Mechanicsburg – Just one month remains until the 2018 season opener at Williams Grove Speedway on Sunday afternoon, March 11, featuring the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars.
A 2 pm starting time is slated for the sprints-only program that will find the high-flying sprinters competing in a 25-lap main paying $3,600 to win.
Thomasville’s Greg Hodnett is the defending opening day winner at Williams Grove Speedway.
Hodnett went on to claim a total of four full-blow sprint car victories at the track last season along with a URC win.
If completed, the Sunday afternoon lidlifter will be the first Sunday opener completed since back in 2008 when Fred Rahmer copped the main event.
Rahmer accumulated a total of six Williams Grove opening day victories during his storied run at the facility.
His son, Freddie Rahmer is the defending Williams Grove Speedway Lawrence Chevrolet sprint car track champion.
