Evergreen Opens Pre Registration for “Independence” Enduros

By: Gene Ostrowski

June 18, 2017

St. Johns, PA (6/18/2017) Evergreen Raceway is happy to announce that pre registration is open for their third regular season Evergreen Enduro Series event, presented by Sponenberg’s Exhaust. The popular series features bone stock Enduro racing for both the Four Cylinder and 6/8-Cylinder divisions and this event is on tap for an event under the lights on Saturday, July 8. The Bob’s Subs & Pizza Outlaw Stocks are also on the card, along with the Atlantic Coast Old Timers.

Points are awarded for the shows and the series points are currently up to date on the speedway website.

The Enduro events will take place, rain or shine and the Outlaw Stock and old timers portion of the event will be rescheduled if the weather does not cooperate for their portion of the show. The Enduro portion of the event will only be postponed if the weather simply too miserable on race day.

Enduro drivers can save $10 by pre-registering. The pre-registration fee is $40 per event. If drivers are not pre-registered on race day, the fee to compete is $50. Pre registration is non-refundable if a driver pre registers and is unable to make the event. Enduro pre registration will only be refunded if the speedway postpones the event.

Upon arrival at the track, drivers will pull pills for their starting positions. All pre-registered drivers will start ahead of those who were not pre-registered. All drivers must visit the track office to sign in upon arrival to the track. Each driver will receive a slip with their starting position. A random roll call will take place at the drivers meeting. If a driver’s name is called and they are not present, they will be forced to start in the rear of the field. No exceptions.

The speedway had implemented a new rule, which will take effect for the Independence Enduro event. The winner of the previously held show will start from dead last, regardless if he or she is pre-registered or not.

Outlaw Stock drivers will pull pills for heat race starting positions and they will start straight up for the 30-lap feature.

The pit gates will swing open for all of the series events at 4 PM. The drivers meeting will take place at 5 PM and the Outlaw Stocks will have practice at 5:15 PM. Racing will kick off at 6:00 PM. The grandstands will open at 5 PM.

Grandstand admission for each event is just $5. Pit admission is $25 and the transponder rental fee is $10.

The rules, payout and pre-registration list are listed at EvergreenRacewayPark.com. The deadline for pre-registration is Thursday, July 6.

The Outlaw Stock purse is prorated (plus sponsorship money), based on the number of cars. Outlaw Stock tech inspection will be handled by Modified driver, Paul Frantz.

Evergreen Raceway is located minutes from Hazleton, PA, in between routes 93 and 309.
