Fonda Speedway’s Gearing Up For A Fan Favorite, ‘Dollar Night,’ This Saturday Evening

Story By: RON SZCZERBA / FONDA SPEEDWAY – FONDA, NY – This Saturday, May 7 at the “Track of Champions” Fonda Speedway the management team of BD Motorsports Media LLC presents one of the most popular events of the 2022 season with “Dollar Night” featuring $1 grandstand admission.

What great entertainment value this special event provides and all of it for only $1!

All regular divisions will be in action including the Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman, the Montgomery County Office for Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman, the Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks, and the Fonda Fair Four Cylinders.

One year ago, Stewart Friesen returned to Fonda Speedway on Saturday evening after competing the night before in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Darlington and dominated the $4,000 to win Sunoco Modified feature event. The event was the first of the 2021 Thunder on the Thruway Series of six events between the Fonda and Utica Rome Speedways with a great crowd on hand on a cold night by the Mohawk River.

Other winners on Pig Skin Pros Night at Fonda last year on May 8 were Jason Greco (1st career win in the Swagger Factory Apparel Crate 602 Sportsman division), Nick Stone (Algonkin Motel Pro Stocks), Kyle Dingman (1st career win in the Montgomery County Office for the Aging Inc. Limited Sportsman division), Ken Hollenback (SOHC) and Slappy White (DOHC) in the Fonda Fair Four Cylinders.

The Mohawk Valley Vintage Dirt Modified Series were also on hand one year ago with John Flach (Modified), Stephen Denton (Sportsman), Bryan Scofield (Antique), and Curtis Condon (Late Models) taking the wins in the feature events.

Friesen’s win was his second of the 2021 season at the “Track of Champions”, and he was followed by Bobby Varin, Mike Mahaney, Craig Hanson, and Ronnie Johnson.

“I felt like I let all my local fans down last evening in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Darlington while running in the second position late in the race and getting caught up in a wreck,” Friesen told Fonda Speedway announcer Chris Moore in the FX Caprara Mike Cole Memorial Victory Lane one year ago. “I love it here at Fonda, we have a great race team, and the track was hammer down fast tonight, the fastest it’s been in a long time.”

This year the first event of the Thunder on the Thruway Series between the Fonda and Utica Rome Speedways will be Saturday, May 28 at Fonda followed by another Thunder Series event at Utica Rome on Friday, June 3.
