Let me go through some of files. Here are the keystone results from the former Monongahela Speedway

1936 results – Keystone Racing Association Big Cars

1. Bill Chittum, Joe Baker, Johnny Meyer
2. Rain
3. Rain
4. July 25 Deb Snyder, Bill Chittum, Carl Lewis - Car goes into crowd injuring seven children
Local D.A. stops race due to blue law violation
5. August 8 Morris Musick, Johnny Wohlfeil, Gale Lower
6. Gale Lower, Jimmy Kniesley, Ben Emrick


1937 results

1. Big Cars: Shorty Drexler, Buddy Rusch
2. Joie Chitwood, Morris Musick, Buddy Rusch

1938 results

May 30 Big cars: Ammon Kelchner, Bub Walker, Mark Light
July 4: Bud Henderson, Jimmy Wilburn, Morris Musick

I know I have Henry Steiger winning a Penn Jersey race over Harry Harper at the brecknock Speedway in 1941

Penn Jersey took part in but did not officially sanction the York Fair big car race in 1941 won by Harry Harper

I am pretty sure I have some of the old Keystone paper work I just have to locate it. I do have the results from the Independent tracks such as Lebanon, Central and so on if you want those.

Thank you Stephen!

"I do have the results from the Independent tracks such as Lebanon, Central and so on if you want those."

Yes I am interested in all records.(e.g.:Independent track records in this era)

I've been heard these tracks were contact in this big car club in PA area:

Lehigton
Landisville
Hughesville
Clearfield
Bedford
Kutztown

and possible these:

Lackawanna
Pottsville/Cressona/Sckuylkill Haven
Bloomsburg
Latimore Valley Fair at York Spring
Lewisburg
York

and possible was an other club in NJ/PA area :

AMRA (Atlantic Motor Racing Association - NJ, PA)
1936 Dutch Culp
1937 Charlie Breslin
1938 Jack McNeal
1939 Jack McNeal

PA tracks were:
Hatfield
Scranton

Thanks all info!

not sure if it's the same Penn Jersey or not but Selinsgrove had Penn Jersey there from 1946-1949. I only have winners, no dates or run downs but am willing to research our local newspapers archives if you think it's the same group you're looking for. should do it anyways for our own archives. let me know. here's the winners

Paul Becker 3 wins, John Favinger, Ducky Pehlman and Mel Weidner 1 win each.

Is it Lewisburg or Lewistown? I believe AAA ran Lewistown. I saw one story many years ago about Racing at Lewisburg but didn't save it and have never found anything else about any races. I have a picture from Union County Historical Society and have spoken to an old timer that was there as a kid but didn't recall racing. BTW turns 3&4 are still there as are grandstand foundations.

there were also fairgrounds tracks in Milton, WILLIAMSPORT and Montgomery around the same time. Late 20's early 30's. Seems as the depression and 1936 flood killed them.

Glad to help. here are the results from Central Speedway at Bird In Hand. By the way, I know I can trust the gang on here but I have to put a claimer on the results I post. Twice I had a guy take stuff I posted and put it on another site claiming it was his own. Funny part was he left my notes on it so i knew he copied my stuff. After a couple of years I found the guy last year. My belief is history is for everyone and should not be kept by one person. But after the hours put in researching, it is heartbreaking to have someone steal your work. So on the stuff I post I will include "research property of Stephen Bubb" but that is only if someone steals it again. I know I can trust all you guys on here so you can ignore that!
