WOODHULL, NY- With the point battles winding down at the Woodhull Raceway and the season rapidly coming to a close on September 17, drivers and fans alike are looking at the stretch run prior to post season play and the 2022 Awards Banquet.
On Saturday, August 27 the track will welcome representatives of High Up Trucking in Jasper, NY to the facility as the nighty event sponsor.
Each of the three seasons that track owners, Terry and Niki Brewer have owned the historic Steuben County Speedway, the have provided sponsor nights for their owner two companies in the Nikk L Brew Restaurant in Canisteo as well as High Up Trucking.
“We are fortunate to have a very reliable staff at High Up Trucking as well as the Nikk L Brew. It gives our employees the opportunity to come to the track on there sponsor nights, relax and enjoy the action from our VIP areas.” That according to the Brewer’s.
On the speedway for the August 27 show it will business as usual with regular laps, purses and points for all eight weekly classes including the Insinger Performance Modifieds, the NAPA Crate Sportsman, Armstrong RUSH Crate Late Models and Joe Willcox Performance Automatics Street’s. In addition, the Hobby Stocks, Wicked Tee’s Mini’s and Warriors along with the Front Wheel Drive classes will see action.
As an added treat and at no extra cost the popular Vintage Cars will be on the card. Fans always enjoy the sight and sounds of the cars from days gone by and for younger race enthusiasts it gives them a closer look at how the equipment was managed some 50 or more years ago.
Last season on Vintage Car night, Rocket Roger Williams was able to plant his father, Bob’s machine in Woodhull’s Victory Lane. For the Williams family, it was an emotional victory as they had lost most all their shop equipment and numerous race cars, a classic car and vintage farm tractors when flooding ravaged the downtown Woodhull area on August 19, 2021. The crew was able to remove the #52 machine from the flood debris and mud, clean up and go thru the car and ready it for Woodhull with only days to spare. It was the grandfather of Roger Williams that originally built and promoted the Woodhull Raceway when the track first opened some 57 years ago.
