WEST, LINGO, ROBERTS AND STRADLEY ARE VICTORS AT GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

GEORGETOWN, DE (July 2, 2011) - Before a large crowd at the First State Firecracker, Randy West bested the field to win the URC Sprint Car feature at Georgetown Speedway. Donald Lingo was the victor in the Super Late Model race. The Bridgeport Modified contest was won by Ron Roberts with the Charger event going to Warren Stradley.

At the start of the 25-lap URC Sprint Car feature, polesitter Randy West rocketed out to the lead with Kramer Williamson, Robbie Stillwagon, Rory Janney and Ed Aiken in tow. With five laps completed, West had nearly a full straight away lead over the pack and was beginning to enter lap traffic. As West was slicing and dicing his way through slower moving cars, Stillwaggon motored by Williamson for the runner-up spot on lap 9. Two circuits later, Stillwagon slipped up the track in turn three and allowed Williamson to regain second with Janney climbing into third. A spin by Chris Weiss on lap 13 eliminated West’s big advantage. When action got back underway, West maintained his lead over Williamson, Janney, Josh Weller and Aiken. Two circuits later, the red flag came out after Aiken flipped in turn two after making contact with Tim Higgins. When the green flag waved again, West resumed his torrid pace and teadily built up another comfortable margin over his rivals. The last yellow flag of the race came out on lap 21 when Weller slid off of turn two and slowed while running in fourth place. On the final restart, West remained in charge. A little further back, Davey Sammons was making a late race surge as he migrated up to third on lap 22 using the high groove of the half-mile
dirt oval. As the checkered flag flew, West was in front for his first URC Sprint Car win of the year. Williamson held off the hard charging Sammons for second place. Fourth was taken by Janney with Becca Anderson taking home a fifth place finish. West, Williamson and Stillwagon were winners in the URC Sprint car heat races.

Donald Lingo grabbed the lead at the beginning of the 25-lap Super Late Model main event and was followed by Kenny Pettyjohn, Mark Pettyjohn, David Pettyjohn and Ricky Elliott. By the second revolution, David Pettyjohn had climbed past his brother Mark to ascend into third place. After David Pettyjohn went too high in turn three on lap 5, Mark Pettyjohn regained third with Elliott forging ahead into fourth. The first caution of the race occurred on lap 6 after a spin by Hal Browning with Elliott going pitside to replace a flat tire. After back to back caution periods on the seventh circuit, Lingo was still in control with Mark Pettyjohn shuffling up to second place. Elliott was knifing his way back to the front and took over third place with eleven laps scored. The final yellow flag period happened on lap 13 when Browning stopped in turn two. Lingo continued to hold the top spot when racing resumed with Elliott graduating to
the runner-up spot on lap 15. Three circuits later, Lingo had Elliott on his bumper. With less than five tours to go, Lingo was holding on to the lead with Elliott trying to use the high side. On the final lap, Lingo fended off another stiff challenge by Elliott to gain his first Georgetown Speedway victory in the Super Late Model division. With Elliott taking second, Mark Pettyjohn finished third and was followed by David Pettyjohn and Herb Tunis. Mark Pettyjohn and Elliott were victors in the Super Late Model qualifying events.

Veteran Ron Roberts took over the lead with two tours to go as he won the entertaining 25-lap Bridgeport Modified race. Corey Andersen became the leader at the onset of the affair with Scott Hitchens, Matt Budd, Ron Roberts and Jordan Watson in pursuit. With a long stretch of green flag racing and only nine laps remaining, Andersen successfully migrated through a wave of lap traffic with Watson edging into second and Roberts advancing to third. On lap 18, Andersen encountered some difficulty as he made contact with a slower car and allowed Watson to narrow the gap. On lap 21, Watson took over the lead from Anderson. On the next tour, Andersen briefly returned to the top only to see Watson return the favor when the lap as scored. On lap 23, Roberts motored by both Watson and Andersen to become the new leader. The yellow flag appeared on the white flag lap as Andersen’s strong ride ended as he stopped in turn four. On the last lap restart, Roberts was holding on to his lead with Watson, Chad James and Hitchens in tight quarters. With Roberts crossing the finish line first, James was able to gain second on the final lap with Hitchens edging up to third place. Watson and Budd completed the top five. Bridgeport Modified heats were won by Ryan Anderson and Watson.

Warren Stradley, the eleventh place starter in the 15-lap Charger race, took over the lead on lap 4 as he claimed his first win at Georgetown Speedway.

GRASSO IS SCORCHING HOT AT GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

GEORGETOWN, DE (May 30, 2011) - On Pizza King Night at Georgetown Speedway, JJ Grasso scorched the field to win the Rislone URC Sprint Series main. Brett Kressley was the victor in the Bridgeport Modified race. The Crate Late Model feature was won by Ricky Elliott. Josh Lovett took home the checkered flag in the Charger contest.

In the 25-lap main event for the Rislone URC Sprint Series, Robbie Stillwagon took the lead at the start with JJ Grasso and Jonathan Swanson on the prowl. Quickly, the top three began to breakaway from the pack and by lap 4, Grasso was inching in on the leader. With the frontrunners in lap traffic on lap 7, Grasso squeaked by Stillwagon for the lead just before the caution flag came out for the stopped car of Steve Whary. When action got back underway, Grasso kept his advantage and he began to fly away from the field with Stillwagon, Becca Anderson and Aiken in tight quarters. Aiken nudged his way up into third on lap 10 and Anderson dropped out of the race on the next lap with a steering malfunction. Back up top, Grasso nearly collided with a slower moving car just past the halfway point. In the second half of the race, Grasso set a blistering pace to win his second URC race of 2011. For his career, Grasso now has eighteen URC victories. Stillwagon finished second with Aiken taking third. Davie Franek and Randy West completed the top five. Stillwagon, Grasso and Swanson each won a Rislone URC Sprint Series heat race with the B-main going to Joe Zuczek.

Brett Kressley led every step of the way to capture his first ever Bridgeport Modified feature. In the 25-lap affair, Kressley took advantage of his pole starting position and rocketed out to the front with Brett Ballard in second. On lap 8, the front end of Kressley’s car became entangled on top of the rear of another car. Fortunately, Kressley’s car disengaged after a short ride and he survived a few restarts to gain the win. Dan Cogdill, Sr. wound up in second place with Scott Hitchens getting third. Jordan Watson and Ballard finished fourth and fifth respectively. The Bridgeport Modified heats were won by Ballard and Kressley.

Ricky Elliott inherited the lead from David Pettyjohn on the twelfth circuit and led the remaining distance in winning the 20-lap Crate Late Model Race. David Pettyjohn set the pace for the opening eleven tours until a mechanical issue forced him to the pits. Elliott survived lap traffic in the final quarter of the race to win the caution-free event. Mike Wharton was the runner-up. Tyler Reed, Mike Wilson and Joe Warren rounded out the top five finishers. Mike Wharton and David Pettyjohn were victors in the Crate Late Model heat races.

Josh Lovett scurried by Kyle Tubbs with two laps remaining to win the entertaining 15-lap race for the Chargers. Tyler White took third place with Guy Mitchell in fourth and Butch Hudson in fifth.

PAUCH, ELLIOTT AND WALL ARE SUPER AT GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

GEORGETOWN, DE (October 11, 2010) - On AC Delcos Super Sunday at Georgetown Speedway, Billy Pauch, Sr. was victorious in the Big Block  Modified feature. In the Super Late Model contest, Ricky Elliott took the checkered flag. Pat Wall won the Crate Modified race.

In the 25-lap Big Block Modified event, Matt Jester grabbed the early lead with Brian Kressley, Ron Roberts and Keith Hoffman in tow. Only one circuit was completed before the first caution flag was displayed for HJ Bunting. On the ensuing restart, Jester maintained his lead but Billy Pauch, Sr. soared to second place with Kressley, Roberts and Hoffman following the top two. Racing action came to a stop on lap 3 when Matt Hawkins went off the track on the backstretch. When the green flag waved again, Pauch Sr. blasted by Jester to take over the lead with Hoffman climbing up to third. After another caution period on lap 4 for Don Hallowell, the top two of Pauch, Sr. and Jester stayed intact with Roberts getting by Hoffman for third. Pauch, Sr. was beginning to inch away from the field when Brett Ballard spun in turn two on lap 9. Green flag racing resumed for only one lap as Ballard and Dutton collided in turn three. Again, Pauch, Sr. kept his lead over Jester on the restart as Hoffman regained third from Roberts. On lap 13, Jester was beginning to close in on the leader.  Two tours later, the yellow flag made another appearance as Jordan Watson spun in turn three. The top three of Pauch, Sr., Jester, Hoffman maintained their positions when racing resumed. The final caution flag appeared on lap 16 as Hallowells car stopped in turn four.

With Stillwagon stretching out his advantage in the early stages, Michael was advancing forward as he motored up to third on lap 4. By lap 6, Stillwagon was in lap traffic and had a full straightaway lead over his rivals. Two circuits later, Michael had migrated up to second place with Grasso now in third. On lap 9, Stillwagons big lead was evaporated as Scott Pursell stopped on the backstretch bringing out the caution.

With half of the  race completed, Michael held a comfortable advantage over Grasso, Stillwagon, Josh Weller and Hogue. Just as Michael was in the midst of heavy lap traffic, the yellow lights illuminated on lap 15 for a spinning Randy West. On the final restart of the race, Michael outgunned the field but Weller jumped up two positions to gain second place. Just after the restart, Grasso began to drop back through  the field with a power steering ailment. With five laps remaining, Michael had a large lead over a closing Weller and Stillwagon. When the checkered flag waved, it was tenth place starting Michael crossing the finish line first. Weller came home in second with Stillwagon taking third. Justin Collett took fourth while Hogue held on for fifth. Winners in the URC heat races were West, Stillwagon and Becca Anderson.

WELLER, PETTYJOHN, HOPKINS AND HILL ARE WINNERS AT GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

GEORGETOWN, DE (May 31, 2010) - Before a large crowd, Josh Weller won the Rislone URC Sprint Car feature. The Super Late Model race was won  by Mark Pettyjohn. Chuck Hopkins took the checkered flag in the Crate  Modified race with Matt Hill winning the Crate Late Model contest.

The original start of the 25-lap Rislone URC Sprint Car feature was  marred as Art Leidl took a tumble in turn one. On the next attempt,  Kevin Nouse made contact with another competitor and flipped wildly in the same turn. When the green flag waved again, Josh Weller took the lead with Kevin Darling, Davey Sammons and Curt Michael in the hunt. Only one lap of racing was completed as Tim Hogue spun in turn two. On the restart, Weller kept the lead and began to pull away from the  pack. Chris Coyle moved into contention and gained fourth on lap 10.  While running in second place, Darling spun on the backstretch on lap  11 and the caution flag was displayed. When action got back underway,  Weller kept his lead and once again pulled away from his rivals. By  lap 15, Weller was beginning to encounter lap traffic with Sammons  still in second place. Behind the top two, Trevor Lewis was continuing  his charge and motored into third place on lap 18. Weller kept firm  control of his lead in the final laps and charged to his third career  URC victory. Lewis passed Sammons on the final circuit to gain second.  Coyle and Michael completed the top five finishers. Winners in the URC   qualifying events were Weller, Darling and Sammons. Robbie Stillwagon was the victor in the B-Main race.

In the 25-lap Super Late Model race, Donald Lingo took the lead and was being pursued by Hal Browning and Mark Byram. A spin by David  Pettyjohn slowed down the action after only one tour of the track was  completed. After the restart, the top three maintained their position  but Mark Pettyjohn managed to migrate up to fourth place. Browning and  Byram became engaged in a multi-lap tussle for position. By lap 9,  Byram had climbed up to second over Browning. On lap 15, the yellow  lights were illuminated for David Pettyjohn’sslowing car.  Simultaneously, a terminal mechanical issue caused the lead car of  Donald Lingo to stop in turn three. With Byram now in front, he kept  his lead over Browning and Mark Pettyjohn as racing resumed. Another  caution period happened on lap 17 as Mike Parsons spun in turn three.  On the next restart, Mark Pettyjohn passed Browning to gain second and  set his sights on Byram. On lap 20, a flat on the ride of Herb Tunis  stopped the racing. When the green flag waved again, Mark Pettyjohn  grabbed the lead and Byram spun on the backstretch near the exit of  turn two. Mark Pettyjohn survived two additional restarts in the  final five circuits to claim the win. Byram, the heat race winner,  came back from his late race spin to finish in second place. Browning,  Kerry King and Parsons finished in order behind the top two.

Chuck Hopkins led every step of the way to grab the victory in the 20-lap Crate Modified feature. Sean Gunther finished in second place  with Neal Williams taking third. Jason Bishop and Ron Roberts filled  out the top five. Williams and Hopkins each grabbed a Crate Modified  heat race victory.

In the Crate Late Model race, Matt Hill was the winner after inheriting the lead from Bobby Watkins. Watkins, the pacesetter for a  majority of the race, had to retreat to the pits to repair a flat tire  during a late race restart. Clay Tatman, Mike Wharton, Watkins and Gus  Economides followed Hill across the finish line. Crate Late Model  qualifying races were won by Chris Hitchens and Hill.

CHESTER AND ELLIOTT COLLECT FEATURE WINS AT GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

GEORGETOWN, DE (October 11, 2009) - On a clear and crisp night, Jimmy  Chester came out on top in the Big Block Modified feature at  Georgetown Speedway. In the Super Late Model event, Ricky Elliott was  the victor. Eric Vent was the winner in the Mix and Match race for the  Crate Modifieds and Crate Late Models. The Little Lincoln feature was  won by Donald Robinson, Jr.

In the 25-lap Big Block Modified feature, Jeff Brown led the opening   circuit before Travis Hill became the new man on top of the field on  lap 2. Behind the top two runners, Chad James, Matt Jester and Jimmy  Chester were climbing toward the front. After moving into second on  lap 3, James, using the outside groove, swept by Hill for the lead on  lap 5. Lapped traffic was being encountered by James on lap 8 when the  caution flag waved for an accident involving Wade Hendrickson, Jamie  Mills, and Bobby Watkins. On the ensuing restart,  Hill was pushed back  to fourth place as Jester and Chester continued their pursuit of   James. The yellow lights lit the track on  the ninth tour when Jamie  Mills and Jordan Watson had simultaneous spins in opposite corners on  the track. Chester maneuvered past Jester after the green flag was  shown again. At the halfway point, Chester was applying heavy pressure  on James for the lead. After  cautions occurred on laps 18 and 20, a   second yellow flag occurred on lap 20 for a multi-car wreck. When the  green flag waved, James and Chester drove hard into turns one and turn  two with Chester emerging as the new leader down the backstretch and  Jester escalating up into second. Chester went on to lead the  remaining laps to score the win. Jester wound up in second with James  finishing in third. Hill,  making his Big Block Modified debut in a  Rusty Smith owned car, took home a fourth place finish. Fifth place  went to Ron Roberts. Watkins, Chester and James each captured a Big  Block Modified heat win with Steve Haggan taking the checkered flag in  the consolation race.

After two tries to start the 25-lap Super Late Model race were thwarted by cautions, Ricky Elliott, the polesitter, jumped out to the  lead on the third attempt with David Pettyjohn and Donald Lingo in  tow. Lingo took over the runner-up spot on lap 5. The top three  remained in order as the laps began to click off with Elliott  beginning to lap his competitors on the seventh circuit and creating a  big advantage  over the pack. Elliot's sizeable lead evaporated with   Mark Parson's spin on lap 16. When action got back underway, Elliott  kept his lead and again began to distance himself from his foes when a  few sparks began to appear from underneath his car with five laps remaining. With a mechanical issue slowing him down, Elliot's lead  over Lingo decreased to only one car length on lap 22. Elliott held   off a hard charging Lingo in the final circuits to grab the win. With  Lingo in second, Mark Pettyjohn finished in third after starting the  feature in the   twenty-first position. Fourth place went to David  Pettyjohn with Kenny Pettyjohn getting a fifth place finish. The Super  Late Model qualifying races were won by David Pettyjohn, Ray Davis, Jr. and Kenny Pettyjohn. Austin Hubbard was the victor in the  consolation race.

In the Mix and Match race for the Crate classes, Eric Vent, a Crate  Late Model racer, led from start to finish to win the caution plagued
20-lap feature event. Behind Vent, Tom Moore, Jr. was second with Chris Hitchens taking third. Completing the top five was Brett Ballard  and Joseph Tracy. Crate Modified heat winners were Dale Hawkins, Tim  Tanner, Jr. and Joe Tracy with Tim Trimble collecting the victory in  the consolation event. Chris Hitches, Brenty James and Joe Warren each  snared a win in the Crate Late Model heat races. Mike Williams  claimed the Crate Late Model consolation contest.

Donald Robinson, Jr. won the Little Lincoln contest after the top two  runners, Jamie Wagner and Bill Brittingham, tangled in the final turn  on the last lap.

MICHAEL, DAVID PETTYJOHN AND KORMANN RIDE TO WINS AT GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY

GEORGETOWN, DE (September 6, 2009) - A big crowd at Georgetown Speedway for the Lester Nailor Memorial sponsored by Taylor and Messick saw Curt Michael grab the win in the Rislone URC Sprint feature. In the Super Late Model event, David Pettyjohn was the  ictor. Eric Kormann took the checkered flag in the Mix and Match race for the Crate Modifieds and Crate Late Models.

The original start of the 25-lap Rislone URC Sprint Car race was plagued by a tangle between Tim Hogue and Becca Anderson. With the field reassembled, Nick Schlauch, Jr. shot out to the lead with Curt Michael, Kevin Nouse and Brett Schoenly in tow. The yellow flag came out on lap 2 as Kenny Meisner spun in turn one and Eddie Wagner stopped on the backstretch. When action got back underway, Michael got by Schlauch, Jr. in turn three to take the lead. Out in front of the field, Michael was pulling away from the pack until a caution flag  waved on lap 8 for Andy Best and Kyle Pruitt. On the ensuing restart, the red flag appeared as Brett Schoenly flipped in turn one. Following the cleanup, Michael got back on the gas and streaked away again. As Schlauch, Jr. and Nouse were engaged in a terrific mid-  ace battle for the second spot, JJ Grasso motored up to join them. The final caution  of the event came out on lap 13 for a spin by Midge Miller. Michael   sped away again on the restart. Grasso got by Nouse for third place on lap 17. With two laps to go, Michael began to hit lap traffic. With Michael not having a clear racetrack, Schlauch, Jr. and Grasso reeled in Michael. When the double checkered flags waved, it was Michael over Schlauch, Jr. and Grasso in a tight finish. The Rislone URC Heat races were won by Schlauch, Jr., Jonathan  Swanson, and Michael. Kenny Meisner won the B-Main.

Polesitter Kenny Pettyjohn streaked out to the early lead in the 25-lap Super Lat Model event with Donald Lingo and David Pettyjohn in pursuit. The top three runners broke away from the field early until the first caution of the event came out for debris on the track near the flagger's stand on lap 4. Green flag racing resumed but this only lasted for one circuit as Eddie Pettyjohn and Nick Davis both spun out. On the resumption of action, David Pettyjohn got by Donald Lingo to gain the runner-up spot. With the laps clicking off, Kenny Pettyjohn began to pull away from the field. As the crossed flags appeared marking the halfway point of the race, Kenny Pettyjohn had a comfortable five second lead. On lap 14, Kenny Pettyjohn spun in turn four and handed the lead over to David Pettyjohn. Surviving three more cautions and restarts, David Pettyjohn was able to outlast the field to collect the win. Behind him, Donald Lingo and Ray Jarvis waged a  war for second place during the final ten laps with Donald Lingo taking the spot. Behind the third place finishing Jarvis, Ross Robinson was fourth and Ray Davis, Jr. was fifth. Kenny Pettyjohn and David Pettyjohn were the heat winners in the Super Late Model class.

In the Mix and Match race for the Crate classes, Crate Modified racer Eric Kormann took back the lead on lap 7 from Jack Mullins, Jr. and won the special contest between Crate Modifieds and Crate Late Models. The next two finishers were Brad Trice and Neal Williams. Chris Hitchens and Michael White completed the top five. Crate Modified heat winners were Shawn Ward and White with John Curtis collecting the consolation event. Ryan Walls and Mullins each snared a win in the Crate Late Model heat races. Kelly Putz claimed the Crate Late Model consolation contest.

PAUCH SR. AND LATHROUM GRAB GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY FEATURES AS LAUBACH IS CROWNED GARDEN STATE CHAMP FOR 2008

GEORGETOWN, DE (November 22, 2008) – Billy Pauch Sr. drove the famed #126 Big Block Modified of Glenn Hyneman to victory in the 30-lap Garden State Dual Track Series finale at Georgetown Speedway. Rick Laubach from Hellertown, PA claimed the Garden State Dual Track Series championship. Jamie Lathroum took the checkered flag in the 30-lap Super Late Model Feature. John Stangle claimed the Crate Modified feature while Jack Mullins Jr. was the victor in the Crate Late  Model feature. The Little Lincoln main event was won by Mel Joseph Jr.

Jimmy Chester took the early lead of the 30-lap feature for the Big Block Modifieds with Richie Pratt Jr., Billy Pauch Jr., Ryan Godown, and Billy Pauch Sr. in early pursuit. Bryant Brown’s ride came to stop on the backstretch on lap 3 bringing out the first caution. Chester kept the lead on the restart with Chad James able to get by Godown and Pauch Sr. for fourth place.  Pratt Jr. was able to get by Chester for the lead on lap 9. One lap later, Jim Britt stopped near the flag stand drawing a yellow flag. When action resumed, Pauch Jr., Godown , Pauch Sr., and James were able to slip by Chester. James developed a flat tire and stopped on the backstretch on lap 13. On the restart, Pauch Sr. took third spot from Godown on lap 14. On the next lap,  Pauch Sr. shot pass his son and Pratt Jr. to take the lead. Pauch Jr. followed his father into second place. Pratt Jr. reassumed the runner-up spot six laps later. Pauch Sr. was able to hold off Pratt Jr. the rest of the way to collect the $3000 first place prize. Pratt Jr. came home in second place. Godown, Pauch Jr. and Danny Johnson completed the top five. Rick Laubach finished in sixth place and captured the Garden State Dual Track Series championship for 2008. Laubach won five of the eight races in the series. Pratt Jr., James, and Keith Hoffman won the heat races and Bill Klingmeyer was the victor in the  consolation event.

The initial start of the 30-lap Super Late Model feature was aborted as Ricky Elliot developed a flat tire after brushing the wall along the frontstretch. When flagger Gary Buzby waved the green flag again, Scott Haus took the early lead. The caution flag was out on lap 2 when Steve Axtell Jr. spun in turn four. When racing resumed, Mark Pettyjohn grabbed the lead from Haus and John Callaway motored into second place. A multi-car tangle on lap 3 slowed down the action and Pettyjohn held off Callaway for the lead with Jamie Lathroum taking third spot from Haus on the restart. On lap 6, Callaway took the lead from Pettyjohn and Lathroum moved into second place. As the leader, Callaway began to encounter lapped traffic starting on lap 10 until the caution waved on lap 14 for Ross Robinson. Callaway chose the outside lane on the restart and kept his lead briefly until Lathroum took the lead on lap 16. Also on lap 16, the yellow lights flickered again for Axtell Jr. Lathroum continued to lead the race as Pettyjohn moved back into second place on lap 18. Elliott continued his march to the front and took second place from Pettyjohn on lap 21. With Elliott directly behind him, Lathroum masterfully handled lapped traffic in the final three laps to gain his first Georgetown Speedway victory. Coming back from two visits to pit road, Elliott finished strongly in second place. Pettyjohn, Callaway and  fourteenth place starter Dan Stone filled out the top five. Super Late Model heat races were won by Haus, Axtell Jr. and Elliott.

In the 20-lap Crate Modified race, John Stangle led wire-to-wire to take home the $1000 check. Stangle started on the pole and fought off Jesse Hill in the final laps for the victory. Hill, Adam Jarrell, Neal Williams, and Mike White rounded out the top five finishers. Hill, White, Stangle, and Neal Williams won the Crate Modified qualifying events. Sean Gunther won the  consolation race.

Polesitter Jack Mullins Jr. led all 20 laps to win the Crate Late Model feature. Eleventh place starter Mike Williams came home in second place. Sparky White finished in third place after starting in eighteenth place. Herb Tunis and Chris Hitchens completed the top five.

GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY TO HOST THE ADVANCE AUTO PARTS SUPER DIRTCAR SERIES ON JULY 17
by Michael Wisniewski



GEORGETOWN, DE (June 13, 2008) - Since late August 2007, the Georgetown Speedway has sat idle, with its future in racing questionable at best. Jay James, owner of the Bridgeport Speedway and resident of nearby Laurel, DE, has taken over the fast 1/2 mile speedway. And now with the James family at the helm, the Georgetown Speedway will roar to life on Thursday, July 17 in a big way---by hosting a 75 lap Advance Auto Parts Super DIRTcar series race. This will be the second leg of the ‘Super Southern Swing’ as the first leg will take place at the Grandview Speedway on Wednesday, July 16.

Alan and Danny Johnson, Billy Decker, Dale Planck, Brett Hearn, Steve Paine, Pat O’Brien, Jimmy Phelps, Ryan Phelps, Matt Sheppard, Gary Tomkins, and young hotshoe Larry Wight are all expected to travel south to Georgetown, DE for the first ever Super DIRTcar series race at the speedway.

Big Block Modified Drivers from Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania are beginning to make plans for this must see event and hope to take home the checkered flag from their northern competitors.

Also, a second racing division will be added for this event and will be announced shortly. On July 17, Pit Gates at Georgetown Speedway will open at 4:00 PM, Grandstand Gates open at 5:00 PM, and the racing will being at 7:30 PM with time trials taking place at 7:00 PM.

Georgetown Speedway is a 1/2 mile dirt oval located on the northbound side of U.S. Route 113, just 35 miles south of Dover, Delaware, a 45-minute drive from Ocean City, and easily accessible from Washington DC, Baltimore, and Philadelphia.

but the bill was not paid causing someone to get credit for something

that was not done not to mention, left with a bill that I can't pay at this time. 

Very upsetting to back out of your word on something as this where you should

be proud to sponsor on an award especially getting the free press.

THE GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY AND PENINSULA OIL AND PROPANE BEAT THE WEATHER AND HAD A GREAT NIGHT OF ACTION!


By Wade Perdue Georgetown, DE... The weather didn't look good as threatening sky's where all around the Georgetown Speedway. In fact just before intermission the clouds opened up and a brief shower rolled through. All it did was cool off the hot of the summer, and make the clay on the big ½ mile even faster, giving the fans one heck of a show.

The first feature of the night was the Georgetown Vintage club for their ten lap feature. Rick Loveland lead the field to the green, but it wasn't long before Mark Williams would take the lead on lap one. Then the 11 of Mel Joseph Jr, Morris Tucker and last weeks feature winner CJ Schirmer marched their way to the front to make it a four car battle. CJ Schirmer would quickly take the lead and left the rest of the field to battle for second. Schirmer in the number 23 would take the win again followed by Morris Tucker in second.  Mel Joseph in the Bert Ritter 11 finishes in third. Mark Williams and Ronald Ford rounded out the top five.

 

Georgetown Vintage Club Finish= 1). 23 CJ Schirmer 2). 8 Morris Tucker 3). 11 Mel Joseph Jr. 4). 28 Mark Williams 5). 65 Ronald Ford 6). 19 Rick Loveland 7). 19 Herbie Hobbs 8). 23 John Irwin 9). 141 Jim Reed 10). 44 James Laplant.

The Super Late Models hit the speedway for their 20 lap feature on Peninsula Oil and Propane night. All the drivers had some extra incentive this week as a $200 bounty was put on new points leader Ricky Elliott. Pole sitter Rob Schirmer took the lead from the start followed closely by Mark Pettyjohn. The caution would come out as the PJ1 of Pettyjohn spins all by himself in turns one and two. That put Schirmer still in the lead but the 45 of Ricky Elliott worked his way up to second. It wasn't long before Elliott would take the lead on the restart and never look back collecting the bonus for himself and $1800 in winnings. From what I have heard the bounty will grow for the Super Lates in two weeks! New comer to the Georgetown Speedway David Williams finished in the second spot Kenny Pettyjohn finishes in third. Donald Lingo Jr. ,and Rob Schirmer rounded out the top five.

 

Super Late Model Finish= 1). 45 Ricky Elliott 2). 25W David Williams 3). 91 Kenny Pettyjohn 4). 22A Donald Lingo, Jr. 5). 118 Rob Schirmer 6). 7 Darryl Hills 7). 6 Jamie Lathroum 8). 12K Gary Simpson 9). PJ1 Mark Pettyjohn 10). 38 Bob Geiger 11). 99L Dale Lingo IV

The Crate Modifieds made their way out on the big ½ mile for fifteen laps of action. Mike White lead the 17 car field to the green and jumped out in front for a while. John Curtis was making a charge on White till he drove to low down in turn one and clipped the huge tractor tires on the bottom of the track, ripping the left front completely off the car ending his night on the hook. The restart showed Mike White still as the leader but coming all the way from 10th starting spot was the 30 of Jordon Watson. Watson would shot by White coming off of turn two, and pull away by almost a full straightaway winning on Peninsula Oil and Propane night. Mike White would finish second Andy Hammond and Justin Griffith came off of turn 4 in a dead heat and at the stripe the front bumpers were even and they tie for third. Tim Trimble rounded out the top five.

 

Crate Modified Finish= 1). 30 Jordon Watson 2). 21M Mike White 3). 14K Andy Hammond 3). 91 Justin Griffith 5). 21 Tim Trimble 6). 39 Joseph Watson 7). 55 Brian Robbins 8). 61 Mike Hough 9). 46 Jerry Carter 10). 31 Casey Lynch 11). 10 Bobby Balentine 12). 42 Adam Jarrell 13). 18 Jeff Marker 14). 1X Dan Riedy 15). 6 Scott Calhoun 16). 17 John Curtis 17). 9 Jeff Brown

The last feature of the night hit the speedway on Peninsula Oil and Propane night. The Crate Late Models scheduled for 15 laps of action with Eddie Williams showing the way. Right at the drop of the green the 44 of Tyler Reed jumped out in front and pulled away with lots of hard racing behind him. Dan Feidler and Billy Mellon put on a good show for about 5 laps before the 88 of Eddie Williams would spin cause a big pile up in turn four as caution flew. The field would line back up Reed leading and Sparky White in his first night out in the number 3 made his way up in the top five from 15th starting position. Tyler Reed was the class of the field as he wins ,with John Calloway second Ross Robinson third. Ryan Walls and Sparky White rounded out the top five.

 

Crate Late Model Finish= 1). 44 Tyler Reed 2). 95 Jon Callaway 3). 7 Ross Robinson 4). 14W Ryan Walls 5). 3 Sparky White 6). 12 Mike Wilson 7). 59 Kelly Putz 8). 56 Billy Mellon 9). V75 Erik McKinney 10). 35 Mike Parsons 11). 55 Hal Browning 12). 14M Mike Williams 13). 23 Travis Justice 14). 13M JT McLanigan 15). 37 Dan Feidler 16). 88 Eddie Williams 17). 26 Mark Williams 18). 20 Stacie Warrington 19). 82M Chris McLanigan 20). 32 Shane Sockriter 21). 5 Skip Syester 22). 09 Brent James DNS

It was a Memorial night for The Georgetown Speedway and the American Cancer Society!

8/3/07


By Wade Perdue Georgetown, DE.... The Ritter family could not have of thought of a better way to honor him than to race, and race they did. It was a very hot evening in Georgetown with temperatures in the 90's,but it didn't stop the fans, as the stands were full and so were the pits. It was almost like he was there. Just when the cars entered the speedway the wind picked up a little, cooling it off about ten degrees. We think it was him, making just a little cooler so we could enjoy a full night of action on the big half mile. The Georgetown Speedway and The American Cancer Society presented The First Annual "Race For A Cure" in honor of one of our own-- Bert Ritter.


The first of five features rolled out onto the speedway. The newly formed Georgetown Vintage club lined up for 10 laps of action. Leading the field around in the number 11 was Mel Joseph Jr. The number 11 has been owned by the Ritter family since the 50's and is all original with exception of the motor. The green flag flew with Joseph taking the early lead followed closely behind by Mark Williams, CJ Schirmer, and Morris Tucker. All four cars were fighting for the lead when the caution flew. The front pack was feeling very racy and did not adhere to the caution and tangled causing damage to the 11 of Joseph ending his night. Then it was Schirmer as he took the lead and never looked back, taking the checkered flag. A close battle for second as Williams and Tucker drove side by side coming off of four, as they crossed the line it was Mark Williams for second and Morris Tucker finished third. Rick Loveland and Herbie Hobbs rounded out the top five.


Georgetown Vintage Club Finish= 1). 23 CJ Schirmer 2). 28 Mark Williams 3). 8 Morris Tucker 4). 19 Rick Loveland 5). 19 Herbie Hobbs 6). 44 James LaPlant 7). 14A Josh Shockley 8). 141 Jim Reed 9). 11 Mel Joseph Jr. 10). 191 Kenny Archer DNS

The second Feature on tap for the evening was the Super Late Models for their 20 lap feature. Dale Lingo in the 99L lead the 15 car field to the green followed by Donald Lingo in the 22A. Close action involving Both the Lingo's the Pettyjohn, Kenny and Mark, and the 45 of Ricky Elliott. Caution came out quickly as the front runners were racing very close and it appeared that the 91 of Kenny Pettyjohn got into the back of the PJ1 of Mark Pettyjohn, causing him to spin. The green flag was dropped once again with Donald Lingo leading, but a hard charging Ricky Elliott was knocking on the door and took the lead from Lingo winning the race. Kenny Pettyjohn finished second followed by Donald Lingo, Jamie Lathroum and Mark Pettyjohn battled back to finish 5th.
 

Super Late Model Finish= 1). 45 Ricky Elliott 2). 91 Kenny Pettyjohn 3). 22A Donald Lingo 4). 6 Jamie Lathroum 5). PJ1 Mark Pettyjohn 6). 84 Ray Davis Jr. 7). 80 David Pettyjohn 8). 118 Rob Schirmer 9). 99L Dale Lingo 10). 119R Rob Ormsbee 11). 38 Bob Geiger 12). 10 Ryan Hackett 13). K&B Kerry King 14). 73 Al Cheney 15). 19 Brian Whaley DNS

The Big Block Modifieds came out for their 20 lap feature on Bert Ritter Memorial night with the 5 of Don Hallowell starting on the pole. The race was pretty clean between the front runners Hallowell, and the 26 of Ryan Godown. Godown took the lead just after half way when a vicious crash involving one of the tires in turn one and Jimmy Horton IV. The 43 of Horton clipped one of the big tractor tires on the inside of the speedway. These tires are to keep the drivers from going to low in the corner and chopping the corner off. Horton's car jumped high into the air as the right front tire went underneath, the 43 launching him several feet landing directly down on the nose of the car once again and turning over landing on his wheels. Horton was a little shaken as you may expect but otherwise ok. With only a few laps remaining Ryan Godown had a commanding lead as the 85 of Wade Hendrickson tried to reel him in. Hendrickson runs out of time and Ryan Godown wins his second of the year at Georgetown and his second in a row. Wade Hendrickson finished second with Jamie Mills third. Duane Rust and Jason Daliessio make up the top five.
Big Block Modified Finish= 1). 26 Ryan Godown 2). 85 Wade Hendrickson 3). 30 Jamie Mills 4). 96 Duane Rust 5). 9D Jason Daliessio 6). 18 LZ Conuver 7). 5 Don Hallowell 8). 43 Jimmy Horton IV 9). 101 Colby Steele 10). 83 Dale Hawkins 11). 8M Norman Short DQ 12). 27 Chad James DNS

The Crate Late Models came out onto the big half mile for their 15 lap main event. The V75 of Eric McKinney showed the way and had no problems holding off the 24 car field to win the Crate Late Model Feature. The cautions were plenty however, just past half way the caution flew for a spin in turn four. Nick Davis got sideways and was sitting in the middle of the turn when hard contact between Davis and the 12K of Kevin Scott Jr. Scott appeared to have no where to go hitting the 92 hard ending both drivers night. During the same caution the 63 of John Imler went off the top of the backstretch and flips after hitting the dirt embankment doing extensive damage to his car. All drivers in both wrecks were ok. The rest of the race was dominated by Eric McKinney as he wins, followed by the 14W of Ryan Walls in second. Tyler Reed, Ross Robinson and John Calloway round out the top five.
 

Crate Latemodel Finish= 1). V75 Eric McKinney 2). 14W Ryan Walls 3). 44 Tyler Reed 4). 7 Ross Robinson 5). 95 John Calloway 6). 55 Hal Browning 7). M14 Mike Williams 8). 12 Mike Wilson 9). 37 Dan Fiedler 10). 26 Mark Williams 11). 82M Chris McLanigan 12). 23 Travis Justice 13). 86 Eric Vent 14). 20 Stacie Warrington 15). 56 Billy Mellon 16). 59 Kelly Putz 17). 5 Skip Syester 18). 13 JT McLanigan 19). 92 Nick Davis 20). 12K Kevin Scott 21). 63 John Imler 22). 2 Jeff Keller 23). 141 Alan Reed

The Crate Modifieds came out for the last feature of the evening. Grant Ireland lead the 19 car field to the green and it wasn't long before the 9 of Jeff Brown would take control as he passed both Ireland and Joseph Watson coming off of turn two on lap one and pulled away by 5 car lengths going down the back straightaway. It looked like Brown was going to be unbeatable pulling a full straightaway from second place. Just past half way Browns car started to fade all of a sudden as he started slipping back through the field giving the lead to Joseph Watson. Watson lead the rest of the laps taking the win. After the checkered flew the 16 of Ted Reynolds blew of the top hose on the radiator on his machine. Reynolds suffered minor steam burns and was transported to the hospital for a checkup. The 31 of Casey Lynch finished second Jordon Watson finished third from his 10th starting position. Justin Griffith and John Lynch rounded out the top five.
 

Crate Modified Finish= 1). 39 Joseph Watson 2).31 Casey Lynch 3). 30 Jordon Watson 4). 91 Justin Griffith 5). 79 John Wynn 6). 21 Tim Trimble 7). 38 Matt Hawkins 8). 21M Mike White 9). 44 Grant Ireland 10). 57C Tom Curtis 11). 14K Andy Hammond 12). 29 Billy Carr 13). 16 Ted Reynolds 14). 6 Scott Calhoun 15). 18 Jeff Marker 16). 9 Jeff Brown 17). 65 Brandon Blades 18). 1A Andy Hitchens 19). 46 Jerry Carter

Georgetown Speedway
142 Broadkill Road
Milton, DE 19968


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:


GEORGETOWN, DE-Like race car rusting in someone’s yard for 10-years Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, DE is in need of repairs. Since  reopening last season some needed repairs have been completed, others  haven’t. Most importantly the track’s electrical system is showing  signs of age and lack of upkeep. Over the past month wiring problems  have caused short blackouts.

“It has been frustrating over the past month or so to have the lights  go out during the race evening,” admitted track spokesperson David  Brown. “Fans, racers and crew members have been very understanding,  but we owe it to them to provide the best night of racing possible and  feel these repairs must be completed to our satisfaction before we race  again,” Brown added.

Speedway staff worked all week trying to correct these wiring problems.  Unfortunately the electrical problems have not been repaired forcing  the speedway’s Board of Investors to cancel racing for the next two  Friday nights July 20th and 27th. “We apologize to our fans and race  teams for having to cancel those shows,” Brown stated adding, “The  track sat idle for nearly 10- ears before we started racing again in  2006. The track saw very little maintenance during that 10-year period  and things like the lights and wiring are now showing signs of failure  following that long period of sitting idle.”

When racing resumes August 3rd a grand event will be added to the  schedule. In memory of longtime speedway supporter Bert Ritter, who  recently lost a battle with cancer, a memorial event benefiting the  American Cancer Society Walk for a Cure will be held that night.  Feature racing that evening will include Big Block Modifieds, Super  Late Models, Crate Modified and Crate Late Models. The popular   Georgetown Vintage Racing Club will also join the August 3rd show and  kids will have a chance to win prizes including a chance to win a ride  in the Georgetown Speedway pace car leading feature fields to the green   flag. Additional news about this huge night of racing will be  announced as soon as it’s finalized.

The speedway’s full schedule is online at www.georgetownspeedway.com.  Racing will continue on Friday nights through September. Additional special events will be announced soon. Georgetown Speedway is located  near all Maryland and Delaware beaches so fans can enjoy great Friday night racing then spend the rest of the weekend at the beautiful  Delmarva shore. For more information call the speedway office at 302.684.3197.

Editor Correction


It was reported erroneously in last week local editions that Georgetown Speedway had worked out differences with sprint car racing and that the events were scheduled for August 3rd, November 2nd. etc. This release was incorrect and not sent out by Georgetown Speedway Management. Georgetown Speedway will not be running Sprint car races during 2007. If your paper included this release last week please print a correction.



For Immediate Release


Georgetown Speedway Reopens After Honoring a Great Friend

Georgetown Speedway will reopen July 20th after leaving the facility silent on July 13th in honor of long-time race supporter, car owner and former driver, Bert Ritter of Harbeson. Mr. Ritter passed away July 11th after a lengthy illness.

Georgetown Speedway will reopen Friday, July 20th with the P.O.D.S. sponsored event featuring Big Block Modifieds, Crate Late Models, Crate Modifieds, and Little Lincolns. The Eastern Motorsports Museum will also be on hand with restored racing cars from the 1930-1940 era on display. Children will be included in the event with draws for free teeshirts and pace car rides to the lucky winners.

Georgetown Speedway is finalizing details for a Bert Ritter Memorial Race scheduled for August 3rd. The event will serve double duty to remember Mr. Ritter and will be a benefit for the American Cancer Society Walk for a Cure. Many of Ritter’s former racing associates including Freddy Brightbill have been invited to share in the night’s event.

Georgetown Speedway is a half mile dirt Speedway located one mile South of Georgetown on Rt 113, built in the late 1940’s by the late Melvin L. Joseph. The Speedway features Big Block Modifieds, Super Late Models, Crate Modifieds, and Crate Late Models regularly.

“Elliott Makes Quick Work of Georgetown Late Model Field”


By Doug Watson
Georgetown Delaware, Seaford Delaware’s Ricky Elliott once again stood in the Georgetown Speedway victory lane as he scored a thrilling win in the divisions 20-lap feature last Friday night.
One-time Georgetown late model feature winner Kenny Pettyjohn blasted from the pole to take the early race lead. As Pettyjohn led effortlessly through the first half of the event, tenth starting Ricky Elliott was making his presence known. Elliott worked his way into second by the 5th lap and began closing in on leader Pettyjohn. Once Elliott caught Pettyjohn, the race was far from over.
The duo would battle side by side for several laps, keeping the large Georgetown crowd on their feet. Unfortunately Pettyjohn’s Mid-Coastal Siding Rocket pulled up lame on the 18th circuit with mechanical problems handing the lead to Elliott. That was all Elliott needed as he scampered away to collect his third Georgetown late model win of the season. Pettyjohn’s brilliant run ended with an eighth place finish. “That was a real bad deal for Kenny (Pettyjohn) I hated to see him break like that.” Were the words from Elliott as he stood in Georgetown’s victory lane. “The track was in great shape tonight and the top was definitely the fastest way around, but I needed the lapped cars if I was going to get Kenny.”
Ray Davis Jr. would come home second, Mary Pettyjohn was third, David Pettyjohn, after an early race spin, rebounded for fourth and Rob Schirmer completed the top-five.
Pit Notes,
Heats for the season-low 12 car field went to Ricky Elliott and Kenny Pettyjohn. The third place Effort by Mark Pettyjohn was only his second top-five of the season. Track conditions were superb as the dust-free surface was smooth and very racy offering the competitors multiple lanes for racing.

Lingo Injured in Bizarre Last Lap Crash at Georgetown


By Doug Watson
As Georgetown late model winner Ricky Elliott was taking the checkered flag in the divisions 20-lap main a grinding front stretch crash marred the conclusion of the event. Donald Lingo Jr. and Ray Davis Jr. had been waging a fierce battle for second. As the pair raced off the fourth turn toward the checkered flag the lapped car of Bobby Williamson, who was at least three laps off the pace, was in the immediate path of the oncoming racers. Davis went high and Lingo went low with Lingo making contact with the Williamson machine sending Lingo hard into the front stretch retaining wall at full speed.
After the dust had settled, Davis avoided the incident and went on to finish second but Lingo was not as fortunate. Immediately the red flag was displayed as Lingo was slow to climb from his destroyed #22A as it sat on the home stretch. The Georgetown medical crew was quickly on the scene and discovered that Lingo had a pretty nasty wrist injury. As the demolished #22A was towed to the pit area I had a chance to catch up with Lingo and get his thoughts on the incident.
“That Guy (Bobby Williamson) shouldn’t have been there.” Stated a very somber and shaken Lingo. “ I can understand a guy trying to learn, but he’s been around for a long time and the end result is a brand new car is destroyed.” So what exactly is Georgetown’s lapped car policy? “ I’m not sure Lingo added. “Every time I got near him I don’t think he knew where he was going! He shouldn’t have been out there.” “We started dead last and had a shot at a good finish, but I really feel bad for my car owners Alex and Theresa Beaumont they have a lot of money in this deal, and now it’s pretty torn-up.”
Car owner Alex Beaumont was visibly upset after the incident as well. “ I don’t mind guy’s like that starting races, but when their more than two laps down it’s just not their night and they need to get off the track. This is a complete disgrace because this wreck is going to cost me at least $10,000 because the car is just about totaled and the guy who caused us to wreck doesn’t have half that much in his entire car!

Georgetown, De---- Georgetown Speedway along with Grotto Pizza held the Firecracker 40 Friday night. A packed house off fans cheered as the Big Block Modifieds rolled off the grid. John Keller’s 54x lead the field to the start. Lap one saw the 26 of Ryan Godown who started third, jump into the lead, but it wouldn’t hold. The field was immediately put under caution as Don Hallowell and Dale Hawkins getting together both spin, and the lights on the back straight away went dark causing a small fire on the ground. Safety crews from Station 77 of the Georgetown Fire Co. responded to scene and quickly doused the flames. Track officials worked fast to repair the lights ,and the action continued.

The restart and the field looked like this: Kenny Pettyjohn the leader; followed by Rob Schirmer; the 84 of Ray Davis, Jr; Mark Pettyjohn; and Ricky Elliott already up to the fifth spot after starting deep in the field.

Pauch Cruises To First Georgetown Win Of 2007



Georgetown, DE ….. Billy Pauch raced to his first Big Block Modified feature win of 2007 on Friday night at the Georgetown Speedway. Pauch led the final twenty-one laps of the 25 lap main to seal the victory over Ryan Godown. In other action Jon Calloway scored his second win of the year in the 20 lap Crate Late Model feature. Joseph Watson also won his second 20 lap feature of the year in Crate Modified action. The Little Lincoln 10 lap feature was won by Donald Robinson Jr..

Ryan Godown of Ringoes, NJ led sixteen Big Block Modifieds to the green flag and searching for his second win of the year. Jamie Mills was trying to find a way around Godown but Dale Hawkins spun to bring out the only caution of the event.

When the racing resumed moments later, Pauch worked by Mills and then squeezed by Godown just one circuit later. It would be the Billy Pauch show from that period on as he raced to a comfortable victory in the Will Brown’s Truck Repair and Kool Ice Seafood sponsored ride. Godown took second while Kenny Brightbill raced to a distant third place showing. Jamie Mills slipped to the fourth position while Wade Hendrickson moved up from his tenth starting position to round out the top five.

“I thought we were in trouble with Godown starting up front,” said Pauch during a post race interview. Pauch went on to finish saying, “But we managed get by him pretty easily, which was surprising, and drove to the win.”

Ryan Walls got the jump on the green flag that began the 20 lap Crate Late Model main event. Walls was leading but spun on the second lap, causing a seven car pile-up resulting in damage to Kelly Putz, Jon Calloway, Eddie Williams, Bobby Watkins, and Dan Fiedler, and himself.

Ray Davis Jr. assumed the lead and was immediately challenged by Mike Wharton and Ross Robinson. Four more cautions over the next four laps allowed Calloway to work back through the field and joined in on the challenge for the top spot.

Robinson moved to the front of the field and found Calloway knocking on the door. The two raced side by side over the final five laps with Robinson always able to win the race back to the line.

The final lap would be a bit different though as Calloway took the lead off of turn two of the final circuit. Robinson tried one final time in turns three and four, pulling alongside in the middle of the corner. Robinson’s move proved to be too aggressive as he spun in front of the remaining field. Everyone managed to work by Robinson as Calloway heading to the checkered flag.

Calloway, from Harrington, DE, drove the Calloway Furniture sponsored machine to his second win of the year. Ray Davis Jr. took runner-up honors with Wharton settling for third. Mike Wilson took fourth place while Fiedler brought his heavily damaged racer home to a fifth place finish.

The Watson brothers have combined for four wins in the nine Crate Modified races held to date. Jordan and Joseph Watson stole the show on Friday night as the two swapped the lead on three occasions through several caution flags. In the end it would be Joseph Watson racing away to a easy win over brother Jordan. Mike White started tenth but took third place. Chuck Tucker and Jeff Brown rounded out the top five.

Elliott Scores Georgetown Checkers


Georgetown, DE ….. Ricky Elliott of Seaford, DE led the final sixteen laps of the Super Late Model twenty-five lap contest on Friday night to score his second Georgetown victory of the year. Elliott, forced to start tenth after a poor pill draw, worked through traffic like a knife through butter and raced to a comfortable win over Donald Lingo Jr..

Ross Robinson of Georgetown collected his sixth 20 lap Crate Late Model victory of the year in a race that saw just three caution flags. Mike White of Laurel, DE won his first Crate Modified twenty lap feature of the year while CJ Schirmer won the ten lap Georgetown Vintage Club event.

Donald Lingo Jr., piloting the Alex Beumont owned 22a in 2007, led the nineteen car Super Late Model field to the green flag. Austin Hubbard quickly jumped into the second position and began looking for ways to get around the race leader. The two would battle for the top spot while Elliott began picking his way through the field.

Ricky Elliott slipped under Hubbard for second after eight circuits and then went right to work on Lingo. Lingo bobbled in turn two on the ninth lap and that was all Elliott needed as the “Rocket” raced away to victory.

Hubbard was trying to save third when he had contact with David Pettyjohn as the two raced side by side. Hubbard developed a flat tire on the sixteenth lap to bring out just the second of three cautions. Hubbard went to the pits and left Elliott, Lingo, and David Pettyjohn to fight it out.

A lap eighteen caution involving Vic Thomas and Rob Schirmer slowed the field once more and gave Lingo and David Pettyjohn one last shot at the leader. When the green dropped Elliott was up to the challenge and raced away to a two second victory.

“This new clay held up nicely on the track and made this track even faster,” proclaimed Elliott in victory lane. Elliot went on to add that, “I bet we were going at least 10 miles per hour faster this week than two weeks ago when we were here.”

Lingo held on a second place showing, his best finish of the year. David Pettyjohn worked up from his eighth starting position to take third. Kenny Pettyjohn rebounded from his lap one accident that sent him to the rear to take fourth. Dale Lingo completed the top five.

Jamie Lathroum took sixth place honors while Mark Pettyjohn settled for seventh. Ray Dais Jr., Ray Kale Jr., and Schirmer rounded out the top ten.

Jon Calloway bypassed pole sitter Joe Warren on the start of the twenty lap Crate Late Model feature event. Calloway looked like he had the car to beat as he paced the eighteen car field over the first thirteen circuits. Calloway found Ryan Walls to be his stiffest competition in the early going but Ross Robinson passed both of them in turns one and two and raced away to lead the fourteenth lap.

Robinson never looked back and ran away to an emotional victory in which he dedicated to his uncle that passed away earlier in the week. Calloway held off Walls to take second while Walls settled back in third. Tyler Reed got by Mike Wharton on lap nine but could never muster a challenge to Walls for position. Staci Warrington kept busy during the twenty lap event as she moved up from her last starting spot to round out the top five.

Jeff Brown led the twenty one starters to the green flag to begin the twenty lap Crate Modified main event. Brown was up to the challenges from Andy Hammond over the first eight laps as the one time feature winner looked for ways around the leader. Hammond looked inside and out but could never get by Brown.

Mike White started ninth and made his way to third by lap eight and then took second just two circuits later. White would hound Brown over the next three laps before finally getting by on the outside to lead lap fourteen. White never looked back as he raced to his first career Crate Modified victory.

Brown held off John Curtis for second with Curtis settling for third. Joseph Watson took fourth while Casey Lynch posted his finish of the year with a fifth. Hammond slipped to sixth after racing for the lead during the early part of the race.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night June 15 featuring the Big Block Modifieds. Crate Late Models and Crate Modifieds will also be on the racing schedule. Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7 pm, and racing underway at 7:40 pm. For more information, visit www.georgetownspeedway.com  or call (302) 856-7415.

Hendrickson Returns To The Georgetown Winners Circle



Georgetown, DE ….. (6/8/07) Wade Hendrickson of Lawrenceville, NJ led the final twenty laps of the twenty-five lap Big Block Modified feature to score his third win of the year at the Georgetown Speedway. Hendrickson held off a hard charging Billy Pauch, beating him to the stripe by six car lengths. Other winners included Ross Robinson of Georgetown, DE capturing his fifth Crate Late Model feature of the year and Jordan Watson of Milford, DE taking home his third Crate Modified victory.

Scott VanGorder led the seventeen Big Blocks to the green flag but Brian Godown jumped to the outside from his third starting position in turn one to take the top spot. VanGorder tucked in line but was quickly challenged by Hendrickson. The only caution of the event slowed that battle when Jimmy Chester spun in front of Judd Mills and Dale Hawkins on the third circuit. Hawkins was able to return while Chester and Mills retired to the pits.

Brian Godown took the green flag to resume the action while Hendrickson looked for ways around VanGorder. It didn’t take Hendrickson long as he shot to the inside of VanGorder on lap four and then moved in to challenge for the lead. Godown was up for the challenge for one lap but it would Hendrickson racing by to lead the sixth lap.

Billy Pauch started the feature in fifth and quickly worked his way through the field to challenge for the second spot. Pauch finally worked by the speedy Godown on the ninth lap, leaving Godown to battle with the ninth place starter Kenny Brightbill and tenth place starter Ryan Godown. Both tag teamed Brian on the fifteenth lap with Ryan taking third and Brightbill fourth.

Hendrickson held a straight away advantage at one point but Pauch could only get to the rear bumper in the final five laps. Hendrickson was up to the challenge and held on for the six car length victory while driving the Art Collins Trucking sponsored Teo Fab car.

“Man I love this place,” proclaimed race winner Hendrickson in victory lane. Hendrickson added, “my guys have this car dialed in here and I can’t thank them enough. The track was different tonight, a little slicked over, but it sure was racy.”

Pauch easily took second while Ryan Godown held on for third. Brightbill held off the challenges of Jamie Mills to take fourth while Mills rounded out the top five. Brian Godown took sixth while VanGorder, Brian Kressley, Mark Byram, and Chad James rounded out the top ten. Heats were won by Pauch and Ryan Godown.

Travis Justice led the twenty car Crate Late Model field to begin the twenty lap feature event. An accident on the initial lap was just one of three cautions that fell in the event and Justice got a second opportunity for a better start. The green flag fell a second time and Justice raced into one with Ryan Walls working on the rear bumper.

Walls worked by and appeared to be on his way to victory after opening up a comfortable margin. A caution on lap eight is not what Walls was looking for as tenth place starter and three time race winner Ross Robinson had moved to second.
 

When the green fell again, Walls led the next two circuits but the Grotto's Pizza entry for Robinson was just too much as he worked to the inside to take away the lead. Robinson never looked back as he won his fifth Crate Late Model feature of the year. Walls settled for second place in the event. Justice held off the many challenges of Jon Callaway to take third while Callaway ran fourth. Mike Parsons posted his best finish of the year with a fifth. Heats were won by Eddie Corbin and Bobby Watkins.

The Crate Modifieds started the race with sixteen of the eighteen entries taking the green flag. Six cautions over the first eight laps eliminated all but nine cars and made for a great race over the final twelve laps.

Jordan Watson led through the caution filled period of the event but gave way to Tim Trimble on lap eight. Trimble settled down in front for a lap but Watson was not ready to relinquish the lead. The two had a comfortable advantage over the rest of the field as they battled for the lead. Watson led the tenth lap and never looked back, despite the efforts of Trimble. Watson collected his third win of the year while Trimble took second, his seventh top five finish of the year.

Justin Griffith took third place honors with Jerry Carter taking fourth. Randy Hill crossed the stripe in fifth but came up light at the scales, handing the fifth position to John Curtis. Trimble and Watson won the qualifying heat races.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night June 15 with the Super Late Models, Crate Modifieds, and Crate Late Models. Gates will open at 5 pm with hot laps scheduled to get underway at 7 pm. Qualifying heats will begin to set the feature line-ups at 7:35.

Smith & Michael Enter Georgetown’s Winners Circle



Georgetown, DE ….. GR Smith of Huntersville, NC became the fourth different winner in four Super Late Model features at the Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, DE on Friday night. Smith, in just his second appearance at the First State speed plant, held off a couple of former Modified hot shoes in Billy Decker and Ricky Elliot to secure the victory.

Curt Michael beat a thin field of ten cars in the 360 Sprint Car feature to claim his first Georgetown victory. Tim Trimble of Easton, MD won the 20 lap Crate Modified feature to notch his first victory of the year. Ross Robinson of Georgetown collected his fourth Crate Late Model 20 lap feature win of the year.

It took three attempts but Jamie Lathroum led the twenty car field of Super Late Models to the green flag to begin the 25 lap main event. GR Smith wasted little time and took the lead in turn one, leaving Lathroum behind to battle with Kenny Pettyjohn.

Smith led through several caution periods as the twenty car field began to thin. Contenders Tim Fuller, Billy Decker, and Ricky Elliot all were involved in early altercations but returned to challenge for the victory.

Fuller was the first to try and pick apart Smith, moving in to challenge by lap nine. Fuller tried on several occasions to pull alongside Smith’s Premier Motorsports/Outlaw sponsored ride but rear end troubles would send Fuller to the pits early and end his threat.

Billy Decker, the teammate of Fuller, picked up the pursuit but failed to draw close enough to steal the victory. Decker had to settle for second after holding off the many challenges from Seaford, DE’s Ricky Elliot. Kenny Pettyjohn and David Pettyjohn rounded out the top five in a feature that saw just thirteen of the original twenty starters finished.

Gary Gollub has logged many laps at the Georgetown Speedway over the years and started the 25 lap 360 Sprint Car feature from the point. Gollub led the first eight laps but Curt Michael, piloting the Palladino Motorsports number 99, blew by for the lead on the ninth circuit.

Michael opened up a straightaway advantage while Chris Coyle worked up from his sixth starting position. Coyle finally got by Gollub and set sail on chasing down Michael. With the fans on their feet, Coyle got within two car lengths but ran out of time and settled for second. Gollub held on for third. Scott Pursell and Justin Collette completed the top five.

Joseph Watson had his hands full with Tim Trimble, Justin Griffith, and Mike White in the 20 lap Crate Modified feature. Watson’s lead was short lived as Trimble won both the battle and the war as he took the lead after two laps and raced to his first win of the year. Trimble, from Easton, MD, held off Justin Griffith after he slipped by Joseph Watson. Jordan Watson moved from thirteenth to finish third as he edged Jeff Brown, who posted his best finish of the year with a fourth place showing. Joseph Watson held on to round out the top five after late race struggles.

Kelly Putz led 19 of the 20 laps in the Crate Late Model feature but failed to lead the most important one, the final lap. Ross Robinson snuck to the inside of Putz after taking the white flag and slipped up in front of the leader to race to his fourth win of the year. Putz had to settle for a disappointing second. Ryan Walls crossed the line third but post race inspection found his ride to be light, handing Mike Wharton the third spot. Mike Wilson and Bobby Watkins rounded out the top five in a race slowed by five cautions.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night June 8 with Big Block Modifieds. Crate Late Models and Crate Modifieds will also be on the racing schedule. Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7 pm, and racing underway at 7:40 pm. For more information, visit www.georgetownspeedway.com  or call (302) 856-7415.

Godown Finally Gets Trip To Georgetown Winners Circle



Georgetown, DE ….. Ryan Godown of Ringoes, NJ has always run well at the Georgetown Speedway but has never been able to make the elusive trip to victory lane. That all changed on Friday night as Godown drove the Stanton Hills Landscaping mount to an exciting two car length victory over Billy Pauch.

Ross Robinson finally returned to the winners circle after claiming the Crate Late Model 20 lap main event. Jerry Carter was in front when the caution and checkered waved together to end the caution plagued and shortened 10 lap Crate Modified main.

Ryan Godown started the 25 lap Big Block Modified main from third place but quickly jumped on top of the seventeen car field. Dale Hawkins gave chase over the first four laps before tenth place starter and two time winner Wade Hendrickson and ninth place starter Pauch moved in to challenge.

The second place battle between Pauch and Hendrickson allowed Godown to open a substantial lead but three early cautions over then first nine laps kept them close. When racing resumed on lap ten Godown was leading Pauch, Hendrickson, Judd Mills, Scott VanGorter, and sixteenth place starter Kenny Brightbill.

Pauch and Hendrickson resumed their battle while Godown opened up a twelve car length advantage. The race stayed green and Pauch closed in over the closing laps as the leaders began to work lapped traffic. Godown ran up on two cars racing door to door in turn three while heading to the white flag and Pauch on the rear bumper. Godown decided to “thread the needle” and split the two in turn three.

That move proved to be essential as Godown left turn four with a four car length advantage and raced away to his first win at Georgetown. Pauch claimed second while Hendrickson held on for a third place finish. Brightbill returned from mechanical problems that kept him from competing in a heat race to take fourth. Chad James rounded out the top five.

“We really like this race track so it feels good to finally get a win here after so many tries,” commented a jubilant Godown during the post race interview.

Godown raced at Georgetown in 2006 on six occasions posting three seconds and three thirds. In two previous races in 2007, Godown has a second and a seventeenth. Now he can add a win to his record after Friday night’s impressive run. Godown and Judd Mills won the qualifying heat races.

Mike Wilson led the seventeen car Crate Late Model field to the green flag and managed to lead the first lap. But it was all Ross Robinson and the Grottoes Pizza number seven after that as he raced to his third win of the year. Wilson held off Herb Tunis for the runner-up honors. Mike Wharton worked forward from his tenth place starting position to take fourth. Kelly Putz followed Wharton from eleventh to round out the top five.

Heat races were won by Tyler Reed and Wharton.

Five caution periods over the first ten laps would signal the early end to the Crate Modified feature event. The final caution, brought out by Justin Griffith and his spin off the banking in turn two, came as Jerry Carter, Joseph Watson, Mike White, Adam Jarrell, and Tom Curtis were all battling for the lead.

Carter led the twenty-on car field to the green and led the first two circuits before giving way to Joseph Watson. Watson fended off several challenges from Carter over the next five laps but could only watch as Carter drifted back in front to lead lap nine. White was knocking on the door of both lead cars with Jarrell and Curtis just waiting for something to happen.

Well that something did happen when Griffith went spinning and the decision was made to call the event after ten laps. Carter was credited with the victory while Watson and White protested the finish. Watson was officially awarded second place while White took third place honors. Jarrell and Curtis rounded out the top five in the running order. John Wynn and Jordan Watson won the heat racing events.

The Georgetown Speedway returns to action on Friday night June 1 with 360 Sprint cars and Super Late Models. Crate Late Models and Crate Modifieds will also be on the racing schedule. Gates will open at 5 pm, hot laps at 7 pm, and racing underway at 7:40 pm. For more information, visit www.georgetownspeedway.com  or call (302) 856-7415.
