Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway has begun work on its 2020 schedule of events that will include events for the 358 sprint car division.
The speedway will be allowing the usage of a 5 x 5 top wing during the 2020 season along with the previous standard, and still acceptable 3 x 5 wing.
“Our teams came to us and expressed a desire to be permitted to run the 5 x 5 top wing now that competition elsewhere in the region has made the move to allow them for the 2020 season,” Williams Grove General Manager Justin Loh said.
“The teams just want the chance to remain as competitive as possible no matter where they choose to race and we feel the same way at Williams Grove,” Loh said of the track’s decision.
Williams Grove 358 sprint teams are also reminded that the Chassis Support Bar Rule will be in effect for the division beginning in 2020.
Williams Grove closed its 2019 season on October 5 with the running of the $65,000 to win National Open for 410 sprint cars, won by Brent Marks of Myerstown.
Opening day 2020 is tentatively set for Sunday afternoon, March 15 at 2 pm featuring a program of 410 sprint car action.
