  • Shrine Race ready to roll...

    Lancaster Motor Speedway roars back into action with a Thursday night special this week.

    The annual Shrine Race, a LMS fixture for years, but absent from the track schedule for the past few seasons, is set to make a return Thursday night at the half-mile dirt oval.

    LMS fans and drivers have been asking for this race to return to Lancaster Motor Speedway for years.

    New track co-promoters Eric Caskey and Shannon Munn have listened and responded and the Shrine Race is headed back to the track.

    The Picks continue to be close.

    Four weeks and it’s down right tight.

    “Yep, a lot of gridiron gridlock,” Eric Rowell said. “It’s close, but I want to make it un-close.”

    Defending Picks champ “Dandy” Mandy Catoe is also getting in on the action, a close third with a 52-28 mark, four from the top.

    FORT MILL - A dominating defensive effort by the Nation Ford Falcons allowed them to get a 28-0 win over the Indian Land Warriors on a short week for both teams. 

    With little prep time for each, Indian Land (2-3) and Nation Ford (2-3) made the best of a short week as they played two days early to avoid any issue with Hurricane Florence barreling down on the Carolina coast.

    BOONETOWN – The Andrew Jackson Volunteers took their first 2018 loss, a 28-17 setback, to rival North Central High School on Wednesday night at the Knights’ field.

    The Region IV-AA opener for both teams was moved to Wednesday due potential weather problems from Hurricane Florence this weekend.

  • Cyclones sweep Bruins from...

    CHESTER – For the Lancaster Bruins, Hurricane Florence had an impact, but so did Cyclone Chester.

    Hurricane Flo, its powerful presence expected to be felt this weekend, was one factor, but the on-the-field beast was the Chester Cyclones.

    The unbeaten Cycs, 5-0 and ranked third in the latest Class AAA state media football poll, swept Lancaster from the unbeaten ranks Wednesday at the CHS field.

    Chester, starting fast and strong on both sides of the football, rolled to a 41-20 win over the Bruins.

  • Jackets rout CHS Rams

    The start of Buford’s 52-27 thrashing of the Chesterfield Rams was reminiscent of the previous week’s game against Parkwood High School.

    Buford had seven turnovers in the loss to the visiting Rebels, and on the opening kickoff, Jackets’ senior standout Justin Hayden was stripped of the ball and Chesterfield recovered at the BHS one-yard line.

    Two plays later, James McBride was in the end zone for a Rams’ touchdown. After the missed extra point, the Rams had an early 6-0 with 11:11 left in the first quarter.

  • Saturday race canceled, Shrine...

    Hurricane Florence is expected to drop heavy rain on Lancaster County this weekend.

    Lancaster Motor Speedway co-promoters Eric Caskey and Shannon Munn, with the forecast, have canceled the race for Saturday night.

    Fans, with the clear weather by midweek, can look to the track’s Shrine Race set for Thursday.

    Fans and drivers have been asking for this race to return to Lancaster Motor Speedway for years and years.

    Caskey and Munn have listened and the popular race is set.
