TULSA, Oklahoma (June 4, 2019) – Two nights of racing is on tap for the AMERI-FLEX / OCRS Sprint Car Series this weekend and it all starts Friday night at 81 Speedway in Park City Kansas.

Friday will be the second attempt to visit 81 Speedway after rain washed out the May 26 Memorial Weekend show. It will be a night for sprint car fans to remember as NCRA sprints and 305 sprint cars will also be racing in the “Pepsi Pours it on Classic” program. The race cars of yesteryear from the Kansas Antique Racers will take part as well.

Saturday the AMERI-FLEX / OCRS sprinters will travel to Salina Highbanks Speedway to perform in the “Highbanks Rumble” event. It is also the second attempt at racing there after rain stopped the series earlier in May. B-Mods, Super Stocks and Pure Stocks will also be in action.

With five events in the books, 2017 champion Zach Chappell leads the points chase by 22 points over Andrew Deal. Sheldon Barksdale sits in third just one point ahead of defending champion Alex Sewell and rookie Kinzer Edwards holds down the fifth spot.

So far Wayne Johnson, Alex Sewell, Sheldon Barksdale, Kyle Clark, and rookie Jase Randolph have picked up feature wins in the young season.
