ROB KRISTYAK (Big Block) and Mike Kinney (E-Mods) Get wins at Sharon speedway
Hartford, OH Jun 11, 2011 Sharon Speedway was able to beat Mother Nature for the second straight night on Saturday as all of the racing action was completed despite another two and a half hour rain delay.

After finishing runner-up on opening night back on April 9, Rob Kristyak hadn’t finished in the top five since; however, that changed on Saturday night when the Bristolville, Ohio celebrated with an early birthday presented as he scored the 20-lap Governor Insurance Big-Block Modified feature win. Kristyak turns 33 on Sunday.

Kristyak and Tom Mattocks led the Modified feature to the green flag with Kristyak taking the early lead. Kristyak led Mattocks, John Buchanan, Skip Moore, and Jim Weller, Jr. through the first half of the event, as the first caution appeared at lap 10 for Rex King, Jr. One more lap was scored before Dean Pearson caught the outside wall in turn three.

Back to green, one more round was scored with 12th starting Rex King advancing to fourth before the final caution appeared for Moore, who hit the outside wall in turn three. King advanced to second on the double file restart, and quickly closed on Kristyak. King made several strong bids to the inside, but Kristyak was able to hold on to the top spot.

Coming to the white flag, King got out of shape in turn four, leaving Kristyak to race on to his 10th career victory by a margin of 2.094 seconds in his Gallo’s Auto Sales/Mark Thomas Ford/Gold Connection/Gwinn Brothers Construction/Wedge Motorsports/Dave’s Towing/Bristol Disposing-sponsored #00.

Sharon Speedway

New 12-race “Super Series” to debut in 2018 featuring six $3000 to-win “410” Sprint events & six $2000 to-win Big-Block Mod Tour events

By Mike Leone

November 13, 2017           

(Hartford, OH)…While the 2018 season is more than five months away with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series opener on April 20, Sharon Speedway management has been hard at work crafting an exciting new program to the premiere “410” Sprint Car and Big-Block Modified divisions.  The 89th anniversary season will feature a new 12-race program titled the “Super Series”, which will include six events each for the “410” Sprint Cars ($ 3,000 to-win) and for the Big-Block Modifieds ($ 2,000 to-win) under the Mod Tour, Inc. banner. 

Ever since the “410” Sprints ran weekly in 2010, Sharon has traditionally held Sprint shows as part of Ohio Speedweek and the “Lou Blaney Memorial”. In recent years, some non-sanctioned events were added, which proved successful.  Last year, Danny Holtgraver and Sye Lynch won these events, while NASCAR’s Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell won the Ohio Speedweek and “Lou Blaney Memorial” shows respectively.

In effort to expand the “410” Sprint Cars presence at Sharon in 2018, the “Super Series” will feature an additional six $ 3,000 to-win increased purse events on May 12, June 2, June 30, August 4, August 11, and August 18.

Meanwhile, the headlining Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Big-Block Modifieds will also have their share of special events in 2018. The ground-pounders will battle for  increased purses six times as $ 2,000 will be on the line for their April 28 opener along with May 26, June 23, July 7 for the “Lou Blaney Memorial”, July 21, and August 25.  After a year’s hiatus, the Mod Tour will return to Sharon and will sanction these events. 

“We’re really looking forward to bringing these events to Sharon in 2018,” expressed General Manager Dave Willoughby. “The Sprint Cars have always been an important part of our program.  The drivers and fans have really supported our events well in recent years so we’re excited to give them some additional higher paying events.  Big-Block Modified racers have been clamoring for more higher paying races in the area so this will give them the opportunity to race for more money as well.  Along with these events, we’re excited about Lucas Oil Late Models returning, three All Star Sprint events, the $ 10,000 to-win Penn-Ohio Stock event on June 16, and more for 2018.”

The HTMA/Precise Racing Products RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, Gibson Insurance Agency Stock Cars, and Summit Racing Equipment Econo Mods will continue to make up the balance of the weekly program in 2018. These divisions are coming off a strong 2017 season that saw an average of 32 Stocks, 24 RUSH Sportsman Modifieds, and 21 Econo Mods per night.

Sharon Speedway is owned by the Blaney, Weller, and Kirila Families and is a 3/8-mile dirt track located on Custer-Orangeville Road in Hartford, Ohio near the intersection of Routes 7 & 305.
