Points are updated....Sportsman 500

The final point totals are posted!  Congratulations to our 2012 Track Champions.  Jeremy Brawner takes home the first ever Super Late Model championship at the Mini-Madhouse.  Todd Holloway won the Sprint Car Title.  Jason Cook wins his first track championship in the Sportsman Class and J.R. Parsley takes home the hardware in the Busch Class.  Each one was well earned, as we had some of the best racing ever this year, as well as some of the highest car counts.

We will wrap up the season this Saturday with the running of the Sportsman 500 and Richard Hindman Memorial Sprint Car 150.  We will keep the wings on them again this year.  We normally don't run a Limited  race, but if the car count is good, I have no problem running a Busch race as well.  We will run group qualifying, as we did last year for all the classes.  We will divide the field into groups no larger than 5 and you will score your best lap of your single 5 minute session as your qualifying time.  Come on out and get one last fix at the Madhouse in 2012!

Also, everyone mark your calendar for the Awards banquet on October 27th.  We will have it at Dustin Hineman's house again this year.  Thanks in advance to DBO for opening up his house to all of us.  I will post the address and directions after the race this weekend, as well as the time.

See you all on Saturday.

Rain Make up for Race #2 Victory Lane Photos

Below are the victory lane photos from the last race, which was the rain make up for Race #2.  Congrats to the winners.  Todd Holloway won both the Sprint Car and SLM races for the third race in a row and completed a Mini Madhouse Triple-Double.  Bill Herzog brought home the checkers in the Sportsman Class, and JR Parsley gets the win in the Bush series.

This coming weekend, Ingalls Motor Speedway and IQSR will host the third and final race of the 2012 Tri-State Series.  We have been fortunate to host a race for this series for many years, and we often have our best racing of the season during this race.  It is a points race for the club, with any racers who are not club members not receiving points.  I hope you will all come out and help IQSR put on a great show at the Mini-Madhouse.

The track will be open for practice on Friday.  Registration will open at 8:00 am on Saturday, with the track open for practice at 9:00 am.  For a complete schedule of events, click here.  Thanks to Orrin Sunde for his continuing commitment to one of the best racing series in the country.  He deserves a huge shout out from all of us for all of his efforts this year.

Hope to see you on Saturday!

Points are updated!

Hello Racers! First, I'm sorry that I missed last nights race, but I decided to slice my hand open while preparing my cooler for the race track, and had to get a few stitches to close it up.  Thanks to Cookie, Tina, and J.R for running the show.  I hear I missed some close racing, congrats to the winners.  Photo's of last nights winners, as well as the winners from the two previous races will be posted soon.

I have updated the points.  You will notice quite a few changes, as I realized last week that I had been scoring a couple of regular racers, and they had not signed up as IQSR members.  This only affected the Sportsman series.  Since you must be a member of IQSR to score championship points, I had to make changes to nearly every race.  I also made a change to the Race #2 in the Bush Series.  Tim Creech was scored in that race as a Bush driver, but he is running for Sportsman points.  Since you are not eligible to score points in more than one class, I removed him from that race, and adjusted accordingly.  You can see the revised results of each race, as well as the updated yearly standings by clicking on the points tab above.  Click on the tabs at the bottom of that page to see each weeks race results.

Check back in the next few days for the victory lane photos, as well as lap times from last nights race.

2012 NCS Race #4 Results

Round 4 of the 2012 QSAC NCS series is in the books, and aside from dodging a few rain drops, the event was a huge success.  The track got over 5 inches of rain on Thursday and Friday, but we still managed to complete the event on schedule.  Rain seems to be a common theme at the NCS races this year, but luckily we were able to run the heats under the lights on Friday, and mother nature gave us a beautiful day on Saturday for the Mains.  

I would like to extend thanks to the entire IQSR membership for helping host a great event, whether by offering help to the racers from out of town, or helping in the pits with fuel, etc.  All of those things are greatly appreciated.  Special thanks to Patti Pedigo and Dave Brawner for heading up the Registration and Tech, and also to Jerry Brawner and Jason Cook for making sure the track was in shape for racing, and for making sure everyone had what they needed as they arrived to the track and got their pits set up.  Thanks to Tina Parsley for helping in the booth and to QSAC Co-Chair Mike Sadler for helping me with the drivers meetings, and the QSAC rules and procedures.  Lastly, thanks to all of the racers for coming out for fun and fellowship at the Mini-Madhouse.  We had 47 cars sign in for the event, and I don't think anyone left disappointed.  I appreciate all of the positive feedback I received from the racers about the track and the event.  IQSR looks forward to hosting another QSAC event, and I hope to see all of you back at the track in the near future.

Photos are posted below of the winners.  You can access the full results by clicking on the Times tab above, or by clicking here.  You can also see many more photos of the other racers that took home awards, as well as concourse photos, and photos from the pits by clicking on the Photos tab above.

NCS Race #4 News

Ingalls Motor Speedway and IQSR are proud to host Round 4 of the 2012 QSAC NCS series.  We extend a warm welcome to all that make the journey to race with us at the Mini-Madhouse this coming weekend, as well as anytime you're in the neighborhood.  At the time of this posting, rumor has it we already have some out of town visitors at the track.  I look forward to an awesome weekend of racing and fellowship.

For those of you that may travel in an RV to the track, there are now (4) 30 amp hook ups at the track.  There are (2) on the light pole for turn #3, as well as (2) on the light pole in turn #1.  They are first come first serve.  There is plenty of room to get (2) RV's behind the scoring shack, and I ask that the first two that show up use those spots, that way it will be easier to get those positioned, and allow other racers to set up pits around you.  I don't think there will be any issues with soft ground this year, as we are like many others in the midwest and around the country, and are in the middle of a moderate to severe drought.  Please keep that in mind if you are a smoker, or are using a grill of any kind.  The ground is very dry, and the risk of fire is there.

The number one thing this weekend is to have fun.  IQSR is a very friendly group, so if you have questions, please don't be afraid to approach any of us.  Ingalls Motor Speedway is a short track and things can get intense, but at the end of the day, we are all in this to have fun, first and foremost.  I hope that is something that each of you take home this weekend.

See you all at the track

Jon Mason


Race #5 is in the books, and it was another great turnout.  We had 33 cars across the four classes.  Thanks to everyone for coming out and getting your racing fix at the Mini-Madhouse.  Thanks to Sonny, Allen, Mark, and Doug for making the trip from Illinois to race with us.  Race winners are pictured below.

Next up is the NCS race this coming weekend.  Qualifying kicks off Friday at 1 pm, with the track opening for practice at 9 am.  We will run the mains starting at 10:30 am on Saturday.  Hope to see all of the members representing the great club we have.  I will post the full schedule later tonite.

NCS News

Some good news for round four of the NCS! The extra fuel charge will be waved for this event. I was able to secure a great deal from our local VP racing headquarters. They have helped us in the past and came through again. We decided with the cost of travel and every thing else we would pass the savings on to you, the racer. Its not much but every little bit helps. The race fees will be the normal ncs fee minus the extra fuel charge. Fuel will be availabe Friday through Sat. We will be using VP 110. 


Thanks Todd

Race #4 - 6-30-12

We had another great turnout out the Madhouse on June 30th.  We had 26 cars come out for some Saturday night short track action.  Unfortunately, we had to shorten the program after a short rain delay during qualifying, followed by a long delay after the first round of heats.  We were forced to cancel the second round of heats, and move directly into the mains, which were all shortened to 75 laps. The winners are pictured below.  I have also posted lap times and updated the points.

See you all this Saturday night for another round at the Madhouse.  The following week, IQSR will host NCS Race #4 so everyone bring out the cars this coming weekend for a final tune-up before the big race!  We need all of our members to come out and welcome the racers from across the country, and to show everyone how exciting racing at the Madhouse can be!

Race #3 Points and other news

Race #3 was our first night race of the year, and it was great to get back under the lights.  The track was fast, even in the heat of the day.  As you may have already noticed, points have been updated and as of today, I have also uploaded the lap times. 

A couple items were discussed at the drivers meeting that I would like to go over here for anyone who missed them.  First and foremost, there will be racing on the Big Paved Oval at the Marion County Fairgrounds during the fair.  There will be a race this coming Sunday, June 24th, Tuesday night, June 26th, and Friday night, June 29th.  Stay tuned for exact times.  Derek Belcher is organizing the races, so thanks to him for continuing to try and give the sport some great exposure.  I have heard that it is quite a spectacle to see the fans line the fence for the Friday night race especially, so come out and support Derek's and others efforts to keep Quarter Scale Racing on the Big Paved Oval, and help put on a great show for some potential new fans!   

Secondly, we are going ahead with the Brick Winners Circle in the infield.  We will open up the opportunity for anyone that wishes to purchase a brick and have it included in the Winners Circle.  I am in the process of determining exactly how many lines of text and characters we can have on each brick, and as soon as I get the information, I will compile an application to submit the information that we will need to have the bricks engraved.  We will take applications for the rest of this season, and then install the bricks at the end of the season.  I hope to have a design to share at the next race, which will also determine the maximum number of bricks that we can have.  

Victory Lane Photos are below.  Congrats to Race #3 Winners Chris Brawner, Todd Holloway, Jason Cook, and Jeremy Brawner.  Thanks also goes out to Holloway Vinyl Signs and Graphics for the new sign on the backstretch, it turned out great!

Cookies Race Recap ( race from may 12th 2012)

  First edition of CCR (Cookies Race Recap) of 2012. Sorry it took so long . I have a 2 yr old that is taken up all my time .This is from May 12th and the recap from last Saturday is in the works.

   The 2012 season at the (world famous) Ingalls Motor Speedway (IMS) kicked off May 12th . it was a picture perfect day in the heart of Central Indiana. We had (31) entrys throughout the four (4) classes. The day began with a intense inspection process as our new tec inspector went through each and every car and did a great job talking to the the racers and explaining any and all question that they had. Dave Brawner stepped up to the plate to insure we all have a equal playing field.

   "THE SMALL TOWN PIZZA BUSH SERIES"
            We start out this first edition if (CCR) as always with the Bush Boys. The (STP) Small Town Pizza pole award went to new comer Tim Creech in his #98 car with a time of 6.823. Donnie Hargraves returns to IMS in his #66  and comes home 2nd with a time of 6.923. Rounding out the top (3) in time trials was the #32 of Chris Brawner. the day was cut short due to the threat of rain so the powers that be put it up to vote and all the racers agreed to just run one (1) round of heat action.

             Creech and Hargraves win their respected heats and Line up in the top two (2) spots for the main. Brawner lines up 3rd followed by #55 J.R Parsley  and #73 Steve Koser rounds out the top five (5). We take the green and we get our first of many cautions as Brawner makes short work of Hargraves to take 2nd. Lap (5) Creech spins and hands the lead to Brawner. GF (Green Flag) Brawner gets out to a big lead until lap (17) when Creech and new comer Rusty Frady in the #30 get together. RS (Re Start) on lap 21 and Creech charges back up to 4th. Quick YF (Yellow Flag) and we get back to racing with Brawner leading followed by Parsley, Koser and Creech / 98 by koser for 3rd and Creech continues his charge back to the front / Meanwhile we get our 2nd lead change as Parsley powers his #55 by Brawner. Koser starts to struggle with the handling on his 73 as he brings out a couple quick YFs. Coing up on half way and the GF is back out / Creech by Brawner for 2nd / top (3) nose to tail when Koser spins and they head into the pits for fuel. 50 TO GO / GGG ( Green Green Green) Brawner closes up on Creech / 98 in the grass in 3&4 / 32 gets into the 98 / TO THE TAIL for both. We reset the field coming to lap (55) / Parsley leading follwed by Koser, #23 Dave Hamstra, Brawner and Creech all on the lead lap. 32 takes the 23 / leader spins as does Koser  and both sent TO THE TAIL.

Parlsley pushing his hot rod to its limits in the closing laps of this race was involed in a couple of accidents and the end result was the end of Hamstras day.( tough Luck 23 you looked good). We get us a (10) lap shootout as Creech wanting to get his first career Madhouse feature win but the guy in the 32 wants his first Main victory......... GGG and Brawner roles out to lead all the way to the CF (checker flag) . Chris ( Chocolate) Brawner Wins his first EVER  feature at IMS.   Creech comes home 2nd with the 55 and 73 round out the four cars on the lead lap.

Sorry for the delay, but I have posted lap times from our first race, which was actually race #2 because of the rain out.

Based on the length of the program during that race, we will start qualifying at 4 pm on Saturday for this first night race.  With the new class we are running this year, I think the programs are going to be a little longer than they were last year and we need to be completed before 11 pm.  Please make sure to pass this info along to anyone you guys know that may not have access to this information.

See you all on Saturday!

Race #2 - 5/12/12

Our first race of 2012 is under our belts and all in all, I think it was a great day for everyone. We had 31 cars across 4 classes, WOW! What a great turnout for a holiday weekend! We got started a little late, thanks to a couple issues getting the scoring system ready for the new class, but we were able to get through it, and now that it is set up we should not experience it in the future. Mother nature got in my head a little, and with rain in the area, we as a group decided to shorten the program. Even with one less heat race, I for one had a very good time racing with everyone in the Sportsman class, and also enjoyed watching the other classes mix it up. I certainly look forward to the exciting times we will have this year at the "Mini-Madhouse".

 I would like to extend many thanks to all that helped put on a great show yesterday. Special thanks to Patti Pedigo for her help in getting everyone signed up and also to Dave Brawner for taking on the huge responsibility of technical director. Both did a great job yesterday. Thanks to Tina, Cookie, J.R., and Todd for helping in the booth calling and scoring races. Not only is it a big help to me personally, it is great to have several people that know how the booth and scoring system run, so that when unexpected things arise, we can help each other and still have a smooth program.

 I have posted the results and points. You can access them by clicking on the points tab at the top of the page, or by clicking here. You will see points for two (2) heat races, even though we only ran one (1) per class. Heat points count double when we only run one round. I will leave the complete recap for Cookie later this week, but congratulations to our winners. Todd Holloway took home the checkers in the first ever Super Late Model feature, Jerry Brawner continued his winning ways in the Sprints, newcomer Jeremiah Ward took home the victory in Sportsman, and last but not least Chris Brawner got his first IQSR victory in the Bush Class. I forgot to snap victory lane photos this week, my apologies to the the winners. I will take them at the next race and post them with the winners from Race #3.

 I'll get lap times posted in the next couple days. Thanks again to all that came out and enjoyed the day with us, I am more excited than ever to be a part of such a great club. I know we will have many more great races and good times this year!

Tomorrows Race is Cancelled

I have been watching the weather reports over the last couple days, and it appears that Mother Nature is going to get the better of us this time. The reports that I am looking at show a 60-70% chance of rain, coupled with temperatures that are going to be in the low 50's. This just doesn't seem like it is worth the risk, so with that said, I am cancelling the race for tomorrow. The make up day will be August 25th, which is the first rain date that was built into the schedule. The next race is May 12th, and I am looking forward to seeing all of you then. Jon

Madhouse Monthly (March 2012)

The 2012 season at the World Famous (Mini Madhouse) is approaching at a rapid pace. I'm sure all the IQSR drivers and teams are hard at work getting them hot rods ready. Track over all in good shape from our mild Indiana winter. The Ingalls community is in for a stellar summer of GREAT short track action.

Only news I have to report is on the Park Board meeting that Preident Mason and Tressure Patty Pedigo presented the park with the largest check in track history. Standing O to all that made that possible. Also discussed was the signing of a new 10 year lease with the town. Happy to report the Town and Park love us being apart of their tight nit community and look forward to many years of the (Madhouse). I do believe talks between the local schools, fire depatatment and other organizations about teaming up with IQSR to do some special events together over the 2012 season. Hope to know more in time for the April edition of the "Madhouse Monthly".

All over this wonderful country of ours ( and A HUGE thank you to the Men and Woman out there fighting to keep it wonderful) Racers and manufactures alike are hard at work getting ready for the season to start. Some have already began racing in 2012.Lucky Dogs. We at Ingalls welcome and look foward to seeing all the magnificent chassis out and beating and banging at the (Madhouse). We here in Indiana are proud to be part of QSAC.

I'm hoping to get interviews with the new owners of WCM and a invitation goes out to all manufacts to send me a shout and I would be happy to inform the masses of the work and progress your company's are doing for the 2012 season and beyond.

Thank you for reading .........Jason (6) Cook.....

Madhouse Monthly

Greetings all. For 2012 I will lending a hand with our website. This will be a slow process as we all know I am not the sharpest tool in the shed. Having access to the site will allow me to post news, results, pics and the of course ( back by popular demand) "Cookies Race Recap".

Would like to take this time and congratulate the newly elected Vice President Dave ( Snake ) Brawner (perfect nickname for a politician) . Todd Holloway and John Foster will make great board members as they both have been dedicated IQSR members over the years. Mrs Pedigo for stepping up to take care of our funds. Last but not least starting his second year as our leader Jon Mason. Congrats to all of you and it is clear our little club is in the right hands.

The whole IQSR family would like to send out a thank you to Randy Brown and John Smith of " S&P Motorsport s" for allowing us to come down to his booth at the "Indy Circle Track Expo" and letting us promote the " Mini Madhouse". From what I hear it was a total success. I personally would like to thank Dave Brawner for stepping up and filling in for me as I was the one that was suppose to go. I know he did a 10Xs better job then I could have done .

Stay tuned for updates and news in the weeks to come.

Thank You

Brick infield winners circle!

Happy New Year to all. It was a rough year for lots of people in 2011 lets hope 2012 turns out better for so many. When the Mini Madhouse was being built Mike Johnson and Rick Gauger and others put together a plan to raise funds to buy the things we as a club needed. At the time some people donated different things including time, money, ideas etc. Along the way we as a group collected money to help with things by selling engraved bricks to build a winners circle so to speak in the infield. We had people from our club and lots of other clubs purchase these. As time went buy and people left the club and new ones entered this was over looked and forgotten about, by no ones fault. While I was still the president it was brought to my attention that we had over looked this. The next problem was to find a list of the people that we owed this to for there generosity way back then. I got a phone call this weekend from Mike Johnson that he had found the list with all the names from the past and present on there. I talked to Jon Mason about us going ahead with this plan as the money to do this will not be much, plus how cool would be to see this winners circle with all the names. This would also be a good time to sell more of these to all of our new members that we have picked up over the years. This would really add a cool touch to our track and continue to help promote our club and track and any of us that race there. The money raised can be added to the re-paving fund. I'm not sure off the top of my head what the cost was but it was very affordable. If we sell just a couple more bricks it would pay for us to do the work. Be very cool to do this this spring before our NCS race. We could even add a brick that depicts the start of the club and the start of the track itself. I will have more info once I get a hold of the paper from Mike. Thanks
