Millstadt, IL — (June 23, 2014) — After excessive rainfall postponed the May 16th event, POWRi is rescheduled to run at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, IL on Friday, June 27th. The midgets and micros were unable to race at the ¼ mile dirt high-banked oval during the 2013 season due to scheduling conflicts. However, past feature winners at Fayette County Speedway include Brett Anderson in 2012 and Michael Pickens in 2011.

The POWRi midgets and micros will then head to Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, IN on Saturday, June 28th for the Ford EcoBoost Challenge. The Ford EcoBoost Challenge is a three event series that is sponsored by Ford. Christopher Bell won the first two events at Bloomington Speedway on May 30th and Brownstown Speedway on May 31st. The event at Tri-State Speedway will be the final race of the Ford EcoBoost Challenge.

MAVTV American Reel is set to broadcast the June 28th Ford EcoBoost Challenge finale at Tri-State Speedway. The broadcast will not be live, but will be shown at a later date. Fans will be able to witness the action from home on channel 248 on Dish Network or on channel 214 on DirecTV. MAVTV is also available on other providers.
