March, 07, 2017 Greg Staab Succumbs to Cancer

The Midwest TQ Racing League Executive Committee is saddened upon hearing of the passing of Greg Staab on Monday evening, March 6th, after his battle with cancer.

Greg, the MTQRL’s Director of Racing Operations from 2011-2013, had been involved in racing for most of his 68 years. He was elected to the Hoosier Auto Racing Fans (HARF) and Dayton Auto Racing Fans (DARF) Hall of Fames in 2013, and his hometown Saylor Park Auto Racing Club 2 (SPARC2) Hall of Fame this past year.

Prior to his duties with the MTQRL Greg was a seven-time Lawrenceburg Speedway track champion (late models and sprints) and a Bloomington Speedway sprint car champion. Greg also raced for over twenty years in the midget, sprint and silver crown divisions of the United States Auto Club where he scored a popular win at Indianapolis Raceway Park in 1988 which was broadcast live on ESPN’s Thursday Night Thunder.

After Greg hung up his driver’s helmet he took over the promotion of Lawrenceburg Speedway from 1997-2000 and was the USAC sprint series coordinator from 2005-2008.

The MTQRL is thankful for all of Greg’s hard work and dedication to not only MTQRL but to the entire racing community. He will be remembered by all who had the chance to meet him. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.



God looked around his garden

And found an empty place.

He then looked down upon the earth,

And saw your tired face.


He put his arms around you

And lifted you to rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,

He always takes the best.


He knew that you were suffering,

He knew that you were in pain.

He knew that you would never

Get well on earth again.


He saw that the road was getting rough

And the hills were hard to climb.

So He closed your weary eyelids

And whispered, “Peace be thine.”


It broke our hearts to lose you

But you did not go alone…

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.
