SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour returns to Selinsgrove Speedway at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 4, for the highly anticipated Eleven Oaks Farm “Battle of the Groves II.” The 30-lap main event for the 360 sprint cars will pay $5,000 to win out of the $20,000 purse.
The MAVTV Motorsports Network will broadcast the race, a first in the speedway’s 73-year history.
Pit gates will open at 4 p.m. followed by grandstand gates at 5 p.m. Engine starts are slated for 6:15 p.m. The rain date, if needed, will be 6 p.m. Sunday, May 5.
The limited late models will make their season debut at the track and compete in a 20-lap feature paying $1,000 to win.
Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove is the defending winner of the ASCS National tour race at the Snyder County half-mile oval. The former three-time track champion out-raced a stellar field of 41 360 sprint car drivers for the victory in last year’s inaugural event.
The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series National Tour will kick off the Eastern swing at Williams Grove Speedway the night before at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 3.
Race weekend sponsor Eleven Oaks Farm prides itself on raising Wagyu cattle and Gloucestershire Old Spot hogs in an open pasture, low stress environment. The 360 sprint car feature winner and one lucky fan at each track will receive a beef and pork prize pack. Visit elevenoaksfarms.com for more company and product information.
