Streby Speedway 2016 Season Preview

Posted: April 8, 2016 by strebfest in News / Results

Streby Speedway 2016 Season Preview

With the 22nd season about to start at Streby Speedway in just a little over a week away. I thought I’d give everyone a preview of what’s to come in 2016 at the “Ultimate Bull Ring”.

The Season kicks off on Sunday April 17th which is the first of (11) races scheduled at the speedway. After Race #1 we move into a busy month of May with (3) more points races on May 1st, May 22nd, and a Co-Sanctioned race with the newly formed Streby Speedway Kart Tour on Monday May 30th called “Memorial Day Mayhem” this will be points race #4 at Streby Speedway and points race #2 for the S.S.K.T. the first race of the new touring series was the “Buddha Kinser Memorial #8” at Salem Speedway on January 30th, which was won by Richard Torzilli of Sonoma, CA driving the Jet Motorsports #3, San Jose California’s Frankie Luhdorff was 2nd aboard the Strebfest/Hull Motorsports #71, and rounding out the podium was Lake Stevens Washington’s Allen Terrell driving the Jet Motorsports #5. Points race #5 will be the lone race in the month of June on the 12th. July will also only have one race but it’s the marquee event of the speedway the 10th Annual “Firecracker 40” on July 4th with Potluck BBQ, and Gigantic Fireworks show. This will also be Co-Sanctioned with the S.S.K.T. and points race #3 for that series, and for the first time ever we will have the Northwest Race Reports own Terry Bridges calling all the action Live and Online at Spreaker.com the event will also have a pre and post race show. This years “Firecracker 40” is sponsored by Relevant Rankings.com, and by K-Pro Kart Parts of Stanwood, WA. Points race #7 will be on Sunday August 7th, and the first Non Points race of the year will be held on Saturday night August 20th which we are calling it a night of “racing and Relaxation” as we will have a BBQ and swimming pool open to all. Race #9 of the season will again be Co-Sanctioned with the S.S.K.T. and will be points race #5 for the touring series on Saturday September 10th. Our points racing concludes with Season Championships and Awards on Sunday september 25th. Finally we will end the season with a to be determined date in October with a special format non-points race.

 

Now for the Racers: 2015 Track Champion Ed Harris of Langley B.C. will look to defend his title in the travisrutz.com #8H, but will miss at least the first race of the season, and that could open the door for a new champion in 2016.

19 time track champion Michael Streby of Snohomish will return in his familier blue #7S looking to unseat Harris at the top of the standings.

Granite Falls Matt Streby is coming off his best season ever with (2) A-Main wins including the 9th Annual “Firecracker 40” championship, but is still looking for his first track championship.

After finishing 4th in driver points in 2015 Lake Stevens #35 Allen Terell will only be running a partial schedule in 2016 as he will be busy as crew chief on the Henry Van Dam #33V sprintcar team. But is always a contender when he’s in attendance.

Also from Lake Stevens is Nick Hull who will once again be driving the Strebfest/Hull Motorsports #71, and is looking forward to improving on a great end to the 2015 season. The team plans on fielding a second driver at most races in the #71X.

Last years Rookie of the Year Nick Handly of Sedro Woolley will only be racing a handful of races at Streby Speedway in 2016 as he will primarily be the crew chief for his brother Matt Handly also from Sedro Woolley, WA and will also be running the new predator class with the Cascade Karting Association this summer. Matt Handly plans at making a strong run at the championship and winning races in 2016 aboard the Handly Motorsports #4H as he has been busy making upgrades to his kart this winter.

Jet Motorsports owner/driver Jim Streby recently announced he will not be behind the wheel in 2016, but will still field a two kart team with 2013 “firecracker 40” champion Riley Hood of Arlington driving the #3 and Northwest Focus Midget racer Ryan Cully from Alger will be in the #5 Cully won his first career race just last year driving in just a few races for Jet Motorsports.

Another contender for the championship is Snohomish driver Jeff Berry who is coming off 2 podium finishes to end 2015 as well as winning the “Most Improved Driver” award. “Ground Chuck” has made some significant upgrades to his #99 machine this winter and he may also have a second driver in the 99X from time to time.

Woodinville’s Jessie “Speedy” Gonzalez will be back behind the wheel of the Strebfest Motorsports #39. The 2014 Rookie of the Year is also running the S.S.K.T. where he finished 7th at the BK8 in January.

Arlington’s Rick Sears is fully recovered from shoulder surgery which prevented him from running the full schedule last year. He should be in the hunt for the championship and to win his first A-Main in 2016 aboard the R & J Racing #29.

Also returning from a shoulder injury (which occurred in the first race of 2015) which limited him to just a couple starts is Burlington’s “Haulin” Harry Schaler in the #82. Schaler plans on making a strong run at the championship in 2016.

Other veteran Streby Speedway racers that will be racing partial schedules in 2016 include Anchorage Alaska transplant now from Granite Falls Sylvia Mastej driving the Jet/Strebfest #75. Arlington’s Tyler Hood will return in his #B17 Bug Chassis, and Lake Stevens Andy Jacobson will also be driving the 2nd Terrell Racing Development entry #59 Legend Chassis.

Streby Speedway has also added some new members to the “Mean 18” in 2016. Kenzi Thomas has purchased the TK Motorsports #4 from Tom Kays after Kays announced his retirement at the end of last season. Thomas has given the kart a new paint scheme and new number the #3M. Kenzi raced to a 5th place finish at the first S.S.K.T. race at BK8 in January, but plans on being an owner more than driver at Streby Speedway in 2016 with rookie drivers Maggie Ferguson and Northwest Focus Midget rookie Kaleb Hart behind the wheel in 2016.

Another new member to the “Mean 18” is Bellingham’s Connor Ferguson who will be contending for the 2016 Rookie of the Year aboard is #89K. Connor also finished 6th at the first S.S.K.T. race the BK8 at Salem Speedway.

Lyman Washington’s Kalin Ronk is the newest member of the “Mean 18” as he just purchased a kart from “One Time Motorsports” earlier this week. Kalin has never raced before but plans on running for Rookie of the Year in 2016.

Last but not least is a new member to the “Mean 18” but is not new to kart racing by any means. He is Chuck Knudson of Snohomish, WA. Chuck purchased the #22 formerly owned by “Mean 18” member J.J. Doerner this winter and will debut it as the Uncle Chucks Racing #62 at the season opener. Chuck plans on running for the owners championship more so than the drivers championship as he and Bothell Washington’s Ronnie Cox with split driving duties behind the wheel.

We would also like to thank all our track sponsors that include: Relevant rankings.com, Strebfest Promotions, K-Pro Kart Parts, Joes Racing Products, Murdoch Motorsports, Schaler Appraisal, NW Sprintcar History.com, and a new sponsor for 2016 welcome on board Puget Paintsmiths of Snohomish, WA owned by fellow racer Paul Burdick.

**Playday is tomorrow Saturday April 9th from 11:00AM to 2:00PM, & Race #1 is the following weekend Sunday April 17th-Pits open at 9:30AM, Practice from 11:30AM to 12:30PM, Qualifying at 12:45PM, Racing at 1:30PM
