2 consecutive wins for Brian Campbell in the Bettenhausen Memorial 100.


Campbell and Anthony Danta waged a battle and Danta led until lapped cars
allowed Campbell to re-take the lead.


Two former Illiana track champs Paul Shafer Jr. and Eddie Hoffman (8) at war during
the 100 lapper.  Shafer Jr. finished 4th and Hoffman was 2nd.


2014 Illiana track champion Jeff Cannon (33) raced hard to a 3rd place finish.


Erik Darnell (7) would finish in 5th position.


Paul Shafer Jr. and John Nutley (96).  Nutley hung on for a 17th place finish.


Landry Potter (22) finished 22nd and Bobby Gash (21) had a 10th place finish.


Jack Kalwasinski racing his last race finished a very respectable 7th.
 His best finish ever in the Bettenhausen Memorial.


Jim Olson (24) finished 12th and Keith Tolf 19th.


John Senerchia was declared the winner of the Street Stock Challenge
after the top two finishers were DQ'd.




Former Bettenhausen winner Larry Schuler backed his car into the wall on his
qualifying attempt and failed to make the 100 lapper.


Veteran Illiana starter Tom White runs down the starting field as they pull away
for 100 laps!


Jack Kalwasinski and dad Stan smile nicely for the photographer before the
start of the Bettenhausen Memorial!


Legend racer Paul Goldsmith was interviewed on track
prior to the Bettenhausen by announcer Dave Alger.
"Goldy" won the Bettenhausen in 1963!


What pooch doesn't want to go for a ride?  John Nutley's lucky dog
got to go on a racetrack!


Racestar's "Little Racefan of the Week" is 6 year old future racer Lucas from Hebron, Indiana.
I say "future" because he's the son of midget driver Don Pettit!
