Newmanstown, PA - (May 4) - After the first four events of the 2019 were completed without the interference of Mother Nature, Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway is now "Oh-for-one" in the month of May.
The racing program scheduled for May 4 was rained out, forcing the Hyper Racing 600cc, Viper Chassis 270cc, Sportsman, 125cc, and 250cc Four-Strokes to wait an extra week before resuming their championship battles. The five weekly divisions will return next Saturday for the speedway's Mother’s Day Special, when all moms receive 50% off a General Admission ticket!
Gates open at 4:30; warm-ups at 6:00; and the first heat goes green at 7:00. All five classes will compete in qualifying heats, consolations (if needed), and 25-lap feature races!
The month of May continues to roll at the Clyde on May 18, when the track recognizes military veterans and current members of the Armed Forces. All current and former members of the military will be admitted free on the 18th, and the Restricted 600's will join the five weekly divisions. It will be the second appearance of the season by the Restricted 600's, with Dylan Kontra attempting to repeat his April victory.
Memorial Day weekend will offer two big nights of winged wildness, as the Bud's Spring Service Memorial Day Open is presented on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26.
The five weekly classes will provide their exciting brand of mud-slinging mayhem on Saturday, while the 600cc and 270cc Sprints return on Sunday along with the All Star Slingshots.
Sunday's action will be lucrative for the 600cc and 270cc pilots, as the qualifying heats, consolations, and main events will all offer a payout. And the Slingers will compete in the seventh annual Slide at the Clyde, a National Tour event for the Briggs and Stratton powered racers.
Additional information on all of May's programs, as well as the rest of the 2019 campaign, is available at www.clydemartinspeedway.com. The speedway is also active on social media, with accounts at Facebook.com/Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway and Twitter (@Lanco_CMMS).
Come on out and LIVE the excitement that is Lanco!
