Worst Figure 8 Crash @ Slinger Super Speedway Ever!!!!! 9/11/2011
This is a video of the worst figure 8 Crash Ever @ Slinger Super Speedway. Ryan Lovald just bought Shane the Shark Beckers car and this was the first race racing that car. Ryan Lovald hit Rick Bruskiewicz right behind the Right Front Tire and Ryan Rolls. BOTH DRIVERS WALKED AWAY. You can here a scream right as the hit happens. That was Nicki, Ryans Fiance. You can see a black smoking dot to the right of Ryans car as well that is his motor, the motor came out of the car. Ryan was wearing his INTERSECTION CONNECTION shirt he just made up as well. That was a connection. Ryans knee was hurting and Rick had a small cut. What happened with me in the race was going into turn 3, Bill Shavlik ran into me and knocked my car into neutral which you will here on the in car camera video, I then tried to move up the track to get out of the way and Scott Goetzke was going around me which I didnt see, We joked before the race about hitting eachother and me getting even from the beginning of the year, I never knew he was there. He then slammed me a few times before spinning out and hitting the rollover ramp. I would have done the same thing to him if the tables were turned there so I understood why he hit me back. I then pulled up next to him at the start finish line. We talked and I explained what happened in my car. Scott understood and we shook hands. No big deal there. Its funny now cause everyone thought myself and Scott were fighting but we were really just talking about what actually happened and getting on the same page. I want to thank everyone that was a fan of the cop car. I will most likely not be driving it next year and it is sold. I know pretty much everyone just likes the car and doesnt even know who I am so you will be happy to know it will be coming back as the cop car next year, just with a different driver. It was a blast and I might do this again in the future but for now I'm done. I want to thank my sponsors that have been with me from the beginning of me racing. Guerndt's Bar in St. Lawrence, Keiths Marina, Kettle Moraine Properties (Bob Hart) P.W. Walsh, Race and Street Graphics and Daves Lanes of Hartford. Figure 8's are a blast and it is a testament to the safety equipment in race cars that with a wreck like what happened in this video, they can walk away. Thank You again.... Brandon Wolf.

Spedeworth Banger Racing - The Early Years - Photos & Cine Film
Managed to save the cine film to Video before all the equipment was dissposed of a few years ago. Then I realised this was really just the start off point for Spedeworth Banger racing on a regular format so put together this explanation. Sorry for any quality loss but it has been converted from cine to video then to DVD and then onto youtube and of course its 40 years old in most cases. Like to think its worth saving as archive material at least. I took all the photos & cine film except for some my dad took as I was out there driving as # 562 (1974, 75 & 76 ) Apologies to any Spedeworth fans who dont like Bangers. Sadly whilst compiling this I heard the news that Les Eaton had died in January. Without him there would be no Spedeworth, but thats another story altogether.
