Going into the final race of the Beer Hill Cup series just 1 point separates the top three and nine points the top five in the overall standings. IMCA points are award 40 to the winner and reduce by one for each spot so the race will be close for the championship on Friday with an added twist.

We have visitors.

Fridays event is a cosanctioned race with the Mid Atlantic Sprint Series (MASS) which means several teams will make the trip from the east to compete Saturday adding top talent into an already level playing field. MASS has been enjoying a great inaugural season featuring plenty of close racing in a fun and competitive environment. A good car count is anticipated which means teams vying to be the first Beer Hill Cup champion will need to be on their game. Action Friday begins at 7:30 with Gates open at 5:30.

Saturday the series moves to Selinsgrove Speedway in a rare Saturday appearance that harkens back to the day of the Sel-Wil circuit. With no other races on the MASS schedule several teams plan to make it a weekend by traveling to Selinsgrove Saturday also. Our last event at Selinsgrove was a close race and Saturday should be no exception with a good mix of talent as no other RaceSaver tracks are running. Track gates will open at 5 p.m. with racing slated to begin at 7:30 p.m.

The weekend caps of at Susquehanna Speedway which the series has not visited in over a month as teams once again travel the same weekend schedule as back in the Sel-Wil days. Teams eager to return look forward a great show on a rare Sunday night event. Pit Gates: 4:30 PM, Grandstands: 5 PM, Hot Laps: 6:15 PM, Time Trials: 7 PM.

PASS Local and National points will be at the forefront this weekend as the season winds down and the race is tight as teams try to improve their standings in the best of 20 format which allows teams to replace bad finished with top finishes. Just 23 points separate the top 3 as teams can easily make a jump by replacing a 24th place "DNF" with a top five.

The PA Sprint Series, Mid Atlantic Sprint Series and Laurel Highlands Sprint Series are RaceSaver(R) series sanctioned by IMCA.

Mechanicsburg, PA

It was a fun night away from the track as fans and race teams gathered at Quaker Steak and Lube in Mechanicsburg for an evening of fun and friendship. Matt Miller from the Beer Hill Gang hosted the event which donates a percentage of food sales to the series along with raffle items provided by teams and supporters. Scott Ellerman and Jaremi Hanson had their cars on display as curious restaurant patrons had the opportunity to see our cars up close. Several drivers were also on hand along with volunteers from the series. Even Dave Stewart "the commissioner" of the Beer Hill Gang was on hand for the fun.

$1161 was raised through the raffle and auction while the food percentage will be forwarded by the restaurant later. The beer Hill Gang has already promised to round out to $1500 which was our goal. The money from the fund raiser pays position 15-30 in 2017 points $100 each.

In addition to the money raised for the point fund an additional $200 was added to the Beer Hill Cup fund via shirt sales as only a few shirts remain. The total anticipated fund for the Beer Hill Cup will round out to $2600 which will net the winner $775, 2nd $650, 3rd $520, 4th $390, and 5th $260. Front runners Darren Miller and Scott Ellerman along with contender and current points leader Zach Newlin were on hand last night and discussed the excitement going into next week with Jake Waters . the interview along with others is on our facebook page.

PASS would like to thank the Beer Hill Gang and especially Matt and Kahla Miller for their personal efforts to come out and support the series at these events and experience the excitement and talent the series has to offer. PASS is at Clinton County and Path Valley this weekend before moving into a 3 race weekend next week beginning with the Beer Hill Cup finale.
