Seymour set for Summer Holiday Classic this Sunday night

Seymour May 22 – N.E.W. DIRT is all set for a big night of racing this Sunday night at the Seymour Speedway.

Victory Sign is the title sponsor for the first leg of the 2014 Summer Holiday Classic series which will feature the WDLMA Late Models, along with the five regular weekly divisions that race on the 1/3 mile banked clay oval.

The Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars, Turbo Blue Street Stocks, IMCA Sport Mods and 4 Cylinders have all been very competitive during this very young season.

With only 2 races in out of 5 run so far, the weather finally took a turn for the better last week with a near perfect night for racing.   Looks like the big Memorial Day weekend should continue that trend.

The pit opens at 3 PM Sunday afternoon.  

For the five weekly divisions, drivers pit passes are all $30.

WDLMA entry is $75.

All other pit entry is $23 for club members, $30 for non members.

Lineups will be by averages for the weekly divisions and Draw/ re-draw for the Late Models.

Cut off for both is 4:30.

The grandstand opens at 4 PM.

Admission for the Special event is:

Adults $16.00

Students 13-18 and seniors 55 plus $11.00

Kids 12 and under are FREE with paid adult.

Special Note: if anyone is using a rain check from 2 weeks ago, the difference in the admission price will be charged.

Racing is set to begin at 5:30 PM…SHARP!

The Summer Holiday Classics are a three race series its sixth year and offers fans the opportunity to see the late models compete at Seymour.   

The other 2 races are set for Sunday June 29 and Sunday August 31.

Last year, Ron Berna, Troy Springborn and Nick Anvelink each took a feature trophy home and the competition should be equally exciting this year.

The Budweiser IMCA Modifieds have seen 2 different feature winners in Jamie Schmidt and Tony Wedelstadt.  Jeremy Cota and Kevin Bethke share the IMCA Sport Mod wins and 4 Cylinders have split as well between Brad Wedde and Ralph Liegeois, Jr.

Brandon Czarapata  has claimed the first 2 Coors light IMCA Stock Car features and Jerry Winkler has done the same in the Turbo Blue Street Stock division.

The competition has been tight so far and with the total purse increased for all divisions,  should amp the energy level up a bit as well.

Don’t forget, the starting time is 5:30 PM  EVERY Sunday this season, so you don’t miss a lap of action.
