April 8, 2013 – It’s time to get things roaring back into action with some 410 sprint car action in Illinois and Iowa this weekend!  The Midwest Open Wheel Association kicks off their third season in 2013 with an event on Friday at the Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois, and on Saturday at the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa!

The MOWA regulars will have plenty of company this weekend to open the season.  Two-time and defending champion, Jerrod Hull, of Sikeston, Missouri leads the regular competitors expected.  Jimmy Hurley (2 MOWA wins at Jacksonville), former track champion, AJ Bruns (1 win at Jacksonville) and Joey Moughan (1 win at Jacksonville) are expected to contend this weekend as well.

They are expected to be joined by the likes of Jim Moughan Jr., Ben Wagoner, Robbie Standridge, Chris Urish, Jeremy Standridge, Logan Faucon and young Paul Nienhiser, who already recorded a win this season with the Sprint Invaders at 34 Raceway.

Former World of Outlaws pilot Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania and the Buffalo Wild Wings #82 team have expressed interest in this weekend’s events, as has Indianola Iowa’s Dustin Selvage.  Western Pennsylvania’s Jimmy Light and Australia’s Trevor Reynolds are just a couple of other drivers expected to challenge the drivers of MOWA.

Last season, Hurley became the only driver to win more than one feature event at Jacksonville in eight MOWA events.  Other winners over the past three seasons have been Terry McCarl, Hull, Danny Smith, Bruns, Brian Brown and Joey Moughan.

Danny Lasoski has two wins in MOWA competition at 34 Raceway.  Smith and McCarl have the others on the banked 3/8-mile oval.

Pits open at 3 p.m. on Friday in Jacksonville with grandstands opening at 5 p.m.  Racing is slated for 7 p.m.  Admission is $20, with children 12 and under FREE!  For more information, visit www.JacksonvilleSpeedway.com!

The pits open at 4 p.m. on Saturday at 34 Raceway, with grandstands opening at 5 p.m.  Hot laps are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. with racing to follow.  Adult admission is $20, with Seniors priced at $18, students at $15 and children 10 and under are FREE!  For more information, visit www.34Raceway.com!
