Tulsa Oklahoma (May 14, 2012) – Heeding the “Call To Arms”, the warriors of the Oil Capital Racing Series sprint car group are armed to the hilt with winged missiles and are ready to storm into the “Palace of Dirt Tracks”, the Salina Highbanks Speedway in Salina Oklahoma this Saturday night.
After three torrid battles to date, the OCRS combatants will be ready for further clashes when they embark on the wicked highbanks of the grandest facility in the region in the likes of the Salina Highbanks. In 2011, five years after the track was closed by its previous owners, the “Highbanks” re-opened to rave reviews and the OCRS sprint cars made two stops on the 2011 season with Whit “Gasman” Gastineau winning in June and eventual champion Sean McClelland, taking Labor Day holiday hardware home in September. The OCRS warriors are slated for three battles on the Highbanks in 2012 with Saturday’s clash the first of those. With track management adding additional loads upon loads of new clay in the off-season, the racing surface is sure to be at its premium.
Race fans can expect to see new amenities from the track as well. Most specific is the open faced upper level bar on the north end of the enclosed suites that compliments the FinishLine restaurant. On the lower level, fans will find an expansion of the tracks concession area also on the north end. VIP and FinishLine area seating are available for Saturday’s showdown.
Danny “Caretaker” Smith, ‘Jammin’ Jamie Passmore, Rafe Essary, Casey Wills, Whit “Gasman” Gastineau. Casey Wills, Alex Sewell, Josh “Hammer” Toho, Tim & ‘Hotrod’ Kent, Alex Sewell, Shayla “Princess” Waddell and Kenneth Walker are just a handful of warriors expected to take on all challengers on the ultra-fast banked battlefield.
Rest assured that Saturday night will be an action packed affair with high-speed, nail biting, knee knocking, teeth chattering racing experience. Come on out to the “Palace” and see what winged sprint cars can do on a track tailor made for speed, power and agility. Get ready Salina; it’s time for a full-fledged assault in your town!
