Selinsgrove Speedway top Story

By Michael Batz

Selinsgrove Speedway top Story; however, it was not all an easy drive. A tricky race track pushed Tomecek to his limits as he raced the speedway and cut his way through lap traffic for the $2,500 win.

The battling was behind Tomecek for the second and third spots. Adam Carberry, Cody Keller, and Curt Michael traded the second spot at times over the 25-lap feature before Keller grabbed it for good. Jason Shultz rounded out the top three finishers from his 18th starting spot. Michael and Carberry were fourth and fifth.

Sixth through tenth in the finishing order were Derek Locke, Larry Kelleher, Davie Franek, Chad Layton, and Josh Weller.

Tomecek, Layton, and Nate Snyder won the heat races for the 360 Sprint Cars.

Next Saturday, Aug. 19, Selinsgrove Speedway will offer racing from the 360 Sprint Cars, 305 Sprint Cars, Pro Stocks, and the rescheduled Collier Paving and Construction Roadrunner 20. The Penn Mar Vintage Race Cars will also be on hand.

General Admission will be $12 and kids (12-17) $7. 11 and under will be free for the show starting at 7:30.
