The Jennerstown Speedway Complex in Jennerstown, Pennsylvania will have a new ownership group when the season begins in May.

Richard Pologruto, John Morocco and Larry Hemminger have taken command of the speedway. All three men were part of the original group of six that revitalized the speedway during the past four years.

During that time, the number of competitors has consistently grown, and the attendance has exceeded more than 100,000 fans each of the last two seasons, according to the track.

New to the schedule of events this year is the addition of the All Star Monster Truck Tour, that will feature the iconic BIGFOOT, on July 27.

Although the Motor Mountain Masters is not new, it will have a slightly new agenda, with the addition of the Farmers Union Co-Op charger division. Masters weekend will offer the highest prize money of the year for the Charger drivers. The Stoystown Auto Wrecker Modifieds will also be in action again, along with Martellas Family of Pharmacies Late Models division.

Enhancing the Masters is the addition of the Hard Charger Award, which honors the driver who advances the most positions during the 150-lap event, along with a cash bonus to the winners of the first segment and second segment. More bonuses will be announced ahead of the August 9–10 event.

In addition, the new ownership group has also established a point fund for the weekly divisions at the track. The track will offer more than $22,000 in year-end point fund money that will be divided among the top-10 drivers in the five weekly divisions.

“This is an important aspect that has been missing from our racing program until 2019,” Jennerstown Speedway Complex General Manager Billy Hribar said. “The drivers are dedicated to Jennerstown Speedway week after week, and these cash bonuses are our way of saying thank you for the unwavering commitment of our competitors.”
