SELINSGROVE, PA – Selinsgrove Ford will be the title sponsor of a huge Labor Day weekend racing program at Selinsgrove Speedway Sunday, Sept. 5, at 7 p.m. featuring $5,000-to-win 30-lap features for 410 sprint cars and super late models plus a $500-to-win 12-lap roadrunner race.
With track gates opening at 4 p.m., there will be plenty of pre-race festivities for fans to enjoy. The classic rock band Rapid Run will perform a concert on the speedway grounds starting at 3 p.m., and Big Foot Country Radio will be on-site doing a live remote 4-6 p.m.
Mr. Sharpie, Selinsgrove Ford’s mascot, will be giving away 100 t-shirts and hats. A cornhole tournament is being coordinated, and fans can expect to see “wheel barrow races” on the frontstretch at intermission sponsored by B&R Lawn Care.
Fans can also play the return of the speedway’s “Pick 5 Contest” for the 410 sprint car and super late model features for a chance to win $50.
The winner of the 410 sprint car feature will earn a guaranteed starting spot in the Sept. 25 Jim Nace Memorial 39th Annual National Open. The super late model portion of the program will be sanctioned by the United Late Model Series (ULMS).
The main events for both the 410 sprint cars and super late models will carry purses of nearly $20,000, with $400 offered just to start the races.
The Sept. 5 races for the super late models and roadrunners will be the divisions’ final appearances of 2021 at the track. The Lelands.com 410 sprint cars and PASS/IMCA 305 sprint cars will close out the speedway’s historic 75th anniversary racing season on Sept. 25.
For fans who can’t attend in-person, the race will be available to purchase as a live PPV event on sprintcarunlimited.tv.
SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY: A Motorsports Tradition for Generations
Selinsgrove Speedway’s grand motorsports tradition began July 20, 1946, when Bill Holland of Philadelphia won the first race. Since that historic day, Holland went on to win the 1949 Indy 500, and many of motorsports’ most famous drivers have turned laps at the iconic half-mile dirt track designed by legendary Hollywood stuntman and race car driver Joie Chitwood. The speedway, celebrating its momentous 75th anniversary in 2021, will continue its legacy of rip-roaring open wheel and stock car racing this season and for future generations!
