    Sarver, PA (June 5, 2024) The days are winding down until the inaugural Firecracker Fest presented by Big River Steel kicks off on Tuesday, May 18 as five straight days of entertainment and racing take over The Action Track. Be sure to get your tickets to what promises to be a fantastic, fun filled week featuring concerts, Bull Riding and Barrel Racing, and three straight nights of racing with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and RUSH Late Models!

    The 18th Annual Firecracker 100 presented by Big River Steel has become a five-day event with the addition of a rockin’ country concert and SEBRA Bulls and Barrels showdown! Previously a three-day speed festival featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and a wide variety of fan friendly events, the new and improved Firecracker Fest presented by Big River Steel will now feature even more entertainment options and will stretch out over five full nights of action on and off the track!

    The expanded format of the newly rebranded Firecracker Fest will give event campers and community members even more to see and do before the racing starts on Thursday, June 20. And, not only will there be more entertainment at night, there will also be opportunities for fans to enjoy more activities during the daytime in 2024 courtesy of Sprankle’s Neighborhood Market in historic downtown Saxonburg.

    Firecracker Fest kicks off Tuesday, June 18 with country singer/songwriter Drew Baldridge in concert at 7:00 PM. The Patoka, Illinois native will be bringing his hits to the Firecracker crowd for all to enjoy.

    The dust really starts to kick up on Wednesday, June 19, with SEBRA Extreme Bull Riding presented by Puryear Cattle Company. An action-packed event with professional bull riding and barrel racing starts at 6:00 PM and will be followed by a live DJ to close out the night.

    Also new for 2024, kids and adults of all ages can enjoy daily activities including bocce, horseshoes, yard golf, cornhole, disc golf, giant bowling, all kinds of food and drink and more during Firecracker Days at nearby Sprankle Woods, as well as tours of downtown Saxonburg including a stop at Spankle’s Neighborhood Market to stock up on all of your camping needs! Shuttles will be departing to and from Lernerville from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM June 18-22.

    Last, but certainly not least, there's the racing as the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series do battle for three straight nights in the $50,000-to-win 18th Annual Firecracker 100 presented by Big River Steel and the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply RUSH Late Models will once again throwdown in the $20,000-to-win Bill Emig Memorial, plus the full array of fan friendly and driver interactive activities Firecracker fans have come to expect and enjoy year after year!

    In addition to traditional ticketing options, fans can enjoy all five nights of action, (the concert, the rodeo and all three nights of racing) for just $109! Five-day event tickets are available online now at www.Lernervilletickets.com. Where else can your purchase five nights of family fun entertainment for just over $20 per day?!
