By Frank Buhrman

SELINSGROVE, Pa. (Aug. 18, 2023) – The River Valley Builders Pennsylvania Sprint Series joins Tony Stewart’s Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions this Sunday at Selinsgrove Speedway to honor the memory of one of the region’s legendary sprint car drivers, Kramer Williamson, with the running of the Kramer Cup.

The IMCA RaceSaver sprinters will run qualifying events and a 20-lap feature in support of the All Star’s $10,000-to-win feature.

Coming off a super successful weekend that saw 41-car fields at both Lincoln and Bedford Fairgrounds Speedways, PASS will be looking for another strong turnout to turn heads among those on hand for the traveling All Stars.

Leading the group will be point leader Logan Spahr, who has won nine of the first 20 PASS features run this year and is looking at the possibility of setting a single-season victory record, set by Logan Wagner in 2013 and tied by Garrett Bard last season, with 12 wins each.

Spahr scored a dominating victory Sunday in the Junior Ritchey Tribute at Bedford, but he has a strong list of challengers, including two-time winners Austin Reed, Zach Rhodes, Kruz Kepner and Drew Young, and single-race winners Kenny Heffner and Dave Brown Jr.

All but Brown have indicated their intent to run Sunday, as have hometown ace Ken Duke and young Seth Schnoke, both of whom have been regular top finishers but have yet to score a victory this season. Any number of other drivers also will hit the track as potential winners.

Spahr, Reed, and Young have already earned Selinsgrove wins this season, with Spahr and Reed each having won twice.

Gates will open for Saturday’s program at 4 p.m., with racing set to start at 7 p.m. Adult general admission will be $30 ($15 for students; kids 12 and under free; $5 discount for age 65-plus), and pit admission will be $40 ($20 for age 10 and under).

A race initially scheduled for Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, Aug. 19) has been canceled by the track due to a scheduling conflict.

Next weekend the River Valley Builders PASS tour will return to Selinsgrove for a regular Saturday night program.
