        BARDSTOWN - The National All Star Racing Association made its first official appearance of 2010 at Bluegrass Speedway on Saturday evening and Aaron Hatton would drive away $3,000 richer after picking up the victory in the 9th Annual June Jam event and it would also be Hatton’s first-ever Bluegrass Speedway feature win.  Other feature event winners for the evening included Shane Lafollette of Hodgenville, KY in UMP Street Stocks and Jason Wheatley of Loretto, KY in UMP Modifieds.

     

  • Topless Terror Night/Mod Squad...

        BARDSTOWN - Bluegrass Speedway track promoters David and Anita Ferrell will present a double of sorts this Saturday evening June 26 at the ½ mile, high-banked Nelson County clay oval as it will be the 7th Annual Topless Terror Night for 44 Auto Mart Super Late Models and the 10th Annual Mod Squad Bash for the American Modified Series presented by Force Fuel and Engine Conditioner.          

     

  • North Bullitt starts fast but...

        LOUISVILLE - The magical late-season run of the North Bullitt Eagles came to a close on Tuesday afternoon.

        In Jim Patterson Stadium on the University of Louisville campus, the Eagles fell 9-4 to the Butler Bears in the semifinals of the Sixth Region baseball tournament.

        The loss came 24 hours after North Bullitt pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the season by defeating Pleasure Ridge Park, the state’s second-ranked team, in the regional opener.

  • Chargers easily defeat Central...

        LOUISVILLE - Some baseball victories are spectacular and others more mundane.

        But in the post-season, any victory is to be cherished no matter the intensity level. It is win and move on.

        That was the case Monday night in the final opening round game of the Sixth Region Baseball Tournament at St. Xavier. Bullitt East was supposed to mow down a Central team that had won just six of 28 contests to this point in the season.

  • Return to regional scene ends...

    LOUISVILLE - Seniors Jenna Simms and Erin Manns never expected to be standing in Ulmer Stadium playing for the right to advance to the state softball tournament.

    After struggling through a trio of sub-par seasons, Bullitt East came within two innings of making one of the most improbable tournament runs in the state of Kentucky.

    Despite the 5-4 loss on Thursday to Pleasure Ridge Park, first-year coach Ricky Hoffman was full of smiles.

  • Perfect Storm: Eagles eliminate...

        LOUISVILLE - It was the perfect storm for the North Bullitt Eagles on Monday as they upset the state’s second-ranked PRP Panthers to open the Sixth Region baseball tournament.

        Behind the solid pitching of Cody Montgomery, timely hitting and a tight defense, the Eagles upset the Panthers 3-2 to advance to the semifinals on Tuesday against the Butler Bears.

  • Long ball turns post-season into...

        OKOLONA - A pair of home runs accounted for all seven of the runs that Pleasure Ridge Park would need on Monday in an opening round game of the Sixth Region Softball Tournament against North Bullitt.

        The Lady Panthers got a grand slam in the bottom of the first inning from Sara Paragon and then a three-run blast from Morgan Hart in the fourth inning en route to a 7-4 victory against the runners-up of the 24th District Tournament.

  • Ken-Ten Late Model Series...

        SALEM - The Ken-Ten (Kentucky-Tennessee) Late Model Series is set to make its inaugural visit to Salem Speedway on Saturday night, June 19th, for the Touchstone Energy Hoosier Hills 100.

     

        With an expected entry list spiced with wily veterans, young chargers and former Salem winners the 17th edition of the 100-lap race is shaping up as an interesting combination of race teams and drivers.

     

  • BE doubles team falls in three...

        LEXINGTON - The top Bullitt East doubles team of Matt Phipps and Carlos del Viejo played well, but were eliminated in the first round of the 2010 Kentucky State Tennis Tournament on Thursday in a three set marathon at the University of Kentucky.

  • Offense arrives late as BE rolls...

        OKOLONA - With just one hit and only two base runners through the first five innings of Monday’s Sixth Region Tournament opener, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were struggling to figure out Holy Cross pitcher Angela Moseley.

        Fortunately, Bullitt East pitcher Jamie Lutes was just as hard for the Lady Cougars to figure out.
