Racing and jubilation continue Tuesday as the local clergy put the pedal to the metal in a battle of who will be the fastest flying pastor in “Faster Pastor” school bus race. It’s one of the most anticipated races of the season as men of the cloth follow the lead of Carrie Underwood and let “Jesus, Take the Wheel.”

Area clergy members scheduled to take part in the school bus race include:

  • Evan Smith, Providence Baptist Church, Harrisburg
  • Ric Blazi, Hickory Grove Baptist Church
  • Zach Whitt, Multiply Church
  • Tyler Kulp, Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School
  • Billy Mauldin, Motor Racing Outreach


Admission to Tuesday’s Faster Pastor and doubleheader feature night is just $10 for adults and free for kids 12 and under. All fans named Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Mary, Ruth, Esther or Sarah with I-D get in FREE.

Also, as a holdover from Christmas in July night, fans can get in for FREE when they bring a new, unwrapped gift with them to the gate. The toys will be donated to local charities. 

Tickets can be purchased at the gate, by calling 800-455-FANS or online at
