Saturdays Bald Hill Shootout pays $1000 to win and $300 but since the race has been dedicated to the late Jim Strausbaugh some local businesses have stepped up in his memory. Former racer Clair Wintermeyer has put up $1000 to be split to 2 random recipients in the top 10 and now Dressler Electric of Lewisberry has added a $100 hard charger bonus. Another $100 bonus will go to the longest traveler in the Top 10 courtesy of Eichelbergers Well Drilling of Mechanicsburg.
