Silver Spring Speedway


9 October 1999

MECHANICSBURG, PA – Silver Spring Speedway’s last regular show of the season on Saturday was postponed when persistent rain began to fall at approximately 7:45, following the completion of five qualifying events.

            The speedway will resume the racing program with the show’s next qualifying event this coming Saturday, October 16 beginning at 7 p.m. 

            Three Street Stock qualifiers for the 35 entries were won by Tim Fedder, Bill Deardorff and Rod Clouser.

            Two of the three heats for the 35 Late Models were completed; taking the wins were Tommy Reed and Sterling Kinard.

            Still remaining to be completed on the racing card are one more Late Model heat, five Sportsman heats (49 entries), the consolation races and the three main events.

            Two of the three divisional track championships have been clinched already.

In the Late Model division, Ron Little, 36, of Dover won his first ever track title at the wheel of the No. 43.  Little began his racing career in the Street Stocks at Silver Spring in 1985 and moved into Late Model competition in 1989. Little is a three-time feature winner this season at Silver Spring.

Kirby Sites, 33, of Hamburg, also recorded his first track title at Silver Spring in the Street Stock division. Sites, who made Silver Spring his home track in 1999, is a former Street Stock and Pro Truck racer at Big Diamond Raceway.  Sites has two wins on the season to date.

Still to be decided are the Super Sportsman Track and Tour titles. Carmen Perigo, Jr., 28, of Stoystown leads the track standings by a mere 65 points over Bob Fannsy, 41, of Dauphin. Neither driver has ever won a track title in the Sportsman division at Silver Spring.

In the tour standings chase, Fannasy leads Perigo by 130 points. Although Perigo has never won a Sportsman title since he began racing in the division in 1996, Fannasy, who’s been in Sportsman competition since 1983, has a former tour championship from  1994.

Both Perigo and Fannasy each have five victories at Silver Spring this season, while Fannasy has one additional win on the Super Sportsman Tour.

Silver Spring Speedway will present the Second Annual Go-Kart Open on Saturday afternoon, October 23. The Race Car Flea Market will be held on the grounds on Saturday, November 6, followed by the track’s annual awards banquet on Saturday, November 13 at the Radisson Hotel & Convention Center.
