Double Header Kicks Off NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified Season

Meridian Speedway’s premier NASCAR division debuts Saturday, April 15, for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified Opener. The action continues with the College of Western Idaho Super Stocks, TEAM Mazda Subaru Mini Stocks, Tates Rents Hornets, Junior Stingers, Thunderdogs, and the first Idaho Mountain Touring Bike Races 4 Kids of 2017.

Colton Nelson leads a strong contingent of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds to green Saturday for an opening night double feature. Nelson narrowly missed picking up State Championship honors last year, and begins his 2017 campaign behind the wheel of an all-new machine.   

Daniel Johnson raced away from the College of Western Idaho Super Stock division to score an opening night victory over reigning champion Melissa Arte. Can Johnson hold off Arte and the rest of a tough class to claim his second straight win?

A full field of TEAM Mazda Subaru Mini Stocks is set to pack the pavement. Jason Sanders leads a quick contingent to the green flag Saturday.

The Tates Rents Hornets have honked and bashed their way into Meridian Speedway fans’ hearts. Who will make it through the chaos to claim victory in this division’s return to the quarter-mile?

The Junior Stinger division features tomorrow’s speedway stars as they develop their driving talent.

The rough and rowdy Thunderdogs return to action Saturday after a year hiatus.

Kids, don’t miss your chance to mix it up on the quarter-mile with the Idaho Mountain Touring Bike Races 4 Kids. All you need is a bike and a helmet to take the track and race to the checkers.

General admission to this full night of racing action is just $11 for adults, $6.50 for kids 7-11, and, as always, kids 6 and under get in free. Gates open at 4 p.m. with qualifying at 5 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m.  We’ll see you Saturday, April 15 for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified Opener under the big yellow water tower at your NASCAR Home Track Meridian Speedway.
