CONCORD, N.C. – As the battle begins to intensify for the coveted WKA Speedway Pavement Series national titles, racers in the northeast have a couple options this weekend as Sandy Hook Speedway in Street, Maryland will be hosting a Pavement Divisional this Saturday, followed by their Super Regional event on Sunday.
With King George Speedway in Virginia already wrapping up its Super Regional last month, many drivers will be converging on the Maryland facility for a crack at the top spot on the podium, thus guaranteeing them a spot in the starting field for their respective classes at the Chapel Hill Raceway Grand Nationals in Great Valley, New York August 10-12
Additionally, the Oakland Valley Raceway Park in Cuddebackville, New York will host the latest round of their divisional program. The scheduled Super Regional is slated for July 29, just a week or so before the Grand National event.
While winners of the respective classes gain an added advantage by virtue of their victory, the door is open to all competitors on the Grand National weekend to come and run against the very best in the country.
Action at Chapel Hill will begin with practice on Friday, culminating with the $500 to win Charlie Hodge/ Joe Moore Memorial Champ Heavy Money Race sponsored by Bonsignore Kart Shoppe. 2nd through 5th will receive $300, $250, $150, and $100 respectively. Anyone wishing to sponsor a lap in the race can contact Joe Hodge at (516) 567-1122. Race Day #1 will provide a full day of action for Animal competitors while Sunday will serve as Flathead Day with championships on the line for all competitors.
