Newmanstown, PA - Sometimes, its better to be lucky, rather than good. When you're running good AND lady luck smiles on you, well, that's a recipe for victory. And it's an especially sweet concoction when the combination produces a first career triumph.
That was the case for Taylor Troxel on Saturday night at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway, as the Bally, Pa. college student capitalized on some good fortune (for him; it was horrible luck for Dan Souder), then put his elbows up and gave the fans a fancy driving display to earn his first 600cc victory at the Clyde.
Bradley Brown shook off the previous week's bad luck to score his third win of the season in the 270cc division, and Darren Miller recorded his fifth triumph of 2014 in the 125cc Class. Curtis R. Miller extended his point lead with a win in the Sportsman feature, and Kenny Miller III captured his fifth checkered flag of the season in the main event for the 250cc Four-Stroke Micro-Sprints.
As we bring the 2013 year to a close we can look back at some of the great memories from this season that has made it a success. A packed house for our Fan Appreciation Day that helped us raise over $9,000 for the Christ Home for children along with a truckload of food to stock their pantry, a nice Memorial Day weekend, a great slingshot return to The Clyde, sun for the speedweek show, everyone enduring our way through Labor Day weekend, AND ONLY 2 RAINOUTS…
1. Car mishandling, i.e. if low tire causes mishandling, the car is retired, otherwise it may continue. A flat tire will be an immediate cause for removal from the race. Exception, the left front, but it must be on both beads. Cars that are an immediate threat to the safety of other competitors due to mishandling or an erratic line on the track will be cause for an immediate caution flag followed by disqualification.
Note: The change allows cars to be DQ'd if they pose a safety threat to other competitors due to mishandling or an erratic line.
Rule Change 2
XII.Penalties: Section A
5. Any car having four wheels on the infield may return to the track in a safe manner without improving position. If the driver improves his/her position he/she will be penalized.
Note: The change removes the words “no cutting corners.”
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.
