Sarver, PA (April 17, 2014) The lights are out, the field is set and flagman Todd Beichner has the green flag at hand ready to let it fly on the 2014 Fab Four Racing season at the Action Track this Friday Night, April 18. Lernerville Speedway remains the only track on the planet to feature all three top divisions on a weekly card and our fourth division, the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar Sportsman, might be the most competitive of the fabled “Fabulous Four Divisions of Racing”.
Budweiser Points will be on the line right from the drop of the first green flag and 2013 Track Champions Brandon Spithaler in the Peoples TWP DIRTcar Sprints, Alex Ferree in the Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Models, Mat Williamson in the Diehl Auto Group DIRTcar Northeast Modifieds and Corey McPherson in the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar Sportsman will all be looking to repeat last season’s success. Runners up Brandon Matus, John Garvin Jr. and Brian Swartzlander will all be seeking redemption in the form of an Opening Night feature win, while AJ Flick has traded in his fendered Sportsman/Stock for a winged 410 Sprint Car!
Gates open at 5:00 and Fab Four Racing will start after the invocation and national anthem at 7:30 sharp. Local recording artist and Firecracker weekend concert series favorite Justin Fabus will be signing the national anthem.
Tickets remain unchanged at $14 for adults, $10 for senior citizens, $7 for students 11-17 years old and children 10 & under are admitted FREE with a paying adult! Pit passes remain unchanged as well at $20 for DIRTcar Members and $30 for non-members.
