‘Gentlemen, Restart Your Engines:’ STO Crowd Expected Tonight for PA Speedway Races


Amid the on-going COVID-19 crisis, racing at a rural Susquehanna County speedway offers a break from TV sports reruns with a reopening to live racing.  It’s a major sign of reopening in Pennsylvania on this Memorial Day weekend, when a full-fledged racing season opens at a Susquehanna County track and the promoter expects standing room only. The green flag drops tonight at Penn Cam Speedway on Route 171 in Susquehanna and racing fans will be allowed in the stands to watch the opening night racing card.

Gary Folk Sr., of Owego, is the Penn Cam promoter … remember, this track is located in Pennsylvania. 


You can hear the full interview with Penn Cam promoter Gary Folk on our Race Week program on-the-air with WEBO’s Matt Lewis at 6:10 today … at Penn Cam tonight, pits open at 4pm, grandstand at 5, hot laps at 6:30 and racing at 7:15pm.
