Military Appreciation Night Roars into Meridian Speedway Saturday


Military Appreciation Night Roars into Meridian Speedway Saturday

Celebrate Armed Forces Day with Meridian Speedway as your NASCAR Home Track host Military Appreciation Night this Saturday, May 21. The Project Filter Pro-4 Tri Track Challenge, NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds, Pepsi Crate Cars, College of Western Idaho Super Street Stocks, Junior Stingers, and TATES Rents Hornets will all chase the Boise Boys Transportation trophy as the quarter-mile pays tribute to the brave men and women of our Armed Forces.

The Project Filter Pro-4s will face some stiff competition Saturday as Meridian Speedway hosts the next round of the Tri Track Challenge. Brendon Fries sailed off with the season’s first main event trophy, but will he be able to knife through the pack to bring home two in a row?

With four main events in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series books already three different drivers have claimed a main event trophy. Who will claw their way to the top of this ultra-competitive class Saturday night?

The Pepsi Crate Cars look to make their season debut after Mother Nature spoiled their first attempt. These open-wheeled ground pounders are raring to go and the action looks to be intense from the drop of the green flag.

The College of Western Idaho Super Street Stocks crowd the quarter-mile to chase down a familiar foe in Melissa Weaver-Arte, who’s already tallied two main event wins in 2016. However, in a field packed with experience and talent, Weaver-Arte may be the driver most on upset alert this Saturday.

The Junior Stingers have gained valuable experience while putting on a great show thus far in 2016. With an ever-growing field of cars don’t miss these young drivers as they learn the lessons that will make them the stars of tomorrow.

The TATES Rents Hornets mob the concrete jungle for their second full-field appearance of 2016. With a rookies-only invitational in the books, a lot of new faces have joined the early season championship battle.  Who can stay at the head of the crowd-pleasing class this Saturday?

Admission to this full night of action-packed racing is free for all military members with military ID, $10.50 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $6.50 for kids 7-11.
