FOR RELEASE: October 29th


SUSQUEHANNA, PA...Day two of the King of the Can Weekend at Penn Can Speedway will take place on Saturday, November 7th at 2:00 p.m. The show for the Race of Champions Sportsman, Race of Champions Street Stocks, IMCA Style Modifieds, Slingshots by Tobias, Factory Stocks and Four Cylinders will bring down the curtain on the racing season in the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania and Southern Tier of New York. Itís the last chance for fans in the area to get in a race before the long winter sets in.

   The RoC Open Sportsman will run a 30 lap feature paying $1,000 to win and will decide the season long championship. A Crate bonus will be paid to the top three 602 Crate Legal Sportsman cars across the line. The bonus will be $100, $75 and $50 respectively to the top three Crates across the line. 602 Crates run weekly at Penn Can and have proven to be on an even playing field with the Open Sportsman as Ryan Olsommer can attest. Olsommer bested the RoC Sportsman field in his Crate in the past and will look to do so again at the season finale.

   The IMCA Style Modifieds were originally slated to run 20 laps for $500 to win. That has changed thanks to Matt Roberts of M.R. Grafix, who will add an additional $100 to the winners share as well as $100 to second place. He will also provide $50 gift certificates to the third and fourth place finishers. But thatís not all. Drivers Mike and Tyler Stoddard of MT Head Racing are adding $50 to the second and third place finishers in the race.  That means that the winner will now take home $600 with second paying $450 and $350 going to the third place finisher. It will be a great way to close out the season for these drivers.

   The Race of Champions Street Stocks will go to battle in a $500 to win, 25 lap feature to determine the overall champion. Penn Can Track Champion Shane Wolf, Jr. is leading the way in the RoC standings as well and will look to lock up the title on his home track.

   The Four Cylinders will run a 20 lap feature, paying $400 to win. A $200 bonus was offered if a driver could sweep both nights of the King of the Can Weekend. Andy Brigham was the winner of night one and should he win again on the 7th, he would pocket the $400 winners share along with the $200 bonus, making his sweep worth $1,000. Of course there will be a strong field of contenders trying to pocket the $400 winners share themselves. The race is for Front Wheel Drive Four Cylinders only with Penn Can rules applying.

   The Factory Stocks will also run a 20 lap feature, paying $400 to win. This is by far their biggest purse of the year. Penn Can and Skyline rules will apply for this event.

   The Slingshots by Tobias will also be in competition on November 7th.  They will race for the National Tour purse and a strong field of cars is expected in what will be their final event of the year.

    The CRSA Sprint Cars were originally on the schedule but it has not yet been confirmed as to whether or not they will be in competition. A drivers meeting will be held this Friday (October 30th) at Five Mile Point where they will be racing, to determine if there will be enough drivers available to compete as there are a couple of conflicts in their schedule. An announcement will be made on Saturday as to their inclusion in the show. At that time the complete information sheet with the order of events will be posted on the Penn Can Facebook page along with other media outlets.

   We all know how miserable the past couple of winters have been so donít miss out on your final chance to fulfill your racing fix in the area. The conclusion of the King of the Can Weekend will take place on Saturday, November 7th at 2:00 p.m. Pit gates will open at 11:00 a.m., grandstand gates at noon and hot laps will begin at 1:00 p.m. Penn Can Speedway is located on Route 171 in Susquehanna, Pennsylvania.
