Green Flag Flies on 2021 with Speed Tour Modifieds this Saturday

Meridian Speedway rockets into 2021 this Saturday, April 10, for the ATS Inland Season Opener.  Featuring the Speed Tour Modifieds presented by Pit Stop USA, Bud Light NASCAR Modifieds, Mulder Engineered Race Engines Junior Late Models, Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stocks, and Domino’s Legends, there’ll be no shortage of wheel-to-wheel action to kick off the 2021 season. 

Meridian modified standout Shelby Stroebel rolled to the inaugural Speed Tour Modified title in 2020, but 2020 standings runner up Aubree Cristiani, top-five finishers Kyle Latham and Dylan Caldwell, and the rest of a hungry pack are set to win their way to an early-season point lead. 

Brendon Fries rolls his Bud Light NASCAR Modified to green looking to defend the division title.  But with the new year comes a more inclusive rule book, and a fresh batch of fast company. 

The future of the Concrete Jungle is now in the Mulder Engineered Race Engines Junior Late Model division.  Pairing big talent with big power produces big action as these youngsters gather valuable experience on the quarter-mile. 

Look for the gloves to come off early in the Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stock division.  With a full field of hard-nosed racers behind the wheel of steel-bodied stock cars, there’ll be plenty of action on tap in this competitive division. 

Rounding out Saturday’s slate of short-track action is the Domino’s Legend division.  Not only will this early-season showdown set the tone for the Legends’ seven-race season, but it also serves as their only tune-up before the Legends of Cash $5K event on May 22. 

General admission to Saturday night’s ATS Inland Season Opener is just $13 for adults, $11 for seniors and military members, $7 for kids 7-11, and, as always, free for kids 6 and under.  Gates open at 4:45 p.m. with opening ceremonies at 6:30 p.m.  Log on to www.meridianspeedway.com to purchase your advance tickets and stay up to speed with all the goings on at the Concrete Jungle.  For exclusive, up to the minute updates from around the quarter-mile, text the word ‘meridianspeed’ to 84483 to join our text club.  Can’t make it out to the track?  Log on to speedcast.tv and bring the Concrete Jungle right into your living room!  We’ll see you this Saturday, April 10, for the ATS Inland Season Opener under the big yellow water tower at your NASCAR Home Track, Meridian Speedway.
