Riverhead 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
