EPPING, NH- The rejuvenated Star
Speedway will have a display this weekend at the "Racers
Expo" in Marlborough, Mass., allowing race teams the
opportunity to speak with representatives about the
upcoming season. Team registrations for the 2012 season
are well ahead of last year's pace, as is the support
from businesses looking to be a part of an exciting
season that lies ahead at the Epping oval.
"I think that the racers responded last
year to Star opening and I'm guessing that the fans will
respond this year," stated Ted Broadhurst, owner of
EKeys 4 Cars, the title sponsor of the headlining
Modified division. "The Modifieds were a solid division
last season, but I think it's only going to get better
this year. The word has gotten out."
In fact, the EKeys 4 Cars Modifieds
already have more than 20 race teams pledging their
support to Star Speedway for the 2012 race season, with
more expected by opening day in May. Head Tech Inspector
Pete Frappier admits that the calls from prospective
race teams inquiring about the EKeys Modifieds have been
Registration forms for all divisions
will be available at the Expo, along with membership
forms, SBM 125 lap sponsor sheets, and the 2012 season
schedule. Star Speedway will also be a part of the "Racin'
Preview 2012" in Portland, Maine on February 24-25, with
at least five race cars on display there.
Allen's Coffee Brandy has signed on to
sponsor what will be called the "Allen's Outlaw Late
Models". Woody's Auto Repair, headed by ISMA
Supermodified driver Russ Wood has signed on as sponsor
of the Strickly Stock class, which will replace the
Rookie Stocks at Star in 2012. Both of these classes
have had a very encouraging list of early entries. The
entry level Roadrunners will be a part of the weekly
action as well.
American Racer Tires, SPAFCO Chassis and
Sunoco Race Fuels have each added their names to the
EKeys Modified sponsor list. American Racer and Sunoco
will also contribute point fund money to the other
weekly divisions for every tire and gallon of gas sold
during the season.

race season include: TJCO, with Hard Charger Awards,
Danger Designs with Best Appearing Awards, Kayem Hot
