You can call her the "Queen of Speed" or "Lady Lead- foot" but Sprint car racing's fastest female is planning on being called the next champion of the 9th Annual Jerry Richert Sr. Memorial Race this coming Saturday night the 12th of September at Cedar Lake Speedway.
Crew chief Mike Woodring has confirmed today that Erin Crocker- Evernham is pumped and excited to take on the best sprint car drivers of the upper-Midwest on the racy 3/8 high banked dirt oval.
Crocker-Evernham will have her work cut out for her on that evening as we are expecting stiff competition from the newly crowned Knoxville Champion "Hollywood" Herrera. We are also excited to announce that our 2003 & 2004 Jerry Richert Sr. Memorial Champion Terry McCarl will be back and ready to battle with the best of the Midwest. Mark Dobmeier is also scheduled to make an appearance and will be out to make up for the disappointment of last year's race where he ended the night in the trailer with a blown motor. Travis Whitney is another confirmed driver and is excited for the race. With time trials kicking the night off it will give him a shot of regaining his one lap record at a track that he loves racing at.
IRA President Steve Sinclair is also excited for this year's event and is confident that one of his regular travelling team's will be on the podium for this event. The current point leader going into this event is 2008 Champion is Billy Balog. Will there be an Aussie Outlaw in the field at this year's Memorial? ?????
