Modified Standout Anthony Perrego Joins SpeedSTR Ranks at Action Track USA; Season Opener Sunday, May 13jaydugan
Montgomery, NY’s Anthony Perrego is planning a SpeedSTR assault this season.
Perrego started out in the All Star Slingshot class before rapidly moving up to Sportsman, then small and big block Modifieds. He registered his first two Modified triumphs of the year on the weekend of April 21 & 22, and he’s ready to strap back into a SpeedSTR when the new campaign begins on May 13.
Perrego has competed in the class before; he was an occasional competitor at Action Track USA a few years ago and was always fast and near the front in his sporadic visits to Kutztown. Wayne Subaru, the sponsor when Billy Pauch Jr. captured his two SpeedSTR point crowns at Action Track USA, returns to back Perrego’s effort in 2018.
The USAC All Pro SpeedSTRs, Hyper Racing 600’s, and All Star Slingshots will fill out the menu when the Goldie & Elton Meitzler Memorial raises the curtain on season six of the Rich Tobias/ Doug Rose regime at Championship Energy Action Track USA on Sunday, May 13. The Meitzler Memorial will be capped off with a 30-lap main for the SpeedSTRs, a 25-lap romp for the 600’s, and a 20-lapper for the All Star Slingshots.
Pit gates open at 3 p.m., and the grandstand gates swing open at 4:00. Warm-ups begin at 5 p.m. with qualifying events getting underway immediately following the hot lap sessions.
