Racing Around

Busy slate for local speedways

June 26, 2008
By James A. Ellis

The local speedways have packed their race programs with special events this weekend.

Albany-Saratoga Speedway will host the 100-lap CVRA vs. The World big block/small block challenge.

"General Motors Presents the Return of CVRA vs. The World" will pay $8,000 to win, and $300 to take the green flag. Time trials will be run to determine heat race lineups, and the top 12 qualifiers will redraw for the feature.

The race card includes budget sportsman, pro-street stock, limited and mini-stock divisions and a fireworks display.

Adult admission to the grandstands will be $18, with $3 discount tickets for the race available at Eagle Chevrolet in Johnstown, Mangino Chevrolet in Amsterdam and Fuccillo Chevrolet in Nelliston.

At Fonda Speedway, the third annual Hondo Classic is slated for the pro stock division. The 20-lap event is dedicated to the memory of Hondo Carpenter, who was killed in an ATV accident four years ago. The list of lap sponsorships and awards continues to grow as race time draws closer. Also on Saturday's program will be a fireworks display, along with a full regular race program.

Glen Ridge Motorsports Park will host its mid-season championships with double points being offered in all divisions.

Caroga Creek Raceway also will run a regular program with the stock medium class running a special 30-lap main event. CCR will run its third leg of the King of Dirt series next week along with a "Topless Night" for the slingshot division.

Caroga Creek has a two-day racing event coming up July 11 and 12. Friday night's race program will be a regular show for the karts, while Saturday the W.K.A. tour rolls into the Ephratah facility for a special event.

A special thank you

The family of Dylan Roy would like to thank everyone for their support during a very difficult time.

A note Dylan's family and friends asked to be shared said, "Words can never adequately express our deep appreciation for the overwhelming love and kindness that has been shown to all of us during the time of our beloved Dylan's sickness and his passing due to cancer.

"It was and is greatly appreciated. Dylan received many cards, letters and special gifts from so many individuals and teams, from near and far, that it is impossible to thank each and every one of you individually, even though we have tried. To all the fans, racing writers, drivers and pit crews, your genuine concern for Dylan and his battle touched us all so deeply in our time of need. The racing community is truly a family and his wonderful spirit lives on thanks to people like you."
