WALL TURKEY DERBY XXXV ON FOR NOV. 28-29

Elliott Enterprises (908)759-3311 walterelliott777@hotmail.com
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: SEPT. 1, 2008

WALL TURKEY DERBY XXXV ON FOR NOV. 28-29
Details on wallspeedway.com Sept. 7

WALL TWP., N.J. -- There will be a Turkey Derby XXXV at Wall Township

Speedway Nov. 28-29.

WTS's General Partners have made a agreement with its Operations Manager,

Jim Morton, to reopen the 57-year-old banked paved one-third-mile oval for

aa many as six dates in November. The first three dates are for practice

sessions leading up to the post-Thanksgiving Day classic with Nov. 30 set

aside as a rain date.

'I got the agreement call from General Partner Timm Shinn 7:30 p.m.

Saturday,' said Morton Aug. 31. 'The practice dates are set for

Saturdays Nov. 15, Nov. 22 and also the Tuesday before Thanksgiving Nov. 24.'

Morton said that Turkey Derby XXXV format, racing divisions and other details

are to be posted on www.wallspeedway.com Sept. 7.

The agreement allows a modified stock car racing tradition that Thomas and

Jeannie Nicol started in 1974. Some of the best modified stock car drivers

in the country have since competed against the local NASCAR

Whelen All-American Series stars on the banked paved one-third mile oval.

Turkey Derby XXXV is the first event on 'Big Wall' since Turkey Derby XXXIV

was held Nov. 23-24, 2007. Justin Gumley, of Colts Neck, was crowned WAAS

Turkey Derby Champion while James Civali, of Meridan, Conn. won the 100-lap

Open Modified race.

Ron Frees, of Brick, and Steve Stull, of Hamilton, were named respective

street stock and INEX Legends Cars Turkey Derby divisional titlists after

their twin race performances Nov. 23-24.

Chas Okerson, of Freehold, won the sportsman main and Robert Geibel, of

Brick the RMP Modified Affordable Division feature Nov. 23. Don Adams, of

Robbinsville, won the Keenan Motors American Three Quarter Midget Racing

Association main that day.

Andrew Jankowiak, of Buffalo, N.Y., won the Value Towing Factory Stock

feature Nov. 24.

The Garden State Quarter Midget Racing Association is meanwhile set to end

its season on the adjacent one-20th-mile 'Little Wall' 8 a.m. Sept. 6-7.






there is some politics involved here but i have a hunch that someone is "waiting in the wings" to buy the track......and keep it a racetrack, rather than develop it for housing and offices.
if they dont run races before the zoning hearing, the zoning changes and they can sell the property for development and the track will be gone forever.
why would they care if it was sold for development UNLESS someone wants it for a track but cant make the deal happen this year??????
whatever the reason, it would be nice to see wall stadium continue its long history.

I think we are leaning towards the farm show race no F.F.F. probably head up Thursday morning grab some pigeon some where and set up camp and start the party for the weekend .Anybody know of a good place for pigeon in the area might be the last meal for a couple of days :dontknow:
