As the Ti22 Performance FAST on Dirt tour winds down, the battle for the championship is winding up! Three races remain and Cale Conley hold a 122 point lead over Lee Jacobs. It may sound like a big lead, but a sweep of a night can gain 150 points over a very bad night! This weekend’s doubleheader will play a major factor in deciding the 2021 tour champion.
Friday night will find the stars and cars of FAST making their first ever visit to the quick quarter mile at Moler Raceway Park near Williamsburg, Ohio. The following night, they will appear at their old home track, Fremont Speedway, at the Sandusky County Fairgrounds in Fremont, Ohio.
Friday at Moler, gates will open at 4 pm with FAST drivers meeting at 6:15. Engine heat will begin at 6:40 with hot laps scheduled for 7 and racing at 8. Pit passes will be $35 with general admission at $18. There will be no methanol for sale at the track and FAST will have a limited tire selection. Mufflers ARE mandatory at Moler.
On Saturday at Fremont, it will be Root’s Poultry night when the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series joins the show. The FAST winged 410’s will also be joined by the 305 sprint cars and the dirt truck division. Gates will open at 4 pm with driver meeting at 5:30. Pit passes are $30. General admission is $18, seniors are $15, students $10 while 10 and under are free. There will be methanol sales at Fremont. Again, mufflers ARE mandatory.
