EMPA SELECTS STSS, GEORGETOWN & FONDA FOR PROMOTIONAL EFFORT OF THE YEAR

Short Track Super Series, Fonda & Georgetown Speedways Selected As EMPA ‘Promotional Effort of the Year’

MILLSBORO, DE – BD Motorsports Media LLC has been selected by the membership of the Eastern Motorsport Press Association (EMPA) to receive the ‘Promotional Effort of the Year’ recognition.

Founded in 1969, EMPA is an organization of professional writers, broadcasters, announcers, videographers and photographers working in the motorsports industry, along with associate and corporate members.

The ceremony and awards dinner, presented by NASCAR, takes place on Saturday, Jan. 11 at the Crowne Plaza in King of Prussia, Pa., as part of the 47th annual EMPA convention.

The distinction – voted upon by members of EMPA – recognizes the BD Motorsports Media-run Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco, Fonda (N.Y.) Speedway and Georgetown (Del.) Speedway.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the EMPA membership,” Brett Deyo of BD Motorsports Media LLC said. “This is a credit to our whole team. There are so many people who work hard throughout the race season on our behalf to keep a touring series and two tracks, located six hours apart, operating successfully.”

The Short Track Super Series broke new ground in 2019 with the most lucrative dirt Modified championship payout in the nation. By winning the Insinger Performance/Sunoco Race Fuels ‘Grand Championship’ encompassing the STSS North and South regions and the American Racer Cup, Matt Sheppard of Savannah, N.Y., will receive $58,500 cash.

The STSS Modified circuit completed events in four states – New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania – while maintaining an average car count of 41.7 per event. 291 competitors took part in at least one Modified event. The Crate 602 Sportsman series saw 232 entrants received over the 11 total races.

The first season for BD Motorsports Media promotion at the historic Fonda Speedway saw an upswing in competitor participation and fans in the grandstand. Among the season highlights were the $53,000-to-win Fonda 200 in September, the nationally televised on MAV-TV ‘Firecracker 50’ in July and a massive ‘Dollar Night’ in May featuring $1 grandstand admission.

A specials-only format at Georgetown Speedway included a number of high-profile events including the two-day Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend with a pay structure of nearly $90,000, the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial and the ‘Blast at the Beach’ filmed for national television by the cameras of MAV-TV.

LAKE CITY, FL – For the first time, lucrative pay structures are being offered in the state of Florida this February.

And the Northeast’s top drivers are responding in a big way.

Anthony Perrego became the latest driver to file his entry for the ‘Sunshine Swing’ Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco inaugural trip to All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Fla.

The half-mile oval hosts an open practice on Wednesday, February 5 with three consecutive nights of racing to follow on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (February 6-8). Both the STSS Modifieds and STSS Crate 602 Sportsman will be in competition.

STSS Modifieds race for $5,000, $7,500 and ultimately $10,000 to win during the three nights of racing!

Perrego will make the trip south driving the Brian Smith-owned Superior Remodeling No. 44.

The second-generation driver from Middletown, N.Y., ranks third on the all-time Short Track Super Series Modified win list with six career victories at four different facilities. Perrego has won with the STSS at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway, Georgetown (Del.) Speedway twice, Accord (N.Y.) Speedway twice, and Thunder Mountain Speedway in Center Lisle, N.Y.

Unlike many of the competitors heading to All-Tech for the first time in February, Perrego has turned laps at the speedway. He was part of a private test for chassis builder Teo-Pro car at the track last year.

“It’s a great facility,” offered Perrego, who was pleased to see the STSS swing scheduled. “The track gets wide and glasses over. I don’t see it as a big motor track. I think we will put on a really good show.”
