UDTRA PRO DIRTCAR SERIES RETURNS TO GREEN VALLEY SPEEDWAY ON SEPTEMBER 28-29
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WOODSTOCK, GA - The United Dirt Track Racing Association Pro DirtCar Series
has announced it will be returning to Green Valley Speedway in Glencoe,
for a two-day show featuring a 100-lap $20,000-to-win main event.
The 2001 Green Valley Speedway show will mark the first visit to the
3/8-mile semi-banked clay oval since April 29, 1994 and the first trip to
Alabama since 1996.
"The race fans in the area were wanting a big show with the big names,
bringing in the UDTRA Pro DirtCar Series will give them what they want,"
owner/promoter Bill Teneyck said. "We've got around 10 local racers that
are capable of running competitively with the UDTRA regulars, and they want
a shot at them."
Bill T and his staff have made numerous improvements to Green Valley
Speedway since the last time the UDTRA Pro DirtCars visited the facility.
This has not gone unnoticed by the UDTRA regulars that have recently
competed at the track.
"They've made a lot great improvements at Green Valley Speedway, and I
't think I was at the same place," defending and four-time UDTRA Champion
Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN said. "It's really nice to see a
promoter taking the time to make their race track better for both the fans
One of Bloomquist's career-leading 78 UDTRA victories came during the last
UDTRA appearance at GVS in 1994.
"I'm looking forward to going back to Green Valley Speedway," Bloomquist
said. "The last time I ran there was in the daytime, and it was a good
track then. I learned a lot about the place then, so I'm looking forward
going there and racing at night."
The 1999 UDTRA Champion Dale McDowell of Rossville, GA is another driver
looking forward to returning to Green Valley Speedway.
"They have spent some money there updating, made a bunch of improvements,
and have made it a better facility," McDowell said. "Green Valley Speedway
has always been known as a pretty racy place, and the fans now have
comfortable facility to watch it at."
