SHERMANS DALE, Pa. (January 5, 2024) – The countdown to the 38th running of the Chili Bowl Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is in full effect, and for most of the competitors seeking the event’s coveted Golden Driller, the time for last minute preparations is nearly exhausted. Luckily for Derek Sheaffer, who is making his first-ever visit to Tulsa Expo Raceway, a long list of dedicated partners has made preparations easy, Advanced Septic Services and Sharar’s Grocery and Downtown Deli included.

“I’ve had this trip circled on my calendar for a long time, but it wouldn’t have been possible without all of our dedicated partners,” Derek Sheaffer noted. “Advanced Septic Services and Sharar’s Grocery and Downtown Deli join a long list of supporters that really helped me elevate this dream into a reality. I’m with a great team in Steve Buckwalter Racing and I’m confident big things are ahead.”

Founded by Mark & Ronda Richard, Advanced Septic Services has served as Perry County’s only full-service septic company since 1995, offering a variety of septic-related residential and commercial services including septic tank cleaning and repairs, portable restroom rentals, sewer and drain line maintenance, and plumbing. Molded by a family-owned foundation, Advanced Septic Services understands the importance of prompt and reliable service, utilizing professional and qualified personnel to accomplish any task at hand.

One of Central Pennsylvania’s best kept secrets, Sharar’s Grocery and Downtown Deli offers some of the region’s best soups, subs and sandwiches, all made fresh to order daily with store hours spanning seven days a week. Located in Newport, Sharar’s Grocery and Downtown Deli is not only conveniently located along route 34 in Newport Square, but it’s the perfect pre-race destination for any short track enthusiast, especially those heading north to the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” or south to Williams Grove Speedway or the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway. 

“I think it’s to nobody’s surprise that Central Pennsylvania has probably the most dedicated fanbase in the country,” Sheaffer added. “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I know others will join me in supporting those who support racing.”

Derek Sheaffer’s Chili Bowl Nationals campaign with Steve Buckwalter Racing will commence on Sunday, January 7, with practice, followed by his respective qualifying night on Monday, January 8.
