Beaber plans to return to the seat of a 410 sprint car at
Speedway on Saturday. If Beaber feels he can still compete
on a high level,

horsepower with an
engine that Tony traded a Midget for. The black number 66
Chassis will make the tow to Don Martins Lernerville
Speedway either Friday,
June 7 or Friday, June 14 to renew old friendships.
Beaber made it clear that his return to sprint car racing
was because he
wants to, his family is involved and its not to just add
to his win total of
55 features at Lernerville Speedway over a nine year period.

to have it for a while. If
Ed Lynch Jr. wins and gets the record, it would be great
for him and his
family." Beaber also stated in an exclusive interview
with The Inside Track
for RPM Racing News that if all goes well, there is a chance
he could be
reunited with his former car owner, Dick "Soupy"
