  2. Super C. D. Coville to be featured guest at Lost Speedways 2018 SARATOGA SPRINGS — The all-star lineup for the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s Lost Speedways 2018 was completed this week when dirt track modified superstar C.D. Coville indicated he would be on hand to be interviewed by program organizer Ron Hedger of Speed Sport Magazine. “When the ‘Superman’ found that he was free to attend on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, it put the program over the top,” Hedger said in a news release. “We’ll discuss his extremely successful career and find out whether all the stories and legends that abound about him are true or not.” The program, which typically attracts a full house of enthusiasts, will open with Ken Parrotte’s look back at the AAA/USAC champ car races on the famed Syracuse mile. He will be followed by another longtime favorite, Bill Ladabouche, who will recall how crude racing was in northern Vermont in the early days compared to New York. The final presentation before intermission will feature mini-stock king Bob Hackel, talking not about his exploits but those of his father, who was both a racer and a promoter. Following intermission, Hedger will interview 2017 Northeast Region Promoter of the Year Lyle DeVore, whose accomplishments at Albany-Saratoga have brought him to national prominence. But the topic of the day will be his start in the industry with promoters C.J. Richards and Alex Friesen, who had built an amazing network of speedways and special events when he suffered an untimely demise in a snowmobile accident. The C. D. Coville segment will then top off the outstanding program. Attendees will once again be invited to bring memorabilia to share with the crowd, beginning at 11 am in the museum’s front gallery. Presentations will follow at 12:15 p.m. Other details of the program will be released as the date nears, but now is the time to mark Nov. 24, Lost Speedway’s traditional “Saturday after Thanksgiving” date, on your calendar.

  5. I think you avoid some of the fees at the window, but I know the Times Union has an arena fee to help pay for their renovation project that is ongoing.
  6. Nope but they have a few $5 lots not too far from the arena. It’s more at the arena’s parking garage. The same thing happened with arenacross tickets there. A $20 ticket goes to $30 plus with the fees. I’m not paying for a ticket and a half for one ticket.
  7. The fees are a bit much. I just checked on the Albany indoor tickets. With fees they went from $28 to $41 or from yes to no.
  8. SARATOGA SPRINGS — The lineup of speakers and interviewees for the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s annual Lost Speedways program, a look back at speedways and racing heroes of the past, has been finalized for 2017. Scheduled for its traditional “Saturday after Thanksgiving” date, the November 25th program will kick off with the annual memorabilia display at 11 am with the formal program set for 12:15 pm. “We’ll open with Ken Perrotte looking back 50 years at the amazing 1967 racing season,” said event organizer Ron Hedger, curator of SAM’s Racing in New York gallery. “He’ll recall the exploits of NASCAR Sportsman champion Pete Hamilton, Parnelli Jones, Dennis Hulme, Curtis Turner, Smokey Yunick, Dutch Hoag, AJ Foyt and Mario Andretti, among others. Then we’ll move to a more modern topic, NASCAR Tech, with recently retired rules maker and Sprint Cup garage supervisor Randy Hedger, who will tell insider stories and take questions about NASCAR technical issues, past and present. “Following intermission, I’ll take a look back at the Labor Day State Fair races at Syracuse in the 1950’s and 60’s. Then we’ll do our annual interview session with DIRTweek winning car owner Randy Ross and longtime Syracuse competitor Dickie Larkin. This has proven to be the longest and most popular segment in recent years.” As always, the program is free for museum members, while others will pay the standard museum admission fee. Lunch will again be available, as it proved to be a very popular addition last year.

There was a silver lining to the story, as drivers turned out in support of the fastest ¼ mile on dirt. Sixteen Crate Modifieds signed in at 'The Ridge' Sunday including former track champion Rocky Warner with the Jake Spraker Used Cars 1J. Former track champion JaMike Sowle was on hand with the Sowle Trailer Repair 711, Tim Hartman Jr. had the Parillo Services 22 ready for action, and Chad Edwards had the Spencer Racing 37 in house. Point leader Chris Curtis was in attendance with a new teammate in Whitey Slavin, who will pilot the Lindell Fuels 35w. Perhaps the most intriguing entry was Albany-Saratoga Modified track champion and King Of Dirt Racing 358 Modified Point Leader Marc Johnson. He was set to pilot the Gary Derocher owned Electric City Taxi 10d. All-time leader in Limited Sportsman wins at 'The Ridge' belongs to Mike Jackson, who was ready to roll for the Shaffer Racing Team. Former track champion Lenny Billings was happy to be back on the hill and two-time feature winner Kathy Bellen was also ready to tackle the Limited Sportsman division at Glen Ridge. Young gun and Lebanon Valley announcer Marty Kelly joined Colin Clow, Bill August, Mike Parodi, John Linblade, and others were ready to ring in the new era. Gus Hollner led the Pro Stock drivers along with fellow area business owner Todd Hoffman. Norm Loubier ventured over from the great race place and Jason Samrov ventured up from Fonda. Lebanon Valley regular Sparky Reilly was ready for some short track action along with Joslin, Stone, and more for a total of ten full-fender drivers on hand. It was a great sign of things to come with 16 Crate Modifieds, 10 Limited Sportsman, 10 Pro Stock, 14 Sling Shots, 11 POWRi Midget Sprints, and 9 4-Cylinder Mini Stocks ready to go. Next Sunday all who saved their wrist bands will be able to use them, as Glen Ridge will try again to open a new era at the fastest ¼ mile on dirt.

  12. Here's the full release that is posted on the Glen Ridge website. As we struggle with low car counts and once again have been hit with 3 days of heavy rain we feel it best in everyone’s interest to suspend racing at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park for Friday June 2, 2017. Look for an announcement this week for a possible change to the program at Glen Ridge as well. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and still supports us. We hope to see everyone again next week at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park.

  14. SARATOGA SPRINGS — When the green flag flies for the “Lost Speedways” program Nov. 26, Saratoga Automobile Museum visitors will enjoy presentations on a variety of gone but not forgotten speedways. Bill Ladabouche will take the audience back to the days when the top drivers from New York and New England squared off each Thursday night at Vermont’s famed Catamount Stadium, while Ken Parrotte will revisit the legendry Maple Grove Raceway in Waterloo. On an entirely different note, Brian Ross will recall the days of quarter-midget racing with Tommy Kingston, who recently donated his Offeyette, complete with spare parts, to the museum. The race-ready car and photos of it competing near Troy, will be on display along with another Offeyette that will be the focus of an upcoming restoration project for area students. Area Auto Racing News columnist Herb Anastor will journey from Vineland, N.J., to share information on board track automobile racing, a subject he recently discussed with host Ray Evernham on his “Americarna” TV show. And closing out the program will be the traditional interview segment, which this year will have a special twist. “Dave Lape has just finished restoration of his famed #44b that he dominated area speedways with back in 1977,” said event organizer Ron Hedger. in a news release. “When I asked him to loan the car for display in our Racing in New York gallery, Dave immediately said ‘Yes,’ which set up the perfect combination for Lost Speedways. Dave will be coming to talk about the car, which he ran a single season and won 23 features with, including 10 at Fonda. He’ll field questions about the #44b and we’ll discuss his Hall of Fame career, his promotional ventures with the late Andy Fusco, racing on the Syracuse Mile and other subjects of interest to our audience. It will be a perfect way to end the program, which is always the busiest day of the year at the museum.” In addition to the presentations, visitors are once again encouraged to bring their memorabilia to share with others in what has turned into a “gathering of the clan” on the traditional “Saturday after Thanksgiving” date. And for the first time ever, refreshments from Dinosaur Barbeque will be available for museum visitors. “This event does not fit into an afternoon, so we open the memorabilia displays in late morning with presentations starting at 12:45,” Hedger said in the release. “But many visitors come at 10 am when the museum opens to see the Racing in New York gallery and Golub Gallery exhibits, so missing lunch has always been a problem. With the caterers from Dinosaur Barbeque set to offer a limited menu featuring their most popular offerings, participants can have a quick meal with their friends without missing a moment of the action.” More information on the Saratoga Automobile Museum and its many programs can be found online at www.saratogaautomuseum.org. The museum is located on the Avenue of the Pines in the Saratoga Spa State Park, just off Exit 13N of I-87, the Adirondack Northway
