January 25, 2015

Doug WolfgangDoug Wolfgang shared great memories of his family on the road and had a few laughs remembering some of his best times at race tracks during Saturday’s 2014 Night of Champions Banquet at Swan Lake Resort in Plymouth.  The South Dakota resident, who won over 500 features as a sprint car driver, captivated the crowd when he told of the fiery accident in 1992 at a Kansas Speedway that ended his racing career and how lucky he is to continue his involvement in the racing community.  He even agreed to come back and visit after owner Ed Kennedy announced that the World of Outlaws will be racing at the track on Oct. 17 this season.

Kennedy also spoke of the amount of changes that will be coming to the speedway in the next two years including new clay, bleachers and suites and more to create a state-of-the-art facility for the entire family to enjoy.  He is committed to making this the best racing facility in the Northern Indiana area.
