Selinsgrove 100

May 30, 1973
100 laps on 0.5 mile dirt oval; 50 miles

 

SELINSGROVE (Lebanon Pa. Bee) Tuesday, May 29,1973 -The stars and cars of NASCAR, along with their ARCA counterparts, will make their first
appearance ever at the Selinsgrove Speedway on Wednesday. The drivers of the two sanctioning bodies will be on hand to compete in a Grand National East event, which will be highlighted with a 100-lap grind. Leading the NASCAR professionals onto the high banked half-mile dirt oval will be Bobby Allison, of Hueytown, Ala., and Dewayne (Tiny Lund) of Cross, S.C., while Ron Hutcherson, and Iggy Katona will carry the colors of ARCA. Allison, who won 10 Grand National events last year on his way to becoming the leading money winner in the organization, will be stopping off at Selinsgrove after m a k i ng his
first start in the Indianapolis 500. After qualifying 12th fastest for the Indy race, Allison, a long-time campaigner, is the leading contender for the
speedway's Rookie of the Year honors.

Lund is no stranger to NASCAR followers, having competed in nearly every division the sanctioning body ever offered. Lund is a former Daytona 500 winner and in recent years copped two Grand American point titles. Hutcherson is the defending ARCA point champion and has campaigned on many half-mile
dirt tracks across the country,and participated at Daytona this season. Katona is no stranger to these pa r t s, as several years ago he raced in a 100-lap ARCA race and dominated the action until mechanical troubles forced him off the pace. That race, staged at Williams Grove Speedway, was won by Benny Parson, who is currently having the finest year ever in NASCAR competition.
