WOODHULL, NY – The racing action kicks off again this Saturday, May 25 at ‘New York’s Toughest Bullring’ as we remember George Williams. Griffith Energy and Elkland Moose team up to present this week’s action.
George Williams is well known around Woodhull as he made the track and kicked racing off here at the highbanks. Many people call him a jack-of-all-trades because he did everything! Everything, including running a dance hall! It wasn’t until 1963 Williams found himself at a racetrack but fell in love with it much like the rest of us drivers and fans.
The entire staff, fans, and competitors will pay tribute to the ‘Founding Father of Woodhull Raceway’ this Saturday night with the running of the annual George Williams Memorial races.
Griffith Energy and Elkland Moose are presenting the action this weekend.Griffith Energy has 14 locations across three states and can help you with propane or other energy services you may need for your home.
