SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Selinsgrove Speedway will host the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series for the first time in 50 years next season as part of the annual Eastern Storm tour.

In addition, the USAC Silver Crown Series will also return to the track after a successful return this year.

The USAC Eastern Storm tour will visit Selinsgrove Speedway on June 17. The 30-lap, $6,000-to-win USAC Eastern Storm event will be the first USAC 410 sprint car race at the track in 50 years.

Mitch Smith won the only other USAC sprint car race ever contested at Selinsgrove Speedway on July 17, 1971.

The USAC Silver Crown Series will return for the second running of the Bill Holland Classic, which has been scheduled for Aug. 8. The anniversary special will go 75 laps in distance and will pay $8,075 to the winner.

Shane Cottle won the inaugural Holland Classic in August.

“After a great Silver Crown event this season, we are very happy to expand our relationship with Selinsgrove Speedway in 2021,” said USAC Executive Vice President & National Series Director Levi Jones.

“All of us at USAC are excited to showcase all the best that USAC has to offer at the historic track next season. We already know how exciting Silver Crown is at Selinsgrove and for sure the USAC sprints will really kick it up at that big place too.”
