Legends Cars, and Sidewinder Sprints. There
is no entry fee for any division racing at the Candy
Bowl. The raindate will be Sunday, October
26 with the same time schedule.
Before the PA Sprint Car feature begins, the cars
and drivers in all divisions will be brought to the
frontstretch for the children in costumes to trick
or treat. This will also be a great opportunity for
everyone to visit their favorite drivers to get
pictures and autographs.
The open comp Sportsman Modified race
will follow the generally accepted Sportsman
Modified rules throughout local tracks in
Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York (no 4 bbl
carbs permitted). Sail panels are permitted and the
minimum weight rule will be 2,450 lbs for cars with
aluminum wheels and 2,375 lbs for cars with steel
wheels. The 20-lap feature will pay $1,000 to the
winner and $100 to start.
The wingless Midgets will compete under the National
recognized Midget Rules and the 20-lap feature will
pay $1,000-to-win ($100 to-start), thanks to an
anonymous sponsor adding monies to the winnerís
share. There is no entry fee for the event as
normally charged for sanctioned races.
The open competition 600cc Micro Sprints has been
replaced with the ACMS Stock 600cc Micro Sprints as
to not conflict with the Lindaís Speedway National
Open on the same day. Past Candy Bowl winners that
include Cody Darrah and Brent Marks have gone on to
current successful 410 Super Sprint Car careers.
Others who have added a Candy Bowl victory to their
resumes include Ben Murphy, Jimmy Brookens, Heath
Henley, Shane Lewis. Last year, Tyler Walton became
the first driver to capture the 600cc Micro Sprint
portion of the Candy Bowl twice.
