Riverhead Raceway officials announced today the twice postponed 2021 championship awards presentation will take place Sunday afternoon April 3rd at The All-Star of Riverhead. Track owners Connie Partridge and Tom Gatz will present nine track champions with the traditional championship rings and plaques. The top five from the nine classes will also receive plaques, with seven Rookie of the Year drivers to be named.
The 2021 championship awards originally were to be presented prior to the Islip 300 last November, however when severe weather pushed the 300 to Sunday afternoon track management made the decision to postpone the championship awards. Track management then moved the championship awards presentation to January but an uptick in the omnicron variant of Covid-19 affected some staff members forcing another postponement.
The 2021 Riverhead Raceway parade of champions will be led by Buzz Chew Chevrolet NASCAR Modified champion Kyle Soper who captured his third championship in four years with car owners Wayne & Joette Anderson. In addition to the championship plaque, point fund check and ring, Soper and team will be presented with the prestigious Eddie Partrdige NASCAR Modified Championship Drivers Cup.
Joining Soper during the parade of champions for 2021 are Jeremy McDermott, Late Models, Richie Davidowitz, Crate Modifieds, Scott Pedersen, Figure Eights, Cody Triola, Blunderbusts, Jack Handley Jr., Super Pro Trucks, George Tomko Jr., Legend Race Cars, Brian Brown, Street Stocks and Paul Wojcik, Mini Stocks. Additionally, the top five in all nine divisions will be presented their 2021-point fund checks and plaques.
The All Star of Riverhead is located at 96 Main Road (Route 25) in Riverhead, NY 11901, just west of the Route 105 intersection. The awards ceremony will take place in the restaurant/pub area of The All-Star Sunday April 3rd starting at 1:00 pm. There is no admission fee for the event but capacity is limited to 250.
