Pocono Raceway Announces All-New Kids Club
Includes Automatic Entry for Kids to be Named “Honorary Starters” of Future Pocono Races


LONG POND, PA (April 4, 2014) – Pocono Raceway and their official mascot, Tricky, announced today they will start a Kids Club for younger race fans, ages 14 and under. This membership will feature an exclusive welcome package, at-track benefits, two member-only events during the year and automatic entry into a drawing where one lucky member will be selected to wave the green flag to start one of Pocono Raceway’s ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards or Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tire races in 2014. 

“One of my favorite things is the look on younger fans’ faces when they watch a race live at Pocono,” said Pocono Raceway President/CEO, Brandon Igdalsky. “Over the last few years, we have made a conscious effort to not only improve, but also to add to our kids-centric programs. Our annual Bowlopolis Kids Day (taking place Saturday, June 7) has grown each year, the introduction of Tricky and his Kit Kamp was greeted with rave reviews and the creation of the Kids Club is another piece to the ever-evolving kid initiatives we are putting in motion.”

 After becoming a member, kids will receive a welcome bag containing their membership card, two-pocket folder, writing utensils, Tricky the Fox hero card, stuffed Tricky animal and more. A lucky kids club member will have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be the Honorary Starter for either the June 7 Pocono 200, July 5 Pocono Indy Lights race or the August 1 ModSpace 125. Kids Club members will also receive free admission, with ticketed adult, to all Friday and Saturday race weekend events at “The Tricky Triangle.”

 “We hope to add more to the Kids Club, not only this year, but moving forward” said Igdalsky. “We think kids, and their parents, are really going to enjoy the benefits which come with being a Pocono Raceway Kids Club member. As a father of twin, nine year old girls, I can personally tell you the membership perks are ‘kid’ approved.”

For more information and to join our Kids Club, visit www.poconoraceway.com/kidsclub.

 Tickets to all three of Pocono Raceway’s NASCAR and INDYCAR race weekends are now available, with Kids (ages 12 and under) Sunday Grandstand tickets being offered at half price. To purchase tickets, please visit www.poconoraceway or call our ticket office at 1-800-RACEWAY (1-800-722-3929).

PRESS RELEASE AMERICAN THREE QUARTER MIDGET RACING ASSOCIATION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

COMING EVENTS: April 19, Mahoning Valley Speedway, Lehighton, Pa.

                                   May 17, Wall Stadium Speedway, Wall Township, NJ    

ATQMRA 2014 Season Opens With Triple Crown Race at Mahoning Valley Speedway

 

(BRODHEADSVILLE, PA 4-3-14) The American Three Quarter Midget Racing Association (ATQMRA) is set to kick off on its 58th season of TQ Midget car racing with the first main event of 2014 taking place at Lehighton’s Mahoning Valley Speedway paved ¼-mile oval on Saturday evening April 19.

Mahoning Valley is considered one of the fastest tracks that the TQ’s race on as speeds exceed 100 mph and hold the record as the quickest cars to ever record a lap there when Matt Roselli circled the speedway in 8.825-seconds on September 29, 2012 at better than 101-mph.

The season opening Mahoning race will also serve as the first in the “Triple Crown” events. New for 2014, a special three-race series of features will be held starting at Mahoning Valley then onto Bethel Motor Speedway in White Lake, NY and conclude at Oswego Speedway’s inner oval as part of the Bud Light Classic Weekend on August 30.

Aside from the regular feature earnings, there is an additional $1500 that will be divided among all race teams who partake in all three Triple Crown races.

The TQ’s of the ATQMRA have a long and rich history of winged and non-winged racing that stretches across five decades. The club will hit tracks throughout New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey this season and with the add-on incentive of the Triple Crown it is a great enhancement to an already solid product.

Ryan Tidman and the Boyd Racing Team captured their third consecutive ATQMRA championship last year and are set for another title run starting with the April 19 lid-lifter at Mahoning Valley. Matt Janisch beat Tidman in last year’s opener at Mahoning.

They will have plenty to deal with as with the likes of Roselli, Buddy Sload and Mahoning’s own multi-time champion Earl Paules, Jr. Tidman and Roselli are the active leading winners at Mahoning with five victories each. Race time is at 6:00 p.m.

Complete info on the Triple Crown and all of the 2014 season can be found on the club’s website at www.atqmra.org. Additional news can be accessed on facebook.com/ATQMRA and Twitter @ATQMRA.
