VP Race Fuels Ghosts, Goblins, and Gearheads wrap up

10-15-2014

What a great weekend of racing and Halloween fun at the VP Race Fuels Ghosts, Goblins, and Gearheads event! The racing all weekend long was incredibly tight, the costumes and trailers decorations were wonderfully creative, and folks came in from NY, WV, OH, and from all over PA at least! The PRP track crew worked hard all weekend long to keep things in shape and the program moving along. Thank you to all who came out and participated! We hope you had a great time! Results from the weekend's races are on the link: http://www.pittsburghracewaypark.com/race_results.php

A huge thank you to our Ghosts, Goblins & Gearheads Race sponsors. Their support for the weekend was invaluable, allowing us to give out the great prizes, pay the purse, give the Happy Gilmore checks, award Iron Man trophies, and give away a 5 day, 4 night trip to Las Vegas! Please support those who support us!

Congratulations to Team PRP!

09-21-2014

Pittsburgh Raceway Park is glad to have played host to the teams from Beaver Springs Dragway, Elegant Builders Raceway Park, Empire Dragway, Kanawha Valley Motorsports Park, Quaker City Motorsports Park, Skyview Drags, and Thompson Raceway Park this past weekend. There was a fantastic display of cars and competition, but more than that, the camaraderie between racers rose above all, as friends old and new made great memories.

For the 6th time in the last 8 years, and the third straight, Team PRP won the IHRA Division 3 North Stars bracket finals. Elegant Builders Raceway made a charge with 51.5 points, but finished second,  7.5 points behind. It was an all PRP final in the Street class, with Joe Tharp Jr getting his second Iron Man at the bracket finals, getting the win over cousin Chris Tharp. On Friday, in the Summit SuperSeries runoffs, Brandon Butler (junior dragster) and Mark Brewer (Box) punched their tickets to Memphis next month. In Thursday's gamblers races, Matt Powell won Bike, and Tom Scott won Box. Friday's gamblers races, Joe Tharp Jr started his winning streak by taking down No Box, Tyler Pennington got the win in junior dragsters, and Bob Brehm runnered up in Box, losing by .000x. After Saturday's main event, Josh Rietscha won the Box gamblers, and AJ Casper won the No Box gamblers. Thank you to all who attended this weekend, both from PRP and those who traveled in. We hope you had a great time, and will be able to visit us again. Full details of the weekend are on the link from IHRA:

It doesn't seem that long ago that Mia Tedesco was starting in her junior dragster:

 photo miajunior_zpsc39838d4.jpg

She moved on to Mike's Auto Body Top class just a few years ago, and for the last couple of years has been traveling to IHRA and NHRA national and divisional events, and big money bracket races, with great success. This season, she has been driving the A/Fuel Top Alcohol dragster for Hirata Motorsports in select NHRA events. Today she scored her first Wally in Top Alcohol at the NHRA Division 3 Lucas Oil Drag Series event. Congratulations Mia!
