West Virginia?s Elkins Raceway Reunited with FASTRAK for Upcoming 2013 Season

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 26th, 2013 FASTRAK PR ? Wesley Outland

(Four Oaks, North Carolina) ? The Elkins Raceway located in Kerens, West Virginia has had a lot of historic moments making ?Thunder in the Mountains? since 1952 at the 3/8th mile clay oval in Randolph County. FASTRAK Companies International is delighted to announce the partnering with the Elkins Raceway in 2013, after a year absence last season. The plan for the Elkins Raceway is to run every Friday night for the racing season from May ? September. FASTRAK will sanction the crate late models program at the 3/8th mile for a FASTRAK Weekly Points Track Championship. Also clicking off the races needed to compete in the big $250,000 Dollars FASTRAK World Championship at season?s end that is an invitation event of ?FASTRAK?S Best of the Best?.

Elkins Raceway Promoter Jeff Ball stated the following about the track being sanctioned with FASTRAK Companies International again. ?I like a sanctioning body that comes in and wants to keep the racing honest. FASTRAK is the working man series but it?s the ?premier? best in crate late model racing ? they set the standard and exceed over the bars of excellence. Bottom line a majority of my local drivers stated they wanted Elkins Raceway ? FASTRAK and wouldn?t be happy if it wasn?t. You got to keep your drivers and competition happy. This is in conclusion a ?checks and balances? system for these guys out here that run FASTRAK anywhere especially Elkins Raceway. A lot of these drivers want to run just a weekly point?s championship format and then lay it all on the line representing Elkins Raceway at the FASTRAK World Championship at season?s end.?

Norman McDougal the Elkins Raceway track lease holder and also Jim Skidmore General Manager work in a ?chain of command? operation with Jeff Ball at Elkins Raceway. The result, it?s been very successful. Also Doug Smith with Schaffer?s Oil was a big integral part in bringing FASTRAK back at Elkins Raceway. He really is backing a lot of crate teams in support to help Elkins Raceway have a competitive crate class in 2013 under FASTRAK. They haven?t inked a deal yet for any FASTRAK Sweeney Cars Northeast Touring Series events but they didn?t leave out the opportunity of it not happening entirely. Their plans are to run some Special $1,500 -$2,000 to win crate shows and are also planning some special 2 days events also for 2013.

The official 2013 Elkins Raceway season gets started with an Open Practice on April 26th and the First Official Race event of the season will be on Friday night May 3rd.
