For Immediate Release
May 16, 2017 (Sandy Lake, PA) The first race of the season didn’t disappoint as far as car count for the Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series with 50 cars on hand to compete at Sharon Speedway last Saturday night. However, the unexpected rain showers certainly put a damper on the evening’s festivities cutting the night short only after five exciting heat races were finished for the Series’ event.

The Applefest Make-up race from 2016 will be rescheduled to the July 22nd Homak Penn Ohio event. Saturday’s event is to be determined on a make-up date.
