After a few weeks off, it’s time to bring back on of our favorite segments where we get to tell you about what to be on the lookout for on the track in the way of events….and what beer would best complement them from time to time as we beg for a beer sponsor that need only pay us in product to be a complete partner here at TDN!
This week we offer up a great find for the beer connoisseur. It’s an incredibly drinkable product from Erie Brewing Company called Railbender Ale. It’s very balanced, not too sweet, not too dry, not to hoppy, with subtle tones and a nice head, but a nice alcohol content too! We recommend this one, it’s a beer drinker’s beer if there ever was one! And, it has been known to give you whiplash from your belches too which as good a reason to drink some as any!
So, if any representatives of the Erie Brewing Company would like to sponsor our on tap segments for free product, it’ll be fine by us, we’ll sing your praises and chug your beer for you with pride!
Now then….here’s what’s On Tap this weekend!
Free Cheese Available In Wisconsin…and $50,000
Yep, it’s that time of year again as the World of Outlaw Late Models take to the legendary Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wi for the 28th running of the USA Nationals. Some lucky driver goes home with a 25 pound wheel of smoked gouda…and $50,000. The three day event actually starts Thursday night and concludes Saturday with the 100 lap final which takes place after what is probably the best pre race driver introduction production in dirt racing today!
Who’s hot coming in? We don’t need to tell you it’s Jonathan Davenport, but be on the lookout for the traditional favorites in Scott Bloomquist, Billy Moyer, Jimmy Mars and the like. It won’t have the same feeling without Brady Smith and Brian Birkhofer now that they’ve retired, but be on the lookout for AJ Diemel from the local contigent and also USMTS star Rodney Sanders will be looking to make an impression!

Outlaws Terrorize Canada
The greatest show on dirt continues their assault north of the border at Brockville Speedway on Friday and Autodrome Drummond in Quebec on Saturday. Earlier this week, big block modified star Stewart Friesen won his first WoO Sprint feature at Oshweken Speedway, making him the first Canadian since Tim Gee, to take a WoO Amain. We’re not 100% sure whether Friesen would dare skip Fonda on Saturday (most likely not) to partake in racing at Drummond, but it’s fun to play “what if”. Donny Schatz will be looking to take the sweep and pad his enormous point lead, but these tracks might just lend themselves to different driving styles, it’ll be an interesting weekend for sure.
Points Coming Into the Weekend:
1. Donny Schatz- 7281
2. Shane Stewart- 6915
3. Kerry Madsen- 6828
4. Brad Sweet- 6787
5. Joey Saldana- 6780
