SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Since the inception of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series fueled by Sunoco in 2014, there has never been a sanctioned event at Selinsgrove Speedway.

That will change in March.

Management of Selinsgrove Speedway and the STSS have jointly announced the Saturday, March 20 Icebreaker event at the Snyder County half-mile oval will be part of the series schedule.

Both the STSS-sanctioned modifieds and Crate 602 Sportsman will be in competition at the event.

The STSS Modifieds will race for 40 laps, with the winner earning $5,000. The STSS Crate 602 Sportsman division will take part in a 25-lap feature with $1,500 going to the winner.

South Region points will be offered for both the Modifieds and Crate 602 Sportsman.

The event takes place one day prior to the scheduled STSS Modified 40-lap event at neighboring Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway on Sunday, March 21, setting up a doubleheader weekend of modified racing in the Keystone State.

STSS management plans to release a complete series schedule by mid-December.

Modifieds have not competed at Selinsgrove Speedway since March 2013 in a small-block modified event won by Duane Howard. An unsanctioned event was scheduled for last March, but ultimately fell to COVID-19 restrictions.
