By Randy Hoeft @YumaSunSports

Gonna take three months, gonna have a fine vacation …

With apologies to rockabilly artist Eddie Cochran and his manager, Jerry Capehart, who co-wrote the 1958 hit “Summertime Blues,” that will be the scene Saturday night at Cocopah Speedway when the 2014 Cocopah Speedway Racing Series wraps up the first half of the season and takes a […]

Brawley’s Teague wins Hobby Stock feature at Cocopah Speedway

By Randy Hoeft @YumaSunSports

Amy Teague does not like dust.
