Team Fully Injected’s Brandon Spithaler and Adam Kekich each compete at Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania on a week by week basis in the ‘410’ sprint car division. Each driver actually graduated from the limited sprint car class at Sharon Speedway; and have been with Team Fully Injected in ‘410’ sprint car competition for over a year. With the All-Star Circuit of Champions making an appearance at the Mercer 3/8’s mile oval next Saturday night, May 12th, Kekich and Spithaler will each need to use this weekend as a valuable tune-up session for the $5,000-to-win event. The All-Star Circuit of Champions will likely bring top notch regional and national ‘410’ sprint car competition to the Mercer, PA oval; including such names as Dale Blaney, Tim Shaffer, and David Gravel. With a highly talented roster expected, Kekich and Spithaler will each have to be on their ‘A’ game, and prepared to race their way into the main event.

Evan City, Pennsylvania’s Brandon Spithaler is the most recent ‘410’ sprint car winner and only winner at Mercer Raceway Park in 2012. Adam Kekich, a third generation driver and Hermitage, PA native, has had a number of top 10’s at Mercer Raceway Park in 2011, and also qualified for an All-Star A-main at Mercer Raceway Park last season. Both Spithaler and Kekich are eager to represent western Pennsylvania in the duel with the All-Stars, and plan to use their ‘home track’ advantage against the incoming travelers.
This Saturday night’s event will be a regular show and first point night for the ‘410’ sprint cars at Mercer Raceway Park. The All-Stars will then take the center stage on Saturday, May 12th, with their $5,000-t0-win program. For more information, visit www.allstarsprint.com / or www.mercerracewaypark.com!
