GEORGETOWN, DE – “The superspeedway of short tracks” Georgetown Speedway fires back to life after more than a month of inactivity on Friday, July 24.
Blue Hen Dispose-All presents a fan-pleasing program headlined by the L&J Sheet Metal Modifieds and the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars.
The L&J Sheet Metal Modifieds, racing for a $3,000 winner’s share, will compete for 25 laps around the spacious half-mile track, with the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars also taking part in a 25-lap main.
After its early March Melvin L. Joseph Memorial opener, the high-banked Georgetown oval was completely resurfaced with new clay. On June 13, the speedway reopened with multi-groove racing and limited tire wear.
Anticipation has been building for more than a month and the action returns on the 24th.
L&J Sheet Metal Modifieds continue their chase for the 2020 Sunoco Championship Series point championship at Georgetown. Danny Bouc is currently the point leader.
For the wingless USAC East Coast Sprint Cars, the July 24 visit marks the series’ second-ever visit to the First State facility.
Also on the program are the RUSH Late Models ($1,000 to win), Southern Delaware Vintage Stock Cars, Little Lincolns, Delmarva Chargers and Delaware Super Trucks.
