Ferris Mowers Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series fueled by Sunoco Head to Spencer Speedway –
Williamson, N.Y. – (May 31, 2016) – Mike Leaty of Williamson, N.Y., has been a staple on the Ferris Mowers Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series for the past several years and this Friday, the series heads to the track where Leaty cut his teeth, Spencer Speedway just East of Rochester, N.Y.
Leaty has been a track champion at Spencer and continues to race weekly at the track in the Sunoco Modified division on Friday Nights.
“Spencer Speedway is home for us and it has played a huge role in my family’s racing history,” stated Leaty. “Every time the Series heads to Spencer it is a big night for our family, we really look forward to it and enjoy it. Hopefully we can enjoy it with a victory. That would truly make it special.”
While the Leaty name is synonymous with Spencer so are several others that participate with the Race of Champions Series. The Catalano and Lewis families also race Spencer on a weekly basis as well as participate in the Series.
“The track has given a lot of racers a great start and a place to race on Friday nights,” Leaty added. “The track has been a staple in the New York racing community for so many years. All of the great drivers in Modified history have run here at one time or another. Friday night will be another page in the history book. We’re looking forward to writing our own page.”
