Weldon Sterner Memorial Success for Cappetta on All Fronts

Abbottstown, PA – April 25, 2024

After over a year of planning by Ashley Cappetta, Pat Sterner, presenting sponsor Chuck Reinert from Chuck’s Auto Parts Solutions and the team at Lincoln Speedway, the 20th annual Weldon Sterner Memorial finally came to fruition on Saturday night.

The pill draw monkey on Cappetta’s back finally took a night off when Chuck Reinert pulled the number 1 pill at pill draw, putting Ashley on the pole of her heat, “To have Chuck draw the 1 was impressive. It’s crazy to start on the pole, I haven’t started on the pole of a heat race in a long time.”

Before the heat race though, Cappetta hit the track for hot laps, “I didn’t get a good reading in hot laps after I got stuck behind someone that had never been there before. Even once I got around them, I didn’t get a good feel for the car, but I knew we’d have to change the set up anyway as the track was going to change quite a bit with time trials and the 410 heats running first.”

The initial start of the heat race saw a caution when a car spun, “I felt that Chad had a better start the first time and the restart definitely helped me since I got a better start the second time around.” Ashley was leading the heat race when the yellow came out again. On the restart, veteran driver, Frankie Herr was lined up in second. Cappetta held the lead on the restart with Herr not far behind, “I ran my heart out, yeah it was only a heat race, but it makes a difference.” Cappetta and Herr battled hard for the lead, with Herr taking the win, “I was happy with second. It put us in the redraw for the feature.”

Cappetta lined up eighth for the start of the 20-lap feature and felt progressively better as the race went on, “It was hard to pass, but after the caution I felt better.” One of the benefits of streaming is that the drivers can go back and watch their races, “When I watched the replay I saw I made a couple of mistakes and could have done a few things better.”

Overall Ashley was happy with how the night went on the track, “I feel like we’re making progress. The things we learned at the end of last season are helping us now. To make the show with 41 cars was an accomplishment in itself and to finish seventh was a blessing.”

Weldon Sterner Memorial Promotion

In addition to the great night on the track, Cappetta played an integral role in the promotion of the event, including the off-track activities on Saturday night, “It was nice to see everything come together and and everyone working together.”

The night started out with the Fan Zone, which gave the fans an hour to go into the pits and meet their favorite drivers, “I’m very happy with the Fan Zone and the great support we received from both the drivers and the fans.”

One of the things that made both the Fan Zone and the entire night a hit was the turnout of race teams. In total 73 cars showed up to support the 20th Weldon Sterner Memorial, 32 410 sprints and 41 358 sprints, “The 358 turnout was great and the field of 410 sprints was strong.”

“Having people, and unexpected people at that, come up to say I did a good job made me feel really good.” Ashley would like to potentially get involved in the promotion of more events in the future, “People have no idea all of the work that goes into promoting a race. There’s a lot that goes into putting something together this big.”

Cappetta, Pat Sterner and the team at Lincoln are already looking forward to the 21st Weldon Sterner Memorial on September 28.

Cappetta Puts Together Solid Night to Start the Season

Abbottstown, PA – March 20, 2024

Ashely Cappetta started off her 2024 season at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night. Cappetta and the team put together a solid night at the track, but the night almost didn’t happen. Racing on Saturday was a game-time decision as Cappetta had fallen ill Friday night and still wasn’t feeling well on Saturday morning. Ashley ultimately decided to give it a go at 3:30 PM, “I was willing to take the risk and race, especially considering it was the first race of the year and I have a lot of new sponsor support. I would have felt worse if I hadn’t put in the effort to try and race.” Cappetta did a self-assessment after hot laps and felt good enough to continue and finish out the night. 

Things picked up right where they left off to start the night with pill draw, “Honestly I wasn’t that upset with the pill draw. The combination of not feeling well and it being the first race of the year, starting in the rear for the heat race wasn’t a bad way to start the night.” Cappetta put on a clinic in the heat race, driving from seventh to third, putting her in the redraw for the feature line-up, “The car was really going and the late caution helped.” The impressive heat race run was a positive start to the season, “I’m happy with the heat race, especially considering I wasn’t feeling well. It definitely gave us something to work off of.”

Cappetta lined up ninth for the first feature start of the season, “I made a mistake early and then other people were having issues and it put me in a situation where I chose not to destroy a car in the first race of the season.” Ashley finished the 20-lap feature in 12th place, “Overall, I’m more frustrated than upset with the feature results, as soon as I got a rhythm going the caution would come out.” 

Moving forward Cappetta plans to have her merchandise van set up in turn 4 for fans to stop by and buy ACR gear and swag. 

GREAT LINE-UP OF RETURNING SPONSORS FOR THE 2024 SEASON

In addition to the list of new sponsors released for the season, Ashley Cappetta Racing has a great line-up of returning sponsors who have agreed to support Cappetta and the team again in 2024. These partners include but are not limited to Gettysburg Trading Post, Yesteryear Antique Center of Hanover, Stoner’s Auction, Iron Horse Trains, Republican Club of Hanover, Racing Through Time Antiques & Collectibles, and Schaeffer’s Oil/Doug Smith.

Chris’s Coins Antiques and Collectibles Joins Growing List of New Sponsors

Cappetta continues to increase her sponsorship support with the addition of Chris’s Coins for the 2024 season.

Mike’s Towing & Recovery Back With Ashley Cappetta for the 2024 Campaign

For the sixth consecutive season, Mike’s Towing & Recovery will team up with Ashley Cappetta Racing. Mike and Chrissy came on board in 2019, just in time for Ashley’s first career win. What initially started as sponsoring the soda at Cappetta’s “Night at the Races” fundraiser, has evolved into a partnership that continues to grow, “This year they decided to take a step forward and grow the sponsorship.”

Not only are Mike and Chrissy sponsors, they are always there for Cappetta when she needs them, “They came out for a leak in my truck while I was pumping gas at a Sam’s Club. They were able to fix but were also ready to tow my truck if needed. They also leant me their truck to pull the trailer for Trunk of Treat two years ago since my personal truck was in the garage.”

In addition to their towing and recovery business, Mike’s now offers roll-off dumpster service. Check them out online at MikesTowingAndRecoveryPA.com.

“A Night at the Races” Fundraiser Continues to Grow

Ashley Cappetta Racing’s annual fundraiser, “A Night at the Races” is this Saturday and it just keeps getting better and better. Cappetta just announced that Jersey Mike’s Subs – Hanover Location (141 Wilson Ave., Hanover; Gateway Hanover Shopping Center) is giving away 250 coupons to fundraiser attendees. The coupon is good for free drink and a bag of chips with the purchase of a sub. They also donated a Family 4 Pack to giveaway at the event which includes four subs, four drinks and four bags of chips.

Tickets are still available for the event and the racing from Florida will be shown on the TVs in the fire hall.

Cappetta Revs Up for 2024 Season with Gettysburg Trading Post Returning as Primary Sponsor; ACR Fundraiser Slated for February 10

East Berlin, PA – January 30, 2024

Ashley Cappetta Racing is pleased to announce that the Gettysburg Trading Post has signed on as the team’s main sponsor for the 2024 racing season. This will be the 13th season that the Gettysburg Trading Post has teamed up with ACR, their partnership started in 2012 during Ashley’s first year competing.

The Gettysburg Trading Post moved into ACR’s main sponsor spot for the 2021 season which means they have priority for any community events that ACR attends and prominent branding on the trailer, the car, and Ashley’s fire suits. “It’s really nice to have someone that believes in me through the good and the bad. There’s been a lot of good but also a lot of bad, but for someone to stick by me through the ugly – I don’t think I’d be where I am without Shawn and the Trading Post,” Cappetta shared.

Cappetta has enjoyed seeing the Gettysburg Trading Post grow and expand alongside of ACR and said, “Shawn and the Trading Post started small and progressed to the main sponsor, which I am truly forever grateful for. As their sponsorship has grown, so has their business. It’s been nice to see them move into a larger facility and build a good business.”

 

12th Annual “A night at the Races” Fundraising Event Set for February 10

In addition to gearing up for the on-track action in 2024, Cappetta is also putting the final pieces in place for her 12th annual “A Night at the Races” fundraising event on Saturday, February 10. Tickets are available in advance and at the door (unless sold out prior to the event) for $30. Doors open at 5PM at the Irishtown Fire Company (934 Irishtown Rd., New Oxford, PA). Every fan in attendance will receive a shirt, a reusable grocery bag and a can coozie. The event includes a silent auction, raffles, a live auction, and much more.

Some of the items to be auctioned off in the live auction are a race used and autographed Freddie Rahmer helmet, James McFadden #83 autographed wing panel, Steve Wilbur race used helmet, Cory Haas #11c wing panel, Don Kreitz Jr wing panel, nose wing from the #69K autographed by Lance Dewease, Davey Brown and Don Kreitz Jr and a James McFadden KKR #9 autographed wing panel.

Another aspect of the event that allows fans to take home extra cash is the “Racers Challenge.” Fans compete via the World of Outlaws video game with $350 going to first place, $200 for second, $100 for third, $75 for fourth, and $50 for fifth. There is a payoff for non-qualifiers as well. The “Racers Challenge” is sponsored by Livingston Lawn Care, Snelbecker Electric, Racing Through Time Racing Collectibles, and ACR.

In addition to the raffle baskets, there will be a large raffle with multiple top prizes including a Mossberg 500 Retrograde Field 12 gauge shotgun, 36-inch blackstone grill, a bushel of crabs from RIPS, and Michael Kors purse plus 6 other prizes.

Ashley Cappetta Racing merchandise will be available for purchase at the event. 2023 merchandise will be discounted and it will be fans’ first opportunity to buy 2024 merchandise.

The fundraiser will also be the official kick-off of the 20th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial. The $ 20,000-to-win race was originally scheduled for the 2023 racing season, but Mother Nature forced it to be moved to Saturday, April 20, 2024.

Cappetta and Team Continue to Learn

Looking to Finish the Season Strong

Abbottstown, PA – September 7, 2023

by Emily Winslow / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Ashley and the Cappetta Racing Team had a decent night at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday which allowed them to continue to add to their extensive notebook on the new tires.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  September 2, 2023

  • Event:  Kick-Off to the Classic
  • Track:  Lincoln Speedway
  • City, State:   Abbottstown, PA
  • Quick Stats:  24 cars, Heat 7th [5], A-main 14th [20]

 

FRUSTRATING HEAT RACE TO START THE NIGHT

Ashley Cappetta and the Gettysburg Trading Post, Mike’s Towing and Recovery, Yesteryear Antique Center, Stoner’s Auction, O’Brien’s Fuel and Service, Iron Horse Trains, Republican Club of Hanover No. 89 were back in action at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday for the Kick-off to the Classic.  

Cappetta’s pill draw lined her up fifth for her heat race. And what a heat race it was. Contact was made as Cappetta and her competitors raced hard for position. Ashley lost momentum in the fight for position and the track changed halfway through the 10 lap heat, “The last half of the heat race, we didn’t have the car set up for the conditions and the car started to fade.” With 24 cars on hand everyone qualified for the feature so Cappetta would have a chance to turn the night around in the feature after a frustrating heat race.

“I got a good start in the feature and passed two cars in the first lap,” but then the caution came out. “I think if we would have stayed green, I would have done better, I had good momentum. After the caution I couldn’t get rolling like I was before the yellow.” The team did change the set up from the week prior and the car felt more drivable, “I was still getting a little bit of wheel spin off of turn 4.” With the week off the team will look into combatting the wheel spin issue.

CAPPETTA AND TEAM LOOK TO CLOSE OUT THE SEASON STRONG

With two races left on the season Cappetta and the team would love a win but right now they are focused on finding a set up that makes Ashley feel the most comfortable so they can come out of the gate strong to kick-off next season, “A top five or a win would be great, but right now comfort is my number one priority.” Cappetta has had conversations with many other teams and the new tire has evolved throughout the year, “We would like to not fight the tires all year again next year.”

The first race on tap is the Montieth Classic, “Montieth was a favorite of mine and I miss seeing him race.” And then the Weldon Sterner Memorial will close out the season, “As much as this race means to me, for me to end up in victory lane with Pat, that would mean a lot to share that moment again.”

Stay tuned to Cappetta’s social media accounts, as well as Addicted2DirtPR.com/Events for the most up to date schedule information.
