Inaugural Event Less Than 10 Days Away At Selinsgrove Speedway & Selinsgrove Raceway Park

MYERSTOWN, PA – The World Series of Dirt Racing Presented by Bob Hilbert Sportswear is less than two weeks away, and event organizers Rich Tobias and Doug Rose continue to announce the addition of marketing partners and other details that make this inaugural event a “can’t miss” mud slinging adventure for racers and fans. The three-day weekend of dirt racing nirvana takes place from October 12 – 14, with Thursday, the 11th, set as “move in day” for campers and race teams.

When the 410 Sprint Cars run a complete show on Sunday, October 14, their World Series of Dirt Racing card will be sponsored by Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic/ Hoosier Racing Tires. The mighty 410’s will vie for a $5,000 winner’s prize in a 30-lap feature race.

Also on Sunday’s docket are the 602 Modifieds. They will compete in qualifying events on Saturday, then battle for a $1,000 winner’s paycheck on Sunday in a 25-lap main presented by Lias Tire/ American Racer Tires. The Street Stocks/Pro Stocks are on Sunday’s menu as well, and they will race 25-laps for $1,000-to-win. The All Star Slingshots also compete on Sunday – on the big track – in a 12-lap finale that will determine the 2018 Slingshot World Championship. The Slingers are also on Friday and Saturday night’s bill on the 1/5-mile bullring known as Selinsgrove Raceway Park, set in the infield of the big track.

Saturday’s 360/358 Sprint Car feature is presented by FK Rod Ends, and the winner of this one will collect $3,000. Joining the 360/358 Sprinters will be the Wayne Subaru World Series 100 for the USAC All Pro SpeedSTRs, a 100-lap grind that will pay the winner a whopping $10,000! The 100-lapper is presented by BusinessLinkPrint.com of Kutztown, PA.

The Super Late Models will stomp n’ steer on Saturday, too, in a $4,000-to-win headliner. And Harley Davidson is supporting the Flat Track Motorcycles on Saturday, as the AMA Pro Single class goes for $750 to win and the AMA Pro Twin bikes battle for a $1,500 winner’s check.




All of the divisions running features on Saturday will qualify on Friday afternoon.

Championship Energy is supporting the 600 Sprint events on the recently widened and banked 1/5-mile Raceway Park oval. The wingless 600’s will compete for $1,000 to win (with Gambler’s Entry Fee) on Friday and Saturday nights.

Spectro Oil, manufactured and marketed by Intercontinental Lubricants Corporation of Brookfield, Connecticut, is spicing up the WSoDR all weekend long, as they hand out more than $1,500 in product to all of the divisions by sponsoring the Spectro Slick Move of the Race Award.
