Junction City, KY- May 2, 2013- Ponderosa Speedway track promoter Larry Yantz and co-promoters Chad and Sarah Yantz would like to announce some additions and changes to the 2013 racing schedule at the 3/8 mile D-shaped red clay oval better known as “Kentucky’s Baddest Bullring”.
On Friday May 24, Ponderosa Speedway will present the 1st Annual Spring Showdown, paying $3,000 to win for Good Neighbor Pharmacy Super Late Models, along with a full racing program for all other divisions. This event was originally scheduled back on April 19, but was cancelled on that date due to inclement weather. The event will now be unsanctioned and will proceed the Rain Dodger 40 event at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, KY, which takes place on Saturday May 25 and will also pay $3,000 to win. The driver that accumulates the most points between the two tracks at those pair of events will receive a $500 bonus.
The racing event scheduled for Friday May 31 will now be a regular show that will feature Good Neighbor Pharmacy Super Late Models ($1,200 to win), Bluegrass Drug Store Modifieds ($600 to win), Smith Automotive Machine Shop FASTRAK Late Models ($600 to win), D&D Pallet Recyclers Sportsman ($300 to win), and Airport Road Salvage Yard Four Cylinders ($200 to win).
Also added to the racing schedule will be the Colston Paving 40 event for the FASTRAK City Chevrolet National Touring Division of FASTRAK Late Models. This event was originally scheduled for May 31, but will now take place on Friday August 9, paying at least $2,000 to win for FASTRAK Late Models. Other divisions competing at this event will be announced at a later date. This move now gives FASTRAK competitors back-to-back nights in the region, as the FASTRAK City Chevrolet National Touring Division will compete at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, TN the following evening on Saturday August 10.
