he broke leading the feature). Voigt immediately jumped to the high side while last year’s track Champion Chad Zobrist decided to work the low groove and by lap six Zobrist took the 78 machine to the point clearing Voigt by several car lengths.
Tonight we are kicking off a new weekly contest for our fans. When you buy your adult (over 18) grandstand ticket, you will also get a Pick 3 winner card. There is one entry per adult grandstand ticket. Guess the winner of 3 Features during the night. Turn in your guess to the grandstand gate before the dashes start. If you pick the correct 3 winners, you will get $100. If there are more than one correct guess, money will be split between all correct guesses. If no one guesses correct, money will roll over until a winner is correct. We will switch up classes every week. The sponsor is Affordable Roofing. Cards are being provided by Tribout Carnival Supply. Thanks to our sponsors.
