NASCAR Brings Missouri Sunday Showdown

Lebanon-I-44-Speedway(LEBANON, MO.) – When NASCAR became the official sanctioning body of Lebanon I-44 Speedway this offseason, track officials had hopes of attracting big name talent and perhaps a high-powered touring series or two. Just six weeks into the inaugural campaign as a NASCAR HomeTrack, Missouri’s only asphalt oval will play host to its second star-studded traveling series as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West comes calling this weekend for a nationally-televised Sunday night special, the Reliable Toyota/G-Oil 150, with a strong contingent of veterans and rising stars.

“Having that NASCAR name directly associated with your track has many benefits, and this is one of them,” Lebanon I-44 Speedway General Manager Kevin Greven said. “We’re able to attract these touring series like the K&Ns and JEGS/CRA All Stars, and consequently bring reputable and well-known talent to the track for the fans to see. Several of these drivers competing in Sunday night’s event will make it to the big leagues of NASCAR.”

K&N Pro Series points leader Derek Thorn leads a talented ensemble of drivers looking to grab the first trophy for the series at Lebanon I-44 Speedway. Fans can look forward to seeing several rising stars including young gun Cameron Hayley and veteran hotshoe Greg Pursley, as the tour runs a 150-lap main event with a mandatory caution at lap 75 to allow teams the opportunity to make changes to their machines.

Two NASCAR Whelen All-American Series weekly divisions will kick off the action as the O’Reilly Auto Parts NASCAR Pro Late Models and Budweiser NASCAR Modifieds round out the night. Gates will open at a special 4 p.m. time with qualifying for the K&N Pro Series West getting underway at 5 p.m. Fans can look forward to seeing the first green flag wave at 6 p.m. sharp. Advance tickets are still available by visiting www.i44speedway.net.

“This is going to be a great chance to see rising stars and enjoy two late model features,” Greven said. “A number of our drivers will be paying close attention because they want to make the jump to a tour like this in the coming years. The big booys go racing on Sunday and we are giving our fans a glimpse of a group that has those plans in their future. You can expect exciting on-track action at a great price with this very special Sunday night show and its thanks to Toyota Motorsports, Reliable Toyota and G-Oil.”

Patrons using Interstate 44 may take Exit 135 and then drive approximately one mile east on Route 66 to the track’s main entrance.
