Area Stock Car Racing: Fonda race pays $5,000 to winner

Area Stock Car Racing: Fonda race pays $5,000 to winner

When the World of Outlaw Late Model Series postponed its event scheduled for Thursday at Fonda Speed

When the World of Outlaw Late Model Series postponed its event scheduled for Thursday at Fonda Speedway, promoter Matt DeLorenzo decided to keep the date on the schedule and change it to a modified event paying $5,000 to win along with a $1,000-to-win GRIT Series event for the sportsman cars.

The World of Outlaw event has been moved to 2015, when it is expected to be part of a larger swing through the Northeast, a press release said a couple of weeks ago.

“Our goal as a series is to always put on the best show possible for our fans,” said World of Outlaw Late Model Series director Tim Christman in a recent press release. “We were unable to secure an event to run in conjunction with Fonda this year, and rather than put on a subpar showing in a region with limited late-model competitors to join us, we will focus on building a bigger swing through the Northeast in 2015.”

Thursday’s race will be a 50-lap “All Green” event ­— the Empire State Championship 50 — for modifieds paying $5,000 to win.

The modified event will be a draw for the heats and a re-draw for the feature; Fonda/DIRTcar rules will apply.

The winner also will receive a guaranteed starting spot for the 29th annual Outlaw 200 at Fulton Speedway on Oct. 4. Show-up points will be awarded to all of the Fonda regulars in both divisions on Thursday.

General admission tickets for Thursday’s race are $10 for adults and $2 for children 12 and younger for the grandstand. Starting time is 7 p.m.
