FASTRAK in the Hoosier State: Movieland Speedpark becomes FASTRAK Sanctioned

Carnesville, GA – Movieland Speedpark in Chandler, IN will be FASTRAK weekly sanctioned for the Pro Late Models in 2019. The track, which is being operated by Reno Fontana will open with a test and tune on April 12, with the first racing night slated for April 19.

“I was born and raised in the Chandler area,” said Fontana, “I won my first bracket race at the dragstrip when I was 16 years old and my first victory at the dirt oval came in 1970 at the age of 17. So when the chance to buy the Chandler track presented itself, I jumped, and here I am today as the new owner.”

Fontana, now residing in Southern California, has plans to turn the now “Movieland Speedpark” into one of the finest community centers in the Tri-State area, with plans that span beyond motorsports.

The FASTRAK Pro Late Models will run on Friday nights at the 3/8th mile oval in 2019. Teams will have the opportunity to race for the $5,000 to win FASTRAK VP Racing Fuels National Weekly Championship. Drivers who become FASTRAK members and compete in a minimum of 10 races will be eligible for the 2019 FASTRAK World Challenge at Beckley Motorsports Park on October 5th and 6th. The newly formatted FASTRAK World Championship will pay $2,000 to win on Friday and $5,000 to win on Saturday along with a $5,000 to win points fund for the top 10 drivers through the two nights. Additionally, drivers at Movieland Speedpark will compete for a FASTRAK Divisional Championship, which has $1,000 in point money per track within the division.

“Building this class in the tri-state area is our main focus,” said FASTRAK Executive Vice President DJ Irvine, “FASTRAK offers a host of benefits to the drivers and great championship point funds to compete for. I’m truly excited about Movieland Speedpark joining the FASTRAK family.”

FASTRAK members also receive $100,000 of participant accident medical insurance through Mutual of Omaha, which is included in their membership. Additional crew members can be added to the policy for just $20 per year. FASTRAK hosts a first-class Night of Champions banquet each year to honor all champions from the previous year. This year’s banquet was in Kingsport, TN.

The 2019 FASTRAK World Championship will pay $50,000 to win and $2,050 to start at Virginia Motor Speedway on September 13th and 14th. The race is the single richest Chevrolet Performance Late Model race in the history of the class.

Martin Pelletier Dominates Sportsman Modified Field at Cornwall Motor Speedway

Martin Pelletier leads all 50-laps to win his second DIRTcar Sportsman series race in 2018

CORNWALL, ONT – September 2, 2018 – Martin Pelletier showed everyone why he was the guy to beat in the northern portion of the DIRTcar Sportsman division as he led all 50 laps in the feature to capture a second win on the tour this season.

‘’I was lucky in the draw, I am not sure I would have been able to pass so many cars as the track was tacky’’ mentioned a humble Pelletier in the winner circle. ‘’I had a tremendous year, quite incredible to be able to win so many wins’’ said Pelletier who captured his 22nd win of the season after securing track titles at Granby, RPM and Drummond over the weekend. ‘’ I will take a week off and then attack all the races in the fall’’ finished Pelletier talking about the DIRTcar Series races in September and October.

Martin Pelletier and Alex Lajoie led the field to green in the Co-Op Embrun 50, Pelletier led the first lap as Jarrett Herbison slowed in turn 4 bringing the field together. On the restart Pelletier kept the lead with Justin Lalancette moving up to second and Lajoie in third. Caution was back out on lap 7 for Ricky Thompson.

Pelletier to the lead as a good battle for third was occurring between Adam Rozon and Martin Hebert. Pelletier pulled away from the field as the first fifteen laps were in the books.

A few cautions slowed the field down and Pelletier had great starts at each occasion with Justin Lalancette running a strong second with Adam Rozon in third as the feature hit the halfway point.

The race picked some momentum as the leader joined lapped traffic, Lalancette started to challenge the leader as they ran side by side for a few laps as the yellow slowed the field down with 10 laps to go.

On the following restart, Pelletier remained in first as Cornwall point’s leader Shane Pecore cracked the top 3 as top 5 contenders Fred Gamache and Adam Rozon got together losing some ground over the field.

Pelletier went on to lead the whole 50-lap event and captured his second DIRTcar Sportsman North Series win over Lalancette and Pecore.

The northern series will be back in action in less than 2 weeks at Mohawk International Raceway.

Tanner English Two For Two In Duck river Southern All Star Action

RACE RECAP: WHEEL, TN–The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series presented by Max Fab made stop #2 of the 2018 season at the Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, TN., and before a packed grandstand Tanner English of Benton, KY., moved to the high side of the track in the final 10 laps and then passed race long leader Brad Skinner on lap 36 to get his second career Southern All Stars win.  “If I was going to get around Brad I know I had to go to the top and with him staying on the bottom he was being held up by lapped cars and I know that would be my only chance to get around him” said English.

Skinner came home in the second spot and was racing with a heavy heart as his father was laid to rest earlier in the afternoon and Brad was also running a car that was pieced together from two cars as he flipped a car last weekend at Winchester.

Third place went to Scott Cook of Shelbyville, TN., in his best career Southern All Star run.

Fourth to John Owenby from his 9th starting spot.

Fifth to Jay Scott current points leader who as up and down in the top ten all night long.

Finishing in sixth place was David Brannon, seventh to David Seibers in his best run with the series this year, eighth to Jadon Frame, ninth to Terry English and tenth to Dane Dacus.

RACE TIDBITS: Southern All Star point contenders Jay Scott had another solid run with a top five finish, movers in points Brad Skinner, Riley Hickman and Joseph Faulkner.

2017 Southern All Star winner Dane Dacus made his first start of the season with the series.

Longtime Southern All Star competitor Jeff Walker of McMinnville, TN., returned to action.

Mitch Thornton of Columbia, TN., had a shoulder pop out of socket after contact with Mark Dodson in the B main but was ready go by feature time.

First time starts with the series this season include Scott Cook, Dane Dacus, Jeff Walker, Jason Walker, Jeremy Taylor and Kevin Lovvorn

The next Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series event will be Saturday night August 4th at the Blue Ridge Motorsports Park in Blue Ridge, GA., a 40 lap $4,000 to win event.
