ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - (January 11, 2012) - Jeff Heotzler, winner of Atlantic City’s 2005 Gamblers Classic Indoor Race at Boardwalk Hall, is the latest TQ (Three quarter) Midget driver to enter the annual event. The 10th edition of the event under the direction of Len Sammons and staff is planned for Friday and Saturday nights Feb. 3-4, 2012.

Heotzler, of Wallkill, N.Y., was the winner of a memorable race that was decided in Heotzler’s favor on the final lap,

The lightning-fast TQ (three quarter) Midgets join three other classes of race cars: the out-of-control dirt 600cc Micro-Sprints, the aggressively-driven Slingshots and the missile-like Champ Karts.

Heotzler’s entry confirms eight of the nine previous Gamblers Classic are planning to compete.
Joey Payne (2004, 2007); Lou Cicconi Jr. (2006, 2010); and Ted Christopher (2009, 2011) are two time winners; each is seeking a third Gamblers Classic victory in this year’s race.

Heotzler has not raced at Boardwalk Hall in three years; his car was demolished in a 2009 accident at Providence, R.I. but has been repaired for this event.

The driver roster for the four competition classes stands at 73 TQ teams, 54 Champ kart teams, 31 dirt 600cc Micro Sprint cars and drivers, and 27 Slingshots.

That number is expected to grow steadily with two weeks remaining prior to race time. Upward of 200 teams are expected to be vying for starting berths in the four feature races. TQ Midget entries are wide ranging, having been received from eight states one Canadian province. Vintage TQ midgets have been added to the weekend of events. Cars will be displayed on Friday, Feb. 3 throughout Boardwalk’s Hall spectator concourse.

A warm-up session is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, Feb. 4. Cars will then be displayed and drivers will be available for autographs and photos during the interactive evening Fanfest session prior to the beginning of racing program. Drivers will hand out full-size souvenir pennants to the first five hundred youngsters during Fanfest as well.

Racers wishing to enter any of the divisions competing in Atlantic City may still do so and can find entry and rule information available at aarn.com.

Tickets for the Atlantic City event are on sale now at Ticketmaster outlets online at www.ticketmaster.com and at the Boardwalk Hall box office. Ticket prices remain the same as the past event. Premium seats sell out quickly.

Early entries include Ryan Tidman, Ted Christopher, Billy Pauch Sr., Steve Craig, Frank Fischer, BJ MacDonald and Jonathan Reid are among those who have joined Paul Lotier Jr., who was the first entrant for the March event.

Racers wishing to join in the TQ Midget action at Dunkin Donuts Center may find entry and rule information available at aarn.com.

Dimension Design (DD), Brodheadsville, Pa., has enhanced both the Atlantic City and Providence races with a cash bonus program for all cars running Dimension Design component parts and sporting DD decals.

The plan is as follows: overall fast qualifier (if a DD eligible car) $100; Gamblers Classic top three finishing DD cars (any position) $100, $75, $50.

The top three Dimension Design finishers in the Providence Indoor race will also receive like bonuses and if a DD eligible car wins both the Atlantic City Gamblers Classic and Providence Coffee Cup that team will earn an additional $250.

Youth Hockey Clinic


WILLIE O’REE AND ART DORRINGTON TO HOST YOUTH HOCKEY CLINIC AT BOARDWALK HALL IN CELEBRATION OF 2012 AHL ALL-STAR CLASSIC

 

Dorrington to be Honored with Dedication of “Art Dorrington Ice Rink” at Boardwalk Hall

 

Public Invited to Attend

 

Atlantic City, NJ – Prominent NHL alumnus Willie O’Ree and former Eastern Hockey League Atlantic City Seagull Art Dorrington will host a youth hockey clinic at Boardwalk Hall on Tuesday, January 24 at 4 p.m. Both O’Ree and Dorrington hold important places in NHL history and will be in Atlantic City in support of the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic which will take place on Sunday, January 29 and Monday, January 30 at Boardwalk Hall. This event is free of charge and will be open to the public. 

 

The clinic, comprised of students from the Atlantic City based Art Dorrington Ice Hockey Foundation, will focus on hockey technique while highlighting the importance of positive ethics such as teamwork, sportsmanship and commitment. O’Ree and Dorrington are strong advocates of minority education and have invested time into introducing the game of hockey to disadvantaged youth while teaching them life lessons along the way.

 

Prior to the start of the clinic, in recognition and appreciation to Dorrington’s allegiance to the community and hockey career, Boardwalk Hall will rename the building’s ice rink in his honor. The dedication of the “Art Dorrington Ice Rink” at Boardwalk Hall, which includes a proclamation from Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford, will also be part of the day’s festivities.

 

Art Dorrington was the first African American hockey player to sign a NHL contract when he joined the New York Ranger’s organization in the 1950’s. Due to a leg injury, Dorrington was unable to play in the professional league, but is remembered locally as a member of the Eastern Hockey League’s Atlantic City Seagulls championship team from 1951. An Atlantic City resident since 1950, Dorrington has been very active in his not-for-profit organization, The Art Dorrington Ice Hockey Foundation. Founded in 1997, the organization was created as a means to assist the underprivileged youth in Atlantic City by teaching them life skills through the game of

hockey.

 

Willie O’Ree is recognized as the first black hockey player to play in the NHL as a member of the Boston Bruins in 1958. O’Ree is currently the National Hockey League’s Director of Youth Development and hockey ambassador for the Hockey is for Everyone initiative. Similar to Dorrington’s mission, as Director of Youth Development, O’Ree has helped launch more than thirty local grassroots hockey programs around North America with the purpose of educating disadvantaged youth in the values of hockey and life. To date more than 45,000 children have participated in O’Ree’s programs.
