Project Filter Twin 25’s Headline Military Appreciation Night
Military members and their families get in free this Saturday, May 20 as Meridian Speedway honors those who protect our freedoms with Military Appreciation Night at the quarter-mile oval. The Project Filter Pro-4s, Pro Trucks, College of Western Idaho Super Stocks, TEAM Mazda Mini Stocks, College of Western Idaho High School Tuners, Queen Bees, and Six Shooters will be on tap for a full night of short track racing action.
The Project Filter Pro-4s reprise their headline role on Military Appreciation Night with the Project Filter Twin 25’s. Can point leader Kenny Chandler use Saturday night’s twin events to increase his point lead, or will Brendon Fries and Joe Barton seize the opportunity to close the gap on the veteran campaigner?
A rowdy pack of Pro Trucks descend on Meridian Speedway this Saturday night. Don’t miss your chance to watch these full-contact competitors trade paint and positions for the first time in 2017.
It took the College of Western Idaho Super Stocks four races to find a repeat winner in 2017. Even with her return trip to the Caleb’s Chop Shop winner’s circle, Melissa Arte holds a slim advantage over fellow main event winners Ben Crow and Daniel Johnson.
Action in the TEAM Mazda Mini Stocks has been fierce through the division’s first two races. Terrell Daffron sits atop the standings going into Saturday night’s action, but he has a rearview mirror full of hard-charging Mike Davis and perennial title contender Jason Sanders.
Taylor Occhipinti has made himself comfortable atop the College of Western Idaho High School Tuner division standings. But Taylor’s sister Kendra looks to lead the charge against her younger brother, and she has a whole pack of challengers looking to follow her to the front.
The Queen Bees and Six Shooters round out a full night of family-friendly racing action.
General admission to Saturday night’s Military Appreciation Night action is just $11 for adults, $8.50 for senior citizens, and 6.50 for kids 7-11. Military members and their families are admitted free of charge Saturday, and as always kids 6 and under also get in free. Gates open at 4 p.m. with qualifying at 5 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m. Log on to meridianspeedway.com for all the latest news from around the quarter-mile and text ‘meridianspeed’ to 84483 to receive exclusive updates.
