Super Late Models Return to Concrete Jungle This Monday


Super Late Models Return to Concrete Jungle This Monday

Meridian Speedway caps this Memorial Day weekend with the Speed Tour Super Late Models presented by Pit Stop USA as they run the NAPA Auto Parts Treasure Valley 125 this Monday, May 31.  Monday night’s action also features the Pepsi Sprintcars, Coors Big 12 Pro-Late Models running the Bill Crow 50, Boise Bath and Kitchen Company Mini Stocks, and Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets chasing their own Trammel Construction Feature Flags. 

The fastest full-bodied stock cars on the quarter-mile, the Speed Tour Super Late Models presented by Pit Stop USA rumble to green for a 125-lap torture test.  Covering 31.25 miles, roughly the length of the Treasure Valley itself, the NAPA Auto Parts Treasure Valley 125 presents a bevy of challenges both mechanical and mental.  Who will tame the Concrete Jungle and lay claim the first Speed Tour Super Late Model victory of the season? 

Tensions run high in the Pepsi Sprintcar division as Ryan Newman and Bryan Warf have yet to find their way around Johnny Giesler.  While the point differential sits at just 15 between Giesler and Newman, Warf already finds himself 36 markers back and in need of a good run to get back in title contention.   

The Coors Big 12 Pro-Late Models take their first crack at the oldest memorial race on the Meridian Speedway schedule, the Bill Crow 50.  Daytona Wurtz enters the weekend undefeated in main event action, but has come under heavy attack from Melissa Weaver, Pat Tully, and a host of hard-nosed competitors. 

Two dozen Boise Bath and Kitchen Company Mini Stock racers have taken the green flag already in 2021.   Despite his victory in the division’s last outing, defending champion Travis Pavlacky finds himself twelve points behind Don Trafford, who’s still seeking his first Feature Flag of the season. 

The Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets round out a jam-packed slate of short track action Monday.  Jeff Matuska, Jerry Knaus, and Kage Crysler lead a strong contingent of full-contact racers to green as they duel for their Trammel Construction Feature Flag.
