The brand new FASTRAK Modified class is off to a strong start at Mercer Raceway in Mercer, PA. The new class features Northeast-style modifieds with a 602 engine. So far, the class has averaged 18 entries per race.

“The support so far has been tremendous,” said Edward Michaels, owner of Mercer Raceway, “We’ve had 18 FASTRAK modifieds at our show and it’s off to a great start.”

Shayne Izzo, of New Wilmington, PA, currently leads the points in the FASTRAK Modifieds at Mercer Raceway. Brian Schaffer is in second. Jerry Schagger, Erik Martin, and Steve Slater round out the current top five. Steve Slater and Garrett Krummert have both visited victory lane FASTRAK Modifieds at Mercer Raceway so far in 2019.

“It’s exciting to see this brand-new class taking off at Mercer,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “We hope to continue to build this class not only at Mercer but in the surrounding area.”

How could Mercer run RUSH Modifieds on Saturday nights with Vickie's strong ties to Sharon??   Edward Michaels and Stan Lester made a good move here!!   Just hope that there are enough crate engine Modifieds for both to get decent fields!!!

 

GOOD RACING!!

longtime......You didn't read exactly what I said!!   I merely commented that "I hope there are enough crate engine Modifieds for both to get decent fields."  I didn't say they would or wouldn't!!  As for "paying attention", on May 11 Sharon had 32 cars and Mercer 15 and on May 18 Sharon had 22 and Mercer 18.  That's totals of 40 and 47, not quite "almost 50" in my book for the 18th  And on the 11th Sharon had an extra payoff race that was rained out last Fall!!  Maybe you should learn to count!!!  And remember, two races a season does not make, so I still "hope" both tracks get decent fields.  I also "hope" local tracks get enough Late Models weekly even though I know it isn't going to happen!!  

 

GOOD RACING!!!
