There will be a Super National weekend of racing for the World Slingshot Championships at Mississippi Thunder Speedway on Friday June 8th and at Button Buck Speedway @ Deer Creek Speedway on June 9th. These will be events for both classes of Slingshots and points earned will go towards the World Championship for both All Stars and Juniors. Mississippi Thunder is located in Fountain City,WI and Button Buck is at Grand Meadows,MN. Monte Chisholm is our parts dealer for those areas.
The rained out June 3rd Action Track USA All Star makeup will be held June 10th. Track time has been backed to 4:30 instead of 5 PM.From the looks of the day’s schedule,you will get a quick hotlap session prior to the makeup main.
The National Series tour stop heads to Snydersville Speedway on Friday June 8th with both Juniors and All Stars competing for these points which possibly can be used for the World Series,pending your weekly track point finish at season’s end.There is guaranteed $500 to win the All Star main and $350 to take the Junior checkered. As an added bonus this will be grant the winner a guaranteed starting spot in the Pocono Tricky Triangle All Star Slingshot Super National at Pocono Int Speedway on August 18th.Tom Arntz has posted info for this race on the FB Group Page and there is quite a bit offered to you for just entering this race.The track will be assembled on the speedway and will be a 1/5th mile oval.It is asphalt so make sure you have your sawtooth and front slicks ready and mounted.Ribbed RR may be used.We currently have some 18 X 8.50 Duros in stock if that’s your asphalt tire of choice.
Randy and Denise Smith are in the process of making winning an A Main and the racing at Hamlin Speedway a more positive experience.They are planning on doing interviews and working on driver profiles to help race teams get their sponsors out to the public.Great chance for racers to showcase their race teams.
Dave Allen has been alternating some nice win money for the Oakland Valley racers.OVS has moved to Friday nights and they are looking for some new teams to come in and give their regulars something to work for.Oakland Valley Speedway is located in Cuddebackville,NY a little north of Port Jervis,NY.
Accord Speedway is looking in establishing a return to their Small Car Weds.with June 13th set as the opening night.Please contact the speedway for more info.
The new website is now in full working mode and as many of you have already seen,some of the news and stories are now posted by me with help from Jay Dugan. There is a new feature posted in the Slingshot section which showcases the podium finishing drivers at the weekly tracks and tour stops.The 1st 2 posts literally took me almost 5 hours to compile due to checking out all track websites and FB Group pages. If anyone has weekly results from your track please send me the top 3 from all Slingshot classes and those names will be posted for everyone to see. I’m also trying to expand the focus of the Slingshots for the race teams in Florida,Alabama,Minnesota,Wisconsin,North Dakota and all the Canadian tracks.FYI,the Slingshots are now racing in Saskatchewan with Estevan Motor Speedway taking the Slingshots onboard.
Champion Speedway in Owego,NY is also one of the newer tracks to include the Slingshots as a regular class.If in the area give this well manicured speedway a try.
Word from New England is that the former Jolly Roger Motor Park has now added a clay oval for racing and have invited the Slingshots there to give it a try.JRMP was once a gravel based oval and tire wear was not good,but a new clay surface is in working order for anyone looking for some New England racing action.
News from Sammons Indoor Motorsports is that the AC Indoor Classic and Allentown PPL Event Center have established dates for the indoor racers.Len Sammons has been given 2 dates for a possible return to Albany,none of which have been taken yet by Sammons.For anyone with 600 micro racing friends.they are returning to Trenton for a repeats of an incredibly fantastic weekend of indoor dirt racing.
I want to thank everyone for supporting the occasional Saturday shop hours .I know many of you cannot make it during the week or want to avoid the shipping costs.I will post it on FB so everyone has advanced notice.Right now it looks like June 16th will be the next day from 9 AM to 1 PM.These hours can be used for drop offs of engines,spindle or front axle repairs and parts pick up.Also parts needed to be taken to the Action Track must be ordered before 10 AM Weds or 5 PM Thurs for the Sunday races.
Wingless Weds at Shellhammers has become quite popular but there is 1 thing missing,Junior racers.Both classes are given A Mains and we want to see more Juniors on the high banked 1/8th mile.They have been getting done quite early and with schools soon closing for the summer,now is the time to do some midweek racing.
Congrats to Graduating Class of 2018 and students moving to the next grade.Have a great summer and make sure you get your racing fixes at a weekly or tour race.
Thanks for your support.
