Back in Action!


The 2023 racing season resumes this Saturday (Sept. 9) after a long mid-summer break. The return to action showcases a 50-lap feature event for the 604 Late Models plus a full slate of competitive racing in V-8 Warrior, Outlaw 4, Gladiator and Florida Old Time Modified divisions.

Pit gates open at 4:30 with the grandstands opening at 5 p.m. Hot laps will begin at 6 p.m. with opening ceremonies underway at 6:30.

The racing at the Clay by the Bay offers a family-friendly bargain as kids 12 and under are free with a paying adult. Standard adult admission is $17, Seniors (age 55 & up) and military with proper i.d. are $15 and teens (13-17) get in for $10.

The 2023 schedule has two additional nights of racing in September (16th & 30th) with three nights in October (No racing October 28). The November schedule features racing through the first three weekends with a special monster truck show happening on Nov. 24-26 (details to be announced). The final two weeks of racing happen in December 2 & 9 including an early arrival of Santa Claus on the final night of competition.

An addition to the schedule sees the Florida Dirt Legends Series added on Nov. 18. Top Gun Sprints will make appearances in October, November and December.

Jean Lynch

Jean Lynch, 88, of Washington Township, Apollo, PA died unexpectedly June 20, 2023 in Juniper Village, Monroeville, PA. Born February 8, 1935 in Markle, PA, she was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Vandergrift. Jean was fiercely dedicated to two things: family and dirt track racing. Taking her grandsons to various baseball games, practices, and training camps was a real joy for her. You could always find her sitting in a lawn chair, cheering on her grandsons and scoring the game (the umpire double checking the count with her), then hosting a family cookout on her side porch, with sweet tea, and as always, a dessert. She cherished family vacations to Jupiter Beach, Florida, making cinnamon pies and stocking the refrigerator with apricot juice.

Auto racing has been a passion of hers since she married Ed Lynch Sr., who became an accomplished race car driver, also known as the original “Apollo Rocket”. Jean found a niche for herself in auto racing, which grew into a career for her as a general manager/promoter, board member, racing official, publicist and scorer for various tracks and racing associations such as: NASCAR, Championship Auto Racing (CART); ten years at Indianapolis Motor Speedways’ Indy 500; Al Gerbers’ Race of Champions for modified stock cars; All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) and coordinator of the Ohio Sprint Speedweek; NY D.I.R.T. Modifieds and East Bay Raceway’s Winter Nationals

Jean was a general manager/promoter at racetracks in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Florida; rented facilities and promoted races at 9 different tracks. She was truly a pioneer, legend, and a great ambassador to the sport, not only in Western PA, but nationally.

While the June 17 event was considered a complete show before rain cancelled three of the scheduled features, a schedule change has been made to give the three classes a make-up date.

1 – 604 Late Models – An additional date has been added to the schedule on Sept. 30 as a makeup for the June 17 event. On that night, it will be features only for Late Models, using the lineup from June 17. Any additional cars will be added to the back of the field.

The previously scheduled Sept. 9 event is not impacted by the June 17 and will be a separate event.

2 – V-8 Warriors and Gladiators will have double features on Sept. 30, using the lineups from June 17.

3 – DRIVERS ONLY from the three affected divisions may use their wristbands from June 17 at any event up to and including September 30.
