Sarver, PA (July 4, 2019) The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series presented by Mobil One will invade Lernerville Speedway on Friday night bringing an impressive field of regulars with them.  And they’ll be taking on a group of locals who will be looking to give them a run for the $5,000 check presented to the winner.

So far, mother nature has been downright evil to the All Stars as they’ve lost more shows than they’ve completed thus far. With 12 shows in the books, last year’s feature winner Aaron Reutzel leads the series standings by two markers over former track champion and multi time All Star Champion Dale Blaney coming into Friday night.  The 2019 roster also features the very young and talented Cory Eliason and fan favorite Paul McMahan as well as Brock Zearfoss, Greg Wilson, Skylar Gee and former weekly competitor George Hobaugh Jr.  It’s a stacked lineup, one that should feature the always formidable “Steel City Outlaw” Tim Shaffer. Reutzel has garnered four wins in series action this season while Blaney has two to his credit thus far with Zearfoss and Eliason chipping in with one win apiece.

Leading the local side is AJ Flick who has a 32 point lead over former track champion Jack Sodeman Jr. both have collected wins this season as have Carl Bowser and Sye Lynch. Flick is coming off a performance that saw him battle with Central, PA star Danny Dietrich for the win in Wednesday night’s Pennsylvania Speedweek show at Port Royal Speedway before succumbing to a flat tire in the second half of the race.

The All Stars will be joined by the Allegheny Sprint Tour 305 RaceSaver Sprint Cars who made their first Action Track appearance last Friday as Will Fleming came up with a last lap pass for the victory.

There will be fireworks not only on the track but in the sky,  courtesy of Ron Gillette’s Towing and Excavating on tap for Friday night as well.

Pits will open at 4 pm with grandstands opening at 5 pm. Hot laps will take place at 6:45 pm and will be followed immediately by time trials and racing.  Adult general admission is $25, $15 for students ages 11-17 and children 10 and under are free. Pit passes are available for $35 for DIRTcar Members and $40 for non members.
