Large Turnout for the Summer Spectacular and Paul White Memorial, Wingless Wednesday Resumes Sept 4


Over 197 entries, from a variety of states include Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, New York came together to compete in the 2019 Summer Spectacular at Shellhammer’s Speedway that held events for Flat Karts, Champ Karts, Junior and Senior Slingshots, Junior Quads and PA Mini Pro Tractors. Many teams took part in the Friday evening open practice session to help get their rides dialed in for the big race Saturday afternoon. Then the racers, teams and fans were treated to a post practice session free concert provided by the band “Better Than Nothing” that put on a great show and had everyone dancing along to the music.

Saturday morning saw even more race teams pull in and start to get set up for a day full of racing. Once the drivers meeting was completed, it was time to start practice followed by time trials for all of the classes except for Kid Kart, Kid Kart Champ, Junior Quad and PA Mini Pro Tractors, who still did heats for their qualifying runs. The awards for the fastest qualifiers in the time trials sessions were as follows: Paul White Memorial - Alex Achey, Rookie Purple Champ - Brayden Wittich, Junior Champ 335- Dylan Cordier. Flathead Super Heavy - Jacob Foster, Flathead Champ 410 - Austin Roush, Senior Slingshot - Dakota Kohler, Animal 360 - Wesley Potts, 35 and Over - Albert Pignoli, Rookie Blue Champ 300 - David Cordier IV, Junior Champ 355 Cole Brown, Flathead Champ 425 - Morgan Rathfon, Flathead 360 David Cordier III, Junior Slingshot - Logan Bauman, Animal 375 - Wesley Potts, Animal Champ 410 - Austin Roush, Rookie Purple Champ 300 - Brayden Witch, Predator 375 - Dwayne Hottle, Flathead 375 - JJ Pacovich, Rookie Blue Champ 315 - David Cordier IV and Animal Champ 425 - Jesse Maurer.

Once the fields were set, it was time to go into the 25 lap main events, where some drivers would walk away with some of their largest payouts of the year. The Paul White Memorial was a benefit race in memory of Paul White, a local well known Kart racer that passed away earlier this year. Thanks to the efforts of JP Curry and the hard work of his family and friends, they hosted a great one time only memorial race along with a Chinese auction with many high end prizes that were donated, sold T-Shirt and collected donations for Paul’s children and raised over $10,000 for Eian, Juli and Brielle White thanks to all of the racers, teams and fans in attendance at the Summer Spectacular! Alex Achey would lead the 30 Lap Paul White Memorial Race from start to finish and hold off the pressures of Melissa Ford to take home the win and the $750 payday in this one of a kind event.

The winners of the Animal 360, Animal Champ 425, Flathead 375 and Flathead Champ 410 Features all would each earn a $500 payday and they were Wesley Potts, Melissa Ford, JJ Pacovich Shawn Troxel respectively. The Junior Champ 335, Junior Champ 355, Rookie Purple Champ 300 and Rookie Blue Champ 315 Feature winners would each earn $250 payout for their efforts and they were Dylan Cordier, John Maurer, Hailey Eroh, Christofer Buehl.

In the Junior Classes, Cameron Hartz would win the Kid Kart class, Mason Noll would win Kid Kart Champ and Jacoby Cordier would win his first ever Junior Quad feature event. Courtney Pignoli would win her first ever PA Mini Pro Tractor Feature Event also during the Summer Spectacular.

The Summer Spectacular is a day time event that allows racers to run on one of the fastest track surfaces of the entire season and really tests the skills of the racers. As day turns to night, the conditions barely change as the rubber builds up on the racing surface. It becomes packed down and hard and will challenge even the seasoned racer. It was a great turnout with lots of talent that took to the track and even some first time racers including Eian White taking his first laps around any track in a Kid Kart. On behalf of the Cordier Family and the Shellhammer’s Speedway Staff, Thank you to everyone for a successful 2019 Summer Spectacular Event!
