ARMA Races / Holiday Wishes
« on: December 26, 2014, 02:35:37 PM »
The first rounds of holiday fun are almost behind us.  We hope that everyone enjoyed the time spent with family and friends either in person or in spirit.  Time with those we love is a gift far above any bought in a store!  We have been blessed to spend time with many of our friends and extended family members over the past few weeks and we are looking for more visits to come! :)  May everyone enjoy the blessings of the rest of the holiday season!

Wow!  That is all we can say- WOW!  What a weekend!  It was great to see so many racing friends from years past show up to drive or just stop by and say “Hi!  We’re here to support you!”.  It was heartening to watch racers show that it isn’t always about being number one, or the fastest or the best…sometimes it is more important to support those who are in a fight bigger than that.  Hopefully many became aware that there are those in our racing family who have faced down the cancer demon before, and there are some who have lost those dear to them from this disease.  We cannot thank everyone enough for donating their time, resources, spirit, and hugs this weekend.  It is our hope that this positive energy reaches all of those facing the challenges this disease creates.  I would like to take the time to specifically thank some other people and groups who were influential in making this event such a success.  We are very proud to say that thanks to this inaugural effort we will make a donation close to $2500!!!  Anyone sending a donation for an auction item can write the check directly to Chesapeake Cancer Alliance and mail it to the ARMA address.  PLEASE let me know who I have forgotten!  I want to acknowledge everyone involved.

Our additional thanks are extended to the following:
•   Citizen’s Volunteer Fire Department- At the end of the weekend they made a decision among the board that they were turning over all of the money collected at the gate and not charging us for the use of their facility.  This is quite a generous donation from a group that relies heavily on these funds for their use.
•   Jimmy Hutchins- The friendly face that you probably saw at the gate belonged to this man-the head honcho from Backyard Boyz.  He pulled an 18 hour day on Saturday!
•   Dave and the CVFD Dirt Crew- They worked tirelessly all weekend to provide whatever was needed to make the track its best.  They have already begun thinking about ways to improve it even further for its next event.
•   Fawn View Manor Farms and the Archer family- All of those pretty straw bales were donated by this family.
•   CVFD Concession crew- For providing yummy food by the track and keeping everyone full of “Firehouse dogs”
•   Bev Crowl/Teresa Pomraning/Myron Pomraning- The “family crew” cooked and served food from the concession stand on the hill.
•   Andrew Dalmas and family-They cooked and fed all of the racers and their families on Saturday night.  And, as if that wasn’t enough- they donated all of the proceeds from their sales of chicken to the public!
•   Tri-State Trophies- Our friends at the trophy shop donated all of the medallions for our weekend of fun.
•   !st North Carolina Battery C- Darren, John and crew set up an awesome display for the public and donated what was needed for those who wished to fire the cannon.
•   Legends of the Fog- Kyle, Jeff and Dawn donated their time to get costumed up and interact with our “big and little kids” during the trunk or treat.
•   Tim Alexander- Head flagging and keeping me straight was appreciated more than you know!
•   Todd & Casey Lagler, Lou Filos and Rodney Mackey- We appreciate you taking the time to corner flag and keep us all safe!
•   Tinker Moats/Tyler Kline- You were great on golf cart duty!
•   Darren Houck- Your help being my “legs” and running back and forth for whatever I needed (sometimes before I knew I needed it!) was a lifesaver!
•   Jennifer Lagler, Diane Williams, Tim Alexander, Phil Lytle- Wonderful contributions to the silent and live auctions.  We appreciate the donations.
•   Mason-Dixon Lawn Mower Racing Association- We appreciate you moving and coordinating your finals race so you could come out and be with us for this event.  We look forward to seeing you more in the future.
•   Disorder at the Border/Billy & Melissa Woods-Thanks to all the drivers and their families for supporting the event and giving us great entertainment on Saturday evening!

Can’t wait until next year!!

Come on down!  Just a reminder that we need everyone to preregister for this event using the googledoc link below.  We want to be sure we have enough food for everyone.  Don't want anyone going away hungry!  Dinner Saturday is free for racers and their families.  LOTS going on right now- can't wait for the weekend!!


We are super excited about the upcoming race for cancer. Below is a poster that will provide details about the events for the weekend. Since this poster is for the public, it does not mention the dinner. We will be hosting a free meal for all racers and their families after we conclude racing for the day on Saturday. Below is the link to register for the weekend. Please complete so that we know how much food we need. It will also help us plan for the bus we are taking over to the Legends of the Fog haunted attraction Friday night (ticket costs to follow shortly- bus is free but we are checking into a group rate for Legends). We are holding a "trunk or treat" for the kiddos as part of the event. If you are interested in participating, please bring some "treats" and feel free to dress you and/or your mower for the event. Feel free to email or post for any additional details. Can't wait!!!

ARMA Races / September 13th & 14th Wiconisco and York PA
« on: September 15, 2014, 06:54:20 PM »
Well, Mother Nature claims another one! After working all week at Wiconisco Speedway Brian was forced to cancel due to bad weather. Joey Chambers, I know you can relate!! This race will be rescheduled for September 28th at 2:00.

York Fair on Sunday drew a huge crowd! Fair Directors told us that we outdrew the demo derby! Everyone we spoke to told us what a great event it was and how impressed they were with the skills of the drivers! Gotta echo those sentiments- wonderful job by all. Thanks to everyone for coming out to support the event. We hope to return next year with some track changes. Watch for the early bird schedule for details.

Wonderful weekend with friends! Thank you to Team Cheese for the pizza run and table delivery for those of us too busy talking to come eat. Thank you to the Deeter crew for building an awesome fire pit. S'mores and chatting around the fire was great! Thank you to Tim Alexander, Richard Miller, Rick Miller and Mike Hales for all of the on track help. Can't wait until this weekend!!!
