Weedsport, NY — October 2, 2008 – By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing NorthEast PR Director
Serving Central New York since 1961, Terrell’s Potato Chip Company Inc. has become synonymous with sponsorship support of the DIRTcar Racing NorthEast circuit. In the upcoming fall festival of speed, Terrell’s returns just as strong by posting $500 Pole and $250 Outside-Pole cash awards during the 37th running of Super DIRT Week at the New York State Fairgrounds. 2008 marks the fourth straight year that Pro Stock time trials will be run on the Syracuse Mile, having been held at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park in nearby Elbridge from 1997-2004.
Last October, Mr. DIRTcar Champion Pete Stefanski sped around the Moody Mile in a time of 36.852 sec., which was nearly one-second shy of the record tour mark of 35.898 sec. (100.284 mph) established by series points chaser Louie Jackson, who became the first Pro Stock pilot to surpass the 100 mph barrier in 2006. Pole-sitter Stefanski went on to finish third in the ’07 BNC Motorsports title event while Don Carlson earned the outside-pole starting position with a one-lap best clocking of 25.378 seconds and went on to capture the 25-lap main event.
Famous for its fresh potato chips, Terrell’s also provides dozens of other products for retail, wholesale and vending companies with those same items sold in many chain stores including Wegmans, Price Chopper, P&C Stores, Byrne Dairy, Eckerd, Great American, Grand Union and Tops. Terrell’s is also tied closely with the Dinosaur BBQ Restaurant chain in the development of new snack products, introducing the Terrell’s Dinosaur BBQ Potato Chip and more recently Terrell’s Dinosaur BBQ Mojito Tortilla Chip.
Pro Stock racer Jack Terrell remains in charge of the company today, spearheading service to customers with 24 route trucks, two tractor trailers and one box truck. Supplying wholesalers for over 40 Years, Terrell’s covers most of New York State and also sells in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
