Joining the 358 sprint cars will be the Salem RV Center pro stocks in the division’s first of 22 events this season. Track gates will open at 4 p.m.
The 358 sprint cars will compete in heat races and a 25-lap main event paying $1,500 to win, which continues to be the highest weekly winner’s share for limited sprint car racing in Pennsylvania. The pro stocks will also compete in heat races and a 15-lap feature. Drivers will draw for their starting positions for qualifying.
Nate Snyder of Halifax is set to begin defense of his 2009 track championship. Last season Snyder became the division’s sixth different champion without a victory. His consistency coupled with 12 top five finishes in 19 races propelled him to his first-ever track championship.
Several other drivers are also expected to be serious title contenders in 2010. Pat Cannon of Etters was last year’s leading feature winner with seven victories even though it was an abbreviated season for Cannon at Selinsgrove due to a brief stint in 410 sprint car racing. Cannon announced he will return to Selinsgrove full-time in 2010.
Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove started off the season with a victory in the northeast opener at Williams Grove Speedway last Friday night. Heimbach, the division’s all-time leading winner with 29 victories, will be seeking his third career track championship at Selinsgrove in 2010.
Phil Walter of McClure will be celebrating his 25th anniversary in racing in 2010 and will be gunning for his first career track championship at Selinsgrove Speedway. Walter, a former champion at Clinton County Speedway, won two features last season and finished fourth in the standings.
Scott Flammer of West Milford, N.J., is the defending opening day winner for 358 sprint cars at Selinsgrove Speedway. Flamer set a new 25-lap track record of 7:50.942 in last year’s opener.
