    Racing April 8th is Moved To SUNDAY APRIL 9th
    This Saturday Moves To SUNDAY
    April 6, 2017 by Eric Williams

    (Mercer, PA. April 6, 2017) The managment of Mercer Raceway Park has decided to postpone Saturday’s race until Sunday, April 9th, due to the amount of rain and snow expected on top of the already saturated conditions. Saturday’s weather forecast looks dry and sunny however, with low temperatures drying the facility out in time to race is not possible. In an effort to get the season underway for our dedicated fans, drivers, and great marketing partners we are going to run the program on Sunday. Gates will open at 3:00, drivers meeting (open to anyone with a pit pass) at 4:30 with hot lap/time trials starting at 5:00. We will start earlier with our goal being to conclude the events by 9 PM. We greatly appreciate everyone’s support in making this a success and look forward to capitolizing on a beautiful spring day for some great racing. Due to the late announcement of this decision we are NOT going to start the points battle until April 15th.

    We are going to make this a fun afternoon of racing with some extra incentives on the line for all of the competitors. Each hard charger in the feature events will receive a $25 Big Daddy’s Speed Shop gift certificate. Big Daddy’s Speed Shop will be the primary track side sales dealer on hand for the 2017 season. Precise Racing Products has thrown a $20 gift certificate into the mix as an added bonus to fastest qualifier. Dan Holtgraver, owner of West View Motors in Pittsburgh, has added $50 to the feature winner of the 410 sprint division. Alternative Power Sources, Inc., Gibsonia PA, will pay $100 to the 410 team that travels the furthest for this Sunday’s event.

    Furthermore to help bring some new talent into the 358 modified division we are welcoming all “602 crate legal” modifieds to the party. Shaffer Family Racing along with divisional sponsor, Turn 4 Toilets, will offer up a $100 bonus to the highest finishing crate legal engine in the feature event.

    To build on the continued success of our 305 sprint car division we have restructured the 2017 purse to help attract more competitors. For this weekend the 305 sprint car division is open to all sealed engine packages as well. For compliance

    Admission for the Sunday program will be just $13 for adults, $11 for seniors (60+), and $5 for students (ages 9-15). The youngsters (ages 8 and under) will be free, as always at Mercer Raceway Park. The economical Family Pass will be only $28, and that is good for two adults and up to four minors of any age. Pit Passes will be $30.

    Remember that you can get alerts regarding the cancellation of any racing event at Mercer Raceway Park sent directly to your smartphone or other electronic device. To register, please go to the track’s website,, click on the icon for, and follow the easy steps.

    its where im going sunday since its only 1 hour away instead of the 3 it takes to get to atomic. I cant miss work Monday since I just scheduled 10 days off for the doty, silver cup, speedweek, and etc... Mercer is good fan friendly place to go watch races. You can take your cooler in which is always a plus these days. Tracks under new management also this year so hopefully they can get back on track and turn things around from the bad luck/weather cancellations in the beginning of last year that really hurt car counts. Racing is always good and its different style track.
