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. The FASTRAK World Championship will also be broadcasted tape-delayed on MavTV and available as pay-per-view on Speed51.com.

“We are excited to be partnering with FASTRAK and bringing late model racing, on a weekly basis, to the area,” continued Fontana, “We believe FASTRAK is the perfect fit for us.”

Winter Freeze Kicks Off 2018 FASTRAK Racing Series Schedule with $23,135 Total Purse

The temperature may be cold, but the season is ready to heat up for the FASTRAK Racing Series. As part of Winter Freeze at Screven Motor Speedway, the Chevrolet Performance Late Models will hit the red clay to battle for over $23,000 in two complete shows. The FASTRAK Racing Series is set to begin its 15th season, February 9th and 10th at the Sylvania, GA race track. Drivers will compete for $2,000 to win on Friday and $3,000 to win on Saturday.

“I can’t think of a better place to kick-off our 2018 season,” said FASTRAK General Manager DJ Irvine, “We always have a strong field at Screven and fantastic racing.”

The FASTRAK Racing Series will continue with the new format, which was introduced at Screven in the 2017 season finale. Competitors will be split into two qualifying groups, based on pill draw, A and B. Heat race lineups will be determined by qualifying times with Group A making heats 1 and 3 and Group B making heats 2 and 4. The new format still produced the same quality of racing that everyone has come to expect from the FASTRAK Racing Series. Series officials decided to implement the change for the entire 2018 season.

“We used the new format after several drivers had asked for a change,” stated Irvine, “we always listen to their input and are willing to try something new. This time, they were right.”

The 2017 season saw a competitive point battle throughout the season, and the same is expected in 2018. The Championship, won by Benji Hicks, was locked up in the next to final race, also at Screven Motor Speedway. FASTRAK Racing Series is a part of the Winter Freeze for the first time.

In FASTRAK’s last appearance at Screven, Travis Pennington of Stapleton, GA took home the victory in the $2,000 to win event on November 17th. On November 18th, Dillon Brown of Gaffney, SC beat the field to the checkered flag to collect $3,000 in the FASTRAK Racing Series season finale.

Drivers wishing to compete in the FASTRAK Racing Series tour can send in their membership forms to the office or fill them out at Screven Motor Speedway. The 2018 membership form is available on the FASTRAK website, fastrakracing.com.

2019 FASTRAK World Championship will Pay $50,000 to Win

At the annual FASTRAK Night of Champions, which saw a crowd of over 200 attendees, Virginia Motor Speedway representative Dave Seay announced a total purse of $158,075 for the 2019 FASTRAK World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway. The winner of the richest Chevrolet Performance Late Model event ever will be awarded $50,000. The event will coincide with the celebration of the Jamaica, VA track’s 50th anniversary.

“We want to take Pro Late Model racing, with FASTRAK, to the next level” said Seay, “We hope that you’ll make plans now to be there for the 2019 FASTRAK World Championship.”

The 2019 FASTRAK World Championship will pay $2,050 to start and feature non-qualifiers races for those not making the feature event. The goal is to have more cars competing for money, in what is already considered the biggest stage in Chevrolet Performance Late Model racing. The 2017 FASTRAK World Championship saw 71 cars compete for a spot in the 24-car field.

“There has never been a $50,000 to win race for Pro Late Models,” said FASTRAK Founder Stan Lester, “Virginia Motor Speedway will always hold that title and I can’t thank Bill Sawyer enough.”

Additionally, a change for the 2018 FASTRAK World Championship was announced. This season will see more drivers given the opportunity to race for money with the addition of at least one non-qualifiers race. More non-qualifiers races could be added, depending on the number of participants. The program will be all late models, the final format will be announced at a later date.

The FASTRAK World Challenge, a $5,000 to win race for FASTRAK members only, will still take place on the Friday before the FASTRAK World Championship. Members must compete in a minimum of ten FASTRAK sanctioned events to be eligible for the World Challenge.
The 2018 FASTRAK World Challenge is scheduled for September 14th and the $20,000 to win 2018 FASTRAK World Championship is September 15th. The rain date is scheduled for September 16th.
