Steel City Stampede Flashback – Inaugural Event highlighted by thrilling upset of Apollo Rocket
Sarver, PA (October 3, 2012) With three weeks remaining until the Fourth Annual DIRTcar Round Up Steel City Stampede, let’s take a quick trip in the (not so) way back machine to three years ago and the Inaugural event. Rain kicked back the schedule a day with heats being contested on Saturday and features running Sunday afternoon in front of a beautiful fall foliage back drop off the back straightaway!
Heat race winners read like a who’s who of Lernerville Speedway current and all time greats with Ed Lynch Jr., Rod George, John Flinner, Brian Swartzlander, Dave Hess Jr. (albeit in a UMP Modified) and Joe Kelley all taking the checkers on Saturday Night. In all, 173 cars filled the pits across 8 divisions of racing!
