Dairy Days Double-Header Set for Saturday


Dairy Days Double-Header Set for Saturday

Since 1929 Meridian, Idaho has celebrated its dairy industry with the Meridian Dairy Days. This year, Meridian Speedway is proud to be a part of this celebration as the College of Western Idaho Dairy Days Races and Carnival roll into the quarter-mile Saturday, June 25.  The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds, CT400 Winged Sprintcars, College of Western Idaho Super Street Stocks, and TATES Rents Hornets are set to do battle in one of the most unique settings they’ll see all year.

The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds get to go round and round twice Saturday as they race their way through double main events. With his hard fought win last Saturday night Colton Nelson extended his points lead to twenty markers over Larry Hull III.  Can Hull III make the most of this mid-season opportunity and tighten the title race further?

Drivers of the CT400 Winged Sprintcar division race to turn their big speeds into big money Saturday. Not only does a win move them one step closer to a class championship, but it also comes with a substantial $1,000 bonus check if you cross the start/finish line first.

The College of Western Idaho Super Street Stocks have produced their fair share of close racing this season, and Saturday night looks to be no different. Early season dominator Melissa Weaver-Arte has come under siege from a fast field of racers in the division previous two races.  Can Weaver-Arte keep the field in her rearview mirror, or will she be the one in hot pursuit Saturday?

The TATES Rents Hornets celebrate Meridian Dairy Days with a 100 lap endurance race. Who among these road warriors can keep up the pace through 25 grueling miles to take home the hardware?

General admission for Saturday’s races is just $10.50 for adults, $6.50 for kids 7-11.
