Episode Info: Event Three of the TSRS 305 Sprint Series travels south of the Mason Dixon Line to Georgetown Speedway and I have an interview with the race winner Mike Haggenbottom. Mike Haggenbottom drives the number 24 sprinter and is one of the veteran drivers of the series and Mike looks like he has a good shot at defending his 2012 Point tittle. 19 Sprinters made their way down to Georgetown Speedway for Friday night’s show. Two of the more noticeably absent were Erika and Stephanie  Palmai. One of the toughest parts of a Friday show is that many people have to take off from their jobs early to travel to the track and it becomes an issue. I rode down with Eddie Wagner and Eddie got out of his work truck and jumped right into the tow rig still in his work clothes and safety vest and we hammered down to the track. So I can see why some drivers opted not to make the trip. What I want to do with this podcast is each week spotlight a driver in the TSRS 305 Sprint Series.  This week Mike Haggenbottom was nice enough to call in.  Mike has been driving Sprint Cars for over 20 years.  Mike has won a URC sprint title and tallied 11 feature wins.  Mike was also the 2012 TSRS Champion. This week May 11th the TSRS 305 Sprints return to New Egypt Speedway for event number 4. You know what draws me to this series?  These are people who love Sprint Car Racing. This organization is a labor of love from top to bottom. The drivers, the officials, they are not making any money racing, they do it because they love it. I got a chance to talk to Joe Grandinetti and you can just tell he does what he does because he loves this sport. He is just trying to make competitive sprint car racing affordable to those who want to race. My prediction.  This series will bring some drivers out of retirement. I was talking to Joe about was volunteering to help with some of the marketing and media duties. Hopefully, Joe and I can meet and come up with a plan where I could help out. I believe this series has great growth potential. I would love to hear from you.  You can comment on this podcast by going to the comment section just below this post.
