Double Doubles Anchor Teleperformance Twin 25s Night
The Teleperformance Claimer Stocks take center stage this Saturday, June 16, as Meridian Speedway hosts the Teleperformance Twin 25s. The PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Modifieds, Coors Super Stocks, Project Filter Pro-4s, Domino’s Legends, and Junior Stingers come together to battle for the Racing for Smiles of the Northwest hardware.
Saturday night’s double dashes mark halfway for the Teleperformance Claimer Stocks’ 2018 campaign. Fewer than fifty markers separate the top three point earners as the division rolls into Saturday’s pivotal slugfest. Pat Tully holds the top spot, but lightning-fast Todd Seaver and hard-charging Josh Fanopoulos have a standings shakeup in their sights.
The PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Modifieds also get two stabs at the quarter-mile asphalt oval Saturday. Defending division champion Colton Nelson has raced his way out of early season adversity and into the runner up standings spot. But Nelson needs a strong Saturday night showing if he plans to dethrone championship leader Bryan Warf.
Speedway favorite Melissa Arte has faced her share of adversity in 2018, but as the Coors Super Stocks rumble onto the quarter-mile Saturday the lady racer stands atop the division. But just one slip is all contenders Pat Tully and Josh Jackson need to put their machines between Arte and the 2018 title.
Consistency put Brendon Fries at the head of the class through the first third of the Project Filter Pro-4 season. But after a BOB FM Diamond Cup weekend victory Fries has declared himself a true title contender. Can Fries stay ahead of Project Filter Pro-4 stalwart Kenny Chandler, two-time 2018 winner Ryan Bailey, and budding division star Jordan Harris under the lights Saturday?
Domino’s Legends competitor Ethan Jones has a one hundred percent hit rate heading into the division’s sixth sprint of the season. Jones has claimed all five features thus far in 2018. If Jones claims his sixth-straight Saturday, the young racer will own better than half of this years’ division victories.
The Junior Stingers can no longer be considered the future of Meridian Speedway, as the eleven to fourteen-year-old racers have become stars in their own right. From class leaders Rusty Houpt and Cody Castricone to newcomers Dalton Allen, John Clever, and Sophia Thomson these youngsters routinely engage in some of the quarter-miles’ most entertaining battles. You won’t want to miss the next exciting chapter in the Junior Stingers’ 2018 campaign.
