Action Track USA Practice Night Draws 79 Cars & Nice Crowd Season Opener Set for Wednesday, May 22nd
Kutztown, PA - Monday evening, May 20, turned out to be warm, dry, and perfect for Practice Night at the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA at the Kutztown Fairgrounds.
A total of 79 racecars tested the reconfigured oval in preparation for Wednesday night's season opening Goldie Meitzler Memorial that gets underway with warm-ups at 6 p.m. Heat races for the wingless 600cc and winged 270cc Micro-Sprints, along with the NAPA All Star Slingshots will begin at 6:20. Timed hot lap sessions for the Insinger Performance/ Sunoco SpeedSTR's will start at 7:00, followed by qualifying heats and feature for the USAC sanctioned SpeedSTR's, along with features for the small car divisions.
Monday's practice sessions for all four of the divisions that will compete at the Action Track on a weekly basis included 26 of the wingless 600cc Micros; 25 of the NAPA All Star Slingshots; a dozen of the 270cc Micro-sprints; and 11 SpeedSTR's. There were also five Junior Slingshots in attendance (the Junior Slingers will be part of four events this season), as well as 2 Flat Track Motorcycle racers.
Each class was given multiple opportunities to dial in their mounts on the widened, progressively banked clay oval. Lap times decreased with each session as the drivers quickly acclimated themselves to the renovated surface.
Billy Pauch and Wayne Weaver had two of the quickest SpeedSTR's, while Mark Manieri, James Morris, Shane Lewis, and Jeff Hartman were fast in their wingless 600's.
The 270cc Micros and All Star Slingshots were trying different lines and practicing in side by side and three-wide fashion, providing solid proof that Tobias and Rose have created a racy speedway that will produce an abundance of wheel to wheel competition.
It all gets real on Wednesday evening, as the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA presents its first event - in true Kutztown fashion, the Goldie Meitzler Memorial kicks off the new season.
For your Midweek Motorsports Adrenaline Rush, it's the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA at the Kutztown Fairgrounds!
