REGISTRATION OPENS FOR

LEGENDSTOCK 2012 AT BETHEL MOTOR SPEEDWAY


June 14, 2012


BETHEL, NY – Over the last four years, the LegendStock event at Bethel Motor Speedway has gained notoriety for the vast amount of talented drivers in both the Legends and Bandolero classes, and it has become known for providing exciting racing as the competitors chase the three-foot tall guitar-shaped trophies that have become a trademark of the event.


On August 4, 2012, Bethel Motor Speedway will present the fifth annual LegendStock event – LegendStock 2012 – and the entry list is expected to once again be an impressive one, with many drivers expressing an early interest in the event.


Today, the Bethel Motor Speedway office opened online registration for the event, and drivers are encouraged to visit www.legendstockshootout.com for more details and a link to the online registration form.


LegendStock 2012 will again serve as an INEX Legends Asphalt Nationals qualifier, and is sure to draw in top talent from across the Northeast and beyond. Pro division driver Daniel Hemric has been the overall winner in each of the last three years, and every Legends driver in attendance will be looking to top the list of winners, which is sure to provide intense competition and wheel-to-wheel action. The entry fee for Legends is $70 prior to July 21st, and $85 after that date.


The Bandolero race at LegendStock 2012 will also be a qualifier, with Bandolero drivers having their entry fee waived due to the support of the track’s Young Racers Program and program sponsor Quality Bus Service. The Bandolero portion of the event has yet to see a repeat winner, and the door is wide open for yet another first-time winner to be crowned as last year’s winner, Kaz Grala, has moved into the Legends division this year.


Grandstand admission for LegendStock 2012 is just $6, and fans will be treated to plenty of great racing, as the Sportsman and Pro Stock divisions are also on the schedule for the night.

ADDED PRESTIGE FOR LEGENDSTOCK 2012 AT BETHEL MOTOR SPEEDWAY


March 7, 2012



BETHEL, NY – Since its inception in 2008, the annual LegendStock event on the quarter-mile asphalt oval at Bethel Motor Speedway has captured attention. This year, the draw of the event is expected to grow even more, as it was announced this week that the race will not only serve as an INEX Legends Asphalt Nationals qualifier, but as an INEX Bandolero Nationals qualifier as well.


The Bandolero division has grown in leaps and bounds in recent years at the speedway, with many young drivers choosing the class as a starting point for their entrance into motorsports competition. At Bethel, the entrance of these young drivers into racing is supported by the Young Racers Program, which is open to drivers age 18 and under in the Legends and 4 Cylinder classes as well.


With the designation of the LegendStock race as a qualifier for the Bandoleros, the young drivers will take center stage alongside the Legends cars for the prestigious event that has become known for the three-foot tall guitar-shaped trophies awarded to the winners. While the Legends portion of the event has seen two different overall winners in the last four years, the Bandolero race has yet to have a repeat winner. With the LegendStock 2011 Bandolero race winner Kaz Grala moving into the Legends this year, the door is wide open for the competition to crown yet another new winner.


As is the case for all 2012 shows at Bethel Motor Speedway, the pit entry fee will be waived for Bandolero drivers for the LegendStock event, thanks to support from the Young Racers Program and 2012 program sponsor Quality Bus Service.


The excitement surrounding Bethel Motor Speedway’s 52nd anniversary season has already hit high gear, as the track continues to offer tickets for the Bandolero that is being raffled off to benefit the Young Racers Program. After winning the LegendStock 2011 Bandolero race, Kaz Grala and his family donated the race-winning car, and the winner will be drawn from no more than 500 tickets on Saturday, March 31st. The track is also conducting a search for Ms. LegendStock 2012, and will accept applications until March 17th. More information about both of these can be obtained by calling the speedway office at (845) 319-7908.


The season is set to kick off at Bethel Motor Speedway on April 21st, with open practice for all divisions and the opportunity for Legends and Bandoleros to take part in feature races for INEX national points. The track is planning to split divisions for the event. Bethel’s regular season will begin on April 28th, and run through October 7th, with all scheduled races falling within the INEX national points season.

BETHEL MOTOR SPEEDWAY ANNOUNCES FIFTH ANNUAL LEGENDSTOCK EVENT


January 11, 2012


BETHEL, NY – Five years ago, plans were made for the inaugural LegendStock event, to be held on the quarter-mile asphalt oval at Bethel Motor Speedway in New York. LegendStock was developed with the idea of providing an arena for some of the most talented Legends drivers in the Northeast and beyond to go wheel-to-wheel in a prestigious event unlike any other Legends event in the area. Through the course of the first four events, LegendStock gained widespread notoriety, with drivers travelling from numerous states for a shot at the three-foot tall guitar-shaped trophies that have become a trademark of the event, and the bragging rights that come with a victory. The event has taken on additional significance in recent years as it has also been an INEX Legends Asphalt Nationals qualifier, and drivers in last year’s event were able to compete on a new asphalt surface that was laid in preparation for the 2011 season.


It has been announced by the Bethel Motor Speedway management that LegendStock 2012, slated for Saturday, August 4th, has been approved by INEX as a qualifier, once again making it a “don’t miss” event.


The race will once again feature a $3,000 purse, with $1,500 earmarked for the overall winner. Division winners will receive the unique trophies that have drawn attention since the race’s inception.


All eyes are sure to be on the entry list once registration is open, as the event draws in talent from across the Northeast, up and down the east coast, and other areas. Last year’s event saw a record number of competitors make the trip from down south. It is expected that the 2012 roster will once again read like a “Who’s Who” of Legends racers.


For the past three years, North Carolina native Daniel Hemric has been unbeatable, taking home the Pro division and overall wins in 2009, 2010, and 2011. His last victory came just weeks after returning to competition following knee surgery that sidelined him for part of the season. Connecticut’s Michael Gervais was the overall winner at the inaugural LegendStock.


Several first-time winners collected division wins in the 2011 event, including 14-year-old Young Lions competitor Matt Pappa, a Bethel regular who battled up front with Hemric for much of the race. Pappa went on to collect the 2011 Legends championship at Bethel. The Semi-Pro win went to Corey Gordon, in his first-ever trip to take part in the event. Masters driver Jimmy Sylvester became the first driver in the event’s history to capture the win in the absence of Minnesota driver Tim Brockhouse.


Bandoleros also take to the track as part of the LegendStock event, as the up-and-coming drivers in this class race for the same guitar-shaped trophy awarded to the Legends winners. As is the case with all races at Bethel Motor Speedway, the entry fee is waived for Bandolero drivers as part of the track’s Young Racers Program, which is being sponsored by Quality Bus Service for the 2012 season. The Bandolero race has yet to see a repeat winner, with victory in the past events being claimed by Matt Evans (2008), Andrew Bickford (2009), Jordan Lamothe (2010), and Kaz Grala (2011). After winning last year’s event, Grala donated the race-winning car to the Young Racers Program and the car is being raffled off, with all proceeds going to the program.


More information about LegendStock 2012 will be released in the coming weeks, and will be available online at www.legendstockshootout.com, or by calling (845) 319-7908. More information about Bethel Motor Speedway is available at www.bethelmotorspeedway.com.
