The Ti22 Performance Inc – FAST on Dirt winged 410 sprint car series roars back into action this weekend and next with some BIG money on the line. This weekend, the tour returns to I-96 Speedway Friday night, for the first time since 2019 after a year off for the COVID pandemic. On Saturday, the tour moves on to its old home, the historic Fremont Speedway at the Sandusky County Fairgrounds.
Just one week later, FAST will be engaged all weekend at the bullet fast West Virginia Motor Speedway in Mineral Wells. On Friday, August 6th, a preliminary main event will pay $5,000 to win with the Saturday, August 7th show paying an incredible $20,000 to win and $1,000 just to start the race!
Heading into this weekend, Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley holds the series points lead. 2019 tour champion Cole Duncan sits in the runner-up spot with the 2019 winner at I-96, Lee Jacobs, in the 3rd spot.
