Multiple Sprint Divisions Invade Williams Grove Friday

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars and the URC Sprint Series will be in action at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

For the popular URC 360 sprints, the event will be a challenge race with the regular Williams Grove HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint cars.

The 410 sprints will race for $5,500-to-win.

The URC 360/358 sprints will race for a purse offering $2,000-to-win and $200 to start. 

Both main events will be 25 laps in distance.

Josh Weller was victorious in URC action at the track last season.

URC history at the track dates back to 1948 when Lucky Lux scored a win.

In recent history, a few of the Williams Grove 410 sprint drivers choose to compete in both classes when the 360s are in action.

The decision has proven to be a good one over the years with pilots like Anthony Macri, Steve Buckwalter, Mark Smith and the late Greg Hodnett picking up checkered flags among others.

Devon Borden is one such driver that will be pulling double duty this time around.

In 410 sprint action at the track this year so far, three exciting races have produced three different winners in the form of Zeb Wise, Lance Dewease and Brent Marks.

The 358 sprints opened their season at Williams Grove on April 7 when Cody Fletcher scored his first-ever oval victory.
