GEORGETOWN, DE – A fan-pleasing doubleheader of Modifieds and Sprint Cars is next up on the agenda for Georgetown Speedway.
‘Wing Night’ will feature the potent Capitol Renegade United Racing Club (URC) 360 Sprint Cars plus the L&J Sheet Metal Modifieds and a full array of stock car racing on Friday, September 13 at the Sussex County half-mile oval.
Not only does this event mark the only URC event of the season at Georgetown, it is also a special night for the club. The URC membership has organized “Kids Night” festivities for the Georgetown fans!
Kids will be treated to Bike Giveaways, goodie bags, an appearance by Rita’s Italian Ice of Bethany Beach, face painting, games and a driver autograph session! This will take place prior to the start of racing in the midway area behind the grandstands.
The URC competitors will battle in qualifying races and a 25-lap feature. Josh Weller of Mertztown, Pa., was the winner of last year’s URC appearance at Georgetown.
L&J Sheet Metal Modifieds return for their fifth appearance of the season with a 25-lap main paying $3,000 to the winner, $500 for 10th and $250 to take the green flag.
