By Jon Brown, MERIDIAN, Idaho — Tates Hornets drivers tackle another mini-enduro Wednesday during a rare midweek race night at ASA-sanctioned Meridian Speedway.
Meridian, Idaho’s Colton Nelson, who leads the points battle in both the Hornets season series and the Hornet 100 Series, will look to add to his advantage when the green flag drops on the second Hornet 100 of the season to cap the speedway’s Cricket Dairy Days & Carnival Race Night.
Wednesday will be the only opportunity to see racing action at the historic oval. The speedway is dark Saturday, but will return to life on Saturday, June 23 for the ASA Pro Trucks Series and Lowes Plywood Race for Thunder Dogs.
Nelson holds a 16-point lead over Art Heath of Nampa in the Hornet 100 Series standings. The fourth-generation racecar driver is 109 points ahead of Heath in the overall Hornets season standings.
There’s something for everyone during Wednesday’s show at the quarter-mile paved oval.
Supporting the Hornet 100 are feature races for the Project Filter Pro-4s, the Pepsi Sprints, the B Modifieds and the Thunder Dogs.
The annual Penny Gold Rush for Kids also is scheduled. Children will have the opportunity to collect as many pennies as they can during the contest on the frontstretch after the racers have qualified.
The gates open at 4 p.m. with qualifying at 5 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $7.50 for senior citizens and military personnel with ID, $6 for children ages 7-11 and free for children 6 and younger. A family pass is $30 for two adults and up to four children ages 7-11.
Fans can get $6 tickets for all ages at www.meridianspeedway.com. This price is not available at the gate.
