Sprintcar Showdown Highlights Dollar Taco Night


Sprintcar Showdown Highlights Dollar Taco Night

It’s all about the main events and dollar tacos this Saturday, June 19, as Meridian Speedway hosts Walking Sombrero Dollar Taco Night Twin 25’s.  With the Pepsi Sprintcars, Coors Big 12 Pro-Late Models, Domino’s Legends, Zamp Stingers, and Mulder Engineered Race Engines Junior Late Models, there will be no shortage of action around the quarter-mile asphalt oval. 

Pepsi Sprintcar racers have a little extra incentive this Saturday night as they vie for a $3,000 payday.  Ryan Newman and Johnny Giesler have found the Caleb’s Chop Shop Winner’s Circle so far in 2021, but Bryan Warf, Nate Little, and a whole host of open-wheel competitors look to add their name to the winner’s list and take home a boatload of cash to boot.   

Young Daytona Wurtz has taken the checkered flag in four of the Coors Big 12 Pro-Late Models’ first five events, and looks to add a fifth and sixth victory to her season total.  But a strong contingent of racers including Melissa Weaver, Pat Tully, Chris Fenton, and others is hungry to kick the mid-season swing off with a W. 

Jerry Davis leads sons Johnethan and Chance in the Domino’s Legends standings with three races in the 2021 season books.  With his breakthrough win in the division’s most recent meeting, Brok Kidd has pulled within striking distance of the Davis family juggernaut and looks to land another standings blow on Walking Sombrero Dollar Taco Night. 

The Zamp Stingers and Mulder Engineered Race Engines Junior Late Models round out the final race night of spring.
