Selinsgrove Pushes Back Season Opener


SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The March 21 season opener at Selinsgrove Speedway has been postponed in accordance with Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s recommendations on the current coronavirus pandemic.

The modified class was scheduled to make their first appearance at the track since 2013. The race will be rescheduled in March 2021.

Speedway officials will continue to monitor the pandemic situation and will make a decision next week on the March 29 program featuring 410 sprint cars and super late models.

“While we were looking forward to the return of the modifieds this Saturday the responsible action to take at this time is to follow the state and federal guidelines on the Coronavirus pandemic,” said speedway general manager Steve Inch. “We also took into consideration many of the modified teams and fans would be traveling from New Jersey and New York where the virus has hit hardest. Everyone’s safety and well-being are the first priority.”
