358 Late Models take center stage at Williams Grove Speedway with the 5th annual $2,000 to win Topless 30 on Friday, September 11th… General admission will be only $6 for this 3 division event.
The roofs will come off as anticipation builds for the 5th running of the annual Topless 30 for 358 Late Models at the famed Williams Grove Speedway. The race will take place on Friday night, September 11th this year. Sponsorship and support is greater than ever for the event that has been the brain child of former driver Ken Riland. This year’s Topless 30 will pay a minimum of $2,000 to win and at least $200 to start thanks largely in part to MWG Transport, Inc. of Lebanon, Pennsylvania & Harbaugh Amusement Machine of Martinsburg, West Virginia. Williams Grove Speedway will pay the standard purse with extra money and incentives provided by Ken Riland and his sponsors.The Topless 30 once again will be using the Loco-Motives Appalachian Mtn. Speedweek format which will see group time trials set the stage for the competitive heat races. Miller Racing Parts of Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania will present the overall fast qualifier with $200 in cash for the quickest lap around the historic half mile. The 30 lap feature will start off with a 4 abreast salute to the fans, before the drivers get to business and battle for the $2,000 top prize. The Loco-Motives Appalachian Mtn. Speedweek will present the Hard Charger with a $200 cash award with a slight twist. The winner of the award will receive $100 in cash with the remaining $100 being donated to the Susan G Komen for the Cure Foundation in the hard chargers name, in memory of Linda Bigler (Ken & Beth Riland’s Daughter) who passed away from cancer a few years back.
Williams Grove Speedway will keep the Saturday night general admission of just $6 for this Friday night triple header as the Sportsman and Street Stocks join the topless 358 Late Models for an action packed night of racing. As always, kids twelve and under are free at “The Grove”.
Williams Grove Speedway and Susquehanna Speedway Park motor rules apply for this event with the tire rule being as follows:
A. Only Hoosier 1300 or harder or American Racer 44 or harder may be used during all Appalachian Mountain Speedweek events. This compound rule applies for all 4 corners of the race car and is in affect at all points of the program from and including Time Trials through and including the completion of the Feature.
B. All tires must punch/durometer a minimum of 40 at all times.
“I always look forward to this event” said organizer Ken Riland. “The 358 Late Models provide some of the best racing in the area and they do not get the attention they deserve. I want to thank Dan Little for all his help with this event as we are trying to obtain the necessary sponsorship to raise the start money even greater than the guaranteed $200 that is in place now. We have had some great help this year and I really need to thank Mike Gallagher (MWG Transport) and Bob Harbaugh (Harbaugh Amusement Machine) for what they are doing for this event. It is a whole great group of sponsors and people that have come together for this race. I am sure we will have more to announce in the next few weeks” added Riland.
