MECHANICSBURG, PA – The Champion Racing Oil World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Series Summer Nationals is this week at Williams Grove Speedway, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 22 and 23 at 7:30 pm.
The outlaws sprint cars will invade Williams Grove Speedway for the two-day summer stand to battle the Pennsylvania Posse sprint car stars for what will be the second match-up of the 2022 season.
The modern-day, consecutive-year history of the Summer Nationals dates back to 2002 when the show was a three-day event with Danny Lasoski, Joey Saldana and Greg Hodnett taking wins.
However events dubbed “Summer Nationals” were first contested at the oval back in 1972 with Jan Opperman and Bobbie Adamson recorded as the victors.
Both nights of this year’s Summer Nationals shows will include full programs of time trials, heats and feature events.
The July 22 outlaws-posse match will feature a 25-lap main paying $10,000 to win and $1,000 to start while the July 23 Saturday finale Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals feature will offer $20,000 to the winner while paying $1,100 to start.
Last year, Sheldon Haudenschild and Brent Marks split Summer Nationals winning laurels with Marks scoring the big 20K in the Saturday finale.
California’s Brad Sweet is the current outlaws point leader over Ohio’s Haudenschild.
Sweet has just one win on the season to date while Haudenschild has posted eight.
Californian Carson Macedo, now third in outlaws points, seems to have set himself up as the driver most consistently in the hunt for a win on any given night this year however.
At Williams Grove, both Marks and Anthony Macri seem to be the fastest drivers this year.
Myerstown’s Marks has scored a hat trick of only big wins for himself at the track this season, taking the Tommy Classic in April, the Mitch Smiith Memorial in early July and outlaws win in May.
And, having just scored the $100,000 Historical Big One and the $175,000 Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway, Marks is by far the highest dollar earner in sprint car racing anywhere this season.
Macri of Dillsburg is the winningest driver of the season anywhere across the nation.
With 16 overall wins on the year, he’s taken three at Williams Grove with impressive style.
