SARVER, PA – This Friday, May 20, Lernerville Speedway welcomes the BRP Modified Tour for their 2022 season opener! Joining the BRP Big Blocks are the weekly Fab4 Revved Up with Marburger Farm Dairy divisions of the Peoples Natural Gas Sprints and the Millerstown Pic-A-Part Pro Stocks. The Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Late Models are also on the card as the Precise Racing Products Late Models are off this week.

The BRP Tour heads into their 25th Anniversary season with Chad Brachman, of Sanborn, NY as their two-time and defending champion. Friday will be the 26th total BRP appearance at ‘The Action Track’ and 8-time Diehl Automotive Big Block Modified Champion and 3-time BRP Champion, Brian Swartzlander leads the way with six BRP wins at Lernerville. Diehl Modified regulars will be aiming to knock off the BRP travelers led by 2021 track champion, Jeremiah Shingledecker and Brad Rapp who are tied atop the 2022 point standings. Other weekly Fab4 regulars including last week’s winner Dave Murdick, Rex King, Jr., Colton Walters, Garrett Krummert, Chas Wolbert and others will be on hand to defend their turf.

The RUSH Late Models are competing for a special incentive, a guaranteed starting spot for the $20,000 to-win ‘Bill Emig Memorial’ to be held during the ‘Big River Steel Firecracker 100’ weekend with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. The guaranteed spot will go to the highest finishing driver to not qualify for the ‘Bill Emig Memorial’ during the June 23-24-25 ‘Firecracker’ weekend.

A.J. Flick holds a slim 12-point lead in the Peoples Sprint point standings over last week’s winner Sye Lynch heading into this week’s program. Brandon Matus sits third followed by Carl Bowser and Jack Sodeman, Jr., who are all within 20 points of the top spot. Tyler Dietz, who owns two Millerstown Pro Stocks wins on the season is 11 points up on second place Chris Schneider in the chase for the championship. Todd Weldon, Mike Bordt and Brett McDonald round out the top-five in Pro Stock points.
