SARVER, PA (93.7 The Fan) - Three track Championships are up for grabs tonight as Fab4 racing takes to the dirt at Lernerville Speedway.

In the Diehl Automotive Big Block Modified division four drivers have a mathematical chance at the title.  Two drivers are tied atop the standing going into tonight's action.  Seven-time Champion Brian Swartzlander and two-time Champion Rex King Jr both have 351-points.  Every point tonight will be crucial because Rex King is right behind in third place with 337-points and Dave Murdick sits in fourth place with 328-points.  This Championship won't be decided until the last lap.

Four drivers are in the hunt for the Millerstown Pic-A-Part DIRTcar/RUSH Pro Stocks Championship.  Tyler Dietz sits atop the points standing with 357-points.  Defending Champion Corey McPherson is in second place, only five points behind Dietz.  Joey Zambotti is in third place with 339-points, only 18-points out of the top spot.  Ryan Moyer sits in the fourth position with 326-points so he's not out of the title fight.

Three drivers are battling it out in the ultra-competitive Peoples Natural Gas Sprint Car division.  2016 Champion Jack Sodeman Jr. (pictured above) currently sits in first place, 11-points ahead of second-place Carl Bowser.  AJ Flick is six points behind Bowser and just 17-points out of the lead.  This is another Championship that has gone back and fourth all year and will not be decided until the final lap.

The only division that has been decided is the Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Model Series.  Ken Schaltenbrand locked up the track Championship last weekend but the battle tonight will be for spots two through six.  22-points separate sixth-place Kelvin Kohan from second-place Jared Miley, with Tyler Dietz in third place, Mike Miller in fourth place and Colton Flinner in fifth place.  It's anybody's guess how this will shake out as the racing in this division is fierce so you don't want to miss it.

The Lernerville Kids Club will be open and will be participating in a candy scramble and will also lead the crowd in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.  The Kids Club meets at 6:30 p.m. under the turn four grandstands and is free for all children.

Pits open at 4 PM with the grandstands opening at 5 PM.  Racing starts at 7:30 PM.

Adult general admission is $15, $12 for Seniors, $10 for students ages 11-17 and children 10 and under receive free admission.
