BATAVIA, OH – A band of the nation’s elite dirt late model teams will tackle Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s monster half-mile oval next week for the 29th Annual Pittsburgher 100. The crown-jewel event, held October 6th-7th, will be the season finale for Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.
The 29th Annual Pittsburgher 100 will kick off on Friday, October 6th, as the LOLMDS takes center stage for Miller Welders Time Trials and Heat Races. The RUSH Late Models and Penn-Ohio Pro Stocks will also compete in their preliminary events on Friday night. Saturday’s activities will include a Dirt Racing Outreach Service from 3:30 – 4:15pm, followed by a Driver Autograph Session from 4:30 – 5:15pm. The on-track action on Saturday night will include B-Mains and the 100-lap, $20,000-to-win main event for the LOLMDS, along with feature events for the RUSH Late Models and Penn-Ohio Pro Stocks.
In 2016, Josh Richards roared to the lead on lap-25 and never looked back – winning his second-career Pittsburgher 100. Scott Bloomquist, Gregg Satterlee, Don O’Neal, and Jimmy Owens completed the top-five. Richards, who leads the current Lucas Oil National Championship Standings, will return to defend his Pittsburgher 100 title.
