Saw on the ad that Baps Speedway will finally join Pa. Speedweek with the opener on Thursday then on to the Grove. Only one race at Lincoln this year two at Port and the Grove Monday a day off . Lets hope more travelers come in this year to keep the excitement going from last year.

Also big announcement about World Series of Racing weekend at Selinsgrove in October.

I dont get all the news from Sprint Car Unlimited I am sure Gators would know all the details about Speedweek and Baps Speedway

Seems this board has lost most of its gusto since Gators left heck even Altman has been absent for a long time.

I guess Port will miss the whole thing because they claim to have Speedweek races on July 4 & 7.

The 2018 schedule has not been released yet. What your seeing on Pa Posse facebook page is from 2016.

Yea , all I see on FB page is "PAPosseRacing.com does not have any upcoming events."

Unless I'm missing something....

From their website:     "Berkheimer was letting Gobrecht know that BAPS was on board to purchase the naming rights to Susquehanna Speedway. Two months of ironing out the logistics on a five-year deal with a five-year option followed, and BAPS Motor Speedway was born.

            The landmark deal makes the Newberrytown facility the lone dirt track in the East with corporate involvement through naming rights and only the third in the entire country. The other two are Lucas Oil Speedway and Kenny Schrader’s Federated Auto Parts Speedway at I-55, both of which are in Missouri."

Good news cause after my first visit there last year for USAC midgets. might be my fave track in Pa. Good racing, maybe 10 or 15 minutes from Pinchot State park, go for a swim, easy cruise to the races

I'm surprised there hasn't been a post on here about this BAPS situation. Which I think it is a good one BTW. The name is gonna take some getting used to, but by year number 5 I think all of us are in for a real treat.  The reason for that is, if they're gonna call something a motor speedway, they're going to have to make it look like a motor speedway. Which means by the end of that 5th year, I fully expect BAPS to have real concrete walls around the whole track. (not jersey barriers). Nice catch fences all around, Whelen safety lights, new scoreboard,  suites, clay, the whole nine yards. I really expect it to look like a Charlotte, or a Jackson.  Otherwise calling it a motor speedway is just dumb.  Now if we can just get more than 22 cars to show up, we'll be set.

I sure am wrong about the dates I dont know why they would have posted an old schedule but definitely right about the World Series at Selinsgrove shold be a great weekend all around with Port Friday Baps or Susquehanna on Saturday and Selinsgrove Sunday or all weekend if you like a variety.

Baps paid for the naming rights plus sponsor several cars in the area so they deserve to have it called Baps.

Guess I will have to join Gators they I can beleive everthing I see!!!!!
