MECHANICSBURG, PA – The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will compete in a Yellow Breeches 500 race at Williams Grove Speedway coming up this Friday, May 20 at 7:30 pm.

Still trying to get their 2022 season underway, the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint cars will also be on the racing program.

For the 410 sprints, the Yellow Breeches 500 race will pay $500 to start the 25-lap main event while offering $5,000 to the winner.

After losing a previous Yellow Breeches race to weather, Friday’s race for the 410 sprint cars will be the first of the year to offer a new twist on qualifying.

All Yellow Breeches 500 races during the season will see timed practice laps used to set the heat starting lineups.




Hot lap/qualifying groups for the shows will be established and seeded equally based on each entered drivers season earning’s average to date.

And all cars in a group will face off against the same opponents in their respective heat races.

An invert of the driver’s times after hot laps will be used to set the heat starting grids.

And then the top two or three heat finishers, based on the total number of heats contested, will be placed into the front starting spots of the night’s main event again handicapped onto the grid based on each driver’s financial earning’s average to date.

The 358 sprints will compete in a 20-lap main after qualifying heat races.

Adult general admission is set at just $15 with youth ages 13-20 admitted for just $10 while kids ages 12 and under are always admitted for FREE at Williams Grove Speedway.

Brent Marks recently became the first sprint car driver to repeat a trip to victory lane at the track in 2022 when he scored the World of Outlaws Morgan Cup on May 14.

Danny Dietrich is the current Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint car point leader although he is still seeking his first win of the season at the oval.

Williams Grove Speedway will close out May and celebrate the Memorial Day holiday weekend in a big way on Friday, May 27 when the oval hosts the All Star Circuit of Champions Randy Wolfe Tribute Race paying $10,000 to win!

The event will honor the former Williams Grove racer with a pre-race meet and greet and live broadcast in the infield to include special guest personalities from throughout Wolfe’s career.
