Competiton and rivalry are essential elements of racing; driver against driver on the track, crew against crew in the pits and fans out-yelling fans in the stands. Friday night, November 10, at the Jerseytown Community Center the only rivalry was in the telling of exaggerated stories of driver and team exploits as Gerry and Cindy Creveling, promoters for over 20 years at the The Greenwood Valley Action Track hosted the traditional year ending soir'e.
Along with the wonderful food and numerous prizes, trophies were distributed to the top finishers in each racing division. Several special awards highlighted the close camaraderie of the racing community. An honorary EMT award was given to Eddy Miller, Sunbury, for his help during collisions on the race track and Hoss Uhrin's grandfather received a dancing doll to commemorate his accidental dive into the stream behind The Action Track.
Trophies went to the top three points leaders in each division and each division's Champion received an Action Track jacket. Winners include: Extra Heavy Karts, Eddie Miller, Sunbury; Heavy Karts, John Evancho, Freeland; Medium Karts, Chris Hoffman, Lewisburg; Light Karts, Jason Koch, Lewisburg; Adult Caged, John "Hoss" Uhrin, Freeland; Junior Caged, Adam Zimmerman, Middleburg; Rookie Caged, Brett Gordner, Orangeville. The Championship for Micro Sprint 250cc went to Jeff Furlong who nipped Neil Petock, Bloomsburg. Participants posed for pictures, taken by track photographer, Art Yerger, sporting their new jackets, and giant trophies.
The annual banquet offered thanks to the drivers, crews and families for making the 2000 Season a success. The next Greenwood Valley Action Track event will be "Bug Night", to be held on the last Saturday in March, 2001.
