Last summer Lake County Speedway lost Frank Lett after a long battle with lung cancer. Lette devoted his life to short track racing and spent many Saturdays at the former Painesville Speedway. To honor his passion for the sport, we established the tradition of running an annual street stock race in his honor.
The 2012 Frank Lett Memorial 150 will be accompanied by a 75 lap modified and 50 lap compact feature in addition to the 150 lap street stock feature. All three races will have top payouts for the divisions in the state, with $1800 going to the winner of the street stock division.
This race is a not an easy assignment; maintaining your tires for that many laps is a feat in and of itself. If asked, the 2011 Memorial 150 champion, Earl Goldy, would probably agree that keeping an eye on the rest of the field, patience and persistence are what helped him get to victory lane.
An exciting race-filled day is upon us! Below is all the information, for both drivers and fans, to come take part in the action:
