EYE ON RIVERHEAD
by Bob Finan
August 25, 2016

..
Mother nature plain and simple has not been nice to Riverhead Raceway in 2016. Four Saturday night wash outs along with two Sunday cancellations is the tale of the tape to date. Despite the tough start to their promotional career track owners Eddie & Connie Partridge and Tom Gatz keep moving forward and they look forward to the final weeks of the season optimistically. It has become commonplace for me to detail schedule adjustments in the Eye this season, this effort will be on different. The I Love America Night Fireworks will now be presented next Saturday.....Full Story

RESCHEDULED TO SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3RD

There were INEX Legend Race Cars on Long Island from as far away as North Carolina when a sudden summer storm swept Eastern Long Island Saturday morning August 20th causing flash flooding at Riverhead Raceway. With standing water as deep as 3-4 feet in some sections of the track property the night's race card which included the annual INEX National Qualifier for the Legend Race Cars was called off.

A sudden and dangerous storm blew off the ocean onto the North Fork of Long Island Saturday morning dumping anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of rain in less than two hours causing a flash flood at Riverhead Raceway and surrounding area. With some 3-4 feet of standing water at the track as of 2:00 pm Saturday track owners Eddie & Connie Partridge and Tom Gatz were forced to cancel the night's I Love America program.

AT RIVERHEAD WMT 200 SATURDAY
..
When the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour returns to Riverhead Raceway Saturday August 27th for the Riverhead 200 Donny Lia of Jerichio is hopeful of recapturing some of the late summer success he enjoyed earlier in his career at his former home track. Lia over a span of five years won four of the WMT August races at the demanding quarter mile and was dubbed "Mr. August" The August win streak started for Lia in August of 2003 when he won the 200-lapper over a 28 car field which he backed up with wins in August of 2004 & 2005. After the three race August win streak.....Full Story

ERIC GOODALE HOPES TO RIDE MOMENTUM OF BRISTOL WMT VICTORY
TO RIVERHEAD RACEWAY AUGUST 27TH
..
In sports the theory goes that teams can ride the wave of momentum of a big win into the next game or event. The most recent winner on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Eric Goodale of Riverhead is hoping to turn that theory into fact at Riverhead Raceway. Goodale will ride the momentum of his win in the Bush's Beans 150 Wednesday at the Bristol Motor Speedway directly to the next WMT race, the August 27th Riverhead 200. The Bush's Beans 150 triumph Wednesday night/Thursday morning was gratifying on several fronts for Goodale and his Riverhead Building Supply team.....Full Story

Indeed a hot one last Saturday night at Riverhead Raceway for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series and in fact too hot for the Sunday afternoon Summer Smackdown Enduro and Late Model program canceled due to the extreme heat. Before you ask, no it was not the first time a racing program was beat by the heat on Long Island. Bob Haeger Sr. when he ran the oval at Westhampton Speedway in 1976 called off a Sunday afternoon show for the Modifieds, Double O and Mini Modified stock cars. The complete Enduro portion of the Summer Smackdown.....Full Story

With temperatures projected to hit the low to mid 90's with a "feel like" temperature of over 100 degrees coupled with high humidity Riverhead Raceway owners Eddie & Connie Partridge and Tom Gatz postponed the scheduled Summer Smackdown program Sunday. During the running of Saturday night NASCAR Whelen All American Series program the Partridge's and Gatz monitored the weather predictions for Sunday and with the projected oppressive heat and humidity expected for Sunday the decision was made to call the show.
