TULSA, Okla. (August 3, 2011) – With Kansas City’s Lakeside Speedway currently appearing to be more a part of a lake than beside a lake, the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region schedule has been adjusted accordingly.
Flooding at the ½-mile Lakeside Speedway has forced the cancellation of the two-night tilt on Friday and Saturday, August 19-20. In its place on Friday night, the ASCS Warriors will take to Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, MO.
The Friday night card at Grain Valley will make for a weekend double, as the ASCS Warriors will make the annual stop at Sedalia’s historic half-mile State Fair Speedway on Sunday night.
Currently, Sprint Car rookie contendner Brad Loyet of Sunset Hills, MO, is atop the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior point charts with an 89-point advantage over four-time Warrior champion Randy Martin. Kyle Bellm, Jonathan Cornell and Mark Shirshekan round out the current top five in ASCS Warrior points.
The inaugural season of Speedway Motors Warrior Region action under the ASCS banner currently consists of 18 nights of competition at nine different tracks throughout Missouri and into Kansas.
The 2011 season marks the 20th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing for the American Sprint Car Series, with approximately 200 nights of competition at tracks throughout the nation and into Canada. Anchored by the Lucas Oil Sprint Car Series presented by K&N Filters, ASCS also consists of ten different Regions throughout the nation.
