  Race Schedule Changes
  
by Starr Mullie
.

  Please be advised of a schedule change for the Spencer Speedway Summit ET Drag Racing Series. We will be racing on Friday July 19th our regular show and not racing on Saturday July 20th. Gates will open at 4pm with time trials starting at 5:30. This is to accommodate our racers and staff that would like to participate in the ESTA 10K show on July 20th and the ROC show in Oswego that weekend. Also there will be no Drag racing on July 27th so that we can allow the NASCAR points series to catch up on their points races due to the numerous rain outs that they have experienced. We will go back to regular schedule the weekend of August 2nd and 3rd.

  Thank you for your patience and participation over the last few weeks with our rain and track flooding issues. We appreciate it very much.

  See everyone at the track!

  Spencer Speedway Drag Racing Season Opener Notes
  
by Starr Mullie
.

  Well the season is fast approaching and we have been diligently working on getting the facility ready for racing. We have some new staff joining the track official team to replace some of the staff not returning and to continue with the burn out area clean up and also continue in the organization of the staging lanes.

  In the continuance of organizing the staging lanes is the assistance of the racers in getting to the lanes when you are called up to the lanes promptly. Do not come to the lanes prior to your class being called as this will result in either you being returned to your pit area or taking a lap. I ask this as we are getting too much confusion in the lanes when we are planning different things and if a racer gets into the lanes when not supposed to be there it bottle necks everything and we are not always able to move out of the way. Please pay attention to the announcements as they will give you the information needed. We will be announcing the bye runs in between rounds, this is so the bye run racer doesn’t get into the lanes and then we have to try to get that racer out into the appropriate staging area. Each class will be called 3 times as in the past, 5 minutes after 3rd call the lanes will be closed and the possibility of loss of chance to run....

by Lee DeRidder
.

  We all want to say a big thank you to the guys and girls who came on Friday June 15th to show the roundy rounds how the whole drag thing works. It was a good show and the crowd loved it. We did get some people there Saturday night that saw it on Friday night. Thanks also goes out to Starr, Roger, Jeremy, Melanna, Chuck, Mike, Chris, Kyle and Dan, and anyone I missed for the help to get things set up and taken down. It was a good show and everyone enjoyed it.

  Now for your Saturday night results. We had a little excitement with a car into the fence at the end of the track and some parts and pieces on the track, but Ian Bacon managed to win in the Super class, good job Ian. Dan Tantalo finished second with Billy Ryan and Angelo Ragusa in third and fourth. Chucky White made it back with his car, after blowing it up two weeks ago, taking First place in the Pro class, with Clark Gabriel in second and Terry Deer and Fred O’Neil to follow. Jeff Scoveille took the Street Class with Bob Lynchesky in Secone and Clarence Spody in third. We had only one Street Trophy class runner and that was Van Grant, who also won in the 6 Cylinder class on Friday night. Believe it or not we had time for a gamblers race and Nina Mc Donald won with Steve Marshall Jr taking Second.

  It was a fun filled weekend and we hope the weather stays good so we can do it all over again this week. Have a great week one and all and hope to see you on Saturday....

  Beckens, McFadden and Fedigan earn Event Wins
.

  We were not sure that the rain was going to stop, but it did and Eric Beckens has done it again, taking first place in the Super class. Rob Nelson finished with a strong second. Rounding out the field was Sam Capizzi Sr and Sue Hunt. Michael McFadden came in first in the Pro class. It must be a thing for second place because Sam Capizzi Jr took it in the Pro class, keeping it in the family I guess. Brandon Iamele took third and Scott Beasaw Sr came in forth. George Fedigan Sr took the win in the Street class with Jeff Scoville and Anthony Tandryk in third. Everyone please remember that some of your fellow racers will be at the track on Friday June 15th to do a small show for the spectators. We are hoping that some of them will come see you guys on Saturday night. Also we are racing on July 4th with gates opening at 10:30, time trials at Noon, and eliminations at 2. If there are any changes to that I will post it on here next week. Everyone have a good rest of the week and I will see you at the ticket booth on Saturday..... Point Standings As Of June 9

  Delbert Spencer - “A racing dynasty has finally come to an end”
  by Gary M. Spaid

 .
  On March 29, at 2 p.m., Delbert Spencer, co-founder of Spencer Speedway passed away at age 86, following complications after heart surgery. Two years ago his brother Walter Spencer, 91, passed away following a short illness. Walter was the oldest of the three brothers who founded Spencer Speedway in 1955. Finally on March 4, 2010 brother Merle Spencer, the youngest brother, passed away at age 80. There was only seven months between the passing of Merle and Walter. Delbert was also predeceased by his son Gary.

  The Spencer family remained at the helm of their namesake speedway until 1994, when they apparently sold the speedway. The family abruptly returned as the management of the track when the proposed purchase fell apart. It was not until 2007 when the track was finally sold to the current owner, John White
