Pauch Pockets $2,500 at Georgetown Speedway

 

Story and photos by:
Bruce C. Walls


GEORGETOWN, DE-Any Billy Pauch Racing School students at Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, DE last Friday night Sept. 29th should have  paid close attention to their instructor. Pouch started on Big Block  Modifieds pole from where he led the 20-racer field around the 1/2-mile  dirt oval flawlessly for 30 laps. He built three huge leads that were taken by caution flags. “Cautions are always a worry, but then again I  could have used one at the end to help me with traffic,” laughed the  Frenchtown, N.J. based winner in victory lane. On his third try he  built another huge lead passing all but one of his competitors before  beating Mark Byram to the finish line. Pouch earned $2,500 from the  evening’s sponsor Peninsula Oil & Propane.

“I was just fortunate to start second and the car worked really good  tonight,” Pauch said. “The crew  had it dialed in and that just makes   it easy. The car was good, it could have been a little looser. The track dried up a little more than I thought it would. You guess as best you can and go from there.”

Judd Mills finished third and was trailed in the top five by Donnie Radd and John Keller. Further back top 10 finishers were Chad James,  Scott Van Gorder, Howard O’Neil and Dan Hollowell.

Snookie’s Speed Shop team driver Eric Vent earned his first Georgetown Speedway win. The Milton, DE based racer lead a field of 22 across  Crate Modified’s stripe with Milford, DE driver, Joseph (Jo Jo) Watson  challenging him as they batted across the stripe. The photo finish was  one of several that night.

“I was fortunate to start up front,” described Vent who pocketed $500  for his win. “To hold these boys off was pretty impressive, I think.  This is our eighth week in the car and our third time here at  Georgetown Speedway so I can’t ask for better. The car was pretty  good. It was a little loose, but I hit my marks and it was doing its  job.”

It took the field three attempts to get the first lap in. The caution  flag would wave 11 times in all. But at the end fans were on their  feet screaming for their favorite driver when they exited turn three  side-by- ide with the checkered flag waving ahead of them. When they  got to the stripe Vent was just a nose  ahead of Watson. When the dust  settled from the dicing for positions behind them Herman Powell, Jordan Watson and Tom Curtis. Further back in the top ten were Chris Hitchins, Brandon Perdue, Ted Reynolds, Casey Lynch and Billy Carr.

Mike Wharton was another first time winner at Georgetown Speedway.  Wharton, of Bridgeville, DE, led 23-Crate Late Model drivers across the  stripe in another photo finish. After securing the lead in the final  laps, Wharton won an exciting. three lap shoot-out after the 11th  restart. 

“It was all on starts. I got him on a restart,” Wharton described. “I don’t think he appreciated me too much because he banged me a little bit and spun out. He tried just a little too hard, but it’s all  racing. It didn’t start out too good. I got stuck on the bottom and  had to pass a few cars and work my way up. It took patience to wait  for the right time to pass. The cautions helped me out a lot tonight.  They helped me get past a lot of them and I passed him (Mike Wilson) on a restart for the win. That’s how I did it.”

Two classic car classes also competed with thrilling action and  surprise close finishes. Vintage cars were the first feature class to  compete. Piloting a 37 Ford CJ Schirmer grabbed the lead on the final  lap for a finish that went down to the wire.

“I found a groove on the outside that let me pass him off turn four.  That made me work better. The car was hooked up the best its been in  the four times we’ve been here. The track was heavier and that helped us out. It’s a little cooler tonight and that gives us more horsepower  and that’s a good thing.”

Bill Brittingham bested a field of 17-Little Lincoln cars. Brittingham  battled back and forth with Ron Wilson and Jamie Wagner before the exciting last lap. The heated battle for the lead often led to exciting  two and three wide exchanges. When he lead the fourth and final  restart a three-wide battle raged behind him for second. Wagner won that position and was followed by Ron Wilson, Pat McNeil and Donald Robinson, Jr.

“Cautions always worry you,” said Brittingham of Felton, DE who piloted  a 1957 Chevy. “I couldn’t believe those guys kept making it stick off that second turn and kept getting up underneath us. I couldn’t believe they were getting off that good. I didn’t count on anything until I saw  that checkered flag and I was there first. Last week I lost by 1/2 a  car so I didn’t count anything until I was under that flag stand. The car was great. It had to be. These guys worked so hard on it last   week. All I had to do was hang on and hope I didn’t mess it up for  them. They work hard for me.”

Race fans should note that this weekend’s races will be held Saturday  October 7th. Competing that afternoon and evening will be Super Late Models, Crate Modified, Crate Late Model and Little Lincoln Cars.

The following weekend Georgetown Speedway will be hosting a two-day  event starting Saturday Oct 14th. That day Big Block Modifieds lead the show with a 40-lap feature who’s winner pockets $4,000. Crate Late  Models will battle for 20-laps and Little Lincoln cars with go for  15-laps. Five hundred dollars will go to those winners.

Sunday Super Late Models will battle for a winner take all $4,000 purse  after 40-laps. Small Block Modifieds will compete for a $3,000 purse and a free tire while Crate Modifieds will battle 30-laps for $500.

“Run What You Brung”

Bruce C. Walls

View Photos Here

GEORGETOWN, DE-Friday (9/8/06) night’s feature races at Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, DE were highlighted by a “Run What You Brung”   race sponsored by I.G. Burton. Combined Super Late Models and  Modifieds brought a variety of mostly winged cars. The wing aero package planted  cars to the track, especially in the corners. Lap times were consistently in the 15-second bracket on the  1/2-mile dirt oval.  Five seconds faster than the 20-second bracket they run without wings.

Ocean Pines pilot Richard Jarvis, Jr earned the pole. He led the   17-racer field into turn four steadily picking up speed as they headed for the green flag waving ahead of him. Jarvis reached turn one first,
dove low exiting turn two with a comfortable lead. Scott Haus hung on  to Jarvis’ back bumper. Behind them Seaford, DE standout Ricky Elliott was working his way to the lead pack.

Caution flags would return two more times before mid-race. Jarvis led  the restarts. In the final laps Elliott reached second. Haus quickly recaptured second and followed Jarvis, Jr across the stripe. “You find  your self coming up on slower cars so fast,” said Haus, of  Pennsylvania, who finished second. “This track is a little dark and I’m not use to it. We had good tires and it’s fun to ride these things like this,” he added referring to the permitted additional wings and other rule modifications. “The car was pretty good, better then in the heats.  We worked on it a little bit and got it better and it was a good second place car.”

According to Elliott, “It’s hard to pass because the cars are so fast,” Elliott described. “I could close in on him (Jarvis) but then I’d loose him again. He (Jarvis) did a good job.”

“The car was excellent tonight. It handled real good and I want to  thank my crew for that,” said Ocean Pines, MD based winner who pocketed $3,000 for his win. “They worked hard getting the wings built and getting the car to stick like it did tonight.” Race sponsor I.G. Burton  Auto of Milford, DE donated purses.

The difference in speed between these cars with wings is unbelievable.  We usually turn lap times in the 20-second range and tonight we were in the low 15-seconds bracket. That’s incredible! It’s a total  different feeling, the car works on you. You have to be fit to drive one of these.”

Don Hallowell and Jamie Mills completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Donnie Radd, Dale Hawkins, Steve Barnes, Darren Rust and  David Pettyjohn.

Morris Tucker was the lucky winner of the new Crate Motor donated by I.G. Burton. During the season each crate team received credit for  each night's run at Georgetown Speedway with a ticket being added to the pot. On Friday evening the I.G. Burton sponsors drew one lucky  name from sixty plus teams who  have participated in either Crate Modified or Crate Late Model racing at Georgetown. Tucker has  participated in every racing event at Georgetown this season. He has  become known to the track employees as the usually the first tow vehicle in line at the pit gate on Friday afternoon and usually the  first car on track for hot laps. The very surprised Tucker said after  the drawing he was just so pleased Georgetown Speedway had reopened.  He thanked track management for all their efforts this season and finally he thanked I.G. Burton for donating the crate motor.

Twenty-four Crate Modified cars lined up behind Tim Trimble to start  Crate Modified. It took three tries to get them started, but once they did there was no stopping Milford, DE native Joseph (JoJo) Watson from getting to the front. After the third restart Watson broke into the  early lead. Watson continued building up steam and gaining distance between he and his brother Jordan Watson piloting a similarly prepared machine.

Ryan Walls finished third. “We had a lot of cautions early, but none  when I needed them” described Walls, of Laurel, DE. Then we had a lot of green flag laps at the end. I don’t know if I would have had  anything for him or not. We worked our way from 23rd. I wish we had another caution to see if we had something for them or not. Unfortunately breaks didn’t come to us tonight.”

“It took a little while to get up to the front,” described Watson, who  collected $500 for the win. “It was hard to handle that last lap. I was worried I’d get into somebody or something. They were so thick out
there I just weaved my way through them to the front. The car handled  perfect. Once I got out front I couldn’t tell if they were close behind me or not. I think we did a pretty good job tonight.”

Chris Hitchens and John Curtis completed the top five. The next five to  cross the stripe were Mike Hough, Chad Clark, Tom Curtis, Justin Griffith and John Wynn.

Later that night Elliott added another first to his record book. It was  both his first ride in a Crate Late Model and his first Crate Late Model win. Bobby Watkins earned the pole looking for his fifth straight
win. Watkins roared away from the pole when they got the green flag. Several laps later caution waves. Watkins left the track. Headed for  his pit. Several more laps later he emerged from the grid.

Meanwhile Elliott showed them around again this time with Ross Robinson  right behind him. Caution waved again after two more laps were booked. Robinson and Dale Bounds were the restarts top three. The green flag waved. Elliott got back to business and finished the job with Robinson  and Bounds still behind him.

“He’s one of the best in the business,” Robinson said of Elliott. “I  gave it all I had, but it just wasn’t enough. Running second to Ricky Elliott is good in my book. He came run with the best of them and
that’s good for me. I’m proud of it.”

“It was pretty fun my first time in a crate car. I like racing. I’d  race a kart here if they had them too,”Elliott, who pocketed $500, described. “It was good race. The car was excellent. We made a little
adjustment after the heat race. Ross ran around me there a little in the heat race and we knew we had to adjust it a little to get it a  little more momentum. So that’s what we did. We didn’t get it quite where we needed it, but it was good enough.”

Big Block Modifieds will be featured in this Friday's show 9/15 at Georgetown Speedway. Crate Modifieds and Crate Late Models also compete  that night. Fans should mark Sept 22nd on their calendar. In  celebration of Dover Downs weekend Georgetown Speedway will be running  the 1st Annual Melvin Joseph Memorial Race. The headliner of that show  will be a 49 lap Super Late Model feature show paying $4900 to win.  The late Melvin Joseph built Georgetown Speedway in the late 1940's and  went on the be very involved in the construction and operation of Dover  Downs. Mr. Joseph  owned race cars #49. Gates open at 5 p.m. Warm up  start at 7 p.m. For more information call the Speedway office at (320) 856-7415 or visit the track website at www.georgetownspeedway.com.

A Night of Excitement at Georgetown Speedway



Story and photos by:
Bruce C. Walls


GEORGETOWN, DE-Last Friday (8/25/06) Georgetown Speedway offered a full plate of excitement. Little Lincoln cars joined the show that included   pre feature mod bog drag racing down the front straightaway. Matt  Tipton earned the Little Lincoln Cars pole. Fourteen competitors behind  him. He rounded turn 4 of the 1/2-mile clay oval with the green flag  waving ahead of him.


After barreling down the front straight Tipton dove low into turn one  securing his grip on the lead. Four laps later yellow flags waved from  the flag stand to every corner. The restart cut Tipton’s lead. When
racing resumed, Ron Wilson looked high and low for an opening. Wilson  saw an opportunity next time around and slipped by Tipton for the lead. One lap later the second of three caution flags flew. Wilson’s ’56  Chevy led the restart as he would again next time around. With six  laps recorded and 14 to go Wilson pulled along side him threatening to  speed by him. Wilson tapped his throttle pulling out of the challenge.

Behind them Bill Brittingham threaded his way to third before blasting  into the lead. Suddenly smoke billowed out from beneath Brittingham’s  machine. Apparently a blown valve cover gasket. Smoke was  billowing  out from under Brittingham’s machine as he pulled along side of Wilson.   In a heavy cloud of smoke Brittingham blasted back into the lead.  Next time around Wilson pulled along side of Brittingham. They battled  side-by-side down the front straight before Wilson rocketed by him  retaking the lead.

Donald Robinson came with Wilson dropping Brittingham to third. The  white flag was almost invisible when it waved. Wilson whipped around  one more time and took the checkered flag.

“The #4 car (Brittingham) was blowing a little oil,” said Wilson, of  Lincoln, DE, “Before he popped that valve cover gasket it looked like  we were going to have an exciting finish. We were having a good time.  Everyone was racing clean and having fun. My car worked pretty good  tonight. It still has some  things that need to be worked on, but we got the job done. The key here is to find a good line and be patient.”

Pat McNeil and Melvin Joseph, Jr completed the top five. Sixth through  10th were taken by Tim Chambers, Tipton, Tony Daisey, Kenny Fox and  Jamie Wagner.  “I drew a 10th again and then got hung up in the heat and have to start  10th,” shrugged Seaford, DE Super Late Model hot shoe Ricky (The Rocket) Elliott, who added, “I need two cautions to get into the lead.”  He would get five.

Dale Lingo earned Super Late Model’s pole. “I’ve got to make sure I  don’t mess up. Keep her to the outside and don’t mess up,” Lingo explained before the race. “The car was good in the heat race. It was  a little tight going in. We made some adjustments and hopefully that’s  enough.” He led the 21-racer field around six complete laps before  surrendering it to Elliott who showed them home from there. After  threading his way through the field Elliott opened a _-track lead over  Anthony Rushing who took second away from Richard Jarvis Jr. in the  final laps. Five laps were complete before the first caution flag  waved. Nine were complete on the third and fourth cautions. The fifth  waved with two laps left. Elliott held the lead during the two-lap  shootout taking the win ahead of Rushing.

“We started 10th. Usually the track’s going to slick up. So you’ve got to hold the bottom when you start that far back. It looked like it  was going to be one of those nights,” explained Elliot who pocketed  $2500 for his effort from race sponsor Grotto Pizza. “We got a good  car to get out front with. Jarvis got it one week without any  cautions. The track’s so fast you’ve got to bunch them up a bit so you  can build off each other. The cautions worked our way tonight. We had  a great car and I can’t say enough about my people that work on this car,” said Elliott who earned $2,500 from race sponsor Grottos’s Pizza  for his fourth Georgetown win of the season, third in a row. It was  also his 13th win this season.

Richard Jarvis crossed third, Scott Cross fourth and Kenny Pettyjohn  fifth. Ray Davis came in sixth. Following in the top ten were Rob Schirmer, Jerry Foster, Mark Elkins and Bob Geiger.

Grant Ireland grabbed the Crate Modified pole and hustled into the  early lead. Two laps later a lead swapping battle unfolded. After five  heated laps the first of many yellow flags waved for the 23-racer  field. When the green returned Joe (Jo Jo) Watson took advantage of a  mistake and took the lead. Caution would wave three more times before  the next lap was complete. Watson was still leading when the dust settled.

The final caution flag waved with four laps left to settle it. Watson  led from the pole. Four laps of exciting race action followed. Two of  the best in the business pulled out all the stops for $500 waiting  the  victor at the stripe. And bragging rights. Watson earned the money and  bragging rights after  holding off late race charges from Ireland.

“There were a lot of cautions out there tonight. I was just worried about making weight. I went up to a new speed shop this week and they  got the car running pretty good so far. The car worked good out  there, but we had so many cautions out there we never really got a long run  in. I was out front so long with the cautions I didn’t know how this  was going to end.”

Jordan Watson was third, John Curtis fourth and Richard Walls fifth. Chris Hitchens Billy Carr, Jerry Carter Jeff Brown and Mike White rounded out the top 10.

Bobby Watkins, of Harrington, DE, also kept a Georgetown streak going.  Watkins earned his third straight Crate Late Model race and pocketed   $500 from Grotto Pizza for his win. It also improved his over all  season record to five wins this season at Georgetown. Watkins started  on the pole and never looked back through two restarts. Second place  finisher Dale Bounds had his #17 machine in striking distance several  times during restarts in the 25-lap feature. But Bounds couldn’t pull off the pass.

“Like I’ve said before, it’s easier when you start on the pole. I keep pulling that #1 pill and it’s harder on me because then it’s my race to  lose then,” Watkins laughed. “The motor’s been running flawless, but  the last couple laps it’ got a miss in it and that kind of bothers me.

I didn’t worry about Dale Bounds back there on those restarts. I just  drove my own race. It was my race to win and Dale’s to get. He’s  always a good competitor. I didn’t have to worry about him running  into me and taking me out. You can drive side-by-side clean with Dale  and not worry. I don’t mind having Dale behind me.”

Georgetown racer Ross Robinson ran third, Hall Browning fourth, and  Travis Justice finished fifth.  Anthony Rushing crossed sixth. Behind   him in the top 10 of 18 entries were David Nailor, Erik McKinney, John Hudson and Bobby Williamson.


Looking ahead on Georgetown Speedway’s calendar, this Friday  September1st the United Racing Company (URC) Sprint Cars national  winged sprint car tour is stopping by to battle with local drivers and   many top challengers from surrounding states. The combined Crate Late  and Crate Modified classes and Vintage Car Racing will join them.

The following Friday (Sept. 8th) is another must see show. Sandwiched between the Late Model/Modified and Crate Late Models and Modifieds is  guaranteed crowd pleaser “Run What You  Brung” race pitting the two classes together with wings, and wild extensions.

Gates open Friday’s at 5 p.m. Heats start at 7 p.m. features follow.

Trio Triples at Georgetown Speedway



Story and photos by
Bruce C. Walls


GEORGETOWN-Three of Georgetown’s regular racers earned their third trip to Victory Lane last Friday night (Aug. 11). After Rickey Elliott’s climb from a fifth place start to winning Super Late Models, Ryan Walls and Bobby Watkins won their third win in Crate Medium and Crate Modified.

But before that, four racers competed in a 3 lap Cash Dash. Racers were selected by the number of wins they had in the crate classes. Starting in row one were Jo Jo Watson and Ryan Walls. When the green flag waved Watson’s #39 machine blasted down the front straight, dove low into turn one and roared down the back straight. By the time he was breaking for turn three he had a sizeable lead over the field. From there he was never challenged on his way to the stripe where a check for $200 was waiting for him.

“It was a little tough out there,” said the 16-year-old Milford, DE based winner. “I had to get a good start. My uncle had the car setup good. From the start it was smooth sailing.”

Super Late Models started with a full caution crash in turn on. Pole winner Rick Hulson hammered it down diving low into turn one. He approached turn two in the high groove, cut in a little to the middle groove and scrambled down the back straightaway. Just as his prepared to break for turn three, a full course caution waved for the field before the first lap was booked. When racing resumed Elliott hit the throttle. He quickly passed his way to the front.

Two cautions later the field had to be lined up again for caution. They finally got started. Elliott’s car finally came in. “The caution helped me on the first lap when everybody else spun out. We shot through that wreck and without any damage. The car was really good. We don’t work on this car usually, this is our short track car it’s a good car, “ But seven laps later the field was slowed again thinking it would never escape the claws of the caution monster. With 19 of 25 scheduled laps compete; Elliott headed them back to the green flag. The green flag continued waving until it was time for the checkered flag Elliott had a small cushion. But behind him veteran Kenny Pettyjohn was looking for the front, Trailing Kenny Pettyjohn were two more relations, Mark, David in third and fourth. Gary Simpson grabbed fifth and was followed in to the top 10 by Hulson, Rob Schrimer, Scott Cross, Ray Davis, J. and Rick Todorow.
Crossing in 11th through 24th were: Mark Williams, Bob Geiger, Charlie Wolford, Vic Tomas, and Jamie Eichoz. Jerry, Foster, Mark Elkins, Rob Ormsbee, Ted Taylor, Kerry King Bryan Whaley, Mike Williams and Richard Jarvis Jr.

“I didn’t worry about the cautions after we got lined up single file I figured the bottom groove was the fastest groove,” Elliott added.

The night’s excitement continued with Walls capturing this third Crate Modified class. Walls earned the pole. Walls captured the early going fighting off a hard charging Joe Watson who would be there at the photo finish.

“I started getting really loose. I saw him (Watkins) get behind me and give me a shove. I went sideways and then came back and got it. I got back in it, but I was really loose. I saw him get behind me and give me a shove and got me sideways. I got back into it. He dove low and I went high and went around him. That was a heck of a race. He had a good show and he drove me clean,” described Walls of Laurel, DD.

Suddenly the first of three caution flags waved for the 22-racer field. Walls led them to the next caution, which waved at mid-race. Watson hung with him on the restart as they battled into the first turn. Watson dove low going into turn one emerging as the leader. There were now five laps left for the distance. Walls recaptured the lead in turns two and three as they headed for the white flag. He held off Watson’s final challenges narrowly beating him to the finish line.

“This is my third win here this year. I took a break for a couple of weeks. Last week we had some problems and now we’ve coming back in great form,” Walls added.

John Curtis, Brad Trice and Mike White made up the rest of the top five. Following for the rest of the field were Chris Hitchens, Justin Griffith, Mike Hough, Richard White, Tim Trimble, John Wynn, Morris Tucker, Andy Hammond, Donnie Dutton, Jr, Casey Lynch, Brad Bradbury, Jordan Watson, Billy Carr, Herman Powell, Dan Reidy, Ted Reynolds and Mark Byram.

Watkins won the night’s final main with perfection. Starting on the pole Farmington, DE native Bobby Watkins roared in to the Crate Late Model’s early lead continuing flawlessly to the finish. Along the way he was forced to slow down for two caution restarts. First after five laps and again at the 1/2 way signal. Behind him battles for positions went two and sometimes three wide behind him. “I didn’t know what was going on back there. I thought I heard one of them come up behind me,” Watkins described adding, “That’s what makes it exciting for the fans to watch. I was just paying attention to my driving and concentrating.”

Watkins flew away from the field in the final laps extending his lead with every lap.
“The car ran good; it planted to the ground it just worked beautiful,” Watkins described. “The motor was awesome. I can’t say enough about Sand Rock Glass they put it in the car and it’s been awesome.”

This coming Friday night August 18 Big Block Modifieds highlight the show along with the Crate Modifieds and Crate Late Models. For more information visit the track website at www.georgetownspeedway.com.

Tickets From History


Story and photos by
Bruce C. Walls

GEORGETOWN, DE-(7/30/06)-Stella Hickman is a life long Sussex Countian. Born  and raised in Georgetown, she has lived in Millsboro, DE for the past 27-years. Stella has had many interests during her life, but stock car  racing wasn’t one of them. She says she’s only been to Georgetown  Speedway several times in her life. She knows the drivers, their crews  and family members. Until recently she’s never had a connection to the  _-mile dirt oval on US 113 just south of Georgetown, DE.

During her move from Georgetown to Millsboro she stumbled across a twin  roll of tickets she thought were old Safeway tickets. Thinking they  would come in handy some day she saved them. Back in early July  members or her Georgetown class of 1956 were  preparing to celebrate their 50th reunion. Since they were holding a 50/50 drawing that night  she remembered the roll of what she thought were Safeway tickets.

“I brought them with me thinking they were old Safeway tickets,” she  recalled. “We were having a 50/50 drawing. We were at RJ’s Riverside  in Laurel, DE when (classmate) Terry Timmons noted they were old  Georgetown Speedway tickets.

People have offered suggestions about the ticket date. According to  Hickman, “Melvin Joseph, Jr (who’s father built Georgetown Speedway)  said he though they were from the early 1970’s. Others have said  they’re from the 1950’s.”

Whatever their date, the tickets have created quite a stir among  collectors of Georgetown history. “Eric Porter wanted some for his  museum,” Hickman said. “I’m a member of the Nutter/Marvel Historical  Society. I’m going to give them some for their Georgetown room and I’m  giving the Georgetown Historical Society some strips.”

Until more information can be found about the tickets it will be hard  to place a value on them. For now, thanks to Hickman, they will be on  display at several Georgetown historical museums.

Jarvis Pockets $3,310 at Georgetown Speedway Watkins Story Continues With Another First Time Win



Story and photos by
Bruce C. Walls

GEORGETOWN, DE-Super Late Model pilot Richard Jarvis, based out of Ocean Pines, MD, was a lucky man at Georgetown Speedway last Friday night (July 14). The 27-year-old racer earned $2,500 for his first ever Georgetown Speedway win. Then, while being interviewed by the media in Victory Lane, he paused to check his 50/50 ticket. When the last number was read off he began jumping and shouting, “I won the 50/50! That’s awesome, it’s just awesome.” He pocketed an additional $810 for an evening total of $3,310.

Super Late Models started the PODS Portable On Demand Portable Storage sponsored event. Mark Williams earned the feature’s pole and hustled into the early lead. Jarvis followed closely waiting for his tires to heat up and the car to hook up. Feeling comfortable with his car as they approached the halfway mark, Jarvis dared the pass roaring by the leader for a never surrendered lead to the finish. Anthony Rushing came with him followed by Scott Cross. Behind Cross two time winner Ricky Elliott settled for fourth followed by Kenny Pettyjohn who rounded out the top five of 16.

“This is incredible. The car was awesome tonight. Everything was awesome,” he beamed in Victory Lane. “The car was real good it worked on the bottom. When I made the pass is was pretty smooth.”

After being beaten by his brother in last week’s Crate Modified Division Jordan Watson vowed that there was always next week. At the end of 25-laps he not only made good on his threat, but also pocketed $500 for his win.

Richard Walls earned the pole. When the initial green flag flew Walls hustled into the early lead. Before he could get them back across the stripe for the first of 25-laps, the first of five caution flags waved. Caution returned on the next attempt to get them going.
This time four tail pack cars collided in turn one. When racing resumed Mark Byram got the jump on Walls. After leading them around several laps caution returned. Byram led the restart. Behind him Walls eagerly waited to get the jump on him. Instead Byram continued leading.

Byram showed the 18-racer field around several more times and then suddenly his front tire went flat forcing him to leave the track. Walls inherited the lead with the Watson boys behind him. Caution waved again closing the gap Byram held over Jordan Watson. This time it was Watson taking advantage. Watson jumped into the lead with his brother Joseph a distant second. That distance evaporated with the fourth caution. When the green flag returned Joseph tried to take it from his brother. In turn three they were side-by-side. Joseph almost took it.

Only a few laps remained to be raced. Suddenly, just when it looked like Jordan had escaped his brother’s challenges, caution waved for the final time with two laps remaining to be raced. The Watson brothers led the two-lap shootout.

“I was really worried about my brother on the restart,” Jordan said. “He (Joseph) pulled up under me and I wasn’t sure I had enough to hold him off. I knew the cushion was better then the bottom because the bottom slicked off. I was hoping to get a good bite and pull it off and that’s what happened. The car felt great. Last week it was real loose. This week it hooked up.” According to Joseph, “There’s always next week.”

Richard White was third across the stripe. Trailing in the top five were Walls and Chris Hitchens.

Crate Late Models were the third division racing that night. Travis Justice and Joe Warren shared row one. After four caution restarts with only one lap was recorded, Justice finally got them started and showed them around twice before caution returned. Three laps were complete.

At the halfway mark Milford racing legend Bobby Watkins took the lead with another Delmarva racing legend Sparky White on his back bumper. Several laps later White worked his way by Watkins in time to take the white flag. Holding it for one more trip White fought off challenge after challenge down to the stripe.

According to White, “Bobby got up in turn three and four coming up on a lapped car. I knew we had to run on the bottom because nobody was up top. About five laps to go I found a perfect line on the bottom. I had plenty of bite and Bobby went up top and that was my only shot. He slid up top and I under him and got a good run off turn four got under him in turn 2 and it was just a drag race down the back straightaway.”

This Friday fans at Georgetown Speedway will get to see and hear Big Block Modifieds competitors will highlight the action, which includes the regular crate classes. For more information call the track hotline at 302.856.7415.

Watson Wins His First at Georgetown


Story and photos by:
Bruce C. Walls


GEORGETOWN, DE-From the pole, sixteen-year-old, Milford, DE native, Joseph Watson won his first ever Crate Modified race at Georgetown Speedway last Friday night (7/7/06). Watson fought off two-time winner Ryan Walls, of Laurel, DE, down to an exciting narrow finish. Mark Byram earned the pole and showed the 18-racer field early on. Several laps into it Watson worked by Byram as they exited turn two heading down the back straight.

By mid-race Watson owned a half-track lead over the field. Behind him Walls worked his way through the field to a distant second. Suddenly a late race caution flag erased Watson’s lead putting Walls on his rear bumper for the restart. When racing resumed Walls tried to take it in turn three. “I washed up a little too high in turn three and it was his from there,” Walls described adding, “He’s a tough competitor.” Watson exited turn four and took the white flag with a small advantage. Walls and Jordan Watson scrapped over second. Joseph Watson rounded the ½-mile clay oval one more time and took the checkered flag with Walls trailing.

“I felt the pressure one time going into turn three,” Watson described. “He got into the back of me and I just maintained my line and drove smooth to get quick lap times. The car was perfect. My uncle set it up tonight. I want to thank him and everybody else that helped me.”

Keith Hoffman was another first time Georgetown winner. Hoffman, of White Hall, PA, got an early race run on Big Block Modified pole winner Jamie Mills and led the 20-racer field through five caution restarts before winning a two-lap shootout with Ryan Godwin who was on his back bumper most of the race.

“Actually the cautions helped out a little bit,” Hoffman described. “ We were running hot. The temperature was starting to get to us. When the yellow came out it brought the temperature down a little bit. The heat was starting to worry me on the long runs so those cautions helped cool the motor down. The car was awesome. It was easy to drive and the track had a lot of bite. There really wasn’t much for me to do but just stand on the throttle. It’s our first Delaware win and that’s awesome. It’s also our first win of the season. We’ve been struggling. To get a win here at Georgetown is a pretty awesome deal.”

Harrington, DE driver Bobby Watkins made it two for four in the Crate Late Model division where he’s the current points leader. Travis Justice started on the pole. Watkins took the lead from Justice early on and showed the 15-racer field through a mid-race caution before beating Mike Wharton to the stripe.

“The second win’s better than the first. We earned this one,” Watkins said. “Ross (Robinson) had problems last week, but we earned this one and we deserve it.”

Racing at Georgetown Speedway resumes Friday night. Gates open at 5 p.m. Warm-ups are at 7 p.m. with heats and features to follow. For more information visit the track’s official website www.georgetownspeedway.com  or call the track hotline at 302.856.7415.

Ricky & Ryan Rule Again at Georgetown Speedway



Story and photos by

Bruce C. Walls


GEORGETOWN, DE-After another rainout racers and fans at Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown returned Friday night June 30th for a full night of action. Four divisions raced under a bright orange moon.  Ricky Elliott, of Seaford and Ryan Walls of Laurel returned to victory lane. Two weeks ago Elliott and Walls ruled Super Late Model and Crate Modified. Friday they did it again.

Jerry Foster’s #5 machine earned Super Late Model’s pole. When the green flag flew so did Foster. Just after Foster cross the start/finish line for the first time the caution flag came out for the first of five times in 20-laps around the 1/2 mile clay oval. Caution returned two laps later and. Foster bobbled surrendered the lead gaining it back next time around.

Battling down the back straight Richard Javis, Jr ‘s # 47 stormed by Foster at the end as they entered turn three. Behind the battle for the lead Elliott patiently threaded his way to second. After securing second Elliott began challenging the leader. Caution number five closed the gap between Elliott and Jarvis. Elliott used it to his advantage hitting the throttle when racing resumed. Five laps remained. Once in clean air Elliott continued breaking away from Jarvis who crossed a distant second.

“I was just trying to make him (Jarvis) to speed up a little bit to get him to slide up so we could come under him,” Elliott said of his charge to the lead. “It was a little slick up there in turn three.  I’d hit that stuff and washed up. He just went a little too high and I moved in.”

D.J. Troutman’s #7J machine was third across the stripe. Following in the top five of 21 were Scott Haus and Foster.

Grant Ireland grabbed Crate Modified’s pole. Ireland burst into the early lead. In the next three laps Walls fought his way to the front and the first of six caution flags waved for the 22-racer field.  Walls lead the restart as he would three of six times while shaking off Joseph Watson’s challenges at every turn. The final caution flag waved with three laps remained to be raced. Walls brought them back to the waving green flag in front of them. Out of turn four Walls stormed down the front straight. As he rounded turn two the field’s tail was still exiting turn four. Walls barreled down the back straight and by the grandstands for a second time. Behind him raging battles for position were heating up. Suddenly the first of six caution flags waved.

Just after Walls passed under the mid race signal the third checkered flag flew. It flew again before another lap was completed. The final caution flag flew with Walls still in charge and three laps to be raced. Walls quickly shot into a comfortable lead. Joseph Watson rode a distant second. Mike White crossed third followed in the top five by opening night winner Brad Trice and Mark Byram.

“The car handled great the first 10 laps,” Walls said adding, “The last 10 laps I was trying with my foot to make sure we weren’t spinning with the right rear tire pressure going up. Overall the car felt good. It was coming off the corners great. Cautions are always a big stumble because you don’t know who’s coming, but they (cautions) can also helped out a few times we had a lot of  lapped cars in front of us and that can hurt you as bad as the cautions.”

Each week’s show includes rotating a highlight division. Last week a full field of ‘Little Lincoln’ cars were first off the grid. Tony Daisy earned the pole. Daisy entered turn one low. He exited turn two onto the long back straightaway with a small, but comfortable, lead over the 15-car field. He showed them around again and just as the second lap was booked a competitor behind him crashed into the front wall exiting turn four too fast.

Daisy led the restart. Using the same tactic, he put his #7 machine back into a comfortable led. He had little time for relaxing. Melvin Joseph, Jr’s #30 was poised to take the lead from him down the back straight. Melvin’s lead was short lived as Brittingham  quicklyrecaptured it next time around.

Brittingham opened a huge lead over the field. But with only three laps left the caution flag returned for a final time erased what he’d built. He took the final green flag with Ron Wilson and Pat McNeil ready for final challenges and a chance at taking the lead from Brittingham. Wilson dug in low on the restart and began battling side-by-side with Brittingham on the final lap. He almost made it as they reached turn three. Brittingham blocked the attempt. As they exited turn four Wilson pulled beside him for a drag race down the  front straight for the checkered flag waving ahead of them.  Brittingham held on by a car length when they reached the  stripe. McNeil, Joseph and Daisy finished third through fifth.

“This is a great track to race on,” Brittingham said adding, “It’s an honor to win here. The car handled good thanks to Steve Ellingsworth, Tommy Walker and Dale Vales. They put in under me and all I have to do is drive it. This track is all history and it  means a lot to be the first Little Lincoln winner here at the new Georgetown Speedway.”

Crate Late Models are on the regular schedule. They were the final class leaving the grid.

Defending winner Ross Robinson, of Georgetown was on the pole looking for a second straight win. After showing the field through three caution restarts.

After Robinson showed the field around for five dicey laps Bobby Watkins, of Harrington, DE, assumed the lead when Robinson’s machine developed mechanical problems just before the 1/2 way signal. Caution returned that lap. With almost half the starting field gone Brittingham led the field for its sixth and final start. Behind him Mike Wharton fought his way to a second place finish. Mike Wilson made third, Chris Jarvis finished fourth and Jason Dean completed the top five of 16.

“It’s sad what happened to Ross (Robinson). It’s all part of racing. It’s unfortunate for him and fortunate for us. You’ve got to take them anyway you get them and I’ll take this one,” Watkins pronounced. “The car would go anywhere, the middle or the bottom it worked. I was just trying to stay out of that top groove it bit me a couple of times.  The middle and the bottom grooves were good I could go anywhere in those grooves. The car just worked awesome tonight, it’s awesome to win here. I won my first race ever here and it’s just awesome. It brings back good memories.”

More memories will be made this Friday when Big Block Modifieds return for another show with the regulars. Gates open at 5 p.m., warm up laps start at 7 p.m. heats and features follow.

Georgetown Speedway Resurrected, Opens This Friday, May 26, 2006

May 22, 2006
By Bonnie Nibblett

There has been a rumor circulating around for the last few years Georgetown Speedway, Georgetown, DE may reopen. Well it is official it will reopen May 26, 2006. No one knew to believe it or not. Just as the rumor that Delmar may be closing next year. The rumor on Delmar has not been true, at least for a while we all hope. But the Georgetown rumor is all true. Promoter Lou Johnson has worked and hung in through it all too, and finally gets the okay to re-open that awesome fastest clay oval.

The yearning to still have, two nights of hot racing action with Late Models and Modifieds has never left any of us NEED FOR SPEED addicts from the past I’m willing to bet. For years Friday night, Georgetown ran and Saturday night Delaware International Speedway would run. Georgetown Speedway has not been open since September 1997. But years ago, it was one of the hottest local dirt tracks around. I along with many others grew up at Georgetown and Delmar tracks, we turned out pretty good. Racing is a good family entertainment for all.

With all the work Lou had to go to get this track open and to have it be supported by everyone in the community has been a tough, tough job, getting it all worked out. But it is possible to want something so bad, and when it does happen you reach a new spark in your life and tackle it. With more and more short tracks closing around us, saving a track and making it the great track it was years ago will be a challenge somewhat, but very, very possible if we all support it.

The track will alternate with the Super Late Models and Big Block Modifieds each week and regular show with TSS Modified and Late Model crate class each week. Little Lincoln’s Vintage Club will visit the track for a “Blast From The Past” feature now and then, once appearance is June 23.

The track will open this Friday, May 26, 2006. Purse pay out $2500 to Big Block Modified Winner, $200 to take the green. TSS Modified & Late Class $500 to win, $100 to take the green. Gates open at 5 PM, Drivers meeting at 6:30 PM, Warm-ups at 7:00 PM, First Heat at 7:30 PM, General Admission will be $10.00 and Pit Admission: $25.00. The complete schedule is on the tracks web and redbud69racing.com and forum. No points will be kept for this year. Track phone/fax is 302-856-7415.

Rules for all divisions will follow that of Delaware International Speedway with the following exception: American Racer 44 or harder or Hoosier 1300 or harder on the right rear. No cheater tires. You can run any tire that you want on the other three corners. If you run the same brand tire on all four corners (American Racer or Hoosier), the winner will get a certificate for a free tire of that brand.

No one under the age of 14 will be allowed in the pits. Anyone under 16 that doesn't have a driver’s license or I.D. should bring a copy of their Birth Certificate.

There will be more and more details about Georgetown as we get it in. So visit www.redbud69racing.com for updates and information or visit the tracks new web at www.georetownspeedway.com.  This is a really good thing for our area and community. Loving racing just makes it thousands of times more fun. See you at the track!
