(WOODHULL) – Woodhull Raceway is set for a big night on Saturday evening, as the annual Scott Dennison Memorial will take place sponsored by RLB Trucking. The memorial race will take place with the Street Stock division, with the Crate Late Models being given the week off from competition.
Scott Dennison was an avid racer of Super Stocks and ATV's, who had as big a passion for racing as he did life. Dennison was also an avid hunter- always wanting to be the guy that shot the biggest buck. He always had that fire and competitive spirit in all that he did. It was an ATV accident on the frontstretch at Woodhull that claimed Dennison's life. Every year since, Woodhull has paid tribute to Dennison with the Scott Dennison Memorial race.
This event has in past seasons been competed for in the 360 Late Model division, the closest division to what Dennison raced in the Super Stocks. But with the 360 Late Models dissolving into the Crate Late Models for 2017 and with many Crate Late competitors being on the road for RUSH Touring events- Woodhull officials have moved this prestigious event to the Street Stock division for 2017 and beyond.
“This event is a special night for a lot of people at Woodhull Raceway,” said track owner and promoter Ted White.
“We make this event a priority, and with that, want to see this race carried out with a full field of cars and great competition to truly memorialize Scott’s passion for racing the right way.”
This race for the Joe Willcox Performance Automatics Street Stocks will be thirty laps in length, paying $600 to the winner. It will be a regular points-paying race, following the Woodhull procedure of drawing for heat positions and handicapping the top twelve drivers from the heat races.
Saturday night will also see the Street Stocks compete in their second of four Joe Willcox Performance Automatics Clash For Cash races. Six lucky drivers will drawn to compete in a six-lap dash, winner take all. Jared Hill picked up the first Clash For Cash victory several weeks ago.
Also on the racing card for the night will be the Insinger Performance 370 Modifieds, NAPA Crate Sportsman, Daughtery’s Auto Sales & Service Mini Stocks, Woodhull Auto Supply Front Wheel Drives, Daugherty’s Auto Sales Warriors and Hobby Stocks.
Fans can find their way into the grandstands Saturday at 4:30 for only $12 for adults 13 and up. Seniors 65+ and ages 8-12 will be $6. Children 7 and under are always free at Woodhull Raceway. Pit passes have been set at $25.
Our weekly Early Bird Special runs from 4:30-5:30 and offers $1 off general admission. Woodhull Raceway offers plenty of space for free camping on site. The green flag for the first set of heat races will be dropped by Scott Lyon at 6:30.
