ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. (July 13, 2015) – As a tribute to this region’s colorful history the event, driving greats from the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s will strap into 410 Sprint Cars one more time when Fred Rahmer Promotions and Apple Chevrolet of York, PA present the “Legends of Central Pennsylvania” at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA. The event, which takes place on Wednesday, August 26 (raindate: August 27), will include the legends, an invitation only $10,000 winner-takes-all shoot out with a very unique format and the 358 sprint cars.
“We’ve been able to put together a great list of retired drivers, they’re legends in this sport and more importantly they are my heroes,” said event organizer Fred Rahmer. “I’ve raced with them and I’ve watched them do amazing things in race cars. It’s a privilege to see them behind the wheel again.”
With more than 1500 combined Pennsylvania feature event wins the current list of committed drivers includes: Doug Wolfgang, Steve Stambaugh, Lynn Paxton, Keith Kauffman, Cris Eash, Kenny Adams, Steve Smith Sr., Billy Pauch, Todd Shaffer, Steve Siegel and a host of others.
The evening of nostalgia will feature interviews and anecdotes with yesterday’s star drivers, led by Motor Racing Network radio personality Steve Post.
This is no exhibition race – the Legends will compete in a full program of events including heat races and a 20 lap feature in modern 410 Sprint Cars — complete with graphics similar to the machines they once made famous.
The action doesn’t stop there – six of the nation’s top sprint car stars will be invited to participate in a $10,000 winner-takes-all Shootout. The unique format will consist of six 5-lap events, each driver will be given the opportunity to start in each of the starting positions with points offered in each event.
