Newmanstown, PA - If you're a fan of good old, classic short track racing on a banked oval of clay...with competitors dicing side by side, inches apart with the drivers' arms furiously flailing on their steering wheels because there's no wing to lock down the metallic steeds they are pedaling, then brother, we've got a weekend for you...
Following the the season's second event for the mighty Midgets of the American Racing Drivers Club at Linda's Speedway in Jonestown, Pa., the cars and stars of ARDC will make their very first appearance - ever - at Lanco's Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway in Newmanstown, Pa. The 2015 campaign might be the 76th for the oldest Midget racing sanctioning body in the USA, but the July 4 race will be historic because it's the first time the illustrious organization competes at one of the region's finest Micro-Sprint facilities.
One of the highest attended off-season racing events is the Reading Fairgrounds Mall Car Show. The 2015 edition will be held from February 22nd to February 28th. Lanco will once again have a display at this marquee event. In the display we will have room for Lanco members to display their cars. This is a great opportunity to get your sponsors exposure to a large audience. There is no cost to members that have their cars in the Lanco dispay. If you are interested in having your car in the display or have any questions, please contact Chris Snyder at

2015 Rules Change Log
Click 'Read More' for a listing of rule changes for the 2015 season.
The final weekend of November produced a major shake-up in the world of 600cc Sprint racing, as one of the most coveted rides in the 600cc ranks will have a new fanny filling its seat in 2015.
Car owner Gary Hunter and his driver of the past four years, Mike Rutherford, have parted ways after a very successful relationship. When the new season begins in the spring of 2015, Manheim’s Heath Hehnly, the four-time champion of the 600cc division at Lanco’s Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway, will buckle into Hunter’s No. 7h.
The track itself is a 1/8 mile clay oval with banked turns offering five divisions of micro-midget racing each night. (250cc two stroke air cooled sportsman, 125cc two stroke water cooled, 250cc four stroke, 270cc two stroke water cooled, and 600cc four cylinder) With the most recent improvements completed in the fall of 2006. The famous track is considered to be a jewel and is highly known for many things. Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway, also known as Lanco, offers great views, the concessions are one of the best, the spectator bleachers are superb, along with clean restrooms. Clyde Martin Memorial Speedway ranks among one of the top tracks anywhere on the east coast. The facilities and the track offer the best racing and family entertainment. 2012 is our 55th season of promoting professional micro-midget racing. We welcome you to the "Biggest Little Track" known as the "Clyde".
