Track PR Report
Wall Stadium promoter Jim Morton has finalized the schedule for the 36th annual running of the “Turkey Derby.” As has been the case since the outset, Turkey Derby competition is always held during the daylight hours and is presented on Friday and Saturday (Nov. 27 and 28) of Thanksgiving weekend. This year, Sunday afternoon action has been added featuring Enduro style racing.
Friday will be a busy first day of Turkey Derby with practice being offered for all eight divisions that will see competition on the weekend. Late Model stock cars will headline Friday’s racing activities as they compete in a 75-lap feature event. The INEX Legend Cars will compete in a 25-lapper and the Flanagan Retail Development Factory Stocks will wrap up main event action on Turkey Derby Day 1 in a 20-lap feature. Friday will also feature qualifying for all three divisions plus qualifying for the Calabreeze Pools Sportsman cars, the Street Stocks and the Red Bank Sleep Shoppe Modifieds.
Saturday, November 28, will feature double Modified stock car action with 100-lap main events for both the tour type Modified stock cars and the Red Bank Sleep Shoppe Modified stock cars. In addition, the Sportsman cars and the Street Stocks will each compete in 25-lap main events while the A.T.Q.M.R.A. Three Quarter Midgets will wrap up their season and crown a 2009 driving champion in a 25-lap feature race. In addition to the main event action and practice for all divisions, both the tour type Modifieds and the T.Q. Midgets will compete in qualifying events on Saturday.
For the first time ever, late-November racing action will be carried over to Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend as the shore speedway presents another of it’s popular “$5 Family fun Days.” Heading the Sunday card will be the popular NEETS Enduro Series and that will be joined by the INEX Legend Cars and the 4C SuperModifieds.
Morton also announced that the track will be open for paid practice sessions on Saturdays November 14 and 21. The paid practice sessions, which are being offered in preparation for the Turkey Derby, will begin at 11:00 a.m. and run until 4:00 p.m. both days.
Wall Stadium is located on Route 34 in Wall Township, N.J., just one mile north of Garden State Parkway exit 98 and Interstate 195 exit 35B. The speedway office is open from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Information and Turkey Derby entry forms are available by calling 732-681-6400 and at www.wallspeedway.com.
