By: Ron Szczerba

FONDA, NY – Rain began and ended the racing program at the Fonda Speedway on Saturday evening as it caused about an hour delay in the start of the racing program just after warmups and then ended the racing program five laps in to the modified feature event with Darwin Greene leading at that time. The remaining 25 laps of the modified feature along with the entire 20-lap 602 sportsman feature will now be held on Saturday, May 30 in addition to the regular racing program.

Features that were run on Saturday were the 20-lap pro stock feature event with Luke Horning taking home the victory while Steve Cosselman (street stock) and Chris Curtis (limited sportsman) were the other feature event winners.

In an attempt to get local schools involved in racing at the Fonda Speedway promoter Matt DeLorenzo invited the Northville Central School Falcons Marching Band to come in and do the National Anthem which they performed just before the pro stock heat races took to the track and they did a magnificent job in doing it.
