    Lancaster Motor Speedway will host the first Phillip Knight Memorial Race on Saturday.

    Phillip Knight is my late father, and his race comes a day before my birthday.

    Lancaster, after dropping a rain-shortened 14-0 League V loss to York at home on Monday night, rebounded to battle Post 66 in the five-run loss.

  • Huey looking for repeat BROLM win

    The popular Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Model Series will be back at Lancaster Motor Speedway on Saturday night.

    Nance crossed the checkered flag in first, but after the post-race inspection by Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Models Series owner Jason Smoot, Nance was disqualified.
