MOHNTON, Pa. - Maple Grove Raceway's 50th anniversary season gets into full swing with Grudge Racing/Test and Tune on Saturday, April 28, followed by the annual Universal Technical Institute High School Challenge on Sunday, April 29.

The test and tune will give drivers a chance to get their cars in shape for the upcoming season.

Gates open for the test and tune at 9 a.m. with racing beginning at 10 and running until 4 p.m. It will be $25 for towed entries and $20 for drive-ups. Crewmembers and spectators are $10 each while children 12 and under are free with a paid adult.

The UTI High School Challenge, which will run on Sunday, gives aspiring mechanics and racers a chance to show what they've learned in front of their peers.

Competitors will not only get a chance to safely race their cars down The Grove's quarter-mile strip, they will also get a chance to represent their respective schools.

Daniel Boone High School from Berks County is the defending team champion. Brett Thompson from Daniel Boone won last year's overall championship. Nearly 40 high schools from an area ranging from the Lehigh Valley to York were represented.

The High School Challenge will get underway Sunday morning with gates opening at 8 a.m. and time trials starting at 9:30. Race entry is $25, while spectators pay $15, juniors ages 13-15 pay $10 and children 12 and under are free.
