Let's get ready to rumble! One of the most popular events that the Pittsburgh Circle Track Club has every year is the annual Kennywood Park Motorsports Day! The historical amusement park opens its gates to the PCTC, race cars, drivers and crew members on Sunday, May 27, 2018. Race cars will be on display throughout the midway, culminating with a "Parade of Thunder" around the park!

Drivers interested in registering are encouraged to do so as quickly as possible, as the 20 car limit seems to go rather quickly. To be eligible to have your race car on display, you must be a current card holding member of the Pittsburgh Circle Track Club prior to May 27th. Cars must be in the parking lot by 9:00 a.m. Please note that all race cars must be cleaned prior to arriving at the park. In return for displaying your race car, the driver will receive four entries into Kennywood Park for that day and four more tickets for a later date!

If you are interested in participating in the 2018 Kennywood Park Motorsports Day, please call Bob McWilliams at 412-921-2553 or Howie Balis at 724-366-9998 to register and verify that you are a current card holding member prior to May 27th. This year's event has been pushed back to a later date in May due to the inclement weather earler in the month.

The Pittsburgh Circle Track Club is looking forward to spending this special day with all of our club members. See you there!

PCTC Club Nights scheduled as of May 1, 2018:

  • June 15 - Dog Hollow Speedway
  • July 7 - Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway
  • July 14 - Jennerstown Speedway
  • July 27 - Lernerville Speedway (Must RSVP one week before date)
  • August 4 - Midvale Speedway

The club is still working out dates with: Eriez Speedway, Hummingbird Speedway, Roaring Knob Speedway, Thunder Mountain Speedway, Sharon Speedway.

All club members must show their PCTC membership card for entry to the track on club nights. Once additional dates are confirmed, they will be announced on the club's Facebook Page.


The 2017 season saw over 110 drivers compete in the Pittsburgh Circle Track Club Points Program. For the 2018 season club points will begin on May 1, 2018 and run through September 16, 2018. As in past years, the club will score your top 12 finishes during the above mentioned time frame. If you race more than once a week, you can only choose one finish to your total points for that week. Points will be scored 10 points for 1st through 1 point for 10th with a maximum of 120 points for the year. You must be a current PCTC member prior to the start of the points program. If you join the after the points begin, your points will be scored from that date. Once the clubs establishes a list of drivers in each division, it's the driver's or team representative's responsibility to make sure that they submit their point totals to the club by the end of each month so we can verify your point totals and the tracks where you have raced. A list will be available on our Facebook page and in the club's newsletter.

The 2018 season should be exciting as well as interesting as we have had tracks shutting down, drivers changing divisions and even had drivers change surfaces they race on. The PCTC would like to thank all of the drivers and the crews who supported our drivers point program in 2017. The club is looking forward to another great season, if you have any questions you can message the club through our Facebook page, or you can contact Dave Olivieri at daveolivieri@comcast.net.
