Oval Track Promotions and Roaring Knob Officials Hard at Work

January 9th, 2016


MARKLEYSBURG, PA (January 8, 2016) Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex track owner and promoter Rick Jones is pleased to announce that Oval Track Promotions and Roaring Knob officials are hard at work putting together the 2016 season schedule. To date we have signed on with UFo for the July 2nd Ernie Jones Memorial paying the super late model $3,000 to win!” The UFo Championship will return to the Knob later in the year for a two day King of the Knob and Big Kahuna weekend. The Annual King of the Knob paying $2,000 to win will be on Friday followed by Saturday’s Big Kahuna paying $4,000 to win. New in 2016, the UFo Championship has been extended to include a touring schedule for the Semi-Late class (limited, econo, steel block & crate late models).   Specified UFo “SuperNova” events will now feature 2 powerful late model divisions in 1 program!

2016 session will be exciting for our fans, “Once the weather brakes, we’ll be starting resurfacing the speedway with new clay” Jones stated. New in 2016 will be the Classic Car’s who will be running on a week on–week off schedule. Our primary divisions will remain the same with super late models along with our crate late models, street stock, chargers and 4 cylinders running on weekly bases. Mini wedges, ¼ midgets and go karts will be on the Sunday schedule.

“I’m asking our crate drivers and car owners to contact me as to which rule package to use RUSH or FasTrack” Jones stated. “RUSH has always supported Roaring Knob but I need to listen to our drivers”. Several of the tracks in the region are running their own crate programs and I need to evaluate which is best for our drivers and Roaring Knob.

Like many other promoters car counts have declined for various reasons, we need to evaluate our rules packages for both our street stocks and chargers division. I want to make sure we are in line with rules that resemble Dog Hollow, Elkins and Tyler County Speedway, I’m hoping to have something our next week for the drivers to review.
