    Cool Lanco's Labor Day Shootout Set For This Saturday & Sunday, 9/2 & 9/3...

    The end-of-season big races are looming on the not-so-distant horizon, and they kick off with this weekend's Labor Day Shootout at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway!

    This Saturday and Sunday, September 2nd and 3rd, is the annual Labor Day Shootout at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway. Saturday's program is a "wing thing", as the five weekly divisions compete as they normally do with the wings bolted onto their roll cages. For all divisions with more than 24 entries, the qualifying format will be similar to that of the Chili Bowl, with heats and A-Qualifiers that award passing/finishing points. Alphabet mains will be used as last-chance qualifying races, and all five features will run a distance of 30 laps. If the 600's and/or 270's pull a field of 40 or more cars, the A-Main victor will pocket $1,000!

    On Sunday, September 3rd, the 600's and 270's will leave their wings at home. It'll be wild and wingless, with a format just like that of Saturday if there are more than 24 entries in either class. Forty or more entries also means a $1,000 payday for the winner(s). Joining the wingless 600's and wingless 270's on Sunday will be the All Star Slingshots in their third appearance of the season at the Clyde.

    Gates open at 2 p.m. on both days of the Shootout. Pill draw ends at 3:30 and a driver's meeting will be held at that time. Warm-ups get underway at 3:45, and the first heat race takes the green at 4:30.

    Adult general admission is $10 each day, with a $4.00 discount for Senior Citizens and Students. Youth between the ages of six and 12 are just $2.00, and children under the age of six are free. Pit passes are $30 per person per day. Car entry is $60/car/class. There is no pre-registration required.

    There are a limited number of camping spaces available for the Labor Day Shootout weekend; the camping fee is $25 per space for the entire weekend. Advanced reservations are needed in order to camp at the track. Campers will be allowed to move in after 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 31. To reserve a camping spot, please contact Chris Snyder at

    Plenty of invaders always make their way to the Clyde for the Labor Day Shootout. It's great racing combined with the party of the year at the Newmanstown oval, so don't miss out...join us and LIVE the excitement that is Lanco and the annual Labor Day Shootout!

    It should be noted that Saturday's card of Lanco's "five weekly divisions" includes the 600's, 270's, Sportsman (250cc Stock), 125cc, and 250cc Four-Stroke Micros!
    No points to worry about this weekend (although Lanco members get 50 "show up" points if their car is entered on Saturday), so come on out, race, and enjoy the Labor Day Shootout!
