(Sunday November 22, 2015) Wall Stadium Wall Township NJ.
Wall Stadium’s final pre-Turkey Derby practice session saw 16 TQ midgets take to the track in preparation for the $1,000 to win ATQMRA Turkey Derby scheduled for this coming Saturday November 28th. Pit gates open at 6:30 am practice starts at 8:30 with qualifying starting at 11:00am. A record number of TQ midgets are expected for the Annual Season ending Turkey Derby. Racers from all over the northeast will be taking part in the event with drivers coming from as far away as Wisconsin.
The final Turkey Derby test session was well attended by TQ midgets. A handful of drivers made their first laps in Wall’s inner oval. Liquid Lou Cicconi had a fleet of cars on hand including a newly designed TQ midget built by accomplished car builder BJ MacDonald styled after a highly successful Super Modified scaled to the specifications of the TQ midget world. The car will be driven in the Turkey Derby by Supermodified star Dave Shulick. Cicconi will be in the Ted Christopher TQ midget that TC used to win numerous indoor races over the years.
2015 ATQMRA Champion Buddy Sload was back behind the wheel of the familiar Colin Martin Owned Spitfire 16 that Sload used to win the 2015 club Championship. Sload had a virtual stranglehold on winning the races on Wall’s inner oval until he was unseated by championship Challenger Ryan Tidman in the last sanctioned event at Wall. Sload and Tidman who are the only drivers with wins on the Wall Flat track will certainly be favorites to wear the Laurels at the Turkey Derby.
