The excitement from 2016’s karting events will continue on in 2017. Three events are already scheduled at Speedway 94 in Hanover, Pennsylvania for next year, all of which will also serve as fundraisers.
This year, PA Sprint Car Promotions and PAPosseRacing.com have partnered with the iconic Beerhill Gang to raise money for the Fighting Angels Foundation, Kick-It, and the York County Racing Club. “It’s certainly an honor to put on three events for these charities. Kick-It In Karts was such a huge success last year, and the fans wanted more. So, we listened to them,” Mike Baker, one of the event coordinators, explains.
On May 18, the first event of 2017 will kick off with the Keystone Throwdown. This event will benefit the Fighting Angels Foundation, a fantastic foundation that raises awareness for childhood Angelman Syndrome (AS). The top sprint car drivers in the region, including some World of Outlaw Craftsman Sprint Car drivers, will be in competition. In the event of Lincoln Speedway postponing the Gettysburg Clash to Thursday night, the Keystone Throwdown will move to Saturday, May 20th.
Kick-It In Karts will return for the second annual running on Thursday, July 20th.. Last year, over 600 spectators and 80 drivers attended the event. A Speedway 94 regular, Jared Goulden, picked up the inaugural checkered flag. This event was ran with drivers from multiple classes and states, including Maryland’s Jeff Shepard. There was also three drivers from Australia in attendance, including the ever-popular James McFadden. Fans and drivers came together and helped raise over $2,000 for the Kick-It foundation. The event will have a Saturday, July 22nd rain date.
Things will get spooky near the end of the season with a special "Friday, the 13th" edition of Dirt Champions in October. The event will recognize any champions that have been extended an invitation. Again for 2017, this event will benefit the York County Racing Club’s Injured Drivers Fund. This year will include a special "Champions Showdown" between all of the invited drivers. Both winners of the Keystone Throwdown and Kick-It In Karts will be extended invitations to race in this event. If inclement weather is in the area for the event, it will be moved to Sunday, October 15th.
