Tri-City Raceway Park to Try Again Sunday

FRANKLIN, PA- Tri-City Raceway Park will try again on Sunday, August 20, with a Sunday Thunder program after suffering two consecutive cancellations due to adverse weather.

This week’s events will be presented by the Moose Club and the show will include the Kids Back to School Night and Bike Races for the younger set (helmets required). Plus, for the racers, there will be added money on the line for the Diehl Chevrolet 410 Sprints and the 4 Your Car Connection Four Cylinder Mini Stocks.

The action will be intense as close points battles exist in all of the divisions, and the championships will be resolved on the track and in the heat of competition.

Flick and Ayden Cipriano from their closest rivals in the Diehl Chevrolet 410 Sprints and Pitt Stop Pub 358 Modifieds, respectively. But, the narrowest margin, only three counters, exists in the 4 Your Car Connection Four Cylinder Mini Stocks.
