Action Packed Racing at Mercer Raceway Park this Week

Mercer, PA (April 23, 2014): Mercer Raceway Park will present another exciting Saturday Night Live! program on April 26. All six of the track’s regular racing divisions will be in action. Gates will open at 4 p.m., and racing will begin at 7 p.m.

In the 410 Sprint class, presented by Luxaire Heating & Cooling and McCrudden Heating & Cooling, Carl Bowser will be looking to expand upon his slim one-point margin in the chase for the championship. Defending champ Jack Sodeman, Jr. is second, and the winner of the first race, Rod George, rides in third, just six points behind Bowser. Brandon Matus and Eric Williams round out the top five. Cole Duncan, Brandon Spithaler, Brent Matus, Arnie Kent, and Jimmy Seger complete the top ten. Popular drivers like Scott Priester, Dennis Wagner, Adam Kekich, and Dan Kuriger are currently outside the top ten, but a strong finish by any one of them could shake up the standings.

Frankie Guidace rebounded from a disappointing opening night to score his first victory of the season in the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds. Andy Feil led wire to wire to earn the laurels in the Bonnell’s Rod Shop Outlaw Sprint Warriors.
