racecars at a recent practice session, the upcoming edition of the Turkey

of the event. Turkey Derby is a two-day stock car racing spectacular set for
Friday November 25 and Saturday November 26 during the daylight hours.

Hossfeld of Ransomville, N.Y., Shaun Carrig of Little Falls, Steven Reed of
Howell, Dave Sapienza of Riverhead, N.Y., Howell’s Ken Woolley, Jr. and
Pennsylvania veteran John Markovic.
The Touring Modified portion of Turkey Derby will feature a 150-lap main
event with caution flag laps counting during the first 100 circuits.
The Late Model stock car field for Turkey Derby XXXVIII is also filling up
fast. Among the entries already received are Seekonk Speedway ace Craig
