Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend At Georgetown Now Saturday & Sunday October 27-28

Story By: BRETT DEYO / GEORGETOWN SPEEDWAY – GEORGETOWN, DE – A coastal storm heading for the Mid-Atlantic Region late Friday has forced Georgetown Speedway management to alter the schedule for the year-end Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend at the Sussex County half-mile oval.

The event will now take place on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28.

“After reviewing all available forecast information, pushing the event back to Saturday and Sunday seemed to be our best option,” Georgetown Speedway promoter Brett Deyo said. “We have sealed the track and graded the pit area to be ready for rain Friday and overnight into Saturday. Now, we wait for the storm to track north and cap off the 2018 season in a big way.”

On Saturday, pit gates are scheduled to open at 2 p.m. Grandstand gates will be unlocked at 4 p.m. Track run-in will get underway at 4:50 p.m. Race time is 6 p.m.

Saturday’s program will include the following: Small-Block Modified complete program and $3,000-to-win, 30-lap main; Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Crate 602 Sportsman complete program (20 laps, $1,000 to win); Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series complete program (20 laps); Southern Delaware Vintage Stock Cars (20 laps); Little Lincolns (12 laps); Delmarva Chargers (12 laps); Delaware Super Trucks (12 laps); Super Late Model time trials and heat races; and STSS Modified timed warm-ups and heat races.

A post-race bonfire and DJ will take place after the completion of racing on Saturday.

On Sunday, pit gates open at 1 p.m. Grandstand gates are unlocked at 2 p.m. Track run-in starts at 3 p.m., with racing scheduled at 4 p.m.

On the agenda Sunday: STSS Modified consolations and 40-lap feature paying $5,000 to win; Super Late Model consolations and 40-lap feature paying $5,000 to win; RUSH Late Model complete program (20 laps, $1,000 to win); Delaware Super Trucks (12 laps); and Delmarva Chargers (12 laps).

During the weekend, the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman South Region title will be decided on Saturday. The STSS Modified Velocita-USA South Region champion will be crowned on Sunday.
