SODUS, N.Y. — The A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour will team with the United Racing Club sprint cars in a three-race weekend this year, joining forces for a Labor Day weekend triple header in the Keystone State.
PST and URC will head to the historic Williams Grove Speedway on Sept. 1, visit the Selinsgrove Speedway Sept. 2 and conclude the weekend at Path Valley Speedway Park on Sept. 3.
The Patriot Sprint Tour returns to the Grove for the first time since 2011, when the Patriots teamed up with URC in a special event. Sunbury, Pa. driver Mark Smith won that event in his Mach Chassis No. 1.
Selinsgrove Speedway has been a mainstay visit with the Patriot Sprint Tour for the last few seasons, being a part of the Joe Whitcomb Memorial in June. Last season’s Joe Whitcomb Memorial was won by 2016 URC champion Davie Franek. Franek also won with the Patriots last season at Little Valley during the Bonnell’s Collision Center Western Weekend, and again at Fonda Speedway during the Kramer Williamson Memorial.
This will be the Patriot Sprint Tour’s 15th season of racing operation, dating back to 2003, and its 11th under the Mike Emhof Motorsports Inc. umbrella.
The Patriot Sprint Tour schedule is near completion and will kick off at Outlaw Speedway on Friday, April 21 as part of the Outlaw Spring Nationals, with a tentative schedule release expected in the coming weeks.
