  • I-77 Speedway opens 2012 season...by Mark Huey

    What is a "Pepsi Blowout?" For inquiring minds, no, it is not a flat tire on a Pepsi truck on the interstate. It is the grand reopening of the I-77 Speedway, on S.C. Highway 9 in Richburg. So, I have just one question…ARE YOU READY TO GET YOUR DIRT ON?

  • I-77 Speedway re-opening...by Mark Huey

    How often have you heard, or maybe even are guilty of saying, "There just ain't nothing to do in Chester?" Anyone? If you have, then you are invited to read about what is about to happen in the heart of your great county.
    Look through the photo albums or scrapbooks of many Chester County residents and you just might find clippings from The News & Reporter about family athletes. These local figures could be from a wide variety of sports -- from baseball to football, to soccer and basketball, to golf to fishing…well, just about any sport.

  • Merrell gets first ARCA win

    Matt Merrell had already lost the lead off of pit road once, and after finishing second at Berlin Raceway two years earlier, the Texan seemed destined for runner-up honors again in the Hantz Group 200.
     
    194 laps, however, do not make a complete race, and that's a fact Merrell kept in mind as he powered past Tim George Jr. on a Lap 195 restart to take the lead, an advantage he would hold over the final six laps to win at Berlin and take his first victory in 23 career ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards starts.
