DeGRAFF – Shady Bowl Speedway will open its doors tonight for the first time to the Indiana-based Kenyon Midget Series.
The series is named after Don and Mel Kenyon who have been involved in midget racing for over five decades. The last midget run at Shady Bowl was likely 20 years ago when Ed Adair brought his streak to town.
Ryan Newman, who had a stellar career in NASCAR, competed that day. The Kenyon Midgets have had two races so far in 2022, one on dirt and one on pavement. Trey Osborne is the current points leader. These two shows averaged 16 cars in hand.
The latest models from Dave Nagel Excavating LLC, Harrod Septic Solutions Compacts, Bullet Liners from Dayton Thunder Cars and Frazier and Parsons Designs FOMOCO Cruisers will also do battle.
Heats and sprints will start today at 6:30 p.m.
In the event of inclement weather, fans are advised to call the speedway (937-585-9456), visit the shadybowlspeedway.rocks website, or visit the Facebook page.
