Spencer Wet, Looks To Their Upcoming RoC Event
by Gary Spaid
Heavy all day rains on
Thursday have forced track officials to cancel racing on Friday,
May 26. “The grounds are just too wet,” commented track promoter
John White. “We have puddles all over the grounds. The track
will be ok, but no one can get in and park.”
This will set the stage for the RoC modifieds to take to the track on
Friday, June 2. Joining the full blown modified teams will be
the New York Super Stocks in their first appearance at Spencer
in 2017. Last year Bob Frisbee Jr. won the Super Stock opener at
Spencer. In the five Super Stock races run at Spencer in 2016,
there were five different winners.
As for the RoC division, it was Mike Leaty picking up the Spencer June
RoC win in 2016. Starting in 1994, with the birth of the RoC
qualifying series, Spencer Speedway has seen its share of top
named drivers taking the series wins; Chuck Hossfeld (5 wins),
Jan Leaty (4 wins), Mike Leaty (4 wins), Daren Scheer (2 wins),
T.J. Potrzebowski (1 win), George Kent (1 win) and J.R. Kent (1
win). Between the Kent’s and the Leaty’s the series races seem
to be a “father-son” event at Spencer.
Race time on June 2 will be fifteen minutes earlier than normal, starting
at 7 p.m. sharp.
Spencer Speedway is located just fifteen minutes east of Rochester, NY,
along Route 104 in the Town of Williamson. Spencer Speedway is
the local “NASCAR Place to Race” for Central New York in 2017.
Points earned each week at Spencer are counted as part of the
national NASCAR Whelen All-American Point Chase.
