April 28, 2024 – Support of the Selinsgrove Ford Appalachian Mountain Late Model Speedweek continues to grow, starting with Selinsgrove Ford’s backing enabling the series to provide a $17,000 point fund. Over 25 sponsors have announced their support of this year’s 8-race series.
This week two of the most recognized racing clubs in the region, if not the nation, the Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown (ARCH) and the York County Racing Club (YCRC), have signed on to support the Appalachian Mountain Speedweek competitors. Each club will be assigned one of the two B-mains each night of Speedweek to provide the first non-qualifier in that B-Main with $100, provided they are club members. This is in addition to $300 provided by Bernheisel Race Cars and Precision Powder Coating to award $50 to each of the top three non-qualifiers in both of the B-Mains each night.
The York County Racing Club was founded in 1979 and boasts over 3,000 active members including fans, drivers, owners and promoters. While sponsoring various events and trips throughout the year promoting the sport, they also have an Injured Drivers Fund to provide financial help to any YCRC Member Driver that suffers auto racing injuries and associated income loss.
The Auto Racing Club of Hagerstown is also more than a social organization. The club sponsors events at several area speedways and has an injury fund to provide financial support to injured drivers. ARCH has been active in supporting auto racing since 1965. Nearly 400 active members are dedicated to the betterment of the sport of auto racing. Eighty-one of the racing fraternity’s greats have been inducted into the ARCH Hall of Fame to date.
