In just a few years, the Motor Mountain Masters has become one of the most cherished and anticipated events at Jennerstown Speedway.

With a storied history that dates all the way back to the 1920s, Jennerstown track operator Bill Hribar and his staff sought to create an event that honored all the traditions and individuals that have made the facility one of the most prestigious in the Northeast, which led to the inception of the Motor Mountain Masters in 2018.

Not only does the winner of the Motor Mountain Masters receive a $10,000 paycheck, but they also have the privilege of adorning a crimson jacket that is a tribute to the green jacket worn by the champions of The Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club.

The drivers determined to take home a crimson jacket in this year’s Motor Mountain Masters consist of the local track heroes along with a healthy group of outsiders, all of whom are looking to add to the growing history of the event.

Motor Mountain Masters entry list

The current entry list for the Motor Mountain Masters features 26 cars.

Headlining this group is Super Late Model standout and part-time NASCAR Xfinity Series competitor Derek Griffith. Nobody could touch Griffith in last year’s Motor Mountain Masters, as he led 139 of the 150 laps to claim the crimson jacket for himself.

Griffith will have plenty of strong competition to deal with to defend his win on Saturday evening. One of the heavy-hitters standing in Griffith’s way is current Jennerstown points leader Barry Awtey, a six-time track champion who won the inaugural Motor Mountain Masters in 2018.

Other notable names on the entry list include 2014 ACT Late Model Tour champion Joey Polewarczyk Jr., former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Cale Gale and Eddie MacDonald, who has tallied seven victories in what is now the ARCA Menards Series East.

Motor Mountain Masters history, winners

Each edition of the Motor Mountain Masters has been won by a different driver.

Along with Awtey and Griffith, Todd Stone and Mike Hopkins have both had the privilege of celebrating in Victory Lane at the end of the Motor Mountain Masters, with all four competitors hailing from the Northeast.

Stone is the only past winner not entered in this year’s event, which puts Awtey, Hopkins and Griffith in an ideal but challenging position to become the first repeat champion of the Motor Mountain Masters in the event’s fifth year.

The crimson jacket has a strong chance of staying in the Northeast with 70 percent of the entry list hailing from the region, but the battle for the prestigious trophy is expected to be intense through all 150 laps on Saturday evening.

Below is the complete list of winners in the Motor Mountain Masters.

Year Winner
2018 Barry Awtey
2019 Todd Stone
2020 Mike Hopkins
2021 Derek Griffith
