Ultimate Northeast Super Late Model Series Visits Selinsgrove Saturday

SELINSGROVE, PA – For fans of dirt track stock car racing, this Saturday, June 9, at Selinsgrove Speedway will be a must-see show!

For the first time at Selinsgrove, the Ultimate Northeast Super Late Model Series will sanction the 30-lap Showdown on Sand Hill sponsored by Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center. The super late model race will pay $3,000 to win, $1,500 to finish second, $1,000 for third, and $400 to start out of the $16,000-plus purse.

Rules, procedures, and teching will fall under the Ultimate Northeast SLMS guidelines. Time trials, heat races, and a B-Main will be the tentative qualifying format for the super late models.

A past late model event at the track, the Showdown on Sand Hill is being brought back for 2018 in place of the disbanded Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek Series race. Previous Showdown on Sand Hill winners include Tim McCreadie (2014) and Gregg Satterlee (2013). The race’s name came about from the speedway’s physical address of 47 Sand Hill Road.

Only two super late model races have been completed to date this season due to weather-related cancellations. Bryan Bernheisel of Lebanon is undefeated going into this weekend’s race.


Also making its debut at the Snyder County oval this weekend will be the Mason Dixon Shootout Series for limited late models in a 20-lap main event paying $1,000 to win and $125 to start.

The pro stocks will compete in a 15-lap main event paying $400 to win and the roadrunners in a 12-lap race paying $300 to win. The pro stocks will also run a 15-lap makeup feature from May 5.

Pit gates will open at 4 p.m. with grandstand gates at 5 p.m. this Saturday.

Selinsgrove Raceway Park, the one-fifth mile track located inside of Selinsgrove Speedway’s half-mile oval, will present a complete program of go kart racing at 7 p.m. this Friday, June 8. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m.
