Piersig and Weldon finish 1st and 2nd 8-25-2006

Every team fielding multiple cars dreams of that "one - two finish" in a Feature Race. When we talk to children about living a "Drug Free Lifestyle" we tell them that their "Dreams Can Become Reality", there is no better way to prove it!

Friday 8-25-2006 our team's "Dream Became Reality" as Mike Piersig (#77), and Andrew Weldon (# 76A) battled to a First and Second place finish at Bridgeport Speedway in the Sprint Division.

The night started with Weldon earning his division leading 4th heat race victory with a very dominate performance. During the Feature race Piersig and Weldon took advantage of opportunities to position them selves in first and second place before the last caution of the race at lap 18. Piersig was not to be denied the feature win with a good jump on the re-start, Weldon fended off a challenge from Palmucci to hold on to second place.

Piersig posted his second victory of 2006 and regained the points lead with 4 more races left in the season. "We are in it to the end" was Piersig's comment in the winner's circle, Weldon remains solidly in 5th for points gaining more points to move closer to the championship. "We have 4 races left with the last being for double points, I feel we still have a great shot at a championship if we can stay on top of our game" said Weldon after the race.

Shaffer Motorsports is grateful for the support of our sponsors, Boeing Helicopter Credit Union, Comcast Cable, Vanderbrakk Plumbing, Spatz Fiberglass, SignScape Custom Signs,, Heritage Moving Systems, Best Western of Concordville, Mike Piersig Plowing, and Penn Del Auto Parts. We would not exist without our sponsors, and we hope we can continue to make them proud of their support of Shaffer Motorsports.

Mike Piersig wins Sprint Opener at Bridgeport Speedway

Some people know how to make a grand exit, and know how to make grand entrance. Mike Piersig knows how to do both by winning the last scheduled race of 2005 and the season opener of 2006 at Bridgeport Speedway!

Mike's patience, and acute driving skills keeping him near the front of the field throughout the feature allowed him to take advantage the mistakes made by a few drivers to capture the lead and the win in GRAND style.

A six year veteran driving Sprint Cars, Mike is show everyone that he is a force to be reckoned with on the track by winning his Heat and Feature races on opening day. Mike is currently racing for 2.50 a lap in the Racing For Children, "Pennies A lap" program to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware raising 50.00 for the families of seriously ill or injured children. Every week more people are pledging "Pennies A Lap" so we should see the total grow during the course of the 2006 season at Bridgeport Speedway. Anyone wishing to pledge with Mike or Andrew to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware can go to and download a pledge form and mail it to:
Shaffer Motorsports
101 West Ruddy Duck Circle
Oxford, Pa 19363
Or bring the form to Bridgeport Speedway and drop it off at Tom & Sandy Racing Video's booth.

"He drove a perfect race, he knows he has a great car, his crew lead by Ron Lamond are focused and committed to providing Mike with the best support"
" It's wonderful to see Mike do so well, he is such a hard worker, the ultimate team player, Tom and I are very proud of Mike and our Team" said Sandy Shaffer.

The second team car driven by Andrew Weldon also had a great night, starting 16th in a field of 22 cars, Andrew battled forward to finish 8th providing Shaffer Motorsports with two cars in the top ten for the Feature Race.

"What can I say about Andrew, he doesn't know how to give up. It's extremely hard to move up when you start that far back but he always finds a way. He's a great driver with a keen ability to look ahead and take advantage of opportunities to advance". " We had a problem with a coolant leak, some of the water was misting back on his helmet so he was out of tearoffs pretty quick and was resorting to wiping his face shield off constantly throughout the race"." With that as a distraction, plus worrying about over heating and watching the temperature gauge he was still able to advance through the field". Tom Shaffer

Tom & Sandy Shaffer at the Urban Youth Racing School Awards Banquet

Sandy and I were invited to attend the Urban Youth Racing School annual awards banquet on 3-22-05 as special guests of the founder Anthony Martin. Bryan Vickers (Nextel Cup) and Rick Crawford (Craftsman Truck), supporters of UYRS for many years were on hand to sign autographs, and present awards to the children. The Urban Youth Racing School ( was founded 7 years ago by Tony Martin for inner city youth to “enhance their life skills by using Motorsports as the magnet and education as the compass” (ref UYRS web site). They also train the students to race the “Mini Cup Cars” competing in many races around the country.
Sandy and I participated in one of the many “Celebrity Shoot Outs” with the UYRS, it a wonderful program for inner city youth with the children being focused on achieving positive goals through education, and learning about the many opportunities Motorsports has to offer. Other Nextel Drivers such as Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jeff Gordon have also support UYRS events and programs in the past.
Tonight we witnessed one hundred very proud and talented recent graduates receive their well-earned awards, and scholarships. We were very impressed with the organization of the whole event; it was first class all the way! You can read more about the UYRS banquet and more about some local dirt tracks in tomorrows Philadelphia Inquire article written by Pete Schnatz. Pete as you probably know has been very kind to local “Grass Roots” racing teams and tracks providing many articles highlighting local teams and tracks. Be sure to support Pete’s efforts like he has been supporting the local racing scene by getting a copy of Wednesdays Inquire.
