SELINSGROVE, Pa. - For the first time since 1988, Selinsgrove Speedway will host Twin 20's for sprint cars this Saturday, July 27. The racing program, sponsored by Housing Products, Inc. (HPI) of Selinsgrove, will feature two 20-lap sprint car features in one night.

The Cindy Rowe Auto Glass sprint cars will be joined by the late models, pro stocks and roadrunners beginning at 7 p.m. Grandstand gates open at 5 p.m.

With an additional $500 in purse money being sponsored by HPI, each of the 20-lap sprint car features will pay $1,050 to win. If a driver can win both main events, he will collect a $400 bonus, making it possible for one sprint car driver to earn $2,500 for sweeping the July 27 events.
