We've put a lot of thought into all of it and concluded that while improving the mobile experience may attract younger fans to participate, we still needed to provide a great "desktop" experience overall.  We intend to accomplish both.

Social media appears to have a "drive-by" messaging component to it, Forums need some thought to discuss topics.  Not sure how to bridge that gap but allowing easier access to RNY is a step forward, and that's our goal.

Yeah, forums are dropping by the wayside. Damned social media.

But, as you saw a few weeks ago, we're in the process of making some changes here to hopefully make the site more user friendly...both via mobile and desktop.

Yes, there was a problem. The redirect was changed and was pointing to the wrong directory (that didn't exist).  I am responsible for the screw up, but it's fixed now.  Thanks for reporting it though.

ANDY JANKOWIAK, TYLER BROWN AND SCOTT NEARY EARN 2020 INDOOR RACING SERIES TITLES

TRENTON, NJ - The 2020 Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled by VP Race Fuels championship races scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 13-14 inside the New York State Fairgrounds Exposition Center in Syracuse, NY were canceled as a result of COVID-19.

As a result of the cancellation, the 2020 BELFOR Property Restoration “Concrete” Series champions were crowned based on the current point standings.

TQ Midget driver Andy Jankowiak, Champ Kart king Tyler Brown and Slingshot ace Scott Neary, who were leading in Series points heading into Syracuse, have been declared champions of Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series fueled by VP Racing Fuels.  It is the first championship for each.

Jankowiak earned his first career TQ Midget championship by just two points over Matt Janisch.

“This isn’t the way I wanted to win this championship,” said Jankowiak, who drove over two hours east from his home in Tonawanda, N.Y. to pick-up the award on Friday afternoon at the Exposition Center.  He arrived inside the building as the last of the concrete blocks that had made up the indoor track were being loaded on a flatbed trailer.

“I really invested myself in this deal this year, I wanted this championship bad,” emphasized Jankowiak. “That’s why this is so hard. I think we were ready to go prove we deserved it.”

Jankowiak’s prize ‘The TC Cup’ is named after the late two-time champion Ted Christopher who passed away in a plane crash in September of 2017 at the age of 59. 

“Ted meant so much to so many of us and the fact I got to race him for this championship and now win the Cup in his name means the world to me,” reflected Jankowiak.

Janisch described himself as being “very disapppointed” at not having had the opportunity to contest for the title he lost by just one position in any of the two events that were held inside Allentown’s PPL Center or the one in Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.

Erick Rudolph, a four time series champion, finished third 14 points behind Jankowiak but within striking distance of the title had the two features scheduled in Syracuse, N.Y. been held.

In the Hoosier Tire Champ Karts Tyler Brown won the title by 45 points over Todd Crenshaw.  Scott Neary won the Action Track USA Slingshot title by 35 points over Brett Bieber.   

After the crowning of the 2020 series champions, the focus now shifts to the 2021 Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series.   The series will return to the same venues with stops in Allentown, PA at the PPL Center January 8 & 9, Atlantic City, NJ at Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall on January 29 & 30, Syracuse, NY at the Exposition Center on March 12 & 13.   The series will again have a special non-point “Dirt event” on February 19 & 20 at the Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ.

Plans are also in the works to make-up the cancelled Syracuse Indoor Race, with a possible fourth concrete event in 2020/2021.

Final TQ Standings (Top Fifteen): 1. Andy Jankowiak 256, 2. Matt Janisch 254, 3. Erick Rudolph 242, 4. Tim Buckwalter 235, 5. Briggs Danner 220, 6. Anthony Payne 212, 7. Ryan Barlett 198, 8. Shawn Nye 188, 9. Jeremy Haudricourt 183, 10. Jon Reid 174, 11. Michael Barnes 172, 12. Tyler Thompson 152, 13. Mike Bednar 134, 13. Bobby Holmes 134, 13. Ryan Flores 134.

Final Champ Kart Standings (Top Ten): 1. Tyler Brown 190, 2. Todd Crenshaw 145, 3. Ron Midford Jr., 135, 4. Cale Ross 130, 5. Doug Stearly 128, 6. Mike Perry 126, 7. Ryan Kendall 120, 8. Jeremy Tuttle 107, 9. Cameron Carter 90, 9. TJ Reed 90.

Final Slingshot Standings (Top Ten): 1. Scott Neary 195, 2. Brett Bieber 160, 3. Cody Kline 150, 4. Louden Reimert 140, 5. Dylan Hoch 138, 6. Michael Lapicki 130, 7. Aiden Svanda 122, 8. Jared Silfee 100, 9. Danny Buccafusca 99, 10. Tyler Ulsh 87

TJ LILLY LOOKING FORWARD TO HIS FIRST SEASON IN THE T.P.TRAILERS MODIFIEDS AT GRANDVIEW

VP RACING FUELS BRUCE ROGERS MEMORIAL MONEY MAKER SET FOR APRIL 4

BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 13, 2020 . . . Young TJ Lilly is looking forward to the start of the 2020 season. It will be his first at NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway which is entering into its 58th consecutive season of presenting stock car racing,

The 19-year-old Pen Argyl, PA resident is looking forward to the start of the season when he takes part in the Third Annual V.P.Racing Fuels Bruce Rogers Money Market Memorial set for Saturday, April 4th on the one-third-mile banked clay oval.

Racing Modifieds is actually a change from the original plan for Sprint Cars. He had gotten his start at age 4 in Kid’s Karts, at 11 he moved into Micro Sprints and then at 16 it was on to stock cars.

“I actually was headed toward Sprint Car racing but settled on Sportsman and 358 Modifieds,” Lilly told Area Auto Racing News columnist Randy Kane. “In a season and a half I got three wins at New Egypt Speedway and we raced three years there weekly.”

The plan now is to be a regular at Grandview. It is a lot closer to home. “We need to work on our Saturday night setups, be smart and not push things. My goal has me thinking as a weekly contender who is expecting to qualify for every race and finish every race,” said the 6 foot, 2 inch youngster. “The racing at Grandview is completely different than what I have been doing. There is different competition.”

His dad Travis and his uncle Rick have been big supporters of his efforts. And sponsorship, always important in racing, will come from Stasak Auctioneers, new this year, along with Thresher Mechanical of Landing, NJ and a long list of others.

Lilly, who turns 20 in June, will be going up against some of the toughest talents in Modified racing including Duane Howard, Craig Von Dohren, Doug Manmiller, Brett Kressley, Jared Umbenhauer, Kevin Hirthler and a host of other outstanding talents.

As indicated he plans to be a Saturday night regular with a goal of being a top 5 finisher on a regular basis with some wins thrown in.

He will also be part of the Thunder on the Hill Series specials run at the Bechtelsville facility along with making visits to other special events at area tracks. It will be a busy season.

With $7,500 posted for the winner of the 50-lap Rogers Memorial the event is sure to attract a stellar field of Modified talents. In addition the T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman will be in action on Saturday, April 4. Racing gets the green at 7 p.m. with pits open at 2 p.m. and spectator gets will be open at 5 p.m. Rain date is Saturday, April 11th. Adult admission for the April 4th event is $28 while pit admission is $40. There is no entry fee for the Rogers Memorial and entry information can be found at www.grandviewspeedway.com.

If the rain date is not needed the official season opener featuring the T.P.Trailers 358 Modifieds and T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman will be presented. Adult admission for Saturday night regular events stays at $15 while youngsters under 12 are admitted free.

Enduro and Vintage racers will be in action at 1 pm on March 21st followed by the very popular free-to-the-public practice sessions at noon on March 28th.

Season tickets priced at $350, covering all Saturday night events, remain available. Checks and a return address stamped envelope can be sent to Grandview Speedway, 87 Wilt Road, Bechtelsville, PA 19505 for each ticket being ordered.

Grandview Speedway, operated by the Rogers Family, is located on Passmore Road, just off Route 100 in Bechtelsville, PA, 10 miles north of Pottstown. Info is available at www.grandviewspeedway.com, Facebook or telephone 610.754.7688.

SYRACUSE INDOOR RACES CANCELLED BY ORDER OF NY STATE GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC; REFUNDS TO BE ISSUED

 SYRACUSE, NY March 12, 2020 . . . The 2020 Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled By VP Race Fuels TQ Midget, Champ Kart and Slingshot season championships, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, March 13-14, 2020 inside the New York State Fairgrounds Expo Center in Syracuse, NY were cancelled as of Thursday late afternoon, March 12.

 On Thursday early afternoon, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order prohibiting public gatherings of over 500 people, this in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the state of emergency Cuomo had declared the previous day. The order will take effect Friday at 5 p.m.

 Event ticket holders will receive refunds by contacting their point of purchase ticket outlets.

 “We had full intentions of racing,” Len Sammons said. “The concrete barriers that form the guardrails for the track and the wheel fencing on top of the barriers were completed after two days of work by the Indoor Auto Racing Series staff by late Thursday.

 “The final part of the process was to treat the arena floor with cola syrup mist. The syrup was delivered to the Expo Arena at 1:00 p.m.,” Sammons added.

 “Regrettably, circumstances way beyond our control forced the cancellation of the race.”

 Danny and Davey Sammons, Len Sammons’s two sons, and integral promoters of the Indoor Auto Racing Series, praised the track crew for their efforts. “We just got the barriers down and the fencing up, now we have to take it back down,” the Sammons brothers noted. “It’s not what any of us wanted.”

 The New York State Fairgrounds events for the next 30 days have all been canceled. Though there are thus no present plans to reschedule this race, plans are underway for racing in 2021.

 TQ Midget driver Andy Jankowiak, Champ Kart king Tyler Brown and Slingshot ace Scott Neary, who were leading in Series points heading into Syracuse, have been declared 2020 Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled By VP Race Fuels BELFOR Concrete Series champions.  It is the first championship for each.

 Also adversely affected was the 34th Annual Syracuse Motorsports Expo & Trade Show which was to have been held Saturday and Sunday, March 14-15 in the Center Of Progress Building near the Expo Center. Jeremee Corcoran, show promoter, had to cancel his event, which would have been the 34th running of the March Motorsports Show.

 

 Plans to broadcast the Indoor Auto Racing Series events live on the web by Asphaltvision.tv for the first time were also unable to see fruition. Asphaltvision.tv had partnered with the Indoor Auto Racing Series to expand coverage to a potentially worldwide audience.

OSWEGO SUPERMODIFIED STARS TO CHASE INDOOR SERIES GLORY AT NEW YORK STATE FAIRGROUNDS EXPOSITION CENTER MARCH 13-14

SYRACUSE, NY March 8, 2020 . . . Michael Barnes and Tyler Thompson, two highly regarded Supermodified drivers from Oswego Speedway, have entered the 2020 Indoor Auto Racing Series Fueled By VP Race Fuels events being held inside the New York State Fairgrounds Exposition Center on Friday and Saturday nights March 13-14.

Two days of action will feature complete programs for TQ Midgets, Slingshots and Champ Karts with overall BELFOR “Concrete Series” champions to be crowned on Saturday evening.

Barnes, Oswego’s Supermodified 2016 track champion, and Thompson, the 2019 Oswego Speedway Classic winner, are Jason Simmons Racing (JSR) teammates on the Indoor Series this season. After three events, JSR’s TQ team of Barnes and Thompson rank 11th and 12th respectively in points, after each qualified for the prestigious Gambler’s Classic inside Atlantic City, NJ’s Boardwalk Hall back on February 1st as well as the two early January races inside Allentown, PA’s PPL Center.

Barnes, who was the first driver in Oswego Speedway history to run a sub-17 second lap around the venerable oval in a non-winged car, was immediately impressed with the TQ Indoor discipline his first time out in Allentown. “It’s quick around here,” Barnes deadpanned. “Things happen fast in these cars, just like the Supers at Oswego.”

Barnes, 36, of Mexico, NY, finished tenth and ninth in Allentown and eleventh in Atlantic City. He was a bit more reflective after the Atlantic City race. “I never figured this place out at all,” Barnes remarked. “I was confident coming in but am leaving scratching my head. We could never get the car hooked up.”

Thompson, 17, of Fulton, NY became the youngest driver in Oswego Speedway history to win a Supermodified feature this past summer then, in one of the greatest upsets in racing history won the 63rd Budweiser International Classic 200. “When I won for the first time this summer, to be honest, I realized that winning the Oswego Classic wasn’t a dream, it was a possibility.  That win was a huge boost of confidence,” Thompson shared.

Thompson, a rookie on the 2019 Indoor Series, finished a disappointed 20th in both of the Allentown races after early race problems.  In Atlantic City, Thompson led the field to the green flag from the pole position and managed an eighth place finish, a total change from his teammate’s result.   “Just tried to stay out of trouble in Atlantic City,” Thompson said. “Survive and finish.”

Oswego Speedway has stepped up as a sponsor of the event.  The winner of each of the four TQ Midget Car heat races on both Friday and Saturday night will receive not only a spot in the A-Main but a $50 bonus thanks to Oswego, the home of SuperModified racing.  Dr. Williams Lowe, a long-time supporter of TQ Midget racing, has also posted $200 to the fast qualifier both nights.

N.Y.’s JSR also has fielded a two car Champ Kart team for the 2020 Indoor Series. Allentown, PA winner, Tyler Brown, is in command of the Champ Kart standings following a third place finish in Atlantic City. After finishing 12th in both Allentown and Atlantic City, Dan Kapuscinski is tied for 11th in the Champ Kart order with two events remaining in Syracuse.

The race for the Indoor BELFOR Concrete Series championship will be decided between point leader Andy Jankowiak, Matt Janisch, defending champion Erick Rudolph and Tim Buckwalter after qualifying and feature events are held both nights in Syracuse.

Doors open on Friday at 5:30 and Saturday at 5 pm. Fans are allowed pre-race access to the pit each night for one hour after the doors have opened. Racing will begin nightly with heat races for all divisions with the first green flag on Friday at 7:30. On Saturday, action begins a half-hour earlier at 7 pm.

Tickets are available in a range of different prices through links on www.indoorautoracing.com and the venue box office. Tickets will be available each race night starting at 2pm at the Exposition Center Box office.           

 Race fans can enjoy a double header weekend at the Fairgrounds with the 34th annual Syracuse Motorsports Expo and Trade Show being held at the Center Of Progress Building on the Fairgrounds. This show opens on Saturday at 10 am giving everyone plenty of time to enjoy that show then walk over to the nearby Exposition Center for the races that night. The Trade show reopens on Sunday from 11 to 4 pm.

Sponsorship at a variety of levels to meet every budget is available for the Syracuse event. Interested parties should contact Danny Sammons at 609-888-3618 or e-mail danny@aarn.com.

This was culled from the internet, hope this helps:

Quote
The Freeman is located just off the Osceola Rd., on the Gallo Rd., about half way between West Lyden, and Osceola. If coming from West Lyden, heading West it is a right hand turn on to Gallo Rd. and as soon you turn the hotel will be on your left. Of course if you are coming from Osceola and heading East you would make a left hand turn on to Gallo rd. The Freeman does not look like a motel or hotel, but looks like a big old farmhouse.


Quote
Here is some info on the Freeman. It is not quite a Hotel or a Motel, like one would think. more of an Inn or "Bed and Breakfast" style. I equate it most to like staying at a friends camp. I,personally, like the set up, as opposed to staying at the Montague or whatever and having to go back and sit in a motel room for the rest of the night watching tv in your bed. You can hang out downstairs talk about the days ride, talk about tommorow's ride, etc... I usually also bring a bunch of snacks or munchies, some soda, beer for hanging out and drinking/eating after riding. They have a large industrial fridge is you had to store anything

At the Freeman, bedrooms are upstairs, community area downstairs. They have big screen tv w/ satellite cable, a bar (but it is BYOB and/or beer if you want to drink), some games (washers, shuffle board table). couches, wood stove (last one to bed fills the stove and stokes the fire!), full kitchen (if you want to cook). You must bring your own bedding (pillows, blankets, sheets) and linens (towels). They provide a cooked-to order hot breakfast every morning you are staying there, usually starting at 7am.


Quote
Billy Osmun and Richie Evans purchased the Freeman House as an "investment"back in the early 1980's Used more as a party/snowmobile spot for Richie and his friends during the off season.
