AMRA Looking for Big Finish to 2012
Greg Schilling Memorial Sept 7 and Ohio Valley Mod Special Sept 8 !!!!
I-77 44th Annual Hillbilly 100 Weekend Coming
Jack Shutts Memorial Friday, July 20 at Skyline
MT. ALTO-As the 2012 racing season approaches the last two months of regular racing weekends, the American Motor Racing Association (AMRA) is in high gear with quality weekly racing at member tracks. Additionally, the "Money Season" of big races is quickly approaching for both Malta Modifieds and Tru-Tech Custom Late Models beginning with this week's $3,000 to win Jack Shutts Memorial at Skyline Speedway.
The make-up date for the 4th annual Greg Schilling Memorial Race at Skyline will be Sept. 7. Ohio Valley Speedway has helped the AMRA make this a great two-day weekend as it will hold its annual $1,200 to win modified special on Saturday, Sept. 8. Two big days of Open Wheel racing!
Midway will host the ADRA/AMRA Late Models for the Jim Dunn Memorial on the weekend of Aug. 11 and 12 with $5,000 going to the winner of the Late Models Sunday and $1,000 to the Malta Modifieds. Saturday will be a qualifier for the Jim Dunn event.
I-77 will host the 44th Annual Hillbilly 100 Aug. 31-Sept. 2 hosting the Championship weekend for the AMRA Modifieds. A warm-up event--The Big Dawg 30-- for Late Models will be August 18. See Hillbilly 100 details at the conclusion of this release.
Two big shows coming up are the Twin 25's at Jackson County Speedway, an event that features the ADRA late models, while Beckley hosts the Miner's Memorial race the same night August 3.
The AMRA proudly presents quality racing each and every weekend at its member tracks. Over $650,000 has been presented to drivers over the past 18 seasons with nearly $65,000 going to Late Model and Modified drivers in 2012. The winner of the AMRA Malta Modified National Series will take home $5,000 in prize money!
The AMRA values all of its member tracks and over 200 drivers that participate throughout the racing season.
"The storms, the intense two weeks of heat, the drought, and having many of our own without power for over a week has drained us all," said AMRA Race Director Scott Wolfe. "But this is only a stumbling block. Racers and race fans find a way to race and the AMRA drivers and fans have gained a second wind and are looking for a strong finish to 2012."
"Most of all," noted AMRA President Larry Keefer, "Our track owners, track promoters, and our AMRA drivers and owners are appreciated immensely. I really mean that!"
"The formula for success is that the points' money brings drivers and the drivers chasing points bring fans. We have been around for nearly a quarter of a century when other organizations full of promises have folded. We are going to be here a while longer."
As always the AMRA office urges fans to call the track ahead of time if you are planning a long trip, just to make sure that the race you wish to see is still a go!
