Bob and Jackie Vogt Memorial this Friday at Raceway 7
Conneaut, OH (August 8, 2018): Bob and Jackie Vogt were two of the most loved and most respected people in Raceway 7 history, Bob as a skilled championship contender and Jackie as a long-time scorer. Sadly, both succumbed to the ravages of cancer, Bob in 2003, and Jackie in 2015. Their son, Bob Jr, a skilled racer himself, currently works at Raceway 7, and the Granddaughter Alexis races in the Sunnyside Farms Transit Mini Stocks. Raceway 7 has honored their memory every summer since their passing with a memorial event for the Bonnell’s Collision Center E-mods.

Many time champion Joel Watson, the leading winner with five victories, is third, another 52 points back. Casey Bowers, with a win July 6 is fourth. Two-time champion Percy McDonald is fifth.
