Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will allow the sprint car teams to prepare for next week’s World of Outlaws invasion coming up this Friday night, May 7 at 7:30 pm when it hosts a Hoosier Diamond Series World of Outlaws Tune Up event.
The special tune up for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will pay $6,000 to the 25-lap winner with time trials setting the heat lineups.
May 7 will be VP Racing Fuels Night at the track with the HJ Towing and Recovery 358 sprint cars also on the racing program for their third race of the young season.
Gates will open at 5:30 pm.
Adult general admission for the May 7 racing program is set at $20 with students ages 13-20 admitted for just $10.
Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.
So far this season at Williams Grove Speedway no driver has been able to repeat in 410 sprint car action while Derek Locke has copped both 358 sprint main events contested.
The $6,000 top prize for the sprint cars on Friday night is sure to be very attractive to the Williams Grove teams as they prepare for the outlaws next week.
Anthony Macri and Brent Marks are surely top contenders to park in victory lane in the tune up race and when the outlaws show up the next week.
Macri of Dillsburg will use the event to work on his qualifying game for the May 14/15 outlaws stand.
“We use the tune ups for practicing time trials because with WoO shows time trials are everything and it sets the tone for the rest of the night,” Macri says.
“Time trial good and you have a shot at a win but not time trial well and it feels like you’re digging yourself out of a hole for the rest of the night.”
Marks of Myerstown says the tune up race benefits all the locals.
“We use the tune up and treat it like any other World of Outlaw race. It’s nice for the local guys to run their format and just get that extra week to get comfortable with how the program runs,” Marks says.
