NASCAR WMT Visits Riverhead Twice in 2015
Great news to start off our first off season Eye On Riverhead comes from promoters Barbara & Jim Cromarty who disclosed today that the 2015 Opening Weekend at Riverhead Raceway Saturday May 2nd and Sunday May 3rd. Of course it will be the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series stock cars kicking off their season on Saturday May 2nd while the Enduro season will go green the next afternoon May 3rd. The two pre-season practice days will take place on Saturday April 18th and again the following week April 25th.
The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will once again make two visits with the first race set for the tradition last Saturday in June that being June 27th in 2015. The second WMT event will unfold a tad earlier this year as the Saturday August 29th has been tabbed as the date for the second 200-lapper for the popular series. The entire 2015 schedule is still in the works as Barbara Cromarty works her magic and will be released in the weeks to come.
A quick reminder that your truly will be once again hosting the Long Island Automotive Swap Shop on Sunday December 7th in the pit area of the track. It’s time to clean out the garage and turn all that stuff you been tripping over into cold hard cash. Robert Clock will be on hand once again with his huge photo album collection for those who like to take a look back to the golden era of racing. Last year was indeed a very successful Swap Shop and from all indications this year will be bigger and better. The biggest item moved last year was when Gary Fritz Sr. bought Chris Young’s enclosed ramp truck. Don’t miss out on either selling or buying this year. It is just $20 per vendor spot and a $5 general admission, so come on out!
