For many of you racers that are looking to travel, the 1st Super National weekend will be held March 8,9 and 10th at Southern Raceway in Milton,FL.It will include World Series points races for the All Stars and Juniors.For this event Rich has opened up the 1 class only per event rule and will allow the Juniors to run both classes for the Southern Raceway weekend.I'm awaiting the pit pass costs and projected payouts.

The Sammons Indoor Racing Series season is now over after the 2 day event at Albany's Times Union Arena.Taking the overall point championship is the 2009 All Star National Champion,"The Captain" Cody Kline in the Miller Motorsports # 66X.Winners in this 4 race series were Danny Buccafusca @ Allentown,Brett Bieber @ Atlantic City and Steve Svanda and Nick Del Campo @ Albany.Thanks to everyone for your support of these events as a race team member or as a fan.

The 2018 Hamlin and Linda's schedules have been released,the 2018 Action Track USA schedule has been out and the tour schedule has been sent out with the owners packets.Owners packets were mailed out on Feb 8th for anyone that did not get their's at AC or Albany.There seemed to be a lot of new teams that wanted already taken car numbers,so please bear with everyone if I left an already taken number be used again.In the last 4 days I had to ask teams to add letters or use another number.

Talk from the north was that Mr. Catlin at Skyline Park Raceway in Cortland,NY is that he was looking to add more Slingshot races to his 2018 schedule.They already have a 2018 National Series race on May 20th and have given the Slingshots a July 21st date for some cash and bragging rights.

I have reposted the tours on Facebook's group page and tired to make it clear as to what classes will be featured with Bridgeport not allowing any driver under 14,so the Junior race there will not be run.Also the Slide at the Clyde 6 at LANCO on June 23rd is also a All Star only event.The August 15th Junior race at AT USA is for Juniors only the All Star Super National is being run on the 16th as part of the Super National weekend with Linda's on the 17th and Pocono Int Raceway on the 18th.

 A few simple words of advice,if buying a used engine or carburetor,please make sure you know where they are coming from and where they were worked on.

The Reading Fairgrounds Racing Reunion is slotted for Feb 23,24 and 25 at the Pioneer Pole Building center on Rt 183 in Schuylkill Haven,PA.If anyone would like to display their cars,please contact Brad Reinert on Facebook.

The SE / AT USA Awards Banquet is Friday Feb 2nd.Doors open at 5PM,buffet will be open at 6PM and awards ceremony will follow.Bear Creek Resort is in Macungie,PA.I will have t-shirts along with the inventory that is left.

I will be at the shop on Sat Feb 3rd from 9AM to 1PM weather permitting,but right now it looks promising.

We are looking into having the shock covers back into our inventory as the sizes were given to a company looking to make them for us.Our previous supplier has discontinued those services.

Albany Indoor info was to be released by Sammons Motorsports in regards to car drop off and trailer parking.Both nights are 2 individual events.

Registrations are coming in daily,we will be taking all owners packets to the banquet and to Albany,from what is not taken,they will be mailed out.Hopefully they will not sit in a NY Post Office for 11 weeks like they have in the past.

The tour schedule is being revised,a mixup in the Feb. dates for Flomaton and NW Florida is being addressed right now.We are in communication with Southern Speedway in Milton,FL for a complete weekend at their facility.We hope to have it finalized by Monday.Rich will possibly address this at the banquet.

Looking over the schedules I took notice of the AT USA dates in August and as of now the Junior National will be run on August 15th and the All Star Slingshot Super National run on August 16th.The All Star Slingshot Super National will open the 3 day Super National slate with Linda's slated for August 17th and Pocono Int. Raceway for Aug.18th.

Memorial Day weekend will have the regular Friday and Saturday tracks racing with Lanco slotting the Slingshots in on Sunday May 27th and Action Track USA on Monday May 28th.

The May 6th Spirit Speedway @ Bridgeport will be All Stars only because of age restrictions in New Jersey.

Skyline Raceway Park is looking at building a smaller oval using the infield and race track similar to Bridgeport.They are also looking at adding the Slingshots to the dates they plan on racing when this track is built.They also have asked the All Stars and Juniors to race in their Sunday July 22nd event.Jim Pollard is looking to coordinate more dates there.

I will be here weather permitting on Feb 3rd from 9 to 1 PM for parts,pickup or drop off,registrations or what is left of the t-shirts.

This is a friendly reminder that if you did not get your 2017 Champions shirt there are certain sizes that are dwindling fast.Here is the up to date inventory after Motorsports: Small 13  Med 2  Large 12  XL 4  XXL 9 and XXXL 5.I'll gladly bring them to AC and I also have some on hold for a banquet delivery.There is no current plans for a reprinting,so when they are gone that is all.

Please make sure your car is registered for the 2018 season.It does not matter if you are just an indoor racer or a weekly racer or a tour racer,the car must be registered for the 2018 season.

The Pocono Int Raceway Super National will be run at the end of pit road with barriers on the inside and tires in the turns,Track size was estimated at 1/5 mile.This race is scheduled to be part of Super National Events # 4 with Action Track USA on August 16,Linda's Speedway August 17th and Pocono August 18th.

We are not in charge of the Sammons Indoor Point Series,the point system and payout is based on the Sammons Motorsports system used.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Slingshot racer John Rooks who passed away over the weekend.John was a spirited competitor at Hamlin and area speedways in his # 28 Slingshot.

Hope to see some ,good clean,hard racing in AC this weekend.

We want to send our condolences to Randy and Denise Smith of S&S and Hamlin Speedways on the passing of the Randy's mother.

It's hard to believe that I have been involved with the Slingshots for 12 years now.They truly have become a steppingstone for many talented drivers and also a form of racing that keeps the older drivers and crew members involved.It is still one of the most family involved auto racing classes today.I want to thank everyone that has been a part of this great form of racing and good luck in your future plans in both the Slingshots and bigger cars.As stated to me by a few former Slingshot owners and drivers that have moved up,there are times they wish they came back.

Gary Mondschein, Rich and I have finally got what we have been trying for many years now and that is to have a race on the Pocono Raceway. This will be held on August 18th under the Classic Racing Times Promotions. Track time will begin around 5PM.

The annual Speedway Entertainment  / Action Track USA Awards Banquet will be held Friday night Feb,2,2018 at Bear Creek Resort at 6PM.Tickets are on sale at $45.00 for 15 and over and $40.00 for 14 and under. Award winners, please no t-shirts and ripped pants. Let's continue with the fantastic look that many of you have shown over the last few years. They will be mailed out unless someone wants to pick them up .The mailing deadline is January 18th now. They can be ordered up until banquet day.

I will be here on Sat. Dec. 9th from 9 AM to 1 PM.There is currently engine work done here for Dalton Maynard,Greg Sleight and Brian Smith.

The 2018 registrations are being approved by Rich and I should be sending out the email on Thursday.Anyone that has registered previously knows that your car number is yours until Jan. 31st,after that it can be used by anyone.Please make sure you list the drivers name on the left side of the form.Sorry,I'm not a mind reader.As a simple reminder,if your driver is running as a Junior in 2018 and starts the season at 14 but has a birthday during the season,they will still be given junior status until the season is over.If you are registering a car or cars that can be used as rentals,please make note of that.From the looks of the Facebook Group Page,there are some members seeking a ride or 2 during the season.

We are going to be looking at possibly adding a race that I have tried to make a go of for 6 years now and there is a good chance with some help of friends that this might happen in 2018.

Skyline Park Raceway in Cortland ,NY is looking to add small cars to their 2018 schedule and has asked if Slingshot teams would be willing to give the track a go.We have added them to our National Series races with a May 20th,2018 date.

I was totally surprised as upon reading a post about the tour that someone stated we are not running a tour next year.We did eliminate the regionals in part due to many teams that promised attending,didn't and we do not want tracks to planning on having 24 cars then only have 10 show up.We do this so race teams and drivers can broaden their horizons by adding different size and designed tracks and give them a chance to run for some added monies in most instances.The National Series in 2018 is basically the national events run in 2017 for the All Star Elite 11 championship.Next year it will be used for 1 of the criteria for accumulating points whether by home track or National Series.Juniors will be following the same tour as the All Stars except for the New Jersey dates due to age restrictions.Lindas Speedway is looking to waive the 12 year old minimum for a Junior race in 2018.

The current indoor entry totals are as follows: Allentown 30   AC 35  Albany 28.I believe the early entry fee deadline is a postmark of today.

As soon as I get the Champions shirt proof,I'll post it.Right now the shirt color is blackberry.SInce I had no mediums and larges left and more than enough XL's I cut back on them and added those shirts to the medium and large counts..They will be $20.00 each with no added costs for the bigger sizes.Due to the UPS price increase the shipping cost for 1 to 8 shirts will be $9.00.

                                              This offer is good through December 9th.

15% off a 10 FT. Box of Chain. Shipping will be extra. I will be here on Saturday from 9 AM til 1 PM if anyone wants to get a head start on Slingshot Christmas shopping.

Limit 2 boxes per racer's order.

Banquet date for both Speedway Entertainment and Action Track will be Friday Feb 2nd at 6 PM at Bear Creek Resort.Tickets are $45 for 15 and older and $40 for 14 and under.

I will be here on Saturday from 9 AM to 1 PM for anyone wanting to pick up parts or drop off engines and front axles and spindles for repair.Chassis work and swing arm repair is also being done.

We currently have a Kit Car and 3 complete car orders that we are taking care of but will have the time to repair your chassis or swing arm.

Engine work is picking up due to the indoor racing season.Make sure you have your engine in repair mode.There is a disassembly discount if it comes to us as a short block with NO tinwork,carb,manifold,flywheel,clutch and engine plate attached.As stated in the rule book,the soda-cap type engine seals are not legal.Red seals were last used in June of 2011 so if you have red seals on your engine,it's time to be looked at.

The Toby book is also here if anyone has a family member or friend looking for a copy at Christmas time.

The 2018 tour plans are being worked on and we are trying to hold our new National World Series races on the same dates in 2018 as they were in 2017.The plans call for all nationals in 2017 to be used as an alternate form of obtaining points for the World Series of Slingshot Championship and Junior Championship.Weekly track points use is the other form.The new point system will be based in obtaining points from 3 different ways:
1. Home track or the National Series
2.2 Super Nationals 1 being in your region and the other outside your region.
3.World Series Events at season's end next year.
More inclusive info will be given later.Speedweeks will also be scheduled again in 2018 with the 2017 car counts the highest in quite some time.

We are not a part of The Gobbler at Accord this season.Brett Deyo has accepted Accord promoter Gary Palmer's suggestion of using his sprint car class for this year.

I will be sending the names for the 2017 Champions shirt to Weikel Sportswear in hopes of having them ready for a Christmas delivery.Brett Bieber has decided that the 151 of Donny Hockman  be used in this years shirt as both Hockman Racing and Four B Family Racing shared the car duties for Brett's 2017 championship.Shelby McLaughlin's # 7 will be also featured as the Junior National champion.

The SE Canadian dealer George Samson was here yesterday and the new tour plans were being discussed with dates slotted in for a 3 race weekend in Canada.

I will be releasing the new format soon.There will be NO regional tours in 2018,but I did keep the annual Speedweeks in tact for 2018.

Congrats to our Elite 11 National Champion, Brett Bieber and his car owners Four B Racing and Hockman Race Team for their accomplishments.For all of you that are not Slingshot FB Group Page members,Brett won the national tour,the MA Silver Tour,the MA Gold Tour,Speedweeks point crown and also placed 3rd in the Empire Region.

The S&S Team swept the All Star Beast of the East weekend at Oakland Valley Speedway with Jared Silfee fast time and the win and Scott Neary 2nd fast time and finishing 2nd.Nick DelCampo put his 05 into the top 3 with both an impressive time trial and 50 lap run..All cars that entered,started the 50 lap main.Thanks to Dave Allen,Hufcut Concrete,Malley Pool Service and Sean Hart for making this the highest paying Slingshot race.

The Great 8 Junior National point champion Shelby McLaughlin had a stellar year in her own right by winning the national championship and also being the Hamlin Speedway Junior Champion.She put an exclamation point on her season by taking home the $1000 Junior Beast of the East win at Oakland Valley.Really was hoping to see more Juniors entered,but it was a very close race with the top 3 all under a blanket at the finish.

The Speedway Entertainment / Action Track USA Awards Banquet will be held Friday Feb 2nd at 6 PM at Bear Creek Resort in Macungie,PA.Adult tickets 15 & over is $45.00,14 & under is $40.00 each.

I have decided to get 2017 Champions shirts made this season.Color of shirt still undecided.If you placed in the top 3 in any region,top 5 in Speedweeks,placed in the Elite 11 or Great 8 or also a track champion in their regular classes your name will be on this shirt.Brett Bieber has decided to put the Hockman 151 on the shirt this year and Shelby McLaughlin's # 7 will also grace the front of the shirt.Shirts will be $20 with no added cost for 2XL or 3XL.

To answer a few of the email questions,full containment seats are not mandatory,that is a driver safety issue for your team.Anyone can drive the PA or NY indoor races,the NJ race is age restrictive to no one under 14.

I have removed quite a few FB Group members,because of their posts.I will continue to monitor this.

If any of you would like a nice Christmas present for your older race fans in the family,the new Toby books are completed and we have received them.They can be mailed out or picked up.Also Gary Silverman has Action Track videos for sale.

Don't forget Daylight Savings Time is quickly approaching,make sure you turn your clocks back.
