SPRINTS AND SUPER SPORTSMAN CARS RETURN THIS WEEK

MECHANICSBURG PA-- Sprint car racing returns to Williams Grove Speedway this Friday night, September 18. The super sportsman cars will also be on the card and the first heat is scheduled to start at 8:00.

After a week's vacation from Williams Grove the sprint car teams return with just a few weeks remaining to decide the Cindy Rowe Auto Glass point champion for 1998. Fred Rahmer has been leading the point race since opening day, but in recent weeks four-time titlist Don Kreitz Jr has been gaining ground.

Kreitz took undisputed possession of second place in the standings from Lance Dewease on September 4 and has been looking like the driver who dominated Williams Grove during the first four years of the decade.

The Cindy Rowe Auto Glass championship will be worth $15,000 to the winning team. The champion will be crowned at the awards banquet at the Embers in Carlisle on October 31.

The sportsman cars will be making their final appearance of the season on Friday and another large field is expected. Steve Wilbur, Frankie Herr and Mark Smith have won the three sportsman features run at the Grove this year.

The National Open for sprint cars, sanctioned by the World of Outlaws, is a two day event scheduled for October 2-3. The rain date for the October 3 program is Sunday, October 4.
