From the pages of Facebook, The Beltway has jumped on board to post a Best Appearing Midget enticement to the teams to shine up their entry into this year’s Rumble. The annual mid-winter event will be staged inside the massive Allen County War Memorial Coliseum & Expo Center, on a purpose-built 1/6 mile concrete oval.

 

The Beltway features weekly live, friendly fun 1/64th scale stock car, truck, street stock, modified and sprint car racing in unique competition. Race fans are encouraged to follow The Beltway on Facebook to join in on the fun this winter.

 

Rumble staff members and media members in attendance will hand select three Midgets that they feel meet the criteria of being best appearing. Those three cars will be placed before the fans for vocal response. The loudest reaction will determine the winner of The Beltway Best Appearing Midget $250 bonus.

 

The Midgets will be joined by North Baltimore Custom Cuts winged 600 midgets, LiUNA non-winged 600 midgets, multiple classes of go-karts and Baker Racing Engines Quarter Midgets in full racing programs Friday and Saturday of the Rumble weekend.

 

Advance tickets are available through any Ticketmaster outlet or at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum box office, and on race-day.

PREMIERE TRANSPONDER TIMING & SCORING TO TACKLE RUMBLE

Modern Technology Adds to Rumble Experience for Race Teams & Fans

 

FORT WAYNE, IN (December 4, 2022) – Long a staple at race operations throughout the industry, transponder timing and scoring will be put into action for this year’s 24th edition of the Rumble in Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales, December 30 & 31.  Premier Transponder Timing and Scoring has been contracted to service the popular indoor racing event, conducted inside Fort Wayne’s Allen County War Memorial Coliseum & Expo Center on a purpose built 1/6 mile concrete oval.

 

“We have probably been behind the times,” commented Rumble owner/promoter Larry Boos.  “Coming from the ‘old school’, we have been very fortunate to have some of the best hand scorers in the industry work with us at the Rumble, and due to their loyalty, I have been reluctant to move to the more modern transponder system. But the time has come to adopt the change. My hats off to the scoring teams that have done such an admirable job over the course of the years.”

 

Premiere Transponder Timing & Scoring is a full-service provider to all forms of motorsport, as well as active sports. Owned and operated by Kevin Greer since 1998, the business has seen the need for transponder-based timing grow each year.  What started as 24 transponders at a small go kart track in southern Michigan, has grown into multiple systems and year-round contract service to tracks, sanctioning bodies, and special events across the country.

 

“My history with the Rumble in Fort Wayne goes back many years, and my involvement has included being a competitor as well as in administrative roles,” stated Greer. “To be invited to offer timing and scoring services to this prestigious winter event is an honor and a responsibility that my team takes very seriously. The multi-division event is fast-paced, and we are prepared with the technology and organization that our clients have come to expect.”

 

Each of Rumble divisions will utilize transponders. These include the Midgets, N. Baltimore Custom Cuts winged 600 Midgets, LiUNA non-winged 600 Midgets, go karts and Baker Racing Engines quarter midgets. All of the timing and scoring will be available to the race teams and fans on My Race Pass and Race Monitor,

 

Rumble in Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales tickets are available through any Ticketmaster outlet or at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum box office, and on race-day.

RUMBLE SENIOR CHAMP KARTS TO CHASE FOR $2,000 PAYDAY FRIDAY NIGHT

D-Low Truck Antes Up Huge Payday to Remember Tom & Karen Magnabosco

 

FORT WAYNE, IN (December 2, 2022) – When the Senior Champ division of kart racing rolls into the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum Friday night December 30, for leg #1 of the Rumble in Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales they will be chasing after a massive $2,000 payday.

 

Dominic Phillips, through his Morris, IL based D-Low Trucking company, released the exciting news this afternoon.  “My grandparents, Tom & Karen Magnabosco of Joliet, IL, got me into kart racing and it has been one heck of ride. I couldn’t be where I am in karting without them and their encouragement,” cited Phillips.  “I am thankful and beyond thrilled to be able to use this marquee event to memorialize my loved ones, grandpa, and grandma. I know they will be looking down with huge smiles.”

 

While most of the kart divisions competing at the Rumble are ‘flat’ karts with the driver fully exposed, the Senior Champ karts have a full cage built into the frame. The addition of the cage, with the additional top-heavy weight and stiffness of the frame, has a unique effect on the handling of the karts.  Through the years of the Rumble, the Senior Champs have always provided interesting, down-to-the-wire racing.

 

“Senior Champs at the Rumble are amazing,” continued Phillips. “The level of competition among the drivers is unparalleled and with the $2,000 prize money my D-Low Trucking company is posting, the carrot hanging before them will set a new standard for the Senior Champ drivers.”

 

Joining the Senior Champ karts both nights (Dec. 30/31) will be six other divisions of karts, multiple divisions of Baker Racing Engines quarter midgets, full-sized midgets, North Baltimore Custom Cuts winged 600 Midgets and LiUNA non-winged 600 Midgets, in full racing programs.

 

Rumble in Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales tickets are available through any Ticketmaster outlet or at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum box office, and on race-day.
