Double Dashes Anchor Military Appreciation Night at Meridian Speedway
Meridian Speedway honors the brave men and women who protect our freedoms this Saturday, May 19, as the quarter-mile asphalt oval hosts Project Filter Military Appreciation night. The Project Filter Pro-4s, Pepsi Crate Cars and ISRL Super Sixes, Coors Super Stocks, Teleperformance Claimer Stocks, TEAM Mazda Mini Stocks, and Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets join forces for a full night of short track racing the way it ought to be.
Project Filter Pro-4 competitors have two opportunities to dethrone division point leader Kenny Chandler this Saturday night. Though billed as Twin 25s, no driver has swept both sprints in the past three years.
Rob Grice flexed his Pepsi Crate Car’s muscles in the division’s 2018 debut. With a fierce trio of competitors on his tail tank, Grice looks to have his hands full as he tries to go two-for-two on Project Filter Military Appreciation Night.
Despite a crop of early-season setbacks, Melissa Arte finds herself just four markers from the top of the Coors Super Stocks heap. Will Arte make her move to the top of the charts Saturday, or can Pat Tully hold station atop the standings?
Todd Seaver and Pat Tully find themselves in a virtual deadlock as the Teleperformance Claimer Stocks rumble to life Saturday. But the top two better keep an eye out for rookie contender Kendra Occhipinti, who looks to break her way into the Caleb’s Chop Shop Winner’s Circle this Saturday.
Jayson Wardle and Mike Davis pace the TEAM Mazda Mini Stock field as they crowd Meridian Speedway for a Project Filter Military Appreciation Night showdown. Watch for Wardle and Davis to take the fight to the field Saturday night as they battle for the Boise Boys Transportation trophy.
Tommy Harrod and Brandon Kelley have split the Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets honors so far in 2018. Who will make his way to the top of the Pepsi-Cola scoreboard to claim the Project Filter Military Appreciation Night checkers?
For those who want to get in on the action, bring a helmet and enter the old grocery getter in the first Spectacular Drags event of the season.
General admission to Saturday’s full night of action is free for military members and their families, $11.50 for adults, $9 for seniors, and $6.50 for kids 7-11.
