Let’s Go Racing! this Saturday at the Park, May Flowers 150 Enduro Announced

let's go racingMercer, PA (April 15, 2015): “We will be ready to race on Saturday,” Mercer Raceway Park track manager Frank Benic confidently declared. The speedway has yet to start the 2015 racing season, as wet weather interfered with four straight events. Add in the postponement of the Jack Frost 150 Enduro in January, and that makes five missed opportunities.

“Let’s go racing,” will be heard loud and clear on Saturday afternoon when the gates swing open for the first special event of the new season. Bonnell’s Rod Shop has added money to the purses for each of the six divisions that will see action. Four thousand dollars will await the winner of the initial 410 Sprint Car race that will be presented by 4 Your Car Connection and World of Wheels. The Bonnell’s Rod Shop Outlaw Sprint Warriors will slug it out for a cool grand, as will the Approved Toilet Rentals 358 Modifieds. The Precise Racing Products Stock Cars will chase after $500. The Rock Concrete Modified Lite winner will take home $375. The Mini Stocks will have $200 on the line in their contest offered by Eperthener’s Auto Wrecking and Ray’s Racing Collectibles.
