Dan Jones Memorial Legends Race May 12th at Riverhead Raceway

This off season has been a tough one for the Riverhead Raceway family. So many good people have passed away this winter and spring, too many to list.

This week another long time supporter of so many Riverhead Raceway teams passed away, Dan Jones.

Here is a quote from Justin Bonsignore NASCAR WMT driver who was on the receiving end of so much help from Dan.

“Dan Jones was all about helping everyone whether it was with painting body panels, or buying tires and parts. Since Riverhead is going to honor him with a May 12th  30 lap Legend Car race I am going to put up an additional $251 to the winner of the race.  There is no better way to honor Danny than to do what he would do, pay it forward! If you feel the same and want to contribute, message me”

Justin already has raised additional money for the winner of the race and will be raising money until the May 12th. He will be at Riverhead May 5th looking to raise more money. Justin will also looking to land a INEX Legends car ride  for the race so he can be in the Dan Jones Memorial  race himself  honoring his long time friend.

Timmy Solomito has also joined in supporting the race through his company Natural Designs donating  an over-sized winners check for the feature event winner of next weekends race!

If you see Justin at Riverhead do as he is doing,  give a few dollars to pay it forward in memory of Dan Jones.

Update: Justin has let us know that almost $1,000.00 has been added to the winners payout plus there will be additional money for second place, third place and fast time.

OMINOUS WEATHER FORECAST FORCES RIVERHEAD RACEWAY TO SHELVE SATURDAY NIGHT CARD

Riverhead, NY May 12th.

Faced with a ominous forecast calling for perhaps two and a half inches of rain coupled with temperatures not getting above the mid fifties, Riverhead Raceway owners Eddie & Connie Partridge and Tom Gatz called off Saturday nights NASCAR Whelen All American Series program.

The call was made Friday morning in an effort to allow loyal competitors and fans ample time to make other plans for Mother’s Day eve, a point that was appreciated by many teams judging by their posts on various social media outlets.

Riverhead Raceway will try again this Saturday night May 20th as the Granite State Pro Stock Series treks southbound to Long Island for a 100-lap event. Joining the GSPSS on the NASCAR Whelen All American Series program are the NASCAR Modifieds, Figure Eights, a 30-lapper for the Blunderbusts, Super Pro Trucks, INEX Legend Race Cars, Mini Stocks and a Truck Enduro.
