All Star Slingshots & 270cc Micros In June 27 Spotlight At Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway
Kim's Kreations and JD Motorsports are sponsoring the night of action, with OMS Racing coming on board as the title sponsor for Slide at the Clyde III. The third installment of the popular Tour event for the Slingshots will surely draw another outstanding field of competitors, as OMS and Kim's Kreations team up to make this a very lucrative race for the Slingers. Glass reports that more than $1,000 has been added to the purse, and she's collected more than $450 (so far) for special awards and lap money that will be distributed to the drivers.
In addition, Glass is selling raffle tickets for $20 each, with the lucky winner receiving a brand new Slingshot Chassis and inner rails (swing arm not included). The drawing will be held during intermission on June 27, just before Slide at the Clyde III main event goes green.
The owner/operator of Kim's Kreations is also conducting a drawing among all pre-entries for Slide at the Clyde III. The winner will get a gift certificate for a $300 powder coating, courtesy of Extreme Powder Coating. That drawing will be held on June 2nd, and all Slingshot pre-entries received by June 1 will be eligible to win the powder coating certificate. The pre-entry forms are available on the Slingshot by Tobias Facebook page or by contacting Kim Glass at email@example.com. Randy Smith won the first Slide at the Clyde in 2013, while Mark Sensenig took the checkered in last year's race.
Charlotte Hartman, the mother of driver Richie Hartman - a three-time point champion in Lanco's 270cc Class and twice a track champion in the 125cc division - passed away suddenly during the month of February. Ms. Hartman was a huge supporter of her son's motorsports career and a huge fan of Micro-Sprint racing, so Kim's Kreations and Jared Davis Motorsports thought it only proper that a 270cc race be run in her memory. On June 27, Kim's Kreations and JD Motorsports join forces to present the Charlotte Hartman 270cc Memorial Race. Lap money is being collected for this event and several special awards will be handed out, along with a very special trophy presentation to the victorious driver of the 25-lap feature.
The 600cc, 125cc, Sportsman, and 250cc Four-Stroke Micro-Sprints will join the 270's and Slingshots for this unique, action-packed program.
It will be a Saturday night spectacular at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway on June 27, and thanks to Kim's Kreations, the All Star Slingshots will be involved in a huge, three-day weekend of racing when they pull into the Clyde's pit area.
The inaugural Triple Crown of Slingshot racing will take place on June 26, 27, and 28. Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, PA will host the Slingers on Friday night, then comes the Slide at the Clyde III on Saturday. The final Triple Crown event will be run at Shellhammer's Speedway on Sunday the 28th. In addition to the hefty purse at each event, a point fund has also been established for this three race miniseries. The fund continues to grow - it currently stands at more than $1,000 - and the Cordier family is also contributing a $200 bonus if one of their Shellhammer's regulars wins the points.
Below you can download the pre-entry form for Lanco. Any pre-entry that is mailed, or handed in by June 1st will be put into a drawing to win a $300.00 gift certificate to Extreme Powder Coating. (Winner will be drawn on June 1st).
Kutztown, PA. March 12th, 2015 - "It's kind of neat that three old Modified guys have come together to form this team." That's how Tim Iulg, the youngest member of a new SpeedSTR alliance, described the joint venture between Wayne Weaver, Richie Pratt Sr., and Gary Iulg.
Weaver, a staunch supporter of the Tobias built SpeedSTR's over the past few seasons, and Pratt Sr. have been friends since Weaver's days of racing Modifieds. In 2014, Gary Iulg began wrenching on Weaver's South Jersey Overhead Door No. 0. The results were quickly evident, as the Vineland, NJ driver ran up front on a consistent basis and was knocking on the door, weekly, for his first SpeedSTR victory.
On most Wednesdays, Tim Iulg tagged along with his dad, lending a hand while developing a desire to strap into a SpeedSTR himself. Soon after the season ended, Weaver put a plan in motion with his buddy, Pratt Sr., and it wasn't long before the new alliance became a reality. Pratt purchased a new frame and body panels and agreed that his car would be housed and maintained in Weaver's shop. Both cars will also fit in Weaver's enclosed trailer, enabling the team to travel together.
Gary Iulg, the DIRTCar Hall of Famer whose resume includes more than 200 dirt Modified feature wins, will serve as the crew chief for both cars.
Thirty-seven year-old Tim Iulg teaches Health and Phys. Ed. in the Vineland, NJ public school system. He's competed in 270cc and 600cc Micro-Sprints, then Crate Sprint Cars. In addition to winning numerous 600cc features, Iulg captured a couple of Crate Sprint titles at Bridgeport. He also raced with the United Racing Club and ran some ASCS winged Sprint shows before placing his driving career on hold when he and his wife started a family. In 2012 and 2013, he teamed with Glen and Steve Kemery in a successful, two-car 600cc Micro-Sprint assault. Now he will steer Pratt's yellow SpeedSTR, with the color and number a tribute to the car owner's former Modifieds.
Iulg's effort is sponsored by B&F Towing, Fred's Trailer Repair, SinTec, Drissel's Ace Hardware, Bennett Batteries, and Dennis Drain Property Maintenance.
Weaver, who got into Vintage Car activity after his stint in dirt Modifieds, is now at home in the SpeedSTR division. The Facilities Director will once again partner with Sal DeBruno's South Jersey Overhead Door Company, and his re-bodied No. 0 sports a similar paint and graphics scheme as DeBruno's big block Modified...which is driven by Richie Pratt Jr.
It's easy to see that Tim Iulg's description is accurate and appropriate - "three old Modified guys" have indeed joined forces to field a pair of SpeedSTR's in 2015. The team plans to compete weekly at the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA in Kutztown and as often as possible when the SpeedSTR's hit the road for several Tour Races at Thunder Mountain and Five Mile Point in New York, on the asphalt at PA's Mahoning Valley, and for the season ending Fall Jamboree at the Grandview Speedway.
