OBERLIN, Kansas (April 13, 2021) – The Drive to Zero POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing is slated to kick-off their 16th season this Saturday, April 17. Competitors will head to 81 Speedway in Wichita, Kansas for the first race of a brimming 32-event schedule in 2021.
Heading into a fresh season, competition is slated to be at its best in 2021. Coming off a slow start and off-schedule year due to restrictions throughout the country last year, the United Rebel Sprint Series looks ahead to the $1000 to win season opener on Saturday. Under new ownership last year, 81 Speedways track surface has been excellent and provides some of the best racing in the state and a great field of cars are slated. Racing starts at 7pm.
The series has partnered with the Drive to Zero program to offer a $5,000 pay day to the 2021 United Rebel Sprint Series Champion.
The Drive to Zero program was built with one goal in mind – to reduce fatalities and serious injuries that occur on Kansas highways. The program is designated to target child passenger safety, impaired driving, texting, and seat belt violations.
