Speedrome Action Packed Events for July
By: John Flock
half-way point for 2013 Chemung Speedrome season has
arrived. Car counts are growing; the point chases could
hardly be closer. Owner John White has scheduled some
exciting special events for the vacation month of July.
Three events will present a special attraction at each race
evening. Now for more good news! There is no increase in the
general admission prices for all of the July shows. If you
present your rain check from the previous show, adults and
seniors will receive a $2.00 discount.
This Friday, July 5th, the holiday race fans will witness the Atlantic
Coast Old Timers organization pay a visit to the banked
asphalt oval. On their last visit to the area, cars from the
1920ís through the 1970ís were seen by an appreciative
crowd. Along with the antique racers, a full card of NASCAR
racing will be presented. The NASCAR Sunoco Modifieds will
battle over a 40 lap distance. The full-bodied Super Stocks
will also vie for NASCAR points in their 25 lap test. The
new 4-Cylinder Stocks will test the skill of the youthful
drivers in a 20 lap feature event. INEX Legends (20 laps),
INEX Bandoleros (8 laps), and the dirt track Crate Sportsman
will fill out the nightís program.
On Friday, July 12th, Legends of Chemung Night will be presented. Adding
to spice of the Legends Night, the Midstate Vintage Stock
Car Club racers will take to Chemungís smooth oval with
their racers from the 1950ís to 1970ís. These racers are not
afraid to bang wheels and drive hard for victory. All the
NASCAR divisions will also be on hand for this special
night. The Sunoco Modifieds, Super Stocks (double point
night), 4-Cylinder Stocks, INEX Legends and Bandoleros, and
the dirt track Crate Sportsman divisions will all add to
your racing enjoyment.
Friday July 19th is a vacation night as competitors head for the Race of
Champions events in Oswego.
Chemung Speedrome racing will finish out the month of July in fine style
on Friday July 26th. On that special night, the United
States Auto Club presents the speedy Ford Focus Midgets. We
expect nearly twenty machines for this program. The USAC
racers are looking forward to the high speeds they should
achieve at Chemung. It will indeed be a full night of action
for your favorite drivers in the Sunoco Modifieds, Super
Stocks, 4-Cylinder Stocks, INEX Legends and Bandoleros, and
the dirt track Crate Sportsman.
