URC Sprints visiting this week….

June 23rd, 2014

This Friday night features the second visit of the year of the always exciting URC Sprint series. Joining them will be the Late Model Sportsman, Semi Lates, Pure Stocks, Modifieds as well as a special visit by the Penn- Mar Vintage Car Club. 

The URC Sprints come in to Bedford with Davie “No Panic” Franek of Wantage, NJ leading the points. In the two previous visits to Bedford, Robbie Stillwaggon thrilled the fans to score the win each time. Without a doubt, Stillwaggon has established a strong fan base at the western Pennsylvania oval. Saturday night at Grandview, mechanical problems forced Stillwaggon to change cars and start eighteenth in the main event. Without the help of caution flags, Stillwaggon powered his way to a strong fourth place finish.

This weeks racing action will be presented by the SAC Inc. family of companies in Bedford. These include SAC/ Shell shops, True Value Hardware, Interchange Parts and Quality Inn.  

General admission for this special event will be $15, with kids 12 and under free. Pit admission will be $25. 

Coming next Thursday in honor of Independence Day will be the second annual Milt Miller Tribute for the Late Models. Joining them will be the Semi Lates, Pure Stocks and Laurel Highlands Racesaver Sprint Cars. In deference to the July 4th holiday being on Friday, we will be racing Thursday night.

We look forwards to seeing everyone at the track, and would like to thank all of the racers and fans for their support so far this year.
