Story by Bill Henry
The New England Antique Racers will be appearing at the
“Remembering Danbury Speedway” event at Bethel Motor Speedway on July 21, 2018. Michael Hager , of the Bethel Motor Speed way, is inviting all NEAR members to bring their cars to the Speedway on Saturday July 21, 2018.
The pit gates open at 3 p.m. The track is offering 2 warm up heats and a feature event for the cars that want to take to the track.
Mike also said please bring cars for a still show, he has plenty
of room. Last year, those who attended enjoyed the event.
There will be two free entry passes for each car , whether
static or running. The main event for the track cars will be
the Ev Pierce memorial race. These folks put on a good show,
with wheel to wheel racing.
Members of the SNYRA reunion committee will be there with Danbury items. The P A system was turned over to members who raced at Danbury, to recall the memories of the track. The Grand Marshal will be a driver from Danbury, as well . Ev’s family will be there also.
So come on out for a great evening of nostalgic racing, and honoring a driver who raced for decades in our cars of yesteryear!
Hope to see you there!!!
