Clean-up Help

We have been working very hard over the winter. A number of winter projects have been tackled while we are still working on others. We are hoping the saying stands “now that we have it, we won’t need to use it.” But in case we do, we have a completely refurbished scrubber back from Bortek Industries equipped with torches on the back.

Teen Racing

We are very excited to announce the “NEW” Teen Racing Series. This Series is designed for teenagers to be able to go down the track and race after they receive their WDRA license or just to continue to test n tune. Whichever they prefer. We have added the following dates of Wednesday April 24th , May 29th , June 26th , July 31st , August 28th and September 25th . These dates are specifically for TEEN RACERS ONLY.

WE ARE HIRING!

Our 2024 season is fast approaching and we are looking to grow our team.
Do you love the thrill of the adrenaline rush from fast cars of all kinds, from dragsters and drag cars, to motorcycles, classic and modern muscle cars, the smell of burning rubber and race fuels? If so, this would be the perfect seasonal job for you! Our race season runs from late March through mid November.

Business Advertising

Last week’s weather and sunshine has made the season feel that much closer. The weather boost seems to have led to an increased interest and inquiries about advertising at Keystone Raceway Park, so we thought this would be a good time to announce some information about sponsors and advertising. For the 2024 season, we are adding a feature for businesses to donate their gift cards and certificates as giveaways on race days. This is for all events – test n tunes, bracket racing days, and includes special events. This will be a great way to advertise your business for a very minimal investment.

February Giveaway

Welcome to February, and that means the season is creeping closer, but still has a ways to go. We are helping the winter go by a little quicker with our planned giveaways to our registered Trackside account members. Congratulations to Jonathan Grgic, randomly drawn as the winner of this 65” Phillips ultra HD Roku tv!

Discounts Ending

Our online store sale along with the discounted 1000′ club membership ends tonight at 11:59pm (EST). 1000′ club memberships will still be available at full price through the end of February, or until it sells out.

RIP HENRY

Henry, 6 years old, suffered a severe asthma attack that he could not recover from, devastating his family. While we do not know Henry, we learned he loved cars and trucks (including big trucks). David, Henry’s uncle, was asked to organize a final cruise to lead Henry from the church to his rest. If you have a cool car, truck, or rig, and would like to participate, please contact David Shevlin Jr, so he can update the funeral director. This is for Friday, February 2, 10:30am, Church Of The Open Door, 970 N Main St, Greensburg, PA, 5601. The cemetery is a fairly short ride from the church. The weather is looking dry and the rain has washed the salt away from the roads.
Our hearts are with Henry’s family, and we hope that some of our racing family are able to take the cover off of the hot rod and join in the cruise.

GIVEAWAYS!!

A friendly reminder to all spectators, crew members, and racers, encouraging you to sign up for your Trackside account.
Throughout 2024, during both the on and off seasons, giveaways will be drawn from Trackside accounts only.

SAVE THE DATES

If you follow Staging Light on Facebook (and you really should!), you saw Michael Beard’s post earlier this week to save three race dates.

With that said, Keystone Raceway Park is happy to announce a partnership with Staging Light for a 3 race series, with all 3 dates to be held here! The format of the events will be $10k/$20k/$10k, Friday-Sunday. The full flyer and race information will be finalized soon, but in the meantime, put those dates on your calendar!

Happy Thanksgiving

From all of us at Keystone Raceway Park, we wish you and your families a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving.

May you enjoy a wonderful day with friends and family, and may we all see each other at the track in 2024.
