410 Sprint Show Continues to Grow at Latrobe SpeedwayJustin Dudek
LATROBE, PA (August 18, 2022) – The winner’s share for the 410 Sprint show, on August 27, continues to grow. Latrobe Mirror & Glass first put up $500 to make it a $3500 to win race. Dave’s Welding Service has stepped up and put another $1500 to the winner’s check. The 410 Sprints will now race for a record high paycheck, for Latrobe Speedway, of $5000 to the winner. Never in the history of the Latrobe Speedway has a winner’s share been that high. We are looking to attract a few drivers looking to score one of the bigger checks in the area for the 410’s.
Back in the late 70’s early 80’s the Sprints were a weekly Sunday show at Latrobe. JR Magruda was the promoter at the time. Drivers like Bobby Allen and Brad Doty have competed at the speedway. Last year the 410’s made their first visit since the early 2000’s as part of Fall Fest. Taking home the win was third generation driver Sye Lynch. A good field is expected and 20 drivers have indicated they are interested in making the tow to Latrobe Speedway for this event.
There will be qualifying for the 410’s.
It is an open tire rule and no mufflers are required.
The 410 Sprint Purse looks like this:
5000, 1400, 1000, 800, 700, 600. 525, 475, 450, 425, 400, 400, 375, 375, 350, 350, 325, 325, 325, 300, 300, 250, 250, 250. Tow money is 175 if more than 24.
