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.

$14,000 Weekend: $10,000-to-win STSS Fonda July 2 ‘Firecracker’ Preceded by $4,000 July 1 Thruway Event

Written by Chris Moore

FONDA, NY – $14,000 weekend.

Next up for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco is an appearance at historic Fonda Speedway for the fifth annual ‘Firecracker 50’ presented by Scenic View Campground of West Winfield, N.Y., and Picture Perfect Pools & Spas of Clinton, N.Y.

The ‘Track of Champions’ hosts Round No. 5 of the STSS Modified River Valley Builders North Region for another $10,000-to-win feature event on Sunday, July 2.

Fonda Speedway hosted six STSS events in its history, four of those being the Independence Day weekend ‘Firecracker 50’ offering $10,000 to the winner.

The win list for the ‘Firecracker 50’ is a short one, as Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen has won all of the previous editions.

Friesen’s only defeat in Track of Champions STSS competition came in last year’s ‘Fonda 200,’ when the engine in his No. 44 expired early.

The driver who topped that $53,000-to-win race – Savannah, N.Y.’s Matt Sheppard – leads the River Valley Builders North Region points by 31 points following a resurgent fourth-place run at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, Vt.

Sheppard leads St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada’s Mat Williamson and Bohemia, N.Y.’s Dillon Steuer by 81 points.

Otego, N.Y.’s J.R. Hurlburt and St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada’s Steve Bernier – both fresh off their best-ever STSS performances – round out the top five in North Region points.

The STSS Crate 602 Sportsman join the night of racing for Round No. 3 of the Precision Hydraulic & Oil North Region.

The Crate 602 Sportsman contingent battle 25 laps and a boosted $2,000 winner’s share.

Complete ‘Firecracker 50’ event information has been posted on the STSS website at: https://shorttracksuperseries.com/event-info/

On Saturday (July 1), the eve of the ‘Firecracker 50,’ Fonda Speedway holds an F.X. Caprara Car Companies Thunder on the Thruway Series Amsterdam Truck Center Modified event, which pays $4,000 to the winner and utilizes a draw/redraw format.

Each Thunder on the Thruway program – a six-race mini-series between Fonda and Utica-Rome (N.Y.) Speedway – utilizes the host speedway’s rules package.

In total, a winning weekend offers Modified drivers a chance at a $14,000 weekend at Fonda Speedway to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday.

Like their Modified counterparts, the Crate 602 Sportsman have back-to-back draw/redraw events at Fonda. Saturday’s Thunder on the Thruway event pays $1,500 to the winner.

Unfavorable Forecast Forces Fonda Speedway Saturday Cancelation

FONDA, N.Y. (May 20, 2023) – With an extended hourly forecast predicting high percentages of precipitation, Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and Fonda Speedway officials have decided that it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel the evening program, ultimately saving on travel costs for teams and fans.

Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, New York, will be the final stop on the upcoming All Stars swing through the Empire State, ready to host some of the nation’s finest open wheelers on Sunday, May 21. Like Outlaw Speedway, Weedsport will award an $8,000 payday, and just like Fonda Speedway, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich was the last to score a Weedsport victory during All Star competition, that occurring in 2019.
