Busy Season Ahead For Champion Pasteryak With True Value Modified Series

Canaan, NH — To say that defending True Value Modified Racing Series champion Chris Pasteryak is excited over the opportunity that’s come his way would be an understatement. Three weeks ago, the Lisbon, CT; standout, received a surprise phone call that would change his plans for 2009. Wayne Darling, long time car owner, who fields a racer on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, asked Pasteryak if he would have any interest in driving his #59 racer in seven WMT races. “I was shocked and flattered that he would consider me. That’s a good car and good team all around. I am grateful for the opportunity,” said the second generation driver.

Pasteryak said it was important to him that he still supported the True Value Modified Racing Series. “The way it looks, we are only going to miss three shows with the True Value tour” He admits it is going to be tough to defend his title but an opportunity like the Darling offer does not come along everyday.

Speedbowl Adds Truck Series to 2009 Schedule

Waterford, CT — The Waterford Speedbowl has announced the formation and addition of a new Truck Series for the historic shoreline oval in 2009.  The new Series is based upon the same template as the current “G” chassis race trucks found throughout the Northeast.  The Series will run 8 events at the ‘Bowl throughout the 2009 season.

“We believe that a great number of these trucks populate our immediate region, and with the economy as it is, it makes some sense to offer a local venue for these competitors” stated Speedbowl owner Terry Eames.

The Truck Series will make its debut at the 13th annual Modified Nationals on Saturday, March 28 and appear on 4 Saturday Night events on May 2, June 27, August 1, and September 19.  They will be part of the season-ending Finale weekend, racing on Saturday, October 10.  Tentatively, these feature events will be 25-laps.  The Series will also make 2 appearances on Wild ‘N Wacky Wednesday, the Speedbowl’s popular mid-week program, with planned 20-lap feature events.

Harsh Words

The next passage we take a look at may take us a few weeks to get our hands around. Many times in life words have several meanings. Sometimes we think we know what something means only to find out something was lost in the translation. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Have you ever lost your temper? Threatened to do something to someone? Gone so far as to say you would take them out? We all lose it and overreact at times. What does it mean when we say things to others? Are words really that important?

Out on the track things happen and when they happen to us we react. We usually do not wait and figure out what really happened before we respond. Racers in the heat of the moment have been known to do things they later regret.

Seekonk Speedway Announces New Sport Four Entry Level Division

Seekonk, MA — Looking toward the future, Seekonk Speedway Race Director Dave Alburn announced the introduction of a new entry level class of racing at Seekonk Speedway. The Sport Four division will be a true entry level class of racing, added to the Fast Friday schedule in 2009.  

“We are always looking for new and inexpensive ways for the fans to get involved in racing here at Seekonk Speedway”, Dave stated. “We have had things in the past that had gotten way beyond what we were trying to accomplish”. What Dave was talking about was the previous Formula Four division which was scuttled after the 2003 racing season. While they share the same basic format, the cars that competed previously in the Formula Four class will not be eligible.  “We want a class of cars that people can race, not race cars.” The rules package that has been put together clearly outlines the basics of entry level racing.

Shawn Monahan Leaves Waterford Speedbowl Board of Directors

I would like to publicly announce my withdrawal from the Waterford Speedbowl lease. I appreciate everyone’s support and enthusiasm for my involvement. It is with great regret that I was unable to come to a mutually beneficial agreement with Mr. Eames. As many of you know, I have worked hard, and invested much energy and financial resources to see this deal come to fruition.  However, despite good faith efforts on both parts, we were unable to reach an agreement and have, at this time, dissolved our potential partnership.

During the time in which I was working with Mr. Eames in anticipation of the partnership, I collected money on behalf of the Waterford Speedbowl.  I want to assure all of those who have purchased their number registrations and/or season passes that the money has been turned over to Terry Eames as owner of the Waterford Speedbowl.

I understand many of you made those payments because you were hoping I would be involved and running the Speedbowl; and I can assure you I’m as disappointed as you are.  However, the money had to be turned over legally as criminal charges could have resulted in my holding checks made out to Waterford Speedbowl without having any authority to cash them.

I would again like to thank you all for your support.

Kobyluck The First To Make It Two

Earns Second Toyota All-Star Showdown title

Irwindale, CA – Matt Kobyluck is no stranger to wild finishes at the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown. Saturday night at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale, he once again got the best of a three-car, last-lap free-for-all to end up in Victory Lane.

In the process, the Uncasville, Conn., driver became the first to win two NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdowns.

Joey Logano slid up into Peyton Sellers while going for the lead in Turn 4 coming to the checkered flag. Kobyluck, who was running third, came across the start-finish line a nose behind Logano. Logano was penalized for his move, though, giving Kobyluck a second NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown to go with the one he won in 2006.

Town Fair Tire Becomes Title Sponsor of Stafford Speedway’s August Whelen Modified Tour Event

Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford Motor Speedway has announced that Town Fair Tire has become the title sponsor of the track’s prestigious August 7th Whelen Modified Tour event, the 19th Annual Town Fair Tire 150.

Town Fair Tire’s association with Stafford Motor Speedway is a partnership that traces its origins back 10 years to 1999. Town Fair Tire began their involvement with Stafford as an advertiser in the track’s PitStopper Magazine and has continually expanded their level of participation since their initial program advertisement. Town Fair Tire increased their advertising presence at Stafford by becoming a Billboard Sponsor and eventually began setting up displays on the midway to showcase their lines of tires and specialty rims. The midway displays led to Town Fair Tire becoming an Event Title Sponsor in 2007 as they sponsored Town Fair Tire Summer Heat and presented contingency bonuses to the SK Modified® and Late Model feature event winners. Last season saw Town Fair Tire shift their title sponsorship to Stafford’s popular Summer Blast-Off Fireworks program and the sponsorship has been elevated to a topflight level for the 2009 season by sponsoring the August 7th Whelen Modified Tour event.

Do The Rules Apply

Have you ever noticed in life we are increasingly looking for an advantage? As we look around we see a world who is focused on being first, to the point of rudeness. Why is it that we think we deserve to be first, or in some way treated differently than others? Our passage today reminds us that the rules written long ago still apply. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

At the track every team is looking for the things that will make their car go the fastest. They are searching for that one thing that gives them an advantage over the rest. That in itself isn’t wrong, it is when that desire leads us across the line into the questionable area, the gray area of the rules. Some have even been known to actually break the rules to gain an advantage.
