Busy Weekend for CRSA at Gater Motorsports Expo 2014
The CRSA Sprint Car Tour kicks off its 2014 Season at Fonda This Weekend - posted on 04/21/14

The CRSA Sprint Car Tour will kick off its 2014 racing season on Saturday, April 26, at the Fonda Speedway in Fonda, NY.
Under new management this year, promoter Matt Delorenzo, has been hard at work giving the historic speedway a needed facelift. Everything seems to have a fresh coat of paint, the pit shack has been moved as well as an all new area for the concessions, and there are even tv monitors hanging under the roof of the covered grandstands! A wall now runs down the length of the back stretch with a high catch fence protecting the river from flying race cars. It is quite impressive to see all the work that has been done there, especially since this has been the hardest winter in upstate NY in years.
This CRSA opener is our first full point show of the season and the first night with our stamped spec American Racer right rear tire. 2014 Points Champion, John Matrafailo, has renewed his equipment and will be there with his guns loaded giving it a shot to try and make it two in a row!
It is also the first of eight races for the Kennedy Towing of Troy, Northway-90 Challenge series. Last years champion, Danny Varin, was undefeated in all three Northway-90 races that were held and is ready to defend his title in the Dan Coumo 07p.
So make the trip to Fonda for some always exciting CRSA Sprint Car action plus their own weekly racing divisions of Modifieds, Sportsmans, and Prostocks.


New Egypt Speedway Invites CRSA Members to Participate in All Star Cup Shootout - posted on 04/04/14

Registrations for New Egypt Speedway's All Star Cup Shootout are available on their website at: You must register before the end of April and the cost is only $50. The registration form is under the 2014 Forms button on the front page.

The All Star Cup Shootout is a points series which is held throughout the season at your home track or region and comes to a close on September 20th with an All Star race held at New Egypt Speedway.

You will accumulate All Star points from your eight best finishes with the CRSA Sprint Car Tour. Then add in the points from the All Star race on 9/20 to come up with the final point standings. The champion will receive $3005 and it will pay back through the field quite well. The winner of the All Star race will also receive $3005 for the win, making it possible for someone to receive a possible $6010 if they are also the All Star Champion! CRSA is an official region in the All Star Cup Shootout.

If you’re interested in starting your season early to shake down your new ride, New Egypt Speedway has invited all CRSA members to their sprint car opener, which will be held this Saturday April 12. No special license is required and it is an open draw for starting positions. It's a good time to get a feel of the race track as a preview for Sept. 20.


CRSA Sprint Car Tour Readies for 2014 Season - posted on 03/28/14

With the car shows now behind us...the CRSA Sprint Car Tour readies for the upcoming racing season. Membership cards are being sent out, rulebooks are being printed, and sticker packs are being assembled. The racers are going through their cars for the upcoming season, freshening engines, painting frames and repairing anything may cause any damage that will prevent them from finishing an all important points race.
The 2014 schedule is out and is quite busy this year. The quality of racing that we showcase is second to none! Not too many organizations can boast to having eleven different winners out of seventeen races! We have twenty seven CRSA events scheduled at ten different racetracks. After a years absence, we are returning to the Glen Ridge Motorsports Park for three Sunday events and we are heading up the mountain for a "Sprint Car Saturday Night" at the Thunder Mountain Speedway, an all winged event that is combined with the Empire Super Sprints and the SRP 600 Micro Sprints. New to the Tour this year is our first ever trip to the high banks of the Lebanon Valley Speedway. This prestigious half mile race track is located in West Lebanon, NY which lies just east of Albany and not too far from the Massachusetts border. A proven sprint car facility, as the ESS and the WOO both make yearly appearances there with huge crowds at attendance.
In addition to our overall Tour Points battle, we have four separate point battles going on during the year:
The Algonkin Motel Challenge returns for its fourth consecutive year honoring the top three most consistent racers from all the events held at the I-88 Speedway in 2014. Last years champ was Delhi, NY native, Dustin Purdy in the #83.
The Northway-90 Challenge, brought to you by Kennedy Towing of Troy, also returns for its second season. This series consists of race tracks in the Capital Region of NYS. This year, the top five racers will be awarded for their efforts after accumulating points gathered at the Fonda Speedway, Glen Ridge Motorsports Park, Albany-Saratoga Speedway and the Lebanon Valley Speedway. Last year’s Champ was local mod pilot, Danny Varin driving the Dan Cuomo #07p.
New to the series this year is the Southern Tier Challenge which is sponsored by E&H Services LLC., owned and operated by CRSA racer, Ed Newhauser. The southern tier tracks include, Orange County Fair Speedway, Penn Can Speedway, and the Five Mile Point Speedway. The top five will be awarded at the end of the 2014 season which will conclude at the Five Mile Point Speedway on October 31.
Another new sponsor this season, Dirt Track Girl Racing Apparel, has stepped up to sponsor the two races which were left out of the other Challenge races. DTG owner, Kelly Gell, has decided to award the top three highest points getters after the races held at Black Rock Speedway and the Thunder Mountain Speedway. Called the"DTG Western Roundup", this mini-series includes both tracks we race at west of I-81.
There is lots of excitement building in the CRSA Sprint Car Tour for this year! We have some new drivers coming into the mix as well as some older drivers returning after a year or two off the tour.
There will be a merchandise trailer at most races operated by Dirt Track Girl Racing Apparel. The new CRSA t-shirts and hoodies have arrived and will be alongside all the DTG merchandise. This trailer will be put in the grandstand area during the races for the fans and will be brought into the pits afterwards. Any drivers who would like to have shirts made or sell the ones you have, see Kelly at DTG and she can make it happen.
We are looking forward to a great season! See ya there!!!
