Raceivers Mandatory Beginning With May 13 Event

Newmanstown, PA -  We may be singing a different tune in July or August, but right now, there's just too much rain and it's falling at the wrong times! Especially if you're a race driver and/or fan...

  Friday's heavy rainfall combined with additional showers and cloudy, damp weather on Saturday forced postponement of the scheduled racing card at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway on Saturday night. The precipitation also postponed, to next Saturday, all Kid's Night festivities.

   Kid's Night is now May 13, when all youth (ages 12 and under) will be admitted free, and there will be games, contests, and prizes galore for all the kids in attendance.

  The Quarter-Midgets of the DQMRC and Honeybrook Raceway will also be present at the Clyde on Saturday. The cars will be on display all night long, and they will also get some track time during intermission.

  At 5 p.m., there will be a "chalk the block party" where kids (12 and under) will be escorted to an area outside the backstretch. They will be given sidewalk chalk and a mission: create a racing-themed drawing on the blocks that make up the retaining wall. The five feature winners from April 29 will then judge the drawings, and the winner gets to wave a green flag to start one of the Kid's Night feature races!

JesusRaceTeam.com will also have a table set up behind the grandstands where young fans can create a racing poster.

  And this reminder goes out to all race teams running at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway...beginning this Saturday, May 13, the use of Raceivers becomes MANDATORY. Please use them all night long, beginning in warm-ups, so that any problems with your raceiver may be addressed prior to actual competition.

  Gates open at 4 p.m. Warm-ups get underway at 5:30, and the first heat race goes green at 6:30. The Hyper Racing 600's, Viper Chassis 270's, HammerDown Engines 250cc Four-Strokes, Sportsman, and 125cc Micro-Sprints will compete in qualifying heats, consolations, and 25-lap main events on Saturday.

  Adult General Admission is just $8.00, with discounts for Senior Citizens and Students. Since this Saturday is Kid's Night, all youth 12-and-under receive free admission.

  It's Kid's Night at the Clyde; what a perfect time to come out and LIVE the excitement that is Lanco!
