WAR SPRINTS TACKLE TWO DAY WEEKEND
Indianapolis, IN - A two-day weekend of racing is up next for the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints. First heading to US 36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri on Friday, May 19 for the first time since 2012, followed by their second showing this season at I-35 Speedway in Winston, Missouri on Saturday, May 20.
Austin Alumbaugh won the last WAR event at US 36 Raceway in 2012 in the Rick Smith owned number 26 machine. Many fresh faces will attempt to snag a WAR victory there this Friday.
Korey Weyant picked up his first and only win of the 2017 season at I-35 Speedway in April. Weyant currently leads the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints point standings followed by Chris Parkinson, Wyatt Burks, Clinton Boyles, and Slater Helt who rounds out the top five. While Boyles has two wins already this season and Weyant has one, the rest of the top five in points look to find victory lane for the first time in 2017 this weekend at I-35 Speedway and US 36 Raceway.
Wingless Sprint Series Invades Cottage Grove Speedway
By Ben Deatherage
Cottage Grove, Oregon- After a week of dormancy the Non-Wing Sprint Car stars of the Pacific Northwest is back in action on Saturday, May 20th. The second race of the campaign will take place at Oregon's Cottage Grove Speedway. Expect a very good car count to compliment some entertaining racing at the historic ¼-mile clay oval.
Gary Lynch would open up the 2017 season with a big win at Madras Speedway on May 6th. There was also a healthy number of participants with nineteen drivers making the journey. That number will most likely go up due to Cottage Grove Speedway boasting a good base of Sprint Car teams in the area. There is also an enticing $200.00 bonus, courtesy of Rob Lindsey and Brian Crockett of BC Motorsports, on the line for the highest finishing Cottage Grove Speedway Limited engine.
The WSS has only been to Cottage Grove Speedway twice since the formation of the series in 2016. Cooper Desbiens and Kyle Miller would split the wins in those two events. Will there be three different winners in as many Wingless Sprint Series appearances.
