KIRKWOOD, NY…Due to popular demand and a strong field of the competitors during their inaugural appearance of the season, the Street Stock division has been added to weekly competition at Five Mile Point Speedway. The class will be run weekly through July 3rd at that time an evaluation will be made on the number of remaining Street Stock events for the season. The next race for the class is this Saturday, May 29th.
The first event for the Street Stock competitor’s was held this past Saturday night at Five Mile Point Speedway. As is often the case action can speak louder than words and the Street Stock drivers proved that as they put on a fantastic display of racing in front of the capacity crowd. Sixteen year old driver Chris Strohl recorded the win this past Saturday night in his first ever appearance at the quarter mile.
