"Internet message boards are the worst thing to happen to racing since rain-outs.

 For every insightful, worthwhile comment, there are about 10 “eye-rollers”, and 10 or 20 mean spirited comments that do nothing to build our sport and only frustrate and annoy the sponsors, promoters and participants."

Dirt Track Girl is Goin' Racing!

We are loading up our trailer and coming to a track near you!

We will be traveling with CRSA Sprint Cars for the 2014 Racing Season

 

Ok tough girl, let's go shopping. You need to look hot in the pits or in the stands.

 Always show your style, even at work and school. Dirt Track Girl is the best in women's clothing with a dirt track theme. You can be bold and shout how much you like to get dirty, or you can discretely wear your passion in a way that only you and your racer know what it's all about.

Remember: Tough and Sexy Always!

 


 

 

 

Practice at Yates County Speedway in Dundee will take place this Friday, April 25th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. 

 

 “We have had multiple requests for season passes, reserved seats and concrete pad rentals”, said Harpell. “Anyone that would like to take care of that can do so on Friday. I would enjoy the opportunity to get to know our drivers and fans when it isn’t a busy race night”, he added.

A pit membership is new for 2014. While they are not mandatory, you will have to be a member to be eligible for point fund money. Purchasing a pit license will save you $5.00 off admission during the regular season. Pit memberships are $50 until May 30th. They will go up to $60 after May 30th and will not be available after July 4th.

 

The huge Grand Opening will take place on Friday, May 2nd featuring the CRSA Sprint Cars along with a full show of all divisions. Abtex Corporation has signed on as the title sponsor for opening night. Abtex, located in Dresden, NY, manufactures deburring machines and deburring brushes.

For further information look us up on Facebook under Yates County Speedway or check out our website at yatescountyspeedway.com. The office phone number during the week is 607-595-4100 and the raceday phone is 607-243-8686.

Patriot Sprint Tour Season Starts Saturday at Merrittville

Spring Sizzler Kicks off 3rd PST Canada Season

 

Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (April 18, 2014)- It was a dreadful winter for much of Patriot Sprint Tour landscape but heading in to the season opener it is all systems go for an invasion at one of the most anticipated tour stops.

 

This Saturday, for the second consecutive season, the Patriot Sprint Tour Canada Series gets underway at the Merrittville Speedway in Southern Ontario.  In last season’s lid-lifter, Steve Poirier held off a wild late-race challenge from Justin Barger to score the win and eventually go on to the 2013 PST Canada Championship.  A host of drivers are looking to pull a similar feat at the 3/8-mile this year to go wire-to-wire to score the $5,000 prize that is up for grabs for the 2014 Championship.

 

Poirier is a favorite at any race he enters, but the defending Spring Sizzler winner will contend with a number of drivers that have a knack for getting around the d-shaped oval.  Jason Barney, who was runner-up in the PST Canada standings in 2013, has a third place effort at Merrittville last April and thrives on tactical race tracks such as Merrittville.

 

2013 PST America Champion Jared Zimbardi has four career top 10 finishes in five starts in Thorold.  But it is fellow past PST Champions Scott Kreutter and Bryan Howland who have each have won at the Bicknell/Williamson-Owned Facility, with Howland doing it on two occasions.

 

PST America regulars that will be traveling north include Don Adamczyk, Steve Collins, Steven Hutchinson Jr., Tommy Wickham and Todd Hoddick.  PST Canada regulars Glenn Styres, Keith Dempster, Jamie Collard and Chris Jones are also names expected to be on hand.

 

Of course a race at Merrittville would not be complete without the groundswell of local teams that circled this date on their schedule early on.  Mikey Kruchka, Chris Steele, Tom and Jim Huppunen, Stan Zanchin, Zach Zumpe, Conor Mahoney, Jamie Turner and Brad Malloy just scratch the surface of names that could be present this weekend.

 

Pit gates for this special event will swing open at 3:00 P.M., with heat racing getting underway at 7:00 P.M.  Stay up-to-speed with all that his happening this Saturday by following the Patriot Sprint Tour on Twitter or liking the Patriots Tour on Facebook. For additional information, visit www.PatriotSprintTour.com.

Bitner Automotive Blistering Fast Time Award Announced foe the Lucas Empire Super Sprints.

 

SYRACUSE, NY - As the official full point opener is just a little over a week away, new companies continue to add their name to the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) sponsorship family.  The latest is Bitner Automotive out of Trenton, NJ.

Bitner Automotive will be backing the nightly Blistering Fast Time Award at all ESS full point events. The driver that posts the overall fast time during the heats, dash, B-Main or A-Main will receive a cash bonus for their efforts.

 

Mark Bitner himself pilots a winged sprint car himself.  He will run winged 360 and 410 events and when the annual USAC Eastern Storm comes in June, he will take he wing off and have some fun.  The racing veteran will also dab into some ESS events looking to be in the field at Selinsgrove and possibly the SUNY Canton CNY Speedweek.

 

The chase for the 2014 Lucas Oil ESS championship starts Friday night, Apr. 25 at the Can-Am Motorsports Park.  Steve Poirier will be looking for his fifth title but the challenges will be stiff from drivers such as Paul Kinney, Jason Barney, Chuck Hebing, Kevin Ward Jr., Jeff Cook, Matt Tanner, Shawn Donath, Patrick Vigneault and a whole slew of other top 360 drivers from NY and Canada.

 

It's the 31st Anniversary Tour, the very best of America's Race Cars and as the tradition continues it will be excitement guaranteed!

Registrations for New Egypt Speedway's All Star Cup Shootout are available on their website, www.newegyptspeedway.net. You must register before the end of April and the cost is only $50. The registration form is under the 2014 Forms button on the front page.

The All Star Cup Shootout is a points series which is held throughout the season at your home track or region and comes to a close on September 20th with an All Star race held at New Egypt Speedway.

You will accumulate All Star points from your eight best finishes with the CRSA Sprint Car Tour. Then add in the points from the All Star race on 9/20 to come up with the final point standings. The champion will receive $3005 and it will pay back through the field quite well. The winner of the All Star race will also receive $3005 for the win, making it possible for someone to receive a possible $6010 if they are also the All Star Champion! CRSA is an official region in the All Star Cup Shootout.

If you’re interested in starting your season early to shake down your new ride, New Egypt Speedway has invited all CRSA members to their sprint car opener, which will be held this Saturday April 12. No special license is required and it is an open draw for starting positions. It's a good time to get a feel of the race track as a preview for Sept. 20.

 

CRSA Sprint Car Tour Readies for 2014 Season

With the car shows now behind us...the CRSA Sprint Car Tour readies for the upcoming racing season. Membership cards are being sent out, rulebooks are being printed, and sticker packs are being assembled. The racers are going through their cars for the upcoming season, freshening engines, painting frames and repairing anything may cause any damage that will prevent them from finishing an all important points race.


The 2014 schedule is out and is quite busy this year. The quality of racing that we showcase is second to none! Not too many organizations can boast to having eleven different winners out of seventeen races! We have twenty seven CRSA events scheduled at ten different racetracks. After a years absence, we are returning to the Glen Ridge Motorsports Park for three Sunday events and we are heading up the mountain for a "Sprint Car Saturday Night" at the Thunder Mountain Speedway, an all winged event that is combined with the Empire Super Sprints and the SRP 600 Micro Sprints. New to the Tour this year is our first ever trip to the high banks of the Lebanon Valley Speedway. This prestigious half mile race track is located in West Lebanon, NY which lies just east of Albany and not too far from the Massachusetts border. A proven sprint car facility, as the ESS and the WOO both make yearly appearances there with huge crowds at attendance.


In addition to our overall Tour Points battle, we have four separate point battles going on during the year:
The Algonkin Motel Challenge returns for its fourth consecutive year honoring the top three most consistent racers from all the events held at the I-88 Speedway in 2014. Last years champ was Delhi, NY native, Dustin Purdy in the #83.


The Northway-90 Challenge, brought to you by Kennedy Towing of Troy, also returns for its second season. This series consists of race tracks in the Capital Region of NYS. This year, the top five racers will be awarded for their efforts after accumulating points gathered at the Fonda Speedway, Glen Ridge Motorsports Park, Albany-Saratoga Speedway and the Lebanon Valley Speedway. Last year’s Champ was local mod pilot, Danny Varin driving the Dan Cuomo #07p.


New to the series this year is the Southern Tier Challenge which is sponsored by E&H Services LLC., owned and operated by CRSA racer, Ed Newhauser. The southern tier tracks include, Orange County Fair Speedway, Penn Can Speedway, and the Five Mile Point Speedway. The top five will be awarded at the end of the 2014 season which will conclude at the Five Mile Point Speedway on October 31.


Another new sponsor this season, Dirt Track Girl Racing Apparel, has stepped up to sponsor the two races which were left out of the other Challenge races. DTG owner, Kelly Gell, has decided to award the top three highest points getters after the races held at Black Rock Speedway and the Thunder Mountain Speedway. Called the"DTG Western Roundup", this mini-series includes both tracks we race at west of I-81.


There is lots of excitement building in the CRSA Sprint Car Tour for this year! We have some new drivers coming into the mix as well as some older drivers returning after a year or two off the tour.


There will be a merchandise trailer at most races operated by Dirt Track Girl Racing Apparel. The new CRSA t-shirts and hoodies have arrived and will be alongside all the DTG merchandise. This trailer will be put in the grandstand area during the races for the fans and will be brought into the pits afterwards. Any drivers who would like to have shirts made or sell the ones you have, see Kelly at DTG and she can make it happen.
We are looking forward to a great season! See ya there!!!

“SALUTE TO CHAMPION STEVE KINSER” SPECIAL EXHIBITION TO DEBUT AT THE NATIONAL SPRINT CAR MUSEUM IN JUNE

 

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (April 16, 2014) – The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum in Knoxville is pleased to announce that this year’s featured attraction will be the “Salute to Champion Steve Kinser” special exhibition.  The display, consisting of at least six cars that the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee drove during his illustrious career, will be in the non-profit museum from June 13 through November 1.  It follows similar exhibitions honoring Tony Stewart (2011), Jeff Gordon (2012) and Mario Andretti (2013).

 

According to museum curator Thomas J. Schmeh, “I have to thank Steve and Dana Kinser, and Misha Geisert of Tony Stewart Racing, for their unbridled enthusiasm in helping us plan for this unique display of vehicles and memorabilia.  I also give my sincere appreciation to the current owners of the Steve Kinser-driven race cars that we will have on display: the Robert Karnell family; Alan Kreitzer and Lynn Paxton of the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing (EMMR); Chuck Merrill of Maxim Chassis; Dana Kinser and Tony Stewart.  Words cannot truly express my sincere gratitude to all of these generous people.”

 

The “Salute to Champion Steve Kinser” special exhibition will coincide with the King’s final full season on the World of Outlaws (WoO) STP Sprint Car Series in 2014.  In fact, it will debut on the weekend of the WoO Mediacom Shootout on June 14 at the legendary half-mile Knoxville Raceway, at which the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is located.

 

Said museum executive director Bob Baker today, “This display, featuring the race cars and a lot of other Steve Kinser-related art and artifacts, will only be able to be seen together at one place this year and that is here at the ‘Sprint Car Capital of the World.’  This will be a must-see attraction for the legion of fans of the 20-time World of Outlaws champion and 12-time Knoxville Nationals winner.”

CASEY’S GENERAL STORES PLEDGES $25,000 TO NATIONAL SPRINT CAR MUSEUM’S “EXPAND THE DREAM” CAMPAIGN

 

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (February 28, 2014) -  Casey’s General Stores has renewed its commitment to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum by pledging $25,000 to the museum foundation’s “Expand the Dream” campaign.  The announcement was made this week by Casey’s General Stores president & CEO Robert J. Myers and museum executive director Bob Baker.  Said Bob Myers today, “Casey’s has been involved with the Museum since the very beginning and we are delighted to continue our involvement.”

 

According to Bob Baker, “The expression ‘since day one’ is sometimes over-used, but it definitely isn’t when referring to Casey’s commitment to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation.  They have literally been involved from the days of our non-profit incorporation and the creation of our founding board of directors back in the mid-Eighties.  Their involvement has not just been ‘support’ from the outside, but it has been ‘commitment’ from the inside.  And, for that fact, we are truly appreciative.”

 

For more information on the 501(c)(3) non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum Foundation and its “Expand the Dream” campaign to raise money for a brand-new storage and staging facility and for increasing its overall endowment fund, please contact executive director Bob Baker at 641-842-6176.

 

 

3M DONATES $25,000 TO KNOXVILLE AND THE NATIONAL SPRINT CAR MUSEUM’S “EXPAND THE DREAM” CAMPAIGN

 

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (January 30, 2014) -  The 3M Foundation has once again shown its commitment to Knoxville and the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum by donating $25,000 to the museum foundation’s “Expand the Dream” campaign.  Representing the Knoxville 3M plant this week at the check presentation were Todd Weber and Tracinda Yaw, while executive director Bob Baker represented the 501(c)(3) national non-profit museum.  3M employee and museum board member Mike Husted was also present at the ceremony.

 

“This is not 3M’s first donation to the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum,” said Tracinda Yaw, 3M Knoxville plant manager.  “And this won’t be our last gift either.”

 

According to Bob Baker, “We can’t thank the 3M Foundation enough for their continued support of our efforts of ‘promoting the future by preserving the past’ history of the sport of sprint car racing.  As Expand the Dream campaign chair Don Lamberti would say, ‘Now is not the time to let off the gas; we need to keep pushing the accelerator down.’   The museum foundation’s campaign is over halfway towards its goal of raising money for a brand-new storage and staging facility and increasing its overall endowment fund.”

 

For more information on this donation, please contact 3M Community Affairs at 651-733-0144.  For more information on the non-profit National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum, please contact executive director Bob Baker at 641-842-6176.

USAC Silver Crown Series Joins ‘Racing’s Biggest Party’ during NAPA Super DIRT Week in October 2014 at N.Y. State Fairgrounds

Open-wheel stars join stout field of Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds, DIRTcar 358-Modifieds, DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds and DIRTcar Pro Stocks at Syracuse

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Nov. 20, 2013 – Al Unser topped Mario Andretti and a field of open-wheel superstars the first time the USAC Silver Crown Series raced at the New York State Fairgrounds “Moody Mile” in 1974. Now, 40 years after that historic event, the USAC Silver Crown Series will return in October 2014 to Syracuse during the 43rd annual NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week.

 

The USAC Silver Crown Series will tackle the Mile on Saturday, Oct. 11, along with the showcase 150-mile event for the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series. The DIRTcar Sportsman Modified feature will shift to Sunday, Oct. 12, where it will join the DIRTcar Pro Stock event and the Super DIRTcar Series’ premier $50,000-to-win Syracuse 200.

 

“We’re excited to bring the Silver Crown Series back to Syracuse,” said USAC President Kevin Miller. “Super DIRT Week is such an historic event, and we are definitely looking forward to putting on a show for the passionate race fans that have been going there for more than 40 years.”

NAPA Super DIRT Week at the New York State Fairgrounds will kick off on Wednesday, Oct. 8, with a Big-Block Modified Happy Hour practice before Thursday’s qualifying runs for the Big-Blocks and 358-Modifieds. The USAC Silver Crown cars will hit the Mile on Friday afternoon for a practice session along with the Futures events, followed by “Friday Night Lights” featuring the Sportsman Modified Triple 10s, the 358-Modified Twin 20s and the Big-Block Modified Triple 20s.

 

All of that sets the stage for two huge days of racing Saturday and Sunday on the Mile.

“The USAC Silver Crown Series has a rich history at Syracuse, and we’re thrilled to welcome them back in 2014,” said World Racing Group CEO Brian Carter. “We’re always trying to enhance our events for our fans. We have incredible racing at Syracuse with the Big-Blocks, 358-Modifieds, Sportsman and Pro Stocks, now bringing the Silver Crown cars back to the Mile will make the week even bigger for everybody.”

The USAC Silver Crown Series last raced on the Syracuse Mile in 2003 during NAPA Super DIRT Week, with J.J. Yeley taking the checkered flag.

5 Alcohol-Burning Engine Maintenance Tips

With all the talk about ethanol and E85 lately, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit five important tips if you're considering making the switch away from gas

 

From the December, 2010 issue of Circle Track

By Rob Fisher

 

With all the talk about ethanol, methanol, and E85 in the pages of Circle Track recently, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit five important maintenance-oriented tips where these fuels are concerned.

 

 

1. Buy Weekly
Alcohol fuels are hygroscopic, which means over time they will start to absorb water, and this is never a good thing. Old methanol, for example, that has been sitting around the shop almost certainly will eventually experience this problem. While good storage practices go a long way in preserving any fuel, the easiest way to avoid a problem is to purchase only the amount you will use to go racing on a particular evening the day before the race. Granted you will be buying fuel every week, but at least you know it will always be fresh.

 

 

Drain the remaining alcohol, fill the fuel cell with gasoline, and run the engine. Once it starts to sputter and eventually dies you will know that the system has been flushed. Any traces of methanol can corrode the entire fuel system, which leads us to our next point.

 

 

 

Note-be extremely careful when handling methanol. It's easily absorbed through the skin, and prolonged exposure can lead to health issues. In the event that methanol does come in contact with your skin, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water.

 

 

 

5. Always Inspect the Bypass Valve
Sprint Car guys should all know this, but you should check the high-speed bypass valve on a regular basis. Most teams will work with this bypass valve to ensure that the engine is getting as much fuel as possible. They often change the "pill" and bypass valve to send more or less fuel to the engine.

Western New York Racing is proud to announce the start of our WNY Motocross Hall of Fame to honor and recognize people who helped to advance the sport of Motocross throughout our region. 

 

Every progression in the sport is owed a debt to the roots and foundation, and we honored five past racers that made significant contributions locally to the sport we all love.  The inaugural class will consist of five pioneering racers from the 70's era and were inducted in the 2010 banquet on January 15th 2011. 

 

Inductees:  Mike Robinson, Dave Robinson, Mike Lauterborn, Bill Scheemaker, Roy Janson


WNYRacing is dedicated to honoring the many great people from our region who
have been an inspiration to others and we look forward to sharing their
accomplishments with our racing community and the next generation of MotoStars.
