KANSAS CITY, Kan. (September 7, 2022) NASCAR Weekend in Kansas City is not complete without a little dirt, and the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network is set to serve it up on Thursday, September 8 at Lakeside Speedway.
Roughly eight miles from Kansas Speedway, the Thursday showdown is part of a two-night run through the state of Kansas, with both happening only minutes from start boundaries. Rolling southwest from the half-mile oval, the series will take on Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kan. on Saturday, September 10, which is just north of the Oklahoma line.
The second time the tour will visit Lakeside Speedway this year, the August visit saw a thrilling last corner pass for the win by Blake Hahn over Matt Covington to become the seventh winner in just as many trips to the Kansas oval since 2007. Previous winners include Gary Wright (2007), Wayne Johnson (2008), Brian Brown (2016), Aaron Reutzel (2017), Seth Bergman (2018), and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. (2021).
Thursday’s show is co-sanctioned with the ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps and includes B-Mods ($700 to win) and E-Mods ($1,000 to win). Sprint Cars will race for $3,000 to win, $400 to start.
On September 8, Pits will be open for teams to pull in all afternoon. Grandstands open at 6:00 P.M. with racing at 8:00 P.M. (CDT). Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and military, $10 for youth (13-15), and free for kids 12 and under. Pits are $40. Lakeside Speedway is located at 5615 Wolcott Dr. in Kansas City, Kan.

The fifth time the tour has taken on Caney Valley Speedway, the $4,000 to win, $400 to start, Sooner/Shocker Showdown, like Lakeside, is the second time the tour has been there in 2022. There during Speedweek, Canada’s Dylan Westbrook took the win, making three straight races topped by a Hills Racing driver, with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. taking the win in 2020. The only other visit occurred in 1993, with Gary Wright winning.
Featuring fireworks following the races, the night is co-sanctioned with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products and will also include Factory Stocks, Pure Stocks, and USRA Tuners.
