Race 1 - 2021

Aeon Racing Series

In the media this week...

  • Press Release: After a good deal of speculation, Yooperland Speedtraps will bring back Gunther Heindrickson and Fireplug Fitzpatrick for the upcoming iStock Developmental season. While Heindrickson secured his status with a victory at Daytona Beach, Fitzpatrick was seriously contemplating retirement before the final race at Fort Worth. His 9th-place finish in that race put him in 35th for the season. "Fireplug came to us prior to the last race and said 'If I can't place well in this race, I'm not going to come back,'" A Yooperland official said. "After the race, I came up to him and asked if he was still thinking of retirement, and he said, 'I'm not sure.' Then, I told him to take all the time he needed to figure out what you want to do. "Then Fireplug called me a couple days later and said he'd like to come back but that this will be his last season. We agreed, and we'll be looking at finding another driver to take the #77 car after the 2021 season."
  • Brad Mills, new to the racing series, appears in a new TV commercial advertising the start of the season. This obviously spurs him on to do well.
  • Robert Hicks is interviewed after completing his laps for the week. "I always challenge myself to do well, but especially here at my debut; I had a good week, looking forward to a good race."
  • Manne Love has a poor time as the newly independent racer is cited for a parts violation during qualifying and dropped down the grid as a result.
  • Turk Hossbender has a fantastic final period after a largely quiet week. The debutant steals pole on his last run. "I've never felt better in a car than I did today: everything I wanted it to do, it DID."
  • Race Practise was successful for Tamauria Spiders and Lefty Louis, who gain temporary skills this week.
