Lock Haven’s Jeffrey Weaver earns 2 racing wins at Clinton County Speedway
The Clinton County version of Ironman — Lock Haven’s Jeffrey Weaver — was victorious in two classes Friday night at Clinton County Speedway, winning his first RaceSaver 305 sprint car feature and the 270 micro sprint feature. He also finished second in the 600 micro sprint feature. The winner of the 600 micro feature was Garrett Bard, who finished second in the 305 RaceSaver sprint car feature
The Speedway returns to racing action with two races this week with a mid-week race to coincide with the Clinton County Fair on Wednesday featuring the 270s in a five hundred to win feature event. The pro stocks, 600s and four cylinders will be part of the four-division show with general admission being $5. Friday, the Speedway will host the RaceSaver sprint cars, pro stocks, 270s, 600s and four cylinders plus power wheels races for kids. Gates will open at 5:15 p.m
At Williams Grove, it was the Danny Dietrich show. He took the lead on lap 18 and held on to pick up his first win of the season and 25th of his career.
In the 25-lap 358 sprint main, Derek Locke sped to victory. The win was the third-generation driver’s first at the facility. Coming up at the Grove is the Billy Kimmel Memorial for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars along with the Civil War super-late model series Friday at 7:30 p.m. The super-late models will compete in their first race of the season at the track as part of the 2020 Civil War Super Late Model Series: North vs South between Williams Grove and Selinsgrove Speedways as presented by RBS Auto & Trailer Sales and Modern Heritage.
Lincoln Speedway did double duty racing Wednesday as David Gravel claimed the $10,000 Drydene 40. On Saturday, it was Danny Dietrich getting back to his winning way after more than a month dry spell. The rain forced the 358 feature to be postponed to a later date. The Hank Gentzler Memorial Manufacturers Appreciation Race presented by Pancho’s Racing Products featuring 410 sprints, 358 sprints and the Vintage Outlaw series action starts at 7:30 p.m.
At Port Royal, persistent rain forced the cancellation of the features of the Living Legends race. It will be made up on Aug. 22 and the ULMS feature will be added to the Butch Renninger Memorial race on Sept. 5.
Selinsgrove Speedway will host a truly historic event Sunday at 7 p.m. when it hosts the USAC Silver Crown Series in the running of the Bill Holland Classic 74th Selinsgrove Speedway anniversary race, paying $8,000 to win with a total purse of $33,000. The USAC Silver Crown appearance at the track will be the first ever in the history of both USAC and Selinsgrove Speedway, taking place as another Slivinski Law Offices Super 7 Series event at the track in 2020.
The special race at Selinsgrove Speedway will serve as the kick off the 50th anniversary season for the USAC Silver Crown Series Champ Dirt Cars, albeit abbreviated, running through October.
The United States Auto Club has only ever sanctioned one other event in the history of USAC and the track, which was a regular USAC sprint event scored by local driver Mitch Smith in 1971.
The Aug. 9 USAC Silver Crown Holland Classic will go 74 laps in distance in honor of Philadelphia’s Holland, who won the very first race ever conducted at the track in 1946.
Also on the racing card will be the USAC East wingless 360 sprints, making the event a totally wingless night of sprint car racing at the historic oval. The USAC East 360s will compete in a 20-lap feature event.
