Fab4 Racing Revved Up with Marburger will roll into mid-October
Lernerville.TV will live-stream weekly Fab4 Racing
Sarver, PA (June 16, 2020) For as long as anyone can remember, the Friday Fab4 Racing weekly program has ended when high school football begins, but after losing two months worth of Fab4 Racing due to the COVID-19 stay at home orders, the Tomson Family has made the unprecedented decision to extend the Fab4 Racing season the whole way up until the DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede in October! In doing so, five Fast Fridays of Fab4 Racing will be added to the end of the schedule to make up for some of the events lost at what was supposed to be the beginning of the schedule.
The extended Fab4 slate begins on Friday, August 28 on what was originally scheduled as the Sprint Car Spectacular. The following weekend, when events typically move to Saturdays in September, Fab4 Racing on Friday, September 4 will replace Autumn Motive Fest which was originally scheduled for Saturday, September 5. Originally an off weekend, Friday, September 18 will now be a Fab4 Friday.
Friday, October 2 will feature three of our Fab4 divisions plus the RUSH Sprints. On that particular Friday, Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway will be hosting the two-day Pittsburgher 100, so the Late Models will not be on our card to show support for PPMS’s biggest event of the season. That weekend is also Little Guys Nationals weekend at Michaels Mercer Raceway, so we’ll leave the Pro Stocks on our card, but points will not be on the line so drivers can opt to follow the Penn Ohio Pro Stock series that night if they so choose and still remain in title contention.
And finally, Championship Night 2020 will be contested on Friday, October 9; just one week before the 12th Annual DIRTcar Round Steel City Stampede!
Unfortunately, in addition to cancelling the Sprint Car Spectacular and Autumn Motive Fest, due to current restrictions in place, our Race’n RibFest scheduled for the weekend of July 17-19 has been canceled at this time, but may return to the schedule as a one-day event as guidelines evolve. Also, the Mid-Season Championship format, originally scheduled for this Friday, June 19 has been scrapped in favor of our normal Fab4 format. The Chad McCutcheon Memorial, also scheduled for this Friday, June 19, has been postponed to a date yet to be determined.
Originally planned as part of Championship Night festivities, fireworks will take place on August 21 courtesy of our friends at American Steel Processing! And since they were removed from the schedule on August 28, the Allegheny Sprint Tour 305s have been added to the July 3 card and the RUSH Sprints have been added to the October 2 card.
As announced on this week’s episode of the Action Track Podcast, Lernerville Speedway has reached an agreement with SPEED SPORT TV and Riivet Inc. to live-stream our weekly Fab4 Racing program on the soon-to-launch Lernerville.TV. With our own pay-per-view platform, the finest race fans in the world will be able to enjoy Fab4 Racing from their living rooms or even in the palm of their hands! More details will be released later this week in an additional press release, but over 15,000 people watched the live-stream of our Test & Tune last Friday on Facebook and we’re thrilled to offer the best weekly card in all of dirt track racing online to our fans all over the world!
In Summary, Fast Fridays of Fab4 Racing have been added on August 28, September 4, September 18, October 2 (less the Late Models), and October 9. As such, the Sprint Car Spectacular, Autumn Motive Fest, Race’N RibFest and the Mid-Season Championship format have all been canceled. But fireworks will light up the sky on August 12, 305s are added to July 3, RUSH Sprints added to October 2 and Fab4 Racing Revved up with Marburger will live-stream weekly on Lernerville.TV! It took a while to see the green flag, but the 2020 Lernerville schedule is shaping up to be a great one!
