Fonda, NY – According to the Fonda Speedway record books, 2016 was the 65th consecutive championship season of racing at the historic Montgomery Fairgrounds facility. In the modified division Ronnie Johnson scored his second career track championship (2011, 2016) in the Jake and Nancy Spraker owned #1RJ Teo car after winning a track leading five feature races in 2016. Johnson is one of 23 different drivers in the 65 year history of the “Track of Champions” who has scored a track championship.

Following Johnson’s five feature win season were Bobby Varin and Jeremy Wilder who both had a total of three feature wins in 2016.

JIMMY PHELPS WINS SUPER DIRTCAR SERIES MODIFIED EVENT AT FONDA
 

By: Ron Szczerba

Fonda, NY – When the Super DIRTcar Series comes to town it brings with it a different type of atmosphere to the tracks that they visit which seems to attract fans to those locations. Whether it be the huge haulers that bring the race cars to the track, or the all-star drivers that follow the series, or both, fans flock to the track to see these events.

That was the case at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway on Saturday evening as the grandstands were full of fans and the pit area was full of race cars on a perfect fall day for racing. When the checkered flag flew to complete the 100-lap Super DIRTcar Series modified feature event, Jimmy Phelps added his name to the all-time win list at Fonda as he took home his first career win at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds track.

Other winner at Fonda on Saturday were Mark Mortensen (602 sportsman), Rob Yetman (DIRTcar pro stocks), Josh Coonradt (street stock), Ken Hollenback (cruisers), Davie Franek (Kramer Williamson Memorial Sprints), and Don Greco (vintage).
