PASS ready to start season at Path Valley 

By Frank Buhrman

SPRING RUN, Pa. (March 28, 2024) – The 26th annual season of IMCA RaceSaver competition with the River Valley Builders Pennsylvania Sprint Series will take the green flag Saturday, March 30 at everybody’s favorite bullring, Path Valley Speedway.

The RaceSaver sprints will join 270 and 600 micro sprints, limited late models, 4-cylinder thunder cars, and modifieds. For a cooler-weather date, times are earlier as gates open at 2 p.m. with warm-ups at 4 p.m. The first heat race will start after warm-ups. PASS competitors will run qualifying heats, a consolation race if needed, and a 25-lap feature.

Adult general admission is just $10 ($3 for kids 10 and under). Pit admission is $30, plus a $5 membership fee for first-time visitors.

2023 PASS champion Logan Spahr of Lewisberry will be among nine of last season’s top 10 drivers expected to be on hand for a full field. Spahr, points runner-up Zach Rhodes of McVeytown and Kruz Kepner of Kreamer, who finished ninth in the standings, were three of last year’s four winners at Path Valley.

Built in 1987, Path Valley is not the oldest track PASS runs by any means, but it has run the sanctioning body longer than any other speedway, having missed only PASS’s first year, 1999. More than 200 RaceSaver races have been run at the track.

Next week, River Valley Builders PASS will make up October’s Keystone RaceSaver Challenge, aka The Blue Collar Classic at Port Royal Speedway. This year the 410 sprints also will be part of the program.

PASS is dedicated to the heritage of RaceSaver with stable and enforceable rules, consistent rules application, and fair purse distribution, paying 24th place one half of first place.
