The winners of Friday’s race at Williams Grove and Saturday’s race at Selinsgrove will be guaranteed starters in Sunday’s finale for the 360’s at Selinsgrove.

Saturday’s race will feature the 360 sprint cars in a 25-lap preliminary event paying $3,000 to win and $300 to start.

Joining the 360 sprint cars on the July 29 racing program will be the super late models in a 25-lap main event paying $2,000 to win and pro stocks in a 15-lap feature paying $500 to win. A professional fireworks display will be on the program along with a post-race “Party In The Pits” for all race teams.
