Korner & O’Brien Set to Face Off in Round Four of MSD Legends Series at Thompson

STONINGTON, CT – Noah Korner began the 2016 Midstate Site Development (MSD) Legends Series’ season with four consecutive victories. His streak was broke during round three of the Series when Jordan O’Brien swept both races. Now the two drivers head into Sunday’s event as the front runners in the US Legends Cars field.

Despite O’Brien’s two victories on June 5, Noah Korner still carries a healthy 25-point advantage into the penultimate event of the championship season.  O’Brien will have two qualifying opportunities and two races to close that gap before the final event of the points season on August 7.

Glenn Korner, who currently is fourth in the standings, has consistently been improving throughout the 2016 season.   He finished second to his brother and teammate, Noah, on May 20, and registered third and fourth place finishes, respectively, on June 5.

Evergreen Raceway Adds Three Karting Events

By: Gene Ostrowski

July 6, 2016

Kart-FlyerSt. Johns, PA (7/6/2016)- For the first time in years, Evergreen Raceway held two Karting divisions in conjunction with their Independence Enduros last Sunday.

The interest was there and due to input from the teams on hand, the speedway has decided to add three Karting events to their season schedule.

“It’s great for the little kids and little kids at heart”, noted speedway co-promoter Gene Ostrowski.   “It’s a win-win. They’re excited about racing on the Daytona of Karting tracks and everyone at the track was thrilled with the show that they put on. Plus, they are truly the future of our sport.”

There will be two divisions that will race in conjunction with the track’s Enduros on the following race days: Sunday August 7, Sunday September 4 and Sunday, October 2.

The divisions are Youth Caged and Junior/Adult Caged. The rules can be found by clicking the rules tab on the speedway website.

There will be a $15 pit entry fee per Kart team member for pit entry and the Kart race registration is set at $10. The track transponder system will be used for scoring. Each division will run a 5-lap heat race, followed by a 12-lap feature.

The top 5 in each Kart division will receive a trophy as long as they pass post race tech.

The next Evergreen Raceway event is slated for Sunday, July 10 with the Evergreen Modifieds, Late Models, Factory Stocks and Four Cylinders, PLUS Kids Big Wheel Races.   Grandstand admission is just $8. Children 10 years of age and younger are admitted for free with a paying adult. Pit gates will open at 10:30 AM. Practice will kick off at 12:30 PM and the first heat race will roll out at 2:00 PM. The grandstands open at noon.
