Modified Leaders Set for Pivotal BSU Alumni Night Showdown


Modified Leaders Set for Pivotal BSU Alumni Night Showdown

Meridian Speedway welcomes Broncos past and present this Saturday, July 13, for Boise State Alumni Night and the Mega Bike Giveaway.  The PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds, Project Filter Pro-4s, Factory Motor Parts Mini Stocks, High School Tuners, and Junior Stingers round out an action-packed night of short track thrills and spills as they compete for their Factory Motor Parts Feature Flags. 

The battle atop the PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified standings has been tight all season, and with last week’s struggles Shelby Stroebel has once again slipped behind both Wyatt King and Casey Tillman in the standings.  Meanwhile, Middleton, Idaho’s Zach Telford is on a tear.  Scoring dominant victories in two of the PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds’ last three main events, the teenager has proved himself a force to be reckoned with.  Who emerges from Saturday’s Boise State Alumni Night action with the Factory Motor Parts Feature Flag?

Kenny Chandler has reeled off three straight Project Filter Pro-4 victories to take a 27 point advantage over Jordan Harris as the pair roll into Saturday night’s feature.  Which of these competitors will emerge with the first victory of the division’s second half? 

It took just three weeks for Travis Pavlacky to storm his way to the top of the Factory Motor Parts Mini Stock standings.  Suddenly 36 markers out of the lead, Fred Vigil has his work cut out if he wants to retake the standings lead from Pavlacky’s pickup. 

Cody Castricone brings a twelve point advantage to bear on James Strikwerda as the two High School Tuner drivers do battle Saturday.  Will Castricone maintain his lead, or will Strikwerda’s Coors Super Stock experience drive him to the top of the Pepsi-Cola scoreboard? 

With one win apiece Junior Stinger competitors Dylan Wardle and Delaney Grace take Saturday’s green flag with a mere ten points separating them.  But the pair face stiff competition from main event winners Jody Moen, John Clever, and the rest of a full field of young racers. 

General admission to Saturday’s jam-packed night of short track racing is just $12 for adults, $10 for seniors 60+ and military members, and $7 for kids 7-11.  As always, kids 6 and under get in free.  Wear your best Bronco blue and orange gear and get $2 off at the gate!  Gates open at 4:45 p.m. with qualifying at 5:30 and racing at 6:45 p.m.  Log on to www.meridianspeedway.com for your advance tickets and text ‘meridianspeed’ to 84483 to receive exclusive updates from around the quarter-mile.  We’ll see you this Saturday, July 13, for Boise State Alumni Night at your NASCAR Home Track under the big yellow water tower, Meridian Speedway.
