Dillon Motor Speedway Wants to Honor Racer

Dillon Motor Speedway wants to honor and send prayers a great racer, “BIG” John Schaak #26 Street Stock.  John lost his life after posting his best career finish of third place (3rd) in the Street Stock Division at Dillon Motor Speedway this past Saturday night. John has raced with us many times and will be dearly missed. The Street Stock race went 25 laps caution free with no wrecks or yellow flags. Ricky Locklair Jr won the feature with Justin Altman finishing second followed by “Big” John Schaak in third. John spoke with his crew and a family member on the phone just minutes after the race excited about his best finish ever.. He said it was just like a win!  After the race while celebrating with his crew John Schaak suffered a heart attack in the infield. Godspeed and Rest in Peace John! Our prayers are with you and your family and friends.  Always Trust in God because you never know when your number is going to be called on this earth even if it is in your happiest moments. John celebrating with his family of racers and crew in the infield after a great finish.

Ron Barfield and the DMS Family.
