Residents from the Kane Regional Center in Ross Township are going racing. On Friday, June 1st, residents from Kane Ross are heading to Lernerville Speedway to watch some Friday-night, short-track racing.
Lernerville Speedway, located in Sarver, PA, is one of the top dirt tracks in the country. The track first started hosting races in October 1967, and it has continued to be successful through today. In the early years, the track was owned and operated by Don Martin, who was inducted into the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame following his death in 1993.
The residents will get to see the track's big Friday night show, "Fab Four" racing. "Fab Four" racing has four different types of cars running in separate races - 410 Sprint Cars, Late Models, Big-Block Modifieds, and Stock Cars.
"Last year when we went to Lernerville, it was a big hit," said Dana Nicodemus, Recreation Supervisor at Kane Ross. "We have some true racing fans at Kane, and they get a great view of the track and get to see all of the action when we go."
The tickets, which were purchased with funds from the Kane Foundation, are for handicap-accessible seating at the 12,000-seat speedway.
