FASTRAK Companies International is excited to announce that the tracks and dates are set for the 8th Annual Memorial Day Weekend “racing spectacle” on dirt. The 2013 FASTRAK Triple Crown will kick off on May 24th and conclude on May 26th. Its 3 action packed nights of racing that fans have grown to love year after year that FASTRAK provides. Each event pays $2000 To Win/$250 To Start the race. Teams are reminded that each of these events will be point races for the FASTRAK City Chevrolet Touring Division also. In addition, as customary, a special award is created for the driver with the highest point total over the course of all three events which make up the FASTRAK Triple Crown. The quest for that massive 60 pound King’s Crown trophy is always what they’re going after for three grueling days of searching for that elusive checkered flag. At the end of Sunday evening the driver having the most points in this “mini” race series will be the victor. The ceremony is always special for the Triple Crown Champion with the crown, cape and scepter presentation to to fans of the “FASTRAK Universe” to witness.
It starts officially on Friday night May 24th at Beckley Motorsports Park in Prosperity, West Virginia. The 3/8th mile racing facility deemed “The Fastest Dirt Track in the South” and was the host track of the Inaugural $250,000 FASTRAK World Championships in 2012. The event drew 186 entries in 2 exciting nights of racing. They are very excited to be “kicking-off” the 2013 FASTRAK Triple Crown paying $2,000 to win. This race will also not only be Round #1 of the FASTRAK Triple Crown, but it will also be the “BIG” Mike Faykus Sr. Memorial Race.
On Saturday night May 25th we return to the ½ mile Wythe Raceway nestled off I-81 in the beautiful Allegheny Mountains of “The Commonwealth State” in Rural Retreat, Virginia. This is a “super-fast” ½ mile dirt facility that offers some exciting 3-4 wide racing and is a favorite of the regulars on the FASTRAK tour. Fred and Susan Brown are the pioneers in race promotions and have operated the Wythe Raceway for over 40+ years. Their son Perry Brown is one of the “best of the best” in track prep. Every time FASTRAK Companies International race events come to town the track is smooth and perfect. The race event in Round #2 will pay $2,000 to the winner. This will be the only stop at Wythe Raceway on the FASTRAK City Chevrolet Touring Division schedule until Labor Day weekend’s “10th Annual Pro Late Model Nationals” which is always a BIG ONE!!
The final stop on the 2013 FASTRAK Triple Crown will take place at the 4/10th mile Princeton Speedway located in Princeton, West Virginia. The finale will pay $2,000 to the winner. It will also be the final night to rack up the points to decide who going to be the 2013 FASTRAK Triple Crown Champion. Freddy Mooney has done an extraordinary job getting the facility back up and running again. The Princeton Speedway is located right off I-77 a few miles into West Virginia north of leaving Virginia and is in a great location. The Princeton Speedway is very unique and stands out as a similar configuration of NASCAR’s Richmond facility. Last year the show drew 40+ FASTRAK Late Models delaying the event by 2 hours just to allow time for race haulers and fans to get in because of the “massive” turn out on a Sunday night.
So now you know the Tracks and dates for the 2013 8th Annual FASTRAK Triple Crown. The layout of each of the tracks making up the 2012 FASTRAK Triple Crown poses unique characteristics which promise to present challenges to each of the drivers vying to become 2013 FASTRAK Triple Crown Champion. Historically, the annual FASTRAK Triple Crown has routinely seen an exceptional brand of close and intense racing in all 3 events whereby, race fans are the winners. Triple Crown Weekend is quickly approaching. Pro Late Model teams throughout the southeast are preparing for the Memorial Day Weekend extravaganza. The Triple Crown is a staple on the FASTRAK/City Chevrolet Touring Division schedule where numerous teams have competed in the annual Memorial Day Weekend event since its inception.
