When Gary Gorskis’ 2014 Championship 125cc driver Darren Miller left the ride after the season to move up to 305 sprints, it left Gary looking for a driver.In talking to Gary he said “I absolutely loved Darrens’ young enthusiasm”. “It was one of the most fun seasons of recent memory”.So in looking for a driver I wanted that same kind of young excitement for the 2015 season.And the lucky recipient of the most successful racing team for many years in the 125cc class will be young gun Justin Harrington.Justin comes to the team after running his inaugural season in the 125cc class, starting the year in the familiar family run #76 and finishing the year piloting the Dan Lindsey mount, capturing one feature win and a seventh place points finish.Justin also received the 2014 “Sportsman of the Year” honors. This coveted award ,voted on by his peers,shows a veteran respect for just a 19 year old starting out his racing career.Justin says he is looking forward to continuing the fun and the success that Gary and Team Gorskihavecome to expect.

The final weekend of November produced a major shake-up in the world of 600cc Sprint racing, as one of the most coveted rides in the 600cc ranks will have a new fanny filling its seat in 2015.
Car owner Gary Hunter and his driver of the past four years, Mike Rutherford, have parted ways after a very successful relationship. When the new season begins in the spring of 2015, Manheim’s Heath Hehnly, the four-time champion of the 600cc division at Lanco’s Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway, will buckle into Hunter’s No. 7h.
The track itself is a 1/8 mile clay oval with banked turns offering five divisions of micro-midget racing each night. (250cc two stroke air cooled sportsman, 125cc two stroke water cooled, 250cc four stroke, 270cc two stroke water cooled, and 600cc four cylinder) With the most recent improvements completed in the fall of 2006. The famous track is considered to be a jewel and is highly known for many things. Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway, also known as Lanco, offers great views, the concessions are one of the best, the spectator bleachers are superb, along with clean restrooms. Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway ranks among one of the top tracks anywhere on the east coast. The facilities and the track offer the best racing and family entertainment. 2012 is our 55th season of promoting professional micro-midget racing. We welcome you to the "Biggest Little Track" known as the "Clyde".
