Big Rig Night a hit at Lancaster Dragway

It was a “truckin’” good night at Lancaster National Dragway on Friday for Big Rig Night presented by Mallare Enterprises. Over 200 cars and trucks filled the pits for the Franco’s Pizza IHRA Drag Racing program.

Jim Mallare of Mallare Enterprises won the Semi-Truck category, defeating Sean Lindsley in the final pairing.

In Top 8 Eliminator, Brian Hitchcock scored his first win of the season after overcoming the starting line advantage his opponent, Steve Harkiewicz. The remaining classes were forced to split due to curfew. The large car count combined with a cold race track made it impossible to complete the entire program before midnight. Tread City Tire Street was down to the final pair of Eddie Semlitsch and Mark Santucci. Hebeler’s Sales Bikes & Sleds and a special Pick-Up Truck class sponsored by Halleen’s Automotive were down to three competitors each. McGard Mod was down to the semi-finals. Mallare Enterprises Top has five drivers remaining.  

On Friday, September 1 the Buffalo Street Outlaws return to Lancaster as part of a full card of Franco’s Pizza IHRA Drag Racing. Keep up with the action at
