Williams Grove Speedway

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the premier sprint car event of the season in the east this Friday and Saturday, September 28 and 29, when it hosts the 50th annual World of Outlaws National Open races.

Friday will find the historic oval hosting a full program of World of Outlaws sprint car racing complete with a 25-lap main event paying $8,000 to win before the big one takes center stage on Saturday.

Saturday’s 50th annual World of Outlaws National Open will go the customary 40 laps with the winner going home with $50,000 in his coffers.

Qualifying time trials for both events will begin at 7:30 pm.

The two-day Williams Grove World of Outlaws vs. PA Posse stand will be the third match-up of the season at the oval between the two factions.

Fred Rahmer and Steve Kinser split laurels for the groups during a May meeting before local turned outlaw Cody Darrah of Red Lion claimed the Summer Nationals on July 21.

Outlaws champion Jason Meyers of Clovis, California claimed the 2011 National Open on October 7 after a week’s delay due to rain.

Meyers also claimed the night before the Open in 2011 as well, on September 30.

The current Williams Grove sprint car point leader, Greg Hodnett of Thomasville was the most recent PA Posse Open victor, taking the prestigious checkers back in 2009.

Fireworks displays will be a part of both National Open races this weekend.

The National Open itself carries a raindate of September 30.
