Spring Grove, Pennsylvania native, Brian Leppo, will return to sprint car action this Friday night, March 30th, at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The Keen Motorsports pilot finished 7th at the Williams Grove Speedway “Opener” on March 23rd – holding off Rick Lafferty, Danny Holtgraver, and Chad Layton for the top 10 finish in the non-stop, 25 lap main event. This weekend, the familiar Peterbilt/Hunter Truck Sales sponsored ’17’ will return to ‘The Grove’ – looking to improve on his top 10 performance, and hopefully, add another mark in his new season win column. The super late models will join the ‘410’s’ on the evening card.
“We are really excited for this Friday” quoted Leppo about returning to Williams Grove this upcoming weekend, “We had a solid run last Friday and now we have something to build on!”

The transition from ’71’ to ’17’ has obviously been a comfortable one for Leppo – with five starts equaling 1 win, 1 top 5, and 2 top 10’s for the Keen Motorsports program. The lone victory came at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania on March 17th over a hard charging Brian Montieth and Danny Dietrich. The former Lincoln Speedway ‘Rookie of the Year’ is currently tied with Adam Wilt in the Speedway Motors Central PA Sprint Car Point Series; only trailing Alan Krimes by 12 points for seventh position.
“As of now, we are just racing at Williams Grove this weekend (March 30th)” explained Leppo, “If we go to Lincoln, it will be a last minute decision.”
