From Kelly Brown – All Star Public Relations Director
– Three tough tracks, three nights of electrifying action — This is the
challenge the O’Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions will be facing this
weekend as they race three nights in a row against the Pennsylvania Posse.
On Friday night April 30, the All Stars will be invading Williams Grove,
before moving on to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, May 1, and Big Diamond
Raceway for their inaugural event on Sunday, May 2.
Williams Grove Speedway
On Friday night, the drivers of the All Star Series are ready to take on
one of the most legendary tracks in all 410 Sprint Car racing. When ever
the All Stars make a pilgrimage to The Grove it is sure to be showdown
between The PA Posse and All Star regulars.
This weekend will mark the first time this season that a series will be
invading the Grove. Last year the victories went to the posse at Williams
Grove as Cody Darrah and Todd Shaffer celebrated in Victory Lane. The Posse
has a strong hold at the track when it comes to All Star events. What All
Star can rise to the occasion and make it to Victory Lane? Will Dale
Blaney, Tim Shaffer, Greg Wilson or one of the other All Stars be able to
spoil the Posse’s dominance at The Grove?
On Friday qualifying is slated to begin at 7:30 pm. Adult tickets are $20
with tickets for 13-20 year olds running $10 and those 12 and under are
free. To purchase tickets or get more info, please call the speedway office
at 717-697-5000 or visit www.williamsgrove.com.
The second night of the three night Posse and All Star showdown, will be at
Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania. A traditional stop on the
All Star Schedule, the All Stars will be looking to get an edge over the
Posse after last season.
Last year in during the first stop for the All Stars at Lincoln Speedway,
history was made as Fred Rahmer recorded his 500th career win. When the All
Star drivers returned for a second bout with the Posse, Brian Montieth
edged Darrah in his bid for victory. With $5,000 on the line, it promises
to be another classic at Lincoln.
On Saturday qualifying will begin at 7:00 pm. Adult tickets are $20 with
tickets for 12-17 year olds running $12, those 11-6 are $2, and ages 6 and
under are free. Pit passes for the event will run $25. To get more info,
please call the speedway office at 717-624-2755 or visit
Big Diamond Raceway
On Sunday night, the All Stars will be setting their tires on the dirt at
Big Diamond Raceway in Minersville, Pennsylvania for the first time. With
410 winged sprint car racing having a limited history at the track, the All
Stars and PA Posse should be on even ground for their third round of battle
this weekend. The last time a 410 winged race was held at the track was in
2007 and Lucas Wolfe won.
Gates open at 3:00PM on Sunday May 2. Hot laps are slated for 5:30PM, and
qualifying begins at 6:00PM. Adult general admission is $25, and kids (ages
6-12) are $5. Those 6 and under are free. Admission to the pit area is $30.
