Limited Lates Race at Path Valley August 25
Two Wheel Promotions will bring the limited late models back to the Path Valley Speedway Park Friday night, August 25, for a special unscheduled feature because many of the drivers who raced there last year have asked to come back.
With the closing of Susquehanna Speedway many of the limited late models have no regular Friday night track. Last season the limiteds, based on the 358 Silver Spring limited engine and the stock 406 Hagerstown Sportsman engine, raced every other week at Path Valley. These are true dirt late models with a less expensive engine, but with all of the racing capability of the big, exciting touring series cars.
Jason Covert of Orbisonia won the 1999 limited late championship at Path Valley with 1425 points and four wins, far ahead of Sterling Kinard of Dover who had 930 points. Brad Kling of Shade Gap was third with 900, Brad Houck of Waynesboro fourth with 835 and Larry Baer of Dover fifth with 795.
A decision to run the limited lates more frequently at Path Valley will depend on the turnout August 25.
The smooth, steep Path Valley banks and wide turns are now under the management of Two Wheel Promotions, and Jack Flowers, John Winsett and John Lewis IV now own the track. Micro sprints, Zero Ice V8 Street Stocks, mini-stocks, four-cylinder thunder cars and guest classes like the INEX-sanctioned Legends Cars, the Dwarf cars and 305 sprints race every Friday night. Go-karts race on the smooth, steep Path Valley banks on most Saturdays, and several Sundays feature special AMA sanctioned motorcycle racing.
For information on the schedule and track, race teams can call the promoters at 717-426-4756 or 717-426-2910, consult the website at www.pathvalley.com, or they can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. The new phone number at the track is 717-349-7111. The Path Valley Speedway Park is located in Spring Run PA off Routes 641 and 75. It is five miles north of the PA Turnpike Exit 14 at Willow Hill.
