SPENCER, Iowa (September 12, 2021) Funnel Cakes, Ferris Wheels, Concerts, Agriculture, just some of what makes a County Fair fun, but “The World’s Greatest County Fair” wouldn’t be complete without a little dirt track racing, and that’s just what’s on tap on Tuesday, September 14 at Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa.
The first time the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network has seen action at the three-eighths-mile oval; Clay County Fair Speedway is the seventh Iowa oval to welcome the National Tour with Tuesday’s “Battle of the Blue Ribbon” paying $3,000 to win, $400 to start.
Going into the mid-week showdown, Blake Hahn continues to lead the tour standings. Picking up his sixth victory of the season this past Saturday at I-80 Speedway, Hahn was able to pad his lead by a few points but still has Matt Covington within 63 markers and J.J. Hickle only 76 points back. Looking to Tuesday and beyond, the next week of racing could swing the championship one of any direction as the race on Tuesday is followed by the $10,000 to win, Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway on September 16, 17, and 18.
Joined by Late Models ($2,000 to win) and Stock Cars ($1,000 to win), Clay County Fair Speedway will open the pits at 2:00 P.M. and Grandstands at 6:00 P.M. with racing at 7:30 P.M. (CDT). Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for Kids 10 and under. Pits are $35. Tickets are available at https://tickets.midwestix.com/event/lucas-oil-tri-state-ccf21, by phone at (515) 244-2771, or at the Grandstand Ticket Office.
