Saratoga Springs, NY Two of the nation’s top short track racers, DIRTcar modified star Kenny Tremont Jr. and Supermodified kingpin Otto Sitterly, have agreed to join the already exciting cast of the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s premier racing program, Lost Speedways. The program is set for its traditional “Saturday after Thanksgiving” date, November 28th.
Tremont, the 2015 point champion at the Albany-Saratoga Speedway, is hot off a second place finish in the final Syracuse 200. He will join Sitterly, the leading winner at the super-competitive Oswego Speedway over the last decade, to discuss their enviable careers in the program’s closing segment.
“Last year I interviewed asphalt superstars Reggie Ruggiero and Brian Ross and it was a huge hit,” said event organizer Ron Hedger. “The audience really got into it when they had the opportunity to ask their own questions. Kenny and Otto represent different types of racing, but have known each other since they both competed at the nearby Albany-Saratoga Speedway, so it’s a perfect combination. Besides being great racers, they are also fan favorites.”
The other presentations will include Board Track Motorcycle Racing by Mark Supley, a look back at sports car racing on the streets of Alexandria Bay with Greg Rickes and the early days of Mil-Ray Speedway in Fulton by Ken Parrotte. In addition, John Snyder will recall Victory Speedway at the Orange County Fairgrounds and Bill Ladabouche will talk about the New Yorkers who dominated Vermont’s Otter Creek Speedway back in the day.
Lost Speedways will also feature the traditional memorabilia session, with enthusiasts bringing their treasures to share. The museum displays various items from the collections room, with the emphasis this year on the history of the Syracuse Mile. Participants are asked to have their items ready for display by 11:30 am, with the presentations set to go green at 12:45.
The event, which draws a full house each fall, is free to members, with others paying the normal admission charge. More information on the Saratoga Automobile Museum, located on the Avenue of the Pines in the Saratoga Spa State Park
