The 2017 Meyers Racing Engines National Points chase kicks off the 2017 URSS racing season with a URSS/SSO co-sanctioned show this Saturday April 1st at Longdale Speedway in Longdale OK. Last year the URSS Rebels made one appearance at the lightning quick 3/8’s mile oval with Luke Cranston besting a twenty-six car field that ran the full twenty-five lap feature caution free with a time of six minutes and forty-seven seconds.
Cranston worked his way up to the leader Cody Whitworth to snag the point with two laps to go to take the victory and solidify his Myers Racing Engines Nationals Points lead. The Longdale Speedway was a favorite of the URSS drivers that made the pull, the track surface, pit layout and speed of the show was fantastic and the URSS/SSO drivers put on a whale of a show for the fans that night.
URSS Drivers that will be making the tow will be 3 time URSS National Champion Jake Bubak, 2016 IMCA Rookie of the year Zach Blurton, veterans Mike Peters and Brian Herbert, Ty Williams, Keefe Hemel, Tyler and Jordan Knight, Steven Richardson, Taylor Velasquez, Jed Werner, and many more will kick off the new season in hopes of wrestling the URSS season crown away from 2016 National URSS Champion, Luke Cranston.
