Well, the weekend is almost here, along with Chargin' Charlie Ryan's Memorial Race being held at Springport Motor Speedway. Surely hope to see a lot of OSLM's and race fans show up for it, and give the Ryan family the reassurance that Charlie has not been forgotten in the local mid-Michigan racing scene.

Full invert hopefully.

I want to say that Jeff, Pam and the entire Springport Motor Speedway staff deserve kudos for putting this race on. Keeping the memory of a well liked driver alive is always something that is worth the effort. Same with The Godfather, Stan Perry.

Kind of wondering when Brian Heeney's Wild Child race will come to an end.

Everyone has likely heard of paying it forward.

I believe sometimes, it needs to be paid backward.

Just my humble opinion.

have a good day,

From Springport's web page:
Springport, Michigan (8/9) – A strong field of 18 Kitsmiller RV Super Late Models lined up to pay tribute to one of the all-time great Super Late Models competitors in the Mid-Michigan area, Charlie Ryan Jr. Given the moniker “Chargin’ Charlie” because of his ability to start deep in a field and charge his way to the front of the field, Charlie was a fan favorite, for his tenacity and success behind the wheel. This would be the 10th annual celebration of the life of Charlie Ryan Jr. and the first edition of the event to be hosted at the picturesque 3/8s (.375) mile oval.

Bill Heeney Jr. started the 50-lap grind on the pole. Heeney would pace the field for the opening 14 laps, before being displaced by a hard charging Brian Huntley, who entered the night leading the point standings by just one marker over Randy Day. Huntley would lead just a pair of circuits before he would succumb to a quick Dan Krzywosinski. After missing the opening two nights of the season, Krzywosinski had been undefeated since debuting his ride, with a three-race long win streak on the line. While the field would do everything they could to try and overcome the Clio, Michigan pilot, it was not to be as Dan Krzywosinski went on to win his first Charlie Ryan Jr. Memorial in his very first attempt. Randy Day was second and unofficially would take the points lead. Bob Bauer would finish third with Huntley and Dan Stehouwer completing the top five. Charlie Ryan Jr.’s brother Tim Ryan would win the six-car Dash, while John Kulikowski and Bauer would take the heat races. Krzywosinski was the fastest in qualifications with a 15.257 (88.48 mph). After being sent to the rear around the mid-point of the feature, Brian Huntley would be tagged as the winner of the Hard Charger award for passing the most cars in the race.
