Gates will open at 5:30 pm with racing action slated for 7:30.
The chance to see three sprint car divisions in action at Williams Grove is unique for the track as two divisions of sprinters at most have been regular fanfare at the oval for as long as most can remember.
The 410 sprint cars will be racing in a $5,500 to win, 25-lap main event in the Spring Sprint Special while the USAC East cars compete for $1,500 to win.

Steve Drevicki scored once at the track last season in USAC East action.
In 305 sprint action at Williams Grove last year Austin Reed scored the only show completed.
