By: Ron Szczerba

Fonda, NY – On Friday evening of Mohawk Valley Weekend at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway one of the nicest guys in the sport Jeff Trombley scored a long overdue victory in the modified division ending almost a three year winless streak after his last win at the track was on 9/24/2011!

“We put a lot into this and don’t have the funding that we used to,” the driver of the Jumpin’ Jack’s Pro Speed sponsored #21J said of his crew. “I told my guys that depending on how we did on Friday and Saturday would dictate if we raced on Sunday or not and now I can’t really argue with them.”

Other winners on Friday evening at Fonda on opening day of Mohawk Valley Weekend were Tony Farone (sportsman), Randy Miller (street stock), Ken Hollenback (4-cylinder), and Steve Poirier (ESS Sprints).

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.”

Fonda, NY – Continuous light rain forced the cancelation of most of the Night of Features racing program at the Fonda Speedway on Saturday evening but before the cancellation Pete Broderson (pro stock), Johnny Young (street stock), and Art Clement (4-cylinder) took victories in feature events in their respective divisions.

With DIRT points ending on Labor Day and Fonda being closed until Saturday, September 13 because of the annual Fonda Fair, the cancellation of the remainder of the racing program saw the leaders in the point standings going into the Saturday evening’s Night of Features racing program being crowned the point champions in their respective divisions.
