Seekonk, MA — Once again, Mother Nature proved to be no fan of short track racing in Southern New England on Saturday, forcing the postponement of the 3rd Annual Dusty You Memorial Race. This event has become one of the favorites for the Late Model competitors, as many of them knew Dusty well from his time at the various speedways. Dusty was the car owner for Team 99, which his son Glenn drove for many years. They competed with success in the Street Stocks, Late Models, and Pro Stocks at Seekonk Speedway. But you wouldn’t be surprised to the the Team 99 bus pull up to any short track in New England. Traveling to the bigger shows at Lee USA and Thompson Speedways, not to mention other events as well, Dusty, Glenn and the entire Team 99 became well known to the competitors as well as the fans.
The Dusty Young Memorial race will be held this Saturday, July 3rd, as part of a FANtastic weekend. Also on hand Saturday is the annual kids Tryke Race. Kids from the ages of 3 through 7 will compete on track for bragging rights and supremecy over their peers. Last year saw over 30 kids compete in the two classes, broken up by age groups. Helmets and safety gear is mandatory for competitors. More information can be found on our website, seekonkspeedway.com.
