From Mercer Raceway Park
Mercer, PA — (June 13, 2015) — Heavy rains overnight forced the postponement of the Auto Racers for Kids charity race, presented by Bonnell’s Rod Shop. The event has been rescheduled to August 22 at Mercer Raceway Park.
Next week, the Park will hold its Mid-Season Championships. Double points will be on the line in all six divisions that make up the Saturday Night Live! racing program. In addition, this event will be the Meet Your Heroes Night! Come out to get photo opportunities, autographs and more, as you will be able to mingle with the drivers before the feature events take place.
The closest championship contest is in the 410 Sprint Car ranks. You could throw a blanket over Brandon Matus, Eric Williams, Jack Sodeman, Jr., and Adam Kekich. Matus has 234 markers, while Kekich has 231! Rod George sits fifth, at 203 points, and if the luck comes his way, he could make a big move in the standings for the 4 Your Car Connection and World of Wheels crown.
The Bonnell’s Rod Shop Outlaw Sprint Warriors has a new points leader. Cody Bova not tops the chart. George Hobaugh, Jr. is second. Quite a way back is C.J. Jones, Evan Kornbau and Darin Gallagher complete the top five.

Mark Marcucci enters the Mid-Season Championships with the biggest advantage over his rivals in the Rock Concrete Supply Modified Lites. Jacob Bova, Shane Webb, Bill Stivason, and Mike Flockerzi will do their best to close the gap.
