Turkey Derby XLV Rules Package Announced; Wings Included

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

WALL, NJ- For the first time since the inception of Wall Stadium’s inner oval, the Hoosier Mid-Atlantic ATQMRA powered by VP Racing Fuel will feature wings for a Turkey Derby event beginning this Thanksgiving weekend.

During the previous off-season, in collaboration with ATQMRA board members and speedway officials, the decision was made to require all ATQMRA vehicles to race with wings at Wall Stadium in 2018. From both a safety and competition standpoint, the wings have been a proven success, thus leading to the decision to mandate a winged aero package for 45th running of the Turkey Derby.

Along with the wing requirement, the following rules package will be enforced at Turkey Derby XLV:

  1. 2017 Indoor Engine rules will be allowed.

  2. The minimum weight requirement is 850 pounds with driver post qualifying/race.

  3. A maximum width of 55 inches measured at the bulge of the tire from the outside of the right rear to the outside of the left rear will be mandated.

  4. It will be required that all cars run an outdoor RR tire. (LC5 10 inch, USAC 13 inch).

An entry fee of $40 will be charged to all competitors for this non-points event. Heat race line-ups will be set by group qualifying time trials. Furthermore, the 30-lap feature line up will be set by a redraw per car count, per the ATQMRA rulebook. For more information on the ATQMRA rulebook, please visit ATQMRA.com/about-me/.

The Hoosier Mid-Atlantic ATQMRA portion of Turkey Derby XLV is set to take place on Saturday, November 24th, 2018. In preparation for the event, paid practice sessions will be available to all competitors on both Saturday November 10th, and Saturday November 17th, 2018.

Greg Hodnett Memorial Race

Greg Hodnett

WATERFORD, CT - The sudden passing of 410 Sprint Car racer Greg Hodnett last month struck the Hoosier Mid-Atlantic ATQMRA community. Hodnett, a member of the Pennsylvania Posse made his legacy racing in an area that is considered the home-base for many ATQMRA teams. The ATQMRA honored Greg at the last Wall Stadium Race by running a 27 lap feature event and each car had Hodnett colored ribbons hanging from the back of the cage during the race, that were provided by Sean Case.

The Greg Hodnett Memorial Race, sponsored by ATQMRA driver, Jeff Kot is set to take place this Saturday, October 6th, 2018, at The New London – Waterford Speedbowl in Connecticut. Through this sponsorship, a donation of earnings will be sent directly to the Hodnett family, courtesy of Kot and the ATQMRA. 

“Greg Hodnett meant so much to racers all across not only the northeast but nationwide,” explained Kot. “This is a phenomenal opportunity to honor him and also assist his family during this difficult time.”

Many of the ATQMRA drivers and crews follow the dirt sprint car series and not seeing the Hodnett name out on the track gives all the teams a bit of a pause as they remember Greg and his achievements as well as a great family man and friend. He’ll be in our thoughts in Waterford as we take the green flag in The Greg Hodnett Memorial Race.

Pit gates for all racing activities at The New London – Waterford Speedbowl, including the ATQMRA Greg Hodnett Memorial open at 2:00 PM Saturday. The racing action is set to begin at approximately 5:00 PM, with heat and feature races to follow. For more information, please visit the speedbowl’s website at speedbowlct.com.
