Port Royal Speedway: March 15
Sammons And Chemidlin To Continue 410 Sprint Car Racing Partnership
BORDENTOWN, NJ- The wheels are up and Davey Sammons is ready to fly again with John Chemidlin’s No. 747 in 410 Sprint Car competition.Chemidlin’s EG Tire and Auto Center of Dayton, N.J. will sponsor Sammons for the fourth consecutive season in 2014.“John is a great supporter of dirt track auto racing,” said Sammons. “I’m so glad he’s again a part of our race team. John has been a huge motivator for me, especially after the disappointing year we had in 2013.”
Sammons also announced that Bob Greene’s Pioneer Pole Buildings has also signed on to return as an associate sponsor.
The team will focus its weekly efforts on Saturday night competition at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway, with veteran crew chief Jim Shriner joining the effort.
“I’m very excited to be working with Jim,” said Sammons. “He’s been able to direct several drivers to their first 410 Sprint Car win. We’ve been close and I believe Jim will make the difference so we can attain that goal.”
Sammons will also run in selected special events at Williams Grove (Pa.), New Egypt (N.J.), Bridgeport (N.J.) and during Pennsylvania Speedweek. He also plans to support area STP World of Outlaws and All Star Circuit of Champions series events.
Sammons, 25, struggled this past season while racing on Hoosier tires for the first time. He finished a season high third at Port Royal Speedway, where he was tenth in the final point standings. He also set fast time in the PA Speedweek event at Pa.’s Grandview Speedway, but power steering problems later hindered his efforts in the race.
“We want to focus on Port Royal first,”said Sammons. “Once Jim (Shriner) gets us headed in the right direction, we’ll begin to branch off to other venues.”
A new GF1 chassis Sprint Car will debut at the Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2014 sponsored by Sunoco and distributed by Insinger Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa., the weekend of January 10-12.
Danny Sammons, Jamie Berkenstock, John Cameron, Mark Richards and John Snook will continue to be valuable members of the team.
