GSQMRC Holds Annual Turkey Derby

The Garden State Quarter Midget Racing Club held its Annual Turkey Derby this past weekend at Lil' Wall Stadium.

The Garden State Quarter Midget Racing Club held its annual Turkey Derby weekend after a two-week delay. Friday night found some of the drivers practicing after the layoff as well as the families enjoying an early Thanksgiving dinner provided by the track caterer, DRJ Catering.

Saturday morning dawned with a bright sun and clear blue skies. Racing started at 9:30 after the handlers/drivers meeting at 9. After the heats and most of the B-mains were run, the club invited the retiring drivers to participate in the Retiring Drivers parade - a highlight to the club's Turkey Derby every year.  This year's retiring drivers were Gary Weisgerber, Ryan Gerber, Brandon Traino, Trevor Schwarz and Jack Ely.

Next up on the agenda were the A-mains.  Winners included:  Justin Grosso, Brandon Shipley, Jacob Descoteau, Joey Bailey, Shawna Winters and Brandon Grosso.  Kiel Cochran would steal the show with three wins in Senior Honda, Light 160 and Light World Formula with Jack Ely taking one last victory lap in his Heavy 160 A-main.

Racing resumes next March with the opening Annual Garden State Classic weekend.  Watch the club website, www.gardenstateqmrc.com , for details.
