Take Two: Double Mains Dominate Money Tree Twin 25s Night
Double the features mean double the fun this Saturday, August 15 at Meridian Speedway for Money Tree Twin 25s night. The Winged Pepsi Crate Cars, PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modifieds, Rebel Modifieds of Idaho, Coors Super Stocks, Project Filter Pro-4s, High School Tuners, and Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets skip the heat race pleasantries and jump straight into main event action at the quarter-mile asphalt oval.
The Pepsi Crate Cars throw a wing on it Saturday as the fight for second place in the standings heats up. Justin Segura holds second by just one marker over Tony Ackerland and seven over Nathan Little. Little flew through the pack and scored the victory in the last Winged Pepsi Crate Car event, and if he can repeat he’ll be in prime position to run point leader Rob Grice down.
Bryan Warf and Colton Nelson have traded victories in the last four PitStopUSA.com NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified main events. With just Saturday night’s twin features between Warf, Nelson, and the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified championship, keep your eyes on Nelson’s blue and chartreuse machine.
Coors Super Stock competitor Josh Jackson refuses to go down without a fight as he battles Melissa Arte for the division championship. Forty-one points are all that stand between Jackson and the point lead, and a victory Saturday would both close the gap between himself and Arte, but also give him a fifth win on the season—one more than the defending champion.
Consistency has kept Kenny Chandler in the Project Filter Pro-4 title hunt, and the veteran campaigner looks to extend his string of strong finishes on Money Tree Twin 25s night. But he faces a fast foe in Brendon Fries, who looks to extend his late season win streak to four and extend his 39 point advantage.
Another model of Meridian Speedway consistency has been High School Tuner racer Arin Flagstade. Though his closest competitors have three wins apiece to their credit, Flagstade has finished every race and, though winless, holds a thirty point lead over James Gates and 38 markers over James Strikwerda.
Chaos has dominated the Big Daddy’s Barbecue Hornets schedule in 2018. But through it all James Pahl has embraced his appetite for destruction and leads the charge into Saturday night’s features over Neil Wassmuth and Monica Heath.
Saturday even features the final Hungry Onion Drive Inn Bike Race for Kids.
General admission to a full night of features is just $11.50 for adults, $9 for seniors and military members, and $6.50 for kids 7-11.
