Molly Rhoads on Speedtalk

Long time racer Molly Rhoads will be on "Speedtalk on 1360" with Jason and Dean this Saturday 10-11am April 17th on KRWC radio and

Molly started racing back in 1998 driving her brother AJ's Sportsmen car at Elko Speedway. We go to know Molly when she raced at I-94 Raceway and Fergus Falls raceway beginning in 2001. She raced Street stock, Super stock, Limited Late Model and then finally in the Super Late Model divisions. She earned many rookie-0f-the-year awards, sportsman of the year and most popular driver awards.

At I-94 Raceway in Sauk Centre we would arrange "driver autograph sessions" during intermission and we had to make sure Molly had a table all to herself because she would draw such a long line of fans.

In 2004 Molly was the first female driver to ever win a Late Model race at Raceway Park in Shakopee. She was chosen as one of only 16 drivers to try out for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program in 2006.

After helping Bryan Roach in the pits the last couple of years, Molly is back and looking to compete for a Super Late Model championship at Raceway Park in 2010.

Kelly Bires let go from JR Motorsports

By Jason D Searcy (

April 13 2010

Wisconsin Nationwide series driver Kelly Bires has been let go from the JR Motorsports #88 car owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Kelly Bires has had only one top 10 finish in 2010 and that was a 7th place at Auto Club Speedway in California.

Jamie McMurray will drive some of the 2010 races in the #88, another driver has not yet been announced but it is very possible that long time MN dirt racer and ARCA winner Steve Arpin
will race a part-time schedule for JR Motorsports.

Dean and I broadcast a ASA Late Model race Kelly Bires was in at Elko back in 2006 on KRWC Radio.

He missed the drivers meeting with a migrane headache the morning of the race but was able to hit all his marks on the track that night for a dominating win.

I think Kelly does all the right things with the media, he is a good guy from the Midwest who deserves another ride with a good team.

*Landon Cassill from Iowa will continue to drive the #7 Nationwide car for JR Motorsports until Danica Patrick returns after the Indy Car season.
