Four 20 Lap Friday Night Dirt Indoor National Micro Sprint Winners In Trenton To Earn $1,000 Thanks To Turp Coates Law
Trenton, NJ - After a two-year hiatus, the East Coast Indoor Racing Dirt Nationals will be returning to the CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton NJ on Friday and Saturday February 24 and 25. With the entry list for the BELFOR Property Restoration sponsored event approaching 80 drivers, competitors are enthused about running for double the winner’s earnings in Friday’s four split field 20 lappers thanks to recent sponsorship.
Turp Coates Law of Hightstown, NJ has come aboard with Indoor Auto Racing Series to fatten the pot for Friday night’s racing in a big way. Thanks to the law firm support, the four winning drivers will receive $1,000, double the usual amount.
Friday night’s program will feature the field split into 10 heat races. The top 60 in points, finishing positions with the addition of passing points, advance to Friday’s four 20 lap A-Main qualifiers. The top three in each of these events transfer directly to Saturday night’s $5,000 to win A-Main.
Finishing positions and passing points from Friday will then set the line-ups for Saturday’s events for the remainer of the drivers who fail to finish in the top three on night one.
The drivers with the lease points will begin Saturday’s program, sponsored by Custom Built Product, in one of two F-Mains that transfer the top three to the back of those assigned to the E-Main. This process continues with each letter until the B-Main top finishers fill-out the field for Saturday night’s A-Main.
Starting in the F-Main would seem like a worthless proposition. But in the last running of the race in 2020, Jon Keller of Mannington Twp., N.J. flipped on Friday, then rebounded on Saturday to transfer through the alphpete from F to the A-Main and then pulled off the stunning victory!
Turp Coates Law, who serves the legal needs of six New Jersey counties for corporate, criminal, family, landlord and tenant, real estate and traffic law, joins Custom Built Products, Inc., of Tullytown, specializes in manufacturing of sheet metal products.
Keller, 36, left fans speechless and wanting more in 2020 after he started dead last in the 40 lap A-Main on Saturday and captured the victory with a last lap pass. Keller prevailed over Kenny Miller, Billy Pauch Jr. and Erick Rudolph in a wild finish for the ages.
Miller, who lost the lead to Keller on the final lap, has entered the race looking for redemption in 2023 driving a car owned by Lou Cicconi, Jr. Pauch also return as part of a four car Hummer Motorsports team in hopes of winning a race that had slipped out of his grasps the last two runnings in the final laps.
Four drivers going to post in the East Coast Indoor Racing Dirt Nationals will have raced indoors already this year.
Kyle Lick, who will be driving his father’s Micro, Tim Buckwalter in the highly touted Barry Greth entry, Tyler Lindsay the a family owned car, and Briggs Danner hustling for car owner by Dave Bodine are expected to be in the hunt.
Veterans Jesse Maurer, Gary Bozowski, Cliff Brian, Jr., Dane Lane, Jr., Chris Allen, and Central PA 410 Sprint standout Brent Shearer and are in the field.
Joey Amantea, who just announced his intention to run a full time USAC Wingless Sprint schedule, hasalso filed an entry as well.
Wingless Sprint ace Eric Jennings, Adrianna Delliponti, whose No. 22A Micro received a Best In Show trophy for Open Cockpit cars at the PPB Motorsports Show and outgoing Aqua Duck Ms. Motorsports Morgan Rochelle Bealer are among those who could be in contention for the A-Main victory.
Car owner Tom Fraschetta has entered his formidable two-car Micro Sprint team without drivers; those two seats are expected to be filled by a pair of big-name, well-known driving talents within the next week.
Additional event sponsorship opportunites are available and being actively sought to help support the event. This includes and entry level program for just $250. Interested parties should contact Danny Sammons at 609-888-3618 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
