Path Valley Karters Prepare for State Title Races
Spring Run, PA_ Path Valley pits were full as infrequent kart racers gathered to practice for next Sunday's state championship PDKS race.
One of the thrills of the year came to Colton Bear when in a heat race he spun sideways in turn three and Ryan Laye in #151 went airborne three feet high over him. Bear reportedly had rub marks on his helmet, but both continued in the heat and Bear later took second in the Jr. Sportsman I feature.
Among the visitors, Ryan Lower of State College won a fierce Extra-Heavy race ahead of Chuck Bowers and Miles Burd. Lower's father, Steve, also raced in the Heavy class.
In a tribute to family racing, Al 'Bundy' Lyter won in the Heavy class while his daughter, Amber, of Landisburg, won the Fox's Pizza Lites feature. Weekly Path Valley racers won most of the features, and Dane Delancey of Port Royal continued to dominate the four-wheeler racing.
Next Saturday Path Valley hosts a regular points race for karts and quads, with gates open at 10 a.m. The following day, Sept. 12, Gates open at 7 a.m. for the PDKS races.
The Path Valley Speedway Park is located in Spring Run PA a mile north on PA Route 641 from the intersection with PA Route 75, halfway between Port Royal and Hagerstown. It is five miles east from the Willow Hill Exit 14 of the PA Turnpike. The new phone number at the track is 717-349-7111.
