THIS IS IT!!! The Fans have gotten what they've been waiting for!!!
Wall Stadium Speedway, will be showcasing the 45th Annual Turkey Derby on Thanksgiving weekend. The Derby, will be having an action packed schedule loaded with; Tour Type Modified will be taking 150 tours around the high banks. SK/Wall Modified will be racing in a 100 lap contest are the headliners to fans. Rounding out the Turkey Derby plate are; Sportsman, ATQMRA, Legend, Factory Stock, 4 Cylinder, Dirt Modified, Limited Late Model, Dirt Sportsman, Outlaw Stock and, Demo Derby.
In the Tour Type Modified; defending and five time winner Jimmy Blewett had dominated the event by clocking fast time and, had no trouble in the contest. Three time champion, "Big Money" Matt Hirschman will be returning this year in his potent #60 for the 150 lap assault and, bring home a possible fourth trophy. NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Regular; Timmy Solomito would be a threat to pull an upset on the other competitors in his family mount. Holmdel's Andrew Krause, had a remarkable finish last year by bringing home a second. 18 year old phenom; Blake Barney had been competing the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour in the Big Red #14. Barney, finished second in the Rookie Points and, would possibly fulfil his dream to bring the #14 to Victory Lane since Eric Mauriello and Tony Siscone did. Former track champion, Anthony Sesley will be in the mix along with other drivers from Mahoning Valley and other tracks'll be in the big contest.
SK Modifieds; Jimmy Blewett had closed the Derby after sweeping the Mods. Not only seeing him in those, he'll be racing Horton's 43 and it's like a grab bag for him to run any car. 2006 winner Steven Reed, will be in the 100 lap race in his new #55. Eric Mauriello, won the Derby in 2014 in the Tour Modified Dick Barney's #14. Mauriello, would add another Derby trophy in his collection in the Ferrera #31. Other Competitors, would take a shot at the big prize as the race progresses.
Fans like seeing the races and even the drama folds out on the track or pits.
I like to thank the Krause family for keeping this traditional event alive!!!
