Jack Gunn Memorial “Down Under” Friday At Williams Grove Speedway

  PASS 305 sprints join the fun





Mechanicsburg – Williams Grove Speedway will present the 33rd annual Jack Gunn Memorial for the Lawrence Chevrolet 410 sprint cars this Friday night, September 4 at 7:30 pm.


The 2015 event, run in honor of the late Promoter Of The Year as it has every year since 1983, will be conducted using a format similar to that used in most if not all Australian sprint car races.


The 30-lap Jack Gunn Memorial “Down Under” will offer $6,000 to win the 30-lap main event out of a total purse worth nearly $30,000 in total. 


Time trials will set heat starting grids and every driver will compete in two heat events with points earned from heat performances helping to formulate a dash lineup and a feature lineup.   


Fireworks will also be part of the special event that is the next to last leg of the 2015 Hoosier Diamond Series for the sprints at Williams Grove. 


The PASS 305 sprints are also on the special Friday night program along with a chance for any and all comers to take a ride on a mechanical shark that will be set up in the infield.


Rides are free for all fans.  


Adult general admission for the special show is just $16 with youth ages 13 – 20 admitted for just $10.


Kids ages 12 and under are always admitted free at Williams Grove Speedway!   


Williams Grove will donate its portion of the 50/50 drawing on the night to Members 1st Run For Kids, which donates its proceeds to the Childrens Miracle Network.   


The Gunn Memorial race has been run annually every year since 1983 in honor of the late, great, nationally recognized 1979 Promoter Of The Year Gunn, who not only guided ovals like Williams Grove to worldwide fame but who also at times during his career held the reigns of tracks like Penn National, Selinsgrove and Hagerstown, Md.


Over the years only the sports most elite drivers have driven to victory in the prestigious event.


Names like Bobby Allen, Doug Wolfgang, Dave Blaney, Kenny Jacobs, Don Kreitz Jr., Frankie Kerr, Lance Dewease, Stevie Smith, Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman all dot the event win list.


Lucas Wolfe is the defending Gunn Memorial champion.


Williams Grove Speedway will return just two nights later with the running of the Billy Kimmel Memorial on Sunday evening, September 6 at 7:30 pm.


The show will feature the 410 sprints and the HJ Towing & Recovery 358 sprint cars.
