‘King of the Can’ week­end set

The Times-Tribune - - SPORTS - SCOTT WALSH

Two big nights of rac­ing are set as Penn Can Speedway in Susque­hanna hosts its “King of the Can” week­end.

It starts tonight at 7 with a pro­gram head­lined by the Mike Petri­lak Me­mo­rial for Street Stocks. The 22-lap fea­ture pays $1000 to win and hon­ors the former lo­cal stand­out racer who died in a snow­mo­bile ac­ci­dent in 1997.

Also sched­uled is a GRIT Se­ries 602 Crate Sports­man fea­ture pay­ing $1400 to win, the GRIT Se­ries 600cc Mod­i­fieds and Four-cylin­der Stocks. There also will be prac­tice for Mod­i­fieds, as well as a Mod­i­fied match race.

Then Satur­day at 6 p.m., the Mod­i­fieds high­light the card with a 55-lap fea­ture pay­ing $5,555 to win. The race has been des­ig­nated a Short Track Su­per Se­ries event and will de­ter­mine the North Re­gion cham­pi­onship. That means in ad­di­tion to the Penn Can reg­u­lars, many of the top driv­ers in the north­east are ex­pected to in­vade, in­clud­ing NASCAR Truck Se­ries reg­u­lar Ste­wart Friesen. He won when he vis­ited Penn Can for the “Hot Sum­mer Night Spe­cial” in July.

Be­sides the Mod­i­fieds, Fac­tory Stocks and IMCA Mod­i­fieds are sched­uled to com­pete. The Mo­hawk Val­ley Vintage Dirt Mod­i­fieds will also spon­sor the Se­ward Rice Vintage Me­mo­rial in honor of the former Penn Can pro­moter.
