COLBY, Kan. (July 7) – With night one of the Summer Sizzler Tour in going to Nebraska’s Toby Chapman, United Rebel Sprint Series drivers are preparing to finish out the four-race series with the final three races this weekend in pursuit of the $1,000 winner’s share for the overall championship.
Tonight (Friday) the Rebels make their appearance at Thomas County Speedway in Colby, Kan., after being rained out there earlier this spring. A great field of cars are expected for this event as, along with the URSS regulars, there will be a good contingent of Colorado, Nebraska and Oklahoma cars to begin the three-day run.
Oklahoma’s Ty Williams will be on hand to defend his win last year in this event as will current Jake Martins. Other heavy hitters will be Kansas drivers Steven Richardson, Brian Herbert, Zach Blurton, Jed Werner and J.D. Johnson, among others.
Nebraska hot shoes will include Darren and Nate Berry, John Webster, Matt Richards and Shane Sandiest to name a few. Mark Wander, Scott Cochran and Cobi Pearce and a host of others will represent Colorado. Racing starts at 8 p.m.
On Saturday, July 8 the Rebels head to Nebraska when they return to Lincoln County Raceway in North Platte for the second annual Ron Williams/Dick Myers Memorial.
Last year, Blurton bested a field of 32 cars in front of a packed stands to claim the $1,500 winner’s share. Look for a larger field this year as it has became a favorite among the drivers and fans with many contingencies and added money. Racing starts at 6:30 p.m.
On Sunday, July 9, Rebels will head east one hour down I-80 to one of their favorite tracks as they visit Lexington Raceway to end the Summer Sizzler Week and crown a champion. The wide sweeping corners of the track always put on a very close blistering fast race. Racing starts at 6pm.
More than $3,000 has been donated to make Summer Sizzler Week possible by Myers Engines, Hiker Trucking, Evans Buildings, Downey Drilling, Colby Automotive, Bottle Gallery, S & W Supply, Commercial Sign, Wagoner & Sons, Colby Country Trader Gun Shop, Momentum Suspensions, Destiny Trucking, Herbs Towing and Big Boys Toy Storage
