Indoor Auto Racing Series 2025 Dates Confirmed For Allentown, PA, Atlantic City and Trenton, NJ

Trenton, NJ – The 2024 Indoor Auto Racing season is just one month in the rear view mirror, but plans for the 2025 are already underway, with dates confirmed for events in Allentown, PA, Atlantic City, NJ and Trenton, NJ.

Each venue from the 2024 schedule will return in 2025 with events on their traditional weekends.   The concrete series will start inside Allentown’s PPL Center for a ninth year on January 3 and 4. 

The Len Sammons Production series will then visit Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall for a 23rd time on January 31 and February 1. This season will conclude in Trenton, NJ’s CURE Insurance Arena on February 21 and 22 for the 6th East Coast Dirt Nationals.

“The action and racing on the Indoor Series this season was truly amazing” stated series promoter Len Sammons.  “Starting in Allentown with a TQ Midget feature for the ages featuring multiple lead changes and ending in Trenton with drivers using every inch of the clay racing surface the 2024 season may have been our best yet!”

Capping off a busy month of January, will be the Len Sammons promoted 39th annual Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2025 show, January 24 and 25 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

Serving as the traditional start of the northeast racing season,  the PPL Center in Allentown, PA will again host the Indoor Auto Racing Series opener. The Ironton Global Allentown Indoor Races will feature a three division show with main events for the TQ Midgets both days. They’ll be joined in competition by the Slingshots and Champ Karts.

Young Tanner VanDoren of Schnecksville, PA made his introduction to the Indoor Series in a big way with a surprise victory in Friday night’s Allentown opener in 2024.  Series veteran Ryan Flores of Huntersville, N.C.  returned to victory lane on Saturday for his record sixth victory inside the PPL Center.

The concrete series then heads to Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ for the 23rd running of the NAPA Auto Parts Atlantic City Race Weekend.    The BlackJack 21 for TQ Midgets which debuted with strong fan and racer support in 2024, will return as the main event on Friday night.   On Saturday night the TQ Midgets stars will compete in the historic Gambler’s Classic, plus the Slingshots and Champ Karts will run their main events.

Playing his cards perfectly, Flores raced to the inaugural BlackJack 21 victory on Friday night.   On Saturday night, Flores was less than 100ft from a weekend sweep before contact with VanDoren sent him spinning off turn four and VanDoren to the Cool Down Zone.  

The benefactor was Andy Jankowiak of Tonawanda, N.Y. who inherited the lead and held off all challengers in a green white checkered finish to score his record tying fourth Gambler’s Classic trophy.

The only “dirt” event on the schedule will wrap up the season, at  the CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ for the BELFOR East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals on February 21 and 22.   This event features the wingless 600 Sprints on the highly acclaimed bank dirt oval.

Dirt Modified standout Anthony Perrego of Montgomery, N.Y. raced to the fifth BELFOR Property Restoratiion East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals crown thanks to a late race charge. Perrego, utilized the low line to his advantage while Briggs Danner, Steven Snyder and others exchanged slide jobs on the cushion racing for the lead around the outside of the track the majority of the race.
