TRENTON, NJ – With Lincoln Speedway postponing its 410 Sprint Car races from this Saturday to Sunday, a unique race fan ‘double’ is in the offing this weekend for energetic and enthusiastic race fans.
“We’re inviting all of the race fans in Central Pennsylvania to come to the Battle of Trenton on Saturday night,” Len Sammons, event organizer said.
“And we are encouraging all of our TQ, Kart and Slingshot fans to head for Lincoln Speedway for their rescheduled season opener on Sunday.”
The unique opportunity will allow race fans to catch the last Indoor race of the off-season and the first Outdoor race of the 2016 outdoor season in the northeast.
The Battle Of Trenton is the third and final race of the Len Sammons Motorsports Productions (LSMP) Indoor Racing Series presented by VP Racing Fuels. The series played to a sold-out crowd in Allentown, PA on January 2nd. The next stop was Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall where Anthony Sesely took top honors. The series point championship will now be decided this weekend at the Sun National Bank Center.
While 68 TQ Midget teams have registered, just four drivers have a true shot at the Series point championship going into the climactic “Battle of Trenton”, a 40 lap finale to be held on that Saturday night. N.J.’s Anthony Sesely leads Ontario, Canada’s Mike Lichty by just one point. With points awarded for fast time, Friday night’s qualifying races and Saturday’s A-Main every position in every race will count. Sesely, Lichty, Ransomville, NY’s Erick Rudolph and Howell, NJ’s Jimmy Blewett could each go into Saturday’s A-Main with the opportunity to win the championship.
A complete program of qualifying events and a feature event will be also held for the Slingshots on Saturday which will decide the Slinger Warehouse Indoor Series title. Access to the pre-race trackside Saturday Fanfest is included with admission for Front Row or Lower Level Reserved Seats for Saturday ticket holders. All families with a young child will also be invited to Fanfest.
A third day of the Battle Of Trenton is on Sunday, Feb. 28 dedicated to Quarter Midget racers and Micro Stocks. The front doors are closed for this event, but admission is available through the back gate pit area entrance.
Tickets are available online at www.comcastix.com or by phone at 1-800-298-4200. Tickets may also be purchased at the Sun National Bank Center Box Office. All ticket prices do not include a $2 facility charge; ticket prices increase $5 for tickets purchased on the day of the events.
