Big Mav 305 Classic at Knox Sunday Night

MARBLE, PA-Threatening weather forced the cancellation of the Big Mav Classic for the Allegheny Sprint 305 Tour on Sunday, July 24th.  However, the race has been rescheduled for Sunday, July 31st at Knox Raceway.  Night two of the classic was also cancelled due to a family emergency at Michaels Mercer Raceway and will be made up on Saturday night, July 30th.  So, 305 Sprint Car drivers will have a two-day race weekend coming up this weekend, weather permitting.  The Twin State Racing Club event has been postponed at this time for Knox Raceway.

Along with the Big Mav Classis the Sunday night racing card will feature the RUSH Wingless Sprint Cars, 270cc Micro Sprints and the Jr. Sprints.  The Mending Hope Equine Rescue will also have a display table behind the grandstands and hope to raise some money for their horse rescue organization.  Gates will open at 4:00 pm, hot laps at 5:30pm. with racing starting at 6pm.  

Coming up then on Sunday, August 21st will be the first of two visits by the 410 Sprint Cars.  These powerful machines will compete for a 25-lap event and local favorites should be in attendance including AJ Flick, Carl Bowser, Jack Sodeman, Jr. and many more.  Also racing that evening will be the RUSH Wingless Sprints, the Penn-Ohio Pro Stocks and the Jr. Sprints.  The 410 Sprints will return on September 11th for the final circle track event in 2022 along with the RUSH Wingless Sprints and Penn-Ohio Pro Stocks.  Starting times for both of these events will take place at 6pm.

An additional program has been added to the activities at Knox Raceway which will be a second Demolition Derby on October 1st produced by Grandstand Productions.  More information on this event will be forthcoming.
