Main Event Madness This Saturday


Main Event Madness This Saturday

It’s main event madness this Saturday, August 14, as the Project Filter Twin 25’s take over Meridian Speedway.  The Coors Pro-Late Models, Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stocks, Project Filter Pro-4s, Boise Bath and Kitchen Company Mini Stocks, and Firehouse Pub and Grill Bombers go wheel-to-wheel for not only the Ferguson Waterworks Feature Flags, but crucial late season points as well. 

The Coors Pro-Late Model division rolls into Saturday night’s action behind division dominator Daytona Wurtz.  With six wins in the books and more than one hundred points in hand over second-place runner Melissa Weaver, Wurtz can worry less about points this weekend, and instead focus on the two-day event scheduled in conjunction with the NAPA Auto Parts Idaho 208. 

After a hard-fought feature last weekend, the Pauly’s Bar Room Street Stocks roar onto the quarter-mile for their second of three-straight events.  Even a fourth victory for Troy Evans wasn’t enough to make up ground on point leader Josh Fanopoulos, who leads the standings by a full 98 markers as this full-contact classification runs their second of three-straight main events. 

After an explosive Dairy Queen Bike Race Night, the Project Filter Pro-4s race their way back into action for this week’s Project Filter Twin 25’s.  Ryan Bailey holds a 108-point advantage over Ray Bolinger, but the real standings battle is between Kenny Chandler, Jordan Harris, and Wes ‘Fireball’ Summers, who all sit within 23 points of each other in spots three through five. 

The most crowded class on the quarter-mile, the Boise Bath and Kitchen Company Mini Stocks flock to Meridian Speedway once again this Saturday.  Travis Pavlacky and his powerful pickup truck still lead the season standings, but Don Trafford is hoping to dethrone Pavlacky with a late-season charge. 

The Firehouse Pub and Grill Bombers recover from Eve of Destruction with a double dose of main event racing Saturday. 

General admission to Saturday’s Project Filter Twin 25’s 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. Saturday, with qualifying at 6 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m.  Advance tickets are available for purchase at www.meridianspeedway.com.  We’ll see you this Saturday, August 14, for the Project Filter Twin 25’s under the big yellow water tower at your NASCAR Home Track, Meridian Speedway.
