Trunk or Treat, Street Stock $5K Wrap Speedway Seasonadmin
The Meridian Speedway season wraps up its 2020 season with the Trunk or Treat and Haunted Haulers event Saturday, October 24. The Teleperformance Street Stocks beat and bang for a $5,000 payday in the Treasure Valley 100, while the Mulder Engineered Junior Late Models, Project Filter Pro-4s, Mini Stocks, High School Tuners, and Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets settle their seasons with one last spin around the quarter-mile asphalt oval.
The three-segment Treasure Valley 100 headlines Trunk or Treat festivities Saturday. Thanks to sponsors including: Mulder’s Auto Machine, Bell Automotive, Air Filter Super Store, Shake N Bake Racing, Daily Fit Body, A&E Sharpening, Race Traxx, Xtreme Photo, Impact Motorz, Certified Services, and in memory of both Rick and Janie Elliott, the winner of the 100-lap race will receive a cool $5,000 in winnings. Nearly thirty drivers are already entered, ready to crowd the quarter-mile as they chase down the richest checkered flag in division history.
Action in the Mulder Engineered Junior Late Models has been intense all year. Rolling into Saturday’s final event, Ashton Cristiani leads Nevaeh Hull and Jody Moen by 85 and 95 points, respectively.
Jordan Harris’ dominant Project Filter Pro-4 campaign officially comes to a close this Saturday. Despite an abundance of late-season adversity, Harris needs only to start Saturday’s main event to take his first division title. The battle for second, third, and fourth, however, is tense as just 38 markers separate Cody McDonald, Kenny Chandler, and Ryan Bailey.
The Mini Stocks take to the Concrete Jungle one more time in 2020 behind Travis Pavlacky’s speedy pickup truck.
A wild Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets campaign comes to a close Saturday night as Josh Parkkila takes his victory lap around the asphalt quarter-mile.
Dylan Wardle’s 81-point lead is enough to clinch the High School Tuner championship, but Riley Bradford, Gavin Keller, and Blaine Roberts are hungry for a division victory to cap their 2020 season.
