HAYS, Kan. – The Mel Hambelton Ford Racing POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series will invade RPM Speedway this Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14 for the Mike Hughes Memorial Sunflower Classic in Hays, Kan.
This race, originally scheduled for late March, is expected to draw a great field of cars as racing has opened back up in the state of Kansas. With this being the first two day show for the traveling IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car series and paying $1,000 to win both days, cars from Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas are expected to attend.
After two previous outings in Salina and Wichita, the point battle is heating up and this year promises to be extremely competitive. Defending champion Zach Blurton took the opening round in Salina with 2019 tour rookie of the year Kyler Johnson picking up his first career feature victory in Wichita last weekend.
IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, series and Kansas State points will be awarded.
IMCA Modifieds also race for $1,000 to win, plus Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot berths both nights. IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts complete both cards.
Action will start at 5 p.m. both days. Spectator admission is $15 with kids 12 and under free when accompanying a paid adult.
Both night’s programs will be broadcast by Speed Shift TV.
