Ponderosa Speedway Will Now Be Idle Until Colston Paving 40 on Friday August 24
Junction City, KY- July 30, 2012- Ponderosa Speedway track promoter Larry Yantz and co-promoters Chad and Sarah Yantz are now going to take the next three weekends off before returning to action on Friday August 24 with the Colston Paving 40 at the 3/8 mile D-shaped red clay oval better known as “Kentucky’s Baddest Bullring”. The reason for the layoff is due to low spectator turnouts over the past couple of weeks and hopefully this time off will allow folks to recover some financially from the windfalls of the month of July and getting children ready to start back to school.
The next scheduled event at Ponderosa Speedway will be on Friday August 24 and that event will feature the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Late Models racing for $2,500 to win, along with the Clayton Homes Modifieds racing for $600 to win. Joining the Late Models and Modifieds will be the Ken Towery’s Auto and Tire Care Sportsman racing for $300 to win and Bob Allen Motor Mall Front Wheel Drives racing for $200 to win (four entries or more). The Late Model, Modified, and Sportsman will time trial, while Front Wheel Drives will pill draw for starting positions. All drivers will need to sign in at the registration window up arrival to the track and RACEceivers are mandatory in all divisions.
Ponderosa Speedway last raced on Friday July 27 and feature event winners included Brad Neat of Dunnville, KY in Good Neighbor Pharmacy Late Models, Tommy Bailey of Corbin, KY in Clayton Homes Modifieds, Bartley Grant of Berea, KY in Ken Towery’s Auto and Tire Care Sportsman, and Rodney Foltz of Florence, KY in Bob Allen Motor Mall Front Wheel Drives.
Current track championship points leaders heading into the Friday August 24 racing event are Michael Chilton of Salvisa, KY in Good Neighbor Pharmacy Late Models, Elliott Despain of Campbellsville, KY in Clayton Homes Modifieds, Donnie Sullivan of Stanford, KY in Ken Towery’s Auto and Tire Care Sportsman, and Brandon Holt of New Haven, KY in Bob Allen Motor Mall Front Wheel Drives.
