Newberrytown, PA (December 6, 2013) – The doors of the 3-day Central PA Dirt Trackin' Show will swing open on Friday, January 24, 2014 to many race fans, drivers and supporters of local short track racing in the Central Pennsylvania area.

Todd and Rhonda Fisher, owners of the Susquehanna Speedway Park, have purchased the rights and assets of the wintertime racecar show from Larry Miller of Mechanicsburg. The planning and organizing of the show has now been set in full motion as the racing seasons of Central PA have come to an end.
We are looking for race car drivers in the Mechanicsburg area That would like to try out a winter hobby and support our tracks special friends program and our clubs goal of becoming a charity for special needs adults and children. Just message us or go to our web site and use contact info to find out more information..
WE are adding new classes of sprint cars to our program. This will let our racers use old sprints that don't handle well with the current falcon type motor. Our new classes will use the slick 7 mini brute motor which has less torque and are cheaper. The 360 rules are on our web site and the wingless sprints rules will be posted shortly. For our wingless sprints we set the car up with 410 winged sprint tire sizes to save tire costs.
