One of our favorite races on the Mansfield Speedway – 2005 Craftsman Trucks Mansfield 250

Today we’re going to be taking a look at one of the favorite races of ours which we witnessed at the Mansfield Speedway. Luckily enough there is a 4 part YouTube video of the race, so we can post it here for everyone to enjoy. This is a race from 2005 and because of it’s from 2005, this is an asphalt race, just like the ones that we here at Mansfield Speedway love the most.

So the race that we’re talking about is the 2005 Craftsman Trucks 250. Video posted down below is a 4-parter which covers the better part of the race. Quality might not be the best, but you have to keep in mind that this was recorded way back in 2005, before HD quality video recording hit mainstream.

I was actually present on the race and I saw it live, with my dad. I was 14 at the time, and I had the time of my life watching the race. Competition was fierce and there many takeovers, crashes, and burnt tires, basically everything that makes a race great. This video is just one example out of many of why we here at the movement want to see asphalt making a comeback in some form. From the entire team, we hope that you liked the video and please share with the rest of us what your favorite race on the Mansfield Speedway is.

As we have already mentioned elsewhere, we are huge fans of the Mansfield Speedway and for this reason we are going to be making frequent posts about it. We’ll start off by making a post about the upcoming event that are going to be taking place at the track. Yes, you’ve read that right. Even though we are trying to push through our own agenda of seeing asphalt return on the track at the Mansfield, we still love visiting and watching races that occur on the current dirt track.

Unfortunately fans of seeing events at the Speedway will have to wait a long time before the next race. The next event is planned for August 10th, the Great Lakes Dirt Nationals. You can find more info about the event on the previous link. It’s a multi-day event which will conclude on the 11th of August. Needles to say, we’re going to be seeing dirt racing.

We hope you come and visit the event because we don’t want to see a repeat of the track closing like it did back in 2010. Event might not be asphalt, but we will still be there in support of our favorite venue on the world. We hope you come too and enjoy the show.
