*Kevin Doty dies after racing crash.    Kevin Doty, a Burlington driver well–known on auto
  racing circuits in the Midwest, died Tuesday from massive head injuries suffered in an on–track
  accident Sunday night in Wisconsin. Doty was competing in the 25–lap feature race Sunday night
  at Angell Park Speedway, outside Madison in Sun Prairie, when the accident occurred. Doty,
  who had competed at the track for 25 years, flipped coming out of the fourth turn on Lap 12.
  Vicki Boorse, whose husband raced against Doty on many occasions and who witnessed the
  crash, said Doty's car flipped several times, hit the top of the wall and ended up in the entrance
  road to the track outside of Turn 4. Doty was taken by a MedFlight helicopter to University
  Hospital in Madison, where he was put on life–support.  Doctors performed surgery Monday
  morning to reduce swelling on his brain.  He was taken off life support late Monday night.  Doty,
  43, was pronounced dead at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.  He is survived by his son, Kevin Doty Jr, and
  his father, Bud.  Doty is the second Burlington driver to die in a race–related accident this year.
  Late model driver Brent Slocum was killed June 11, in an accident in the pit area at 34 Raceway.
  Doty's death leaves yet another void in the racing world.  "Kevin was a great guy," said Bart
  Schneiderman, a local sprint car driver and owner. "He was a fantastic driver and a great guy. He
  was a very talented competitor. This is a tough loss for the racing community."  "As a driver, he
  was always professional," said Boorse, whose husband Dan competed against Doty on the
  Badger Midget Auto Racing Association (BMARA) circuit. "He is one of the most professional
  drivers I ever met. If he could pass them clean, he would pass them clean. No slide jobs. As a
  person, with all his accomplishments, he was always very humble. He was always humble about
  all of his accomplishments. It's a tragedy. It really is."  "It was very violent," Boorse said of the
  crash. "When I first looked over I could see his head moving in the car. People started saying
  they thought he was all right. But when the emergency workers got to the car and got him out, he
  complained about his head and back hurting.  "When I saw the MedFlight, I knew it was serious.
  They didn't have to cut the car to get him out, but I saw them put him on a (back) board. Every-
  one was just in a state of shock. They didn't know how it happened."  The BMARA and the race
  track reported Doty's death on their Web sites Tuesday morning.  Angell Park Speedway's
  Web site said funeral arrangements are pending at Runge's Funeral Home in Davenport. A
  memorial fund is being established. Scott Bonar, Burlington, part owner of Midland Performance,
  was Doty's chief mechanic for several years. He even lived with Doty when Doty lived in Milan,
  Illinois.  "I was close to Kevin, especially when he moved to Burlington," Bonar said. "He used to
  come out to the shop about every day. It's tough."  Doty was one of the most recognizable names
  in midget and sprint car racing. Among his list of accomplishments, Doty won the Belleville Nat-
  ionals, Hut 100 and five Pepsi Nationals, as well as the sprint car portion of four Crown Nationals
  at Eldora. Perhaps he was best known for his second–place finish in the 2002 Chili Bowl, where
  he finished behind NASCAR Nextel Cup driver Tony Stewart.  In one of his finest seasons as a
  driver, Doty won the Badger championship in '94 at Angell Park Speedway, winning 15 features
  along the way.  "I've never seen anyone win a championship the way he did that year," Boorse
  said. "He just made it a clean sweep, week after week. Hot laps, heat races, dashes and features.
  He was just dominant."  Doty raced occasionally in the southeast Iowa area, competing in Sprint
  Invaders events on several occasions at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson, as well as 34
  Raceway.  Two years ago, he drove Schneiderman's car. He was the driver of Bonar's No. 50
  car prior to Jerrod Hull.  The Sprint Invaders Web site had a special statement honoring Doty.
  "Kevin was an icon in the sport of sprint car and midget racing; a great competitor and friend," the
  Web site read. "May he rest in peace."  Vicki Boorse has a special memory of Doty.  "When Dan
  and I were dating, I remember talking to Kevin down at the Chili Bowl," Vicki Boorse said. "We
  were at a restaurant late at night drinking a cup of coffee and Kevin was talking about his son,
  about how much little Kevin meant to him and how hard it was being a single parent. "I will always
  remember that and how important his son was to him."  Doty, who won his heat race by beating
  Dan Boorse earlier in the night, was a fixture at Angell Park Raceway.  "He was a good racer.
  He's just been around it a long time," said Kenny Weiland Sr, owner of Weiland Racing Enter-
  prises in Chicago. "I was there when he won his first race in Sycamore, Illinois.  He was driving
  his Dad's car.  This is just so sad."  "Kevin was probably the best midget car racer I have ever
  seen," Bonar said.  "He was good. He was so smooth."  "I'll miss him. There was always a void
  when he wasn't up there," Boorse said. "He's really going to be missed at Angell Park Speedway.
  "Kevin Doty was Sun Prairie."     By MATT LEVINS.

*If the California Hot Rod Reunion had a face, it would be Steve Gibbs.  Gibbs worked for
  the NHRA nearly 35 years. His dedication to the organization, and the sport of drag racing,
  helped Gibbs climb the ranks of the NHRA to vice president. Currently he's a board mem-
  ber of the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, where he served as its original direct-
  or.  Gibbs is the guy - or one of them - that started the enormously popular NHRA Califor-
  nia Hot Rod Reunion, presented by the Automobile Club of Southern California (now in its
  14th year), something thousands of vintage drag race fans, hot rodders and most import-
  antly, old-time drag racers, can be thankful for.  In this interview, Gibbs talks about how
  the Reunion (set for Sept. 30-Oct. 2, Bakersfield, Calif.) started and what it means to those
  who lived it.  (Bill Groak in www.HotRodhotline.com)  
*There seems to have appeared a new SCAM on the forefront...we have heard that some
  sellers are being approached by someone by telephone or fax saying that they have a buyer
  for the car but need an upfront "finders fee" of  $299.  These people say they are in the
  midwest but we're not sure where they are.  We would recommend that you ignore this type
  of solicitation.  We think it's bogus and a scam.  We want to remind you about the Scams
  that  seem  to surface from time to time on the internet. The most common scam is the one
  where the buyer  wants to send you more money than you are asking for the car and  asks
  you to wire them the difference. There is NO REASON why  this should have to happen.  It
  is a SCAM.  For more information see our page on SCAMS.  (Www.Hotrodhotline.com)

  prizes and a raffle will be held during the festivities.  Tickets are $5 per person.  The DAV Club

*We had another storm come through here about the same time we all got hit at Bonneville.
  We have a real lake. Have not seen any sign of the BLM this morning. With Barry & Gina
  leaving in mid Sept, that's going to put a BIG hole in our BLM personel for out here.  The
  storm that hit here several weeks ago & flooded the lake & it did help.  We have plenty of
