Steel City Stampede – Friday Night Recap

SARVER, PA – October 12, 2018 – 255 racecars were in the Lernerville Speedway pit area on Friday night for the 10th edition of the DIRTcar Roundup “Steel City Stampede.” A chilly 45-degree evening played host to 24 heat races around the 4/10-mile, before a slight shower moved in over the area, moving the remaining two 270 Micro-Sprint heats to Saturday, before the last chance showdowns.

Just shy of 100 campers joined the fans out in the parking lot, making for a nice bonfire presence at the end of the night…

Twelve divisions of cars made for a very entertaining night of heat racing at “The Action Track,” and the four DIRTcar house classes were certainly no exception.
