EVENTFUL WEEKEND INCLUDES CHECKERS FOR KAM FUELED RACING !!
We won our qualifying heat race which was a step in the right direction and thrilled the new fans we made earlier in the day… read on !
QUICK RESULTS 6-18-16:
We went back to a more comfortable set up for the early track conditions and took off from outside pole starting position in the heat and the #22 never looked back for the heat race win !! It was fun to see owners Alex and Steve during cool down lap, clapping and smiling. In the 25 lap main event the #22 Weso’s Italian Restaurant and Bar BRC Late Model started on the pole (first ever pole at Grandview) with 19 other hammer heads in tow. Led 4 laps before 7 time champ Chuck Schutz over took the lead and went on to win. We finished 11th in the feature. We’ve already started searching to help with side bite and grip during the slick feature track conditions.
First and foremost, let me start by thanking the dedicated and hardworking crew on the #22 KAM Fueled Racing team… Al Yusko, Bob Auch and JD Nathan, there are many others behind the scenes but every team needs a core like these guys. Al has been Mr. consistent through the years helping during weeknights and weekends, Bob has been hauling and maintaining regularly and JD helps as time permits while doing a fine juggling act with 2 very young beautiful children and his super-hot wife (HI Kendra!!). Oh, Kendra can JD help more often now?? LOL… Others include Kylie, Secret agent, Hunter, Alex, Matt, Steve, Ken, Dan, and competitors from the 46 and 72 teams that have been more than helpful numerous times without a hitch. A true team effort. The heat race win Saturday night was dedicated to Bob Auch for his years of help and expertise during my various racing stints, he is giving it a break for a while, thank you Bob, you know you are welcome to return ‘whenever you see fit.
A HUGE congrats to Chuck Schutz and his entire ‘’ONE’’ team on their BRC Late Model win Saturday night, as you know he and his crew have been instrumental in helping us all season and continue to show us what truly great sportsmanship is all about... A great bunch. Congrats to Jeff Strunk on his win in the 30 lap TP Trailers modified feature, his first of the season and congrats to Jordan Henn and Craig Whitmoyer in their 2nd and 3rd place finishes in the special Sportsman 40 lap race.
v A very special thanks to the owners and staff of Cooper Morgan’s Public House for hosting a wonderful open house from 1 til 4 Saturday where we had a great crowd of friends, fans, competitors, staff, photographers, patrons, car owners and crew as we enjoyed a day full of grilled foods, drink specials, #22 car on display and a prize wheel with tons of giveaways courtesy of Yuengling Brewery. A special thanks to Nicole and Devin who were instrumental in keeping foods, drinks and supplies flowing during the busy day and also Joe Adams for his lending of ‘’Grillzilla’’ the nicest barbeque grill on earth !! Thank you Bob and Al for hanging all day, moving the car to 2 different events, and crewing of course…THANK YOU !!
v Joe Adams did an impromptu Low Down and Dirty interview on the outside deck at Cooper Morgan’s where the entire Bartorillo family came up and said ‘’hello’’. Barkley the family dog even stole the spotlight as he wore his KAM Fueled Racing shirt to the event, LOL !!! Thanks Whippy, Meatwad and Eric from LD&D for attending also !
v Thanks to Wendy Wojnar for her help all day and to Missie Fegley for the treats all day too, they kept me going for sure !!
v Keith Gerhart was a trooper and had a ‘’guess where Geezer will finish’’ competition going on all day and had over 300 guesses… the winner received 2 tickets to a regular Saturday race and free parking for the season. Thank you Keith for having your Hosensack Poker Club on our car this season !! Great to see Peggy and your grandkids at the event too of course, the brownies were awesome !!
v The ‘’Meat-N-Greet’’ at the Grandview ticket window from 5 til 6 was huge success as we had the car on display, tons of giveaways like signed racing shields, autograph cards, Giorgio’s Pizza shirts, Yuengling shirts, can coozies, cupcakes and sunglasses and more !! Geezer also gave out 22 meatball sandwiches to make it an official ‘’Meat-N-Greet’’. Meatballs courtesy of Giorgio’s Pizza and subs of Exton, Pa. THANK YOU GRANT !! The entire team and owners were there to meet many new fans and answer questions about this new team. Again, the Low Down and Dirty crew where doing live interviews, thanks Whippy for the fun chat. Great crowd enjoyed the festivities for sure !!
v ‘’The Princess’’ stopped by and made an appearance !! First thing she said : ‘You need a haircut’ !! Hahahaha ,What a fun girl Jennifer is, she is now on my cover photo on face book, since I’ve lost touch of how to post pics on this Geezer Gazette, sorry Jenn !! Schedule me in for a cut and color please ? Maybe a mani-pedi ? HA !! NOT.
v Great to see so many folks Saturday throughout the day including some I don’t often see like Bonez and Shelby who made the trip out. Glad to also hear Sally, Jay, Buzzy, Zach and Ryan made an appearance Saturday night, their annual outing !! Karen and Wayne enjoyed the races after the earlier event at their place along with a few friends of theirs and thank you Jeff Ahlum for all the special announcements he made about our special day !!

6-4-16 QUICK RESULTS:
The #22 Arthur Smith Landscaping car was runnin good and handling better than ever Saturday night, we led a bunch of laps and garnered an adventurous 7th place finish in the 25 lap feature. Can’t thank Chuck Schutz and his fine group for the set up ideas that we continue to experiment with, they worked well. Congrats goes to Brain Shuey and the entire Sue and Scott Lee owned #177 team on their third feature win this season. Following closely behind Shuey were Schutz, Pfeil and Sipe. Geezer really appreciated the #177 owners stopping by after the race and stating how nice a run we had, a true class act move, thanks Lee’s!! Kyle Borer won his first ever TP Trailer’s Modified race as he led almost all 30 laps of the exciting feature. Ryan Lillick won in the Sportsman division, what a great win for that team.
Ø THANKS !! Crewing the Hollenshaed Auto Sales #22 for the night were Al Yusko, Bob Auch and Ken ‘’Big Red’’ Loux. A special thanks goes out to these guys ( and JD when he can assist) for all the hard work, long nights and dedication it takes to prepare one of these BRC Late Models for competition.
Ø Happy Birthdays to Jamie from Sunshine Café and our own Bob Auch !!
Ø A very special thanks to the #46 Scott Select team for lending us a carb until ours is done being rebuilt. The comradery we are seeing this season form certain teams , really proves that this is a great division with some truly good people involved. I coulda got past Dan on the last lap but didn’t want him to take his carb back if I passed him. LOL, not. Dan Green driving the #46 Anthony’s Pizza , Squire side Café car finished 6th and is currently second in Championship points!! Keep it up team Green team !
Ø Another hats off to Dave ‘’Crazy’’ Yost as he took time from his busy schedule to guide me and Bob through a new steering rack install just a day before the race!! Actually, he didn’t ‘guide’ us he ‘did’ the install, LOL… Crazy, works on the #72 BRC Late Model team with Wayne Pfeil as driver. That entire team has also been super helpful through the years with a carb loaner (last season), advice and help whenever needed and comedy from Crazy all too often. Another 72 crew member: Josh Hash’s welding expertise has been coming in handy numerous times already this season and his wonderful wife Shani is also always a great help. THANK YOU to the entire ‘’purple power’’ # 72 team !
Ø Special thanks to race fan, friend of the owners and all around nice guy Ken Hanley for a recent gesture to buy a new tire for the Giorgio’s pizza #22 car !! Ken had some friends kids with him Saturday night and they enjoyed watching the #22 Weso’s Italian Restaurant car out front and promises to return !! Thank you Ken !!
Ø Missie’s cupcakes were out of this world !! Thanks Missie (owner of Checkered Flag Bakery), and nice try sneaking them into our trailer !! Our surveillance cameras and motion sensors caught you red handed!! Look up Checkered Flag Bakery on face book, and like her page.
Ø Thanks Cathy Green, owner of the #46 BRC Late Model for a container full of peanut butter cheesecake bites !! That was my pre-race and post-race snack !! Delicious !!
Ø The KAM Fueled Racing car owners were happy with the progress and seeing their car up front is what they want more of… we will do our best !! Thank you for believing in us and we aim to keep the good runs coming. Visit www.kamfueledracing.com often to keep up with our first season/start up team.
Ø Congrats to Eric Renninger on losing 40 pounds since 9 moths ago when he was in a racing incident which took him out of the driver’s seat for a little while. Eric is the Webmaster – E whom can do a site for you, see his contact info on the nice site (above) he administers for us. Thank you Eric and good job losing weight, teach me how you do it?? HA !
Ø My friend Dan Lane went to Airport Speedway Saturday night with their #29j Micro Sprint driven by Dan Lane Jr. and almost caused a riot !! Lol, Dan drove a great race and was black flagged for a late race incident so after he spoke his mind to the officials, they were escorted out… they won’t be returning and no one was put in jail, a good day I’d say…LOL they are a great team and great people, Airport lost a good competitor, but it’s not their weekly track so all is good. Go get em Danny !! They run Linda’s Speedway Friday night’s and Lanco Saturdays normally.
Ø Eric Whitby, Scotty Deihl and Whippy were seen cruising the pits after the races but were too busy to stop by and say hello, but that’s OK, they will be at Cooper Morgan’s open house (see ad below) hosting some live interviews from the deck June 18th with team 22, come join us !! Joe Adams musta been so busy tryin to figure out who was driving the 22 car, that he couldn’t attend Saturday night… apparently since the #22 Keystone Air car was leading a bunch of laps he thought there was a driver change…and posted a ever too long face book post about it… I didn’t see the humor !! Hahahahaha ;)
Ø Princess was MIA, she must have been busy painting ? At least Jordan was kind enough to say hi to Geezer, sheesh…LOL.
Ø Great to see the Cooper Morgan’s Public House owners after the races enjoying meeting the many other folks who stop by after the events to see the #22 machine, and they even brought a couple cold beverages for the team !! They are really looking forward to meeting and hosting everyone for their open house ( see below) on the 18th. Seems that everyone expects Geezer to cook burgers on the grill, I better wear my fire suit and you better bring Tums or Pepto –Bismal.
