Patriot Sprint Tour Sets Sights on Selinsgrove this Saturday
Rich Vleck, ROCHESTER, NY, (June 10, 2014)- After three doubleheader weekends, it would seem like a single-race this weekend would be less intense, but when you consider the track, there is surely no let down in action.
This Saturday, the Patriot Sprint Tour makes its inaugural trip to the Selinsgrove Speedway in Central Pennsylvania. The fast ½-mile Snyder County oval is the only track on the 2014 PST Schedule that the tour visits for the first time in its 12-year history.
With $2,571 going to the winner of Saturday’s event, featuring time trials, this event has been circled on the calendar for a host of Patriot regulars, many of whom have made either limited or no starts at Selinsgrove.
Jared Zimbardi continues to command his healthy point advantage, but will look to continue building his resume venturing in to new territories. He leads Paige Polyak in the standings, but it is Steve Collins, the driver third in the standings, who was really psyched-up to hear that the series would invade Selinsgrove. Collins has made multiple successful trips from his Belfast, NY home and hopes this Saturday is no different.
Brad Knab, Dave and Scott Just, Derek Jonathan, all are highly-anticipating running this event, but their level of anticipation comes up short compared to youngsters Parker Evans and Joe Trenca, who feel very comfortable the speeds Selinsgrove provides. George Suprick and Clint Ide, are looking forward to making shorter trips this Saturday.
Selinsgrove is located just off of Rt. 15, with racing getting underway at 7:00 P.M. For more information, visit www.PatriotSprintTour.com.
