TURNING BACK THE CLOCK AT THE FONDA SPEEDWAY
 

By: Ron Szczerba

FONDA, NY – If you were a fan of the Fonda Speedway back in the day when the race cars used to pit in the infield you remember how exciting it was to watch your favorite drivers and crews work on their race cars and line them up on the infield pit road to go out for their racing events.

Starting on Saturday, July 4 Fonda Speedway promoter Matt DeLorenzo will turn back the clock and make that a reality again as race cars will again be pitting on the old infield “dragstrip”. Though it is not mandatory to do so at this time DeLorenzo hopes that it is a popular decision and that the fans will again have a chance to interact more with the drivers and the drivers will also be able to interact more with the fans by making this move.

“When I took over as the promoter of the “Track of Champions” many people were asking if this could be done,” DeLorenzo said. “With all of the other improvements that were needed and done to the facility I really didn’t have time to plan this properly. Recently John Lakata put a bug in my ear about it and said that he would help out with it so now that things have calmed down some with other things that needed to be done it is a good time to try it out.”

FONDA, NY - After the Pro Stock feature on Saturday, June 20th at the Fonda Speedway the engine in the winning car of Pete Broderson was protested by Nick Stone. The engine was removed at the track and impounded by the Fonda Speedway.

The engine was taken on Tuesday to Boyd's Motorworks to inspect for a lightweight crank, rods and pistons. A representative from both teams were present on Tuesday during the inspection process and it was found that the internal components are GM factory with stamps and seals in place. Both teams shook hands and Pete Broderson was declared the official winner of the Pro Stock feature.

The win for Broderson on June 20 was his fourth of the 2015 season and his third in a row after winning the feature event back on June 13 followed by a big win in the DIRTcar Pro Stock Series event on June 18.

Broderson also has two track championships in the pro stock division at Fonda back to back in 2012 and 2013.

On Saturday evening June 27 at the Fonda Speedway all divisions will be in action along with the Atlantic Coast Old Timers (ACOT). It is also Kids Club Pie the Pros Night where eight lucky Kids Club Members will get to throw pies at eight pre-selected drivers which were voted on by Kids Club Members. Two more bicycles will also be raffled off and it will also be Senior Citizens Night where all seniors age 62 and over will receive a $2.00 discount off of a General Admission ticket.
