One of PA’s highest sprint car counts of the season expected once again
With Just one week until the Keystone RaceSaver Challenge pre-registration has once again reached 50 cars. The 4th annual affair is part of the blue collar classic and is the biggest RaceSaver race on the east coast 4 years running.
Teams from Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Western PA as well as all of your PA Sprint Series favorites are expected to race. Former PASS champ Tyler Bear along with fan favorite and former PASS competitor Vince Snyder will also compete. As active 410 drivers in 2015 Bear and Snyder will be handicapped to the rear of the heat, last year Logan Wagner did the same and finished second in the main event to Jeff Geiges.
Fans will have an opportunity to win as well as 25 flying disks will be thrown into the crowd with the autograph of each qualified driver along with their car number. Each disk will contain 2 free tickets to the Harrisburg Heat indoor soccer season opener for fans looking to cure their offseason blues. The fan with the disk from the winning driver will win a flat screen TV courtesy of Eichelbergers Well drilling.
Saturdays event will include group time trials for the RaceSaver/IMCA sprints along with heats and consys to determine the A main field. At the conclusion of the evening there is also a founder’s cup race for non-qualifiers with the winner automatically qualifying for the 2016 race. This week PASS driver John Bordlemay donated an extra $400 to the founder’s cup race which will supplement the founder’s cup purse. Bordlemay has possibly the most legendary crew in the area with former Drivers Mike Lloyd and Sam Armstrong turning the wrenches. The founder’s cup event honors founders Tom Worrick, Gerry Reinhart , Todd Lynn and Gordy Lynn who started the series in 1998.
