Didn't Bloomsburg fairgrounds used to have midget races during fair week? I'm not sure if they ever had sprints. They still have figure 8 races and the world's largest demolition derby.
Yes. Back in the late 70's I remember attending an ARDC race there. I witnessed masses of people sitting in the first turn end of the grandstands get absolutely covered with the track surface during warm ups. Alot of peed off people.
Midgets at Bloomsburg in the late 70's were sanctioned by SMRC which was a group led by Dutch Shaeffer that broke away from ARDC.
There was a NASCAR Strictly Stock , now Nextel Cup, race there in 1953.
