Lernerville Speedway introduces Hall of Fame

Lernerville Speedway introduces Hall of Fame


Sarver, PA (February 8, 2009) Over the course of the 40th Anniversary Season of Don Martin’s Lernerville Speedway, General Manager Gary Risch Jr.,  PR Director Eric Westendorf and Rappin’ on Racin’ & Trackside host Don Gamble had extensive discussions about the lack of and need for a Lernerville Speedway Hall of Fame.  Those discussions have come to fruition and the Inaugural Class of the Lernerville Speedway Hall of Fame will be inducted at the Annual Awards Banquet later this month on Saturday February 28 at the Days Inn in Butler.


The names will not be announced until the Awards Banquet, but a quick scan of the Lernerville All Time Wins List and Track Champions will offer fans some insight as to whom the individuals may be.  As such, this will obviously be the year fans will want to be in attendance at the Awards Banquet to honor the “Legends of Lernerville Speedway”.  There will be some glaring omissions as every worthy driver, car owner, track employee, media member, etc. cannot all be inducted at the same time.


That said, this class will represent the “Best of the Best” from the 41 years history of the Action Track.  The members of the Inaugural Class are essentially no brainers and were a consensus agreement between Risch, Westendorf and Gamble.  Future classes will be determined by an esteemed panel of local dirt racing experts; Bud Daum, Linda Fennell, Carol Gamble, Don Gamble, DJ Johnson, Dave Kittey, Lou Long, Mike Lysakowski, Gary Risch Jr., Eric Westendorf, Walt Wimer and Tom Zuck.  Each year a handful of drivers will be inducted at the Annual Awards Banquet.


This years’ Lernerville Speedway Annual Awards Banquet is less than three weeks away.  The Gala Event, (held at the Days Inn in Butler, PA), is scheduled for Saturday February 28.  Doors open at 5:30, with a delicious “All You Can Eat” Buffett served at 6:00.  Tickets are on sale now for $35 by calling the Speedway Office Monday-Friday 9:00AM-4:00PM at (724) 353-1511.  Come join us to celebrate the “Legends of Lernerville” during this momentous occasion!


Rooms can be reserved at the Butler Days Inn by calling (724) 287-6761.  Tell them you are attending the Lernerville Banquet to receive the special rate of $62 for a room with two double beds or $67 for a room with a KING SIZE bed.  The Days Inn is equipped with a full service bar which becomes the host of the Unofficial Awards Banquet After Party.  There is also an indoor pool and jacuzzi on site.
