It’s officially race week! No more practices, not more get your laps in, it’s time to scoot!
Opening night at SIR is upon us on so is Legend’s Night. We have a couple special things planned to honor some of the greats of SIR and those that built the legendary highbanks. We also get to turn our attention to the current cars and stars on the track.
A renewed line up of events starting with the Bailey Chassis Restrictors out first. Jaxton Wiggs dominated when he came to SIR last year. Will he continue that trend? Ryder Eigenrauch has looked fast in practice and Noah Chitwood has picked up speed each time out.
The Prairie Farms Non-Wing division will take to the track second in the line up and there looks to be a lot of stiff competition here. 2-Time reigning wing champion, Chris Cobin looks to make a run at the Non-Wing title in Bob Britton’s #16. Tyler Rust will be back to compete as well. Tayler Hungate? Logan Null? Who’s your pick?
Third out will be the Williams autobody Sportsman division. WOW. that’s all I have to say for this one. Whose division is this one? Jaxton Wiggs? Dalton Dowdy? Ryan Roy? Rick Odum? Take your pick.
Next on the list is the expanded Ike Family Dealerships JR Sprint Division. Man, it sure looks like we have a crop of drivers coming into this one! We’ve got Reece Palmisano coming back from 2020. Ethan Ellison looks super fast as well. Don’t forget about Titan Cobin who already has one win one the year!
The Chemstream Race Fuels Mod-Lite division cranks out their laps next. Ya’ll like lots of Mod-Lites???? Looks like this division is pumped up as well! Who’s got anything for Matt Filkins? Jeff Billingsley looks fast in his ride. How about Nathan Smith? Billy Beard? Dustin Ledbetter? We’re excited to see a crop of mod-lites!
The Maier’s Tidy Bowl division rolls out 6th on the night. We fully expect Cody and Chris Maier to continue to battle it out here along with Jeff Billingsley. What about the Hutchinson brothers? OR…Ralph Halleran!!
Rounding out the night will be the Driven Midwest Winged Outlaw division. 2 time reigning champ Chris Cobin returns to go for a three-peat. Aiden Purdue and Joe B Miller will surely make appearances. Brocton Williams also has a few tricks up his sleeve. This division shoul dbe exciting regardless!!
