358 Sprint Car Summer Series and $5K to win Modified feature this Friday, May 24th at Big Diamond

This Friday, May 24th will be the third leg of the Modified Month of Money at Big Diamond Speedway as the Quandel Concrete Modifieds will race 25-laps for $5,000 to win. The two $5,000 to win features run so far have been won by Jeff Strunk and Eddie Strada. 2020 Big Diamond champion Mike Gular is the current leader in the chase for the 2024 championship with a ten-point lead over last week’s winner Eddie Strada. Gular has been strong each week and will be looking to add his name to the list of drivers who have won this year against the talented field of drivers that compete every Friday night at the Schuylkill County dirt oval.

Joining the racing card this Friday will be the 358 Sprint Cars as part of their 2024 Summer Series. The 358 Sprint Cars were scheduled to compete on two occasions last year, but Mother Nature intervened both times. The 358 Sprint Cars put on great racing and the Big Diamond fans will be thrilled to finally get to see them compete on Friday night. Quandel Concrete will offer $100 bonuses for the quick time in Hot Laps along with $100 for the winner of each heat race plus another $100 for the feature Hard Charger.

The USS Achey, Inc. 602 Crate Sportsman will be in action on Friday night displaying their competitive brand of racing. Jax Yohn (2) and Joe Toth have both visited victory lane this season and will be looking to add to their totals. Yohn, by virtue of his two wins and a seventh-place finish is the current points leader over last week’s winner Joe Toth. 2023 champion Jordan Henn has gotten off to a somewhat slow start but has looked stronger each week in his request to repeat. The USS Achey 602 Crate Sportsman will race a 21-lap main event on Friday.

After a week off, the Red White and Blue Autos Roadrunners return to action this Friday night with their exciting brand of wheel-to-wheel action in a 21-lap feature event. Chuck Fayash, Alex Schoffstall and Jarod Bassininsky have all won features in 2024. Despite not having a win so far in 2024, Andrew Fayash leads the race for the championship and will be looking to pick up his first win of the young season.

The 21-lap features are in memorium of Michael Mislyan, who was a former crew member for Roadrunner drivers CJ Ferguson and TJ Fitzpatrick, as well as 602 Crate Sportsman driver, John McGeoy.
