Night of Fire at the Hardeeville Motor Speedway on Saturday.
HARDEEVILLE, S.C. (June 20, 2002) - Fred Sibley from Elkhart, Indiana will visit the Hardeeville Motor Speedway with his "Little Red Beer Hauler" Jet Truck. The 9,000 horsepower "hauler" will be on display before the racing events with a demonstration of its power during intermission. Racing action will feature the O.C. Welch Ford-Lincoln-Mercury Late Models, Legends Cars, Xtreme Stock Cars and Road Warriors.
When Sibley, better known as "Airplane Freddy," puts on his helmet and firesuit, lights his ever present cigar, jet fans know they are in for a spectacular flame throwing spectacle. After having originated the bigger than life fire shows, he began searching for a new and totally different aspect to thrill the fans. Fans are in for their biggest thrill when he rolls the "Little Red Beer Hauler" jet dragster to the starting line. The big, red, mean machine sports a new concept in turbo jet racing, a J33-41 Allison centrifugal engine. The first and only one of its kind, it is designed to compete with the new breed of faster, jet powered dragsters.
Gates open on Saturday at 4:00 p.m., qualifying begins at 6:30 p.m. followed by the National Anthem at 7:05 p.m. General admission ticket prices are $10.00 for adults; $6.00 for Juniors (ages 13-16), Seniors (55 and older) and Military (with proper I.D.); $2.00 for children (ages 6-12); and children under 5 are free.
