The Villages, FL – The new year has dawned, and teams are anxiously awaiting the start of the 2023 racing season in Northern Ohio. While most tracks have begun the process of revealing their event schedules, Norton, Ohio’s Barberton Speedway sits silent while local racing for the upcoming season remains in question.
Current ownership stake of the speedway is undecided on the future of Barberton, but the Stray Dog Racing team out of Akron, Ohio is leading the charge to help save their 2023 racing season till they can return home to Barberton. SDR Team Leadership members, Tari Impellizzeri, Jason Deal, & Jerry Ward have organized a team fundraising event at their Café Headquarters in Akron on January 21, 2023. SDR Leadership have pulled out all the stops by bringing in extra help for the big day, leading to a 24-Hour “Internet Telethon”.
“We are truly excited and grateful to everyone who has become involved with this benefit. Stray Dog Racing is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds, so having the ability to let our “dogs” roam free and race this season is essential. Barberton is our home, and we hope to return soon,” said Tari Impellizzeri.
NASCAR Craftsman Truck & ARCA Menards Series driver Kyle Lockrow has joined in the festivities for the event at the Stray Dog HQ’s venue to help save SDR’s race season. In conjunction with the Stray Dog event, Kyle agreed to drive in the iRacing Rolex 24-Hour event once again at Daytona International Speedway for Kip Mitchell’s Generic Team Name organization for a second consecutive year during that same weekend to help raise the necessary funds for SDR to compete at surrounding speedways.
There will be a variety of ways fellow racers, enthusiasts, and dedicated race fans can contribute to the cause. Details for the event can be found on SDR’s Facebook page and tickets can be purchased at the event link site. Information regarding Kyle’s stint times and streaming availability to follow in the coming weeks.
