Fenders Will Fly as Pro Trucks Invade Meridian Speedway

Pro Trucks pack Meridian Speedway this Saturday, August 25, for Boise State University Alumni Night. The PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Modifieds, Rebel Modifieds of Idaho, Pepsi Crate Cars and Idaho Sprintcar and Roadster League Super Sixes, Project Filter Pro-4s, TEAM Mazda Mini Stocks, and High School Tuners close August with a night of non-stop short track action.
Full contact racing takes center stage Saturday as the Pro Truck Series returns to Meridian Speedway. With just one race left after their visit to the concrete jungle, look for these truckers to hold nothing back as they brawl for it all under the lights.
Defending PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Modified champion Colton Nelson needs a big Boise State University Alumni Night to claw his way back into the title fight. Division leader Bryan Warf has more than doubled Nelson’s win total thus far in the 2018 campaign, but a Saturday night sweep could turn the tide in Nelson’s favor.
Competition in the Rebel Modifieds of Idaho has been fierce all season long. Who will walk away with Saturday night’s Champion Onion hardware?
What began as a one horse race in the Pepsi Crate Car and Idaho Sprintcar and Roadster League Super Six division has transformed into anything but in recent weeks. In the last four races, four different drivers have raced their way into the Caleb’s Chop Shop Winner’s Circle. With top tier talents Justin Segura and Tony Ackerland still searching for their first checkered flag, anything could happen this Saturday.
Brendon Fries leads the Project Filter Pro-4s into Boise State University Alumni Night by just 39 markers over perennial title threat Kenny Chandler. Can Fries tighten his grasp on the title Saturday, or will Chandler seize his chance to disrupt the standings?
Despite a flurry of mechanical failures Jayson Wardle has found a way to stay atop the TEAM Mazda Mini Stock standings. As the division heads into its final four events Wardle will have his hands full as he fends off fast Fred Vigil and the rest of a stacked pack of competitors.
Arin Flagstade holds the High School Tuner division lead by a scant eleven points over three-time winner James Strikwerda as the pair speed into Saturday night’s action. Can Flagstade weather the challenge and maintain his place atop the High School Tuner heap, or will Strickwerda make his move to the top?
Meridian Speedway’s youngest fans can get in on action as well Saturday with the Fast Lane Indoor Kart Racing Scooter Race for Kids. Arrive early with a helmet and a scooter to take your turn at the quarter-mile.
General admission to Boise State University Alumni Night is just $11.50 for adults, $9 for seniors and military members, $6.50 for kids 7-11, and as always kids 6 and under get in free. Gates open at 4:45 p.m. Saturday, with qualifications at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6:45 p.m. Stay up to speed with all the latest news and notes from around the quarter-mile at meridianspeedway.com, and text ‘meridianspeed’ to 84483 to join our text club for exclusive updates.
