Rain wins again, Salina moves championship and fan appreciation night

By Dusty Wiegert

SALINA, Kan. – Torrential overnight rains have once again canceled the night’s scheduled racing for Friday, Sept. 16 at Salina Speedway. The event will be moved, in its entirety, to Sunday, Sept. 18.

The order of events for Sunday will be as follows: Pits will open at 1 p.m., grandstands at 1:30 p.m., hot laps at 3:15 p.m. and racing at 4 p.m.

All Fan Appreciation Night tickets handed out to fans from the drivers and sponsors will be hon­ored on Sunday. It’s the first time ever that a “stand packer” night shares the same event as the championship finale, in which seven drivers will be crowned as Champions.

The event will be co-headlined with the Jaxson Fuller Youth Scholarship Fund night with many activities going on for the kids, who also receive free admission every week at the Speedway.

All divisions will be in action. Sanctioned classes include the Long McArthur Ford IMCA Modi­fieds, Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars, M&H Motors IMCA Northern SportMods, Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stocks and Bird Contracting IMCA Sport Compacts.

The IMCA Sport Compact feature will serve as the Barry Brittendall Memorial Race.

Casey’s General Store is the featured sponsor for the Championship event again this year.
