Weekend Preview: Rumble at PPMS; Sprout Cossell Memorial Headline Weekend Action

Who’s ready for a rumble? Davey Johnson, Keith Barbara, Jared Miley and some other top super late model drivers from the area are. They won’t be duking it out in the pits mind you, but they will be on the track as the 8th annual Red Miley Rumble takes place Saturday night at Pittsburgh Pennsylvania’s Motor Speedway in Imperial, PA.

The 53 lap event will pay $5053, and perhaps then some, to the winner which should lure some top quality competition and a full field of cars.

Also on the card are RUSH crate late models, sportsman (stock), hobby stocks and young guns (4 cylinders).

The “monster half mile features some of the fastest action around and a wide, racy surface that lends itself nicely to three and four wide action. Adult tickets are just $20, gates open at 4PM, racing at 7 pm. for more information you can visit the PPMS website here: PPMS Main Website
