Monster Energy' Sprint Series Adds Four Big Dates to Schedule
The Monster Energy Sprint Series is riding a wave of momentum, and four big events have been added to the schedule for 2011! Dates are planned for Tri-City Speedway, St. Francois County Raceway, Macon Speedway and a co-sanctioned event with the IRA in LaSalle in September.
On Friday, June 17, the series will hit the Tri-City Speedway. The always entertaining 3/8 mile oval in Pontoon Beach, Illinois will play host to a feature paying $2,000 to the winner. The following night completes an exciting weekend, as the best of the Monster Energy' series will take on the regulars at the St. Francois County Raceway in Farmington, Missouri!
On Saturday, July 30, a 'Bullring Weekend' will be underway when the Macon Speedway in Macon, Illinois will join the already scheduled event on Sunday, July 31, at Shepp's Speedway in Alexander.
Finally, two touring series will collide at the LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle on Sunday, September 25, when the Interstate Racing Association and the Monster Energy' Sprint Series co-sanction an event for the first time! The event is sure to bring some heavy hitters to the exciting 3/8 mile banked oval, as it will compete a weekend that includes the already scheduled $4,000 to win show at the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa!
Meanwhile, plans for Friday's $2,500 to win event at Jacksonville are underway. The tentative driver roster can be found below. Confirmations from Terry McCarl, the winner of the season opener, Danny Lasoski, 2010 ASCS National 'Ronald Laney Hard Charger' Brady Bacon, and former Farmington champ, Tommy Worley Jr., are the latest entries. More are expected in a count that already exceeds 30 cars!
