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.


Gettysburg Trading Post offers a wide variety of ever-changing inventory of pre-owned, as well as, new merchandise from firearms of all types as well as accessories, to jewelry, gold & silver, tools, electronics, video games & systems, DVD’s and much more!
