After a few weekends off for the busy month of June for winged 410 sprints, The Ti22 Performance Inc. FAST on Dirt tour is ready to return to action. This Saturday, June 26th will find the series making its first ever appearance at Twin Cities Raceway Park near North Vernon, Indiana. Just 4 days later, FAST will headline the “Night The Stars Come Out” at Atomic Speedway with a $7,500 winner’s share on the line for the long running classic. Following Atomic, FAST will join their companion Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series for a doubleheader at Waynesfield Raceway Park in the “Jack Hewitt Classic”.
The big return with 3 events in 8 days will kick off this Saturday at Twin Cities for a 30 lap main event paying the standard FAST on Dirt purse of $3,000 to win and $350 to start. Winged 410 sprint car races have been a scarcity at the Jennings County oval through the years, but racers such as Steve Kinser, Bobby Allen, Kevin Briscoe, Kevin Huntley, Frankie Kerr and many more legends have graced victory lane there against some stellar fields. FAST owner, Aaron Fry, and Twin Cities promoter, Tim Keithly, hope to return winged sprint cars as an annual special event at the racy 3/8 mile oval.
2019 tour champion Cole Duncan now sits atop the point standings and is fresh off an All Star Ohio Sprint Speedweek win at Fremont Speedway. Gary Taylor sits in the runner-up spot with Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley in third. The brother duo of Mitch and Jordan Harble hold down the fourth and fifth spots. Max Stambaugh, Lee Jacobs, Brandon Wimmer, Tyler Gunn and RJ Jacobs round out the top 10.
