TURKEY DERBY AT WALL STADIUM SET FOR
THANKSGIVING WEEKEND; NOVEMBER 27 AND NOVEMBER 28
Wall Stadium will continue a Thanksgiving stock car racing tradition that
stretches back 35 years on November 27 and 28 when speedway promoter Jim
Morton presents “Turkey Derby XXXVI” at his third mile paved high banked
oval speedway. As has been the case since the outset, Turkey Derby
competition is always held during the daylight hours and is presented on
Friday and Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.
Friday, November 27, will be a busy first day of Turkey Derby with
practice being offered for all eight divisions that will see competition on
the weekend. Late Model stock cars will headline Friday’s racing activities
as they compete in a 75-lap feature event. The INEX Legend Cars and the
Calabreeze Pools Sportsman racers will each compete in a 25-lapper and the
Flanagan Retail Development Factory Stocks will wrap up main event action on
Turkey Derby Day 1 in a 20-lap feature. Friday will also feature qualifying
for all four divisions plus qualifying for the Street Stocks and the Red
Bank Sleep Shoppe Modifieds.
Saturday, November 28, will feature double Modified stock car
action with 100-lap main events for both the tour type Modified stock cars
and the Red Bank Sleep Shoppe Modified stock cars. In addition, the Street
Stocks will compete in a 25-lap main event while the A.T.Q.M.R.A. Three
Quarter Midgets will wrap up their season and crown a 2009 driving champion
in a 20-lap feature race. In addition to the main event action and practice
for all divisions, both the tour type Modifieds and the T.Q. Midgets will
compete in qualifying events on Saturday.
