Woody Pitkat Heading West for Toyota All-Star Showdown

Stafford, CT — The 2007 season has been an unforgettable one for Woody Pitkat.  If there was a race somewhere along the Eastern Seaboard, chances are Pitkat was behind the wheel.  With nearly 80 starts to date during the 2007 calendar year in everything from weekly Late Model and SK Modifieds to the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Pitkat has not just been one of the busiest drivers, but also one of the most successful racers in the country.

But on Saturday, October 20th, Pitkat will be spreading his racing wings beyond the East Coast and venturing out West, when the 28-year-old driver will be making his first-ever appearance in a full-bodied NASCAR Grand National Division, Busch East Series racecar in the Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, California.

Clark Beats Sanborn & Mother Nature to Win at White Mountain

Naples, ME — When he lined up 19th for Sunday’s Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Model feature at White Mountain Motorsports Park (NH), Cassius Clark knew that he would have plenty of obstacles to dodge if he wanted to get to victory lane.

150 laps later, the 25-year-old driver had dodged them all – from staying out of the way of championship contenders to just being able to make it to the advertised distance of the race without having nearby rain and snow showers spoil the show.  When all was said and done, it was Clark who was able to win his second PASS North feature of the 2007 season.

Perley Tops Last Year’s Win Total with a Victory at the World Series

Thompson, CT – Chris Perley put a cap on another phenomenal race season by adding the ISMA portion of the Thompson World series to his feature win list on Sunday. His eleventh win of the year topped his record-breaking ten win total of 2006. It also upped his All-Time ISMA wins to 50. While he had already claimed his fourth ISMA-Wirtgen championship, the victory was satisfying nonetheless. His main competition was once again Dave McKnight and for a while it seemed like Canadians were everywhere near the front fighting for the win. But, at the end, it was the Rowley Rocket carrying the checkered flag around the Connecticut oval.

“ It was tough out there,” said Chris in victory lane. “I knew Dave and Mike were going to be my toughest competitors because of the way they both were running yesterday in the heats. For a while I didn’t have much for Dave. I was just trying to keep in touch with him. He’d get through the lap traffic and he’d get some distance on me. So I just tried to stay with him. He ended up getting a little tight. I was a little loose. Then my car kind of came around toward the end. I didn’t know if I could stick on the outside but I thought if I could show him a wheel I might be able to hold him down. That was the only shot I had.
