TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Jeffrey Carver Jr. from Alton, Illinois won the AMA All Star National Flat Track race at the Terre Haute Action Track on Saturday night. Jared Mees from Sebastian, Florida was 2nd and Kolby Carlile from Tempe Arizona took 3rd. It was the first race at the Action Track since the start of the season was delayed due to the COVID pandemic. Race organizer Bob Sargent says he’s happy to have racing back in the area again.
“We’re very excited you know it’s good to have all the fans back out here something a little bit different, we do motorcycles once a year and we were able to reschedule these guys we’ve lost a couple guys with the COVID situation that we’ve been in and the state let us go now with 50 percent of the crowd and start racing again so we’re fortunate to get these guys scheduled,” he said. The next race will feature the sprint cars on Wednesday July 1st.
