WILLBURG AND NEMETH FIRST TIME WINNERS. ZRINSKI BACK

 IN VICTORY LANE AS BORGERS 2012 SEASON DRAWS TO A CLOSE...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., November 17th, 2012:  On this last race of the 2012 racing season Ed Wilburg Sr., and Ray Nemeth made their way to Borgers Speedway victory lane for the first time and Don Zrinski ended a stellar 2012 racing season doing the same.

Ed Wilburger Sr. said it was about 18 years since he saw victory lane at Limerock Speedway but his patience all year paid off gaining his first Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint win over Carol Shire. Wilburg led every lap of the caution free race.

Ray Nemeth won in All-star Slingshot competition on the dirt at Borgers but today would be his first stop in victory lane on the asphalt. Nemeth led every lap to take th win over Ton Hennessey, Bill Kelschner, Doug Snyder, Mike Lipicki, and Mike Moyer.

Last week Don Zrinski was robbed of a win by Rob Vivona when for the first time ever Zrinski ran out of fuel a few laps from the finish while leading the Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints at Borgers Speedway. Today Zrinski made sure he had enough fuel as he notched another win in spectacular style.

Zrinski led the field to turn one followed by Mike Tidaback and Rob Vivona. By lap two Vivona made the pass on Tidaback with his sights set on Zrinski. Soon a torrid three car battle for the lead developed between Zrinski, Vivona, and Tidaback. By the half way mark Matt Janmisch and Jason Hentrich entered the picture hooking up with the leaders. As the battle raged on in the closing lap Tidaback moved into second spot but did not have enough for the high flying Zrinski. Zrinski too the win followed by Tidaback, Vivona, Janisch, Hentich, Mark Rogers, Kyle Lear, and Ken Andreas.

With the last checkered flag falling on the 2012 racing season at Borgers Speedway the speedway will not remain dark. Saturday November 24 Borgers Speedway will hold an open paid practice session from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. A $20 pit pass will be charged for anyone entering the pits while grandstand admission will be free.

ARNTZ MAKES IT 3, VIVONA SWEEPS DIRT 600'S & TQ'S,

 VANVAULKENBURG WIN NUMBER 2 AS BORGERS SEASON NEARS AN END.

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., November 11th, 2012:  Making the switch to Asphalt proved to be a wise choice for Tom Arntz as he cruised to his third All-star Slingshot win of the late season at Borgers Speedway. Arntz led every lap as Mike Lapicki and Ray Nemeth diced back and forth for second spot with Lapicki coming out on top. Lapicki was second followed by Nemeth and Tom Hennessey,

Rob Vivona led every lap of the Hoosier Racing tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint feature over Ken Andreas, Sheldon Iudicello, and Carol Shire.

In what proved to be another thriller Rob Vivona captured the Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 feature. Rob Vivona led the pack to turn one followed by Austin Fehr and Tim Buckwalter. Buckwalter made the pass on Fehr for second one lap later as Don Zrinski entered the picture. As Vivona opened a slight lead a three car battle for second developed between Buckwalter, Fehr , and Zrinski. Buckwalter and Fehr tangled in turn two setting up a lap six restart. With Zrinski on Vivona’s tail the two raced side by side and Zrinski took the lead on lap eight. While all this was going on Jason Hentrich made his presence known blasting into third spot. With Hentrich coming on like a hurricane the second three car battle of the evening took place but this time it was for the lead. Making a daring outside pass on lap sixteen Vivona grabbed the lead with Zrinski and Hentrich both in striking distance. With three laps to go Zrinski broke bringing out the yellow and setting up a three lap shoot out between Vivona and Hentrich. As the green flag waved Hentrich put intense pressure on Vivona and it looked like Hentrich would make it win number three but ran out of laps. Vivona took the checkered flag followed by Hentrich, Tim buckwalter, Austin Fehr, Danny Drinan. Don Zrinski, Ed Willburger Sr., Blu Metz, and Chad Parks.

Evan Vanvaulkenburg won the Junior Slingshot feature.

HENTRICH CAPTURES TQ THRILLER AT BORGERS.

YODER, ARNTZ, & WASHBURN REPEAT WINNERS....

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., November 2nd, 2012:  With the aftermath and devastation of Hurricane Sandy and frigid weather conditions speedway owner Glenn Borger knew he would take a beating by racing this cold November Saturday afternoon but his feelings were the loss would be well worth it by giving the racing community a brief opportunity to take their minds off what had happened this past week in the Northeast. The family at Borgers Speedway wishes to extend their Thoughts and Prayers to all those affected by this epic disaster. Many of our loyal racers and fans are from the New Jersey and shore points that were so savagely affected by this storm and to them we send well wishes for a safe and rapid recovery.

While the weather outside was frightful Jason Hentrich had his own cure in mind for the warmth of his second win of the season in Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints. Steadily improving each week Jason has risen to “Super Star” status in the last two months. Finishing third in OctoberFest points and grabbing a win two weeks ago Jason scored his second win in a very convincing manner.

At the drop of the green it was Hentrich, Tim Buckwalter and Jonathon Cortright to turn one but by the time they reached turn three it was Buckwalter in the lead. Immediately Buckwalter made it known that he was the man to beat but Hentrich had other ideas. As the two front runners set a blistering pace Don Zrinski was burning up the track from his fifth place starting spot getting by Mark Yoder and Cortright on lap five. With Buckwalter and Hentrich fighting for the lead and Zrinski coming on strong Buckwalter broke with three laps to go. On the restart Hentrich now had to worry about Zrinski who was not letting grass grow under his feet and Cortright who was right on Zrinski’s tail. As the checkered flag waved it was Hentrich in for his second win followed by Zrinski, and in his best run of the season Cortright third, followed by Yoder and Austin Fehr.

Two weeks ago Mark Yoder won his first Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint feature along with Hentrich winning the TQ feature. This week the pair did the same with Yoder winning his second Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint feature followed by Hentrich winning the TQ’s.

Yoder led every lap of the feature followed by Sheldon Iudicello in his first appearance on asphalt second. David Beiler who has been steadily improving each week finished third.

Tom Arntz has sure taken a liking to the Borgers Asphalt taking his second win of the season in the shadow of his All-star Slingshot Tour win on October 13. Mike Lapicki started on the pole and led the first eleven go rounds followed by Tom Arntz and Danny Buccafusca. As Lapicki held the lead a battle rpyale was brewing behind him with Arntz and Buccafusca. Lap tree Buccafusca got by Arntz with his sights set on Lapicki. A lap later Arntz was back in second setting up a three car battle for the lead. Lap twelve Arntz made the move on Lapicki to take the lead with buccafusco nailing second a lap later. A hard clean fought battle between Arntz and Buccafusca proved that good racers can battle side by side at Borgers. At the end it was Arntz edging out Buccafusca followed by Lapacki, Billy Kelschner, and Scott Washburn.

Scott Washburn won the Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modified main over Mike Odwazny, Richie Hitzler, BJ Sherk, and Tim VanHorn.

Next week will be the final week of regular scheduled racing for 2012 at Borgers Speedway. We will be running a full schedule of Karts, MicroStocks, Quarter Midget, TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints, Dirt Wingless 600 Sprints, All-star Slingshots, and XCEL 600 Modifieds. Starting time will be 1:00 p.m. The 4:00 p.m. starting time for the big cars is no longer in affect.

November 17 is the Borgers Speedway Starz Of Tomorrow Quarter Midget Nationals which will be the final race of the 2012 season.

Borgers Speedway banquet will be held December 15 at the garage. $20 per ticket includes a meal and beverage. If you are receiving an award for regular season points you must be present to receive your award. This does not include OctoberFest Series awards which will be awarded whether you attend the banquet or not. I will post a list of the regular season award winner this week.

With the storm I was delayed getting the information to Glenn for the OctoberFest checks and trophies. Checks will be available to the top five finishers in Dirt 600 Sprints, TQ’s, and All-stars Slingshots. If you are not present next week a check will be mailed to you. I will also post a list for these awards. If you cannot make it next week send me your name and address to bobsnyderphoto@enter.net Kart point champions will receive trophies which can be picked up at the garage.

Two January 2013 paid practice dates will be announced shortly.

Special thanks go to speedway electrician Jim Silfee who rewired the entire scoring system and track loop during the past week. The scoring system worked to perfection and no further problems are anticipated.

DYLAN HOCH DOES THE IMPOSSIBLE AS TIDABACK AND VIVONA

 NOTCH FINAL GREEN FLAG DRIVING EXPERIENCE

 BORGERS ASPHALT OCTOBERFEST 2012 WINS....

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., October 27th, 2012: Three weeks ago Dylan Hoch came to Borgers Speedway to prepare for the Junior Slingshot Nationals. After a pair of third place finishes including the Junior National Tour race Dylan decided to give the All-Star Slingshots a try for the final race of Green Flag OctoberFest 2012.

Little did Dylan know how right that move would be. The thirteen year old did the impossible beating a field of some of the best All-Star Slingshot racers at Borgers Speedway. Hurricane Sandy could be cast as a mere summer breeze compared to the storm that Dylan unleashed on the field of Borgers Slingshots.

At the drop of the green it was Al Hauptman leading the pack to turn one with Dylan Hoch and Tom Arntz glued to his rear bumper. Immediately Hoch put pressure on Hauptman with Arntz in striking distance waiting for a slip up by the two front runners. After five laps of intense racing by the top three Hoch made the move to take the lead from Hauptman on lap six. To make matters worse 2012 OctoberFest Champion Kurt Bettler now joined the hunt by the halfway point. With Hauptman, Arntz, and Bettler breathing down his neck Dylan hit his mark lap after lap never missing a beat. As the checkered flag waved Dylan Hoch had just done the impossible with the biggest upset of the 2012 racing season at Borgers storming into victory lane. Hauptman was second followed by Arntz, Bettler, and Ryan Raidline.

He won the season opener back on April 28 and now he won the closing OctoberFest race in Hoosier Racing tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints. Mike Tidaback had an entire season between wins but this win was just as spectacular as the first. At the drop of the green it was Tidaback to turn one with Rob Vivona grabbing second spot from Jason Hentrich. Vivona immediately took chase on Tidaback with Hentrich and Don Zrinski bringing up the rear. Driving a masterful race with Vivona on his tail the entire twenty five laps Tidaback never gave an inch and screamed to win number two followed by Vivona, Hentrich, Zrinski, and Mark Yoder.

Rob Vivona led every lap of the nonstop Hoosier Racing tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints followed by Mark Yoder, Ken Andreas, and David Beiler.

JASON HENTRICH AND MARK YODER GREEN FLAG DRIVING

 EXPERIENCE OCTOBERFEST ROUND FIVE WINNERS....

BETTLER CLINCHES CHAMPIONSHIP....

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., October 20th, 2012:  Green Flag Driving Experience Borgers Asphalt OctoberFest 2012 round five proved to be one of those “Feel Good Days” we look forward to in our sport. Jason Hentrich won his first TQ main along with Mark Yoder scoring his first win in the Wingless 600 Sprints. 82 year old Paul Quear showed the kids that he still has what it takes with his second place finish in Dirt 600 Sprints and Kurt Bettler clinched his second OctoberFest Championship. USAC Sprint Car and Midget driving star Danny Drinan was in TQ competition and Modifed driver Brian “The Dream” Weaver was turning wrenches on the Rich

Salvmini TQ which added up to a very enjoyable fall afternoon at the Borgers 1/7 mile asphalt oval.

The desire to win could be seen in the eyes of Jason Hentrich the entire season at Borgers Speedway. With each passing week of racing Jason was edging closer and it was only a matter of time until the checkered waved for the jet black 67. Today, coming out of turn four Jason saw that checkered flag waving for him.

As the green flag waved Don Zrinski led the field of Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints to turn one followed by Hentrich and Mark Yoder fresh from his Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint win. Immediately a fierce battle for the lead developed between Zrinski and Hentrich for the top spot. The crafty veteran and the young challenger battled lap after lap with Hentrich putting tremendous pressure on the 2012 Borgers TQ point champion. While Hentrich would catch Zrinski going into the turns Zrinski would pull Hentrich coming out of the turns. As all this was taking place Mark Yoder, David Beiler, and Danny Drinan were locked in a three car battle for third place. With five laps to go Hentrich made his move getting by Zrinski as this “Nail Biter” was rapidly coming to a close. After a hard, clean fought battle by all drivers Hentrich took his first checkered flag followed by Zrinski, Yoder, Beiler, and Drinan.

Before the Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint main Mark Yoder mentioned he could use some photos. Little did Mark realize that his request would be granted in victory lane. In what would turn out to be a perfect day for the young driver from Lititz, Pa Mark won his heat setting him on the pole for the feature event. At the drop of the green Yoder charged into turn one with Paul Quear and Joe Agnello hot on his tail. As Yoder and Quear opened a slight lead Agnello suffered tire problems retiring him for the day moving David Beiler to third spot. With Yoder completely in command the laps ticked off with Yoder taking his first win followed by Quear, Beiler and Agnello.

Kurt Bettler won his fifth OctoberFest AllStar Slingshot feature clinching his second OctoberFest Championship the first coming back on the dirt in 2008. The day started out with nothing but problems for Bettler blowing a motor in his racer while on the grid. Jumping in the back up car strike two was dealt as the right rear hub broke during the third practice session. With quick repairs and the luck of the draw Bettler started on the pole and won his heat but a bent axle that could not be repaired in time threatened strike three.

Bettler led the pack to turn one with Al Hauptman and Steve Heckman in hot pursuit. Coming out of turn two on lap one Tom Arntz hot off his previous week’s Slingshot Tour win grabbed third sport from Heckman going down the backstretch. By lap five Arntz picked off Hauptman with his sites set on Bettler. Lap ten Jim Laubach took over fourth spot as Arntz turned up the steam on Bettler. The last fifteen laps it was anyone’s guess who would come out on top as Bettler and Arntz burned up the asphalt. Fighting an ill handling car due to the bent axle Bettler held on for the win followed by Arntz, Hauptman, Laubach, and Heckman.

 SESELY, ARNTZ, MCGILL, VIVONA MAKE THEIR PRESENCE KNOW AT

GREEN FLAG DRIVING EXPERIENCE BORGERS OCTOBERFEST RND. 4..

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., October 14th, 2012:  A record field of eighty four cars jammed the Borgers pits to overflowing on this crisp, cool mid October Saturday in the Poconos.

It only took a few laps for Anthoney Sesely to show the Borgers regulars the way around in Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprint competition at Borgers Speedway. Sesely led the field to turn one followed by Don Zrinski and Mike Tidaback. By lap two Rob Vivona was already in second spot in his Dirt 600 Sprint and took chase on Sesely. As the duo pulled away from the rest of the field Vivona tried to catch the high flying Sesely but it was not to be. Sesely took the win in his first start at Borgers Speedway followed by Vivona, Tidaback, Don Zrinski, and Jason Hentrich.

For Tom Arntz the past few weeks have been nothing but frustration at Borgers Speedway. A number of strong runs ended in mechanical breakdowns and Tom just could not get the monkey off his back. Tonight that would all change. Justin Thompson blasted the twenty three car field into turn one followed by Kyle Gruber and Tom Arntz. Coming out of turn two Arntz made the pass on Gruber for second spot with his sights on Thompson. Three time OctoberFest winner Kurt Bettler soon secured fourth spot as the leaders opened a slight lead. By lap five Al Hauptman joined the lead pack and a five car “Battle Royale” for the lead was shaping up. You could have thrown a blanket over the top four cars with Hauptman a half car length behind. With visions of his first checkered flag at Borgers Speedway Arntz turned up the steam and a misjudgment by Thompson in turn three brought out the caution. This put Arntz in the lead on the lap twenty restart with Bettler second and Danny Buccafusca third. The remaining five laps Bettler was glued to Arntz’s rear bumper but Arntz was not to be shaken and took his first win at Borgers Speedway and a national tour title as well. Bettler finished a close second followed by Buccafusca, Hauptman, and Gruber.

Once again the Junior Slingshots put on a fantastic show in their National Tour Event. Ryan Quackenbush led going into turn one followed by Brandon McGill, and Dakota Barlet. Lap two McGill made the pass on Quackenbush for the lead and never looked back. In the closing laps Dylan Hoch made the pass on Barlet for third. With the checkered flag waving it was McGuill, Quackenbush, Hoch, Barlet, and Dakota Cobler.

Rob Vivona led every lap to win his fourth straight Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints followed by Bobby Butler, Mike Fillbrunn, Joe Agnello, David Beiler, and Mark Yoder.

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., October 6th, 2012:  “Three in a row is awesome but the one we really want is the big one next week,” Kurt Bettler referring to next week’s AllStar Slingshot Tour race at Borgers Speedway. Heat winner Al Hauptman led Bettler and Tom Arntz to turn one at the drop of the green. As the pack roared down the backstretch Bettler was immediately challenging Hauptman for the lead. By lap three Jim Laubach got by Arntz for third and joined the hunt for the lead. Completing lap five Bettler made a bid fpr the lead in turn four and came out ahead. As Bettler widened his lead a fierce battle was brewing between Hauptman and Arntz for second spot. Lap after lap with Arntz glued to Hauptman’s rear bumper Arntz made the pass for second with five to go. By this time Bettler had opened a straightaway lead and Arntz had to settle for second followed by Hauptman, Jim Laubach, Scott Dinin, and Tom Hennessey.

Rob Vivona remained undefeated in Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints leading every lap to take the win over Mike Fillbrunn and Joe Agnello.

With one win each in Hoosier Racing tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints Rob Vivona and Don Zrinski were set for another showdown on the Borgers asphalt. Mechanical trouble forced Zrinski to scratch from the feature but Vivona still had some quality chauffeurs to deal with. At the drop of the green it was Mike Tidaback, Rob Vivona, and Louie Horvath in the Fillbrunn 66 roaring into turn one. Vivona made quick work of Tidaback on lap two taking the lead as Jason Hentrich took chase on Horvath. Lap four Hentrich made the pass on Horvath for third and had Tidaback in the crosshairs. Hentrich, who has been getting faster each week turned up the steam on Tidaback and a wheel to wheel battle for second spot went into high gear. Hentrich was relentless and did not miss a beat getting by Tidaback for second with five laps to go. Out front the finely tuned Metz Machine was flawless as Vivona took his second win of the OctoberFest series. Hentrich finished a strong second followed by Tidaback, Horvath, Stephen Boland, Joe Agnello, and Don Zrinski.

It did not take long for Junior Slingshot newcomers Dakota Barlet, Brandon McGill, and Dylan Hoch to take to the Borgers asphalt. Dakota Barlet jumped to an early lead followed by Hoch and McGuill.

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., September 29th, 2012:  Kurt Bettler and Rob Vivona remain undefeated but Don Zrinski kept Vivona from taking the “Pick Pap’s Pocket” bonus by keeping Vivona from victory lane in TQ Midgets.

Once again Rob Vivona showed his dominance in Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints. Vivona jumped to an early lead followed by Louie Horvath and Joe Agnello. Lap two a hard charging Mark Yoder made the pass on Agnello for third and locked into a three way battle with Vivona and Horvath for the lead. The trio set a blistering pace and at the half way mark Yoder made the pass for second. Yoder with his sights set on Vivona turned up the steam but Vivona would prove to be too strong taking his second OctoberFest win. Yoder was second followed by Joe Agnello, Bobby Butler, Horvath, Paul Quear who celebrated his 82nd birthday today and Mike Fillbrunn.

Rob Vivona started on the pole in Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints with the “Pick Pap’s Pocket “bonus in reach. Vivona was fast from the drop of the green, very fast but Don Zrinski had other ideas. In a wheel to wheel battle Vivona and Zrinski swapped the lead numerous times during the early stages with Zrinski taking the lead for good on lap eight. Mike Tidaback and Bobby Charlier were in striking distance but never a serious threat. As the laps wound down vivona tried every trick in the book to get by the “Crafty Veteran “Zrinski but it was not to be. Zrinski snatched the win and kept Vivona from collecting Pap’s bonus. Mike Tidaback was third followed by Charlier, Joe Agnello, Mark Yoder, Bobby Butler, and Louie Horvath.

In All-Star Slingshots Kurt Bettler, Greg Zellman, Tom Arntz led the field to turn one. On lap three Arntz made the pass on Zellman for second and took chase on Bettler. Lap seven Arntz and Zellman tangled in turn three which put Hunter Smith and David McCullough behind Bettler on the restart. Lap thirteen found a hard charging Al Hauptman and Tom Arntz making a dash from the rear into second and third. As Bettler extended his lead Hauptman and Arntz locked into a torrid battle for second spot. With the laps ticking off Bettler was not to be caught and Hauptman edged out Arntz at the finish line. Smith was third followed by Zellman, Rusty Myers, McCollough, Jim Conroy, and Tom Hennessey.

Borger Bits.

Sophie Azzalina made her first appearance as Lil. Ms. Borgers in victory lane with Cody Quagliato winner of the Kid Kart Back To School 25. Sophie will preside as Lil Ms Borgers for the remainder of OctoberFest. Meredith Howell who took a violent flip in the Kid Kart feature got back in her car and took a few laps after the Kid Kart feature to a standing ovation by the fans in the pits and grandstands.

Brad Hinkleman appears to be unstoppable in Champ Kart racing and will be a favorite in the upcoming Champ Kart Fall Brawl $500 to win show October 13. With car counts raising a total of 54 cars saw action in Saturdays racing. Louie Horvath making his first appearance took well to the asphalt with bad luck once again rearing its ugly head.

BETTLER BEST IN ALL-STAR SLINGSHOTS.. VIVONA SWEEPS TQ'S AND WINGLESS DIRT SPRINTS ROUND ONE OF GREEN FLAG DRIVING EXPERIENCE BORGERS ASPHALT OCTOBERFEST 2012...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., September 23rd, 2012:  Bettler Best In All-Star Slingshots. Vivona Sweeps TQ’s and Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints Round One of Green Flag Driving Experience Borgers Asphalt OctoberFest 2012.

Kurt Bettler won the last race on dirt at Borgers Speedway in 2011 but it did not take him long to make the adjustment to asphalt and put the Scott Miller owned 66 in victory lane in All-Star Slingshot action. The Hammer Down Dyno Services mount was tuned to perfection as Bettler made his presence known in round one competition.

Coming of a heat win it was Bettler first to turn one followed by Al Hauptman, Kyle Gruber, and Jim Laubach. Lap eight Laubach made the pass on Gruber for third and Bettler and Hauptman battled for the lead. As laps ticked off the positions stayed the same with Bettler taking the win followed by Hauptman, Laubach, Gruber, and Mike Lapicki.

When you think Rob Vivona’s season can’t get any better it just does as Rob make a clean sweep of the Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints and Tq/Asphalt Sprint mains.

Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints saw Vivona jump to an early lead with last week’s feature winner Joe Agnello hot on his tail. Borgers Speedway Dirt 270 multi feature winner and West End Fair Nationals winner Steve Walters made his first appearance in a 600 Sprint and soon took up the chase. Agnello kept the pressure on Vivona but ran out of laps with Vivona taking the round one checkered flag followed by Agnello, Walters, and Mike Fillbrunn.

A record field of eleven Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints led by Don Zrinski took the green with Shaun Carrig winning the drag race to turn one followed by Don Zrinski and Mike Tidaback. Carrig’s lead was to be short lived as Zrinski took over on lap two. On a lap seven Carrig regain the lead in a fierce battle for the front spot. While all this action was taking place up front Rob Vivona, in the Metz Racing Rides For Rent 01, was on the move charging into third spot. One lap later Vivona made the pass on Zrinski for second and had Carrig in sight. One more lap and Vivona screamed into the lead. In the closing laps Bruce Leote and Jason Hentrich made the move to second and third. As Vivona opened a slight lead the the race for second spot became a real barn burner as Leote turned up the heat on Carrig. As the checkered flag fell on Vivona Carrig barely nose out Leote at the finish followed by Hentrich, and Don Zrinski.

With the threat of rain some TQ’s that were expected did not make the trip and should be on hand next week. Judging by the outstanding performance put on by the TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints today the Glory Days of Pine Brook are in sight.

AGNELLO, VANHORN, ROGERS NEW BORGERS WINNERS.

HAUPTMAN REPEAT WINNER....

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., September 15th, 2012:  Joe Agnello, Tim VanHorn, and Marc Rogers visited Borgers Speedway victory lane for the first time while the Quarter Midgets came “Thundering In.”

A total of twelve Quarter Midgets broke ground in the initial test of what will be a tremendous addition to the weekly racing excitement at Borgers Speedway. The powerful Quarter Midgets caught on quick to the newly created mini oval and the response was unanimous. “We Love It”

Speedway owner Glenn Borger, “the Quarter Midgets are a welcome addition to our family or racers at Borgers Speedway. I was very impressed with the skill and professionalism these racers and their parents showed. We are looking for big things to happen with the Quarter Midgets in the future at Borgers Speedway.”

Joe Agnello has been one of Borgers Speedway’s most loyal competitors both in Wingless 600 Sprints and in his son Joey’s Kid Kart racing career. While son Joey has been a multi feature winner in the Kid Karts victory lane at Borgers for Joe sr. has always been elusive. Today that would all change.

At the drop of the green in Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints it was Mike Fillbrunn first to turn one followed by Joe Agnello and Marc Yoder. Soon a wheel to wheel battle would develop between Fillbrunn and Agnello with Agnello ducking under Fillbrunn going into turn one on lap twelve for the lead. Fillbrunn hung on Agnello’s rear bumper the remaining laps but Agnello was not to be shaken as he took his first Borgers checkered flag. Fillbrunn was second followed by Yoder.

Tim VanHorn was the Borgers Speedway Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modified point champion but a visit to victory lane had not been notched in his record book. VanHorn jumped to an early lead over Shannon Maustellar and led every lap to take his first win.

In Hoosier Racing tires TQ’s Marc Rogers led every lap to take his first win.

All Star Slingshots saw Al Hauptman take the lead going into turn one with Steve Heckman on his right side. The two veteran racers raced side by side the first ten laps until Hauptman opened a slight lead. As the laps wound down Heckman tried to snatch first place from Hauptman but it was not to be. Hauptman took his second win of the year followed by Heckman, Tom Hennessey, Doc Lapicki, and Justin Zucal.

Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints… Joe Agnello, Mike Fillburn, Marc Yodere.

Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modifieds… Tim VanHorn, Shannon Maustellar.

Hoosier Racing Tires TQ Midgets. Marc Rogers.

SOPHIE AZZALINA NAMED LITTLE MISS BORGERS AS BORGERS

FUTURE STARS REV UP FOR BACK TO SCHOOL KID KART 25...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., September 12th, 2012:  The excitement is growing as the Kid Kart Racers gear up for the First Annual Back To School Kid Kart 25 September 29 during week number two of Green Flag Driving Experience Borgers Speedway Asphalt OctoberFest 2012.

A “Who’s Who” in Kid Kart Racing is expected to take the green flag during this first ever event. Racers already signed up include Borgers 2012 Kid Kart Point Champion Meredith Howell, Liam O.Connor, Collin O’Connor, Cody Quagliato, Tommy Kendel, Alyssa Waldman, and Ben Richards. Joey Agnello who is recovering from a recent racing accident will be Grand Marshall for the event and issue the command “Ladies and Gentlemen Start Your Engines.”

There will be an autograph session, Driver interviews, and goodie bags for all the competitors capped off by a 25 lap feature event. This event will be run during the Big Car portion of the night to insure maximum exposure for the kids.

Sophie Azzalina has been named Lil. Ms Borgers Speedway for the event and will present trophies to all the drivers in victory lane. Sophie, a seven year old second grader from Saylorsburg, Pa., is no stranger to Borgers Speedway Victory Lane as she has shared victory lane honors with her brothers Zac and Brandon. The Azzalina brothers, who are both accomplished Wingless 600 Sprint drivers, have won numerous feature events in Slingshots and Wingless 600 Sprints during the dirt days at Borgers. While Borgers Speedway has had numerous Ms. Borgers Speedways throughout the years Sophie will be the first Lil. Ms. Borgers.

Another young lady playing a big part in this event will be 12 year old Kaylee O’Connor. Kaylee will be in the starter’s stand assisting the flag man during this race. Kaylee will throw the green flag starting the race and give the half way, two to go, one to go, and all important checkered flag.

Plan on being at Borgers Speedway September 29 to see the great driving talents of these kids who will guarantee a bright future for racing for years to come at Borgers Speedway. Racing greats such as Billy Pauch Jr., Ryan Smith, and Ryan Bohlke scored their first feature wins at Borgers Speedway. Which one of the kids will be next?

Saylorsburg, PA., September 12th, 2012:  Little Borgers Ready To Take Flight as JPL Synthetic Performance Lubricants, and Strapped In Racing Magazine Join Sponsor List For Green Flag Driving Experience Borgers Asphalt OctoberFest 2012.

With the addition of the Kart Road Course and Infield Mini Oval Borgers Speedway may soon need to change its name to Borgers Speedway Motorsports Park. The water barriers and cones have been delivered and Borgers Karting Director Dan Shupp has set up the infield road course. All Karters will be allowed to test the course two at a time during the early practice session at 1:15 p.m. Testing will also continue after the day’s events.

The action will then shift to the Borgers Mini Oval as the Light 160 and Light World Formula Quarter Midgets will take to the newly created oval with practice, heats, and features. This is all in preparation for the November 17 Starz of Tomorrow Borgers Speedway Quarter Midget Nationals.

The Mini Oval also opens the door for Kid Karts and Junior Kart classes who have expressed an interest in running the smaller track. We would like to get some Karts on the Mini Oval and Dan Shupp will evaluate the test session and make the decision when to try some races on the Mini Oval.

Speedway Owner Glenn Borger, “we knew the transition from dirt to asphalt would be tough and we feel we are making a lot of progress in that direction. People are giving us a try and like what they see and we are here to stay. My staff is thinking outside the box and we feel the Mini Oval and Road Course will be a great asset to our Karting and Quarter Midget program.”

As the clock ticks closer to the First Annual Green Flag Driving Experience Borgers Asphalt OctoberFest 2012 the sponsorship list is growing. SPL Performance Lubricants has added $100 to the Karting events and Mike Feltenberger of Strapped In Racing Magazine in celebration of its 10th. Anniversary has kicked in $25 for 10th place finisher in the All-Star Slingshot tour race and $25 for 10th place in the Junior Slingshot tour race.

At last count and growing $4500 in sponsorship money plus another $1000 in parts and gift certificates has been secured for the six race series starting September 22 and running through October.

Special Kart money races are in the planning stages and will be announced shortly.

MIKE LAPICKI WINS FIRST ALL-STAR SLINGSHOT FEATURE AS

BORGERS SPEEDWAY CROWNS JUSTIN ZUCAL, DON ZRINSKI,

ROB VIVONA, AND TIM VANHORN AS 2012 POINT CHAMPIONS..

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., September 2nd, 2012: An evening of high emotion capped the 2012 point season and opened the door for the much anticipated Green Flag Driving Experience Borgers Speedway OctoberFest Series which begins September 22. Gary Conkling and associates at Green Flag Driving Experience have signed on as the prime sponsor of the OctoberFest Series along with fourteen other associate sponsors which will be announced later next week.

In All-Star Slingshot action Tom Hennessey led the field to turn one followed by Mike Lapicki and Scott Dinin. Justin Zucal got past Dinin on lap two but it was Hennessey who was in command. In his best run of the season Hennessey appeared to be headed for his first asphalt win when a blown engine sidelined him on lap five. On the restart it was Lapicki with Dinin hot on his tail. Soon Zucal turned up the steam on Dinin and made the pass for second in the closing laps. Lapicki would prove to be too strong and took his first feature win of 2012 followed by Zucal, Dinin, David Morrell, and Tom Hennessey.

Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints saw Rob Vivona continue his domination. Mike Fiibrunn who has played bridesmaid to Vivona all season finished second followed by Joe Agnello and Jason Hentrick.

Shannon Maustellaer won the Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modifieds.

The Borgers 2012 Point Season ended today with champions crowned in all divisions.

Don “The Snake” Zrinski proved you don’t have to be a kid to be fast at Borgers winning five features and the Hoosier Racing tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprint Championship.

Rob Vivona shared victory lane only with Matt Janisch winning the Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Championship. Vivona who was virtually unbeatable definitely had the best season of his career.

Justin Zucal raced 270 Sprints with his father Ed for many years at Borgers when the track was dirt. Justin switched to the AllStar Slingshots a few years ago and the move proved to be right as he picked up the Borgers 2012 AllStar Slingshot championship.

Tim VanHorn became a steady runner and a man to be reckoned with in the Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modifieds picking up the season championship.

While only one driver can be the winner in each class every driver that competed in each class this year at Borgers is a winner. Everyone gave it their best taking a chance on a new racetrack that had many new challenges. Everyone stood up and met the challenge and the management and staff at Borgers Speedway is proud of every one of you. You were the “Explorers” in a strange new world and all of you are living proof the new world was conquered and we are here to stay. Give yourself a round of applause because you all had a part in the beginning of something big that will get bigger and better each year. To all of the drivers, owners, crews, families, and fans a job well done.

Good to see Joey Agnello at the track looking and feeling good. Joey is very excited about getting back behind the wheel of his Kid Kart.

Racing will continue as normal the next two weeks without point racing. September 22 starts the Green Flag Driving Experience Borgers Speedway OctoberFest series which will run for six weeks. I hope to have details released by late next week. Our web-master is on vacation so the web-site will not be updated until after Wednesday September 5.

Good to see Joey Agnello at the track Saturday. Feeling good and in good spirits. Ready to get back to Kid Kart action.

Dan Shupp laid out the road course after the days races and Joe Agnello did some testing with the Shupp Kart along with Liam and Collin O’Connor. Resutls look very promising.

ZRINSKI, VIVONA, HARMAN HOT AT BORGERS...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., August 25th, 2012:  A race can change in a heartbeat and that is just what happened in Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints at Borgers Speedway Saturday evening . While Blu Metz experienced both “the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat” coming out of turn four on the checkered flag lap Don Zrinski was in the right place at the right time.

At the drop of the green it was Zrinski, Stephen Boland and Rob Vivona to turn one. Vivona brought out the yellow on lap two and it was Metz to third on the restart. It would not take long for a three car battle for the lead developed between Zrinski, Marc Rogers , and Metz. Metz took over the lead when a tangle in turn three between Zrinski and Rogers sent them to the rear. This moved Boland to second behind Metz for the restart. Zrinski and Rogers made the pass on Boland two laps later with their sights on Metz. Lap twenty Rogers got by Zrinski setting up a three car “Battle Royale” between Met, Rogers, and Zrinski. The final five laps proved to be a real “nail biter” with Metz holding off the charge by Rogers. Coming out of turn four on the last lap with the checkered flag waving and victory in site for Metz contact was made resulting in Metz and Rogers spinning to the infield with Zrinski slipping by to take the win. Stephen Boland was second followed by Metz, Rogers, and Vivona.

Jason Harman made it two in a row in All-Star Slingshots but it was not easy task. Harman won the sprint to turn one followed by Kurt Bettler and Al Hauptman. Going into turn two the front runners got together resulting in Bettler and Hauptman going to the rear. On the restart Harman led the way followed by Tom Arntz and Tom Hennessey. Arntz running strong was on the hunt for Harman until a dragging front bumped forced Arntz into a black flag situation. While all this was taking place Bettler and Hauptman were making a strong run from the rear and rejoined the chase on Harman. With Bettler and Hauptman coming on strong there was not enough laps left to catch Harman. Harman took the win followed by Bettler, Hauptman, Ton Hennessey, and Hunter Smith. A post race tech of the top three finishers found everyone legal.

Rob Vivona led every lap to win the Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints over Mike Fillbrunn, Ed Wilberger Sr., Joe Yaccarino, and Joe Agnello.

A very strong run by Ed Wilberger Sr. netted him a third place finish in Dirt 600 Sprints. His best finish of the season.

Stephen Boland looking stronger each week after coming back from his spectacular early season flip in turn one.

Tom Hennessey having a very strong season looks to be a shoe in for third place points in All-Star Slingshots.

First time appearances this season in the All-Star Slingshots by Kurt Bettler, Tom Arntz, Hunter Smith, and David Morrrell made for one of the best Slingshot races of the season.

With one week left in the 2012 point season Don Zrinski has the TQ championship locked up. Mike Fillbrunn still has a slight mathematical chance of catching Rob Vivona in Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints. The battle between All-Star Slingshot point leader Justin Zucal and Jason Harman will go right down to the wire. Tim VanHorn has already won the XCEL 600 Modified championship.

I set up the course and with the help of Borgers Speedway marketing director Brendan OcOnnor and his sons turned some laps.” I think this shows a lot of promise and we will be trying it with the Kid Karts and Juniors after the point season ends.”

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., August 22nd, 2012:  Borgers Speedway Owner Glenn Borger and the staff at Borgers Speedway welcome Ed Pensyl to the Borgers Speedway team. Glenn Borger “ we are pleased to have Ed on the Borgers Speedway team as we expand our plans for the rest of the 2012 season and the 2013 racing season. We have also scheduled a major Quarter Midget event for November 17 and if that race works as we expect we may also schedule another event early in the 2013 season. For that event we will not be able to run our regular program but other then that date our schedule will not change.”

Ed Pensyl has been a prominent figure in Quarter Midget racing for twenty years owning and operating Pensyl Enterprises which deals in quarter midget fabrication and parts supplying. Ed also is a key figure in the West End Fairgrounds Quarter Midget Club.

Co-promoter Bob Snyder, “ I have known Ed for about twenty years and I am certain he will be a great asset to Borgers Speedway not just with the Quarter Midgets but the marketing and future of our speedway. Along with Ed, Brendan OcConnor has also become a very important part of Borgers Speedwy with his expertise in marketing.”

Contrary to rumors circulating we will not change our Three Quarter Midget program. It will continue in the path we have been following this season. Blu Metz, owner of Metz Racing Rides For Rent has guided Borgers Speedway in a direction we feel will bring back Three Quarter Midget racing to it’s glorious past. There are plenty of cars sitting in garages that have been waiting for a local track close to home. Along with Blu’s ideas of keeping the cost of racing in line we feel with our rules package we can achieve our goal of building car counts. People need to know that we are for real and we are here to stay.

S&S Speedways and Hamlin Speedway promoter Randy Smith will be supplying Slingshot Parts and Tires at Borgers Speedway. With the additional racers planning on running our fall series Randy will have the needed parts and tires in stock.

Any Kart or MicroStock racers feel free to talk to Dan Shupp with any set up questions. Dan is owner of Shupp’s Kart Shop and runs Borgers Karting program. Dan will get you in the ball park and supply you with any engine building and karting supplies. You can reach Dan at 484-281-3259.

Plans are well underway for Borgers Asphalt OctoberFest and we have been meeting this week to finalize plans. Sponsorship has been rolling in and a major event sponsor will be announced shortly. The six races series will start September 22 and run through the month of October. There will be one drop week as not to interfere with Lindas Nationals. Bob Snyder, “after last night’s meeting with Glenn everyone is very excited how OctoberFest and plans for the 2013 season are coming together. Glenn has a staff of good people with a lot of good ideas with one common goal to make Borgers Speedway work.”

Karts and MicroStocks will run along with the OctoberFest events. Money races are being planned for the bigger classes.

With tracks closing for the season the gates at Borgers Speedway are open for all racers to give asphalt racing a try. Try it and you just might like it. You won’t have to wash mud off your car.

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., August 18th, 2012:  Due to scheduling conflicts the Hoosier Racing Tires XCEl 600 Modifieds point season ended two weeks earlier than the rest of the divisions at Borgers Speedway. Coming of a fantastic season Tim Van Horn became the first Borgers Speedway Ashphalt Point champion of the 2012 racing season. While Tim came up just shy of a few feature wins consistent top three finishes locked up the season crown for Van Horn.

Scott Washburn took the lead from Kyle Kocher on lap four and went on to win today’s main followed by Kocher, VanHorn, Ronnie Molner, and Shaun Burd.

In Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints Rob Vivona continued his domination to win over Mike Fillbrunn, Ed Wilberger Sr., and Joe Agnello. While Vivona has held the point lead all season with two races to go Fillbrunn is still in striking distance.

Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints saw Don Zrinski make it two in a row adding to his point lead. Zrinski led every lap but did not have an easy time of it as hard charging Marc Rogers stayed glued to Zrinski’s rear bumper. Rogers held on for second spot in his best finish of the year followed by Rob Vivona, Stephen Boland, and Jason Hentrick.

All-Star Slingshots saw the return of Jason Harman to continue his winning ways. Taking a few weeks off to run some big races Harman had an impressive second place finish at the New Reading Fair Nostalgia Nationals. Harman led every lap to take the win over Greg Zellman and Justin Zucal. With two races remaining in the points battle Zucal holds about a 160 lead over Harman.

BORGERS NEWS UPDATES

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., August 14th, 2012:  Plans for the Borgers six race fall series starting September 22 are in full swing. Brendan O’Connor in charge of Borgers marketing has already secured some major sponsorship and more is on the way. We should have most of the details in place by September 1.

Plans are to hold a Borgers Kid Kart Nationals either September 22 or 29 in conjunction with the fall series. We are planning some big events for the future stars of Borgers Speedway which include a 30 lap feature with a tire changing pit stop on the infield, driver interviews, autograph session, plus special awards.

All Big Car feature winners are urged to bring their cars to Victory Lane after the last feature. Photos will be taken and posted on Facebook and the speedway web-site. Hopefully this may allow us to get more winners photos in Area Auto Racing News.

Our goal at Borgers Speedway is to bring back the glory days of Pine Brook Speedway. While nothing will ever replace Pine Brook we are looking at a great new comeback for the TQ’s and MicroStocks which filled the pits of the North Jersey oval each Friday night for many years. Our TQ’s are building and our MicroStock Big Show produced by Don Boonstra and Dave Parker was proof with 35 entries there is a big interest in MicroStock racing. Our goal at Borgers Speedway is to become a home track for TQ’s and MicroStocks providing weekly shows with a good purse and no need to travel long distances with today’s high gas prices.

My right hand man, race director, and chief scorer Darin Bartholomew tried a new race format which worked very well this past week. This allows more time for practice and time between races plus allows us to set definite times. This will be discussed at the driver’s meetings this week and if accepted will be put into place August 25. The format is listed below, please feel free to comment.

11:00 a.m. Gates Open

1:30 p.m. Early Warm-ups for all classes.

2:00 p.m. Kart and MicroStock Driver’s Meeting.

Kart and MicroStock Warm-Ups

Kart and MicroStock Heats.

Early Big Car Warm-Ups.

Kart and MicroStock Features.

Big Car Driver’s Meeting.

Big Car Warm-Ups

Big Car Heats.

Short Break to line up features.

Big Car Features.

Times may vary depending on Kart and MicroStock car counts but the big Car driver’s meeting should not start before 3:30 p.m.

Special thanks to Trina Bechtold and Beth Shupp the girls in the office who did a tremendous job with signing, heat line ups, and payouts for the two complete shows we ran last Saturday. Great job ladies.

Please note. The office will close one half hour after the last feature is checkered flagged. So please pick up your payout and return transponders as soon as possible. Everyone is welcome to hang around afterwards but get your payout taken care of first.

Borger’s Garage is now open for business. Glenn does Pennsylvania car, truck, and trailer inspections so if you need inspection service see Pap and he will take care of you.

Look for more details shortly for the fall series and many exciting plans for the 2013 racing season at Borgers Speedway.

 

ROB VIVONA MAKES BORGERS SPEEDWAY HISTORY.

MATT DEALAMAN, SCOTT WASHBURN, & DON ZRINSKI

SHARE BORGERS VICTORY LANE SPOTLIGHT..

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., August 11th, 2012:  In a history making day at Borgers Speedway, which may not be matched at any other racetrack, Rob Vivona did the impossible. Rob won two Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint heats, two TQ heats, two Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint features, and one TQ feature and came short of winning the second TQ feature when brake problems struck with three laps to go. To top that Rob led every lap of every heat and feature with the exception of the last three laps of the second TQ feature. Vivona piloted the potent F8 Metz Racing TQ while wheeling his own Dirt 600.

Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint action saw Rob Vivona lead every lap to win the makeup feature over Joe Agnello, Mike Fillburn, David Beiler, Mark Yoder.

Vivona repeated his victory in feature two over Mike Fillburn, Joe Agnello, and Joe Yaccarino.

In Hoosier Racing Tires TQ feature one Vivona jumped to an early lead and never looked back. Don Zrinski gave chase to Vivona but had to settle for second followed by Tim Proctor, Darren Schuler, and Mark Rogers.

In the second feature Vivona jumped to an early lead followed by Zrinski and Proctor. Zrinski would run side by side with Vivona a number of times until Zrinski and Proctor slipped by Vivona when his brakes failed with three laps to go. Zrinski took the win followed by Proctor, Vivona, and Darren Schuler. In his first appearance at Borgers Speedway Tim Proctor had a very good day with a second and third place finish.

A strong field of Hoosier Racing tires XCEL 600 Modifieds took starter Chris Walk’s green flag with Tim VanHorn winning the sprint to turn one followed by Kyle Kocher and Scott Washburn. In a bold move Washburn passed Kocher coming out of turn two with his sights set on VanHorn. Lap three Shaun Burd made the pass on Kocher for third. This would turn into a hard fought duel with VanHorn and Washburn and Washburn taking the lead on lap seventeen followed by Burd. Burd turned up the steam but could not catch Washburn. Washburn took the win followed by Burd, VanHorn, BJ Scherff, Kocher, Ronnie Molner, Ricky Raisner Jr., and John Lakatos. Always putting on an exciting show the “fan favorite” XCEL 600 Modifieds with increasing car counts will keep the fans on the edge of their seats in weeks to come.

When the All-star Slingshot of Matt Dealaman pulls into the pits the competiton knows they are in for a real challenge and this week Matt put his father Scott behind the wheel of the 07X. Matt lived up to his reputation of being the “Real Deal” winning both AllStar Sliongshot mains. In feature one Dealaman started on the pole and led lap one followed by Mike Lapicki, and Juston Zucal. By lap three Ton Hennessey moved into third spot. On a restart Hennessey got by Zucal for second and Lapicki regained second two laps later. By halfway Zucal moved to second and put the pressure on Dealaman while father Scott grabbed third. As the checkered flag waved for Matt Zucal would hold on for second followed by Scott Delaman, Ton Hennessey, Mike Lapicki, and Scott Dinin.

In feature two Delaman took the early lead followed by Hennessey, and Scott Dinin. Lap seven Dinin made the move on Hennessey for second putting the pressure on Delaman. As the laps wound down Dinin mounted a strong run on Dealaman but did not have quite enough to catch the red 07. Delaman took his second win of the day followed by Dinin, Tom Hennessey, Ricky Raisner Jr., and Scott Delaman.

Today’s action saw Don Zrinski take the point lead in TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints and Justin Zucal the new leader in All-star Slingshots. Rob Vivona remains leader in Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints while Tim VanHorn holds his lead in XCEL 600 Modifieds.

MOTHER NATURE WINS AT BORGERS

AS POINT RACE TIGHTENS..

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., August 4th, 2012:  With the Karts and MicroStock program pulling off the track and the Open Wheel cars ready to take hot laps the skies opened washing out the remainder of the racing program at Borgers Speedway. Next Saturday August 11, race fans will be treated to a full Kart and MicroStock show plus two complete Dirt 600 Sprints, TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints, and All-star Slingshots consisting of two complete sets of heats and features. There will be no additional grandstand admission.

As the 2012 point season enters it’s final month the point battle in the four open wheel divisions is up for grabs in all divisions.

Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt Sprints finds Matt Janisch holding a slim lead over Don Zrinski with Blu Metz third.

Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints finds Rob Vivona in the lead with a stubborn Mike Fillbrunn within striking distance. Matt Janisch is third.

All-star Slingshots are headed up by Jason Harman with Justin Zucal rapidly closing the gap. Bob Nenstiel, Al Hauptman, and Tom Hennessey are within thirteen points of each other for third spot.

Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modifieds shows Tim VanHorn as the leader by ninety points over Scott Washburn. BJ Scherff is a mere eight points behind for third and Kyle Kocher forty seven points behind Scherff for fourth.

The final five races will prove to be a real nail biter for all divisions which will make Borgers Speedway racing history in crowning the first Asphalt Point Champions.

Regular season points will end on September 1 followed by September 8 and 15 as non point races in preparation for the big Borgers Speedway Fall Spectacular. A six race series will start September 22 and will conclude on October 27. Sponsorship is being secured and details will be released shortly.

With the conclusion of the Fall Spectacular racing will continue into November at Borger Speedway. Speedway owner and promoter Glenn Borger. “Our plans are to race until the snow flies as long as the racers and fans continue to come out. We are looking for big things to happen during the Fall Spectacular as some of the other tracks will be closing down for the season giving their drivers an opportunity to give our asphalt a try. Tire wear which is the big concern has not been a problem and with us allowing the asphalt slicks on the Dirt 600’s many teams are getting at least four races to a right rear. Come try our asphalt and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.”

Borgers Speedway will be running paid practice sessions January 12 and January 26 for anyone preparing for the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bowl or anyone wishing to get a jump start on the 2013 racing season. If our season were to end before the December Indoor races we will schedule a practice day if weather permits.

Al Hauptman won the sprint to turn one in AllStar Slingshots followed by Justin Zucal and Tom Hennessey.

MicroStock Racing is alive and well at Borgers Speedway. When you mention the word MicroStock to racers Don Boonstra and Dave Parker the passion runs high. In the short time of three weeks Boonstra and Parker, both accomplished racers, along with a solid and determined staff put together the MicroStock Big Show at Borgers. With a combined Borgers purse and sponsorship money more then $1200 was up for grabs.

A record breaking field of 35 MicroStocks took to the Borgers Speedway asphalt and put on one of the most exciting shows of the Borgers Asphalt era. Comments such as “Borgers is the Daytona of MicroStock racing” and “the greatest field of Microstocks since the days of Pine Brook and Flemington” were among the many comments heard.

Walt Mueller took the Animal feature followed by John Rakos, Wayne Kremm, Roger Snyder, and Josh Hoser. Tom Ervin bested the World formula Microstocks followed by Jeff Weinecker, Dave Parker, Noel Scheffer, Gary Scheffer.

Borgers Speedway would like to thank everyone involved with the MicroStock program for putting on a fantastic show. Look for more of this great racing in the future. Dave McCollough decided to give the Borgers Speedway asphalt a try and it proved to be a good decision as Dave won his first

AllStar Slingshot feature. Tom Hennessey led the field to the green flag but it was McCollough winning the sprint to turn one followed by Hennessey and Justin Zucal. Zucal got by Hennessey on lap two followed by Greg Zellmen. Zellman made the pass on Zucal for second on lap six and took chase on McCollough. As the laps wound down Zellman closed the gap to about three car lengths but could not catch the high flying McCollough. McCollough took his first win followed by Zellman, Tom Hennessey, Justin Zucal, and Mike Lapicki.

Rob Vivona led every lap to continue his winning ways in Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints. Matt Janisch was second followed by Mike Fillbrunn and Joe Yaccarino.

HALF A CENTURY SEPARATES FIRST TIME FEATURE WINNERS

DANNY BERLITZ AND BILL FORCE SR. AT BORGERS...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., July 14th, 2012:  Sixty five year old Bill Force Sr. was racing long before Danny Berlitz was born but this day these two racers lives interconnected in a big way with Force winning his first TQ feature event at Borgers and Berlitz doing the same in the AllStar Slingshots.

With the paving of Borgers Speedway this past winter racing was starting from the ground up. We know it will be a long haul and one of our goals is to recreat the racing that happened years ago at the Pine Brook Speedway.

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., June 16th, 2012:  Matt Janisch made it win number two in the Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprints but it was not an easy task. Karting standout Ryan Breithoff in his first appearance in a TQ Midget turned in a stellar performance in giving the veteran Janisch a run for the gold. Janisch led the charge to turn one with Blu Metz and Breithoff on his rear bumper. Lap two Breithoff made his presence known grabbing second spot from Metz in turn two. This set up a three battle for the lead with Breithoff getting under Janisch a number of times but not having enough to make the pass. Janisch took starter Bobby Stull’s checkered flag followed by Breithoff, Metz, Stephen Boland, and Mike Trimble.

In Hoosier Racing Tires Dirt Wingless 600 Sprints Rob Vivona led every lap to take the win over Mike Fillbrunn and Jonathon Cortright.

BORGERS SPEEDWAY POINTS ARE NOW ONLINE...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., June 14th, 2012:  Up to date points for TQ/Asphalt Wingless 600 Sprints, Dirt Wingless 600 Sprints, All-Star Slingshots, and XCEL 600 Modifieds for the 2012 racing season are now posted on the speedway web-site www.borgers-speedway.com Click on My Laps on the menu board on the left side of the home page for the latest week by week point information.

Moving into the summer racing season with car counts on the rise special events are in the planning stages which will be announced shortly. Co-promoter Bob Snyder. “We knew the transformation to asphalt would be starting from the ground up and we are pleased where we are at this point. Of course we would like bigger car counts but this is about where we expected to be at this point. By August we feel we will be adding a bunch of cars to the TQ and Sprint divisions and will be where we had projected between 15 to 20 cars or better. We also are expecting to see new faces in the Slingshot and XCEL Modified classes. We also are looking at bringing in some additional classes.”

Speedway owner Glenn Borger. “I have made a major investment in the future of Borgers Speedway. This is my “Field Of Dreams” and we are definitely in it for the long run. The neighbors thought they could stop me but the racing community rallied behind me and we showed them they are not going to stop racing people. I have a staff of workers behind me that have their hearts in Borgers Speedway and we will only get bigger and better.”

The Kart and Micro Stock program is also building strong car counts. Champ Karts have been leading the way with the Karts along with the Kid Kart class. Regular Open Kart classes are also building.

When Pine Brook Speedway closed many people thought the MicroStocks were a thing of the past. Not so at Borgers Speedway. Bob Snyder “We are very pleased with the support we are getting from the MicroStocks noting that two weeks ago we had around 25 cars. The MicroStocks are putting on a tremendous show and if you loved them at Pine Brook you will love them at Borgers.”

Our goal is to make Borgers Speedway the “Pine Brook of the Poconos. “ Pine Brook packed the house with huge fields of TQ’s and MicroStocks and we intend to give those loyal drivers and fans a place to race on a weekly basis with quality racing close to home. Atlantic City is drawing large fields of cars so there is no question there are drivers out there looking for a place to race.”

“With gas prices as high as they are and Borgers being rather close to where Pine Brook was located we are looking to recreate an era of racing that was dear to many people’s hearts right in their backyards.”

Racing starts every Saturday with the Kart and MicroStock show starting at 2:00 p.m. running their show in its entirety. The first Open Wheel warm-up session is held after the Kart and MicroStock heats and the second warm-up session and the Open Wheel show after the Kart and MicroStock features which is usual around 4:00 p.m.

Come enjoy a Saturday of exciting and dust free racing at Borgers Speedway. Take in the races from our spacious grandstand or tail gate in our drive in section. Our food stand offers a complete menu featuring our World Famous Borger Berger. Creature comfort is number one at Borgers with our heated and air conditioned restrooms complete with running water sinks, hand dryers, drinking fountains, and diaper changing stations. No dirty, stinky Port O Johns at Borgers.

 

LEOTE, VIVONA, HARMAN, WASHBURN

FAMILIAR FACES IN BORGER'S VICTORY LANE..

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., June 9th, 2012:  Bruce Leote made his second trip to Borger’s Speedway victory lane in Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprint action. From the drop of the green it was a three car battle for the lead with Leote, Rob Vivona, and Don Zrinski. As the top three battled side by side the veteran Don Zrinski made the pass on lap ten for second place. The remaining fifteen laps produced the hardest fought action in TQ racing this season at Borger’s. With Zrinski on Leote’s tail the laps ticked off with Leote edging Zrinski at the checkered flag. Rob Vivona, Glenn Heyerin, and Joe Prybelinski rounded out the top five.

Rob Vivona showed his rear bumper to the rest of the Hoosier Racing Tires Dirt Wingless 600 Sprints with Mike Fillbrunn and Jon Cortright in hot pursuit.

BORGER'S 600 SPRINTS AND TQ'S

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., June 7th, 2012:  Borger's speedway is looking at ways to help keep the expense of racing under control and put the fun back in racing. What we have found is the D25 tire that 600s are using that is readily available wears out too quickly. The harder D35 tire that Hoosier has on their website has been discontinued. The only real option is to allow the use of slicks to give teams an option of running a tire that can last for several weeks. Borgers Speedway is planning to transitioning to pavement tires for the dirt 600 micro sprint division. We have decided to allow the use of an LC5 Hoosier slick on the right rear as well as slicks on the other corners. Slicks will not be mandated so anyone with a supply of dirt tires can race them and teams from dirt tracks can come and race with their dirt tires. Teams can mix and match slick and dirt tires on their cars. for example a pair of slicks on the rear and dirt tires up front or any combination will be permitted. The slicks will not be allowed for one race weeks to give teams who have already purchased dirt tires time to use up what they have.

After being contacted by several TQ teams regarding the cost of racing Borgers Speedway is going to mandate the use of the factory rev limiter settings in the TQ division as well as using the Atlantic City indoor fuel specifications where exotic fuels are not permitted. The track is doing this in an effort to keep the cost of racing in line and help put the fun back in racing. If engine RPM’s are kept in check it will hopefully prevent engine failures and add longevity to one of each team’s largest single expenses, which is their engine program. The rev limiter provision will be a work in progress until a solid number can be established for each year of engine. If it is found that an engine configuration has a significant advantage an adjustment will be made to help keep everyone competitive. this isn’t any re-invention of the wheel. the Xcell Modifieds and 600 Micro sprints have had rev limiter specifications in place for years. The track is giving a two week grace period to teams to adjust to these rules.

Doug Borger will work with track officials on doing both fuel and rev limiter tech.

Each of the divisions appear to have a bit of a gentlemen’s agreement that has been helping everyone remain competitive and save money with regard to tires. We haven’t seen teams regularly putting on more than one sticker tire per race meet. Management of the speedway hopes to see that trend continue. It keeps costs in line when a team doesn’t feel like they need to put on 4 sticker tires each week in order to have a chance to win a race. as long as teams are following this guideline no specific rule limiting tires will be put in place.

The goal is to keep the cost of racing in line. We all want to have a chance to compete and win races. If it can be done in a way that is economical hopefully Borger's Speedway will attract more teams to try out the pavement and increase car counts in all divisions. Keeping the cost of racing in line is truly the objective. If anyone has suggestions for further ways to help contain the high cost of racing please bring them forth.

Saylorsburg, PA., June 2nd, 2012:  A first time winner and three repeat winners graced Borger's victory lane on a crisp, cool Saturday ushering in the summer racing season at Borger’s Speedway.

Darren Schuler became a first time winner in the Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Wingless Asphalt 600 feature event.

BORGER'S TIRE RULE

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., May 27th, 2012:  There is absolutely no truth to the rumor going around that Borgers Speedway will be allowing Asphalt Slicks to be used starting in two weeks in the Wingless Dirt 600 Sprint class. Borgers Speedway would never change a rule like this without first discussing it with the drivers. Adjusting to the asphalt surface is a work in progress and so far tire wear has not been an issue. We are still racing on a green track and as the surface wears in changes could be made in the future to adjust. If at some point a change were to be made this would be phased in over a period of time to allow drivers to use the tires they have.

Our purpose of the Wingless Dirt 600 class is to allow a competitor that races at other tracks the opportunity to give Borgers a try with making a very minimal amount of changes to the car and not having to buy a set of tires just to try the track. If at some point tire wear would become excessive, which at this point is no more and in many cases less then tire wear that some dirt tracks are experiencing we will address the issue.

Also to clarify any misunderstanding pit passes and entry fee from the May 26 rainout will be honored one time within the next four races instead of the normal two race procedure. We understand people are traveling a great distance in some cases and can not always make it in the two week period.

Keep in mind Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints, TQ/Wingless Asphalt 600 Sprints, All-Star and Junior Slings, and XCEL 600 Modifieds are guaranteed at least $20 even if you don’t take the green plus $200 to win regardless of car count and up to $300 to win with car count. Junior Slingshots are excluded from the $200 to win.

 

MOTHER NATURE TAKES THE CHECKERED FLAG AT BORGER'S

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., May 26th, 2012:  With 70 plus cars signed into the pits at Borgers Speedway Mother Nature turned out to be the only person to visit victory lane Saturday May 26. The largest field of the season had just started heats when the first severe cell hit the speedway. The storm knocked out power in the Saylorsburg area and the speedway generator also took a lightning strike tripping the breakers. Track crews had just dried the track as the power came back on and the area was hit by another severe storm canceling the show.

With only three heats completed management decided to scrub the entire show and start over next week. All entry fees will be good for next week only. Hold on to your pit pass wrist band as they must be used in the next four weeks instead of the normal two weeks.

Racing resumes next Saturday June 2 with Kart and Micro Stock practice at 2:00 p.m. followed by their heats and features.

Following the Karts and Micro Stocks the Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints, TQ/Asphalt Wingless 600 Sprints, All-Star Slingshots, and XCEL 600 Modifieds take to the track for their show. All Big Car classes are guaranteed $200 to win regardless of car count and up to $300 to win with car count.

Saylorsburg, PA., May 24th, 2012:  After consulting with a number of drivers this past week Borgers Speedway has decided to change to a 63 inch rear tread width. This will be measured 63 inches from outside of the left rear tire to the outside of the right rear tire.

 

JANISCH SWEEPS SPRINTS & TQ'S. HARMAN & SCHERFF REPEAT.

MASKER FIRST TIME WINNER AT BORGER'S...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., May 19th, 2012:  To say Matt Janisch was hot on this hot afternoon is putting it mildly. Janisch swept the Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints and then returned to victory lane in the Three Quarter Midget feature.

Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints were first on Janisch’s hit list as Mike Fillbrunn coming off his first heat win lead the field to turn one. Soon Janisch was on Fillbrunn’s tail followed by Rob Vivona. Fillbrunn held the lead until lap 4 when Janmisch took control. As Janisch pulled away Fillbrunn and Vivona duked it out for second spot with Vivona making the pass at the half way mark. In the closing laps Vivona closed the gap on Janisch but Janisch held strong and took starter Bobby Stull’s checkered Flag. Vivona finished second followed by Fillbrunn, Joe Yaccarino, and Joe Agnello.

Stephen Boland took one of the most spectacular flips in the history of Borger’s Speedway in heat one. Boland was uninjured but now has the distinction of being the first person to flip on the Borger’s Speedway asphalt.

If winning the Dirt 600 Sprints was not enough Janisch came back to repeat his feat in the Hoosier Racing Tires TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprint main. Bruce Leote led the charge to turn one followed by Blu Metz and Matt Janisch. Janisch picked off Metz the next lap and had his sights set on Leote. As the two leaders battled side by side Janisch took over the lead on lap twelve and held it to the finish. Leote held the runner up spot followed by Metz, Rob Vivona, and Darren Schuler.

Jason Harman scored back to back wins in All Star Slingshots repeating his previous week’s win. Harman took the lead on lap one followed by Greg Zellman and Bob Nenstiel. As Harman increased his lead the battle was for second with Zellman and Nenstiel. Harman led every lap to take the win followed by Zellman, Nenstiel, and Mike Moyer.

Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modifieds saw BJ Scherff return to victory lane for the second time this season. Right from the get go it was a Scherff-Washburn battle for the lead with the leaders swapping spots numerous times. In the closing laps Wasburn got into a lapped car on the backstretch but on the restart quickly moved through the pack to challenge Scherff. Scherff took the win followed by Washburn, Tim VAnHorn, Kyle Kocher, and Shawn Horning.

Isaih Masker took the Junior Slingshot win.

Next Saturday May 26 Borgers Speedway will have a Hot Dog and T-Shirt give away. Everyone entering the pits and the grandstand area will receive a ticket and numbers will be called out throughout the day for Hot Dogs and T-Shirts.

LEOTE, HARMAN, WASHBURN FIRST TIME BORGER'S WINNERS...

VIVONA THREE TIME WINNER...

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., May 12th, 2012:  The transition from dirt to asphalt at Borgers Speedway has proved not to be near as drastic as many had feared. Rob Vivona said in victory lane last week the changes are very minimal. It is basically the dirt set up with a few tweaks here and there. This is why Borgers management created the Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints in order for a driver to take their car off the dirt and put it on asphalt with no major changes in set up and running dirt tires.

Bruce Leote took a Wingless 270 Sprint and converted it into a Three Quarter Midget and became the “Star of the Show” in the Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless TQ/Asphalt 600 Sprint feature. Leote was fast right off the trailer. In fact two tenths of a second faster then the rest of the field in practice. At the drop of the green it was Leote in the lead going to turn one followed by Blu Metz and Josh Dalrymple. As Metz and Dalrymple put the pressure on Leote it soon became a Leote and Metz battle for the lead. By lap five Brett Conkling made the pass for third and the top four positions stayed the same until lap nine when the yellow waved. A jumped start on the restart by Metz sent him back two spots moving Conkling to second and Dalrymple third. Metz driving like a man possessed made his way back to second in the closing laps but did not have enough for Leote. Leote took the checkered flag followed by Metz, Conking, Dalrymple, and Salvini.

In Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless Dirt 600 Sprints it was Rob Vivona making it three in a row. Vivona held the lead from the pole and never had a serious challenge. The real battle was for second place. Joe Agnello in his first race of the season drove a masterful race holding off a hard charging Jon Cortright, Jason Hentrick, Mike Fillbrunn, and Stephen Boland. Vivona led every lap of the nonstop race.

Jason Harman became the third different All-Star Slingshot winner in as many weeks. Ricky Raisner Jr. brought the field to the green flag and it was Raisner, Bob Nenstiel, and Harman. By lap three Harmon made the pass for second and last place starter JR Fulper was on the move. Lap four Harman took the lead as Fulper moved to third. Lap eight Fulper made the pass for second and had his sites set on Harman. As the laps wound down Fulper put the pressure on Harman but did not have enough to keep Harman from victory lane. Raisner finished third followed by Ton Henessey, and Mike Moyer.

Another first time winner in Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modifieds found Scott Washburn in Borgers victory lane. Washburn held on to the lead for every lap of the non stop race and was chased to the finish line by Kermit Horning, Tim VanHorn, Lyele Kocher, and Shawn Horning.

STOCKHAM, SCHERFF, FULPER, VIVONA BEST AT BORGER’S…

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., May 5th, 2012:  The long haul from Syracuse, New York proved worthwhile as Chris Stockham took his first Hoosier Racing Tires Three Quarter Midget feature win on the Borger’s Speedway asphalt. Zack Martini led the first four laps with Stockham glued to his back bumper until lap five when Stockham made the pass for the lead. Stockham was not to be caught as he took the Blu Metz owned 01 to its first feature win. Martini was second.

The Hoosier Racing Tires XCEL 600 Modifieds lived up to their reputation of nonstop excitement as BJ Scherff made his first visit to Borgers Speedway victory lane. Last week’s winner Aaron Bowes led the field to the green flag but it was Doug Borger first to turn one. As Bowes took up chase Scott Washburn joined the hunt by lap four. By halfway Scherff was making his presence known as he joined the race for the lead. With two laps to go it looked like a win for Borger but Scherff had other ideas. As Borger slowed a bit and the leaders bunched up Scherff made a daring move in turn three and came out of turn four in the lead. Scherff took his first ever features win followed by Borger, Washburn, and Bowes. TQ feature winner Chris Stockham rounded out the top five.

All-Star Slingshot racer JR Fulper is no stranger to Borger’s Speedway victory lane but today would be his first win on asphalt. Bob Nenstiel led the way to turn one followed by Ricky Raisner Jr., and JR Fulper. Raisner took the lead from Nenstiel on lap four followed by Fulper. Raisner and Fulper staged a side by side battle until the halfway mark when Fulper took the lead. Fulper took the win followed by Raisner, Nenstiel, Steve Heckman, and Mike Moyer.

Rob Vivona had fun on the Borger’s Speedway dirt and is still having fun on the Borger’s Speedway asphalt as Vivona repeated his opening day win in the Hoosier Racing Tires Wingless 600 Dirt Sprints. Vivona held the lead from the pole and led every lap but the real battle was for second place. Jason Hentrick and Joe Yaccarino staged a hard fought battle for second place with Hentrick coming out on top in the end. In the closing laps Mark Fillbrunn made the pass on Yaccarino for third. Earlier in the day Filllbrunn, who has been plagued with misfortune, broke a motor mount and held the motor in place with a two by four block of wood and tie straps. The temporary fix worked as Fillbrunn finished third followed by Yaccarino and Ed Willberger Sr.

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., April 28th, 2012: They came from Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut , and New Hampshire but Tidabeck, Vivona, Dealaman, and Bowes would be the first quartet to enter Borgers Speedway victory lane.

Former Atlantic City Boardwalk Bowl winner Mike Tidabeck took home top honors in the Hoosier Racing tires Three Quarter Midgets. Tidabeck brought the field down to starter Bobby Stull’s green flag and won the sprint to turn one. Rick Salvini and AJ Fuge took up chase until Salvini clipped a tire in turn three bringing out the caution on lap six. On the restart AJ Fuge took over second followed by Zack Martini. In the closing laps Martini got by Fuge but could not mount a serious challenge on Tidabeck, Tidabeck would take his first Borgers feature win followed by Martini, Fuge and Salvini.

Rob Vivona proved to be masterful on dirt and he continued his winning ways on Asphalt as he took the Hoosier Racing Tires Dirt 600 Sprint main. Vivona started on the pole and led every lap and lapped the field to take the win. Stephen Boland and Ed Wilber took up the chase for second until lap four when Mike Boland made the pass on Wilberger for third. The order would remain the same with Vivona taking the win followed by Steve Boland, Mike Boland, Ed Wilberger, and Mike Fillburn.

It was win number twenty for Matt Delaman in All-star Slingshot action. Ricky Raisner Jr. held the lead for the first five laps with Dealaman cranking up the steam. Dealaman got by Raisner on lap six followed by Steve Heckman. Two laps later Jason Harman made the pass on Raisner for third and had his sights set on Heckman. Harman got by Heckman for second on lap eighteen but came up short on Dealaman. Delaman took the checkered flag followed by Harman, Heckman, Raisner, and Bob Nenstiel.

Aaron Bowes notched two Hoosier Racing Tires Xcel 600 Sportsman wins last season and started 2012 with a win in the Hoosier Racing Tires Xcel 600 Modifieds. Bowes led every lap from the pole but the win was not to be an easy one. From the drop of the green Butch Getz was glued to Bowes rear bumper as Doug Borger joined the hunt.

Only Snell sa2005 or newer helmets will be allowed. They specified this as extremely critical and no exceptions will be made.

Fire suits and gloves must be worn on all cars except the Open Karts. Cage Karts drivers must have a fire suit, gloves, and five point harness.

Neck collars are required for all drivers in all divisions. A Hans type device is highly recommended but not mandatory for all non Kart divisions.

All restraints must be five point harnesses and must be SFI Dated.

We would like to see some sort of restraint device over the top of the roll cage on all Wingless Open Wheel Cars to keep the driver inside the cage if the belts come loose. This is not mandatory at this point but we will discuss this during the practice sessions.

Minor’s releases are required for anyone 18 years and younger. We would like to have both parents signature but we will accept the parent who holds legal guardianship.

BORGER'S PAVING COMPLETE!

Co-Promoter & Media Contact  Bob Snyder  bobsnyderphoto@enter.net

Saylorsburg, PA., April 6th, 2012: The top coat of asphalt and the paving of the infield at Borgers Speedway have been completed and all is set for the first of two practice days Saturday April 14 and April 21 at 1:00 p.m. If there is no weather issues with the practice days the season opener is set for April 28. “With the forecast of cold temperatures and rain next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this is what the asphalt needs to properly set” remarked speedway owner Glenn Borger. “Northeast Site Contractors did a fantastic job.”

Speedway owner Glenn Borger, “It took us an extra week with the weather and the additional paving of the infield but I feel it is worth the wait. With the infield paved there will be no issues with dirt being drug onto the track from the infield.”

Creature comfort at Borgers Speedway will be a major concern for the 2012 racing season and speedway owner Glenn Borger has spared no expense. Borgers Speedway will have restrooms like no other racetracks in the area. Entering the restroom area race goers will find a spacious room with drinking fountains and diaper changing stations. This room will lead to large and well lighted men’s and women’s restrooms. The restrooms will be heated and air conditioned with two running water sinks in each restroom. Four separate stalls in each restroom and a handicap accessible stall should assure no long lines. Exhaust fans and a tile floor have also been installed. Glenn Borger, “Our restrooms will be more like a “5 Star Hotel” then the deplorable conditions you find at most racetracks. People will be in for a long day at Borgers Speedway and they deserve the very best.”

The paving of Borgers Speedway has opened up many challenges and many new opportunities. Co-promoter Bob Snyder, “My roots are in dirt track racing and I will always love the dirt tracks but times are changing. When I was a kid we did not care about getting dirty at a race. In fact the dirtier we got the more we loved it. At Borgers Speedway the neighbors forced us to pave the track but that may in the long run prove to be a blessing in disguise. This is just the start and big things will be happening at Borgers Speedway. We have something unique that no one else has, a 1/7 mile asphalt speedway. We also have an opportunity to build a spectator base which is almost non-existent at other small car tracks. New spectators coming into racing do not want to sit in the dust and the dirt. They also want creature comfort and this is what we will give them at Borgers Speedway.”

The two practice sessions Saturday April 14 and 21 will be free spectator admission to the grandstand. A pit pass of $20 will be required for anyone entering the pits but there will be no car entry fee.
