SELINSGROVE, Pa. " Central Pennsylvania 358 sprint car rising star Logan Schuchart, of Hanover, will make his debut in a 410 sprint car this Saturday, Sept. 17, in the Jim Nace Memorial 29th Annual National Open at Selinsgrove Speedway.

Schuchart, an 18-year-old senior at Spring Grove Area High School in his third season of sprint car racing, has eight wins this year in 358-360 sprint car competition at four different tracks, including the recent $8,000 victory over Shane Stewart of Indianapolis, Ind., in the Sept. 3 National Open for 358-360 sprint cars at Selinsgrove.

“It’s been my dream since I was a little kid to drive sprint cars and especially to drive 410 sprint cars,” said Schuchart. “When I got the opportunity to drive the 358 I was really excited and now to race a 410 is awesome. Some day I’d like to race with the World of Outlaws or have the opportunity to race full-time.

“I’ve never driven a 410 before and there’s a lot more horsepower to them so it’s going to take a little time to get used to,” he continued. “Selinsgrove is definitely a high-speed place with the 358’s and I think I’ll be able to adapt to that with the 410 quickly. I think we have a good chance of running well this Saturday.”

The Shark Motorsports team, led by chief mechanic and Hall-of-Fame sprint car driver Bobby Allen, who is Schuchart’s grandfather, will place a 410 sprint car motor from Don Ott Racing Engines of York Springs under the hood of the popular No. 1-S sponsored by Bealing Homes and Rich Fogle & Son Custom Pole Buildings for the National Opens at both Selinsgrove and Williams Grove Speedways.
