Let’s go to the show!Brett Deyo Motorsports Media & the Hall of Fame are joining forces to send a race fan and their lucky guest to the $10,000 to win Clash At The Can event at the Penn Can Speedway on June 12th. “It is full-bore this time of year” a bustling Brett Deyo said from his Boyertown, PA home base as continues to prepare for the “Clash”, taking place in just 11short days. Deyo, Along with his writing duties for the Reading Eagle and Area Auto Racing News, began his involvement in racing 15+ years ago dating back to his coverage of an event at the Kauneonga Speedway, a paved quarter-mile track in White Lake, N.Y. Brett Then made his first endeavor into the world of motorsports promotion a decade ago with the Ed Strada Sr. Memorial event at the Lake Moc-A-Tek Speedway. Since then, Deyo’s brand of racing promotion has set the modified racing world on fire & fans into a state of racing induced bliss, assembling a veritable who’s-who of modified racers from New York, Canada, Delaware, Pennsylvania, wherever racer’s race modifieds. Offering good purse money, at driver & car owner friendly race tracks with with a zest for aggressive bonuses and contingencies Deyo is fast building a racing promotion in the way Billy The Kid (no, not that one) would gather a posse, riding through town fast, with guns-a-blazing. Here’s how the give-a-way contest will work. Via the Hall of Fame Facebook, fans will be able to view a photo trivia question to win 2 tickets to the Clash at the Can. Fans will send their answers to dirtmotorsportshall@gmail.com, or via private message on Facebook, then correct answers will be placed into a dirty old hat, shaken a bit, then one lucky fans name will be randomly selected as the winner.

For more information about Brett Deyo Motorsports Media Promotions go to: www.bdmotorsportsmedia.com OK, You Drive.New for the Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame’s fan-driven Facebook page, two new weekly programs, where the fans get to call all of the shots, yet again. Fans asked for it, Fans got it, In the Hall of Fame’s new “Driver of the Week” program. Fans will submit their nomination’s weekly for their pick for “Driver of the week”, tell us why they feel their driver deserves the award for that week and those drivers will then featured on the Hall’s Facebook page. Also new, is the “The Hall of Fame: Instant Classic”. Yesterday’s first installment of this new and exciting fan-feature, was a focus on Bobby Varin’s miraculous win in the Victoria 200 event at the Utica Rome Speedway. Varin’s season at “The Action Track of the East” was off to an uncharacteristically slow start for the Sharon Springs speed merchant, and starting 14th, the prospects for changing his luck against a virtual “murderer’s row” of a starting lineup all gunning for the $10,000 top prize, weren’t looking so hot. Through a 79 lap green flag run to begin the 100 lap feature, Bobby and his Dover Brake 00 mount found their mean streak, seizing the lead from a more-than-game Jimmy Davis and never looking back, a physically and emotionally drained Varin, needed two tries to hoist the victor’s trophy aloft in victory lane, however, hoisting the $10,000 winners check, was done with the greatest of ease for the defending champ of the Victoria. Each & every Thursday we will highlight a fan nominated “Instant classic”, which can be culled by fans from an individual race, a special show/event or the efforts of an individual driver performance, the open nature of this will allow fans to determine what makes these moments in our racing history special to them, and tell other race fans about it. In the coming months, stay tuned to the Hall for more great promotions and fan driven content. The Hall of Fame will be open to the public daily Tuesday through Sunday from Noon to 5 pm.Our Great Sponsors & partners:Dig Safely New York – We Care Trash Removal – Area Auto Racing News – Parts Plus – Jim Bush Food Auctioneer – Village Of Brutus – Azenda Bond Catering – Fulton Speedway – Brett Deyo Motorsports Media – Dirtcar Northeast Next Hall of Fame Event:Food Auction – Tuesday June, 19th at 6:30pm Selling a variety of meats, foods & candies – Food and Drinks will also be available at the event – Jim Bush Auctioneer (315) 587-2330or (315) 945-5429For Information Contact Ed at (315) 246-9825 or (315) 834-6607 The Class of 2012Jack Johnsonhttp://www.dirthalloffame-classiccarmuseum.com/page24.html Alton & Carole Palmer – will be the recipients of the 2012 Northeast Modified Hall of Fame ‘Gene DeWitt Outstanding Car Owner’ Award.http://www.dirthalloffame-classiccarmuseum.com/page25.html Brockville’s Cheryl Kirkland – Co-recipient of the 2012 Gater News “Outstanding Women in Racing Award.”http://www.dirthalloffame-classiccarmuseum.com/page23.html Chasis Maven, Billy Colton – Mechanic of the Year Awardhttp://www.dirthalloffame-classiccarmuseum.com/page21.html Pioneer in Racing Ovide Doironhttp://www.dirthalloffame-classiccarmuseum.com/page20.html Dianne Tobias – Co-recipient of the 2012 Gater News “Outstanding Women in Racing Award.”http://www.dirthalloffame-classiccarmuseum.com/page19.html “Mr. Small Block” – Pete Bicknellhttp://www.dirthalloffame-classiccarmuseum.com/page18.html Need more information?
