Remember: this show has a $140,000 purse with the NSL guys running for $5,000 on Thursday and $10,000 on Friday. The ASCS guys are running for $3,000 on Thursday and $4,000 on Friday. If one driver can win all four shows, there is a $20,000 bonus. See you at I-80 Speedway on Thursday...the weather looks great.
UPDATE #2 - FACT - (7-21-15 @ 11:25 am CST) - What has been billed as the The Road To Knoxville event at I-80 Speedway has gotten better. Originally, the purse was set at $125,000 for the NSL and ASCS National tour double header. That has been bumped up to $140,000. There are a lot of drivers that are expected to participate in this great event. I have confirmed that California driver Willie Croft will be stopping by on his way to Knoxville. He will be doing double duty and running the 410 and 360. Justin Cox stated that he will most likely be stopping by as well.
This is the largest sprint car pay out in Nebraska sprint car racing history. Racing will start at 7:00 both nights. Ticket prices are $35.00 and $10.00 for ages 6-10. You can get a $6.00 discount coupon at local U-Stops, O'Reilly Auto Parts, and Casey's General Stores. Mark your calendars.
UPDATE #1 - FACT - (5-29-15 @ 4:00 pm CST) - It is official...the ASCS just released the official press release stating that the ASCS National tour will be a part of this great event. The ASCS will bring their show to town and share the spotlight with the National Sprint Tour. Two different sanctioning bodies at the same track for a two day show. The ASCS portion of the event will pay $3,000 to win the first night and $4,000 to win the second night.
Race fans in the upper Midwest should get excited for this event. Stay tuned for more details as they come available.
