With the season finale on tap and last weekend’s event at 81 Speedway canceled due to weather conditions, Arcadia, Oklahoma’s Ty Williams still edges ahead of Kansas-native, Zach Blurton, with the Drive to Zero points lead. Williams has a seventy-point advantage over Blurton. Sitting third in point standings is Jeremy Huish, 100 points out of second. Luke Cranston and Jordan Knight complete the top five heading into the final two races of the season.
The United Rebel Sprint Series partnered with Kansas’ Drive to Zero program to offer a $5,000 pay day to the 2021 Series Champion. The Drive to Zero program was designed with one goal in mind – to reduce fatalities and serious injuries that occur on Kansas highways – targeting child passenger safety, impaired driving, texting, and seat belt violations.
