30th Dec 2013


East Smethport, PA (December 30, 2013) The National Dirt Racing League is proud to announce the 2014 schedule for NDRL's McKean County Raceway in East Smethport, PA.  A predominant Saturday night schedule of events is planned for the upcoming season, that will see weekly action for the NDRL super late models, RUSH sanctioned crate late models, modifeds (Emods), stock cars, pure stocks and mini stocks.   
"I am very excited in what we have in store for the 2014", stated McKean County Raceway general manager, Chris Zuver. "We kick our season off a week earlier than ever before with a practice night on Friday, April 18 followed by a full racing program the next night."  "We have special events spread throughout the season which will conclude with the all-new Fall Classic being moved to Columbus weekend in October." 
John Kennedy, owner of the National Dirt Racing League, stated the following, "This is our second season and I think our schedule has something for everyone. We are having a Full Pull Production, sanctioned Tractor Pull on Saturday, July 5 along with celebrating the life of Medal of Honor recipient, USMC Corporal Jason Dunham Memorial for the NDRL Northeast Late Model Series on 4th of July.    The NDRL 'Kings of Dirt' National touring series makes its first appearance to MCR on July 31 through August 2nd for the Connor Bobik Memorial weekend that will see one driver possibly winning $20,000, plus sprint cars, 358 modifieds, the return of the Stephanie Eckl Memorial and concluding our season with the 9th annual Fall Classic in part of the Jim Butler Memorial weekend and this event will also be a NDRL national touring series event that will see racers from South Carolina, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Iowa and elsewhere on hand for this event."
The NDRL is working on its first year of a new five year lease with the McKean County Fair Board, with close to 30 dates being on 2014 schedule.  New clay has been located and the new surface will be put into place in early spring.  The 2013 McKean County Raceway awards banquet will be on Saturday, March 1 at the Eldred Township Fire Hall in Eldred, PA, full banquet details will be announced in the very near future.
