Sarver, PA (August 23,2018) Race to win. That is the key for four drivers on Friday night. The Fab4 Fueled by Turners Premium Iced Tea will be gracing The Action Track for the final time in 2018. And the regular season will go out with a bang on the track and off as Fireworks will be in store for the crowd on hand, courtesy of Butler County Tourism. Meanwhile, there are two divisions with track championships left to decide which may come down to the last set of turns before all is said and done.

Flick And Sodeman Jr. Race For All The Marbles

In the  Peoples Gas DIRTcar Sprints, it comes down to two drivers that would make more than deserving champions as AJ Flick will be looking to make it back to back titles while Jack Sodeman Jr. is vying for his second career Lernerville Championship having earned the honors in 2016. Currently, the lead is Flick’s and it’s a nine point advantage heading into racing on Friday night. It’s a deficit that can be a difficult one to overcome in one night. However, larger ones have been overcome in track history on the final night, and Sodeman will be more than up to the task at hand.

McPherson and Dietz Battle to the Wire

The season long battle in the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stocks between Corey McPherson and Tyler Dietz has been thrilling to say the least, and could very well leave those in attendance standing by the time the checkered flag falls in the 20 lap main event. The two drivers are separated by seven points and each driver has found Terry Bowser Victory Lane four times in 2018. The lead had been Dietz’s more often than not this season until he suffered mechanical gremlins on August 3rd and McPherson managed to take advantage of the misfortune by taking the main event win.

Two Champions Crowned In Amazing Seasons

Michael Norris and Rex King Jr. have had seasons to remember indeed. Norris managed to earn his second consecutive title in the Late Models, amassing seven feature wins in the process with a chance to earn nine wins before all is said and done.  Meanwhile, King Jr. took his first title since 2014, a year in which he won the championship at Lernerville, Sharon Speedway and also took the honors in the BRP Modified Tour standings as well. King has been the class of the Modified field in 2018, putting up five main event wins and finishing off the podium just once this season.
