When Eddie Tafoya junior and his crew got word that this Friday and Saturday night’s USAC/CRA Sprint Car Series races were canceled, they decided to hit the road. Instead of sitting idle, the team is headed to Brandon, South Dakota for this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday’s USAC Nationals at Huset’s Speedway. All three nights of action will feature the USAC National Sprint Cars and National Midgets.
The whole scenario was created last week when the Friday, July 8th race at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, California, and the July 9th race at the Stone Chevrolet Buick GMC Thunderbowl Raceway a few miles up the road in Tulare were both canceled. The reasons for the cancellations were drought and water restriction conditions, the current tire crisis facing all of racing, and the cost of fuel. The deletions created a six-week void in the USAC/CRA Series schedule before the next slated race at the Santa Maria Raceway on August 6th.
Tafoya has made several trips to Indiana to race in the national series over the past few years. However, this week’s races will be his first-ever in “The Mt. Rushmore State.” Huset’s Speedway, which opened in 1954, recently had a massive upgrade and is now considered one of the crown jewels of dirt tracks in the United States. The 1/3 mile banked oval is also one of the fastest in the country.
It will be Tafoya’s second trip to race in the Midwest in 2022. At the beginning of May, the Chino Hills, California driver went back for a two-night show at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in Ohio. Unfortunately, the team was within a couple of hours of its destination when it got word that the shows had been canceled due to heavy, persistent rains. That was the only trip to the Midwest the team had scheduled this year until the two cancellations were announced last week.
The 2019 USAC/CRA and USAC Southwest Series Rookie of the Year is having his best year to date racing 410 Sprint cars. In 12 starts in the USAC/CRA Series, Tafoya has placed in the top five, five times, and has been in the top ten nine times. Included is a second-place finish on January 29th at Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway and a third-place finish on another “Copper State” track, the Mohave Valley Raceway, on April 23rd. All told, the good finishes currently have him ranked fourth in USAC/CRA points and he has been closing in on third.
For fans who cannot make it to the race, all three nights will stream live on Flo Racing. Details are at https://www.floracing.com/.
Fans can follow Tafoya on Instagram @eddietafoya51. The same contact point can be used to purchase his great-looking shirts via mail.

The Council for Responsible Sport awarded a Silver certification to the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart becomes the second NASCAR event to earn this distinction behind the 2021 Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, certified earlier this year.
The Council for Responsible Sport is a not-for-profit organization with a vision to “embrace purpose through play” by certifying sporting events that have made progress to reduce their environmental footprint and increase positive impacts on their local communities and society.
“We are proud to be recognized by the Council for Responsible Sport as a certified responsible sporting event,” said AMS Executive Vice President Brandon Hutchison. “Our team works hard to collaborate with our partners and take positive action with events like the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart. We’re committed to hosting entertaining events while also taking steps towards a safer, healthier world.”
Through the independent third-party assessment and certification process, points are rewarded to events for: reducing and offsetting their carbon footprint, improving their water footprint, encouraging use of alternative transportation (i.e. mass transit), reducing printed materials, locally sourcing food and beverage, recycling, partnering with local non-profits, and addressing other environmental and social impacts.
“Race fans love racing, and we’ve learned they also care about the environment,” said Bree Sandlin, Vice President, Shell Lubricants North America Marketing. “Shell continues to work with our customers and industry partners so we all make progress together in the sustainability journey. We are proud of the collaboration with Speedway Motorsports and Atlanta Motor Speedway leadership for taking broad and measurable actions to secure Silver Certification for the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart.”
“Achieving Council for Responsible Sport Certification reflects the outstanding commitment and focus of both the whole team in Atlanta along with continued support of Shell to change the way races are staged,” said Kevin Phelan, Board Member for the Council.
The Council has helped to measure, manage, and verify the social and environmental impacts of events since 2007 with a focus on five pillars: planning & communications, procurement, resource management, access & equity, and community legacy.
“Certification reflects not only the clear desire to deliver the event in a more environmentally, socially and economically sustainable way but reflects the hard work and actions that deliver real change," added Phelan. "The Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart should be proud of this achievement.”
Notes to Editor
Through the independent third-party assessment and certification process, points are rewarded for the delivery of actions in multiple areas.
- Water use is measured, and initiatives are in place that reduce the environmental impact of water runoff and/or wastewater.
- Carbon footprint is calculated and offset, alternative and/or renewable energy sources are used.
- Mass transit on event day(s) is free or subsidized.
- Event has a formal access and equity policy.
- Plans for outreach to underrepresented group(s) in place.
- Accessibility service offered freely to participants and/or visitors.
- Event’s economic impact on the host county or city is measured.
- Locally owned businesses are promoted.
- Event partners with a non-profit organization to promote the mission of the organization through co-branding or publicity initiatives
- Formal plans to reduce an event’s environmental footprint and increase social impact.
- Choose sites that allow for the participation of people with disabilities
- Event publishes a sustainability report and has a written sustainable procurement policy.
- Locally grown or sustainably produced food and beverages are made available.
A few examples of how the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmartsecured points towards certification include:
- The Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart partnered with the Georgia Peanut Commission to promote and distribute locally grown peanuts at the track
- AMS offered water filling stations in the fan zone and on the concourse to ensure access to water and prevent the generation of single-use bottle waste.
- Folds of Honor brought out family members of military service members lost on the line of duty out for a free day at the race
- Henry County Sherriff’s Office brought local underserved youth out to the track for a free day of inspiration and fun through the Fuel for Success program
- Quaker State purchased Operation BBQ Relief rub, a company with a mission to feed first responders and communities affected by natural disasters. Shell purchased 504 bottles of the rub and provided them as giveaways to guests and attendees.
- Quaker State developed a "virtual cookout" tailgating experience that was attended by 194 stakeholders. There were no printed materials utilized and attendees were also given the option to “opt out” of receiving the mailed gift box during their registration process, to further reduce material consumption.
Other major sporting events in the U.S. that have been recognized at this level include the Waste Management Phoenix Open PGA tournament, the men’s and women’s NCAA Final Four® basketball championships, and the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.

While Mother Nature took the fireworks out of the sky, the drivers put a show on the track for Round 5 of the Cook Out Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway presented by Cabarrus Brewing. Connor Zilisch (VP Racing Semi-Pro division) and Darren Krantz Jr. (Bandolero Bandits) were among the drivers claiming stars and stripes victories one day after the Fourth of July.
Zilisch Outruns the Rain in the VP Racing Semi-Pro Competition
The VP Racing Semi-Pro feature showcased Trevor Wester’s speed as he led the competition for the first six laps until a restart gave Connor Zilisch room to take control. The second caution of the night gave the lead back to Wester who maintained it for five more trips around the frontstretch quarter-mile. On a third restart, Zilisch took the inside corner of turn two at lap 12 to pass Wester for good in a race to outrun the weather. Lightning in the area caused the race to be called at lap 19, giving Zilisch the win.
Krantz Jr Battles Bandolero Bandits for Second Win
In the Bandolero Bandits division, Hudson Canipe started at the front with an intense battle behind him among Ben Morabito, Darren Krantz Jr. and Beckham Malone. Canipe maintained his lead until lap 16 when Owen Zacharias blew a tire to bring out a yellow flag. Canipe and Morabito battled side by side after the restart before contact sent Canipe spinning sideways and out of contention. On the subsequent restart, Krantz Jr. passed Morabito for the lead off turn 4 on lap 18, then cruised to victory for his second Cook Out Summer Shootout win.
Krantz Jr. is now five for five in podium finishes at Charlotte Motor Speedway this summer including a first place win in Round 2.
Cook Out Summer Shootout fun continues with Round 6 on Tuesday, July 12. “Night of Games” at America’s Home for Racing will feature a full slate of fun and games with thrilling Legend Car and Bandolero action.
