The Clinton County Speedway has partnered with local brewer, Lee Powers and his Floating Feathers Brewing Company of Mill Hall to produce its own beer.
“Working with Lee and his staff, we came up with the idea of a special beer for our largest race of the season,” says Jason McCahan, speedway promoter. “On Saturday, August 12, we host the 410 Sprint Cars for the Phil Walter Classic, paying $6,300 to win and now we have a beer for our biggest race of the season.”
The beer will be a 16-ounce pilsner. The can features a checkered flag background with the Clinton County Speedway and Floating Feathers Brewing Company logos as well as a picture of Billy Dietrich’s #8 Sprint Car. Billy Dietrich of Billy Dietrich Racing is the defending champion of the Phil Walter Classic.
Five-Hundred cans of the beer are being produced by Floating Feathers Brewing Company. Fans can pre-order the beer at https://forms.office.com/r/zSUEK09YjK The link is also available on the speedway’s website and facebook page. Fans who pre-order the beer will be able to pick it up at the Floating Feather’s beer truck during the Phil Walter Classic on Saturday, August 12th. Cans of the limited edition are being sold as a single can or in a four pack.
“We are very excited at Floating Feathers to provide locally made beers and ciders with local ingredients for our local speedway,” says Lee Powers, “Giving back proceeds of every beer to improve our local track is important to us. Come out and enjoy the fast-paced action of the Phil Walter Classic with a Floating Feathers brewski.”
The 410 sprint cars are featured at the speedway twice this season. The first 410 Sprint Car show is on Friday, July 14th paying $4,000 to win. The Phil Walter Classic for the 410 Sprint cars is on Saturday, August 12th. In honor of the speedway’s 35th anniversary season, several hallmark events have been scheduled during the 2023 season, including the two 410 sprint car events.
“The 410 sprint car events are very popular,” says speedway promoter, Jason McCahan. “We offer something unique in that we are a Central PA short track and the 410 sprints put on an exciting show every time they come to Clinton County.”
