Mechanicsburg - Williams Grove Speedway will close out the month of July coming up on Friday, July 30 at 7:30 pm when the oval hosts the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars in a Yellow Breeches 500 race and another MacMor Construction Summer Series event for the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint cars.
Plus, a make-up Summer Series feature postponed from July 16 will also be on the Williams Grove Friday slate.
The make-up feature will be the first race contested on Friday’s program following practice laps.
Adult general admission for July 30 is $15 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for $10.
Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.
The 25-lap Yellow Breeches 500 race for the 410 sprints will pay $5,000 to the winner and $500 to start.
Both of the MacMor Construction Summer Series races for the 358 sprints will pay $1,500 to the winners with distances of 25 laps posted for each.
Gates for all the action will open at 5:30 pm.
It remains to be seen if anyone can upend the domination of Carlisle’s Derek Locke in the 358 sprint ranks.
Locke has won all four division races held to date at Williams Grove.
However Locke has accepted a $500 challenge for the July 16 make-up race, opting to start 12th in the field.
His challenge is to win.
If he can still get the win, even after starting outside the sixth row, he will claim a $500 bonus on top of the posted $1,500 winner’s share.
