Speedweek to kick off this Wednesday!
The time has come for the return of Speedweek for the Slingshots. Speedweek suffered a Covid cancelation in 2020, but the five race mini series for the All Star Slingshots will feature competition for five straight nights presented by Briggs and Stratton in central Pennsylvania this week!
The Junior Slingshots will participate in three of the five events starting Wednesday at Shellahmmer Dirt Track and continuing to Action Track USA and Linda’s Speedway Friday.
Speedweek will kick off in Leesport, Pa at Shellhammer Dirt Track on Wingless Wednesday August 11.
A special event at Kutztown’s Championship Energy Action Track USA during the fair week will mark the Thursday night stop of the series on August 12.
Linda’s Speedway in Jonestown has the halfway point race on Friday night. The home of the World Championship Weekend will host the August 13th race.
The weekend racing starts at Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway in Brickerville with the Saturday Aug 14th event.
The Speedweek finale sees the series return to Action Track USA for Sunday Aug 15.
Speedweek will offer cash prize money to the top three finishers as well as awards and give away items at the end of the week including a swing arm and front axles.
Each night a name will be drawn for a $20 gas card for the teams that have competed in each of the events.
A race ready Slingshot can be bought from Speedway Entertainment for $8,900 and roll onto the race track that day! If you are interested in breaking into the racing world, no matter your age, you can call Speedway Ent for more details at 717-866-7450 or visit SpeedwayEnt.com for more information.
