MOST RECENT NEWS AND EVENTS FROM THE DIRT TRACK
JUNE 22, 2013 - RESULTS FROM SHARON SPEEDWAY, JOY GLOBAL NIGHT, JEREMY ZUFALL #20
Jeremy had a good night on the track
despite the fact that his late model, Fastrak series #20 modified was
barely ready to go. He had never taken the new car out on the dirt
track and was unsure as to how it would perform. He pulled a great pill
to start at the pole but had to give it up until he had the chance to
race in the heat to see how the car would perform. He adjusted the car
for the feature and is pleased to say he is ready to take on the new
season and is excited about how his car performed.
Here are some details from the Sharon Raceway website. You canclick here for all the details.

third trailing pole-sitter Bobby Whitling. Only one caution slowed
action, on lap 11 for a spin by newcomer Jeremy Zufall in turn three.
After the restart, Blair pressured Whitling for second, getting the spot
on lap 13. Blair then set his sights on leader Latta, and caught him on
the final lap, but Latta was too strong and held off the challenge for
his third career win in the Tim Latta-owned, Ball Auto & Scrap/Fame
RV Center/Maloney Tool & Mold/Springs Body Auto Shop-sponsored #21.

Terrible Tragedy on the Dirt Track
Dirt Track racing is a safe sport for the most part, but there are always risks to the drivers. Those drivers are aware of the risks and take precautions to prevent anything from happening. Every so often though, something goes terribly wrong as in this case. There are no details other than Jason was competing in a heat race in the Sprint Car division while racing on the dirt track. He must have crashed and had to be pulled out of his car. The rest of the races at the track were cancelled for the day.
Our prayers and sympathies go out to the family and friends of Jason Leffler who died during a dirt track auto race at Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey. You can read the article by clicking here.
