Ladies Night Hosts Junior Late Model Debut


Ladies Night Hosts Junior Late Model Debut

Meridian Speedway unveils an all-new class this Saturday, May 4, as the Mulder Engineered Junior Late Models take the track for their debut on Factory Motor Parts Ladies Night at the quarter-mile asphalt oval.   The PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds double down on main event action, while the Coors Super Stocks, Factory Motor Parts Mini Stocks, Teleperformance Street Stocks, and Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets scrap for their own Construction Service and Repair feature flags. 

Matching the fastest fourteen to eighteen-year-old talent from around the quarter-mile with precision-built speed machines, the Mulder Engineered Junior Late Model division provides the perfect vehicle for the next wave of speedway stars to hone their race craft.  With a strong lineup of fearless youngsters behind the wheel, don’t be surprised if the Mulder Engineered Junior Late Models turn in the performance of the night Saturday. 

After two wild weeks of race action, the PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds rumble back onto the quarter-mile for their first double main event evening of 2019.  After a pair of thrilling battles, Casey Tillman and Shelby Stroebel sit atop the point standings with a snarling pack of competitors in their tire tracks. 

Two drivers have distanced themselves from the Coors Super Stock field so far in 2019.  Class rookie Daytona Wurtz and perennial title favorite Melissa Weaver dueled to the checkered flag in their first race two weeks ago.  Watch for this budding rivalry to heat up on Factory Motor Parts Ladies Night. 

Running their third feature in four weeks, the Factory Motor Parts Mini Stocks hope to have something for Fred Vigil, winner of each main event so far this season.  While front wheel drive racers have seen unprecedented success of late, the championship has still been claimed by a rear wheel drive Ford Mustang for the last decade.  Who prevails on Factory Motor Parts Ladies Night? 

After scoring wins in the division’s last two Saturday night showdowns, Jesse James Lawson rolls into Factory Motor Parts Ladies Night with momentum to spare.  But the road to a Teleperformance Street Stock three-peat will be anything but easy in this rough-and-tumble division. 

A resurgent Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornet division crowds the quarter-mile for their second tilt of 2019.  Newcomer Casey Winter strolled across the line second to take victory in the division’s first novelty race, but faces a whole new challenge this Saturday night. 

Plus, Saturday night features the first Lucky Rides for Kids night of 2019.  Keep an ear out for directions on how to ride shotgun with your favorite driver as they lap the quarter-mile.
