OPEN WHEEL DOUBLEHEADER & LATE MODEL SPEEDWEEK
HEADLINE THIS WEEKEND’S ACTION AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will be in action two times this
coming weekend, June 5-6, with special programs featuring the Rislone
United Racing Company (URC) traveling sprint car organization and the
second annual Appalachian Mountain Speedweek Series for late models. Track
gates will open at 5 p.m. and qualifying will begin at 7 p.m. both nights.
Unlike the Jack Gunn Memorial Challenge race against the central
Pennsylvania 358 sprint cars three weeks ago, this Saturday’s program will
feature the URC sprint car drivers in a complete series of qualifying races
and 25-lap main event of their own. The speedway’s weekly A&A Auto Stores
358 sprint cars will also compete in a 25-lap main event. Joining the two
sprint car divisions will be the pro stocks in a 15-lap feature and
roadrunners in a 12-lap main event.
Trevor Lewis of Upper Black Eddy won the Challenge race two years in a row
and will be a top pick to sweep this year’s dual events for the URC
contingent at Selinsgrove Speedway.
The speedway will then swing back into action on Sunday with the late
models taking center stage as the sole attraction in the Appalachian
Mountain Speedweek series sponsored by Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center.
The late models will compete in a 40-lap main event paying $5,000 to win.
Time trials, heats, and C- and B-Mains will be the format for setting the
24-car starting field for Selinsgrove’s edition of late model speedweek.
A pre-race favorite entering Sunday’s event will be Jeff Rine of Danville.
Rine has dominated late model competition at Selinsgrove Speedway with five
consecutive wins since the start of the season. In fact, Rine made speedway
history last weekend by becoming the first driver to win five late model
races in a row at the track. Last year’s event drew 54 entries and was won
by Jeremy Miller of Gettysburg.
Race sponsor Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center of Paxinos has served
central Pennsylvania with comprehensive auto body, collision, and repair
services since 1978. The company, owned and operated by Jeff Kurtz, also
manages its own recycling center.
Selinsgrove Raceway Park will present a program of go kart and micro sprint
car racing at 7 p.m. Friday, June 4. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.
