CARNESVILLE, Ga. – Movieland Speedpark in Chandler, Ind., will be FASTRAK weekly sanctioned for the pro late model division in 2019.
The track, which is being operated by Reno Fontana, will open with a test and tune on April 12, with the first racing night slated for April 19.
“I was born and raised in the Chandler area,” said Fontana, “I won my first bracket race at the dragstrip when I was 16 years old and my first victory at the dirt oval came in 1970 at the age of 17. So when the chance to buy the Chandler track presented itself, I jumped, and here I am today as the new owner.”
Fontana, now residing in Southern California, has plans to turn Movieland Speedpark into one of the finest community centers in the Tri-State area, with plans that span beyond motorsports.
The FASTRAK Pro Late Models will run on Friday nights at the three-eighths-mile oval in 2019. Teams will have the opportunity to race for the $5,000 to win FASTRAK VP Racing Fuels National Weekly Championship. Drivers who become FASTRAK members and compete in a minimum of 10 races will be eligible for the FASTRAK World Challenge at Beckley Motorsports Park on Oct. 5-6.
The newly formatted FASTRAK World Championship will pay $2,000 to win on Friday and $5,000 to win on Saturday along with a $5,000 to win points fund for the top 10 drivers through the two nights. Additionally, drivers at Movieland Speedpark will compete for a FASTRAK Divisional Championship, which has $1,000 in point money per track within the division.
“Building this class in the tri-state area is our main focus,” said FASTRAK Executive Vice President D.J. Irvine. “FASTRAK offers a host of benefits to the drivers and great championship point funds to compete for. I’m truly excited about Movieland Speedpark joining the FASTRAK family.”
“We are excited to be partnering with FASTRAK and bringing late model racing, on a weekly basis, to the area,” continued Fontana, “We believe FASTRAK is the perfect fit for us.”
