Rain cancels Friday’s racing event at Clinton County Speedway

MILL HALL — Clinton County Speedway officials had to cancel the Friday racing event as a storm came across the fairgrounds soaking the speedway surface. Rain check will be honored for the next three races. The speedway will be closed on Friday, July 23, for a “racers summer vacation.”

During this time, crews will continue to make improvements to the speedway including the installation of new fencing.

The next event schedule will be on July 30 with a five-division show featuring the Laurel Highlands RaceSaver sprint cars, the pro stocks, the 270 micro sprints, the 600 micro sprints and the four cylinders. The four cylinders will also run the remainder of an event that was curfewed out a few weeks ago with two laps complete.

The Speedway is also preparing for major events in the month of August. The annual Clinton County Fair will feature two race events. On Wednesday, August 4, the 270 and 600 micro sprints will compete in $500 to win events. In addition, the pro stock and four cylinders will be in action.

On Friday, August 6, a kids night featuring a $500 cash and candy scramble for kids 12 and under will be presented. Racing will be the limited late models pro stocks, 270 micro sprints, 600 micro sprints and four cylinders.

The Laurel Highlands RaceSaver sprint cars will be back for racing on Friday, August 13, with the pro stocks, 270 micro sprints, 600 micro sprints and four cylinders.

This is the first race of a two race weekend.

On Saturday, August 14, the 410 sprint cars will make their first appearance in over a decade. Several drivers from central and western Pennsylvania as well as New York have expressed an interest in this special event that will also include the pro stocks and four cylinders.

“This is the first time that the 410 sprint cars have been at Clinton County for more than 10 years,” says Race Promoter Jason McCahan. “The fans are excited for this show, and we hope to make it an annual event.”
