Budds Creek, Md., -- After experiencing some nail-biting racing action last weekend, the drivers, crews, and fans, took another week off from the regular racing excitement at Potomac Speedway this Saturday. Instead, on hand was the National Motorcross.

The dirt track racing will resume this coming Saturday night, June 23rd, for the regular show and the Virginia Sprints. Pit gates and grandstand admission open at 5:30 p.m., with racing starting at 7:00 p.m.

The following weekend, June 29th and June 30th is the Potomac Speedway season highlight the 100-lap $5,000 to-win Budweiser Super Late Model Vernon Harris Memorial. It will be the fifth scheduled I.T.S.I. feature of the season. Qualifying will begin on Friday night with time trials for the Budweiser Super Late Models, Bell Motor Company Late Models, Coors Light Pure-Street Stocks, and Potomac Speedway Four-Cylinders.

Along with the time trials, there will be heat races, a dash for starting position and feature events for the Cliff's Heating and Air Conditioning Enduro/Hobby Stocks and the Chesapeake Web Design Bombers. The racing features for the other divisions, along with another feature event for the enduros and bombers, will be ran on Saturday night.

After four I.T.S.I. races, Allen Brannon, who is still looking for his first victory leads the series with a 39-point lead over one-time I.T.S.I. winner Les Hare. Jim Bernheisel is currently third, only three points behind Hare, and with one win to his credit.

Also, still searching for victory lane in fourth place is James Adkins, Jr. Adkins is currently 19 points behind Bernheisel. One-time I.T.S.I. winner and the current Budweiser Super Late Model points leader, Deane Guy currently resides in fifth, 26 points behind Adkins.
