Clinton County Speedway Features Sprint Cars for Season Opener

Mill Hall, PA – Heavy rains forced speedway officials at the Clinton County Speedway to cancel their anticipated season opener on Friday, June 19.  As a result, the focus will shift to this coming Friday, June 26th to open the speedway for the first time in 2020.

The RaceSaver Sprint Cars will be the featured event for the evening.  Several teams have expressed their intent to compete on the 3/8th mile oval.  The race will be sanctioned by the Laurel Highlands RaceSaver Sprint Series, however several drivers from the PA Sprint Series and the Allegheny Sprint Series plan to attend.

Some of the drivers planning to compete on Friday are Lock Haven’s Jeffrey Weaver, the father-son team of Dale and Dakota Schweikart of Linden, Tyler Cochran from Williamsport, rookie Driver Matt Tebbs of Williamsport, Scott Lutz of Jonestown, Josh Beamer of Turbotville, and rookie Michael Petock of Bloomsburg.  All eight of these drivers participated in a practice session held on June 12th at the speedway.

In addition to the sprint cars, the Pro Stocks, 600 Micro Sprints, 270 Micro Sprints, and 4 Cylinders will be in competition as part of the five-division racing program.  All divisions will draw for heat race position and there will be a re-draw for the feature.  Gates will open at 5:15pm , with warm-ups at 7pm and racing will begin at 7:30pm.

Spectators will not be required to wear masks, though they are encouraged.  Fans are encouraged to practice social distancing and CDC guidelines throughout the night.  General Admission has been reduced to $12; Students, Senior Citizens and Military Personnel Admission is $10 with a valid ID and Pit Admission is $30.
