LSS Racing Roundup

By Michael Knight


The South Eastern Crate Association (SECA) is proud to welcome Lancaster Speedway to the SECA family for the 2014 racing season.

The rich racing history and memories of the “Fastest half mile dirt track in the South” date as far back to the opening year of 1954.

Doug McManus took ownership of the facility in 2000, and he has since been able to preserve those memories while etching new ones while under his management. Excitement fills Lancaster Speedway on Saturday nights, and once those engines fire, the excitement will not stop until the last flag has flown each week.

“Talk about exciting? Have you ever heard of Brandy or Timbo? Those fans at Lancaster are what this sport is about. It is hard to find the dedication and passion that they bring with them each week. Doug, Bruce Arrants and the staff do a great job to provide a great weekly racing program for each fan and the drivers. We are honored to become just a small part of the well known tradition there, looking forward to the start of 2014!” said Timmy Mcabee, co-owner of SECA. “The addition of Lancaster Speedway allows SECA members to try something different as some just want to go fast. Where better to do that than on the big half mile?”

“We like what SECA brings to their drivers, and they have proven themselves to look out for our weekly programs in this area,” Doug McManus said.  “We believe the partnership will benefit both our race teams and our fans, as the layout and formula of the SECA program makes complete sense for our area.”

Drivers choosing to sign up with SECA will collect City Chevrolet Weekly Championship points at Lancaster Speedway.

The 2013 SECA Weekly Championship presented by City Chevrolet paid an impressive $7500 to the winner.

The top 15 races will be counted toward the final standings, and the 2014 championship.

Approved tire compounds for SECA sanctioned tracks are Hoosier HTS spec 1350 and Hoosier HTS spec 1600.
