Quincy Raceways Announces 2012 Purse Structure 

 Quincy Raceways has added the sanctioned UMP Late Models for the 2012. The payoff will feature $1000 to Win the 30 lap main event with the 2nd  $700.3rd $500, 4th $400, 5th $300, 6th $200, 7th $175, 8th $160, 9th $150, 10th through 18th $125 and 19th through 24th $115. All non feature qualifiers will receive $75. The total purse for the UMP Late Models for a weekly event will be $5400, the highest in Quincy Raceways history.

 The IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Northern Sport Mods have also had their payoffs announced which will be the same as Lee County Speedway and 34 Raceway with $300 for 1st, $200 for 2nd, $150 for 3rd, 125 for 4th, $100 for 5th, $80 for 6th, $70 for 7th, $65 for 8th, $60 for 9th through 12th, $55 for 13th through 15th, and $50 for 16th through 24. All non feature qualifiers will receive $40. The total purse for both the IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Northern Sport Mods will be $1945. The payoff for the UMP Modifieds, Hobby Stocks and IMCA Sport Compacts will remain the same as in 2011.

 It also being announced that all racers in any class at Quincy Raceways will be required to purchase and use RACECEIVERs during the 2012 season. RACECEIVERs are available for purchase from most racing suppliers with Pit Side Parts in Donnellson, Iowa and Griffin Performance in Quincy having special buys on them at this time. It was felt that by using the RACECEIVER system, the time it takes to realign the cars during caution flags and the on track safety of competitors and race officials would be greatly improved.


Quincy Raceways new email address is quincyraceways@gmail.com

Please use this for all email communications with the track. It will be checked at least daily if not more. There will be new phone service as well in the near future, hopefully with the same phone numbers as before.
The 2012 schedule is being worked out now with at least two late model special events possibly Northern All Stars and MARS and at least one MOWA sprint car show as well. We will be announcing more as soon as possible.
Racecievers will be required by all drivers at Quincy Raceways in 2012. More detail on that soon as well.

 

Quincy Raceways will be under new ownership for the 2012 season.

November 3, 2011 - The announcement came late Wednesday night when Paul Holtschlag and Bob Rhinberger announced their partnership, representing the fourth ownership group for the 37-year-old facility since 2007.

Holtschlag had been a co-owner since 2009 with Tony Rhinberger. Tony Rhinberger was bought out by Bob Rhinberger, his father. No sale price was disclosed.

In another major -- and equally important -- announcement, Holtschlag said the track's late model division, its marquee series, will be sanctioned by United Midwestern Promoters (UMP), barring any unforeseen problems with unfinished paperwork in the coming weeks.

"Quincy has a great racing fan base and racers who love to race," Holtschlag said. "We're going to get this going in the right direction, and feel the UMP sanctioning of the late models is the way to go. The economy is tough out there right now, but we're confident and we're excited about this new direction for the late model class at Quincy Raceways."

The average weekly late model car counts have dropped in each of the last five years, from a track-record 25 in 2006 to 15 last season.

Quincy Raceways sanctioned its modified class with UMP in 2009 and drew a weekly average of 25 cars, a record for a modified division at the track. The previous high had been 24 in the old "B" modified series in 2002.

The UMP late model sanctioning reverses a recent announcement made by Tony Rhinberger before he sold his half of the track operation that Quincy Raceways late models would be aligned with the Missouri-based United Late Model Association (ULMA), severing a 14-year sanctioning agreement with the International Motorsports Contest Association (IMCA), headquartered in Vinton, Iowa.

Holtschlag, Bob Rhinberger and other track officials met with late model drivers Tuesday night to let them know about the change in ownership and get their input on what sanctioning direction the track should take.

"The overwhelming majority, I would say 90 percent, was for going with UMP," said Holtschlag, a local businessman who also owns several group homes in Missouri, Kutter's Bar and Grill on the Quincy riverfont, a restaurant in southeastern Iowa and is developing the site at 18th and Broadway that once housed Prairie Farms Dairy properties.

UMP currently sanctions eight racing divisions with more than 100 tracks in 19 states and one Canadian province. UMP was created in 1984 by the late Bob Memmer, and is arguably best known for its annual Summernationals "Hell Tour" each June and July. The organization's corporate headquarters are in Concord, N.C., but much of its dirt-track operations is housed in Grayville, Ill. There are 22 UMP tracks in Illinois.

Quincy will be the only UMP track in the region with Sunday night racing, which is expected to help draw larger late model fields. Shepp's Speedway in Alexander, Ill., formerly raced on Sundays but is switching to Fridays.

Holtschlag said the overriding key to the .29-mile track's success will be its racing surface, which was much improved in 2011 over 2010. Considerable offseason work was done a year ago at this time and it paid dividends, said Holtschlag, who coordinated much of that work himself.

"Word gets around, and I feel we made progress this past season," he said. "I think most of the comments about the track last season were very positive."

Quincy Raceways was family owned and operated for the first 32 years (1975-2007) of its existence. The late Albert Scott ran the track until selling it his son, Bob Scott, in 1993. The track was purchased by Tony Rhinberger and Mike Karhoff in January 2007. Rhinberger then bought out Karhoff and operated the facility by himself through 2008 until teaming Holtschlag in 2009.

Photos and comments from Jack Walbring

The only time I have ever seen it worse was in June in 1993, the year of the great flood when we had over 8 inches in one night. The water was just about over the top of the billboards in the infield. We believe that the water level last night and this morning may have actually been a foot to 18” higher than when I shot those  pictures at 9:00 am this morning. MORE PHOTOS HERE

Mother Nature Takes Checkered Flag at Quincy Raceways 

 Quincy Raceways has been forced to cancel the Heetco Night at the Races for Sunday April 17, 2011. Heavy Rains on Friday along with cool and cloudy temperatures on Saturday with no wind to help dry the track and pit area on Sunday have led to very wet conditions on the track and pit area forcing the cancellation.

 Quincy Raceways owners Tony Rhinberger and Paul Holtschlag felt that even if the track could have been dried enough to race, track conditions would have led to a very rough race track that would possibly lead to some very damaged and torn up race cars. Track conditions for the first two nights at Quincy Raceways this season have been good and to have raced today would have led to serious damage to the racing surface as well as the race equipment of our loyal drivers.

 Coming up next Sunday April 24 at Quincy Raceways will be Crawdad’s Classic Gourmet Seasonings Night at the Races featuring point’s racing in the Budweiser IMCA Late Models, Miller Lite UMP Modifieds, Triple R Performance Engines IMCA Stock Cars, KRNQ Pepsi Inside Track Hobby Stocks and the Summy Tire and Auto Center Wild Things. Sunday April 24 will also be the first night of the Q34 Bonus Bucks Points chase at Quincy Raceways for the Budweiser IMCA Late Models.
