ELKINS RACEWAY “ULTRA” MEGA CANDY RUSH RESCHEDULED
After consecutive Saturdays of weather-induced cancellations at Elkins Raceway, the grounds have dried out and are ready for a Memorable Memorial Day celebration. After last Saturday’s cancellation, track management had to exercise a lot of self-control to keep from raiding the candy stockpile; however, the original amount received is intact, and in fact has been supplemented by further donations to make the Kids’ Candy Rush even bigger and better than originally planned. Youngtsters, please remember to bring bags in which to carry off your “sweet loot”; however if you do come without one, the Kids Club will provide you with one. The Cordial Logistics Hot Mod class will take the racing spotlight, with another $500-to-win special sponsored by the awesome folks at Cordial Logistics. All the other classes will be in action as well; the Budweiser Late Models, TKS Contracting/High Point FASTRAK Crates, Holbrook on the Hill UMP Modifieds, and Dirt Street Stocks will all be on the schedule following the two age groups of Mini-Wedges. And with a very favorable weather forecast, we are looking for a “hillside-filling” crowd to help us celebrate the 2023 Memorial Day weekend. Race-day information can be obtained on the raceway’s Facebook page, or by calling (304)636-3339. Pit gates will open at 4 PM (Admission $30); General Admission gates open at 5 PM (Admission $15).

ELKINS RACEWAY OPENS 71ST ANNIVERSARY SEASON
One week after a successful ‘Test-N-Tune’ evening, Elkins Raceway management got its 71st Anniversary season underway with an equally successful opening night. It could have been termed an early Fathers’ Day, as three of the five feature winners were second-generation drivers whose Dads have made their share of laps around the historic track. Logan Hitt, Buckhannon, swiped the spotlight from his dad, defending Budweiser Late Model champion Shane, by winning the opening feature of the year. Logan started 3rd and took the early lead which he never relinquished. Trey Watson, Shane Hitt, Bob Gordon, and newcomer Josh Richeson filled the top 5. Daniel Hill was fast qualifier; Gordon and S. Hitt won the heats. The quickly-growing Cordial Logistics Hot Mod division shared the headline events; the season’s first Special paid $500 to the winner. Dustin Isner took the opportunity to the fullest, coming from his 3rd-starting spot to lay claim to the higher payout. Isner was followed at the checker by fast-qualifier Roger Hull, Wyatt Ball, Jason Phillips, and Junior Wyant. Hull was the quick qualifier; he and Harper won the prelims to set the feature line-up. Second-gen driver Garrett Paugh returned to the Elkins Raceway Winners’ Circle by taking the TKS Contracting High-Point FASTRAK-sanctioned Crate feature. After starting 6th, Paugh was able to work his way to the front through traffic that included defending division champ Brent Trimble. Paugh and Trimble finished ahead of newcomer Dave Loudin, Luke Hyre, and Zak Kimbrew. Trimble, in a new ride, was fast qualifier; Paugh and Michael Moreland won the heats. The evening’s third second-generation winner emerged from the field of the Holbrook on the Hill UMP Modifieds, as 17-year-old Mitch Thomas started 6th and took the lead on lap 3 and went unchallenged in the 20-lap main. Thomas led veteran Gary Dalton, Scott Bittinger, Matt Lashbaugh, and Randy Bise at the finish. Thomas completed the evening’s “hat trick” by being fast qualifier and winning his heat; Dalton was also a heat winner. Michael Ayersman led a slim field of Dirt Street Stocks to the season-opening win; he was followed by Kevin Cooper, Todd Simmons, and Randy Thornhill. Elkins Raceway patrons are reminded of the new App that will receive race lineups and other information on Smart Phones. Those wanting this info must go to the track website and fill out the required form, then download the App on his/her Smart Phone. Thunder in the Mountains returns this Saturday with another Saturday Night Thunder event. Coming May the 20th will be Kids night at Elkins Raceway as a Candy rush of all candy rushes will be put down for the kids at intermission, It will be the biggest candy rush ever at Elkins Raceway as several race teams and other sponsors have flooded the gates with support to make that MEGA event for the young ones that come out to partake in the seasons first event for the kids this year at Elkins Raceway.

ELKINS RACEWAY PREPARES FOR 71ST ANNIVERSARY SEASON

After an off-season filled with track improvements, and a thorough spring-cleaning of other
facilities, the staff and management of Elkins Raceway is ready for the track’s 71st Anniversary of short-
track racing. A successful “Test-N-Tune” night was held Saturday, April 29, in anticipation of this week’s

(UMP Mods), Josh Simpson (Hot Mods), Kevin Keene (Street Stocks), Brad Currance (Older Mini-
Wedges) and Adley Green (Young Mini-Wedges) are all expected to be on hand to add to their laurels.
Racing is scheduled every Saturday evening through the end of August, with several special events
for each class already planned, including the Skidmore Memorial, and the annual Wall-of-Fame induction,
with other additions possible throughout the season. Also, the Elkins Raceway Kids Club will be active
weekly with prizes and activities for fans age 10-under. Not to be overlooked, the track’s concession
stand will be open throughout each evening, continuing the tradition of the best race-track food available
anywhere.
Pit gates will open at 4 PM Saturday ($30 admission); General Admission gates open at 5 PM ($15
admission); hot-lap/qualifying for all classes will begin at 7:30. Raceday information can be obtained on
the track’s Facebook page or by calling (304)636-3339 after 4 pm. The season’s schedule, along with

Preparations have been underway for the next season of Saturday Night Thunder at Elkins Raceway since finishing 2020 last fall. The favorable early-spring weather has enabled staff to go “full speed ahead” for the upcoming summer racing year, in
hopes of being able to host weekly events every weekend again this season.  The track’s annual “Test-N-Tune” night is scheduled for Saturday April 24, with gates opening at 5PM; practice will continue until 10 pm.  Opening Night is scheduled for the following Saturday, May 1, with pit gates opening at 4 pm, General Admission at 5; racing at 7:30.  The weekly divisions will remain the same; Super Late Models, Fastrak Crate Late Models, UMP Modifieds, EDGE Hot Mods, Street Stock, and Mini Mods Racing is scheduled for every Saturday evening throughout the summer, with special events to be announced dotting the calendar all season.
It’s time to get out and again smell the racing fuel for the track’s 69th Anniversary season. The staff, race teams & drivers, and fans are all ready to get going again, in full force.  The full schedule (which is subject to change) is listed on both the track’s
website and Facebook page. Check the Facebook page for the earliest schedule change/update information.

Please be aware of any/all restrictions put in place by the local and state health departments regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, and follow instructions as much as possible and remember. Let’s get out and go racing!!
Thanks, Jeff
