Sarver, PA (August 6, 2014) With just three weeks remaining in the 2014 Fab Four Racing season, the Budweiser Points Leaders are distancing themselves from the field, as three of the four won their respective features last week.  Rex King Jr., Carl Bowser and Alex Ferree each made their fourth trip of the season to Sheetz Victory Lane last Friday, just as Jim Fosnaught did a few weeks ago. 

Bowser and Ferree each carry more than a full night’s worth of points lead into Friday Night’s program.  Bowser leads Brandon Matus 383-339 in the Peoples TWP Sprints, while Ferree leads Russ King 400-334 in the Precise Late Models.  Rex King Jr. stretched his lead in the Diehl Mods to 385-362 over his father Rex King Sr.

The closest race, as usual, is in the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar Sportsman where Jim Fosnaught remains the Bud Points leader, but Rob Shook now rides second after his feature win Friday Night and Corey McPherson’s disqualification.  Entering Friday Night, Fosnaught (406) leads Shook (389) by 17 and McPherson (370) by 36.

In addition to the on-track action Friday Night, Don Gamble will also be hosting the annual Nostalgia Night that acts as a homecoming for Lernerville Legends from the 45+ year history of the speedway and displays racecars of days gone by.  The following individuals have attended previous Nostalgia Night Events:
