The Omaha Racers were an Omaha Professional Basketball team that you should know about
The Omaha Racers were a CBA basketball team that played in Omaha from 1989 to 1997.
I (Paul) started going to Racers games in 1989. As a then 9-year old who was obsessed with basketball, there was NOTHING cooler than going to a Racers game and seeing former, current, and future NBA players.
I (Paul) still remember the thrill of buying a season ticket package with my then, and still, best friend Eric Hoffman and going to all the games.
The Coolest Guy In The “Room” Of Ak-Sar-Ben Coliseum On Game Day Was Racers’ Owner Steve Idelman.
Seated courtside for every game, I don’t remember seeing him wear anything other than a black t-shirt and pants – he just looked cool, and was invested (in every sense) into every play of every game.
I reached out to Steve a few years back. Initially I was in search of a high-quality version of the Omaha Racers logo.
But we became friends and partnered a run of Racers t-shirts and stickers, to keep the brand alive.
