SALINA, Kan. (May 22) – Despite some morning showers, things are looking up for the Salina Speedway as racing will happen tonight (Friday).
With only one race in the books so far, on May 1, Mother Nature has prevailed each of the last two weekends. Anticipation from race fans and race teams have prompted track officials to do everything in their power to get people back on track as the season hopes to now set in full swing.
Six divisions will be in action tonight: BSB Manufacturing NeSmith Late Models, 1st Class Chassis IMCA Modifieds, Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars, Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Northern SportMods, Auto House Mod Lites, and Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stocks.
As a result of area rainouts, all new drivers registering tonight will have their registration fee waived.
The event is sponsored by Will Electric and Glass Masters. Adult grandstand admission is $10, seniors (55 and over) are price, and kids 15 and under and both active and retired military personnel are free.
Pit gates open at 5 p.m., the grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m. and hot laps are at 7:15 p.m. with racing to follow.
