SLATED FOR SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, AT SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Following the rained out events at Selinsgrove and Utica Rome Speedways that were a part of the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Crown Weekend for 360 sprint cars July 30-31, Selinsgrove Speedway and Mach 1 Chassis officials announced a revamped Open paying $4,000 to win will be run on Saturday, Aug. 20, at the Snyder County half-mile oval.
“The 360 sprint car teams have shown a lot of support and put on great racing all season long,” said speedway general manager Steve Inch. “Working with Brian Scandle and Mark Smith at Mach 1 Chassis, we put together a revamped ‘Double Your Money’ Open for our headline open wheel division on August 20 since a suitable date wasn’t available to reschedule the original race with ESS and URC.”
The 30-lap 360 sprint car feature on Aug. 20 will pay $4,000 to win and $400 to start out of a $20,500 purse, which is double what a regular weekly purse is for the division. The rain date, if needed, will be Saturday, Aug. 27, the final points race of the season.
The super late models, pro stocks, and roadrunners will also be on the racing card. Track gates will open at 5:30 p.m. with racing at 7:30 p.m.

The roundtable, a popular presentation on various automotive racing history, allows fans of the sport the opportunity to learn about the colorful history of automobile racing.
This month the roundtable discussion will involve Lincoln Speedway. The historic Abbottstown oval opened in 1953 under the guidance of Hilly Rife.

MITCH POWERS TO FIRST PRO STOCK VICTORY OF SEASON; LATE MODEL MAKEUP FEATURE ADDED TO MAY 7 “PACK THE TRACK”
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – On the night of the 36th annual Jack Gunn Memorial there were two races going on at Selinsgrove Speedway. One race was on the track and the other was against mother nature and an impending storm Saturday evening.
Although the racing was fast paced all night and moved along quickly, mother nature still got the best of the 30-lap Gunn Memorial. The race was past halfway and considered complete on lap 18 with Mark Smith of Sunbury declared the winner for the second year in a row in the $2,200-to-win event. Brad Mitch of McClure also grabbed a Pro Stock win in the division’s 15-lap main before the rains came.
Robbie Stillwagon of Burlington, N.J., started the night off with the Fast Tees Fast Time Award (17.499) over the 28-car field for the Newville Family of Companies 360 Sprint Cars which were joined by the United Racing Club.
Rains hit before the Jeff’s Auto Body & Recycling Center Super Late Model feature was held. The makeup feature will be run during the May 7 “Pack the Track” night. Chad Hollenbeck, Tony Adams, and Coleby Frye won the heat races for the stout 27-car Late Model field.
The Roadrunner feature was also postponed to a later date to be announced.
This coming Saturday, May 7, will be the annual PEPSI “Pack the Track” night featuring $5 General Admission for all adults and students. Kids 11 years of age and younger will be admitted FREE. The May 7 racing card will include a full program of 360 Sprint Cars, Pro Stocks, Roadrunners and two late model features. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m.
Once heat races and a B-main were completed the Sprint Car feature line up was set with Mark Smith bringing the field to the green flag as the defending winner of the race. A strong start for fourth-place starter Josh Weller shot him into the race lead. A lap six caution flag gave Smith a chance to regroup and take a shot to regain the top spot. By the time the field returned to the flag stand for lap seven Smith was again showing the way while being chased by Weller.
On lap 12 Smith began to work into lapped traffic and that allowed Weller to begin to close up the gap along with TJ Stutts. Stutts was all over Weller when the yellow flag flew again on lap 17 for Curt Michael slowing with a flat tire. The yellow was good for Smith again giving him the open track.
Stutts was on Weller when the green flew again allowing Smith to get away a little bit before the yellow was displayed for the final time. Jim Shuster was slowing on the backstretch as the rain began to fall on the speedway. Drivers gave officials the sign that the racing surface was not what it needed to be for them to compete any further and they were sent to the pits and the race was called official soon after.
The win is Smith’s 16th career victory at the speedway in 358-360 Sprint Car racing and his seventh in a URC sanctioned event at the track dating back to 2012. Weller came home in second followed by Stutts, Ryan Kissinger from the 13th starting spot, and Robbie Stillwagon. Jason Shultz, Cody Keller, Nate Snyder, Ed Aiken, and John Braim were the top ten in the rain-shortened event.
Joe Trenca, Josh Weller, Tj Stutts won the heat races with Colby Womer winning the B main.
Brad Mitch was on a mission to grab his 20th career Selinsgrove Speedway victory and he did just that in the A&A Auto Stores Pro Stock feature event. Mitch led early over opening night winner Andrew Shoop before Shoop went pitside with an issue. Kurt Wray became the runner up and put a ton of pressure on Mitch before he too had an issue that sidelined his car.
Brandon Moser kept Mitch honest the rest of the race by staying on his rear bumper, but was not able to complete the pass and had to settle for second. Matt Wilson, Curtis Lawton, and Jeff Ceballo rounded out the top five. Mitch and Shoop won heat races for the Pro Stocks.
