FONDA — Despite afternoon showers, Fonda Speedway fended off Mother Nature on Saturday. The racing card featured the regular division, plus a visit by the Empire Super Sprints.

Three features were completed as of press time and the winners were Billy August (limited sportsman), John Young (street stock) and Ken Hollenbeck (four-cylinders). Fonda Speedway is scheduled to host the Kenny Wallace Driving Experience today.

Participants can choose from a legends modified, late model, UMP modified or sprint car. Participants may drive 10 laps for $99 or 15 laps for $149. For more information, visit

Next Saturday, Fonda will host its final point races of the season during the annual Night of Features. The modifieds will compete in twin 20-lap features, while all other classes also will be in action before the track takes its annual break for the Fonda Fair.
