Five Seasons to be Settled on Weed Man Lawn Care Championship Saturday
The first round of 2018 champions are crowned this Saturday, October 13, as Meridian Speedway hosts Weed Man Lawn Care Championship Night. The Mountain Dew Interstate Winged Sprintcars, Pepsi Crate Cars and ISRL Super Sixes, Domino’s Legends, Coors Super Stocks, and Bombers cap their seasons Saturday, while the Project Filter Pro-4s and Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets battle to position themselves for the year’s final event.
Twin wins for Colton Nelson in the Mountain Dew Interstate Winged Sprintcars’ last event have brought him within 98 markers of division leader Bryan Warf. Nelson would like nothing more than to dethrone the division leader after Warf usurped Nelson for the PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Modified championship. Who will reign supreme when the checkers fall on the winged sprintcar season?
Eight different drivers have scored victories in the combined Pepsi Crate Car and Idaho Sprintcar and Roadster League Super Sixes in 2018, but only Rob Grice has taken multiple trips to the Caleb’s Chop Shop Winner’s Circle. As Grice takes his victory lap Saturday, the battle for third place in the standings heats up as Nate Little looks to close the two point gap between himself and third place Justin Segura.
The Domino’s Legends also have a tight battle for third in the standings as Ken Frickey, Brok Kidd, and Caity Miller each have a shot to overtake Zach Telford. Find out who walks away with the final podium spot Saturday.
Melissa Arte overcame a slow start to her Coors Super Stock season to extend her championship streak. While Saturday night’s action is academic to the division’s overall winner, Tommy Harrod, Gale Carter, and Chuck Youngblood still have a shot as second place honors.
After a wild debut season, the Bombers cap their 2018 campaign Saturday. Mirinda Miles leads James Sheets and Doug McGarva to green in the division’s final sprint.
Though not an official championship race, the complexion of the Project Filter Pro-4 season hangs in the balance Saturday. With double main event wins Kenny Chandler clawed his way back into the championship picture, but with 26 points between he and standings leader Brendon Fries, the veteran racer must keep up his winning ways if he’s wants the Project Filter Pro-4 title.
James Pahl leads a horde of Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets into their penultimate event of the season.
