WEEDSPORT, NY (May 31, 2019) – It’s not often fans can witness a Big Block Modified and 410 Sprint Car double-header. It’s even less common to see one driver compete in both events. However, this Sunday, June 9 at Weedsport Speedway, fans will be treated to “Lightning” Larry Wight’s effort in both legs of the All-Star Showcase presented by A-Verdi Storage Containers.

Wight, who currently rides fifth in the Stirling Lubricants/Champion Racing Oil Modified Series at Weedsport, will compete in his No. 99L Big Block Modified on Sunday as well as his No. 99L 410 Sprinter in the All-Star Circuit of Champions main event.

Last year, Wight turned the same trick, finishing 10th in the All-Star main event and second in the night’s Big Block Modified feature.

The All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car tour has been plagued with rain for much of the season, completing only four events as of June 3.

Currently, Aaron Reutzel leads the series point standings over Paul McMahan, Dale Blaney, Spencer Bayston and Tim Shaffer.

Those All-Stars hot shoes will join the likes of Cale Conley, Corey Eliason, Tyler Esh, Greg Wilson, Brock Zearfoss and even series owner, Tony Stewart, on June 9 at Weedsport Speedway for the All-Star Showcase.

Stewart, who has competed in nearly 30 Sprint Car events this season, already has seven total wins including back-to-back USCS triumphs over the Memorial Day Weekend.

A field of more than 24 Sprint Cars is expected on Sunday between the All-Star regulars, Pennsylvania invaders and 360 Sprint racers from the northeast.

Danny Dietrich and Lucas Wolfe are among those expected on Sunday from the state of Pennsylvania.
