  Ryan Blaney won again in the NASCAR Cup Series, this time at Pocono.  He's on a hot streak as of late.  Up next: The Historic Brickyard 400.  Quite honestly, in years past, the racing at the 2.5 mile legendary track has been very dull. That is why they changed it to the road course. However, with the new Cup car there could be some side-by-side racing. Let's hope is is better!  Time is winding down to get into the playoff field. The pressure is mounting!  The same goes for the Xfinity and the Craftsman Truck Series. Louisville's Ben Rhodes finished 18th at Pocono. He did pick up some needed playoff points.  If the truck series playoffs started today, Ben would make it in on points.







After a strong 4th place finish in the ARCA event at Charlotte over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, Southern Indiana's Will Kimmel (Pictured above) is gearing up to race again in ARCA.  In less than two weeks on July 27th the stars of the ARCA series return to the half-mile banked track at Salem.  "We're excited to take the green flag at Salem. Our car looks good. We'll be ready"  Kimmel told Kentuckiana Motorsports.  He is a two-time Salem champion in late model style cars. Kimmel will race other ARCA events later this year, including the big track at Michigan.   Kimmel is a solid veteran. He could do much more if he had more sponsors. In short: money!  Will and his father help drivers wanting to race at a higher level of racing.  One such case is Scott Melton. They've prepared his ARCA cars for years, as well as a powerful late model car too.  At Daytona this year, Kimmel Racing  put together a strong ARCA car for Gil Linster.  The European racer finished 7th in his first ARCA race at Daytona.  Driver Development is important for racers at all levels. Will Kimmel has battled in NASCAR Cup, Xfinity, Craftsman Truck, ARCA, and regional-local racing series. Learn more about what they do at:  You can also call the Clarksville, Indiana based race shop,  Kimmel Racing at 812- 944-0444.   Will's father, Bill Kimmel has won many championships as a crew chief and when he first started his career, was a driver himself including in NASCAR.   

 We're in the heat of July.  Local track and various divisions have some pretty close points battles.  Barring issues with mother nature, the Sportsdrome Speedway has a full slate of action heading into the fall. It is just 5 minutes from downtown Louisville off Interstate 65 in Southern Indiana.  As mentioned above, the stars of ARCA will be at the Salem Speedway, July 27. The historic track is about an hour from Louisville in Southern Indiana. Other area tracks are the Ponderosa Speedway in central Kentucky at Junction City near Danville, Beech Bend in Bowling Green (KY), and just outside of Louisville in West Point Kentucky is the Ohio Valley Dragway. We encourage you to check social media pages weekly for last minute updates, weather info, and ticket specials.  

     In 2024, Kentuckiana Motorsports will continue to have fun and provide information on all levels of racing.  Lucas Oil has been and continues to be a major sponsor of what we do. coverage for more than two decades.  Kentuckiana Motorsports started with a half hour program and specials on cable, then a major television channel, and as media has transformed, online and social media. Lucas Oil  loves racing too! They support local and grass roots. Always have. We remind you to make sure your car, truck, motorcycle, boat, other vehicles, and lawn equipment are all running efficiently.  Think Lucas Oil Products this winter! They do so much for racing communities across America. Other sponsors of KMS include PNC Bank (Sponsor of Scott Dixon's Indy Car Series Car), St. Matthews Cycling, Sportsdrome Speedway  (Celebrating more than 78 years of Racing!), locally owned Bright Pest Control and Bright Retail in Louisville, (Offering Do-It-Yourself Professional Pest Products with a retail store), and Knox Ford in Radcliff, Kentucky) (It also has a sister dealership, Tri-County Ford in Oldham County, KY).   KMS friends also include: VoiceTel Kentucky (Offering telephone service for low as $25.00 a line per month), Temco Roofing, Jim Ellis/Attorney-At-Law, ICA Dumpsters, Kentucky Raceway Ministries, Nimlok Kentucky (Outdoor and Indoor signs and more), Dynamic Chiropractic Health and Rehab, Lyndon Mower Repair, and Kentucky Medicare Plans (Serving Kentucky and Southern Indiana with Health and Medicare plans). We also thank our media connections in all series, NASCAR and with NASCAR Media, Indy Car, Monster Jam, ARCA, and NHRA for helping us bring the sport to the fans!  

   John Force is now undergoing rehab. The NHRA legend suffered extensive injuries when his engine detonated in a fireball after Force crossed the finish line at more than 300 m.p.h. at Virginia during qualifying a few weeks ago at the Virginia Nationals. He's won over 150 Funny Car Event Championships.  We hope and pray for a full recovery.   He may never race again. His health comes first.  But if he can, don't be surprised if he roars down the track in a dragster again.  John Force won't let this incident keep him down. Time will tell.  The NHRA is back in action this weekend at the Northeast Nationals at the Pacific Raceways.  Lucas Oil is a longtime sponsor of the drag racing series!    

  Will Power won the Indy Car Series race at Iowa. A nasty four car crash took place as the race was winding down.  Driver Sting Ray Robb is hospitalized in good condition after his car flipped over.  We wish him a speedy recovery.  At the previous race, Pato O' Ward took the win in Ohio.  The next Indy Car Series race is this weekend on the streets of Toronto, Canada.

 Serving Kentucky and Southern Indiana





Race teams know you have to be in strong mental, emotional, and physical shape to wheel a competitive car or truck around the track.  Running 100 short track  or 500 big laps can be challenging for a driver. Seconds count when hitting the pits for service.  A crew must be fast and make no mistakes.  And all must be physically ready.  Then there are wrecks!  A car slams into a wall or a racer is caught up in a multiple car mishap.  Safety equipment has improved greatly over the years. Still, drivers and crew members get medical help for aches and pains. And that includes back and spinal care.  

Locally, Dr. Paul Constante with Dynamic Chiropractic has helped treat college, pro, high school, and other athletes for years. The list of Louisville area patients includes racers.  Professionals and every day people also turn to Dr. Constante and his team for chiropractic care and treatment. He serves patients from Kentucky and Southern Indiana.  Learn more at:
