Spring Run, PA -- Overnight rain lasting until 8:30 a.m. has forced Path Valley Speedway Park to postpone the all-sprint Fall Sprint National schedule for Labor Day Monday. The entire 30-lap feature program for the PA 305 Sprints, 600cc sprints and 270cc sprints will be rescheduled.

^ÓWe all needed the steady soaking rain, but it left the track so wet we had no chance of getting the racing surface prepared in time, and for our biggest sprint event of the season we need our usual excellent racing surface,^Ô senior race director John Winsett Sr. explained.

The race will be rescheduled after consulting with the sponsors on a date that does not conflict with other major fall racing events. The 30-lap A-main features pay $500 to win plus sponsored bonuses and trophies for first through third from Rick Mayberry of Rick^Òs Car Clean. Additional sponsors include Hyper Chassis, Keen^Òs Fabrication and Speed Equipment, Eagle Evergreens and Taggart Homes Inc.

The race will feature electronic timing and scoring with feature lineups from time trials, and an added attraction will be a wingless fun feature for the 270cc sprints. Path Valley rules apply to all entries. This is not an "Outlaw" race for any 305 Sprint or micro.

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 for promoter Ken Geesey is 717-349-7111.
