TARGA NEWFOUNDLAND TO KICK OFF ITS 2015 PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN AT MOTORAMA

TARGA NEWFOUNDLAND TO KICK OFF ITS 
2015 PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN AT MOTORAMA

A Brand New Show on a Weekend You Know!
March 13, 14 & 15, 2015 at Toronto's International Centre

 

TORONTO, ON // OCTOBER 24, 2014 • Within weeks of wrapping up another successful edition of Targa Newfoundland, organizers are already preparing for the 2015 event. That includes the announcement that the promotional campaign for Targa 2015 will kick off at the inaugural Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo. The show takes place March 13, 14 & 15, 2015 at Toronto's International Centre.

 

For the past several years, Targa Newfoundland has been a fixture at the Canadian Motorsports Expo (CME), which was held annually in February at the same venue. There, Targa officials connected with competitors, sponsors and the media to discuss the unique, world-class event which takes place every September in beautiful eastern Newfoundland.

 

For 2015, the Canadian Motorsports Expo will be incorporated into the new Motoramashow, which will occur on the same mid-March weekend that has – for four decades – featured Canada's largest custom car and hot rod show. The new Motorama show appeals to a wider range of automotive and racing enthusiasts, making Motorama an even better promotional fit for Targa Newfoundland. Next year's Targa Newfoundland takes place September 13-18 (2015).

 

"Opening up the show to the custom car crowd is an additional bonus for us," said Robert Giannou, the President and founder of Targa Newfoundland. "Our 'Fast Tour' division is geared to the 'car guy,' and they'll be the ones who will be interested in our kind of adventure."

 

As in past appearances, the Targa Newfoundland display will feature multiple examples of race-ready machinery, along with their drivers and support crews. Organizers of the Targa will also be on hand to answer any questions, while encouraging potential entrants into giving this unique automotive experience a try.

 

According to Giannou, participants in the annual 'Race Around the Rock' will come away with three life lessons. "First, it's the experience of a lifetime. Second, it will change your life. And last, it's awfully addictive."

 

These factors are behind one of Targa's well-known promotional lines: "We know you'll be back; your first time will not be your last."

 

Targa's annual appearance in Toronto is a key component of Targa's promotional campaign. Giannou continues, "This show is the major motorsports exposition in the country, and the Targa Newfoundland is one of the major motorsports events in Canada. For us, the best part of being at the Motorama show is that the attending competitors will be the ones selling the programme. That leaves us, the race organizers, to enjoy the show and network with other people from different racing disciplines."

 

ABOUT TARGA NEWFOUNDLAND: Targa Newfoundland is the only race of its kind in the northern hemisphere; the other Targa events take place in Tasmania and New Zealand. It is a six day, 1,600 kilometre, cross-country rally, which takes place annually in mid-September. There are three eligible divisions, the Targa class is for hard-core racers; the Grand Touring division caters to traditional rallyists, and the Fast Tour is a non-competitive class, geared to those entrants preferring to enjoy a quick run through the eastern and southern portions of the spectacular island province. Past Targa participants include such notables as: Chrysler development guru Ralph Gilles, former Canadian driving champion Eppie Wietzes, journalist Jim Kenzie, television personality Dennis Gage, and the Trailer Park Boys.Further information about Targa Newfoundland, call (toll-free) 1-877-332-2413, or visit them on the web at TargaNewfoundland.com.

 

ABOUT THE MOTORAMA CUSTOM CAR & MOTORSPORTS EXPO: The inaugural Motorama show takes place March 13, 14 & 15, 2015 at Toronto's International Centre, adjacent to Toronto's Pearson International Airport. With a footprint of almost a quarter-million square feet, the show will be Canada's biggest late-winter celebration of automobiles and motorsports.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway Postpones Dirt Track Finale Again

Devil's Bowl Speedway Postpones Dirt Track Finale Again

Wet grounds force rescheduling to November 1

 

For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                        DBS-102414-1

 

WEST HAVEN, VT – Devil's Bowl Speedway is again postponing its final dirt track stock car race of the season.  The Autosaver Ford/Springfield Buick-GMC "Vermont Freedom & Unity" event has now been moved three times from its original date due to weather-related conditions; one final attempt will be made at running the race on Saturday, November 1 at 1:00 p.m.

With steady rain in eight of the last nine days at the facility, the clay surface of the dirt track has become too saturated for crews to be able to prepare a quality racing surface in enough time for competition on Sunday afternoon.

"We want to give our racers and fans the best quality show that we can, and any attempt at running a race on Sunday would just result in a rutted, muddy track," promoter Mike Bruno said.  "The good news is that the weather forecast looks great for next week, and we're optimistic that we'll be able to finish the season on a high note."

The Autosaver Ford/Springfield Buick-GMC "Vermont Freedom & Unity" event is the third and final leg of the "Battle at the Bowl" dirt track series and features a 100-lap, $2,000-to-win Sportsman Modified race that crowns champions for both the Battle at the Bowl and the Northern Modified Challenge Series.  Champions will also be crowned in the Renegade and Mini Stock divisions, and the Bond Auto Parts Sprint Cars of New England tour will also wrap up its point chase with a $1,000-to-win race.  A special $1,000-to-win event for the Bear Ridge Speedway Sportsman Coupe division is also on the card.

Grandstand general admission on Saturday, November 1 is $20 for adults and free for kids 12 and under, with pit passes at $40.  Pit gates will open at 9:00 a.m., with the grandstands open at 11:00 a.m.  Hot laps will begin at 12:00 noon, followed by Sportsman time trials at 12:30 p.m.  Green flag racing action starts at 1:00 p.m.

Devil's Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, VT, four miles north of Exit 2 on U.S. Route 4.  For more information, visit www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com or call (802) 265-3112.  Devil's Bowl Speedway is on Facebook atfacebook.com/DevilsBowlSpeedway and on Twitter and Instagram at @DevilsBowlSpeed; follow the action using the #DevilsBowl and #BattleAtTheBowl hashtags.

Caraway’s North-South Shootout Brings Out The Best In PASS South Racers



Caraway's North-South Shootout Brings Out The Best In PASS South Racers

 

-       For Immediate Release

 

CHARLOTTE, NC (October 23) – In its 12-year history, the John Blewett III Memorial North-South Shootout presented in memory of Charles Kepley has become known for attracting the best in short track racing.  And, as the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Models enter its third season being a part of the North-South Shootout at Caraway Speedway, this has also proven to be the case as well.

            PASS South has competed at Caraway Speedway five times since 2008 when Justin Wakefield took the first checkered flag there. But, it's been in the North-South Shootout when the best PASS has to offer has shined.  In 2012, North Carolina legend Jay Fogleman battled throughout the 150 lap event with Ross Kenseth before finally prevailing for his second win of the season.  That win at Caraway sent Fogleman on his way to his first of two straight PASS National Championships.

            Last year's PASS South Super Late Model portion of the North-South Shootout at Caraway is still a race fans are talking about today.  Two-time PASS South Caraway winner Kyle Grissom appeared to be on his way to a third win at the speedway, but a characteristic late race surge by Daniel Hemric propelled him to the lead and seemingly on the way to a victory.  But, a late race caution changed all of that, as Hemric and Grissom made contact entering turn one on the restart and collected several other lead lap contenders.  Maine legend and 4-time PASS North Champion, Ben Rowe, avoided the carnage, advancing from seventh place on the restart to claim his first victory in the prestigious event.

            This year's event has all the earmarks of another classic as Tyler Church, Cole Timm, and Jared Irvan look to bounce back after lackluster performances at Orange County Speedway as they compete for the PASS South Super Late Model championship.  One of the most impressive group of Super Late Model drivers ever assembled for the North-South Shootout is expected as they look to defend the bragging rights for their respective regions.

Action at Caraway Speedway getsstarted early for the 12th Annual North-South Shootout with an optional practice for all divisions on Thursday, October 30th fromNoon – 6 PM.  On Friday, October 31 practice will go from 11 AM – 4:10 PM, with grandstand gates opening at 4 PM, and qualifying set to start at 5 PM for the PASS South Super Late Models, Tour-type Modifieds, USAC Eastern Midgets, and Limited Late Models, followed by the PASS last chance race, Tour-type Modified heat races and support division features at 7 PM.  On Saturday, November 1, practice will start at 9:30 AMwith grandstand gates opening at 11 AM, the pit party at 12:30 PM and racing slated to start at 2 PM.  The PASS South Super Late Models will race for 150 laps, along with 125 laps for the Tour-type Modifieds, and 100 laps for the Limited Late Models

PASS South Super Late Model entry forms as well as the complete weekend schedule for the 12th Annual North-South Shootout at Caraway Speedway can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway, the Autobus La Quebecoise Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudière, and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway.  For technical information concerning all PASS divisions please send questions topassracing@roadrunner.com.  For media or marketing questions, please contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 or alandietzpass@live.com.  Please visit ProAllStarsSeries.com for more information.  And, don't forget to "Like" the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with breaking news as it happens.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway Moves Rescheduled Date to Sunday

Devil's Bowl Speedway Moves Rescheduled Date to Sunday

Parade, forecast prompt officials to move finale to Sunday, October 26 at 1:00 p.m.

 

For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                         DBS-102014-1

 

WEST HAVEN, VT – Devil's Bowl Speedway officials have announced that the facility's final dirt track stock car race of the season will have to wait for one additional day.  The Autosaver Ford/Springfield Buick-GMC "Vermont Freedom & Unity" event was postponed by rain last week and was initially rescheduled for Saturday; however, the makeup date has been reset to Sunday, October 26 at 1:00 p.m.

Two major factors contributed to the date being readjusted: another unfavorable weather forecast, and the 55th annual Rutland Halloween Parade in Downtown Rutland, VT.  The parade is one of the area's largest and most enjoyable community gatherings each fall, and is scheduled for Saturday, October 25.

"Many of our race fans, competitors, and officials attend and even participate in the parade every year, including those that help us with our annual Devil's Bowl Speedway float," track co-owner Alayne Bruno said.  "Running our race on the same day as the parade would have forced some people to choose between the two, and we want everyone to be able to enjoy both events."

Track co-owner Mike Bruno agreed, adding that a predicted four consecutive days of rain during the week would have made running on Saturday tougher.

"The Rutland community has been good to Devil's Bowl, and we have fun supporting the parade, so it was a pretty easy decision," Mike Bruno said.  "We also learned a big lesson a few weeks ago about how the clay on our new track surface holds water after rain, and waiting until Sunday will give us one extra day to dry it out so we can put a nice surface together."

Officials also said that should the October 26 date be postponed again for any reason, the final attempt at running the event will be on Saturday, November 1 at 1:00 p.m.  The tentative November 1 date is also contingent upon ground conditions and forecasted weather and temperature patterns.

The Autosaver Ford/Springfield Buick-GMC "Vermont Freedom & Unity" event on Sunday, October 26 will feature a 100-lap Sportsman Modified race, the winged Sprint Cars of New England tour, a special event for the Bear Ridge Speedway Sportsman Coupe division, and Renegades and Mini Stocks.

Grandstand general admission is $20 for adults and free for kids 12 and under, with pit passes at $40.  Pit gates will open at 9:00 a.m., with the grandstands open at 11:00 a.m.  Hot laps will begin at 12:00 noon, followed by Sportsman time trials at 12:30 p.m.  Green flag racing action starts at 1:00 p.m.

Devil's Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, VT, four miles north of Exit 2 on U.S. Route 4.  For more information, visit www.DevilsBowlSpeedwayVT.com or call (802) 265-3112.  Devil's Bowl Speedway is on Facebook atfacebook.com/DevilsBowlSpeedway and on Twitter and Instagram at @DevilsBowlSpeed; follow the action using the #DevilsBowl and #BattleAtTheBowl hashtags.

@ovalracing: Ironic: @mattkenseth pushes @keselowski 2 the win. Rookie takes @KyleBusch out of contention. KB was playing safe & smart. So much for that

Fall Nationals at Brockville Speedway



Excitement Builds for the DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals at Brockville Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

 

One of the year's most anticipated motorsports experiences is just days away. The 2014 running of the DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals, newly re-branded as the 1000 Islands RV Fall Nationals – a Craig Revelle Tribute – presented by St. Lawrence Radiology and Rez X Racing, takes the green flag Friday night at Brockville Ontario Speedway.

 

Now in its 6th action-packed edition, this is the event that draws the biggest names in DIRTcar Racing to tackle the tight confines of the 3/8th mile layout on Temperance Lake Road, off highway 29 just north of Brockville. Track owner/promoter Paul Kirkland says he and the entire team at The BOS are looking forward to getting back to action after a layoff of more than a month.

 

"We ran an endurance event September 14th, but our last show with the Modified, Sportsman and street stock teams was Saturday, August 30th," explained Kirkland.  "Some of our regulars follow the season-ending Mr. DIRTcar Championship Trail dates, but most are strictly weekend warriors. No matter how often or where they race, everyone who has passed through our pit gates even once wants to add a Fall Nationals' trophy to their collection of racing hardware."

 

Paul Kirkland says that Brockville Speedway is a driver's track, where handling takes precedence over horsepower.  That opens-up the playing field and gives just about anyone a chance to upset the touring stars.  The Saturday night favourites will get the same chance of finding victory lane as the full-time professional drivers like Billy Decker, Danny Johnson and Brett Hearn.

 

"Look at the success a guy like Chris Herbison has had here over the years," offered Kirkland.  "He won the Sportsman Modified track championship in 2011 and 2012 and also claimed a Nationals win in 2011 and 2013.  Kyle Dingwall won the Sportsman crown in 2004 and was our 2012 Modified champion in 2012. Matt Billings was the top Sportsman driver in 2009 and is now a Big Block Modified Series regular. All of these guys have a legitimate chance of getting to the winner's circle this weekend."

 

For 2014, the show has been reformatted to be run over 2 nights. Friday, will see the 358 Modified Super DIRTcar Championship race, along with the Go Nuclear Late Models and a Street Stocks Invitational with a 7:00green flag. Saturday has the Big Block and Sportsman Modified Championship Trail dates, as well as the popular Vintage Mods. Racing starts at 4:00. Sunday, October 19th will be used as a rain date, as needed.

 

Fans should make their calendars for Friday and Saturday, October 17th and 18th to make sure they don't miss the 6thrunning of the 1000 Islands RV Fall Nationals – a Craig Revelle Tribute – presented by St. Lawrence Radiology and Rez X Racing at Brockville Ontario Speedway.  Check out live music by Texas Tuxedos at the MYFM Small Block Party in the Turn 4 camping area after the Friday night action, a free concert with Ambush starting at 12:30 Saturday afternoon and the Bon Fire Bash with Rudy & the Saddle Ups following Saturday night's final checkered flag.  DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals events are also brought to you in part by 

BOB-FM/JR-FM, The Brockville Recorder & Times and CKWS-TV.
