GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

 

 IT WAS TO BE SPONSORED BY SCOTT'S CHEM DRY SEAFORD, DE

but the bill was not paid causing someone to get credit for something

that was not done not to mention, left with a bill that I can't pay at this time. 

Very upsetting to back out of your word on something as this where you should

be proud to sponsor on an award especially getting the free press.

THE GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY AND PENINSULA OIL AND PROPANE BEAT THE WEATHER AND HAD A GREAT NIGHT OF ACTION!


By Wade Perdue Georgetown, DE... The weather didn't look good as threatening sky's where all around the Georgetown Speedway. In fact just before intermission the clouds opened up and a brief shower rolled through. All it did was cool off the hot of the summer, and make the clay on the big ½ mile even faster, giving the fans one heck of a show.

The first feature of the night was the Georgetown Vintage club for their ten lap feature. Rick Loveland lead the field to the green, but it wasn't long before Mark Williams would take the lead on lap one. Then the 11 of Mel Joseph Jr, Morris Tucker and last weeks feature winner CJ Schirmer marched their way to the front to make it a four car battle. CJ Schirmer would quickly take the lead and left the rest of the field to battle for second. Schirmer in the number 23 would take the win again followed by Morris Tucker in second.  Mel Joseph in the Bert Ritter 11 finishes in third. Mark Williams and Ronald Ford rounded out the top five.

 

Georgetown Vintage Club Finish= 1). 23 CJ Schirmer 2). 8 Morris Tucker 3). 11 Mel Joseph Jr. 4). 28 Mark Williams 5). 65 Ronald Ford 6). 19 Rick Loveland 7). 19 Herbie Hobbs 8). 23 John Irwin 9). 141 Jim Reed 10). 44 James Laplant.

The Super Late Models hit the speedway for their 20 lap feature on Peninsula Oil and Propane night. All the drivers had some extra incentive this week as a $200 bounty was put on new points leader Ricky Elliott. Pole sitter Rob Schirmer took the lead from the start followed closely by Mark Pettyjohn. The caution would come out as the PJ1 of Pettyjohn spins all by himself in turns one and two. That put Schirmer still in the lead but the 45 of Ricky Elliott worked his way up to second. It wasn't long before Elliott would take the lead on the restart and never look back collecting the bonus for himself and $1800 in winnings. From what I have heard the bounty will grow for the Super Lates in two weeks! New comer to the Georgetown Speedway David Williams finished in the second spot Kenny Pettyjohn finishes in third. Donald Lingo Jr. ,and Rob Schirmer rounded out the top five.

 

Super Late Model Finish= 1). 45 Ricky Elliott 2). 25W David Williams 3). 91 Kenny Pettyjohn 4). 22A Donald Lingo, Jr. 5). 118 Rob Schirmer 6). 7 Darryl Hills 7). 6 Jamie Lathroum 8). 12K Gary Simpson 9). PJ1 Mark Pettyjohn 10). 38 Bob Geiger 11). 99L Dale Lingo IV

The Crate Modifieds made their way out on the big ½ mile for fifteen laps of action. Mike White lead the 17 car field to the green and jumped out in front for a while. John Curtis was making a charge on White till he drove to low down in turn one and clipped the huge tractor tires on the bottom of the track, ripping the left front completely off the car ending his night on the hook. The restart showed Mike White still as the leader but coming all the way from 10th starting spot was the 30 of Jordon Watson. Watson would shot by White coming off of turn two, and pull away by almost a full straightaway winning on Peninsula Oil and Propane night. Mike White would finish second Andy Hammond and Justin Griffith came off of turn 4 in a dead heat and at the stripe the front bumpers were even and they tie for third. Tim Trimble rounded out the top five.

 

Crate Modified Finish= 1). 30 Jordon Watson 2). 21M Mike White 3). 14K Andy Hammond 3). 91 Justin Griffith 5). 21 Tim Trimble 6). 39 Joseph Watson 7). 55 Brian Robbins 8). 61 Mike Hough 9). 46 Jerry Carter 10). 31 Casey Lynch 11). 10 Bobby Balentine 12). 42 Adam Jarrell 13). 18 Jeff Marker 14). 1X Dan Riedy 15). 6 Scott Calhoun 16). 17 John Curtis 17). 9 Jeff Brown

The last feature of the night hit the speedway on Peninsula Oil and Propane night. The Crate Late Models scheduled for 15 laps of action with Eddie Williams showing the way. Right at the drop of the green the 44 of Tyler Reed jumped out in front and pulled away with lots of hard racing behind him. Dan Feidler and Billy Mellon put on a good show for about 5 laps before the 88 of Eddie Williams would spin cause a big pile up in turn four as caution flew. The field would line back up Reed leading and Sparky White in his first night out in the number 3 made his way up in the top five from 15th starting position. Tyler Reed was the class of the field as he wins ,with John Calloway second Ross Robinson third. Ryan Walls and Sparky White rounded out the top five.

 

Crate Late Model Finish= 1). 44 Tyler Reed 2). 95 Jon Callaway 3). 7 Ross Robinson 4). 14W Ryan Walls 5). 3 Sparky White 6). 12 Mike Wilson 7). 59 Kelly Putz 8). 56 Billy Mellon 9). V75 Erik McKinney 10). 35 Mike Parsons 11). 55 Hal Browning 12). 14M Mike Williams 13). 23 Travis Justice 14). 13M JT McLanigan 15). 37 Dan Feidler 16). 88 Eddie Williams 17). 26 Mark Williams 18). 20 Stacie Warrington 19). 82M Chris McLanigan 20). 32 Shane Sockriter 21). 5 Skip Syester 22). 09 Brent James DNS

It was a Memorial night for The Georgetown Speedway and the American Cancer Society!

8/3/07


By Wade Perdue Georgetown, DE.... The Ritter family could not have of thought of a better way to honor him than to race, and race they did. It was a very hot evening in Georgetown with temperatures in the 90's,but it didn't stop the fans, as the stands were full and so were the pits. It was almost like he was there. Just when the cars entered the speedway the wind picked up a little, cooling it off about ten degrees. We think it was him, making just a little cooler so we could enjoy a full night of action on the big half mile. The Georgetown Speedway and The American Cancer Society presented The First Annual "Race For A Cure" in honor of one of our own-- Bert Ritter.


The first of five features rolled out onto the speedway. The newly formed Georgetown Vintage club lined up for 10 laps of action. Leading the field around in the number 11 was Mel Joseph Jr. The number 11 has been owned by the Ritter family since the 50's and is all original with exception of the motor. The green flag flew with Joseph taking the early lead followed closely behind by Mark Williams, CJ Schirmer, and Morris Tucker. All four cars were fighting for the lead when the caution flew. The front pack was feeling very racy and did not adhere to the caution and tangled causing damage to the 11 of Joseph ending his night. Then it was Schirmer as he took the lead and never looked back, taking the checkered flag. A close battle for second as Williams and Tucker drove side by side coming off of four, as they crossed the line it was Mark Williams for second and Morris Tucker finished third. Rick Loveland and Herbie Hobbs rounded out the top five.


Georgetown Vintage Club Finish= 1). 23 CJ Schirmer 2). 28 Mark Williams 3). 8 Morris Tucker 4). 19 Rick Loveland 5). 19 Herbie Hobbs 6). 44 James LaPlant 7). 14A Josh Shockley 8). 141 Jim Reed 9). 11 Mel Joseph Jr. 10). 191 Kenny Archer DNS

The second Feature on tap for the evening was the Super Late Models for their 20 lap feature. Dale Lingo in the 99L lead the 15 car field to the green followed by Donald Lingo in the 22A. Close action involving Both the Lingo's the Pettyjohn, Kenny and Mark, and the 45 of Ricky Elliott. Caution came out quickly as the front runners were racing very close and it appeared that the 91 of Kenny Pettyjohn got into the back of the PJ1 of Mark Pettyjohn, causing him to spin. The green flag was dropped once again with Donald Lingo leading, but a hard charging Ricky Elliott was knocking on the door and took the lead from Lingo winning the race.

The Big Block Modifieds came out for their 20 lap feature on Bert Ritter Memorial night with the 5 of Don Hallowell starting on the pole. The race was pretty clean between the front runners Hallowell, and the 26 of Ryan Godown. Godown took the lead just after half way when a vicious crash involving one of the tires in turn one and Jimmy Horton IV. The 43 of Horton clipped one of the big tractor tires on the inside of the speedway. These tires are to keep the drivers from going to low in the corner and chopping the corner off. Horton's car jumped high into the air as the right front tire went underneath, the 43 launching him several feet landing directly down on the nose of the car once again and turning over landing on his wheels. Horton was a little shaken as you may expect but otherwise ok. With only a few laps remaining Ryan Godown had a commanding lead as the 85 of Wade Hendrickson tried to reel him in. Hendrickson runs out of time and Ryan Godown wins his second of the year at Georgetown and his second in a row. Wade Hendrickson finished second with Jamie Mills third. Duane Rust and Jason Daliessio make up the top five.

The Crate Late Models came out onto the big half mile for their 15 lap main event. The V75 of Eric McKinney showed the way and had no problems holding off the 24 car field to win the Crate Late Model Feature. The cautions were plenty however, just past half way the caution flew for a spin in turn four. Nick Davis got sideways and was sitting in the middle of the turn when hard contact between Davis and the 12K of Kevin Scott Jr. Scott appeared to have no where to go hitting the 92 hard ending both drivers night. During the same caution the 63 of John Imler went off the top of the backstretch and flips after hitting the dirt embankment doing extensive damage to his car. All drivers in both wrecks were ok. The rest of the race was dominated by Eric McKinney as he wins, followed by the 14W of Ryan Walls in second. Tyler Reed, Ross Robinson and John Calloway round out the top five.

The Crate Modifieds came out for the last feature of the evening. Grant Ireland lead the 19 car field to the green and it wasn't long before the 9 of Jeff Brown would take control as he passed both Ireland and Joseph Watson coming off of turn two on lap one and pulled away by 5 car lengths going down the back straightaway. It looked like Brown was going to be unbeatable pulling a full straightaway from second place. Just past half way Browns car started to fade all of a sudden as he started slipping back through the field giving the lead to Joseph Watson. Watson lead the rest of the laps taking the win. After the checkered flew the 16 of Ted Reynolds blew of the top hose on the radiator on his machine. Reynolds suffered minor steam burns and was transported to the hospital for a checkup. The 31 of Casey Lynch finished second Jordon Watson finished third from his 10th starting position. Justin Griffith and John Lynch rounded out the top five.

Georgetown Speedway
142 Broadkill Road
Milton, DE 19968


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


GEORGETOWN, DE-Like race car rusting in someone’s yard for 10-years Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, DE is in need of repairs. Since  reopening last season some needed repairs have been completed, others  haven’t. Most importantly the track’s electrical system is showing  signs of age and lack of upkeep. Over the past month wiring problems  have caused short blackouts.

“It has been frustrating over the past month or so to have the lights  go out during the race evening,” admitted track spokesperson David  Brown. “Fans, racers and crew members have been very understanding,  but we owe it to them to provide the best night of racing possible and  feel these repairs must be completed to our satisfaction before we race  again,” Brown added.

Speedway staff worked all week trying to correct these wiring problems.  Unfortunately the electrical problems have not been repaired forcing  the speedway’s Board of Investors to cancel racing for the next two  Friday nights July 20th and 27th. “We apologize to our fans and race  teams for having to cancel those shows,” Brown stated adding, “The  track sat idle for nearly 10- ears before we started racing again in  2006. The track saw very little maintenance during that 10-year period  and things like the lights and wiring are now showing signs of failure  following that long period of sitting idle.”

When racing resumes August 3rd a grand event will be added to the  schedule. In memory of longtime speedway supporter Bert Ritter, who  recently lost a battle with cancer, a memorial event benefiting the  American Cancer Society Walk for a Cure will be held that night.  Feature racing that evening will include Big Block Modifieds, Super  Late Models, Crate Modified and Crate Late Models. The popular   Georgetown Vintage Racing Club will also join the August 3rd show and  kids will have a chance to win prizes including a chance to win a ride  in the Georgetown Speedway pace car leading feature fields to the green   flag. Additional news about this huge night of racing will be  announced as soon as it’s finalized.

The speedway’s full schedule is online at www.georgetownspeedway.com.  Racing will continue on Friday nights through September. Additional special events will be announced soon. Georgetown Speedway is located  near all Maryland and Delaware beaches so fans can enjoy great Friday night racing then spend the rest of the weekend at the beautiful  Delmarva shore. For more information call the speedway office at 302.684.3197.

Editor Correction


It was reported erroneously in last week local editions that Georgetown Speedway had worked out differences with sprint car racing and that the events were scheduled for August 3rd, November 2nd. etc. This release was incorrect and not sent out by Georgetown Speedway Management. Georgetown Speedway will not be running Sprint car races during 2007. If your paper included this release last week please print a correction.



For Immediate Release


Georgetown Speedway Reopens After Honoring a Great Friend

The Eastern Motorsports Museum will also be on hand with restored racing cars from the 1930-1940 era on display. Children will be included in the event with draws for free teeshirts and pace car rides to the lucky winners.

Georgetown Speedway is finalizing details for a Bert Ritter Memorial Race scheduled for August 3rd. The event will serve double duty to remember Mr. Ritter and will be a benefit for the American Cancer Society Walk for a Cure. Many of Ritter’s former racing associates including Freddy Brightbill have been invited to share in the night’s event.

Georgetown Speedway is a half mile dirt Speedway located one mile South of Georgetown on Rt 113, built in the late 1940’s by the late Melvin L. Joseph. The Speedway features Big Block Modifieds, Super Late Models, Crate Modifieds, and Crate Late Models regularly.

“Elliott Makes Quick Work of Georgetown Late Model Field”


By Doug Watson
Georgetown Delaware, Seaford Delaware’s Ricky Elliott once again stood in the Georgetown Speedway victory lane as he scored a thrilling win in the divisions 20-lap feature last Friday night.
One-time Georgetown late model feature winner Kenny Pettyjohn blasted from the pole to take the early race lead. As Pettyjohn led effortlessly through the first half of the event, tenth starting Ricky Elliott was making his presence known. Elliott worked his way into second by the 5th lap and began closing in on leader Pettyjohn. Once Elliott caught Pettyjohn, the race was far from over.
The duo would battle side by side for several laps, keeping the large Georgetown crowd on their feet. Unfortunately Pettyjohn’s Mid-Coastal Siding Rocket pulled up lame on the 18th circuit with mechanical problems handing the lead to Elliott. That was all Elliott needed as he scampered away to collect his third Georgetown late model win of the season. Pettyjohn’s brilliant run ended with an eighth place finish. “That was a real bad deal for Kenny (Pettyjohn) I hated to see him break like that.” Were the words from Elliott as he stood in Georgetown’s victory lane. “The track was in great shape tonight and the top was definitely the fastest way around, but I needed the lapped cars if I was going to get Kenny.”
Ray Davis Jr. would come home second, Mary Pettyjohn was third, David Pettyjohn, after an early race spin, rebounded for fourth and Rob Schirmer completed the top-five.
Pit Notes,
Heats for the season-low 12 car field went to Ricky Elliott and Kenny Pettyjohn. The third place Effort by Mark Pettyjohn was only his second top-five of the season. Track conditions were superb as the dust-free surface was smooth and very racy offering the competitors multiple lanes for racing.

Lingo Injured in Bizarre Last Lap Crash at Georgetown


By Doug Watson
As Georgetown late model winner Ricky Elliott was taking the checkered flag in the divisions 20-lap main a grinding front stretch crash marred the conclusion of the event. Donald Lingo Jr. and Ray Davis Jr. had been waging a fierce battle for second. As the pair raced off the fourth turn toward the checkered flag the lapped car of Bobby Williamson, who was at least three laps off the pace, was in the immediate path of the oncoming racers. Davis went high and Lingo went low with Lingo making contact with the Williamson machine sending Lingo hard into the front stretch retaining wall at full speed.
After the dust had settled, Davis avoided the incident and went on to finish second but Lingo was not as fortunate. Immediately the red flag was displayed as Lingo was slow to climb from his destroyed #22A as it sat on the home stretch. The Georgetown medical crew was quickly on the scene and discovered that Lingo had a pretty nasty wrist injury. As the demolished #22A was towed to the pit area I had a chance to catch up with Lingo and get his thoughts on the incident.
“That Guy (Bobby Williamson) shouldn’t have been there.” Stated a very somber and shaken Lingo. “ I can understand a guy trying to learn, but he’s been around for a long time and the end result is a brand new car is destroyed.” So what exactly is Georgetown’s lapped car policy? “ I’m not sure Lingo added. “Every time I got near him I don’t think he knew where he was going! He shouldn’t have been out there.” “We started dead last and had a shot at a good finish, but I really feel bad for my car owners Alex and Theresa Beaumont they have a lot of money in this deal, and now it’s pretty torn-up.”
Car owner Alex Beaumont was visibly upset after the incident as well. “ I don’t mind guy’s like that starting races, but when their more than two laps down it’s just not their night and they need to get off the track. This is a complete disgrace because this wreck is going to cost me at least $10,000 because the car is just about totaled and the guy who caused us to wreck doesn’t have half that much in his entire car!

Pauch Cruises To First Georgetown Win Of 2007



Georgetown, DE ….. Billy Pauch raced to his first Big Block Modified feature win of 2007 on Friday night at the Georgetown Speedway. Pauch led the final twenty-one laps of the 25 lap main to seal the victory over Ryan Godown. In other action Jon Calloway scored his second win of the year in the 20 lap Crate Late Model feature. Joseph Watson also won his second 20 lap feature of the year in Crate Modified action. The Little Lincoln 10 lap feature was won by Donald Robinson Jr..

Ryan Godown of Ringoes, NJ led sixteen Big Block Modifieds to the green flag and searching for his second win of the year. Jamie Mills was trying to find a way around Godown but Dale Hawkins spun to bring out the only caution of the event.

When the racing resumed moments later, Pauch worked by Mills and then squeezed by Godown just one circuit later. It would be the Billy Pauch show from that period on as he raced to a comfortable victory in the Will Brown’s Truck Repair and Kool Ice Seafood sponsored ride. Godown took second while Kenny Brightbill raced to a distant third place showing. Jamie Mills slipped to the fourth position while Wade Hendrickson moved up from his tenth starting position to round out the top five.

“I thought we were in trouble with Godown starting up front,” said Pauch during a post race interview. Pauch went on to finish saying, “But we managed get by him pretty easily, which was surprising, and drove to the win.”

Ryan Walls got the jump on the green flag that began the 20 lap Crate Late Model main event. Walls was leading but spun on the second lap, causing a seven car pile-up resulting in damage to Kelly Putz, Jon Calloway, Eddie Williams, Bobby Watkins, and Dan Fiedler, and himself.

Ray Davis Jr. assumed the lead and was immediately challenged by Mike Wharton and Ross Robinson. Four more cautions over the next four laps allowed Calloway to work back through the field and joined in on the challenge for the top spot.

Robinson moved to the front of the field and found Calloway knocking on the door. The two raced side by side over the final five laps with Robinson always able to win the race back to the line.

The final lap would be a bit different though as Calloway took the lead off of turn two of the final circuit. Robinson tried one final time in turns three and four, pulling alongside in the middle of the corner. Robinson’s move proved to be too aggressive as he spun in front of the remaining field. Everyone managed to work by Robinson as Calloway heading to the checkered flag.

Calloway, from Harrington, DE, drove the Calloway Furniture sponsored machine to his second win of the year. Ray Davis Jr. took runner-up honors with Wharton settling for third. Mike Wilson took fourth place while Fiedler brought his heavily damaged racer home to a fifth place finish.

The Watson brothers have combined for four wins in the nine Crate Modified races held to date. Jordan and Joseph Watson stole the show on Friday night as the two swapped the lead on three occasions through several caution flags. In the end it would be Joseph Watson racing away to a easy win over brother Jordan. Mike White started tenth but took third place. Chuck Tucker and Jeff Brown rounded out the top five.

Elliott Scores Georgetown Checkers


Georgetown, DE ….. Ricky Elliott of Seaford, DE led the final sixteen laps of the Super Late Model twenty-five lap contest on Friday night to score his second Georgetown victory of the year. Elliott, forced to start tenth after a poor pill draw, worked through traffic like a knife through butter and raced to a comfortable win over Donald Lingo Jr..

Ross Robinson of Georgetown collected his sixth 20 lap Crate Late Model victory of the year in a race that saw just three caution flags. Mike White of Laurel, DE won his first Crate Modified twenty lap feature of the year while CJ Schirmer won the ten lap Georgetown Vintage Club event.

Donald Lingo Jr., piloting the Alex Beumont owned 22a in 2007, led the nineteen car Super Late Model field to the green flag. Austin Hubbard quickly jumped into the second position and began looking for ways to get around the race leader. The two would battle for the top spot while Elliott began picking his way through the field.

Ricky Elliott slipped under Hubbard for second after eight circuits and then went right to work on Lingo. Lingo bobbled in turn two on the ninth lap and that was all Elliott needed as the “Rocket” raced away to victory.

Hubbard was trying to save third when he had contact with David Pettyjohn as the two raced side by side. Hubbard developed a flat tire on the sixteenth lap to bring out just the second of three cautions. Hubbard went to the pits and left Elliott, Lingo, and David Pettyjohn to fight it out.

A lap eighteen caution involving Vic Thomas and Rob Schirmer slowed the field once more and gave Lingo and David Pettyjohn one last shot at the leader. When the green dropped Elliott was up to the challenge and raced away to a two second victory.

“This new clay held up nicely on the track and made this track even faster,” proclaimed Elliott in victory lane. Elliot went on to add that, “I bet we were going at least 10 miles per hour faster this week than two weeks ago when we were here.”

Lingo held on a second place showing, his best finish of the year. David Pettyjohn worked up from his eighth starting position to take third. Kenny Pettyjohn rebounded from his lap one accident that sent him to the rear to take fourth. Dale Lingo completed the top five.

Jamie Lathroum took sixth place honors while Mark Pettyjohn settled for seventh. Ray Dais Jr., Ray Kale Jr., and Schirmer rounded out the top ten.

Jon Calloway bypassed pole sitter Joe Warren on the start of the twenty lap Crate Late Model feature event. Calloway looked like he had the car to beat as he paced the eighteen car field over the first thirteen circuits. Calloway found Ryan Walls to be his stiffest competition in the early going but Ross Robinson passed both of them in turns one and two and raced away to lead the fourteenth lap.

Robinson never looked back and ran away to an emotional victory in which he dedicated to his uncle that passed away earlier in the week. Calloway held off Walls to take second while Walls settled back in third. Tyler Reed got by Mike Wharton on lap nine but could never muster a challenge to Walls for position. Staci Warrington kept busy during the twenty lap event as she moved up from her last starting spot to round out the top five.

Jeff Brown led the twenty one starters to the green flag to begin the twenty lap Crate Modified main event. Brown was up to the challenges from Andy Hammond over the first eight laps as the one time feature winner looked for ways around the leader. Hammond looked inside and out but could never get by Brown.

Mike White started ninth and made his way to third by lap eight and then took second just two circuits later. White would hound Brown over the next three laps before finally getting by on the outside to lead lap fourteen. White never looked back as he raced to his first career Crate Modified victory.

Brown held off John Curtis for second with Curtis settling for third. Joseph Watson took fourth while Casey Lynch posted his finish of the year with a fifth. Hammond slipped to sixth after racing for the lead during the early part of the race.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night June 15 featuring the Big Block Modifieds. Crate Late Models and Crate Modifieds will also be on the racing schedule. Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7 pm, and racing underway at 7:40 pm. For more information, visit www.georgetownspeedway.com  or call (302) 856-7415.

Hendrickson Returns To The Georgetown Winners Circle



Georgetown, DE ….. (6/8/07) Wade Hendrickson of Lawrenceville, NJ led the final twenty laps of the twenty-five lap Big Block Modified feature to score his third win of the year at the Georgetown Speedway. Hendrickson held off a hard charging Billy Pauch, beating him to the stripe by six car lengths. Other winners included Ross Robinson of Georgetown, DE capturing his fifth Crate Late Model feature of the year and Jordan Watson of Milford, DE taking home his third Crate Modified victory.

Scott VanGorder led the seventeen Big Blocks to the green flag but Brian Godown jumped to the outside from his third starting position in turn one to take the top spot. VanGorder tucked in line but was quickly challenged by Hendrickson. The only caution of the event slowed that battle when Jimmy Chester spun in front of Judd Mills and Dale Hawkins on the third circuit. Hawkins was able to return while Chester and Mills retired to the pits.

Brian Godown took the green flag to resume the action while Hendrickson looked for ways around VanGorder. It didn’t take Hendrickson long as he shot to the inside of VanGorder on lap four and then moved in to challenge for the lead. Godown was up for the challenge for one lap but it would Hendrickson racing by to lead the sixth lap.

Billy Pauch started the feature in fifth and quickly worked his way through the field to challenge for the second spot. Pauch finally worked by the speedy Godown on the ninth lap, leaving Godown to battle with the ninth place starter Kenny Brightbill and tenth place starter Ryan Godown. Both tag teamed Brian on the fifteenth lap with Ryan taking third and Brightbill fourth.

Hendrickson held a straight away advantage at one point but Pauch could only get to the rear bumper in the final five laps. Hendrickson was up to the challenge and held on for the six car length victory while driving the Art Collins Trucking sponsored Teo Fab car.

“Man I love this place,” proclaimed race winner Hendrickson in victory lane. Hendrickson added, “my guys have this car dialed in here and I can’t thank them enough. The track was different tonight, a little slicked over, but it sure was racy.”

Pauch easily took second while Ryan Godown held on for third. Brightbill held off the challenges of Jamie Mills to take fourth while Mills rounded out the top five. Brian Godown took sixth while VanGorder, Brian Kressley, Mark Byram, and Chad James rounded out the top ten. Heats were won by Pauch and Ryan Godown.

Travis Justice led the twenty car Crate Late Model field to begin the twenty lap feature event. An accident on the initial lap was just one of three cautions that fell in the event and Justice got a second opportunity for a better start. The green flag fell a second time and Justice raced into one with Ryan Walls working on the rear bumper.

Walls worked by and appeared to be on his way to victory after opening up a comfortable margin. A caution on lap eight is not what Walls was looking for as tenth place starter and three time race winner Ross Robinson had moved to second.
 

When the green fell again, Walls led the next two circuits but the Grotto's Pizza entry for Robinson was just too much as he worked to the inside to take away the lead. Robinson never looked back as he won his fifth Crate Late Model feature of the year. Walls settled for second place in the event. Justice held off the many challenges of Jon Callaway to take third while Callaway ran fourth. Mike Parsons posted his best finish of the year with a fifth. Heats were won by Eddie Corbin and Bobby Watkins.

The Crate Modifieds started the race with sixteen of the eighteen entries taking the green flag. Six cautions over the first eight laps eliminated all but nine cars and made for a great race over the final twelve laps.

Jordan Watson led through the caution filled period of the event but gave way to Tim Trimble on lap eight. Trimble settled down in front for a lap but Watson was not ready to relinquish the lead. The two had a comfortable advantage over the rest of the field as they battled for the lead. Watson led the tenth lap and never looked back, despite the efforts of Trimble. Watson collected his third win of the year while Trimble took second, his seventh top five finish of the year.

Justin Griffith took third place honors with Jerry Carter taking fourth. Randy Hill crossed the stripe in fifth but came up light at the scales, handing the fifth position to John Curtis. Trimble and Watson won the qualifying heat races.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night June 15 with the Super Late Models, Crate Modifieds, and Crate Late Models. Gates will open at 5 pm with hot laps scheduled to get underway at 7 pm. Qualifying heats will begin to set the feature line-ups at 7:35.

Smith & Michael Enter Georgetown’s Winners Circle



Georgetown, DE ….. GR Smith of Huntersville, NC became the fourth different winner in four Super Late Model features at the Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, DE on Friday night. Smith, in just his second appearance at the First State speed plant, held off a couple of former Modified hot shoes in Billy Decker and Ricky Elliot to secure the victory.

Curt Michael beat a thin field of ten cars in the 360 Sprint Car feature to claim his first Georgetown victory. Tim Trimble of Easton, MD won the 20 lap Crate Modified feature to notch his first victory of the year. Ross Robinson of Georgetown collected his fourth Crate Late Model 20 lap feature win of the year.

It took three attempts but Jamie Lathroum led the twenty car field of Super Late Models to the green flag to begin the 25 lap main event. GR Smith wasted little time and took the lead in turn one, leaving Lathroum behind to battle with Kenny Pettyjohn.

Smith led through several caution periods as the twenty car field began to thin. Contenders Tim Fuller, Billy Decker, and Ricky Elliot all were involved in early altercations but returned to challenge for the victory.

Fuller was the first to try and pick apart Smith, moving in to challenge by lap nine. Fuller tried on several occasions to pull alongside Smith’s Premier Motorsports/Outlaw sponsored ride but rear end troubles would send Fuller to the pits early and end his threat.

Billy Decker, the teammate of Fuller, picked up the pursuit but failed to draw close enough to steal the victory. Decker had to settle for second after holding off the many challenges from Seaford, DE’s Ricky Elliot. Kenny Pettyjohn and David Pettyjohn rounded out the top five in a feature that saw just thirteen of the original twenty starters finished.

Gary Gollub has logged many laps at the Georgetown Speedway over the years and started the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car feature from the point. Gollub led the first eight laps but Curt Michael, piloting the Palladino Motorsports number 99, blew by for the lead on the ninth circuit.

Michael opened up a straightaway advantage while Chris Coyle worked up from his sixth starting position. Coyle finally got by Gollub and set sail on chasing down Michael. With the fans on their feet, Coyle got within two car lengths but ran out of time and settled for second. Gollub held on for third. Scott Pursell and Justin Collette completed the top five.

Joseph Watson had his hands full with Tim Trimble, Justin Griffith, and Mike White in the 20 lap Crate Modified feature. Watson’s lead was short lived as Trimble won both the battle and the war as he took the lead after two laps and raced to his first win of the year. Trimble, from Easton, MD, held off Justin Griffith after he slipped by Joseph Watson. Jordan Watson moved from thirteenth to finish third as he edged Jeff Brown, who posted his best finish of the year with a fourth place showing. Joseph Watson held on to round out the top five after late race struggles.

Kelly Putz led 19 of the 20 laps in the Crate Late Model feature but failed to lead the most important one, the final lap. Ross Robinson snuck to the inside of Putz after taking the white flag and slipped up in front of the leader to race to his fourth win of the year. Putz had to settle for a disappointing second. Ryan Walls crossed the line third but post race inspection found his ride to be light, handing Mike Wharton the third spot.

Godown Finally Gets Trip To Georgetown Winners Circle



Georgetown, DE ….. Ryan Godown of Ringoes, NJ has always run well at the Georgetown Speedway but has never been able to make the elusive trip to victory lane. That all changed on Friday night as Godown drove the Stanton Hills Landscaping mount to an exciting two car length victory over Billy Pauch.

Ross Robinson finally returned to the winners circle after claiming the Crate Late Model 20 lap main event. Jerry Carter was in front when the caution and checkered waved together to end the caution plagued and shortened 10 lap Crate Modified main.

Ryan Godown started the 25 lap Big Block Modified main from third place but quickly jumped on top of the seventeen car field. Dale Hawkins gave chase over the first four laps before tenth place starter and two time winner Wade Hendrickson and ninth place starter Pauch moved in to challenge.

The second place battle between Pauch and Hendrickson allowed Godown to open a substantial lead but three early cautions over then first nine laps kept them close. When racing resumed on lap ten Godown was leading Pauch, Hendrickson, Judd Mills, Scott VanGorter, and sixteenth place starter Kenny Brightbill.

Pauch and Hendrickson resumed their battle while Godown opened up a twelve car length advantage. The race stayed green and Pauch closed in over the closing laps as the leaders began to work lapped traffic. Godown ran up on two cars racing door to door in turn three while heading to the white flag and Pauch on the rear bumper. Godown decided to “thread the needle” and split the two in turn three.

That move proved to be essential as Godown left turn four with a four car length advantage and raced away to his first win at Georgetown. Pauch claimed second while Hendrickson held on for a third place finish. Brightbill returned from mechanical problems that kept him from competing in a heat race to take fourth. Chad James rounded out the top five.

“We really like this race track so it feels good to finally get a win here after so many tries,” commented a jubilant Godown during the post race interview.

Godown raced at Georgetown in 2006 on six occasions posting three seconds and three thirds. In two previous races in 2007, Godown has a second and a seventeenth. Now he can add a win to his record after Friday night’s impressive run. Godown and Judd Mills won the qualifying heat races.

Mike Wilson led the seventeen car Crate Late Model field to the green flag and managed to lead the first lap. But it was all Ross Robinson and the Grottoes Pizza number seven after that as he raced to his third win of the year. Wilson held off Herb Tunis for the runner-up honors. Mike Wharton worked forward from his tenth place starting position to take fourth. Kelly Putz followed Wharton from eleventh to round out the top five.

Heat races were won by Tyler Reed and Wharton.

Five caution periods over the first ten laps would signal the early end to the Crate Modified feature event. The final caution, brought out by Justin Griffith and his spin off the banking in turn two, came as Jerry Carter, Joseph Watson, Mike White, Adam Jarrell, and Tom Curtis were all battling for the lead.

Carter led the twenty-on car field to the green and led the first two circuits before giving way to Joseph Watson. Watson fended off several challenges from Carter over the next five laps but could only watch as Carter drifted back in front to lead lap nine. White was knocking on the door of both lead cars with Jarrell and Curtis just waiting for something to happen.

Well that something did happen when Griffith went spinning and the decision was made to call the event after ten laps. Carter was credited with the victory while Watson and White protested the finish. Watson was officially awarded second place while White took third place honors. Jarrell and Curtis rounded out the top five in the running order. John Wynn and Jordan Watson won the heat racing events.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night June 1 with 360 Sprint cars and Super Late Models. Crate Late Models and Crate Modifieds will also be on the racing schedule. Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7 pm, and racing underway at 7:40 pm. For more information, visit www.georgetownspeedway.com  or call (302) 856-7415.

Elliot Slips By Pettyjohn For Georgetown Victory



Georgetown, DE ….. Ricky Elliot of Seaford, DE led the final one and a quarter laps of the 25 lap Super Late Model feature on Friday night at the Georgetown Speedway to claim his first victory of the year at the First State oval. Elliot’s win came at the expense of Milton’s Kenny Pettyjohn, who had to settle for a second place finish.

Eric Vent captured his first career Crate Late Model feature event while Jordan Watson took top honors in the Crate Modified. The Georgetown Vintage Club wrapped up the racing action with CJ Schirmer posting the Modified victory and Herbie Hobbs getting his second Sportsman win of the year.

Dale Lingo led bristling field of Super Late Models to the green flag to begin Friday nights 25 lap feature event but it was Kenny Pettyjohn taking over the top spot by the time the cars reached the first turn. Pettyjohn set sail on a blistering pace leaving Lingo to battle with Donald Lingo Jr. and David Pettyjohn.

Three cautions slowed the field over the first nine laps but Kenny Pettyjohn was able to open up a big advantage each time the green flag waived. Donald Lingo was busy chasing Pettyjohn but he had his hands full with tenth starting Ricky Elliot by the time the cars went green on lap nine.

Elliot wasted little time getting by Lingo as he moved into the runner-up spot after ten circuits. A caution on lap twelve gave Elliot his first shot at the leader but Pettyjohn was still much too strong at the half-way mark.

Fans were drawn to their feet when Ray Kable slowed the field at the twenty lap mark with a spin, setting up what should have been a five lap shoot-out. When the race went back green Elliot tried in vane to work by Pettyjohn, pulling alongside on several occasions. A final caution on lap twenty-three for Rob Schirmer would set up a two lap battle that would be waged in a traffic free zone.

With the fans on their feet, Pettyjohn led Elliot into turn one of the fast 5/8ths mile oval. Pettyjohn and the Mid-Coastal Siding machine kept the Charles Jarvis owned Rocket driven by Elliot at bay off turn two. The two raced down the backstretch and Elliot drove deep into the corner to take the low line from Pettyjohn. As the two raced off turn four Elliot drifted in front of Pettyjohn and raced away to the three car length victory.

Pettyjohn settled for second with Donald Lingo Jr. putting the Alex Beumont owned 22a in the third spot. Jamie Lathroum worked up from his eighth starting position to take fourth while Scott Cross rounded out the top five after starting fourteenth.

Dale Lingo, Mike Williams, Ross Robinson, Schirmer, and Bob Geiger completed the top ten. Heat races were won by Donald Lingo Jr. and Elliot.

Eric Vent started on the pole and never looked back as he led the seventeen car Crate Late Model field to victory. Vent survived the four caution periods in a race in which he was virtually unchallenged on his way to recording his first career victory in the division.

Kelly Putz, Ryan Walls, and Mike Wilson were staging a great battle for second throughout much of the race but Walls would pit after thirteen circuits with mechanical issues. This left Putz and Wilson to battle it out with Putz holding on for the runner-up spot and his best finish of the year. Wilson took third with Ed Corbin collecting fourth. Dan Fiedler rounded out the top five in a 20 lap feature that saw only the top seven cars finish the race. Mike Wharton and Travis Justice were the two other survivors of the race. Heat were won by Putz and Walls.

Jordan Watson led his brother Joseph Watson, Tom Curtis, Mike White, and the rest of the twenty-one Crate Modifieds to the green flag. Jordan Watson kept everyone at bay as the Milford, DE resident kept his Courtland Manor sponsored Bicknell in front for the entire 20 lap event.

Mike White and Joseph Watson spent the entire 20 lap feature fighting with Brian Robbins while Tim Trimble and Curtis tried to join in on the second place battle. With the victory within the grips of Jordan Watson Mike White was left to settle for second as he just did beat Joseph Watson back to the stripe. Joseph Watson, the third place finisher, would come up light at the scales during post race inspection, thus handing third to Robbins. Trimble managed to place fourth while Curtis settled for fifth. Heats were won by White and Andy Hammond.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday, May 25 with Big Block Modifieds, Crate Late Models, and Crate Modifieds. Wade Hendrickson will be going for three consecutive victories in Big Block action. Gates open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7, and racing underway at 7:35.

New Sprint Car Race Dates Announced For Georgetown Speedway



Georgetown, DE ….. The Sprint Cars are coming back to Georgetown! The “Winged Warriors” of speed have been added to five existing Friday night race dates at the Georgetown Speedway. Delmarva sprint car fans should mark their calendars for June 1, July 6, August 3, September 21, and November 2.

Speedway General Manager David Brown announced that race fans can look forward to some more “flat-footed” action on the very fast 5/8ths mile oval. The Sprints will join the Super Late Models on the racing schedule for their next event on June 1.

“We received a lot of positive comments about our Sprint Car show from both the fans and competitors and that has rolled over to phone calls from other drivers that were not even on hand,” commented Brown. He went on to add that “Sprint car teams have requested the opportunity to race on two consecutive nights when making the long trip south and we are happy to give them and our fans this opportunity.”

Chris Coyle won the first sprint car race of the year at the Georgetown Speedway on May 11. Coyle will return to defend his victory but early race leader and fellow contender Trevor Lewis and Justin Collett will have something to say about the finishing order.

The gates to the Georgetown Speedway open at 5 pm with hot laps slated to get underway at 7 pm. Qualifying heat races get the action started at 7:35. The unsanctioned event will follow the United Racing Club (URC) and ASCS car, wing, safety, and motor rules. All cars must also have a muffler and be equipped with an American Racer MC2 or ASCS’s 16 inch wide Hoosier on the right side.

Georgetown Speedway, a ½ mile dirt oval track, is located on U.S. Route 113, just 35 miles south of Dover, DE. The speedway is just a short 45 minute drive from Ocean City and just a bit longer from Washington DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia.

Coyle & Hendrickson End Up With Victories At Georgetown



Georgetown, DE ….. Chris Coyle of Wilmington, DE and Wade Hendrickson of Lawrenceville, NJ won their respective features on Friday night at the Georgetown Speedway after race leaders fell out due to an accident due to lapped traffic or flat tires.

Coyle took home top honors in the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car main while Hendrickson scored his second 25 lap Big Block Modified victory in as many attempts.

In other action, Chris Hitchens of Milton, DE won his first career Crate Modified feature while Joe Callaway, also from Delaware, finally reached the Crate Late Model winners circle. Pat McNeal put the Flyin’ Elvin Double Zero on top of the final run down for the Little Lincoln Vintage Cars.

Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy, PA and Middletown, DE’s Justin Collett led the eight rows of 360 sprints to the initial green flag to begin the 25 lap main. Lewis quickly jumped on top and put some distance between himself and Collett, who was busy fighting off Kurt Michael.

Michael would give way to Chris Coyle for third after eleven circuits while Collett closed in on Lewis. The two leaders worked slower traffic to perfection but would run into trouble when they closed in on Jeff Busby and Michael Higgenbottom. The two back markers were racing for position and almost made contact in turn one of the seventeenth lap. The two leaders had to back off and spun to avoid making contact. Lewis was able to rejoin the field at tail but Collett ended up breaking the left front suspension.

This handled the lead to Coyle, who only had to contend with a few challenges from Davey Sammons to claim the victory.

“Man this place was fast and everything went our way tonight,” claimed Coyle as he climbed from his Millmar Racing number 83. He went on to add, “People thought I was crazy for going back to my own team this year but we have got two (wins) already this year.”

Sammons tried valiantly on several occasions over the final seven laps but came up short in the end by six car lengths. Michael settled for a distant third while Scott Pursell raced to a fourth place showing. Brook Weibley advanced three spots from her starting position to take fifth.

Early race leader Trevor Lewis eventually dropped out with some additional mechanical problems with two laps remaining and settled for eighth. Heat races went to Lewis and Collett.

Ryan Godown of Ringoes, NJ led the nineteen car Big Block Modified field to the green flag with Chuck Tucker, Jamie Mills, Judd Mills, and Billy Pauch in tow. Pauch was already to second by the end of lap one and began to work on Godown. That battle would be short lived though as Godown slowed on the speedway with mechanical issues while working the fifth lap to bring out the yellow.

Pauch took over the top spot and was busy holding off the challenges of Jamie Mills and Mark Byram while Wade Hendrickson worked up from his tenth starting position. A second caution would slow the field on lap eleven that saw third place contestant Byram head to the pits with a flat.

The field went back to green but Robert Dutton spun off turn two after making contact with Dale Hawkins just one lap later. The third caution would prove costly for race leader Pauch as Hendrickson pulled alongside the New Jersey native to alert him of a flat left rear.

Pauch hit the pits and Hendrickson became the race leader with Jamie Mills, Kenny Brightbill, Chad James, and Judd Mills trailing. Two more cautions would slow the field through the end of the 25 lap feature but in the end it would be all Hendrickson as he put the Art Collins Trucking Teo machine back in victory lane.

“My hats off to Lou Johnson tonight because this track was so fast and smooth, you would never know that his mind and all of our prayers are with his wife right now,” said Hendrickson as he spoke of the surface in the post race interview.

Jamie Mills held off a hard charging Richie Pratt for second while the twelfth starting Pratt took third. Pauch battled back from the flat and involvement in one caution to steal fourth from Brightbill. Brightbill took fifth place honors. James, Byram, Mills, Hawkins, and Ricky Johnson completed the top ten. Heats were won by James and Jamie Mills.

Tim Trimble of Easton, Maryland looked as if he would have enough to win the 20 lap Crate Modified feature event. But in the end it would be Chris Hitchens bringing home his first career victory. Hitchens, driving the H&H Maintenance/Copps Seafood Troyer, slid by Trimble on the ninth lap and walked away to the impressive victory. Trimble held off Tom Curtis to take second while John Wynn posted his best finish if the year with a fourth place showing. Jordan Watson worked up from his tenth starting position to round out the top five. Hitchens and Jordan Watson won the two qualifying heats.

Two time feature winner Ross Robinson started the 20 lap Crate Late Model race in sixth but would be the leader by the end of the first lap. Robinson appeared to be well on his way to number three when something broke in the rear end and sent the leader spinning after seven laps. This gave the lead to Herb Tunis with Bobby Watkins and Jon Calloway in pursuit.

Only one caution flag slowed the Crate Late Model feature over the final ten laps and the racing between Tunis, Watkins, and Calloway kept fans on their feet. Tunis kept his car on the bottom but slipped up just a bit in turn four in an effort to keep Watkins at bay while working the eighteenth lap. That opening was just enough as Calloway squeezed by to take the lead with just two circuits left. Tunis was helpless as he watched Calloway race away to the victory. Tunis managed to keep Watkins behind him as the two finished second and third respectively. Ryan Walls and Mike Wilson worked from the back of the pack to round out the top five. Heat wins were collected by Walls and Robinson.

The Georgetown Speedway is back in action on Friday, May 18 with Super Late Models headlining the program. Crate Late Models and Crate Modifieds will also be on the three feature program that gets underway with qualifying heats at 7:35 pm.

Fuller Scores First Career Super Late Win At Georgetown



Georgetown, DE ….. Tim Fuller of Watertown, NY made his first appearance ever at the Georgetown Speedway a memorable one on Friday night as he scored his first career Super Late Model victory. Fuller held off the late challenges from Seaford’s Ricky Elliot to cruise to a fifteen car length victory.

Jordan Watson led flag to flag in the Crate Modified race to register his first win of the year. In the nightcap, Ryan Walls recorded his first ever Crate Late Model victory on Friday night after holding off Bobby Watkins.

David Pettyjohn of Milton, DE led twenty-two Super Late Models to the green flag to begin the 25 lap main event. The caution quickly waved by the time the cars reached turn one as Mike Williams took a ride off over the berm. A complete restart was set and the field made it to turn four before the yellow would wave for the second time.

This caution involved eight cars and eliminated locals Dale Lingo IV and Kenny Pettyjohn as well as visitors Jeremy Miller and Jason Covert. The third attempt was the charm as David Pettyjohn led the field back to green. Tim Fuller got a good jump and took only one lap before disposing of Pettyjohn and taking over the top spot.

Fuller, clearly the class of the field, would only feel some heat after the sixth and final caution bunched the field after nineteen laps. Fuller led Ricky Elliot and his teammate Billy Decker back to the final green and held off two hard attempts from Elliot before posting the memorable victory.

“This place was so fat fast and I was wondering when my first one (win) would come in these cars,” remarked a jubilant Fuller in victory lane. Fuller conclude by telling the fans, “This is my first time here in a Late Model or Modified and I will definitely be back.”

Ricky Elliot worked by GR Smith and David Pettyjohn with an inside sweep in turn four to take second on lap eleven. Elliot was able to pull alongside Fuller one time after the late caution but had to settle for the runner-up spot. Decker used up his equipment coming from the rear as he kept the fans on their feet watching his march forward to finish third. David Pettyjohn held off first time visitor GR Smith over the final two laps as the two rounded out the top five.

Rob Schirmer continued his impressive season as he posted a sixth place finish after starting sixteenth. Mark Pettyjohn worked by Darryl Hills with just three laps left to seventh. Hills was an early challenger for the lead but slipped back to eighth as the race wore on. Scott Cross started second but brought out the sixth caution with a spin and settled for ninth. Mark Elksnis was also involved in some early altercations but still managed to round out the top ten. Heats were won by Dale Lingo and Kenny Pettyjohn.

The Crate Modified and Crate Late Model features are scheduled for twenty laps or thirty minutes and there had to have been a full moon somewhere on Friday night. Both division features were cut short due to the time limit as several cautions slowed each event.

Jordan Watson got a good start and survived eight caution periods over the first nine laps to post his first win of the year. Justin Griffith tried to work by the ReMax machine but had to settle for second place. Jordan’s brother Joseph won the Crate Modified feature two weeks ago and worked his way to the front from tenth to take a third place finish. Easton, MD’s Tim Trimble started thirteenth and was running fourth when the checkers dropped after just nine circuits, leaving him to wonder where he would have finished had the race gone the distance. One time race winner Andy Hammond rounded out the top five. Heats went to Joseph Watson and Justin Griffith.

The Crate Late Model race lasted fourteen laps before the checkers flew over top of Ryan Walls. Eddie Williams led the twenty-five car field to the green flag and held onto the top spot for two laps before Walls squeezed by for the lead.

Williams gave chase for a few laps before Bobby Watkins took over the runner-up spot and the right to challenge. Watkins had nothing for the eventual winner and could only watch as Ryan Walls posted his first career Crate Late Model victory. Mike Wharton started eleventh and worked his way up to third before the seventh and final caution slowed the field. Ross Robinson, winner of both Crate Late Model events in 2007, worked from his tenth starting point to take fourth while Kevin Scott Jr. rounded out the top five. Heat victories went to Stacie Warrington and Robinson.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday, May 11 with the 360 Sprint Cars joining the Big Block Modifieds to headline the five race program. Crate Modifieds, Crate Late Models, and the Vintage Cars will join the racing card that gets started with hot laps at 7 pm. Heat races will begin at 7:35.

2006 MACS Champ Jason Covert to Race at Georgetown Friday May 4



Georgetown, DE ….. Barry Klinedinst Motorsports and 2006 Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MACS) Champion Jason Covert have made plans to race at the Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, Delaware on Friday night. The Super Late Model standout will join a host of others as they headline the racing action at the speedway on Friday night. Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps get underway at 7 pm, with racing set to follow at 7:35 pm.

Covert is in his second year driving the Pre-Mach, Inc./Red Wing Shoes/Hershey’s Racing Engines/Baker Carburetion/Bam’s Auto Center/Kuppy’s Diner/Rocket Chassis Monte Carlo for Barry Klinedinst Motorsports. The duo enjoyed great success in their first year together as they racked up five wins along with the Mid-Atlantic Championship Series title over veterans Mike Balzano and Jim Bernheisel.

Covert, from York Haven, Pa enters the Super Late Model event at Georgetown fresh of a third place finish in last Saturday’s Lucas Oil Series race at Hagerstown Speedway in Maryland. It was the teams second third place finish in as many appearances at Hagerstown this year. The team has recorded one victory this year in Super Late Model competition with that win coming in the March 31 event at the historic Williams Grove Speedway in Pennsylvania.

“We have been looking forward to getting over to Georgetown and this weekend works out great for us, said an excited Jason Covert. He went on to add, “I have heard so much about that place and how fast it is so we are really looking forward to racing there as long as everything stays together Thursday night.”

Covert will have hands full when he pulls into the First State speed plant on Friday night. Kenny Pettyjohn of Millsboro, DE collected the first Super Late Model victory of the year and he will surely be a contender again this Friday night. Add fellow regulars Mark Pettyjohn, David Pettyjohn, Rob Schirmer, and Donald Lingo Jr and you have the top five finishers from opening night. Do not discount the competition from Hamburg, PA’s Scott Haus, Centreville, MD’s Scott Cross or Southern Maryland’s David Williams as all of the above mentioned drivers have registered victories and/or championships at some point in their careers.

Racers competing at the Georgetown Speedway are reminded that they must run an American Racer 44 or a Hoosier 1300 or D15 on the right rear only. All cars must be equipped with a working RaceCeiver.

Georgetown Speedway, a ½ mile dirt oval track, is located on U.S. Route 113, just 35 miles south of Dover, DE. The speedway is just a short 45 minute drive from Ocean City and just a bit longer from Washington DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia.

Georgetown Sprint Car Show Moved To Friday, May 11



Georgetown, DE ….. It has been fifteen long years since Sprint Cars have raced at the Georgetown Speedway. Fans got a glimpse of a few cars making laps in 2006 and now they will be treated to an all out invasion. Speedway General Manager David Brown just announced that the Sprint Car show originally scheduled for Wednesday, May 9 has been moved to form an incredible four feature program on Friday night May 11.

The 360 Sprints will join the Big Block Modifieds (25 laps), Crate Late Models (20 laps), and Crate Modifieds (20 laps). Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7 pm, and racing underway at 7:35 pm.

“We took several calls from owners and drivers asking us to race on Friday night due to the cost of gas and travel in general,” commented speedway General Manager David Brown. Brown went on to conclude, “It really made perfect sense and in turn should help draw in some additional race teams that may not have been able to make the trip.”

Kevin Welsh is expected to contend with the likes of fellow New Jersey and Pennsylvania drivers Davey Sammons, Michael Carber, Gary Gollub, Bryan Seidel, Tim Hougue, Craig Folmer, Lucas Wolfe, Chad Layton, and Brook Weibley. The invasion may be coming from the North but the local sprint car talent is just as competitive. Look for the local Delaware contingent of Ocean View’s Curt Michael, Wilmington’s Chris Coyle, Middletown’s Justin Collett, and Salisbury Maryland’s Bryan Brittingham to defend Georgetown’s victory lane.

The unsanctioned event will follow the United Racing Club (URC) and ASCS car, wing, safety, and motor rules. All cars must have a muffler and be equipped with an American Racer MC2 or ASCS’s 16 inch wide Hoosier on the right side.

Georgetown Speedway, a ½ mile dirt oval track, is located on U.S. Route 113, just 35 miles south of Dover, DE. The speedway is just a short 45 minute drive from Ocean City and just a bit longer from Washington DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia.

Rain Forces Georgetown Speedway To Cancel



Georgetown, DE ….. Rain and dirt do not mix, especially when the rain falls in heavy amounts within twelve hours of a planned racing event. That uncanny mix has forced Georgetown Speedway Promoter Lou Johnson to pull the plug on the Big Block Modified led racing card at the First State speed plant originally scheduled for Friday night April 27.

Racing will resume on Friday, May 4 with the Super Late Models leading the charge. The Crate Late Models and Crate Modifieds will join the Super Lates for a complete wheel to wheel fender rubbing racing program. Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7 pm, and qualifying heats get underway at 7:35 pm.

Kenny Pettyjohn Takes New Ride To The Winners Circle at Georgetown



Georgetown DE ….. Kenny Pettyjohn led all twenty-five laps of the Super Late Model main on Friday night at the Georgetown Speedway to claim his first win of the year. Pettyjohn, driving for the Mid-Coastal Siding Racing Team alongside Anthony Rushing, gave the team their first Georgetown Speedway victory. Other action saw Ross Robinson take his second consecutive Crate Late Model victory while Joe Watson stole the Crate Modified win from Brad Trice.

Kenny Pettyjohn and Mark Pettyjohn led the twenty-two car field of Super Late Models to the green flag. The two quickly assumed control of the event while Scott Haus took up pursuit from his sixth starting position. Neither Mark Pettyjohn nor Haus had anything for the flying eleven as Kenny Pettyjohn opened up half straight away leads in between caution flags.

With the leaders in control fans began to focus on some drivers that started further back in the pack. Scott Cross and Mike Williams, starting eighteenth and twentieth respectively, had their work cut out for them. They patiently worked through the slower traffic over the first ten laps, finally cracking the top ten.

Trouble on the Haus machine would slow the field on the fifteenth circuit as the third place driver slowed on the backstretch. Kenny Pettyjohn now had ten laps to hold off the challenges from Mark Pettyjohn, new challenger David Pettyjohn, Donald Lingo Jr., Dale Lingo, and Mike Williams. A caution just one lap later sent Williams and Donald Lingo to the rear and put Ralph Schirmer and Scott Cross in position to battle for the win.

When the final green flag dropped Kenny Pettyjohn never looked back as he raced away to a very comfortable victory. Mark Pettyjohn held off fellow kin David Pettyjohn as the three held a Pettyjohn “family reunion” of sorts at the top of the finishing order. Ralph Schirmer was impressive over the final five laps as he took fourth with Donald Lingo Jr. rebounding in the Alex Beumont owned ride to round out the top five.

In victory lane Pettyjohn said, “I think this is the fastest I have ever been here, almost able to hold her open all the way around and that is saying something.”

David Williams snuck by Scott Cross on the final corner to take sixth with Cross settling for seventh. Williams, Dale Lingo, and GG Messick completed the top ten. Heat race victories went to Kenny Pettyjohn and Mark Pettyjohn.

Mike Wilson led the nineteen Crate Late Models to the green flag and was able to hold off early challenges from Tyler Reed and Dennis Fiedler. Wilson looked so strong that it appeared as if he might be heading for the winners circle until four cautions that fell between laps eight and ten bunched the field together.

A ten lap dash to the finish ensued with Wilson in front of tenth place starter Ross Robinson, Bobby Watkins, and Joe Warren. Wilson got a good jump on the restart but it didn’t but three laps before Robinson pushed the Grotto Pizza number seven by for the lead. Robinson never looked back while Wilson eventually pulled off the speedway due to mechanical issues.

Robinson collected his second consecutive victory while Watkins had to settle for his second consecutive runner-up finish. Warren took third place honors in his first run of the year. Ed Corbin rebounded from several incidents to take fourth with Staci Warrington posting an impressive fifth place finish. Heats were won by Wilson and Mark Williams.

Tim Trimble pulled the pole after heat races and earned the right to start in front of Casey Lynch and Brad Trice. When the green flag fell on the twenty-two starters Trimble was helpless as the Easton, Maryland barber watched Trice blow by and take command of the field. Trimble ducked in line and began to battle with Chris Hitchens and Mike White for second.

Two cautions would slow the field at the ten lap mark, including one that involved six cars in turn one. The tenth lap six car crash sent sixth place driver and hard charging Jordan Watson to the pits to repair a flat.

When the action resumed Trice had Joe Watson, Trimble, White, and Jerry Corbin Jr. in tow. Trice had his hands full with the ReMax ride of Watson as the two sliced and diced around the fast Free State speedway. Watson repeatedly tried the low line and was never successful until the two entered the final corner on the final lap.

Trice drifted just a tad high and Watson put his ride on the bottom and swept up in front of Trice to steal the victory. Trice had to lift momentarily to keep from taking out Watson and settled for second. Trimble took third while Justin Griffith battled from his eighth starting position to take fourth. White held on for a fifth place showing. Heats were won by Griffith and Trice.

The Georgetown Vintage Race Car Club made a special appearance on Friday night to close out the racing action. Sonny Ritter won the Modified class in his 1937 Ford Sedan while Herbie Hobbs won the Sportsman group in his 1937 Dodge.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday, April 28 with the Big Block Modifieds headlining the three race program. Crate Modifieds and Crate Late Models will join the racing card that gets started with hot laps at 7 pm. Heat races will begin at 7:35. General admission is just $12 with kids 12 and under admitted free with a paying adult. For more information, visit www.georgetownspeedway.com  or call (302) 856-7415.

Hendrickson Powers To Georgetown Victory



Georgetown DE ….. Wade Hendrickson of Lawrenceville, NJ led the final seven circuits of the 25 lap Big Block Modified feature on Friday night to win the season opening event at the Georgetown Speedway. Hendrickson worked his way up from the fifth starting position and beat fellow New Jersey resident Ryan Godown to the stripe. Ross Robinson led green to checker to win the 15 lap Crate Late Model feature. Andy Hammond took home top honors in the 15 lap Crate Modified main event.

Chad James of Laurel, DE led the twenty-one car Big Block Modified field to the initial green flag. James would get a second opportunity after seven cars got together in turn three to slow the start. Ricky Johnson and Sam Wescott Jr. were roll-over victims in the crash that also ended the night for Bobby Wilkins.

James would make the most of the second opportunity as he quickly opened up a big margin over Judd Mills, Wade Hendrickson, and Ryan Godown. Richie Pratt was running fifth but was feeling the heat from Billy Pauch and twenty-first place starter Matt Shepherd.

The leaders started working lapped traffic by the twelfth circuit with James being forced to move high. James moved so high on the fifteenth circuit that he caught the rim of the speedway in turn three. James was able to hold onto the lead but gave up a comfortable margin to a hard charging Hendrickson, who had gotten by Mills just one lap prior.

Hendrickson made his move on James as the two entered turn three of the seventeenth circuit. James slipped just a tad high giving Hendrickson enough room to put the Art Collins Trucking Teo Fab car on the bottom. Hendrickson got the desired bite and led by a half of a car length at the stripe. That margin was important because Judd Mills broke while racing down the front stretch and ended up over the banking in turn one to bring out the yellow.

A seven lap shoot-out to determine the victor was set with Hendrickson leading Ryan Godown, James, Pratt, Shepherd, and Pauch. Hendrickson took the green and powered away to a comfortable win over perennial Georgetown Speedway runner-up Godown. Pratt managed to work by an ill handling James with five laps left to take third with James settling back in fourth. Shepherd and Pauch staged a great race to the finish with Shepherd holding on to complete the top five. Pauch, Jimmy Chester, Robert Dutton, Chuck Tucker, and Mark Byram rounded out the top ten.

Ross Robinson and Travis Justice led the twenty-two Crate Late Model field to the green flag to begin their 15 lap main event. Robinson would survive several cautions and the challenges from Justice and Jon Calloway to seal the victory.

Bobby Watkins worked his way up from the tenth starting position to take second from Justice with just two laps remaining. Justice held of for third while Kelly Putz took fourth place honors. Mike Wharton held off late challenges from Mike Wilson to secure the fifth place finish.

Twenty-nine Crate Modifieds attempted to take one of the twenty-four positions open for the 15 lap feature event. Mike White and Andy Hammond earned the right to lead the field with Hammond quickly getting the jump.

It would be non-eventful for Hammond until late in the race when his handling started to fade. Jordan Watson worked his way through the field from his sixth starting spot to take second from Mike White after twelve laps but he did not have enough time to challenge Hammond for the win. Hammond posted the convincing victory over Watson. White faded after getting crossed up in turn four and watched Tom Curtis and Joseph Watson race by to take third and fourth. White managed to edge twenty-fourth place starter Tim Trimble for fifth.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night April 20 with the Super Late Models, Crate Modifieds, and Crate Late Models. Gates will open at 5 pm with hot laps scheduled to get underway at 7 pm. Qualifying heats will begin to set the feature line-ups at 7:35.
