ProAm Championship Belts Captured at Little E!

September 28, 2015

(Indianapolis) – For the last several years the USAC Honda .25 Dirt Triple Crown has seen it’s finale at Tony Stewart’s Little ‘e, located just outside turn 3 of the famed banks of Eldora Speedway.  Things were much different this year.  With a new trophy sponsor, .25 drivers were anxious to get to the A-Mains.

 

In the past, the weather has gone from warmish to downright cold.  Rains have washed out some track time and racing was cut short.  For 2015, things were different.  Practice was held on Friday from 1-5 pm.  World of Outlaw Driver’s Paul McMahon, Daryn Pittman, and Shane Stewart all made their way over to meet the .25 drivers.  McMahon said on the mic, “Man….. I loved this as a kid.  I grew up racing Quarter Midgets with Jeff Gordon in California.  Those times were the best.  I can’t believe how many cars there are here.”  Butch Lamb caught an interview with Daryn Pittman as he said, “I haven’t been to a Quarter Midget race in a while.  Things have changed.  I didn’t run much dirt in my day, but this is sure cool.”  Pittman had his family with him and was approached by .25 driver, Adrianna Delliponti, who invited Daryn’s oldest daughter to take a seat in her car.  She gave young Taylor an autographed shirt and a photo.  “Wow, how many cars here,” said Shane Stewart.  McMahon, Pittman, Stewart, and David Gravel all raced Quarter Midgets growing up.  As practice wound down, all .25 drivers were admitted free to watch the Outlaws on the big track.   

 

Saturday morning, Mother Nature met up at Little e, with rain.  By 11 am cars were on the track and the surface was good.  At 3:00 Levi Jones, USAC Director asked for 10 - .25 driver’s to join the upper ranks of USAC driver’s for a

fan autograph session.  Due to the late start, the .25 drivers had to decline the offer.  Just over 40 races, heats and a few lower mains were complete by 6 pm. 

 

All drivers were summoned to meet at gate 7, at the big track at 7 pm.  As Midget qualifying was complete, the .25 driver’s were led across the big track to participate on the big 4 Crown Stage at Eldora Speedway!  Tori O’Neal was ecstatic as her dad pulled her Quarter Midget up to sit in front of the full size USAC Midget, the USAC Sprint Car and the USAC Silver Crown.  Mathew Hopkins, dad Shane said, “This was really nice what USAC did for our drivers.  We are just here having fun this weekend and this really tops it all.”

Special thanks to Larry Boos, Levi Jones and Eldora Speedway for making memories for these young drivers.

 

Jonathon Gallagher of  Oxford, PA doubled up this weekend taking the wins in

Honda Hvy 160 & Hvy Honda).  Jacob Ballet of Drums, PA (Briggs Lt World Formula) and Preston Lattomus of Landenburg, PA (Briggs Jr Animal) took their very first National wins this weekend.  Steven Snyder, Jr of Rising Sun, MD (Honda Lt 160), Ray Kable of Sykesville, MD (Hvy World Formula), Adrianna Delliponti of Morristown, PA (Un-Restricted Animal) Gregory Borgeson of Pipersville, PA (Jr Honda),  Mike Thompson of Holland, PA (Briggs Sr Animal), and JJ Horseman of Stroudsburg, PA (Sr Honda) also saw the checkered wave. 

 

Cale Coons of Plainfiled, IN took the checkered first in the 7-car Blue Rookie race as Kanon Posey of Pittsboro, IN took the Red Rookie checkered.  Other Rookie Drivers included Kaine Lowry, Collin Shain, Nick Zwerk, Mitchell Hamilton, Braden Etchison, Owen Healy, and Cameron Watkins.

 

ProAm Belts of Ohio sponsored this event and all A Main Feature winners received a WWE type Winner’s Belt.  The driver’s were so excited as parents hung the belts on their champs waist.  Gold, Silver and Bronze USAC Medallions were also awarded.  Dirt Triple Crown Series Champions celebrated with a SPRITE bath as Victory Lane was held, by car lights, due to the late hour.

 

The USAC Honda Dirt Triple Crown Finale at Eldora for 2015 was a hit!  All total, 69 races were run with 230 cars in attendance.  Although there were late nights, the USAC .25 Dirt Families really felt part of the festivities.   Families closed down the Eldora 4 Crown weekend and headed home around 8:30 pm.
