Kansas And Missouri Events On Deck For Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series
Bryan Hulbert – DRUMRIGHT, Okla. (April 18, 2022) Getting back on track for a pair of $4,000 to win, $400 to start events in Kansas and Missouri, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network takes on Salina Speedway in Salina, Kan. on Friday, April 22 and U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo. on Saturday, April 23.
Going into the weekend, Oklahoma’s Wayne Johnson leads the National Tour by 36 markers over defending series champion Blake Hahn. Third currently belongs to Seth Bergman, with Jason Martin and Dylan Westbrook making up the top five.
Ryan Timms, Garet Williamson, Tim Crawley, Landon Britt, and Brandon Anderson complete the top five.
Last visiting Salina Speedway on June 8, 2019, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. became the sixth winner in as many visits to the three-eighths-mile oval. Previous winners include Kevin Swindell (8/16/2012), Seth Bergman (5/31/2013), Jeff Swindell (5/30/2014), Aaron Reutzel (6/19/2015), and Sammy Swindell (6/8/2019). For a fun round of racing trivia, Salina Speedway is the only track to host a National Tour event that Jeff, Sammy, and Kevin Swindell have all won a feature event.
Friday, April 22, opens at 5:00 P.M. with racing at 8:00 P.M. (CDT). Tickets are $20 for adults, with Kids 15 and under admitted free into the grandstands. Pit Passes are $35.
