Horton & Beavers Team for

December 16 FSHS Meeting

You’re invited to join us Tuesday, December 16 when the 1971 Flemington Speedway championship Modified team of owner Jim Horton and driver Sammy Beavers are featured as guest speakers. 

The team hit for twelve victories in their masterpiece 1971 season. How well-suited to each other were they? Twenty-two* Flemington Modified wins together, that’s how well. At Flemington, Beavers won more Dirt Modified features with Horton than any other car owner (22/49), and Horton won more with Beavers than he did with any other driver (22/31). *Note, there are three races won by Beavers for which we do not have a car number (07/02/66, 07/23/66, 7/20/1968). So, that twenty-two may be a bit higher, still.

The venue is the Flemington Elks Lodge 1928, at 165 Route 31 Flemington, NJ. Doors open at 6:30 and the meeting gets underway shortly after 7:00. You’re invited. Admission is free and the meeting is open to the public, we hope to see you there.
