Dog Hollow Speedway in Strongstown, Pennsylvania- a facility primarily associated with late model racing – hosted the 410 sprint car class for the first time in their young history. Although the facility is only in it’s teens as far as age is concerned, it was a veteran who came out on top- taking the lead from Clinton County recent winner, Bob Howard, and never looking back. Rod George, a Kittanning, Pennsylvania resident and Fully Injected member, picked up his 2nd win in just as many nights; capturing the 30 lapper worth $2500 at Dog Hollow Speedway. There were 18 cars in attendance for the first annual event. The facility plans on having the 410’s back next season for a similar program.

Fully Injected teammate, Scott Priester, continued with his recent Mercer Raceway Park success last night by finishing third in the sprint car main event. This was his second consecutive top 10 performance of the weekend. Fully Injected youngsters, Adam Kekich and Brandon Matus, also added success to the FI weekend by both bringing home top 10 performances at MRP; Kekich was 9th while “The Wheelman” Matus was 10th.

Tyler Walker, the kid from Los Angeles, California, won the historical Kings Royal last night at the Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. The young man ran second to three time World of Outlaws Champion,Sammy Swindell, for many laps in the $50,000 to win, 40 lap main event; all before disaster struck for the Germantown, Tennessee native. Swindell would cut a tire with just a few hundred yards to race- leaving Tyler Walker with the victory, and Swindell with a runner-up finish. Walker, a California native who now races full-time in Pennsylvania with the Pennsylvania Posse aboard the Keen Transport, Peterbilt Trucks number 17, continues to show the entire world that he still belongs in a sprint car. This win will certainly add some luster to the already impressive Walker resume.

Joey Zambotti adds a new flavor to the Fully Injected team!

Joey Zambotti

Since the start of Fully Injected last December, the main focus of the company was to promote open wheel racing by means of selling merchandise to promote the sport, and offer a full interactive site that keeps up with drivers, teams, and supporters of fully injected and everything open wheel  related. As time has progressed, it seems obvious that other versions of motorsports should be accepted, and new borders should be drown to further expand the Fully Injected horizon. With that, I am pleased to announce that Joey Zambotti of Kittanning, Pennsylvania will now be a part of that mission; but doing it on two wheels.

At the age of 24, Zambotti is no average ‘Joe’ on a motorcycle. With 21 years of experience under his belt and countless hours of traveling, competing, and preparing/maintaining his equipment; Joey has evolved from being a young rookie with a dream, to being a professional in the sport of motocross. In 2009, Zambotti turned ‘Pro’, which was probably the biggest accomplishment of his career thus far.

As far as plans for the remainder of the 2011 sesason, Zambotti plans on competing at  Unadilla and the Steel City Pro Nationals; and not to mention, compete with the Pennsylvania State Championship Series.

Fully Injected is happy to have Zambotti hop on board and help endorse the FI mission and newly created line of gear. He will bring not only a new flavor to the website; allowing for a different taste of media and perspective, but also a whole new audience for Fully Injected and Fully Injected.com.

Keep up with him all summer long here at www.fullyinjected.com

and as always; RACE OPEN WHEEL!
