270cc Micros & All Star Slingshots In June 27 Spotlight At Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway

Newmanstown, PA - While all five weekly divisions will be present, the June 27 spotlight will shine squarely on the visiting All Star Slingshots and the 270cc Micro-Sprints at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway. Kim Glass of Kim's Kreations, Myerstown PA, is making certain of that fact.

The Newmanstown, PA oval will play host to the third annual Slide at the Clyde, a National Tour event for the All Star Slingshots. The final program in the month of June will also find a special race on tap for the class that has been one of the headliners at the Clyde for many, many years as the 270cc Micro-Sprints take part in a feature event dedicated to the memory of Charlotte Hartman, mother of a three-time track champion of the 270cc division.

With the car shows behind us and February flying in and leaving with a fury, folks it’s time, racing season is right around the corner. Just a reminder to those of you that did not receive calendars to sell for your member obligation, the work parties are the weekend of March 14/15 and March 21/22 from 9-1. I will give plenty of notice that the work parties are a go providing the weather cooperates. A List of opportunities that we need to accomplish, is a thorough cleaning of the garage. We have obtained Large containers for the metal refuse and another for general residual waste. Also my “ultimate” task to complete is giving our club a new facelift, a fresh coat of paint to freshen the looks and show our customer base how much we care about the appearance. So guys and gals put your best painting face on and come out to make “YOUR” Club look awesome. Everyone is encouraged to help even if your obligation is fulfilled, come on out for the fun and fellowship. Part of any successful organization is the people who comprise it’s membership, and we have the best, hands down. In 1958 five men had an idea…..Kenneth B. Hinerdeer, Pherl K. Weaver, Norman E. Lentz, Earl W. Hagey, and Clyde Martin. Have you ever stopped and thought about how profound their idea has become. To create a racing entity that has evolved to what we enjoy today. We all need to thank them in spirit for their vision, all are gone now, but I bet they pull up a heavenly chair every Saturday night in racing season and enjoy what they have created. God rest their souls.

Newmanstown, PA -  If you're a fan of good old, classic short track racing on a banked oval of clay...with competitors dicing side by side, inches apart with the drivers' arms furiously flailing on their steering wheels because there's no wing to lock down the metallic steeds they are pedaling, then brother, we've got a weekend for you...
Following the the season's second event for the mighty Midgets of the American Racing Drivers Club at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., the cars and stars of ARDC will make their very first appearance - ever - at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway in Newmanstown, Pa. The 2015 campaign might be the 76th for the oldest Midget racing sanctioning body in the USA, but the July 4 race will be historic because it's the first time the illustrious organization competes at one of the region's finest Micro-Sprint facilities.
