Welcome to the big show! Great weather and great action look to continue this weekend, May 18th and 19th, as the Midwest best Crate series captures its first glance at the St. Louis metro area with stops at the famous Tri-City speedway in Pontoon Beach, IL and St. Francis County Raceway in Farmington, MO.
Mark Oller will be taking his early 6 point series lead into Tri-City’s fast 3/8’s mile, a track that has produce the past 3 UMP Pro Crate Late Model Nation Champions. Tammy and Kevin Gundaker have worked diligently to produce the best dirt racing events in the country and as a result the have created what could be the mecca of crate late model racing. Come out and see stars such as Weber, Dauderman, Walston and Ratajczyk as they continue their trek for the 2012 championship. The $1000 to win $100 to start event will be a good preview to the end of the season ending crate late model “Bud Light 40” where the UMP Crate National Champion will be crowned.
On Saturday the PCRA welcomes a new venue to the Crate late model scene, St. Francis County Raceway in Farmington, Mo. The famous Sprint Car venue has been host to many of the country’s greatest open wheel drivers and this Saturday they look to add to that list of greatness by giving the Crate late model wheelmen a chance to do battle on the fast quarter mile. The event will pay $1000 to win and $100 to start.
