Club Loose II Season Opener – Midvale , Ohio – May 12, 2013

Club Loose II, run by John Wagner and Jimmie Caldwell at Midvale Speedway Ohio, is an extension of the Club Loose that is dedicated to South western PA / Western Ohio / North West Virgina amateur drifters. The majority of the drifters come from Pittsburgh and Ohio, and were previously drifting up at Beaverun Motorsports Complex up till 2011, when residents complained about the “noisy” racecars. Wagner scouted around and found Midvale’s figure 8 track suitable for amateur drifters to learn and hone their skills.
