ARDC Looks Ahead to 2016 Season



     Mother Nature may have put the period on the 2015 season for the competitors of the American Racing Drivers Club but not before Steve Drevicki and his DeGre Engineering Race Team captured back-to-back championships in both Driver and Owners points.


     Drevicki becomes the first driver since Andy Martin to capture back-to-back titles.  Martin was the ARDC Champion in '06 & '07. 


     Trailing Drevicki for the 2015 title was 2013 ARDC Champion, Trevor Kobylarz and car owners, R/T Racing's, Dyke and Carey Becker.  Ryan Greth, Bruce Buckwalter, Jr. and Brett Arndt rounded out the top five in driver points.  With three different drivers capturing wins in Mike Heffner's No. 27, Heffner finished third in owner points followed by Wayne Lesher and Bruce Buckwalter, Sr.   PJ Gargiulo, Brett Wanner, Jim Radney, Shawn Jackson and Nick Wean finished sixth through tenth in driver points while car owners Scott Arndt, JHG Racing, Marilyn Wanner, Jim Radney and Bill Jackson captured the comparable positions in the owner's competition.


     Ryan Greth and Tim Buckwalter led all ARDC competitors with three wins each while Steve Buckwalter and Brenden Bright each captured a pair of feature victories.  Danny Stratton, Brett Wanner, PJ Gargiulo, Jim Radney, Bruce Buckwalter, Jr. and Drevicki picked up single wins during the season.


     While it is still early for many tracks to be announcing dates for next season, ARDC is well on their way to completing their plans for the new year.


     The 2016 season will open at the Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway (LANCO) on Saturday April 2nd.  ARDC will spend the Fourth of July weekend at Linda's Speedway on Friday and then return to LANCO on Saturday, July 1st and 2nd.  ARDC will join USAC's Eastern Storm on June 12th at the Susquehanna Speedway Park. 


      Plans are also under way for the return of the USAC Midgets for another round of co-sanctioned events with ARDC.  Rico Abreu captured the wins and the hearts of the fans in the East when he made his first visit to Path Valley and Lincoln Speedways. 


     ARDC will host its annual meeting on Sunday, November 8th at the Topton Legion at 10:30am.  All interested parties are welcome.
