Williams Grove In Action Twice Over Labor Day Holiday Weekend
Twin sprint memorial programs on tap, Street Stocks added to Friday


Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will be in action twice during the upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend, both on Friday and Sunday night with special memorial races.

Friday August 30 will see the track honor late Promoter Of The Year Jack Gunn with the running of the rich 31st annual Jack Gunn Memorial for the 410 sprints.

The 30-lap feature will pay $6,000 to the winner and $450 just to start.

The Williams Grove Saturday Series street stocks have been added to the Friday program in place of the sidewinder sprints.

The street stocks will compete under Williams Grove rules in a non-point event.

And then Sunday, September 1 the Cumberland County oval will honor the late Billy Kimmel with a regular program of 410 and 358 sprints.

Lap and bonus money will be in effect for the 410 sprints in the Kimmel Memorial.

Action at both shows gets underway at 7:30 pm.

All three-sprint races at the track during the weekend will be full point events as the season starts to come to a close.

The Gunn Memorial will be the next to last event in the 2013 Diamond Series at the track.

Though winless to date at the track, Fayetteville’s Lance Dewease is the current Diamond Series point leader with just one race to go in the series after the Gunn Memorial, coming up on September 27.

Fred Rahmer continues to lead the 2013 Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint points over defending titlist Greg Hodnett.

Kevin Nouse is the current Tool Shed of America 358 sprint point leader with Austin Hogue in tow.

Both the Friday and Sunday racing programs offer a fireworks display as part of the holiday weekend celebration at the track.
