The McGee Memorial honoring the founders of Path Valley will 
take place on Saturday, September 3rd. The McGee family started
construction of Path Valley in 1986 with its completion in 1987.
The doors of Path Valley opened for its first race in June of 1987
and has thrived to this day. Roy & Margaret along with their
children; Judy, Gary, and Ray operated the speedway until the 
year 2000. Although gone from ownership the McGee children 
can still be found at the speedway with Gary in the pits helping
drivers, and Judy writing our weekly write ups. A McGee Era
Legacy book was released last year by daughter, Judy which can 
be purchased at the speedway. 

The McGee Memorial is always an exciting event as we invited 
any McGee era drivers back to the speedway that evening for 
an on track reunion at intermission and group photo. There will
also be driver introductions and brief interviews from our 
former heros. 

Increased payouts and contingencies will be announced closer
to the time of the race. If you or your business would like to 
help sponsor the McGee Memorial please see Judy or Dr. Crouse at the speedway in the tower. 
Make up features for the Austin Gelwicks Memorial will be as follows:

Sat. August 27th - Mason Dixon 270s
Sat. September 3rd - Limited Late Models
Sat. September 10th - 600cc Micros

By Judy McGee Timmons 

Dr. Zachary Crouse’s “Night of Power” was exactly that- as Rick Eckert clocked 
a lap time at 83.84 mph in 10.788 seconds on the Path Valley Speedway 
quarter mile oval “bullring” which gave Eckert a front row seat in the feature 
event; Beside Jason Covert; the only competitor to out run Eckert in the 
time trials, rounding the oval in 10.619 seconds giving him a speed of 84.81mph. 
The introduction of the ULMS 22 car field put the fans on their feet when they 
rounded the oval in a three abreast form with fireworks by T.A Ward 
construction lighting up the backstretch skyline; as the roar of 22 engines 
prepared to see green. Eckert pulled to the lead on the wave of green 
but a “one lap logged” caution for Jake Moser who did a 180 in turn 3+4; 
reset the playing field with Eckert, Covert, Greg Satterlee, 
Jared Miley and Devin Hart Relining for the top five.  

Eckert Held his lead as he maneuvered his racecar into the turns with sideway thrusts; positioning his racecar for the stroll down the front stretch and backstretch with Covert in a competitive spot; logging the best lap speed at 74.863 mph in 12.022 seconds while sharing the raceway with 20 other competitors.

The high powered late models filled the track with Eckert meeting the rear of the field at the half way mark, as they ran non-stop dodging and passing traffic. Eight laps of the 30 lap feature were complete when Alyssa Rowe got out of shape in turn 4, resulting in being towed to the pits. The reline tightened the top runner’s positions; giving Satterlee an advantage to pass Covert, taking the second place position and Matt Cosner claiming fourth as Jared Miley finished out in the top five. Jason Covert, Rick Eckert, and Gregg Satterlee were the heat winners.
