Plenty Of Williams Grove Racing Action To Go In September
Eyes turn to Oct. 4 & 5 World of Outlaws National Open


Mechanicsburg – The racing season is running toward the finish line but there’s still plenty of action to be taken in at Williams Grove Speedway, starting this Friday night September 20.

On the racing card will be the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars and the Tool Shed of America 358 sprints at 7:30 pm.

Both sprint divisions will compete in full programs of qualifying heat races and feature events with bonus money in effect for the 410 sprints.

And both shows will of course be pivotal toward the crowning of the 2013 track champions.

In the 358 sprint standings, thanks to rain a limited number of shows have been completed for the division this season at the track.

After September 13th double features for the class, Kevin Nouse leads points for the 358 sprints over Austin Hogue with just three shows remaining on the season for the division.

Meanwhile, Fred Rahmer’s point advantage over Greg Hodnett in the 410 sprint class continues to shrink, now down to just 175 markers of separation.

The final 358 sprint shows are coming up on September 27, October 11 and on October 18.

The track champions in both sprint divisions will be crowned on Champions Night on October 18.

Williams Grove Speedway will host a World of Outlaws tune-up night for the 410 sprints on September 27 that will also see the crowning of the 2013 Diamond Series titlist.

The tune-up race is meant to give the regular weekly sprint stars a head start on qualifying for the following weeks National Open races.

The biggest sprint car show on the East Coast is set for Williams Grove Speedway on October 4 and 5 as the World of Outlaws invade for the annual National Open.

The World of Outlaws sprint car sanctioned event will pay $50,000 to the winner of the Saturday night 40-lap National Open finale.

Friday’s Open Preliminary will go 25 laps in distance and pay $8,000 to the winner.
