Two headline divisions, one big night.
On Friday, July 20, Georgetown Speedway returns to action with a huge event headlined by Sunoco Modifieds ($3,000 to win, 30 laps) and Super Late Models ($2,700 to win, 25 laps) all on one race night!
The night’s events are sponsored by Blue Hen Dispose-All located in Millsboro, Del.
Sunoco Modifieds are back on the banked half-mile oval for the first time in six weeks, with the most recent event having been held on June 1. Craig Von Dohren of Oley, Pa., is the season’s only repeat winner. Von Dohren won on March 16 to open the season and then picked up his second triumph of the year on June 1.
