Central PA Racing Scene Best of 2014

Well folks its that time of the season. For the past 2 weeks I had you the fans vote on who you all thought where the best of the 2014 racing season. Today I'm going to share with you my picks for the best of 2014 in the 358, 360, 410 racing divisions as well as the best event and best race track in Central PA.

358 Rookie of the Year - Tyler Esh!!!
Tyler was hands down the tops of the 2014 358 rookies until he was hurt in a crash at Lincoln Speedway in July. Tyler had such a big lead in the Central PA 358 Point Series presented by Capitol Renegade Rookie of the Year Standings it took eventual winner Wyatt Hinkle till the last race of the season at Lincoln to beat him. When Tyler fully recovers and gets back behind the wheel of the 35 sprinter it shouldn't take him long to find victory lane in 2015.

410 Rookie of the Year - Austin Hogue


Austin Hogue was the tops of a banner crop of Rookies in 2014. Austin had 1 win at Lincoln Speedway but also scored a close 2nd place finish in the last race of the season. Add in a 2nd place finish at Williams Grove Speedway and just edged out the fans ROY Logan Wagner.

358 driver of the Year - Kevin Nouse
  
Kevin had his best season ever behind the wheel of the 4r machine. 10 wins spaced out over 3 race tracks...Lincoln, Williams Grove, Susquehanna Speedway's as well as becoming a two time track track champion at Williams Grove Speedway with his back to back Championships at the historic half mile.
 

360 Driver of the Year - Mark Smith
Mark was the first ever 360 track champion at Selinsgrove Speedway in 2014. Smith would find victory lane a total of 6 times in 2014 at the fastest half mile on the east coast.

410 driver of the Year - Stevie Smith
Stevie Smith bounced back in a huge way in 2015. Teaming with legendary driver Fred Rahmer Stevie would find victory lane 7 times this year while running a partial schedule. Stevie was on point when it counted winning 2 WOO races as well as the 1st ever Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway and almost winning the 2014 Williams Grove National Open before being taken out by the eventual winner. If Stevie would have run the entire season just imagine how many wins the 51s team might have racked up.

2014 Best Event - The Party at the Path , Path Valley Speedway Path Valley Speedweek June 29th
Standings room only crowds, packed pit area, and host Steve Prost from the MRN Radio Show Winged Nation help make the 1st ever Party at the Path the best event in 2014. Fred Rahmer knew what would draw the fans to the little bullring and that was a quality field. How did he get the quality field? By paying big money just about every time a tire hit the race track. The event was a home run for fans as well as the drivers. Heres to many more races like this for years to come.

2014 Central PA BEST TRACK-Port Royal Speedway


No track in Central PA has done a major 180 in the fans eyes as well as the competitors like Port Royal Speedway has the past few years. This year the Fairgrounds Half Mile played host to the ASCoC as well as the World of Outlaws for the first time in years. The track also hosted the biggest crowed I have ever stood in to watch a race when they hosted the 5 feature event on June 14th which was free for all the fans to come and enjoy. The new grandstands offer a great view on the half mile as does the infield which was made better by many of the improvements to the track over the winter. The addition of the new start up lane was a great addition for the race teams and helps keep the show moving along nicely. The thing though that puts the track above every other track in Central PA? The food!!!! If you have never taken in the Tuscarora 50 during Fair week you need to make plans n going next year. The food is hands down, bar non the best in the area. Everything you could ever want to eat and then some is there to help put a strain on your belt loops.

With that I want to say Congratulations to all the drivers who I selected this season as well as the drivers who where voted on by the fans in each category. This season was a great year to take in the races no matter which race track you go to and I for one hope to make it back to as many if not more different tracks in 2015.

Let me know what you all think of my selections for the best of 2014. Hit me up on here by leaving your name and a comment in the comment section, hit me up on twitter at @BillMcIntyreIII or even send me an email at boogermac420@inbox.com

Until then we still have 1 race left in 2014, so I will see all of you at Susquehanna Speedway in 2 weeks.
