SELINSGROVE -- Selinsgrove Speedway will present the Seventh annual Roadrunner 20 plus a complete program of 358 sprint cars, late models and pro stocks on Saturday.

Tentatively, time trials and a B-main will be the qualifying format for the roadrunner division's only extra-distance race of the season that pays $500 to win.

Ray Rothfuss, of Muncy, won the inaugural Roadrunner 20 in 2007. Other previous winners include Keith Bissinger of Orangeville (2008), Ricky Bender of Jolliett (2009), Scott Dunham Jr. of Selinsgrove (2010), Brad Mitch of McClure (2011) and defending winner Bob Bussey of Northumberland.

In the roadrunner standings, three-time winner John Fowler Jr. of Montandon leads defending champion and two-time winner Bussey by 90 points. Brian Johnson of Ashland, a two-time winner this season, is currently third.

Jason Shultz is the new 358 sprint car points leader after his win last week. Shultz, of Carlisle, won the title in 2004. He leads one-time 360 sprint car winner T.J. Stutts of Liverpool by 50 points.

In the late model standings, two-time winner Dylan Yoder of Selinsgrove holds a 40-point lead over six-time defending champion and two-time winner Jeff Rine of Danville.

The pro stock division continues to be a Tower City family affair between father and son as Troy Miller leads his son Shaun by 100 points. Two-time winner Kyle Bachman of Selinsgrove trails by 150 points in the third position.

GIVING BACK: The Williams Grove Speedway Race For Charity that was rained out last week will take place tonight at the historic oval. It will now include both the 410 and 358 sprint cars. The 25-lap 410 sprint car feature pays $4,000 to the winner.

SAYING THANKS: Port Royal Speedway will present a Salute To The Military on Saturday with free adult general admission to all members of armed forces, past or present, with identification. The track is presenting its regular three-division show of 410 sprint cars, late models and pro stocks. Next Tuesday's Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek also includes the 358 late models.
