Supermodifieds Return to Diamond Cup Lineup
Fire and fury return to Meridian Speedway this Friday and Saturday night as Supermodifieds reclaim their spot in the Bob FM Diamond Cup presented by Star Diamonds lineup. Joining the Supermodifieds for both nights of racing action are the Royal Purple Northwest Sprintcar Racing Association Winged Sprintcars and the Royal Purple Modified Series. Friday night also features the TATES Rents Hornets. Saturday night’s action includes the Honda Performance Development Midgets, College of Western Idaho High School Tuners, Six Shooters, Spectacular Drags and fireworks.
After a decade away from the concrete jungle, the ground-pounding roar of Supermodifieds returns to the Treasure Valley both Friday and Saturday night. Purebred for wicked speed and turn-on-a-dime agility, you won’t want to miss a second of Supermodified action as they compete for one of the twin Star Diamonds diamond rings up for grabs this weekend.
