Speed Trap: Winged Sprinters, Supermodifieds Highlight Miller Lite Night


Speed Trap: Winged Sprinters, Supermodifieds Highlight Miller Lite Night

The fastest short track racers from the I-84 corridor invade Meridian Speedway this Saturday, July 27, as the quarter-mile asphalt oval presents Miller Lite Night at the Races presented by Walking Sombrero.  The Speed Tour Regional Sprint Car Series, Winged Pepsi Crate Cars, Salt Lake City Midgets, Teleperformance Street Stocks, Domino’s Legends, and the Super Modified Mini Series join forces as they speed their way to a Feature Flag. 

The Speed Tour Regional Winged Sprint Cars return to action after a hard-fought feature at Magic Valley Speedway last weekend.  Middleton, Idaho’s Hunter Stanley stayed cool under pressure, and outdueled Colton Nelson to take the win.  Who will go home with the feature flag this Saturday? 

Action in the Winged Pepsi Crate Car ranks has been fast and furious all season.  Rolling into Saturday night’s event Bryan Warf has a 32 point lead over Bob Massie, but upstart Preston Henderson has been fast and looks to catapult himself into title contention Saturday. 

After a thrilling BOB FM Diamond Cup performance, the Salt Lake City Midgets return for an encore performance in the Concrete Jungle.  Sid McElreath and Anthony Quintana split the division’s Diamond Cup double-header, but face stiff competition from Natalie Waters and Hunter Stanley if they want to repeat on Miller Lite Night at the Races. 

Jesse James Lawson and Taylor Occhipinti have pulled away from the Teleperformance Street Stock pack in 2019.  Can Occhipinti claim his second win of the season, or will Lawson continue his winning ways Saturday? 

A spirited battle has emerged among Domino’s Legends frontrunners Caity Miller and Chance Davis.  While Miller and Davis have been focused on one another, Brok Kidd has used his consistency to sneak to the top of the point standings.  Can Kidd steal his first victory of the season and solidify his place at the head of the Domino’s Legends pack, or will Miller and Davis settle their dispute with a trip to both the Caleb’s Chop Shop Winner’s Circle and the top of the standings? 

The purebred speed machines of the Supermodified Mini Series also return to the quarter-mile oval for the second sprint of the season.
