York Springs, PA, The annual Gary Wolford Fish Fry and Silver Spring Speedway Reunion will occur this Sunday, May 1, at the Latimore Valley fairground. The fairground is located two miles east of York Springs, Pennsylvania on Latimore Valley Road. Former local racing star Gary Wolford began the Fish Fry at his garage in Brogue, PA. The event grew in size and Wolford moved it to the present fairground location.
The Fish Fry is a fund-raising event for the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing. Gary Wolford donates all the proceeds from the day to the museum. The festivities will commence at 9 a.m. There will be various restored racing machines in the infield area.
Gary Wolford’s dedicated crew will prepare fried fish and fries for those in attendance. There is no charge for the food but Wolford asks everyone to make a donation.
The highlight of the day is the blindfold race. Referred to as the “Second Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” the race will feature four cars with each being piloted by a blindfolded driver.
The first car will contain Super Sportsman drivers Carmen Perigo Jr. and Steve Wilbur. Representing the Modified division will be MeMe DeSantis and Ryan Watt. Dana Montieh , Gloria Wilbur, and Tena Shaffer will occupy the third machine. The final entry will feature Susquehanna Speedway owner Scott Gobrecht and his speedway manager Kolten Gouse.
All will compete in junkyard cars prepared and donated by J and K Salvage. The race will go green at 1 p.m.
There will be other activities taking place including rides for the fans around the Latimore Valley oval. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing will be open.
The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing continues to be a showplace for the wide variety of machinery in the world of motorsports. The museum encompasses various forms of racing equipment. EMMR is also a leading motorsports research facility and contains the Chris Economaki collection.
