Tommy Classic Launches Diamond Series Friday At Williams Grove

Sprints race for 8K to win in 30 lap tribute

Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic on Seifert Concrete Night coming up this Friday evening, April 21 at 7:30 pm.

The Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars will race in the Tommy Classic, going 30 laps for $8,000 to win.

A program of street stock racing will accompany the sprint cars on the card.

Fast Tees Screenprinting of Thompsontown will pay $300 to the fast qualifier in time trials.

The annual Tommy Classic will be the first race of the season in the Hoosier Diamond Series at Williams Grove.

The race is meant to honor Tommy Hinnershitz, known as “The Flying Dutchman,” from Oley, Pennsylvania, who holds the distinction of winning the first ever race held at historic Williams Grove Speedway back on May 21, 1939.

Brent Marks of Myerstown is the defending Tommy Classic winner having taken the victory in an All Stars event last season.

The late Craig Keel won the first Tommy race in 2007.

No one has won more Tommy Classic races than Lance Dewease who is a three-time victor.

So far this season with only two sprint car events in the book at Williams Grove, only Zeb Wise and Dewease have taken wins.
