Winged Sprint Cars Return to Concrete Jungle

Winged Sprint Cars Return to Concrete Jungle

The ground-pounding Speed Tour Regional Sprint Cars presented by Pit Stop USA take over Meridian Speedway this Saturday, April 17, for the Burnt River Farms Sprint Car Opener.  The Speed Tour Modifieds join their open-wheeled compatriots Saturday, while the local the Project Filter Pro-4s, Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets, and Firehouse Pub and Grill Bombers kick off their 2021 campaign in search of the night’s YMC Mechanical trophy. 

Fire-breathing and lightning fast, the Speed Tour Sprint Cars presented by Pit Stop USA are the most uniquely experience in short-track racing.  Fresh off his championship-winning 2020 season, Casey Tillman rolls into Saturday night’s feature primed and ready to begin his title defense with a win. 

With just a week to regroup after last week’s feature, the Speed Tour Modifieds presented by Pit Stop USA rumble back into the Concrete Jungle.  After early contact hampered his chances at a season-opening victory, Shelby Stroebel looks to rebound at his home track. 

The Project Filter Pro-4s take the green flag on their fifty-first season of competition ready for another hard-fought championship battle.  Last year, Jordan Harris out-dueled Kenny Chandler for the title, but needs another flawless season if he’s to repeat as division champ. 

Trading paint isn’t a requirement for the hard-charging Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets and Firehouse Pub and Grill Bombers, but don’t tell that to these rough-and-tumble competitors.  You won’t want to miss a second of the high-octane, low buck thrills these racers provide as they vie for a YMC Mechanical Feature Flag. 

General admission for Saturday night’s Burnt River Farms Sprint Car Opener is just $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and military members, $7 for kids 7-11, and free for kids 6 and under.  Gates open at 4:45 p.m. with opening ceremonies at 6:30 p.m.  Log on to to purchase your advance tickets and stay up to speed with all the goings on at the Concrete Jungle.  For exclusive, up to the minute updates from around the quarter-mile, text the word ‘meridianspeed’ to 84483 to join our text club.  Can’t make it out to the track?  Log on to and bring the Concrete Jungle right into your living room!  We’ll see you this Saturday, April 17, for the Burnt River Farms Sprintcar Opener under the big yellow water tower at your NASCAR Home Track, Meridian Speedway.
