Pennsylvania will have sprint car racing up to its chin come Monday evening- as this weekend marks as another exciting weekend for open wheel enthusiasts in the Keystone State.
The PA Posse is busy this weekend on the road competing in the annual Keystone Cup Memorial Day weekend event -which consists of a six race mini series at various central Pennsylvania tracks. Tonight’s round of the Keystone Cup is at the notorious Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Round1 of the series at Grandview Speedway on Wednesday night went to Brian Leppo, with round two at Port Royal being over taken by rain last night.
Western Pennsylvania also has a busy weekend in store with a three race weekend possibility. Lernerville Speedway on Friday, Mercer Raceway Park on Saturday, and Tri-City Speedway in Franklin, Pennsylvania on Sunday -all are hosting 410ci events this weekend. Mercer Raceway Park’s event is paying $5,000 to the winner while Tri-City Speedway, on Sunday evening, is paying $3,000 to the winner; which are respectable paying regional unsanctioned races. Lernerville Speedway is also hosting the USAC National Sprint Cars for the first time in recent years. The traveling traditional sprint car professionals will be rolling into town early Monday to kick off their 2011 Eastern Storm at Lernerville Speedway that evening. Fully Injected is sponsoring the Fast Time Award for this event on Monday, May 30th!
- The “Greatest Show on Dirt” will be at The Dirt Track at Charlotte tonight for a one night event paying $10,000 to the winner. The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event will also be aired live on SPEED starting tonight at 8PM this evening.
- The All Star Circuit of Champions, lead by Dale Blaney, head to Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio this weekend for a two night stay.
- Also, the King of the West Series will be in competition- hosting a double header Memorial Day weekend event at the Calistoga Speedway in the heart of wine country, California.
Team Fully Injected has a busy weekend in store – with most teammates competing at Lernerville Speedway, Mercer Raceway Park, and Tri-City Speedway in western Pennsylvania. Some will compete at all three Western PA possibilities such as Rod George and Brandon Matus; while Pittsburgh native, Danny Holtgraver, will be heading west to Fremont Speedway to compete with the All-Stars.
As for myself: Williams Grove tonight – Mercer Raceway Park tomorrow evening – Lernerville Speedway on Monday night.
