Jerico Performance Heading Back to the Top of Short Track Racing

Concord, NC — In the late 1970’s, Jerry Hemmingson started Jerico Performance in Concord, North Carolina.  Winchester Capital, which owns Jerico Performance products, has brought on Mike Sangermano, a veteran in the transmission and rear end world, to head up research and development at Jerico and spearhead future growth of the company. The plan, according to Sangermano is to bring Jerico back to the forefront of short track racing as the leading transmission and rear end builder and parts supplier. 

Sangermano states that to help with this, Winchester Capital has committed all of the financial resources needed to update machinery and move the company forward. Winchester Capital likes the performance products and racing industry and is looking for other potential acquisitions, according to Sangermano.

To help him with the business, Sangermano has three-time Daytona 500-winning crew chief Waddell Wilson and a dedicated staff. Together they are bringing new life into the Jerico brand by redesigning the company’s headquarters, to planning some big changes to the Jerico business model.

Midget Hall of Fame Inductees Announced

8 Inductees Announced for National Midget Hall of Fame; Drivers Atkins, Bowe, Chennault, Copp, Eldridge, Foland, Fornoro & Knepper Latest Inductees

Eight drivers, comprise the 2017 class of inductees for the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame, which will be honored on Friday, January 12 during the annual “Chili Bowl Nationals” week at the Tulsa (Okla.) State Fairgrounds Expo.

Alphabetically they are: Dick Atkins, Roy Bowe, Bill Chennault, Tommy Copp, Bill Eldridge, Burt Foland, Drew Fornoro and Arnie Knepper.

Atkins, of Hayward, Calif., burst upon the racing scene with spectacular results in the mid-1960s, although his career was cut short in a devastating Sprint car crash at Ascot Park in Gardena, Calif. in 1966 which claimed his life and that of Don Branson. Atkins scored a USAC National Midget win at Ascot Park in 1965 and just one week before his fatal crash he recorded his most significant win in the USAC 100-Mile National Championship race at the California State Fairgrounds in Sacramento. The 1964 and 1965 Bay Cities Racing Association Champion finished in the top-20 (19th) in USAC’s 1966 National points.

Bouc Captures his Third Win of the Year while Pauch Claims the 358 Modified Title at New Egypt Speedway

New Egypt, NJ (September 6, 2017) – At New Egypt Speedway’s Championship Night presented by the Flemington Family of Dealerships, Danny Bouc captured his third 358 Modified feature of the year while Billy Pauch, Jr. claimed the 358 Modified title. Billy Osmun, III won the Hammer Sportsman feature and championship. The Northeast Wingless Sprint Car main event was won by the 2017 champion, Ryan Godown. Ryan Simmons scored the victory in the Crate Modified feature and Tommy Tanner took home the division championship. Bill Liedtka wrapped up the Street Stock title by winning the feature.

As the 30-lap 358 Modified feature got underway, John Pakenham motored to the lead with Bryan Kuhl and John McClelland in his tracks. McClelland was quickly on the move and slipped into the runner-up spot with three circuits completed. On the fifth lap, Billy Pauch, Jr. ascended into third and Danny Bouc climbed into fourth just before the only yellow flag of the contest waved for a multi-car tangle. When action resumed, Pakenham remained in control but Bouc raced into second with McClelland, Ryan Godown and Pauch, Jr. next in line. Quickly, Bouc began to pressure Pakenham for the lead and took command of the contest on lap seven. On the next circuit, McClelland raced into the runner-up spot with Godown advancing into third. On lap nine, Pauch, Jr. passed Pakenham to gain fourth place. By the halfway point, Bouc was still on top with McClelland closing and Godown, Pauch, Jr and David VanHorn trying to track down the leader. With ten laps to go, Bouc’s
advantage was only a quarter of a straightaway over McClelland as the top two were approaching the back end of the field. By lap twenty-seven, Bouc was beginning to lap some competitors to put some distance between him and McClelland. When the checkered flag waved, it was Bouc in front of the pack for his second consecutive feature win and his third victory of 2017.

McClelland’s strong run resulted in a second place finish. Third spot went to Godown. By completing the race in fourth, Billy Pauch, Jr. was able to secure his first 358 Modified championship at New Egypt Speedway. Fifth was taken by David VanHorn. Bouc and PJ Oliver were victorious in the 358 Modified heat races.

Hirschman Banks Another Tri-Track Check

Tri Track Tour Type Modifieds SBM 6
Star Speedway, Epping NH 7.29.2017

In typical Hirschman fashion, Matt came to Bobby Webbers’ Star Speedway and ran a cool, calculated pace until it was time to go, and then he went. While nearly the entire field pitted on lap 73, Hirschman made a tire change and chassis adjustment, and then rejoined the starting field in 4th position, thanks to his crew on pit road.

Hirschman took only 4 laps to power into the lead, and then hold an impressive field of competitors at bay for the next 47 laps. In Victory Lane Hirschman gave all the credit to his entire team. Hirschman said “I owe a big part of this to my guys. I had a better car on lap 100 than I had on lap 1 and it really shouldn’t be that way. We were no good at the beginning of this race and we came in and not only did we do our tire change, we made adjustments. We would not have sniffed the top 5 if we didn’t come in for the tire and change. We would have been one of the guys getting lapped, that’s how bad we were at the start of the race.”

Steve Masse and Todd Annarummo led the 27 starters to the initial green, and Masse powered his way into the lead, which he held for the first 73 laps. Masse gave up that lead when he pitted under yellow. Masse led almost every car to pit road for fresh rubber and adjustments, leaving only Matt Galko and Dylan Steuer on the track.

Hirschman continued “The caution came at the time, we needed it. They hit it (the set up) all right, and gave me so many spots. We had to pass 2 or 3 guys there, one of them didn’t have fresh tires. My guys put me ahead of all the other guys that could have won this race tonight.”

Roberts Takes Triple Crown at Aubuchon Hardware Holiday Spectacular

Barre, Vt. — Washington’s Ricky Roberts earned his second career Thunder Road Late Model victory and the Maplewood Triple Crown at the Aubuchon Hardware Holiday Spectacular on Monday, July 3.  It was the first Late Model win since 1996 for the veteran driver.

Roberts started on the pole of the 50-lap feature and built a sizeable lead over the pack. However, Northfield’s Matt White smacked the frontstretch wall on lap-39 while running third, marking the first of four late-race cautions. The yellows forced Roberts to first fend off Cody Blake and then Bobby Therrien on critical restarts. Roberts kept them and the rest of the field at bay for the win and the $800 Triple Crown bonus from Maplewood Convenience Stores.

Therrien bounced back from some tough recent fortunes to finish second while South Burlington’s Trampas Demers came on strong late to take third. Eric Badore and Eric Chase took fourth and fifth, while Blake, Mike Bailey, Darrell Morin, Tyler Cahoon, and Scott Coburn rounded out the top-10.

Korner, Tonelli, and Saia Score Summer Road Race Series Wins at Thompson

THOMPSON, CT – The second season of Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park’s Summer Road Race Series season kicked off on June 11 with competition for the Small Bore, Big Bore, and the two INEX points events for the Midstate Site Development (MSD) Legends Series.

Jordan O’Brien, the Icebreaker Road Race Series Champion, laid down the fastest lap in qualifying for the first MSD Legends, despite having mechanical challenges during the session.  He led the field to green, along with Noah Korner, who traveled all the way from Lake Erie Speedway to participate in the event. Korner darted out to the early lead, continuing his domination around Thompson’s 1.7-mile circuit.  O’Brien would continue to look inside the driver of the No. 31, but to no avail. Teddy Hodgdon had another consistent finish, rounding out the podium with Bob Weymouth and Jack Walker rounding out the top five.

Teddy Hodgdon was the recipient of two bonuses, along with Noah Korner and David Hayes. Glenn Korner, who had an engine failure in qualifying was the recipient of the Hard Luck Award, presented by J & J Racing. Korner, Hodgdon, and Bob Weymouth were the recipients of New England Racing Fuel’s five-gallon contingency program.

First Career SK Light Victory Has George Nocera, Jr. Ready for More

Stafford Springs, CT — -If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again is a mantra that could be easily applied to George Nocera, Jr.’s efforts this season in Stafford Speedway’s SK Light division.  Nocera was one of the top dogs in the Limited Late Model division, finishing second to Kevin Gambacorta by only 2 points in the race for the 2006 championship.  From there, Nocera moved with car owner Gary Bienkowski into the SK Light division where he raced in 2007 and 2008 before moving into the Late Model division in 2013.  Nocera’s previous best finish in the SK Lights was third place but that all changed this past Friday night when he put his #38 Allstate Fire Equipment machine owned by Ted Christopher into NAPA Victory Lane.

“It’s honestly an amazing feeling, especially having Ted Christopher and his crew helping us out,” said Nocera.  “It was about 10 years ago now I tried a season and a half of SK Light racing and we tried to get a win but we were never able to get one.  It’s such a great feeling to have people behind you that know what they’re doing and to be able to get back out there and run up front right from the get go.  Honestly, I thought it was going to take a little longer than it did for us to win a race.  It’s still all a little surreal to me because I had no intentions of being able to run up front right away, especially with the large car count that we have right now.  I have to thank Allstate Fire Equipment, Waste Material, M&T Enterprises, and T/A Engines for all of their support this season.”

Nocera returned to Stafford in 2013 with Bienkowski in the Late Model division but in 2 seasons of competition, he had only 4 top-10 finishes with a best effort of 8th.  Following Bienkowski selling the car, Nocera wasn’t sure he would ever return to racing.  But in working for Ted Christopher at M&T Enterprises for his full-time job, Nocera found an avenue that led to him not only being back behind the wheel, but winning races again.

Colciago and Tassi Make It a 1-2 Finish for Honda

 

Rounds 7 & 8 – 4 Hours of Monza – 12 / 14 May 2017
RACE 1 REPORT 

Colciago and Tassi make it a 1-2 finish for Honda
Vernay maintains his lead in the standings 

Roberto Colciago was the first driver to take a second win in this year’s TCR International Series. The Italian, who lives a few kilometres from the Autodromo, completed a brilliant performance in a very lively Race 1 at Monza to beat his young teammate Attila Tassi and giving M1RA and the Honda Civic an impressive 1-2 finish.

Pepe Oriola, with the Lukoil Craft-Bamboo SEAT León, finished third ahead of Jean-Karl Vernay (Leopard Racing Team WRT Volkswagen Golf GTI) who had a relatively quiet race and scored useful points that helped him to maintain the championship lead with a 24-point margin ahead of Colciago. Ferenc Ficza (Zele Motorsport SEAT León) was classified fifth, beating pole sitter Frédéric Vervisch (Cotonou Racing Audi RS3 LMS) by inches.

Once again, Monza provided the ingredients for a spectacular race, with plenty of duels and contacts that jeopardized the hopes of potential contenders such as Valente, Homola, Comini and Borković. They were all able to salvage some points at least, something that Nash, Morbidelli, van Lagen and Kajaia could not.

Opening Day Recap with Kyle Souza

After a long winter away from the track, it was great to be back on Sunday as we opened the 73rd season of racing at Seekonk Speedway. The annual Opening Day starts with Pro Stock time trials each year and there was no surprise when the time trial session was over. Former multiple time champion David Darling returned to his form, posting the fastest time of the session and setting himself up for success later in the day.

Darling started inside the top five for the 40 lap feature event on Sunday and he ended up taking down the checkered flag when it was all set and done. Behind the wheel of his No. 52, Darling took the lead late in the race from Ryan Vanasse and even though Vanasse was able to hang with him for a while, he didn’t have enough. It was a solid start to the season for Vanasse and fellow Team V teammate Bobby Pelland, with both of them running strong and finishing top three to start the year.

In the Everett’s Auto Parts Late Model feature on Sunday, it was Ryan Lineham in a borrowed ride taking down the victory. Lineham sat behind the wheel of Nick Uring’s Late Model and he took it right to the front of the pack, finishing second in his heat race and taking down the win during a late-race dash to the finish. Lineham worked the outside of Ray Parent into turn one in one of the final circuits and he was able to hold on and take down the victory. Although Parent came home with a second-place finish behind the wheel of his Anytime Realty No. 98, the car was disqualified for having incorrect fuel in the fuel cell, which was a tough break for him. With the DQ, Austin Blais moved up to second spot and leads the list of championship contenders going into week two.

Eighteen-Year-Old Embedded with American Team while Racing in GP3 Series

KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (May 8, 2017) – American Santino Ferrucci will continue as a Haas F1 Team development driver in 2017 while simultaneously competing in his second full-time season in the GP3 Series for DAMS.

Schatz Wins at 81 Speedway

Donny Schatz wins Outlaws return to 81 Speedway to score eighth victory of the season

PARK City, KS.- May 7, 2017Quite a bit has changed over the last 11 years since the last Donny Schatz had raced at 81 Speedway, prior to Saturday night. The track surface was reconfigured before this season, while the tires and wings on the cars have also changed over the last decade. One things that didn’t change was the end result as he won for the second straight time at the three-eights-mile as the Outlaws returned to 81 Speedway for the Kansas Outlaw Klassic presented by Great Clips, Murphy Tractor and the City of Park City, Kansas.

Schatz’s second consecutive win at 81 Speedway had extra meaning, as his crew chief Ricky Warner and his wife, have family members from the area, who are involved with the operations at 81 Speedway.

“This is like a hometown win for Rick and Danele Warner,” said Schatz. “Rick has been with me a long time and we have won a lot of races together. The last time we were here, we won and were fortunate to get here again tonight. It was a great crowd tonight and it’s great to see all of the enthusiasm here. It’s incredible to be standing here in front of them winning.”

Schatz started on the pole and led all 30 laps, but had a very close call, after some contact, when a pair of lapped cars got together right in front of him on the 18th lap. Despite sustaining some damage to his machine, the North Dakota native was able to lead flag-to-flag.

“The (No.) 4 car stopped and I got into him there,” noted Schatz. “I thought I was going over and when I got away from him I could steer, but I knew something was bent in the front. It obviously bent the front axle, but it didn’t really hurt me much. It might have actually helped me.”

On the double file restart, which was the only restart of the 30-lap main event, Schatz chose the low side of the three-eighths-mile, with Jason Johnson lined up beside him. A strong restart propelled Schatz as Johnson, David Gravel, and Daryn Pittman all battled for second.

“We just had the car rolling and are trying a lot of funky things right now and there are a lot of weird pieces on this race car, but we are learning,” explained Schatz. “Sometimes you pay the price and April was that time, so May is going a lot better.”

Pittman used a last lap pass of Gravel to earn his second consecutive runner-up finish, as he continues to close in on his first win of the season in the Great Clips, No. 9 for Kasey Kahne Racing. Pittman started second and looked on the low side of the track a couple of times in the early going as he kept pace with Schatz.

“We are bringing better race cars to the track,” said Pittman. “Eric Prutzman is making great changes as the night goes on. Getting in the dash has been huge with the extra track time. Most of the headway we have made with our race cars the last two nights has been in the dash. That’s really been key. When the car is faster, it’s a lot more fun to drive.”

Pittman started second and kept pace with Schatz for the first few laps, before losing a couple of positions. Late in the race, he had an entertaining battle with Gravel and Johnson for the runner-up position.

“We had to fight hard for that one,” shared Pittman. “We fell back to fourth and got by Jason (Johnson) after the yellow. (David) Gravel got caught up by a few lapped cars and we were able to get back by him coming to the checkers. It was a good finish and a good weekend for us.”

Gravel continued his strong season by picking up his 13th top-five finish of the season, with a third-place finish. The Connecticut native ran as high as second in the late going and was keeping up with Schatz in open track, before having some trouble getting by slower cars.

“Lapped cars were pretty tough, they were running pretty high and made it pretty difficult,” said Gravel. “It was hard to tell where they were going to go. Daryn (Pittman) got by me, but I think we had a second-place car. I just wish we could have qualified a little better to get in the dash and get another shot at the race track. If we had started on the front two rows, I think we could have gotten the win. We’ll take our podium and move on to the next race.”

Johnson finished fourth, with Brad Sweet in fifth. Shane Stewart worked his way from the 16th starting spot to finish sixth. Logan Schuchart was seventh, with Aaron Reutzel eighth, Jason Sides ninth and rookie Brent Marks 10th.

The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series returns to action at the famed Eldora Speedway in Ohio on Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13.

Ian Madsen Holds Them Off in Classic Knoxville Showdown

Clint Garner Pounces in Traffic in 360’s, Ryan Leavitt Scores Emotional 305 Win

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (May 6, 2017) – Few tracks put on the thrilling action that the Knoxville Raceway produces week in and week out, but Saturday night’s 410 sprint feature on Budweiser Night was one to remember! St. Mary’s, New South Wales, Australia native Ian Madsen held off Brian Brown at the line to record his eighth career win here. The 360 main event was no less dramatic. Clint Garner shot by Ryan Roberts in heavy lapped traffic to record his 29th career win here. And last, but not least, rookie and third generation driver, Ryan Leavitt took home top honors in the 305 class.

Madsen led Lynton Jeffrey, Ohio visitor Chad Kemenah, Brooke Tatnell and his brother, Kerry Madsen, early in the 20-lap 410 main event. Only a lap was completed when Rager Phillips spun in turn two, bringing the caution flag. On the restart, Tatnell used the cushion to move into third, while Brian Brown jumped from eighth (where he started as high point man with an invert of the same number) to the top five.

With seven laps in, it looked like Terry McCarl’s night may be over when something went awry in the suspension and he slowed, but simultaneously, Tatnell slowed to a stop in turn four, bringing another yellow flag. McCarl made repairs and joined the tail, while Ian led the field back to green, ahead of Jeffrey, Kemenah, Brown and Tim Kaeding.

PRACTICE: Coby Back On Top

Four-Time Champion Tops Chart for Whelen Modified’s Sizzler

STAFFORD, Conn — After starting the 2017 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season with two finishes outside the top-10, four-time and defending series champion Doug Coby is looking to get back on track.

Behind the wheel of his Mayhew Tools No. 2, Coby posted a fast time of 17.976 seconds, which put him at the top of the charts in the first session. He completed the second and final practice in ninth spot.

Szegedy’s lap was fast enough to be the quickest time in the final practice session. Timmy Solomito, who has started the season with two straight top two finishes, posted a time good enough for fifth in the practice runs.

Broedel Energy Returns as the Official Fuel Supplier of Utica-Rome Speedway and Title Sponsor for the Dirtcar Sportsman

 VERNON, NY- Utica-Rome Speedway is proud the return of Broedel Energy as a marketing partner and the Official Fuel Supplier for the second consecutive season.  Broedel Energy will take over as the title sponsor of the popular DIRTcar Sportsman division, which will now be labeled as the Broedel Energy DIRTcar Sportsman for the 2017 season.
 
Since 2001, the Hubbardsville NY-based Broedel Energy has been providing delivery of Propane Gas, Fuel Oil, Kerosene, Diesel Fuel, and Gasoline homes, farms, and businesses in the communities of Madison, Oneida, Chenango, and parts of Herkimer, Onondaga, and Otsego counties.  In addition to these services, Broedel Energy is now offering Heating & Air Conditioning Sales, Service, and Installation.  As a family owned company, Broedel Energy prides themselves in offering exceptional customer service, timely deliveries, and affordable pricing.

Jeff Baral Gets Boost with New Sponsors at Stafford

Stafford Springs, CT — Stafford SK Modified® driver and Southington native Jeff Baral will welcome two new sponsors to his #18 team for the 2017 season.  Baral is hopeful that the new sponsorship will yield a return to the top-5 of the SK Modified® points standings this season.

“We’ve always had good equipment and good help but we’ve never had the financial backing to show what we can do,” said Baral.  “With the help of 2 new sponsors, Island Coffee Company and TR Landworks along with returning sponsors, The Wheel Shop, Morrison and Johnson, and Arbitell Convenience Stores, I definitely think we’re going to have a good boost.  I have some really great crew guys with Jamie, Barry, Jeff, Scott, Glen, Lou and with Jimmy Fuller helping us out on the chassis and Mike Pettit on the motor, I think we can have a great year.”

Island Coffee is based out of Long Island with many distribution outlets throughout the northeast and they have been in business since 1977.  Island Coffee is sold to the majority of your local convenience stores so be sure to grab an Island Coffee every Friday night on your way to and from Stafford Motor Speedway.  TR Landworks is based in East Hartland and they specialize in clearing multiple acres of land for wildlife habitat; creation, maintenance, and reclamation.  They are also well suited for farm land restoration and all forms of land maintenance and clearing.

Baral made a full-time return to the SK Modified® division last year after not racing a full season since 2010.  Baral has 7 SK Modified® feature wins in his Stafford career between 2003 and 2006. Those were also the best seasons of Baral’s career as he finished 6th and 7th in the points in 2004, 2005, and 2006.  Despite having never cracked the top-5 in the final points standings in a season, Baral says that is his goal for the 2017 season along with getting his #18 back into NAPA Victory Lane for the first time since June 9, 2006.

“Honestly I’d like to win a couple of races this year and compete for a top-5 spot in the points standings,” said Baral.  “We’d also like to be more consistent with our race finishes.  With consistency comes points and race wins.  Going back in my career, we had a stretch where we weren’t worse than 7th in points and with Jimmy Fuller helping us out this season, I think the car is better now than it ever was then.  A championship would obviously be great.”

Last season saw Baral and the #18 team miss three races but they still finished well enough in their starts to end the season in 14th place in the standings.  While the season was full of ups and downs for Baral, he recorded three top-10 finishes in his final 5 starts, including a season-best second place finish in the final Friday night race of the year.  This stretch of races gives Baral confidence that he can match his pre-season goals of finishing in the top-5 in the points as well as getting back to NAPA Victory Lane.

“The car was always really good last year, we just didn’t always have the results to show,” said Baral.  “We’ve gone through the car and rebuilt everything and freshened up the motor so I think we can have a fast car every week this season.  We just need to have a little luck on our side.  We’ve been at Stafford long enough to know all the ups and downs.  Racing is such that there’s usually a lot more downs than ups but we’re hoping that we can have a season with more highs than lows this year.

Tickets for the “Greatest Race in the History of Spring,” the 46th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Spring Sizzler are on sale now at the Speedway Box Office.  Tickets are priced at $40.00 for adult general admission tickets, $5.00 for children ages 6-14, and children ages 5 and under are admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult.  Reserved seating is priced at $42.00 for all ages.  As always, Stafford Motor Speedway offers free parking with overnight parking available.  Tickets are good for both Saturday and Sunday admission.  All ticket prices include 10% CT Admission Tax.

High Five: Donny Schatz Wins Gerdau Magic City Showdown for Fifth Straight Year at Nodak Speedway

MINOT, N.D. – August 28, 2016 – It took Donny Schatz until his seventh start to win at his home track of Nodak Speedway in Minot, North Dakota with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series. Since that victory in 2012, he been undefeated in the Gerdau Magic City Showdown. Schatz extended his win streak at Nodak Speedway to five, after leading flag-to-flag on Sunday night at the three-eighths-mile.
Schatz started second and on the initial start ran second to pole sitter Logan Schuchart, but the first caution flag of the night flew before the lap was complete. That led to a complete restart and on the second start, Schatz was able to dive under Schuchart on the front straightaway to officially lead the first lap. Schatz was in traffic just five laps into the race and like his win on Friday night at River Cities Speedway, he masterfully weaved his way through the lapped machines.
“They are all special and they are all good,” said Schatz of his five wins at Nodak Speedway. “The trophies here are awesome and so are the people. Everything about this place is great. I’ll tell you what’s really great, and that is this race team. These guys (on my crew) deserve to be standing here. The race car they prepare each day is incredible. I’m the lucky guy that gets to drive it and looks good. Their hard work is what pays off and gets us to victory lane.”

Mother Nature Forces Another Evergreen Raceway Cancellation

St. Johns, PA (8/20/2016)- In what seems to be an ongoing battle with Mother Nature, Evergreen Raceway officials have made the decision to cancel their event that was slated for Sunday, August 21. The show, which was supposed to highlight the Tour-Type Modifieds, won’t be rescheduled due to the next Tour Type Modified being just a few weeks away. It’s slated for Sunday, September 11.

“I absolutely hate it for the racers and their fans”, noted track promoter, Jason Makarewicz.   “We kept a close eye on the forecast for the last three days and all its done was get worse. We also kicked around the idea of making up this special Modified show on the same day as our next Enduro. The idea was a great one, but unfortunately that won’t happen because of the Tour Modifieds being on the schedule for the week following the Enduro.” He continued, “Thanks to Mother Nature, we definitely learned this year. I and a lot of others are just really looking forward the near perfect fall racing weather.”

With the slew of cancellations over the last month and a half, many of the track’s regular divisions have been on the sidelines. Many of them are excited to be back on the asphalt next Sunday, August 28, including the Evergreen Modifieds, Street Stocks, Factory Stocks and Four Cylinders. A Powder Puff race is also on the schedule for the Four Cylinder and Factory Stocks/Street Stocks.
