Motorsports: Andy Haus keeps family tradition alive


"Dad didn't say too much to me in terms of advice when I got into racing," Haus said. "If I ask him a question, he'll answer it."

Scott Haus noted that he was doing better since his early-season crash at Port Royal.

"I had a bad wreck in the sprint cars in the same spot back in 1987 as I did with the late model this year," he said.

Andy received a call from a family member about the crash.

"I got a call just before our late model feature and when we found out that it was not life-threatening, we decided to run the feature," Andy said. "Selinsgrove was very nice and stopped the show to let us out to go be with dad."

This season, Selinsgrove Speedway promoter Charlie Paige has increased the late model division purse to the same as the headline division, the 358 sprint cars.

"We are at Selinsgrove over Port since they increased the pay and they were the first ones to do it, so we are going to try and support them," Andy said.

He said he is surprised that, with the increase in payout for the late models at Selinsgrove, the car counts have been low.

"Port upped their purse a little bit, but, still not enough through to back of the field. I don't know why folks don't want to run at Selinsgrove. It does seem to be hard on equipment, but, at Selinsgrove, you have a chance to leave with $200 to $300."

Andy is 15th in the late model points at Selinsgrove.

He drives a MasterSbilt by Huey chassis and is sponsored by CKC Trucking (owned by Mike and Lynn Gaw of Herndon), Miller Racing Engines, The Fastener Place, Penske Racing Shocks, Eibach Springs, Buck Rubs Gentleman, Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic and Schaeffer's Racing Oil.
