Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Race Rained Out On July 30; New Date Is August 13

Big Race Now Just Three Days Before USAC Midgets "Battleground: Lanco" Event


Newmanstown, PA -  Heavy thunderstorms in the afternoon with more precipitation in the evening's forecast caused the postponement of one of the biggest races of the year at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway on Saturday, July 30.


  The club's annual Clyde Martin Memorial Race, highlighted by the longest features of the season, double-points, and the honor of having your name placed on the perpetual trophy (it is handed down each year from the previous season's race winner), is now re-scheduled for Saturday, August 13. The two week delay is due to the fact that the speedway will not be racing on August 6. It is one of two Saturdays that are set aside, annually, for a break in the racing schedule at the Clyde.


  The postponement of the big Memorial Race sets up a terrific two-races-in-four-days situation for Lanco's Clyde Martin Speedway. With the Memorial now plotted on the calendar for August 13, it serves as a tremendous lead-in to the first-ever, history making, ground breaking appearance of the USAC National Midget Series on Tuesday, August 16. The ARDC Midgets will co-sanction the event with USAC as the Beasts of the East take on the Midwestern Warriors in Battleground: Lanco. Wingless 600 Sprints will also be on the August 16 menu of high speed adventure.


  Advance General Admission tickets for the USAC National Midget Tour race are available. You can purchase the tickets at the track during the August 13 event or you can also mail your payment for advanced tickets to Kim Adams; 314 Vinemont Rd; Reinholds, PA 17569. Please include the number and type of tickets and a self addressed, stamped envelope.


  Advanced ticket holders will be permitted to enter the speedway at 4 PM (1 hour prior to the start of race night general admission ticket sales) and access to the pit area until approximately 6 PM.


  Advanced tickets are $25 for adults (ages 13+) and $7 for kids (ages 6 - 12).

  On Saturday, August 13, gates open at 4:30 p.m. with warm-ups scheduled to begin at 6:00. The first heat race goes green at 7:00.


  Come out and LIVE the excitement that is Lanco and the Clyde Martin Memorial Race AND the USAC Midgets in Battleground: Lanco!
