• Donna Lane interview clip2:26

JT Stapp has many many sponsors and he requested an end of season interview so he could thank each one.  The list is long and JT couldn't race without them.  

The audio clip below is of a question I asked on the open mic.  I asked what music they listen to on the way to the track to get them in the zone?  Taylor Swift, Christmas Music and Give Me Some Lovin'!

2016 UMRA King of the TQ Midgets Champion, Jason Setser & The Cure Starts Now Foundation Team & 12s TQ

Look at the back of a penny, can you see President Lincoln sitting there?  Well, you can with this optical machine at Purdue Polytechnic Columbus.  The photo to the left is the machine and the photo below is the image of Lincoln on the back of the penny that the machine captured.  Just some of the fun they are having in class.  Caleb even got to build a rc race car with the 3D machine to help satisfy his need for spped during the off race season. And, now he is working on a set of robots that will battle in a sword fight.  Yes, all a part of his grade!

If you are short on time listen to the audio clip, but make sure you come back to hear the complete interview with racing champ many times over, Gary Herbert and his team mate for life, Sharon .  Gary's brother Daryl Herbert is an accomplished racer and Gary's grandson Kyle Herbert is following in their footsteps

Talented Hinchcliff, dancer and driver!  This photo is of him on Dancing with the Stars!

The family that races together stays together, well that could very well be the moto of the Herberts above and the Lanes featured here.  Donna Lane broke the barriers and gained access to the race pits at Mt. Lawn to assist her husband as part of his race team.  She soon managed to pilot her own race car, but was only allowed then to compete with the women.  LETSGORACN.NET Correspondent Johnny Brown talked with Ralph and Donna Lane about their racing career.  Many may not know, but Ralph and Donna are a great couples dacing team too.  Ralph is the go to man when it comes to race cars in the Decatur County Indiana area and beyond. He can build the roll cage and apply a show car paint job and anything in between,absolutely everything to a race car except make the wraps. The photos shown here are of Donna racing photos and as many of Ralphs race cars that we could find.

  • JT Stapp end of season12:12

Can you believe that there was actually a time when women were not allowed in the race pits?  LETSGORACIN.NET's correspondent Johnny Brown talks with Greensburg's former Mayor Gary Herbert and former first lady of Greensburg, Sharon, about that exact fact.  When Gary and Sharon had their first date she had to go sit in the grandstands to watch him race.  The race pits were off limits.  A lot has changed since that first date back in the 60's.  Provided here is an audio clip and the full interview in 2 parts, enjoy!

Peyton's Angels Indiana Chapter of The Cure Starts Now is a group dedicated and inspired by Peyton Whittington who was diagnosed with DIPG on June 17, 2012. Sadly he passed away in June 2013.

The Cure Starts Now Cancer Research Foundation (501c3 Federal Non-Profit) is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult.
