This Saturday will mark the first of two appearances by the popular Rapid Tire USAC East Coast wingless sprint cars in a 25-lap feature. Alex Bright of Collegeville won two of the three races for the division last year at the track with Briggs Danner of Allentown also picking up a win.
The Apache Tree Service PASS 305 sprint cars will be making their second appearance of the season in a 20-lap feature. Ken Duke of Selinsgrove was awarded the win in the season opener on April 2.
Making their first start of the season, the MAPCO Machine Shop limited late models will compete in a 20-lap feature paying $1,200 to win. Devin Hart of Port Royal scored three wins and the track title last year. Also picking up two wins each last year were Trent Brenneman of Mifflintown and Andrew Yoder of Middleburg.
The A&A Auto Stores roadrunners will compete in their fourth 12-lap race of the season this weekend with Nathan Romig of McClure leading the standings by 50 points over Matt Ney of Gordon.
