EMS-Police-Fire-Patriot Night Returns Saturday


EMS-Police-Fire-Patriot Night Returns Saturday

Meridian Speedway honors first responders this Saturday, June 12, with its annual EMS, Police, Fire, and Patriots Night.  First responders with ID get in free to see the Speed Tour Modifieds presented by Pit Stop USA, Bud Light NASCAR Modifieds, Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stocks, Boise Bath and Kitchen Company Mini Stocks, Zamp Stingers, and Idaho Sprintcar Racing League do battle for their Trammel Construction Feature Flags. 

Two-time division winner Shelby Stroebel leads the Speed Tour Modifieds presented by Pit Stop USA into Meridian Speedway.  With 27 points in hand over Dylan Caldwell and forty over fellow two-time main event winner Wyatt King, Stroebel looks to tighten his grip on the standings lead Saturday night. 

The chase for the Bud Light NASCAR Modified championship looks to be a duel between Josh Fanopoulos and Kyle Latham.  Separated from Latham by just 21 markers despite his three main event victories, Fanopoulos will have his hands full during both features this Saturday night. 

Fanopoulos also looks to build on his Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stock standings lead on EMS, Police, Fire and Patriot Night.  Just one point ahead of hard-charging Taylor Occhipinti, Fanopoulos will have to wheel his racer hard to keep up in this crowded class. 

The Travis Pavlacky-Don Trafford dogfight in the Boise Bath and Kitchen Company Mini Stock ranks continues this Saturday.  With an average of over twenty cars taking the feature race green, and just six points between them, the title chase is always one false move away from being turned upside down. 

Niko Heinzel has taken home the Feature Flag in both Zamp Stinger events so far in 2021, but has had a mirror full of Aaden Fanopoulos, Joey Wiederich, and a whole host of competitive youngsters. 

The Idaho Sprintcar Racing League and Dairy Queen Bike Races for Kids cap a jam-packed lineup. 

All EMS, Police, Fire, and Correctional Officers get in free Saturday.  General admission is just $13 for adults, $11 for seniors and military members, $7 for kids 7 to 11, and free for kids 6 and under.  Gates open at 4:45 p.m. Saturday with racing at 6:30 p.m.  Log on to www.meridianspeedway.com to secure your advance tickets.  We’ll see all you short track patriots this Saturday, June 12, under the big yellow water tower at your NASCAR Home Track, Meridian Speedway.
