Neil Knuth

With a heavy heart we are sad to announce the passing of a former racecar driver that we have known for many years. Super Late Model driver Neil Knuth of Monticello, MN passed away on Tuesday September 22nd. Knuth traveled from South Dakota to race Modifieds at the Fergus Falls Raceway for several years. He would later move to Monticello and continued to make the trek to Fergus Falls nearly every week. Eventually he switched to a Super Late Model that he raced at the Fergus Falls Raceway and the I-94 Raceway in Sauk Centre. Neil is best remembered for his love of racing and the sportsmanship that he extended to all his fellow competitors and his fans.

The Funneral is scheduled for 2 PM Saturday Sept. 26th at the Peterson-Grimsmo Chapel in Monticello. Visitation will be held from Noon until 2 PM.

Danica to Nascar in 2010.

Tony Stewart has said that Danica told him that NASCAR is "what she wants to do." Sounds like she will re-sign with her IRL team for next year and run a limited schedule of NASCAR Nationwide series & Camping world Truck series races in 2010 with a long-term goal of racing full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series.

Who she will race for has not been announced yet, Stewart-Haas racing seems to be the favorite to supply her Sprint Cup cars but she will need to align herself with a different team to race in the NASCAR Nationwide or Truck series.

Details will be announced soon... here is an article from this summer that sums up my views on Danica coming to NASCAR. I have no doubt that she will have sucess after 10-15 starts when she gets the feel of the much heavier stock-cars.

June 30 2009.. by Jason D Searcy (
Danica to NASCAR in 2010?
I think Danica Patrick will be racing in the NASCAR Sprint cup series in 2010, most likely for Hendrick Motorsports. It just makes too much financial sense.Strike while the iron is hot! Danica Patrick is at the peak of her INDY Car career.. now is the time to move.

According to, Danica earned only $7 million in 2008. That does not even compare to the $35 million Dale Jr made or even the $30 million Jeff Gord0n pulled in driving for Hendrick Motorsports. Danica will NEVER make that kind of money driving in the INDY Car series. Why do you think Juan Pablo Montoya, Sam Hornish, Patrick Carpentier, Dario Franchitti and even AJ Allmendinger moved from Indy Cars to NASCAR? Because the pay was better.You say that Hendrick Motorsports doesnt have a spot open. Maybe Dale Jr will start up his own Hendrick satellite team like Tony Stewart did this year, and that would open up a spot to bring Danica into the best equipment and crew money can buy.Hendrick can lure Go Daddy and other sponsors into paying top-price ad rates on her car plus all the added publicity that would go with it.

Would she race in NASCAR Sprint cup in 2010? You bet she would. Race as many NASCAR Truck series and NASCAR Nationwide series races as possible this year after the INDY Car series is over, drive a Cup car a couple times the end of the 2009 season and then start her full-time in a Sprint Cup car in 2010.I think it makes too much dollars and sense not to.
