By: Ron Szczerba

Fonda, NY – Three big days, three big races, and one huge season finale is the caption on the flyer which was put out for the 2014 Mohawk Valley Weekend at the Track of Champions Fonda Speedway which is set to take place on Friday, September 19 through Sunday, September 21. It will be the closing event for the 2014 season at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds facility and will complete promoter Matt DeLorenzo’s first year as promoter of the facility.

“It’s been challenging at times. It’s new to me. I’ve always been on the other side of the fence – the race car driver – and now I’m dealing with both sides of the fence,” DeLorenzo said in a recent DIRTcar press release about the event. “Now that I’m almost to the end of the season, I’ve got a rhythm going.”
