Rochester Mills, PA – Gregg Satterlee of Rochester Mills, PA will be the first to admit that the 2013 season did not get off to the start that he and his team would have liked. Starting off at the Georgia/Florida Speedweeks in February, Gregg entered eleven events while only capturing two top-ten finishes. In fact, the trip was so miserable that the team loaded up and made their way back home a day early.
As the schedule has picked up, so has Satterlee’s performance as he picked up his first and second wins of the 2013 season with a weekend sweep in the state of Virginia. First it was the Three State Flyers series event at the Eastside Speedway in Waynesboro, VA on Friday, May 3 where Gregg held off multi-time Three State Flyers champion Jason Covert for the $5,000 win.
On Saturday, May 4 Satterlee trekked to Winchester (VA) Speedway for the annual Lee Stultz Memorial that paid $3,000 to the winner. Gregg shared the front row with pole-sitter Jamie Lathroum and shot out to the lead on the opening lap. Satterlee was the class of the field on this night and would lead all 35 laps for his second victory in as many nights. “I have to thank my crew chief Robby Allen for this one.” Satterlee stated in his post-race interview. “It always helps to start up-front in these races but Robby had this car just about perfect and I want to thank him for giving me such a good car tonight. I’m just happy to win and hope we can keep this going.”
Gregg and his Satterlee Petroleum Distributors, East American Motorsports, Integra Shocks, JNJ Motorsports Media sponsored #22 Rocket Chassis will take the May 10th weekend off but will be back in action at the County Line Speedway in Elm City, NC and Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, VA for a pair of Ultimate Late Model Series events on Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18. Satterlee will then hit the road for 15 races in 17 days starting at the NDRL’s McKean County Raceway on Thursday, May 23 for a $3,000 to-win NDRL’s ULMS event. From there the team will travel with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series to Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, OH on Friday, May 24 for the postponed ‘Buckeye 50′ that pays $10,000 to-win and Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, WV for a $6,000 to win event on Saturday, May 25 and a $15,000 to-win event on Sunday, May 26. Gregg will then head to Bedford (PA) Speedway on Monday, May 27 for a $3,000 to-win Three State Flyers event before taking two days off to regroup for a another $10,000 to-win World of Outlaws Late Model Series event at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, DE on Thursday, May 30. After that the team plans to follow the Appalachian Mountain Speedweek as they visit Potomac Speedway in Budds Creek, MD, Hagerstown (MD) Speedway, Winchester (VA) Speedway, Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, PA, Port Royal (PA) Speedway, and Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA from Friday, May 31 through Wednesday, June 5. With no rest for the weary, Gregg will head straight out to Rossburg, OH for the annual Dream 100 at Eldora Speedway on Thursday, June 6 through Saturday, June 8.
This year’s edition of the Dream features two $6,000 to-win events on Thursday and Friday with the huge $100,000 to-win finale on Saturday, June 8.
