Kutztown, Pa. – The philosophy is simple, yet effective…create an affordable, spec racecar then provide a healthy purse for events that feature those cars. That combination will lure top name drivers (especially if you can pick a night when virtually no other tracks are competing against you), and those big names will entice the fans to come out and watch, week after week. Throw in a nicely renovated facility with the necessary amenities and a racy surface so the competitors can do what they do best, and you’ve got a formula for success.
And it’s exactly the formula that was utilized by co-promoters Rich Tobias and Doug Rose in 2013; their first season at the helm of the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA in Kutztown, Pa. It is an understatement to say that the inaugural campaign was a rousing success, as names such as Brightbill, Pauch, Eckert, (more…)
At The Banquet: Brightbill, Jay Hartman, Buccafusca, & Perchak Crowned Action Track USA Champions
Kutztown, PA – The first track champions of the renovated facility known as the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA, located on the Kutztown Fairgrounds, were officially crowned last Saturday night during an awards banquet held inside Building 24 at The Works in Wyomissing, Pa.
Kenny Brightbill (Sunoco USAC SpeedSTR), Jay Hartman (Pioneer Pole Building Wingless 600cc Micro-Sprints), Danny Buccafusca (NAPA Auto Parts All Star Slingshots), and Ross Perchak (270cc Micro-Sprints) were honored as the first point champions under the Action Track USA banner and co-promoters Rich Tobias and Doug Rose.

Kutztown, PA – There’s simply no denying it…during the summer of ’13, a noticeable buzz enveloped the grandstand each time a certain car made its way onto the clay playground known as the JeffreyHogueRealtor.com Action Track USA at the Kutztown Fairgrounds.
A youthful charger from Catasauqua, Pa, captured the admiration of the throng that filled the spacious aluminum bleachers week after week, as they pointed and cheered each time he planted the right-rear of his Bogar lookalike No. 99 on the cushion and authored yet another patented high-side, high speed journey to the head of the wingless 600cc Micro-Sprint pack.
Kyle Lick, a graduate of the Slingshot division who was coming off a wingless 600cc track championship at the Hamlin Speedway, quickly became a fan favorite at the renovated and reconfigured Berks County oval. His style, along with the throw-back paint scheme that paid tribute to the late, great Jan Opperman, excited the crowd as much as any of the other 100 or so competitors who made the trip to Kutztown each Wednesday.
