BROWNSBURG, Ind. (May 30, 2018) – After losing each of the events earlier this year to Mother Nature, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will get to try again, ready to invade areas of Western Pennsylvania and Central Pennsylvania during visits to Lernerville Speedway and Bedford Speedway, respectively. Tony Stewart’s All Stars will takeover Lernerville Speedway on Friday, June 1, followed by a trip to Bedford Speedway for the Roy Morral Classic on Sunday, June 3. Each event will award a $5,000 top prize, the first and only appearances of 2018.
Originally slated for Friday evening, May 4, Lernerville Speedway was forced to postpone the All Star Circuit of Champions visit and utilize their previously scheduled rain date after incoming showers soaked the Sarver-area leaving Lernerville Speedway heavily saturated and unrecoverable.Tony Stewart’s All Stars have made 38 prior appearances at the famed-circuit, most recently invading the Sarver, Pa., 4/10-mile oval on June 2, 2017. Logan Wagner was the victor; his first-ever All Star win at Lernerville Speedway and his first against the Series overall.
Bedford Speedway’s All Star visit was originally scheduled for Sunday, April 15, wrapping up a three-race swing through Central Pennsylvania that also included visits to Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway. Unfortunately, cold temperatures and incoming wet weather forced officials to cancel the evening’s program. Lernerville’s decision to utilize the rain date of June 1 opened a window for Bedford Speedway, thus allowing the regional travelers to make their return to the Bedford Fairgrounds half-mile.
Bedford Speedway’s history of All Star competition is shorter than Lernerville’s, but just as competitive, hosting the Tony Stewart-owned organization on six occasions, crowning six different winners, most recently crowning “Blackjack” Brian Brown in September of 2017. The victory was Brown’s first-ever All Star triumph at Bedford Speedway, but his second of the weekend, actually winning at Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway one night prior.
Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., will have pit gates open all day on Friday, June 1, but the venue will be emptied at 4 p.m. so that pit passes can be purchased. A mandatory All Star meeting will take shape at 5:45 p.m., followed by hot laps at 6:45 p.m. Those seeking additional news and notes should visit Lernerville Speedway live on the Web at www.lernerville.com.
Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Pa., will open pit gates at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 3. A mandatory All Star meeting will take shape at 5:30 p.m., followed by hot laps at 6 p.m. Those seeking additional news and notes regarding the Roy Morral Classic should visit Bedford Speedway on the Web at www.bedfordspeedway.com.
