LINGERING RAIN SHIFTS RIVERHEAD RACEWAY LABOR DAY
LUAU ENDURO PROGRAM TO SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 17TH
by Bob Finan
Lingering rain coupled with cooler than normal temperatures Sunday forced Riverhead Raceway management to postpone the Labor Day Luau Enduro program to Sunday afternoon September 17th. A full card of wall to wall Enduro racing will be presented featuring the Street Stocks and Mini Stocks.
After rain interrupted the Saturday night 40-lap NASCAR Modified feature and Labor Day Fireworks display at the track not one but two 4-Cylinder Demolition Derby events were presented with Danny Zasowski of Holbrook and CJ Zukowski of Riverhead taking home hard hitting victories. Faced with an overnight track clean-up the Riverhead facilities team headed-up by GM John Ellwood had their efforts hampered and in fact dampened by overnight rain that only got heavier as the night moved along. In fact the rain lasted well into Sunday morning and past the scheduled 10:00 am opening of the pit gates for the Labor Day Luau.
Attention now turns to the Saturday night and Whelen Engineering Night as track owners Eddie & Connie Partridge & Tom Gatz will honor all Firefighters, Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services and Military members with 50% off admission. In order to obtain the discounted $15 adult admission a valid and active ID must be presented at the ticket window and what a show everyone will get to enjoy. The NASCAR Modifieds will compete in Twin 50's and be joined by a 30-lap Super Pro Trucks event, Late Models, Figure Eights and INEX Legend Race Cars.
A special Firefighter, Law Enforcement & EMS workers Gut & Go Enduro will be presented and joined by an 8-Cylinder Gut & Go Enduro and a Mini 8 race. Whelen Engineering will present all race winners with a handsome trophy, Whelen serves as the title sponsor of the NASCAR Whelen All American Series & NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour that will visit Riverhead Raceway Saturday September 16th.
