SMALL-BLOCK MODIFIEDS SET FOR LEN SAMMONS, JR. MEMORIAL -- ON FRIDAY (SEPT. 8) AT EAST WINDSOR SPEEDWAY
EAST WINDSOR, N.J. ~ The cars and stars of the Small-Block Modified division at the East Windsor Speedway move into the spotlight this Friday evening (Sept. 8) at the half-mile clay oval as they battle in the Len Sammons, Jr. Memorial 25-lap main event. Also on
the Sammons Memorial Night card, which has been rescheduled after rain on August 11 and August 18, will be the Street Stocks in a 15-lapper and the Sportsman racers in a 20-lap headliner. As always, racing action starts at 7:30 p.m.
The Small-Block Modifieds will earn plenty of attention as they battle for prize money and championship points. Kenny Brightbill of Sinking Springs, Pa., Jimmy Horton of Neshanic Station, Craig Von Dohren of Barto, Pa., Frank Cozze of Wind Gap, Pa.,
Frenchtown's Billy Pauch and Doug Hoffman of Allentown, Pa. will lead a talented field of entries which will include Wade Hendrickson of Lawrenceville, Fred Dmuchowski of Neshanic and Robbinsville's Joe Zuczek, just to name a few. Qualifying races will determine the line up for the main event.
With 15 laps of main event action on tap, Street Stock competitors will be looking at lots of prize money and championship points as their reward. Plenty of competition from the likes of Kim Cooke of Princeton, defending champ Dave Brymer of Titusville and Larry Bubeck of New Hope, Pa., just to name a few. With standouts Ryan Godown of Ringoes, Richie Cass of Hightstown and John Oliver of Holland Township leading the way, the 20-lap Sportsman feature will also be a thriller.
Representatives of the Sammons family, who continue to publish the Area Auto Racing News that was founded by Len Sammons, Jr., will be on hand Friday evening to welcome fans and to present the winning trophies and other special awards.
Plans call for Friday evening racing to continue through September, with the point races wrapping up on Friday night, September 15, with the annual Hoosier Tire 100 racing program. The open competition second season of action then completes the Friday night
action this month, with the Hoosier Tire Twin 50's for the Street Stock and Sportsman racers set for Sunday afternoon, October 1.
