Belleville, IL. (08/14/2020) Back by popular demand, a Border WAR will once again wage on the racing surfaces of Illinois and Missouri. Back to back nights of action on Friday, August 28th and Saturday, August 29th with the POWRi Lucas Oil Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League will see competition from Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois first, then the WAR head’s to Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Missouri to complete the battle.
With both Friday and Saturday’s feature event’s paying $2000 to win, excitement has been added this season as Super Clean has put a $500 bonus on the line for any driver able to win both night’s feature event after traveling across the Interstate 70 corridor. This Saturday night event at Valley Speedway will be the annual Helm Memorial making the event even more special.
The last visit to Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League, Korey Weyant would add to his all-time career win record of fourteen league victories.
