“Intimidator 100 Presented by Boyne Machine Company”

(Kalamazoo, Mi) The Kalamazoo Speedway will kick off its 2012 racing
season featuring the ever popular “Intimidator 100 Presented by Boyne
Machine Company” for the Outlaw Late Models this upcoming Saturday
night. The Kalamazoo Speedway will be entering its twelfth season
under Gary and Donna Howe as the promoters of Michigan’s only NASCAR
sanctioned short track. The racing program will also feature the Super
Stocks, Pro Stocks, Cyber Stocks and the return of the Mini Stocks
after 14 year absences from the high banks of the world famous
Kalamazoo Speedway.

The Outlaw Late Models will be the highlight of the evenings racing
event featuring a 100 lap feature. The event started off as the
traditional season starting event for the track called the “Are the
Nuts and Bolts Tight 100″ which was started by former track owners
Marty and Callie Sue Jones. Shortly after the passing of NASCAR star
Dale Earnhardt, Sr. track officials renamed the event. This year’s
event will pay $2,500 to the winner of the race. Some of the top stars
from the area will be featured in this event such as Phil and Andy
Bozell, Terry Senneker, Jr., Steve Needles, Tom Thomas, Todd
Harrington, Mark Shook, and many other traveling stars fighting it out
for the cash.

The show will also mark the first time the Mini Stocks returning to
weekly action at the Kalamazoo Speedway since the 1998 season. That
season Bob Stoner was the first and only track champion in that class.
This season we will see a variation of second generation drivers,
rookies, and veteran drivers. The class will see young stars in the
making such as Andrew Brest and Noah Gallandt will battle it out with
the likes of Matt Gross, Steve Potter, Matt Morton, Eric Fraizer, Josh
Dunnick, and Frank Stager. The Cyber Stocks will see Logan Knight,
Dale Leonard, Maggie Zwart, and the other upcoming stars of the
Kalamazoo Speedway.

The biggest question of the 2012 season is who isn’t driving a Super
Stock? Defending champion Matt Corliss will have his hands full with
Tommy Wright, Kenny Head, and Brandon Lyons all former Late Model
Drivers. The class will also see its fair share of Rookies featuring
Lindsey Katz making her move over from the Modified class. The Pro
Stocks will see a tough battle with Lloyd Brooks trying to capture his
first ever title in the class. He will have to fend off many other
stars such Daton Wright, Keith Wilfong, Bob Metheny, and many more.

The gates will open at 12:00pm with the first practice starting at
2:30pm with racing starting at 7:00pm. Adults tickets are $15, 10-15
$10 , Children 9 and under are free for most Kalamazoo Speedway
events. Please visit our website at www.kalamazoospeedway.com for
