GEORGETOWN, DE – Two headline divisions are on the docket when racing returns to Georgetown Speedway on Friday, July 21.
The “fan-favorite” Sprint Car-Modified combination is set to tackle the historic half-mile clay oval for the season’s second Friday night program. The lightning-quick 360 Sprint Cars of the United Racing Club (URC) make their only 2017 appearance at Georgetown, sharing the spotlight with big-block/small-block Modifieds in a $2,500-to-win, 25-lap main event.
The evening has also been designated as ‘Youth Night’ at the speedway. All those under the age of 12 will be admitted into the grandstand free of charge!
A Bicycle Giveaway is also on the evening’s agenda.
Legendary Bobby Wilkins, a driver who represented the First State by racing and winning across the Northeast, will be recognized during the night, as well.
Joining the URC/Modified doubleheader are the L&J Sheet Metal Crate 602 Sportsman and features-only for Southern Delaware Vintage Stock Cars, Little Lincolns, Delmarva Chargers and Delaware Super Trucks.
Blue Hen Dispose-All, based in Millsboro, Del., serves as the night’s presenting sponsor.
Gates will unlock at 4 p.m. in the pit area and 5 p.m. in the grandstands. Hot laps are scheduled for 6:20 p.m., with racing to follow at 7:15 p.m.
