Early entries include three former World Champions
As the World Championship Weekend nears for the All Star and Junior Slingshots the pre registration for the event continues to grow. The list of pre entered drivers includes three former World Champions of the Slingshots.
Linda’s Speedway in Jonestown, Pennsylvania will host the final points races in the 2021 World Championship points race on October 29, 30 and 31.
Defending World Champion Scott Neary has added his name into the mix as he tried to become a back to back World Champion. Neary will be one of the top drivers in points going into the event thanks for a strong Super National Weekend and a championship in the Keystone Cup touring series.
Both of the other former champions have accomplished back to back titles before. Shelby McLaughlin did it in Junior Slingshots and Brett Bieber did it in the All Star Slingshots.
Currently over 30 drivers have signed up to compete at the World Championship Weekend.
A reminder that as in years past, all cars that come to the World Championship Weekend, must have an empty fuel cell. Fuel will be purchased at the event.
If the 100 car mark is hit the purse for each race will be doubled.
World Championship Weekend offers a rare scenario of racing four times in three days. Friday night a single event is held. Saturday the action picks up and racing is held both in the afternoon and the evening. Sunday is the finale with racing in the afternoon before the newly crowned World Champions are introduced.
