The PCR season will open with the BST Spring Break Bash Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Phillips County Fairgrounds raceway in Holyoke. It is anticipated that the final checker will fall by 6-6:30 p.m.
The afternoon racing is packed and filled with six divisions. On tap will be the BST dirt car late models, BST/IMCA mod stocks and sport mod tours, hobbies and dwarfs.
For a special fan appreciation driver meet and greet, the pits will be open to the public from 1-2 p.m. This is available to all who purchase a grandstand admission for the day.
Spectators are invited to see their favorite driver up close and personal, to take pictures and obtain autographs. They can watch the drivers get ready for the afternoon’s entertainment.
