(Warrensburg, MO) Just days removed from the Ninth-Annual Tom Wilson Memorial BBQ Bowl, Central Missouri Speedway is ready for more of the best drivers in the business to descend on the track for 98.5 FM the Bar race Night. USRA Modifieds, Street Stocks, B-Modifieds, Pure Stocks and guest class ULMA Late Models will compete this Saturday.
Last weekend, 146 drivers from seven racing divisions, representing 82 different home towns from four different states, competed in a total of 36 events and turned a total of 439 laps on the speedway to thrill the large crowds on hand. The weekend culminated in New Sharon, Iowa’s Zack VanderBeek claiming the $5,000-to-win USRA Modified payday.
This Saturday, weekly championship racing returns in all four regular divisions. Leading the USRA contingent is a pair of Missouri aces with Odessa’s Jim Moody and Sedalia’s Terry Schultz out front. In Street Stock competition, five-time feature winner Brett Wood of Warrensburg leads Jeremiah Wilson of Concordia. Among the strong contingent of B-Modified drivers, four-time feature winner Dean Wille of Warrensburg has the edge over Richard Brainard of Sedalia. In the new Pure Stock class, Gary Akers of Buckner shows the way over Leroy Morrison of Raymore. Note: mention of driver’s name does not guarantee race appearance.
The Lucas Cattle Company ULMA Late Models return for a fourth visit to CMS this weekend as the featured guest class. One driver in particular eager to return to CMS is hometown driver Jon Binning. “I’m really looking forward to racing right in my backyard. I hope the fans come out to support our class as well as drivers to the track. I am looking forward to racing close to home for all of my sponsors,” said Binning, who won the last two ULMA events, held at the speedway in late May.
ULMA drivers will assist in their annual fund-raising event for the popular Homes for Our Troops organization, which builds specially customized homes for returning post 9/11 war veterans who have sustained injuries in the service of their country. The organization will have items on sale and for auction throughout the evening.
