SPRINT CAR TEAMS MEET TO DISCUSS 2010 SCHEDULE
Sprint car teams from western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio met again on Sunday, January 24 at the Meridian Fire Hall in Butler, Pa., to discuss the future
of 410 sprint car racing at local speedways.
Representatives of the 25 teams present elected a five-person board to act on the behalf of the teams as it pertains to continuing discussions with Lernerville and Sharon Speedway regarding purse payoffs.
Elected to the five person board were (in alphabetical order) Martha Dionese, Bob Felmlee, Kevin Schaeffer, Jack Sodeman Jr., and Eric Williams.
Schaeffer urges teams that were unable to attend the meeting to contact any of the above board members for information.
“With Goodyear providing additional funding to the local race tracks for switching tire brands, our local sprint car teams believe some of the funding should go back into the purse like many other tracks that have switched brands have announced“, Schaeffer said.
Schaeffer added that the teams will support the higher paying special sprint car events at the local speedways in 2010.
