Turtle Notes:
Incredible field of drivers for opening night. Great to see the many of the old-timers and some new drivers. Tight racing is the name of the game – Winner won by 1.5 laps. 2nd to 3rd was separated by only 17 segments. 3rd to 4th – was separated by 8 segments. 4th and 5th tied – Tiebreaker was used to separate both. 4th – 5th – 6th – separated by 11 segments. Some extremely tight racing by everyone. Randy rolled the dice and a teardown of 3 racers was done. Randy, Jordan and Tom Wenner were torn down post race. All cars passed tech. I think the ballots are still being counted on the personal awards. The clipboard blunder and racing another car were popular suggestions for driver of the week. Randy’s personal parking spot is going to get some use. Thanks for supporting us, We hope to see you all back next week.

Randy’s Raceway Tyco Tractor Trailer IROC Race Results.

Randy built this custom set of Tyco Rigs for a special IROC race. The Awards Banquet served that purpose and these trucks performed flawlessly and were a BLAST to drive. Thanks to Randy for allowing us to race them. The 4 lap IROC races were extremely close and the results showed it. Big Crashes occurred frequently and everyone had fun running these Tyco Beasts. Lane 3-4-5-6 were raced. 4 de-slots allowed. 4 lap races. The trailer was the placement of the de-slot, Not the truck..

A Brief Bio on Sam Heller

Here is a brief Bio on Sam Heller’s Slot Car racing through the years as I know it.  Sitting at the lunch table at Methacton High School sometime in the mid 70’s and I mentioned racing H.O Slot cars at our track in Trooper.  Sam heard me and said WHAT!.  That was kind of the start of Sam’s journey in the hobby.  He raced at our track Woodland Speedway and was Rookie of the year in 1975.  Sam won many features at Woodland and a some championships.  At the time our circuit consisted of many tracks running AFX, Magna-Tractions and T-jets.  Among the tracks Sam raced at were Audubon, Perkiomen, Tri-County, Landsdale, Norristown, Farview and of course his own track in Arcola which was appropriately name Bull Ring Speedway.  Sam is a front runner everywhere he hooks up and I still to this day enjoy when we are on the track together.  Many torrid battles have been staged.  Our early days included taking many trips to race at Tom Hiester’s and Big T’s as well as trips to Ace Lane and Clementine Speedways in NJ.  Sam went on to race for Bob Lincoln at Wizzard Racing after that in the early 80’s.  He had much success and is well respected on the National scene.  Sam dropped out of the hobby for a bit in the 90’s until I ran into him one time at the Supermarket. (Genuardi’s in Royersford)  I told him about a track in Kutztown that I was racing Tyco’s again and he gave it a try.  Hooked again, but I don’t think his wife Corrine was too happy with me. 

In round two of the hobby Sam got to reunite with old friends and make many new ones including many that are attending this weekends event at Little T’s Speedway in Myerstown.  Sam and I got to race last season together again at Hiester’s H.O. Raceway in Shillington, but this time we are the old guys.  At Randy’s Sam won 11 features over the years, including 5 in Modified, and 6 in IROC which Sam is always a force in.  The 11 wins place him in a tie for 10th all time at the Kutztown tracks.  Sam has also raced with many other organizations of which I am not always familiar with but there have been many.  Sam is currently an Officer with MAHOPRA and a regular racer as they travel that circuit in the PA and NJ area.

Sam also drove a Sportsman-Modified in the late 70’s at Grandview, Reading, East Windsor and Bridgeport.  The final race at the Reading Fairgrounds I was helping on our car for Charley Gilmore and we lost the engine during warm-ups.  I ran down and asked Sam if Charley could run his Coupe and Sam said sure.  Charley really liked the Motor that car had under the hood.

Pit Rumblings:

Congrats to Mike and Chris on their breakthrough feature event wins. 2020 is showing that this year is far more competitive with closer racing than in any year prior. While we are only racing lanes 3-4-5-6 – The racing is extremely tight, Nobody is walking away lapping the field and many races come down to the last lap with photo finishes. Several in both divisions this week once again. While no points are being kept, The coolness factor is pegged every week. Only 7 racers in the house this week, Several guys missing – Hiram, Toby, and Brian. All racing was completed by 800p. I am enjoying the early nights, It is nice to get home early. IROC racing this week – Randy provided TYCO 440X2 Wide Pan Chassis Dirt Mods with 5 ohm armatures by legend Edward Reifinger. These cars rocked around the Randy’s high banks. Good to see Mike and James running power this week. With these head counts, Everyone is jumping in.

Next Week: What everyone is waiting for – Coupe Bodied Modifieds & 410 Sprint Cars on the Randy’s Raceway Tri-Oval. Yes, Folks – Wreckers stand by – Sprints on the Tri-Oval.
