FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lincoln Speedway Simply Can’t Wait; Moves Up “Ice Breaker 30” to February 20th;

2021 Season Features 32 Race Dates, Tractor & Truck Pulls, Monster Trucks, Club Nights & More

Abbottstown, PA (December 24, 2020) – The 2021 season schedule for Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway features its two premier sprint car divisions, the 410 and 358 sprints with a total of 32 appearances between the two divisions. After success in 2020, Lincoln will also feature tractor and truck pulls again in 2021 along with a Monster Truck Show. New to the schedule for the upcoming season are the PA Karting Grand Nationals.  

Lincoln Speedway will host 14 different divisions during its 69th season, highlighted by 30 dates for the 410 sprints and 16 dates for the 358 sprints. The 410 sprints will start their season with the $5,000-to-win “Ice Breaker 30” on February 20th instead of the previously announced date of February 27th. The 358 sprints will hit the clay for the first time on March 20th. Both sprint car divisions will end their season on October 16th at Lincoln’s “Night of Champions.” Once again, the points battle will run until the final race of the season. Both sprint car divisions will be featured in the Inaugural Barry Skelly Memorial on August 21st. The entire 2021 schedule is available online at www.lincolnspeedway.com/schedule and at the end of this release.


The midgets will return to Lincoln twice in 2021 under the sanction of a revamped ARDC. You can catch them in the Pigeon Hills on June 5th and July 17th.

As part of their tour in 2021, the Super Sportsman will make two trips to Lincoln. They will be in action on May 8th and June 19th.

The USAC East Coast Sprint Cars will make an appearance at Lincoln on June 5th.

On July 3 Lincoln is hosting a “Party in the Pigeon Hills.” The Family Fun Day is highlighted by the return of the Renegade Monster Trucks and will also include fireworks, live music, food trucks and kids activities.

Along with the new additions to the schedule, many familiar and popular dates will be back for 2021. The 18th Annual Weldon Sterner Memorial is slated for April 17th and will pay $6,900 to win. The World of Outlaws return to take on the PA Posse in the “Gettysburg Clash” on May 12th. Fallen Firefighters Night is slated for June 12th. Lincoln will host two PA Speedweek shows with the first on June 26th and the second on June 28th. The All-Star Circuit of Champions make two trips to the 3/8th mile oval with their first stop on August 28th for the $7,300 to win “Kramer Klash”. The All-Stars return on September 18th for the $20,000-to-win “Dirt Classic VIII.”

The 410 Sprints will race weekly for $4,000 to win, with a minimum of $400 to start the feature. There are eight dates on the 2021 schedule that offer more than the weekly purse to win.

In addition, there will be special shows featuring kids “Big Wheel” racing, fireworks, and several auto racing “club” nights.

Located in Abbottstown, PA, the 3/8th-mile high-banked clay oval has been a staple in professional auto racing for 68 years. The Pigeon Hills oval is one of several famed Central Pennsylvania race tracks which represent the toughest, most competitive weekly sprint car racing in the nation. A family fun night to be had by all who visit the famed Lincoln Speedway!
