Fremont Truck Teams Disqualified

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Saturday, May 21, 2022

 

FREMONT, Ohio – Following the feature event for the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks at Fremont Speedway on Saturday, May 14, inspections were held on the top three finishers’ trucks. The first and third place trucks -  #25 and #P51 - were determined to be in violation of the division’s rules and were disqualified.

 

The points were taken away and prize money will have to be repaid to the track. Second place finisher Shawn Valenti has been declared the winner. Valenti now has 70 career wins at Fremont Speedway and puts him just six feature wins away from tying Art Ball atop the track’s all-time win list.

 

Drivers who finished fourth on back will be credited with finishing two spots higher in the official finish and will receive the difference in their purse.

 

Jeff Babcock’s track record during qualifications on May 14 will also be disallowed and Jamie Miller’s qualification time of 17.221 seconds set on May 14 will be the new track record for the truck division.

 

The track’s decision is final and the two trucks who were in violation of the division rules will have to be inspected again to determine if the offenses have been corrected in order to compete.

 

Forecast of severe weather forces Fremont Speedway to cancel

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Saturday, May 21, 2022

 

FREMONT, Ohio – With a forecast calling for rain and the possibility of severe thunderstorms from late afternoon through the evening, Fremont Speedway has pulled the plug on racing for Saturday, May 21.

 

The National Weather Service says the chance of rain from 4 p.m. through the late evening is 70% and greater with a possibility of severe thunderstorms including strong winds and hail.

 

“We didn’t want to put fans and race teams in a potentially bad situation. With the high cost of fuel, we felt it better to make the decision to cancel sooner than later,” said Ryan Schiets of the Fremont Speedway Management Team.

 

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, May 28 on Northern Ohio Truck Center Night featuring the Ti22 Performance FAST On Dirt winged sprints, the MPD Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (non-wing sprints) the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints and the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks.
