FONDA, NY – The racing museum has been a part of the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway for a few years now ever since it was moved from the McDonalds on Riverside Drive in Fultonville during their renovation. It has always been the responsibility of the racing promoter to appoint members to the museum and Hall of Fame committees and Pete and Matt Demitraszek are no different.

Ed and Betty Biittig, David and Jackie Lape, Bruce Dostal and Joe Achzet are the first appointments to the museum and Hall of Fame committee under the Demitraszek Enterprises banner and they have hit the ground running according to Matt Demitraszek.

“All of these people have a vast knowledge of local racing and we have a good mix of ages and memories,” Demitraszek said. “These people all have different experiences and connections in the racing community and I feel it will add to the quality of both the Fonda Speedway museum and Hall of Fame.”
