YORK HAVEN, PA – The largest paying race of the season for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series fueled by VP will invade Susquehanna Speedway on Sunday night, July 30 as part of the 16th annual York County Nationals.
In what will be the lone modified race of the season on the red clay of Susquehanna, all of the top modified racers in the East are expected to be in competition chasing the big $10,000 payday that will await the winner of the 50-lap feature. While the event is super rich for the winner, tenth place will pay $1,000 with $400 just to start the main.
“The modifieds have such a rich history at Susquehanna Speedway over the years and we wanted to provide these guys with a major paying race with the Short Track Series and build a major event here,” stated Susquehanna Speedway General Manager Kolten Gouse.
In the event’s debut at Susquehanna last season, Ryan Godown’s open small block modified scored the feature win in what produced some of the best racing of the season at the York Haven oval.
The event will be the fifth race of the Short Track Super Series Velocita-USA South Region series that will award its season-ending champion a cool $10,000.
The ServiceMaster Clean Central PA Legends are also on the July 30 racing card that will see the winner of the feature take home a $500 top prize.
Adult general admission will be $25, Seniors Ages 60 & over and Students ages 13-17 will be $15 while Kids under 12 admitted Free.
Pits will open at 3PM with Grandstands opening at 4PM. Racing will begin at 7PM.
