SELINSGROVE – After a week off on July 4 to celebrate Independence Day, Selinsgrove Speedway will return to action next week, on July 11, with the biggest race of the year for 360 sprint cars at the Snyder County oval.

The track will host the 20th annual Mach 1 Chassis 360 Sprint National Open, offering a total purse worth nearly $17,000 for the 360 sprints.

The Apache Tree Service 305 sprint cars will also be on the racing program along with action for limited late models.

Passing points earned in the heat races will be used to line up the 30-lap Mach 1 Chassis National Open with $5,000 posted for the winner. There will be no time trials.

The event will pay $300 just to start for the sprinters.

Started in 2008 by sprint car driver Mark Smith, Mach 1 Chassis features all the latest manufacturing and welding equipment to build top-of-the-line racecar chassis and parts.
