ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. – Lincoln Speedway and Drydene Performance Products have announced plans to host the Drydene 40, a $10,000-to-win 410 winged sprint car race scheduled for July 29.

The race is part of the new Drydene Triple Crown Series.

The Triple Crown Series consists of Lincoln’s $7,000-to-win PA Speedweek show on June 29, the Drydene 40 and the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic on Sept. 19. If any driver can win all three of the three main events, the team will collect an additional $5,000 bonus.

“We’re happy to partner with Drydene on the Drydene 40 and excited that there is an added chance for a driver to collect on the Triple Crown Series bonus,” said Jerry Parrish, Lincoln Speedway General Manager. “It’s a great opportunity for the drivers and fans in central PA. Drydene is a great supporter of dirt track racing and for them to help put on an event like this right in their own backyard just goes to show how invested they are in making the sport the best it can be.”

Drydene Performance Products is based out of Jonestown, Pennsylvania and has an strong presence in motorsports, including sponsorship agreements with a number of series, teams and drivers.

“Drydene is excited to partner to bring fans and teams the Drydene 40. From the famous PA Posse to legendary tracks like Lincoln Speedway, Drydene is proud to continue our partnership with dirt track racing,” said Dave Klinger, president of Drydene Performance Products.
