Some Quincy Raceways drivers have an opportunity to join select company with a track championship this season.
The most notable is Terry Gallaher, who figures to be in the hunt for the late model championship. A title would be Gallaher’s fifth, and only three men have won more than four championships.
Gallaher’s last title came in 1991, but he is in the midst of a career renaissance, having finished third in points in 2007.
Tony Dunker and Steven DeLonjay in the modifieds, Lonnie Bailey and Bill Genenbacher in late models and Steve Carlin in hobby stocks have all won two track titles. Only seven drivers in the 34-year history of the .29-mile facility have won three or more.
Modified drivers Michael Long and Robbie Reed are gunning for a second championship. Just 19 drivers have two or more titles to their credit.
