Traditional Events Return to Clyde Martin Speedway in 2018; One New Race Added to Sked
PA - March 5 - The 2018 racing schedule at Lanco's Clyde Martin
Memorial Speedway offers a nice mix of weekly points-paying shows spiced
with its traditional "specials" and one brand new, big race to be
presented on Memorial Day weekend.
The upcoming campaign kicks off with the No Wing Spring Fling on
Saturday, April 7. For the third consecutive season, the No Wing Spring
Fling will feature the USAC Eastern Regional Midgets presented by ARDC.
The mighty Midgets will be joined by the wingless 600 and wingless 270
Micro Sprints in a wild and woolly tripleheader. Alex Bright, the 2016
ARDC Champion, has captured the past two NWSF main events, while
defending champ Ryan Greth looks for a return to victory lane at the
Clyde. Greth won the very first ARDC event at Clyde Martin Memorial
Speedway on July 4, 2015.
Preceding the No Wing Spring Fling on April 7 will be car inspection
for Lanco members competing in all five weekly divisions. Practice for
the weekly competitors will also be held that day along with Rookie
The chase for the 2018 track championships begins on Saturday, April 14
as the five winged weekly classes - 600cc, 270cc, Sportsman, 125cc, and
250cc Four-Strokes - begin pursuit of their respective point titles.
Other notable dates include the second annual Kids Night on May 5, the
prestigious Clyde Martin Memorial Race on July 28, the third visit by
the USAC National Midget Championship on Saturday, August 4 (a change
from the previous two years' Tuesday night slot), and the annual
two-day, Labor Day Shootout in the beginning of September.
As in seasons past, the Clyde will host its traditional Memorial Day
Open Show at the end of May, but this year there is a twist to the
holiday biggie...it's been expanded to a two-night blockbuster.
On Saturday, May 26, the Clyde's five weekly classes will compete in an
Open Show format with 50 show-up points awarded to Lanco member's cars.
Admission prices, car entry fees, and purse structure will be the same
as a "regular" Saturday night event.
The brand-spanking new event, set for Sunday, May 27, will see winged
600's and winged 270's in action along with the All Star Slingshots. And
it's sure to whet the appetite of every 600cc and 270cc driver, as the
winged warriors will be enticed by a "where else do you see this?" format where every finishing position in every race will be paid, including heats, B-Mains, and of course, the A-Main!
Lanco officials are extremely grateful to Rich and Diane Fox of Bud's
Spring Service for their continued support of the Memorial Day Open and
this new Sunday event, and the club is proud to offer this one of a kind
contest where each position in every race (for the 600's and 270's)
will be paid on May 27.
