KING OF THE CAN WEEKEND SET AT PENN CAN SPEEDWAY
Susquehanna, PA…The biggest race weekend of the year is on schedule at Penn Can Speedway on Saturday and Sunday September 15th and 16th. The annual “King of the Can” weekend will feature two big nights of racing at the Susquehanna County oval. Eight different feature events showcasing the best racers in the area have been scheduled for the two day event.
Saturday racing begins with five big divisions of racing. The BRC Late Model Series sponsored by Stone Excavating will be in action in the Topless 25. This popular event will be the last race of the series. Joining the late models will be the Central New York Mini Sprints making their second appearance of the 2007 season at Penn Can Speedway. They will be competing in a twenty lap event paying the winner a handsome $1000. The Trackside Products Tour will make another start at Penn Can. The stars of super/pro stock racing will converge on Penn Can competing in qualifying heats and a big twenty five lap feature event paying the winner $450. (Based on 22 cars)
Also racing at the fast three eighth mile oval will be the CRSA Sprint Cars. This will make the third appearance for the 305 sprint car group. Each time they compete the fields have been growing and the action has been exciting.
The final event of the evening will be the King of the Can Nationals for the front wheel drive four cylinder class. They will be competing in qualifying heats leading up to the Four Cylinder National 35 lap feature event. This should draw an excellent field of four cylinders competing for the $250 top prize.
Sunday the “King of the Can” modifieds will be the feature event. This Race of Champions event will include the best racers Penn Can Speedway has to offer challenged by the touring stars of the ROC Series. The modified tour event will include qualifying events along with a big one hundred lap main event. New for the 2007 season will be a halfway fuel stop. After running this event the last two seasons, management felt that having a fuel stop would open the field to more cars running the Pennsylvania circuit that might not have the mileage to go the entire 100 laps. All laps will now be run under the green flag. The companion Race of Champions Sportsman Tour will also be in competition Friday. They will also compete in qualifying events along with a forty lap feature.
The pure stocks will be racing Sunday in the King of the Can Pure Stock special. Drivers from area speedways are invited to Penn Can Sunday to try and beat the stellar PCS pure stocks. The top three drivers in points at Thunder Mountain, Skyline, and Five Mile point will be given spots in the feature event if they fail to qualify in their heat races. The top ten in Penn Can points are also guaranteed. The twenty five lap feature event will pay the winner $400 along with lap money along the way. This should attract the best area pure stock racers to Penn Can Speedway.
The IMCA modifieds originally scheduled for the Sunday show have been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts.
This huge weekend special is sponsored by Don’s Automotive Mall and Gary’s U-Pull-It of Binghamton.
