UnknownRiverhead Raceway GM John Ellwood disclosed over the weekend that for the first time in their 31-year history Enduro competitors of the historic quarter mile will utilize transponder scoring for the Fall Frenzy race card Sunday November 1st at 12:30 pm. A full card of Enduro racing will join a 40-lap “cone” race for the Legend Race Cars with a special Trick Or Treat session for children in costume taking place in the grandstands.
As of the Columbus Day weekend nearly 100 Fall Frenzy Enduro entries have been received by the new management team at Riverhead Raceway and among those entrants are some former drivers making a comeback for this unique first of a kind program in Long Island racing. In announcing the transponder scoring procedure John Ellwood revealed that teams can rent a scoring unit from the track for $15 for the day. Ellwood did note that teams can borrow a transponder from any other Riverhead Raceway team that already uses transponders that they might have a relationship with. In that case the driver must alert track officials to the serial number of the borrowed unit prior to the race. Teams are urged also to make sure transponders are fully charged by race day.

Enduro teams that might need some technical advice installing the transponder device onto their race cars will be able to contact Mike Odwazny or John Ellwood via e-mail at Odwazny will be able to advise teams on some steps they can take for installation of the transponders prior to arriving at the track on race day.  Email the track with your contact information for Mike to reach you.

In action for the Fall Frenzy will be the Grand Enduro troops along with the Truck Enduro, 2 8-Cylinder Enduros, a 4/6-Cylinder Car Enduro and a Gut & Go Enduro as well. Pits will open for the Fall Frenzy extravaganza at 10:00 Sunday November 1st with racing set to go green at 12:30 pm. A $1,000 to win Legend Race Car feature event with heat race qualifying will also be presented.

Riverhead, NY Oct. 11th.The anticipation and excitement continue to build on Long Island for the Sunday November 1st Fall Frenzy program at Riverhead Raceway and on Saturday it was announced by track management the 40-lap Legend Race Car feature event winner would earn $1,000! The Legend Race Car race will utilize a “cone race” format and be accompanied by a full card of Enduro racing starting at 12:30 pm.

IMG_5583 (2)New track owners Eddie & Connie Partridge and Tom Gatz have been busy along with track GM John Ellwood in formulating the details for this first of a kind event at Riverhead Raceway with the response from both the Legend and Enduro competitors extremely positive. The announcement of a $1,000 payday for the Legend Race Car winner of the Fall Frenzy will indeed peak interest in the tight knit division with at least two former track champions seeking a one day ride for this race.

The announced purse will not only reward the first car over the line November 1st with a handsome payday but also those who finish in the top 10 as well. Second place will pay $400 while third though fifth will be worth $350, $300 & $250. Sixth through tenth will pay $200, $175, $150, $125 & $100. Those finishing 11th through 26th will earn a minimum of $50 but Ellwood indicated that lap money would be solicited for the Fall Frenzy 40-lapper and be added to the lower half of the purse.

The 26 car Fall Frenzy field will be arrived at via heat race qualifying with drivers drawing for their heat race starting positions as they register at the track Sunday morning when the pits open at 10:00 am. The INEX race procedure used at Riverhead Raceway in 2015 will be the format for the November 1st spectacular with the winner of the first heat earning the pole for the feature, while the winner of the second heat will start on the outside pole and so on down through the field. A $100 registration fee will be charged to the owner/driver with $30 of that fee going towards a pit pass while the remaining $70 goes directly into the race purse. All other team and crew members will pay a $30 pit fee.IMG_1531 (2)

A “B” main would be contested if 35 Legend Race Cars or more attempt to qualify in the heat races. The winner of the Spooky Spectacular Legend Race Car event Saturday October 24th at Wall Stadium along with the Battle of the Sound Legends winner Sunday October 25th at the New London Waterford Speedbowl will have guaranteed starting spots in the Fall Frenzy but must first attempt to qualify through the heats races.
