This Saturday July 20 2024, Michaels Mercer Raceway will be honoring the Michaels family who is in their 2nd tenure of ownership at the historic speedway along with the 410 sprint cars paying $3000 to win as well as the BRP modified tour paying $3000 to win.

Our regular divisions the Racesaver 305 sprints, 602 crate modifieds and the mini stocks will also highlight the card.

the 410s will qualify for heat race positions and the big block modifieds will be run by the BRP modified tour.

A large amount of 410 sprints are expected with no other track running them within a two hour radius.

There will also be kids bicycle races where at intermission the youngsters will have a chance to race on the speedway in age -grouped events. Power wheels and tricycles will have separate races. Helmets are required by Pennsylvania law.

The kids club will also return with 6 lucky children being driven down with the pits to view the race cars up close along with the drivers that will begin at 5:45. Each child under 16 will get a ticket as they come in the gate and we will draw six lucky winners at 5:30. We will draw one more ticket at intermission for the Mercer kid of the night as they will be down in victory Lane with every winning driver.

The Michaels family have been involved in racing since the 1970s as patriarch of the family Howard owned cars that ran at Mercer throughout the years. Howard and the family were also instrumental with rebuilding the race track in 1994 after being left for dead after the 1989 racing season. They sold the track after the 1996 season and son Harold Michaels competed in the small block modified/big block modified division for many years in the 1990s. In 2019 Howard’s son Ed along with his brother Earl Repurchased the facility and continues the rich tradition at the historic speedway.

Pit admission will be $35 and $30 for seniors and Kids under 10 $30
Grandstand admission $18 Adults $16 for seniors and kids under 10 free.

Pit gates will open at 4 PM
Grandstand will open at 5 pm

All drivers must have working raceivers and use the red ambit transponder system. The yellow units will not work.

Concessions will be open. Coolers must fit between the bleachers with no glass. Alcohol is permitted. Lawn chair seating is permitted in the grassy area by the fence. We are a cash or credit facility at all locations.
