Fonda Speedway ‘Firecracker’ Date Adjustment Announced, STSS Event July 17

FONDA, NY – Adjust those calendars.

After review with the Montgomery County Agricultural Society, a new date has been released for the rain-postponed ‘Firecracker 50’ presented by Scenic View Campground and Picture Perfect Pools & Spas.

The event will now take place on Monday, July 17. A rain date of Tuesday, July 18 will be in place.

The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Modifieds of the River Valley Builders North Region (50 laps, $10,000 to win) and Precision Hydraulic & Oil Crate 602 Sportsman (25 laps, $2,000 to win) will take over the Track of Champions.

“After reviewing the calendar for the Fairgrounds, the Zerbini Family Circus will be performing July 10-12,” Fonda Speedway promoter Brett Deyo said.

“The two events would not have been able to be run simultaneously. Out of respect for the Northeast Dirt Modified Hall of Fame induction on Thursday (July 13 in Weedsport, N.Y.), we have opted for Monday the 17th.”

Deyo said he wanted to complete the event no matter what and the season at Fonda is a short one due to the annual Fonda Fair setup which begins in mid-August.

Gates open at 4 p.m., with hot laps at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7:15 p.m.

Adult grandstand admission is $28 (Adults), $26 (Seniors ages 65 and up) and Kids 11 and under are admitted FREE.

Pit admission is $45 (ages 13 and up), $40 (NASCAR or Fonda Members), $10 (Kids ages 6-12) and $2 for Children ages 5 and under.

Infield drive-in registrations for July 2 will transfer to the new date.

Next up for the STSS is a visit to New Jersey’s Bridgeport Motorsports Park next Sunday, July 9 for the ’60 Over Special’ remembering late legend Doug Hoffman. STSS Modifieds race 60 laps for $6,060 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $500 to take the green in a Rent Equip/Party Central South Region event plus the Crate 602 Sportsman battling for $1,500 to win and Belmont’s Garage South Region points.
