Take 2: Georgetown Speedway Returns to Action Friday, June 24


Delaware State Sportsmen’s Association Night – featuring the return of the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series to Georgetown Speedway – has been rescheduled for Friday, June 24.

The event and its entirety has been moved to June 24, including the following:

  • J.W. Brown Logging Modifieds – 25 laps, $3,000 To Win
  • First State Chevrolet RUSH Late Models – 20 Laps, $1,000 to Win
  • Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series
  • Southern Delaware Vintage Stocks Cars
  • Little Lincolns
  • Delaware Super Trucks
  • Delmarva Chargers

For RUSH Late Model competitors, 25 points will be awarded to drivers competing at Georgetown or in the ‘Firecracker’ weekend at Lernerville (Pa.) Speedway.

Pit Gates Open: 4 p.m. – Grandstand Gates Open: 5 p.m. – Hot Laps: 6:45 p.m. – Racing: 7:30 p.m.
