After a long off season friendships will be renewed and the clay will be flying as long time track supporter Ferris Mowers presents opening night at the Brewerton Speedway this Friday Night April 15th
On the race card will be the Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds, NAPA Late Models, Nationwide Insurance IMCA Modifieds, Beaver River Distribution ESDCA Mod Lites and Metalico Four-Cylinder Super Stocks.
In the Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds will Jimmy Phelps out of Baldwinsville, NY be able to continue the tear he went on in the 2010 season that gave him six- wins and his first ever track championship. Matt Sheppard will try to improve on his second place five- win season and try to unseat Phelps at the “D-Shaped Dirt Demon”.
Larry Wight, Ryan Phelps, Jim Witko, Pat Ward, Billy Decker, Willy Decker, Chuck Bower, Jason Rood, Mike Bowman and others still make the Brewerton Speedway one of the most competitive weekly Big Block Modified fields anywhere in the Northeast.
The NAPA Late Models will continue to see their numbers grow in their second full season of competition in the popular class. Biggest question will be who can step up their race program and try to outrun 2010 Track Champion Dale Caswell.
With Dale Caswell concentrating on just the NAPA Late Models, the Nationwide Insurance IMCA Modifieds will see a new Track Champion in 2011. Kevan Cook, Josh Van Tassell, Mike Smith and high school student Brandon Carvey are the early frontrunners in the class.
In 2010 Tim Devendorf won the title on the last night of the season by five-points over Tim Devendorf as they look to continue their rivalry in the Beaver River Distributions ESDCA Mod Lites. In 2010 47 drivers competed in the popular division.
Does anyone get anymore life out of a car than Chuck Powelczyk in the Four-Cylinder Super Stocks. Look for Powelczyk to bring back his VW Rabbit for another run for top honors at the end of the 2011 season.
