Legends Find a $5K Winner this Weekend


Legends Find a $5K Winner this Weekend

The Domino’s Legends take center stage this Saturday, May 22, as they do battle in Meridian Speedway’s inaugural Pauly’s Bar Room Legends of Cash $5K.  Alongside this dash for $5,000 in cash, the North West Tour Truck Series, Bud Light NASCAR Modifieds, and Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stocks fight for the night’s Walking Sombrero Taco Truck Feature Flags. 

With a $5,000 payday on the line, the Pauly’s Bar Room Legends of Cash has attracted Domino’s Legends racers from all corners of the western United States.  From Washington’s Levie Jones to New Mexico’s Jason Irwin, Meridian Speedway local racers will have their hands full as they battle to keep the $5,000 winner’s check in the Treasure Valley. 

For the first time in 2021, the North West Tour Truck Series will beat and bash their way around the Concrete Jungle.  Defending series champion John Newhouse already has one win on the young North West Tour Truck Series season, but has his mirrors full of fellow feature winner Neal Latham and the always-quick Jenna Quale. 

The tightest points battle in the Concrete Jungle gets back on track as the Bud Light NASCAR Modifieds return to the quarter-mile.  With four different winners in the four races so far this season, it’s no wonder that top-three point earners Josh Fanopoulos, Kyle Latham, and Brendon Fries are separated by just 7 markers.  Who will separate themselves from the pack on Pauly’s Bar Room Legends of Cash Night? 

In Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stock action, a mere fourteen points separate Fanopoulos from second place runner Taylor Occhipinti.  With a pair of victories already in the 2021 campaign, defending division champ Fanopoulos looks to have picked up where he left off last year.  Can Occhipinti mount a charge as the pair speed toward the summer stretch, or will Fanopoulos tighten his grip on another division title? 

General admission for Saturday’s Pauly’s Bar Room Legends of Cash $5K is just $13 for adults, $11 for seniors and military members, $7 for kids 7-11, and free for kids 6 and under.  Gates open at 4:45 p.m. with opening ceremonies at 6:30 p.m.  Purchase your advance tickets now at www.meridianspeedway.com and skip the line at the gate.  Can’t make it out to the Concrete Jungle?  Watch live flag-to-flag coverage of all the night’s action at SpeedCast.tv.  We’ll see you this Saturday, May 22 for the Pauly’s Bar Room Legends of Cash $5K under the big yellow water tower at your NASCAR Home Track, Meridian Speedway.
