MINERSVILLE, PA – Trying hard to get the track’s season opener in the books, Big Diamond Speedway has made the decision to use this Sunday April 28th as a rain date in case Mother Nature decides not to play nice again this Friday.
If Friday night is rained out the complete program scheduled for this week will take place on Sunday as part of Schaeffer’s Motorsports night. The Insinger Performance modifeds will be running a $4000 to win 30-lap main event. The USS Achey sportsman will also run for some extra cash with a 20-lap $1000 to win main event. Filling out the night will be the Eash’s Towing and Salvage Street Stocks and the Savage 61 Road Runners. As a bonus for the street stocks, Don Murphy will be sponsoring the hard charger award each week the division competes.
Gates will open on Friday at 5:00pm with warmups getting underway at 7:15pm. Racing will begin at 7:45pm. If Sunday’s rain date must be utilized, gates will open at 1:00pm with racing getting underway at 4:00pm.
General admission for this Friday or Sunday is $20. Kids 10 & under and active military with valid ID are admitted free of charge.
The much anticipated “Money in the Mountains” race sponsored by Fire Management Control of Pennsylvania will now be scheduled to take place on Friday night May 3rd. This year’s MITM race will feature a $10,000 winner’s share and will be run under the Short Track Super Series rules (No Sail Panels).
