Sarver, PA (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) Fab 4 racing is back tonight at Lernerville Speedway.  Only four Friday night features remain this season with two track championships still up for grabs.

A tight battle continues in the Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprints division as AJ Flick and Jack Sodeman Jr. are separated by just 16-points.  Flick has four feature wins this season and has finished on the podium in 8 out of 10-events.  Flick needs podium finishes down the stretch to secure the track title.

Sodeman Jr. needs to grab every point available over the final four Friday night’s as well as avoid disaster if he hopes to capture his second track title.

George Hobaugh sits third in points, but Brent Matus is a mere three points behind and Brandon Matus sits six points behind, so this will be a battle to watch over the next four weeks.

The Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stocks battle is even tighter as Tyler Dietz and Corey McPherson are separated by just one point!  Dietz has visited Terry Bowser Excavating Victory Lane four times this season while McPherson has been there three times.  Noah Brunell, who picked up a victory in June, sits in third place 17-points ahead of last week’s winner Joey Zambiotti who is fourth.

Rex King Jr sits atop the Diehl Automotive Big Block Modifieds standings and has all but locked up his second track championship.  Dave Murdick sits in second 29-points ahead of Brian Swartzlander.

Michael Norris is in first-place in the Precise Racing Products DIRTcar late model division. Norris has six wins this season and a feature victory over the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Models in June. Ken Schaletenbrand sits in second place, 17-points ahead of Gary Lyle.  Colton Flinner, who picked up a win at Port Royal Speedway last Saturday, is fourth.

Tonight, is also Big Rig Night at “The Action Track”.  Fans can check out some of the regions finest big rigs behind the grand stands before and in between the racing on the track.

Adult general admission is $15, $12 for seniors, $10 for students ages 11-17 and children 10 and under are free.  Pit passes are available for $25 for DIRTcar Members and $30 for non-members.
