Danny Sammons, Kerry Meitzler Return To Promote Kutztown In 2008

KUTZTOWN, PA - The promotional team of Danny Sammons and Kerry Meitzler will return to the Fairgrounds at Kutztown Speedway in 2008.
The duo reached an agreement recently after a successful first season working together at the Kutztown, Pa., fairgrounds oval in '07.
Once again, Sammons and Meitzler will present three-division programs of 600cc Micro-Sprints, 270cc Micro-Sprints and Slingshots through the summer months at the one-fifth-mile clay oval.
A tentative 2008 Opening Day is slated for Wed., May 14.
All racing will be contested on Wednesdays next season, with the exception of the annual Kutztown Fair Races, run on back-to-back nights in August. Dates will be firmed in the coming weeks.
"Last year was both a learning experience and a positive one at the same time," said Sammons, reflecting on the '07 season, in which Jason Van Doren (600cc Micro-Sprint), Jeff Hartman (270cc Micro-Sprint) and Shannon Smith (Slingshot) were crowned track champions. 
"I was extremely happy with the way the show ran, and - because of that - plan to focus more of my efforts in 2008 on making the show entertaining and enjoyable for the fans."
In '07, Sammons and Meitzler drew praise for running quick, efficient shows. Often, the entire program was completed in full by 9:30 p.m., sending fans and racers home early on a work-night.
Because of the quick shows last year, there will be a change in the starting times for '08. Warm-ups will be moved back to 6:45 p.m. (from 6:30 p.m.) and racing will start at 7:15 p.m., instead of 7 p.m. This will allow traveling teams some extra time to get to the track.
Special events will also be incorporated into the '08 schedule. Sammons noted that the XCel 600 Modifieds have expressed interest in competing at Kutztown again next season.
He would also like to hear from Jr. Micro and Slingshot racers to gauge interest in possible events.
