Inside Line Promotions – FINDLAY, Ohio (Dec. 31, 2014) – The Renegade Sprints will tackle legendary Selinsgrove Speedway twice during the 2015 season.
The big track – listed as a half mile around the inside rail – in Selinsgrove, Pa., will host the 410ci sprint car series on Sunday, May 24, for the 4th annual Ray Tilley Classic and on Saturday, Sept. 19, during the $10,000-to-win Jim Nace Memorial 33rd annual National Open.
“We’ve been hearing a lot of positive feedback about the Renegade Sprints,” Selinsgrove Speedway Track Announcer and Publicity Director Steve Inch said. “It has been gaining a lot of traction. We’ve talked to a lot of people in Pennsylvania. (Renegade Sprints President) Shane Helms has a great reputation. We’re really excited to work with him and his group in this inaugural season for the Renegade Sprints.”
The marquee events are two of the biggest held at Selinsgrove Speedway, which has been open since 1946.
“Ray Tilley is the all-time feature winner at Selinsgrove,” Inch said. “We established that race the year after he passed away. We thought that’d be a good event to put the Renegade Sprints on.
“We’re hoping the Jim Nace Memorial 33rd annual National Open can become one of the crown jewel events of the Renegade Sprints. It is one of the speedway’s biggest races. We’re excited to be able to sanction the National Open again for the first time since 1990. I think that will be a real positive addition for this year’s race.”
Helms, who is finalizing the 2015 Renegade Sprints schedule, said he’s excited for the series to add the memorial races.
“Selinsgrove Speedway has a great tradition and history,” he added. “It’s a big deal for the Renegade Sprints to be a part of that. We are more than thrilled to have Selinsgrove Speedway on the schedule next year.
“I also want to thank Matt Miley at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, who has been a tremendous supporter of the Renegade Sprints. Matt gave up one of his dates so that we could make everything work and I think that speaks volumes about his character.”
The Renegade Sprints series was formed in 2014 to develop and improve the sport of 410ci sprint car racing in the rich historic region that includes Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Michigan. The series aims to operate a professional organization that is focused on creating value for sponsors and promoters along with offering an affordable form of high-quality entertainment for the fans. The Renegade Sprints is also dedicated to creating long-lasting partnerships with the team owners and drivers for the future of the sport.

The 2015 Northeast racing season will jump into high gear with the annual Selinsgrove Speedway Race of Champions Ice Breaker VIII on Saturday, March 14. The Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour will be center stage with the Race of Champions Dirt Sportsman teams sharing the two division spotlight.
The Saturday-only format is a change for the annual Selinsgrove RoC Ice Breaker, which in the past has been a two-day show. This year’s event will carry a rain date of Sunday, March 15, if needed.
The Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour will open their 2015 season in the $5000-to-win feature event which always draws a stellar field from the Northeast. Past Ice Breaker Modified winners have included Pennsylvanian Rick Laubach (2008), New Yorkers Danny Johnson (2009, 2011) and Matt Sheppard (2010), and New Jersey’s Billy Pauch (2012). The weather came out on top the last two years by forcing the cancellation of the race.
Race of Champions Tour Director Andrew Harpell remarked,"We are extremely excited about the Ice Breaker at Selinsgrove Speedway. The rich history of the facility combined with the modern updates that Charlie Paige has put into the property makes it one of the premier destinations for the Race of Champions Tour."
Reinforcing that comment, the RoC Dirt Sportsman competitors have been added to this year’s Ice Breaker, marking their first-ever appearance at Selinsgrove Speedway. There should be a big field of the top Northeast Sportsman teams in competition for the RoC Tour lid lifter on the big, one-half mile oval as the event should bring more participants from Pennsylvania and New Jersey to challenge for the $1,200 first-place prize.
Last season the North, South and Overall RoC Sportsman titles were hotly contested with Claude Hutchings Jr. taking the North as well as the Overall Final Point Championships over Brad Walters while Walters won the South title over Hutchings. Butch Green and Randy Shantel provided strong competition for these two and filled the next spots in the final tallies.
Returning sponsors for the 2015 Icebreaker include Lenny Krautheim Auto Sales, Middleburg, PA (former winning driver in both 358 and 410 sprint cars); Keith Sweigart Electric, Reading, PA; Penske Racing Shocks, Reading, PA; GME Steering Products, New Ringgold, PA; Holiday Inn Express, Selinsgrove, PA; Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships; Insinger Performance, Dushore, PA; Reaction Graffix, New Buffalo, PA; Reid's Tannery, Skippack, PA; Selinsgrove (PA) Hotel (Official Icebreaker Party Headquarters) and JGK Motorsports, Mt. Carmel, PA.
The Holiday Inn Express at 651 Susquehanna Trail in Selinsgrove is again the official hotel for the Icebreaker. Event rates are available by calling (570) 743-9275 by asking for Connie Buck, Manager.
The Race of Champions Dirt Tours are powered by Sunoco Race Fuels and Insinger Performance along with American Racer Tires and the Lias Racing Division. For more information please phone the Race of Champions offices at 607-775-5555 or log on to www.rocdirt.com.
