Atomic Speedway, Ohio Sprint Car Series, Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week each to enforce random drug testing

CHILLICOTHE, OH (May 20, 2017) – In an effort to increase safety standards amongst racers, Brad McCown, promoter of Atomic Speedway, Ohio Sprint Car Series and Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week, will now enforce random drug testing during mentioned events in 2017. Competitors chosen to be evaluated will be notified on the day of any given event. If the competitor is proven to be impaired, immediate action will be taken at the promoter’s discretion, or Series officials’ discretion.

“Maintaining safety is the bottom line,” Brad McCown explained. “We not only want to keep all of our competitors safe, but we also want to assure the safety of our track crew and track officials, as well as the safety of those sitting in the stands. Driving impaired will not be tolerated. With that said, I am confident this new rule will not deter any of the competitors associated with Atomic Speedway, OSCS and Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week, as I am sure all abide by such standards, anyhow.”

Inside Line Promotions – PHOENIX, Ariz. (Jan. 17, 2017) – X-1 Race Cars is moving across the country this spring.

The sprint car chassis company will shift its headquarters from the desert to the Northeast in an effort to expand the business in the hotbed of winged sprint car action in Central Pennsylvania and New York.

“We’ve had a huge response to the market in that part of the country so I want to expand my business there,” X-1 Race Cars Founder Ryan Linder said. “Jason Barney is the one who got me started in that area and Ryan Smith has helped facilitate our move there so I want to thank them for being a major part of this.”

Linder, who was born and raised in Mexico, Ind., and who has raced sprint cars since 2001, has been involved in the chassis industry since the late 1990s. He worked for chassis builders in Gasoline Alley as well as in California before creating X-1 Race Cars in 2010.

“I decided I could build a better race car than I could buy,” he said. “I build each chassis to order for what a customer’s needs are. We are very meticulous.”

Additionally, Linder, who also has extensive experience building custom motorcycles and performing restorations within the vintage racing community, has made a name for himself in the custom header industry as a master fabricator and welder.

“X-1 Race Cars isn’t just a guy in a garage piecing things together,” he said. “We take a lot of pride in our craft of building the highest quality and most consistent chassis possible.”

X-1 Race Cars, which will operate out of sprint car driver Dale Schweikert’s shop near Lockhaven, Pa., also offers chassis repair and updates as well as any chassis components, including products from Keizer Aluminum Wheels, Saldana Racing Products, DMI, 87 Speed Racing Products, KSE Racing Products, Wilwood Brakes, Schroeder Series torsion bars, Outlaw Wings, King Racing Products, Smith Precision Products and Mote Fasteners.

“I couldn’t make this move without the support of my wife, Holly, who has been pushing me to go east and take a chance,” Linder said. “I would never consider doing something like this unless she was 100 percent behind it.”





X-1 Race Cars is a custom sprint car chassis business that was established in 2010 by sprint car racer and master fabricator Ryan Linder. The company is relocating in 2017 to the Northeast to better serve a hotbed of sprint car racing in Central Pennsylvania and New York.
