URSS Kansas Region opener Saturday at RPM Speedway

HAYS, Kan. – The 2017 United Rebel Sprint Series Kansas Region Championship will kick off this Saturday at RPM Speedway in Hays.

The lightning fast 3/8’s mile high banks have seen some of the best battles for wins in the 12-year his­tory of the series and last year Luke Cranston took the first race win en route to the Kansas Regional Crown. Brian Herbert swept the Wheatshocker Nationals and the Rocky Mountain Grill to mark off the race from his bucket list of career accomplishments. The Kansas Region is one of the most contested championships in the series.

General admission on Saturday for fans ages 13 and up is $10 while kids 12 and under get in free.

Pit gates open at 4 p.m., the grandstand opens at 5 p.m. and the green flag waves at 7 p.m.

This season marks the second year of racing under the IMCA RaceSaver banner. The United Rebel Sprint Series will co-sanction events with both the Sprint Series of Oklahoma and the Sprint Se­ries of Nebraska. This will assure the fans of the series the opportunity to see some of the best rac­ers from a five state region battling it out for points and bragging rights.
