Short Track Management To Operate Ace Speedway in 2015 with Exclusive Option to Purchase

December 24th, 2014

Winston-Salem, NC-Short Track Management, LLC, (STM) of Winston Salem, NC (owner of Stateline Speedway) has come to an agreement with Abraham Woidislawski, current owner of Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC, to operate the track in 2015 with an exclusive option to take ownership of the facility by year’s end. Mr. Woidislawski, of Philadelphia, PA, has
hired and leased the track to several promoters since his ownership began eight years ago.

Short Track Management, LLC will assume immediate operation of the 58-year-old four-tenths (4/10) of a mile asphalt oval with Opening Day slated for April 3, 2015.

“We have been considering the potential of running Ace Speedway since we heard this past summer that there may be an opportunity to lease or purchase the track. Much like Stateline and Eriez Speedways up north, Ace Speedway has a very rich racing history that is backed by thousands of passionate, loyal fans, hundreds of dedicated drivers, and a committed local business economy that has been supportive of the track since its inception,” stated STM CEO Bill Catania.

Ace Speedway is unique, in that it is a multi-use facility. A 12 degree banked 4/10 mile paved oval, 2/10 mile red clay oval, as well as a 100’ tractor pull and 100’ mud bog pull arena grace the property. Racing on the paved oval has occurred Friday nights since its founding in 1956 and will not change for 2015. The Ace Speedway Kart track will operate on Saturdays in coordination with other area kart tracks. Special Events will also be featured on the 2015 schedule to maximize the use of this fantastic facility.

STM was formed in April of 2014, and in less than one year the company has already had a significant impact on the landscape of motorsports in Western New York and Eastern Pennsylvania.

Under the leadership of company founder and CEO, Bill Catania, STM renovated and operated the historic Stateline Speedway near Busti, N.Y., along the New York-Pennsylvania border. STM invested over $750,000 with
renovations to the facility’s crumbling grandstands, grounds, track equipment and service buildings, as well as technical infrastructure update, including the addition of site-wide Wi-Fi.

When the track opened just a few short months later on July 5, one of the biggest crowds in the 58-year history of the 1/3-mile dirt speedplant poured in through the gates to find new permanent grandstands, renovated concession stands with new menus, a new p.a. system for both the fans and the pit area, excavated and landscaped walkways, a renovated control tower, V.I.P. suites and more.

When it was announced that Lancaster (N.Y.) Speedway would terminate its oval track program, STM

negotiated a short term lease to conduct one of the most prestigious of racing events in the northeast – the U.S. Open. In September, this event saw over 180 cars and 4000 fans over its three-day duration.

STM also has a purchase agreement in place for Eriez Speedway in Hammett, Pa., a 3/8 mile dirt oval, which will close on Dec. 31, 2014.

Earlier this week, In an effort to bolster its digital services capabilities, STM announced the acquisition of Nitroquest Media Group, a privately-held, motorsports-focused software and marketing services company based in Lincoln, Nebraska. They have developed a unique industry-leading digital content management platform that powers dozens of race team, race track, racing series web and mobile properties. This allows teams to integrate their social media components, such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as e-commerce into their website with no programming or technical knowledge required.

An Ace Speedway driver rules meeting will be held on January 10th at the Winston Tower located at 301 N. Main St. Winston-Salem, NC. The meeting will be held in the “Training Room” on the 24th floor. The schedule is as
follows:

10AM – Late Model Stock
11:30 AM – Limited Late Model
12:30 – Modified
1:30 – Street Stock
2:30 – Extreme
3:30 – Mini and Pure Stock

Andy Loden #29 MonroeRoadways Chevy Impala Event Preview: PASS South- Labor Day Classic 150, Ace Speedway

September 2nd, 2011

Stanley, NC- This Labor Day weekend will bring the PASS South series back to the Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, NC for the second time this season. Coming off a runner up finish just two weeks ago, Andy Loden couldn’t be happier about the stretch of tracks ahead to decide the series champion as he sits just twenty-two points from the top spot. With most competitors lack of enthusiasm well known about racing at the paper clip shaped speedway that produces ultra tight racing and a desire to be in the bottom groove throughout the 150 lap event; Loden feels this may be the weekend to capitalize on a his fellow racers as he names Ace Speedway as his favorite track on the circuit.

QUOTES:
A Look Back:
-This will be the second PASS South series event at the Ace Speedway this season after The Firecracker 150 was held back in July; how did it go for you in that race? “Well it was an up and down day really. I qualified fifth I believe which is a little bit of a disappointment but I thought we still had a good race car. We had a little bit of luck on our side at the redraw and started on the outside of the front row when the green flew. I jumped out to the lead pretty quickly for a few laps and then settled somewhere in to the top five to save my stuff for the end. Then somewhere around lap 100 I got together with Jimmy Weller sending us both for a spin and to the back of the pack. From there I played catch up and was able to drive back up through the field to a fifth place finish.”

Ace in the Hole: -Having won at the Ace Speedway in the PASS South series a season ago; tell us what does it take to win at the track known for tight racing? “Ace is a track that a lot of people don’t really care to much for. I’m the complete opposite, its one of my favorite tracks we race at all year. I think the reason guys don’t like racing there is because you really have to wheel the car their and at the same time stay off the guys your racing around because it’s not a very wide track at all. I’ve always felt track position is one of the key elements in winning at Ace, if you can stay out front and pick your way through traffic yourself then you have a better shot than trying to follow someone from behind.”

Crunch Time: -With just three races remaining in the chase for the 2011 PASS South series championship you sit third in the standings just twenty-two points out of first; do you feel that this weekend’s race at Ace is crucial to have a shot at being the series champion?

“I don’t know if this weekend’s race in particular is the do or die race for the season, but it is important to have a good run and not lose points. Both the guys in front of me in the standings finished first and second last time we were here so they are going to be tough to beat for sure. I don’t expect a super large car count at Ace, it just never happens, so our plan for the weekend is to leave Ace without losing points to anyone. If we gain points, well that’s just a bonus.”

Andy Loden Gets Back to Top Five Form at Ace Speedway

July 6th, 2011

Stanley, NC – After hitting a snag at Orange County Speedway finishing outside the top ten for the first time in his last five races, Andy Loden got back to his top five form fans of the PASS South series are accustom to seeing with a fifth place finish in the Firecracker 150 at Ace Speedway. The fifth place finish made it four top fives thus far this season for Loden who currently sits fourth in the series championship standings just thirty-eight points out of the top spot.

“It’s nice to be back in the top five where we belong,” stated Loden after the race. “I think we had a little bit better car than where we finished. I think we could have finished third but who knows. Every time you are a defending winner somewhere and go back there and don’t win you feel a bit let down, or at least I do. In the end we probably gained a position in the points standings which was good, we’ll just have to go to Gresham and see what we can do there.”

Loden would post the fifth fastest time during qualifying before redrawing the outside pole position after the series mandatory redraw of the top ten fastest qualifiers. Once the 150 lap got going Andy settled in to the third position as the laps clicked away. The first two-thirds of the race was ran at a torrid pace with the leader of the race lapping cars inside the top ten before the caution waived for the first time of the night.

The restart brought side-by-side racing, something not seen much on the night, and with that close knit racing brought trouble for Loden as contact with fellow competitor would send the #29 Monroe Roadways Chevy Impala in to a spin and to the rear of the field. Frustrated but not deterred Loden bounced back with several terrific moves to move in to the fourth position on the white flag lap. Last lap contact by series regular Justin Wakefield from behind sent Andy up the track and out of position and back a position to fifth as the checkered flag was displayed.

Next up for the Monroe Roadways race team will be Racing Radios 100 at the beautiful Gresham Motorsports Park located in Jefferson, Georgia on Saturday July 16th. The event will mark the first time the team along with driver Andy Loden will have competed at the ultra fast half mile track.
