BIG WINNERS, SPRINT CAR SIMULATORS RETURN TO LANCO THIS SATURDAY
Brickerville, PA - After a wildly successful Memorial Day Open Show, the Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway swings back into action this Saturday, June 10. Highlighting the program this Saturday will be the five weekly divisions of micro sprints, plus Wade Kreft's Outlaw Sprint Car Simulators.
The four sprint car simulators will allow fans to experience the thrill of racing a high-powered, fire-breathing Outlaw Sprinter. The simulators can be integrated, so that a group of thrill seekers can race against one another, or fans can grab the wheel and race against cars that are generated by the simulator's computer.
The simulators will be set up on the hill next to the concession stands. The hill, which is normally off-limits to spectators, will be roped off so that anxious speed junkies from the grandstand will have access to the simulators all night long.
Excitement on the Clyde Martin speedway will be produced by the Sportsman, 125cc, 270cc Four-Stroke, 270cc Two-Stroke, and 600cc micro sprints. The 600cc micros will start things off at 6 p.m., as they compete in qualifying heat races. Qualifiers will follow for the other four divisions, and the evening will be capped off by 25-lap features for all five divisions.
Two drivers will look to extend their winning streaks on Saturday. A.J. Michael, the defending 125cc champion, is riding a three-race win streak in that class. And Mike Rutherford, who captured the 270cc Four-Stroke title last season, is undefeated in 2006. Rutherford has throttled his mount to victory lane in all five events conducted at the one-eighth mile oval this year.
Gates will open at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, with warm-ups beginning at 5:00. The first heat race goes green at 6 p.m.
Adult general admission is just $8.00, with Senior Citizens and high school students admitted for $6.00. Children ages 6 -12 can watch the incredible racing action for a mere $2.00.
Saturday, April 29: Heats, Consolations, and Features for the Sportsman, 125cc,
250cc Four-Strokes, 250cc Two-Strokes, and 600cc micro sprints. Gates open @
3:30, warm-ups at 5:00, and racing at 6 p.m. Adult General Admission is $8.00.
