Driver interviews at Raceway Park from 2012

Jason Searcy did some interviews with drivers at Raceway Park in Shakopee (MN) in 2012 that were broadcast on KRWC 1360 AM radio in Buffalo MN.  The purpose of these interviews was to expose the drivers personalities to the general public, so these segments were not played during the Speed Talk on 1360 show, instead they were sprinkled into the regular daily programming on KRWC.

Mark Bronstad and Big Kids Racing was the sponsor of this segment along with Raceway Park, before its untimely closing in 2013.

Here are the links to all the segments on the Speed Talk on 1360 SoundCloud page.

Ryan Anderson ushers in a new era of Monster Jam

By Jason D Searcy

December 10, 2016





Dennis Anderson driving Grave Digger has been the King of Monster Jam throughout the entire Metrodome era.  That era is over and his son, Son-Uva Digger driver Ryan Anderson, has taken over the crown in a very non-traditional way at the new US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis (MN), he is just as much as an acrobat as a driver.


Ryan Anderson (above on right) absolutely thrilled the sold-out crowd with a display of two-wheeling tricks and totally intentional near wrecks.  The moves Anderson displayed looked more like something a BMX biker or a Freestyle Motocross racer would attempt.  He rode the corner on his two side wheels and even clipped a jump just with with his rear tire to create another unexpected move.  He won the Freestyle and nobody in the crowd even noticed he never attempted the back-flip.



Freestyle Judging Results:

Son-Uva Digger       36
Lucas Oil Crusader  35
FS1 Cleatus             34
Max D                     32
Hot Wheels              29
Monster Energy       28
Grave Digger           28
Mad Scientist          26
Scooby Doo            26
Zombie                    24
El Toro Loco            24
Thunder 4x4             21
Mohawk Warrior      15
Black OPS               12

While many of the drivers stuck to the conventional but Ryan Anderson just took Monster Jam to the next level in Freestyle a new era fitting for the new billion dollar stadium in Minnesota.  Linsey Weenk (below) in Lucas Oil Crusader almost swept the night, he did a great job in freestyle and stood up the truck after doing the back-flip.



Linsey Weenk in Lucas Oil Crusader won racing over Damon Bradshaw in Monster Energy by a mark of 18.629 to 18.831.


Becky McDonough (above) from Brainerd (MN) driving El Toro Loco did a great job in winning the Wheelie Contest after standing her truck up on the tailgate, shoving the truck in reverse and making a great save.


 Veteran driver Madusa (above), also originally from Minnesota, spoke on camera before the event, she was injured and unable to race this weekend but she thanked the crowd and hoped that her career has inspired some young female racers.

A founding father of the sport, Everett Jasmer from Ham Lake (MN) was also in attendance, he was introduced to the crowd and displayed his USA-1 Monster Truck, one of the first Monster Trucks to catch the eye of the public back in the 1980's.

The event started at 7:11pm and ended at 9:26pm.

Another Monster Jam show will be held Sunday afternoon at 3:30pm, tickets are still available.

It was also announced that another Monster Jam show will be held at US Bank Stadium on Saturday night February 11th, 2017.

A Powerful Tool That Is'nt In Your Toolbox




By Dean Reller
Thousands of years ago, man invented fire.  It’s said that later that day, he invented barbecue.  Fire, while feared at the racetrack, is a valuable tool that we overlook its value.  We cook, build, manufacture and control with it to make nearly everything we have.  Conversely, we destroy, dismantle, burn or injure things with it as well.  Controlled, it is one of the greatest tools that mankind has.  Uncontrolled, it can be one of the most destructive things we’ve ever discovered.
Flash forward in time and we have something not quite as spectacular, but a very similar type of tool that mankind has created.  It’s called Social Media.  That comes in several different forms, but can be used to create as well as destroy.  The only problem with this tool is the successes or failures aren’t as immediately visible.  As a race promoter, that being a track, driver or fan, it is one of the greatest things to come along in years.  The ability to interact is immediate.  A person can find out not only who won, but can see pictures and videos just seconds after it happens.  People can congratulate, thank and celebrate great moments in a person’s life very freely.  Racetracks and teams can use this positive engagement to promote races and race teams can generate excitement and build fan bases.  Not really thought of as a tool, like a wrench or a screwdriver, it’s very important for racing and its value is literally, virtually un-measurable.
However, the flip side of the coin and like that of fire, social media has the ability to destroy and dismantle.  Negative thoughts and comments on social media can be very destructive causing damage that could also be virtually un-measurable.  Recently, it was reported that negative fallout due to social media, partially contributed to a racetrack’s failure.  Although there was more than one factor that was to blame, it was certainly an eye opening moment that some thoughts and comments posted through social media could do that.  A bad night at the racetrack happens.  Things break, stupid things happen and once in a while it seems that everyone is out to get you.  As a race official and media member over the years, I can personally attest that you sometimes have one of those nights where you wished it rained and you could just go home.  Fortunately, those days are few and far between and the good days always outnumber the bad.
I’m not advocating people to just post positive only comments, but I caution everyone to consider choosing their words carefully.  Comments posted are virtual, but the people who read them are human.  One character flaw to humans is that we make mistakes.  In retrospect, a split second decision that happens during a race happens all the time.  There are no do-overs or replays, it happens and it happens quickly.  Comments and reactions are equally as quick and social media magnifies them.  So I caution people to take a breath before posting critical comments.  Much like that other tool (fire), let’s use social media to light the way and not get burned.
