GEORGETOWN, Del. – Georgetown Speedway has hosted a variety of excitement since its construction in 1949.

On Friday, July 26, a new chapter will be written in the history books.

The Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars will make their first-ever appearance on the progressively banked half-mile as part of Blue Hen Dispose-All Night.

Georgetown’s L&J Sheet Metal Modifieds will join the non-winged sprint cars, with that division competing for $3,000 to win over 30 laps.

“This is something all-new for the fans of Georgetown Speedway,” promoter Brett Deyo said. “We are looking forward to doubling up wingless sprint cars with the modifieds for one huge night.”

The USAC East Coast organization spans from Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Delaware, working hand-in-hand with the United Racing Club to provide 360 car owners, teams and drivers with the best possible schedules.

Steven Drevicki, Chandler Leiby and Eddie Strada lead the series points into the summer stretch, which includes the tour’s debut at Georgetown.
