Modifieds Return Selinsgrove Speedway March 21 for $5,000 to Win

SELINSGROVE, PA – Selinsgrove Speedway will open the 2020 season at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 21, with the highly-anticipated return of the Northeast modifieds in the $5,000-to-win Icebreaker 40!

The Icebreaker will be a combined small and big block, non-sanctioned race offering a $24,625 purse!

Also on the March 21 racing program will be the crate 602 sportsman modifieds in a $1,000-to-win 20-lap feature.

Pit and grandstand gates will open at 11 a.m. with practice laps slated for 1:30 p.m.

The tire rule for the Icebreaker will be the American Racer left-rear 44 or harder compound and right-rear 48 or harder compound. Front tires can be any compound.



Drivers will draw for their starting positions in heat races for both divisions. A redraw will be conducted to determine the first several starting positions in the main events.

Additional rules and details will be posted.

Pre-registration will begin in the next two weeks and will offer teams pit pass and other race incentives. Registration forms will be available on selinsgrovespeedway.com.

Many of the northeast’s top modified teams are expected to converge on the Snyder County half-mile oval for this historic race, which dates back to 2008 but that fell victim to inclement weather in recent years.

Previous dirt modified winners at Selinsgrove Speedway include: Dave Kelly (big block, 1982), Rick Laubauch (big block, 2008), Pat Ward (small block, 2009, 2010), Danny Johnson (big block, 2009, 2011), Matt Shepard (big block, 2010), Jeff Strunk (small block, 2011), Duane Howard (small block, 2012, 2013), Ryan Godown (big block, 2012), and Billy Pauch (big block, 2012).
