The weather isn’t going to be the only thing hot and humid this weekend as team Fully Injected prepares for another weekend round close to home. Fully Injected drivers in western Pennsylvania including Rod George, Danny Holtgraver, Kevin Schaeffer, Scott Priester, Brandon Matus, and Adam Kekich, will all get to participate in weekly events at Lernerville Speedway and Mercer Raceway Park this weekend. Some of the Fully Injected teammates, such as Rod George out of Kittanning, Pennsylvania, have potential to claim championships this year. With Rod George’s recent winning streak, Danny Holtgraver competing close to home, and with Brandon Matus’ 2011 success at Lernerville Speedway, things should surely be interesting this weekend in western Pennsylvania.
