Dirt Sportsman Modified Racing A To Z With Sam Wescott and Joe Toth Part Of Busy Saturday Free Seminar Line-Up At PPB Motorsports 2023
Oaks, PA — Noted dirt Sportsman and Modified crew chief Sam Wescott and his championship winning driver Joe Toth will be offering valuable advice to fellow racers as part of a Saturday Free Seminar schedule at the Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports Race Car & Trade Show. The one hour seminar is scheduled from 5 to 6 PM in Room 1 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.
After retiring as a driver, Wescott became a valuable crew chief. After working full-time on cars driven by Brandon Grosso, Wescott switched his focus to his step-son Joe Toth.
This past season Toth showed great consistency winning an amazing five different Sportsman championships! Together they won two track titles at New Egypt and one each at Georgetown and Delaware International plus the Short Track Super Series South crown.
Wescott has offered his time to cover what he feels is needed for a new race team that’s moving up get started. For all Modified or Sportsman racers, he’ll go over his weekly maintenance check-list, touch on motor maintenance, valve springs and oil; and spend time on chassis set-up, shocks and springs.
Toth will also be available to answer questions on following an ever-changing track surface and what tire prep is needed to be successful and save money. Drivers making the move from small cars, or current Sportsman or Modified drivers wanting to up their game need to attend with questions in hand for a crew chief and driver known for helping their fellow competitors!
A new larger Seminar Room 1 located near the front entrance will be utilized this year in addition to a second location. A complete list of seminars and times are listed below.
