Three nights of action are on tap with races happening this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The series opened its 2022 season at the 3/10-mile clay oval on Memorial weekend, with points leader Trever Kirkland and James Setters picking up victories.

Kirkland, from nearby Helena, enters the weekend with a commanding 145-point lead over Great Falls driver Kory Wermling. Kirkland is a former champion of the Big Sky Sprints series, a predecessor to the ASCS Frontier Region, but is pursuing his first crown under the ASCS banner. After winning that opening night feature at Electric City Speedway on May 27th, Kirkland has picked up two more wins and numerous podium finishes to help build his lead.
Cars from across the region and also Alberta are expected to compete in this weekend’s races. Multiple classes will be joining the ASCS Frontier Region sprint cars for one or two nights throughout the weekend, including late models, modifieds, midwest modifieds, street stocks and super stocks.
