Lou Kennedy Jr. at Jackson Speedway (now Jackson Motorplex) in Jackson, MN. Kennedy is third on the all-time NOSA wins list with 51 career victories.
TRIVIA ANSWER:Following a seventh place finish in the C-main at the World of Outlaws Spring Opener at Knoxville Raceway on April 29, 1994, Donny Schatz came back to his home state of North Dakota to compete at Grand Forks Speedway season opener the next Friday night. The driver out of Minot, ND topped the field to park his Schatz Crossroads machine in victory lane. In doing so, Schatz became the first winner of the new 410 sprint car sanctioning body known as the Northern Outlaw Sprint Association.

What better way to kick things off than with NOSA's founder, Wayne Anderson, and his familiar Budweiser #9 sprinter with Watertown, South Dakota's Chuck Swenson behind the wheel. This photo was taken at Red River Valley Speedway in April of 1996 while Swenson was competing with the Wissota Championship 360 Sprints on this particular Friday evening at the West Fargo half-mile.
