Sarver, PA (May 10, 2018) It’s a very special Fab4 Friday Fueled by Turners Premium Iced Tea on tap this Friday at The Action Track. The Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Models will be racing for an enhanced purse and in a very special race with a great deal of history behind it. The Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprints, Diehl Automotive DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds and MIllerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stocks will also be on hand for their second points events of the season.
Aside from the racing action, this Friday night will provide some other special moments as we will also be celebrating Mother’s Day weekend with free grandstand admission for all the ladies and a “Meet The Drivers” segment featuring the Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprint drivers. Friday night also marks the debut of the Lernerville Kids Club as a special night of activities for children 12 and under take place.
Frank Choura was an area legend that raced in the geography from 1960 to 1987, appearing in Coupes and Late Models and on this Friday, he will be honored in the Inaugural Frank Choura Memorial for the Late Models.  There will be $2525 awaiting the winner on Friday night and more money spread throughout the purse as some area invaders are expected to tangle with the weekly contingent led by opening night feature winner Michael Norris. Former track champions Alex Ferree and Jared Miley are expected to compete and there could very well be a few surprises waiting in the pits with the increased money on the line.
In the Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprints, AJ Flick took the feature win on opening night but had to overcome a strong effort from a strong running George Hobaugh who has started the season with authority. The veteran pilot took home a runner up finish on night one and last week garnered a heat race victory in All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car action at Sharon Speedway.  It was a good night for the Lernerville regulars at Sharon as former track champions Carl Bowser and Brandon Spithaler found themselves in the dashes with Hobaugh, John Garvin and Sye Lynch while Dan Shetler and another former track champion, Danny Holtgraver made the field and more than held their own throughout the night. Former track champion Jack Sodeman Jr also made the field but was forced to retire early in the race.
