Central Pennsylvania will be busy this weekend with sprint car action in not just the 410 ranks, but also the 358 and 360 cubic inch divisions. With both Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway hosting big paying 358/360ci events, one can expect large car counts and huge fan turnouts at both facilities.
On Friday night, Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania will be hosting the URC sanctioned 360/358 Challenge known as the Rislone Nationals, which will pay $3,000. JJ Grasso currently sits on top of the URC Rislone Sprint Series point standings coming into Friday’s event at Williams Grove. The URC Rislone Sprint Series , which stands for United Racing Company, is a traveling 360 cubic inch sprint car series based out of Dover, Delaware. Grasso and the rest of the URC 360 travelers will be back in action Saturday night in Bridgeport, New Jersey.
With fellow central Pennsylvania Saturday night racetrack,Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, hosting the annual Dream Race Extreme for the 410 sprinters this Saturday evening, Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania will take advantage of the 410 sprint car off weekend and host the 358 Sprint Championships. It is a time trial event and the top 358 sprint car teams in the region are expected to attend. The 358’s are a support division to the 410 sprints at Lincoln Speedway on a regular basis.
Port Royal’s ‘Dream Race Extreme’ this Saturday night has a potential of being worth $24,000 to the winner. If a front row starter would choose to go to the tail of the 24 car starting field and win the event, the $12,000 payday would turn into a $24,000 winner’s share. The 40 lap event will allow the pole sitter to decide if he or she wants to take the challenge and go to the tail to try and earn the $12,000 bonus; if they would oppose, then the outside pole sitter will get offered the choice. The winner of the 40 lap event on the giant Juniata County Fairgrounds half-mile is still guaranteed $12,000; no matter where he or she would start. The bonus is being put up by Lelands.com.
Team Fully Injected will be trying to repeat their results from last weekend by adding more top 10 and top 5 finishes to their already impressive 2011 slate. Members including Brandon Matus, Scott Priester, and Rod George, will all look to repeat their consistency in western Pennsylvania- and hopefully put another FI driver in victory lane. Kevin Schaeffer, who was plagued by misfortune last Friday night in two different instances throughout the evening, will look to regain some momentum as the racing season at Lernerville Speedway comes to a close.
