O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions Set to Visit Central PA

The O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions will return to Central PA again this week for a 3 day swing through Posse country to face some of the toughest local competition in the country. One of the toughest, Lance Dewease, is leading the All Star points chase and is looking to use his home turf to put some distance between him and the rest of the traveling group before heading into Ohio Speedweek at the end of June.

The first of the three stops will be at the world famous Williams Grove Speedway on Friday June 13th where the speeds are fast, the fans are frenzied, and the competition is fierce. Nowhere else in the country will you find the local drivers as loved and the invaders hated as much as at "The Grove" making it one of the tracks each season where a good finish is coveted by any outsider who visits there. Posse driver Mike Erdley picked up the All Star win in 2007.

On Saturday June 14th, the cars and stars will travel to Lincoln Speedway where the All Stars and Posse will do battle for round two of the weekend's events. Fred Rahmer picked up the win the last time the All Stars visited the speedway, marking his 151st victory at the track and setting off a celebration of family, friends, and fans that was nothing short of spectacular.

The series will wrap things up with a stop at "The Big Track" on Sunday June 15th in Clearfield, PA. This will be the first visit to Central PA Speedway for the All Stars and hopefully several of the Central PA teams will follow and join in for a shot at the All Star loot. The event was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but it was moved to Sunday to help reduce travel expenses for the teams.
