Racing at Delaware Speedway was rained out last Friday. Tonight, it’s looking like we’re a “go”. So this is how I spend my time in my duties for Delaware, writing previews and post-race reports, media releases, profiles of racers and fielding media inquiries until race night when I’m on site, taking photos, notes, etc for all of the aforementioned articles. This is the latest preview written by yours truly with help from my boss-man, who knows a heck of a lot more about the track’s history than I do.
NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Action at Delaware Speedway
May 13, 2010 (London, Ontario) Mother Nature decided to remind us of her power last Friday, raining out the action at Delaware Speedway on the Mother’s Day Weekend.
OK Mother, we heard you, now it’s our turn!
This Friday, May 14th, we’ll be on the track with the NASCAR Late Models, Delaware Super Stocks and Demar Aggregates Trucks. Fans will also cheer on the spectators in 2010’s first King of the Hill race!
Dorchester’s Steve Robblee is defending his title in the Late Model Division, having finished the ’09 season as champion – his 9th time taking the title. Ron Sheridan of Mt. Bridges was just 16 points back of Robblee in ’09. Sheridan is widely considered to be the best driver never to have won a championship at Delaware.
In the Super Stocks, the #11 of Jason Lidster from St. Thomas In looks to repeat as champion, while former Junior Racing League graduates like Darrell Lake do their best to take the title away.
And in the Demar Aggregates Trucks, Paul Fothergill picks up this season after another truck championship last year and a solid run in the Enduro on the first of May.
We’re also welcoming back the volunteers from Jesse’s Journey who will complete their lap of the track in support of the Walk Across Canada in a Day fundraiser. It’s a minimum $5 donation to help end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and walk with us just before racetime.
